Principals Report

Term 2
 

Welcome to the third edition of our new newsletter, it is pleasing to be able to share with you many of the positive and productive elements of our school, with the first four weeks of this term being no exception. Below, I will outline some important information about semester timelines, our ICT strategic review, VCE students, feedback on Parent Teacher Interviews, and some points of celebration with our Grade 5/6 Secondary Awareness Day and IDAHOBIT Day. 


 

Parent Teacher Interviews 

At the end of last term, we held our Parent-Teacher Interviews for semester one. It was great to see so many parents and families coming into the school to discuss their child’s learning with us. This year we moved our interviews into a more central location - the Library and Year 12 Study Centre- making it easier to move between interviews and locate teachers. Feedback from both parents and teachers has been positive, so we will maintain this structure for future events.

 

Thank you to those parents who responded to our request for feedback after the event. Your insights are vital in helping us to continue to improve. Key feedback included; management of the ten-minute time slots to keep interviews on track (something we will look at for semester two), and positive feedback regarding the improved booking system. 

 

Awareness Day and Information Night

It was great to see so many families and prospective students attend our Information Evening earlier in the term. Being relatively new to the college, I am impressed by the breadth and depth of programs and opportunities we are able to offer students, and I look forward to continuing to strengthen these in the coming years. Students and families learnt of our:

  • Strong focus on learning and high expectations for success
  • Opportunities for extension in English and Mathematics
  • Sports Excellence and Music Excellence programs
  • International programs (including three language program and study tour opportunities)
  • Reinvigorated careers program
  • Focus on student leadership in the college.

 

School Tours

Coordinated school tours were conducted on Awareness Day, with many prospective parents visiting our college. Deciding where to send your child to secondary school is a significant decision, and I always recommend parents visit schools during operating hours, to gain a true feel for, and sense of the school. 

 

For any prospective parents still wishing to visit our college, to see what we have to offer and to learn my vision for the college over the next few years, please contact the General Office and I will be very happy to conduct a personal tour. 

 

IDAHOBIT Day

It was an honour to speak at our celebration of the national IDAHOBIT day, where I took the opportunity to talk to students about the richness of diversity, and the importance of tolerance, empathy, and unity in communities and society in general. Whilst we see ourselves as a key part of the Moe/Newborough community more broadly, we also recognise the value of ‘community’ within our own college, and it was fantastic to see so many students stand together in support of each other. I would like to thank Karen Thurgood, our school nurse, and Donna Perkins, our wellbeing team leader, for their work in coordinating the day. The Lowanna senior music band set the scene with live music in the sunshine of the main courtyard, and hundreds of students signed a pledge of support amongst the face painting, and informative marquees of Headspace, Red Frogs and Street Games. A great day enjoyed in great spirit. 


 

Semester 2 Timeline

Following a review of our attendance data, and in conversation with our students and staff, we have identified that the last two weeks of Term 2 have historically not always resulted in the rigor and engagement required to ensure the highest levels of learning and achievement for our students. The challenge has been, that by week eight of the term (in line with VCE timelines), semester one exams are complete, and reports have been written. 

In our endeavour to lift expectations and enhance learning outcomes for all students, we have adjusted our timelines to commence Semester 2 on Monday 17th June. This change will bring our Year 7 to 10 classes in line with VCE classes, and Lowanna College in line with most high performing schools. This initiative will also assist in balancing the length of semesters 1 and 2. Practically, this means that students undertaking six-month long electives (e.g. Wood Tech, Music, and Food Tech) will commence their new elective on the 17th June. 

 

 

IT Strategic Review

Late last term we commenced a review of our Information Technology systems, practices and policies. Technology has become and essential element of everyday living, and is at the heart of most workplaces and industries. Technology is also a great enabler for learning, however, it is important that learning is driving the technology, and not the other way around. 

 

In my experience, the current generation of students are great ‘consumers’ of technology (think YouTube, Google, gaming), but not always great ‘users’ or ‘creators’ of technology, in a productivity sense. These latter two are the skills our workplaces and industries are demanding, and it is essential that we, as a school, are providing our students with the necessary skills for life, further study, and employment.

 

At Lowanna College, we are fortunate to have a remarkably skilled team of IT leaders, backed by some of the most sophisticated infrastructure for learning, in Gippsland. Our challenge, as I see it, is the devices in our students hands... something that currently has a high level of variability. The core of our IT Strategic Review is examining our school-supported student device for our 2020 Year 7 cohort, ensuring that with the rapid evolution of technology, our student have the right device, with the right capability for learning, at the right price. Further, we’re are exploring a range of financial supports for all families in our college, to ensure all students have access to a device to support their learning. 

 

In light of the above, any Grade 6 students/families who are joining Lowanna College in 2020, we ask that you hold off purchasing a student device/laptop at the moment, and we will provide detailed information in Term 3. 

 

VCE Students

I continue to be impressed by the focus and positive endeavour of our senior VCE students in the new Year 12 Study Centre. Students have thoroughly embraced the expectation that they are present in the study centre during all study periods, and together with the support of a staff member each session, we will no doubt see the benefit of their effort later this year. I remind students and parents that Year 12, in particular, passes very quickly... we have approximately 15 weeks of learning remaining before students will commence revision and then examinations - now is the time to make the most of every opportunity. There will be plenty of time for celebration in November/December when exams are complete. Make sure you finish the year satisfied you gave it everything you could... it will pay dividends for years to come. 

 

Regards,

 

Adam Hogan

College Principal

College Updates

NAPLAN

Congratulations to our Year 7 and 9 students who completed NAPLAN testing last week. We are very proud of all our students and how they conducted themselves during the tests. Students were focused and demonstrated a positive attitude to succeed and showed a genuine desire to perform to the best of their abilities.

“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and the positive attitude to want to succeed.” 

Well done! No matter what the result, you have done your best.

Outdoor Education

The beginning of term 2 has certainly kept the Outdoor Education students and staff very busy!

 

Our year 9 students have begun exploring alternative methods of exercise, completing their first of three sessions at Jump and Climb Traralgon. The class will also attend The Hardrock Climbing Company in Nunawading before term’s end.

 

Year 10s are exploring all things mountain biking, including multiple school-based bike rides and a day trip to Blores Hill Mountain Bike Park. The students are also looking forward to exploring Lysterfield Park and their overnight camp to Blores Hill.

 

Upcoming experiences to Rubicon Outdoor Centre- Nayook, Arthurs Seat and Mount Baw Baw Alpine Village are sure to keep our Year 11s and 12s focused throughout the coming weeks.

 

On Thursday May 23rd, Year 11 Outdoor and Environmental Studies classes have spent the day at The Enchanted Adventure Garden. The morning was spent tree surfing, whilst the afternoon left them to get lost in the mazes and go down the giant slide.

 

Upcoming dates for Outdoor Education:

Friday May 24th- Year 9 Jump and Climb

Thursday May 30th – Friday May 31st- Year 10 MTB Camp Blores Hill

Tuesday June 11th- Year 9 Hardrock Climbing

Monday June 17th- Wednesday June 19th- Year 11OES5 Rubicon Outdoor Centre

Wednesday June 19th – Friday June 21st- Year 11OES3 Rubicon Outdoor Centre

Semester Two

 

IDAHOBIT Day

On Friday May 17th, we celebrated IDAHOBIT (The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia), to raise awareness and stimulate interest in the LGBTQI community. Students were encouraged to wear rainbow accessories to show their support.

At lunchtime Karen Thurgood (School Nurse) organised for The Senior School band to preform, students signed a pledge of support, had their faces painted as well as visitors from Headspace, Red Frogs and Street Games with activities for students to participate in. 

 

Headstart

Earlier in the month, Lowanna College welcomed a visit from the new Head Start Apprenticeship and Traineeship team.

Head Start is a new program that allows students to undertake an apprenticeship or traineeship at the same time undertaking important paid on-the-job training while completing their VCE or VCAL at school. 

The program helps students develop their skills and experience that employers value. A Head Start apprenticeship or traineeship helps students get the best start in their career.

Please contact Amanda McMahon, Head Start Coordinator or Kirsty Mitchell, Careers Coordinator at Lowanna College or email: [email protected] to talk through the various vocational pathway options available within the Head Start program.

Earn and Learn

 

We are excited to be taking part in the 2019 Woolworths Earn & Learn program. During the previous campaign, we were able to purchase some great resources with the points we earned, thanks to you. From now until June 25th 2019, you can collect stickers at Wooloworths that go towards Earn & Learn points. For every $10 you spend at Woolworths (excluding the purchase of tobacco, liquor and gift cards), you will receive a sticker. These stickers can then be given to your children to collect on a special sticker sheet. Once it is completed, they can simply bring it back here to school or you can drop them into your local Woolworths collection box. The more points we earn, the more we can redeem from a choice of over 10,000 educational resources including mathematics and English resources, art & crafts materials and much, much more! We are grateful for your support and look forward to a successful program. If you have any questions, please ask at School.

Youth Mental Health First Aid

An opportunity exists for parents to attend this free two day Youth Mental Health First Aid Training at Lowanna College on the 18th & 19th July.  Please contact Karen Thurgood (School Nurse) asap as there are only four positions available.  This event is catered for!

Lost Property

We have a number of unmarked, unclaimed grey jackets in lost property, next to First Aid. If your child has lost one please get them to go have a look through Lost Property, as if not claimed within a week, all will be donated to the Wellbeing team. 

Junior School Report

Junior School Report

Hello and welcome back to Term Two,

 

On Wednesday May 8th we hosted our Secondary Awareness Day. We invited the Grade 5 and 6 students from our local Primary Schools to come and experience a day in the life of a Lowanna College student. There was a huge buzz of excitement around the College from the Primary School students! The students reported that they had so much fun participating in Sport, Cooking, Music, Science, Maths and English programs. We look forward to seeing the students again.

 

GPA’s have recently been released and our GPA figures show that we have had a substantial increase in classroom engagement and in turn a decline in behavioural issues.

 

At our recent Junior School Assembly the Lowanna College Mobile Phone Policy was reiterated to students. Since the Junior School Assembly we have begun running classroom blitzes on mobile phone usage which has reduced usage by 70% in a two-week period. Although the students were displeased with this at the start they have come to realise that they are able to focus more in class time without the added distraction of a mobile phone.

 

Our Junior School girl’s football side has made it through to the Gippsland finals to be held in a few weeks’ time. Unfortunately our boys team was not successful and were outmatched by other schools. More results on this are available in our Sports Report Section.

We would like to remind students that as winter approaches and the weather is getting colder, our Uniform Policy still needs to be adhered to. Under no circumstances are hoodies or puffer jackets allowed to be worn. Beanies are also not part of our school uniform and they are not to be worn during the day.

 

There are some exciting opportunities coming up over the next few weeks regarding some student development on Cyber Safety and Bullying. We look forward to this and will keep you all updated!

 

Regards,

 

Mike Santo

Junior School Leader

Middle School Report

Middle School Report

Hello and welcome to my first Middle School report for Term 2. I hope that families enjoyed the break and have returned to school refreshed and ready for a strong finish to Semester 1.

 

I would like to thank Matilda Hardy, Jorjie Coutts and Jaira Donelly-Lynch for representing the Middle school at the Anzac Day ceremony Newborough.

                         

Our Year 10 students will be undertaking exams in a couple of weeks’ time and I would like to take this opportunity to wish them well while advising them to seek as much information/assistance they can from their relevant subject teachers.

 

As winter approaches can students please adhere to our uniform policy, if for any reason there are issues with being able to do this can you please contact the Middle School office.

 

We had our first group of work experience students out last week and have received very positive feedback from employers. This is a very important part in shaping their career choices.

 

At the end of this Term our students will be receiving their Semester 1 reports, I ask that students and parents look at these and use this information to shape the students future learning.

 

Thank you,

Darren Mitchell

Middle School Leader.

Senior School Report

Term Two

Hello from the Senior School,

 

As we progress through Term 2, we are well and truly into what we can consider the ‘Engine Room:’ of the year. This is the time when the most successful students really put their heads down and start to lift the bar. The effort that the students are putting in now will be well rewarded come the end of the year, with strong results that our students will be proud of.

 

Coming up we have a number of major events occurring in the Senior School:

  • Mid-Year Exams – June 6th to June 13th
  • GAT – June 12th
  • Senior School Formal – June 14th

Mid-Year Exams

Mid-Year Exams will affect all Senior School students, with exams occurring for all VCE classes. VCAL classes will run as per usual during this time, so VCAL students will attend school normally. The only exception to this will be is the day of their VCE exam. Their VCE exam will take priority over attending the classes during their exam. A copy of the exam timetable is below as well as on the College’s Facebook page.

GAT

The GAT is a vital event for all students studying a Units 3 & 4 subject. This is compulsory, and is what we can consider our ‘insurance policy’ for our VCE students. The purpose of the GAT is to ensure that if something unplanned was to occur, stopping a student completing end of year exams, they would still be able to receive an ATAR. GAT results are used to generate a score for the unfortunate student. We cannot predict things like accidents and medical emergencies, but the GAT is there to help.

 

Senior School 

Senior School formal will take place at the conclusion of exams. This will be held at Turfside Function Centre, Moe, on Friday June 14th. Students will not be required at school that day, as it is a student free day. Tickets will be $40 and will be available for purchase from Thursday May 23rd from Julie.

 

Regards,

Senior School Team

Sports Report

Sports Report

The beginning of term 2 has been extremely busy in the sports department for many of the year levels with a number of successes.

 

On the 30th of April, our Intermediate Girls AFL team took home the flag at the West Gippsland Intermediate Girls Division Finals. Although successful and undefeated, the girls remained modest and their teamwork and depth within the team shone through. Warragul Regional College, Drouin Secondary College, and Marist Sion College all put up good fights, however, the girls’ strength kept all three teams quiet resulting in them only having one goal scored against them for the day. Following this event, the girls qualified for the Gippsland Intermediate Girls Division Finals which was held on the 21st of May. The girls were extremely successful, beating Lavalla Catholic College in the Grand Final to win the Gippsland Finals and qualify through to the State Quarter Finals where they will play in Blackburn on the 12th of August. This team is the first ever Lowanna Girls AFL team to win the Gippsland Finals and to qualify for State Quarter Finals. We are extremely proud of the girls and wish them all the best next round. The girls day went: Lowanna v Wonthaggi 44-2, Lowanna v Nagle 65-0, Lowanna v Lavalla 18-7

 

The next day, our Junior Girls AFL team also managed to take first place at the West Gippsland Finals. In a low-scoring first game win against Drouin Secondary College, the girls knew the challenge would be beating Marist Sion College. With a mix of experience playing AFL, the girls put in maximum effort to overcome them with Ashley Paul keeping Marist’s star player to limited possessions and Brooke Hunter kicking goals to push us over the line. Ultimately, the teamwork within the group and the effort the girls put in is what got them through to the Gippsland Finals which they will participate in on the 3rd of June.

Early last week on the 7th of May, our Intermediate Boys AFL team participated in the West Gippsland Finals. In a nail-biter first match, the boys went down by a point to Drouin Secondary College. Coming up next against a powerful Marist Sion team, the boys struggled to keep the ball out of Marist’s hands, eventually going down by 9 points. However after the losses, the boys pulled together to win comfortably against Warragul Regional and Trafalgar High. Unfortunately, the boys will not qualify for the Gippsland Finals.

 

The following day, our dedicated Junior Boys AFL team came in on their day off to compete at the West Gippsland Finals. The boys fought hard through the horrible weather and were unlucky to not get a win on the day. Marist Sion, Warragul Regional, Drouin Secondary and Chairo Christian School all proved too strong for our boys on the scoreboard, however, the boys put in all their effort to try and get a win and remained a positive, tight-knit group throughout the entire day. Unfortunately, the junior boys also will not qualify for the Gippsland Finals.

 

District Athletics was held on Thursday May 9th at the Joe Carmody Athletics Track. We had 66 students attend with multiple first place ribbons taken home. All students did well in their events, with 4 of our relays winning and many other individual track and field events. Overall the day was a success with many student qualifying for the next round. 

The Senior Girls AFL team who were supposed to play on Tuesday May 14th, also progressed straight through to the Gippsland Finals due to the other school’s forfeiting, where they played on Tuesday 21st May and were unfortunately unsuccessful throughout the day. Despite coming up against very strong teams the girls enjoyed the day out.

 

Last Thursday, the Senior Boys AFL played their West Gippsland round robin. Whilst losing their first two games by a steep margin to Marist Sion and Drouin, the boys kept their positive attitude and continued to have fun to win their last game comfortably against Warragul Regional. A highlight of the day was Vaa Filia’s excellent mark and goal.

 

Regards,

The Sports Department

Careers

Careers Update

Term 2 has started how term 1 finished off…very busy with loads of Careers activities happening!

 

Year 12 interviews

During week 2 of Term 2 Year 12 students were asked to make an appointment to come and speak about what it is they intend on doing in 2020 and beyond. Students were asked to complete an information sheet about what it is they would like to be doing next year, support needed, or concerns they may have. This process is very important to determine what support or assistance students may need coming to the end of their school life. To date 106 students have participated, which has been a fantastic response. Students will receive a summary of our discussions which may include but not limited to resource links, recommendations, and resources to support career options and resume suggestions.

 

TIS (Tertiary Information Session) day

This week our Year 12's attended a TIS day at Federation University. A collective of Universities, TAFE Institutes, and Independent Tertiary Colleges helped our students prepare for future careers. Year 12 students attend a presentation about VTAC and transitioning to tertiary education after high school, they then had an opportunity to meet and gain information from a range of tertiary institutions.

 

Work Experience

Group 1 completed their work experience placement last week. We conducted site visits or calls to see how students were enjoying their time and chat with them about their experience in the workforce. The feedback from both students and the local business has been very positive.

 

Our Year 10 students have really enjoyed this week discovering the world of work and learning new employability skills. On behalf of Lowanna College I would like to personally thank and recognise the wonderful local businesses that have supported our work experience program.

 

These businesses are:

I Am Ready Program

I Am Ready is a Gippsland-wide program to support secondary school students with a learning barrier or disability. Participants will learn work-readiness skills and be provided with opportunities for supported work experience. Lowanna has 3 students participating in this wonderful program.

The Programs aim is to skill the participants up so they are ready for work experience next term...and they are off to a great start!
A huge thank-you from Lowanna College to the Baw Baw LLEN and ‘I am ready’ Program for facilitating and supporting our students to gain these essential employability skills.

 

 

STEM Sisters

This week our STEM Sisters visited Gippsland Tech School (GTS) to look at different skills and types of technology influencing industries. Students learned about 3d design and laser cutting, coding and robotics, animations and sports science. This was a great day and the students enjoyed their time at GTS.

 

VEET Program

The Victorian Energy, Education and Training Program (VEET) helps students to learn more about the industry and opportunities available, by taking them through a series of industry orientation activities. Students will get to visit AGL/Loy Yang Power Station & AusNet Services Terminal Stations, an energy training centre, and complete a 3 day work placement along with other activities.

Lowanna has 3 successful applicants which is fantastic for our school and a wonderful achievement for these students. This week the program commenced with an Induction evening.  Congratulations Zac Skinner, Zoe Mitrovic and Jacob Johnson!

 

Guest Speakers

Hex Health

Former Lowanna student and now Business Owner, Josh Whittaker, came to school to speak to our students about his journey. Josh is a Senior Exercise Physiologist and Director of Hex Health.

Josh has completed a Masters in Clinical Exercise Physiology (Deakin University) and a Bachelor of Human Movement with Honours from RMIT. Hex Health was developed so that Gippsland residents have access to the knowledge that will assist them with changes to their diet and exercise. 

The students loved hearing from Josh and found him extremely relatable! A big thank you to Josh for taking time out of his busy schedule to speak with our students.

Latrobe Community Health Services

Speech Pathologist, Adrienne Robinson visited our school to talk to students about a career within the Allied Health sector. Adrienne has a Bachelor of Health Science and Masters of Speech Pathology.

Students loved listening to Adrienne’s journey and learning about the aspects of her job that she loves! Students heard about the diverse range of jobs available in Allied Health. Adrienne showed the students a wonderfully detailed PowerPoint presentation which they have access to via our Careers Department.

Thank you Adrienne and Latrobe Community Health Services!

Gippsland Water

Last Wednesday, Engineer and former Lowanna student Kathleen Kent, came to speak to our students about her career with Gippsland Water and her journey to get to where she is now. Kathleen spoke about her time at Lowanna, her University studies and what her engineering role entails. Students asked some great questions and thoroughly enjoyed hearing about Kathleen’s journey.

Thank you Kathleen and Gippsland Water!
