With exam week fast approaching, students have also managed to demonstrate balance between academic, creative and cultural pursuits.

On Sunday 19 August, twelve Mandarin students from Queensland Academies Health Sciences campus took part in the annual MLTAQ Speech Competition at Griffith University. Exemplifying the IB Learner Profile attributes, all students proved to be Knowledgeable, Communicators and Risk Takers. At the same time, Year 12 students Song Jin Loh, Yi Ni Kong, Hannah Lee together with Year 11 student Olivia McNab performed a very beautiful Chinese Ribbon dance, which was the highlight of this event.

Earlier this term, many students from the Queensland Academy for Science Mathematics and Technology robotics program participated in the Queensland Robocup state competition. These students worked incredibly hard – one team gaining a place in 2nd in the Open Maze category. This amazing achievement – and other milestones -has resulted in the teams’ qualifying to compete in the Australasian National competition later this year. The robotics program is seeking support from local businesses to support the endeavour and make the participation at this event and others such as the FIRST Tech Challenge possible. If you are interested in donating, please contact QASMT for further information. An acknowledgement of your contribution at future Robotics Program events (such as the Brisbane Regional FLL competition hosted at QASMT, and in all participation in robotics events) will be made.
