Geography Excursion


On Monday 29 October, Year 10 Geography students – along with Ms Head and staff from the Brisbane Urban Environmental Education Centre – braved the drizzle to participate in a field day at Sandgate. The study was to collect, analyse and evaluate primary and secondary data in understanding the potential impact of climate change and the sea levels rising on the foreshore area, in the next 20 years. The excursion involved learning about surveying, studying house designs and applying the calculations to measure from a sea level point to the expected flood lines. A field study report will be collated using primary and secondary data with a mock recommendation made to the local council as to the best way to mitigate the potential damage to the Sandgate foreshore area.

Legal Studies Excursion


On Friday 19 October, Year 10 Legal Studies students visited the Brisbane Supreme and District Courts with Mr Mason and Mrs Anglin. Upon arriving, we visited the history museum where the Court processes and some legal history facts were explained. After breaking into smaller groups, we were given the opportunity to observe several trials and sentencings; as well as partake in a mock trial of our own, giving us a deeper understanding of what a career in law, criminology or justice may involve. It was exciting to see the media outside of the Court precinct, waiting for the outcomes of high profile cases. The excursion helped us to see the ‘real-life’ aspects of the concepts we had been learning in class. Several of us are keen to return to the Courts in the school holidays to view more cases. Here is a link to video of one of the cases we watched. Khushi P, Year 10 Legal Studies student read more

Grandparents Day


St Peters Springfield welcomed over 120 Grandparents and Grand-friends into our Primary School classrooms. After a heart-warming Chapel Service, our visitors moved to the classrooms for a range of activities. At the end of the morning’s activities, morning tea was served in the Hub, with a mouth-watering array of sandwiches and sweet treats. Our Grandparents and Grand-friends also took advantage of the Book Fair to purchase books for their grandchildren and donations to our library. It is a very special event on our yearly calendar that everyone looks forward to. Debbie West-McInnes, Head of Primary read more
