STMC Writing Superstars!http://www.stmc.qld.edu.au/news-events/Pages/STMCWritingSuperstars!.aspxSTMC Writing Superstars!<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;color:#444444;font-family:"open sans", arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">​​At the start of the year, our College set an ambitious goal to improve writing across years 7-10. The journey began when ‘We Write More’ was born and our teachers began to incorporate a variety of 10 minute of writing exercises into their lesson 1 classes.<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;color:#444444;font-family:"open sans", arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Throughout the year, samples of student work have been collected and collaboratively marked against eight criteria- purpose, audience, text structure, subject matter, sentence structure, vocabulary and spelling. Each sample is given a total score out of 24 and our students’ progress has been monitored closely.</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;color:#444444;font-family:"open sans", arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Each round of marking has provided important data to plan the best way to reach our writing SMART goal. A major focus has been teaching students to incorporate a variety of sentence types and paragraph structures to make their writing more sophisticated and interesting.</p><p class="ImageNoBorder" style="margin-top:12px;margin-bottom:12px;padding:0px;border:0px;outline:0px;vertical-align:baseline;font-weight:bold;line-height:1.55em;font-style:italic;color:#444444;font-family:"open sans", arial, helvetica, sans-serif;text-align:center !important;"><img src="https://d2qbrbr54edk3k.cloudfront.net/stthomasmc/szschool/newsletter/47152/image/181119035103216/600x372/image003.png" alt="" style="margin:5px;padding:0px;border-width:0px;border-style:initial;outline:0px;vertical-align:baseline;background:none;box-shadow:none;width:556px;" /> </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;color:#444444;font-family:"open sans", arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Our final round of marking has revealed outstanding progress for our students.

High Teahttp://www.stmc.qld.edu.au/news-events/Pages/HighTea.aspxHigh Tea<p style="text-align:justify;">​On Thursday 1st November the Year 12 Hospitality Students hosted patrons for an afternoon high tea event. This event forming part of their assessment, the year 12 students donned their finest aprons and put their best foot forward for the occasion. Attendees were treated to a sumptuous array of hand-made sweet and savoury treats coupled with barista made beverages. With event styling also quintessential to event success, fresh roses in glass votifes were placed down the centre of the tables adding a splash of colour and a most delicate aroma to the room. Compliments a plenty, as the annual event delivered on all sensory levels and left patrons more than satisfied, looking to come back next year. ​<br><br><img src="/news-events/SiteAssets/Pages/HighTea/IMG_3402.JPG" alt="IMG_3402.JPG" style="margin:5px;width:556px;" /><img src="/news-events/SiteAssets/Pages/HighTea/IMG_3378.JPG" alt="IMG_3378.JPG" style="margin:5px;width:556px;" /><img src="/news-events/SiteAssets/Pages/HighTea/IMG_3419.JPG" alt="IMG_3419.JPG" style="margin:5px;width:556px;" /><img src="/news-events/SiteAssets/Pages/HighTea/IMG_3368.JPG" alt="IMG_3368.JPG" style="margin:5px;width:556px;" /><br></p>
