Principal’s Reflection

Last Monday night we enjoyed a great presentation from journalist and author, Madonna King who wrote, “Fathers & Daughters – helping girls and their dads build unbreakable bonds”. In her summation, she reminded us that it is never too late for Dads to build relationships with their daughters. She gave her ‘top ten’ tips for Dads who want to rebuild or maintain great connections with their girls –

  1. Love her unconditionally – make sure she knows that love is stronger than any other emotion that might pull you away from her
  2. A father has the power to build a girl’s confidence or crush it. Value her opinion even if it is different to yours
  3. Whether you live under the same roof or not, you have a responsibility to be there – really be there.
  4. Pick an interest or a project and develop it with her – build memories together.
  5. Don’t fix her problems; listen to her and teach her the skills to evaluate and make good decisions.
  6. A daughter is not weaker or more vulnerable than her brother. She is different but not inferior. Be ambitious for her.
  7. A father is a girl’s prime role model for men. She will learn what to expect from men from you and by how you treat her mother and other women.
  8. Take your daughter on dates, by herself…make sure she knows that the bond you have with her is special
  9. Fathers offer their daughters lessons and skills their mothers cannot (and the opposite is true as well). You can be both a provider and a parent.
  10. Talk. Communicate. Say things. Remember that males and females communicate in different ways.

For what it is worth, my gut feeling would be that much of the above will apply for Dads as they also build relationships with their sons as well. We blokes can think, very mistakenly, that our role is limited to providing a home and lifestyle instead of building lasting relationships.

Madonna King's book, "Fathers & Daughters – helping girls and their dads build unbreakable bonds” is available for purchase at Dymocks Book Store, Bourbong St, Bundaberg.

Samuel Johnson at Shalom – the next event sponsored by the Shalom Parents & Friends will be on Thursday 13 June when Samuel Johnson will speak to parents at 7pm. Sam is in Bundaberg for the “Love Your Sister” dinner on Friday 14 June. Tickets are available for the Rainbows and Lollipops Charity Gala Dinner at bundabergtickets.com.au. Samuel is a well known actor and recent winner of ‘Dancing with the Stars’. Following the tragic death of his own sister to Cancer, Sam has committed himself to raising awareness of Cancer in society and to raise funds for research. If at all possible, buy a ticket to the Dinner and come, with your friends, to the presentation on Thursday night. Sam will also speak to our students on Assembly on the Thursday.

The Year 12 Formal was an outstanding success on Saturday night. Every Mum and Dad present would have been very proud of their daughters and sons. It was, as always, a beautiful night and I am enormously grateful to all the staff who gave their time to ensure its success – especially Mrs Austin-Campbell and Ms Jo Medcalf.

Showcase is on this week. I have absolutely no doubt that this will be another outstanding production from the parts of the show I have seen. If you want to witness a great piece of entertainment, don’t miss booking your ticket.

Student Welfare and Information

Dear Parents and Caregiver of our Year 12 students,

I hope you enjoyed the night at our Formal. Our young ladies and young men were outstanding. However, a night such as this comes with many people giving very generously of their time.

Thank you to all the Year 11 students who gave so generously of their time to help out with the Year 12 Formal. I had about 20 students showing parents to their tables and a crew of students opening the car doors for the seniors. There were quite a number of hospitality students working in the kitchen for Across the Waves who do the catering.

Another group of Year 10 students helped to put 490 chairs covers on 490 chairs! A job well done Year 10.

Thank you also to the staff who assisted the students with the ushering. Our two announcers also did an excellent job.

I know the students are always appreciative of the staff who attend on the night as it adds to their night. So thank you to those staff.

Mrs Elizabeth Austin-Campbell

Year 11 New QCE

Year 11 students are approaching the end of work on Unit 1 in General and Applied school subjects. During week 6 students sat a number of examinations that were the final assessment tasks for the first unit of study.

QCAA issued a brochure about the QCE that was given to Year 11 students to take home. Within the brochure is a letter from the Minister for Education. Please check with your son or daughter to locate the brochure and read about the QCE; about Access Arrangements and Reasonable Adjustments; and to find some details of resources relating to careers and tertiary study.

2019 Bundaberg Business and Careers Showcase

Over 50 Year 10 and 12 students recently took advantage of the opportunity to attend the Bundaberg Business and Careers Showcase held at the Bundaberg Multiplex. Students gained valuable information from a range of exhibitors and learnt about career pathways in Agriculture, Business and Finance, Childcare, Disability and Health, Fitness, Defence, Universities, TAFE, Training, Employment, Manufacturing, Police, Retail and much more.

We received this email from a parent of a Year 10 student who attended the Careers Showcase:

‘I just wanted to thank you for giving my son the opportunity to attend the careers expo yesterday. He found it incredibly valuable and has opened some great discussions at home’

Work Experience

In the last school holidays, Year 11 student, Grace Trebbin, participated in work experience at the Alexandra Park Zoo. Grace thoroughly enjoyed her placement and it has confirmed her goal to pursue a career working with animals in the future.

Grace said: Working at the Alexandra Park Zoo for the week was one of the most amazing things that I did all holidays. Some of my favourite moments there were walking and getting to help train the dingoes, and when I got to hang with the Emus and to give them a bath was really cool. I really enjoyed every moment, meeting new people and hanging out with all the animals in the zoo.

Work experience is a great opportunity for students to explore their passion and understand what is expected in the workplace, while developing skills outside the classroom. Shalom would like to thank Bundaberg Regional Council for their collaboration and support in providing this industry engagement.

Reconciliation Week 27 May- 3 June

“GROUNDED IN TRUTH: Walk Together with Courage.

What is Reconciliation? It is about strengthening relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples, for the benefit of all Australians.

There is 5 dimensions to measure reconciliation by: Race relations is one of those five dimensions that Reconciliation Australia uses to define and measure reconciliation.

At the heart of reconciliation is the relationship between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. To achieve reconciliation, we need to develop strong relationships built on trust and respect, and that are free of racism. This requires that we understand and value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture, rights and experiences.

Almost all Australians believe the relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians is important and that cultural diversity makes us stronger. Yet too often this goodwill is not reflected in behaviours.

WE’RE ON THIS ‘LEARNING JOURNEY’ TOGETHER

Let us learn about Australian history, honestly and holistically addressing past injustices and serving as an “end-point to a history of wrongdoing”, allowing for healing so relationships can grow stronger.

For many Australians, the truths of our nation’s history since colonisation was not typically taught in schools or universities, or it was taught in ways that marginalise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices and perspectives. As a result, many Australians remain unaware or uninformed of injustices committed against Australia’s First Nations peoples, and how these past wrongs continue to have an impact on them today.

So engaging in reconciliation involves ongoing learning and reflection, which may involve a process of “unlearning” and “relearning”.

Every year more Australians are wanting to learn, and are learning, about our nation’s histories both before and after colonisation. Children and young people in schools now have the opportunity to learn about historical events and experiences such as the Frontier Wars and the Stolen Generations, along with stories of the strength and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

CHALLENGING CONVERSATIONS,
UNLEARNING AND RELEARNING WHAT
YOU KNOW, REQUIRES ALL OF US TO
WALK TOGETHER WITH COURAGE

Instrumental Music

Rhapsody Rotorua 2020

I have sent out information and an expression of interest form to all music students. I would like to take primarily a vocal group of 20 - 25 students but need the expression of interest form returned by 7 June before a meeting is called to answer all questions re the tour. The 20-25 singers do not need to be currently in choir – they could be students who have a love of singing and travel. In addition, if there are enough students to make up a small string, woodwind or mixed instrumental group for example, that would be a great addition to our performance commitments in Rotorua. Please contact me as soon as possible if you need more information.

Rugby League

It was a disappointing day for Shalom in the third round of the BDSSS Rugby League Broncos Challenge with all three of our teams which played losing, our Year 7’s being pipped by Bundaberg High 6-4, our Year 9’s going down to Kepnock 34-0 and our Opens gallant in a 12-6 defeat at the hands of Bundaberg High.

With a place in the Wide Bay Northern Conference Open Division Greg Smith Cup final at stake, Bundaberg High struck twice early on with back-to-back tries, scored on both wings to lead 10-0, but Shalom regrouped to keep them try-less for the last 30 minutes, and the boys got back to within four points with interchange front rower Liam Morrison crashing over for his second try in two matches in the 29th minute and five-eighth Bradley Clarke adding the extras.

Bundaberg High stretched their lead to six points with a penalty five minutes later, but Shalom continued to attack and went close a few times, only to be denied by a strong defence, and they ultimately did not get the chance to hunt for a late equaliser with disappointingly, play stopped with one minute left on the clock when an opposition player went down with a cramp and action did not resume.

Hard working No. 12 Aaron Cunnington was absolutely outstanding, including with 18 bruising tackles, and he was a clear winner of the Man of the Match and Players’ Player awards, while fellow second rower Connor Black and rugged centre Darcy Clarke were other stand-outs, and fullback Jake Bonus did everything in his power to lift the side, but the team will rue “the one that got away” after their slow start cost them the match.

Open Player of the Match and Players’ Player Aaron Cunnington

Shalom Year 9 coach Mr Tobin named barnstorming front rowers Ronan Dempsey and Coen Searl, together with five-eighth Mitchell Sly, as their best.

Shalom’s Year 7’s made a good start with tough front rower Joseph Doyle crossing in the fourth minute, and they produced many more fine passages of attack, but unfortunately they were unable to finish off any of them, and Bundaberg High secured victory with a converted try in the 26th minute. Coach Mr O’Driscoll said fullback Kobi Holden had another excellent all-round game, along with halfback Dane Zardus and Joseph Doyle.

Open: Bundaberg High 12 d Shalom 6 (Liam Morrison try, Bradley Clarke).
Year 9: Kepnock 34 d Shalom 0.
Year 7: Bundaberg High 6 d Shalom 4 (Joseph Doyle try).

Sporting Shooters Combined Services State Championships

Year 8 student Angus Watson recently competed in the Sporting Shooters Combined Services State Championships at Bundaberg SSAA range. Over the three day competition Angus was awarded 9 silver medals and a gold medal for handgun Rapid Fire 25 metres.

Angus’s fellow shooters spoke highly of his behaviour on and off the range. Angus was pleased to be competing in the sport of his choice at a high level event - it was a bonus for him to be rewarded for his efforts.

Angus has been invited to the 2020 CS State Championships in Rockhampton and is very keen to improve his PB in the pistol and sniper events.

Where are they now?

Name: Andrew Crane

Graduating year: 2013

Subjects studied: Ancient History, Drama, English, IT, Math A, Studies of Religion

Current role: Prop and Graphics Fabricator for Screen – Small Business Owner

What qualifications and work experience have you gained since graduating high school?

BFA: Interactive & Visual Design - QUT

Master’s in Production Design for Screen – VCA

I have produced props and graphics for numerous productions on-set and through my small business.

What has been the most rewarding, challenging or interesting experience in your study or work so far?

Transitioning from study to work has been a challenging but rewarding experience for me. Finding and growing the skills that make me unique within the local screen industry has prompted diversification across several disciplines that include CAD, VR, 3D printing and laser cutting.

Much of the current industry is still comprised of the old guard who is either clueless to what these technologies can offer them or terrified that it may replace them. Having the opportunity to produce props for productions and share how additive manufacturing can enhance the work of traditional craftsmen, as opposed to replacing them, has been a rewarding and unique experience.

How did your senior studies contribute or impact on your tertiary study and/or career choices?

None of my senior year subject choices at Shalom directly translated into what I do now - I think saying otherwise would be a rather fantastic statement for me to make - however there were two things at Shalom that did heavily affect what I do today.

The first was my involvement in extra-curricular activities. Shalom Day, as well as numerous other cultural events, grew my character and leadership skills immensely and encouraged my creativity. The emphasis that the Shalom community puts on its cultural activities is extremely special and granted me memories which I will cherish for the rest of my life.

The second was the undying support and kindness shown to me by many of my teachers. Their passion for their work made me excited about my study and assignments. Fiercely intelligent people like Mrs. Bolam, Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Wedemeyer (to name just a few of my wonderful teachers) encouraged my creativity within the classroom and truly shaped who I am today.

Can you identify one invaluable thing that you learned at Shalom?

The importance of community. The Shalom community is so unlike any that I have since been a part of. When my father died, years after leaving Shalom, many of my teachers and my principal attended his funeral – I was even invited back to the school for a short liturgy in honour of him, held by my house (Chisholm). This was an extremely moving experience that emphasised how special this community is. Surrounding yourself with positive people who believe in you and cheer you on is so essential.

What advice can you offer to current students interested in your field?

The first thing you notice when working on a film or tv show is that almost everyone surrounding you exudes passion, dedication, and skill. All three traits are non-optional if you want to make it in this industry. Your passion results in the continual growth of your skills, dedication means that rejection fails to phase you and skill serves as the outlet for your unique, artistic perspective.

Art departments in the local screen industry are booming and are undoubtedly more accessible than acting, directing or cinematography. If you are serious about this sort of this work, finding the time to hone your skills and gain new ones will put you leaps and bounds ahead of most of the competition.

CAD is a skill that I would strongly recommend for almost any aspiring designer. Being able to envision and 3D print your designs quickly is extremely empowering and makes you employable in a wealth of different industries. Rhino is the package I use in my own business and is used at Warner Brothers Studios, but Fusion360 is a great free alternative.

It is almost impossible to predict how your study will translate into work. The best and most clichéd advice I can give is to find your passion and pursue it. The film industry is historically hard to crack, and many people might tell you to do something else or to come up with an alternative in case it doesn’t work out. You’ll know that this is the industry for you when you explain to them that there isn’t one.
