Med class comes to school for tutorials
USQ students share skill
Primary Futsal Cup
TWENTY-EIGHT primary students travelled to Oxley to take on the Term 4 Primary Futsal Cup.
St Joseph’s students faced some tough competition playing against schools that have futsal excellence programs.
The students performed well though, employing great teamwork and sportsmanship.
St Joseph’s entered three boys’ teams – an under-10s, under-11s and under-12s – into the Under-12s Competition, with two teams making the quarter-finals.
It was a great effort by the boys to play against students older than themselves.
The girls’ team battled some tough teams to make it into the big dance but ran out of stamina in the final game.
The girls were awarded with the runners-up medal for the second time this year. Well done girls.
A big thank you to all of the teachers for travelling with the students on the day.
Teddy Bear Hospital
MEDICAL students from the University of Southern Queensland shared their knowledge and skills recently when they visited St Joseph’s School to demonstrate medical procedures to the Prep students.
Students dressed up in hospital attire and learned about the bones in their bodies – with a friendly plastic skeleton and a colouring-in exercise.
They listened to their hearts with the stethoscope and dressed “injuries” on each other and on their teddy bears.
The medical students also demonstrated how a plaster cast is put on and why it is used when a bone is broken.
Thank you to Dr Dan Halliday, Amy Hill and the medical students for giving up their valuable time to teach and entertain our Prep students.
Thank you also to
Naomi Pradella for organising this wonderful activity.
PRACTICAL: Prep kids, with assistance from USQ med students, get a lesson in health and well-being.
St Joseph’s has again excelled on the futsal court.
