A Look In The Mirror

The story is told of parishioners speaking to their Parish Priest:

 

‘Our Parish is dying Father. Young people do not want to come to Church’.

 

After listening to his parishioners, the Priest decided to hold a service to mark the ‘death’ of the Parish. He placed an open coffin at the front of the Church and invited the congregation to come forward and pay their respects. As the parishioners peered into the casket they were met with their own reflection. There was a mirror at the bottom of the casket.

 

Clearly it is an exaggerated story. However, the same message was reinforced to me when I recently had the pleasure of meeting the Jesuit Province Leader. Fr Brian McCoy SJ described the modern Church as the ‘Church of the Laity’. It is our collective responsibility to be active participants in the life of the Church.

 

We are thrilled that many within our community have taken the opportunity to respond to our external survey instrument. Our College is certainly not dying – it is thriving in so many ways but the input we receive will ensure that planning for our College’s future reflects the feedback we receive.

 

The last three weeks have been very significant for the Church. Last Sunday we celebrated the Feast of Corpus Christi. The greatest gift that Jesus gave is his very self. This is made possible through the sacrament of the Eucharist which was celebrated with solemnity last weekend. It is the gift ‘par excellence’. The previous two weeks had the very important acknowledgements of Trinity Sunday and Pentecost Sunday. As always we encourage our students and families to engage in the life of the Parish.

 

Together, let us seek justice.

 

Yours sincerely

Visit By Fr Chris Gleeson 

At the beginning of Semester 2 Fr Chris Gleeson SJ will be working with staff as part of our Professional Learning Program. Fr Chris is an outstanding Jesuit educator and excellent presenter. I often refer to his writings when I am looking for ideas, guidance and inspiration.

 

Whilst in Perth, Fr Chris will also give a presentation to parents and the wider community. Please refer to the link for details – I highly recommend parent attendance.

 

 

Around The Primary

Dear Parents

Today our PP-Year 3 students celebrated Mass with Fr Joe Sobb from Holy Rosary Parish, Nedlands. The children participated beautifully in this special time of prayer and reflection. A big thank you to Year 2G for organizing this liturgy and to Ms Cooney and for preparing the children so well.

On Tuesday our Year 6’s participated in a Confirmation retreat run by Karl Brown and his assistant Brigette from Faith Retreats. These engaging presenters facilitated a variety of fun sessions for the students and utilised drama, games and music to help the students reflect on receiving the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit.

 

Congratulations to our Year 5 and 6 students, their teachers and the Year 10 umpires who participated in the IPSHA Lightning Carnival yesterday. It was a wonderful sight to see the entire playing fields and courts of John XXIII filled with students from various schools playing sport. Thank you to Mr Alderman for coordinating the running of this event and to the Year 6 parents for organizing the delicious lunch for our grown-up visitors. A great time was had by all at this fantastic Winter Carnival.

 

As part of Catholic Education’s LEADing Lights Initiative, Miss Dernie and Year 5B took part in a Microsoft Video Shoot to showcase how we are using technology in the classroom. The video shoot focused on the app OneNote, and how it can be used as an online learning tool to collaborate and share ideas. It was all lights, cameras and action in Year 5B as Miss Dernie and the students did a fantastic job as showcasing how we are using the OneNote tool for learning. We look forward to sharing the video with you and the wider community when it is released by the Microsoft Education team. A big thank you to Miss Dernie for being so willing to be part of this initiative and for sharing her expertise with our students.

 

Reports will be ready to be released next Friday afternoon. I would like to thank all the teachers for the work they put into preparing the reports. During the holidays please take the time to sit with your children and discuss their reports, highlighting the areas of personal achievement and strengths while recognising opportunities for further growth. Parents are welcome to discuss their child's academic progress with their child's teacher next term if they have any concerns.

 

We hope many parents and friends can join us at the Music Eisteddfod on Sunday afternoon. The concert begins at 5.30pm in Gonzaga Barry Lecture Theatre.

 

Kind regards

Antoinette De Pinto
Head of Primary

 

NEWSFLASH:  COMFY DRESS DAY

LifeLink raises funds to assist the work of social service agencies provided by the Archdiocese of Perth. LifeLink agencies reach out to many West Australians in need each year providing shelter, food, job training, family support and other care.

 

On Friday, 30 June we are having a 'comfy dress day' in the Primary School to raise funds for Archbishop Costelloe's LifeLink Appeal. On this day students can wear comfy clothes to school, such as, PJ's, slippers, tracksuits, onesies, etc.

 

A gold coin donation would be greatly appreciated and will be collected by our Year 6 student leaders on the day. We will also be collecting foods to provide warmth and comfort to families in need. Examples includes, tin soup, milo, coffee, etc.

 

Thank you for supporting this worthy appeal. Together, we can make a difference to help others feel comfy in these Winter months.

 

Olympic Day

 

Olympic Day is celebrated nationally, each year, on the 23 June. The students from Year 3 and 4 were lucky enough to meet and listen to the inspirational speeches from four of our very own West Australian Olympians. Today we met:

  • Natalie Burton who represented Australia at the 2016 Rio Olympics for Basketball
  • Danielle Kettlewell and Amie Thompson who represented Australia at the 2016 Rio Olympics for Synchronised Swimming
  • Jesse Phillips who represented Australia at the 2012 London Olympics for Kayak Sprint\

They each had interesting stories about their journey to an Olympic level: however, all had a similar message. We heard Jesse say, “You are unique individuals and have your own special powers”. Danielle and Amie said, “Find something you love, set a goal and be ready to work hard”. Natalie explained that you should “Never think you’re not good enough”.

We have all walked away with a clear message that we need to put in a 100% to reach our goals, never give up and practice makes progress!

STEM

The Year 5s have been at it again with their Science experiments! This time, we explored the concept of liquid viscosity. We learnt that viscosity is the property of a liquid that describes how fast or slowly it will flow. Another way to understand this fancy term is to think about how thin or thick a liquid is. Liquids with low viscosity, like water, are thin and flow quickly. On the other hand, liquids with high viscosity, like peanut butter (yes, it’s a liquid!) are thick and flow slowly. To discover more about this new concept, we put our learning into action and timed how long it took a variety of liquids to slide down an incline and past the finish line. So, what did we find? Out of olive oil, sunflower oil, honey, maple syrup, golden syrup, cream, rubbing alcohol, dish washing liquid and water, which flowed the fastest and which the slowest? You’ll have to wait until next week to hear about our results!

 

Confirmation Retreat Reflections

 

On Tuesday the Year 6s had a Confirmation retreat in the Osborne Room. We were met by a man named Karl and his assistant, Bridgette. We were divided into 6 groups of around 10 people per group and played lots of entertaining games to win points for our groups. I was in Group 5. All the groups were desperate to win, as the prize for the group with the most points was a bag of Freddo Frogs. When we started talking about Confirmation, we discussed gifts and were asked to share the best and worst gifts that we had ever received. In the next session, after recess and until lunch, we talked about the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and played a few more games. In the final half of the session, we traced around the smallest person on a sheet of paper and on the inside wrote how we can show the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. In the final session, we talked about the Fruits of the Holy Spirit and then had a nice time for reflection in the Chapel. We wrote a prayer from our hearts and some students shared their Prayers of the Faithful. We then came back to play some final games and it was announced that Group 2 were the winners of the Freddo Frogs. It was a wonderful experience!

I really enjoyed the engaging and fun Confirmation retreat the Year 6’s participated in on 20 June 2017. During this incredible day we were educated on the sacrament of Confirmation. However throughout, we played fun and captivating games such as, paper, scissors, rock EXTREME, elephant, ninja, cobra and catch the finger. We learnt many important things about Confirmation, including the Fruits of the Holy Spirit, the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and what they mean to us in our daily life. I really do hope we do it again soon!

-  Sophia Defrancesco (6B)

 

On 20 June the Year 6 cohort got to experience a Confirmation retreat day. There was lots of enjoyable games and activities that we got to play like including paper scissors rock. The day definitely helped us extend our religious learning ability and strengthened our relationship with God. The two presenters were very enthusiastic which made all of us as students want to listen and learn. It helped me and many other students put in to perspective how easy it is to show the Gifts and the Fruits of the Holy Spirit and how we should apply them into our everyday life. Making the whole day a competition made it even better and made us want to hear more about Confirmation. As well as having an exciting time, we also got to use the Chapel as a calm place to write prayers for whoever or whatever we wanted. Overall, I extremely liked the fun yet relaxing day and would certainly do it again.

-  Marshall Lalor (6G)

 

I really enjoyed the Confirmation retreat. It was fun because we weren't just learning things but we were playing games too. We learnt about things like the Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Spirit. We also did fun activities that educated us about many different things like how to show the Gifts and Fruits in our everyday lives. My favourite activity was definitely the prayer time. It was a great way to end the day because it was reverent and made you think about things you wouldn't usually do in our busy lives. It made us stop and think about things we need help with, to talk to God privately. We then had a little Prayers of the Faithful part from the Mass where people shared prayers and reflected on different things.

-  Amerie Chai (6G)

 

Congratulations to all our Award Recipients on your wonderful performances.

Year 10 Pathways

This is an important time for Year 10 students as they deliberate over course selections and pathways for 2018. There are two very important events on Wednesday 28 June. The Year 10 Day of Competence (for students) and the Year 10 Course Selection Evening (for parents). During the day, students will hear from a variety of guest speakers and will take part in seminars designed to inform and enthuse them about all the possibilities that lie ahead.  It is imperative that all students are present on the day, punctual and in full school uniform.  The Year 10 Course Selection Evening for parents will also be held on Wednesday 28 June at 7:00pm in the Gonzaga Barry Lecture Theatre.

 

I strongly encourage all parents to attend this important event as it will enable you to assist your son or daughter in an informed way with their decisions about pathways and courses. I look forward to meeting you and assisting with any queries or concerns you may have.

Year 7 Retreat Day

This week the Year 7 students experienced their first secondary school retreat. The day began with Mass celebrated by Fr Joseph Sobb SJ, who reminded the students of the example of St Louis in Christian service. For the rest of the day the Faith Retreats team took the students on a ‘spiritual workout’, combining highly energetic activities, with input on how we can all develop spiritually and times of personal reflection and prayer.

Year 12 Politics and Law Excursion

On Wednesday of this week the Year 12 Politics and Law class had an excursion to various law courts in the central city area and then on to Parliament House. They were lucky enough to be able to go into the almost new David Malcolm Justice Centre where they sat in on a civil case involving one of Clive Palmer’s companies. They then sat in on an arson trial in the Supreme Court as well as a sentencing in the case of a “machete wielding burglar”. Interestingly, this person was sentenced to home detention with an ankle bracelet.

In the afternoon the group went to Parliament House. The premier, Mark McGowan spoke to them briefly as did a number of ministers. They were also able to watch Question Time – as always, it was a very spirited occasion.

 

Thanks to Ms Daisy Farley and Mr Chris Laurino (student teacher) for accompanying the class on the excursion.

Year 11

The Year 11 students participated in their Id Quod Volo Leadership Day with their Homeroom Teacher and House Coordinator on Monday 12 June. Id Quod Volo is Latin for "that which I desire" and the day marks the start of the journey towards student leadership in 2018. Each House travelled to a different venue to further develop skills in the areas of leadership, teamwork, communication, service and reflection. The day's activities also focussed upon the nature of the various leadership positions and the criteria and process for nomination. Students will take the next four weeks to discern whether they will nominate for a formal leadership position in Year 12. Thank you to the House Coordinators for developing such positive and interesting itineraries.

 

The Year 11 Supper Dance concluded Week 8. Held at the Bendat Basketball Stadium, the theme for the evening was ‘Enchanted Garden’. The students looked amazing and the decorations organised by Mr Del Pizzo and Mr Jansen added a real ‘wow’ factor.

The venue staff made a point of mentioning how impressed they were with the calibre of students in attendance. Thank you to the Student Representative Council and in particular, Jasmine Willson and Molly Urwin, the Event Captains, for the hard work and organisation that went into ensuring the night was a success. Thank you also to the staff in attendance.

Seek Justice

Detention For Detention

This week we joined with the Catholic Alliance for People Seeking Asylum (CAPSA) to express our support and solidarity for refugees and people seeking asylum.

Staff and Students participated in a ‘detention for detention’ lunchtime solidarity action stating that

  • We believe people seeking asylum should be treated compassionately and humanely, as we would want to be treated.
  • We believe in a fast, efficient and fair process that enables people to rebuild their lives and thrive in the community.

Our photos and many others from Catholic schools, parishes and workplaces will be used by CAPSA to explain to our Federal government that as a Catholic community we believe that we can do better as a nation in the treatment of people seeking refuge in our country.

 

We Can Do Better. Evacuate The Camps. Bring Them Here. Refugees Are Welcome.

Pilgrimage Fundraising

We are delighted to announce that we have 41 students and 12 staff members who will be participating in the John XXlll College Pilgrimage program in September this year.

Parish Religions Education Program

St Joseph’s Catholic Parish in Subiaco is currently taking enrolments for our religious educational program for children wanting to make their First Reconciliation and First Communion. The classes commence on Sunday, August 6 at 4:45pm.

 

Parents wishing to enrol their children should contact the parish with their contact details, via the following email address:

[email protected] – and they should include “attn:Bart” in the subject line.

 

Because we experience significant numbers who enquire, we have to give preference to parishioners of St Joseph’s in the first instance.

However, we do make a serious attempt to accommodate as many candidates as we can.

 

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter, as it is a matter of considerable importance in the early life of young Catholic children.
