Principal

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all Cromwell stakeholders for what has been a very successful year. Our students are the lifeblood of their College and its reason for being. Academically this year, our 247 students achieved an overall GPA of 5.17 which is a truly excellent result across the whole College. The ICC sporting and cultural competitions were approached with the usual “Crommie Ticker”, spiritual enquiry engaged a growing number, and a wide variety of well planned social activities provided the glue to further bond everyone together. There indeed continues to be a very strong and positive spirit here at Cromwell which runs far deeper than any materialistic aspects or quantifiable data. The Student Leadership Team provided mature guidance and support to our students. I sincerely thank Student President (James Duffy) and his Executive for their leadership and management of the student activities, and the Resident Assistants’ (RA) group for their dedication, commitment, and extensive time and effort in the corridors with the students. Last year I created the new role of Under 18’s Coordinator. Its aim was to support the growing number of students both under and over 18 for whom drinking was not a priority, and to develop more ‘dry’ activities for the whole College to further promote inclusion. Candice Jones has done a terrific job this year working with the social conveners and RA’s to advance this role. Linked to this, the College has a very strong relationship with Red Frogs, who support many of our social activities. My wife Jenny and I were very fortunate to be able to work for a night alongside Red Frog (and former Cromwell student) Matthew Goulter at Schoolies’ Week at Surfers From the Principal Paradise last month.

What’s INSIDE

Our small staff team continued to offer outstanding support to our students. Dean of Students (Nathan Croft) and Student Advisor (Geoffrey White) together provided care for our students around the clock, ably supported by the maintenance, catering and housekeeping staff led by Fred Deckers, Noelene Brooks and Chris Raymond respectively. The office team provided further support for all, and I sincerely thank Barbara Pegg, Sarah Brewer, Donna Howett and Robyn Slater in this regard. Throughout this year several

of contemporary legal and social landscapes to improve student outcomes across all colleges. I have represented this group on the Inter College Council Board of Governors, and on the Inter Colleges’ Sports Committee (ICSC). This year Cromwell hosted the University’s Senior Management Team and College Heads for a special Gala Dinner at the College, in addition to several senior academics speaking to our students at Formal Dinners throughout the year. Strategically the College is moving towards a new phase as broader technological teaching and learning is embraced by the University. The future increased delivery of lecture material online with on campus attendance to value add, provides challenges for Colleges as they strive to position themselves as meeting the academic needs of students of the future who, through changed teaching and learning methods, may have more unstructured time. Cromwell recognizes strategically that having the correct human and capital resources to meet these challenges will be essential. The Board of Governors will be deliberating further over these matters in their Strategic Planning Retreat in March 2014.

Dining Room Deck - Progress 8 January 2014

The College embarked on a new capital project this year in the form of an impressive deck adjoining the Dining Room. An extensive process of consultation preceded final drawings and specifications and as I write, construction work continues on time and on budget in anticipation of completion in mid February 2014. Cromwell is positioned well to meet the complex changing needs of contemporary emerging adults. Constantly striving to exceed expectations around the ongoing challenges in both the physical and mental health of young people when applied to their academic and pastoral life is not an exact science, but it is what drives all of us here committed to making a positive difference. With the unique spirit that is Cromwell, anything is possible. I hope and pray that you had a wonderful Christmas, and that 2014 will be another exceptional year for Cromwell and for all associated with it. Kind regards,

From the Student President What a year it has been to be a member of Cromwell College. The year has gone incredibly fast and I honestly can say I don’t know where the 35 weeks have gone. It seems like yesterday we were greeting a very cheerful bunch of new faces into the College and re-acquainting ourselves with much missed friends. People often ask what we do at College. To them I say, the year in a life of a Cromwellian is an amazing one, filled with fun, frivolity and success. The year was a great success in all areas of College life. As always Cromwell students showed what is it to be a Cromwellian with their huge amounts of Crommie Ticker displayed throughout the year. Cromwell being one of the smallest Colleges always had the most supporters at all events. Encouraging their peers and always supporting them no matter what the outcome of the game. Even if Cromwell didn’t win, it always felt like a win coming off the field. To finish off the year in sports, Georgia Hart and Matthew Wood held the annual Sports Dinner, which was a fantastic evening with awards showing the depth and sporting talent at Cromwell. This year our guest speaker was Wallabies great, Nathan Sharpe, giving us a very motivational speech that taught us “the people who succeed are often those who train harder when no one is watching”. Cromwell finished 5th overall while the boys just missed out on winning the weighted shield for a 4th year by 0.04 points. The start of mid semester break saw Cromwell having one of the most prestigious nights of the year, Cromwell Ball. Hosted by Nick Davis and Jack Green. Ball was held at Cloudland, which provided the perfect backdrop for what was a night not to be forgotten. To say my peers scrubbed up well would not do them justice, they all turned out eye catching in a beautiful array of dresses and well cut suits. It was an amazing night that holds memories, many will cherish for years. Another highlight of the year was the fantastic Cultural Dinner organised by Alix Lee. This night gave us the opportunity to thank those involved across all disciplines. This year was a fantastic year for Cromwell, finishing 4th overall in Debating which is unheard of in years, and coming so close to winning Dancefest finishing a close second. The night was topped off with our guest speaker, comedian Jacques Barrett who’s outrages themes and antics left Cromwell in hysterics. Perhaps the biggest highlight of the year was Valedictory Dinner. It was a sad, but fitting goodbye to the College and departing students. The night was filled with laughter and tears from the speeches to the College, the Staff and the Student Leadership Team that left us reminiscing those times we will never forget. The Student Executive presented their three annual awards; Fresher of the Year to Jeremy Somerville, The Executive Award went to Kelsey Brumpton for her dedication to Cromwell and upholding all values, and The Presidents Award to Caitlin McPhee. The night concluded with all Valedictorians attending Third Year Cocktails to kick their feet up together for one last time. However, this also means that the year is over and that we must sadly leave the halls The Executive Award - Kelsey Brumpton

of Cromwell College. I would personally like to thank my Executive one last time for the fantastic year we have had and for all your hard work. It has been more than a privilege to be given the opportunity to serve as the President of such a quality bunch of young people and the experiences that I will hold close to my heart forever. In my three years I have made more memories and close friends then I could ever have imagined. I would like to thank all of the staff who work so hard to make these halls a home, especially Ross and Nathan for putting up with me in the countless meetings throughout the year. I would also like to thank Mum and Dad for giving me the opportunity to make the memories that I have made at Cromwell. Most of all however, I want to thank the students. Not anywhere have I ever witnessed such a tight knit bunch of people and I genuinely doubt that I ever will again. It has been a privilege to make the friends and family I have made over my three years and I hope not to neglect any of you as we go our separate ways. I wish each of you the very best and I sincerely hope that Cromwell’s future is as bright as its past. James “Phlover” Duffy President Cromwell College Students’ Association

Academic Dinner This year’s Academic Dinner was held on Tuesday 20 August. The guest speaker was Professor Joanne Wright, Deputy Vice Chancellor Academic at the University of Queensland.

Mr Geoffrey White (Student Advisor) Travels To The Middle East Geoffrey will again be headed to the Middle East until mid-February, 2014 in relation to his studies. He will visit Morocco, Egypt, Gaza, Israel and Jordan where he will volunteer at refugee camps. Below is an article that Geoffrey wrote regarding his trip last year. Last year I was lucky enough to receive a scholarship with a language institute in Amman, Jordan. The scholarship was supposed to involve intensive Arabic language study, a volunteering program working with orphans and refugees, and a research project working with Syrian and Palestinian refugees. I then arranged a language, interning, and volunteering program in Morocco, for which I was later also granted a scholarship. UQ added support with a grant, and I am also grateful to my employers, at the School of History Philosophy Religion and Classics (University of Queensland) and at Cromwell College, who were so very generous and flexible in arranging the time away from work that made this trip possible.

COCA News 2013 • Page 12


I arrived in Jordan in November and commenced intensive language studies as per the scholarship. Unfortunately, the institute had encountered difficulties due to the political upheaval in Jordan at the time and had been unable to organise the volunteering or research aspects of the scholarship, so I independently organised a volunteering role with Jordan Volunteers, an amazing group of young Jordanians with whom I volunteered with orphans, children with disabilities, elders, refugees and the impoverished. I also began visiting the UN refugee compound in Amman, helping in whatever way I could and conducting research independently. There I met someone from the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organisation (JHCO). I told him about my non-eventuating research project, and subsequently the JHCO asked me to interview refugees in Syrian and Palestinian camps about their experiences and needs. I combined this with research to inform my own work in Studies in Religion, looking at Islam and issues of peace, conflict, violence and nonviolence, as well as people’s relationships with religion, God, and faith in times of intense crisis. My time in the Zataari Syrian refugee camp in Jordan was challenging and deeply emotional, but extraordinary and rewarding. I thought I was well prepared for what I knew would be an intense experience, but what I saw, heard and experienced there really shook me. My experiences in Palestinian refugee camps were very different to the Syrian camp yet still eye opening and moving.

COCA News 2013 • Page 13


I arranged to go next to Gaza to volunteer with the Palestinian Children’s Relief Fund. However, as this was not long into the ceasefire, it was even more difficult to get into Gaza than usual, and my attempt to enter was unsuccessful. So I travelled instead to the West Bank (Palestine) where I volunteered for 3 weeks with a community center in a Palestinian refugee camp and also continued the above-mentioned research. I then travelled back to Amman to help gather and organise clothes and blankets for the Syrian camps, as a disastrous cold snap had hit Jordan. Then to Egypt, where for a month or so I studied Arabic and volunteered; in the African Hope school for refugees, where I ran teacher training workshops and tutored high-needs students, and at the Mother Theresa Children’s Centre in Zabaleen, where I cared for orphans and other children in need. Both volunteering roles were incredible and humbling experiences, especially the Children’s Centre, where the 1-3 year olds I cared for stole my heart were heartbreaking to leave. It was an extraordinary time to be in Egypt. My room in downtown Cairo was well (or badly, depending on how you look at it!) placed to see and experience the political and social tension, violence and upheaval taking place. There was much that was challenging and often disturbing about what was/is happening in Cairo but it was an extraordinary experience to be there. In each of the places I spent time in, my ideas, such as they were, about the socio-political situations, perceived ‘causes’, and hoped-for solutions were fundamentally challenged. I was struck by the extraordinary complexity of

COCA News 2013 • Page 14


the situations underlying the pain and suffering, and was well advised by a wise colleague more experienced than I that I should put aside my probably naïve ambitions to help ‘fix’ the situations and instead throw myself into doing whatever little I immediately could to simply and practically help anyone suffering as a result of the situations. Being in Jordan, Egypt, Israel and Palestine also gave me an incredible opportunity, as a religious studies teacher and student, to visit some of the great Abrahamic religious sites. So I used the rare occasions when I wasn’t busy with Arabic study and community work to do student ‘pilgrimages’ to such incredible places as Mount Nebo, the (supposed) site of the Baptism of Jesus at the river Jordan, Machaerus, the myriad sacred/religio-historical sites within the walls of Jerusalem, Bethlehem for Catholic/Protestant and Orthodox Christmases, Jericho, the Garden of Gethsemene, Nazareth, Cana, Lake Galilee, Capernaeum, Mt. of Beatitudes, Coptic and Islamic Cairo, etc. etc. As a Studies in Religion nerd, it was a dream come true! And of course I also took the time to visit some of the amazing must-see ‘wonders’ such as Petra and the Pyramids of Giza, which were breathtaking. Geoffrey White Student Advisor (Academic/Pastoral)
