The scourge of illicit drugs is something that all schools must combat forcefully. At BDC, we are no more immune from this issue than any other school in the country. Education is the best defense against drug use and experimentation. In the coming weeks, I will outline our Drug Policy to each of the year groups in Secondary, making clear the consequences of involvement with illicit or unsanctioned drugs. We will also involve members of the PDHPE department in these sessions, as well as our local police liaison officer. Our Illicit and Unsanctioned Substance (Drug) Policy can be found on this link. I have heard talk of some dangerous experimentation taking place among some of our students. Mr Murgatroyd will work with Year Coordinators to highlight the dangers at play with some of these ‘rumours’. Particularly, there has been talk of some students inhaling aerosols – and a similarly alarming story of misusing paracetamol. These are rumours and stories until either the act is uncovered or evidence is irrefutable. In the meantime, we must do everything we can to educate our young people about the dangers of experimenting with aerosols and non-prescription drugs. Please have this conversation with your children. For the vast majority, it will be unnecessary, but for a few it might give them the understanding they need to make a safe choice in the face of peer group pressure. Keeping our young people safe from drugs is a partnership we adults must take seriously. We will always act on credible information, and will increase supervision if an alarm is raised about risky behaviour. GAP Year Year 12 students who are interested in taking a GAP year at a school in the UK should consider an application via ‘Tutors Worldwide’. This is a well-known organisation that selects and places students in UK schools. I have had some experience with this organisation at one of my former schools, so am happy to recommend it to any of our Year 12 students. The key is to act promptly. Applications close without exception on 10 April. University experience in Japan I received information from Waseda University (one of Japan’s most prestigious) in Tokyo about their School of International Liberal Studies program. No Japanese language is required to attend the course. Japanese language study is a part of the course at Waseda. Interested students should collect an application form from Mrs Crisp in the Careers Lounge. Congratulations this week to all of those competitors, spectators and staff who made the Primary and Secondary swimming carnivals so successful. Special thanks must go to Mr Webber and Mrs Hilton whose organisation made the carnivals possible. The tremendous results from the carnivals are contained in the sports section of this newsletter. Hats We had an unexpected delay in our hat distribution - we ran out of M and had no XXL. The big hats have arrived along with an interim supply of M hats (almost the same weight etc. of the original order). We will issue the interim supply of M hats on Monday and Tuesday next week. When the correct version of the M size arrives, students will be able to collect it from the Uniform Shop at no extra charge. Leave: Exemption from School Attendance Students taking leave for a family event, attendance at a sporting event, exceptional circumstance, etc. must provide a completed Application for Exemption Form (available on College Website) to the Principal. On receipt the Principal will issue a Certificate of Exemption that is provided to the parents/caregivers. Student Medical Information Parents/Caregivers are requested to notify the College of any medical conditions pertaining to their child to ensure that we have all current information on our records, including immunisation history. Updated information should be provided to the Registrar in writing or email secretary@ bdc.nsw.edu.au If a student requires prescription or non-prescription medication at school it must be registered by a parent/caregiver at the Primary or Secondary Office and a medication request form completed. No student should carry or selfadminister medication whilst at school. Alan Ball Principal

College News

A Counter-cultural Response! “You have heard that it has been said, ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth’…but I tell you, do not take revenge on someone who wrongs you.” Matthew 5:38 The demand for payback and revenge has become a frequent and somewhat common theme in today’s society. News reports of payback in the form of shootings and violence are a regular occurrence. As a child when I complained to my mother about someone who had treated me badly she would say to me. “Two wrongs don’t make a right”, and than when I questioned her and asked her why, she would say… “Y is a crooked letter and you cannot straighten it!” Most us feel wronged and treated unfairly sometime during our lives. The question we all have to answer is, “how will we react in those circumstances?” An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth is certainly one way to react, but as Jesus said, “do not take revenge”. Exacting revenge will cause more pain and anguish for all creation. Unfortunately humankind seems to be unwilling to offer forgiveness and at many times demands retaliation and retribution. This passage from Matthew’s gospel is one that needs to be contemplated and requires deep thought and reasoning and should not be reduced to superficial advice. Originally the words were expressed as a legal principle, which still governs order in our society. Where wrong has been done there should be equivalent compensation as assessed by a court of law. You steal a cow? Then you must restore it or restore what it is worth. Bill Loader says, “When taken out of context this passage has been read as demanding that people suffering abuse should not speak up, but turn the other cheek and put up with it – a reading with tragic consequences, including in relation to domestic violence, for instance.” Scripture is to be delved into and analysed if we are to take it seriously. Jesus spoke at length about the need for forgiveness and forgiving. Forgiving another who has wronged you is not a natural reaction, we tend to become indignant and want justice on our terms. Mahatma Gandhi in his wisdom said, “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” The action of forgiving is countercultural, however it is important that we must continue to remember that every human person is of value; no one is to be written off. Everyone needs to be forgiven; there is no place for hateful retaliation, such as the misuse of “eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth” as its justification. ‘Y’ is a crooked letter and you cannot straighten it…but you can contemplate it’s meaning! Blessings Rev David Morgan Assistant Chaplain

secondary school from the Acting head of secondary One of the many ways for students and families to be involved in school and to gain the most from educational opportunities is for home and school to work as a partnership. One of the most important elements of this partnership is communication. I encourage all parents to communicate with us regularly. Through this regular communication we can often avoid points of stress and frustration. It is not always possible for teachers to be available to take phone calls but they are able to respond to emails. While everything is not suited to communication via emails, it can be used to set a time that is convenient for both parties to talk. Communication from school is also very important and a regular point of frustration for teachers has been the way some students wear their uniform. I would like to ask parents to support us by reinforcing the college’s expectations and guidelines. We have regular conversations with some students about uniforms, in particular about correct shoes, hair that needs to be tied back, skirts that are too short, excess makeup and jewellery. At the beginning of the year when talking to year groups we emphasised with students that negative conversations about uniform are very boring for both teachers and students. As teachers, we would prefer to have more interesting conversations with students and I am sure students would enjoy this more also. Support from home to reinforce the college uniform policy would be greatly appreciated. If you are unsure about any aspects of the uniform there is information in the student diaries, on the college website and we are also happy to respond to email or phone questions. The organisation of the school day in secondary has also changed this year and we now have a ten minute Roll Call on Tuesday to Friday morning at 8.45am. This is an opportunity for students to meet with their tutor teachers, be given important information for the day and for their pastoral care teacher to ‘touch base’ with them. While we do have some buses that sometimes arrive late in the mornings this roll call time is important and I ask parents to support students to be organised and punctual as much as possible. Thank you for your ongoing help and support with these daily routines that make many other things at BDC possible. Carmel Spry Acting Assistant Principal (Head of Secondary)

PUBLIC SPEAKING OPPORTUNITY

College News

Dear Parents and Carers, If you have been hoping to persuade your charges that the time has come to tackle their public speaking skills, hope no longer! The time has come, the opportunity is here, all we need is the sound of feet tramping towards D1 at lunchtime on Thursdays in week B, with lunch clutched in their hands. We will welcome all comers, from the curious and intrigued, to the serious public speaking competitors. In a relaxed and supportive environment, we will overcome fear of performance, and build skills in prepared and impromptu speaking skills. We will learn techniques that have enlivened public speaking for two thousand years, and we will learn to woo and win over audiences. I also need you to help me find two fantastic candidates for the NSW Legacy Junior Public Speaking Award, which the school will be entering this year in mid March. It is open to those 14 years old or younger on 1 January 2014. Since I am new to the school, I shall depend on your knowledge as much as on mine. All right, I give in. I will depend on your knowledge more than on mine. Send me an email (jnash@bdc.nsw.edu.au), and send me your children, urge, cajole and encourage them to grasp opportunities when they present themselves. If they leave school and have to pay to learn these skills, it will cost enough to cause severe indigestion for a month to the average citizen. I look forward to reporting regularly what we get up to. Jeremy Nash English Faculty

VISUAL ARTS This is an early call to any students interested in submitting an artwork for ‘Westmead Operation Art Competition’ to please come and see me for details and restrictions. There are limited spaces available and this is a wonderful opportunity for any students interested in submitting a work that inspires and cheers up sick children in hospitals around Australia! Entries close 9th May but we will submit chosen works before this date. Last year Tori Yardley’s (Year 8) artwork was chosen for exhibition! Rebecca Brown Visual Arts Faculty

SCIENCE On Tuesday 11 March, Education Interactive will be presenting a forensic science workshop for all Year 9 science students. The session will run for 1 hour and will cost $10. This is a compulsory event and will automatically be billed to parents accounts. Juliette Law Science Faculty

primary school from the head of primary It was lovely to see parents at the P & F Welcome the other night. It is important for children to see that their carers are not just dropping them at the school gate but also taking an interest in what is going on at the school and with their children. At BDC we value the partnerships of parents in helping to enrich the learning opportunities of our students. We provide many opportunities, both formal and informal, for you as parents and carers to find out about your children’s progress at school. We provide a written report twice a year that is emailed to parents at the end of each semester. There is usually an e-portfolio attached so you can view examples of your child’s work. We publish a weekly newsletter to inform parents, caregivers and community members about school activities, developments and initiatives. We communicate information via email and sometimes by letter relating to specific issues and on-goings. Please ensure we have your updated email address. In Term 1 and Term 3 teachers conduct parent/student/teacher interviews. Parents are expected to attend these as it is an opportunity for the child to show what they have been doing in class and also an opportunity for teachers and parents to discuss any issues. Information evenings are held at specific times each year. For instance, we have a meeting at the beginning of the year for all parents. We also have specific nights that are advertised, some for our parents only, some for the whole community. Our next big meeting will be “Helping students who learn differently” on 5 March (see flyer at the end of this newsletter)

Parents can be involved in a range of school activities such as assisting in the classroom, helping with excursions, or offering their expertise to help organise extracurricular activities such as sports carnivals and musicals. We also appreciate any volunteers in the canteen, even if it is only for one day a month. The P&F plays an important role in our school, helping with fundraising, school functions and keeping abreast of what is happening in the school. They meet on the third Monday of each month and Alan Ball, Carmel Spry and myself all give a report on what is happening in our school. We value you, our parents, and we value the relationships we build with you all. I encourage you all to take part in your child’s schooling by taking each opportunity offered to come to the school, to talk with the teachers, to ask questions and to take a full and enthusiastic role in the education of your children. Karin Lisle Assistant Principal (Head of Primary)

writers of the week 2D Imaginative Writing Students in 2D have been reading a variety of picture fiction texts to inspire their imaginations. They have written some wonderful and very sweet pieces in response. Imagine a place where lollies surround you and you can eat them all. You lie in candyfloss and get to see the lolly Queen. The servants show you around and you love the smell. It feels so soft. You can jump in the jelly. You would love to go there. You would just love it. By Caitlin Kerr Imagine a place where there were traps made out of lollies. You walk into this chamber made out of fairyfloss. You try to eat your way out of it. It doesn’t work. You need to keep walking down the chamber. You find a tin. You open it. There is a lollipop. You are very hungry. You decide to eat it. When you take your first lick you turn fat. Then you wished you did not eat it. Then a door opened on the left of you. You decide to go into it but you are too fat. Then your mum walks in the door and pulls you into your room. Then the door disappeared and your mum. By Mala Brooks-Andren Imagine a place where there is lolly bush. It looks like candy canes. It feels like gummy bears. It smells like chocolate. I would like to go there and eat it. I would like it to grow again. By Archer Flowers

Isabella Crowe (2D) Belle’s Lovely World

In 5W’s HSIE unit we have been looking at how far our food travels to get to our plate and the effects this has on our environment. We wrote an exposition where we asked to agree or disagree to the statement “We should help the Coffs Coast farmers by buying our food locally”. Tyler Widdowson decided that he felt it was important that we buy our food locally: I strongly believe that people should buy food that is grown locally. Firstly, if we buy our food localyl instead of from other countries we don’t have to pollute our water systems. This could happen if a ship sinks and the oil spills into the ocean and kills all the wildlife. Secondly, it would be healthier if you bought local. The countries are far away from here and food can get old and will not be as fresh. Local food would be more tender. Lastly, it helps keep the money in our local area and can be used to build things for us to use.

E C I V R SE

This is why I definitely think that we should get our food local.

college sport swimming Thank goodness the forecasted showers and storms did not eventuate for either the Senior Primary or Secondary Carnivals this week. Mind you, with the humidity we had to endure, I was glad we were running swimming and not athletics! Once again we had great participation from primary and secondary students, and I have to compliment all students who attended for their incredible team spirit and sportsmanship they displayed over the two carnivals. I would like to publicly acknowledge the help that our fantastic staff gave on Monday and Tuesday, and also the contribution of a number of parents who helped with timing and Meet Manager on both days. Thanks also to Beth Hilton for her tireless work with the set-up of both carnivals and assistance on both days.
