Volume 21 - 24 July, 2012 Dear Parents and Students    This  week  is  “Catholic  Educa on  Week”  in  Queensland.      With  “Celebra ng  Community”  as  the  theme  for  this  year  we  look  to  acknowledge and appreciate all aspects of our schools which promote a sense of community and of belonging.                                                The greatest contribu on to any community I believe, is the gi  of its people.                                     

The Gi  of People    People con nually come into my life at just the right moment.  Some come to teach,  Others to comfort,  Some to challenge,  And some to affirm.  Some people offer me help when I’m struggling,  Some give direc on when I am searching,  And others bring me home when I have go en lost in the endless tasks of life . . . .    How much I have learned,  How o en I have been comforted,  How many  mes I have experienced joy, and  How much I have grown because of the presence of other people in my life.  (Extract from “The Cosmic Dance” by Joyce Rupp). 

    This week as we come together for the biannual College Mass we give praise and thanks for the gi s that each person brings to our  community.  We give thanks for students, teachers, suppor ng staff, parents, past pupils and friends of the College.    We  look  forward  to  our  special  celebra on  Mass  and  to  welcoming  a  very  special  group  of  senior  Past  Pupils  who  graduated  from  Loreto 50 or more years ago.  We look to honour and acknowledge their con nued interest in and connec on with the school.

\Vg axãá Student Laptop Program Last Tuesday the Year 10 students received their HP 2760p Tablet PCs as part of the next phase of the Loreto College student laptop program. Each Year 10 homeroom had a one lesson introductory training session with Mr Morgan (e-Learning co-ordinator), Mr Marsh (Network and Systems Administrator) and me and they were able to login to their Tablet PCs for the first time. These Tablet PCs are high end devices that can be used as both a laptop and a tablet by using both touch and pen technologies. At the beginning of Term 1 2013, laptops / Tablet PCs will be rolled out to Year 8 and Year 10 (present Year 9 students) giving all students from Years 8 through to 11 their own laptop to use at school and at home. At the same time we acknowledge that we do not want Year 12 to be left out and it is our intention to package up the best 140 laptops from our present stock (320) and to give them to Year 12 students in 2013 to use both at school and at home. The outline of the laptop program is below. 2012

Parent Portal (Parent Lounge) Many of you used the online Parent Lounge to recently book Parent/Teacher interviews. This online portal also allows parents to view the college calendar, provides links to important school sites eg. the Loreto Facebook page as well as allowing viewing of a student’s reports. As time goes by, we will be adding more functionality to this portal and encouraging parents to use it more frequently. We have made a slight change to the login screen so that if you have misplaced your password you can easily obtain another one. (see below). From the Quick Links menu on the College website (www.loreto.qld.edu.au) choose Staff, Student, Parent Services. Then click on Parent Lounge. The login screen appears as below and as you can see on the bottom right there is a ‘Forgotten Password’ link which you can click on. You will need to have your parent code (found on fee statements) and also the email address which you have given the school for correspondence. Gavin Swanson - Deputy Principal - ICT

_tÇzâtzx WxÑtÜàÅxÇà axãá Japanese Trip Hada Sensei, Mrs Waite and twelve of the students from the Year 10, 11 and 12 Japanese classes spent an enjoyable two weeks in Japan over the holidays. The girls stayed with families from our sister school, Kanagawa Gakuen, in Yokohama before taking in the sights in Hiroshima, Kyoto, Takayama and Tokyo. Not only did the girls develop their language proficiency and broaden their cultural horizons, they also had the opportunity to forge lifelong friendships. The travellers were excellent ambassadors for Loreto and the trip provided many unforgettable memories which we look forward to hearing about during Assembly. We thank Hada Sensei and Mrs Waite for all their hard work in preparing the girls for the trip and accompanying them on this exchange program.

French Trip It is not too long until the departure of the French Trip in November now as well! Parents are reminded that the Balance of Payments of $1200 is due at the end of this week. This amount will be deducted from your credit cards on Friday 27th July. Thank you and we will see you next term for our final meeting with the travel agent on Tuesday 23rd October.

French Exchange Student Last week Hélène Gandon started at Loreto College. Hélène is a French exchange student who is visiting Australia as part of a Nacel program where students live with a host family and participate in excursions as a group. Prior to arriving in Brisbane, Hélène visited Sydney with the other Nacel students and she will be staying at Loreto until Friday 3rd August. We thank the Chapman family (Helena, Year 12) for their generosity in hosting Hélène. During her time at Loreto, Hélène will be learning English and assisting with French classes. We welcome Hélène to our school community and wish her well for her stay. Louise Tilly - Languages Coordinator

`âá|v axãá QCMF Correction – The performance time for Clarinet Ensemble was listed incorrectly in last week’s newsletter – it should be Saturday 18 August at 2:18 pm. The arrival time and all other information was correct. A complete schedule of Loreto performances can be found in this newsletter. Extended rehearsals - In order to give some of our largest ensembles the best possible chance of performing to their potential at QCMF, we will be extending the rehearsal finishing times for Concert Band One, Concert Band Two and Senior Choir over the next two weeks to 5:30 PM. These extended rehearsals have been flagged in the school calendars all year. We have just had up to eight weeks between rehearsals for some of these groups so I would ask that all students make themselves available. Specific dates are as follows: Senior Choir – Tuesdays 31 July & 7 August, Concert Band One – Thursdays 2nd and 9th August, Concert Band Two – Fridays 3rd and 10th August. Performances in Term 3 – There are quite a number of performances coming up in the first half of term 3. Attached to this newsletter you will find a list of our QCMF performance times. Any students who finds a clash with their ensembles should see Mr Langford urgently. Also please note the following: Sunday 5 August Mt Carmel Fete (Sorelle & Exit Stage Left arrive 9:45 am for 10:30 am performances), Sunday 12 August Open Day (Jazz Ensemble, String Quartet, Chorale from 9:45am to 12:30 pm), Sunday 26 August Primary Music Camp (Concert Band One, String Ensemble, Year 8 Brass Ensemble from 2:30 pm), Friday 31 August - Combined Concert Band One workshop and concert with St Laurence’s College (Concert Band One 3:30 pm to 7.00 pm). QCMF Helpers – The Catholic Colleges Music Festival is a huge event and a key date in the yearly Loreto performance calendar. It is run and staffed entirely by volunteers from the Villanova community as a service to our Queensland Catholic community. However, it has grown so large that they have again this year asked for assistance. Any parents or senior students who are able to help for even a single 3 - 4 hour shift over the weekend would be very appreciated! You will not be asked to do anything complicated or be in charge of running any venue/area, simply operate a BBQ, move gear backstage, sell tickets and programs etc. If you would like to help and support this fantastic event that offers our students so much, then you can register on the Villa Music website: http://www.vnc.qld.edu.au/Music/index.htm Congratulations – To our Flute Ensemble One and Flute Trio, who competed in the Queensland Flute Guild Flute Challenge on Sunday. Both groups played extremely well and won their sections of the event! Year 8 Incursion – On Monday 30 July, Year 8 - 10 Music Classes will be attending a performance called “Sounds Like Rock”. This is a fantastic concert that covers the history of Rock Music with artists Terry Murray and Gillian Eastoe.

Loreto Music Festival Bandslam Final – Will be held at lunchtime this Friday in the Mary Ward Centre. Three bands have been selected to compete in this event – Big Blue House (Year 9), The De-Railed Trains (Year 10) and The Rings (Year 10). The Perpetual House Trophy is still up for grabs so come along and cheer for your house to really fire them up and see if you can lift the MWC roof! Little Big Sound Conference – Is a one day forum for young musicians looking to break into the music industry on Saturday 15 September. Run by QMusic in conjunction with Youth Music Industries, it will feature panel workshops, question and answer sessions, performance showcases and more. For more information, collect a flyer from the music department. QYO and Gondwana Choirs – If you are looking for ways to extend your performing experience, then you could consider auditioning for the Queensland Youth Orchestras or Gondwana Choirs. Applications close for these excellent organisations in early August. More information from the music department for those who would like to know more! LOST Guitar – Could all music students please check that they took the correct guitar home on Friday and Monday. Kaitlyn Feeney’s brand new guitar has been taken from the Music Instrument Storeroom. I am sure that someone has taken it home accidently in place of their own instrument as all the black hardcases look the same. It is important that this guitar is returned promptly. It is a Alhambra 1C in a black hard (Styrofoam) case with 2 small pink name labels on the exterior. Thank you. Ben Langford - Director of Music

fÑÉÜàá WxÑtÜàÅxÇà axãá Gynasium The much anticipated opening of the gym will occur this week. A number of staff and students have been mentored on safety, exercises and the use of the equipment. Staff and students are also required to sign an agreement form before using the gym. Due to the gym size, at this stage it will be made available to students from Years 11 & 12 only. Morning, lunch and afternoon sessions will be available for the students during the week but they must sign up to ensure a place each week. The reconfiguration of room 704 has been a process which has been twelve months in the planning and preparation. The gym is currently at stage one and this year the school has purchased mirrors, posters, a rowing machine, a spin bike, an upright bike, a cable multi-station, dumbells and rack, puching bag, gloves and mits, speed ball, bench and medicine balls and rack. Stage two and three will see more equipment such as an additional rowing machine, bikes, a cross trainer, treadmill, assisted chin up and dip machine, leg press and shoulder press. Another initiative which the school is keen to implement is to ask the Loreto community for assistance with photographs of past students who represented Australia (at Open level) in any sport. The idea is to hang A4 size photographs of athletes in the gym, to acknowledge our elite past pupils and to hopefully inspire our young Loreto athletes of today. Photographs need to be of athletes in their Australian uniform (would also be great if they were signed and action shots). If anyone could be of assistance this would be much appreciated. Chris Jones - PE Coordinator

Sunglasses – for Sport, PE and Breaks This year the PE department together with the SRC have brought in the initiative of sunglasses. These sunglasses can be purchased for $10 and worn during PE lessons, sport training and games (where appropriate) and during morning tea and

lunch breaks. Like hats, sunglasses provide necessary protection from the sun. A note from SRC leader: Emmeline Allison “It is important to note that exposure of the eyes to UV radiation, as does frequently occur in many sport lessons, can cause both short and long-term eye damage. This can include swelling or irritation of the eyes through to cataracts and various other forms of visual impairment. Sport lessons can involve up to 45 minutes of UV exposure, which is more than enough exposure to trigger such complications.” Please note: The available sunglasses are the only ones to be worn at school. They are not a fashion accessory and do not resemble the same style as those from Orton, Gucci etc. Sample sunglasses are available to try on in the PE Office. Orders will be taken over the next two weeks. Students need to bring in $10 in an envelope with their name, homeroom and ‘Sunglasses’ written on the outside and placed in the forms box in the main office. Students have until Friday 3rd of August to place orders and will be informed once they arrive.

BSGSA Sport Soccer - This Week’s Draw:                                                                                                                                                                                           This week all teams play at away venues.

Intermediate B1 -The girls played well, with a convincing 25 - 3 win over the second Loreto team. It was pleasing to see the effort that each girl put in to the game. Great shooting from Hannah Dalton, Rebecca Gray and Maddy Knudsen. Coach: Kate Mullins Intermediate B2 - The girls played in tough conditions against Loreto B1 team. It was a challenging game and the team enjoyed playing against their own school. Great effort girls! Coach: Emma Macleod Intermediate C - The Intermediate C's have continued their winning streak despite the unpleasant weather, narrowly defeating Lourdes Hill 17 - 12. Next week will be a challenge playing the other undefeated team. Coach: Magadeline Ryan Intermediate D - Loreto defeated St Rita’s 31 - 0. A brilliant game by the 9B's. The girls persevered in wet conditions to deliver yet another strong win. The defensive pressure executed by the team was outstanding, leaving the opposition scoreless. Intercepts from Isobella Scott and Grace O'Shea were highlights of the match. Kate O'Sullivan was also particularly impressive in the centre court. Well done girls!

PISA is coming to our school! Our school has been chosen to represent Australia for the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) which is taking place between 30 th July and 7 th September 2012. A random sample of 15‐year‐old students will be part of a once in a lifetime opportunity to represent Australia in education! PISA is an international assessment, occurring every three years, which measures skills in mathematics, science, reading, problem solving and financial literacy at a point when students have almost finished their compulsory schooling. PISA helps to inform policy makers involved with education on how well schools are succeeding in helping students to acquire the skills and knowledge they will need to meet challenges beyond school. Since the first PISA assessment in 2000, the survey has continued to raise interest amongst educators and policy-makers world-wide. In 2012, Australia will be one of almost 70 countries participating in PISA. More than 800 schools and over 15 000 students will represent our country in this important project. PISA is part of the National Assessment Program in Australia. Participation in these sample assessments is an obligation for government schools under the National Education Agreement between the Commonwealth and the States and Territories, and an obligation for non-government schools under Commonwealth schools funding legislation and funding agreements for 2009-2012.

What will PISA mean for our school? Twenty-five students who are randomly selected from our school will be sampled to complete a two-hour paper-based assessment consisting of mathematics, science, financial literacy and reading questions. These students will also be asked to complete a questionnaire. After the paper-based assessment and questionnaire, a sub-sample of 20 students who participated in the paper-based assessment will also participate in a computer-based assessment of problem solving, mathematical literacy and reading literacy.

Date of Assessment:

Monday 6 August 2012

PISA School Coordinator:

PISA IT Coordinator:

Mr Pat Elsworthy

Mr Gavin Swanson

ACER- PISA Project Information Line: 1800 280 625

Every participating school and student has an important role in showing the rest of the world what Australia can do. ACER will provide your school and participating students with a certi icate, recognising their contribution, and students will receive results from PISA. Each student will also receive a small gift in appreciation of their participation.
