End Of Term Celebrations

In the last few weeks of the semester very important year level Retreats have been scheduled. The talents of our students have been showcased with Drama Nights, a Music Eisteddfod, Head of the River Rowing, Primary Lightning Carnival and other sporting events. In addition, we have conducted an important Year 10 Day of Competence and Parent Night as students prepare for the next phase of their schooling.

 

Our Calendar attempts to schedule events at appropriate times so that our students and teachers can balance priorities and commitments. However, such a busy calendar does place pressure on our community and I am very grateful for the enthusiastic and spirited cooperation of our students, staff and families.

 

Next week is also NAIDOC week. Given it is scheduled for the school holiday period we have conducted commemoration celebrations this week. A smoking ceremony was led by aboriginal elders and a special assembly was conducted to mark the importance, richness and diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture.

 

We also farewell staff members leaving the College at the end of this semester. We thank them for their contribution to John XXIII College and wish them well for the future:

 

Dr Annette Pedersen (Corpus Christi)

Mrs Maddy Guggisberg (Mater Dei)

Mrs Caroline Cibesku (Parental leave),

 

We also acknowledge Ms Debra Needham, Ms Anita Skelton, Mrs Monica Smokrovic and Mrs Sanja Hogarth as their contractual periods conclude.

Visit By Fr Chris Gleeson SJ 

At the beginning of Semester Two 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

 

Federal Funding 

Following the announcement of the Federal education funding reform policy last week, the Executive Director of Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA) has written to provide assurance to schools with respect to future funding.

 

CEWA’s current federal funding arrangements will remain in place for 2018.  The next 12 months will also provide CEWA as a system with the time to consider how the additional funding provided by the Federal Government will be distributed across the system, meeting the needs of our students.

 

Please refer to the following link for specific details…

 

Autumn Mornings Video
 

 

If you haven’t already noticed, we have recently posted a new video on the John XXIII Facebook page.  The Autumn Mornings video is another lovely way to celebrate our 40th Anniversary and to reflect, with some nostalgia, upon the memories that have been created here.  We also look forward to a bright future upon this wonderful campus that we share. Please watch, enjoy, like and share.

 

Together, let us seek justice.

 

Yours sincerely

STEM

Over the last two weeks all Year Three students have been involved in an exciting STEM project. This project has challenged them with new learning in various areas of the curriculum. Full of enthusiasm, the students met with Mrs Holly and her team of students from ECU to design and build a rocket. The big launch took place this week as the students gathered on the top oval to put their rockets to the test. Amongst all the fun and learning it was evident there was a sprinkle of competitiveness amongst students when it came to the big launch!

Science Fair

Today our Year 6’s held a Science Fair. In groups the students displayed experiments on the states of matter. Year 5 students visited the displays to learn about how states of matter interact. The year 6 students prepared individual written scientific reports. They were also assessed as a group, on the visual appeal of their display stands, the associated posters, interactive activities and knowledge of their presented topic.

 

Teddy Bear Day!

During Term 3 the Kindy children have been reading and telling stories about ‘The Three Bears’. On Thursday each child brought along one of their favourite teddies from home for a Teddy Bear day in Kindy.

 

The children had such a great time dancing, singing and playing games with their teddies. They decorated some delicious biscuits for a morning tea treat. They made teddy bear ears, painted their faces and measured their teddies with blocks.  By the end of the day there were many ‘tired little teddy bears’ in Kindy.

IPSHA Winter Lightning Carnival

Last week we hosted the IPSHA Winter Lightning Carnival. With over 400 students from ten IPSHA schools, all the oval spaces were filled with competitors engaged in either Soccer, Hockey, Netball or AFL games.

 

About fifty, Year 9 and Year 10 students from the College umpired the various games and they did a terrific job. All Saints College managed to win (the only sport where scores were kept) ”The Eagles Cup.” Our footy team tried extremely hard and were unlucky not to finish higher up the ladder. The players from our netball, soccer and hockey teams all acquitted themselves very well and were highly competitive.

 

It was a fantastic Carnival and one that fosters great competition, maximum participation and sportsmanship amongst many schools. Congratulations all our Year 6 and some Year 5 students for their efforts on the day. Thanks also goes to our Primary Staff, Mr Dustin Fromm (AFL coach), Mrs Sonja Goss (Netball), Miss Claire Dernie (Hockey) and Mrs Lisa Taylor and Miss Ruth O’Donnell (Soccer.) Sincere thanks to the Grounds and Maintenance team for their great support, Di and the Canteen staff , the Year 6 Coordinators, Sam Margaria and Lizzie Eastwood and all the parent helpers for the magnificent catering on the day.

MAGIS

There have been many exciting opportunities offered through the College Magis program this semester. Year 7 Magis students have been busy with an elective subject, as have Year 8 Magis students. Both year groups presented their research projects in an afternoon tea in the Library on Wednesday afternoon. There has been a special maths extension offered in Year 9 with a link to astronomy through the University of Western Australia. Our students have been successful in Mock Trials and Debating, with our Magis Debating team travelling to St Ignatius College, Adelaide on 2 July to compete in the Jesuit Schools’ Debating Carnival. A small group of Year 10 students spent a fascinating day at Harry Perkins Medical Institute learning about cancer cells. The annual Year 6 Art and Philosophy day was held at the Art Gallery of Western Australia where students from over 30 primary schools explored philosophy with a program initiated by our College. Tournament of Minds is well under way and the Robotics Club has been meeting regularly. The Astronomy and Philosophy Clubs have also met regularly and on 22 June the Magis Carnival was held luring students from seven Catholic schools to discuss complex philosophical ideas such as: “Agriculture is a mechanised food industry divorced from nature”.  Students finished the evening contemplating the nature of reality in a social media saturated world.

 

Dr Annette Pedersen

Head of Magis and Ignatius Centre Learning Areas,

Year 8 News

Year 8 students have had a busy end to Semester One. There was great support for LifeLink which was established by the Archdiocese of Perth and supports agencies that reach out to help more than 34,000 Western Australians every year. All Year 8 Homerooms collected money and goods for donation and Campion House also held a very successful Bake Sale. Year 8s raised over $800.00 which was a great effort! Well done to the Student Leaders that drove the initiative.

 

The Year 8 Magis group presented their research to parents and friends. People could walk around and ask the students questions about their research findings. Some very interesting presentations indeed!

 

Year 8s were also fortunate to experience FLYBZ.  Fablice a.k.a FLYBZ, continues to be an amazing Ambassador for ‘Jesuit Social Services’, speaking, rapping and performing at more than 50 schools around Australia about the hardship of being a former refugee and child soldier and his ''joy'' at arriving in ''paradise'' Australia. Student loved listening to his story of survival in the civil war that affected both his homeland of Burundi in East Africa and Rwanda. He was orphaned at 8 and by 11 he was given a gun and trained to be a child solider. Fablice has also toured East Timor, where he appeared at the new Jesuit school at Kasait. He was honoured with being awarded the Victorian Young Achiever of The Year. This is an amazing achievement and the first for a young Burundian.

 

I wish everyone a safe and restful break and have encouraged all Year 8s to set some personal goals for Semester Two.

Assistant Deputy Principal – Year 8

Year 9 Social

 

The Year 9 Social was a great time to have fun with friends especially as it was the last week of school. Everyone looked really great all dressed up in their clothes to suit the vintage/ op-shop theme and all the decorations set up by the SRC really brought the exhibition centre to life. The smoke machine, the lights and the DJ music provided ‘mood’ to the evening. It was awesome to dance with friends, eat and play some games. People brought their best moves, singing voices and even limbo skills to the party to share a few laughs and make the social one to remember! Everyone joined in, including the SRC and teachers, and it was a fun way to interact with the whole year out of school hours, and was an exciting way to end Term Two.

 

Jas Collins

FLYBZ

On Wednesday, we were payed a visit by the incredibly inspirational Fablice Manirakiza also known as FLYBZ. He came to speak with our students about how young people can really make a difference in the world. FLYBZ grew up in a small African country called Burundi where civil war had broken out. He was orphaned at the age of eight and abducted to become a child soldier at the age of eleven. He eventually escaped Burundi and lived in a refugee camp where he was after a lot of hard work was able to get to Australia for a new life.

 

 

He is now a well-known Rapper who raps for peace and love. He has sold many singles performed with many famous artists such as Paul Kelly. Despite all FLYBZ has been through in his life he still has retained a positive outlook on life which he is looking to teach many young people about. He taught us to treat one another as we would like to be treated and that our generation is going to be the generation for change. After telling us his life story the fun came when he got the whole crowd involved with his music deeming John XXIII College the most enthusiastic crowd he has had yet. The students all thoroughly enjoyed listening, dancing and singing along with FLYBZ and we all cannot wait until he comes back next year.

Debating

Debating has been one of the best experiences that I have had the chance to be a part of since coming to John XXIII College in Year 7. It is a co-curricular activity that is available to all students in the secondary school.   We meet on Monday after school in X15 where we brainstorm ideas on the topic we will be debating. We generally get two training sessions in before we present our debate at Christchurch against various schools from the region including St Hilda’s, MLC and of course Christchurch among others.

 

In each debate we know who we will be competing against prior to the debate itself and what we will be arguing for or against, unless you are doing impromptu, which is on the spot debating. Our teams have had to debate on a range of topics, some of these being; whether we should introduce a no body, no parole rule, whether we should or should not tolerate civil disobedience, if religious charities are doing more harm than good in developing countries, and if we should regret the role of celebrities in the 2016 US presidential election.

 

Each topic has been a challenge and each team has persevered each time.   We have developed strong bonds with our team mates and have even found new friends. We are proud to say that despite it being the first year for our Year 9s they have performed very well, with each team winning at least one debate and it is fair to say that they have improved astronomically. Of course none of this would be possible without the help of both Ms Wooltorton who organises training, afternoon tea, extra practises and anything else that comes up, and our wonderful coaches  Anna and Will. Both Anna and Will are John XXIII Alumni who give up their time to help us.  It is because of them that we have not only improved our skills at debating, but we have also developed lifelong skills, varying from good sportsmanship to general politeness.

 

Debating has been a wonderful experience for not only me, but for my team mates as well.  I would strongly recommend it to anyone who is up for some fun!

House News

St Louis Day

Yesterday St Louis students celebrated their House Day at John XXIII College. Over the past week we have been reflecting on the life of our patron St Aloysius Gonzaga. This included a quiz on St Louis during homeroom, with Year 12 proving the most knowledgeable, just ahead of Year 9.

 

On St Louis Day we shared a lunch in the TMEC. We also celebrated some of the outstanding contributions from St Louis students so far this year. Homeroom teachers and other House staff were asked to put forward the names of students who had made an extra effort in regards to Homeroom time or House spirit.

 

The following students were awarded a St Louis award:

 

Year 7                                    Year 8                                                Year 9           

Emily McAuliffe                  Alexandria Henderson              Sophie Manners     

Jacob Raj                              Anastasia Arto                              Reuben Patchett     

 

Year 10                                 Year 11                                             Year 12

Amy Exten                          Isabella Corompt                          Sophie Mather

Lochie Lafferty                 Sebastian Guerrera                      Matthew Lloyd

 

Sixteen students and three staff were also involved in cooking meals for Shopfront after school. Lots of fun was had and hopefully the meals prove to be delicious. The celebration culminated today with a special focus at the Community Mass on Saint Aloysius Gonzaga and St Louis students were involved in the Mass.

 

It was a pleasure to see all students involved and enthusiastic in our House day celebration. A special mention must be made of the House staff and our various student leaders for their help in organising the day.

Youth Summit.
 

Olivia Purnell, Lachlan Bywater, Kinia O’Brien and Ceri Ellis were chosen to represent the College at the Catholic Education Youth Summit held at Notre Dame University on Tuesday.

 

The theme of the day was taken from Pope Francis address to young people around the world to ‘get off the couch’ and ‘set out on new and unchartered paths’ to be a positive influence in our world today.

Students participated in a range of workshops encouraging them to think about how they can be servant leaders as modelled by Jesus.

 

“It was a really inspiring day, full of amazing presenters, incredible stories of faith and practical activities that helped want to serve others. It was great being able to meet other students from all over WA. The Youth Summit was a very positive experience with a strong message of hope.”

-  Kinia O’Brien

NAIDOC Week
 

On Wednesday, we celebrated NAIDOC week early. The day provided us with an opportunity to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and society.

 

Betty Garlett lead us in a Welcome to Country and Smoking ceremony at 8am and we were fortunate to have the Wadumbah Aboriginal Dance group perform at our assembly.

Health

School Meningococcal ACWY Program

A vaccination to protect against Meningococcal strains A, C, W and Y will be offered to 15-19 year olds. The program will provide immunisations in school to Year 10, 11, and 12 students.

 

Some of the highest rates of meningococcal carriage and illness occur among 15-19 year olds and this age group can transmit the bacteria to people who are at increased risk of infection, including young children. The rationale for vaccinating 15-19 year olds is to both decrease illness from meningococcal W in this age group and to prevent carriage. Reducing carriage in this age group will reduce transmission of the bacteria to others and help prevent infections within the larger community.

 

Students in years 10 and 11 will be vaccinated on Wednesday 9 August.

 

Attached is a Consent form and information sheet. Hard copy consent forms will also be sent home with your child closer to the date of vaccination.

 

Could your child please return completed consent forms by Monday 31 July.

 

Thankyou

Year 12 Meningococcal Vaccine Catch-up

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.
