2019 Bullying, NO WAY!http://www.olgcgatton.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/2019-Bullying,-NO-WAY!.aspx2019 Bullying, NO WAY!<p style="text-align:justify;"><img alt="nda-small-banner.jpg" src="/latest-news/PublishingImages/nda-small-banner.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:659px;" />National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence is today and we join with all schools to acknowledge and reinforce to students, the very important message of Bullying, NO WAY! </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Our Lady of Good Counsel School has a zero tolerance to bullying and this is reflected in our school Behaviour Policy. Our every day school rules reinforce our expectations, and this is shown through the rule: Give Respect. As a Catholic school we also recognise the teachings of Jesus and what he asks us to do, “Love one another as I have loved you.”</p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>As a faith community may we be inspired to be positive role models for students, as we too</strong></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>stand up and say Bullying, NO WAY!</strong><img alt="Bullying.jpg" src="/latest-news/PublishingImages/Bullying.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:643px;" />​</p>
2019 STEM Symposiumhttp://www.olgcgatton.qld.edu.au/latest-news/Pages/2019-STEM-Symposium.aspx2019 STEM Symposium<p><img alt="STEM-LOGO.jpg" src="/latest-news/PublishingImages/STEM-LOGO.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:638px;" />​</p><p> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">This week, I along with Miss Melville and Mrs Warskitt had the privilege of attending the first STEM Symposium hosted by Brisbane Catholic Education. This two-day event was an outstanding learning opportunity to listen and engage with a number of highly distinguished presenters who have influenced and are leaders within the area of STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Throughout the course of the two days we were inspired by their stories and their ability to apply design thinking to their field of work and make a real difference</p><p style="text-align:justify;">to the lives of others.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">This year our goal is to draw on the strengths of our community as we work towards contextualising the Australian Curriculum to our local context. We are certainly excited about this opportunity as we look to establish community partnerships to strengthen learning in the area of STEM. Without a doubt, there are many great examples within our local community where design thinking has been applied. We look forward to establishing these partnerships to</p><p style="text-align:justify;">deepen student learning and show how their rich learning is connected to the real world.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">At the end of the expo, one lucky participants name was drawn to win an EV3 Lego Robotics Kit valued over $500. I am delighted to share that OLGC was the lucky winner! This kit along with other resources will strengthen the teaching of STEM within our school. We look forward to sharing this knowledge learnt with all staff.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><img alt="STEM Lego.jpg" src="/latest-news/PublishingImages/STEM%20Lego.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:643px;" /> </p><p> </p>
