INTERSTATE EDUCATION ADVERTISING FEATURE V1 - NTNE01Z01DS SUN NEWSPAPERS, Tuesday, May 24, 2016 21 WHEN St Margarets Anglican Girls School Year 11 boarder Nicole Sallis talks about her beautiful country and the wide open plains of the Northern Territory, there is a sparkle in her eyes. Here is a girl with a heartfelt passion for the country. I have just spent the weekend at home with my dad, helping him with work and doing some fishing, she says, now back at her second home, and swapping those wide open plains for magnificent Brisbane city views from St Margarets hilltop location in suburban Ascot. She laughs as she recounts some of the stories she has shared with her St Margarets friends, saying she enjoys their curiosity about her Territory adventures, which they find really interesting. Nicole is one of three NT girls currently attending St Margarets. Lillyana Bowden, Year 9, explains how it is the variety of sports on offer she enjoys most. I play tennis, rhythmic gymnastics, netball, athletics and touch football, and the competition is challenging, so a win feels really rewarding, she says. When reflecting on the overall experience, Year 12 student Emma Trier says studying in Brisbane has helped her discover there is bigger world out there. Even though everything is so close, adds Lillyana. Emma agrees, remembering her Year 10 camp trip: It was such a novelty to travel from the urban metropolis into a deep rainforest within a short road trip. It is this diversity that makes the experience so exciting, and it is the same in the boarding house. We all enjoy sharing our stories and teaching each other about where we come from. Emma is in her last year of study at St Margarets and values the connections she has made and the pathways open to her as she considers her future. There are so many opportunities and I have made so many valuable connections. I know when I am ready I will be looking into the great universities here in Brisbane, Emma said. NT girls feel right at home Nicole Sallis, Emma Trier and Lillyana Bowden from the Northern Territory are happy to call St Margarets their second home, enjoying the urban opportunities life in Brisbane brings, but still relishing every chance to share their Territory adventures with their friends.
