2017 ST Thomas More College Sports Awards Dinnerhttp://www.stmc.qld.edu.au/news-events/Pages/2017-ST-Thomas-More-College-Sports-Awards-Dinner.aspx2017 ST Thomas More College Sports Awards Dinner<span style="text-align:justify;">​On Friday 27th October, over 420 of the STMC Community gathered to celebrate all things sport for 2017. It was a fantastic night and a perfect way to cap off what has been the most successful year ever for STMC Sport. The Presentation Centre was transformed from a sports hall into a gala venue and from all accounts people really enjoyed the atmosphere that was created. Congratulations to all the award winners, including our major award winners: </span><p><span>BCE Spirit Award</span> – Staff member Mrs Lauren Wann<br><span>BCE Spirit</span> <span>Award</span> – Braiden Boone<br><span>Junior Sportswoman of the Year</span> - Bailey Day<br><span>Junior Sportsman of the Year</span> - Ziaden Thomson<br><span>Senior Sportswoman of the Year</span> – Chloe Humphrey’s<br><span>Senior Sportsman of the Year</span> – Lachlan Tate</p> <p>On the night, we also launched the STMC sports marketing material. We have the new College sporting banners, Junnebei flags and banners, and the STMC College sporting jersey wall at the back of the Presentation Centre, which houses the framed jerseys of all our sporting teams. As the TEAM MORE motto says, “Together Everyone Achieves More”, and this is certainly the case with organising these events. It has been an outstanding effort by the College staff and students to prepare and host this event. Its success is testament to the commitment of these people. A high bar has been set for future events, but I am sure that all involved can rise to the challenge in 2018. As our students keep improving and winning awards, the night will only get bigger and better.<span> </span></p> <p class="Normal" style="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:12px;padding:0px;border:0px;outline:0px;vertical-align:baseline;line-height:1.55em;text-align:justify;"><img src="/news-events/PublishingImages/2017%20Sports%20Awards%20(122).JPG" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:250px;height:166px;" /> <img src="/news-events/PublishingImages/2017%20Sports%20Awards%20(176).JPG" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:250px;height:166px;" /> </p> <p class="Normal" style="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:12px;padding:0px;border:0px;outline:0px;vertical-align:baseline;line-height:1.55em;text-align:justify;"><img src="/news-events/PublishingImages/2017%20Sports%20Awards%20(40).JPG" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:450px;height:299px;" /><br><br><br><br><br><br><br></p> <p class="Normal" style="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:12px;padding:0px;border:0px;outline:0px;vertical-align:baseline;line-height:1.55em;text-align:justify;"><br></p> ​​

Becoming MOREhttp://www.stmc.qld.edu.au/news-events/Pages/Becoming-MORE.aspxBecoming MORE​​Becoming MORE showcase evening.<p></p> <p>A number of senior students who pursue tertiary education at the end of Year 11 and Year 12 come from backgrounds where they are the first in their family’s history to study at a university and gain a degree to pursue a chosen professional career. Similarly, many of these students have not had members of their extended family or friends who have gained tertiary qualifications.</p> <p>As a result, St Thomas More College, Sunnybank, have developed the Becoming M.O.R.E. Program. The program is designed to help high achieving Year-11 students who are university bound to enrich their experience of senior secondary education and maximise their knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the profession they are interested in pursuing after Year 12.</p> <p>Students who participate in the program complete an application form, nominate why they should be selected and outline a multi-modal project they will generate and present. This will either showcase the career or profession the student is interested in pursuing upon completion of Year 12 and/or highlight the knowledge and understanding they have acquired from their mentor and apply this to a piece of work for a subject they are studying.</p> <p>Each student is teamed up with a mentor from the field of endeavour they are hoping to pursue. Over the course of the program, (which only takes place over a three-month period), the mentor is a role model, encourager, guide or critic for the student candidate. The aim is to have a professional conversation whereby the mentor discusses their journey and provides the student with a greater insight into the profession. Indeed, the mentor’s involvement in the program helps to enhance the students’ motivation to achieve success with their current studies and boost their confidence to pursue tertiary studies in the future. ​<br></p> <p><br></p> <p><img src="/news-events/PublishingImages/2.png" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:250px;height:199px;" /><img src="/news-events/PublishingImages/6.png" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:250px;height:202px;" /> </p> <p></p> <div style="text-align:center;"><img src="/news-events/PublishingImages/7.png" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:250px;height:276px;" /> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div> </div> <div>.</div> <p></p> ​​​​​​​​​
