Volume 14 - 13 May, 2014 Dear Parents & Students This is a busy week for us as we make plans and preparations for MISSION DAY, which takes place this FRIDAY. It is pleasing and rewarding to see and feel the excitement in the lead up to this important and special day. In anticipation I wish to thank the students for their ready willingness to participate and to contribute so generously in such positive and hopeful ways. This event builds leadership skills and promotes community, caring and compassion. We give thanks for this opportunity to give something more of ourselves towards a better life for others. Together we pray. We dare to imagine a world where hunger has no chance to show its face. We dare to dream of a world where war and terror are afraid to leave their mark. We long to believe in a world of hope unchained and lives unfettered. We dare to share in the creation of a world where your people break free. Dare we open our minds to difference? Dare we open our lives to change? Your kingdom come, O God. Your will be done. Amen. CONGRATULATIONS 

Language Department News German Thank you to Greta Wilcox and the Multicultural Council for a wonderful German Day. The cake stall and Brezeln at Morning Tea were a huge success. Congratulations to Abbey Martin who won the “Guess the number of Gummibears in the jar” contest. Many students got into the spirit of the day and enjoyed dressing up in their best German accessories. The senior German students concluded the day with a lovely dinner at the German Club in Brisbane. The German Club is the oldest club in Queensland (established 1883) and provides a rich history of Germans in Brisbane. Our thanks to Vice-President of the club, Mario, who gave our girls a tour of the club and some very interesting history! The dinner gave our Year 11 and 12 German students a taste of some authentic German food and culture.

French Travelling students and their parents are reminded that the next French Trip meeting will be held on Monday 26 May at 7pm in room 402. We look forward to seeing you all there. Japanese We now have host families for all our visiting Japanese students and are eagerly awaiting their arrival on Wednesday 23 July. But first, our students will have the amazing opportunity to travel to Japan in just 50 days time. Travelling students and their parents are reminded that the compulsory final meeting will be held on Wednesday 4 June at 7pm in room 403. We hope to see you all there. LOTE WEEK Preparations are well underway for the 2014 LOTE Week which will be held in the last week of this term; the week beginning 23 June. LOTE week is a week dedicated to Languages Other Than English and provides students with the opportunity to enhance their language studies at lunch, after school and outside school. Throughout the week there will be information sessions about continuing language studies at university, travelling overseas, language immersion programs and careers in languages. There will also be a French, German and Japanese movie afternoon and special language activities at lunch. We look forward to seeing many language students participating in these events and more information will follow in the next few weeks. Amy Stewart - Acting Languages Coordinator

Science News Term Two is promising to be an eventful and exciting time in the Science Department. Year 8 classes are delving into atoms and molecules; our Year 9s are covering geology and electricity; while the Year 10s are looking at genetics and evolution. The Year 11 Physics class will be working towards their excursion later on in the year by focussing on dynamics and energy changes. Their counterparts in Year 12 begin the term studying electromagnetism and will then design and conduct their own extended experimental project on a topic of their choosing. The Year 11 Chemistry cohort will be conducting analytical laboratory work on water quality, while the Year 12 chemists are busy planning solubility equilibrium experiments. Our four Year 12 Biology classes will be studying how organisms respond to their environment with a particular focus on cell biology and human physiology. On Thursday 22 May all Year 11 Biology students will be going to North Stradbroke Island for a Field Trip which forms an important part of their course and data collected contributes to a summative assessment item. The students will be studying Sand Dune Ecosystems, the Biology of Brown Lake as well as the Mangroves at Myora Springs. To maximise the time spent on the island we will need to have an earlier than normal start and later finish to the day. Students need to be at school at 7.50am as we will be leaving at 8.00am sharp to catch the 9.00am barge. The anticipated return time to Loreto is 5.15 pm. On Friday 23 May the first meeting of the Loreto Science Club will be held. All students are welcome. Science Club is all about having fun exploring hands-on science. The girls will have a chance to make slime, launch rockets, build catapults and generally check out what can be done in our labs. Competitions and prizes will also be a feature of club activities. The club will be running regular events at lunch times and there also will be star gazing nights using our state-of–the art telescope. For further details, students can talk to their science teacher, or check out messages on student café. As well as our busy “in house” program, there are some exciting external enrichment opportunities being offered. The University of Queensland and St Aidan’s Anglican Girls’ School are hosting the Aspiring Women in Science Conference over 23 - 24 May. It is aimed at girls in Years 10 to 12 wanting to continue their science education at a tertiary level and is hosted by ABC Radio’s Madonna King with guest speakers who work in fields such as medicine, meteorology, engineering and environmental science. It promises to be an informative and inspiring event. Interested students can see me for further details. The QUT Vice-Chancellor’s STEM camp is designed to give students a taste of the science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines by engaging in a hands-on, intensive exploration of a project in their chosen discipline. Students will work in teams of 3-4 and apply their creativity and investigative skills on topics such as: addressing environmental issues; solving problems in the energy, food and medical sectors; and improving information dissemination and security. The STEM Camp is an intellectually challenging five day event, run in the Term 3 holiday break, 29 September - 3 October. The camp is fully funded by QUT – there is no cost for students to attend and it is open to Year 11 students. For more information, visit http://www.qut.edu.au/science-engineering/courses-and-study/science-engineering-for-schools The Science Experience (TSE) is a three day hands-on science activities program for Years 9 and 10 students being held at UQ, Griffith Uni and QUT over the Christmas holidays. It is a great opportunity for any student who would like to explore a possible future in the Sciences. For more information, visit http://www.scienceexperience.com.au/ South Queensland Engineering Link Project is a three-day workshop facilitated by professional engineers where students experience project-based engineering activities across a number of disciplines and get a deeper understanding of what an engineer actually does. It will be held from July 9 – 11 at QUT Gardens Point Campus. It is designed to provide an answer to a common question asked by Maths and Science students: "Why are we studying this?” Participants in the program will see direct applications in the real world for the content being studied in senior Maths, Physics, Technology and Chemistry. Due to the fact that women are underrepresented in this career field and it greatly needs their amazing potential, it would be great to see some Loreto girls attend. For more information, visit http://www.telg.com.au/2014Projects.html In closing, I wish all of our students an enlightening and productive Term Two under the erudite guidance of the fantastic Science Department staff and I look forward to seeing our labs buzzing with activity over the coming weeks.

Co-Curricular Music Concert Change The starting time for the Autumn Concert tonight, Tuesday 13 May has been moved back to 6:30 pm. This concert will run with no intermission and we hope to be finished by about 8:30 pm. Please carefully read the Concert Information (including supply of supper, arrival times, warm-up venues and uniform instructions) on Page 12 of the newsletter. Concert Bands One and Two In Week 6 of this term Concert Band One will move their regular rehearsal to the afternoon of Friday 30 May (just for that one week Big Band will swap to Thursday 29 May). This one-off change will allow us to have a very special rehearsal that you do not want to miss! Members of Concert Band Two will also be invited to come along to this extra special rehearsal which will run from straight after school until 5:30 pm. I am not going to release details of exactly what will happen that day, but it will involve a guest professional band and lead towards some fantastic performance opportunities for later this year. All students in the Concert Bands should have received a letter regarding this event at their last rehearsal. Loreto Music Festival The heat schedule for the Loreto Music Festival was published on the Music Noticeboard and heats are well underway. Don’t forget to check the timetable and make sure you attend your nominated session. If this causes difficulties, see the section adjudicator urgently and you may be able to organise an alternate time. URGENT HELP NEEDED We are still in desperate need of donations of prizes to use at the Loreto Trivia Night. We have some fantastic large prizes that will be perfect for the Mega-Raffle later in the year but need multiple smaller items that can be split between table of up to 8 people for the Trivia Night. Donations do not need to be major items: $1/$2 scratchies are perfect to put together money trees; movie tickets, bottles of wine, boxes of chocolates, small toiletry items can be made into baskets; and Coles/ Woolworths vouchers can be used by the Music Support Group to purchase appropriate items. All money raised goes directly back to students in the Music Program through the various scholarships run by the Music Support Group. Please give any donations you can make to the Music Office during school hours, or to the Main College Office. Ben Langford - Director of Music

Year 10 Marist Dancing - Confirmed Dates The Year 10 Students enjoyed their first week of Marist Dancing last Tuesday night. We have been able to secure an extra week of lessons at Marist Ashgrove.

Each Tuesday, students are required to be at Loreto at 6.30pm to be marked off and they will return to Loreto at 9.30pm to be collected by parents. Details of the final dance will be communicated later this term in the Loreto Newsletter. Michelle Davidson - Year 10 Coordinator

Pointers on how to play for our BIG DAY on the greens The game consists of 4 bowls for each player, the small white “jack� and a mat. The aim is to get your bowls closer to the jack than your opponents. If you wish to score, you earn 1 point for all of your bowls that are closer to the jack than any of your opponents, hence in singles, you can score a maximum of 4 points per end. Why not try it in teams where the same principles apply! Bowls are weighted so they roll in a curve, not a straight line. Each bowl has a distinctive symbol or icon - a larger one on one side and a smaller on the other. The bowl will curve around in the direction of the smaller icon. To play, roll or place the jack at the other end of the rink then each player in turn delivers their bowls from the mat. When finished, repeat the process from the other end back to where your started.
