“I think a good leader is someone who has all aspects of RIC – respect, integrity and courage.”

 

These were the words of one of our Year 8 boys in my Life Skills class this week, as we reflected on leadership.

 

We were prompted in our thinking about leadership by two things: we are soon to farewell our Class of 2018, who have been terrific leaders and role models for the younger students, and the Senior School celebrates at this week’s Investiture Service our 2019 Student Council.

 

While the Year 8s were generally agreed that leadership is not always about a badge and a position – any member of a community can show leadership, they said – there was also quite a degree of unity about what leadership is actually about.

 

When asked “What makes a good leader?”, Year 8s emphasised that an effective leader ought to:

 

  • have a clear vision which they are working towards
  • be a positive role model to those around them
  • be encouraging of their peers to help them be their best selves
  • be motivated, and motivate others, to do what is ‘right’
  • inspire others to ‘achieve great things’
  • tackle hard challenges with a positive mindset

 

Amongst these responses, it was heartening to hear just how often RIC – the College values of respect, integrity and courage – was referred to by our Year 8s as they reflected on what defines effective leadership, and I have every confidence that our 2019 Student Council will strive to embody RIC (and live up to the rest of the Year 8s' expectations!) as they prepare to take the baton from our current leaders.


We wish them well and we thank them in anticipation for the leadership they will provide in the College’s 39th year.

 

(A list of the 2019 Student Council members is available in the Senior School section of this edition of The College Courier.)

A CULTURE OF SAFETY AT ALL SAINTS' COLLEGE

All Saints’ College believes that the safety of our students is paramount. The College values children and understands that purposeful planning and action must take place to ensure the safety of children. It balances a safety focus with positive interactions and environments that contribute to the healthy development of children.

The College takes action to protect children from physical, sexual, emotional, psychological and cultural abuse and from neglect. This commitment by the College is embedded in its culture and responsibility for taking action is understood and accepted at all levels of the school.

The College deliberately and systematically:

  • creates conditions that reduce the likelihood of harm occurring
  • creates conditions that increase the likelihood of any harm being discovered
  • responds appropriately to any disclosures, allegations or suspicions of harm.

A Child Safe Organisation

As a child safe organisation, All Saints’ College:

  • takes a preventative, proactive and participatory stance on child protection issues
  • promotes a child safe environment as the main consideration in all of its activities and management practices
  • embeds child safety in its culture and ensures it is understood at all levels of the organisation
  • maintains a dynamic process of learning, monitoring and reviewing
  • builds child safe and child friendly environments
  • understands that the participation of children is fundamental

Building a Child Safe and Friendly Culture

The College has adopted the ‘Child Safe Organisations WA: Guidelines’ to establish a framework around which to build a child safe and friendly culture. Creating and maintaining a safe and friendly organisation is a dynamic and ongoing process of learning, monitoring and reviewing processes and practices that affect the safety of young people within the College. The structure required to build a child safe and friendly culture is organised into 9 domains, the fourth of which is ‘child safe and friendly policies’.

 

Child Safe & Friendly Policies

Child safe and friendly policies outline a commitment to safety and how things should happen in the College – attitudes, behaviours, responsibilities and procedures. Policies must be understood, implemented and actioned every day to prevent harm.

At All Saints’ College we action this commitment in a number of ways inclusive of, but not limited to, the following examples:

  • Policies detail the College’s commitment to child safety and proactive steps taken to address child safety
  • The College has in place a Staff Code of Conduct, risk assessment and management strategies (covering planning and actioning of excursions, incursions and the Outdoor Learning Program), feedback and complaints procedures, and a Student Protection Policy that includes clear requirements regarding disclosures
  • The College has in place transparent policies that detail staff and volunteer management (including recruitment, education and development), ongoing supervision and disciplinary procedures
  • Staff are trained in the College’s child safe policies and they are discussed in a variety of forums
  • Students are supervised during Recess, lunchtime and during activities.

If you have anything to add or wish to comment on the way that this child safe domain is addressed at the College, please feel free to contact the Dean of Student Wellbeing, Mr Tim Russell, at the College by email at [email protected]

Junior School

From the Dean of Junior School

WELCOME BACK TO JUNIOR SCHOOL FAMILIES

I hope all Junior School families were able to have a relaxing and energising break and are now ready for an engaging final term of the year. This term, students and staff will be making the most of the community they have developed throughout the year while also looking ahead towards transitioning into 2019. This is particularly exciting for Year 6 students as they enjoy their final term of Junior School while gaining increased familiarity with the Senior School students and staff. It is also a time for students to reflect on their experiences and pave the way for the next cohort who make their way to their final year of Junior School. Term 4 is a wonderful time that really benefits from great relationships and a well-oiled, resilient community of learners!

 

SOME HIGHLIGHTS FROM TERM 3:

GREAT WALL OF CHINA PROJECT

During Weeks 9 and 10 of last term, students from Pre-Primary to Year 6 learnt in depth about China and focused on the Great Wall. There was a Great Wall of China quiz competition and students used their inquiry skills to visit websites to search for answers. They had class discussion on who built the Great Wall, when/why it was built, and what it is used for today.

 

Some students used their deep-thinking skills and collaborated to build their own Great Wall. They were asked to imagine that tissue boxes were bricks and to construct a wall of their own, which included information about the Great Wall of China. Students from Year 3 applied the knowledge they gained from the quiz to design their bricks.

 

YEARS 2-4  BLESSING BAGS PROJECT

Throughout Term 3, Pre-Primary to Year 4 students collected a range of hygiene items to help homeless people in the Perth community through our Service Learning relationship with Anglicare. The items were then collected and packed by Year 2 and 3 students into blessing bags which will be distributed by our Year 10 Anglicare Ambassadors. Thank you to all of the families for your generous contribution. This project was powerful for all students and staff involved, and we look forward to this collection again next year.

 

TERM 4 ACTIVITIES:

SAVE THE DATE

STUDENT, HOUSE AND ARTS COUNCIL INVESTITURE

This week we were delighted to present badges recognising students on the Student, House and Arts Councils for 2019. We congratulate them on their selection and look forward to working with them in these significant roles. The full list can be found by clicking HERE.

 

Positions of student leadership at All Saints’ College provide opportunities for students to serve their community and to fulfil the College’s Mission and Vision. Through their leadership they set an example for all to follow. College leadership roles provide opportunities for students to develop and exercise intrapersonal, interpersonal and employability skills that they will be able to apply later in their lives. Importantly, as part of our child safe focus, student leadership at the College provides the opportunity for student voices to be expressed and heard. Student leadership also provides the opportunity for our young people to engage in critical and creative thinking about the operations and culture of our community.

 

All Saints’ College students should display a high degree of individual responsibility in upholding the ideals and rules of the College at all times. The College’s Values are:

Respect: for self and others, for community and environment.

Integrity: acting with moral strength and grace, guided by humility and compassion.

Courage: to be our best selves.

 

Our leaders, along with all students of the College, are expected to demonstrate these values in the way they conduct themselves and interact with others. Student leaders have a particular role to act as both guides and mentors for other members of the College.

 

Leadership is all about ‘service’. A Christian model for leadership is centred on Jesus’, for example, “I am among you as one who serves”. The centrality of service to Christian mission can readily be found in the blessing call to action that begins, “Go forth into the world in peace; be of good courage; hold fast to that which is good; render to no one evil for evil; strengthen the faint hearted; support the weak; help the afflicted; give honour to all; love and serve the Lord.” For these reasons our engagement in service as a community is not simply what we do; rather, it is an expression of our identity. Therefore, at All Saints’ College service and leadership are inextricably bound together. When you serve others you provide leadership within that community, and when you lead you serve others.

 

A wide range of service and leadership opportunities is provided for students to enable their development as individuals and members of communities, and to make a positive difference in the world. These include, but are not limited to:

·         Junior School Student Leadership Team

·         Senior School Students Council, Arts Council and House Council

·         Year 7 & 8 Service and Class Representatives

·         Year 9 Service Council

·         Service opportunities with and for our partner organisations across all year groups

  -------------------

UNIFORM IN TERM 4

As we begin our final term for 2018 and the days begin to get warmer, we move back into summer uniform. Unlike our two/three week transition into winter uniform at the beginning of Term 2, the move into summer uniform has begun from the start of this term. The reason for this is that students in summer uniform are able to wear trousers, jumpers and track suits (when in sport uniform) with summer uniform, and so are able to stay warm if the weather is a bit cool.

 

It is important to note that students often grow markedly across the winter period. Given the time that has passed since students last wore their summer uniform, we ask students and parents to check to ensure they are ready and fit appropriately.

 

Some particular points are worth noting:

  • Dress hem length must be on the middle of the knee.
  • Shoes must be black lace-ups with leather uppers. Suede, patent leather, patterns, slip-ons, stack and platform heels are not acceptable.
  • Shoes worn with the Physical Education uniform must be a sports shoe (runners, joggers) and predominantly white. Laces must be white. Surf, skate, walk or casual shoes are not acceptable, and canvas shoes (including Dunlop Volleys, Vans, Skechers and similar styles) are a safety concern when playing sport and must not be worn.
  • Students are expected to keep their hair neat and tidy at all times. Hair must be clean and neatly combed/brushed.
  • All hair that is collar length or longer must be tied back.
  • Hair is not to be styled in such a way that it is capable, at any time, of falling forwards towards or covering the eyes or face.
  • Hair ties or ribbons may be of the College pale blue, dark blue or white. Headbands, hair combs, elastics and clips, must be natural hair colour, pale blue or dark blue. 
  • Extremes of cut, style or colour are not permitted. This includes hair which is obviously dyed, undercuts, and where hair is cut to very different lengths within the one style. The Dean of Student Wellbeing has the final decision on what style or colour is considered extreme at All Saints’ College.
  • Students must always have their face clean shaven.
  • Girls may wear one pair of small, plain gold or silver matching studs or sleepers in the earlobes only, one in each ear. Students may be sent home from school if they present with piercings that cannot be removed at school. Plastic retainers are not permitted.

Students must start Term 4 with an appropriate hairstyle. Students whose hair is outside our expectations may be withdrawn from class or sent home until their hairstyle is corrected.

 

When purchasing sports shoes new, please be aware of uniform requirements and err on the conservative side regarding any colour on the predominantly white shoes.

 

Thank you for your support of these standards for College dress and appearance.

 

Respect for oneself, others and the College begins with the small things. The aim is to ensure that the above expectations are met by all students all the way through to the end of the academic year. I ask for parents’ support with this matter and ask that you spend some time checking your child’s uniform to ensure the above expectations are met.

 

Images of the correct summer uniform, for boys and girls, are shown below:

NEW UNIFORM ITEM

Girls’ formal summer shorts for students in Years 3–12 are now available from the Uniform Store.

YEAR 11 OUTDOOR EDUCATION WHITE WATER KAYAKING CAMP

In Week 7 of Term 3, the Year 11 Outdoor Education students completed their final camp and practical assessment for the ‘Year on the Water of the Avon and the Swan’ for their three-day White Water Kayaking Camp.

 

With river water levels being the highest they have been for many years on this camp, the pace of the water tested all of the students, allowing them to demonstrate the skills and techniques learnt in sessions at Shelley foreshore during the five weeks leading up to it.

 

This kayaking camp was the culmination of all the work these students have done throughout the entire year, working on and improving their time-management skills, organisation, teamwork, leadership, communication and knowledge about the outdoor environment. The students all did extremely well on this camp, exhibiting the skills they have learnt in Outdoor Education. The group worked very well together and are now part of a very small group of people in Perth that can say they have White Water Kayaked!

 

The Outdoor Education students are congratulated on their efforts and ability to step outside their comfort zone on this camp. They have achieved an incredible amount this year.

ALL SAINTS’ COLLEGE BASKETBALL CLUB 2018 WINTER SEASON

Thank you to all our players and parents who were involved in the 2018 Winter Basketball Season, with a special mention to all the coaches and team managers who volunteered their time and energy to guide our students through their training and games.

 

We had 35 teams compete in the Willetton Basketball Competition, with some teams having very successful seasons.

 

Eight of these teams reached their Grand Final, with five teams winning their divisions.

 

Congratulations to the following teams who won their Grand Finals:

A special mention goes to the ASC 008 Under 12 Girls B2 team who finished fourth overall but made the Grand Final and beat the second-placed team to take out the top spot in their grade.

Commendations also to the following team who had wonderful seasons:

ASC 022 Under 14 Girls B1 team made it to the Grand Final of their division. Below is what their coach, Lisa Biddulph, had to say about their year.

 

“We had a fantastic season in a really tough division. My goal for the season was to make it to the semi-finals, but we did one better and made it to the Grand Final. These girls showcase the teamwork and skills that are needed to succeed. Most Valuable Player (MVP) for the season was awarded jointly to Scarlett McVeigh and Toni Aniyi (Year 6), and the Coach’s Award to Emily Masaryk (Year 6).”

Coach of the ASC 012 Under 10 B Girls team, Juliet Masaryk, said her team had a great season overall.

 

“We had a rollercoaster of a season – up, down and everything in between. The girls displayed respect, integrity and courage at every game, and always had a smile on their faces.

I am very proud of these girls, and what they achieved. We can’t wait for next season.”

ASC 019 Under 10s B Team Manager Nadia Mansour said the Year 4 team had a great season.

 

“Our Year 4 boys had a great winter season and wrapped up the season with a picnic in the park.  

Congratulations to Ivan Ung (Year 4) on his MVP Award and Jacob Skender (Year 4) for receiving the Coach’s Award. A big thanks to Mr William Ung for stepping into the coach role late last season and for agreeing to coach our boys for the 2018/2019 Summer Season.”

Well done to all our teams this year for their effort, dedication and commitment to training and games. We hope to see you next year for another successful season.

 

Each season we continue to grow, and we encourage any new players who want to join or are thinking of getting into a team to come and see what it’s all about.

Service Learning

TERM 3

Term 3 was a very busy term, packed full of great Service Learning activities and opportunities at the College.

 

The Year 10 students who took on Service Leadership positions for 2018 have been working hard at providing a variety of services to some of our key College partners, including The Salvation Army, Nulsen Disability Services and Amana Living. We also saw the Year 10 Service Leaders provide wonderful support to the Junior School through the newly established Literacy Mentors program that pairs Senior School and Junior School students in an aim to improve both students’ literacy. These programs have been a wonderful success and we are looking forward to welcoming the energetic Year 9 students who will step into the Service Leadership roles in 2019.

 

Term 3 also saw the Junior School students demonstrate their strong dedication to Service through the collection and packing of ‘Blessing Bags’ for The Salvation Army. The Year 2–4 students worked to collect hundreds of toiletries and personal care items to donate to people living with homelessness. With the help of the Anglicare Ambassadors, the students packed hygiene products into small gift bags to give to these people.

 

REBOUND WA

The Year 8 students celebrated the end of Term 3 with an exciting social at Bounce. The students had a wonderful time exploring the thrilling venue, as well as donating the profits from the event to Rebound WA, who recently visited the College to run a Staff vs Students Wheelchair Basketball game.

 

ALL SAINTS’ PARISH FOOD COLLECTION

The Year 5 students have been exceptionally busy collecting items for the All Saints’ Parish Food Collection, accumulating over 700 items so far. Thank you to everyone who supported the community and provided food for those in need.

 

BAYULU REMOTE COMMUNITY SCHOOL VISIT

In Term 4, Year 8 Creative Industries students are choosing what to design and make and what problems to solve. They will apply their two-years of design thinking to create wonderful new products for Runway or innovative solutions for problems they care about.

 

The Year 10 Creative Industries students are also choosing how to invest their time in Term 4. They have chosen from: Passion Project, $20 Boss; Wolf-Pack Leadership Training; Mentoring Younger Students; and Social Enterprise. We look forward to seeing how they learn and grow this term.

 

MILLENNIUM KIDS UNITED NATIONS CONFERENCE

Nine students from Years 4–11 attended the Millennium Kids United Nations Conference over the holidays. Millennium Kids (which is a new partner of Propeller Industries) has spent the last 20 years empowering students to improve the planet one change at a time.


We were happy to launch our partnership during the school holidays with this workshop. Over the course of three days, students from across the state focused on the UN Sustainability Goals for 2030. During the workshops, students toured the Red Hill Landfill facility, the Suez Recycling Centre, and had a sneak-peek into the Precious Plastic machines that we will have on campus in 2019.

RUNWAY

Our pop-up shop, Runway, which was designed by a Year 5 student in 2017 and built by our maintenance staff, is open in Term 4 at Wanju Café!

 

Currently, the shop features Years 10 and 11 students’ “$20 Boss” enterprises, and the Year 6 students’ cleaning products.

 

Going forward, the shop will display the goods and services of enterprising students from all year levels, and we hope it will become a daily feature of life at the College.

 

Runway will remain in place at Wanju as a trial for the remainder of this year.

 

If you would like to purchase something from Runway, please take the item to the counter at Wanju. Otherwise students will be present to sell at 8.00am – 8.50am and 3.30pm – 4.30pm, Wednesdays and Fridays.

 

Other students keen to sell their items in Runway are encouraged to email Head of Propeller Industries, Ms Laura Strentz: [email protected]

Learning Technologies

Browsers

Internet Explorer (IE) is getting a bit old and tired these days – SEQTA will officially not support IE from next year onwards and if this is the main internet browser you use I encourage you to start using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge – I use both. Here is how you change your default browser in Windows 10.

 

Laptops in bags

The TSC staff will always send students back to class if they have not brought the laptop over in its bag. Please understand the importance of this – in the last week of Term 3  we had 16 laptops badly damaged so it is vital that we always have the laptops in a bag. If the laptop is damaged, even in the bag, there is a charge of $100 to have the laptop fixed under warranty.

PowerPoint screen recording

Having the ability to record your screen is incredibly useful. Here is how to use PowerPoint to do a screen recording 

This could be used in so many ways!

Assistive Technology Tip

Microsoft Edge enables you to select any text on a web page and have it read to you.

Accessing text-to-speech and having text read aloud to you is just a click away when browsing in Microsoft Edge.

  • Open the Microsoft Edge browser
  • Search for your topic of interest
  • Right click on text and select the 'Read Aloud' option
  • Adjust the reading speed and voice via the read aloud tool bar which appears in the top, right of the browser
  • Use the tool bar forward, back and play/pause triangles to jump to which parts of the text you would like to hear

New filtering options in RollCall

RollCall is the program we use to enrol in cocurricular activities at the College. This week Junior School students from Years 3-6 were able to view and sign up for their activities in RollCall.

 

RollCall is developed by parent Alex Pooley who has worked closely with College ICT staff to meet our needs.

 

A recent update includes the ability to filter choices better by term, area, day and time.

Mr Greg Port 

Head of ICT Integration

Community

P&F

The position of P&F President is limited to a three-year-term and, as such, current P&F President Tracey Ash will be stepping down from the role at the AGM early next year. We will formally thank Tracey for her hard work on behalf of the College community at a later stage.

 

As a result, the P&F Committee and the College are now seeking expressions of interest from parents and guardians for this role, along with other positions such as the Vice President.

These important positions within the All Saints’ community are supported by the P&F Executive and the College’s Administrative staff.

 

For more information regarding this, please contact our Director of Community Relations, Mr Ben Dahlstrom, at [email protected] for a confidential discussion.

Young children and their parents or guardians within the local community have enjoyed the opportunity to connect and share experiences through All Saints’ College’s recently established Playgroup.

 

In partnership with Playgroup WA, the program is held in our Lower Theatre on Tuesday mornings during term time for children aged between 0 and 3 years old, and their parents or guardians.

 

This new College initiative offers a setting for children to learn how to get along with others, try new ways of playing and become familiar with a school environment.

 

The young participants enjoy a range of indoor and outdoor activities which promote early literacy and numeracy skills, as well as sharing in a morning tea with their loved ones and new friends.

 

All Saints’ welcomes new families in the wider community to join our Playgroup and enjoy the benefits of socialising in a relaxed, fun and supportive environment.
