Maree: It has been wonderful working alongside some truly
inspiring people and, at the same time, hanging out with young
people. Spending most of my time in the Secondary school
has required me to learn a huge range of subjects. For me, life
at St Andrew’s provided me with a level of challenge without
too much stress – I loved coming to work every day. It’s a great
feeling to support young people to believe in themselves and
work towards a goal.

What are you going to miss most about St Andrew’s?
Ron: As above, but also some of the people here who have
become mates, sharing a staffroom with two of them for 10
years, coaching touch footy and beating our arch rivals in Grand
Finals. (Robbo calls me Wayne Bennett, but I think that is more
to do with my age than coaching ability).
Maree: I think, most of all, I will miss the way I feel so valued –
my hard work and efforts have always been acknowledged by
my team.

  Prep teacher Tjitske Linthorne this year has completed the national Highly Accomplished and Lead
        Teachers (HALT) certification to place her among the nation’s most proficient teachers.

HALT certification is overseen nationally by the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership
(AITSL) and undertaken locally by certifying authorities including ISQ. Teachers applying for certification
  undergo a rigorous evaluation process that involves gathering evidence of their teaching practices,
                         classroom observations and peer and student reviews.

           Our strategic pillar of Knowledge and Learning focuses on an ongoing
          commitment to equip our staff with continued professional development
            to enable them to develop a culture of curiosity, independence and
           critical and creative thinking in our students. This year staff embarked
                        on a project focusing on Spheres of Thinking.

                                                  2021 saw our continued focus on the development of our

                                                  thinkers with the lifelong foundations of learning how to learn.

                                                  One of our key focus areas has been Visible Thinking (see
                                                  diagram on pg. 11) and we were privileged to have the

FAREWELL
             Class of 2021
             Final Assembly Speech
             Alice Ayton: When I look back on my six years at St Andrew’s
             they are impossible to describe. I guess standing here today I
             feel a little like the person I was in Year 7. Hesitant about what
             the future would hold but excited to take on every challenge
             and opportunity given to me.

             My journey at St Andrew’s has been filled with an
             overwhelming sense of community, especially the moments I
             have shared with my fellow graduates.

             I know that big dreams are made up of the little moments
             and I can whole heartedly say that each and every one of
             you has made a difference to my dreams through an array
             of little moments. Whether it was being lost in the bush on
             Year 7 orientation camp, suffocating from Lynx Africa on
             the Stradbroke Island minibuses, or watching your great
             coordination in ballroom dancing classes. Moments like these
             have shaped us into the people we are today, and I couldn’t be
             prouder to say I am a part of the class of 2021.

             After being through many ups and downs, through thick and
             thin, we have made it here. It is our turn to walk up that path
             for the final time and write the next chapter of our lives.

             For all the other students of St Andrew’s, here are some final
             words of advice. Take advantage of every opportunity, make
             the time to build relationships with your teachers, and most of
             all cherish the friendships you make at school. Just remember
             you only get to complete school once.

             To my teachers. Thank you for your support and motivation
             to drive me and all of us to do our very best. Your tireless
             dedication to help us not only learn, but become better people
             is what makes the St Andrews experience so special. I couldn’t
             have made it through this year without you and I know all
             of us are very grateful that you have been there to guide us
             throughout this year.

             As they say “what feels like the end is often just the beginning”

so to the class of 2021, congratulations, we did it. I will miss
you all dearly but now I must farewell you all into your bright
futures and I wish you all the best.

Robbie Buxton: I have spent over 70 per cent of my life within
this community and today I walk out as a student for the final
time. There are so many things I will miss here at school. I
will miss the laughter in homeroom on arrival at school each
morning, the rapport that develops between students and
teachers, racing to get a handball court at lunch time, all the
friendships I have formed ranging from early days in Prep right
through to students who have joined the College with such
enthusiasm in the last 1-2 years… the list is endless. Over the
past 12 years, it has been these small moments that have
defined my life here at the College and has provided me with
the overwhelming sense of family. The family that I can never
thank enough. A family that involves staff, parents and our
student peers.

To the parents of the class of 2021. I speak on behalf of our
cohort when I say – you are the reason we have made it this
far. Your endless love and guidance has always given us the           Our training is our life here at St Andrew’s and the qualities

Furthermore, to the teachers of St Andrew’s. Over the past few
years, you have become more than teachers – you have also             And in the future, when we come across those difficult times,

LANGUAGES
Many students living on the Sunshine Coast don’t understand
how acquiring a language can be useful to them. It’s not a
prerequisite for any university courses. When they travel
                                                                   Term 4
overseas, they can always find someone who speaks English,
and if all else fails, there’s Google Translate.

The advantages of acquiring another language are plentiful.
People who know more than one language are more
employable in what is now a truly global employment market.
More companies than ever are engaging in international
business and need people with foreign language skills. In
addition to this, people who know other languages have more
fun when travelling. They are more open-minded, and they
have better interpersonal skills, another feature that is highly
sought after in the job market today. Moreover, many studies
have shown that second language learners enjoy enhanced
cognitive abilities such as better working memories, increased
creativity, improved problem-solving and multitasking skills. In
addition to this, learning a second language advances literacy
skills in one’s first language.

At St Andrew’s, we strive to combine academic rigour with
interactive, culturally inclusive, and engaging activities to
support the acquisition of Mandarin and Spanish. These are
some of the activities in which students were involved.

Chinese Lion Dancing
People perform lion dances at Chinese festivals or big occasions
to bring good fortune. As this tradition is performed to bring
prosperity and good luck for the upcoming year, it was most

our cultural program. Students worked enthusiastically with
Ms Cleyne preparing at lunch times, choreographing, and
strengthening their work to bring a festive and international
spirit to the day.

Spanish Musical Statutes
Year 7 Spanish students enjoyed an interactive game of Spanish
Musical Statues in Ms Solti’s class. The game was based on our
fun and energetic song study completed in Term 4. Students
were required to dance to the music and sing the lyrics in
Spanish – what a joy to hear the chorus of 40 Year 7 students
all singing together in Spanish!

Spanish Running Dictation Race
Year 7 Spanish students also participated eagerly in a running
dictation race in Ms Napoles’ class. The activity required
students to race to find parts of the class story pinned up
outside the classroom. One student had to remember the part
of the story that they had read and race back and dictate it to
their partner who wrote it down. Teams then had to reorganise
the different parts of the class story in the correct order.
Students became highly competitive, and it was great to see
the creative tactics in which many teams engaged to give them
a winning edge.

As we conclude another productive and positive year in the

decisions and development.

    Year 4 students were fortunate to spend a
   whole day designing, creating, coding in an
  immersive Robotics experience day. This was
    a culmination activity whereby all of their
   knowledge and understanding from 2021’s
   learning in Science, Design Technology and
        Digital Technology came together.

    Led by Mrs Stanhope, our Head of Digital
     Integration, students were given a kit to
    design a robot, then code its movements.
   They were given time to practise with their
   robot to ensure their design and algorithm
      would withstand a competition against
                 opposing robots.

  After lots of problem solving and persevering
  the students were ready to battle their robots
           on the sumo wrestling mats.
