ATSI Teaching Scholarshiphttp://www.smcm.qld.edu.au/News-&-Events/SMC-Top-News-Stories/Pages/ATSI-Teaching-Scholarship.aspxATSI Teaching Scholarship<p>On Thursday 24 May 2018, Tahnae Hunter, a former St Mary's College student was presented an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI), Brisbane Catholic Education (BCE) Teaching Scholarship at the College. Visiting guests from BCE attended the College to present the scholarship as well as Aboriginal elder Aunty Karen.<br></p><p>Tahnae, is currently studying a Bachelor of Physical Education (Secondary) at QUT in Brisbane. This prestigious scholarship will enable Tahnae to be encouraged and supported through Brisbane Catholic Education to become a successful teacher with a dedicated mentor. His mentor is Phil McGahan from St Mary's College. Part of the scholarship enables Tahnae to work in a BCE school as a school support officer. He is currently working at Mt Maria College in Brisbane one day a week in conjunction with his university studies. Part of his responsibilities include rugby league coaching and support work.</p><p>The reasons that Tahnae has been selected for this scholarship are due to his strong work ethic, community involvement and dedication to developing capacity in others. Some of his efforts and achievements include completing a school based Cert III in Sports and Recreation with the Australian Rugby League, receiving outstanding feedback from primary school teachers on his ability to develop a rapport with primary school children; he attended St Mary's College and graduated Year 12 in 2017; he was Archer House Captain at the College where he was an inspiration to his fellow Archer students and a great role model for being involved in all aspects of college life for example the College musical, sport, house activities to name just a few. He was the open rugby league captain last year and coached the under 13 rugby league team in 2016. He was a leader of the Deadly Choices program. He always led the College with the Acknowledgement of Country at assemblies and important occasions. The College assisted Tahnae in becoming an Indigenous volunteer at the Commonwealth Games this year, which was well deserved considering the extent of his community and sporting involvement.</p><p>Tahnae is an inspiration to his peers in the wider community and St Mary's College is very proud of his achievements. <br></p><p><img src="/News-%26-Events/SMC-Top-News-Stories/PublishingImages/Tahnae%20Hunter%20scholarship%20(12)%20(Small).jpg" alt="Tahnae Hunter scholarship (12) (Small).jpg" class="ms-rteImage-2" style="margin:5px;width:634px;" /><br></p><p><img src="/News-%26-Events/SMC-Top-News-Stories/PublishingImages/Tahnae%20Hunter%20(Small).jpg" alt="Tahnae Hunter (Small).jpg" class="ms-rteImage-2" style="margin:5px;" /><br><br></p>
