​What's on at St Sebastian's



Active School Travelhttp://www.stsebastiansyeronga.qld.edu.au/Whats-on/Pages/Active-School-Travel.aspxActive School Travel<p style="text-align:justify;"> ​​<img width="230" height="114" class="ms-rtePosition-2" alt="activeschooltravel.jpg" src="/Whats-on/PublishingImages/activeschooltravel.jpg" style="margin:10px 15px;width:232px;height:115px;" /></p> <p style="text-align:justify;">This year, St Sebastian’s has been selected as one of 17 new schools joining Brisbane City Council’s Active School Travel (AST) program. Over the next three years, our school will receive a range of free resources, tools and incursions to enable active travel to and from school. Active Travel promotes clean and green, active and healthy school travel modes such as walking, cycling, carpooling and public transport. By leaving your car at home, at least one day a week on our active travel day, we can reduce traffic congestion at the school gate, improve road safety, create a cleaner environment, save money and improve our health and fitness. All students  are encouraged to actively travel to school - walk, scooter, ride or carpool. A survey will be taken each Wednesday by teachers and provided to the Council. Each fortnight a certificate will be awarded to the class with the best Active School Travel result. The class winners of our Wednesday surveys are announced at Assembly and every fortnight a Star Class certificate will be awarded to a class that has been outstanding in their active travel to school.  <br></p> <p style="text-align:justify;">Further information regarding the Council’s program can be found at: </p> <div><a href="http://www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/traffic-transport/public-transport/school-transport/active-schooltravel-program">www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/traffic-transport/public-transport/school-transport/active-schooltravel-program</a> <br> </div> <div style="text-align:justify;">Walk - Leave the car at home and walk your kids to school. If you live too far away, drive part </div> <div style="text-align:justify;">of the way and walk the rest. We call that “Park and Stride”.</div> <div style="text-align:justify;">Carpool - Find a friend and carpool to school. It’s an easy way to save money and time. Talk to other parents in your child’s class or street to see who is going your way.</div> <div style="text-align:justify;">Cycle - Ride with your children to school. It’s legal to ride on the footpath and remember to always have your helmet secured.</div>
Graduation 2017http://www.stsebastiansyeronga.qld.edu.au/Whats-on/Pages/Remarkable-Moments-Day.aspxGraduation 2017<div style="text-align:justify;">​Since 2010 a Year 6 (or 7) student has been awarded the Sam Vaughan Spirit Award. This award is in honour of Sam who attended St Sebastian’s until 2008. Sadly Sam passed away in 2009. Sam was an enthusiastic, friendly student who loved being involved in the many activities and events in our school. Sam treasured leading the cheering at the athletics and swimming carnivals and espoused the true spirit of attending a Josephite school. The  Vaughan family will present the ‘Sam Vaughan School Spirit Award’ to acknowledge a graduating student, who displays this loyalty and spirit in their school life. The student receiving the award will be chosen by their peers and the school staff. Thank you to the Vaughan Family for your generosity and support in presenting this valued award. Congratulations to Tahu a deserved recipient of this award.</div> <div style="text-align:justify;"><br>Congratulations to all our amazing graduating Year 6 students, we wish them every success as they move to the next step of their formal education. We also thank them for the generous gift to the school of their year book and the Saint Mary MacKillop print.  <br></div> <div style="text-align:justify;"><br>The Year 6 students have written this note for the Year 5 families…...</div> <div style="text-align:justify;"><br><em>Dear Year 5 Parents and Students</em><br><em>We greatly appreciate your hard work and all the time you spent planning the celebration for our Graduation. It made it really special and will be remembered. Your help and support made us feel loved and cared for. The effort for the service was phenomenal and the night wouldn’t have been the same without your contribution! Everything was set our exquisitely and that made the celebration relaxing and it meant we were able to enjoy it to the fullest. Your kind gestures and warm smiles made the night complete. Thank-you for all the food that you provided on the night. It all tasted great and we know you put a lot of love into every dish. You have wonderful talents when it comes to cooking and we couldn’t of asked for anything more. </em></div> <div style="text-align:justify;"> </div> <div style="text-align:justify;"><em>Kind regards, 2017 Year 6 graduating students</em></div>
