From the Principal

 

Effective partnerships are central to our work at the College, and we pleased to now be collaborating with Millennium Kids (MK) and Manning Men’s Shed (MMS).

 

We were delighted to learn that MMS was keen to find a partner school to model how Precious Plastic – the Dutch organisation with which the College has been in touch since seeing their open-source recycling machines in action when we were visiting Beijing, earlier this year – can empower youth and extend and connect communities. We are thrilled that Ramon Baro of MMS has now almost completed the first prototypes of plastic-recycling machines.

 

This partnership with MMS then saw the College connect with MK. For over 22 years, MK has empowered young people to have their say about the environment, leading to initiatives that have contributed significantly to the environment and communities in WA and beyond.

 

MK has a team of engineers to review designs and assist with access to grant-giving agencies/groups, and MK was pleased to form a partnership with MMS and ASC focused on our Precious Plastic project. This partnership is built on a shared interest in the UN Global Goals, specifically Goal #12 – responsible consumption and production, aiming for waste-free communities.

 

All Saints’ role will be as an active partner and hub, whose culture and curriculum support student-centred problem-solving. 

 

In keeping with our planning since our visit to Beijing in April this year, ASC will host Precious Plastic machines on campus and, thanks to our new partners, we will be a pilot study (2019) for how the machines work in schools, and how schools and communities can partner in programs relating to waste reduction.

 

Our partnership with MK also led us to host one half-day of MK’s Unconference earlier this year.

 

Our plan is to run hackathons and other events with our students, focusing on the reduction of waste, and we will reach out to other schools and groups once we have settled into the pilot.

 

As part of this connectivity, we will also collaborate with students in Sumbawa, Indonesia (east of Lombok) where MK already has ongoing relationships built around Precious Plastic.

 

We have already benefited from our partnership with MK and MMS with access to resources and mentors, and we will continue to benefit from and contribute to the partnership as we pilot how to establish a hub that sees school and community working together to reduce waste.

 

I look forward to reporting further on this exciting project in the new year.

WHOLE SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPH

PRINT COLLECTION

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).

 

PRINTS STILL AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

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]

REMINDER – 2019 CLASS PLACEMENT REQUESTS

While we have every confidence in our students’ capacity to effectively manage the transition from this year into 2019, at times parents feel it is necessary to make a request that their child be given particular consideration based on information, particularly friendships. We discourage requests based on staff preference, as we have every confidence in the quality of our staff. While we do consider friendship requests carefully, we are unable to guarantee that every request will be granted, as it may not be possible due to the needs of other students.

 

To make a request, we ask you email the Dean of Junior School by contacting Mrs Fiona Schwarzinger at [email protected]. Please ensure the email is sent by tomorrow, Friday, 9 November 2018 to ensure it can be passed on to the appropriate staff members in a timely manner. Beyond that date, we will be working to finalise the lists and begin making plans based on these. (Please do not send any requests after Friday, 9 November unless the reason is of an urgent nature.)

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR TERM 4 SWIMMING LESSONS

Round two of swimming lessons commenced for Pre-Primary and Year 2, 4 and 6 students this week. The following information serves as a reminder for parents who have their students currently swimming. Our practices are regularly reviewed with a focus on student safety, and we have carefully planned the changing routines of our young children.

 

In the interest of all the children involved, we respectfully ask that parents do not attend these sessions. We have very limited space, and we need the time to give the children the attention they require. We have a team of qualified, enthusiastic and dedicated educators to make this process a smooth and well-supported experience for your children.

YEAR 8 EXCURSION TO ST GEORGE’S CATHEDRAL

On Tuesday, 30 October, the Year 8 cohort travelled to St George’s Cathedral in the city centre to explore and learn about the historic Mother Church of the Anglican Diocese of Perth.

 

The students participated in eight workshops which explored the Central Nave and High Altar – both rich with symbolism (which students have been learning about in Religion and Philosophy); learnt about robes and treasures of the Cathedral; climbed the bell tower and learnt how the rope-pulled bells worked; studied the pipe organ with All Saints' Heritage Coordinator,  Mr John Beaverstock, one of a very few people authorised to play the organ in St George’s Cathedral. Everyone then descended into the crypt with Head of Humanities Ms Trish Harris to reflect on the history of crypts and the concept of death; contrasted the historic Cathedral with the bustle of the modern city; and listened to the legend of St George from a professional actor.

 

The day closed with a reflective service, with students lighting candles of prayer and giving thanks for their opportunities in life.

 

Overall, the day was full of crosscurricular learning, and the students returned quite surprised at how much fun a day in a cathedral could actually be.

YEAR 12 COLOURING BOOK

Starting to think about Christmas and stocking fillers? Why not purchase a colouring book designed by Year 12 ASC students for the younger members of your family?

 

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 which allow time for them to work through some study, catch up with staff members or look after their wellbeing by getting involved in some physical, creative or restful sessions where they can take their mind off their academic studies for a small period of time.

 

During the year the Visual Arts staff opened up the Art rooms for wellbeing sessions with an end product in mind – a colouring book. Year 12 students who took up these sessions created the drawings for the colouring books that are available for purchase at the Runway Pop-Up Shop for $8.00 each. All money raised through the sale of this book goes to beyondblue, a foundation that provides information and support to help Australians achieve their best possible mental health, whatever their age and wherever they live, and is a partner of the All Saints’ College Service Learning Program.

 

Thank you to the following Year 12 students who contributed their drawings to this project:

The HotHouse Company presents:

STORYLINES STUDENT FILMS

The following was written by Year 10 student Ayla Woodland about her experience at this year's Storylines Festival.

 

During the Storylines Festival, Miranda Templeman, Travis Gauntlett and Cameron Moore (Year 10) and I had the opportunity to create two short promotional videos for the event. The experience was most enjoyable and very beneficial. It taught us a lot about quick media production and how to work as a team.

 

We started by filming Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa’s presentation on her original play “Fully Sikh.” Filming people live without being able to stop and direct the subject made getting the shot you want a challenge. The experience eventually equipped us to become accustomed to the situation and produce some shots we were happy with.

 

We then split into teams. Miranda and I scoped the multiple workshops running throughout the day while Cameron and Travis started editing. This taught us how to work fast and efficiently as a team, while also experiencing the essence of each workshop. After the workshops, Miranda and I were able to capture the hilarity and joy of the play written by members of the Junior School and presented by Black Swan Theatre actors. If we had not taken this opportunity, we would not have been able to see the masterpiece happen on stage. Working out fast ways to get the best shots of interesting scenes tested our skills and made us think on our feet.

 

It’s safe to say that the day was most enjoyable and a success. The team and I learned much, gained a great amount of experience and produced something we are proud of.

ART, MEDIA, DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGIES' EXHIBITION

Friday, 26 October saw the launch of the All Saints’ College Art, Media, Design and Technologies’ Exhibition.

 

Congratulations to all the talented artists who produced the work on display, and to our Arts staff who have guided the ASC students throughout the year and have worked tirelessly to organise this exhibition. Thanks also to Brendan and Darren Hutchens for their impressive documentary ‘Art is Movement’ which can be viewed below.

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

ART IS MOVEMENT DOCUMENTARY

The documentary ‘Art is Movement’, created by Perth filmmaker Brendan Hutchens, was premiered at the opening of the Art, Media, Design and Technologies Exhibition on Friday, 26 October.

 

Art is Movement’ documents the creation of the mural in the College’s Dance Studio by artist and Brendan’s brother Darren Hutchens. While Darren worked on his mural named 'Dancing on the Walls', he engaged with ASC Visual Arts students about his practice and processes in creating his artworks. This interaction inspired a collaborative project called ‘Drawn to Dance’ between Year 7 Project X Dance and Visual Arts students.

SALVATION ARMY CHRISTMAS APPEAL

Starting this week, the College begins work with The Salvation Army on the Annual Saints’ and Salvos Christmas Appeal. Each College Tutor Group is connected with a family in need and will spend the next three weeks collecting gifts to give to the family for Christmas.

 

Year 8 students have recently joined the vertical Tutor Group system, and this program provides an opportunity for these students to lead their new peers in making a positive difference in the world.

 

The College has a strong and productive relationship with The Salvation Army, and we are proud to support them in their mission of helping families in need during this time of year. Your support of the program and the Tutor Groups is greatly appreciated.

 

The Tutor Groups will work together to develop a list of gifts they would like to donate, and anything you can provide would go a long way.

 

Please join the College and the students in their efforts to practice generosity and make Christmas as positive as it can be for those families in need.

Learning Technologies

Microsoft Stream

Making a video as part of an assessment or project is an increasingly popular way for students to be able to use some great tools on any kind of device to get creative about how you present their work (Photos app).

This tip is about how students share videos via Stream –  teachers can create a channel for class projects which works much better than a folder on the S drive. Click here for more details.

 

Skypeathon

On 13 and 14 November Microsoft are running a special event to connect classes across the city or anywhere in the world. The senior leadership team at Microsoft have spots available to Skype in and be grilled! Teachers can search for and connect with students similar to their age anywhere in the world. For all the "miles" travelled Microsoft donate money to charity also. Click HERE for more information about the Skypeathon.

TwentyTwentyOne

Last week we launched a student run, student-led website to the Year 9 students initially. The site is for students to share study materials, ask questions, do quizzes created by members of the team. Congratulatulations to Myles Keeffe, Ashley Lance and Michelle Thesman (Year 9) for all their work getting this together. Students will login with their school details and we are hosting the site but it is all student-driven from there.

Forms updates

One of the cool new features in Forms is intelligent design – Forms can now predict what questions you want to ask and give you multiple choice alternatives. Check out the details where I show how this works with equations in Maths. Forms is a great way to do surveys – next time you want to do a paper survey – don’t!

We will be offering four Code Camp classes to cater for students in Pre-Primary to Year 7, including brand new ‘Web Hackers' for students who have completed all existing classes.

 

The camp will run 15–17 January 2019.

 

Bookings are now open and can be accessed by clicking HERE

The Early Bird Discount is available until Sunday, 18 November.

 

We look forward to helping your child become a coding superstar.
