A hearty congratulations to the Senior School ensembles who participated in the 2020 Virtual Performing Arts Festival! Video footage was captured at the Welcome Back Concert in August and sent in to the judges for adjudication. For many boys, their performance at the Welcome Back Concert was their first performance of 2020. In fact, there were quite a few firsts on this evening: the first time many Year 7s have performed (in some cases it was their first ever performance), the first performance of the newly formed TGS Orchestra, conducted by Ms Teresa Brix, the first performance of the newly formed Little Big Band, the first time the Wind Ensemble was conducted by Mr Morgan Chalmers, the first time the RnB Too Band performed under the direction of Mr Peter Woods, and the first time the RnB Band performed under the direction of Ms Bonnie Green. The boys performed so professionally that none of these firsts would have been obvious to the audience or to the Virtual Festival judges! The resilience, passion, positivity and commitment of the staff and students in the Music Department shone brightly throughout 2020, and it is exciting that the performances at the Welcome Back Concert were rewarded with such outstanding results in the Toowoomba Virtual Secondary Performing Arts Festival. Congratulations!
The results are as follows:
Big Band – GOLD
RnB Band – GOLD
Wind Orchestra – GOLD
Grammarphones – GOLD
Vivace Trio – GOLD
Combined Voices Choir – SILVER
Wind Ensemble – BRONZE

Welcome back to life after lockdown. Let’s hope we don’t have to go back into lockdown again this year-or ever. There are some bush orienteering events running this term but not much close to Toowoomba (see below for events). I will continue to let you know what is on and hopefully you will be able to get to some events. At the end of term, I will offer orienteering as an option during the House Carnival Day – probably using smart phones instead of Sportident if it is okay with Mr Anderson. Next term, we will have a street-o series around Toowoomba.
I will modify the requirements to have orienteering listed as a co-curricular activity this year so please keep coming to as many events as you can.
Below is also some information about regional and state trials/selection this year.

Dear Rugby Players,
Please see attached the basic outline and schedule for our Internal Rugby Trials for all age groups this coming Saturday. Please note what you are required to wear, venues and also what time you need to arrive.
Please also note the following important points:
For players who DID attend the Rugby Camp:
1. Players who attended the Rugby Camp are eligible to trial this weekend and compete in the contact trial games as per the schedule
For players who DID NOT attend the Rugby Camp:
2. Players who did not attend the Rugby Camp are not eligible to trial in the contact games this weekend
3. Players who did not attend the Rugby Camp will need to attend the trials for the first hour and complete the World Rugby Activate session and the Confidence in Contact session which is being run prior to the trials commencing. Following this these players will then be able to return home as they cannot take part in the full contact rugby trial games scheduled for the rest of the day
4. Players who did not attend the Rugby Camp will need to attend trainings in the first 2 weeks of term (during which all teams will complete further sessions on Confidence in Contact and revise other mandatory safety components). Following these 2 weeks of preparation, these players will then be considered eligible to commence full contact training at the start of week 3 (from Monday, 27 July) and compete in games from Round 3 onwards (Round 3 – Friday, 31 July and Saturday, 1 August)
You will receive more details regarding this in a communication from the Sports Office. We look forward to seeing you at the trials on Saturday.
