Principal's Report

From the Principal

Welcome to iNewsletter!

Welcome to a new school year - I hope that all of our College community experienced a safe and enjoyable holiday period and took full advantage of the wonderful opportunity to reconnect with family and friends.

 

We commence the year with a ‘revamped’ College Newsletter, in both style and appearance. I hope that you like the change!

 

We are delighted to welcome back all of our students for a successful and exciting 2018, and offer a special welcome to the 297 Year 7 students and their families. One of our College values is Care and Compassion and I am confident that our current students will welcome our new students in such a fashion, make them feel welcome and help them to make friends quickly.

 

Speaking in assemblies throughout this and last week, I took the opportunity to remind our students of how lucky we are to be at such a great place of learning and how we should look for every opportunity – individually and collectively, to improve our practices, our organisation, our readiness to learn and ensure each and every student is both equipped to and committed to improving.

 

Most importantly, our classes settled very well this week – our first full week of scheduled classes, and it was my pleasure to witness classrooms full of curiosity and purposeful teaching and learning.

School Performance 2017

Our VCE results at the conclusion of 2017 were outstanding.


A sincere congratulations is extended to the ‘Class of 2017’ for their efforts and achievements.

 

Our mean VCE study score was 32. Just over 46% of our students received an ATAR over 80. 25 % of our students achieved an ATAR over 90.  Indeed, eight of our students achieved an ATAR of 97 or higher. 

 

This continues to be a strong endorsement of the direction we are taking to improve student learning outcomes at our College, and a credit to students and teachers alike.

 

Our Dux of the College, Sao Yang Hew gained an ATAR of 99.3 – an outstanding achievement!
Two of our students achieved a study score of 50 – Julia Tan in Physics and Kelly Yuan in Chinese First Language

 

We are extremely proud of the achievements of our students and the dedication of our teachers in supporting them throughout their time at East Doncaster. Success at Year 12 is not achieved in just one year of effort. It is the culmination of students building their skills and understandings throughout the full six years of their secondary schooling.

 

Tennis Court Redevelopment

At our October School Council Meeting last year, Council approved plans for the resurfacing of our Tennis Court area. We view this as the next phase of work as we seek to complete our ‘Sports Precinct’.

 

Work commenced late last year on the project and it is anticipated that, with a reasonable spell of Melbourne weather, the resurfacing should be completed within the next two weeks.

 

School Council Elections

Parents are invited to read the attached information about School Council Elections and consider whether they are able to make a tangible contribution to our College community by engaging in the overview and policy development of East Doncaster SC. Further information is on our website. Feel free to call me if you would like to discuss any matters related to our School Council.
 

Student Leadership

It was very encouraging to see the role that our extended Student Leadership team played in the assemblies and activities during this past week.

Yet again our Student Leadership program has grown in 2018 and will this year be ably managed by Kerryn Murray and Michael James. I will include more information about the full team of Student leaders in future Newsletter articles but I felt it important to acknowledge the effort of our School Captains – Cassie Leong and Josh Sist and Vice-Captains – Angelique Panagiotou and Dan Wildsmith for the roles they played this week. I am extremely excited by the opportunity to work closely with our student leaders and look forward to witnessing the positive influence they will have our school community.

 

Student Road Safety

At the commencement of the school year, it is timely to remind all within our school community to be conscious of their responsibilities in ensuring the neighbouring streets are safe for our students and all drivers.

 

Can I urge all parents to please be alert to the road signage on all boundary roads surrounding the College, and remind you to not either double park or cross the continuous white line in George Street – this is illegal and presents danger to others.

 

In the Sports Centre Car Park parents should proceed towards the southern end of the car park before stopping for their children to alight the vehicle – stopping near the crossing presents a log jam behind you and a danger to our students; please pull to the side when stopping.

 

At all times, we must have the safety of our students as a clear priority.

Outstanding Student Achievement

Year 12 student from 2017, Jenna Tang, has been selected for the prestigious VCE Top Screen. A VCE Media student last year, Jenna created a short documentary about a local Melbourne artist titled ‘Kristen’.

 

Top Screen is an exhibition of the best films from VCE Media students, including short fiction, animation and documentaries. Jenna’s work was selected from over 300 entries submitted from the thousands of students who study VCE Media. Close to 4000 students from across Victoria see Top Screen every year.

Jenna enjoyed a very successful VCE here at EDSC and it is tremendous to see that her application, hard work and creativity, aspects we certainly associated with her as a student, have been recognised in this regard.

 

A special mention is also afforded to Jenna’s Year 12 Media teacher, Brett Lamb, for the wonderful effort he displayed towards all of his Year 12 Media students and his level of technical expertise that assisted Jenna in completing such a fine body of work in her media studies.

 

Outstanding Achievement

At East Doncaster Secondary College, we pride ourselves on being a true learning community. By its very essence, this requires both students and our teachers being committed to learning and personal growth. This can be an inspirational mindset if adopted and applied to life-long learning.
 

I am therefore very pleased to be able to report that over the holiday period, one of our very talented teachers, Meihui Wang graduated from her part-time PhD studies gaining a Doctorate of Philosophy from Monash University. Meihui’s PhD thesis on educational pedagogy placed her within the top 20% of students in the PhD band of studies and is due to be published shortly.

We are very proud of Meihui’s efforts!

Careers News

The year in Careers has started with a flurry.  Our VET students attended their first VET class this week.  Excited students exited the College to catch buses, trains and if they were lucky, hitch a ride with Mum or Dad to their Host Schools or TAFEs.

 

VET students are reminded that if they are unwell on Wednesdays, they need to advise Jenny D'Altera in Careers and the College will then contact the Host School or TAFE to let them know. 

 

Work Experience:  Year 10 students should be thinking about approaching potential employers for their Work Experience placement at the end of Term 3.  Places in Hospitals, VET clinics, Medical Clinics are very competitive, so start contacting them. 

 

The General Occupational Health and Safety Module is now overdue.  If you have not completed the General Module please visit http://www.education.vic.gov.au/school/students/beyond/Pages/swguide.aspx to complete the module.

 

Part time job:  The Careers Centre has received a call from a local Hairdresser who is offering part time employment (Thursday nights and Saturdays) for an interested student.  Please come and see Jenny D’Altera to find out more.

VCAL News

At EDSC, we run an SBAT VCAL program. Students in this program attend the college on Monday and Tuesday for school delivered subjects, and on Wednesday to Friday complete apprenticeships and traineeship. The program offers a fabulous opportunity to get a head start on gaining real paid work experience and further education, while still gaining a recognised high school certificate and staying connected with school and their peers. We also aim to develop the employability skills that will make them stand out in the job market, and a sense of the worth of using their knowledge to contribute to the wider community.

 

At school we are completing a number of integrated projects that incorporate learning outcomes from all of their school based subjects, as well as showcasing the skills that the students are specialising in through their chosen field. Our students are completing training in a wide range of fields, including early childhood education, carpentry, electrical, automotive, beauty, animal studies, retail, hospitality, production, landscaping, and more!

 

This term, students are setting up a small business in small teams, and as individuals, using the $20 Boss program developed by the Foundation for Young Australians. These businesses will be developed, prototypes made and tested, marketed, and products and services sold to target markets. We look forward to seeing what our students can produce, and hope to showcase their products and services to the school community by the end of term.

 

Also, the students are putting their teamwork, organisation and negotiation skills to the test. 

One of the first VCAL projects for 2018 is landscaping and re-designing the administration building courtyard.

 

Senior and Intermediate students worked together with great spirits to remove plants and soil whilst practicing OHS procedures.

 

The students held meetings and consulted with the Principal team, ran risk assessments and started the design process with the aim of transforming the space into a modern garden.

The VCAL class will continue to engage in community projects throughout the year and encourage all EDSC staff members to call out if in need of their expertise.

 

We’ll share before and after photos so everyone can see the great work and real-life skills our VCAL students are capable of.

Middle School News

Middle School Staff

The Middle School Coordination Team would like to welcome both new and returning students and their families to the 2018 school year. We welcome communication with parents and carers and endeavour to support all students to achieve positive outcomes during their time in Years 7, 8 and 9 by working in partnership with families.

From Orientation Day to official EDSC Year 7 students

We are excited in Middle School to have approximately 300 new Year 7 students starting with us this year.

 

They first came to us on Orientation Day in December 2017, excited, if a little nervous to begin their secondary school journey. Orientation Day provided a range of fun activities designed to introduce students to each other and familiarise them with our College. Students came away with new friends and a greater confidence in facing the challenges ahead.

 

Scroll forward to the 30th January 2018 and the Year 7s were back, this time in their EDSC uniforms, ready to become “real” secondary school students!

 

What a great job they’re doing! Students are learning about the routines of secondary school, negotiating locker etiquette, reading Compass, changing classes, learning about our College Values, meeting lots of new students and teachers, and hopefully having a fun and interesting time!

Year 9 Peer Support Leaders - making connections and helping Year 7 students transtion to secondary school

The EDSC Peer Support Program aims to build the capacity of students to support each other and contribute positively to the school community.

It aims to build the confidence and resilience of our Year 7 students and develop their sense of connectedness to each other and the school.

Approximately 60 trained Year 9 Peer Support Leaders will facilitate the program, under the supervision of Year Level Coordinators and Wellbeing staff. They will develop skills in mentoring younger students and will learn to work effectively with other leaders. They will be contributing to creating a caring, values-driven school community.

 

The Program

Peer Support Leaders will present formal sessions on a range of topics related to transition to secondary school. These will include the following and will occur two to three times a term.

  1. Getting Used to Secondary School (getting around, learning names, coping with homework and classwork, canteen, lockers).
  2. Communication- diaries, I-pads and COMPASS.
  3. Friendships – building them, maintaining them, when they change.
  4. Organisation - Homework and Study, Learning Tasks, juggling subjects.
  5. Cyber-Safety – responsible use of the internet and digital technologies, avoiding risky behaviours, respect for self and others.

They will also be involved in supporting Year 7 students at school events such as Year 7 Orientation Day, first day of school for Year 7 students, first Sport Education classes for Year 7 students, Year 7 Values Assemblies, the EDSC Swimming Carnival and the EDSC Year 7 Cross Country. At these events Peer Support Leaders will perform a range of duties from acting as officials, providing encouragement and support to participants, running fun activities and competitions and handing out refreshments.

Peer Support Leaders will also be involved in running lunchtime sports sessions in the stadium and supporting Year 7 students attending the Middle School Homework Club and Breakfast Club.

Peers can provide advice and understanding during times of change and help young people feel valued. We look forward to our Year 9 Leaders building connections with Year 7 students and assisting them in their transition to secondary school.

Acknowledgement of Achievement

Our acknowledgement this fortnight goes to 1 student.

 

Elaine Lu.

 

Elaine made every student a 7G keyring as a welcome to 7G for her class for the start of school. This simple act has helped to foster a culture in the class of looking out for each other and that we work best together not as individuals. Doing this showed great Care and Compassion, Teamwork and Respect.

 

Great work guys!

Top Screen Success

EDSC’s Jenna T has been selected for the prestigious VCE Top Screen. A VCE Media student at East Doncaster Secondary College in 2017, Jenna created a short documentary about a local Melbourne artist titled Kristen. 

 

Top Screen is an exhibition of the best films from VCE Media students, including short fiction, animation and documentaries. Jenna’s work was selected from over 330 entries submitted from the thousands of students who study VCE Media. Close to 4000 students from across Victoria see Top Screen every year.

 

Jenna’s documentary explores the influences and passion of a young artist working in Melbourne.

 

“I am really proud for my Media SAT Kristin to be selected for Top Screen and to represent EDSC at the events that my work will be exhibited at,” said Jenna. “I was in an extremely privileged position to have access to Brett Lamb’s expertise, as his knowledge and guidance about film production was of great assistance to me across not only the period in which I created Kristin, but across all my time in VCE Media as well. Furthermore, I am extremely grateful for the school’s high quality filming, audio and editing equipment that I was able to borrow really helped me bring my film together.”

 

In Year 12 Media, Jenna honed her understanding of media production and intends to pursue a career in the media industry. “Being accepted into Top Screen has given me more confidence in myself that a career in the media industry is where I wish to head,” she said. “This would never have happened without the help of EDSC.

“My time at EDSC was a journey of development and self discovery, and it helped me realise my capabilities and aim big in life.”

House News

The history behind the 'Houses' at EDSC

In 2018 we have a brand new team of both Middle and Senior School House Captains at East Doncaster SC. As part of their orientation into this vitally important leadership role at the college, the Senior house captains were asked to research who the houses were named after and link our college values to those upheld by the significant Australians by which the houses are named.

 

The history behind the naming of the houses is important for all members of the college to be aware of, but especially our new Year 7 cohort, who can now understand the history and begin to embrace being a member of a house at East Doncaster SC.

Michael James

Student Leadership (House Activities)

 

BRADMAN (Blue)

Named after - Sir Donald BRADMAN (1908-2001)

Often referred to as "The Don", he was an Australian Test cricketer who is acknowledged as the greatest  batsman of all time. Bradman's career test batting average of 99.94 is often cited as the greatest achievement by any sportsman in any major sport. There are countless quotes about Bradman as our greatest-ever sportsman but one that puts him and his aura into perspective came from someone unexpected - Nelson Mandela. When was released from jail after 27 years one of his first questions was: "Is Don Bradman still alive?" As a fiercely competitive sportsman, Bradman consistently demonstrated the values of teamwork and excellence throughout his cricket career.

Bradman Senior House Captains

 

CHISHOLM (Gold)

Named after - Caroline CHISHOLM (1808-1877)

Caroline Chisholm was a 19th-century English humanitarian known mostly for her involvement with female immigrant welfare in Australia. When she arrived in Australia in 1838, Chisholm found migrant women from Britain lying homeless and begging on the street. As others walked by, she vowed to make a difference. Over the next 10 years, she wrote letters, hounded bureaucrats and pestered the Governor to make conditions better for those arriving in the colony. Chisholm upheld the values of respect and fairness - as she consistently prioritised the health and welfare of others.

Bailey A and Caitlyn Y

Chisholm Senior House Captains

 

Dunlop (Green)

Named after - Sir Edward ‘Weary’ DUNLOP (1907-1993)

As skeletal Diggers lay around him barely breathing in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp, Edward ‘Weary’ Dunlop stood tall. Each day for three years he eyeballed his heartless captors, protecting his men who were forced to build the notorious Burma-Thailand "Death Railway". A surgeon who played two rugby union Tests for Australia before World War II, he was tortured for protecting those he considered were too sick to work on the railway. Dunlop’s displays of resilience and care and compassion during World War II make him a revered figure in Australian history.

Chloe D and Edita S

Dunlop Senior House Captains

 

Sutherland (Red)

Named after – Dame Joan SUTHERLAND (1926-2010)

Dame Joan Sutherland was one of the most remarkable female opera singers of the 20th century possessing a voice of beauty and power. An intense lover of continually learning and improving her capacity as a singer, Sutherland was known for having one of the most formidable vocal techniques of all time – being able to get through the most demanding opera roles using mind over matter and giving her fellow singers a lesson in superb technical singing. Sutherland was a generous and supportive ambassador of the art of opera and continually showed the values of excellence and curiosity throughout her career.

Year 7 and Year 10 Vaccinations

The Secondary School Vaccine Program offers free vaccines to Year 7 & 10 students. These vaccines provide protection against:

 

Year 7

  • Diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough) – one dose
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV) – two doses

Year 10

  • Meningococcal ACWY (Yr 10 only)

Parents/guardians of year 7 & 10 students should look out for the vaccine consent card booklet coming home from school with your child. You need to read the booklet and complete and return Part A regardless of whether your child is being vaccinated at school or not.

Manningham City Council’s immunisation team may contact you about the Secondary School Vaccine Program. Schools are authorised to provide basic parent/guardian contact details to local councils for this purpose. Contact the school by 28 February 2018 if you do not want your contact details given to the Manningham City Councils immunisation service.

Year 7 and Year 10 Vaccination Program

The Secondary School Vaccine Program offers free vaccines to help make sure students and communities are protected from diseases such as diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, human papillomavirus (HPV) for year 7 students and; Meningococcal ACWY for year 10 students.

 

Local councils deliver the program and schools distribute the information and consent card booklets.

 

The Public Health and Wellbeing Regulations 2009 authorises secondary schools to provide their local council with student and parent/guardian contact information for any student scheduled to receive a vaccination. This information assists local councils to follow-up parents/guardians of students with incomplete or missing consent cards.

 

What information goes to local council?

Schools provide the following basic student and parent/guardian contact information:

  • Student name, gender, date of birth, year level, class, language(s) spoken at home
  • Parent/guardian names, phone numbers, email and postal addresses

Why do schools provide this information?

  • To ensure all Year 7 & 10 students are offered the opportunity to access free vaccinations at school.
  • To improve communication with parents/guardians regarding their child’s vaccination needs
  • To reduce the administrative burden on school staff to follow-up consent cards

 

What do I need to do?

  1. Your information will be provided to Manningham City Council in March 2018. If you do not wish for your details to be provided, please advise the school in writing before 28 February 2018.
  2. Read the information provided in your child’s consent card booklet and complete all sections, regardless of whether or not you consent for your child to be vaccinated as part of the school-based program.
  3. Detach Part A of the consent card booklet with all fields completed, and return to school.

Every day vaccination saves lives and makes it possible for Victorians to live free from the illness and disability caused by many infectious diseases. All Year 7 & 10 Victorian secondary students can receive these vaccines for free.
