Principal’s Reflection

Principal’s Reflection

The Gospel read at Mass yesterday was from Chapter 15 of St Luke’s Gospel. It was the famous story of ‘The Lost Sheep’. Luke was trying to explain to his community something of the unconditional love God has for people and his commitment to those who get lost. His listeners knew about sheep and how valued they were for survival. Luke says that God is like a shepherd who had 100 sheep but would leave all of them to go and search and find one of those sheep that had wandered off. Again, sometimes we miss something in translation in these stories. I heard of a Bishop, in a country Diocese, who was talking about this story to children. The Bishop was on a roll and thought this was a story these country kids could really relate to. He put it to the class, “What would your dads do if one of their flock of sheep wandered off and couldn’t be found?” The students were reticent to answer but after a bit of prodding from the Bishop, one brave young man said, “Bishop, Dad would say if the silly bugger was that stupid, he would let it go”.

Not quite the answer the Bishop was looking for but there was a world of difference for Luke’s community for whom an individual sheep might be the difference between life and death in outback Australia where flocks number in the tens of thousands! That doesn’t take away from the power of the parable. Luke is saying that God sees the individual as really important – not just one of a mob. All will be put on hold to make sure the lost one is found, looked after and celebrated. As a Principal of a school, I always find this parable a real challenge. We work hard to treat young people as individuals. We know that they will make mistakes – some more than others. Giving kids a second chance and a third, is what we do. Growth happens differently and no one is the same. At the same time, we have to hold young people to account and ask them to take responsibility for their actions. Sometimes that means asking someone to leave this community when they continually reject our core values. It is a real balancing act between caring for the individual and the group.

Good Luck to all of those playing in Winter Finals teams tomorrow. Shalom will be represented by 21 teams across all sports – by far the most teams of any school in the District. Again, I am enormously grateful to the staff who give their own time to enable our young people to participate in sport.

Term 3 Vacation Period – is eagerly anticipated by staff and students. Lots will be happening during that period. On Friday, our European History tour jets off. Those students will travel with our Senior & Junior Vicki Wilson Comp Netball teams and, for the first time, our Boys’ Netball team. We also have about 20 students and staff heading to Sydney for the Dance & Drama tour. Good luck and safe travels to all. In the second week of the holidays, we will have our Edmund Rice Camp. Twenty-seven of our current students will be joined by seventeen of our past students to offer a few days fun to twenty-four young people at Chaverim. This is one of the best things this College does in the year. I am very grateful for the generosity of those past and present Shalom students. They will give their all during those days. I am also, again, very grateful to the staff who will give up time in their holidays to ensure all those opportunities can be offered.

Molly Dawson has been in the thoughts and prayers of most of us at Shalom. On Friday, Molly was contacted by her Oncologist in Brisbane who told her that she is now in remission – no sign of the Cancer – thank God!!

New Classroom at Shalom – our architects are currently preparing documentation for the tender process for the new classroom block that I hope will get underway early next year. This will provide us with 14 new classrooms in a very modern and flexible learning centre. This building will be situated on the site currently occupied by our Caretakers House and the Maintenance sheds. The following links will take you to a 3D view in a YouTube clip –

Exam Stress - Special Report on School TV - Students in their final year of school are considered a high-risk group for depression and anxiety. Sleep deprivation, diet and social media are some of the biggest issues faced by this group of teens. Therefore it is vitally important that a student's mental health is looked after as well as their physical health. Keeping things in perspective for students and parents alike, can help prevent everyone getting overwhelmed. Although this final year is important, it is not necessarily the most important year of your child's life. There are many strategies that students can implement to help themselves. Parents can provide support, not only emotionally, but also practically by keeping their child well-nourished and encouraging physical activity. In this special report, parents will find useful tips to support their child during this often stressful time. We hope you take time to reflect on the information offered here and we always welcome your feedback.

Mission

Edmund Rice Camp

During the holidays 27 of our Year 12 students will give up 4 days of their holidays to attend an Edmund Rice Camp. At these camps our students are ‘big buddies’ to young children who, for a number of reasons, would benefit from 3 days of fun. Our ‘big buddies’ have run bake sales and BBQs to raise money to assist to pay for the camp. We are also grateful to our P&F for their financial support too.

Many past students will return for the camp and it is wonderful to see the Edmund Rice spirit staying strong long after school finishes. Most students would say the camp was a very positive, life changing experience.

Yr 7-9 Core Studies Learner Conferences (PT – Interviews)

The second of two opportunities this year for Year 7, 8 and 9 Core Studies Learner Conferences (Parent/Teacher Interviews) will be available on the Student Free Day of Monday 21 October. The aim of these conferences is to provide an opportunity for parents to meet with teachers to discuss the progress and learning needs of their children.

Conferences may be arranged online via the Parent Lounge. The online Parent Teacher Interview booking facility will open at 8:00am on Tuesday 8 October and close at 3:00pm on Wednesday 16 October to allow teachers to prepare for interviews.

When considering interview requests, note that Mrs Patricia Allen and Mrs Deborah Bolam will not be available for interviews on the day as they have Verification duties, however they will be available on Thursday 24 October. Please note this additional date when booking interviews online. Janeen James is also unavailable as she is on leave. If you wish to meet with Janeen, please contact her individually.

Whilst the scheduled interview day is seen as an important communication between home and school, parents are welcome to arrange an interview with specific teachers at any time the need arises throughout the year.

Please also remember that detailed information about your child’s progress is available on Parent Lounge under the ‘Curricular Activities Due’ tab. Here you can see the results and teacher feedback on every individual assessment item. This would be good to review before attending the CS Learner Conferences.

Information Technology

Laptop ADP vs Warranty

For those who are not aware or have forgotten, our Shalom HP student Laptops are all purchased with ADP (Accidental Damage Protection). ADP allows us to repair up to three laptop parts per calendar year with a processing fee of $60.50 each time a claim is logged.

Warranty allows us to claim manufacture faults on a device. There are no fees associated to a warranty claim.

Accidental Damage Protection avoids excessive out-of-pocket repair or replacement costs caused by accidents such as drops, spills or electrical surges. HP provides the final decision on whether a device will fall under ADP or not. Please note – only accidents are covered under ADP, not intentional damage.

We always do everything in our power to get the best outcome for Shalom families, however please understand that whether it’s HP or another brand, they will have the final decision on whether the issue is warranty or ADP.

End of Year Laptop Checks

In the College ICT student agreement, all students have agreed to report damage to college computers which include laptops. We know from running this program for many years that students may have damage and don’t want to part with their device. Let me please assure everyone that we have spare devices of the same models already on our spares shelf, ready to hand out.

In the coming weeks, we will commence mandatory checks on Year10 and 11 laptops to get all damage logged before the end of the calendar year. This is a necessary step as we can get all parts for the calendar year used and also have the next year starting fresh with no damage to their school laptop. It would be fantastic if students in Year 10-11 could be proactive and come in early themselves to have this logged to help beat the rush. Parents if you could help with this by checking your child’s Shalom laptop, this would be appreciated.

Year 12 students that have paid off a college laptop throughout the 3 year program are provided an option at the end of the year to get their devices repaired prior to keeping them. Although it is not mandatory for them to get their devices repaired, in most cases it is cheaper to get the laptop repaired while they still have ADP rather than paying for repairs after this year.

From previous experience, devices that are proactively brought into the department for repairs tend to have a shorter turnaround time. A delay occurs when we start bulk logging these cases with HP.

Thank you for your assistance in relation to this matter.

Quiet Achiever

Rose Kunnathuparambil Jose

This week McAuley House would like to acknowledge Rose Kunnathuparambil Jose as their quiet achiever. Rose is a terrific role model and her commitment and enthusiasm to all things McAuley is greatly appreciated by everyone in our house.

Rose never draws attention to herself but is always very aware of others who may need assistance or a kind word. She is generous with her time and will always volunteer if the need arises. Rose is also a very dedicated student achieving well in all her subjects. Rose has certainly demonstrated “MERCY” to many in the McAuley and Shalom community and we are sure she will go on to “SHINE” as she follows the path that awaits her after school.

Year 7/8 Boys – Semi-finals Results

Gin Gin SHS 30 defeated Shalom 29

The best game of the season for the Shalom Year 7/8 Boys team! The semi-finals certainly brought out an increased level of determination, effort and commitment from all Shalom players, for which they are to be commended. A very close game throughout, with Shalom leading narrowly at the first two breaks. Gin Gin fought back to lead 24-19 going in to the final quarter, and were up by seven points about half way through that period – but Shalom did not give up and played strongly to the end. A 3-pointer by Keenan Mullaney set up a frantic final minute with Shalom attacking the basket. Gin Gin defended doggedly, eventually giving a foul, with Shalom able to grab another point. However, we were beaten by the buzzer, going down by the narrowest of margins. Gin Gin go through to the finals on Tuesday against Bundaberg SHS.

All Shalom players are to be commended for their game. Keenan Mullaney, Izziah Gill and Tobias Friedrich were consistently strong in attack and defence, with Keenan easily our highest point scorer. Thomas Parton and Dillon Zielke played above their size, continually snipping and frustrating Gin Gin’s attack. Bryce Sewell was strong under the basket, as was Liam Mader who provided some good mid-court steals. Flynn Barber showed his all-round ability and determination with regular break-aways, and out-leaping taller opposition.

The boys are also to be commended on their sportsmanship and fairness in participation. Throughout the season, players rotated evenly so that each had the same amount of court time for each game. Congratulations on a season well played.
