From the Principal

 

What will I do when I don’t know what to do?

This is a commonly and methodically asked question at All Saints’ College: each of us is often, after all (regardless of our age and stage in life), challenged on a regular basis by situations of which we’ve had no former experience.

 

And, as we discuss with all students across the College, as each of us navigates our way through the uncharted territory called ‘life’, we sometimes need help to know what to do when we don’t know what to do.

 

It is important that our young people carry confidently with them, on campus and beyond, a toolkit packed full of handy strategies to navigate the landscape of life. For an ASC student, amongst other things that toolkit will include experience and / or knowledge of the Christian faith, awareness of the Seven Habits and, of course, RIC.

 

When life throws at us an experience for which we were not prepared, and of which we’ve no previous experience, we remind our young people to “Ask RIC.”

 

RIC represents our College values - a compass to guide us through life’s simplest quandaries as well as the trickiest of circumstances - and we thank all families for reinforcing at home with our young people the usefulness of RIC, as staff do each day on campus:

 

Respect: what is the respectful thing for me to do in this situation, out of respect for myself and others, for my community and for my environment?

 

Integrity: what choice might I make here which will show moral strength and grace, humility and compassion?

 

Courage: what action ought I take in this situation as I strive to be my very best self?

PARENTS NEEDED FOR SHORT FOCUS GROUP

As part of the continual development of our online environment, the College is researching parent / guardian needs from our SEQTA / Portal / Synergetic platforms.
 

To help us build a better online ecosystem for you, we are asking for your input into a focus group being held at the College in the near future on Wednesday, 28 March – 6.00pm – 8.00pm

 

A professional facilitator is running the session and is very experienced in working with focus groups; it is an interesting experience for those that have not done one before.

 

All you would need to do is bring along your phone, phone charger and / or laptop or iPad – whatever device you would normally use to log into SEQTA on your phone for example. We will provide finger food, tea, coffee and alcoholic refreshments.​


It is not technically challenging, rather gathering everyone’s thoughts on what we have now and what might be in the future.

 

This focus group will play a very important part in the research component of our new parent / guardian online ecosystem under development. I thank you in advance for your support. Numbers are capped at 10 per group so please email [email protected] to secure your place.

PASAR MALAM 

The 2018 All Saints’ College Pasar Malam Twilight Market was arguably the biggest and best one yet!

 

On Friday, 23 February, more than 4 000 community members converged on our College oval to enjoy the live entertainment, participate in some exciting activities, peruse more than 50 market stalls, and sample some delicious cultural cuisines and beverages.


This year’s highly successful Pasar Malam was due to the efforts of many people. We thank our Parents and Friends’ (P&F) Society for their generosity, our Student Council who helped in a variety of ways, the College’s Grounds and Maintenance teams for all their hard work behind the scenes, and the many staff, student and parent volunteers. Well done also to our College Events team for their wonderful organisation and running of this event.

 

We look forward to seeing you at the 2019 Pasar Malam!

Junior School

From the Dean of Junior School

The Junior School Year 3 – 6 Interhouse Swimming Carnivals were held on Friday, 2 March at the All Saints’ College Aquatic Centre. Junior School Sports Captains Scarlett McVeigh and Alexander Mackinlay (Year 6) opened each carnival with an Acknowledgement of Country and words of encouragement, good sportsmanship and courage to strive for personal bests.

 

The House Captains, under the guidance of Miss Kylie Chatto and the House bay staff, gave all for their Houses, including leading the cheering, promoting sportsmanship and House spirit.

 

Both carnivals were highly successful due to the support of staff and parents, and the positive, purposeful and well-mannered behaviour of our students.

 

Our thanks to the Friends of Sport for organising refreshments for the day.

 

The overall winning House, along with individual students, will be acknowledged at our next Junior School assembly on Friday, 23 March in the Centre for Performing Arts.

 

Congratulations to all of our students who participated with great endeavour and sportsmanship.

 

Results:

First – O’Connor

Second – Forrest

Third – Cowan

2018 DIARY AND SEQTA IN THE SENIOR SCHOOL

Information that was previously located in the Homework Diary has been relocated in SEQTA so that it is easily accessible to students and families.

 

Policies relating to uniform, lateness, and other procedures may be found as individual documents. Parents who have used the notes at the back of the Diary to explain lateness or a uniform mishap and have run out can also find them in SEQTA. The graphic below shows where they are all located for your use. It may be good practice to print off one or two sheets of the notes and keep them at home, or in the car for that last-minute communication.

 

The graphic shows SEQTA Engage for parents; the page in SEQTA Learn for students is the same.

ITALIAN EXCHANGE STUDENTS

 

The College is fortunate to host several students from overseas for varying lengths of time each year and has associations with different organisations across the globe. 

 

The students love their experience of Western Australian and the All Saints’ College culture, and are very grateful for the generosity shown to them by the ASC families who host them. In turn, we enjoy getting to know them and learn about their countries of origin.

 

Through our partnership with one particular organisation, goYonder, we hosted three Venetian students in 2017. We currently have with us Anna Giovine (Year 11) who will study at the College for Semester 1. We have invited three more students from Venice to join us later this year for stays of three months each. In this arrangement, host families are paid an amount of money each week (approximately $290) towards the cost of including an extra member in their family.

 

We expect to host Elisa Brocca from Venice in Term 2. We are grateful that a College family has already offered to host Elisa for most of the term, but require another family to host her for the final two weeks of her stay, from Sunday, 17 June to Saturday, 30 June, after which she departs for her home in Italy.

 

In Term 3 we will host Pietro Corezzola and Isotta Zanon. We are also seeking two families to host Pietri and Isotta - ideally one with a boy for Pietro in Senior School and one with a girl for Isotta.

 

Please contact the College’s Dean of Student Wellbeing, Steven Davies ([email protected]), if you are interested in hosting any of our visiting Italian students (for three month stays) and would like more information.

YEAR 10 VISUAL ARTS EXCURSION AT HEATHCOTE CULTURAL PRECINCT

On Friday, 23 February, the Year 10 Art students travelled to Heathcote Museum & Gallery to see the Southern Perspectives Exhibition, which showcased the work of 2017’s Year 12 Visual Art students from selected high schools south of the river.

 

The exhibition consisted of drawings, paintings, installations, sculptures and mixed media works. The sheer talent and depth of ideas displayed were both inspiring and overwhelming for the students.

 

After a good hour of admiring, analysing and simply appreciating the exhibition, students ventured outside to enjoy the perfect drawing atmosphere that Heathcote offers. Surrounded by an expanse of glistening river, pristine coastline and cliff-face, as well as the infamous Heathcote boat playground, all the Art students delved into drawing both the small and large aspects of the environment around them.

 

Overall, the Art excursion displayed what students can achieve as possible future artists, and the level that they can aspire to. The exhibition was incredibly motivating and aspirational, mixed on a palette of another enjoyable day of art.

 

 

PERSONAL ENRICHMENT PERIODS

For the first time at All Saints’ College, Year 11 and 12 students have enjoyed Personal Enrichment Periods scattered throughout their timetable. Known as PEP sessions, the purpose of these periods is to allow our Senior School students some ownership and control over their learning.

 

Students are involved in both Academic and Wellbeing periods to allow them time to work through some study, catch up with staff members, or look after their wellbeing by getting involved in physical, creative or restful sessions which allow them to take their mind off their Academic studies for a short period of time. So far the sessions have been successful, and we are looking forward to continuing to develop and adapt our Personal Enrichment Programs to cater for each student’s individual needs.

YEAR 12 COLLEGE BALL

There are many special events that are held for our Year 12s throughout the year and the All Saints’ College Ball is one of those which creates special memories for all that attend. Invitations were given out recently and the excitement amongst the year group is at a high.

 

The College Ball will be held on Saturday, 28 April 2018 during the school holidays, and information has been sent to all Year 12 students and their families. If you have any questions or queries, please contact Year 11 – 13 Coordinator, Mr Oliver Beath: [email protected]

BEQUEST FUND LAUNCHED TO PROMOTE THE ARTS AT ALL SAINTS' COLLEGE

A bequest fund has opened at All Saints’ College with the aim of attracting national and international talent to perform at ASC and to support current students and alumni in the field of the arts.

Bequeathed by a grandparent of students at the College, the JM Wright Bequest Fund (JMWBF) will operate, initially, for five years and has two remits:

  • to attract visiting national and international leaders in the arts by subsidising costs;
  • to financially support students and alumni who are seeking to attend programs and courses linked to the arts across Australia and the world.

The JMWBF will be managed by the College’s Head of the Arts, Mr Stephen Roberts, who will work with the Principal and key staff to ensure the Fund attracts the best return on its investment.

 

“The JMWBF will allow the HotHouse Company to work strategically to attract top level performers, artists, authors and specialists to visit the College and impart their knowledge. It really is an exciting opportunity for the community,” said Mr Roberts.

 

“Previously, this sort of exposure to talent of this capacity was by chance, if the artist were visiting Perth for example, but now we can work to bring international talent to the west, for instance, if they were in Sydney or Melbourne for a performance. It opens up a world of opportunities to the All Saints’ College community,” he explained.
 

Principal, Belinda Provis, added: “What is also exciting about the JMWBF is that it encourages students and alumni to take up a variety of opportunities here and internationally by applying to the Fund for financial support. Further, it helps position the College’s HotHouse Company well for the future as a body that can attract and export the best of talent available.”

 

Information on selection criteria and eligibility will be available soon on www.hothousecompany.com.au

THE EMPTY SPACE

On Wednesday, 28 February students at All Saints' College began working with playwright, actor and director Jeffrey Jay Fowler on an exciting project called The Empty Space.

 

Over the next four months, Jeffrey will work with the students on theatrical explorations, allowing them to expand their creativity while investigating the ideas of harm and protection. They will also be led through devising exercises and asked to investigate their community.

The project will be an evolving process which will ultimately conclude in a performance.

Service Learning

SERVICE ACTIVITIES 

One of the great joys of Service at the College is the opportunity to work alongside members of the community that we might not otherwise have met.

 

Whether in the College Food Science and Technology room Cooking for the Homeless, as a Year 4 or Senior School student reading together as a Literacy Mentor pair, or in any of the various programs at the College, what we are really doing is looking beyond ourselves and taking an active hand in building our community. In coming together to serve, we share a purpose that creates new bonds within the All Saints’ community.

 

I would like to thank all involved in the new Literacy Mentors program, which started so incredibly positively last week. There were some wonderful moments of new friendships and a sense of fun in the learning that was taking place. Beyond all the wonderful students that have come together from the Junior and the Senior School, it is important to acknowledge the input of Ms Sue Demarte, who worked so hard to create this program.

I would also like to acknowledge the ongoing work of Meagan Hillier and Alicia Edwards who provide our College with the opportunity to be involved in a wonderful community event; the Cooking for the Homeless program. The next Cooking for the Homeless day will be held at the College on Sunday, 25 March across two sessions (10.00am – 12.30pm and 1.00pm – 3.30pm).

If you would like to participate or for more information, please click HERE

 

The final Disabled Surfers’ Association ‘Let’s go Surfing Day’ for the season will be held at Leighton Beach on Saturday, 17 March, with volunteers encouraged to arrive at 9.00am to register. For more information, please click HERE

Whatever your interests, abilities and availability, I look forward to seeing as many people as possible actively engage their Heads, Hearts and Hands in Service through the College.

Head of Service Learning

Propeller Enterprises

RUNWAY POP-UP SHOP

The Runway pop-up shop debut at the All Saints’ College Pasar Malam was a great success. Students from Years 7 – 12 made strawberry shortcake scented slime (which sold out), macramé hanging plant holders, Japanese kokodama inspired plants, record album bowls and platters, knitted goods by a local crafts group, and wooden candle holders by a woodworking parent.

 

The pop-up shop was run by three Year 11 students for the entire night. This included set up and take down of the shop. This was a student-led event and we are already planning where Runway will pop up next. 

 

If you’d like to make and sell items in Runway, contact Ms Strentz: [email protected]

ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHALLENGE

Propeller, with the support of three parent coaches and mentors, is recruiting for a team of students to build a car for the Electric Vehicle (EV) Challenge. During Weeks 7 – 9 you can drop by the Hangar to see a model EV. We require a keen team of students to take on the challenge of designing and building an ASC EV.  It will be raced in November 2018.

 

If you are interested in joining the team, please come along to our next meeting or contact Ms Strentz. Dates for our next meeting will be in the notices.

 

If you have a hobby or interest that you think would inspire students to design, make and create, please contact Ms Strentz at [email protected], as Propeller is aiming to build a network of parents and community members to inspire students inside and outside the classroom.

THE OLD SAINTS’ CHALLENGE

Some Year 7 students are already developing projects for the Old Saints’ Heritage Week Challenge.

Robert Smart is working on a universal lid to make all cups ‘keep cups/travel cups’. His design is well under way and he has even started on a pitch plan!

Grace Reinecke and Holly Cammarano have teamed together and are sketching designs and planning a video pitch for a cookbook holder to keep it open and clean.

It is not too late to enter so pop down to the Hangar and start creating! Entries close on Monday, 7 May 2018 at 5.00pm.

 

Learning Technologies

Microsoft Teams

The ability to work well in a team of people is one of the vital skills students will need in their work at school and beyond. Microsoft have recently released a tool that makes this easier in a digital space - it is called Microsoft Teams.

Teams brings together a number of different tools into one space:

  • Conversations/chat instead of email
  • A files section that replaces sending attachments to emails or storing files in a folder on the server or in OneDrive
  • Calling and video chats instead of Skype for Business
  • A OneNote notebook

Students can access Teams by going to https://teams.microsoft.com or open the app (they may need to download it from the Software Centre)

Check out this quick intro:

So why Teams? It is a great way to collaborate and work together – simple! You can create multiple channels that cover different areas, chat and share files, collaborate online and easily add people to the Team. Students could use Teams for a cocurricular group, a club or sports team, a class, a study group – anything!

Paint3D

Paint 3D is an amazing new app included in Windows 10. It includes the ability to create and manipulate 3D images PLUS place these into real-world scenes using your webcam.

ASC STUDENT RAISES AWARENESS OF COELIAC DISEASE

Coeliac disease is a serious medical illness, affecting one in 70 of the population. However, 80 per cent of affected Australians remain undiagnosed.

 

Ridley Babich (Year 5) has been living with the disease since he was a Pre-Primary student at All Saints’ College and this year he has joined Coeliac Australia to help raise awareness of the autoimmune illness.

 

Ridley and his family recently joined North Melbourne Football Club star Ben Brown, who also has coeliac disease, to take part in a photo shoot as part of Coeliac Australia’s awareness campaign.

 

Coeliac Australia’s national Face of Coeliac Disease campaign runs from 13 – 20 March annually and aims to increase awareness in the community that coeliac disease can occur at any age in many different people from diverse backgrounds.

 

Ridley and Ben’s meeting was also covered by Channel 9 News Melbourne and the Herald Sun Newspaper, which will help bring greater awareness of coeliac disease. Stay tuned for the media stories in the next edition of the College Courier!

 

Can you help Coeliac Australia with their national campaign?

 

Coeliac Australia needs volunteers to distribute posters in their local community to support Coeliac Awareness Week. 

 

The posters can be displayed in GP clinics, schools, work, sporting clubs, fitness centres, pharmacies, dentists, blood donation centres, hospitals, cafes and other food outlets. 

 

Send an image of yourself with the poster on location to be part of our Local Heroes campaign and be in the running to WIN one of Coeliac Australia endorsed cookbooks Hungry & Fussy by Helen Tzouganatos or author Sally Holland's Goodbye Gluten.

 

Download posters from www.coeliac.org.au/caw  and simply email your image to [email protected] or direct message Coeliac Australia’s Facebook page @CoeliacAust.
