As the term ends and we farewell our Year 12’s from their last lessons here at Marian you cannot help but be infected by a sense of pride that both teachers and students have of the College. This is evident in the many farewell gifts from teachers to students and from students to teachers that we saw being exchanged in the forms of handshakes, cakes and just a general thank you as they concluded their final day. It showed a general admiration and respect for each other in what has been a long academic and wellbeing journey.
Also in the past fortnight the College has been busy organising for the final assembly that will take place next Wednesday the 20th. Here we will officially say goodbye before they bunker down in preparation for their HSC.
TOURNAMENT OF MINDS
Marian students and parents travelled to Sturt Public School on Sunday, 27th August, to participate in Tournament of Minds. TOM aims to enhance the potential of our youth by developing diverse skills, enterprise, time management, and the discipline to work collaboratively within a competitive environment. This year we had three teams competing within three different disciplines:
- Science Technology
- Engineering Mathematics
- Social Sciences
Every student actively contributed to their team, collaborating ideas, time and their individual talents, to produce some outstanding presentations. The ingenuity that was on display by these students, and their ability to solve their chosen problem in a unique and creative manner is a testament to the work and dedication of each student, their teachers, in particular Ms Robertson and Mr Chowdhury. Whilst our teams were not successful on the day, they achieved much and should be proud of their efforts.
