Volume 35 - 12 November, 2013 Dear Parents and Students This Friday we celebrate, with a definite sense of pride, the graduation of the Class of 2013. I congratulate them on their most successful year. As seniors, they have led the school well; with enthusiasm and energy. They have applied themselves diligently to their studies and they have encouraged and supported each other generously and cheerfully. In this year of Justice they invited us to “see truth; feel gratitude and act justly”. They promoted the notion that justice begins with being true to oneself and in striving for right relationships with others. Justice, as represented by their ‘tree’ banner, grows from compassion, empathy and a grateful heart and this bears fruit when we act for others. I thank the Class of 2013 for their generous leadership and the legacy they leave us. I also thank them for their vibrancy, vitality and spirit. Girls, on behalf of the community I wish you every success for the future and encourage you to always ‘see the wondrous and welcome the impossible’. May God Bless you and keep you ever in the palm of his hands. You go forth now “to do good and to do it well” (Mary Ward). You Shall Above All Things You shall above all things be glad and young. For if you’re young, whatever life you wear it will become you; and if you are glad whatever’s living will yourself become . . . I’d rather learn from one bird how to sing than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance. e.e. cummings

May your grace enable us this day to dedicate ourselves to the cause of justice, freedom and peace; and give us the wisdom and strength to build a better world. Amen.

Crazy For You Update On Tuesday evening we held our initial cast read-through in the Hanrahan Theatre. This was our ‘first look’ at the cast of the 2014 musical as the students read through both acts of the musical in their respective roles. Ms Julianne Macpherson gave directions and guidance, while Dr Peter Morris played excerpts of the songs for the cast to sing along to. The read-through concluded with a ‘pizza banquet’ giving the cast time to mingle and build relationships important to the success of the production. Thanks to Ms Zoe Grills for her support and involvement at the read-through, and a big thanks to the students for their focus during the uninterrupted reading of both Acts 1 and 2. The pit orchestra and crew placements should be finalised in the next few days and this will conclude the placements for all students in our production. As students are assigned roles they will be given musical information booklets with consent forms. These should be returned to the College Reception as soon as possible. We now have a Facebook page as a way of communicating with the students, parents and staff of both Colleges. Like us at the following address: http://www.facebook.com/c4u.2014. We will still update information in the Music section of the Villanova College website, but the Facebook page will serve as a more immediate source for the latest news relating to our musical. Ben Langford - Director of Music

Millinery Services This year we will not be collecting hats for cleaning. If you wish to have your hat cleaned most dry cleaners offer this service.

Public Speaking Last week, ESU (English Speaking Union) held its Junior Competition at ESU House, Milton. Sophia Dabinett (Year 8) spoke on Monday night to To be an Australian! In her usual style, Sophia delivered her speech with great confidence and aplomb! On the following Wednesday evening, Lauren Michael, Priyanka Mirchandani and Kitty Lloyd, Alexandra White, Austen Whitewood and Aislind Bell (Year 9s) all delivered their speeches on The Networked You! I was immensely proud of each girl who represented Loreto magnificently. Each speech was varied and offered the audience humour, depth and insight. These girls have given up each lunch and many early mornings to prepare themselves and I commend them on their commitment, diligence and enthusiasm. Moving on to the finals on November 12 are Alexandra White, Austen Whitewood, Lauren Michael and Aislind Bell. There are twelve finalists all together and competition is tough! The speech title is English at its Best! We wish the girls all the best in the Finals. Mrs Rosemary O’Neill - Coordinator

P & F News P & F Parent Year Level Representatives Help generate community spirit by volunteering as a Year level rep! Each year, the P & F look to our community, for one or two parents of each Year level, to organise ‘get-togethers’. These are a wonderful way to meet other parents from your daughter’s Year. The events can be as simple or as elaborate as you wish! Some event ideas may include drinks and nibbles by the Loreto pool, at someone’s home, park or a restaurant or bar. Support a local café by organising a Sunday brunch. You may even like to combine a Year level get-together with another event, such as a College dance. If you are holding an event at a private home, we will provide you with a copy of the GUIDELINES FOR HOLDING FUNCTIONS AT PRIVATE RESIDENCES. Advertising your events is as simple as placing an ‘advert’ in the weekly Loreto newsletter. You can put together your own advert or we can help you. We do ask that you keep the details to a half A4 page and remember to include a coupon. For further details please complete the attached form with this newsletter or contact Trish Willing, 3394 9999 email: willingp@loreto.qld.edu.au

You are able to check which email addresses you have provided to us by logging into Parent Lounge via the Loreto College website www.loreto.qld.edu.au and going to the ‘Update Parent Details’ menu option in the top toolbar as below, once you are logged in. Alternatively you can contact the College directly to have changes made.

Student Laptop Program 2014 The student laptop program continues into 2014 with Year 8, 10 and 11 students carrying their laptop over from this year. Present Year 9 Students will receive their new laptop on February 5 so will need to use their current laptop in the first week of school in 2014. Specific information for Year 9 parents about the changeover process will be emailed shortly. Before the end of the year all students need to ensure that they have a backup of any work that they wish to keep on a separate portable hard drive, not just the hard drive of their laptop. All of the individual student College network drives (I:) and student common drives will be wiped clean in preparation for the start of the school year in 2014. We expect that students take good care of their laptops over the holiday period ensuring their security at all times so that they have a seamless start to the new school year. We would recommend that the laptop not be taken away if you go away on holidays but rather left in a safe and secure location at home. Any issue (damage or faults) with a student laptop needs to be brought to the attention of the ICT Help Desk before school finishes for the year. The ICT Help Desk is closed during the summer holiday break with IT staff undertaking regular network and system maintenance, installations and repairs. In an emergency situation there will be staff here at the College except for the two week period around Christmas. Mr Gavin Swanson - Deputy Principal - ICT

Sports Department Basketball Results from Round 8: Open A were defeated by Mt Alvernia 29 to 24 Loreto had previously beaten this team but unfortunately could not secure a win in the final round. Taili Beausang, Amber Schmidt and Jemima Moore lead the way in scoring. The match was very close throughout with Mt Alvernia just scoring three quick baskets in the final two minutes of the match. Open B were defeated by All Hallows’ 23 to 15 This was a physical encounter and Loreto struggled to maintain ball security with poor passing, particularly on inbound throws. Olivia Mastry was strong with shots from the floor and Julia Edwards lead the way in defence. Loreto fought hard but could not close the gap that All Hallow’s created early in the match. Intermediate A Gold (10’s) defeated Our Lady’s College 27 to 5 Loreto applied strong pressure in defence which caused easy turnovers. Isobella Scott was the backbone of the Loreto defence. Extra passes made scoring opportunities easier and the team really clicked in their final match. Georgia Garrett, Julia Logan and Georgia Johnson were excellent in attack. Intermediate A Blue (9’s) were defeated by All hallows’ 46 to 22 In the grand final match Loreto were slighty outclassed by All Hallow’s. Zoe Sever had an outstanding game in defence marking the best player on the court. Jessica Galpin, Tayla Jansen and Laura Schenk were also strong in attack. A great season and all players should be proud of their achievements. Junior A defeated Mt St Michael’s 29 to 18 What a great way to finish the season! Loreto played excellent basketball to secure the very first win. Georgia Leech, Lauren O’Neill and Madeleine Miller had very strong games. Everything seemed to gel in the final match and it was a great reward for persistence and hard work at training. Well done! Final places for the 2013 season as follows: Open A

= 6th

Open B

= 4th

Intermediate A Gold (10’s) = 5th Intermediate A Blue (9’s) = 2nd Junior A = 5th Finally, I would like to thank the coaches for their dedication and commitment and the knowledge they have given to all players throughout the season. We say a big thank you to Samuel Minken (Open A), Margaux Page (Open B), Dean Wayne (Intermediate A Gold), Paula Daniels (Intermediate A Blue) and Isabella Mammone (JuniorA). I would also like to thank all the players for their commitment to basketball this season and for the excellent manner in which they have represented Loreto during the eight weeks of competitive basketball. Our overall results indicate that we have good strength coming through in the younger grades and we need to continue to build upon this development in the future. The season would also not have been as successful without the help of Mrs Angela Waite and Mrs Di Buckley who have helped with home matches and supported me in the overall running of the season. To all parents who have assisted with scoring throughout the season on home benches, a very big thank you! Matches cannot run smoothly without your presence. Mrs Jane Wilkinson and Mrs Meg Stevens have been crucial behind the scenes in overall planning .To Taili Beausang, as Basketball Captain for 2013, thank you for all your assistance throughout this season and your commitment to Loreto basketball for the past five years. It is with great enthusiasm that I look forward to the 2014 season!

Bulletins/Notices Attention Year 8 and Year 10 Parents A reminder that 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.
