Dear Parents

Facsimile:

In the early hours of Wednesday morning this week, we welcomed back our intrepid travellers from the European educational tour, led by Father Daly. The boys and the staff were all excited to be home again (naturally), but probably not as excited about the prospect of returning to school! As would be evident to the families of the boys who took part in the trip, the experiences encountered on such a trip are valuable at every level – educational, social, personally and spiritually, and will stay with the boys for a long time. Father Daly’s commendations on the behaviour of the boys at some of the ‘big’ Masses – St Peter’s Basilica in Rome, the Oblate Chapel in Aix-en-Provence, and at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris – were very praiseworthy and the boys were worthy ambassadors of Iona and their families. Let us hope their return to ‘normality’ goes as well!

The first week of term went pretty smoothly (and very quickly), as students quickly settled down to the reality of organising themselves for a crucial period leading up to the end of semester exams. With the reports having gone out to secondary students at the end of last week, parents will soon have the opportunity to talk to their son’s teachers re current performance. Parents will be able to book appointments with staff from 12 noon this Friday for interviews on Tuesday 11 May or Monday 17 May. I trust that in the meantime, the boys have honestly reviewed their first term performances and made appropriate changes to their study regime, if necessary. Last Friday, the College conducted our annual Anzac Day service with guest-of-honour, Mr Peter Kinsella, an Old Boy and current President of the Manly-Lota RSL Sub-Branch. Peter was in great demand on the day, and we are glad he was available to help us celebrate the sacrifices of our original Anzacs and those who have followed in the defence of their country. As always, our students were excellent throughout the service and treated the ceremony with great reverence and respect. The contribution of the musicians and the choir was also outstanding, and, in particular, the trumpet solo of ‘The Last Post’ and ‘Reveille’ by Daniel Byrne were very evocative and emotional. Also on Friday the Junior and Senior School Cross-Country Championships were run, and now the serious business of preparing both squads for the CIC/AIC Championships begins in earnest – good luck to all competitors and thanks to the coaching staffs for their continuing efforts in one of our ‘signature’ sports. Thursday night this week saw the first of our musical concerts for the year, the Autumn Concert. Congratulations to the groups who performed so well on the night: Senior Percussion Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble 2, Guitar Ensemble 1, Ionian Voices, Jazz Band 1, Jazz Band 2, Symphony Orchestra, Junior Concert Band, Senior Concert Band, and Symphonic Winds. The concert also marked the donation of a Marimba to the College by Kathleen Moore, in memory of her son Sebastian Geisler (Year 12 2003), a talented member of the Music performance program during his time at the College, who sadly passed away in 2009. This weekend the CIC Football and Rugby fixtures commence for the Junior School while final trials take place for the Senior School - we wish all well for this busy term of games. Final Thought:

AND MISSION

SAINTS AND HEROES This week’s liturgical calendar marks the feast days of three saints – St Mark the evangelist, St Peter Chanel and St Catherine of Siena – as well as the anniversary of the death of Blessed Jozef Cebula, O.M.I., youth educator and martyr because of his priesthood. The Gospel of St Mark has been described as “one of the most raw and demanding parts of our Christian heritage”. It was the first of the Gospels to be committed to writing, and it has been described as “a passion narrative with a gospel attached”. Mark has, by tradition, been put forward as Peter’s ‘interpreter’; the first person to bring the Christian faith to Egypt; the first bishop of Alexandria; and, later, as having been associated with Venice. As one of the four evangelists proclaiming the Good News, we have much to thank St Mark for, especially, questioning the incomprehension of Jesus’ message shown by his disciples, and their lack of courage in his hour of need – if those closest to Jesus could behave in such a disappointing manner, it gives hope to the rest of us. St Peter Chanel was born in France in 1803. After some years of pastoral work there, he entered the Marist Society and went to Oceania. His work met with much local opposition which culminated with his being clubbed to death on Futuna, in the New Hebrides, in 1841. He was the first martyr from Oceania and is especially held in high esteem in New Zealand and throughout Oceania. St Catherine of Siena (born in Siena, Italy, about AD 1347), died in Rome in 1380. She became a sister of the Dominican Order in 1367. She laboured to restore peace among rival factions in Italy. She prevailed on Pope Gregory XI to return to Rome from Avignon and sought to heal the great schism that later arose. :STUDENT

Blessed Jozef Cebula, O.M.I. (1902-1941), was born in Malnia, Poland, and shot to death in the concentration camp of Mauthasen. He was considered a great youth educator and a holy priest. In his efforts to obey God rather than men, he preferred to die rather than give up exercising his priestly ministry. He spent all of his active priestly life in the formation of candidates for the priesthood or the religious life. His death as a martyr in the concentration camp was nothing other than the crowning glory of his holy life. At a Mass celebrated on 13 June 1999 in Warsaw, Pope John Paul II to the honour of the altars 108 martyrs, including Father Jozef Cebula (the third Oblate to be beatified), who gave their lives for the faith during World War II. In this post-Anzac week, we remember all who have lost their lives and suffered in wars and conflicts throughout the world, and we pray for the relief of the suffering of those who have lost family members and friends. Last Sunday, besides being Anzac Day, was also celebrated as ‘Vocations Day’ by the Catholic Church, a day for renewed prayers for people of good faith to hear God’s call to follow him. May the life of Blessed Cebula, educator of youth and martyr for the sake of his priesthood, stir up in the heart of young people the desire to follow him in his religious and priestly vocation; and may the lives of all those martyrs and servicemen and women who have died defending their faith or their country not be shed in vain. Amen. Mr John Carroll Dean of Faith

AFFAIRS

WELL DONE To our students for their presentation of the winter uniform on return from the Easter break. The Year 11s in particular are proudly wearing their College blazer for the first time! NEW COLLEGE TRACKSUIT The revamped version of the tracksuit arrived last term and already many are wearing it to Junior School sport or weekend sport in the Senior School. The name “Iona” is emblazoned across the top at the back and when worn by a collective group we look like a strong and proud team. I’d like to thank Uniform Shop convenor Mrs Madonna Codd and the team at Classic Sportswear for their efforts in producing such a fine addition to our uniform. Please note – the tracksuit top is not suitable to be worn with the College day uniform. It was permitted as part of the uniform in winter last year due to an under supply of jumpers. This year, College jumpers are readily available in the Uniform Shop. UNIFORM AT SATURDAY SPORT In the Senior school many will recall that last winter season we made the decision to make the College uniform compulsory for those students who were staying after their games to support other Iona teams. This was due to the large number of students who thought that wearing items such as board shorts with the jersey or College polo was an appropriate look. This season, the students who support after their own games are to wear either one of the following two options only. 1) Full College winter uniform, including tie and tie and blazer for Years 11 and 12; or 2) Full College tracksuit, (not a mix ‘n match version of tracksuit pants and playing jersey). Given that the parents of boys in Years 11 and 12 may be reluctant to purchase a tracksuit in their son’s final year, it would be expected that the boys in these years wore only the full winter uniform. Students should be aware that uniform demerits will be issued to those who are inappropriately attired.

SETBACKS AND DISAPPOINTMENT Given the disappointments that often surface at this time of year with assessment results and team selections etc, the following thoughts may be timely. In his song, ‘Beautiful Boy’, John Lennon once wrote that “life is what is happening to you whilst you are busy making other plans”. A very important lesson learnt early on is that life is sometimes not fair. There is no doubt that many people create an idealistic view of the way that they would like life to be, but rarely does day to day reality come anywhere near this ideal picture. One of our important duties as parents and teachers is to make sure that our children understand this and learn to live in what sometimes can be an unfair world. If we don’t do this, a large number of negative emotions, such as anger, frustration, bitterness, disappointment and sadness can build up and remain with a person for a long period of time. Such negative emotions take away our ability to fully enjoy life. Fr. Michael Twigg, Rector of Mazenod Melbourne and an Iona Old Boy, reinforced this point during the Year 12 Retreat when he said that disappointments in life can either “make us bitter or better”. Parents and schools must develop a resilience in young people that is essential for overcoming the disappointments that life will throw at us. There is an understandable tendency for us, as parents, to want to protect our children from such disappointments, but that is not always the best strategy. How we choose to respond to life’s challenges determines our experience of life. This demands that people develop both optimism and hope as part of their framework for life. Whereas optimism is a human emotion, hope has a deeper, more spiritual foundation. It is with both optimism and hope, that we find the necessary strength when we need to fight our way through difficult times. Mr Mark Harvey Dean of Students

REQUIESCAT IN PACE

Please remember the following Iona families in your prayers as they mourn the recent passing of loved ones. † The Perry family, Elliot (Year 9, Grandin) and Alexander (Year 7), on the passing of their great aunt who was a Presentation Nun. † The McManus family, Liam (Year 7), on the passing of Liam’s grandmother. May they rest in the Lord’s everlasting peace.

WYNNUM MANLY ART EISTEDDFOD Last week saw forty-six Iona boys from the Junior and Senior school head off to participate in the Wynnum Manly Art Eisteddfod, an annual competition that gives students the opportunity to showcase their creative and artistic talents against other students of similar ages from local schools. This year, as in the past, we have been very successful with many students collecting prizes and commendations for their efforts. On the Tuesday, the Senior students participated in four categories across the day; Still Life, Poster, Freehand Drawing and Cartooning Block. Each session is an hour long and required the boys to be fully focussed as there was little time to waste. Special thanks goes to Miss Sally Dent for driving the bus to and from the venue and also to Mrs Deb Bryant (Teacher Aide – Visual Art) for her help in supervising the Junior boys. Well done to all the boys who participated on the days. Senior School prize winners and commendations went to the following: Year 8 Conor Leach – Highly Commended: Freehand Drawing Thomas King – Highly Commended: Cartooning Block Isaac Dursun – Highly Commended: Poster Year 9 Sam Merlehan – Highly Commended: Freehand +Poster; 1st Place: Cartooning Block; The Vick Harvey School of Fine Art Drawing Award for Runner Up Highest Aggregate $50 Tim Ziebarth – Highly Commended: Cartooning Block Year 10 Anthony Martinez – 3rd Place: Freehand Drawing; Highly Commended: Cartooning Block; The Art Robertson Memorial Award for most promising secondary student $50 Troy McAndrew – Highly Commended: Cartooning Block; 2nd Place: Poster Making; 1st Place: Still Life; 1st Place: Freehand Drawing; Secondary School Student Highest Aggregrate; BMD Construction

Award: Outstanding Artist; Year 8, 9, and 10 –Total Prize winnings of $190 2010 CREATIVE GENERATION EXCELLENCE AWARDS IN VISUAL ART AND DESIGN On Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending the official opening of the Creative Generation Awards at the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) with Miss Sally Dent. The awards which began in 1990, have undergone a name change but continue their purpose of recognising creative young people which encourages them to further develop their talents. This year, 2009 old boy, Nicholas Warfield was chosen as one of the forty talented students from more than 500 students to enter from both state and non-state school students across Queensland. The pieces were chosen for their exploration of complex themes and issues that invite the viewer to contemplate culture, history and the world around them. Nicholas’s work, Bloodlines, is a self portrait that explores his physical journey of his day to day life. It comprises, a collection of bus and train tickets, in addition to admission tickets of myriad places he has visited in his own personal journey such as football games, movies, theme parks, museums etc. They have been stitched together with red thread, lending further significance to the title, Bloodlines. Nick says that the tickets express his connection to the city and illustrate how the train lines act like bloodlines in the city; feeding people through its veins to keep it alive. The 2010 Creative Generation Excellence Awards in Visual Art and Design Exhibition is on display until 17 May in Gallery 3.1 at GoMA, South Brisbane. After this time it will travel around Queensland to a large number of regional galleries. This exhibition is an outstanding showcase of what Visual Art embodies in our contemporary culture and is well worth a visit. Mrs Kirsten Eadie Head of Department—Visual Art

SPORT NEWS This Saturday, Iona trials against St Patrick’s, Shorncliffe in both football and rugby. The sports department will also endeavour to organise trials for our lower grade teams as St Patrick’s does not have the depth of our programmes. The logistics of such endeavours are not always practical. Last Saturday, our rugby teams encountered lower grade Nudgee teams. It was a workable trial that Nudgee appreciated as it put some of their teams under pressure. Forsaking ‘winning’ for equity in games seems logical. Our football teams were up against quality opposition in Brisbane State High. The Iona community are reminded of Saturday dress expectation: College uniform, playing gear or College tracksuit. Uniform or tracksuit is required for players staying behind to spectate.

RUGBY RESULTS: Trial results verses Nudgee (opposition grade listed): 1st XV (2nds): Lost 15A (B): Won 2nd XV (4ths): Lost 15B (D): Won 3rd XV (6ths): Won 15C (Blue): Won 16A (B): Won 14A (B): Won 16B (D): Lost 14B (D): Won 16C (Blue): Won 14C (Blue): Won 14D (White): Won

13A (B): Won 13B (D): Won 13C (E): Won

FOOTBALL RESULTS: A challenging weekend for Iona's secondary football teams in their trials verse Brisbane State High - one of the leading GPS schools. In their first hit out for 2010 most teams found the going tough and will need to work hard at training over the next few weeks. Congratulations to the 3rds (won 3-1) and the 1st XI (won 4-2). All teams are at St Pat's this weekend (except for the 13C, 14C, 15C and 3rd XI - no games for this weekend). Best of luck to all teams.

INTER HOUSE CROSS COUNTRY Congratulations to all involved in the annual inter house cross country which proved to be extremely close in 2010. Thanks to Mr Lonergan for his organisation of the event.

IONA COLLEGE JUNIOR SPORTS INFORMATION INTERHOUSE CROSS COUNTRY CARNIVAL

RUGBY AND FOOTBALL TRIALS V ASHGROVE The boys are to be congratulated for their behaviour and conduct at the trial game verse Ashgrove last weekend. We did to them in football what they did to us in rugby. With three cancelled training sessions within our pre -season schedule, it certainly did make it difficult to get some structure and continuity in our games, particularly rugby. Hopefully from now on the bad weather is behind us as we move to two training sessions weekly.

RUGBY AND FOOTBALL—ROUND 1 v CHURCHIE (SUPPLEMENTARY GAMES v BBC & NC) Round 1 of the CIC season begins this weekend with all games played at home verse Churchie (supplementary games verse BBC and NC). As with cricket the three biggest games this season will be in the first three rounds. Remember: turn up at least 30 minutes before kick-off; don’t forget your protective gear / water bottles; play hard and never give up! Lets bring home some bacon this weekend.

CIC RUGBY Round 1—Saturday, 1 May

Last Friday the Junior School hosted its annual Interhouse Cross Country Carnival. The boys are to be congratulated on their efforts as student participation was almost at 100%. Again the sausage sizzle organised by the CSA after each race proved to be a great success. A big thank you to Mr Holmes and the CSA parents who volunteered to help prepare, serve and cook on the day. Congratulations to Mazenod House who were able to take out the Championship for 2010.

CIC CROSS COUNTRY SQUAD The top 10-15 runners in each age group have been asked to join the CIC Cross Country Squad. Already these boys have been given a training schedule to prepare themselves for the CIC Cross Country Championships on June 2.

Our College is fortunate to have such experienced and dedicated coaches in Mrs McLaughlin, Mr Heazlett and Mr McClure.

RUGBY AND FOOTBALL CANTEENS A decision has been made not to distribute canteen roster forms this year however, both the rugby and football canteens will still be fully operational and WE DO NEED HELP TO SERVE / COOK etc. If all parents are able to assist in the canteen half an hour before their son’s game whilst they warm up, it would be greatly appreciated. PLEASE ASSIST YOUR SCHOOL IN THIS MATTER.

Attendance and enthusiasm at training so far has been excellent. Keep up the good work boys! A canteen will also be operational at this Friday’s meet. I ask all parents of our Cross Country squad to assist in serving at the canteen this Friday afternoon if you are able.
