From the Principal

D

uring 2016 the School has continued to be a learning environment that respects and honours the achievements of the past, but importantly continues to look to the future.

A Director of Student Futures has been appointed to support this initiative and to ensure that progressively, students are taking greater ownership of their learning and the future directions they wish to pursue.

Since its inception 101 years ago, Ivanhoe Grammar School has been committed to service, learning and leadership and, in the past 20 years, to developing students with a global outlook.

In Term 3, as part of the development of a new Strategic Plan 2018-2020, the Australian Council of Educational Research (ACER) undertook a full review of the School speaking to all key stakeholders – students, staff, parents, management and alumni. The review provided an excellent opportunity for the School to reflect on current practices and the feedback from ACER was most affirming. The reviewing panel also highlighted some areas for the senior management team and the School in general to consider to further improve student outcomes and overall efficiency. Work has already commenced on a number of the suggested areas and will form part of our next strategic plan.

This has led to the introduction of many local and international opportunities for students which will be expanded even further with the launch of a Global Citizenship Centre (GCC) in 2017. The GCC will work across all three campuses embedding the principles of Round Square and ensuring all students at Ivanhoe Grammar School graduate with 21st century skills in intercultural understanding, creativity, innovation and enterprise. As outlined previously, changes to the language offerings in 2017 further support our emphasis on Global Citizenship. Following an extensive review, a new and personalised future-focused Senior Years Pastoral Model will also be introduced for the 2017 academic year. Each student in the Senior Years will be allocated a mentor and will meet regularly to receive personal, academic and futures mentoring.

Finally, I take this opportunity to thank the entire Ivanhoe Community for your support in my first year as Principal and to wish all graduating members of the Class of 2016 well in the future.

Farewell David Waugh

Mr Justin Peat

David Waugh joined Ivanhoe in 1975. There is insufficient space here to do more than trace the career at the School of ‘The Colonel’, a devoted school teacher whose influence ranged so widely over more than forty years.

Mr Justin Peat has recently been appointed to the cross campus role of Director of Student Futures and will join us at the start of the 2017 School year. Justin brings to Ivanhoe vast experience in innovative, future-focused academic mentoring and tertiary futures programs. He has in-depth understanding of what students need to navigate their academic pathway through school in order to be prepared for a meaningful future matching their individual aspirations. Through his expertise and established relationships with leading institutions overseas and in Australia, Stanford, Yale, UC Berkeley, Oxford and Cambridge will become viable pathways for students. We welcome Justin, his wife Fleur and their children to Ivanhoe Grammar School. 

Mr Tom Rickards Mr Tom Rickards will commence in 2017 as the new Head of Senior School at The Ridgeway Campus. Mr Rickards joins us from Carey Baptist Grammar School where he has been primarily responsible for the Pastoral Care of Senior Years students as Deputy Head of Senior School. Mr Rickards is recognised as a leading educator among Victorian independent schools and will bring to Ivanhoe a tremendous passion for the wellbeing of students. 

As a scientist David nourished and extended generations of young minds in this subject area. An accomplished teacher across all the scientific disciplines, David was especially renowned for his teaching of Biology, with senior students clamouring to choose this subject in Years 11 and 12 under his tutelage. David’s impact on the Ivanhoe Cadet Unit has been profound and enduring. He was instrumental in developing a Youth Leadership Program that has provided countless young men and women with the opportunity to challenge themselves. Beyond Cadets, David served in the most senior positions in the School, as Thoresby Housemaster, Year 11 and Year 12 Level Master, Head of Senior School at The Ridgeway Campus and Assistant Headmaster. We wish David all the best for a fulfilling and well-deserved retirement. 

Personalised Mentoring Following an extensive review, a new and personalised future-focused Senior Years pastoral model has been introduced across the School called Personalised Mentoring. counselling, students will be able to set goals and targets for the future that will assist them greatly in motivation and ensuring a focus for their studies. This consistent support of students will enable greater connections with tertiary providers and provide a wide range of tertiary opportunities for our graduating students.

O

ver the next twelve months, Ivanhoe Grammar School is delighted to be progressively rolling out its new model of Personalised Mentoring for students in Years 7 to 12. This new initiative which commenced on Monday 14 November at Plenty and The Ridgeway Campus will see secondary

and integrating the principles of a growth-mindset, students will implement concrete strategies to develop character strengths and be more effective learners.

A highly effective tool for ensuring academic success. Capturing every student’s academic

develop their personal strengths, achieve academic success and plan their future pathways in line with their personal attributes, motivations and goals.

students work closely with a selected mentor to develop their own wellbeing, academic and futures plan. Built on the premise that every student is unique, and therefore deserving of a personalised educational experience, Personalised Mentoring aims to help each student reach their potential – and do so alongside a skilled guide who knows them well. The process of Personalised Mentoring has three key dimensions:

A proactive process for developing wellbeing in every student. Moving beyond simply teaching about wellbeing, Personalised Mentoring will involve each student reflecting on their personal strengths and putting in place development goals. Taking on board a strengths-based approach 8 | Ivanhoe News Magazine

progress is a vital part of the mentoring process. Employing digital tools it is now possible for every student to have a digital dashboard on which regular reflection can take place. This part of the process will see every student have regular mentoring discussions about their academic progress, and to be able to set SMART goals in each of their subjects. The rich learning conversations that will come out of this process will be of value to each student, assisting greatly in personal motivation and achievement.

A personalised plan for the future. Through this new structure, each student will develop a personalised plan for their future that is tailored to their individual needs and aspirations. Through the use of evidence-based academic and tertiary futures

To enable this highly personalised approach, changes have been made to our pastoral structures that will see a significant increase in the time available for the mentoring of students. In addition, a number of new positions have been created to manage the process. The Personalised Mentoring initiative will vary slightly between Middle Years and Senior Years, however the essential elements of the program will remain the same. Students will receive their Personal Plan template electronically and complete their own responses before sending it through to the Deputy/Head of House (Senior Years) or Mentor Teacher (Middle Years). Following this students will then have their Futures Meetings with their personal mentor, discuss their responses, make adjustments and set some goals for the upcoming weeks, months and years. This process will be repeated four times a year to ensure that all students are supported as they make progress towards their goals. As we prepare our students for a global future where continuous change is the norm, we aim to create young men and women who are confident, resilient and equipped with the skills to be the leaders of tomorrow. We believe that in putting in place a structure that aims to develop the potential of every single student, Ivanhoe Grammar School is making a strong statement about what really matters in education today.

Brendan Kelly Deputy Principal/ Head of The Ridgeway Campus


Q&A with Steve Brophy We sat down with the Director of ICT and e-Learning, Steve Brophy to discuss the future direction of technology at the School. What does Ivanhoe Grammar School currently do in the digital space? Ivanhoe’s digital footprint is significant. From hosting the innovative TeachTechPlay conference to developing modern, digitally connected classrooms, our School prides itself on being at the cutting edge of technology. Student learning is amplified through access to personal mobile learning devices and online learning resources that provide 24/7 access to learning. Fabrication tools such as 3D printers are embedded in our curriculum as a digital resource to encourage student creativity. Students are connected to new opportunities such as virtual debates and global conversations through video conferencing. Our students are empowered to be digital role models through our Digital Leader Program and Digital Technologies curriculum.

What is the importance of digital literacy in education? In a report from the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) on the new basics that young people need for their future, Digital Literacy was listed as the most in demand by employers. In the past three years, there has been a 212 per cent increase in the demand for young people to be able to read, write and contribute in a digitally-meaningful way. To think that the World Wide Web is only in its late twenties and that YouTube is only eleven years old gives us a sense of the rapid rate of growth we have seen in the first few years of this century. Our goal is to develop learners who are highly adaptable and can thrive in this era of rapid change.

What are the differences between what we do at Ivanhoe and other schools? Digital technologies are embedded in the fabric of everything Ivanhoe does

As a learner, I’m “trying to rival my five year old daughter’s curiosity...

as a school. Through in-house software development we customise and integrate digital solutions to work for all community members. In the classroom our focus is putting the technology in the hands of the students and challenging them to be creators of content instead of consumers of content. We openly share our teaching and learning practices with the world through our school blog, Ivanhoe Learn ivanhoelearn.com and the celebration of innovation drives us to keep improving what we do as a School.

What does the future landscape of digital technology look like for Ivanhoe and the education sector? It is equals parts exhilarating and intimidating. Web 3.0, the Internet of Things, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality - the list goes on and on. For Ivanhoe and the education sector, the biggest challenge is how we traverse this, so we need to be discerning with where we focus our energy but also open to new possibilities. We are developing a strong culture of innovation where digital technologies are used to solve problems. If we keep things simple, i.e. our core business is and always will be improving learning, then we have a simple metric to validate the effectiveness of new technologies.

Does it improve IT learning? If it does, then great. If not, then we move past it.

What are your memorable moments at Ivanhoe? My memorable moments always involve students. Watching students challenge themselves to take risks with their learning and work through the trips, falls, mistakes or failures to develop solutions is always a highlight. Watching students empowered to teach other students and share their knowledge and skills is always a highlight of my day. One particular example of this that stands out is when the Buckley House Digital Leaders and I ran a session for teachers at the TeachTechPlay conference. The teachers were blown away by the capacity and poise of our students and the memory still makes me smile.

What do you like about working in this space? I love how dynamic it is. As a learner, I’m trying to rival my five year old daughter’s curiosity and the digital landscape provides so many avenues to learn, connect, share and grow. I’m blown away daily by the level of innovation and ingenuity of our staff and students. 

Peter Pan Jr. Musical Students from across Buckley House, from Prep to Year 6 were involved in the spectacular production of Peter Pan Jr. Opening night was a feast of colour and movement with energetic performances by students and a wonderful set that brought to life the much-loved story of Peter Pan. The cast were outstanding in the way they applied themselves and in providing two nights of wonderful entertainment. Buckley House staff went above and beyond to assist with costumes, makeup, props, coaching and much more. The support received from the parent community was also appreciated. They helped with costumes, bringing children to rehearsals, giving up Saturday afternoons, assisting with the learning of lines and many other important things which helped to prepare students for the show. ď Ż

Dance and Drama Plenty Campus The year commenced with the hugely successful Stephen Sondheim classic Into The Woods. Performed at the Plenty Ranges Arts and Convention Centre. The production saw over 100 secondary students involved. There have been several enhancements to the Drama Studio, a new bio box and sound system have been installed, and there are plans to fully upgrade the lighting system. This space will soon have the technical capacity to match the creativity of our students and in 2017 Theatre Studies will be available as a Unit 1 and 2 curriculum offering. Our Secondary Dance Group has also been a welcome addition to the performing arts landscape. This group of talented dancers performed beautifully at our annual Performing Arts Concert, and are preparing for another performance at the Summer Recital.

The Ridgeway Campus, VCE Monologue

The Ridgeway Campus The Arts have exploded over the past few years at both a curriculum and co-curricular level. The year kicked off well with two students selected to present their VCE work in Top Acts, a first for Ivanhoe. Since then, we’ve had a school musical (Songs for a New World), a VCE play (Metamorphoses), a school play (A Servant to Two Masters), a Year 9 Out-of-Classroom project, a visit from the Bell Shakespeare Players, a program of VCE monologues and a performance from a brilliant Commedia Dell’Arte troupe targeted at the Middle Years. On top of that, there have been numerous theatre visits to Melbourne Theatre Company, La Mama and Theatreworks to give our students the opportunity of seeing actors working in the broadest range of theatre styles. Where to next? Our co-curricular program has made clear that there is a growing interest in the areas of Dance and Theatre Technology amongst our student body. The impact of dance imbues young bodies and minds with a skill set that develops physical co-ordination, confidence, leadership opportunities (for Dance Captains in the musical) and most importantly, the ability to think quickly, laterally and with anticipation. Dance-extension classes have also been scheduled after school in jazz and tap.

Plenty Campus Drama

Not everyone is suited to performance, however the desire to contribute to a creative process strikes broad interest from our students who show a fascination with the ‘nuts and bolts’ side of theatre-making. These components include lighting, sound design, AV, set design and construction, costuming and marketing; all these components play a part in the final performance product and offer avenues of involvement for students. So watch this space. It is a great chapter in the life of all-things-creative at Ivanhoe. With all of these opportunities, we are realising what we set out to achieve as a premier training ground for the young and creative minds in our charge, in and around theatre making. The way ahead is abundant with promise.

International journeys

Students on the India trip

Students and teachers on the international trip to China

Year 9 journeys ‘A World of Opportunities’ Out-of-Classroom experiences provided Year 9 students with independent learning and cultural exchange. During the Term 3 break a number of Year 9 trips took place to China, India, Thailand and Bali. The Year 9 Out-ofClassroom Program is aligned with the School’s commitment to the Middle School philosophy of engaging Year 9 students and providing them with an opportunity for independent learning and cultural exchange. The trip to China ran from Wednesday 7 September until Sunday 18 September with 16 students attending. Students were able to fully immerse themselves in the local culture by attending classes with local Chinese Ivanhoe Grammar School students in Shanghai. There 18 | Ivanhoe News Magazine

were many sightseeing opportunities, including trips to the ancient Terra Cotta Warriors, a bicycle tour of the ancient wall of X’ian, an awe-inspiring trip to the Great Wall of China, a day tour of Beijing’s Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. The India trip ran from Wednesday 7 September to Monday 19 September. Student stayed at the historic Daley College in Indore which was established in 1870. Lessons in pottery and painting alongside yoga sessions were part of life at Daly College. Students also took part in the Daly College cultural course, a tour of the Golden Triangle and visits to world-famous sights such as the Taj Mahal, Nahargarh Fort and the Amber Fort. From Thursday 8 September to Saturday 17 September 14, students and two teachers travelled to Thailand. Students got the chance to experience Thai culture through a myriad of activities such as cooking Thai cuisine, adventurous activities in Northern Thailand, community service within local schools and learning all about the Asian elephant. School visits were a

highlight where Ivanhoe students made friendships with local children. A stimulating program was enjoyed by students on the Bali trip. They learnt about the Balinese way of life and gained an appreciation and understanding of the spirituality and gratitude in Balinese culture. The group was hosted at the totally sustainable Green Camp in Bali where they had to hand over their mobile phones enabling students to fully participate and stay engaged. The Bali trip gave plenty of opportunity for sightseeing at temples, volcanoes and an extensive field trip to Kenari Eco Institutes.

In particular, our Founder, Reverend Sydney Buckley and his conviction to build people of character - not just through educational excellence, but through actively contributing to society via community service. This position has been the key driver behind our recently launched marketing campaign, This.Girl.Can, This.Boy.Can, Together.We.Can - created by our in-house Communications and Marketing team - celebrating our belief in our students to achieve whatever they set their minds to. This campaign also launches for us a new statement under our logo: ‘courageous and kind’. This replaces our previous statement ‘A coeducational community’. Our hope for our students is, that whenever they can, they will lead life in a courageous and

communications and the campaign has launched in our advertising and digital platforms. So far the campaign has received an overwhelmingly positive response.

Being courageous and kind are characteristics already embedded in our School philosophy. These are not new words to our School Community - and importantly, we recognise they have very personal meaning to individuals.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the team on this new campaign and would like to take this opportunity to thank the School community for welcoming me to Ivanhoe Grammar School this year.

2016 Girls’ Athletics Premiership team

Athletics Premiership As sunset fell on Lakeside Stadium, Albert Park, new AGSV Athletics champions emerged.

In a dominating performance, the Girls’ Athletics team won the AGSV Athletics Championships by a remarkable 55 points in front of their nearest rivals, with a total of 318 points. This was truly a whole School effort as girls from all year levels contributed to the win. Three individual performances of note were Charly Rouch (Year 9), Alessia Wynne (Year 7) and Chloe Jacobi (Year 7). Charly and Alessia were in five events and won each of their events. Alessia set two new AGSV records in the process. Chloe won four of her five events and it took an AGSV record breaking performance to beat her (Chloe’s time, 0.06secs slower than her opponent was also quicker than the previous AGSV record). Tahnysha Salanoa was another stand-out, breaking the record in Shot Put.

The boys performed well and finished in 6th place. The total score of 376.5 was only 2.5 points behind fifth and a 30 point improvement on last year. The highlight was the performance of our U13 Boys’ athletes, particularly Zak Marin, who won the 100m, 200m and anchored the 4 x 100m Relay team. Congratulations to Mr Branigan, Mr Dalton, Ms van Beek, Ms Parodi and Mr Verrocchi for their untiring efforts in preparing the team, alongside all the external coaches who provided expertise in the various disciplines. Well done to all students who competed so valiantly for the School. 

Three Consecutive Premierships Netball continued to grow in 2016 from 20 to 22 teams and with that came wonderful success across all age groups. Many teams went the whole season with only one or two losses. Buckley House also managed to get to the finals. Whilst it is not all about winning it is about the experience and this year was no exception. For the third year in a row the Firsts Netball girls won the AGSV/APS Premiership. The last game against Mentone sealed the season and Ivanhoe finished undefeated. The Premiership team was: Captain Olivia Gigli, Vice- Captain Georgia Harper, Isabella Hines, Tahnysha Siania Salanoa, Emily Anderson, Lauren Pentony, Ella Shannon and Suli Leta. Well done all. 

Congratulations to the whole Aerobics team on one of the most successful years to date. Their dedication and effort resulted in 12 gold medals! 

Once again the First XVIII Football team had a very successful season, ending the school’s 50 plus year Premiership drought. Despite many previous wins the Ivanhoe boys could not exert the scoreboard pressure that was needed to break their very accomplished opponents during the SemiFinal. The Ivanhoe boys put in effort that was first class and indicative of the excellent way they went about this footy season. 

The 2016 Soccer season was most definitely filled with many highs and lows but this roller coaster provided the Soccer girls another opportunity to grow and develop as individuals and also as a team. Throughout the entire season we worked hard and this definitely paid off as we finished the season with some wins. 

Aerobics Trophy Winners

Girls’ Basketball Girls’ Firsts Basketball had a very successful start to the season on the back of the girls’ participation on the USA Basketball Tour in December for the first time. Coming out with a strong start our team managed to win four from four games. Unfortunately after this the team experienced a series of losses and, as a result, placed 5th overall. It is reassuring to know that whilst the team looses six senior players, there is still depth in the remaining members. 

The 2016 Water Polo season was very successful for all of the girls teams. The girls proudly won the majority of their games. Their wins can be attributed to the timeless amounts of hard work, effort and determination each girl consistently provided each week. 

Girls’ Football is an exciting new initiative taking place at the school. The first team was introduced in 2015, however, this year the team saw numbers increase to unbelievable levels, with participation being our main focus this year. With the assistance of some experienced players the senior team was able to come away with 2 from 2 wins in our individual games and coming fifth overall in our round robin games. The future of footy is bright at Ivanhoe. 

Each week the plethora of talent in the Ivanhoe Cross Country team produced plenty of top 20 results (special mention to Justin Cemeton who was consistently in the top 3 Juniors), but the main emphasis was always on having a great time competing. 

Snowsports In no time at all, mid-August brought the Cross Country race weekend and later on, the Alpine Race Week with many Junior School students trying racing for the first time and several experienced students producing excellent results. We had great success notably in the VIC Interschools - the single biggest ski race event. 

Craig challenged the audience to take their health more seriously and to train the brain to create habitual lifestyle changes which can reduce the aging process and mitigate serious health concerns. Mark (’90) highlighted the importance of early detection of prostate and testicular cancers and discussed the Movember Foundation’s programs which seek to engage youth in talking about depression, stress and anxiety.

New Chair of Ivanhoe Parents and Friends

Presentation of inaugural Sport Awards

Belinda Hopper has stepped down from her role as Chair of IP&F after three years of dedicated leadership. She has been associated with the School since 2002 when her eldest son, Jack, commenced in Buckley House. Her second son, Alex, completed Year 12 this year. Belinda has been a regular volunteer for many activities at the School including assisting in the Library, acting as a Year Level representative and as Convenor of the Friends of Ridgeway Music for several years. We thank Belinda for her contribution.

At the Teams of the Centenary Dinner in October 2015, the School created two new Sporting Awards to honour the lives of two exceptional Ivanhoe Grammarian sportsmen.

Belinda’s successor, Jodie Quick, joined our community when her son, Blake, commenced in the Early Learning Centre in 2007. Jodie’s husband, Matthew, was a member of the Class of 1990. Jodie was a member of the Friends of Buckley House for many years and, through her company Meridian Travel, has been a generous donor to major School events and was a Centenary Sponsor in 2015. Jodie is currently a Year Level representative and looks forward to the challenges of her new role as Chair of Ivanhoe Parents and Friends. 

Acknowledging our parent volunteers Under the umbrella of Ivanhoe Parents and Friends, we have 14 Parent Support Groups across our three Campuses. The School deeply appreciates the enthusiasm, time and effort of the many parents who help to enrich the lives of our students. Our groups support Music and Drama activities, sporting activities such as Kayaking, Snow Sports, Cricket, Rugby and Equestrian, friend and fundraising activities through the Friends of Buckley House, Friends of Plenty Campus, Friends of Plenty Primary, The Ladies’ Association, Greek Parents’ Association and Ivanhoe Scouts. The Principal hosted a Volunteers Thank You Function on Tuesday 8 November to acknowledge the service and support of these Groups during 2016.

A ‘Best Sport Captain’ Award was named after Ben Cookson, to be presented annually to the best open captain in either boys or girls sport. Ben was a member of the Class of 2001 and had an illustrious cricket career at Ivanhoe, captaining both the School and AGSV teams in 2001, playing a vital role in two premierships and scoring three centuries. Ben contracted cancer in 2014 and passed away in June 2015 at just 31 years of age. On Thursday 18 August this year, the Principal hosted a function for the open Netball team and their parents to celebrate winning the AGSV/APS Premiership for the third season in succession. Ben’s parents, Shane and Joanne, presented the Ben Cookson Award to team captain, Olivia Gigli. An Award for the Best Player in the First XVIII was named in honour of David O’Halloran (’73). David was a valued member of the First XVIII, leading the team in his final year at Ivanhoe. On leaving School, he was recruited to the Hawthorn Football Club and played his first senior game in 1976. In a career spanning nine years, he played 160 senior games and represented Victoria three times. He played in four Grand Finals culminating in Premiership wins in 1976 and 1983. David was elected into the School’s Hall of Fame in 2001. He passed away suddenly in 2013. On Friday 2 September at the Senior Years Winter Sports Awards Assembly, Karen O’Halloran presented the David O’Halloran Award to Matthew Signorello from Plenty Campus.  December 2016 - Issue no. 131 | 25


From the OIGA President

A

s the Association’s new OIGA President and a proud Old Ivanhoe Grammarian, I am excited to be leading this unique network and to uphold our mission to reach, connect and support current and past students. A little bit about me: I graduated in 1989 from The Ridgeway Campus and was a Prefect in my final year. As a student, I was highly involved in the Cadet program and most enjoyed athletics, cross country and cricket. I’m currently working for Jet Star and am a proud father of two daughters who currently attend Plenty Campus. I look forward to working alongside the OIGA Councillors, and would especially like to thank Vice-President Peter Swain (’75) for his outstanding commitment, support and leadership, and indeed for mentoring me in this role.

Leanne and Wayne Vanderwert with daughters Tayla and Zali

Now for a recap of 2016 – we began the year launching our first OIG website and ended the year with an outstanding performing and visual arts show. The Men’s Health Forum was also supported by alumni which contributed to the Movember campaign and it has been great to see the reunion program continuing to bring alumni together. The role alumni play in the lives of our students cannot be underestimated, and we really appreciate your participation in programs and activities including: Year 12 Preparation Day, The Careers Expo, the four OIGA House Lunches at The Ridgeway Campus and multiple alumni sessions with a transition and wellbeing focus held at Plenty Campus. The year also saw the emergence of coffee catch-ups on campus hosted by Elise Dunstan (’01) and Alex Bacskos (’13) with the objective to bring alumni who are studying and working at universities together. The first was held at Latrobe and there will be others held at Melbourne, Monash, RMIT and Swinburne Universities in 2017 – register your interest by emailing alumni@ivanhoe.com.au

Farewell Peter Swain (’75) In June, Peter stepped down from his role as President of the OIGA after seven years of outstanding service to the OIGA. His tenure saw the implementation of the strategic plan to increase the awareness of alumni to the Association through social media, reunion activities and networking events. A hands-on President in every respect he steered the Association through the busy years prior to the School’s Centenary which culminated in a great year of celebration in 2015. Peter remains on Council as Vice President.

OIGA News Old Ivanhoe Revue and Alumni Art Exhibition Supported by the OIGA, the inaugural Old Ivanhoe Revue enjoyed great success with three out of four sell-out shows. The Revue (a series of quirky, comedic sketches with an Ivanhoe flavour) ran over four nights from Monday 31 October until Friday 4 November in Schuster Theatre of ArtsEdge at Locksley. Performed by four highly talented thespians: Claude Jabbour (’04), George Dimarelos (’04), Tash Findlay (’15) and Ruby Maishman (’15), the entire production including lighting and sound, filming, music, backstage, make-up and front-of-house drew on a much larger pool of alumni and special thanks go to: David Pratico (’04), Dan Matheson (’04), Raushaan Seychell (’15), Irene Papagrigoriou (’09), Liam Mantesso (’14), Fiona Ye (’15), Bill Taleski (’07) and Mat Foudoulis (’07). The Art Exhibition, held next to the theatre, displayed nine alumni artist’s work. It was wonderful to see so many alumni attend each night, and to see many marvel at the renovated Arts hub. It was a joy for so many alumni to be a part of this successful Creative and Performing Arts Program and we look forward to the next one.

I had to run all year and do a lot of things right before that consistency of performance came. All of those pieces had to fit together balancing work and life was critical to my success.’ 

The Ridgeway Club A club is only as good as those who lead it and we have been extremely fortunate to have had two excellent leaders in President James Norman (’86) and Vice President Grant Nichol steer the Club through a very successful year. The Club is well on its way to fulfilling its goal of assisting to fund the Year 9 Enterprise Centre and also contributed substantial funds to the refurbishment of the multimedia room in the Creative Arts Centre at Plenty. Lunches were held at some excellent venues throughout the year and once again a very successful golf weekend was held at Cape Schanck. The Club is always on the lookout for new members. Contact Geoff Brown (’62) on + 61 3 9490 3423 if you are interested. 

The family also generously donated a pencil portrait of John, the painting of which hangs in the ANZ Building in Collins Street. The pencil portrait was created some 20 years ago by artist Wes Walters and now hangs in the Meeting Room. A short biography of John’s very significant career is placed at the entrance to the meeting room confirming John’s membership of the School’s Gallery of Achievement and to inspire young Ivanhoe students to be bold in their future-thinking and aspirations. John has also left his legacy in Buckley House through the creation of an annual award known as the John Gough Spirit of Ivanhoe Award. 

The Meikle Chemistry Award was generously established last year by the family of the late Andrew Meikle (’82) who in a serendipitous twist not only was taught Mathematics by Lucas's grandfather, James Yong from Year 9 through to Year 11 but was also his Form Teacher for Year 11. Andrew’s sister, Gail Gilham and other family members were present to meet both recipients. 

Supporting Ivanhoe Scholarships at Ivanhoe At the recent Donor Thank You event held in the School House Boardroom, Principal Gerard Foley thanked donors for their philanthropic support of the School; ‘Your gifts cannot be overestimated, and are never taken for granted’. The focus of seeking philanthropic support this year has been on seeking gifts for access scholarships. Over the last five years, nine new scholarships have been established – all for worthy students whose families could not afford an Ivanhoe education without financial assistance. Many of the guests at the Donor Thank You event were involved in creating these scholarships. The most recently named scholarships include the Sinclaire Trust Scholarship funded by Board member Sandra Ivory, the Staff Supported Scholarship which is currently supported by 54 current and past staff, and the Norma Marsh Scholarship established by Randal Marsh (’77) as a gift to his mother Norma to mark the occasion of her recent 90th birthday. After Gerard’s moving words, one guest commented - ‘I want to do even more to help those deserving children come to Ivanhoe’.

Ladies’ Association members

My father had, and I continue to have a great belief in furthering the opportunities of young people who could not otherwise consider an Ivanhoe education. Ivanhoe has so much to offer, including cocurricular opportunities, which help build the all-round individual. The Sinclaire Trust wishes all 2017 Scholarship recipients a rewarding time at Ivanhoe and an exciting future.

Scholarships range from $10,000 - $14,000 a year, and there are many kinds of arrangements possible to help you achieve your goals in supporting young people to receive an Ivanhoe education.

T

he Impact of Giving Report overleaf recognises and celebrates the generosity of our donors whose support has a positive impact on students and facilities. The collective gifts from Ivanhoe’s alumni, parents, support groups, friends, together with current and past staff, have assisted in shaping the campus landscape as students’ needs evolve, and made it possible for students of modest means to experience an Ivanhoe education. Almost 60 per cent of donations this year have been directed to scholarships.

The following named scholarships have been created by members of the Ivanhoe Family during the past three years: • • • • • • • • •
