Cultural Capers Week 27
Firstly we wanted to thank everyone who has supported our teams. There are a few times in your life when you witness true humility and grace in defeat and last night at the Theatresports Semi Final, Adam and I saw something truly special in the 6 young men of our Senior Team.
To say we were incredibly proud of Jack McLeod, Sourena Borzoo, Curtis Granville, Ethan Noble, Jared Noble and Oscar O’Brien would be an understatement. It is not just a fun game. Theatresports uses most of the 21st Century Skills: communication; critical thinking; creative thinking; collaboration and teamwork; personal and social skills - and the boys displayed them at an exceptional level.
And they were entertaining!
Impressively though as soon as they heard that they missed out on a place in the Grand Final they all moved to shake the hands of all the other teams and wish them well. Then they took themselves off to a room away from others and moved into a huddle and talked about next year’s event and trying again. Great sportsmanship from a group who possess the amazing lost art of PLAY and big hearts.
It has been a privilege to walk beside them.

The SPC debating program acknowledged its achievements in 2018 at the Cultural Awards Assembly last Tuesday.
Coach’s Award Winners were announced for each year level while Nicholas Easey was acknowledged as Debating Captain and Maxwell Freedman received the prestigious QDU Award for Debater of the Year.
Further to last week’s debating article, I neglected to mention Year 10.1 third speaker Jackson Kloehs who participated in that side’s QDU quarter final loss to Anglican Church Grammar School.
The debating season wraps up at St Patrick’s with Year 7 short preparation debates next Thursday (September 6). The 7.1 team begins preparation time at 5:30pm.
