Prayer and Reflection

Prayer

We thank you Lord, for this term.

For the challenges, the successes,

and the mistakes from which we have learnt.

Be with us as we spend our time with family and friends.

Give us strength and courage to do what is right:

to be witnesses of our faith.

Help us to be a practical Christian these holidays,

to give time and effort to help others,

to be peacemakers in our family.

Keep us safe in our activities;

give us good rest and good fun.

Bring us back refreshed and ready for a new term.

We thank you for our classmates, teachers, parents

and a community that cares for us.

May we always be conscious of you in our lives.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. 

Amen.

Our Lady of the Rosary. Pray for us.

St Dominic. Pray for us.

Blessed Edmund Rice. Pray for us.

 

The end of this term has been one of the most liturgically rich and busy this year.  During Week 8, McCarthy was privileged to host the Year of Youth Cross which has been travelling around the schools in the Armidale Diocese. RE classes across Years 7 to 10 spent some time with the cross, reflecting on it's symbolism and meaning for youth in the Armidale Diocese. In a prayerful reflective celebration, students wrote individual prayers which they placed at the foot of the Cross.

During Week 9, seventy Year 12 students gathered for a voluntary Twilight Retreat which focussed on Mark’s Gospel account of Jesus getting into the boat with his disciples and calming the storm. During the retreat the students reflected on their years together at McCarthy; they wrote thank you cards which they then presented to their parents and caregivers at their Thanksgiving Mass the following evening.

Father Chris made special mention of the fact that as a Catholic community we come to the Church to thank God for all he has done in and for our students. On behalf of the students I would like to express grateful appreciation to Father Chris for celebrating the Mass for the McCarthy community. 

 

Condolences

Our thoughts and prayers are with William Roworth and his family following the passing of his grandfather and to Isobelle Sullivan and her family following the passing of her grandmother.

Mrs Cate Allen - Mission and Spiritual Formation Coordinator

Mr Burton and his team will now allocate the funds to needy families in the Tamworth and New England district. Special commendation to the McCarthy Catholic College Environmental Council for their hard work and promotion of the annual event.

 

Jack Cutcliffe Memorial Shield Game

A wonderful afternoon of rugby was held at Farrer Agricultural High School last Wednesday to commemorate the passing of Jack Cutcliffe last year. Three games were played with our girls' team going down narrowly to Calrossy, our Open Boys winning in the dying minutes over Farrer and concluded with the Farrer First XV convincing winners over Calrossy. I publicly commend the positive spirit in which all the games were played and offer deep appreciation to Mr Kenniff, Mr Williams and Mr Mitchell for their organisational work behind the scenes. Similarly, it is of significant note that the Farrer community offered such generous use of their facilities on the day. It was offered humbly and in the true spirit of comradeship that exists in rugby and country communities. On behalf of the hundreds of spectators and family members who were in attendance, I deeply thank you. Jack’s spirit lives on in great community events like this!

 

Oztag State Champions

Congratulations to the McCarthy Catholic College Year 9/10 Oztag team who went one step further this year to claim the 2018 NSW Oztag championship after begin runners-up in 2017. The team comprised  Holly Bynge, Chloe Shanley, Jada Taylor, Madison Roach, Macy Gillies, Phoebe Porter, Sophie Corbett, Georgia Horniman, Sienna O'Mally, Abbey Ryan and Daisy George. Special thanks to Mrs Tanya Laird for her expertise as coach and Mr Wayne Northey for his support in driving the bus and supporting the team. Well done!

 

Catholic Schools Celebrate

We look forward to a wonderful night of music, dance and high energy performance tonight as the biannual Catholic School Celebrate launches at the TRECC at 7:00pm tonight. A number of McCarthy students will either perform as individuals or as part of the band. Well done to all involved and thanks to Mrs Lisa Lane (in her absence) and Mrs Donna Swan for their hard work in preparing our students to perform.

 

Year 12

A fitting farewell was offered at Assembly yesterday for our Year 12 students as they officially concluded classes prior to the HSC Examinations. While this particular assembly is always tinged with some sadness, the central theme of deep affection for their time here was readily apparent in all of the speeches and presentations. As is the practice since 2015, the Year 12 students award the Mother Teresa Award for Significant Contribution by a staff member to the growth and development of the year group over the last six years to a member of staff. The students decided this year to award it to Mr Mick Larkin.

 

Staffing

We wish Mrs Cheryl Gulliford all the best as she takes an extended period of long service for the full duration of Term 4 this year and all of first term 2019. Cheryl’s commitment and dedication to Library Services and as a talented senior English teacher will be sorely missed in that time.

Similarly, we will be welcoming new Music teacher - Mr Paul McNeill after the holiday period so we thank Mrs Maria Creigh for her busy contribution over the past 6 weeks in supporting the teaching of Music and RE.

We also wish Mrs Jolene Faint good luck as she embarks on the final stages of her teaching practicum for five weeks next term.

And Mrs Natalie Deacon takes maternity leave next term and into 2019 as she prepares for the arrival of her third child. We wish her and her family great joy as they await a new family member.

Finally we extend best wishes to Miss Rebecca Hannan who gets married in the September break. We trust that her special day is filled with love and fine weather!

I acknowledge the outstanding contribution from coordinators Mr Eric Elsley and Mr Brendan Moran along with teachers Mrs Oriane Monet and Mr Shaun Nichols. I especially thank the following Toastmasters who assisted during the course: Rob Philp, Craig Tilse, Elizabeth Hingston, John Taylor, Gerard O'Connor, Lia Mahony, John Hyde and Bhavin Patel.

The winner of the Judy Woodgate Memorial Shield for 2018 is Abigail Kelly.

 

End of Term

Classes conclude for Term 3 at 3:00pm on Friday 28 September. We will start up again for Term 4 on Monday 15 October at 8:45am. Please enjoy a wonderful break with your families and if you are travelling I trust that everyone returns to Tamworth safe.

Mr Geoff McManus - Principal

 

Assistant Principal - Mrs Sparke

Hundreds (literally) of applications for the many early admission schemes are now being processed by Mrs Barrett and myself.  Please check your submissions carefully to ensure they are complete. 

 

These last weeks at school are an important time of practice, consolidation and teamwork. Ultimately, the HSC mark for each individual can be raised by a strong 'team' performance. The work you are doing now, and up to the exams, is vital for maximising potential marks. Factors such as motivation, application, organisation and balance are key.

 

This week Year 8 students selected options for their 2019 elective choices. The online selection is an innovative feature of the new timetable package being used at the College.  Please be aware that subjects on the list may not run if there are insufficient numbers. Whilst every effort will be made to accommodate your choices you should be prepared to undertake study in any of the subjects you have listed. Students will learn which electives they have received when they return in 2019.

Farewell Year 12

“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” Dr Seuss

 

Spring is a season that brings mixed emotions – for those who suffer from hay fever it is a torturous time of the year while for those who loathe the cold the promise of summer’s warmth is a godsend. For me it is always about growth – I gain great pleasure from watching my Chinese Elms glisten with new leaves as the old leaves decay and nourish the soil beneath the tree – an endless cycle of growth. And so too do I feel this way at school, at this time of year as our Year 12 students prepare to voyage off into the great blue yonder. The child who came to the College in 2013 leaves us now an adult.

And what sort of adult will that be?

One of the core aims has been to surround the young people of this school with men and women of substance. To provide role models that will help them build lives that are meaningful and fulfilling. A big ask of teachers and certainly a tough gig for anyone to live up to but as Coach Taylor (from my favourite series Friday Night Lights) reminds us, it is all in the “try”.

 

Last Wednesday evening saw the inaugural Jack Cutcliffe Shield contested with a wonderful crowd, competitive rugby and plenty of goodwill – all because Mr Kenniff had a vision and worked hard to see it come to fruition. And fortunately, this is the norm and not the exception at the College:

  • On Monday evening Mrs Allen led a beautiful reflective retreat for Year 12 who were served dinner by a group of teachers who then proceeded to clean up after the meal. An inspiring gesture of servant leadership.
  • This then culminated in the Year 12 Thanksgiving Mass the following evening; again expertly organised by Mrs Allen. A choir of teachers, aided by two young men from Year 11, sung their hearts out under the leadership of virtuoso duo, Mr Godden and Ms Harvey.
  • The recent Walkathon was a marvellous expression of the students’ preparedness to get in and support a worthy cause, no doubt something they have learned from both home and school.    
  • Friday night rugby came to a successful conclusion with four teams in the grand finals – Mr Chittick (supported by Year 12 student, Doughal O’Reilly), Mr Williams and Mr Mitchell have done a wonderful job this season, surviving the chilly Friday night evenings and often not getting home until 8 or 9 o’clock of an evening after a day’s work.
  • Our Open Girls' Hockey team were successful in their Grand Final as was a Year 7 Netball team. Girls Oztag and Hockey have won their state finals – a tremendous testament to those staff who took them safely across the state, giving them opportunities to achieve at the highest level – Mr Denton, Mr McKenzie, Miss Hannan, Mr Mitchell, Mrs Laird and Mr Northey. All of them spent several nights away from home and family to give the students such rich experiences.
  • Year 10 went on a trip to the snow in the first week of term led by Mrs O’Neill and a team of teachers. 
  • Year 12 teachers ran revision lessons in the Term 2 holidays and are currently organising similar sessions for the next holidays as students prepare for the HSC Exams.
  • And teachers took a group of students on an overseas tour to Europe at the end of Term 1.

 

And I am sure there are many things that I have forgotten as I write, nevertheless the list indicates how much our staff do outside of the classroom to provide opportunities for the young people of this College. Opportunities designed to help them explore their potential, stretch their limits and discover who they are.

One of the most profound lessons I hope the Year 12 take from their time at the College is the importance of living a life in service to others. A beautiful line from Pope Francis echoes this sentiment when he said: “Life grows by being given away, and it weakens in isolation and comfort.”

And as I watch these young men and women leave I am filled with pride at what they have achieved and, more importantly, what they will contribute to future communities. Not only are they capable but they are generous, thoughtful, willing to be involved and eager to make the world a better place. They have supported each other through challenging times and striven to create a welcoming environment for younger students.

And so as Term 3 draws to a close there is little left for me to say except go with our best wishes, prayers and love.                          

   

The following is a prayer that the Irish would say as they left the security of what they knew for the unknown, dangerous, yet hopeful shores of Australia. And so as Year 12 leave the sanctuary and safety of school I pray:

O Lord, be thou

Their light and guide.

Make straight the path.

Give your shelter

And your comfort unto them.

Harbour them in this,

Their present journey,

As in their larger one

That begins and ends in you.

Be ever at their side,

Till homewards they come.

Amen.

Mr Mick Larkin - Assistant Principal

Teaching and Learning

Year 12

My best wishes to Year 12 students in preparation for their ‘grand final’. There is still 50% assessment left in order to achieve the Higher School Certificate credential and I am sure they will use this time wisely. I hope students take with them the skills to be good learners; knowing how to learn will put them in good stead now and in the future.

 

Year 11

Year 11 Examinations have been running smoothly and students have been preparing themselves well. It is vitally important, when making decisions about subjects and patterns of study for the HSC course, that students reflect on their results and before making decisions, they should meet to discuss their progress and plans with their teachers and the Careers Advisor.

 

On 31 October, Year 11 students will have Parent/Teacher Interviews. This will be held in the Library from 4:00pm - 6:30pm and I urge all parents and students to attend.

 

Reports

Years 7-10 Interim Reports have been emailed and these present an ideal opportunity to take the time to pause and reflect on students' level of application, cooperation and organisational skills such as being punctual and completing bookwork. These are the basics of good student self management and I encourage all students to make adjustments where needed. Many of our students are encouraged  to keep up the pleasing level of effort and application.

 

The school holidays are a great time to restock pencil cases, freshen up books and make some study notes in order to prepare for the Yearly Examinations in Term 4.

Mrs Raelene Maxworthy - Teaching and Learning Coordinator

 

Music

This week, our Year 12 Music students have completed the practical component of their HSC exams. Congratulations to them, and thank you to everybody who was involved in accompanying the students.

 

Tonight is Catholic Schools Celebrate at TRECC. The McCarthy College Band will be performing before the show in the foyer at 6:00pm. In the performance we have three acts, consisting of Tom Rindo, Sam Cohen, Montana Cooper- Mason, Logan Hoswell and Sam Halcroft. Good luck to these students.

 

Careers News

By now I have spoken to the current Year 12 students for the last time, organised the last guest speakers to address them and handed out the last booklets.

 

Ongoing Information

Now it is a matter for students to keep themselves updated on the never ending flow of information on dates, courses, updates, changes, applications, scholarships, jobs and much more. These will be posted and available to students through the HSC Careers Classroom.

 

Important Deadline

The first major deadline is this week.  Friday 28 September is the due date for on-time applications to UAC and QTAC, SRS and equity scholarship applications. 

 

Students have been urged not to leave these until the last minute as often applications take longer than anticipated, there can be IT difficulties and these deadlines cannot be changed.

 

Jobs

Details of many jobs for 2019, both full-time apprenticeships and traineeships, as well as gap year jobs, have been made available as well as advice on applications, cover letters and resumes.

 

Contact details

I wish Year 12 students all the best in their exams and with the choices and decisions they will be making. 

I can be contacted via the College or email in the next few months [email protected] to provide any information, advice or suggestions to both parents and students.

Year 9/10 Girls Oztag State Champions

On Tuesday 11 September, the Year 7/8 and Year 9/10 Oztag team travelled down to Sydney for the Champion of Champion Oztag Championships. After winning the North-West final last month in Tamworth, the girls were keen to test themselves against the best schools from around the State. The Year 7/8 teams girls were very competitive throughout the tournament. They lost some close games, yet scored a comprehensive 5-1 win against Sylvania High School. They qualified for the quarterfinals and put in a great effort against St Mary's College of Wollongong before going down. All the Year 7/8 girls gave their best and will be keen to return next year.

After losing the final last year in extra time, the Year 9/10 girls were determined to go one-step further. They faced some tough opposition including a first up win of 2-1 against Engadine High School. As the tournament progressed, the girls stepped up a gear, and their great skill, fitness and teamwork stood out. A gritty 3-1 semi-final win against Peakhurst saw the girls progress through to the grand final, a rematch from last year against Erina High School. In a thrilling game; the scores were tied 2-2 early in the second half before some individual brilliance from Jada Taylor broke the deadlock and saw the girls come home strongly. Well done to each player who played really well throughout the tournament. Congratulations to Mrs Tanya Laird on her great coaching and Jada Taylor who was awarded player of the final. To be awarded the trophy as State Champions is a huge achievement from the Year 9/10 girls. Thank you to Mr Wayne Northey for driving the bus to the grounds at Marco Reserve Pananiaa and helping with supervision, drinks and photography.

Year 9/10 Girls: Holly Bynge, Chloe Shanley, Jada Taylor, Madison Roach, Macy Gillies, Phoebe Porter, Sophie Corbett, Georgia Horniman, Sienna O'Mally, Abbegale Ryan and Daisy George.

Year 7/8 Girls: Georgia Sheppard, Breanna Luckey, Claudia Cartan, Ella Mitchell, Tomi Galvin, Mia Kennedy, Monique Corbett, Caitlin Downey, Georgia Simm, Erin Hansen, Amelia Easton and Chloe Haworth.

Congratulations to Jada Taylor, Georgia Horniman, Phoebe Porter, Holly Bynge and Abbegale Ryan who were selected in the girls' Years 9/10 Oztag NSW team following the carnival.

Mr Brad Mitchell

 

NSWCCC Athletics

The following students represented the Armidale Diocese at the NSWCCC Athletics Carnival at Homebush on Friday 21 September: Benjamin Chick, Wunda Jaffer-Williams, Benjamin Nelson, Maxwell Smith, Nicholas Taggart, Melanie Young and Georgia Simm.

Congratulations to Georgia Simm who won a gold medal in the 14 years 800 metres and a bronze medal in the 1500 metres, and to Benjamin Nelson who won a bronze in the 15 years 400m.

Thank you to Mr Damian Kenniff who was team manager for the Diocese.

Georgia Simm will represent Australia as part of the Sports Travel Australia Cross-Country team in the USA later this week at four high school cross-country invitational meets. We wish her well.

 

 

Hockey

The grand finals of the Tamworth Secondary Girls’ Hockey Competition were held on Monday 17 September.

In the first division grand final, the McCarthy One team took an early lead through a Callie Michell goal from a short corner. Calrossy One equalised shortly after. The score remained at 1-1 until Abby Wakely scored with three minutes remaining to secure a 2-1 victory.

McCarthy One: Claire Annis-Brown, Jessica Clarke, Ella Constable, Hollie Constable, Anneliese Frear, Maeve Galvin, Millah Green, Holly Littlejohns, Callie Michell, Billie Mitchell, Ella Mitchell, Marley Pitt, Abby Wakely and Amber Witney.

In the Division 3 grand final, McCarthy Blue faced Calrossy Green following hard-fought victories in the minor semi and preliminary final. Despite McCarthy’s best efforts, Calrossy Green ran out winners 2-0.

 

McCarthy’s third team, McCarthy Gold finished the regular season second in Division 2, before tight losses in the major semi and preliminary final.

Claudia Rodda was named Best and Fairest in Division 2 and Georgia Simm, was Best and Fairest in Division 3.

Thanks to all who contributed throughout the season, especially the coaches, Mrs Constable, Mr Rodda and Mr Davy, our regular umpires Callie Michell and Nick O’Connor, and our goalkeepers, Maeve Galvin, Millah Green, Ella Mitchell and Abby Wakely.

Mr Geoff Denton

 

Netball

McCarthy was well represented this year in netball, fielding teams from Years 7 - 10. Some teams played or umpired in the local carnivals displaying great sportsmanship and fair play. The Year 8 team made it to the preliminary finals in the Year 7-8 B Division whilst our Year 7 team made it to the finals in the Year 7/8 C Division. This newly formed team came together as a united and uniform team with some girls not playing before, under the coaching expertise of Patrice McMullen. The girls won convincingly 42-26 in the grand final against South Bowlo. Congratulations to Lucy McMullen, Abigail Taggart, Georgie Hawthorne, Elissa Lane, Aleisha Young, Sophia Hardy, Hallie Berton, Savannah Barber, Amelia Easton, Sian Austin and Annabel Kelly.

Congratulations to Mrs Jones who was part of the St Edwards team winning the A grade final.

Lastly, thank you to parents and friends assisting and coaching the teams. The training, scoring, coaching and help at the carnivals is a big commitment and  very much appreciated by the McCarthy netballers.

Europe 2020

Europe 2020 Information Evening

A preliminary information evening regarding the McCarthy Europe excursion in April 2020 will be held at McCarthy on Thursday 18 October from 6:00pm - 7:00pm for interested parents and students. This will explain what is planned, outline details of the trip, costs, what is involved and much more. This will be beneficial to students who are studying History, Art, Languages and Religion but is not restricted to those studying these subjects. Any student who has an interest in other cultures, seeing how our world has evolved and experiencing what Australian soldiers in World War I went through will gain much from the trip.  Just ask students who have gone in recent years!

Jackie from Academy Travel in Sydney will be there to answer questions on the night and to explain the next step in the process. There is no obligation to proceed if you come along and decide not to go ahead and participate in the tour.  It is an initial information meeting only.

By the end of Term 4, we will know if we have the numbers needed for the tour to proceed and go ahead.  

If you want to know more, please come along. If you have any questions, please email me at:  [email protected]
