Principal’s Reflection

The Gospel reading for last Sunday (14 August) was Luke 12:49 - 53. The scriptures are inspired by the Holy Spirit and they come out of the lived experience of a community of faith. Luke’s Gospel is an excellent example of this lived experience. Jesus predicts that one of the consequences of believing in him is that divisions will follow. We can tell from the whole text of Luke’s Gospel that these divisions were certainly part of the earliest Christian community.

What is comforting about this Gospel is that it recognises conflict as a necessary part of Christian life. However, disagreement needs to be conducted with charity, dignity, careful listening and compassion.

Secular newspapers and other media outlets make some of their profits through the publicising of news and information that raises fear in the minds of readers. Such news gets people’s attention. It has always been so and God’s Prophets such as Jeremiah suffered for their publicising of difficult news. The difference between our secular ‘prophets’ and God’s Prophets is that one preaches what is thought humans want to hear and the others what God wants humans to hear. Jesus understood that his God-given message, even though it is Good News, would be a source of division; that, like the prophets before him, he would be rejected by the ‘powers that be’ both secular and religious.

Jesus was right. Conflict is definitely part of the package. The peace Jesus brings isn’t a calm in which no-one gets angry. Jesus makes it clear he stands for the peace that can only come when all people find a respect and justice. But the people who call others to respect all people and to live justly – hopefully you and me – quite often sparks conflict.

Conflict is part of the deal for Christians. But the Lord has been through it and won’t leave us in “the lurch”.

Congratulations

Sandi Davis (Year 12) - Won the Under 18 Junior Surf Life Saver of the Year Award. Sandi beat a strong field of contenders in a hotly contested field to win the award.

Darcy Emery has had excellent results this year and has qualified to compete at the Australian Show Jumping Championships from the 15 to 18 September.

Indiana Anderson has a News Mail article coming out soon, detailing her achievements as part of the Queensland Young Rider Squad for Dressage.

Collection of Students

It has been reported to me that some parents are parking in the cemetery to collect their sons and/or daughters. Can I please ask that you do not do this as there are people visiting loved one’s graves and they are finding the collection of students quite disrespectful? I would really appreciate your support on this matter.

eSafety Presentation

The Year 8 and Year 9 students attended this presentation last Monday afternoon. Quite a number of issues were raised in the presentation so it would be worthwhile having a discussion with your son or daughter on what was presented…particularly around what they post (types of photos); sending images on and so on. Cyberbullying was also raised.

Catholic Music Festival

Congratulations to everyone involved over the weekend. It certainly was a weekend filled with great musical talent. The results for Shalom are as follows:

Gold award - Choir, Symphony Orchestra, Thursday Morning Band, Senior Concert Band and Rochford Strings.

Silver award - Senior Jazz Band, Chamber Strings, Vocal Ensemble.

Bronze Award - Intermediate Jazz Band.

Have a great week.

Acting Principal

Curriculum Notes

QCS Test

Our Year 12 Students will sit the QCS Test on Tuesday and Wednesday next week. As a community we will have them in our prayers, wish them well and simply ask that they do their best. I would like to thank Mr Maher and his team for the work they have done in preparing our students for this important test.

Parents seeking any additional advice about supporting their child at this time are encouraged to contact me or Mr Maher and to access the resources posted on the Intranet under the ‘QCS Test’ tab.

Please note that all Year 12 Students will be dismissed early on the afternoon of Monday 29 August (next week) at approximately 2:00pm following their final briefing. Note also that all Year 12s (those sitting and those not) will be included in the briefing and the early dismissal.

Selecting Subjects for Years 9 and 10 in 2017

A subject selection information evening for parents of students and students going into Years 9 or 10 in 2017 has been scheduled for tomorrow Tuesday 23 August in the Performing Arts Precinct Theatre. The evening will commence at 6:00pm for parents of current Year 9 students and 7:00pm for parents of current Year 8 students.

The program for the evening will include a brief introduction to further study at Shalom College followed by the opportunity to meet and talk with individual teachers. Specifically, the evening will focus on issues related to the transition from Year 8 into Year 9 and Year 9 into Year 10 and will include elective module selection information. This is the first time that Year 8 students and parents are confronted with a degree of choice about subjects and pathways for future study. For Year 9 students and parents, the evening will focus on issues related to the transition from the Middle School to the Senior School in Year 10.

Learning area coordinators and teachers will be available during the evening to answer specific questions.

An electronic version of the Middle School Subject Selection Booklet 2017 that provides a brief overview of the curriculum to be offered at Shalom College next year has been published on the College website. To access this go to the link below and then login to the Intranet. The booklet is found under the ‘Year 8 into 9 and 9 into 10 Subject Selection Information’ tab. The guide includes basic subject information, a course planner, a stationery list for 2017 and offline subject selection forms. Most students will select their subjects for 2017 online using the WebChoices Student Portal. Subject choices (printed and signed WebChoices receipt) must be submitted by Monday 29 August.

http://www.shalomcollege.com/

I encourage all parents of Year 8 and 9 students to attend this important evening and look forward to meeting with you.

Year 11 and 12 End of Term 3 Examination Timetable

End of Term 3 examinations are scheduled for Year 11 and 12 students from Monday 5 September to Friday 9 September. The examination timetable has been posted on the College Intranet (‘Assessment and Reporting’ tab), the College Website (Curriculum/Senior School/Forms & Publications) and Daily Notices (pushed to students via Student Café). Most students will have at least one examination during the block, some will have quite a number depending on the subjects they study and how assessment is conducted in these subjects. Not all subjects use the examination block.

While most students will have only a few examinations during the examination block which will give them some time in between to prepare, rest and study, others may have up to six examinations during the examination block and even two examinations in the one day. This can contribute to stress levels of all concerned, but the challenges can be managed through planning, prioritising and communication. In particular, students are encouraged to:

  • adopt a systematic approach to the use of the examination timetable and the Record Book where the Annual Planner, Homework/Study Plan and daily Homework entries sections are effectively used to establish a study plan to manage time and prepare emotionally, physically and mentally for examinations (a student responsibility - supported and monitored by parents and teachers);
  • make realistic choices about priorities and expectations that balance family, homework/study, extra-curricular school activities/responsibilities, sports and cultural activities, paid employment and personal/social interests (again, a student responsibility - supported and monitored by parents and teachers); and
  • maintain contact with teachers, especially if things appear to be going wrong or if something unexpected happens that interrupts study plans or affects attendance at examinations (this is what ‘special provision’ is for).

Attendance during examinations

During the examination block all Year 11 and 12 students are deemed to be in attendance but they are only required at school to sit scheduled examinations or to complete supplementary assessments if required. When attending the College during examination blocks students must be in full and correct College day uniform. When not in attendance during the examination block students must be engaged in home study, assignment work or work experience or work placement activities – it is not ‘time off’.

Students have been asked to revise their responsibilities related to examinations and assessment in general outlined on pages 14 to 17 of the Student Record Book. It is particularly important that students who are absent from examinations contact the appropriate House Coordinator immediately. In most cases, supplementary sittings will be required of students who miss scheduled examinations.

Students who have few or no examinations scheduled during the examination block are expected to be engaged in organised Work Experience, Structured Workplace Learning related to VET studies or attendance at a workplace related to an established School-based Apprenticeship or Traineeship. Please contact Mrs O’Donnell on 4155 8136 or at Liza_ODonnell@shalomcollege.com for more information about Work Experience, Structured Workplace Learning or School-based Apprenticeships or Traineeships.

School Review and Improvement Process

Shalom College will be partaking in our five year cyclic School Review and Improvement Process on the 24, 25 and 26 August.

Each Catholic School in the Diocese participates in collaborative review processes to reflect on key areas of the school in order to facilitate ongoing improvement. This ensures that all students have access to a quality education that has at its centre authentic Catholic values, beliefs and practices. As part of these review processes, schools prepare and submit the necessary documentation to maintain government accreditation.

The School Review and Improvement Process invite the participation of all in the College community - staff, students, parents, priests, parish members and the wider community.

Shalom College constantly responds to external pedagogical and community demands. We must be responsive to these pressures but not compromise the mission within the Catholic Church. This process assists us in continually examining our practices to ensure they are aligned with Church expectations and are responsive to the needs of the community. Shalom continues to develop plans that enable us to promote a culture that integrates faith, learning and leadership within a Church community.

Academic Awards Evening

Our Academic Awards Evening for 2016 will be held on Monday 24 October in the Shalom College Sports Centre. Academic awards to be presented on this night include: Subject Prizes, Academic Excellence Awards, Studentship Awards and Special Awards.

Academic Excellence Awards are allocated to students in each year level who have achieved a pre-determined number of ‘A’ standards across the subjects they have studied for the year to the end of Term 3. To be eligible for an Academic Excellence Award the following criteria must be met:

  • Year 7, 8 and 9 students must achieve an ‘A’ in at least one of the 4 core subjects and at least 6 altogether
  • Year 10 students must achieve an ‘A’ in at least one of the 4 core subjects, and at least 5 altogether
  • Year 11 and 12 students must achieve at least 4VHA’s across their subjects

Studentship Awards acknowledge students who have been consistently diligent in their approach to academic studies; who have been active participants in class and who have completed all tasks to the best of their ability. Studentship awards are allocated on the basis of a quantum of nominations received from class teachers. In making their nominations, teachers are asked to specifically identify students who have demonstrated:

  • consistently high academic effort in class throughout the year
  • consistently high application to study and homework
  • an excellent attitude to learning

A studentship award is not an acknowledgement of good behaviour; it is an award that recognises and promotes individual academic excellence.

Subject Prizes are only awarded to Students in Years 10 to 12. All subject prizes for students in Years 10 to 12 are determined by the respective Learning Area Coordinators in consultation with subject teachers.

Special awards include the ‘All Rounder’ Awards (one boy and one girl from each of Years 7, 8 and 9), sponsored awards including the ADF Leadership and Teamwork Awards (Years 10 and 12); the EH & FC Churchward Sugar Cane Technology Award (Year 10); the EH & FC Churchward Sugar Industry Bursary (Year 12); the Ahern Family Bursary (Year 12); the Service to School and Community Award (Year 12); Gladstone Port Authority Bursary (Year 12); the Mayor's Medals (Year 12); the Principal's Award (Year 12) and Dux of the College (Year 12).

Special awards are determined by the Principal in consultation with the College Leadership Team and academic and pastoral coordinators as appropriate.

Japanese

There will be many sad faces at school this week when Asuka Sensei and Harumi Sensei say goodbye to both staff and students. During the past two weeks, students have learnt various topics in Japanese including Summer festivals and playing a traditional game called ‘Suikawari’ (cutting the watermelon), chopstick and food related activities, sports and hobbies and intensive speaking lessons. Asuka and Harumi will return Japan to continue their studies at University after spending the last two weeks here in Bundaberg. They have been volunteering in Japanese classes at Shalom, providing wonderful opportunities for our students to practice their language skills with a native speaker and exchange of culture.

A reminder that Japanese tutoring is available at lunch on Day 8 and Tuesday afternoons by appointment. It is necessary for students that have missed lessons due to other commitments to attend these sessions to complete missed work.

Taking Care of Business

As I write this article Shalom has over 40 students participating in Game 2 of the Australian Stock Exchange Schools Share Market Game. Students will swap their school hat for an investors cap to compete against other schools throughout Australia to see who can make the best investment decisions.

Students have formed trading syndicates with up to four players in each and have received a virtual online share trading account of $50 000.00 which they have to spend on shares. The aim is to trade (buy and sell) shares over the next 10 weeks and see who can make their $50 000.00 grow the most. We look forward to seeing how our teams have performed when the games close on Wednesday 26 October. Good luck everyone, happy investing!

Certificate III in Business

As part of the Year 11 Certificate III in Business qualification, students engage in practical, real life scenarios and the development of a variety of employability skills. This term our learning has focused on innovation, leadership and team effectiveness in a small business situation. In order to put their theoretical knowledge into practice, the students have gone through an ideation process to plan and implement an innovative campaign in support of the R U OK Foundation. We are really proud of the quality and thoughtfulness of the events the students have planned and take pleasure in promoting the following events to you. The below articles have been written by the Year 11 students.

Poster Competition

On Monday 22 August, the R U OK? Mental Health Awareness Week ‘Poster Competition’ will commence for the Junior School. There are two different categories that you can enter your poster into - electronic or hand drawn. Your poster must be on one of the following topics: Discrimination, Anxiety or Cyber Bullying. The due date for poster to be submitted is Friday 9 September. Hand drawn posters must be submitted into the drop box which will be located on Mrs Parker’s desk at Student Reception and electronic posters must be emailed to 520harpbroc@shalomcollege.com .

Cupcake Day

The Year 11 Cert III in Business class has planned a ‘Cupcake Day’ as a part of the R U OK? Foundation awareness campaign. Our goal is to raise money for the worthy Foundation and awareness of mental health issues in our community. If you would like to support the R U OK? Foundation, then bring along $2.00 for a delicious cupcake on Wednesday 31 August to the Markets BBQ area at the first half of lunch. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.

Inspiration Quotes Board

Join us on the Thursday 1 September in the Junior Eating Area at lunch time to help support the R U OK? Foundation Mental Health awareness week. The Certificate III in Business class will have a board where students and teachers can write inspirational quotes or sayings for everyone to view. This is a great opportunity to get involved in the Shalom community and to help contribute to creating more awareness about Mental Health. Can’t wait to see you there.

Keep an eye out on the Daily Notices and check your emails as more information about these events will be communicated throughout the following weeks.

Sports News

Volleyball

Recently Shalom was represented by two teams at the Queensland Volleyball Schools Cup. Thirteen students from Year 10 and 11 travelled to Brisbane for the three-day competition with both teams playing in Division 2 of the 16 Years Boys Competition. Of the twelve teams from all over the state in that division, our Shalom White collected the Bronze Medal and Shalom Black finished in sixth position. All who were associated with the teams, both students and staff, were extremely satisfied with, and proud of, these results. Shalom White only lost one game for the entire competition (a very tight 3-set semi-final against eventual Gold Medallists Caloundra State High School) and Shalom Black only lost their quarter final against Woodcrest State College, who finished as Silver Medallists, in a heartbreaking 16-14point final set. Last year these boys finished Division 3 with a Silver Medal, so the improvement in their play is evident and much-deserved considering the consistently excellent way in which they have applied themselves to training over a sustained period. There is no doubt that a genuine passion for volleyball has developed amongst these students.

Much credit must go to the coach of both teams Mr Paul Arnicar who has devoted much personal time to the students over the last few years. The boys are fully aware of how fortunate they are to have the opportunity to learn from such an accomplished Volleyballer and coach like Paul and are certainly very grateful to him.

The students’ conduct both on and off the court throughout the entire trip was exemplary and it was an absolute pleasure to be associated with such fine ambassadors for Shalom. Next year, Division 1 here we come!

Thank you and congratulations to the 97 students, staff and the NET team members who participated in the eight Shalom teams in the Bundaberg Relay for Life in aid of Cancer Council Queensland at the Bundaberg Recreational Precinct on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 August. The theme of Relay this year was the Olympics, and our adopted country was Japan. Everyone really joined in the spirit among the 89 teams which participated over the 18 hours and raised over $150 000 for Cancer Council Queensland to help in the fight against this terrible disease. Thank you also to the parent helpers and supervisors. You all did Shalom proud.
