Volume 13 - 6 May, 2014 Dear Parents & Students

You will show me the path to life, abounding joy in your presence, the delights at your right hand forever. Psalm 16:11

I took this photo in 2006, at Mt Grace in North Yorkshire, whilst I was on sabbatical leave visiting the homeland of Mary Ward. The path at Mt Grace leads to the beautiful “Lady Chapel�. Christians have visited this Chapel of Our Lady for hundreds of years. It is a Holy Place, sanctified by the prayers of ordinary people who know the value of quiet prayer and time spent in reflection with God. The Shrine stands high on the hill above the village of Osmotherley and faces west out towards the Pennines.

The history of this Chapel, which dates back to 1397, records that in 1642, Mary Ward’s companions made a special pilgrimage to this Chapel to pray for Mary who was gravely ill at the time. Mary subsequently recovered from her illness and herself made a pilgrimage to the Chapel to pray in Thanksgiving. As we look to celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend we look to honour Mary; Our Lady; Our Beloved Mother. She is a source to us of great inspiration and guidance. We wish all Mothers great joy and happiness on Mother’s Day – thanking them for all they have given us. For Mothers we pray: MOTHER’S DAY PRAYER Thank you Lord for our Mothers. We make and take time to remember their loving care and enduring love for us. Help us always to be grateful for their goodness and thankful for their selfless care for us. May we show them, through our words and actions, our gratitude and that we care for and love them.

Amen.

THANK YOU I wish to express my thanks to the Year 11 students and teachers for their generous participation on last week’s Retreat. It was a privilege to be present with them and to be part of such an enriching experience. My genuine thanks to all the staff and my special thanks to Mrs Jan Kearney – Acting Deputy Religion for her overall coordination and leadership. CONGRATULATIONS 

To the Volleyball Teams on such a hugely successful season; winning not one but four premierships! Particular congratulations to Mia Page (Year 12), the Volleyball Captain, and Mrs Gore, the Coordinator, for their leadership, commitment and enthusiasm.

To Rebecca Marshall (Year 12) who competed so admirably as a finalist in the Nationals of the Lions Youth of the Year. She was an absolute credit to her family, school and State.

CONDOLENCES 

To Brigid Kelly (Year 12) on the recent passing of her Grandmother in Ireland. May Mary rest eternally in God’s embrace and loving care. Amen.

To Lauren Hinsch (Year 12) on the recent passing of her Grandfather, Alex Diatloff. We pray for his eternal peace in the company of all God’s angels and saints. Amen. Yours sincerely Cheryl Hamilton PRINCIPAL

2014 Queensland Core Skills (QCS) Test NAPLAN Testing Expression of interest — (Chief) community representative The Queensland Studies Authority (QSA) invites expressions of interest from community members to nominate for the position of chief community representative or community representative for the QCS Test. To maintain the accountability, security and proper conduct of the test, the QSA appoints members of the community to each test centre to complete duties on behalf of the QSA. These are paid positions. A test centre is a secondary school, or another place approved by the QSA, where students may sit the QCS Test. All test centres are located within Queensland and have a chief supervisor to administer the test on behalf of the QSA. This year the test will be held on Tuesday 2 September and Wednesday 3 September. For more information please email mckeonr@loreto.qld.edu.au How to apply Members of the community interested in applying for these positions should contact Robyn McKeon, Loreto College, to collect these documents: • Position description — (Chief) community representative • Application — (Chief) community representative • Declaration of undertaking — (Chief) community representative. Applications close 23 May 2014. The QSA will email appointment notices to successful applicants in late July.

NAPLAN Testing On Tuesday 13, Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 May, students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 will take part in the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy, or NAPLAN, as it is commonly known. Skills that will be tested include: reading, writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation, and numeracy. These tests are done here at school and are considered just another part of the curriculum. It is important for you and your child to know that NAPLAN is not a pass/fail test. It simply looks at what level students are achieving in literacy and numeracy against National Standards and compared with student peers throughout Australia. NAPLAN cannot be studied for and students are not expected to do so. The best way you can help your child prepare for NAPLAN is to let them know that it is just a routine part of their school program, and to urge them to do the best they can on the day. All students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 are expected to participate in NAPLAN testing. Later in the year we will send parents an individual student NAPLAN report that you can use to view and monitor how your child is progressing. More information is available on the NAP website http://www.nap.edu.au/naplan/naplan.html If you have any concerns, please contact Mr Pat Elsworthy, Deputy Principal – Curriculum.

Art Department Art has always reflected the times in which it was produced. Artists have a rich tradition of commenting on the issues which impact on the society in which they live. Images of animals have appeared in art from the Paleolithic bison and the cats of ancient Egypt to the metaphorical kangaroos in the work “Red, White and Blue” by contemporary Australian artist Danie Mellor. An excursion to the exhibition “Exotic Lies Sacred Ties” by Mellor was one of the inspirations for Year Ten art students as they were asked to use animals as metaphor in their response to social issues of concern to them. A Polar Bear is ‘slowly melting along with their environment”, an exotically patterned kitten reflects on child labour in the clothing industry and a bejeweled pig represents power and selfishness. These works reflect the students’ deep consideration and challenge the viewer to question these contemporary issues. Mrs L McCulkin - Art Coordinator

Geography Department Last week, Year 8 students combined their knowledge of rainforest and mapping skills with a field trip to Maleny. On Wednesday, 8 Green, White and Blue visited Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve accompanied by Ms Mathieson, Ms Quinlan and Ms Engler. The weather was picture perfect, which made up for the bus breaking down. Ms Mathieson took the opportunity to give the girls some roadside tuition, as the group waited for a replacement bus! On Friday, Ms Diamond and Ms Hereth braved the rain and leeches, to venture out with 8 Gold and Red. Special thanks to the Year 8 parents who volunteered to assist with the supervision of groups.

Legal Studies The Year 11 and 12 Legal Studies girls started Term 2 with an excursion to the Supreme Court of Brisbane. This was an opportunity for our budding legal students to see the Queensland legal system in action, sitting in on cases which included but were not limited to fraud, possession of dangerous drugs, unlawful use of vehicle, robbery and assault. Through visiting various courts throughout the day, the girls gained valuable insight into the various roles people play in the court process. Chris Rynne - Legal Studies Teacher

Careers News Allied Health Visit Last Wednesday, 30 Year 11 and 12 students visited the annual Princess Alexandra Allied Health Forum. This yearly event is a wonderful opportunity for students to hear from practitioners in fields such as Physiotherapy, Clinical Measurements Science, Audiology, Pharmacy, Music Therapy, Dietetics and Nutrition, Speech Pathology, Occupational Therapy and many more. The girls not only participated in an interactive forum, they spent time meeting and discussing possible future career options with specialists in their fields. Christ Rynne - Careers Coordinator

SCIPS (School Community Industry Partnership Service) SCIPS will hold its annual School Leaver Event on Wednesday 20 August. This is an evening where employers and providers will be available to speak personally with students about their aspirations and their suitability for employment and training opportunities. Students and parents are encouraged to attend the evening to gain current advice, face-to-face contact with employers, and to position themselves for opportunities as they come up. As employers have again committed to this event, students will need to register for the evening. See the flyer at the back of the newsletter for details of venue and time. Registrations must be completed by 16 June 2014 to enable SCIPS to match student aspirations to employer opportunities. Please see Mrs Cuskelly for registration forms. Chris Cuskelly - Industry Placement Coordinator

Maths News The term has started well with a number of girls taking advantage of “Maths Help� room. Just a reminder that all students are welcome each morning from 7:30 am till 8:15am for that little extra help with concepts or problems. See you there! Mr Corrado - Mathematics Coordinator

Co-Curricular Music Concert Change The starting time for the Autumn Concert on 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. The Friday 9 May concert will still run from 6pm with students needing to arrive by 5:30pm. Please carefully read the Concert Information (including supply of supper, arrival times, warm-up venues and uniform instructions) that is attached to this newsletter for more information. Big Band Could all parents of students in the Big Band please note that rehearsal WILL be on this Friday 9 May as normal (day of the first Autumn Concert). The school will provide all students in the Big Band with dinner of pizza and drinks at the end of rehearsal, as there will be insufficient time for them to go home between rehearsal and concert arrival. Concert Bands One & 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 last week and heats start this week. 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

Public Speaking Lions Youth of the Year A hum was evident about 100 metres away. Then came the buzz that grew louder the nearer we approached TRECC (Tamworth Convention Centre). Hearing that there were 1300 plus people in attendance is one thing. Seeing them seated in this cavernous room is another! Imagine you are 17 years. Imagine how you would feel addressing all these people. This was real for Rebecca Marshall (Year 12) last Saturday. Her two impromptu questions were: 

Your generation is facing an ageing population. How are you going to manage it?

If you are to prosper, what responsibility does that bring?

Rebecca then presented her memorised speech on Social Media. Prior to this, Rebecca was interviewed on local, state and federal politics and issues, world news and current societal trends. She was also judged on her conversational skills in different social settings, her manners and her presentation. Rebecca managed the three days of intense scrutiny confidently and graciously. She represented Loreto College Coorparoo beautifully and we are very proud of her and what she has achieved. All six state contestants were outstanding; however, a young gentleman from West Australia (Christian Brothers College Fremantle) won the national title. Rebecca, congratulations on a truly impressive performance! Rostrum Well done to the girls who entered Rostrum on the weekend: Amelia Abdelrazek, Aislind Bell, Kaitlin Carey, Madison Cooley, Sophia Dabinett, Lauren Michael, Priyanka Mirchandani, Morgan O’Neill, Alexandra White, Austen Whitewood, Taylor Whitewood and Frances Wong. We wish to thank the following teachers who listened to the girls on the days before. Their time and feedback were greatly appreciated. They are: Mr McAlinden, Ms Diamond, Ms Carty, Mrs Anderson, Ms Hatchman, Ms McKeown. Congratulations to Sophia Dabinett, Taylor Whitewood and Alexandra White who won their rounds! Reserves are: Amelia Abdelrazek and Austen Whitewood. Rosemary O’Neill - Public Speaking Coordinator

Year 10 Marist Dancing - Missed Lesson Marist Dancing will continue Tuesday night with the students due at Loreto at 6.30pm to be marked off and arriving back at Loreto at 9.30pm to be collected by parents. The Marist Ashgrove teachers have expressed their apologies regarding the cancellation of the lesson last week. The three schools involved are negotiating changes to try to accommodate the missed lesson. When an agreement is reached, communication will be sent to parents regarding the changes. There is still one permanent position available for any Year 10 student who wishes to attend the dancing lessons. We are also seeking reserve students to fill in for students on May 13. Any interested students should see Ms Davidson to collect a permission form. Michelle Davidson - Year 10 Coordinator
