Last week Sue Wegert and myself had the opportunity to visit the Torres Strait to promote our wonderful school. We visited the western islands spending the week visiting the communities, meeting current families and welcoming prospective families to the fold. It was my first time to the Torres Strait and apart from the small plane flights, every day was a highlight. We flew into Horn Island and ferried over to Thursday Island where we visited Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Primary School, met the staff and students and discussed with them the many benefits our College has to offer. We also visited the islands of Badu, Saibai, Boigu, Mabuiag and Hammond. The main focus of our trip was to meet the families of present students, to discuss how they were coping, the highs and lows of boarding away from home and to maintain that strong link and bond between family and school.

Torres Strait Island visitWe also spoke to other local families about future enrolments and the many opportunities that the MSB school community can provide. The feedback we received was very positive and we have many happy and excited families. Their hospitality was amazing, not to mention the wonderful food and company. During the week we enrolled 12 new students who will be joining our community during the course of this year. A special thanks to the families we met for their wonderful welcoming of us into their community. Thanks also to Althea Collins our enrolments officer for her fantastic “travel agency” skills. I also thank our Office Manager Sue Wegert for her exceptional company, expertise and organisational skills which ensured the week ran like clockwork.

Congratulations to Edith, Rizah & Elizabeth (photos L-R) on their selection into the girls NRL Nth Qld team. They will be competing over the Queens Birthday weekend in Townsville. Well done and good luck in the upcoming competition.



During Term 2, we will be presenting workshops for students targeting resume writing, job applications and interview skills, and into term 3 we will be looking at University and TAFE application process. Year 10 and 12 students will be visiting the BLA Careers and Education Expo next Thursday 21st May, to further inform their pathway planning. This will be valuable information for both cohorts—year 12s working towards their next phase of life, and year 10s moving into Senior Education and Training Plans (SET Plans) and subject selection for senior school.

Congratulations to Ashley in year 7 who came 1st in her year division at the District Cross Country held at Butcher’s Creek. Oscar, year 12, came 6th and Emily, year 8, came 5th at the District Cross Country held at Ravenshoe All are to be congratulated for their efforts and we wish them luck at the Peninsula trials in Cairns next Friday 22nd May
