Student Activities

 

​During the year the international students participate in a wide variety of whole school activities as well as activities especially organized for them. For some of the activities we ask that the international students invite a local friend to also participate.

  

At the beginning of the year we have a welcome Fish n Chips lunch.

    

 

Kotona Tanaka ( Study abroad student from Japan) organized the rest of the international students and they had fun making and selling Yummy Sushi. Very popular with the local students as well.

 

   

 
 

In May our international students invited a local school friend to a BBQ held  after school. Some of our students turned out to be excellent snag cooks! After eating, the students had fun playing badminton and volleyball. This was a really fun afternoon and a great opportunity for the international students to socialize with the local domestic students.



 





Our big adventure for 2016 was hopping aboard a catamaran and heading into open waters to whale watch. It was a beautiful sunny day, the sea calm and oops…yes some of us were sea sick! We did see many whales and some of us enjoyed a great on board lunch.  

            
 

Our International students on Year 11 Camp at Emu Gully, an outdoor education centre that is run with an ANZAC theme. Emu Gully is located near Helidon about 15km east of Toowoomba. Activities are designed to educate leadership through ANZAC virtues and include a range of strenuous adventure activities, swimming, driving twister buggies and paintball.

 
 
 
 
At the beginning of the year we also have our new students spend an afternoon in the Leadership Training Centre where they try the high ropes and indoor rock climbing activities. 
 
 
 
Most of the international students participated in our evening swimming carnival and enjoyed cheering on the swimmers.
 
 
 
 
In May, 2013 five our international students joined other students from other schools for a 3 day tour to the Great Barrier Reef where they had a great time enjoying a relaxing time with our wild life and on the beach.
