Principal’s Reflection

Sadly, again, the threat of terrorism has been very much in the news. The world in which we live is changing and we all have to navigate a path forward as positively as possible. I came across the slide above on Facebook recently and, for obvious reasons, it really resonated. How is it that people can act violently and claim that their motivation is from God? This perversion of religion is not new and Catholicism has its own skeletons in the closet on this issue over previous centuries – happily we have largely grown out of fundamental perversions of faith. If God is not a God of love, there is no point believing. Militant Islam is a perversion of faith and it is having a significant impact on our world and must continually be challenged. In our Church, we have Pope Francis being a sign of hope and claiming regularly that forgiveness and mercy must be the fundamental signs of the Church. But astonishingly, even Pope Francis faces opposition to this message from some highly placed individuals within the Catholic Church. Some still want the Church to focus on who is ‘in’ and who is ‘out’. Not sure what version of the Gospel that they are reading but it is not one with which I am familiar. Faith in a loving God should be evidenced by hope and mercy and inclusiveness. Anything else should be rejected out of hand.

Thank You

I am very grateful to Mrs Austin-Campbell and Mr Knott for filling in for me on the Leadership team of the College for the past four weeks that I have been on leave. I am very happy to be back at Shalom for another very busy Semester.

Student Free Day

Friday 15 September is a Student Free Day which has been added to the calendar. This is the last school day of Term 3 and I ask that you please note it in your calendars.

To assist the teaching staff to prepare for the significant changes that will come with curriculum and assessment changes in Senior schooling in 2019, we will have an in-service day on this day, 15 September.

NAPLAN Data

NAPLAN Data was released last week. Shalom’s data showed pleasing ‘value adding’ for students from Year 7 to Year 9 in the areas of Spelling, Reading, Numeracy, Grammar and Punctuation – the first year this information has been available to us. The report shows that there is work to do with students in writing, but that seemed to be a factor across the country. That may or may not be a reflection on the tool used for NAPLAN this year. Parents will get their child’s individual NAPLAN results as soon as they are available.

Bundaberg Choir & Instrumental Eisteddfod

The Bundaberg Choir and Instrumental Eisteddfod was on last week. There was a huge participation from Shalom students. The Shalom Choir swept all before them with some magnificent performances. The instrumental students also performed pretty brilliantly achieving lots of firsts. Those students and their very talented teachers put in an enormous amount of effort to hone their skills and they deserve all the accolades that they received.

Parents and Friends Association

The P & F Association continue to be an enormous support to the College. At last week’s meeting the P&F agreed to fund the provision of ‘School TV’ as a resource for parents. This is located on our Web page and is an excellent tool for parents working through ‘digital’ issues with their children. This month’s topic on School TV is ‘On-line Pornography’ and, whilst a difficult issue and another of those as parents that we wish we didn’t have to deal with, we do! Please take a look at this resource. One of the disturbing quotes I picked up from one of the interviews was that “On-line pornography is Australia’s leading sex educator.” Parents must involve themselves in this conversation. There are some excellent tips for parents on this site.

Also very grateful to the P&F for their purchase of a new electronic keyboard for the Loyola Centre.

Eucharist – Every Wednesday Morning

Wednesday Morning Eucharist is open to all in the Loyola Centre Chapel each week. We start at 8am and is usually well over by the 8:30am bell. We are getting a great roll up to this simple and meaningful Eucharistic celebration. Everyone is welcome.

Confraternity Rugby League & Netball Carnivals

The Confraternity Rugby League and Netball Carnivals were, again, fantastic experiences for our students during the first week of the last holiday break. Shalom has offered to host both these carnivals in 2019. We will be looking for lots of volunteer support! This will be a huge event for the College and Bundaberg. Almost 2000 students + staff + parents will descend on the town for the five day event – always in the first week of the mid-year break. We are very pleased that ‘Across The Waves’ club has joined us in hosting the Rugby League and we are very hopeful that we will secure a commitment from the new PCYC complex to host the Netball. I would love to hear from anyone who would be interested in becoming involved in the planning for this event. We will be meeting shortly.

Curriculum Notes

Selecting subjects for Years 9 and 10 in 2018

During the remainder of this term, we will be spending some time preparing Year 8 students for entry into Year 9 and Year 9 students into Year 10 in 2018. As part of this process, an Information Evening has been scheduled for Tuesday 22 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 2018 that provides a brief overview of the curriculum to be offered at Shalom College next year will be published on the College Website and the Intranet in coming weeks. The booklet includes basic subject information, a course planner, a stationery list for 2018 and offline subject selection forms. Most students will select their subjects for 2018 online using the WebChoices Student Portal.

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

Year 10 SET Plans Interviews

SET Plan interview appointments were issued to all Year 10 students last week through PC. Most of these interviews will be conducted from Monday 7 to Friday 18 August. In preparation for the interviews, students have been asked to complete their SET Plan forms to bring to the interview along with their WebChoices online subject selection receipt. Spare copies of SET Plan forms are available from the College office. Resources to assist parents and students in completing SET Plans are available on the Intranet under the ‘Year 10 Personal Futures Resources’ tab.

Year 10 students who will not be returning to Shalom in 2018 are still required to complete a SET Plan and attend an interview.

Completed SET Plans must be returned by Friday 1 September 2017.

Issue of Year 7 and 9 NAPLAN Reports

All Year 7 and 9 2017 NAPLAN reports will be mailed to parents this week or early next week. If you have not received the report for your child by the end of next week (allowing for slower mail delivery times) please contact the College office. If you have any specific concerns arising from the report, please contact the Middle School Coordinator, Mrs Megan Munckton (4155 8111) or me.

Quiet Achiever

We have two Quiet Achievers this week. Kurt Munckton and Joanna Bryans – Year 12 Lingiari House.

Our Lingiari captains spent both days of our Athletics Carnival encouraging everyone to get involved by either participating or cheering. They were like streaks of orange, capes flying, as they ran from one side of the oval to the other. Their positive attitudes and enthusiasm for Lingiari is appreciated by all of our house. Thank you Kurt and Joanna.

Humanities News: Senior Modern History Seminars

How did the Nazis ensure their control over the citizens of Germany during the Third Reich? What are the conditions that have led to the development of terrorism – both in the past and today?

These questions were posed to the Senior Modern History classes last week when they attended a seminar organised by the Queensland History Teachers Association. Visiting academics, Dr Brian Hoepper and Associate Professor Andrew Bonnell introduced students to a range of primary and secondary evidence on these topics – challenging the students to think critically about the world around them. The seminar was held in the Loyola Centre, with students from St Luke’s Anglican School and Bundaberg Christian College also attending.

The Year 12 students particularly enjoyed the terrorism presentation, which linked directly to their Term 3 unit of study and research assignment. Year 12 students are currently researching the development of terrorism, its use and the response of governments to terrorist threats in the 20th and 21st centuries. As always in Modern History, the aim is to develop students critical analysis skills, ensuring they are informed citizens and experts in interpreting evidence.

Year 11 students Emilee Cameron, Rory Delaney, Dr Brian Hoepper, Associate Professor Andrew Bonnell, Chloe Bewely and Ethan Hooper

Shalom Tennis Success - Qld Secondary School Teams Tennis Regional Finals

On Thursday 20 July, Shalom entered a Boys team and a Girls team to compete in the Regional Finals of the Queensland Secondary School Tennis Teams competition at Rotary Park in Bundaberg. Shalom did exceptionally well on the day with the Boys team winning their division to qualify for the State Finals while the Girls team were narrowly beaten to finish runners-up.

Naomi Jarman showing her impressive service technique

The girls team; Hannah Allen, Naomi Jarman, Caya Akasaka Marshall and Kaitlin Maher, played their final against a strong Hervey Bay State High School team. Hannah played some high quality tennis eventually narrowly losing to Hervey Bay High’s top player in a very entertaining match, while Naomi was defeated by their strong number two player. Wins to Caya and Kaitlin in the singles kept Shalom in touch with the winning school having to be decided by the doubles rubbers. Naomi and Kaitlin held their nerve to claim a victory in the doubles with the overall match tied at three rubbers each. After a countback, Hervey Bay were declared the winners by 49 games to 44. The girls should be extremely proud of their efforts.

Caya Akasaka Marshall, Hannah Allen, Naomi Jarman, Kaitlin Maher

The boys team of Rory Delaney, Kelvin Pimm, Simon Rathbone, Nathan Cook and Isaac Coyne continued their impressive record of winning the Regional Finals holding off challenges from St James Lutheran College (Hervey Bay), Rosedale SS and St Luke’s. The boys won a total of 20 sets (86 games) and only lost four sets (29 games) in a dominant display throughout the day with a combination of impressive skills by the players and depth in the squad.

The boys will go to the State Titles in Rockhampton from 13 to 15 September to take on the best from schools all over Queensland. With this being the last year for Rory and Kelvin, the boys are hoping to send them off in style.

Rory Delaney, Isaac Coyne, Nathan Cook, Simon Rathbone, Kelvin Pimm

Wide Bay School Surfing - State Titles

Last week five Shalom students, Kiara Murphy, Taylor Lyons, Ewan Heads, Jackson Lester and Jai Smith were part of the Wide Bay Regional team at the State Surfing Titles (Thursday 27 July to Sunday 30 July) held at Coolum Beach, Sunshine Coast. Along with students from Agnes Water, Gympie, Rainbow Beach and other Bundaberg schools, they enjoyed excellent weather and contestable surf conditions throughout the event. Shalom student Taylor Lyons, received an encouragement award for her efforts in her heats as well as her support of other team members. The high level of behaviour, enthusiasm and efforts of the Wide Bay team is always recognised by event officials and other regions staff. Congratulations to all of the Shalom members of the team for representing your school and region commendably.

Ecumenical Lunch - Helping the Homeless

Join us in the Shalom College Sports Centre for a special event with International Humanitarian and Global Peacemaker Moira Kelly

http://www.moirakellyaustralia.com/

Lunch will be catered by The Waves and additional entertainment and fundraising activities will be ongoing. Tickets will be available at $55pp or $35pp concession (discounted prices are for aged pension and school students only).

All fundraising proceeds will go towards updating facilities to ensure homeless people have access to showers and washing / drying facilities, as well as conversation and connection with volunteers for further support and referral.

The 2017 Ecumenical Committee is underpinned by CentacareCQ as the auspicing body, and has additionally brought together enthusiastic representatives from the Bundaberg Housing and Homeless Forum, Churches, Local Government, Media, Local Business and Service Groups to help identify and implement projects that will have practical outcomes to those effected by homelessness in Bundaberg.

Every night there are more than 19,838 people experiencing homelessness in Queensland alone, that’s 1 in 200 people Australia-wide, so it was not difficult to facilitate a fundraising campaign that is “Helping the Homeless”.

Please click on the link to follow the event on our Shalom Facebook Page 15th Annual Ecumenical Lunch.
