COUNSELLOR’S NOTES It was with much excitement that I joined the Rundle Academy family in September as the new school counsellor! My first weeks here have been a flurry of getting to know the wonderful staff, students, and parents in the community, and I have immensely enjoyed every minute.

As the year progresses, you can expect to see my involvement in various school activities and initiatives concerning health and wellness. I welcome your ideas and feedback regarding relevant issues and topics that you would like to see addressed within our community.

Before transitioning into my work as a psychologist, I was an elementary school teacher for 10 years. After working as a counsellor in various public and private sector environments, I am thrilled to be back in a school. I have a great deal of passion for education and counselling and see this position as the perfect combination of both. My role here encompasses personal, career and academic counselling, as well as coordinating student schedules and IPPs. Students are welcomed and encouraged to access my services directly, and there may also be times when I connect with a student based on a teacher, administrator or parent referral.

Warm Regards,

Ms. Jana-Lynn Caines caines@rundle.ab.ca 403-250-2965 (ext. 103)

ACADEMY ALUMNUS WINS AWARD Rundle Academy Alumnus Wins ‘Peter Gzowski Learner Award’ On the evening of September 21st, Rachel Dornian received the Peter Gzowski Learner Award. This award is presented each year to an individual who has worked hard to overcome a Learning Disability. Since graduating from Rundle Academy in 2004, Rachel has certainly done many things to earn this award. She has travelled and volunteered extensively and is now nearing the completion of her Cultural Anthropology degree at Mount Royal University. Many of Rachel’s high school teachers were in attendance to see her receive the Learner Award and listened to her give her acceptance speech. Her Speech … nature, that it’s nurture, that we just need to buck up and get some fresh air and exercise. The list goes on. It’s easy, then, to understand why, if I’m doing well enough in life and school, I rather just not talk about it. But I should talk about it, because I am so grateful. I am grateful to be standing before you today. Grateful to have parents that saw me struggling before I knew I was, and who actively sought out support services and innovative teachers. I am grateful to the teachers, mentors and professors who saw in me not a disorganized and cheeky girl unable to write anything academic longer than a paragraph without the use of a computer, but as a dynamic thinker, set alight by the beauty and intricacies of people in their everyday lives, someone who would gladly take a thousand senior theory-based classes to avoid the trite introductory ones with simple questions answered by yes or no that I find so impossible to comprehend. People who saw in me the cultural anthropologist that I am becoming today. People who made it possible for me to look at you and say, with absolute certainty that, though unorthodox, I do have a skill set, and am employable thank you very much, and that in many ways my learning difficulties can actually function as an asset. “This award has come as quite a surprise; I didn’t know that I was nominated for it until about a week ago. It is quite an honour, and a compliment to be considered for such an achievement. Learning difficulties are hard to articulate. You don’t want to contribute to the cliches that surround them, and you don’t want to get caught up in long winded explanations that cause someone’s eyes glaze over or, alternately, triggers their inner expert to rear its head in a tirade of misplaced good intention-rife with references to THAT study and the latest findings that popped up on yahoo.com. If the latter is the case, it won’t be long until you’re being told that meds work, meds don’t work, ADHD’s caused by diet, or is the obvious result of our fast-paced technological society. That it’s not the learner but the modernist structure of our institutions that is the problem, that It’s

So allow me to tell you about my so-called “learning disability.” You know that kid who is consistently energetic, who’s hand is always up in class, who gets so excited by what you’re saying that she cuts you off before you finish with a diatribe that you know is tangentially related to what you were talking about, or trying to teach, but you can’t quite figure out how? That was me. Imagine for a second, the shape of the learning curve. You know that hump near the top of it, that last little bit of elevation gain before the summit of mastery? It’s mighty pronounced for me. My hump is the Quasi motto to everyone else’s little hump from sitting at a computer all day. Once I have it I have it, and can excel quite quickly, but that hump has meant that I’ve been known to slide back down the curve a few times. Continued on next page.

ACADEMY ALUMNI WINS AWARD CONTINUED My mom says that by the end of Kindergarten I could barely write my name in capital letters, yet by the end of grade two I was content to curl up with books designed for kids older than me. That is why innovative teaching styles are so exceedingly important, because I am sure that in a differently structured classroom, with different teachers-teachers who chastised, or standardized progress, I would not have excelled in reading as I did. I remember writing the grade six provincial exam by hand, unable to formulate the thoughts and connections I was having in my mind on the page, each cough and scratch of another’s pencil on paper an added frustration, and the sinking feeling one has when they know that, for them at least, they are performing subpar. Fast Forward to teenagehood, a liminal period for most of us. I have no memory of specific focus issues, just that I wasn’t happy, and hated homework. What was the point of it? I was there all day long anyways. My marks tended to be varied, Report cards teemed with comments about “not working up to potential” and vague references to teacher’s perception of my insubstantial effort.

Moving out of the public system was not my choice per say, rather an executive maternal decision. Rundle Academy was small, I had to wear a kilt, and there was not the most active fine arts program. Combined with the fact that I was in denial about how conducive its environment was to my academic improvement, and it was a tough sell. But my, did my marks improve, I could wander around in the middle of class if I needed to and ,most importantly, I learned how to advocate for myself. At the beginning of the semester at MRU, I visit the offices of my professors and let them know that I will likely be a few minutes late for most every class, but that I take my studies seriously, and their understanding would be appreciated. Self-Advocacy, and self-confidence in one’s ability is, in my opinion, the most powerful tool for any student who is coded. To the students here tonight, I say to you: the bureaucracy is daunting, but you are worth it. I grew up listening to Peter Gzowski’s gravelly voice on the radio, and to be associated with anything bearing his name is a privilege. Thank you.”

GUEST SPEAKER Ian Tyson Speaks to the Junior High On Thursday of the first week of school, the Junior High students were treated to a talk by Ian Tyson. Ian is an Ontario based motivational speaker. He does nearly 100 talks a year to students all across Canada and we were really lucky to be one of them. The title of Ian’s presentation was ‘The Hero Within’ and he encouraged students to practice random acts of kindness and to make the best of their Junior High years. The staff and students found him to be both entertaining and enlightening.

During the third week of September, elementary students attended Camp Kindle for two days. The camp was intended to give students an opportunity to get to know each other, make new friends and reconnect with old friends. Despite the cool temperatures and consistent rainfall, students had a great time participating in a wetland study, trees and forests investigation, archery, and field games activity. A memorable moment from Camp Kindle is when the teachers competed against the students in a game of "Name That Tune" with a musical dance-off thrown in! We are already looking forward to next year's orientation camp!

JUNIOR HIGH GIRLS VOLLEYBALL The Junior High girl’s volleyball season is off to a fantastic start. We have many veteran players, as well as a few new faces. This season, the 6/7/8 girls will be competing in one league and many of the Grade 7’s and 8’s are playing up in the Grade 9 competitive league, gaining much court time experience. There will be a number of home games throughout the season, so we hope that you can find time to come out and watch our very talented group of athletes. We have had our first tournament of the year already, where the girls have shown improvement and that they will be a force to be reckoned with.

SENIOR HIGH BOY S VOLLEYBALL The Senior Boys Volleyball program at Rundle Academy has grown by leaps and bounds since last season.

Led by our returning players, Cole Hendry, Dan Driscoll, Jake Kinzer, James Provost, Matthew Luca, Matthew Vician, Michael Abels, Riley Smith, Tayton Harbaruk and Zach Woolf, our team has already gotten off to a great start.

The new faces on our team, Alex Hartwell, Andrew Warren, Davis Avery, Jason Buckley, Joe Wright and Keanan Jurok, have been welcome additions and will help make the team successful in future seasons. The Senior Boys play three more host matches before the completion of the 2010 volleyball season, so come out and cheer them on in their chase for the 1A volleyball championship! See you on the court. Coach: Mr. Waterbury

RUNDLE COLLEGE FOOTBALL The Rundle Football Team ended last season with a 13-0 undefeated season capped off with a hard fought 23-14 victory over Ardrossan High School to win their first Tier IV Provincial Championship. Where do they go from here; obviously, it’s “reload & repeat.” The goal, once again, this season is to win the League and the Provincial Tier IV Championship. It is a tall order as everyone will be gunning for the Champs, but the team returns 18 players and 11 starters who are focused on making their goals a reality. To make the schedule even tougher, the Cobras have scheduled exhibition games against: Holy Trinity, Bishop Grandin and Foothills Composite (Tier 2 Provincial Champs) to test their meddle. The Cobras have started this season slowly and are presently 3-3, ranked 4th in the Province and 2nd in league. But if the last game against Foothills Composite is any indication, they are starting to round into form and are ready to take another serious run at the Provincials.
