To our new Year 10 students: Welcome to QAHS. At the end of Week 1 and start of Week 2 the Year 10 students took part in our Jumpstart program. This program is for the students to begin getting to know one another and begin experiencing what it is like to be an Academy student.
On the first day of Jumpstart we began with house spirit. The students separated into their house groups and created outstanding artwork to represent their house. We asked them to be risk takers by working with Year 11 students and putting together a performance that was to be shown to the whole school. As their Year Coordinator I was so proud of each student on this day. It is a daunting experience to get up in front of a group of people and perform but they did it with a smile and were supported by everyone watching. The performances were amazing!
Day two of Jumpstart began with two informative sessions by Elevate on study skills and time management, the students were able to come away from these sessions with strategies to help them throughout their journey at QAHS. The afternoon of day two is all about getting to know your Global Learners class. The students took part in fun activities that encouraged them to get to know the school and focussed on wellbeing.
It was a great Jumpstart Program this year, a great way to welcome what will become the QAHS graduating class of 2022! We are all excited to see where your journey at the Academy takes you.
