From the Headmaster Season’s Greetings As this is our last Bulletin for 2018, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all members of our Learning Community a happy, safe and holy Christmas and a wonderful New Year. 2018 has been a very busy and productive year for our School, with lots of ups and downs, and I am grateful to all of our members, teachers, parents and students, for the contributions you have all made and the support you have given over the course of the year. I hope the coming weeks allow our families to enjoy a more relaxed pace at home or on vacation, and to spend some time simply enjoying each others’ company.

VCE Results Assistance 2018 Year 12 VCE results will be published on Friday 14 December 2018. We wish our students well and hope they receive the results they deserve. Our Careers Counsellor, Mrs Lynette Reiger and other senior staff will be at School on Friday 14 December, and Monday 17 December to Wednesday 19 December to offer assistance and counselling to students, should they wish, and to assist with any changes of preferences. Appointments are strongly advised, and can be made with Ms Jan Sangster on 9835 1777.

I was delighted to be able to attend the final Junior School Soiree for the year on Wednesday evening in the Performing Arts Centre. Our Junior School students performed magnificently, in groups large and small, before a very appreciative audience. It was great to see so many family groups performing too – it is very special for families to be able to make music together. Congratulations and thanks to Mrs Helen Thomas and our Music staff who again put the evening together.

Summer Vacation Activities Over December and January, a significant number of our students will be involved in school-related activities. Some of the highlights of the vacation program include: USA Basketball Tour (1 to 21 December) 28 students will be travelling along the West Coast of the USA, playing a number of games throughout the Washington state origin and California. Along the way, they will be attending a number of NBA an NFL games.

Middle School Kangaroobie Year 8 continued their transition into Senior School this week, with their Camp at Kangaroobie. It was terrific to see the boys immerse themselves in all of the challenging activities that many have never had the opportunity to experience; reinforcing the values of learning, courage, respect, integrity and optimism. The activities required the boys to work together, galvanizing bonds that will assist them through the remainder of the time school. I am sure that the boys will return; tired, very proud of their achievements during the week, and most grateful for the creature comforts of home. Many thanks to all of the staff who spent time away from their own families over this time.

FareShare Christmas Pasta Drive This term the Middle School has been collecting pasta for Fareshare to help feed those less fortunate over Christmas. Aj Ananthapavan and Sam Keenan (both Year 7) did a wonderful job driving this initiative and ought to be very proud of collecting over 571kg of pasta!

Stepping Up Day On Thursday Year 5 stepped up to Year 6. I commend the boys, who made a wonderful first impression and we welcomed new boy- Sam Grlj. We were also delighted to introduce Mr Dominic McLaughlin to the boys, Page 2

who is taking over Year 6 from Mrs Helen Papageorgiou. The day consisted of a number of activities aimed at making the boys more familiar with their new environment.

Troy Stanley, Head of Middle School

Junior School Looking back on 2018 How quickly the school year seems to have gone! In a handful of days, the school year will conclude and the Junior School will bid farewell to a wonderful group of Year 5 boys, thank them for their contribution to the school, and wish them well in their next stage of schooling. The recent Ensemble Soiree, Junior Athletics, Billy Cart Derby, Year 3 Camp, among many other memorable activities, captured the essence of what we believe about being a great school for boys. The boys playing musical instruments, performing and singing in choirs and also the boys participating in the athletics and sports programs, and working hard on their academics, all added to a developing and deepening of their character and their humanity. It is through these experiences and hundreds of others like them, such as the Year 4 camp at Anglesea, Year 5 at Lancefield and the Year 3 Gundiwindi Camp, excursions far and wide, projects and challenges, that our boys learn a lot, including much about themselves. They developed a sense of belonging as they shared their ‘journey’ with others. That journey will not always be easy going, and quite often it is when times are tough, or when we feel out of our depth, that we learn the most. But there will always be those wonderful moments, those joyful times of celebration and achievement to nourish us. Over the course of the year, much has been achieved. Some of it has involved significant changes, much has been fine-tuning. What enables us to become better as a school, as a community, is the quality of the partnership between home and school. Our Junior School is blessed with an incredibly supportive community, and they show it in a lot of ways – working together to solve problems, checking diaries, friend and fundraising events, helping out in classrooms, running special events, Open Days and barbecues. It is all important – it all matters – and it all makes this a better place for your sons. I am extremely grateful to all who have contributed and especially our ‘Friends of Norge’, who under the dedicated leadership of Jenny Thurlby, Ivy Lun and Roula Andreopoulos, Atid Page and Isabelle Tilley, have added great value to our Junior School experience. We welcome our new FON members for 2019, Janet Cheung, Debbie Cheong and Cindy Koay.

End of Year Music Performances What a marvellous week of music we have enjoyed. Thank you all for your support of our many musicians of Junior School. The Ensemble Soiree held, on Wednesday night to a capacity audience, was a celebration of Instrumental Music in the Junior School. In a fitting thank you to Mrs Marcelle Drummond, the Junior School Orchestra played with exquisite sound. We will miss her kindness and leadership of the Junior School Orchestra after more than 20 years. All Ensembles and family items gave us a thoroughly entertaining concert. Year 5 Graduation on Tuesday 4 December at 6.00pm, will feature all the boys performing in Year 5 Ensemble. Year 5 students are asked to be at the PAC by 5.40pm. The Junior School Carol Service will take place at St Mark’s next Thursday 6 December at 11.00am. We hope you are able to join us for the celebration of the Christmas story as we bring the year to a close.

Final Day Dismissal – Thursday, 6 December The Christmas Church service will finish at approximately 12.00 noon and all boys will be dismissed from the Church to leave with their parents. This impressive service brings our year to a fitting conclusion and all families are invited to attend. The boys have prepared special Christmas carols for you to enjoy. We kindly request that cameras are not used during the Church service. Please note the following: • On this day, boys are to bring recess snack, not lunch, to school in disposable bags. We ask that school bags are not brought to school. • For this special occasion school uniform should be worn in the best possible condition with polished Page 3

Sport Cycling and Kayaking Squads School Sport for most students has finished for the year; however, the Cycling and Kayaking squads continue their training in preparation for their final events. Cycling will be competing in their second Criterium for the season at the Kew Teardrop on Saturday 8 December, while Kayaking have their season’s major event, the Ben Ward Memorial 40 Miler, at Cobram on Saturday and Sunday of the same weekend.

Basketball and Tennis Last weekend, First Basketball and Tennis hosted Trinity. First Basketball were outplayed and went down 29-60, but there was better news on the tennis courts with a resounding 13 sets to 3 victory. Number 1, Isaac Hui (Year 9), won all of his matches, as did youngsters Lachlan Wei (Year 8), Ashwin Prabaharan (Year 8) and Matthieu Gibert (Year 7). Unfortunately, First Cricket were washed out of their match on the KAO.

Triathalon Results The Triathlon squad competed in Race 1 of the 2XU Triathlon Series held at Elwood last Sunday. Mr Allen and Dr Smith had the following report on the day’s events: Of the 2,000 competitors at the first race of the season, few other than CGS Triathlon captain, Harry Swingler (Year 11), would have been disappointed that the swim was cancelled owing to the results of stormy weather. Yet, even for the Duathlon event (Run, Bike, Run), this Sunday morning proved to be icy cold at Elwood, with a biting wind and a shower of rain at the start of the race. Nevertheless, the small Camberwell Grammar squad were most competitive, offering much promise for the long season. In the shorter race, Freddy Askew (Year 11) raced strongly in the M12-13 category, finishing 24th shortly followed by Thomas Kohne (Year 7) coming 37th. Billy Swingler (Year 8) continues to improve in the M14-15 bracket, taking 13th place, and presenting himself well for the cameras. In the full Sprint race, Charlie Chun (Year 8), also the M14-15 group, somehow entered himself in a more elite category, yet finished in the commendable time of 1.14.56. Camberwell Grammar’s best triathlete of the day was Harry Swingler (Year 11), taking 18th place in the M1519 category, in a time of 1.06.46, in a field of 46 competitors. He was closely followed be Alex Lew (Year 9) 23rd and Charlie Harper (Year 11), 28th. The next triathlon will be held at Sandringham on Sunday 9 December.

Squash Results The Camberwell Grammar Squash squad had their last round of the year last weekend and the Squash Captain, Nicholas Gooden (Year 11), had the following summary of events: The final round of this year saw some strong results for the Squash squad. The Firsts played the Seconds again, with the Seconds eventual winners scoring 3 – 2 rubbers. The Thirds and Sixths had a bye this week, which was well earned after their efforts throughout the season. The Fifths unfortunately had to forfeit their match due to a lack of numbers. The Fourths also had a tough fixture, losing their game to Westerfolds Seconds team. In total Camberwell Grammar won 1 fixture, 5 rubbers and 15 games.

Best wishes to the groups touring both overseas and interstate over the holidays. There is a Basketball tour to the USA and a Cricket tour to New Zealand during December, while a Swimming tour is headed to the Gold Coast in January.
