Principal's Report

Principal's Report

This week our Gospel comes from Luke (15:1-32); Jesus gives us three parables; the lost sheep, the lost coin and the lost son. In each Jesus is calling us to celebrate the act of forgiveness. We know that when we are free of anger and resentment we are much more open to living a life that is joyful and fulfilling. This week at our assembly I spoke to the students of the need to ensure they think of people to whom they are grateful, gratitude is a very positive emotion and character strength and enables us all to see beyond our own small worlds. When we express gratitude and forgiveness we are acting as Jesus teaches us and we are making sure we are not consumed by the negative emotions of resentment or anger. 

 

As the term draws to a close I also spoke to the students about the fact that so many of them are tired...we reflected on how being tired can be something to be proud of as it generally means that we have worked hard and have pushed to be the best version of ourselves. After listening to all of the wonderful conversations taking place at the student learning conversations last night I can truly say that the students at Killester are being challenged in ways that have pushed them...and at times made them weary. I hope the upcoming holiday provides most students with an opportunity for rest and relaxation. However for our Year 12 students completing VCE the upcoming break is one full of hard work as they sit their trial exams. We wish them the best of luck as they embark on this vital preparation.

 

Our NAPLAN results were released last week and, whilst we have yet to do a highly detailed analysis of our data, we can once again be incredibly proud of our NAPLAN results which show our achievement to be outstanding. We will look further into the data and release a more detailed report in Term Four. 

 

As this will be the last newsletter for the term I would like to thank all of the staff, students and parents at Killester who have made me feel so welcome. I sincerely hope each and every member of our community has the opportunity for rest and rejuvenation over the September break, even our VCE students who will be undertaking practice exams need some down time over this upcoming break.

Prayer

and make my spirit soar.

Amen

Out and About......

Last week a number of us from the Leadership Team attended the Annual Conference for Catholic Deputy Principals. Father Kevin Dillon, who is Parish Priest at St Simon's in Rowville (so he may be known to some of our families), spoke of the many pastoral support activities he has been involved with and was extremely humble and inspiring when speaking of those who have been helped.  We were certainly energised by Kieran Flanagan, who is the co-founder of a strategic think-tank that helps organisations make change. She is a dynamic speaker and motivator.  It was a wonderful opportunity to catch up with some of the wonderful things Catholic secondary schools are doing in Victoria.

 

A reminder that Term 4 commences on MONDAY October 7th. Students need to wear the full summer uniform, which includes the blazer.  Day 2 of Term, Tuesday 8th October, is photo day for school teams. 

 

As the Year 12s commence their trial exams, we wish them well. There will be numerous celebrations with them in Term 4 as they complete their time at Killester.    Best wishes to everyone for a relaxing holiday period.

Naplan 2019

In Term 2 Killester College continued as one of the schools to be part of the pilot program to take NAPLAN testing into the digital age and online.  

 

Over a five day period students in Year 7 and Year 9 were amongst the nearly 50% of schools to complete NAPLAN tests in the areas of Reading, Writing, Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation and Numeracy as online tests.

 

Unlike the previous paper tests, which many schools still completed in 2019, the online testing is a form of adaptive testing. This means that as students progress through the test they are directed to questions of varying difficulty depending upon their response to the previous questions. This will allow students, parents and teachers a much clearer picture of the current capacity of our students to attain particular standards in literacy and numeracy.

 

Results of the tests completed in 2019 were received from ACARA last week.  Again, Killester College has achieved results of which we can be proud. Growth reports indicate that in the areas of Reading, Writing, Spelling and Grammar, our students continue to grow and perform well above the national average. Specialised programs in Literacy in Years 7-9 have resulted in our students making significant gains in the areas of Spelling and Writing, with our mean scores being significantly higher than the state. Similarly, Killester College students continued to achieve above the state mean in the area of Numeracy.

 

Individual student results have been sent by post directly to parents/guardians at the most recent address supplied.

Year 7 Parents Morning Tea

We were delighted to meet with about 20 Year 7 parents at a morning tea held on Tues 3rd September.

The purpose was to reflect on the Year 7 year so far and provide feedback to the school on how the girls were travelling at this stage of their first year at Secondary school.

 

Two Year 7 leaders: Sabelle Luong - Sports Leader and Naychi Soemoe - Community Service Leader, provided their version of how the year had gone. They talked about homework, their daily routine, the various activities they had participated in and also their changing friendship groups.  Parents were able to question them on some of these comments and explore some other issues such as computer use and practices. They felt their daughters were now more confident and independent in Year 7 compared to Grade 6.  

 

They discussed computer issues with Amy Nguyen from IT talking about school policy and operations of the apple macs.  Parents were interested in the possible uniform changes that have been discussed in term 3 and are waiting the outcome of these discussions. One other issue was how to keep up with the number of activities that were available each week.  Parents were reminded about the student learning conversations scheduled for 12th Sep and encouraged to attend with their daughters. Parents who had attended the Susan McLean Cybersafety session were keen for her to be invited to speak to the Year 7 students. This will occur in Term 4.

 

At the conclusion of our discussions Parents enjoyed visiting the Year 7 classes to observe their daughters working through their scheduled lessons.

Killester Homelessness Sleepout

On the 29th of August, approximately 25 senior students gathered in the hall to raise awareness for homelessness. Upon arriving we set up chairs and tables and continued to play various ice breaker games. We then got partners from different year levels and discussed a variety of topics ranging from, what would you do with a magic wand that could do anything? to What are some methods the government could use to improve homelessness? We then read aloud some statements about homelessness and choosing whether we agreed, disagreed, or were neutral, sparking discussion on what is happening, what we would do and what the government should be doing. After this, we went on a walk around the school lead by Mr O'Neil, where we scouted out warm places we could sleep. As well as learning where a homeless family actually camped out for many weeks. After this, it was a rush back to the hall to grab sleeping bags as we all ran to find a warm place outside to sleep for 20 minutes. For many of us, it was a first experience sleeping rough and allowed us to try and find some understanding, to what it would actually be like if we had to do that every night. Then it was back to the hall where we ate simple soup and bread. Followed by this were a quiz and short video on the homelessness crisis and what is being done, and some simple statistics. Then it was time to roll out the gymnastics mats and got into our sleeping bags ready for bed, with the movie the Pursuit of Happyness. In the morning we ate some egg and bacon wraps and got ready for the school day, ready for a day spent in our pj's. It was a successful night that raised $300.50 for our chosen charity while also bringing some awareness to homelessness in Australia.

Access Monash - Mentoring Program

 

Access Monash is a great program that sets challenges for students that aren't afraid to reach for the sky. It is a program guided by Monash University mentors, to teach selected Killester students about leadership and life after high school. In this developing project, we had to build our research and presentation skills, to enable our group to create and deliver an engaging, interactive and informative project. Once the research and our project about tertiary education was completed, we presented it to our year level and the school community. At the end of the program, Presentation Day gave us an opportunity to reflect on our project to an audience that included our school community, the Monash Access team, the Monash University community and other schools.

 

Over the course of three months, we discovered many things. Our Project findings included learning about the four different forms of tertiary education: University, TAFE, Independent Colleges and apprenticeships, and considered where we may like to go after secondary school.


Because of this opportunity, we were able to present in front of our year level. We, all from Killester College, enjoyed this experience. We have gained so much from this project and we have widened our minds to new-found knowledge.

Year 10 Work Experience

From the 2nd - 6th of September all Yr 10 students got to do a week-long work experience placement and I was fortunate enough to get to do mine at the Bureau of Meteorology. My experience was incredibly interesting and unique; in the very best way. 

 

Throughout the five day period, I learned a lot about the different occupations one can have in the Bureau, and  gained a lot of knowledge that I most certainly did not have prior to the experience. I got the opportunity to learn about the most fascinating things, — from what it looks like to monitor volcanic ash levels, to everything about marine, aviation and extreme weather job positions, as well as hydrology and how to use McIDAS software to create weather forecasting radars on my very own. I also learned a bit of coding when in the computing sciences area, and how to collate large amounts of data when in the water and accounting regulations area too.

 

I particularly liked spending time in the National Operations Area, and also going to the training centre in Broadmeadows, where I got the chance to witness firsthand the launch of an ozone hydrogen balloon test - by actually being a part of the launching process myself, which was very exciting. I met people from all walks of life; some from Melbourne, some from interstate, and I even met someone who worked in America for NASA. I learned a lot about myself by doing this placement as well, which will definitely help me in future employment, and I found the Bureau of Meteorology to be a very welcoming environment for me. I would highly recommend it to future work experience students, it is a very rewarding experience regardless of what your aspirations may be. 

 

My general feeling about my work experience week with the Bureau is that it was an absolute blast and completely out of this world; I enjoyed every minute of it!

Olympic Change-Makers
 

 

As nominees of the 2019 Olympic Change-Maker Award, both of us girls had the opportunity to attend a state forum at Victoria University on the 3rd of September.   This year's theme was ‘change’ and involved the idea of driving positive social change within the school and local community by demonstrating leadership through sport and using sport as a vehicle to improve health and well-being.  

 

Along with 100 students from various schools across Victoria, we were lucky enough to listen to  star Olympic medalists, such as Annabelle Smith, Greta Small, Koti Ngawati as well as Olympic gold medalist, Steve Hooker! Listening to the various athletes speak about their challenges faced within their past and current sporting career allowed us to take away the important message that anyone can make a dream turn into a reality with hard work, determination and positive spirit.   

 

We would both like to thank Killester for giving us such an amazing opportunity, which we will forever treasure!

National HEPE Day 

On Thursday the 5th of September Killester College celebrated National HEPE day. This Nationally recognised day actually occurs on Thursday 12th of September, but due to parent teacher interviews we decided to celebrate early. This day highlights the importance of health and physical activity within the curriculum. The National Physical activity guidelines state that both teenagers and adults should be active for at least 60 minutes per day. Having HEPE in the curriculum helps to assist students achieve these activity goals.   To celebrate this day, staff completed a walk at 7.45am as a way to be active before classes. At recess time, free fruit such as apples, mandarins and bananas were given out to students. 

 

Students were encouraged to be active in classes such as Math, Language, Science, English, Technology and Art etc.  Students were involved in activities such as aerobics, star-jumps, wall sits, running on the spot and throwing tennis balls that staff received at the beginning of the day. At lunch time, we had three fantastic Zumba instructors come in to hold a class for any students or teachers who were willing to participate. We also received free t-shirts and more fruit for those who participated in the Zumba class.  

 

Overall it was a great day, the sun was shining and it was amazing to see so many people being active and participating in the several activities that were held. Thanks to everyone for their participation and support.

Year 9 Italian Excursion

On Friday 6th of September, students in Year 9 studying Italian were given the wonderful opportunity to explore Lygon Street, located in Carlton and Mediterranean Wholesalers in Brunswick. We were given a booklet that contained questions. We searched for locations in Lygon Street and products in the supermarket that would give us clues in order to answer all our questions.

 

 

In Lygon Street, we discovered that there was a large Italian influence over many of the restaurants, cafes, and shops. We learned that University Cafe was opened in 1950, making it one of the oldest “Espresso Bars” in Melbourne. After answering all the relevant questions, we were given some time to explore some more or roam around to purchase anything that we wanted to.

 

After finishing off at Lygon Street, we arrived at Mediterranean Wholesalers, a supermarket offering an enormous variety of Italian products. We found a lot of imported items from Italy such as cured meats, vegetables, pasta, candied fruits, cheeses, biscuits, cleaning products, household products and beverages. We even found squid ink pasta! Amazing!!

 

Upon leaving the store, we were each given a pack of delicious wafers by the welcoming staff at the supermarket.  A huge thank you to Ms Gallo, Ms Urban, Ms Diep and Ms Timlin for organising and accompanying us on the excursion.

Year 9 Indonesian Excursion

 

On Friday the 6th of September, the year 9 Indonesian class participated in an all day incursion about Indonesia. Activities on this incursion included dancing, dressing up, cooking and viewing an Indonesian film. My class watched a film called ‘Single’; a movie about an Indonesian boy named Ebi who struggles to find love. Eventually he meets a girl named Angel and they develop a close friendship and fall in love. 

 

We were taught an Indonesian dance by Ibu Maria who is from the Indonesian island of Java. Her Indonesian dance was beautiful and we all had lots of fun learning traditional Indonesian movements using our hands and fingers. Ibu Maria also brought traditional Indonesian garments for us to wear. I had the opportunity to wear a white scarf with golden sparkles. At the end of the session, Ibu Maria performed a dance for us. Her movements were inspired by peacocks. She wore a red outfit with a flowery peacock headpiece and cape-like wings. I thought the dance was very impressive as it represented the importance of animals such as the peacock in influencing traditional Indonesian style of dancing.

 

Another activity that we participated in was Indonesian cooking. We used Ibu Cosentino’s recipe and cooked Mie goreng tempeh. We used ingredients such as tempeh, noodles, garlic, onions and asian vegetables such as wombok and spring onions. We also added Kecap manis (sweet soy sauce) that is very popular and used daily in Indonesian cooking. In the end, the Mie goreng that I made tasted very delicious. It was the first time that I’ve eaten  tempeh (soy beans) and I really enjoyed the taste and texture. We served the mie goreng with Krupuk udang (prawn crackers).

Melbourne Spring Fashion Week 
 

 

On Wednesday the 5th of September, Year 11 and 12 Vet VCE students attended one of the many Melbourne Fashion Week events. The fashion students were in the audience of the Thursday Night fashion show held at the Melbourne Town Hall. The focus of this collection was evening wear by some of Australia’ forefront designers. These included collections by Calibre, Carla Zampatti, Dom Bagnato, Gibson, Jason Grech, Joe Black, LEO & LIN, Nicola Finetti and Still Still Studio.  

 

This was an aspirational evening wear show featuring established Australian artisans, designers and tailors.  Designers showcased their intricate hand-embellished designs for modern event wear, suiting and bridal. The students were also treated to a performance by the D.J. Confidence Man.  Luckily the rain held off and the very luxurious designs and colours of the show soon warmed us up.  The students were very inspired and impressed by the parade and it has given them new momentum to complete garments for our Fashion show to be held on the 18th of October at the Art Technology Exhibition.  The Fashion parade will showcase students’ work will be on Friday the 18th of October from 7pm to 9 pm. Keep this date free for this glamorous event.
