Good News Stories

On Sunday 4th June, Habiba Ismail travelled to the Gold Coast to compete in an East Coast invitational tournament, hosted by United Martial Arts, with competitors coming from as far away as North Queensland and Sydney, and various locations in between. Habiba, along with the 13 other members of the Gladstone Silat Langkah Baru team, competed well and made herself and our team incredibly proud. Habiba competed in both sparring and forms events against some really stiff competition, and came away with a first-place trophy for fighting and a second-place trophy for her forms. This tournament was a good warm up for the Australian Titles to be contested in Melbourne in November. Habiba is about to start the arduous training schedule required for members of the State Silat team.

The photo on the left shows Habiba wearing the traditional Silat uniform, with a patterned gold sarong, a black and white iket (ee-ket) and a white belt. The photo on the right shows Habiba being presented with a trophy from Hanshi Tino Cebrano, a 10th dan, who is solely responsible for bringing Karate to Australia.

Gladstone District Senior Mathematics Team Tournament
Recently Toolooa SHS hosted the annual Gladstone District Senior Mathematics Teams Tournament.

This competition sees a year 11 and a year 12 team from all high schools in the district invited to compete against each other in three rounds of mathematical problem solving.

It is with great pleasure that I can announce that our year 12 team walked away as overall winners on the day. This was very satisfying after they had finished as the best Year 11 Team last year.

Our Toolooa year 11 team did exceptionally well also and I am sure that competing this year will have prepared them well for what to expect in next year’s competition.

Well done to all those students who competed – you represented our school very well.

Interactors Helping The Community
A big thank you to the Toolooa Interact Club who went down to Lions Park on Saturday the 10th of June, to help out at the weekly park run. It was the second time this year the Interact Club has supported this fantastic community well-being and healthy living initiative. The Interactors were helping scan the barcodes, time keep, and handing out the barcode to support the community and allow maximum participation. A fun and successful morning was had by all.
