Principal

To the Cromwell Community Cromwell College has experienced yet another most successful year. Academically our students excelled. With the cumulative grade point average for the year being 5.06 and hundreds of ‘7’ grades awarded over the year, there is much to celebrate as we continually strive to have Cromwell renown as a College of high academic excellence. In the ICC / social sporting and cultural competitions, Cromwell has once again punched above its weight as the smallest co-educational College on campus. Individual, team and group performances alongside large spectator / audience contingents have been most impressive. Spiritually there has been an increasing number of students actively involved in discussion groups, many linking to local churches. Socially there has been the usual variety of diverse and incredibly popular activities and events. The Student Leadership Team comprising the Executive, RA’s and Senior Tutor, have risen to the many challenges of their roles, working alongside the dedicated staff team. The jewel in the Cromwell crown remains the esprit de corps and the true sense of community and mateship that has been a trademark of this College since the first students arrived on 6 June 1954. Cromwell is aware that it operates in an ever increasing competitive market place. Although we have a unique niche market here and a highly sought after product, with a growing number of external accommodation providers around the St Lucia area, we should never become complacent that hundreds of aspiring Cromwellians will automatically continue to just drift into our agenda each year. It is important for Cromwell to continue to preserve the best of its past, but to move ahead and meet contemporary challenges. We must ensure that our rhetoric matches our reality. Cromwell along with all colleges globally faces significant challenges. Collaboratively with many stakeholders, Cromwell has proactively challenged some of its traditions alongside the contemporary legal, moral and social frameworks in which Colleges now operate. Successful modernization is evidenced by Cromwell maintaining a very strong and widely

Cromwell College Song

popular social program, but being seen by many more aspiring students now as an academic college. We are proud at Cromwell that for several years now, Orientation Week, at the decree of successive student leadership teams, supported by staff, has been totally alcohol free for all students (new and leaders) so that genuine, meaningful relationships and bonds can be formed. From 2013, the Cromwell Student Leadership Team includes an ‘Under Age Representative’ to coordinate activities and provide active support to our youngest students. Cromwell above all else has always and will always be first and foremost a home away from home. Transitioning hundreds of diverse and effervescent teenagers from home and school, to co-educational residential College living and tertiary studies, is far from being an exact science. Proactive pastoral care and the associated opening and maintaining of effective communication channels at all levels within the College, linked with unwavering effort from each student, lays the path towards holistic success. Cromwell has done this admirably throughout its distinguished past and remains well placed to continue exceeding people’s expectations in these contemporary times. Cromwell College: Opportunities Now – Benefits for Life.

From the Student President With the second semester winding up, the College is preparing to go into study mode for final exams. However in the weeks leading up to SWOTVAC, Cromwell has been as busy as ever. We went into mid semester off the back of our Ball, which was planned by our social convenors Michael Henalla and Ben Durance. It was held at Victoria Park Golf Course, and it was a stunning venue with views over the city. Ball was a great chance for our students to dress up and celebrate the year so far. After mid semester the social focus turned to our special dinners; Cultural, Sport and Valedictory. Lmn]^gm>q^\nmbo^Zm<khfp^ee;Zee L ] > b < ee ; ee

Both our Cultural Convenor, Steph Pattinson and our Vice President, Tom Mitchell worked hard on our Cultural dinner. This year for the first time it was made a charity event, with awards for our Cultural stars and a performance by up and coming comedian Tommy Little. Students were asked to make a gold coin donation upon entry and a raffle was organised with prizes donated by Esquire hairdressing. We made just under $600, which went to The Australian Lung Foundation, a cause very close to our hearts. The next Monday Cultural events finished for the year with Cromwell finishing a solid 6th in Dancefest. The next week was Sports Dinner. Organised by our Convenors, Mark McCutchan and Lisa Palmer it was a fantastic evening, with awards showing the depth of sporting talent at Cromwell. Sam Thaiday was our guest speaker, and was more than happy to pose for photos with Queensland and New South Wales supporters alike. The event culminated with the presentation of the corridor cup, to Lockley/House. The next night was the ICC Sport Presentation. Both Cromwellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s males and females placed 5th overall, and for the third year in a row our boys

won the Weighted Shield, which is the number of points gained divided by the number of males in the College. We’re very proud of their efforts, spear headed by Mark. The last formal event for the year was the Valedictory dinner. It was a sad but fitting goodbye to the College for our departing third years, with speeches to the College, the staff and the Student Leadership team. The night finished with all Valedictorian’s singing to ‘Save Tonight’ by Eagle Eye Cherry. The Student Executive presented their three annual awards; Fresher of the Year to David McMahon, the Executive award for the person who was the most helpful and dedicated throughout the year to Joshua Walker-Jacobs and the President’s Award which went to Steph Pattinson. Afterwards the third years and their dates attended Third Year Cocktails to kick their feet up together one last time. Even after loving Cromwell from the get go, I came in saying I would only stay one year. Now, almost three years later, I find it hard to even contemplate the idea of leaving. It’s hard to say this without sounding <khfp^eeLihkml=bgg^k cliché, but Cromwell is the most amazing place. You get out what you put in. If you give to Cromwell, it will give back, unconditionally. You are surrounded by the most amazing people, people who have made you laugh and cry, and who have been there for you through any hardships you may have suffered. The friendships I have made this year I hope will be lifelong. To those students staying on, I wish you all the best and I urge you to make the most of the rest of your time here. Outside these walls lies the real world, a place where you can’t walk to Uni in your pyjamas, a hot breakfast isn’t waiting for you and your room won’t be cleaned once a week. College is a truly unique experience, and we are so, so lucky to be a part of it. Thank you for the memories Cromwell, we will all miss you.

Candlelight Vi l On 28 August students held a candlelight vigil at 6 pm on North Lawn in memory of Harrison Canton (brother of Hayley) who passed away in France. The timing was to coincide with Harrison’s cremation (10 am in France). Although tragic circumstances, the spirit of Cromwell is evident in the good times and importantly also in times of adversity. Once again, our thoughts and prayers are with the Canton family.

Chit Chat Round Up Ben Kenway (1994-1997) & Kerylea Kenway (nee L ter 1995-1997) To celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary last year, we sponsored a college photo (1996 of course, the year we started dating). My gift to Ben, though not sure he was that excited by my romantic gesture! Then, Donna was keen for COCA articles. So after 16 years, 2 children and finally 1 eternity ring…...... We both graduated in 1998 – Ben a biology/science teacher and myself a speech pathologist. I worked for a year in Grafton NSW and Ben began teaching in Ipswich. After a year we moved back to Brisbane. Ben continued teaching in Ipswich and I worked in the disability sector and private practice. We married in September 2001 in Montville. In 2003 Ben was transferred to Proserpine and I ;^gZg]D^kre^ZD^gpZrpbma\abe]k^g>pZgZg]E^Za' worked for Education Queensland. We made the most of life in the beautiful Whitsundays for 3 years, holidaying on and visiting all the islands! It was particularly tough having to service schools on Hamilton and Hayman Islands for work! We also took the opportunity to travel and explore North Queensland. After many long car trips south to visit family, we chose to be closer to everyone and to enjoy the beach without worrying about ‘deadly jellyfish’. So we transferred to Bundaberg and bought our first home. Our son Ewan was born in October 2008 and our daughter Leah arrived 3 years later. Ewan idolises his Daddy and is very much Daddy’s ‘mini-me’. Star Wars must be in the genes! Leah is nearly 1 years old and our social princess. So life is currently crazy busy and our two cherubs keep us thoroughly entertained.

Obuary – Frerick Vior Rtano (1960-1961) Born 26 May 1919 Sydney, Died 16 Oober 2012 Brisbane. Frederick Victor Reitano spent his formative years in Sydney where he displayed early promise as a scholar. His annual examination certificates of 1932-34 from North Newtown Intermediate High School indicated 1st in French; 2nd in Latin; 1st in Geography - 3 years in a row. He got 4As and 4Bs for his NSW Intermediate Certificate in 1935. Mr Reitano performed well in the 1936 NSW Public Service Examination, coming within the first 50 places, but opted instead to join the Australian Gaslight Company where he stayed until the outbreak of the Second World War. He enlisted as a private in the Australian military forces and saw active service in Papua New Guinea where he experienced first-hand the bombing of Port Moresby by the Japanese. He rose to the rank of sergeant, and was later commissioned in 1943. He attended officers training at Duntroon. Upon his graduation Mr Reitano was posted to a civil affairs unit in Borneo as a 2nd Lieutenant. The war in the Pacific was coming to end and the Australian Government needed officers of his calibre to assist in the reconstruction of the Asia/Pacific region. During his time at Borneo he met Mary Alice Kathleen Fleming who at the time was serving as a nurse in the Voluntary Aid Detachment with the 2/6th Australian General Hospital. They fell in love and got married in January 10th 1946. They then moved to Territory of Papua and New Guinea as it was known then, and spent the next 30 years of their lives there. At the conclusion of the Pacific War in August 15, 1945, he briefly returned to Sydney before deciding to take the opportunity to work with the Australian colonial administration in the Territory of Papua and New Guinea. Mr Reitano enrolled in the 1st Long Course at the Australian School of Pacific Administration (ASOPA) where he was instructed by a talented group of academics such as Marie Reay, Camilla Wedgewood, Harold Stewart, and James McCauley. He was awarded a Diploma in 1951 and then posted to Mt Hagen as a patrol officer. &2&$1HZV‡3DJH 12


Being in the field staff meant regular postings throughout the Territory: Maprik, Mt Hagen, Bogia, Wewak, Manus Island, Rabaul, and finally Port Moresby. One of their first homes was made of thatched material. Such was life in the out stations, especially when one was a patrol officer. While stationed at Manus Island as an Assistant District Officer, he enrolled in a Bachelor of Laws at the University of Queensland. From 1956-1959 he studied for his degree externally. He said that he found this a “trial whilst employed as a field officer”, and applied for and was granted 2 years leave without pay to complete his studies. Mr Reitano boarded at Cromwell College, an experience he enjoyed immensely. He graduated with an LLB in 1961. He continued his association with Cromwell College over the years, and from 1979-1982 Mr Reitano was Graduate Governor at the College. Mr Reitano left the field staff after gaining his law degree, and joined Crown Law in Port Moresby in 1962. After 3 years, he joined a law firm and practiced as a barrister and solicitor, before re-joining Crown Law just before independence. During this time his wife Mary worked as a Welfare Officer. They left Papua New Guinea in 1975. He was then appointed Principal Legal Officer in the Attorney General’s Department in Darwin in 1976, eventually becoming Assistant ?k^]^kb\dOb\mhkK^bmZghZg]K^o'Ebg]lZrEh\de^r!*2/*" Crown Law Officer. Two years later Mr Reitano retired on medical grounds. He and Mary then came to live in Brisbane where they built a home at Sunnybank in Queensland. Upon his retirement in 1978, Mr Reitano set about further study as a part time student at Griffith University where his studied for a Bachelor of Arts, graduating in 1989. He then enrolled in a Master of Arts and completed that in 1992. Apart from studying at university, Mr Reitano became heavily involved in volunteering in a range of organizations that focussed on education, culture, and health. He strongly believed in helping others. He was an active, community minded citizen. One of his great thrills as ‘audio-visual literacy reader’ at the University of Queensland was to assist a sight- impaired law student to graduate with first class honours in law. Mr Reitano was an informed citizen as well. He kept up with current affairs and read widely. He read books by William Shakespeare, Thomas Hardy, Jane Austen, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Morris West, Les Carlyon, David McCullough, Antonia Fraser, and many books on Papua New Guinea… the list goes on… Mr Reitano had a strong sense of social justice and a compassion for women. In January 2010 Mr Reitano and his wife, Mary, moved into RSL Care at Cazna Gardens. He continued in his role of Justice of the Peace until 6 months before he died. Mr Reitano is survived by his wife Mary; sons Paul and Jeffrey; daughters-in-law, Danielle, Janelle and Kate; grandchildren - Emma, Noel, Odette, and Peter; great-grandchildren - Ashley, Michael, Nikolas, Nicola, Daniel, and Gabrielle.

A Vi t From John Johnson (1965-1968)

John Johnson was at Cromwell College from 1965-1968. John is an old boy of Guilford Grammar School Perth and now lives in WA. John lived in Bottom North (Room 8) and also Top North and Top Hancock. John was Cox of the Cromwell Rowing VIII and John recalls Cromwell won the ICC Rugby during his time. John visited the College in August and was taken on a tour by Mr Ross Switzer. John had many recollections of his time at college…… “cigarettes were sold at the Cromwell canteen”, “we used to boil the billy in what is now the Junior Common Room”, incoming phone calls were via one phone in each corridor which had to be answered by the third ring or there was trouble”, “there were no girls at Cromwell at this time, but some were smuggled in though” and “food was not that bad, we got by”. During John’s visit he chose to sponsor the 1968 Cromwell Photo which was his final year at College.
