San Sisto Triumphant Again at the Australian National Titration Competitionhttp://www.sansisto.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/San-Sisto-Triumphant-Again-at-the-Australian-National-Titration-Competition.aspxSan Sisto Triumphant Again at the Australian National Titration Competition<p style="text-align:justify;">Recently, twelve Year 11 and 12 Chemistry students once again competed in the Australian National </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Titration Competition organised by the Royal Australian Chemical Institute, at the University of Queensland St Lucia campus.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">San Sisto has a rich tradition of excellence in titration, this year is no exception.  Although the final results are not published until later in the semester, we do know that San Sisto won a third place in the Regional competition.  This is no mean feat considering that there were as many as forty teams competing at the University on the day.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The competition involves a very accurate analysis of the concentrations of solutions of acid and base.  There is a high level of skill involved both at the practical and theoretical levels.  Students have had to be dedicated and put in many hours of training in the laboratory to obtain these skill levels. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Loren Toten, Lucy Quach and Brianna Barron were the team placing third.  Other teams competing included Sabrina Gregory, Brooke Jay, Charlie Enright, Yasmin Barraclough, Tayla Heath, Kiana Heath, Sophie Walden, Maria Leal and Talullah Vinney.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">We would like to congratulate all team members as there were some very accurate individual results as well.</p>
Lord Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council 2018http://www.sansisto.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/Lord-Mayor’s-Youth-Advisory-Council-2018.aspxLord Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council 2018<span lang="EN"><p align="JUSTIFY" dir="LTR">We are pleased to announce that Year 10 student Annika Poole will be our 2018 San Sisto representative on the Lord Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council (LMYAC). Each year, Brisbane high schools are invited to nominate one Year 10 student to the represent on the council. LMYAC delegates act as representatives of their school and community, and are a voice for raising issues or sharing ideas that affect young people. </p> <p align="JUSTIFY" dir="LTR">LMYAC aims to develop young people as leaders, and is specifically designed to provide an opportunity for young people in Brisbane to participate in decision making at the local and citywide level. Students identify issues and engage with each other in a public forum, where they are encouraged to provide feedback and give their opinion about Brisbane City Council policies, local laws, services and programs that affect young people. </p> <p>Congratulations to Annika and well done to the other Year 10s who put forward a nomination for this position. It is wonderful to see that we have so many Year 10 students who want to be of service to our college and the wider community. </p><p> </p></span>
Dancehttp://www.sansisto.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/Dance.aspxDance<p style="text-align:justify;"><span lang="EN">This year our new elective, Dance, has started off with a bang! Both classes have been travelling out to Arete Arts Academy to undertake their practical lessons, plus one theory lesson on campus with dance teacher, Jodi Hursford. Our girls have been working hard on their assessment exploring Contemporary Dance to Florence and the Machine’s, Heavy in your arms. Each lesson Ms Hursford has been teaching the choreography step by step, from basic contractions and fluid floor work, to a touch of classical movement. All girls are showing so much potential - well done girls! </span></p>
Equestrian Kick Offhttp://www.sansisto.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/San-Sisto-College-Equestrian-Kick-Off.aspxEquestrian Kick Off<p>San Sisto College is excited to have a team competing in the Equestrian Queensland Inter-School (IQ) competition for the first time. The competition provides a wonderful opportunity for our students to share their passion for horse riding with other like-minded school students. Our team will compete in Show Jumping, Eventing and Dressage events throughout the year.</p><p>The qualifying rounds began in February.  Thus far, the team has participated in Show Jumping competitions, completing clean rounds and placing in the top six riders in their jump height category. </p><p>Senior student, Bailey Kelly, started riding when she was very young. Like most equestrian enthusiasts, she is passionate about riding and spends hours preparing for competitions. She believes horse riding has many benefits:</p><p>“Horse riding is a sport that really works you hard, both mentally and physically, but is also extremely rewarding and enjoyable. Your resilience and persistence are often tested, but you learn to keep going, get back in the saddle and continue moving forward."</p><p>While this is the first year of the competition, San Sisto students are training towards high goals. Year 10 students Lucy Vaschina and Lili Green are sharing their passion for competing in Show Jumping events with their horses, Mystic and Dane. Both girls began riding when they were very young and are enjoying the opportunity to compete in the Inter-School competition.</p><p>Lucy said, “Riding has taught me to be patient and persistent while dealing with frustrating situations, as well as loving what I'm doing when it's going well."</p><p>She also acknowledged the commitment, time and expense involved in Equestrian as a sport. “I am forever grateful to my family for their constant support, and the San Sisto staff and community for welcoming this idea and team."</p><p>“We have a very young equestrian team that has managed to excel in this our first year of competition," Principal, Mrs Shelley Hamilton said. “The team has developed a strong sense of camaraderie, trust, respect and school spirit that is a credit to them."</p><p><img src="/latest-news/SiteAssets/Equestrian.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;" /> </p><p> </p>
