From the Principal

 

I am delighted to introduce to the ASC community our College Captains-Elect. Fortune Aniyi and Grace Hoes are very much looking forward to leading the student body in 2019, and write the following by way of introduction:

 

Grace writes:

“Starting my schooling at Campbell Primary School, my interest in leadership and community service was sparked when I presented a speech to the Governor on my work on Organ Donation. This proved the catalyst to push my boundaries as a person and as a potential leader.

 

“On arrival at All Saints’ College in Year 7, I was immediately engaged by the breadth of activities to participate in, and set about immersing myself in whatever possible. I loved the strong sense of community that existed within the College and have felt immensely supported by my teachers and peers in every aspect of my schooling life. I’ve always felt encouraged to engage in the opportunities that All Saints’ provides to all of its students; opportunities that have subsequently shaped me as an individual.

 

“I have a very close connection to my family; they have had a huge influence on who I am, and have been an unfaltering support network throughout my life. My family is also an immense source of inspiration to me, and I admire the strength, determination and empathy of my parents and sister.

 

“On a personal level, I have a strong interest in Dance, Drama and Art, as well as travel, global affairs and humanitarianism. Post-school I hope to achieve a degree in Medicine, with aspirations of working in rural Australia with our Indigenous population, or perhaps overseas in disadvantaged nations.

 

“For 2019, I hope to lead by being involved, to encourage others to immerse themselves in the culture and community of the College, and to take the opportunities provided to them. Leadership is not a position or a title; rather, it is an action and example, and I hope that this is a moral I can follow and uphold throughout my time as College Captain.”

 

And Fortune writes:

“I started at ASC in 2011, in Year 4, and I have loved every moment of being here since then.

 

“I am part of a family of five: I have two younger sisters who are also currently attending the College. My family is of African heritage, originally from Nigeria.

 

“I love to play sports, especially Soccer and Basketball, which I enjoy playing with my friends and family during the weekends and in the holidays. I am also interested in Athletics and I like to go biking with my friends around the river during my free time.

 

“I have a real passion for helping others in the community and, because of this, I would love to study Medicine in the future.

 

“One thing I really cherish about ASC is how diverse we are as a College: we have so many different people with different cultures, backgrounds and stories to share, which is awesome to have within our school community. Everyone – students and staff – is so willing to make a difference, not just within the College but also in the wider community, and this is something I really love about ASC.

 

“As a leader within the College, I really hope to be able to inspire the people of ASC to have a heart for serving others in the community, as it is through this that we will be able to have a lasting positive impact on the community around us.”


We wish Fortune, Grace and the 2019 Student Council every success as they lead their various portfolios in the coming year, building upon the great work of those who came before them.

There are only 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. 

 

Please note: Families who have already placed orders will be contacted next week regarding the collection of their prints from the College in Week 9. If you chose to have the print/s charged to your school account then it will appear in the next monthly bill.

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.

YEARS 5 AND 6 GRANDPARENTS AND FRIENDS' MORNING

After a presentation and performance, our guests enjoyed Morning Tea and then visited the classrooms with their grandchildren.

 

The College has a thriving Grandparents and Friends’ Club which was established last year to provide further opportunities for grandparents to visit the campus and receive regular communication. To join the club, please email [email protected].wa.edu.au

CHILDREN’S BOOK WEEK

Last week our students recognised the importance of literature and the joy of reading in the 2018 Children’s Book Week. This annual event also acknowledged the creativity of Australian children’s authors and illustrators represented in the Shortlisted Books for 2018.

 

Various activities took place in the Junior School this week, including our annual Parents Night In, Early Childhood Centre Book Character Dress-Up Assembly, and our popular Pop-Up Library.

 

Tying in with the theme of this year's Book Week ‘Find Your Treasure’, an archaeological ‘dig’ took place in the Library. Students donned gloves and used tools to find artefacts buried in the sand that matched to a book title. Thanks to Year 3 students Samara Edwards and Holly Walker for helping to design, set up and run the ‘dig’ during lunchtimes.

 

Senior School

SECONDARY SUPPLY OF ALCOHOL LAWS
All Saints’ College urges its community, in particular parents of young people 12 to 17 years of age and those in contact with people who are under 18, to become familiar with the Secondary Supply of Alcohol Laws (see below). The College endorses the importance of preventing the supply of alcohol to young people in the best interests of their health and wellbeing.

 

Secondary Supply of Alcohol Laws came in to effect in Western Australia on 20 November 2015. This legislation has significant meaning and implications for parents of young people.

Secondary supply laws mean that giving alcohol to under 18s in private settings without parental consent is against the law.

 

The new amendment to the Liquor Control Act 1988 states:

“Section 122A – Making it an offence to supply liquor to juveniles on unlicensed premises without the consent of the juvenile’s parent or guardian:

 

Where a person supplies liquor to a juvenile on unlicensed premises without the consent of the young person’s parent or guardian, a $10,000 penalty applies. For example, a 16-year-old attends a party of a friend whose parents are happy for the teenagers to drink and have purchased liquor for that purpose. Before supplying the teenagers with liquor (other than their own), the host parents must first obtain approval from the parents/guardians of all those juveniles in attendance.”

 

The following link to the ‘Alcohol Think Again’ website provides many valuable resources for parents and young people:

http://alcoholthinkagain.com.au/Parents-Young-People/What-Parents-Need-to-Know

 

I also take this opportunity to invite members of our community to read our College Drug and Alcohol Policy, by clicking HERE. This policy outlines All Saints’ commitment to drug and alcohol education and a learning environment for all students that is free of prohibited, non-medical drugs and the misuse of prescription drugs. Drug use is a complex issue and the College recognises that its role in the prevention of drug use requires a comprehensive approach.

 

Some of the key elements of this policy are based on a three-point strategy comprising Education, Discipline/Rehabilitation and Communication/Promotion.

 

Our efforts to educate our community include invitations and opportunities, such as presentations offered to students by expert guest speakers who visit the College as a part of our Djaaliny program.

 

However, students who are found to have possessed, distributed or consumed alcoholic beverages, solvents or other prohibited drugs while in the care of the College, in College uniform or at College events will be expected and encouraged to take responsibility for their actions, acknowledging the detrimental effects of their actions on the College community. In particular, students found to be in possession of drugs at any of these times face exclusion from the College, and when drugs and/or associated items are located, the College will immediately notify the police. The College has no tolerance for members of the community found to be selling or supplying drugs or alcohol while at the College, in College uniform or at a College event.

 

PAUL DILLON – DJAALINY PRESENTATION

Paul Dillon from Drug and Alcohol Research and Training Australia (DARTA) visited the College on Monday, 27 August.

 

For many years now, Paul has made an annual visit to the College to speak with our students in Years 10, 11 and 12. He delivers developmentally appropriate messages to each of the year groups, and each student will have attended three of his presentations by the end of their time at the College. Paul uses research-based data to speak with students about the use of alcohol and other drugs in the community. His approach with students is to take a harm-minimisation approach and his focus is on keeping young people safe.

 

Paul delivers some key messages in his presentations that help to safeguard students, should they or their friends find themselves in a difficult situation regarding the use of alcohol or other drugs. These messages were reinforced in this newspaper article about a dreadful alcohol-related incident involving a young Perth girl which I sent to our Years 10 – 12 students to remind them that Paul’s messages are based on reality. You can view this article by clicking HERE.

 

LOST ITEMS OF UNIFORM
A number of families have indicated that their child has lost an item or items of uniform whilst at the College or involved in activities for the College. In many cases, those items are simply mistakenly picked up by another student in the rush to get to the next activity or at the end of a lesson. All items of uniform should have the name of the student written on them in some form; some, unfortunately, do not. Most families, however, are able to identify when an item of uniform that is not their own child’s is brought home.

 

I would very much appreciate if all families could review their child’s uniform items at home and identify those items that do not belong to the family, then ensure they are dropped off at the central Junior School lost property bin (outside the Health Centre) or the Senior School lost property bin (outside Student Services).

 

Your assistance in this process of returning items of uniform to their rightful owner is very much appreciated.

OUTDOOR EDUCATION EXPEDITION

As part of their practical assessment, the Year 12 Outdoor Education class recently went on a bushwalking expedition along the Bibbulmun Track from North Bannister to Dwellingup. During the hike they were questioned about Outdoor Education principles and had to apply the theoretical knowledge they have learned to the practical demands of their task.

 

Prior to leaving, the students were responsible for organising and planning for their designated leadership day when they would be in control of the group, including ensuring adequate breaks and lunchtimes were taken, monitoring their time management (pacing, speed, pack ups and cooking times), and keeping group morale high. Their leadership, communication and organisation skills were tested, and they all stood up to the challenge, allowing them to successfully complete the four-day, 65km expedition safely and efficiently.

 

Although a challenging experience, all the students pushed through the blisters, sore bodies and mental trials, leading to a rewarding learning experience for all involved.  

 

The Year 12 Outdoor Education students who attended the expedition include Bell Clayton, Sophie Driscoll, Henry McNamee and Sebastian Morse.

VOICES PROJECT

During the recent Fitzroy Crossing Service Learning Immersion to Bayulu Remote Community School and Muludja Remote Community School, the College launched the Voices Program, which saw two Media students Christian Rudd (Year 12) and Max Baldock (Year 11) gather the stories of some significant community members.

 

The paragraph below written by Max outlines his experience in the community.

 

"To say that the Voices Project experience was phenomenal is an understatement. I can't even put into words, let alone find the right words, just how fantastic it was to be able to participate in this project with the Bayulu community. 

 

"In an All Saints’ College first, Christian Rudd (Year 12), Ms Cameron, Mr Mark Stickells and I joined with the annual ASC Teach Learn Grow Service Learning trip to Fitzroy Crossing, to work with the Bayulu Remote Community School.

 

"As a Media student, I have been involved in producing many types of media for my classes: movie trailers, music videos, film noirs and now podcasts; but the thing about this project, which is quite unique, is the fact that we went up to Fitzroy Crossing with the goal of collecting as much audio and film as we could capture, not knowing what the end project would be. We only knew our objective was to capture the voices, the sounds, the culture, the community as best we could.

 

"Prior to arriving, we had many pre-conceived thoughts as to what the community and its school might be like, due to the stereotyping we see in the media. Meeting our interviewees, however – notably Mr Andrew Shandley – proved us wrong. People like Andrew treasure meeting new people and forming relationships with others who really want to get a valuable insight into their lives within their school and community. We interviewed him on the first day. As a bus driver, he came to the school every day and, when he could, he would make the effort to greet Christian, Ms Cameron, Mr Stickells and me, and ask how we are going and about our project, but to also keep that relationship strong. 

 

"This is an experience that any passionate Media student should certainly apply to be a part of, as you will never do anything like it in class. Even if Media is not your strong point, just to be a part of something so unique and special that takes you outside any school experience definitely makes it worth putting forward an expression of interest."

 

Max Baldock (Year 11)

NULSEN YOUTH PATRONS

The Year 10 Nulsen Youth Patrons for 2018 have had a very busy week, contributing to two fantastic fundraising events, raising money for Nulsen Disability Services.

 

NULSEN QUIZ NIGHT

On Friday, 24 August the team of Nulsen Youth Patrons from All Saints’ College hosted over 150 students from Hale School, Methodist Ladies College and All Saints’, to participate in an extremely entertaining quiz night.

 

The Youth Patrons did a wonderful job organising and facilitating the event, under the generous guidance of Emma Gardiner from Nulsen and quiz master Johno from Zeniths.

 

The night was full of laughter, excitement and intellectual prowess, as well as sausage sizzles and a great selection of raffle prizes. Together, the patrons raised $2 564 for Nulsen Disability Services – a wonderful effort!

 

CITY TO SURF

After a quick pack up and a day to rest, many of the Youth Patrons braved the cold early morning and participated in the Chevron City to Surf. The All Saints’ students competed in the 4km and 12km events alongside clients from Nulsen Disability Services. Each of the runners contributed to a fundraising page, raising even more money for Nulsen.

 

The students contributed excellently and represented the College proudly, demonstrating our Heads, Hearts and Hands approach to Service Learning.

RUNWAY

The Runway Pop-up-Shop has been launched in Wanju Café this week. It is now ready for the Year 10s to launch their $20 Boss businesses.

 

Students do not need to be present to sell their products; we’ll have a team of students who work at Runway on set days and times. At other times, items will just be on display and interested customers can place orders by emailing the businesses.

 

Other students keen to sell their items in Runway are to email Ms Strentz: [email protected]

 

YEE PUBLISHING PROJECT

The All Saints’ College and YEE Publishing Project is off to a great start.  We’re starting with Years 7 - 12 students and will be inviting Years 5 and 6 students to join the project in Term 4.

 

Thus far, students have been creating the cast of characters who live in the kitchen which is the setting for our stories. We plan to work with Pre-Primary students in the coming weeks to test out and get feedback on our characters.

 

ELECTRIC VEHICLE TEAM

The Electric Vehicle team continues to meet on Tuesdays. Their design is finished and we’re now waiting on some of our first parts to arrive, so the students can work with their coaches to build the car.

 

YEAR 8 CREATIVE INDUSTRIES

Year 8 Creative Industries had a guest speaker this week -  social entrepreneur Melvyn Gilbert, whose career started with Broadcast Journalism and is now in Accounting, both as a practising accountant and university lecturer.

 

His story is compelling and his latest undertaking 'Spincycle' involves a  project (which is still in planning) for bringing washing machines to the homeless. Click HERE to find out more about Spincycle and their partners the Fortuna Foundation.
