Fraser Coast Tech Hub at St Mary's Collegehttp://www.smcm.qld.edu.au/News-And-Events/SMC-Top-News-Stories/Pages/Fraser-Coast-Tech-Hub-at-St-Mary's-College.aspxFraser Coast Tech Hub at St Mary's College<div>​​​From 2018, St Mary’s College will offer a Tech Hub for senior students on the Fraser Coast. Students from various schools in the region have enrolled in the Certificate III Information, Digital Media and Technology (Networking) course starting next year. Successful completion of the course will give students direct entry into a Bachelor of Web Design and Production, and a Bachelor of Games and Interactive Design courses at the new University of Canberra campus at Southbank in Brisbane. The course will be offered at St Mary’s College campus which has excellent facilities offering all of the latest technology. Students will be supported by a qualified IT teacher. According to teacher Phil McGahan “St Mary’s College has a very positive relationship with all Queensland universities and we aim to provide our senior students with an array of opportunities in the senior curriculum. This is a course that not only will provide a direct entry into university courses but will also equip students with the necessary skills required in the 21st century workplace”.<br></div><div><br></div><div>These courses are open to all senior students on the Fraser Coast. Currently there are students enrolled from St Mary’s, St James Lutheran College, Aldridge SHS and Xavier College. This is the first time a Queensland school has offered a Tech Hub for students from various schools to attend at the same time. <br></div><div><br></div><div>Other courses offered at St Mary’s College include Certificate IV in Crime and Justice, Certificate III in Early Childhood and Care, Certificate III in Information, Certificate III in Sport and Recreation, Certificate II in Hospitality, Certificate II in Infrastructure and Resourcing (Work Preparation), and Certificate II in Tourism. “Completing the Certificate IV course in Crime and Justice has been advantageous for me as I am interested in the legal system and how it works and I also get 8 QCE points. It is also great to have the opportunity to get a direct entry into the Bachelor of Criminology course at the University of Sunshine Coast”. Year 12 student Tajanna Parmenter.<br></div><div><br></div><div>The College has its own dedicated Pathways Centre which assist students in their future life choices. It also has close partnerships with Queensland University of Technology (QUT) University of Technology (UT), University of Queensland (UQ), Australian Catholic University (ACU) and University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) universities, enabling students to gain access to participate in various programs and courses as well as visits. At UQ students are invited to enter the Science Ambassador Program, Young Scholars Program and Year 12 campus visits. At QUT students can participate in STEM Camps, Camus visits and Indigenous Entry Programs. At ACU an Early Achievers Program, Campus visits and Bonus Scheme Programs for University Entrance are offered. CQU offers Camus Visits, Presentations, University Experience Day and a Titration Competition. USC offers Early Offer Guarantee Program for Year 12 students, University Experience Days, Campus visits and a Leaders Program for St Mary’s College students. St Mary’s currently has five Year 12 students with direct entry into different universities after passing head start courses in Engineering, Psychology, Education, Nursing and the Arts. <br></div><div><br></div><div>“Completing a University Head Start subject in Engineering in Year 11 enabled me to achieve outstanding results in my Senior Physics class this year. It is also good knowing that I have direct entry into an Engineering course at the university.” Year 12 student Greta Stephensen.<br></div><div>​<br></div><div>There has been a concern lately that Fraser Coast senior students have not been achieving as well as their city counterparts. Staff at St Mary’s College believe that there are many students who are succeeding in their chosen areas and are pursuing post schooling pathways to success. This is very encouraging news for our region as more opportunities are becoming available for our youth to succeed in life. The new Tech Hub at St Mary’s will be a great asset for the region’s students who are keen to make headways in a modern technological age.</div><div><br><img src="/News-And-Events/SMC-Top-News-Stories/PublishingImages/Virtual%20Reality.jpg" class="ms-rteImage-2" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:621px;height:420px;" />​<br><br></div><p><br></p>
Shaking and Stirring in Queensland’s Shakefesthttp://www.smcm.qld.edu.au/News-And-Events/SMC-Top-News-Stories/Pages/Shaking-and-Stirring-in-Queensland’s-Shakefest.aspxShaking and Stirring in Queensland’s Shakefest<div>​​​​Students from St Mary’s College celebrated placing second in the Group Scene section at the recent state finals of the Shakespeare festival ‘Shake Fest’ held at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts in Brisbane. St Mary’s competed against students from all over Queensland with their adaptation of the play within a play from Midsummer Night’s Dream. <br></div><div><br></div><div>Eight students travelled down early Friday morning to participate in workshops run by staff from acclaimed theatre company ‘Shake and Stir’ who organise the annual festival. The students won the regional competition in September and were very excited to have the opportunity to compete at a state level.<br></div><div><br></div><div>Although there were no prizes awarded as such, students, regardless of their final placings, have an opportunity to work on a Shakespearean production staged in conjunction with Shake and Stir Theatre to be produced early next year. </div><div>The ‘Shake Fest’ competition features nearly 5000 entrants from all over the State competing in categories including Group Scenes, Monologues, Dance, Design and Music. Entrants are to use any Shakespeare text as inspiration for their work and can adapt and update as they want although they must strive to keep the integrity of the original text. <br></div><div><br></div><div>St Mary’s student Hadyn Imhoff said “It was really great to be able to work with different schools and then have the experience of performing our scene.”<br></div><div><img src="/News-And-Events/SMC-Top-News-Stories/PublishingImages/St%20Mary%27s%20Students%20at%20Shake%20Fest%20(Small).JPG" class="ms-rteImage-2" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:498px;height:344px;" /><br></div><div><br><br></div><p><br></p>
Music Tour 2017http://www.smcm.qld.edu.au/News-And-Events/SMC-Top-News-Stories/Pages/Music-Tour-2017.aspxMusic Tour 2017<div>Sunday 14 May saw 20 of St Mary’s most talented music students embark on our first ever Music Tour. This experience not only gave us an insight into musical life at a tertiary level, but allowed us the time and space to fully immerse ourselves in musical learning and grow as a community. <br> <br>Our first day involved a lot of travel, followed by a concert by the Toowoomba Concert Orchestra. The highlight of this performance was definitely the classical guitar concerto, which showed incredible virtuosity and musicality. We then settled in to our accommodation at USQ, and finished the day with a friendly game of music trivia (who would have thought the record for a drumming marathon was 133 hours!)<br><br>For the next three days, we began every morning with intensive rehearsals. We then participated in various university lectures with staff from the USQ Creative Arts program. We recorded songs we were working on, joined in aural workshops, watched a concert rehearsal, and created our own arrangements and performances with the help of university lecturers. When we weren’t playing and creating music we took some time to enjoy some key cultural landmarks of Toowoomba, including The Empire Theatre and the Japanese Gardens. Our tour concluded with a performance for the 160 students of Yarraman State School. It was great to see our audience enjoy our concert, and see that all the hard work we had done over the tour resulted in a quality performance!<br> <br>Our students from St Mary’s College demonstrated exceptional focus, diligence, and at times, considerable resilience throughout this tour. They have shown the joy and sense of community that can be created by engaging in an extended period of musical learning. Their talent and determined attitude impressed everyone they interacted with during their time in Toowoomba .<br><br>Special thanks need to go to Mr Meertens who drove the bus, Mrs Wright and Miss Franklin for their organisation, and the staff at USQ for donating their time and expertise.</div><div> </div><div><img alt="After Tour performance at Yarraman State School.jpg" src="/News-And-Events/SMC-Top-News-Stories/PublishingImages/After%20Tour%20performance%20at%20Yarraman%20State%20School.jpg" class="ms-rteImage-2" style="margin:5px;width:604px;height:404px;" />​</div>
Science and Engineering Challenge 2017http://www.smcm.qld.edu.au/News-And-Events/SMC-Top-News-Stories/Pages/Science-and-Engineering-Challenge.aspxScience and Engineering Challenge 2017<p>On Friday the 5 of May, Year 9 and 10 students ventured down to Hervey Bay, to compete in the annual Science and Engineering Challenge. The students were organised into groups of 3 or 4 and set various engineering tasks in competition with other school around the Fraser Coast Region. Students competed in a range of challenges throughout the day including building a mars rover robot, creating a catapult, communicating in code, making a bionic arm, designing flat packs and much more.<br></p><p>An absolute stellar effort put in by all students and the students performed exceptionally well. Each challenge gains the College points and even though we were one team short compared to the other competing schools, when all the individual team points were added together we still managed to get 3rd place overall. Special mention must go to Molly Clark, Lilly Peitso and Alicia Davenport who built a bridge that was the first one tested in Queensland to be able to hold the 'bridge buster' weight. Many of the students on the day made mention of the fact that they were thankful for their learnings in the newly developed STEM subject that they were undertaking, as it certainly helped them in their planning and design processes.</p><p>Overall an extremely enjoyable day, "It is so good to see the students given the opportunity to practically apply the knowledge that we are giving them in class in such an interesting forum" comment Miss Foddy and Mrs Elmer.</p><p>  ​<img src="/News-And-Events/SMC-Top-News-Stories/PublishingImages/science%20challenge%20picsm.jpg" class="ms-rteImage-2" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:600px;height:370px;" /><br><br></p> ​​​<br>
