Students Shine Light for Othershttp://www.smcm.qld.edu.au/News-&-Events/SMC-Top-News-Stories/Pages/Solar-Buddies.aspxStudents Shine Light for Others<div>Year 9 science students at St Mary’s College have been busy constructing solar lights as part of the SolarBuddy initiative. They are donating 25 solar lights to help 1.4 billion students who do not have access to modern electricity. SolarBuddy is a registered Australian charity dedicated to educating and empowering the next generation of children living in energy poverty.<br></div><div><br></div><div>St Mary’s College P & F purchased the solar lights for the Year 9 students. President Mr James Redmond said “when the P & F were approached to support this initiative, we believed it was a great program for our students to participate in. Not only is it relevant to the content that the students are studying they are learning about social justice and how they can assist students less fortunate than themselves”.<br></div><div><br></div><div>Students had to learn about electricity, how to construct circuits and how solar power works. They also had to research information about the SolarBuddy program and why the charity is trying to change the lives of so many children.<br></div><div><br></div><div>Learning Leader- Science, Mathematics and PE at St Mary’s College, Mrs Krissy Lourigan said “The SolarBuddy program helps children living in energy poverty study 38% longer than those who do not have access to the solar lights. The students really enjoyed putting the solar lights together knowing they are helping other children around the world with their education”.<br></div><div><br></div><div>“I feel good about helping others who don’t have access to electricity 24/7 like we do in Australia” said Year 9 student Chelsea Mugford. <br></div><div><br></div><div>“We learnt that not only can the students' study longer, but it is also helping with their health as they don’t have to rely on kerosene lamps at night. That can only be a good thing” said Rose Elmer.<br></div><div><br></div><div>As part of the program, the students had to write a letter to their SolarBuddy, introducing themselves, explaining how the solar light works and how it will benefit their education. “Hopefully we will get a letter back from our SolarBuddy, telling us about themselves. We may even be able to write to each other regularly” explained Rex Peers.<br></div><div><br></div><div>For information about the SolarBuddy program visit their website. <a href="https://solarbuddy.org/">https://solarbuddy.org/​​</a><br></div><div><img src="/PublishingImages/SolarBuddy%20small.JPG" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:500px;height:333px;" /><br></div>

Buzz...buzz...CONGRATULATIONS!!http://www.smcm.qld.edu.au/News-&-Events/SMC-Top-News-Stories/Pages/Buzz...buzz...CONGRATULATIONS!!.aspxBuzz...buzz...CONGRATULATIONS!!<div>​​Station Square Spelling Bee 2019.<br></div><div><strong>Buzz…</strong><strong>Buzz..</strong><strong>CONGRATULATIONS!! </strong></div><div><strong><br></strong></div><div>Over the past 2 weekends Station square was a buzz of activity with the annual interschool Spelling Bee. In previous years the College has not had any students willing to go into battle in the spelling arena. However, 2018 has been the complete opposite all thanks to six highly motivated Year 7 students who took up the challenge. They are seasoned players in this mental sport having represented St Mary’s Primary in previous years.  Thus our 2 teams of three began practising diligently at home coached by their parents. <br></div><div><br></div><div>Saturday 20th October was seriously exciting. The words were tricky, including some that were very unfamiliar. SMC Team One – Alexandrea Rossiter, Anneka Haman and Jearen Rivero – won the heat. SMC Team Two – Bonnie Quinn-Hennessey, Noah Tye and Billy Poulter needed to win a tie-breaker to also enter the final. They did this with flourish, spelling the word SOLECISM, not a word that would generally be familiar to a Year 7 student. </div><div>Saturday 27th October was now a St Mary’s Final showdown. It was so rewarding to see the students work together in their teams. After 10 very tricky words Team Two, leading by one, was declared the winner. Team One was gracious in defeat. My sincere thanks to the parents who assisted and supported their students in preparation for this competition. The students were  excellent ambassadors for our College and are very keen to return next year. There is the added incentive of winning an iPhone and other great prizes courtesy of the Sponsors and also Station Square Shopping Centre.<br></div><div><br></div><div><img src="/PublishingImages/spelling%20bee%202018.JPG" alt="" style="margin:5px;" /><br></div><p>​<br></p>
Addams Family Musicalhttp://www.smcm.qld.edu.au/News-&-Events/SMC-Top-News-Stories/Pages/Addams-Family-Musical.aspxAddams Family Musical<div><p>​​This year I had the absolute pleasure of directing The Addams Family Musical. It was a brilliant show that enabled students to create musical magic on our very own stage, whilst challenging them to create character through action, singing and dance. The performance of this musical will certainly be one to remember fondly. <br></p><p>Our gratitude must go to Mr Tim Chamberlain for his amazing set design and construction.  His willing team of painters spent some of their holidays making the set come to life.  Many thanks to Assistant Director Mr Jonathan Canning for his support and energy, Jenny Imhoff for her costume creations, with the assistance of Mrs Coral Lynch and Mrs Cathy Evans. Lastly, but certainly not least, Miss Alice Foddy was a great support throughout the entire production and taught everyone how to bunny hop with her dance squad additions.​<br></p><p>Musicals are a lot of work, but the benefits of making fantastic friends and creating lifelong memories mean that they are something every student should consider participating in at some point in their school life. Now the big question is – what next? <br></p><p><em><strong>Tracy Wright</strong></em><br></p><br></div><div style="text-align:center;"><img src="/News-%26-Events/PublishingImages/Addams%20Family%20Poster.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;" /><br> </div><p>​​​​<br><br></p>
