From our Principal

Dear Parents, Students and Friends,

 

The weather has finally turned and there is a definite spring in the step of both staff and students. It might also have something to do with the wonderful events over the last week and into this week. In this edition you will be able to read of just a sample of what has occurred.

Official Blessing and Opening of the Francis Building, Administration Building and Cross Installation

These significant buildings and structures were officially blessed by Bishop Patrick O’Regan and opened by Ms Pauline Richards MP, Member for Cranbourne, Ms Maria Kirkwood – Chief Executive Officer of the Diocese of Sale Catholic Education Ltd and Bishop Patrick. The Administration Building has serviced the needs of our community for some time now and has become a service centre for the needs of the community. Likewise the Francis Building, previously known as the Yr 9 Learning Centre, has been in operation delivering a new curriculum program based on active, project based learning. The Cross Installation has stood proud throughout this year. It is the third significant structure which speaks at the heart of who we are as a Catholic school. The gates of Peter are a sign of welcome, the statue of Peter beckons all forward inviting a closer relationship with Christ. This Cross installation, stands at the very centre of the campus and reminds us of our calling to be Christ-centred in all that we do and say. It was a wonderful celebration and a significant moment in the history of the Clyde Nth Campus

 

 

 

Art and Technology Exhibition – Clyde Nth Campus

It was a pleasure to move around the wonderful pieces of Art and Technology presented as part of the Art and Technology Exhibition on Monday night. It was a celebration of the artistic and creative talents of our students. There is strong evidence that the number one attribute identified as the most significant in developing tomorrow’s leaders is creativity. So it is so very critical that we provide the staff, resources and facilities to provide an environment where the creative skills of our young people are enhanced. Equally important is to provide events such as the exhibition to showcase these talents. Congratulations to Cassandra Guevarra of Yr 12 for being awarded the Principal’s Prize for Art. Her piece titled “TV girl” portrayed in her words “… a world dominated by technology, where the youth of our generation falls victim to the pleasures granted by modern devices. ‘TV girl’ is a homage to my history of heavy gaming, where colours from the games I played was the only thing that coloured my otherwise monochromatic life I lived during my high school years. My mind was only concerned with gaming, driving me away from important aspects I refused to face in reality.”

This piece is a sombre message of one of the negative aspects of the technological world we find ourselves in and is a poignant reminder of the perils of gaming and its potential influence in our lives.

Congratulations is also extended to the Principal’s prize for Technology, Taylah Vinci of Yr 10. Taylah’s rustic coffee table embodied many of the qualities modern designers strive for; it utilised 100% reclaimed materials, in this case pine pallets. It demonstrated Taylah’s skill in using traditional manufacturing techniques, in this case using the wooden lathe to turn the legs. And it showcased a contemporary maritime aesthetic. Well done Taylah.

 

 

Yr 6 into 7 Parent Night – CLN

We farewelled the Yr 12s last week and the following week we welcomed the parents and students who will be entering the gates of St Peter’s in 2020. It was wonderful to see so many faces full of anticipation for the beginnings of secondary school. This night is the beginning of their transition into St Peter’s which is quickly followed by the Orientation Day to be held this year on December 3rd.

 

 

Policy Development

Two policies were ratified by the School Advisory Committee in the past two weeks. These policies are: Complaints Handling Policy and Parent Code of Conduct. Both of these can now be found on the College Web-site for your reference.

High Achievers

Congratulations to the following two high achievers who are currently competing in the State Athletic Championships.

Kaylah Barrett (Year 7 Augustine).

Kaylah is a newcomer to the sport. She competed in the 100m and 400m this weekend and achieved Personal Best times in both events. She qualified for the semi final in the 400 and finished in a creditable 7th place. She is definitely "one to watch" in the future and will compete in her favourite event the 200m next weekend.

Shahd Mohamed (Year 10 Romero)

Shahd competed in the 400m. She had the fastest qualifying time in the heat on Saturday and then went on to win the gold medal in the Victorian State final on Sunday. Shahd has now qualified to compete at Nationals in Perth in December but will also compete in the 200m next weekend.

Congratulations to both students.

 

 

Note: There will be no newsletter next week due to the shortened week

Enjoy the week ahead.

House Forum Leaders

It is that time of the year when students put themselves forward to be elected as House Forum Leaders.  The following information from the Student Leadership Structure indicates the role and composition of the House Forums.

 

House Forum:

  • Meet on a regular basis.
  • To assist the House Leader in the organisation of the House and student participation at sports carnivals.
  • To plan and co-ordinate the lunchtime house sports program.
  • To communicate the business of this team to the appropriate student and school forums.
  • Develop proposals from ideas and issues raised at house forums.
  • Present house proposals to the Student Representative Council (SRC).
  • Assist in the planning, co-ordination and management of house and school events.
  • Communicate the business of the House Forum and SRC to the year level via assemblies and the tutor groups

Each House Forum consists of:

  • House Captains
  • 5 Forum Representative from each year level (year 7-11/12)
  • Up to 5 discretionary Forum Leaders
  • House Leader

Student voice is important at St. Peter’s College.  It ensures students are treated with the same sort of respect that we expect all members of our College Community to be afforded.  This is a basic human right that is enshrined in the first of our Rights, Responsibilities and Regulations of St. Peter’s College:  To be treated with dignity and respect.

 

Student voice is also important because it ensures that the feedback, information and perspective that we get from students enables us to be the best school that we can be.  Different perspectives and viewpoints ensure that the implementation of our rules and regulations deliver the best outcomes.

 

Finally, student voice is important as it builds resilience and responsibility in our students as they develop the confidence to speak up and articulate what is important to them.  This is an important life skill and ensures a greater degree of child safety.

 

Students wishing to be Forum Leaders have already delivered speeches to their peers and a number may have also undergone interviews.  The voting system is always a guide for our staff, as we make it clear to the students that appointment to leadership positions is not a popularity contest.  All appointments have to be approved by College Leadership.

 

We thank all our students who have the courage of St. Peter in putting themselves forward for leadership positions and in doing so face judgment from their peers and teachers.  This is indeed courageous and living our motto to “Be Not Afraid”.

Cranbourne Campus Master Plan -  Arts Precinct & Beyond

The long awaited Arts Precinct should be operational within the next week and staff and students are very excited to see the finished product.  It will enable a more open plan approach to learning and teaching in art, ceramics, visual communication and design and multimedia. This should foster greater collaboration and creativity amongst staff and students.

 

Kolbe House will find a home in this refurbished Florence Williams Building that has had an extended foyer added to it that includes a meeting space for the house, break out spaces for learning and presentation area for students.

 

Over the next couple of weeks there will be a lot of movement of staff and students as staff move offices and students move Tutor Group rooms and lockers.  I hope that disruption will be kept to a minimum as this movement occurs throughout November.  It will also include the relocation of the two portable buildings at the front of the school to and area near the Navarre Drive entrance.  This will then provide a new location for the Uniform Shop.

Coaches Boxes

As part of our continual school improvement, we are also installing two coaches’ boxes on the Pat Grant Football Oval. While this may not be as impressive as the Arts Precinct structure it will provide some welcome shelter and protection on those cold and wet winter days when the interchange has a bench to warm!  However, perhaps the most impressive thing about this structure is the work that our VET Building & Construction students have undertaken on this project.  Under the guidance of Mr. Adam Bonnici, the students have done a terrific job and should complete the first box by next week.  The second box will be built next year by the new team.  This project provides really valuable hands on and relevant training and has the added benefit of making good economic savings for the College.

Student voice through student leadership

Last week we wished the graduating class of 2019 all the very best as they begin their journey towards the completion of VCE examinations, or enter the workforce associated with the completion of VCAL. This week we complete the final chapter in selection of the 2020 student leaders with speeches from the Forum Leader candidates at each year level. Sixteen of the elected forum leaders will then be invited to join with the College Captains to form the 2020 SRC.

Student voice plays a pivotal role in the College, ensuring that all students have the ability to express their ideas, creativity, views and concerns. Student voice empowers and enables students to be active and informed citizens within their school community. The skills, knowledge and experience our students gain through formal and informal leadership opportunities supports their ability to have a credible and articulate voice within their wider community.  Below is a reminder of why we have a student leadership structure within the College with the composition of the Student Representative Council as one of the main examples of student leadership.

Student Leadership Rationale

Our Patron Saint, Peter, was made the leader of Christ’s Church on earth.  He led by example with people of all races and beliefs to bring the good news for the Kingdom to all.  He worked tirelessly in the service of others.

Similarly, the students of St. Peter’s College are called to act as servant-leaders to the College and the wider community, following Peter’s example.  In accepting their roles, student leaders at St Peter’s College are encouraged to aspire to be leaders who:

  •  Lead and serve the College community through word and action
  • Are trust-worthy, responsible and supportive of the College ethos
  •  Encourage, motivate and challenge other members of the College community to work together
  •  Honour what has been established and explore and initiate new ways of enhancing the life of the College
  • Are worthy ambassadors for the College in the wider community
  • The staff members of the College community, are called to provide the environment and opportunities for students to explore the challenges of leadership.

SRC Structure

Each Campus Student Representative Council would be made up from a selection of Forum Leaders and the eight Year 12 College Captains:

  • Male College Captain
  • Female College Captain
  • Arts Captain
  • Environment Captain
  • Liturgy Captain
  • Social Justice Captain
  • Male Sports Captain
  • Female Sports Captain

The House Leaders, Pastoral Care Leader and Deputy Principal nominate & vote on two House Forum Leaders from each House to fill the following positions:

  • Year 7 SRC students (at least two)
  • Year 8 SRC students (at least two)
  • Year 9 SRC representative (at least two)
  • Year 10 SRC representative (at least two)
  • Senior (Year 11/12) SRC representative (at least two)
  • Some year levels will have three student representatives as the number of Forum Leaders, but the number of Forum Leaders on the SRC will be fixed at 16 students.
  • House Leaders may choose up to five other Forum Leaders
  • Two Middle School SRC students representatives (Year 8-10) will be elected as Uniform Committee Representatives
  • This gives a total number of students on the SRC as twenty four students

As you can see our SRC represents all year levels and provides a wonderful platform and forum for an active, vital and responsible student voice. We encourage the student leaders to live by our College Student Motto ‘Be Not Afraid’. Developing confidence in their own leadership style and their ability to work for the good of others.

 

What did our students feel about the Forum Leader Selection Process?

My experience of going for the 2020 Marian Year 8 Forum Leader was quite relaxed. It was enjoyable and fun time.     Saoirse (Marian House)

 

I was very nervous and excited to perform my forum leader speech. During my speech I talked about the things I hope to see in Marian house in 2020. I aspire to do my best to encourage enthusiasm and participation within our house and see each of the Marian students grow in confidence.  Olivia (Marian House)

 

My experience was quite interesting.

When I was doing my speech, my face was quite hot, because I had the feeling of a billion eyeballs staring at me. My hands started shaking, and I nearly dropped the paper. Even my friends said I was shaking. Despite all of that, I had a lot of confidence in myself, and I was determined to say the last word in confidence. (Assisi House student)

2020 Rosemary Graham Shield – Let the competition begin

I am officially declaring the Rosemary Graham Shield 2020 open. The tug-of-war is the first major event which takes place at the very end of this term. However, Houses are busy already looking at ways to win points. The Premiers Reading Challenge being the first event to earn valuable points for each House and contribute to developing great readers, a critical skill required for life-long learning.

It was a four way draw for first place, therefore sharing in the points for first place down to fourth. Well done to all.

It's National Mole Day!

Last week I had the pleasure of attending a large number of exciting events held at the College.

The first was HAPPY 6.02 X 10^23 DAY!! For those like me who did not understand, it was National MOL day on Wednesday 23rd October. I had the pleasure of unveiling a FABULOUS table which had been created by the VCAL students together with Sid our Technology assistant. The table is shaped in the form of a periodic table and is an incredible depiction of each of the elements of the periodic table. The incredible craftsmanship and the innovative design is a credit to all involved. The table now sits in pride of place in our science lab and is already in heavy use by students for either extension work, group work or private study.

VCE Drama Performances

On Friday evening I was invited to view the Year 11 VCE Drama solo performances. Once again as often happens I was so proud of our students. The confidence and stage presence of each performer was of an incredibly high standard. Each performer brought their own skills to the task as the audience was at times scared by gangster depictions, laughing at Toy Story parodies and taken back nostalgically to our childhood as Cluedo came to life in the performances. The students demonstrated a clear understanding of the dramatic elements required in their solo performance and made good use of both space and props. Voice projection was excellent and all those who attended were amazed at the ability of our students to switch characters, often with convincing accents.

Congratulations to the students but also to their teacher Mr Patrick Barton. The polished performances auger well for the 2020 VCE Year 12 Drama results.

On Tuesday and Wednesday I attended Year 12 Graduation for both Campuses. When this cohort of Year 12 students came for Year 6 Orientation I was MacKillop House Leader. Since then I have watched this cohort of students as they strutted their stuff in High School Musical. I have climbed down steep mountains in Japan underneath perfectly good chair lists with them.

 I have interviewed many as they applied for accelerated studies and interviewed still more as they were guided into the best subject selection options. I have chatted to many as they volunteered at Breakfast club and listened as others spoke during the student leader interviews. It has been a pleasure to listen to the thoughts and opinions of the fine young men and women who graduated this year from St Peters.

VCE Examinations

This Wednesday the first of the VCE Examinations commence with English as the first exam. We wish all of our VCE students all the very best.

The influence of Catholic education

I always enjoy reading Catholic Education Today that comes home in the bottom of my own children’s school bag. The latest edition, in the editorial, speaks about the influence of Catholic education. It makes note that research both in Australia and overseas, emphasise the positive influence of a Catholic education. Especially with promoting social cohesion and a sense of belonging. Also in the editorial it mentions a survey that investigated racist bullying and concluded that Catholic schools are very successful with encouraging a caring and supportive environment. We promote the above learning in many ways at St Peter’s College. Through our pastoral care programs and in our rigorous contemporary Religious Education curriculum, that encourages a learning about other faith traditions and that we are all made in the image of God. We are proud that our staff and students work and study in a vibrant and diverse environment, where we love one another, as called by the Gospel.

Learnings from Paul

We hear naturally at our College, much about St Peter. So it was refreshing this week to learn more about St Paul. A number of staff had the opportunity to participate in an after school session provided by Mr. Bernard Dobson on ‘In the footsteps of St Paul’. Bernard is an enthusiastic speaker and has a deep passion for theology. He has a wisdom from his many pilgrimages and study, plus from being a Catholic Principal for over 30 years in Melbourne! I encourage all staff, parents, and members of the wider community to attend one of his sessions, when advertised in this section of the newsletter.

A take away learning of my own from this session, amongst many learnings, was a story that has deep implications for us in a Catholic place of learning in regard to the pastoral care that we provide.

 

One Paul story…

Whilst Paul was in prison an earthquake destroyed the prison and immediately the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened. The jailer supposed that all had escaped and prepared to kill himself and his family in a merciful manner to avoid being killed for allowing an escape. But Paul, who did not run away because he was aware of the fate awaiting the jailer, called out to him “Do not harm yourself, for we are all here.” (Acts 16: 28) The jailer and his family were all converted and Paul was set free by the magistrates.

Paul had a great mission from God to preach, but that mission did not stop him from the greater calling to act justly and love mercy to save the jailer.

Are you named after a Saint?

Last week I spoke about the meaning of Halloween. All Saints' Day is the second day of Hallowmas on the 1st of November. It is a national holiday in many historically Catholic countries. Due to our love of a horse race, I think it would be a bit rich to get this as a public holiday as well! The Catholic Church teaches that it does not make or create saints, but rather, recognises them. We recognise them in many ways, some of us are named after a saint. By the way, my favourite saint is Saint Vincent of Saragossa.

Thank you

Recently, we have been fortunate to receive a grant from Trinity Families and the Diocese of Sale. This grant was a joint effort between St Peter’s College and St Vincent de Paul (southern region). I thank Mr. David Edwards, head of Vinnies for our region, with his support with the grant application and his ongoing support of our Breakfast Club, to where the grant funding will be directed.

Upcoming Events:

  • Solomon Island Immrsion, November 20-28.
  • Year 12 Retreat (2020 cohort), November 27-29.
  • Australian Catholic Youth Festival, Perth December 8-10 (6 students, 1 staff member attending).

The Arts News

The Arts and Design Technology Exhibition

The Arts and Design Technology Exhibition proved to be a very successful evening and I would like to thank you our community for your support. The artist Gustav Klimt said ‘art is drawing a line around your thoughts’ and if you see these artworks I think you would agree that the ideas and diversity expressed by our students is extensive. Creativity and problem solving are considered to be critical skills for the 21st century and it is what we do well in the Arts. We develop well rounded learners who take risks and step outside of their comfort zones. It makes me very proud to see the successes of so many of our young people. Congratulations to all involved. I would also like to acknowledge all of the dedicated staff who spend so much time with students and everyone who helped put this exhibition together as it is certainly a team effort. I would also like to thank Zart Art, Bunnings, Spotlight and Cavalier Art supplies for donating the prizes and the winners are listed below.

Congratulations must be also be extended to Cassandra Guevarra for winning the 2019 Principal’s Prize for Art with her digital drawing of ‘T.V. Girl’.

Readarama is the reading program for Year 7 and 8 students implemented by the Library and English Department at the Cranbourne Campus. Its purpose is to foster a love of reading and to improve literacy.

'Everyone is a winner’ with Readarama and almost every student read the required minimum 25 hours between February and the end of Term 3. Many students set their own challenging goal and completed well over 25 hours, some having read over 1000 hours.  The biggest readers in each class and year level received great prizes at our College Assembly. The competitive streak in both teachers and students came to the fore as the Year 7 and 8 classes competed for the free pizza lunch for the class which read the most hours.

An important feature of the program is that students can read whatever they like: fiction, information books, magazines or newspapers in print or electronic form. As well, reading progress is encouraged when students reach various milestones throughout the year.

Congratulations to all the winners and participants, and of course, Happy Reading.

As a long serving member of our teaching staff she will expand on the 25th Anniversary of St. Peter's College, sharing what it was like at the very beginning, the formative years and where the College is at present, leading into further growth and investment in student numbers, staffing and facilities.

Principal's Report

Our Principal attends each of our Parents & Friends Committee meetings, and gives us all an up to date and first hand report of what is happening in our College. By attending these meetings you will be given the opportunity to ask any pertinent questions directly to our Principal.
