From the Principal

There are a number of initiatives occurring at the College about which I am pleased to update our community:

 

RESTLESS CURIOSITY GRANTS

A recent (2017) initiative at the College sees staff invited to propose an innovative idea they are keen to explore that may benefit our students and / or College community, and that might attract one of the College’s Restless Curiosity grants. Grants were awarded to two projects in 2018:

 

Mr John Hunt’s innovation project was in relation to the benefits of Yoga for young people and, as a result of this grant, the College now:

  • has established a “Teaching Yoga to Younger Children Certificate” for Years 11 and 12 PEP students;
  • runs a weekly cocurricular activity for interested Years 3 to 6 students;
  • runs a weekly cocurricular activity for interested Years 7 to 10 students which includes opportunities for the students to assist John in running Yoga games for the Years 3 – 6 students.

Another 2018 Restless Curiosity grant saw Science teacher, Ms Catherine Donnelly, research possible STEM electives for students in Years 9 and 10, and I am pleased to report that, following our recent 2019 student selection processes, we have over 60 students (ie three STEM elective classes) choosing this in Years 9 and 10 in 2019.

 

It is terrific to see the outcomes of these projects being implemented in the life of our College, and I am very pleased to be now receiving submissions from staff for possible 2019 projects.

 

RUNWAY IS UP AND RUNNING!

The College’s new pop-up shop, designed by a Year 5 student in 2017 and built by our maintenance staff, has been launched this month in Wanju, our College’s café.

 

Currently, the shop features Year 10 students’ “$20 Boss” enterprises - a really broad range of wonderful items - and our Year 6 students’ eco-friendly cleaning products are also to be on sale from Runway. Going forward, the shop will display the goods and services of all our enterprising students across the year levels, becoming a daily feature of life at ASC. Please do pop into Runway and, should you wish to make a purchase, Yvette at the Wanju counter will be happy to assist

 

OUR CHINESE PUBLISHING PROJECT

I was pleased to pop in on a meeting this week of our new student publishing project (for which we do not yet have a name) which has emerged from our ongoing relationship with Professor Yong Zhao and our partnership with Beijing Academy, is progressing well, with a September 2019 launch in China on the cards. Further, we are keen to see ASC students’ contribution expanding beyond books and illustrations to short films and apps. Old Saint, Rory Dalitz (2017), is now on board with this project as illustration/animation advisor, and we thank Rory for sharing with us his expertise and passion.

 

TWO EXCITING NEW PARTNERSHIPS

The College is pleased to now be collaborating with Millennium Kids (MK) and Manning Men’s Shed (MMS) in relation to our College’s plans to establish a plastics recycling program. This project is particularly relevant to Goal 12 of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals which focuses on responsible consumption and production.

 

All Saints’ College will operate Precious Plastics machines on campus and we will be a pilot study (in 2019) for how a school can become a hub for school and community collaboration, sharing and developing resources. We will also run hackathons and other events with our students, focusing on reducing waste.

 

As part of this connectivity, we will collaborate with students in Sumbawa, Indonesia (west of Lombok) where MK has also established a partnership.

 

These are just some of the many exciting projects happening at the College with which students can become engaged, and I thank sincerely all those staff who are making these opportunities possible.

WHOLE SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPH ORDERS

Families who pre-ordered the 2018 Whole School Photograph are now able to collect their prints from Senior School Reception during the opening hours (8.00am – 5.00pm).

 

There are a limited number of prints still available for purchase, so click HERE to secure your copy now! This is truly a special memento, something your child will treasure in years to come.

 

The first All Saints’ College Whole School photograph was taken in 1993 when there were just 850 students from Years 1 to 12. This tradition has continued every five years since, with the College capturing a photographic record of the entire College population for posterity. Towards the end of last term, our staff and students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 were individually photographed at the College for the 2018 Whole School Photograph. 

 

For further information or any queries, please contact Miss Karyn Osmetti (Communications Manager) on 9313 9341 or [email protected]

DR MIKE NAHAN COMING TO WANJU

The College is pleased to welcome the Member for Riverton and Opposition Leader Dr Mike Nahan MLA to Wanju Café on Friday, 21 September.

 

Dr Nahan will be at the Café between 8.30am and 10.30am to talk to any parents or interested community members about issues of concern.


To book a 20 minute slot with Mr Nahan, please email him on [email protected] or call on 9457 1282

Millennium Kids Inc: I think! I Care! I do! 1000 Actions for the Planet

This is an invitation for ASC students between the ages of 10 and 18 to express interest in attending the 2018 Millennium Kids Conference MK Project 1000 on Sunday, 30 September, Monday, 1 October and Tuesday, 2 October, during the October holidays. The conference will empower students to further explore what sustainability means by reviewing the UN Sustainable Development Goals, thus leading change not only in the College but also in local and global communities. As part of this, students will meet social entrepreneurs who work in the sustainability space and co-design future projects.

 

All Saints’ College is keen to promote the Millennium Kids Conference, as it builds on the ideas and actions that have been progressing within Junior School classes, Sustainability Club and also through the LEO Club more widely. The Environment Captains across the College have been consistently promoting environmental change, and here we have an opportunity to further develop these projects.

 

We are keen to have a team of All Saints’ students who will, as part of the conference, collaborate and learn with young people from other schools to creatively design and innovate in the sustainability space. This is a truly exciting opportunity that All Saints’ College is keen to support. The cost of the conference for each student is $50.00 per day. Please see Ms Laura Strentz or Miss Kylie Chatto if your child is interested in attending this conference.

From the Dean of Junior School

THE JUNIOR SCHOOL CAR PARK

After a lot of feedback and thoughtful discussion, we are trialling a new way of using the Junior School car park that will hopefully reduce congestion and make traffic flow more easily. Ultimately, we want the Junior School car park to be as safe as possible and user-friendly for all pedestrians and motorists.

 

The key change will be a managed ‘Kiss n Drive’ zone at the end of each day, with an aim to keep a specified curbed section moving with the flow. As students exit classrooms and enter vehicles in the ‘Kiss n Drive’ zone, parents will, without delay, drive away and exit the campus, providing space for the next vehicle. Cones will indicate the sections which must be kept free until the end of the students’ day. Mr Joe Fabio (College Caretaker) will be guiding traffic and the Junior School duty teacher will focus on providing a duty of care for our students.

 

Click HERE to view a video made by our Year 6 Student Leaders, describing and providing further details for the new way of using the Junior School car park.

JUNIOR SCHOOL CONCERT: A DELICATE WEB OF LIFE

Junior School students took to the stage over Tuesday and Wednesday nights this week to perform their concert, A Delicate Web of Life.

 

The Junior School Concert focused on an optimistic view of our world with the performances representing their learning about the natural world and particularly the creatures within it

YEAR 6 EXHIBITION NIGHT

On Thursday, 6 September the Year 6 students, accompanied by their families, attended the Year 6 Exhibition Night.

 

Students put their years’ worth of study on display, showcasing their learning in Science, Etymology, their family’s migration story and their HASS inquiry.

 

The Year 6s were split into groups, that rotated through Building 8, where they marketed their alternative cleaning products with their advertisement videos to parents and family members and also performed a drama activity on migration, followed by a game to show each family’s cultural origin.

YEAR 1 FARMER INCURSION

Our Year 1 students enjoyed a visit from Narrogin farmer Ashley Wiese on Friday last week.

 

As part of their Porridge Project Inquiry, the students have been learning where food comes from and so Ashley spoke to them about the process of growing and processing oats. He also brought in some oat plants from the paddock, oat seeds, and a very large bag of porridge oats for the children to share.

 

Ashley is involved in the TeacherFX program, sponsored by Rabobank and the Central Queensland University, Sydney This program aims to increase the knowledge and confidence of STEM, digital technology and agriculture educators to allow them to incorporate food and fibre production into their teaching programs.

--------------------

INTERSCHOOL YEARS 4 - 6 SPELLING BEE

Six All Saints’ College students from Years 4 – 6 competed at the recent Interschool Spelling Bee at Guildford Grammar School.

 

They met with Mrs Kristen Zaurs (Year 4 teacher) each Wednesday morning throughout Term 3 in order to prepare for this competition.

 

Well done to the following students who competed on the day:

 

Year 4: Zaina Abou El-Alamein and Tejas Morisetty

 

Year 5: Ceicilia Limargana and Caitlin McLeod

 

Year 6: Charlotte Clinckers and Benjamin Tang

 

 

Senior School

TRAVELLING TO AND FROM THE COLLEGE

When in uniform our students become ambassadors for All Saints’, especially when wearing our crest beyond the College grounds. We often receive positive feedback from members of the public regarding the way our students interact with people on their way to and from the College. We are always pleased to hear of occasions in which our students publicly live out our shared values and are proud of the way in which they continue to represent the College in our community.

While on public transport our students are particularly on display and, most often, represent the College in a way we would hope. However, we recently received communication that some students are not being as considerate of fellow travellers as they need to be.

 

Students from the College have been seen eating on buses and trains and leaving a mess behind which impacts on other users of public transport. There has also been a report of students who have not offered their seat on the train to members of the wider community who have a greater need to sit and who have used the allocated seating for elder members or those with disabilities.

As a community, it is important we are proactive in our care of others and we help each other to show the consideration we have come to expect from All Saints’ College students.

 

I ask parents to please check with their children to ensure they understand how they need to behave on public transport, both as representatives of the College and to be their best selves, whilst travelling with others.

 

I also ask our students, where appropriate, to encourage each other to look to the needs of those around them while travelling. If your friend, or another All Saints’ student, has a seat and does not notice the need of another passenger who is standing, I ask that you encourage each other to stand and offer that seat, particularly when students are using priority seating.

 

As a community, All Saints’ College has a very strong reputation as a school that acts with consideration and kindness. Please make sure that you continue this tradition in the way you show consideration and care while travelling to and from the College.

BATTLE OF THE CHOIRS

This year's Battle of the Choirs competition on was a great success. With the theme this year of 'Protest Songs', House choirs and our very own staff choir put on a tremendous array of talent and musical skill.

 

Durack and Stirling House came out on top placing equal first position, while Murdoch House came in at third place.

 

Well done to everyone who competed on the day!

STUDENT LEADERSHIP CAMP

Our 2019 Student Leaders last week took part in their three-day Student Leadership Camp

beginning with a training session run by owner of Adventure Out Australia, Terry Hewett OAM at the College.

 

Terry has been working with the College and our students for more than 25 years, helping them to develop a sense of unity and sharpen their leadership skills.

 

Students also travelled down south to hike part of the Cape to Cape track.

--------------------

COLLEGE MUSIC CONCERT

The annual College Music Concert on Wednesday, 5 September was another spectacular showcase of the talent in our community.

 

Congratulations to our Senior School musicians and singers, and Music staff and tutors, who took part in this wonderful event.

--------------------

YEAR 10 HASS EXPEDITIONS

Throughout Term 3, our Year 10 students have been participating in a series of expeditions covering the four Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) disciplines: Civics, Economics & Business, Geography, and History.

 

The Economics excursions have involved a morning visit to companies in the city, including South32 and the Compass Group (next week they will visit BHP), where students learn about their operations, community service programs, employment opportunities and what they look for in prospective employees.

 

The remainder of the day is spent with The Salvation Army, learning about the numerous programs they run and where they operate in Perth city.

 

The student groups start in Wellington Square where The Salvation Army provide morning and evening meals, then move to Bridge House to gain an insight into the organisation’s program that provides a sobering up and detoxification service for those suffering from alcohol and substance abuse. Finally, students visit The Salvation Army’s homelessness facility called, The Beacon, where people are provided with up to three months of accommodation before transitioning back into the community.

 

During these excursions, students were able to gain an appreciation of the gap in wealth that exists in society today and the importance of trying to narrow this gap by individuals, companies, the government and groups like The Salvation Army.

YEAR 11 AND 12 EXAMINATIONS

If your child has a formal diagnosis of a disability or learning difficulty and you have any questions about the special arrangements they have been granted in the upcoming examination period, please email Mrs Jeanette Sealy (Learning Support Coordinator) on [email protected]

YEAR 11 MEDIA PODCASTS

This term, our Year 11 Media class has been experimenting with a new type of assessment focusing on podcasts.

 

Either individually or in pairs, we began with brainstorming some topics that we could talk about and how we could get people interested in listening to our podcasts.

 

Our new Media teacher (and former BBC Radio host) Mr Stefan Hamilton helped us understand the basics of podcasting, interviewing and how to create that all important “hook” that keeps people listening.

 

Throughout the production process, we were fortunate to welcome 6PR Radio host Carmen Braidwood into our class once a week. Carmen gave us advice on effective podcasting, how to generate ideas, and techniques needed to host a good conversation with the people we were interviewing.

 

With the students working at different stages and paces, we started to get some traction and begin our recording process. Whether we were working individually or in pairs a wide range of topics were covered from conspiracy theories, the VR experience and Bond the Wellbeing Dog at ASC to visiting the Eiffel Tower, Australia’s film and music industry in the 1980s – 90s, and a small business feud in the Fremantle Markets. There was something new and unique for all types of listeners to enjoy.

 

Being a Media class and having that non-visual aspect was challenging at first, but it taught us valuable lessons about the audio side of a production – something we can all use in future assessments.

Service Learning

 

It has been another busy week full of Service activities and events as we continue to serve our local community and strive towards achieving the College’s vision of making a positive difference in our world.

 

GEN-CONNECT

Each Monday afternoon for the past six weeks, a group of students have been connecting with residents from Amana Living through the College’s new Gen-Connect program.

 

Amana Living residents have been visiting the College and working with our students to learn about the rapidly growing and changing world of technology. In small teams, the students have worked one-on-one with residents to support them in using their electronic devices, such as phones, laptops and tablets.

 

On Monday, 3 September All Saints’ College hosted a Thank you Afternoon Tea where they shared cups of tea and scones with the Amana Living members involved in the program. Gen-Connect was a wonderful success, with both students and residents learning many new skills.

 

REBOUND WA

Recently the All Saints’ College community ran a variety of fundraising events to support our partner, Rebound WA, a charitable association assisting Western Australian people with physical disabilities to rebound from adversity.

 

Senior School Murdoch House ran a tremendously popular Pizza Fundraiser during Week 7 which raised $719.90 for Rebound WA.

Additionally, on Thursday, 6 September a group of staff and students ran individual fundraising campaigns to support their involvement in the ‘Wheelchair for a Day’ competition and a wheelchair Basketball Staff vs Students match. The game was hotly contested with a cheering crowd and the official score landing at six-all (however a controversial three-pointer from Mr Beath may have given staff the win).

 

The three Year 12 students who participated in the ‘Wheelchair for a Day’ had an excellent, empathy building experience which raised awareness of challenges people in wheelchairs face on a daily basis.

 

These combined efforts raised over $1 000 for Rebound WA.

Propeller Enterprises

RUNWAY

Our pop-up shop, Runway, which was designed by a Year 5 student in 2017 and built by our maintenance staff, has been launched this month in Wanju Café!

 

Currently, the shop features Years 10 and 11 students’ “$20 Boss” enterprises, and the Year 6 students’ cleaning products are set to be on sale shortly.

 

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 Enterprises, Ms Laura Strentz: [email protected]


$20 BOSS PROJECT
This week the $20 Boss students will receive their first profits from their sales and will have the first accounting session to track the sales of each business.

Learning Technologies

ClassPolicy

Without doubt the biggest news this week in ICT at the College has been our rollout of a new software called ClassPolicy.

With this tool teachers are able to remotely direct students to websites, open apps, plus restrict access to websites and apps. Some teachers have reported already that students have been less tempted to be distracted and have been thankful for the focus on one application (e.g. OneNote) at a time whilst completing their work.

Restarting your laptop

It is really important that you give your laptop a regular restart – we run into problems when updates are not applied because our laptops have not been restarted for a LONG time.

A good thing to do is a “full” shutdown which you do by holding SHIFT when selecting “Shut Down”. Your laptop will be happier and run faster if you restart regularly.

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 Chrome or Edge – I use both. Here is how you change your default browser.

 

Tags in Cocurricular

Seeing only the activities you want to see in the list of cocurricular activities is handy – use the tags at the top of the page to see only Mathematics activities or just PEP (for example)

 

Teams Immersive reader

All of the features of immersive reader available in OneNote and Word are now available in the conversations in Teams.

Microsoft Store

A better way to download and access apps for your laptop than software centre is the Microsoft Store. The app is on all laptops, just search for “Store”. See here for more details.

 

Word dot points shortcut

 

OneNote has a very useful keyboard shortcut for bullet points (Ctrl+.) and numbering (Ctrl+/)…

But Word doesn’t. We can, however, create our own keyboard shortcuts in Word.

 

To create keyboard shortcuts for bullet points go to file and then options.

 

Go into the “Customize Ribbon” tab and press the “customize” button next to keyboard shortcuts.

 

 

Select the home tab on the left and scroll down to “Bullets Gallery” on the right. Then select the textbox below “Press new shortcut key: ” and press the Ctrl+. (or what you want the shortcut to be) and then click “assign”

 

Do the same for numbering gallery but press Ctrl+/ (or the shortcut you want). Remember to press “assign”

 

Then you can close the options window and you now have keyboard shortcuts for bullet points and numbering lists. (Thanks to Joel Walkemeyer (Year 12) for this tip!)

OLD SAINT REUNIONS

Old Saint Reunions are held every five years for our former students to reconnect in a social and enjoyable setting. Most recently the Class of 1993 enjoyed their 25 Year Reunion on Friday, 31 August 2018 at the Young George, East Fremantle. It was particularly wonderful to see Brook Dodd (née Lindquist) who flew over from Seattle, especially for the event!

 

We are grateful to the many former and current staff members who attend the Old Saint Reunions, as it is always such a highlight for the former students to reunite with them after many years. Thank you to former staff members, Mr Anthony Radich and Mrs Robin van Dongen for attending the 25 Year Reunion.

ARE YOU IN THE CLASS OF 1988? 

The final reunion for 2018 will be held on Friday, 14 September 2018 for the Class of 1988! If you haven’t yet purchased your ticket, please visit: http://oldsaints.ascollege.wa.edu.au/30YearReunion1988
