Principal’s Reflection

I’m really pleased that ‘Schoolies Week’ is over for our young people. I am sure that the vast majority of them had a good time and celebrated safely. But, like their parents who watched them head off, I am always filled with trepidation for what potentially could go wrong. News reports last week had police showing footage of $30 million in drugs being intercepted before they arrived at the Gold Coast. As pleasing as that is, no doubt plenty got through. Yesterday’s Sunday Mail carried a very challenging feature article on some of the awful consequences of young people taking Ecstasy tablets. The article reported a police officer saying, “When we make drug arrests, we see the conditions that these drugs are manufactured in and you wouldn’t eat at their breakfast tables, let alone use a drug they’ve created.” The Editorial from yesterday’s SM is worth thinking about –

‘It’s the gnawing question that eats away at the parents of teenagers and young adults whenever their son or daughter is out partying with friends, whether at a suburban house party, Schoolies, a nightclub or music festival. Is my child safe? This natural and universal concern for parents is nothing new, but it has been heightened by a disturbing increase in the dose of illicit drugs such as MDMA which was responsible for the deaths of six young Aussies at music festivals between December 2017 and January this year. Australia has the ignominious title of being a world leader in MDMA consumption, as European based drug cartels flood our shores with tonnes of the drug; produced in filthy Dutch labs for as little as 32 cents a pill and sold for up to $30 to Aussies (Pill) tests also cannot assess the purity of pills or what effect the drugs may have on an individual user. What is certain is the prevalence of illicit drugs such as MDMA is an issue that families must confront together. Parents must arm themselves with the facts and become aware of the true extent of the problem. And teenagers and young adults must be properly educated about the risks these substances pose…”

I made my two children listen to some of the article as I read it to them. They assured me that they would never put themselves in such a situation. I hope and pray that this is true but I’m not sure that they realise how powerful the influence of their peers can be on any individual’s actions. It’s tough being a parent. Getting mutual support from other parents is a huge advantage.

Enrolments 2020 – sincere thanks to those families who have advised that their child won’t be back at Shalom next year. We wish those young people well and hope that they enjoyed their time at Shalom. Please, if your circumstances change and your child won’t be back, please let us know asap. Enrolments look to grow fairly significantly next year.

Student Welfare and Information

On Thursday 5 December, the last day of school for the Year 7s, 8s and 9s, we have organised a day of activities. On that day, we will run two sessions – a morning session and then an afternoon session.

Session 1: Intra-House Competition for the coveted Phoenix Cup – Junior Competition.
Sports: basketball, touch football, netball and soccer
Session 2: Swimming at Norville pool.

Students will walk to the pool with teachers.

Students need water bottles, towels, sunscreen and need to wear sun safe clothing.

NB: The canteen will be operating at school for lunches but not the canteen at the pool. Students may bring their own lunch of course.

Please direct any queries to me at the College.

Mission

Driving home I listen to Radio National (yes I am getting old). A man was discussing the other day how a racist comment made in parliament years ago is still having an impact on Asian people in Australia today. This was a reminder of how we need to focus on what unites us and not intentionally aim to divide people. An ill thought through comment can have lasting impact.

Then after listening to Mr McMahon’s reflection at the Year 12 graduation this prayer popped up on my newsfeed. It seemed to combine the two perfectly so I thought it worth sharing.

God of changed hearts, if I ever put off or isolate myself from the needs of others, alert me to what I am doing. Open my eyes to see what unites people rather than what divides us. Show me how to build bridges between people rather than putting up walls that divide. Amen

Quiet Achiever

Lana Bauer

McAuley House would like to acknowledge Lana Bauer as their quiet achiever. Lana is one of those students who just quietly goes about her business, working hard in class, enjoying break times, getting involved in extra-curricular activities. But the thing that sets her aside from others is the smile on her face and her warm caring nature. Lana happily says hello to people she passes on the path, she is always polite to staff and peers and never fails to offer a helping hand to others. Those qualities of MERCY shine through in all that Lana does. Her positive and gentle spirit is certainly appreciated by McAuley House and others in the Shalom community

Year 11 Excursion to Cavern of Wonders

On Tuesday 19 November, Year 11 Social and Community Studies students attended the ‘Cavern of Wonders’ art exhibition as part of their current unit on Arts and the Community. Organised by Creative Regions, the ‘Cavern of Wonders’ is part of the Milbi Festival celebrating the start of the turtle season locally. A number of local artists, along with community organisations and schools, have created a ‘virtual underwater world’ using primary recycled, repurposed and natural materials.

Students heard from the exhibition organisers as well as some of the artists involved to gain a stronger understanding of the logistics of holding a community arts event, including the purpose behind community arts such as this, issues related to funding, as well as the time, space, human and material resources required to be successful. Students will apply this knowledge as part of their assessment task when they propose a community arts project suited to the Bundaberg region.

Many thanks to Di and Wendy at Creative Regions for hosting our Shalom students, as well as artists Julie and Andree for sharing their insights as artists.

Artist Julie Highland talks to Shalom students about her turtle artwork at the ‘Cavern of Wonders’.

Artist Andree Roberts and her assistant Annie-Jo tell students about the story behind their artwork, ‘The Ocean Bride’

Camino Skies Film Screening

Former Shalom College student (Class of 2003), Noel Smyth, co-directed Camino Skies, a documentary about the famous Catholic pilgrimage, the Camino de Santiago. The most commonly walked route is over 700 kilometres from St Jean Pied de Port in France through to the resting place of Saint James in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. After walking the pilgrimage with my dad in 2016, I’m particularly passionate about sharing stories of the Camino. Camino Skies is an uplifting film about six inspirational pilgrims who embark on the historic walk.

I have teamed up with Fan Force who are aiming to screen Camino Skies at Reading Cinemas on 4 December at 6pm. Tickets are available at this link below and you can read more about Camino Skies here:

Sport

QRU Rugby 7s Tournament

On Friday afternoon 15 November, three teams from Shalom took part in the inaugural Queensland Rugby Union Bundaberg Rugby 7s Tournament, held at St Luke’s College. The tournament drew teams from Maryborough, Gladstone and Woorabinda (Wadja Wadja High School), who were all challenged by the hot and gusty conditions on the day.

The Under 13 Shalom team played in a small pool (Shalom, St Luke’s and Maryborough) with teams playing each other twice. Shalom were convincing winners, going through the afternoon undefeated to claim the pennant. Results - Round 1: Shalom 41 defeated St Luke’s 5; Shalom 26 defeated Maryborough 0. Round 2: Shalom 53 defeated St Luke’s 0; Shalom 43 defeated Maryborough 7.

The Open Shalom team also played in a pool of three (Shalom, St Luke’s and Wadja Wadja). The Open Team had patches of strong play, but could not match the consistency of St Luke’s, or the individual brilliance of some of the Wadja Wadja players. Wadja Wadja were convincing winners for the pennant. Results - Round 1: St Luke’s 12 defeated Shalom 7; Wadja Wadja 45 defeated Shalom 0. Round 2: Wadja Wadja 55 defeated Shalom 0; St Luke’s 24 defeated Shalom 0.

The Under 15 Shalom team showed the effects of limited preparation and struggled against stronger opposition. They played Bundaberg Christian College, Wadja Wadja High School, Trinity College (Gladstone) and Maryborough SHS, and while gallant in their efforts, were not able to secure a win. Results – Bundaberg Christian College 26 defeated Shalom 17; Wadja Wadja 47 defeated Shalom 5; Trinity College 34 defeated Shalom 0; Maryborough 42 defeated Shalom 0.

A huge thank you to Katrina Mulford for coaching the Under 13 team, to Connor Van Kooten and Darcy Braund for managing the Under 15 team, and to all the parents who attended and supported Shalom students on the day.

We look forward to bigger and better rugby results in the Fraser Coast 7s in March, 2020.

Rugby League

On Monday 18 November, the new senior group for Shalom Rugby League travelled to the Sunshine Coast to play Mountain Creek SHS in a trial game.

Mountain Creek SHS is a very strong Rugby League school, making the quarter-finals of the South East division of the NRL Cup which is the highest level of schoolboys Rugby League in Australia. Mountain Creek are also supported by both the Broncos and Titans (NRL Clubs) and have had a college wide League program for the past 20 years.

The Shalom team was missing some players due to injury, so were able to provide good minutes to all players. In the first of two 25 minutes halves, our middle third showed improved control in both attack and defence. This resulted in two tries, shared by Flynn Purkis and Caileb Dimes. The second half followed a similar pattern with two more tries to Flynn Purkis and Wil Simmons. The final result was a win to Shalom: 16-8 (no kicking at goal).

As a trial game, the coaching staff were happy with some improvements in key areas; however, the group understands that significant improvement is possible in other key areas, and needs to occur moving into term one next year.

A big thanks goes out to the coaching staff that accompanied the team to Mountain Creek: Mr Kaufusi, Mr Gahan and Mr Tobin. Another big thanks goes out to the Staff and students at Mountain Creek SHS for being very hospitable hosts.

Catholic Schools Race Day 14 March 2020

Tickets on Sale Now

Tickets are now on sale for the 2020 Catholic Schools Race Day, please click on the link below to purchase your tickets online.

https://www.trybooking.com/BGNQO

As the year is coming to a close it is time to start putting in Event Dates for next year, the start of a new decade. Our 2020 Race Day event will be our 15th. How time flies. For those who are new to our Schools and aren’t aware of our annual event, a committee of past and present Parents and Teacher representatives from our three Catholic Primary Schools and Shalom College combine to organise a relaxed and classy get together at Thabeban Park Racecourse.

The day is full of activity with the running of five local Races, Fashion Parade, Fashions of the Field competition, a huge Raffle with a bundle of excellent prizes, all under the comfort of our Private Marquee area with two bars catering for our 500 guests. Food supplied throughout the day is catered for by students, staff and volunteers from Shalom and the Bars and Gate are manned by volunteers from all four Catholic Schools. It is a wonderful opportunity to catch up with friends from the past and present of our Catholic School community and all money raised on the day is donated directly to the four schools for special projects of their choice. We have many very generous sponsors, some who have been supporting our event for its entire 14 years, and without them, along with our many volunteers, the day would not be the success it is.

At our upcoming event, the past students from Shalom, the 2010 and 2000 Year 12 cohorts are celebrating their 10 and 20 Year Reunions. Past students from the 1990 cohort are celebrating their 30 Year Reunion a week later here in Bundaberg, but also are welcome to double up on their celebration and join us at Thabeban Park.

I can be contacted on my Mobile 0419787279, or alternatively Mrs Teresa Cameron at Shalom College on 41558137 if there are any enquiries in relation to our Race Day regarding sponsorships, volunteering or ticket sales. Any past students looking for information in relation to their 10, 20 or 30 year reunions can contact the following representatives through the Facebook pages set up for their event or phone:

2010 Kurt Dempsey 0498 066 555
