Volume 9 - 26 March, 2013 Dear Parents and Students  I take this opportunity to offer my thanks to each of you for your contribu on to the many successes of first term.   Like  me  I  am  sure  that  you  are  looking  forward  to  the  holidays  and  to  the  joy  of  Easter.    But,  for  now,  we  ‘remember’ the passion and the pain of Jesus’ suffering.  This week we enter into the mystery and the sorrow of  his death and we look to the promise and the hope that his resurrec on brings.             

“If we stand at the foot of the Cross  we can see all the sorrow of  the world, past, present, future  gathered together in one sorrow.”                   Leon Bloy     

Jesus  bears  our  sorrows,  he  bears  our  pain.    We  now  bring  to  him  our brokenness and our failings.  We seek his forgiveness and mercy  and rejoice in the everlas ng life and love he gives to us. 

I  take  this  opportunity  to  wish  you  all  a  most  blessed  and  holy        Easter.  May the light of Christ shine brightly in us all.  Amen.   

 

         

  

“Act Justly    Love Tenderly     Walk Humbly      With Your God.”

Uâá|Çxáá WxÑtÜàÅxÇà axãá On Monday 11 March the Year 11 Legal Studies class attended the Holland Park Magistrates Court. During the visit the girls were exposed to various cases relating to such topics as break and enter, drug driving and assault. The girls were fortunate enough to have Judge Schofield close the court for a one-on-one discussion regarding the basis of the justice system in Queensland, cases that they had seen and the judgements handed down. Following this discussion, the girls were able to visit the cells below the courthouse to learn more about how processes work. Finally we were able to participate in a mock trial in Courtroom 1, which proved both challenging and entertaining. Next term the girls are looking forward to a visit to the Supreme Court. Thanks to Mr Elsworthy who accompanied us on our excursion. Ms Christine Rynne - Business Coordinator

VtÜxxÜá hÑwtàx University of Queensland – Careers that shape the world! Students from Years 10, 11 and 12 are invited to experience UQ's annual ‘Careers that shape the world’ event on Thursday 11 July 2013 at the St Lucia campus. This free event is a great way for students to discover the range of career opportunities available with a UQ degree and find one that is right for them. Students can choose from a wide variety of interactive sessions delivered by industry professionals, academic experts and UQ students. To register for this even (in the school holidays) and for more information about this wonderful event visit http://www.uq.edu.au/shapeyourworld/ Ms Christine Rynne - Careers Coordinator

Can you commit to one Sunday per month? If so, Mrs Ward would love to hear from you. We are looking for singers, pianists, flautists, guitarists – anything really!! Some boys from St Laurence’s College have already volunteered. It would be great if some Loreto girls could also consider assisting. Members of the parish are always delighted to hear young people making a contribution to the Music Ministry. Please email Mrs Ward if you would like to become involved. wardp@loreto.qld.edu.au

Wxutà|Çz axãá As the first term draws to a close, so too has the first round of the QDU competition. The results are shown below. I would encourage the Year 9 and 11 teams in particular to consider preparing for Round Two as soon as the exams are over, since their first debate is in the first week back! Round Two for the Year 10 and 12 teams is on April 24th , which seems a long time away but is in fact the second week back. See attached Debating Results. Congratulations in particular to the Year 8 teams, who performed splendidly in their first ever debates last Wednesday. It is always good for team morale to start with a win!

They have delved into the works of Ernest Hemingway and George Orwelll, revelled in children’s picture books and nursery rhymes and, much to the girls’ delight, embarked on a trip down memory lane into the magical world of Enid Blyton. The focus of this unit of work has allowed the students to engage with and explore a range of texts within the frameworks of literary theory. They have learnt to question and ponder the role of readers and authors in extracting meaning from texts. These skills were then transferrable, as the girls chose an auteur film of individual interest, producing either a reader or author centred response and accompanying defence. The girls have been excited and challenged by these new theoretical concepts and look forward to exploring the transformation of traditional folk stories and fairy tales next term. Mrs Thomas – Teacher of English Extension 

`âá|v axãá Music Tour Don’t forget that Parent Commitment forms for the proposed Music Tour were due today (Tuesday 26 March). It is imperative that we receive a response from all parents of invited students so that we know whether or not we can begin to confirm bookings. If you have not yet replied to the Music Tour Proposal, please contact the Music Office urgently.

Autumn Concert Information All Loreto ensembles (except the newly formed Year 8 Brass Ensemble) will perform at one of these events on Friday 19 April or Friday 26 April. These two dates form our first major performance commitments for the year and it is an expectation of membership in any school music group that ALL students involved in an ensemble attend for their concert. Concerts run from 6 pm to 9 pm and students are expected to stay for the duration of the event, participating as an audience member when not actually on stage. If this expectation causes any difficulties, then it is vital that parents contact the Coordinator of Music, Mr Ben Langford, either by phone or email urgently to negotiate a solution. Full information (including expectations, concert program, arrival times, warm-up venues, uniform and supper) can be found at the back of this newsletter.

Private Tuition and Ensemble Rehearsals Begin on the very first Monday morning of school next term (Monday 15 April) – 100% attendance is expected right from the first day as we have our Autumn Concerts on the first two Friday’s of Term!

Ever wondered what happens at a P & F meeting? Here’s what you missed at our Tuesday 12 March meeting: 

Our special guest Carmel Nash, Executive Director of the Federation of Parents and Friends Associations of Catholic Schools in Queensland, spoke of the work being performed by the Federation.



A Translink review of south-east Queensland bus services was undertaken and, unfortunately the route 7 service previously used by some Loreto students will not get the support it needs to resume.



We discussed how the committee’s funds should be deployed to assist the school. (These funds are contributed by parents via a voluntary levy with the quarterly school fees).



There was a full sweep of school activities during the first term, be they sporting, social, academic or otherwise and many more to come in Term Two.



The drop curtain is set to be installed in the Mary Ward Centre in the June school holidays.



To celebrate our 85 year anniversary, a ‘Great Gatsby’ themed gala dance is set down for 1 June at Rydges Southbank (see the invite enclosed!).



Tattersalls has been booked for the parents’ dinner held at the same time as the Year 12 Formal and the Year 12 Father Daughter Dinner was also discussed.

If this whets your appetite for all things P&F and you would like to be further involved in our College, please come along to the next meeting on 7 May. Garry West - P & F Secretary

fÉÅÅxÜáxà VÉÄÄxzx VxÄxuÜtà|ÉÇ Éy _|àxÜtàâÜx This is a huge day for avid readers. A busload of girls travelled to hear authors such as Jackie French, Anna Fienberg, Christine Howe, Kaz Delaney, JC Burke, Andy Griffiths and Lisa Forrest. It was a real insight into the writing process when JC Burke passed around her writing notebooks and we could see practices such as creating a mood journal for a character. When asked about how she got ideas for her recent books, girls laughed in recognition of Tashi when Anna Fienberg replied, “Well, it was like this.” Kaz Delaney gave pertinent writing (and life) advice: ‘Wanting’ will never make it happen. Take the first step!” Girls queued excitedly for writers to sign their books. In the lunch hour, we joined other schools trying to create a Guinness Book of Records record for the number of people walking five metres with a book on their head. So, it was a lot of fun, as well as being a stimulating day for book lovers.

Loreto V’s Lourdes Hill 1 – 20 March 2013 What a game! Lourdes Hill 1 leapt from the blocks at the very start with a quick goal and very defensive play. It took nearly ten minutes for Loreto to come to grips with the onslaught of the opposition and slowly claw their way back into the game to end the first half 11 points down. After half time a totally different team entered the arena. An enthusiastic and energized team worked very hard to turn the game around and defeat Lourdes Hill 1 by 10 points. Loreto’s final score was 45 points. Well done to all team players on a very tough game in wet conditions to win first place for the Southern District Division and move on to play for overall first place this week against the winner of the Northern Districts Division.

Results Round 6 Open A – AHS 2 def LOR 1 (15-25, 25-22, 25-23) - This game was effectively the premiership decider as both Loreto and All Hallows’ were undefeated to this point with only one match remaining. This resulted in a match worthy of two undefeated teams with a high standard of volleyball and much tension throughout the three sets. The final set went to All Hallows’ 25-23 with never more than two points between the two teams throughout this set. While it was a shame to lose 2 sets to 1, all of the girls should hold their heads high after an outstanding and fully committed performance. Open B – LOR 2 def AHS 1 (16-25, 25-19, 25-12) - Today's game against All Hallows' was the hardest game the girls have faced this season. Everyone played exceptionally well, with brilliant serving from Erin and Sarah. One week to go, yet again chasing another win. Junior A – LOR 2 def AHS 1 (25-15, 19-25, 15-7) - After three weeks of disappointing losses, the Junior A team has finally triumphed in a 2-1 victory against All Hallows’. The girls yet again went out and played the three touch volleyball which has been developed over the last couple of weeks, and this time were not disappointed. Despite yet another second-set "voodoo" appearing to plague them, the girls fought hard to win the third and deciding set. Megan Laycock was a stand out general performer, whilst Georgia Christie and Lucy Nielson’s strong serves also kept the team constantly on top. Junior B – LOR 2 def BRI 1 (15-25, 25-21, 16-14) - Excellent game this week girls, we adapted to the game conditions perfectly. Kate Duffy’s serves were amazing! Congratulations to Isobella Scott and Kate Duffy for getting multiple over arm serves over as well as Brittany Ryan for consistent back court defence. Junior C – MMK 3 def LOR 0 (25-18, 25-14, 16-14) - An unlucky loss against a very consistent serving and returning team. Good serving efforts by Brigitte Mastry and nice saves by Claire Lyons. The other team was better on the day. Best of luck for your last game. Junior D – LOR 3 def AHS 0 - The Junior D Volleyball team defeated arch rivals All Hallows' last Wednesday in what was predicted to be the toughest match of the season so far. The girls played exceptionally well, winning in straight sets and in comfortable fashion. Their training and commitment have been of a very high standard and this has reflected in the way they have performed this year. The girls look forward to playing their final game of the season next week. Noteable Performances: Christina Stephanos and Georgia Paros. Junior E – AHS 2 def LOR 0 (25-16, 27-25) - A hard fought game and an especially tight second set that went down to the wire. We were unable to string enough points together on our serve to take that set, but we showed great courage to fight back to get into that situation! Compliments must go to the entire team who persisted in playing three hit volleyball, against opposition who were not. We look forward to our final game and showing how our front court setting system is developing. Junior F – LOR 2 def MMK 0 (25-18, 25-20) - Another excellent game for the Junior F’s this week, defeating MMK 2 - 0. All girls worked cohesively together to set up some good rallies and showed a vast improvement in skills. There was fantastic front court attack, especially by Maggie Healy and Rose Owen. Well done girls!

Students are to wear their school sports uniform and cap to school and bring a shirt in their house colour to compete in. All students need to wear lace up running shoes. It is recommended that all students bring a water bottle. If there is rain forecast for Wednesday morning, all students please bring along your books and laptops for all lessons in case the event is called off in the morning.

The students were required to create works that reflected The Literal representation of Objects with in a variety of contexts. They experimented and explored different approaches to representing their selected “Object”. Some of their work is presented below.
