Year 8 Spirituality Dayhttp://www.stbenedictscollege.qld.edu.au/news-and-events/Pages/Year-8-Spirituality-Day.aspxYear 8 Spirituality Day<p style="background:white;margin:0px;vertical-align:baseline;"><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:#444444;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;">Recently, Michael Fitzpatrick challenged our Year 8 students to think about what symbols in their lives are important to them and how we can further enhance our sense of community within the cohort. Stepping out of their comfort zone was fundamental aspect of the event with students buddying up with those who were not in their established circle of friends. This was a timely embellishment of the College’s ‘Big 5’ where respect and relationships underpin all that we do. I would like to thank the students for their exemplary behaviour, and it was heart-warming to hear the College Song being sung as one voice on the bus trip home. </span></span></p><p style="background:white;margin:0px;vertical-align:baseline;"><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:#444444;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"><br></span></span> </p><p style="background:white;margin:0px;vertical-align:baseline;"><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:#444444;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;">Ben Sitarz<br>Year 8 Pastoral Leader<br></span></span></p> <font color="#000000"></font><font face="Times New Roman"></font>​<p>​</p>
College Leader Attends National Youth Science Forumhttp://www.stbenedictscollege.qld.edu.au/news-and-events/Pages/College-Leader-Attends-National-Youth-Science-Forum.aspxCollege Leader Attends National Youth Science Forum<p style="margin:0px;vertical-align:baseline;"><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;">​Over the recent holidays, I was fortunate enough to attend the National Youth Science Forum’s Year 12 Program. </span></span><span style="margin:0px;"><span lang="EN-US" style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;">NYSF is a non-profit </span></span><span style="margin:0px;"><span lang="EN-US" style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;">organisation</span></span><span style="margin:0px;"><span lang="EN-US" style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"> that runs several science outreach activities. Its flagship NYSF Year 12 Program runs in January each year. The program is a 12-day residential activity for students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) where participants stay on campus at a host university and gain significant insights into the variety of study and career opportunities available across STEM fields as well as experience university campuses, facilities and lifestyle. This is done through a Laboratory and site visits, lectures, workshops and networking and social events. </span></span><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"> </span></span><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-size:9pt;"></span></p><p style="margin:0px;vertical-align:baseline;"><span style="margin:0px;"><span lang="EN-US" style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"> </span></span></p><p style="margin:0px;vertical-align:baseline;"><span style="margin:0px;"><span lang="EN-US" style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;">I attended Session C, which was based in Canberra and hosted by the Australian National University. Participants are separated into 14 interest groups, each focusing on a different branch of science, in order to tailor STEM visits to the student’s interests. I was part of the Doherty interest group, named after Peter Doherty, which focused on health and medical sciences. Due to this, I visited a variety of laboratory and research facilities including; John Curtain School of Medical Research (situated on the ANU campus), University of Canberra Faculty of Health Sciences, ACU Exercise Science and visits to a pathology lab and the Therapeutic Goods Administration as well as a videoconference with the deputy head of the physics department at CERN. </span></span><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;">Throughout these visits I participated in activities in areas including cancer research, neuroscience, immunology, virtual reality, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, midwifery and drug and medical equipment testing. Each visit opened my eyes to new applications and pathways in STEM. My favourite however was visiting the Therapeutic Goods Administration as we performed a titration aimed to test that the amount of aspirin contained in the tablet was the same as what was stated by the manufacturer. This activity reminded me of my passion for chemistry and taught me a real-world application.  </span></span><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"> </span></span><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-size:9pt;"></span></p><p style="margin:0px;vertical-align:baseline;"><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"> </span></span></p><p style="margin:0px;vertical-align:baseline;"><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;">There are also </span></span><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;">a number of</span></span><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"> social and networking events including the Rotary and Alumni Evening, Partners Day and the Science Dinner. These are fantastic opportunities to talk to alumni and industry experts, learn about their careers, and STEM pathways. Partner’s Day is also a great way to learn more about science roles in companies and what different universities around Australia offer. The keynote speaker at the science dinner was Australia’s chief scientist Dr Alan Finkle. Dr Finkle’s presentation was very interesting and inspiring as he told of his experiences and shared his life principles; to master the foundations, take on tough challenges, believe that there is always a better way, make a relentless commitment to quality and to always walk through the door of opportunity. He also instructed us to never be afraid to pivot, whether that means moving to a different field of STEM or changing careers completely. </span></span><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"> </span></span><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-size:9pt;"></span></p><p style="margin:0px;vertical-align:baseline;"><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"> </span></span></p><p style="margin:0px;vertical-align:baseline;"><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;">Overall, attending the NYSF confirmed my passion for the medical field but has provided me with many pathways and careers to further look into and consider. Meeting such encouraging and inspirational likeminded people and sharing in the mutual enthusiasm and passion for science has left me motivated and excited to pursue further studies and in the future a career in STEM, whatever form that may take.</span></span><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"> </span></span><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-size:9pt;"></span></p><p style="margin:0px;vertical-align:baseline;"><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"> </span></span></p><p style="margin:0px;vertical-align:baseline;"><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;">Erin Brown</span></span><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"> </span></span><span style="margin:0px;color:black;font-size:9pt;"></span></p> <span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;line-height:107%;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;">Year 12 Student and College Leader</span></span><span style="margin:0px;"><span style="margin:0px;color:black;line-height:107%;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"> </span></span>​<br><br>
