Every day, the CHAC community generates heart-warming stories of achievement, commitment, acknowledgment, endeavour, mateship, and success. Each of these stories are measured not by 'being the best' but by 'trying one's best'; not by 'giving the most', but by sharing what one has; and not by outshining one another but by shining a light on those in need of a helping hand.

The Girls' Education Committee strives to provide inspiration and information to the women and girls of CHAC, and has organised many mentoring Breakfasts to accommodate this. Members of the Committee, and other women of the College community, love to hear from our guest speakers, who provide advice, and relate their experiences in various fields of work.

On the morning of 31 May, CHAC girls had the opportunity to attend a Law and Order themed Mentoring Breakfast. Aside from delighting in the wonderfully decorated and themed tables, and eating delicious picnic breakfasts with friends, attendees had the pleasure of listening to two inspirational guest speakers: Constable Sandi Trembath, a police officer, and Phoebe Shafer, a graduate lawyer.

Both speakers were insightful in their talks about their roles and what they entail, as well as discussing what it is like to be a woman in these roles.

A small group of Year 10 Business and Accounting students had the opportunity to experience university life recently, when they attended Griffith University’s Ambassador Day on Forensic Accounting.

Cross-country premiership


Cannon Hill Anglican College (CHAC) was thrilled to take out the annual TAS Cross-country top-division aggregate trophy, in May 2011, to complement three sporting premierships won already this year.

Two students at Cannon Hill Anglican College (CHAC) were each recent recipients of a 2011 RSL Youth Development Program grant.

Developed in conjunction with Bond University, the program recognises outstanding achievement in the areas of Civic Participation, Community Leadership, Sporting Achievement, and Academic Achievement.
