Principal’s Reflection

Principal’s Reflection

I got a really nice email last week from an older gentleman around town after an article I wrote was published in the Parish Newsletter. As a Catholic, he reflected, with a bit of sorrow, that despite all the years his kids happily attended Catholic schools that they don’t often go to Church. He went on to say what good kids they were and how proud of them he was. Shortly after, I read something from Benedicten Nun, Sr Joan Chittister who was writing about how desperately we need prophets. She wrote,

Everywhere there are people who, despite finding themselves mired in periods of national darkness or personal marginalization refuse to give up the thought of a better future. They never lose hope that the values learned in the best of times or the courage it takes to reclaim their world from the worst of times are worth the commitment of their lives.

It is to these average
but courageous people
who forever seek the truth,
defend the weak,
bring the peace,
and always, always, always, stand up
to protest injustice – (that are the hope of the world).

I think my friend who emailed me would recognize that in his kids. I hope that I will always see it in my kids. Faith, spirituality, goodness, religion are all best found in how we live and respond to the needs in front of us on any given day.

Final QCS Test will be Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Every best wish to all of our Year 12 students who will be sitting this. Given the changes being brought in with the ATAR system, the QCS papers will be resigned to history following 2019.

Year 9 & 10 Reflection Days will be held this week. These are really important parts of our curriculum at Shalom and I would ask that parents ensure that every student attends – barring emergency. The information the students receive on these days is really valuable in the process of them becoming young adults.

David Kobler will be offering a presentation for parents on Wednesday night at 6.30pm. We have had David present before and I really cannot recommend this talk to parents more highly. I wish I could make it compulsory to attend!!

Student Welfare & Information

National Child Protection Week

Sunday, 1 September marks the start of National Child Protection Week, coordinated by the National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (NAPCAN). The aim of the week is to engage members of the community in supporting families and protecting children. We can help to support and safeguard young people by being active listeners when children communicate with us, ensuring they feel heard and respected. NAPCAN provides the following information on listening to young people.

Understanding young people

Being a teenager or young adult is a challenging time. Young people are trying to make sense of the world around them and find their own place in it. They are becoming more independent and less reliant on their parents. They may seem confident and grown-up on the outside, but they are often very self-conscious, and unsure of themselves inside. Hormonal changes can upset young people’s emotional balance and judgement, leading to impulsive and risky behaviour. Science now tells us that a young person’s brain isn’t fully developed until the late twenties. So, throughout their teenage years, young people still need our support and encouragement. We can give them this by being patient, checking in on how they are going and listening when they want us to.

Why listening is important

Young people need to be able to express their ideas and values without feeling they are being judged. They want to fit in with their friends and may not speak up about how they really feel, especially if this means not going along with risky behaviour, or expressing unpopular views. They may also feel they can’t talk to their parents or carers because the adults won’t understand. When young people seem stand-offish and dismissive, it’s tempting to take it personally, however, this is often just part of ‘normal’ adolescent behaviour. It’s important to be patient, stop what we are doing and listen to them seriously.

How to be a good listener for a young person:

Show interest

Ask open-ended questions that begin with ‘How’, ‘Why’ or ‘What do you think / feel about…’ This might encourage longer answers than ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.

Show respect

Show respect by listening to young people’s ideas thoughtfully and respecting their need for space and time alone. We can feel privileged when a young person shares a problem with us. Offer ideas but help them to come up with their own solutions.

Avoid being bossy

It is tempting to ask a question, then jump in with what we think or want to be the right answer! Offer young people your opinion, guidance and support but also respect their ideas.

Allow for silences

If young people don’t reply immediately, just leave the conversation open. They may come back to you later.

Be patient and find the right moment

Notice when a young person is more likely to talk. Suggest going out for coffee to get some one-on-one time together.

Encourage family discussions

Encourage family discussions where everybody’s views are invited and respected, however different.

Build in family get-together times

BBQ’s, picnics, nature walks or once-a-week family dinners are good opportunities for relaxed talk.

Other adults can help too

If you think your young person has a problem they would rather discuss with another adult, try not to be offended. Ask them who else could help or suggest another adult that both of you respect.

Get to know their friends

Suggest they bring friends home and spend some time chatting with them. Friends are often happy to talk to other people’s parents. It might encourage your young person to open up more with you.

Let the young person know you are there

No matter how independent they may seem, young people need to know you are there for them, even if you don’t always agree. Remember… Sometimes parents or carers need to over-rule a young person, particularly if it comes to their safety. If you have shown in the past that you respect their opinions, young people will be more likely to accept your decisions on matters needing an adult’s judgement.

Get help if you need it

Being a parent or carer of a teenager or young adult can be very confusing. If you are worried your young person has a problem with work, schools, addiction, relationships or cultural issues, seems too withdrawn, or is acting strangely, then speak to a professional. As the College Counsellor, I am available to provide support, alternatively, the following organisations may also provide information and support:

Reflection Days

Year 10 Students will attend single sex sessions with Katie and David Kobler on 4 September, and Year 9 on 5 September. These sessions are explained in the information sheets that can be found in the links. These are very important days for our students and we recommend you discuss with your child what they learned on these days.

A Must for All Parents! Wednesday 4 September at 6:30pm in the Shalom Performing Arts Precinct.

This year David and Katie Kobler will present a program called “Screenagers”. This program has received rave reviews and is intended for parents and their children. It is strongly recommended that parents attend and you are welcome to bring along your teenagers. Here are some reviews.

"Screenagers is a very balanced, sympathetic and sane look at the way millions of teens are struggling with phones and games and technology in general. In part by letting the teens themselves speak about their own concerns and solutions, Screenagers is deeply affecting, too." Dave Eggers, Best-Selling Author, Publisher and Education Activist

"My 13 year old son and I watched the film Screenagers together. The impact of the film was so great, that all on his own, when the movie ended, my son announced that he would voluntarily be relinquishing his computer for a week. In the end, he was off completely for 10 days, and when he did get back on he started setting a timer and sticking to his own self-imposed time limits." Nancy B., PTA, Chair of Parent-Education MVMS PTSA

Students not sitting the test have signed an understanding indicating that they will complete work experience or VET tasks on the two days they do not attend school.

Students must have signed a Calculator Declaration indicating an understanding of calculator requirements/compliance.

Students have been told to bring to school all equipment needed for the day’s tasks, but only take in to the test the specified equipment for each particular sub-test.

There will be a QCS Test briefing in Period 4 on Monday 2 September, followed by early dismissal of students.

Any OP-eligible student who is sick on one or both of the test days must obtain a medical certificate that provides details of the condition (not simply ‘a medical condition’) and seek me as soon as possible to complete an Application for absentee exemption. If approved, the application allows an OP to be issued to the student.

Students have been emailed ‘Instructions to Students’ published by QCAA which details equipment and processes that students should know. The document may also be accessed via the following link:

For Year 8, 9 and 10 students and parents

Subject selection submissions were due on 30 August. Timetable work will begin this week, using the particular combinations of subjects submitted online.

The combinations of subjects in late submissions may not be able to be accommodated because lines are set according to choices lodged. Therefore, if any student still has to register choices online, they are advised to do so immediately because the portal will close on 4 September.

All students must submit a signed online preference slip: Year 8 and 9 students are to drop these at Student Reception; Year 10 students must attach to the SETPlan form and return to their SETPLan interviewer.

2020 Year 10 Laptop Program

Thank you to our Year 9 parents who have responded to us quickly so we can organise the amount of laptops to order. As our 2020 Year 7 group are also moving to laptops, we have a very large order to place. All replies are now in, your decision is now locked in for the next three years.

For our BYO (Bring Your Own) Laptop students, please make sure you monitor the below URL for any software changes. As we are now forward planning for 2020, I will be working with our Learning Area Coordinators to confirm software packages for 2020.

BYO (Bring Your Own) iPads Year 7-9

Just a reminder to our parents and students about the iPad expectations. The iPad must last until the end of Year 9 at Shalom. Our curriculum in Middle School is based around iPads and certain iPad apps. Please remember that if something happens to your device, Shalom does not provide spares for BYO iPads or Laptops.

The next version of Apple’s iPad operating system (OS) will be coming out soon and it’s called iPadOS. We have advised students to not update their device when the operating system is released so the IT Unit has a chance to test and make sure the operating system is compatible with our network. To see more about iPad OS and what iPads are compatible, please check the following URL below.

Ocean to Plate – Year 12 Aquatic Practices

Year 12 Aquatic Practices students have just completed their unit ‘Ocean to Plate’ where they investigated how seafood in Queensland is caught or produced. As part of the unit, students went on an excursion to Grunskes by the River. Many thanks to Sian from Grunskes for showing us around the business and providing excellent information on supplying seafood – from trawler to retail store, including practical elements of catching and handling seafood, as well as the regulations involved.

As part of their assessment, students investigated how a particular type of seafood is caught / produced in Queensland, then chose a seafood dish to cook. As part of this element, students also investigated quality, hygiene and safety aspects in choosing, storing, preparing and cooking of their chosen seafood. There were varying degrees of challenges in the actual cook-up, but the end result was some delicious seafood dishes.

Iglu Academic Excellence Scholarship

We are pleased to announce the inaugural Iglu Academic Excellence Scholarship (IAES) that will be awarded to ONE graduating student who will study in Brisbane in 2020. Iglu is a purpose-built student accommodation provider with two properties; Kelvin Grove and Brisbane City located in close proximity to QUT Kelvin Grove and Gardens Point as well as UQ.

The scholarship recognises great school community involvement and academic success and covers 50% of a student’s first year of accommodation at Iglu in Brisbane. This would mean the potential to save up to $7000 on university accommodation in the first year. Opportunities of the scholarship include the potential to come back to Shalom College to award the scholarship to the following year’s recipient, and to become a paid Resident Leader at Iglu.

The Scholarship flyer as well as the Application Form. If you would like to apply for the scholarship, please complete and submit the application by Friday 14 September.

Construction White Card Training

Students considering undertaking work experience in the construction industry must hold a General Construction White card. This is a requirement under Queensland’s workplace health and safety legislation. As per government legislation, courses are no longer delivered online and can only be completed via a one-day workshop.

On Friday, 13 September, Blue Dog Training will be holding a one-day White Card training course at Shalom for interested students in Years 10, 11 and 12. The cost will be $69. Please see the Pathways Office to register your interest with urgency as numbers are limited and registration paperwork will need to be completed.

CQU QTAC Session

Year 12 students are invited to attend the QTAC Information Session – A Student’s Perspective on Monday, 16 September at 11.25am in Loyola. Following on from the QTAC Information Session last month, this information session is particularly valuable because students will have the opportunity to hear from a CQU student ambassador and gain information from a student’s perspective. Student Ambassadors have very recently traversed the QTAC journey and have the ability to share their tips and answer student’s questions.

Quiet Achiever

Chelsea Brooks

Chelsea Brooks is one of our MacKillop PC4 seniors. Chelsea is certainly a quiet achiever, recently being awarded one of only four regional prizes for her artwork at the Emerge Exhibition of Bundaberg Regional High School student artwork. Chelsea is also a very talented netballer; she was selected in the Shalom QISSN team this year, contributing to their 12th placing out of 64 teams. Chelsea is currently a member of the successful Vicki Wilson Cup Shalom College Team, which has qualified for the State Finals by progressing through to the top 20 teams in the state. Chelsea is also a reliable role model within MacKillop, always well presented, friendly and considerate of those around her.

China Strings Tour

We would like to congratulate and recognise Year 11 student, Ella Marschke, who was recently selected to represent our school playing her double bass in a music group that will visit Bundaberg’s sister city Nanning in China on a cultural exchange. The group comprises 12 students from high schools across our region including representatives from Gin Gin SHS and Isis SHS. Organisers of this trip have spoken very highly of Ella saying that she is contributing at an excellent standard musically and that she has a great attitude to learning and being part of the team. The group will leave Australia on 15 September and will perform a selection of Australiana music for their Chinese audiences. Well done, Ella.

You Raise Me Up

This was a concert organised by Suellen Cusack-Greensill and staged in the Holy Rosary Church on Friday, 23 August with profits going to the ‘Love Your Sister’ charity. The Shalom College Vocal Ensemble were invited to join with local youth vocal group, Vocal Affinity to sing at the event. The venture was extremely successful and the ‘full house’ audience received the combined vocal groups very well. The church looked amazing with lights and smoke machine all of which added to the ambience of the performances. Thank you to all students who sang beautifully.

Sustainable Garden Report

Over the last few weeks, in the garden, we’ve been focusing on setting up the compost bin, planting and keeping on top of the weeds; especially the dreaded nutgrass, the bane of all gardeners’ lives. As we are trying to always take the organic approach our main strategy has been to dig out all the roots, ensuring removal of all the bulbs or nuts from under the soil surface. If you’ve ever had to do this task you will know the process can be tedious. We will be trying a new organic approach, suggested by one of our Garden Club members, using a mixture of sugar and water to spray the nutgrass with. Some further research on this method revealed that it was indeed a possible strategy for reducing this weed. So along with the old digging method and experimentation with the sugar method, we will persist.

Nutgrass can be extremely invasive

Another project up and running is our compost bin. Garden Club has collaborated with the catering department to gather green waste for composting. This project has been made possible by some members of our Shalom community. Coffee grinds from a local café and most recently the donation of two bales of straw, another great resource that will be used for mulching and composting in the garden. Thanks to Mr Gahan for the kind donation of the bales of straw.

The composting project is a great way for the students to learn about lowering their carbon footprint. As methane is one of the greenhouse gases released when food scraps decompose in land fill, composting is an excellent way of reducing methane levels. The students are now aware of the small ways we can all contribute towards the war on waste and caring for our environment.

Maybe we can’t do everything, but we can all work towards caring for our world, one small step at a time.

Bundaberg SHS 32 defeated Shalom 20

A rough day at the office for the boys on Wednesday. In our first loss for the season, nothing seemed to fall Shalom’s way – the ball just did not want to go in the basket, while it seemed Bundaberg SHS couldn’t miss! A gritty but fair game. Full credit to Bundy High for their win. The boys will no doubt bounce back next week.
