Dear Parents & Students I offer this reflection on sincerity from Mother Gonzaga Barry IBVM, founding Provincial of Loreto Australia.

“Nothing is beautiful that is not true. Shun affectation and imitation of others, study and strive to improve yourselves, and then be your own true selves. If people took half the pains to be themselves that they take to be like other people, whose manners and ways they effect, the world would be much the better for having more original and genuine types of nobility.” Mother Gonzaga Barry, 1892

Art News Year Eleven and Twelve Visual Art Students have made their first gallery visit for the year. “Falling Back to Earth” at GOMA features the work of internationally renowned artist Cai Guo-Qiang. It is a credit to GOMA to have such a respected contemporary artist exhibiting at the gallery. For the student it was a memorable experience to explore his adventurous installations that have transformed three of the main gallery spaces. The group combined with Year 10 Visual Art students also visited an exhibition “Exotic Lies Sacred Ties” by Australian contemporary artist Danie Mellor at the UQ Art Museum. These works gave the students the opportunity to view his finely crafted works that invite the audience to engage with the multi-layered images that challenge our assumptions of past history. This week our Art Council leader Keeleigh O’Hanlon, launched the “Bin Painting Competition” with students invited to submit designs on the theme “True Colours”. Art Club will start this Friday lunch time. Year Eight students are invited to sign up to take part in a range of enjoyable art activities. Mrs Leonie McCulkin - Art Coordinator

Beginner Brass and String Ensembles Last Wednesday, all Year 8 students attended a presentation introducing the Loreto Beginner Brass & String Ensemble program. Through this program students are able to “try before you buy” playing a music instrument and participating in an ensemble. Best of all, the program is completely optional and completely free-of-charge. For the duration of Semester One, participating students can choose to learn Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn or Euphonium (Brass Ensemble) OR Violin, Viola, Cello or Double Bass (String Ensemble) with all instruments and music books loaned free from the school. Each week they will attend one group lesson and one lunchtime rehearsal all with a specialist tutor. At the end of Semester One parents will receive a formal report on their daughter’s progress and will then have the option of either withdrawing from the program, or continuing into Semester Two (instrument and music book continue to be free and lessons may be part-subsidized). If your daughter has expressed an interest in participating in the program, then she should have received an Application Letter at this presentation, which should be now have been returned to the Music Department. Places are limited, so if you have not yet returned your Application Form, please do so immediately or you will miss out!

Musical “Crazy For You” Raffle Donations: The Loreto Music Support Group is organising a raffle with tickets to be sold at the musical performances, and are therefore looking for donations to use as prizes. Anyone who might be able to donate a prize would be making a significant contribution to the success of this year’s Musical. Please contact Karen Carr at the Music Office music@loreto.qld.edu.au, or MSG President Jenny Hunter jennifer_hunter@optusnet.com.au if you are able to assist in this way. Rehearsals:

This week: Tuesday 4-7pm (8pm finish for Follies), Friday 4-7pm (8pm finish for Follies), Sunday is an all day rehearsal from 9am-5pm. Crew are attending Sunday’s rehearsal for the first time. All students bring own morning tea and water bottles. Lunch and afternoon tea will be provided.

Ticket sales:

Ticket sales are strong but there are plenty of good seats still available, particularly for Wednesday and Thursday nights. You can find the direct link to the ticket sale site on the Loreto College website homepage.

Props:

We are still looking to borrow older style wooden chairs for use in some scenes.

Ushers:

We require two girls to be ticket ushers for each night of the musical performances (between 6-7pm on Wed 12 - Sat 15 March). Please email Mr Langford with what days you are available if you are interested – first priority will be given to students in Years 10–12 who attended auditions for the musical (and are not already in the cast, orchestra or crew). Ben Langford - Director of Music

Public Speaking Year 11: This week the following was forwarded from QUOTA. If you are interested, please see Mrs O’Neill for further details. Quota Beenleigh offers Year 11 students a chance to research and speak on a Quota Hand-in-Hand project in a developing country and win prize money which the student donates to that project. This is an excellent opportunity to hone research and public speaking skills while helping the disadvantaged. Previous participants have continued performing community service work locally and abroad. This year’s judges will be Professor Lesley Chenoweth (Griffith University), Quota International President Elect Karen Murphy, Quota International Region 13 Director Allison Lingard and Quotarian Cara Downes.

Years 10 and 11: YMCA Youth Parliament is still open for any student who wishes to participate. If are interested in having a say in your future, being involved in Queensland’s decision making process, meeting with politicians and proposing new laws, this is for you! If you wish to proceed, please see Mrs O’Neill early next week and speak with Maddie Lloyd who was elected for Greenslopes for two years. She will be able to share her experiences.

Years 8 to 12: Rostrum Voice of Youth, one of Loreto’s most popular competitions, is open for registration. Thank you to all the Year 8 girls who have shown their interest. There will be a meeting the week of 24 February for those wishing to participate. Meanwhile if you have not received relevant information on topics, please see Mrs O’Neill.

Languages News German It is almost two months since 19 students and three teachers from Loreto College Coorparoo visited our sister school in Bad Homburg in Germany. On assembly last week, the students who participated in the German Exchange had the opportunity to present a report of their trip and to give some gifts to the school. During their trip, the group had many wonderful experiences including visiting Mary Ward schools in both Mainz and Augsburg and being given tours of the respective towns by Sister Irmagard and Sister Rita. Every year we try and do something a little different to previous trips. This year we visited the town of Bad Windsheim, located on the Romantic Road between Nuremberg and Munich. This is where our German teacher, Peita Ward, originally spent her German Exchange back in 1983. 30 years on and Frau Ward was delighted to introduce her students to her host family and show them the value of life-long learning and life-long friendships that come with exchange programs. Another highlight was our amazing day spent at the Zugspitze, the highest mountain in Germany. This location guaranteed our students a snow-filled day, where they were able to cross the border into Austria and appreciate incredible mountain-top views. We would like to sincerely thank Frau Ward and Frau van den Brink for accompanying us on this trip and for all your hard work in making this trip possible.

French This week we welcome 19 French students and two teachers from our sister school, St Joseph de Tivoli in Bordeaux, France. Our visitors arrived on Thursday 13 February and are being hosted by students of French in Years 10 and 11 who will travel to France on exchange at the end of this year. The French exchange group will follow their own program over the coming week until their departure on Monday 24 February. This program includes lessons in Art, Sport, Music and Origami to give the students a taste of school life at Loreto College. The French Exchange students will also be visiting our French classes here at school to assist in French language learning. While they are here, the French exchange students will also participate in a number of excursions including Australia Zoo, Mary Cairncross Rainforest and Maleny. On Friday, the group spent the day at Stradbroke Island and enjoyed the scenery, the wildlife and some swimming. We would especially like to thank the families involved in hosting our international guests and all the teachers who have organised activities and excursions for them. On Wednesday 19 February, we will celebrate French Day with our international visitors. All Year 8 girls and French students in Years 9-12 are encouraged to wear red, white and blue accessories to celebrate. Please bring these accessories to school and put them on when you arrive. There is no charge for this. French cakes, ĂŠclairs, croissants and pains au chocolat will be sold at morning tea and there will be a photo booth in 410 at lunch time. We look forward to seeing you all then!
