Toolooa caters to all learning

TOOLOOA High is going to great lengths to improve its profile within the community.

A meet-and-greet was held at the high school on Friday with many of Gladstone’s media stakeholders and teachers in attendance.

Principal Alan Whitfield said he believed Toolooa was perceived as a school focussed on trade aspects.

“While Toolooa does offer some great engineering and trade programs we also have a great number of academically gifted students,” he said.

“Toolooa caters for all aspects of vocational and academic learning.”

To promote the school Toolooa has designed some great activities which will be launched in October.

The first is the TSHS Super Challenge.

This will be a fun day for primary school students in grades 5 to 7 to compete for the Toolooa inaugural Super Challenge Trophy.

The day will include various learning challenges, including STEM robotics, CAD build battle and a T-SEP – a sports excellence program.

Toolooa’s calendar is looking pretty full for the rest of the year with the Super Challenge, Awards Night, Orientation Day and Prom all to come.
