Principal's Report

Social Justice Sunday - 24 September

Social Justice Sunday takes place on the first weekend of the school holidays under the theme  “Everyone’s Business - Developing an inclusive and sustainable economy”. As Archbishop Hart reflected on this week's Gospel, Jesus tells the parable of the workers in the vineyard where all become active contributors and are recognised for their human dignity.

 

Inspired by this, the statement calls us to build an economy founded on true solidarity with those who are most vulnerable. Justice  must be built into the very foundations of our community, and business can work for everybody’s benefit, not just for shareholders. The excluded and vulnerable must have a voice in decision-making.

A Prayer for Eradicating Poverty 

Creator God,

 

Your image is alive in every human person
giving to each of us an inviolable dignity.
Create in us a desire to act in solidarity, the ability to work together,
and a willingness to share with others
our time, our energy, our skills and talents and our wealth.

 

As we share and enjoy the fruits of your creation,
restore in us your vision of a world made whole,
and inspire us to commit ourselves to the common good.
 
Gracious God, give us ears to hear, eyes to see and hearts to love,
so that we reflect you in our way of life,
and in our choices, words and actions.
Jesus is the good news to the poor.
As his followers, may we recognise the call to be the same.
Amen.

Parent Teacher Interviews

The end of term provides an opportunity to review students' progress and growth. I encourage all parents to come along with your sons and daughters  to the interviews held this week on Thursday and Friday in the Br Leo Scollen Stadium.

 

From mid-year reports, students with their teachers would have set goals in relation to their application, attitude and levels of achievement. Now is a good time to check in and see how they are progressing.

Year 12 Students - CLC Open These School Holidays

Our Year 12 students will be undertaking their important trial exams over the holiday period. We wish them well as they move into the final month of studies for the year.

 

In order to assist them in their preparation, the Contemporary Learning Centre will remain open from 9am untill 3.30pm  throughout the school holidays except for the public holiday prior to the Grand Final weekend.

VCAL at Work

Last week our VCAL students  completed a community service activity at Wellsprings in Dandenong. This was part of their curriculum program which focuses on Personal Development  and Work Related skills.

 

Wellsprings for Women provides a unique opportunity for people from around the world to discover pathways to empowerment and learning opportunities to help them live their lives more fully. 

 

Our students under the guidance of Ms Leana Bailey assisted the women in the development of a Community Garden. This garden will provide numerous opportunities to educate and help women get ready for work , support and provide for families as well encourage time together for social interaction and relaxation.

PreCAL Program - Work Placements

Our Year 10 students completing the PreCAL program had the enjoyable but challenging experience of a work placement. These placements were taken in a range of settings including  Retail, Construction, Food Services and Education over the last week.

 

Students who do the PreCAL program are more likely to be interested in going on to training at TAFE, doing an apprenticeship, or getting a job after completing the Year 11 and 12 VCAL Pathway Program. Students who take up the VCAL certificate have the unique opportunity to develop work related skills, experience and personal development in a workplace setting whilst contintuin studies at school.

 

What many parents may not realise is students completing the VCAL program still also have the opportunity to transition to University after completing an accredited TAFE course which will provide the pathway into higher studies at University.

 

I express my thanks to Mr Bruce Topham - Career Pathways Coordinator, the Yr 10 PreCAL teachers, Learning Support staff and St Mary’s staff, who helped visit and contact the PreCAL students on their work placement.

Principal's Recommendation Program

The Australian Catholic University is once again offering the Principal's Recommendation Program (PRP) to students from St John’s Regional College.

 

The PRP provides additional consideration by eligible students for entry to ACU in 2018. This presents as a pathway into University for currently enrolled Year 12 students who have experienced educational disadvantage, such as financial, health or family challenges.

 

Access to this program requires a letter of recommendation from the Principal which is issued once an application has been reviewed by the Deputy Principals and relevant House Coordinator. Students considering applying for this program should send an outline of how they meet the criteria by email to the Principal no later than Friday 6 October.

 

Note the online application process outlined below closes on Wednesday 18 October.

 

The online application process is available at  www.acu.edu.au/prpapplication

The application requires:

  1. Year 12 student details
  2. School details
  3. Applicant's ACU course preference(s)
  4. Letter of recommendation from the School Principal

Offers to successful PRP applicants will be made through the VTAC process. It is most important that the PRP student’s ACU preferences are listed in their VTAC application.

School Holidays

After a cold and dark winter term I am sure all are looking for a much needed holiday break.

 

I pray everyone has a safe and happy holiday,  particularly our travellers to Central Australia who head off in the first week of the school holidays. I look forward to and pray for everybody's safe return in Term 3.

 

Tim Hogan, Principal

Road Safety on Caroline Street

Dear Parents and Families,

 

Road safety for students and vehicles at the College

Student Safety is our most important priority, at school and travelling to and from school.

 

The College Board has raised concerns that the pedestrian and vehicle movement on Caroline Street (main College entrance) is not safe and poses a grave risk of serious injury or death to our students, parent drivers, bus drivers and other vehicle drivers.

 

The key concerns are:

  • Unpredictable and unsafe student-pedestrian crossing over Caroline Street. Often from between parked buses and cars, in front of approaching traffic, this reduces driver visibility of pedestrians and increases their risk of being struck by a vehicle
  • Unpredictable and unsafe parent car movement, including:
    • parking in NO STANDING areas
    • double-parking
    • cars pulling out from the kerb as pedestrians cross in front of them
    • cars pulling out from the kerb directly in front of approaching traffic
    • cars pulling out from the kerb straight into a U-Turn across Caroline St

 College Leadership has developed a three-part strategy, approved by the Board, to address this:

 

Students and Parents are to receive this information and advice about:

  • required pedestrian exit from Caroline Street
  • recommended parent drop-off and pick-up locations
  • banned crossing locations

The attached map shows where student-pedestrians are to walk when exiting/entering the College, and where they should cross the road. It also shows drop-off and pick-up locations.

 

We do NOT support parents dropping-off or picking-up their students in Caroline St at peak movement times. We ask all parents to use the recommended locations on the map.

 

We will educate students about safe pedestrian movement in the streets around the College. Students will be told that we will not accept any crossing over Caroline Street, except at the Power St intersection.There will be consequences at school for students who do not follow this direction.

 

The College will petition Council for a Supervised School Crossing on Caroline St.

 

We will also petition Council for all of Caroline St to be made a NO STANDING zone during drop-off and pick-up times. We will produce a template letter and invite parents to join us in this campaigning of council.

 

The College is going to request Police and Council to be a presence at the College during drop-off and pick-up times. 

 

The College will send Police and Council a copy of this letter and ask for their help to improve this road safety situation. Parents are advised that there are significant fines for parking in NO STANDING zones, or for some of the driving behaviours described above.

 

The College Board and the College Leadership emphasise that our primary consideration is the safety of your children and yourselves. 

We ask for your assistance in improving the road safety situation for pedestrians and vehicles in Caroline St and surrounding streets at the start and end of school days.

 

Please contact us here at the College if you have any questions or concerns.

 

 

College News

Welcome to the new St John's Mobile App

The new St John’s Regional College Mobile App is now available free on the App store (for both iOS and Android phones).

 

This App ensures that students, parents and staff stay up to date with the latest school information via their smartphones.

 

Notifications via our App

 

One of the key features of the App is the ability to receive notifications from St John’s on your smartphone in real time. It may be a reminder of an event that is on at the school, an update on an excursion/camp that your child is attending or a message from the Principal.

 

Families select the level of notifications they wish to receive by simply going in to the settings function and opting in or opting out of different year levels.

 

For example if your family has current students in Year 7 and 10 you should ‘opt in’ to notifications for Year 7 and 10 and whole school only and opt out for other year levels.

 

College Tuition Fees 2017

Families will be receiving their College Fee Statement during the holidays.  This is a reminder all College fees need to be paid by the end of November, unless other arrangements have previously been made with the College. 

 

For any enquiries regarding family accounts, please call the Finance Office on 9791 3366.  Payment methods include Direct Debit, Bpay, EFT, and Cash/Cheque which can be paid over the holidays, as the Administration Office is open both weeks.

 

Please contact the Office if any students are not returning in 2018.

Cambodia Immersion Trivia Night

On Friday 8 September, the annual Cambodia Immersion Trivia Night was held in the new Contemporary Learning Centre.

 

The 16 members travelling to Cambodia in November and December rounded up their teams to contest to become Trivia Champions. Also joining us on the night was a staff table and a table of our 2016 Cambodia Immersion participants.

 

The night consisted of six rounds; Pop Culture, Sport, Music, Movies, Famous Faces/Logos and School Subjects. The movie round was conducted as a Kahoot which was a new way of presenting.

 

We successfully raised $1900 on the night, this came through ticket sales, games such as heads or tails and our silent auction. This money goes directly to the School in which the students will spend six days teaching English to the local children. It helps to get quality teacher training for the staff and assists with the general running costs of a school.

 

We would like to recognise the following business and companies who so kindly donated prizes and money to our Silent Auction; Lamont Books, Images of India, Cadbury, Mars, Arctic Foods, AMP Elite and Shinners Plumbing.

 

We would also like to recognise the support of Ms Janine Misso who so kindly coordinates many of these donations and Mr Quentin Smith for being such a humorous and spirited host!

 

Congratulations to Adrianna Grech and her table who were crowned 2017 Trivia Champions!

Cubing Competition

This weekend is the annual Australian Nationals for Cubing in which Andrei Kabigting​ ​and​ ​I​ ​will​ ​be​ ​competing​. ​​Andrei​ ​will​ ​be​ ​competing​ ​in​ ​the​ ​traditional 3x3,​ ​2x2,​ ​3x3​ ​one​ ​handed​ ​and​ ​Pyraminx.​ ​I​ ​will​ ​be​ ​competing​ ​in​ ​3x3,​ ​2x2,​ ​4x4,​ ​3x3​ ​one​ ​handed, Skewb​ ​and​ ​Pyraminx.​ ​We​ ​both​ ​average​ ​approximately​ ​20​ ​seconds​ ​on​ ​the​ ​3x3.​

 

​We​ ​both​ ​started​ ​speedcubing around​ ​April​ ​this​ ​year,​ ​although​ ​we​ ​knew​ ​how​ ​to​ ​solve​ ​the​ ​cube​ ​at​ ​the​ ​age​ ​of​ ​9.​ ​My cousin​ ​had​ ​bought​ ​some​ ​speedcubes​ ​and​ ​I​ ​decided​ ​to​ ​try​ ​it​ ​out.​ ​Andrei​ ​on​ ​the​ ​other​ ​hand,​ ​saw​ ​a video​ ​of​ ​Feliks​ ​Zemdegs,​ ​a​ ​professional​ ​speedcuber​ ​who​ ​lives​ ​in​ ​Melbourne. ​This​ ​persuaded​ ​us to​ ​get​ ​into​ ​speedcubing​ ​and​ ​has​ ​brought​ ​us​ ​to​ ​where​ ​we​ ​are​ ​now.​ ​

 

​We’re​ ​both extremely​ ​excited​ ​for​ ​the​ ​competition​ ​and​ ​what​ ​is​ ​to​ ​come​ ​in​ ​the​ ​future.​ ​We​ ​hope​ ​this​ ​can​ ​inspire others​ ​to​ ​live​ ​up​ ​to​ ​their​ ​full​ ​potential​ ​and​ ​do​ ​the​ ​best​ ​they​ ​can.

Medieval Castle Creation

Year 8 History students were given an assignment to create their own Medieval Castle. Students had to consider what parts to include in the castle and answers topical questions.

 

The goal was to present a poster and castle model to the ‘King’ to persuade him we were worthy of creating his next castle. In the castle model students included sources of defence and protection, living areas and battle grounds. Groups merged two different structures and made it one. This was done as it highlighted the most effective and safe elements of a castle.

 

The making process included a lot of  trial and error, but in the end it turned out how we planned. There was a lot of hard work and effort put into it but we were all very proud of ourselves.

Throughout this experience, we learnt that it takes a lot of effort, hard work and creativity to pull off something like this.

Ecocomp 2017

During Term 3, a number of Year 10 students participated in the 2017 ECOCOMP. During this six week competition, students learnt fundamental Economics concepts in a collaborative and enjoyable space, using modern e-learning techniques.

 

The final week consisted of a 25 multiple-choice question quiz, with the winners receiving gift cards of their choice. First prize this year was shared by Renee Taylor and Monica Opiew with the highest score and Kathaleeya Ros obtained the second highest score and was awarded third place. All three girls can be seen in the photo below.

All students who participated showed enormous commitment to their learning, choosing to stay back after school and participate in this program. Many showed excellent time-management skills, having to juggle family, work and College Musical commitments to participate and should be congratulated for their enthusiasm to learn and effort.

 

Participating students were: Ace Mehegan, Anthony Phillips, Dylan Morris, Ishmeet Singh, Izabel Nalbandian, Kathaleeya Ros, Lucy Doherty, Michael Almeida, Monica Opiew, Roni Wani, Renee Taylor, Robert Adam, Ryan Owen and Selina Lee.

A beautiful evening enjoyed by over 200 guests. Ten stunning Debutantes with glorious dresses and fabulous hair were partnered by very handsome and suave gentlemen who wowed us with their amazing dance routines.
