Volume 10 - 1 April, 2014 Dear Parents & Students As this is the last Newsletter for the term, I wish to extend my thanks to Year 12 students for providing such a warm welcome to our new Year 8’s this term. As “Big Sisters” they have provided the Year 8’s with a genuine sense of being cared for and ‘belonging’. This has allowed our Year 8’s not only to settle in but, more importantly, it has helped them to feel connected and valued as members of our Loreto family.

DEPUTIES AT LORETO I wish to advise the community of two significant changes to the membership of the College Leadership team that will come into effect in 2015. Last week I advised the School Council and staff of the following news: 

After 29 years of excellent service and generous leadership, Mr Elsworthy has advised me of his intention to retire at year’s end. He explains “there are many places where roses need to be smelt and I intend to seek them out in the coming years”.

There will of course be opportunities for more fitting thanks to be given to Mr Elsworthy at a later date but suffice for now to say that Loreto owes him an enormous debt of gratitude. To have led so capably and generously for such a sustained period of time is testament to his excellence as a leader, his goodwill, his perseverance and his dedication and commitment to Loreto.

Additionally, after a great deal of discernment, Mr Swanson has come to the decision that he wishes to return to teaching. Mr Swanson has come to the realization that the classroom is actually where he most passionately wants to be. He says that “it is an exciting time to be a teacher” and I couldn’t agree more. But sadly, this means that he no longer wishes to continue in the role as Deputy Principal – ICT. I therefore wish to formally acknowledge the very real and significant changes and improvements that Mr Swanson has led in IT at Loreto, working with the IT team. I believe that this has been a pivotal time in the College’s history and Mr Swanson’s contribution has been immeasurable. He has been instrumental in creating a pathway towards a preferred future for teaching and learning at Loreto and we thank him sincerely for this. As much as we will miss his expertise as a member of th e leadership team, we are delighted that he will be back in the Loreto classroom.

These two changes, coupled with the changes associated with the Year 7 intake, thus present us with an opportunity to restructure the Senior Leadership team for 2015.

From 2015, the four Deputy Principal positions at Loreto will be: Deputy Principal – Mission (Mr Donnelly) Deputy Principal – Pastoral Care (Ms Carty) Deputy Principal – Curriculum and Technology (to be advertised shortly) Deputy Principal – Administration (to be advertised shortly) 32 DALE STREET For many years, the 32 Dale Street property has been the last remaining private residence on the “Loreto Block”. It has thus been the object of the School Council’s strategic desire with the hope that it might one day be secured for Loreto’s future use. I am therefore pleased to confirm that the Loreto Sisters secured the property earlier this year. With the current building program underway, the timing was such that it was not financially possible for the College to purchase the property itself, so it was marvellous for the school’s long term future that the Loreto Sisters were able to do so. On behalf of the wider Loreto community I thank them for their wisdom, stewardship and support. STAFF RETREAT This Friday, as the students commence their holiday, the Loreto staff will be on Retreat. The focus of this year’s retreat will be on “enriching of the Christian tradition through Indigenous Spirituality.” Our presenters will be Kerry Charlton and Graeme Mundine. Kerry Charlton is the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Ecumenical Commission (NATSIEC) National Director. Kerry has a background in education and training. Her skills and experience have been further developed through employment with TAFE and work with Government departments and the church particularly the Christian Brothers. Graeme Mundine, a Bundjalung man from Northern NSW, is a well-respected Indigenous Catholic leader having been involved in Church and Indigenous affairs for more than three decades. He was inaugural Chair and Executive Officer of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Catholic Council (NATSICC). He is now the Executive Officer of the Aboriginal Catholic Ministry in the Sydney Archdiocese. He is committed to advocating for the needs, hopes and aspirations of Aboriginal Peoples within the Church, with Government and with the wider community. I greatly look forward to this day and thank Mr Donnelly for his coordination. BEST WISHES 

We wish every success to Meg & Tilly (Year 12 & 10) Ingram who are travelling to Italy this holiday travelling with the “Voices of Birralee” on their international tour to Europe competing in the “Concorso Corale Internationale” at Riva del Garda. We wish both girls a sensational trip and the best of luck.

To Mrs Ashton, Mr Donnelly, Mrs Hanson and Mrs van den Brink each of whom is taking leaving next term. We wish them wonderful periods of renewal and rest. May their time away be enjoyable and relaxing. In Mr Donnelly’s absence, Mrs Jan Kearney will be the Acting Deputy Principal – Religion. In Mrs hanson’s absence Ms Diane McGowan will be Acting Coordinator of Economics and Geogaphy.

CONGRATULATIONS 

To our U16 and U18 Water Polo teams on their wins in the Water Polo Grand Finals last weekend. Both teams have played strongly all season so it is very pleasing to see them achieve the Premierships.

To Rebecca Marshall on winning the Regional Lions Youth of the Year competition. Rebecca now heads to Cairns next weekend to compete in the State Finals. We wish her every success.

Yours sincerely

Cheryl Hamilton PRINCIPAL

Parent /Student/Homeroom Teacher Interviews On Tuesday 6 May we will be conducting interviews for each student and her parent/s with one of her Homeroom teachers. The purpose of this interview is to reflect on the student’s progress and to make positive and practical plans for the future. The interviews will have a slightly different focus depending on the student’s Year Level, eg Year 8’s will reflect on the process of settling into secondary school and Year 11’s on their adjustment to senior schooling. The Year 10 interviews will begin to focus on the development of each student’s Senior Education Training Plan. Letters, Interim Reports and instructions for booking interview times on-line via Parent Lounge will be posted to each family on Monday 7 April. Please email Mrs Robyn McKeon mckeonr@loreto.qld.edu.au on Thursday 10 or Friday 11 April or telephone the school office on Tuesday 22 April if this material does not arrive. Interviews will be conducted between 1.30pm and 6.30pm and will be for approximately 15 minutes. Classes will conclude at 12.30pm. Students may go home or be supervised at school until 3.20pm. This interview is in addition to the Parent/ Student/Subject Teacher interviews held in July when parents have the opportunity to talk with each of their daughter’s teachers about her progress in particular subjects. We hope this interview opportunity will enhance communication between families and the College and our ability to provide the very best for your daughters academically and pastorally.

New Cashless Loreto Tuckshop on its way!

As part of our tuckshop re-development we are implementing a payment and online ordering system called ‘Flexischools’ which will allow payment for tuckshop items using the current Loreto Student ID Card. This system is widely used across many schools in Brisbane and will enable us to improve the efficiency of the flow in and out of the tuckshop as the students purchase food and drink, which will be particularly necessary in 2015 when Year 7 students join us. The advantages that the Flexischools Card System will offer include: 

Works with existing Loreto Student ID Card

Reduces or eliminates the need for cash at school

Fast operation – reduced queuing times

Parents can monitor purchases online and set credit limits

On-screen photo ID security

We will be phasing in the various features of Flexischools during Terms 2 and 3 of this year.

Details on how to create an account for your daughter will be emailed to you once the Flexischools installation process is completed, which will be early in the upcoming holiday break. Term 2 Students will be able to use their student card to purchase goods at the tuckshop. Parents set up a Flexischools account online and pre-load their account with funds. Students can make purchases at the canteen by swiping their card at the cash register. Parents can view their students’ purchases online and can set a daily spending limit on the student’s card. No financial or personal information will be stored on their cards. Term 3 From the start of Term 3 we will also be implementing an online ordering system so that tuckshop orders and payment can be done from home. Also at this time the tuckshop will become completely cashless and will require ID cards for any purchases. Noel Williams

Year 8 Green and Blue have completed their first folio for Art. Students were given the task of photographing an object which they selected because of its aesthetic and symbolic qualities. These images were then altered using Photoshop and developed into designs suitable for screenprinting with a paper stencil. The image was combined with text to add meaning. Their work reflect their growing ability to apply appropriate visual language and visual conventions with increasing complexity. Mrs L McCulkin - Art Coordinator

Music Department Date Claimer – In the first week of Term 3 (Thursday 24 July) we will take both the Year 9 and 10 Classes to see Queensland Symphony Orchestra concert “Mr Smith’s Composition”, a narrated journey that will take the students through composing a masterpiece, and learning how the instruments of the orchestra transform the notes on the page into the music we hear. Ben Langford - Director of Music

Co-curricular Music Autumn Concerts In weeks 2 and 3 of next term we will run our annual Autumn Concerts. This is the first chance for our ensembles to perform in 2014, an important step in their development for the year, and it is therefore compulsory for all students to attend the concert at which their ensemble is performing. It is also expected that parents would attend to support their daughters and provide an audience for the performing groups. Generally, Loreto Concerts begin at 6pm, with most students arriving by 5:30pm for warm -up and tuning with their conductor. The concerts always finish punctually at 9pm as long as we are able to get underway on time. Concert etiquette requires that students and other audience members attend the whole concert, not leaving at interval or after their own performance is complete. Any extraordinary exception to this courtesy should be organised in advance of the concert date by contacting the Coordinator of Music, Mr Ben Langford, in writing. Please note the following groups and their Autumn Concert date (also in school calendars and newsletters earlier this year): Autumn Concert 1: (Friday 9 May, 6:00 – 9:00pm) featuring Big Band, Concert Bands 1&2, Guitar Ensembles 1&2, Junior Choir, Senior Choir, String Ensemble Autumn Concert 2: (Tuesday 13 May, 6:00 – 9:00pm) featuring Sorelle, Exit Stage Left, Flute Ensembles 1&2, Clarinet Ensembles 1&2, Percussion Ensembles 1&2 and Chorale. Please note that Symphony Orchestra, Beginner String Ensemble and Beginner Brass Ensemble will not perform at these concerts. Sorelle Could students in Sorelle (and their parents) please be aware that in the first weeks of Term 2 we will sometimes rehearse on a Tuesday morning before school (Tuesday 22 April & Tuesday 29 April). These are not additional rehearsals but replacements for ones lost to the Anzac Day public holiday and the Year 11 Retreat, both of which occur in the weeks just prior to the Autumn Concerts. Music Support Group The next MSG Meeting will be held on Wednesday 23 April starting at 7:30 pm. All parents of Loreto Music students are most welcome to attend. We are currently planning the Loreto Trivia Night and preparing for the Autumn Concerts. Ben Langford - Director of Music

Lions Youth of the Year Congratulations to Rebecca Marshall (Year 12) who, on Saturday evening, won the Lions Regional Final! Rebecca travelled to Tweed Heads for her thirty minute interview with the judging panel early on Saturday morning. That night Rebecca, along with four other contestants from Stanthorpe, Ballina, Gold Coast and Waterford (Region Q), responded to two impromptu questions and then delivered a prepared speech. The individual interview covers questions on leadership, academic achievements and aspirations, sporting and cultural activities, citizenship and community involvement and current affairs. The two impromptu speeches for Saturday evening were: 

Using Malaysian Airline Flight 370 as an example, what conflicts arise from national interests and international cooperation?

Is it ever ok to drive through a red light?

There is no preparation time or warning bell given for these speeches and the contestant must begin speaking on the last word of the question. This is not an easy task. Rebecca then delivered her prepared speech on Social Media. It was a confident, impassioned speech highlighting the objectification of women and the need for increased self-worth and self-respect among young women. Rebecca, we extend our congratulations to you and wish you well in the Queensland Final! This final is held on April 12 in Cairns. Our thoughts and best wishes will be with you!

Rosie’s Newsletter Would parents and students kindly note the following link to the latest “Rosies” newsletter. http://bit.ly/rosiesautumn2014 Five times a year Loreto students, accompanied by two Loreto staff members, join Rosies volunteers as they provide companionship to some of the homeless of Brisbane. We are grateful for this collaboration with Rosies as it provides opportunities for members of our community to make our Christian faith alive and active.

College Blazer Orders We have been informed by Ranier that the new blazer orders and blazers having honour pockets embroidered will not arrive until approximately 28 April. Once these arrive and are checked off they will be distributed to the students in homeroom groups. I will notify the students via the morning notices once they are ready for collection. Thank you.
