God our Father,
The qualities I see lived out so well in some people
Are a reflection of your own goodness,
And I know that I have much to learn from other people
Who reflect your image and likeness in different ways.
Inspire me to respect others fully as my equals,
Seeing and loving in them what you see and love in them.

St Norbert, pray for us.

From the Principal

Dear Parents, Guardians, Students, Staff and Friends of St Norbert College


I’m sure all present on Sunday evening, at our College Community Mass, would agree that it was a joy to share this special Eucharist in such a lovely, faith-filled and family-focussed setting. Father Peter, in his homily, encouraged us to be prepared for all good works, with our hearts in the right place. That when we do good works, good works from the heart, and when we do it together, amazing things happen.


As a member of the St Norbert College community, one is never surprised at the amazing things that unfold here. The sense of community, spirit and faith, and combined with the Norbertine presence of Father Peter, Abbot Noyens and Brother John, our Community Mass this year was another truly wonderful event. We thank Father Peter, Ms Kyd, Mrs Silva, Mr Beins, our choir, altar servers and readers for the many hours of preparation to make this Mass so joyful and to the Parent Committee and members of SNESA for assisting with the sausage sizzle that followed.


The undeniable spirit of our House system was on display for all to witness last Friday with the annual Interhouse Swimming Carnival. Numerous staff and students made comments that they had never seen such energy and excitement among students as they cheered for, encouraged, motivated and celebrated the participation of friends and peers alike in pursuit of House glory. Heartfelt congratulations to all involved in making this year’s carnival one to remember, especially Mr Price and the many staff who worked tirelessly in the preparation and organisation of the carnival. With the penguins of Prémontré the overall winners of the House shield congratulations must go to Mr McGrath and his team and to Mr Gherardi and Tongerlo House for taking out the House spirit trophy in a hotly contested competition. An extensive list of achievements and results are included later in this newsletter.


As we look to the future, Open Day is fast approaching and we look forward to hosting many new friends and guests to our College on the day. Please feel free to invite friends and family to enjoy a tour of our College and to meet many of our students. Further information about Open Day is included in this newsletter.


The beginning of Lent is a very special time on our liturgical calendar, marked with the celebration of Ash Wednesday. It is during this time that we are called to commit ourselves to be more Christ-like in all that we do. We are called to prayer, fasting and almsgiving, to examine our hearts and minds, actions that strengthen us spiritually. During our Ash Wednesday liturgies, we also acknowledged the 10-year anniversary of the National Apology to the Stolen Generation by the then-Prime Minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd. As a Catholic community, we at St Norbert College continue to work with the survivors of the stolen generation and their families towards truth, justice and healing.


In his Lenten message this year, Pope Francis highlighted the growing challenges of our times. Momentary pleasures mistaken for true happiness, dreams of monetary wealth and material possessions are, as Pope Francis describes, leading to hearts cold to those around us.


"Because of the increase of iniquity, the love of many will grow cold" (Matthew 24:12).


And in conclusion then, we are challenged, like Father Peter challenged us at our Community Mass – to be prepared for all good works, put our hearts in our works and together we can do amazing things; amazing things that will light the fire of love in all of us.

God Bless

Professor Anders Ericsson

In the previous newsletter, the concepts from Professor Anders Ericsson on how a particular type of extended practice leads to exceptional performance was introduced. The first question that should arise is why?


Ericsson notes that the ability to create, through the right sort of training and practice, “abilities that they would not otherwise possess by taking advantage of the incredible adaptability of the human brain and body”. To put this ‘gift’ to work in order to improve in an area of your choice, a fundamental new way of thinking about human potential, one that suggests we have far more power than we ever realised to take control of our life. Thus, for students (and for adults), learning becomes a way of creating abilities rather than of bringing people to the point where they can take advantage of their innate ones.


For all students to improve, irrespective of their current achievement, three simple ideas around deliberate practice must take hold:

  1. Potential is an expandable vessel, shaped by the various things we do throughout life.
  2. Learning isn’t a way of reaching one’s potential, but rather a way of developing it.
  3. Our challenge is to identify the best ways to improve performance in a given activity – this is why an expert teacher or coach has a vital role to play.

The key differences among different types of practice is the extent to which they harness the adaptability of the human brain and body. Changes in the brain occur in response to deliberate practice, and a learner gains expertise by improving mental processes. For all students, a foundation in literacy and numeracy is necessary for life beyond school, and this is linked to their achievements through either the NAPLAN or OLNA external assessments.

The Online Literacy and Numeracy Assessment (OLNA)

OLNA stands for the Online Literacy and Numeracy Assessment, and in order to demonstrate the required literacy and numeracy standards for the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE), some students are expected to sit this assessment. The School Curriculum and Standards Authority awards the WACE at the end of Year 12 to students who have met all the requirements.

A student may pre-qualify for the WACE literacy and numeracy requirement through their performance in the Year 9 NAPLAN test. As such, the College will inform you if your son or daughter is required to the sit the OLNA, which is held in March and September each year, starting in Year 10.


The OLNA is comprised of three components—Reading, Writing and Numeracy. Students are allowed 50 minutes for the Reading and Numeracy components and 60 minutes for the Writing. The table attached provides an overview of the OLNA components for 2018.

To prepare students for the types of questions they can expect, and to familiarise them with the online assessment platform, the College provides access to practice and example tests on a secure website. The link to the secure website for the practice and example tests is available on the Authority website at under:

Years 11 and 12 > Assessment > OLNA > Practice and Example Tests.


For students with a disability, the OLNA Disability Adjustment Guidelines will assist with the determination of the appropriate adjustments for equal access. Information regarding the disability adjustments is available on the Authority website under: Years 11 and 12 > Assessment > Disability Adjustment Guidelines.


A student who does not demonstrate the required literacy and numeracy standard by the time they exit senior secondary schooling can apply to the Authority to re-sit the OLNA at any age. If you wish to know more, please access the Authority’s website and go to: Years 11 and 12 > Assessment > OLNA. You will find more information, answers to frequently asked questions and a brief video. You can also direct enquiries to: [email protected].

Pastoral Care

Guide Your Children Toward Positive Fulfilment


Tips to improve your children’s sense of joy, hope, awe, purpose, and deep connection.


Have you thought about ways to help cultivate the character of your child? If you consider social and emotional learning skills as the engine that enables accomplishment, you might want to look at character as the steering wheel that gives kids a sense of direction.

"We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character — that is the goal of true education". Dr Martin Luther King Jr.


Might character be as worthy of our attention as academics, civic competencies, and artistic literacy — and perhaps be connected to all three?



These five vital signs can help us guide youths toward positive fulfilment. They have been put in the form of questions that you can present to your child or yourself.



How much do you experience both joy and satisfaction in your life? 

This is deceptively simple.  Many people agree that we are content when our lives are going reasonably well and when we are being of service to others — family, classmates, colleagues, the community, and even strangers. But we also need some joy in our lives — moments that light us up and bring us smiles. This kind of joy comes from celebrating positive events with people we cherish.



To what extent do you look ahead in your life with optimism, positive expectation, and anticipation of accomplishment? 

When youths are pessimistic, see little chance of reaching positive goals, and feel hopeless, we cannot expect to see their best efforts at learning or good behaviour. We must work with their strengths and teach them to set and reach small goals so they can build a hopeful sense of accomplishment.


3. AWE

How often do you experience a sense of wonder, amazement, and astonishment?

We need to lift our childrens’ horizons by helping them appreciate the wonder around them: the miracle of a rainbow, a sunrise, how our bodies function, and the amazing ingenuity and goodness some people display. Even when life is difficult, a sense of awe helps us keep going. It can shift our perspective in ways that allow our thoughts and feelings to soar. Experiencing awe and wonder must be more than an annual event for our youths (and for adults).



Can you point to things in your life that give you positive meaning and purpose?

Research tells us that when some youths are not able to see pathways to prosocial purposes, they shift to antisocial ones. Having a sense of purpose and meaning is linked with fulfilment and is a normal sign of health. Because its absence is unsettling to individuals, it is not surprising to see youths and older people choose a negative purpose over no purpose. Consider why some children actively seek the role of class clown or bully.



When do you have a sense that you are connected to something, or someone, bigger than yourself? 

Rachael Kessler made it clear in The Soul of Education that connecting to something greater than oneself is a desirable part of development, especially in adolescence. It fuels idealism, learning, adventure, leaving comfort zones, and other actions that give youths energy and seem to make them feel as if their capacity and potential are limitless. It also tides them over in times of difficulty.



All five of these areas — contentment/joy, hope, awe, meaning/purpose, and deep connection — are related to one another. Cultivating even one of these in youths can help advance the others when they are lacking. Our homes and schools need to be places of inspiration where social and emotional learning and character development are engaged intentionally and as often as academics.

The Week of the Penguin

Week 2 - The Week of the Penguin


On Friday 9 February we celebrated Prémontré Day. Prior to this though, Prémontré House decided to embrace ‘one and all’ into our celebrations for the Feast of Blessed Hugh of Fosse and again invite everyone to enjoy the ‘Week of the Penguin’. All Premontarians were open and willing to share this joy with staff and students from any House denomination to make the week fun for all. 


During the week at recess, there was a Dancing Penguin who ‘busted a move’ for a coin donation, with all funds raised going to Caritas. He/she certainly drew a crowd and they were entertained and enthralled by the energetic performance, and many enjoyed a small tasty treat for their generosity. 


At lunch on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday an absolute Penguin movie classic, ‘Surf’s Up’, was shown in the Br Pat Forum. All staff and students were again welcome to watch and eat some popcorn and lollies in the cool air conditioning. It was great to see so many people there having a relaxing and enjoyable time with friends.  


On Friday, the ‘March of the Penguins’ began after period three as Prémontré House gathered in St Joseph’s Church. Fr Peter with the support of Abbott Noyens and Br John, celebrated a wonderful liturgy with the focus on the life of Blessed Hugh of Fosse. The Prémontré Captain Destiny Perkins, along with the Vice-Captains Cyrus Tadena and Seymour Gumba, were supported by students Sanjita Ghimire, Charlie McCrostie, Shelley Ramano, Courtney McCrostie and Nicole Alconaba who all volunteered to, and then read, so wonderfully.


Prémontré then headed to the Fr Peter O'Reilly Centre for lunch to share a meal and eat a variety of pizzas and fruit platters. The inter-Homeroom Dodge Ball competition was again a heated battle with P1 ending up the victor in this close-fought event!


A special thanks to the Prémontré Captains who worked tirelessly throughout the week and to Elizabeth Skinner-Drakeford who helped out on many of those days.

Italian and Art

“Il Carnevale”

Tuesday 13 February was 'Carnevale'. This festivity is celebrated in Italy, Rio de Janiero and New Orleans and it marks the day before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.


It is typically celebrated with people getting dressed up in costumes and wearing masks, throwing streamers and confetti, eating fried sweet biscuits and generally having a fun day.


Most students in Italy go to school in their costumes and spend the morning celebrating at school, while on the afternoon of Carnevale, there is usually a parade of floats through the main streets of each town. One of the most famous places for this parade is Viareggio, near Pisa, in northern Italy.


The Year 7 Italian students spent their lesson decorating a mask for Carnevale and we used some streamers to create a little Carnevale atmosphere!


The 'Corsini' Collection – Art Gallery of WA

This Florentine private collection is being displayed at the Art Gallery from Saturday 24 February until 18 June.


On Opening day (Saturday) there will be a 'Florentine Festival' from 10am - 5pm, with many free events (some ticketed) for all ages and interests.


There will be dancing, live music, storytelling, a puppet theatre performance, wine tasting and pasta making. This is a great opportunity to blend the love of art with Italian culture. Enjoy!

Ms D Tersigni (Italian Teacher)


'My Sight Their Sight' - Dance Excursion


On Thursday 15 February, the Year 11 and 12 General Dance Class attended the 2018 Fringe Festival in Northbridge. The Fringe Festival is an event that showcases a variety of shows from different genres of performing arts, ranging from music to dancing and cabaret to comedy and acting.


Russell Square on James Street is brought to life as the 'Pleasure Gardens' with different events occurring throughout the night including live musical performances, a silent disco (that we very much enjoyed), concerts, and many food trucks. We were lucky enough to attend one of the physical theatre and circus performances called 'My Sight, Their Sight'. This piece was performed by Blindful, a company based in Melbourne and involved three performers; Abbie, Ryan, and Romain. Throughout the performance they challenge themselves by removing their sense of sight by blindfolding themselves, while performing a range of contemporary and acrobatic movements, tricks and balances. The performance incorporated props like a skateboard and bricks to manipulate sounds as an alternative to having their sight removed. 

During the performance Ryan, one of the dancers, was blindfolded while he performed an aerial acrobatics stunt on a single rope suspended from the ceiling. Watching it made us uneasy and frightened, it gave a surreal understanding of what life would be without sight. The performance was very enjoyable and built on our understanding of the use of biomechanics and our senses in dance.

Cultural Corner

Harmony Day

Harmony Day is a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home. At St Norbert College, we have over 44 different nationalities that make up our diverse community. We celebrate our diversity, from the traditional owners of this land to those who have travelled from countries all around the world to be here. In recognition of Harmony Day 2018, St Norbert College will be holding its fifth annual Harmony Day celebration. On this day we will be acknowledging and embracing our multicultural identity in a whole school celebration as well as upholding the sense of belonging and respect for everyone.


On Wednesday 21 March the College will host a number of activities that identify the various cultures of the world. The events include a liturgical service, an International Food Fair and a World Cultural Performance. Staff and students can purchase samples of food from various countries at their designated food stalls. Food tokens will be on sale a week before the event outside the Student Ministry office during the lunch break. Each sample serve will be $1. A recommendation of $5 per student will be sufficient.


A senior student and a staff member will share stories about their heritage, giving an insight to their cultural identity and their journey to Australia. Students are encouraged to wear their traditional dress to school on Harmony Day.


We are looking forward to receiving food contributions for the International Food Fair from the College Community. An email will be sent next week asking for your generous contributions.

YMCA Youth Parliament 2018

What is Youth Parliament?


The Western Australian YMCA Youth Parliament is an annual youth leadership forum that allows people aged 15-25 to talk about issues important to them in Parliament. Participants include people from all walks of life and from all corners of the State – anyone who has an opinion and wants to share it!


Participants become Youth Members of Parliament, charged with representing their peers from across Western Australia with some members having the opportunity to act in a leadership role as Premier, Leader of the Opposition, their Deputies as well as Ministers and Shadow Ministers. Youth Members work in Committees to write Youth Legislation, and then share that legislation with Members of the Western Australian Parliament. In essence, the Youth Parliament places young people in a forum where their opinions and concerns can be heard by the people who have the power to make change happen.


You don’t need to know anything about politics, governance or the parliament to be involved in the program, you just need to be passionate about youth issues – we will teach you the rest.

Please see the attached application pack.

If you have any further queries please don't hesitate to contact the Humanities Office on 9350 5433.

Humanities and Social Sciences

The Humanities and Social Sciences promotes a wise use of water


On Thursday 22 February, a group of Year 7 students had the opportunity to help the Water Corporation understand the future of our community in regard water usage. The 'Tap In' is the Water Corporation’s largest ever customer research program to help identify what is important to West Australian environment and society, including young people. The Water Corporation’s consumer and social research partner, Painted Dog, has conducted a research workshop with a group of Year 7 students at St Norbert College. This provides some insight into the role of market research as relevant to the Economics unit that students are currently studying.


Students participated in various individual and group activities, centred around the following questions:

·         What does water mean to you?

·         Have you ever experienced or seen any problems relating to water?

·         What would Perth look like if all these problems were fixed?


The session was audio recorded, allowing the Painted Dog facilitators to refer to the recording at a later time for analysis and reporting. The recording will be used for internal purposes only and will only be accessible to the project team at Painted Dog Research. All recordings will remain entirely confidential and anonymous. 


The students had a great time responding to the questions, receiving prizes and making some amazing posters. They all hope theirs will be used in the final report.

Coles Sports for Schools

At St Norbert College, we’re passionate about helping kids in our community lead a healthy lifestyle. That’s why we’re launching the Coles Sports for Schools program. During the Sports for Schools program, students' families will be able to collect Coles Sports for Schools vouchers for their school from Coles stores across Australia. When the program ends, schools can exchange those vouchers towards sporting equipment to encourage all kids to get healthy and active at school.

Spend and Collect - Every $10 spent at Coles during the program will earn a Coles Sports for Schools voucher. The more vouchers we collect, the more gear we could receive. The collection box has been placed in Student Services.
