Volume 18 - 11 June, 2013 Dear Parents and Students  Igna us offers us a li le tool, a five step prayer pa ern known as the “Examen”, to help us on our way each day.   

“A er business, I go to find myself in God.” (Mary Ward) 

Step 1:  


Step 2:  

     Searching for Light:

I pause to become a uned to all that I have received in my life today …...           the gi  of life itself …... the wonder of each breath …...  I  ask for what I long…… to be the best that I can… making the                                           most of my gi s…... 

Step 3:

   Examina on:  

How have  I  responded  to  God  today?......  Have  I  gathered  God’s  gi s  and  ignored  the         Giver?......  What barriers within me prevent me from being all that I would desire to be? 

Step 4:

      Contri on:  

Is there something in my day that created my anxiety, unease, pain, uncertainty?......    I share these worries with my God. 

Step 5:


I look forward with hope for tomorrow and gra tude for the gi s and              learning of today.

`âá|v axãá Loreto Music Festival All students who have requested accompaniment by the official Festival Accompanist, please find the rehearsal schedule attached to this newsletter. If for some reason you cannot make your timeslot, or your name has been left off the list, please see Mr Langford or Mrs Carr in the Music Office urgently.

Catholic Colleges Music Festival – IMPORTANT DATE CLAIMER All parents of students in Loreto Ensembles please take careful note of the QCMF performance schedule published in this newsletter. Virtually all Loreto ensembles will be performing at this festival at some stage between Thursday 15 August and Sunday 18 August and attendance is expected.

Congratulations To all the Loreto students who have been selected to participate in the State Honours Ensemble Program for 2013. This well respected event brings together some of the finest young musicians in Queensland secondary schools. Positions are awarded based on nominations by school music teachers, with preference given to advanced students and those in older year levels. In addition to the thirteen students who have been accepted, we also have several girls on the reserve list. SHEP participants are Madeline Blanchfield, Georgia Christie, Ellen Cunningham, Lauren Gleed, Isabella Kirkman, Erin Leask, Fiona McMahon, Alice Meimaris, Kate Milward, Lucy Nielson, Nicole Pinto, Melissa Roberts, Austen Whitewood.

Instrument Security Could parents please ensure that their daughters instrument cases are named? This is particularly important with Guitars as most students have identical cases which causes frequent confusion. The easiest method is to use a plastic key/luggage tag attached to the zipper pull or an exterior strap on the case.

Music Tour Payment Parents of students who are attending the Music Tour in July are reminded that the balance payment of $700 was actually due last week. Please either phone Lesley Bongaarts win the College Office (3394 9903) with credit card details or send a cheque to the school urgently.

Recording Studio Over the past week all students in the Year 10 Music Classes have professionally recorded their original Pop/Rock compositions at Ghostgum Studios. It has been a fantastic experience for the girls and a real look inside the music industry! Thanks to Mrs Nielson and Ms Cohen for their work in helping the girls prepare and also accompanying the excursion groups.

Music Support Group All interested parents are invited to attend the Music Support Group meeting tomorrow night Wednesday 11 June, 7:30 pm in the Ben Langford - Director of Music Gonzaga Barry Building.

fv|xÇvx axãá Term Two is quickly drawing to a close. It has been a very eventful time in the Science Department with our students covering an amazingly broad range of topics under the fantastic tutelage of our teaching and laboratory staff. We had a very successful field trip to North Stradbroke Island with the Year 11 Biology girls – the weather was great and some very useful quantitative data was collected. Some exciting experimental work was done in the labs. The Year 11 Chemistry cohort carried out detailed analysis of water samples from around Brisbane to determine if the water types were suitable for their intended use, such as for drinking or swimming in. Some very surprising results were obtained! The Year 12 Physics class finalised some highly interesting and innovative extended experimental investigations. The topic was completely up to the girls, so a great variety of work was done. Model bridges were built and structurally load tested, electric motors were constructed and analysed for power output and torque, induction transformers were tested for efficiency and the resistive and thermodynamic properties of different electric conductors were investigated. Some of the class’s creations are presented here.

The Year 8 Junior Science classes had their first taste (figuratively speaking!) of chemistry, our Year 9s learned about tectonic theory and earthquakes while our Year 10s delved into how molecular and ionic compounds react chemically. The Year 12 Biology cohort have covered the complex realm of biochemistry, cell biology and human physiology. Our tenacious Year 12 Chemistry girls have just wrapped up what is undoubtedly the most challenging area of the course – dynamic chemical equilibrium. I commend them on the determined way they have negotiated this topic under the astute guidance of their teachers.

The Science Experience Is a three or four day hands on science activities program conducted by UQ, Griffith and QUT in late 2013/early 2014. It is open to students who are currently in Year 9 and 10. The program is designed to help students to make decisions about senior secondary and tertiary studies if they have an interest in the sciences. It is also a great opportunity to gain an insight into Uni life and meet like-minded students from all over Australia. If your daughter is interested, she can visit the website at: or see me at the College.

Year 11 Physics Dreamworld Excursion As part of the senior Physics Program, students in Year 11 will be visiting the Dreamworld theme park at Coomera on Monday 22nd July (early next term) to conduct experiments and apply what they have been studying in Kinematics, Dynamics and Mechanics to the features of the theme park. The data yielded from this outing and the concepts learned will contribute towards an extended response task for assessment. The cost for this excursion is covered within the fee structure of the school and so the only money that the students will need is for lunch, morning tea and afternoon tea, plus any spending money you deem appropriate. Details are as follows: 

After morning homeroom, students are to go immediately to the bus stop at the front of the College for a roll check


9.00 am students board bus and depart for Dreamworld.


2.15 pm students board bus and depart Dreamworld to return to Loreto in time for the normal end of the school day.

The students should: 

Wear neat, comfortable and appropriate clothing - especially sensible enclosed footwear, sunglasses, a hat and sunscreen


Bring a folder, paper, calculator, ruler and writing implements

Soccer Results - Round 5 Mt St Michael's vs Loreto Open A 1 - 2 Our loss in Round 3 required us to rethink our strategies and to find a new formation against another strong opposition. Starting with our Captain Madi Andrews as centre mid and Emma Ball as centre forward was the first step, followed by the swap of Shannon O'Connor with Amerisa Xynias as centre defender. Amerisa did a very good job covering the very strong St Michael's striker. After fifteen minutes Carla Caputo as striker and Caitlin Orr as midfielder became more involved in the game which created numerous great scoring opportunities. Sam Papas, our goal keeper, did some outstanding saves and was player of the match. It was thanks to her excellent goal keeper abilities that we won the game. We started the second half with a nil - nil tie however, after five minutes Carla scored from a very short distance, followed shortly afterwards by the second goal, scored by Martia George. Stephanie Bellos had a few chances to increase our lead but luck eluded her in front of the goal. Talented Taili Beausang was outstanding in defence and gave the St Michael's best player, their left wing, no chance to get even close to score. A free kick, bouncing back from the goal post to the feet of one the opposition's attackers allowed them to score four minutes before the end of the game but we held out to celebrate a well-deserved victory. Congratulations to the whole team for an excellent performance. Richard Hamernik - Coach Brigidine vs Loreto 0 - 0 The Junior C girls for the first time didn't concede a goal which shows they are improving defensively. The Junior C soccer girls all gave 100% effort and were unlucky not to score a goal with the chances they created. Well done! Luke Duncan - Coach

Hockey This Week’s Draw - Round 5 All games today have been cancelled due to wet weather.

Hockey Results - Round 4 Open A – Had a Bye OPEN B A complacent Loreto B team took the field against Brigidine for the second time in the competition. The team expected the opposition to roll over as was the case in the previous game. Wild shots on goal and fumble feet cost Loreto at least four to five goals in the first half, where the team only managed to lead at half time one goal to nil. The second half saw a return to basic form with the team running away with the ball and scoring a further seven unanswered goals for an 8 - Nil victory. Well done! Ian Honour - Coach Congratulations to the Open B (all Year 8 team) on their third successive win for the season. They are showing they are unstoppable with convincing wins 9 – 0, 4 –1 and 8 – 0. Good luck next week against Mt St Michael’s B. Alan Lane-Richardson - Hockey Coordinator

Netball IMPORTANT REMINDER: There will be netball training next week but there are no BSGSA games. All training will commence on Tuesday 16 July and games on the first week in Term 3 on 17 July. Please Note: There will be no training for Year 10 B and C teams on Friday morning 21 June due to the Athletics Carnival.

This Week’s Draw: All games today have been cancelled due to wet weather. Netball Results 5 June OPEN A - Were defeated by Lourdes Hill 26 - 16 We have had some tough competition for our first three rounds of the season; which will stand us in good stead for the second half of the season. I am pleased to report that the girls had a great game on Wednesday, despite going down to a strong opposition. Our centre court work was strong and delivered plenty of possession to the circle. Lourdes Hill’s defenders were a talented combination who made it very difficult for our shooters to finish off. Sam Firrell did a particularly good job of contesting for the ball. Melissa Roberts took some impressive defensive rebounds. As a team, the girls played with a determination that saw us build in momentum to win the last quarter. Coach - Mrs Meg Logan OPEN B - Defeated Mary McKillop College and by showing their dominance on court, the girls dictated the entire game playing with structure and patience. The entire defensive effort of the team really put the pressure on their opponents who couldn't keep up, allowing Loreto to work the ball down into the shooters. Special mention to Chiara and Abbey for their accuracy and confidence in the circle. Great work girls! Coach - Larissa Hughes OPEN C - Defeated Mt St Michaels with a 23 – 11 win. All the girls played well. Keep up the good work. Coach - Karen Holaham OPEN D - The girls played a great game against San Sisto and as a result came away with a winning score of 35 – 10. Both of our shooters, Hannah Dalton and Rebecca Gray, were very accurate and worked well together. Jacqueline West played well in defence. Awesome work girls, very proud of you all. Coach - Brittany Holaham INTERMEDIATE A - Were in much better form this week and had a 23 -18 win against Mt Alvernia. Determination and a desire to improve on last week’s game certainly paid off. Hopefully this will carry through to the rest of their games, with more wins. Coach - Magdaleine Ryan INTERMEDIATE B - The girls notched their first victory of the season, defeating San Sisto College 39 – 9. Defence was superb at each end of the court and our shooters proved too strong in the attacking circle, making every opportunity count. Special mention to Megan Laycock and Sarah O'Shea for doing an excellent job as a replacement shooter and circle defender. Coach - Bridget O’Connor INTERMEDIATE C - With two players missing, the girls tried their best to break Lourdes Hill’s very accurate shooting and play down the court. Unfortunately it was our first loss of the season, and the team was defeated 32 - 9. The game was instrumental in highlighting some weaknesses, which now known, are easily able to be improved upon by the end of season. A special mention should be extended to the consistent efforts Tiana showed in the game. Hopefully the next one is a win. Coach - Ashleigh O’Connor INTERMEDIATE D – Defeated Our Lady’s very comfortably against this week, winning 60 - 5. The girls are continuing to improve and are becoming extremely successful players. All girls played very well in their respective positions, with a couple of girls having to play a new position due to injuries. I am very impressed with their determination and teamwork! I am looking forward to seeing what else they can achieve for the remainder of the 2013 season. Coach - Emma Macleod INTERMEDIATE E - Defeated Lourdes Hill 21 - 16. After a slow start to the game the girls pulled together in the last quarter for a convincing win. It was pleasing to see the improvement from last week with strong drives and re-offers from all players. Well done girls and good luck for next week! Coach - Briony Logan INTERMEDIATE F (1) - Defeated Lourdes Hill 26 -19. A good effort by all girls with some outstanding defensive play from Jamie and Isabella. Well done! Coach - Kate Mullens INTERMEDIATE F (2) - The girls worked hard again this week, defeating Mt Alvernia. The attacking players worked hard to keep a nice flow down the court throughout most of the game. Farren Buckley was an excellent example, who was not only always there for the attackers but also came up with many intercepts in defence. Overall fabulous work girls, keep it up! Coach - Hannah Fowler JUNIOR A - While the girls were beaten by some exceptionally talented netballers in the Brigidine side, the team showed great determination, maintaining their composure and playing very well in some tough circumstances. Special thanks to Emily Lowe for stepping up and doing a great job umpiring for our team. Coach - Lyn Dixon

JUNIOR B - The accomplishment of winning and the excitement and celebrations that followed last week’s game allowed the girls to go into Round 3 with confidence and determination. This was evident right from the start, with an 8 - 2 lead at the end of the first quarter. The girls stayed strong and united as a team and despite a slow third quarter, they were able to stay composed and finish the game off well. I was pleased with the effort of every girl this week with special mention going to Gabby Miotti and Brooke Fletcher whose attack play encompassed the skills developed in training. Overall a fantastic game by the girls with demonstrations of improvement throughout the court. Coach - Clare Gill JUNIOR C – Had a difficult match this week, and were defeated by Lourdes Hill. Terrific work in the shooting circle by Kate Pertnikovs, Despina Grespos and Maggie Healy, and brilliant defence by Georgia Hocking. Coach - Stephanie Esprester JUNIOR D – Had a great success and defeated St Rita’s by a whopping 21 - 2. All girls displayed great improvement from the beginning of the season, showing outstanding defence all the way down the court, as well as excellent feeds into the circle to the shooters. Outstanding efforts were made by Rachael and Victoria who were both superstars playing down both ends of the court. Another special mention to Caitlin for showing versatility and making an excellent defence player. Keep it up girls. Coaches - Sarah Pettiford and Jacqui Gold

All students are expected to attend to support their house and participate in events. Magazines, I pods and the like are NOT permitted. Students are to wear correct school sports uniform to and from school, including normal sports runners and cap and can change into house colours once they arrive at school.

Students who are unable to participate for medical reasons are to see Ms Carty with a note prior to the carnival date and will be issued with a job on the day. There will be limited canteen facilities but it is strongly advised that each student brings her own lunch. Students should ensure they have a Loreto Sports hat, sunscreen and water bottle.

The survey will only take around 30-45 minutes to complete. Your involvement will help the field to learn more about the effects of different work circumstances and settings on children and families. Your participation will also assist in developing ways to properly support working parents in the future. Are you a working parent? Do you have a child aged between 2 and 12 years? Are you willing to provide 30-45 minutes of your time? For further information and to take part in the survey, please visit: All participating parents will be eligible to enter a draw to win 1 of 10 $100 Coles/Myer gift cards!

Does your child suffer asthma or eczema? Every day, thousands of Australian children suffer the effects of asthma and eczema and families struggle with illness management and children’s behavioural and emotional adjustment. Positive Parenting for Healthy Living is an adaptation of the successful Triple P- Positive Parenting Program offering practical ideas and support for parents of children suffering asthma or eczema. This innovative group program is designed to help parents manage their child’s illness, assist children in coping with their illness and emotions, and prevent and manage difficult child behaviour. Over the next few months and for a limited time only, parents of 3 - 10 year old children suffering asthma or eczema are able to access Positive Parenting for Healthy Living Triple P as part of a University of Queensland research project. Parents will be able to attend the program free of charge, and will be asked to complete 3 sets of assessment measures (questionnaire, symptom diary, and family observation) over a 6 month period, as part of the study.

Attention Year 8 and Year 10 Parents Brisbane City Council, Queensland Health and Queensland University of Technology researchers are conducting an online survey in conjunction with the school-based vaccination program in 2013. While all vaccines on the National Schedule have an excellent safety profile and reactions following immunisation are reported by health professionals to Queensland Health to ensure ongoing safety, relatively few reports come from parents and young people. This survey hopes to gain parents’ perspectives on reactions experienced by students after being vaccinated and also hopes to identify any differences between reactions experienced by boys and those by girls. This will enable Queensland Health to tailor the information given to parents prior to the school-based vaccination clinics. If you would like to participate in the survey, or would like further information, please go to the following web address: If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Damian Gray, Public Health Nurse, Metro North Public Health Unit on (07) 3142 1800.

The Australian Childhood Vision Impairment Register The Australian Childhood Vision Impairment Register is hosted by the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children and is the first national register of children in Australia with vision impairment. The Register has been collecting data since 2009, and this data is providing important information about the types of eye disease and vision disorders children have and the support they need. The data is also used by service providers and researchers. Data is stored securely and no child can be identified in any way when the data is released. How can families register their child? Families are invited to register their child (aged 0-18 years) if they have vision impairment in both eyes which has been diagnosed by an eye specialist or ophthalmologist. Registration can be done by contacting Register staff on (02) 9872 0303, or by visiting the VI Family Network website at: This website also contains low vision resources and events that families might find helpful.

The VI Family Network This is the website which supports the Australian Childhood Vision Impairment Register. Families can use the website to complete online registration. The website also provides information on eyes and vision; family support; education and related issues; braille and low vision aids; technology supporting vision impairment; newsletters from Australian low vision agencies and support groups, useful websites; and news and events that might interest families across Australia. Australia. The website also hosts a parent forum where families can meet and chat with one another, share their stories and get advice. As the Australian Childhood Vision Impairment Register grows the understanding of Australian childhood vision impairment becomes more accurate, accurate, and hopefully gives these children and their families a voice.
