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></span><p>​</p>
International Women’s Day Fun Run 2018http://www.sansisto.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/International-Women’s-Day-Fun-Run-2018.aspxInternational Women’s Day Fun Run 2018<span lang="EN"><p align="JUSTIFY" dir="LTR">The International Women’s Day Fun Run was held on Sunday 4 March. The morning was a great success with over 75 students, staff, family and friends participating in the 5km and 10km run or walk event. As a College we raised $1767 towards breast cancer research. A big thank you to those who donated. There was a lot of fun had by all whether they were running or having an enjoyable walk with friends. Congratulations to all who participated, this is a great event that we look forward to every year!</p></span><p>​</p>
Sister Squadhttp://www.sansisto.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/Sister-Squad.aspxSister Squad<p style="text-align:justify;">The San Sisto Sister squad, an opportunity for Year 9 girls, is now in its second year and going strong. The girls selected in the Sister squad lead the college in the school spirit dance, work with Year 7 and Year 8 students in fostering school spirit, perform on assembly, San Sisto Day and support our Interschool Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics teams. They also take a lead role in singing the college song at the end of every assembly. As a college, we talk often to students about fostering school spirit and how it is not just about cheering at carnivals, but about how students talk about their college, how they behave both in and outside school, how they wear their uniform, it's about how tidy they keep their school grounds. The Sister Squad girls are living joyfully, building community and seeking connectedness with others. A perfect combination for life.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">In 2018 there are 28 girls in the squad who have made a commitment to the college, rehearsed together as a team, interacted with younger students,  shared ideas together and I could not be prouder of these young women.</p><p>Recently the girls did a tremendous job at the Interschool Swimming carnival, along with our newest San Sisters, and the Year 12 House Leaders. The atmosphere was electric and all these girls cheered in hot, humid conditions for hours. San Sisto's performance at the dance/cheer off was brilliant. Feedback from other schools about our students support of the San Sisto swim team and other teams was heart-warming. Well done girls.

Improvement Walls in the Science Classroomshttp://www.sansisto.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/Improvement-Walls-in-the-Science-Classrooms.aspxImprovement Walls in the Science Classrooms<p>​Continuing their Excellence in Teaching and Learning journey, the Science Department has created Improvement Walls at the rear of teaching laboratories where examples of current assignments and practical reports can be found for student reference.</p><p>Each example assessment piece has specific aspects highlighted that show students how they are above or below standard and how they can be improved. These example tasks serve to give students an idea on how the assignment they are working on might look or be formatted and what level of scientific detail is required. They also serve to display the level of literacy and numeracy required. Current research in education tells us that Improvement Walls serve to make visible to students the standard of work expected and we are confident this initiative will improve student outcomes. </p><p>Students have already found these learning spaces very useful. As one student commented; </p><p>“The wall shows us what the task looks like so we find starting easier; we can create a mental image of the format of the task. It also shows us what level of scientific detail and literacy and numeracy is needed," said Stuart Gillett, Academic Leader: Science.​<br></p><p><br> </p>
San Sisto College Teacher Represents Australia http://www.sansisto.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/San-Sisto-College-Teacher-Represents-Australia-.aspxSan Sisto College Teacher Represents Australia <p>​San Sisto College Health and Physical Education (HPE) Teacher, Amy Penberthy recently represented Australia in the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final in Rotterdam.<br></p><p>Amy has spent the last six years competing locally in the sport, since graduating from high school. “I have always been a lover of running and any type of endurance activity starting back in my days at primary school.  When leaving school I wanted to try something that involved running, but triathlons were a little more challenging; which pushed me out of my comfort zone. My sports coordinator at high school was the driving force behind my starting up in the sport. I got to train with her throughout university and I just loved the atmosphere of the training squad – the lifestyle and the enjoyment of both competing and training still provides a thrill for me," said Amy.</p><p>“Competing in the ITU World TriathlonGrand Final in Rotterdam was an amazing experience. Just being able to race overseas while representing Australia in my age group was an honour. To be racing in new places while taking in the scenery whilst on course was awesome. Interacting with like-minded people from both Australia and other countries was also a highlight. The atmosphere at the event was great and although you are competing against each other, there is a real sense of team spirit and fun across the entire event. Everyone is there for the same reason, and it was great to meet and get to know athletes from all over the world."</p><p>Leading up to the event, Amy was required to compete in five different qualifying races including the Noosa and Mooloolaba triathlons here in Queensland. It was necessary to gain an allocated number of points to make the team. Amy was training for 20 – 25 hours a week to build fitness. “I have always been much more of a lover of training rather than competing, so I love training as much as I can and try to fit it in where possible across my week with teaching and coaching the girls at San Sisto College. Training is a part of my day that I really look forward to – it is not only a time where I can work hard, but also a time where I can socialize and catch-up with friends.</p><p>My advice to anyone interested in the sport is to have perseverance and stay committed to get the best out of yourself and your training even when life is busy. Stepping out of your comfort zone is a good thing so enjoy the moment you are in – focus on what you can control and the rest will come."​<br></p><p>​<br></p>
