The livelihoods of more than 33,000 Queenslanders and almost $5 billion worth of economic activity rely on a strong and growing independent schooling sector.
These are among the headline findings of a comprehensive examination of the contribution of Queensland’s more than 200 independent schools to the economy.
In 2020, Independent Schools Queensland commissioned economic analysts, AEC Group, to quantify the sector’s contribution to the Queensland economy and to the local economies in which they operate. The report, which is based on the latest available 2017-18 sector data, updates modelling undertaken for the first time in 2016 using 2013-14 data.

Book Week is celebrated annually at St Paul’s and we started the week off with the opening of our Book Fair. A very big thank you to everyone who came and supported this event. It was a huge success enabling us to purchase new resources to benefit the students. Congratulations to Addy who won the $50 book raffle which was generously donated by the Book Warehouse.
Next we had our Book Blanket with the Year 6 students reading to students from Kindy to Year 5. This was a wonderful event as it really showcased the idea behind Book Week – where children and books are brought together. Well done to all our readers!
It was great to see the students and staff getting into the spirit by dressing up as as a book character for our Dress-up Parade.
As part of the celebrations for Book Week, the students were invited to create a poster based on the Book Week theme ‘Reading is my secret power’. All students who entered did a fantastic job, congratulations our winners.
Year Two has been busily preparing their Geography Models for the Learning Expo.
They have thoroughly enjoyed finding out about how they are connected to different parts of the world and have enthusiastically researched and built models of special places they have discovered in the countries with which they have connections. Parents have happily donated time to assist with the building process for which we have greatly appreciated.
This week in Junior Japanese the Year 1 students have been learning weather vocabulary. Our focus for the week was on the word ‘hare’ which means sunny. We also learnt how to ask the question, “Tenki wa dou desu ka”, which means, “How is the weather?” Students enjoyed making a ‘hare’ craft to help remind them of their new vocabulary.
In Senior Japanese this term we have been focusing on learning ‘jiko shoukai’ which means how to introduce ourselves in Japanese. We practise having a conversation in Japanese with a partner every week. Here is an example of what we are practising to say currently:
*Hajimemashite (Hi. How do you do?) + Rei (Bow)
*Konnichiwa (Hello / Good afternoon)
*Watashi wa (name) desu – girls OR Boku wa (name) desu – boys
*(Grade) nensei desu (I am in grade _______ )
*(Item) ga suki desu (I like _______ )
*(Suburb) ni sunde imasu (I live in _______ )
*Douzo yoroshiku onegaishimasu (Nice to meet you)
*Arigatou gozaimashita (Thank you very much) + Rei (bow)
We have also made tanuki (Japanese raccoon dogs) in Year 4 and koinobori (carp kite streamers) for the Children’s Day Festival in Years 5 and 6.
They look fabulous in the Japanese classroom!
Thank you to everyone who has entered the Japanese Festival’s Art competition too. Final entries are due this Thursday, 1st August 2019. Ganbarou – Good luck!

Sport at St Paul’s in Term 2 has focused heavily on Athletics: Track and Field Events.
For senior students, weekly PE lessons and Friday afternoon sessions were timetabled to give students the opportunity to experience and practices different Track and Field Events: 800m, 200m, 100m, Shot Put, High Jump, Long Jump & Team games. All working towards beating and being their personal best, as well as trying to qualify for the District and/or Inter Lutheran Athletics Team.
Junior students also experienced the fun of particular Athletic and Team Game Events: Long Jump, High Jump, Target/Rainbow Throw, Tug of War, Ball Games, Egg and Spoon races, & Sprint races. The Juniors were very excited and enthused to practice these events, as they knew they had to perform them at the recent Junior School Sports Day Carnival.
Next term, Junior School classes get to explore the art and skill of Gymnastics – fundamental movements. Information of a performance showcase at the end of term will be highly likely. Senior students will be involved in a few units: Tradition Indigenous Games, Ultimate Frisbee & Touch Football. They can also look forward to representing St Paul’s at the annual Inter Lutheran Athletics Carnival, and being involved, once again, in the Sports Gala Days: Girls Netball or Touch Football & Boys Cricket, as well as nominating at Year 4-6 team for the Netball Primary School Cup mid-September.
On Thursday 13th June, as a part of our inquiry unit “Feathers, Fur and Leaves”, Year 3 biologists loaded on to the bus to travel to the Butterfly House on Bribie Island to experience personally the world of living things. The butterflies loved our yellow shirts!
Last Wednesday, Year 4 students along with their teachers, support staff and parent helpers headed off for 3 days of fun and activities at Maranatha Recreation Camp Yandina. They conquered the jungle ropes course, competed at rocket ball, tried their aiming skills in archery, worked together at possum pull, walked to Wappa Falls, tackled the Tower of Tremble, learned the art of campfire cooking, participated in sketching, experienced Indigenous Australian Culture and were thrilled by an indoor experience with Australian Native Owls. All arrived home safely on Friday, tired yet excited for the opportunities that their parents had allowed them to experience by attending camp. Thank you to everyone who worked to help make this camp a success.
