Term 2, Week 4


Friday 23 May, 2014

Br Michael’s Corner Dear Mr Mifsud, We want to say a big THANK YOU for our ins ects and toys. From the little gents at the Junior Campus.

Who is the greatest? “At this time the disciples came to Jesus and said, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” (Matthew 18: 1 - 4) Jesus’ answer was to call a little child and to put the child in front of them. “He said, ‘I tell you solemnly, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” Jesus exhorts us to become, not childish, but like little children, to learn from their trust and openness of mind, their spontaneity and delight. Children are full of life, enjoy simple things often repeated endlessly, have good self-esteem, make friends easily and quickly forgive. and forget. Sure they can be naughty at times! By ignoring the adult values of status, wealth and achievement and focusing on the vulnerability of children, we can re-learn the values of a full commitment to the opportunities of life. We should treasure the presence of children in our lives so that we may see what they see, hear what they hear and in the wisdom of age to grow to a greater appreciation of the gifts of life.. Br. Michael Flaherty

129 Carrington St Adelaide, SA 5000 9 Walters Street Tea Tree Gully SA 5091 08 8264 2311 From time to time all students feel overwhelmed with the challenges they face in daily life. They may have experienced bullying at school, have family issues that are affecting their feelings or behaviour, or they may be sensitive by nature. The Optimistic Kids Resilience and Well-Being Program can help these children handle their everyday challenges. Our psychologists deliver both individual tailored sessions and the 10-week group program. Children learn to understand the link between thoughts, feelings and actions, and gain experience in dealing with real-life situations. This not only assists in seeing a problem in perspective, but to recognise that they have a choice about how to respond. The program is aimed at 9 to 13 year olds. This is a time when a child’s thinking style is flexible and they can be taught a resilient and optimistic way of dealing with life’s challenges. Over 500 students have participated in the Optimistic Kids program and the outcomes reported include; • More assertive behaviour • Less pessimism • An ability to calm down more quickly when faced with setbacks • A more positive outlook • An attitude of confidence and self-belief developing (and which is further cemented with continued use of the skills taught) Fees are subject to private health rebates or Medicare rebates under the Better Access to Mental Health Care Scheme. We recommend that you contact your private health insurer, or your General Practitioner or Paediatrician regarding Medicare, to determine whether you are entitled to rebates.

A child that knows how to handle failure is a child that’s headed for success.

Junior C Basketball BASKETBALL Open A Basketball Rostrevor College 52 defeated CBC 41 (10 May) Unfortunately another 11 point loss. Having said that, I was pleased to note that the four quarters were more evenly matched in terms of the scores. We have seen improvements in the team’s game and communication even at this early stage of the season and especially heartening as this is a new squad. We congratulate RC on their win and look forward to meeting them again. Daniele started off strongly hitting 5 quick points with a three thrown in. He is good for roughly 8 points a game and this looks promising. Daniele was ably supported by Gleeson with 14 points with four three pointers. Gleeson is averaging 14.5 points a game thus far and this is in addition to his supporting role in all facets of the game. Buck was his usual reliable self under the basket and making good position. I feel that he was under-utilised in this game especially when he continually offered a passing option. Something for the team to work on. Nevertheless Buck contributed 6 points. De Troia is beginning to exert an influence with rebounding and in defence. Put in 4 points under great pressure. A player to watch. Chirara was simply outstanding in the defensive rebounding area in this game. His contribution was soundly acknowledged by the team. To top it off he also contributed to the CBC score line. Manship was impressive as he exerted his influence on the game with drives and making excellent position in addition to assists. He did say to me, “Give me a couple of games to get in the groove” and he has certainly done that. Jaquillard played a great game at both ends of the court and is beginning to become a worry for the opposition. He is an aggressive rebounder who is able to drive through traffic to score. Squire did not play due to injury but nevertheless fronted to support the team on the bench. The team and I certainly appreciated his commitment to the team. Next game is against Trinity College at home. Best Players: William Gleeson, Cooper Jaquillard, Nick De Troia and Tino Chirara. My Gary Jalleh Coach

Junior A Basketball CBC 79 defeated Westminster 28 Our excellent team game continued into Week 2 with CBC running all over Westminster to record another resounding victory. It is fantastic to see the boys playing to the team plan and looking to pass as the first option, sharing the ball and the points. Oliver led the scoring with 19 points and worked well in tandem with Nathan who contributed 18. 12 each to Will and Theo, and Ryan and Nam both troubling the scorers with 6 a piece. This was an enjoyable game to watch with all players contributing to the win both in offence and defence. As mentioned, our team game is the key to our success. It is imperative that we make better use of our voice on the court. This is such an undervalued skill and it will become more important when we encounter a team that will push us on the scoreboard. Keep up the great work, boys. Mr Dan McMahon Coach

CBC 46 defeated Blackfriars 7 Fresh from their win against Pembroke last week, the Junior C Basketball team continued to dominate this week against Blackfriars. CBC were fortunate in winning a few quick fast breaks early on in the match, allowing them to pull away with ease. Despite only coming together as a team weeks ago, the boys worked well as a team, passing the ball around to each other, ensuring that the success was shared among them. Well done to Liam Hopper, Alex Carol and Alex Foord for their achieving top scores. Ms Toni Riccio Coach

football First XVIII Football Westminster 18.9 (117) defeated CBC 13.8 (86) (10 May) Best Players: M Gabrielli, A Martino, S Danielle, J Strange, T Daly A game in two halves where we completely outplayed them in the first half only to turn the ball over at critical times. We led by 3 goals early and had every chance to lead by 4 or 5 goals by quarter time. At three quarter time we were down by 4 points but were overrun in the last quarter due to a reduced bench and lack of rotation. With a very young side we are developing quite well; however, we must stay in the game for four quarters. In the first game we were outplayed in the third quarter and on Saturday parts of the third and the last quarter. This week Trinity at home with afternoon tea required again. Many thanks to the parents who helped last week with afternoon tea. Mr Michael Buttfield Coach

CBC 11.18 (84) defeated Trinity College 11.8 (74) (17 May) Best Players: Rutai, A. McPherson, W. Mcpherson, Gabrielli, Strange Goal Scorers: Biancardi 5 CBC defeated Trinity to record their first win of the season in an enthralling contest at home on Saturday. After a superb opening 15 minutes to the game with the midfield well on top led by a dominant Jonty Rutai in ruck the boys let Trinity back into the game through some wasteful shots at goal. Our pressure and work rate dropped off during the third quarter and Trinity looked like they would run away with game, leading by 15 points going into the last. Our midfield again lifted, with Strange, Owens and Bielby finding plenty of the ball and getting it in long to Biancardi who was looking ominous at full forward. Our defenders showed true grit and absorbed the pressure put on them despite injuries to Colangelo, Sangermano and a courageous Gabrielli, propelling the ball forward where our forwards were able to contest and lock the ball in until the final siren. A fantastic result for the playing group who are continuing to improve. This week against Mercedes will offer another challenge. Mr Jace Bode Coach

Second XVIII Football CBC 23.19 157 defeated Trinity College 3.3 21 Best Players: Tyson Sarunic, Carmine Alvaro, Chris Skelton, Luke Yates, Dejan Hancar, Dane Richardson, Jonah Byrnes, Matthew Nardechia, Troy Nicholson, Christian Pancione Goal Scorers: Luke Yates 6, Dejan Hancar 5, Dane Richardson 3, Jonah Byrnes 2, Jovan Bojovic 2, Marcus Tully 1, Brayden Canavan 1, Leo Mugisha 1, Troy Nicholson 1, Carmine Alvaro 1



A wonderful afternoon at the football as the Purple Haze defeated a talented Trinity line up by a comprehensive 136 points. The final result suggests a blow-out but the game was an arm wrestle all day with a talented forward line the difference. Tyson Sarunic worked tirelessly in the ruck. Carmine Alvaro was a sensational late inclusion and provided pace and skill to an already talent packed forward six. Dejan Hancar nailed 5 goals off the flank whilst Luke Yates kicked six to join the talented Jovan Bojovic at the top of the season’s goalkicking to date. Loved the leadership of our brave skipper, Chris Skelton. His smothering and tackling was inspirational. Jonah Byrnes showed his class with another twenty plus performance and a couple of neat rover’s goals. It’s the “one percenters” that I really admire. Christian Pancione, Joshua Dwyer, Leo Mugisha and Brayden Canavan showed that the game can be influenced by telling touches at the right time. It’s all about an attitude of best effort and contribution. Thank you to the large number of parents and friends that joined us for the game. Your support is greatly appreciated and makes the day a special one for the lads. We are chasing the record of the undefeated CBC team of 1944 so every cheer helps. This week we are playing the highly rated Mercedes at the Marion Oval on Sturt Rd at 12.15. This is going to be the toughest of tests yet with Sacred Heart on the 31st looming as another blockbuster. Pretty sure the lads are up for the challenge. Mr Stephen Clohesy Coach

Year 10 Football Pembroke 21.14 (140) defeated CBC 3.0 (18) Best Players: Cotsios, Squire, Gregorace, O’Neill, Galanti, Nihill, Porcelli Goal Scorers: Severino, Moore, Bennett The year 10 team welcomed in several players this week and looked forward to the clash with Pembroke. The inclusion of Michael Costios, Daniel Aplin, Luke Squire, Josh Gregorace, Liam Galanti, Lachlan Jarvis and Luke Teakle gave the team confidence in a good performance. As the game commenced at the former Olympic Sportsfield at Kensington Park we notice that our opponents were significantly bigger than us and also had half a team to spare on the bench. Our bench had so much space on it that parents and picnic goers sat down and joined the coach for a day at the park. Team confidence soon suffered a little deflation as Pembroke quickly set about demonstrating the art of long kicking, strong marking and hard ball winning. Despite the best efforts of Haydn Nihill, Brock Curyer, Dan Aplin and defenders Stuart O’Neill and Tom Harris, we were unable to apply enough pressure to slow the Kings down. A fine effort by several forward players saw Michael Severino skilfully snap a goal to start our scoring account. By quarter time we were already down 40 points and in for a tough day. The second quarter saw a continuation of Pembroke’s dominance. Michael Cotsios and Luke Squire were matching their midfielders and trying to set up play; however, the opposition continued to block our every move. Calum Moore scored an excellent goal on the run after a clever passage of play and Josh O’Callaghan was teaming up with Luke Teakle to give the team something to aim at. Brock Curyer worked hard around the ground and competed well in ruck. Dom Porcelli dropped down to defence to try and match their tall forwards who were too strong in the air for our boys. Liam Galanti set up several promising forward attacking moves from his wing and was an excellent link between defence and attack. By half time we were down by 84 points and looking to salvage what we could from the situation. In the second half we stopped the haemorrhaging and matched Pembroke on more occasions. Josh Gregorace read the play beautifully and gave us drive from defence. Luke Teakle and Brock Curyer worked hard up the field to provide the team options while Haydn Nihill showed great leadership in applying tackles and doing his best to slow the opposition. Dan Aplin worked down to defence to try

and give his team some more drive and Cotsios and Squire continued to match and beat their opponents. O’Neill and Harris repelled many an attack and were assisted by Jarvis. Harry Isherwood on a wing and Ambrose Ronson at half back applied pressure on the opposition and to keep Pembroke to 6 goals for the quarter was a good effort. Special mentions have to go to Josh O’Callaghan and Brock Curyer who both stepped up to the ruck and matched their taller opponents on a number of occasions. This allowed Dominic Porcelli to play in defence where he had a big influence in the second half. Zane Bennett played in a forward pocket despite a knee injury from training and kicked a neat goal in the last quarter. Also appreciated Steven Tsoukatos who came out to support his team and take statistics whilst resting his injured ankle. Next week we have Blackfriars at CBC and look forward to the return of Bakhos Rahme, Riley Poole, Steven Tsoukatos and possibly others. Mr Greg Ward Coach

Year 8 Football Pembroke 8.5 (53) defeated CBC 5.11 (41) Goal Scorers: M Frederick 2, H DiMarco, A Lovell, A Mastrangelo Best Players: M Costanzo, G Rigano, M Frederick, A Mastrangelo, H Clarke, B Dickeson, T Daniell, L D’Antonio In what was a good game of football between two evenly matched teams, CBC battled away valiantly only to let the game slip away in the last quarter. For three and a half quarters, CBC really took it up to the opposition, yet could not sustain the effort and lost by 12 points. In the first quarter, it was a pretty even contest, both teams had their fair share of the ball, but Pembroke were a little better in their forward line and held a 9 point lead at the break. Our second quarter was solid; first to the contest; tackling with aggression; shepherding; smothering and desperate play to keep the ball in our forward line. We had more shots on goal, yet lost the quarter by 4 points. In the third quarter, the game was in the balance, CBC were committed and winning crucial contested possessions; we were playing on at all costs and were dominating inside our forward 50. We had 7 shots on goal to the opposition’s 1 shot, yet we kicked 2-5 and only held a 4 point lead at the break. This was clearly our best quarter for the season, but unfortunately wayward kicking kept Pembroke in the game. It was all set up for a tight and enthralling final quarter... whichever team wanted the ball more, would win the game. We started the quarter well and had a couple of scoring opportunities that we did not capitalise on and then ...we just stopped. We went into our shells, dropped easy marks; were second to the ball; our forwards were playing behind their opponents and disappointingly, the commitment of a several CBC players when the game was in the balance was very disappointing. Our effort at the contest was at times half-hearted, allowing the opposition to then go on a scoring spree and kick 4 straight goals. From being 4 points up at the start of the quarter, we were now 12 points down and the game was lost. Marcus Costanzo was solid as a rock in defence, playing on Pembroke’s best player. After struggling early he got on top and won numerous possessions; even rucking in the third quarter. He completely shut his opponent out and played a great game. Gianni Rigano worked tirelessly in ruck; he ran all day; tackled strongly and played his best game for the season. Martin Frederick was always in the game, whether stopping the ball in defence or having shots on goal, his balance and ball control was fantastic. Anthony Mastrangelo was superb in the forward line; tackling ferociously and always putting pressure on the opposition causing many turnovers and scoring opportunities for CBC. Hayden Clarke was the ‘general’ in defence. His reading of the play and setting up our structures in defence was quality leadership. Brodie Dickeson ran all day in the pivot. He never stopped trying and got numerous possessions in the midfield. Tom Daniell was good on the ball; tackling hard and driving the ball into our forward line. Lewis D’Antonio, playing his first game for the season was like a brick wall in defence. On

numerous occasions he backed himself and charged at the ball, stopping many opposition attacks on goal. I was also pleased with: Austin Lovell’s competitiveness at full forward; Kesh Brown attacking the ball hard in his first game; and Bailey Salvemini’s willingness to run and support his teammates and outnumber the opposition at stoppages. This was our best game for the season and considering we had 3 key players out injured, we almost pulled off a remarkable victory. It was just in the dying minutes of the game, we sat back and hoped someone else would do the hard work. We still have too many players dropping in and out of the game, without exerting much influence. It is not good enough to do one or two good things and then not do anything for the rest of the game. We need more players playing better, for longer periods. To compete against the better teams, we must have more contributors; players willing to keep their eyes on the ball and attack it flat out; run and kick the ball into the spaces; take risks. We have proven we can compete with the stronger teams for two or three quarters. Our challenge for the rest of this term is to work hard for 4 quarters and the results will come our way. Mr Peter Tippins Coach

Year 6/7 Football Pembroke 11.11 (77) defeated CBC 2.2 (14) Goal Scorers: Okok Machar, Corey Sauerwald Best Players: Jack Bourke, Akok Machar, Kaine Baldwin, Joe Ferrina, Jackson Heinrich, Liam Ryan Pembroke were a very strong opponent and the score line accurately reflects the differences between the teams. This difference was mainly due to two opponents that were quite dominant the whole game. There were a number of very pleasing aspects about the way CBC competed during the game and in particular as the game progressed. Two improvements are noteworthy: (1) at quarter time the players were instructed to hold on to their tackles and this definitely improved, and (2) at half time the players were instructed to reduce the number of uncontested marks Pembroke were taking with ease and this improved significantly. Several individual efforts are worth particular praise. Jack Bourke was very competitive all day and his tackling was superb. Akok rucked from quarter-time until the end of the game and provided plenty of run, endeavour and drive. Joe Ferrina got his boot to the ball in the midfield on many occasions. Liam Ryan’s competitiveness and continual effort in putting his head over the ball was inspirational. Campbell Hillock’s last quarter was excellent. He was challenged to cover Kaine Baldwin (who was superb at full-back for the 1st three quarters before having his term on the interchange) and did an excellent job. Provided CBC continues to play with spirit we should be competitive against all sides this year. Mr Matthew Crisanti Coach

Year 4/5 Purple Football Parkside/St Raphael’s/Rose Park 10.2 (62) defeated CBC 6.3 (39) Our first half on the weekend was the best half of footy we have played by far. We won our fair share of ball out of the middle, moved it on quickly and took the game on. There was some excellent ball movement and teamwork and exciting footy for the crowd to watch. Our forwards positioned themselves and got on the end of some good passages of play, resulting in six goals being kicked in the half. Unfortunately we weren’t able to go on with it in the second half. For some reason we slowed down when we had the ball. We stopped moving the ball quickly and taking the game on. We also struggled to man up on our opponents defensively, resulting in some easy goals to the opposition.

Overall it was an improved performance from last week, which is what we want to see more of. Our first half was outstanding and we hope to build on that in the coming weeks. Best Players: J Walker E Cross L Vonthoff L Wright T Kay H O’Mahoney Goal Scorers: L Wright 3 D Heinrich 1 J Walker 1 L Vonthoff 1 Mr Vincent Rignanese Coach

Soccer Open B1 Soccer CBC 4 defeated Cabra College 0 Goal Scorers: Lucas Pizzino 2, Mohammed Noori 1, Christian Pancione 1 Best Players: Henry Hunt, Andre Silvi, Lucas Pizzino, Christian Pancione With the Year 12 Retreat fresh in our minds, and some apprehension about the number of players available, 15 Open B1 players arrived at Cabra College just in time to start the game. The game was played in very good spirit, with both teams dominating play during the first half. Mojtaba Ahmadi was immediately on the scene, preventing some early chances. Lucas Pizzino broke open the defence with a brilliant free kick from mid field that sailed the goal keeper for CBC’s first goal. The play then swung in CBC’s favour. Henry Hunt was impenetrable stopping many attacks on and certain goals. Andre Silve provided excellent direction from the back line and our mid field set up many opportunities down both sides. Gaols to Lucas, Mohammed and Christian in the second half put the result beyond doubt. First gamer, Agayi Bahombwa showed great skill and flair as right back. The Open B1s played well as a team this week, something that has been missing in previous weeks. The Captains were strong and confident and the team responded to their directions. Thank you to the parents who came to cheer the boys on and assisted by running the lines. Games will usually be at 8:15am. Thus players are expected at the field at 7:45am for warm up and set up if it is a home game. Each week one of the players who start off will be expected to run one of the lines. This will rotate at half time and everyone will be expected to participate. As this is an open team, the players have been asked to wear white socks and have a white soccer shirt as our usual uniform. All players have been given a draw and Mr Lucas’ contact details. Mr Michael Lucas Coach

Year 10A Soccer CBC 2 defeated Norwood Morialta HS 1 The match started strongly for both sides with plenty of attempts on goal at each end. CBC took the opportunities presented, to their advantage, scoring two goals to Norwood’s nil by the end of the first half; which included a controversial offside call that was disallowed. Norwood fought back strongly in the second half, but with William Clemente in goals they found it hard to score. William made a series of good saves and our defence stood up very well, only conceding 1 goal in the final term. Rafal Stawicki was strong in the midfield, in both attack and defence, whilst Dylan D’Agostino bagged 2 goals in impressive style. This was a wonderful win for our team as Norwood is one of the strongest sides in the competition. Best Players: Dylan D’Agostino (forward), Alex Hartley (defence), Rafal Stawicki (midfield), William Clemente (goal keeper) George Theodoulou Captain

Open B2 Table Tennis table tennis

Norwood Morialta HS 4 defeated CBC 0 We started off with 10 players, which resulted in us expending a great deal of energy in the first half, keeping Norwood to a nil-all scoreline. As valiant as our efforts were, 15 mins into the second half we were very tired and struggled to keep up with our respective opponents. A number of opportunities presented themselves to score, but to no avail and Norwood Morialta dominated possession. Having 5 players rotating off the bench, the whole game, Norwood showed no mercy and we conceded 4 goals over the course of the second half. The whole team played to the best of their ability, which I suppose is something positive we can take away from this disappointing result. Best Players: Aidon Michalowski, Anthony Ruggiero, Jesvin Jose and Jacob Ellis Mr Hilary Flynn Team Manager

Year 5A Soccer CBC defeated St Ignatius Our boys played very well considering the full-sized pitch and 11 vs 11 team play out. The first half was a little bit unstructured, but we seemed to find our own during the second half to come away with a 4-2 win on our home ground. There were some good one-two passes and the goal scored by Rees set up by Vasili was the play of the match. Best Player: Jayden Taylor Mr Paul Zitis Coach

CBC defeated St Michaels

Open B1 Table Tennis CBC defeated St Peter’s College Well, it may have been the Year 12 Retreat over the previous two days that inspired such playing. Or it may have been the mad dash to venues and getting there on time. Whatever it was, CBC won dramatically. I wheeled the bus out of Ifould Street and headed again into the green William Blake fields of St Peter’s, two teams and two coaches and a poor memory. The juniors simply got on with it and played; 40 minutes later we were back on Hackney Road heading for home. Returning to Hackney High I realised that I had left one of the home team players behind. The theory was for him to hitch a ride with me and catch up with his older brother. O dear! I re-navigated the leafy green and braved the traffic and back at CBC the Year 9 was nowhere to be seen! I returned to Hackney High for a third time thinking I may have to start paying their school fees and rehearsed what I was going to say to the brother, the mother and anyone who’d listen. The upshot. The lad had left early and caught the train home and arrived safely. The older brother and mother didn’t hold me responsible. And a chocolate bar later, a gift of reconciliation, restorative justice and the humblest of apologies put the world as I know it back on its axis. Maybe it was age, the weather, or the realities of the Federal Budget. We contemplated forgiveness and mercy as we wheeled our bicycles down Frome Road into the fading light. Mr Rory Harris Coach/Bus driver

Keep saving to win a family underwater adventure holiday.

The team this week consisted of Sid Rajagopal, Thanh La, Nghia Nguyen, Andrew Hockley, Vincent Nguyen, Leon Kasperski, Robert Than and Ajai Watson. Another week and another victory for the Open B2 team. There were some excellent matches, with some fine rallies. Two of the key matches were the reverse doubles fought by Nghia and Andrew with scores of 9-11, 11-7, 11-13 and the single played by Leon with scores of 11-4, 4-11 and 11-7. Overall, it was an enjoyable evening with a well-deserved victory for our boys. Ms Preeti Patil Coach

Middle B2 Table Tennis St Peter’s College defeated CBC Best Players: Harrison Taylor, Kieran Lennon, Matthew Kurzyniec Well done to all team members for being changed and ready to leave promptly on the bus.

Morris Colby and Bede Larcombe joined the group for the first time and both made a creditable effort, winning lots of points, although they did not win their games.
