Volume 28 - 10 September, 2013 Dear Parents and Students     POPE FRANCIS:  This week Pope Francis urged world leaders at the G20 summit in St Petersburg to abandon  “the fu le pursuit of a military solu on.”  During his Angelus Blessing last Sunday he also reminded us that “it  is never the use of violence that leads to peace.”  Later he “tweeted”:  “War never again!  Never again war!”  I  offer this prayer (from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) for the People of Syria and for Peace.     

A Prayer for the People of Syria    God of Compassion,  Hear the cries of the people of Syria,  Bring healing to those suffering from the violence,  Bring comfort to those mourning the dead,  Strengthen Syria’s neighbours in their care and welcome for refugees,  Convert the hearts of those who have taken up arms,  And protect those commi ed to peace.    God of Hope,  Inspire leaders to choose peace over violence and to seek reconcilia on with enemies,  Inspire the Church around the world with compassion for the people of Syria,  And give us hope for a future of peace built on jus ce for all.    We ask this through Jesus Christ,  Prince of Peace and Light of the World,  Amen. 

     

                 

P & F NEWS I wish to congratulate and thank the following Parents who have kindly accepted roles on the P&F Execu ve for 2014.    President:      David Causer (Lauren Year 11 – 2104)  Vice‐President:   Susan Milward (Kate Year 12 – 2014)  Vice President:  Meg Norris (Julia Year 12 – 2014)  Secretary:     Garry West (Jacqueline Year 12 – 2104 & Bridget Year 10 – 2014)  Treasurer:     Shaun Cochran (Courtney Year 11 – 2014 & Rhiannon Year 9 2014)   

I offer my sincere and hear elt thanks to outgoing execu ve members, John Welch, Mary Favios and Libby Oliver each of whom has  given  generous  and  commi ed  service  and  leadership.    Through  their  collec ve  efforts  they  have  introduced  significant  and            important improvements to the campus facili es and they have fostered a genuine sense of community and welcome.  I thank them  for their energy, enthusiasm, ideas and support but most of all I thank them for their joy and goodness.   

“EDUCATING FOR THE UNKNOWN” In last  week’s  QCS  test  the  Year  12  students  were  given  s mulus  material  for  their  “Wri ng  Task”  rela ng  to  ‘Things  Unknown’  about which they were invited to create a wri en response.  I couldn’t help but think how relevant this topic is for them as learners  and for us as educators.

ZxÉzÜtÑ{ç axãá Geography in Action- Acting on Climate Change As part of the unit “Living with Climate Change”, the Year 12 Geography class have been investigating ways to respond to the concerning issue of global warming. They recently conducted a class debate on the topic “That solar panels should be made compulsory for all Australian homes and businesses”. The teams were captained by two very experienced debaters in our class, Samantha Bull (Affirmative) and Gabrielle Kassulke (Negative). We were also very fortunate to have Mr McKinlay adjudicate the debate and award the affirmative side the overall winners of what was both a very entertaining as well as informative debate. We thank Mr McKinlay very much for giving his time to help us out here. The Geography class were also privileged to have past student Brigid King ( 2012) come and talk on behalf of the Australian Youth Climate Coalition ( AYCC) about what actions they as young decision makers of the future can do, in response to this issue. She gave an interesting presentation and is clearly passionate about working towards a better future for all. We thank Brigid very much for making time to see us in her busy schedule.

_tÇzâtzx WxÑtÜàÅxÇà axãá As always, the Languages Department has been very busy this term. Here’s a little update of what is happening in each of our Languages:

German Year 10 and Year 11 students are getting very excited about their fast approaching trip to Germany – only 80 days until we fly! Many of the girls have made the most of the Australian winter sales and bought their coats and boots, ready for a cold winter in Germany! We have our final trip meeting next term, on Tuesday 22 October at 7pm in 402, to receive our final itinerary and departing instructions. How exciting!

Japanese Students of Japanese have recently had the opportunity to attend a meeting regarding our trip to Japan in July 2014. Deposits from interested students were due on Friday, so exact numbers will soon be finalised. Congratulations to those girls who will be accompanying Hada Sensei and Mrs Hansen to Japan next year! What a wonderful opportunity!

French We welcome Madame Nat Dawes as senior and junior French teacher for the next year while Miss Tilly is on maternity leave. We hope you enjoy your time here at Loreto as much as the students will enjoy having you here. This term, Year 10 students have been studying a unit on French food, including topics such as grocery shopping, cooking and ordering in a restaurant. The girls have collaboratively produced a beautiful Year 10 French Recipe book, featuring recipes in both French and English. They have also had the opportunity to make French style Chocolate Mousse in the Home Economics rooms here at school. Many thanks to Mrs Marg Duncan who assisted greatly in this project - the girls have reported that their mousse was delicious! Amy Stewart - Acting Languages Coordinator

`âá|v axãá Grigoryan Nights Early in Term 4, Guitar Ensemble One and Two will perform two concerts with renowned classical guitarists, the Grigoryan Brothers. The concerts will be hosted by Villanova College at the Augustine Centre on the nights of Thursday 24 October and Friday 25 October and will feature performances by Leonard and Slava Grigoryan, who captivated audiences and inspired a whole generation of Loreto guitarists when they came to Villa for a similar event four years ago. Before the brothers perform, the first half of the concerts will also include performances by each school’s guitar ensembles, combined performances featuring the Grigoryan Brothers, and a guest spot from the Aurora Guitar Ensemble. Tickets for the these concerts are now on sale (both nights will be exactly the same) and are available exclusively through the Trybooking website (http://www.trybooking.com/61384). Prices are $25 for adults and $15 for school students. Performing students will not need to purchase tickets, as they have had seats reserved for them on the Thursday night performance, and will be able to watch the 2nd half of the Friday night concert via video-link in the Playhouse. You will also be able to pre-order commemorative concert DVDs on the trybooking website for $20/each if you wish. To help prepare the Guitar Ensembles for these special performances, there will be a day long rehearsal on Monday 21 October (student free day) held at the Augustine Centre – more details to follow soon.

Congratulations To Holly Davey and Leah Condoleon, Year 8, who competed in the Clarinet And Sax Society Competition over the weekend. Both girls played well and Leah received a Highly Commended certificate. Well done!

Extra Performance Opportunities for Singers Youth Performing Arts Queensland (YPAQ) Is a not for profit youth theatre organization that is heavily involved in the annual pageantry at the Myer Queens St Mall Christmas Parade and Pantomime (17th to 24th December 2013) and also the Christmas Concert in Albert Park accompanied by the Brisbane Philharmonic Band (8th December, 2013). YPAQ is looking for students who may wish to perform at these events – more information is available from the Music Office for interested students. Brisbane Catholic Education Is looking for students to participate in a combined Catholic schools choir to perform during the day on Friday 11 October for the launch of a new Religious Education Curriculum. The choir will be led by Mr Anthony Young, an absolute expert in choral teaching and conducting, will rehearse once on Wednesday 9 October from 3:30 to 5:30 pm at St Laurence’s College, and the performance will be held in the Grand Chelsea Ballroom of the Mercure Hotel. It should be an inspiring performance opportunity! For more information, see Mr Langford asap.

Term 4 Concert Dates 

Live & Wired Music Festival will be held on Sunday 20 October from 4pm to 7pm on the Deshon Oval. The following groups will be performing: Sorelle, Jazz Ensemble, Exit Stage Left, The Moose, Villanova Jazz Band and Big Band, with a special guest appearance by the Craig Martin Swing Band.



Graduation Mass for our current Year 12s will be held on Friday 15 November (performers: Senior Choir, Junior Choir, selected instrumentalists).

Rehearsals during Exams As always, the Music Department will be cancelling many rehearsals during the exam block to allow students to prepare for their various assessments. Please take careful note of the attached Rehearsal Schedule for the remainder of Term 3. Where rehearsals have not been cancelled, it is expected that all students do attend. Thank you.

Ensemble Auditions Participation in advanced ensembles provides extension for students who are already members of the appropriate core, or supporting, groups. However, the College understands that students have a great many time commitments, especially when in the senior years, and that they may not be able to commit to multiple music groups. In this case, these students should expect to commit to their core group and may not have time to be in (many) extension groups. During the Audition process, extension ensembles frequently have extra set work that students are required to learn. As the advanced groups can be highly selective, the set work helps clearly differentiate performance standards. Additionally, students in these ensembles are expected to be able to independently and proficiently learn their parts outside of rehearsal time. Presenting set excerpts at the Audition allows conductors to judge which students are capable and willing to put in this extra effort. Ben Langford - Director of Music

Teams playing at Loreto are to go to Homeroom and arrive and change in the MWC at 3.30pm. Nyree Wood, Basketball Coordinator

Results: Round 1 Open A were defeated by Mt St Michael’s 44 to 32 Loreto played well and had the match under control, but late in the first quarter Mt St Michael’s scored 10 points very quickly. This point scoring blitz really cost Loreto the match, as they were never able to peg back the score and put pressure on their opposition. Issy Mowen and Taili Beausang scored 10 points each, while Amber Schmidt was also dominant. Open B defeated St John Fisher 34 to 10 A fantastic start to the season by all players. Loreto dominated the match from the onset and were clearly the stronger team in all areas. Darcy-Rae McCowan played an exceptional first match, displayed strong defence, shutting down numerous opponents. Thanks to Ashleigh DaSilva for scoring this week. Intermediate A Blue(9’s) defeated Intermediate A Gold(10’s) In an all Loreto encounter the Year 9 team were determined to score a victory over their older rivals. Sophie Freedman and Stefanie Gjokmarkovic did a fantastic job at rebounding for the 9’s, while Zoe Sever, Tayla Jansen and Vicky Flores were elusive in attack. The best players for the 10’s were Stephanie Samios, Lucy Nielson and Julia Logan. Defence, court transition and shooting needs to improve next match for the 10’s. A great game by both teams but the 9’s were too strong on the day, being more accurate with lay ups and stronger rebounding. Junior A were defeated by Lourdes Hill 30 to 25 This was a very close match and Loreto should be pleased with their first performance for the season. Eliza Greene scored 7 points and was dominant in bringing the ball down the court. Grace Dwyer and Georgia Brown were also prominent in attack. There are many positives to be taken from this first match as the majority of Loreto girls had not played any basketball previously. Well done, girls!

Great first game of the season. The team held the ball for six touches for numerous sets and rucked well. Excellent touchdown scored by Kate O’Sullivan. Intermediate C2 v LHC (1)

Passing skills were executed well in this opening match. Our defence needs to be more cohesive and work more quickly around the attacking ruck players. Additionally, productive talk in defence would assist everyone on the team. Great first game! Intermediate D v Mt Alvernia

Lost 2 - 4

Strong attack from the team but overall defence let us down. Great running games from Imogen Day, Jazmin Baker and Connie Xynias. Junior A v LHC

Won 4 - 0

A great opening game with the players maintaining possession to ruck well for sets of six. Defensively, all players must talk, count the opposition players and move forward as one unit. A wonderful opening game! Junior B v MMC

Lost 0 - 5

All players tried their best and certainly improved in the second half in this opening round game. The team needs to focus on executing their rucking patterns as practised. Top game from Rose Owen whose forward momentum got the team moving.

If these are not collected by the end of term, it will be assumed that you no longer require these items and arrangements will be made for leftover items to be sold and funds donated to the P&F. We can no longer sell the “old” style blazers so if you would like us to, we can remove the pockets and send the blazers onto SVDP who issue these to the needy or homeless. If you have a blazer in the uniform shop can you let me know if you are happy with these arrangements. Current families who wish to order blazers have until the end of term to have their daughters fitted. Other arrangements will be made for new 2014 families to attend a special fitting day (dates to be finalised). More information will be available once we have the sustainable school shop up and running. The uniform shop still has a reasonable supply of uniforms so if you are looking for any uniforms, now may be a good time to buy! Many thanks for all your support of the second hand uniform shop.

Upon completion of each lap, students will be asked to carry two 2 litre bottles of water around a loop of the oval before being given a spirit token to be added to their House Spirit Vase. At this point, students will take to the track again. The more laps completed, the more spirit tokens the houses will gain. Spirit points will be awarded to the winning house. Prizes will be awarded to the best dressed ‘Superhero”! Important information: 

All students are required to bring a gold coin. This is for the privilege of participation and dressing up.

There is to be no running.

There will be an alternative course arranged for students who are unable to complete the track. These students are to see Mrs Gore early next week or on the morning of the Walkathon.

When the lunch hour finishes at 2.15pm, there will be time for clean-up of Homerooms and grounds and a final Assembly for awarding prizes and singing the Holiday Hymn. School will finish at the normal time of 3.20pm.

The tuckshop will be open at Morning Tea and Lunch.

The Women Walk for Water will focus on raising funds for Care Australia’s ‘Give Water for Life’ Appeal. In the last year, the appeal has helped more than 27 million people throughout the world to implement sustainable water practices. It has released women and girls from the time consuming task of collecting water and this time can now be spent attending school and gaining a valuable education. An Everyday Hero page has been set up and we would like to encourage donations in support of our students’ efforts on the day.
