ACHIEVEMENT


The Last Word Success: a beautifully succinct word that can be measured in a multitude of ways. Is it the number of trophies we collect? Or the amount of money we raise? Is it our results in Naplan, Eisteddfods and representative sporting teams? Or increased school enrolments? Is it how we look and behave? (Trust us, manners do matter.) Success is all of these things. But for your School Foundation success is also about how people feel. For some it is holding hands with their best friend as they cross the finish line at the Lower Primary Athletics Carnival. For others it is dancing to the left when everyone else is dancing to the right and still having the best night of their life, ever. For our children it is the hugs they get from Mum and Dad for doing their best, not being the best. For their parents it is the friends they make for life working side-by-side fundraising and standing side-be-side cheering.

While the Foundation’s charter is to support the school financially we are equally invested in supporting the things that make all members of the school community feel good – about themselves, about each other, about their school. Till next year, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Exhibition of Children’s Art The 2013 Exhibition of Children’s Art was titled “The Shape of Things to Come”. All students’ self portraits were displayed. Many students in the upper grades displayed a sophisticated ability to draw the human form. In addition to these, Prepies made mixed media works of themselves in their favourite outfits; Year 1’s had a variety of snails, bugs and even birds in cages they had sketched from life reworked in oil pastel pen and dye; Year 2’s created pastel portraits reminiscent of the artist, Paul Klee; A wall of indigenous inspired silk paintings made up Year 3’s display; the Year 4’s installation comprised their canvasses of Australian landmarks inspired by Ken Done; the Year 5’s went to the Prado with their embellished images in gold frames and the Year 6’s made masks which reflected their personalities all layered with a cacophony of items.

IN FOCUS Mrs K Camp “Floraville Downs” Burketown. Qld. 4830 A letter of thanks, As a parent who has two sons who have had the privilege of a Prep educational and boarding experience I was concerned at the potential negative impact to this fine school following the decision to move Year Seven to secondary in 2014. Knowing the high benchmarks the school set in regards to the formal learning experience and exposure to a full and varied curriculum as well as the compassionate pastoral care my sons have been exposed to, I was concerned that such a move could sound a death knell for Prep and I was curious as to what the Board and the Anglican Church would instigate to ensure that the fine institution that is Prep would endure. I was heartened to learn that the Toowoomba Anglican College was proposed by the Board as the solution. By having foresight and vision the Board and the Church have set in stone the continuation of a combination of exceptional co-educational Anglican schooling and the stability and high regard already in existence at Prep. As a parent living in remote Queensland for whom boarding is not an option but a reality I am grateful that the Prep experience will not be denied to others due to the potential threat to the school’s viability as a result of governmental policy changes. I am also grateful that I will now have the option of continuing an Anglican education for my children all the way through to University in the place of my choosing and be able to have both sons and daughters together. Once again my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the School, board and Anglican Church executive for your hard work and tenacity in pursuing and securing the future of Prep and extending the excellent educational opportunity into Secondary. Yours faithfully Mrs Kylie Camp

The Last Word Success: a beautifully succinct word that can be measured in a multitude of ways. Is it the number of trophies we collect? Or the amount of money we raise? Is it our results in Naplan, Eisteddfods and representative sporting teams? Or increased school enrolments? Is it how we look and behave? (Trust us, manners do matter.) Success is all of these things. But for your School Foundation success is also about how people feel. For some it is holding hands with their best friend as they cross the finish line at the Lower Primary Athletics Carnival. For others it is dancing to the left when everyone else is dancing to the right and still having the best night of their life, ever. For our children it is the hugs they get from Mum and Dad for doing their best, not being the best. For their parents it is the friends they make for life working side-by-side fundraising and standing side-be-side cheering.
