Principal’s Reflection

At the end of this week, we will farewell 221 wonderful Year 12 students. They have been a great part of this College community and we are a better school for their presence. We will also farewell many families from Shalom who have also been a great part of the community. I hope and pray that each of them is prepared and ready for the next stage of their journey. Some of them are sure of the path that they want to take, others are still working that through. I hope that all of them are much better people for the experience of being at Shalom. A couple of years ago I read an article that I think is worth repeating as we wish these great young women and men all the very best as they complete their final exams and move on to the next stage of their journey.

You Will Not Be A Success Or Failure In Life Based On Your OP Score

I know it’s a big deal. I remember. But the truth is that, long-term, your OP score has nothing to do with how successful you will be in life. An OP 1 is no guarantee of anything. You can be the smartest person in the room but if you’re not resilient, if you don’t have the ability to ‘bounce back’ when failure and disappointment strike (and trust me, they’ll strike), then you won’t get anywhere. It’s the people in life who, when they fall down, are able to get back up, dust themselves off and keep going, inevitably achieve their goals. So if, like me, you don’t get the OP score you were hoping for – don’t stress. If you really want to study something, you’ll find a wormhole. When one door shuts, try squeezing through the cat flap.

Real Life Has Real Consequences

It might not have felt like it but high school is actually a fairly nurturing, safe environment. Real life? Not so much. In the real world – be it in a job or at university – you face more than a Saturday morning detention if you behave like a bully. Or steal something. Or mutter racist or sexist remarks.

And if you go on to further study and choose to spend your days sitting in the recreation club discussing Game of Thrones rather than attending lectures, no teacher is going to come looking for you. And your grades will suck. Welcome to life.

Do What You Love

The biggest risk you’ll take is NOT doing what you love. Work takes up a hell of a lot of your life. If you’re studying something purely to please your family, you risk living a second-rate version of your own life. And life’s too short not to feel fulfilled by what you do every day.

If you’re not sure yet what it is you want to do, don’t stress either. Pick something. If it doesn’t work out, you get to change direction. You have the right to change your mind.

So Class of 2017, take care. And know that whatever unfolds over the next few weeks, you’ll be just fine.

Tuckshop Refurbishments

On Monday 20 November, we will have builders on site to do major refurbishments to the Tuckshop and also the student toilets adjacent to the tuckshop. The tuckshop will continue to operate from the Market Barbecue area while renovations continue. The tuckshop menu will be less expansive than at present. The refurbishments are extensive and won’t be completed until well into Term 1 next year.

Enrolment changes

Please advise the College office as soon as possible if your daughter or son won’t be returning to Shalom next year.

Graduation Liturgy and Farewell for the 2017 Year 12 Students

Date Claimer for Year 12 Students

All Year 12 Students and their parents are invited to the Year 12 presentation (slide and DVD) of their time at Shalom. It will be in the Shalom Performing Arts Precinct on the night of Wednesday 15 November commencing at 7pm. A reminder of the slide-song-video presentation for the Year 12 students and their parents. The song is called "Under the Red and Black and White". Hence you are invited to come dressed in these colours. It is not compulsory but it should add colour and fun for the night.

Curriculum Notes

Year 7 & 9 NAPLAN Tests 2018

The National Assessment Program literacy and numeracy (NAPLAN) tests will be conducted in all Queensland schools on 15, 16 and 17 May 2018.

The tests will assess students in the areas of literacy (including reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar) and numeracy (number, measurement, chance and data, space, working mathematically, algebra function and pattern). The results from these tests will be used for individual student reporting to parents, school reporting to the community, and aggregate reporting by the State against national standards.

All Year 3, 5, 7 and 9 students enrolled in State, Catholic and Independent schools will be required to sit on the test days. Parents are asked to ensure that their children will be available to sit the tests on the test days and that family commitments are not planned for the test week. Parents who have concerns about their child’s availability to sit the test are welcome to contact the Middle School Coordinator, Mrs Megan Munckton 4155 8294.

More detailed information regarding the tests and preparation arrangements at Shalom College will be communicated during Term One next year. In the meantime, further general information is available from the NAPLAN website or the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority website at:

Change of subjects for 2018

We are now accepting requests for change of subjects for 2018. To facilitate the process a form has been created and posted on the College intranet under the “Documents” tab for current Year 8, 9 and 10 students. Alternatively, parents may write a letter requesting changes; please include the name of the student, the year level for 2018 (Year 9, 10 or 11), the subject(s) originally selected and the new selection.

When considering changes note that some changes may not be possible due the limited availability of places or clashes as the timetable nears completion. This year, a further layer of complexity is added to timetabling given the smaller cohort size going into Year 11 in 2018 – this may make some changes difficult if not impossible. All changes must be communicated in writing by Friday 24 November 2017. Requests made after this date may be held over until the start of the new school year and may not be included in the timetable initially issued.

Subject details may be found in the subject selection guides available for download from the College website or intranet.

Year 10 End of Semester Examinations

Year 10 end of semester examinations are scheduled for Wednesday 22 to Friday 24 November. The timetable has been posted on the College intranet under the “Assessment & Reporting” tab and the College website.

As this will be the first time that Year 10 students are confronted with an examination block, parents and students need to be aware of some variations to conditions, especially attendance. During examination blocks students are only required to attend if they have a scheduled examination or supplementary assessment. There are five examination sessions in the block and not all students have examinations in each session.

Students who cannot be conveniently collected, who cannot make their own way home, have to wait for a bus or whose parents prefer them to be in attendance throughout the school day will be supervised and engaged in meaningful learning activity until 3:00pm on each day of the examination block.

Help and advice for Year 12 students about careers or QTAC applications

Year 12 students and parents who need urgent advice during the summer break may contact the Careers Advisor, Mr Troy Braund at This service is available for students and parents who need to discuss current QTAC applications, especially during the period Monday 18 December 2017 to Friday 12 January 2018.

Please include your name, a brief outline of the query, a return telephone / mobile phone contact number and available contact times in the text of the e-mail. Mr Braund will do his best to make contact or refer your enquiry as soon as possible.

Please note that this service is for parents and students in Years 12 who are seeking urgent advice. All other routine enquiries should be directed to the College office during business hours.

Assistant to the Principal – Curriculum


Year 12 Graduation Liturgy and Rehearsal

The Graduation and end of year Liturgy is this Thursday 16th November, commencing at 9:00am in the Sports Centre. The morning will conclude with a morning tea served in the Performing Arts Precinct foyer for Year 12 students and their parents (no siblings to attend morning tea). Please remember that room in the Sports Centre is limited and there will only be enough seats placed to cover RSVP’s. These were to go to Mrs. Jan Aplin on 4155 8103.

Year 12 students will have a rehearsal Period 3, Tuesday 14th November. This was scheduled as part of the exam timetable to avoid absenteeism. This is a compulsory rehearsal to ensure everyone knows seating plans and the format. The graduating class are to be assembled in the hanger Tuesday at 12:05pm (end of lunch bell) and no later than 8:40am (morning bell) on the Thursday.

Parents, please check what side your graduating student’s House will be seated, as this will determine the side you will also be seated.

Quiet Achiever

Leah Scott has been involved in many activities within her Pastoral Care class and she involves herself very well in House activities. Leah has also volunteered to have a Year 7 buddy for next year even though she moves into year 11. Leah was very happy to stay behind and be part of the orientation afternoon so she could meet her buddy.

Leah has also gained some outstanding Table Tennis achievements throughout this past year. She went to Tasmania to represent QLD in Table Tennis and she has played in various interstate competitions and won some prize money along the way. Leah is proud of the numerous trophies and medals she has won this past year from competing in various fixtures. To further develop her skills as a table tennis competitor, Leah has attended quite a number of training camps. We would love to see Leah compete at the Olympic or Commonwealth games in the future.

Trying to juggle both school work and table tennis schedule has been manageable for Leah as she continues to do well at school and maintains a positive attitude in all the things she does.

Well Done Leah!!

Where are they now? Shalom Edition

Name: Andrew Pippia

Graduating year: 1989

Subjects studied: (as they were at the time) English, RE, Maths I, Maths II, Physics, Chemistry, Accounting

Current roles: Corporate Lawyer working as General Counsel for Enerflex Australasia Holdings Pty Ltd as well as Chairman for Agri Fibre Industries Pty Ltd

What qualifications and work experience have you gained since graduating high school? LL.B, B.Bus (Accy), Grad.Dip.Leg.Prac., Grad.Dip.Tax., Grad.Dip.Co.Sec.Prac.

22 years working as a lawyer in Queensland, with 17 of those years working for corporations (not law firms). Approximately 12 of those “corporate years” have been involved in the infrastructure, construction, resources and major projects fields. Employers have included MRH and Charltons in Bundaberg, Ashurst and PwC in Brisbane. Corporate employers have included: RACQ Ltd, SunWater Ltd, Thiess Pty Ltd, Department of Mines and Energy, Macmahon Ltd, Hancock Coal Pty Ltd and Enerflex Ltd.

What has been the most rewarding, challenging or interesting experience in your study or work so far? The opportunity to travel to places like Beijing and Abu Dhabi and shortly Calgary, Canada to negotiate and reach agreement on the terms of commercial contracts and while doing so, see new countries and experience cultures quite diverse from ours.

How did your senior studies contribute or impact on your tertiary study and/or career choices? I was fortunate enough to identify the course I wanted to do before finishing Grade 10. That allowed me to have the focus and motivation that was necessary to study hard in senior school and put other pursuits and interests temporarily to the side. English (law), Accounting and some Maths I (business) were relevant to my university studies. Once I qualified for the course I wanted to do, I then resumed some of those other pursuits (sporting and social interests) to balance out my academic course work.

Can you identify one invaluable thing that you learned at Shalom? Perseverance - the art of being determined and consistently trying to achieve your desired goals, no matter the difficulties or adversity faced.

What advice can you offer to current students interested in your field? University qualifications are just a stepping stone along the path to a successful career in the law, business or any other profession. To make the transition from student to valued employee or business owner requires a solid track record in your tertiary studies and also the ability to interact socially and professionally with the people you work with and the people you work for. You need both – not just one or the other. Both careers offer a wide variety of specialty (law – commercial, criminal, family, litigation) (business – management, auditing, accounting, advisory, analysis, finance, banking). I cannot emphasise enough how important it is to have well-rounded social skills. The ability to connect and network with people can open doors and it is incredible the number of times that being “the friend of a friend of a friend” results in an opportunity presenting itself that is not made available more widely. It’s not always fair but the adage “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know” is still very prevalent in not just a professional career, but in all aspects of life and society. Hopefully the focus that Shalom places on all aspects of a student’s development will arm you with not just the academic or technical skills needed to have a successful career but also those all-important social skills.

This is the last Where are they now? for 2017. The feature will continue in 2018. If you, or someone you know, might be interested in being featured in Where are they now? please email Patricia Allen at

As the year comes to a close I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate students who have secured trades and positions after graduating. Our strengthened networks and connections within industry have provided increased opportunity and pathways outcomes. I would love to list all our successful students individually, but you all know who you are, and that we share genuine excitement for your success and future.

2017 has seen increased numbers of student’s complete national qualifications, follow our pathways advise, engage in placements, perfect self-marketing and workplace communication skills - and it has paid off.

Certificate 1 in General Construction and Certificate II in Engineering

Congratulations to the Year 12 students who gained their Certificates in either Construction or Engineering last Thursday 2 November. Mr Shane Watson from 'Bluedog Training' was at Shalom to present the successful students with their certificates for completing their respective course. This is the third year Bluedog Training has partnered with Shalom College to deliver the course in both trade areas. Mr Watson as the mentor, travelled to Bundaberg every term to check the progress of the students and observe the students working in their selected course. The student’s theory work is checked along with the various competencies which are covered through the practical component offered at the College. The Engineering course utilises fantastic facilities in the Mount Sion Trade Training Centre, while the Construction work is done in the Construction courtyard close by.

To celebrate the success of the students over the duration of the course and for them gaining their certificates, Mrs Liza O'Donnell (VET Coordinator) and Mr Shane Watson provided a BBQ lunch for the students so their efforts could be recognise along with their commitment to the courses. Mr McMahon was present to issue students with their certificates along with the Shalom teachers who deliver the courses.

Instrumental Music

Pleasant Sunday Afternoon

Pleasant Sunday Afternoon was a lovely way to end the year with a whole afternoon of music performed so well by all groups. The Year 12 students dressed up and looked very grown up as they formed up together to accept their participation certificate and gift of appreciation. A very big thank you to all families who donated food for the lovely afternoon tea and also the ‘monster’ raffle. Of the latter, the overwhelming generosity of everyone who donated, helped create 18 prizes, all beautifully assembled by Mrs Jo Medcalf. Thank you very much to everyone and I hope you all had a lovely afternoon.

Music Orientation

Once again, the music tutors provided a day for our incoming Year 7 students from a variety of schools, to work with all the tutors in preparation for 2018 School year. There were 45 young musicians in total, and going by what we heard by the end of the day, Shalom College performing groups will continue with the quality of music playing that we have become accustomed to. Many thanks to Mr King for organising this great day for our future musicians and thank you to the tutors for spending the day working and encouraging these young musicians.

Tourism Studies

Our Year 12 Tourism students completed their final assessment piece this week. Students used skills and knowledge gained from studying Tourism over the past 2 years to create an itinerary for a client’s 3 week overseas holiday. The itineraries were many and varied, from kayaking in Madagascar and Tango dancing in Argentina, to wine tasting in Tuscany and horse and carriage rides in Dublin! Students delivered their holiday packages in a simulated work environment and the itineraries were then sent to Ms Belle de Vries, a Flight Centre consultant at Hinkler Place, who was tasked with choosing the best itinerary. Sandi Davis came away with the prize, which was a Lonely Planet of her choice for a future holiday. Sandi’s itinerary saw a twenty-something university student traveling through South America, hiking in Chile’s Moon Valley and biking through Buenos Aires. When advised of her win, Sandi said, “please thank Belle for picking my itinerary, I'm so stoked!” As to the prize, Sandi said, “I would love to get the Morocco guide, and hopefully one day I'll send you a photo from there!”

Surf Life Saving

Last weekend several Shalom College students competed at the North Australian Lifesaving Championships in Mackay. Three students gained selection in the Qld Country Team that will compete at the Inter Branch Championships at the end of this month on the Gold Coast.

Ky with his gold medal

Ky and Jasmyn gold and silver
for the beach flags

Ky Woods has been selected as a beach competitor after winning the U15 Male Beach Flags and he finished 3rd in the U15 Male Beach Sprint events. Overall Ky won 5 medals (2 Gold, 2 Silver and 1 Bronze). The medals that he won were for individual and team events. Baylee Holden (U15 Females) and Jackson Lester (U17 Males) have also been selected to represent Qld Country. Jasmyn Theuerkauf was named as a reserve for the team.


If your child has played sport for Shalom in 2017, can I please ask that you have a look at home for any team sporting uniforms (this is not the Shalom Sports uniform). We seem to be missing a lot of uniforms from our team bags this year. If you find any, can you please return them to Mr Gills in the Sports Office.

Drag Racing

Shalom has another State Champion after Harrison Thwaite claimed the Champion Junior Dragster title with victory in the third and final round of the Australian National Drag Racing Association 2017 Summit Racing Equipment Queensland Championships at Ironbark Raceway Roma on 4th and 5th November. Harrison won each of his three qualifying races for the weekend before also taking out the final. The Year 8 student had finished fourth in the first round of the series at Palmyra Raceway Mackay, before also triumphing in the second round on his home track at Benaraby Raceway, but he said that he had to win again at Ironbark to clinch his maiden state crown in his third year in the sport. Harrison is very proud of his achievement. “Some people have been racing for 30 years and have still not won a state championship, and to win it at the age of 14 is pretty special,” Harrison said. Harrison brought home impressive trophies for both his round and Series victories, as well as a $100 Summit Racing Equipment Voucher, which he plans to use to buy a new helmet or a race suit. Harrison keeps himself fit by going to the gym regularly, and on weekends that he is not racing, he spends a lot of time working on his race car, which he built with his father Nathan, to keep it in top condition. He is very grateful to his mother and father for all their support, time and commitment in taking him to all the different venues, far and wide, to compete. Harrison said he has one more race meeting to end the season, at Benaraby later this month, before he has a few months away from the track until the new season fires up again in February. Harrison said he is still eligible for Junior Dragster for another two seasons and he would love to defend the state title in 2018 but he also has his eyes on even higher honours. “I would also like to win the Winter Nationals, which will be over four days at Willowbank in June,” he said.

Rugby 7s Heading to Grand Final this Week.

Shalom teams once again performed strongly in last week’s final round games and preliminary finals.

In under 13 round games, Shalom Black lost to St Luke’s, while Shalom Red defeated the Barbarian team. This left Shalom Red at the top of the table, with Shalom Black in third position. In the first preliminary final, Shalom Black defeated the Barbarians to book a place in next week’s semi-finals. This means Shalom teams will play in separate semis – with potentially an all Shalom Grand Final!!

Under 15 teams also played their preliminary finals. Shalom Red were automatically through to the semis, finishing in second place overall. Shalom Black worked hard to defeat a spirited Bundaberg Christian College. Bundaberg Christian College were ahead 10-nil at half time after some uncustomary errors from Shalom Black, however, they rallied in the second half to prevail 19-10. Shalom Black now face Shalom Red in the first semi-final this week.

Semi-finals for both Under 13 and Under 15 start at 4pm on Wednesday 15 November at St Luke’s School oval. It would be great to see as many members of the Shalom community as possible there supporting our teams.

Shalom Rugby 7s Coordinator

Tennis – Central Queensland Representative Players

Congratulations to Caya Akasaka-Marshall and Katie Maher who have been chosen to represent Central Queensland at the upcoming Queensland Junior Teams Carnival in the U13 Girls category.

The Queensland Junior Teams Carnival is an annual prestigious tennis event held during the December school holidays in Brisbane. 6 regions of Queensland enter representative teams to compete against each other as well as numerous interstate teams. This year will include Northern New South Wales, Northern Territory, South Australia and New Zealand in the bid to be crowned Queensland Champions.

To qualify for this team, the girls have had to perform at a high level in tennis tournaments in Wide Bay and Capricornia throughout 2017. The improvement that these talented girls have shown is testament to the dedication they show to this sport. It seems the Shalom girl’s tennis team is in good hands for many years to come. Well done girls!
