From the Principal

Term two is always a busy term. Since the last edition of the newsletter students at CESC have taken part in a range of learning activities within and beyond the classroom walls. Students have engaged and participated in Year 9 City Experience, Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, School Cross Country, Interschool Sports, The GAT, Year 10, 11 and 12 mid-year exams, Information Nights, Free Dress Day and Multicultural Day. I am grateful to our staff who provide a range of events and activities for our students to thrive and congratulate the students for participating and taking advantage of the opportunities they are given. 

 

Senior School Information Night and Course Counselling is an important time for Year 10 students. Last week all Year 10 students attended an assembly where they were introduced to the Senior School courses. The students started to seriously consider and think about their future pathways. The Senior School Information night was held last Thursday 14th June. The evening gave parents and students the opportunity to gain a better understanding of Senior School and our VCE, VCAL and VET options. I would like to thank all the parents and students that attended, as education is not only a journey for the students it is a partnership between the school, the student and their parent. In addition I would like to thank the Senior School teachers and the careers team for providing invaluable information and assistance on the night. 

 

All Year 10, 11 and 12 students recently participated in mid-year examinations. Research shows that students perform much better when exposed to extensive exam training and explicit feedback.  Mid-year exams provide students with the opportunity to practice exam techniques in order to maximise results. Teachers can also address areas of concern in student performance and exam technique. This year we will continue to utilise Year 10 mid-year student exam results as an indicator for 2019 course selection. Our leadership team will be examining these results in preparation for course counselling interviews and the results will serve as a guide to the appropriateness of subject selection.

 

Multicultural Day was once again a great celebration of the great diversity of cultures within our school. It was wonderful to see performances from students and staff at the Multicultural Day Assembly. I hope the members of the community that attended enjoyed the fantastic performances.

 

Semester 1 reports will be available on Compass during the last week of Term. This date has been slightly delayed due to software issues with Compass. It is essential that students and their families reflect on the feedback regarding their child’s progress.

 

I would like to wish all Students, Parents and Staff a happy and safe break and look forward to seeing you all at the start of Term 3 on the July 16th.

Year Level Assemblies will be held throughout each term and these gatherings will allow students who are awarded Value Cards to be recognised and accomplishments celebrated.

Traffic and Parking Around School

Please be aware that there has been an increased presence of parking enforcement officers along Stately Drive and connecting streets. Please consider the following to keep your, and other children safe

Park the car in a legal parking area (in all weather conditions) and walk your child to meet them at the school gate

 

- Avoid parking on the opposite side of the road and calling your children. Excited children often dash out onto the road and forget to look for traffic.

- You are not to park within 20 metres of the approach side, and 10 metres of the departure side, of a children’s crossing unless parking bays are marked

- Never park or drop off children on the school crossing no matter how brief it seems

- Never double park. This means you are not allowed to stop next to another vehicle to let passengers in or out

- Avoid letting children walk through car parks. Teach them the dangers of reversing vehicles, cars on the move etc.

- Insist your children get in and out of the car using the safety door (the rear kerb side door). This will keep them out of the flow of traffic

- Make sure your children are buckled up at all times when the vehicle is moving

Student Success

Shaun Warren, Year 9

Shaun is part of the College's Sports Pathway Program (SPP) which is an elective for yar 9 and 10 students who are passionate about sport.

 

I picked up pole vaulting at the start of the season as the pole vault coach saw my high jump ability, he came up to me and said, “you have a big leap on you, have you ever tried pole vault”? It did look like a hell of a lot of fun, he told me what days training were, I went every Saturday morning.

 

Being my first year of taking athletics seriously I only had three days of training a week and competition days. At the start of the season I turned up to training with spikes that barely fit. After the first training coach looked me in the eyes and said, “The key to success is doing what you enjoy”. And that's when it stuck with me. So, we got to my first comp and two weeks out I sprained my ankle. I was on crutches for a week, competed, jumped 2.40 metres. I wasn’t happy with it, but coach said I came 7th in Victoria which is ok I guess. I worked hard from then to my next big comp, late nights, early mornings… all the things you would expect.

 

The next big comp came up and that’s when i jumped my PB of 3.10 metres which i still wasn’t happy with but everyone else was. So next was Sydney as I hit the qualifying jump of 2.40 metres. I came 6th, jumping 3.00 metres in Sydney, which again i wasn’t happy with but it was a great experience meeting some Olympians and Commonwealth Games competitors and seeing my mate the fastest 15-year-old in Australia. Overall it was a great experience seeing all my competition for next year and expectations of what needs to be changed.

Year 7/8 News 

Assistant Principals News

It has been another busy term for our Junior School students at Cranbourne East Secondary College.

A major highlight this term was our annual Cross Country event held onsite at the school. Our Junior School students participated in the run with high levels of enthusiasm.

 

Within the classroom, our Junior School students have been working hard on subject specific tasks and activities. Our Junior School students have also been recognised for demonstrating and displaying the school values of Respect, Responsibility, Growth and Achievement.  

 

Please be reminded that the Year 8 Camp is fast approaching. If there are any queries regarding the camp, please make contact with Mr Brent Hobba on the school’s phone number: 5990 0200.

I hope everyone in our school community has restful and relaxing holiday break.

Year 8 News

On behalf of the Leaders of Year 8 we would like to thank all Class Captains and the other student leaders who have given up their lunch times to design and complete the art project now hanging in the Year 8 section of the green building. They are currently working on the second of 4 instalments revolving around the “Seasons” theme, we look forward to seeing the final three pieces.

 

We would also like to give a big shout out to all those students who have received Post Cards and Values Cards over the term. Your efforts in going above and beyond the schools expectations have set a great example to the entire cohort.

 

One last thank you needs to go to Simone Liebhart, admin officer for the 7s and 8s. Simone has worked hard all semester supporting not only staff but all the students and parents with anything and everything related to the Junior school.

 

YEAR 8 CAMP PRESENTATION:

The Year 8 Team would like to thank all the parents and students who attended the Informative Year 8 Camp Information Evening and BBQ held on the 7TH June and presented by the camp organisers, OutBeyond. The presentation discussed topics such as safety, the surfing, the grounds and an outline of program that our Year 8s will experience. It allowed parents the worthwhile opportunity to ask and clarify any questions from, not only, the College, but from those who run the camp. It was a nice evening that enabled all involved to gain a good understanding of the exciting program that awaits our Year 8s.  

 

YEAR 8 SPORT:

The Year 8 Team would like to send out a huge congratulations and thank you to all the Year 8 students who recently represented Cranbourne East Secondary College in different team sports. It was great to hear that all the teams played hard and tried their best. In short, the results were as follows: The Year 8 Boys Soccer Team won their competition, the Girls Soccer Team came third and the Netball Teams also put in a strong showing within their tournament. Overall, once again, thank you to all involved and for your efforts on behalf of the College.

Year 8 Inter-school Netball - Wednesday 13th June

We had two teams of netballers who were looking forward to a day of competition on Wednesday 13th. The girls have shown their commitment by attending training sessions over the last six weeks, happily giving up their lunchtimes to practice together.

 

On the day, the A team met the biggest challenge for the day in Game 1 against Alkira Secondary College. This team had some outstanding players and worked together extremely well. After this initial defeat, the girls really came together as a team. Sophie and Taylah found their groove in the goals, with Nikki, Maia and Chloe feeding them well from the centre court. Ayva, Kaylah and Lupe did a superb job in defence. Whilst Tegan was the most flexible player on the day, moving from goals, to centre court and then into defence, where she was able to put the opposition goalers under considerable pressure. Luci was unable to play due to illness, but was a great help to me on the day.

At the end of the day, the A Team finished second in our pool and third overall out of nine schools. A great team effort.

 

The B team made more improvements than any team I have seen in a long time. Through out of control laughter, the girls learned more about the rules of the game, made better decisions about passes and were able to get some wins on the board. Faith and Shaylen proved to be a strong combination in goals, settling into a nice rhythm by the end of the day. Tammeka, Zarrah, Grace and Soli played in the centre court and, with each game, improved their leads and timing. Perry and Miriam held up the defence positions well, and Perry showed the flexibility of swinging into goals as well. We also discovered that Soli is a bit of a gun in defence; we’ll need to remember that for next year!

Ms Nicholas - Coach

 

Year 8 Boys Soccer

On Wednesday 13th June, 16 Year 8 students participated in Casey South Division Soccer. Six weeks of training had the boys fired up for competition day.

 

In our first fame against Casey, the boys started slow, before scoring 3 goals in the 2nd half to record a comprehensive 3-1 win. The 2nd game was against a strong Hampton park team. After a close 1st half, the boys played their best half of the day to put one past the Hampton Park keeper. In the final group match, the boys beat Minaret 3-1 to proceed to the final against Alkira.

 

In what was a high quality game of soccer for year 8 standard, the boys trailed 1-0 going into the last minutes of play. Suddenly, a turnover in midfield allowed Emre to play a ball through to Emmanuel on the right wing, catching the Alkira defence out of position. Emmanuel dribbled down the right side and into the penalty area before cutting a pass back to Efran who was unmarked. Efran then had the composure to take one touch and fire the ball into to the right side of the net. 30 seconds later, the ref blew his whistle and pointed to the penalty marker for a penalty shoot out to take place.

 

Despite missing our 2nd penalty, Will, Sishir, Marshall and Yaqoob all had ice in their veins as they calmly slotted the ball into the left and right corners of the goal. This was enough to lift the Pennant as Mark (our goal keeper) did a fantastic job to save two Alkira penalties. CESC were Division Champs!

 

The boys now move onto Regional competition on July 28th. Congratulations Boys!!

Rob Horwill - Coach

 

Year 9/10

Year 10 news 

As Term 2 draws to a close, we look back on everything that our Year 10s have achieved this semester with pride. It has been a busy and exciting start to their senior school career, with a large emphasis on each student’s future. Our Year 10s have successfully completed their work experience, their first lot of electives and have just sat their mid-year exams. They are also currently in the process of completing their Career Action Plans. We are very proud of the manner that our cohort has conducted themselves over the past two terms.

Key dates to remember

  • Monday 18th June – Semester 2 classes begin
  • Friday 22nd June – Multicultural Day
  • Wednesday 27th June – Year 10 Formal
  • Friday 29th June – Last day of Term 2
  • Monday 16th July – First day of Term 3
  • Tuesday 17th July – Shakespeare Day

Career action plans

Over the past two months, students have been working towards completing their Career Action Plans (CAPs) online and booking in interviews with our Careers Counsellors, Nancy Huez O’Rourke and Liz Hassell. The CAPs are designed to help young people to identify possible future careers based on their strengths and interests, as well as provide them with the skills that they need to manage their personal pathways in the future. It is important that all students have completed their Career Action Plan this term, as they will be attending Course Counselling early in Term 3 in the lead up to selecting their Year 11 pathways. Please encourage your child to complete their CAP if they haven’t already done so and ask them where their interests lie – they may surprise you!

 

Formal

On Wednesday 27th of June the Year 10s will be attending their long awaited Formal. The Home Group captains have been working hard over the past term to ensure that everyone has a fantastic evening and they have done an amazing job. There are over 100 students who will be attending, and it is shaping up to be a fantastic night. The formal begins at 7pm, where there will be a sit-down dinner to provide energy for all of the dancing to follow. There will also be a photographer on site to capture all of the moments that will make up this very special night for our students. We look forward to being able to share this night with our students and the opportunity to socialise in a different setting.

 

Theatre studies

On the evening of Wednesday 6th of June, 19 of our Year 10 students put on their performance of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Students made up the entire cast and crew and had been working intensively with their teacher, Mrs Grey, since Step Up at the end of 2017. The performance followed the complicated love story of four young Athenians who are subject to fates games. Overall the play was amusing, with students getting into character and showing off their creative flair. We were very impressed by our talented Theatre Studies class.

 

 

 

 

The Love and Sorrow Exhibition- 9A Excursion

 

Our focus in Humanities this term has been World War One.  On the 5th of June, we went on an excursion related to the experiences of the Victorian soldiers and nurses who were in active service at Gallipoli and on the Western Front. We went to the Melbourne Museum, where we visited the Love and Sorrow exhibition. The exhibition also featured stories and experiences of Victorian society during the war. It was a very meaningful and educational excursion as it allowed us to view the War from the perspectives of those who were involved, both at home and at war.

 

During our visit we each chose two of the many veterans the exhibit featured and followed their story through the maze-like confines of the exhibit. There were many artefacts and items in the displays from the time of WW1, which means our excursion had some very meaningful and relevant concepts displayed.

 

As we followed the war veteran’s stories, we learned some very interesting details about the war and its physical/mental effects on the soldiers and their families. We were deeply engaged in the experience and formed a bond with the veterans.  Some of our class became quite emotional.

After spending our very meaningful and interesting time at the Love and Sorrow exhibit, we were given 1 hour of free time to roam around the entire museum.

As a whole, our excursion was truly engaging and brought our classroom learning to life.  We were very grateful towards Ms Bond for organizing the excursion and Ms Mawal and Miss Pate for supervising us. It was a very good day and it certainly raised a few eyebrows.

Marvel The Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N - 9B Excursion

On the 24th of May, the 9B STEM class had the privilege of attending the Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N near Federation Square in the city. S.T.A.T.I.O.N is an acronym for Science Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network. Our students were able to train like an Avenger and become an official S.T.A.T.I.O.N. agent by delving into the science, history, engineering, genetics and technology behind our favourite super heroes. Students were able to explore an extensive range of Avengers operation equipment such as Captain America’s uniform and shield, Iron Man’s Armoury and the Hulkbuster suit, as well as Thor’s mighty hammer and Black Panther’s mask. The experience integrates large scale interactive screens and games that enabled us to experience a Bi-Frost simulation, a strength test vs the Marvel heroes, power Iron Man’s blasters and so much more.

 

Access Monash

Throughout Term 2 a group of year 9 students have been working on a project with Monash students called the Access Monash program. We were given the challenge of teaching other students about Tertiary education such as University, Apprenticeships and TAFE. Our plan, as of today, is to create a Careers Day event where students from Year 9 can come and talk to people in different lines of work. This event will showcase the importance of Tertiary education and the wide variety of pathways to follow. As of this point in time, we have created a survey to measure how much students know about Tertiary education, have begun to plan a poster to display and advertise the event as well as created a video to educate everyone on the pros and cons of Tertiary Education. With roles assigned, the workflow has been consistent, and we hope to have most of this event completed by the end of July.

SPP- Sports Pathway Program

 

TERM 2 UPDATE

Term 2 has been a great success for the 71 students in the Sports Pathway Program. The theory unit of Sports Nutrition has given students the information and the skills to identify foods that will help them better prepare for and recover from their sporting events. Students now have an understanding of which foods will give high quality fuel for energy and which foods they should be avoiding.

 

Students have also continued their hard work on improving strength and conditioning with Collingwood FC coach Luke Kitchen. There have been a number of students who have commented on how their increased fitness levels have led to stronger performances in their sporting competitions.

 

The year 10 class had the opportunity to visit the Victorian Institute of Sport at Albert Park. Students met professional athletes who took them on a tour of the facilities, spoke about training methods, nutrition and the life of a professional athlete. It was a great insight into the professional sporting field and all students had a fantastic day.

On The 18th of June the two year 9 classes visited Melbourne Storm facilities and AAMI Park. This was a fantastic opportunity to meet Storm coaches/players and have a tour of the world class sporting facility that is AAMI Park.

VCE calendar

Please be aware that the VCE SAC Calendar is live on compass. You are able to access this and see when your child has a SAC/event coming up.  Students need to be aware of their upcoming SACs so they are able to best prepare for them. In the lead up to their SACs it is vital that the students are at school attending their classes and speaking to their teachers and making the most of the time they have with their teachers.


Keeping up to date with coursework is becoming an issue for students. The 3 weekly progress reports are a good way to track how your child is performing.  If you are unable to access Compass please contact the school to receive your username and password.


Mid Year Exams

Congratulations to all those students who sat exams over the past week. It has been a huge week for everyone.

 

GAT Examination

On Wednesday 13th June all students studying a 3/4 subject sat the GAT (General Assessment Task).  Feedback from the supervisor was all positive, with regards to the behaviour of all students involved, so congratulations. However, some students arrived unprepared for the GAT and not at the requested time, which was a little disappointing.  To those students-please do not repeat this behaviour for your end of year exams.

School Clubs

Magic Club Update

Magic Club this term saw kids honing both their skills in the game and their social capabilities as a student. Not only were students making faster and more accurate plays, they were able to also display good sportsmanship more consistently such as the shaking of hands and allowing newer students to replay particular mistakes. Over the school holidays, a new set of cards will be released to which the students are looking forward to as well called M19.

 

Diversity Club

I am so very proud to run Diversity Club at CESC. Every Thursday we meet at lunchtime to hang out together in a safe and supportive environment. Diversity club is about giving every student the opportunity to be themselves and feel comfortable with their peers.

What do we do?

  • Mostly we sit together, eat snacks and chat! We answer questions from the anonymous question box and we watch clips, T.V episodes and films which celebrate diverse people (like Glee!)

Can anyone come?

  • Absolutely! Some students believe that you need to identify as LGBTQI to come to diversity club but we welcome all staff and students.

What is in store for diversity?

  • August 31st is Wear it Purple Day Australia. As a whole school we will be marking this event on Monday the 27th August. All staff and students are asked to wear purple on this day and bring a gold coin donation. A portion of the proceeds will go directly to the Wear It Purple organisation with the remaining money going towards an upcoming whole school event celebrating individuality, enterprise and both physical and mental health.  

The Wear it Purple message is simple but vital:

  • Everybody has the right to be proud of who they are.

What they stand for:

  • Every young person is unique, important and worthy of love.
  • No one should be subject to bullying, belittlement or invalidation.
  • We believe in a world in which every young person can thrive, irrelevant of sex, sexuality or gender identity.

SPP Sports Pathway Program

TERM 2 UPDATE

Term 2 has been a great success for the 71 students in the Sports Pathway Program. The theory unit of Sports Nutrition has given students the information and the skills to identify foods that will help them better prepare for and recover from their sporting events. Students now have an understanding of which foods will give high quality fuel for energy and which foods they should be avoiding.

 

Students have also continued their hard work on improving strength and conditioning with Collingwood FC coach Luke Kitchen. There have been a number of students who have commented on how their increased fitness levels have led to stronger performances in their sporting competitions.

 

The year 10 class had the opportunity to visit the Victorian Institute of Sport at Albert Park. Students met professional athletes who took them on a tour of the facilities, spoke about training methods, nutrition and the life of a professional athlete. It was a great insight into the professional sporting field and all students had a fantastic day.

On The 18th of June the two year 9 classes visited Melbourne Storm facilities and AAMI Park. This was a fantastic opportunity to meet Storm coaches/players and have a tour of the world class sporting facility that is AAMI Park.
