Father’s Day Breakfast

FROM THE HEADMASTER Dear Parents, Students and Friends, I am writing this on Father’s Day after coming home from breakfast at the local café with my family. I am very proud of my children. They often remind me that they only succeeded because of the hard work of their Mother. I accept this. My Father’s name was Bernie and he passed away too young. He grew up in Crows Nest and married my mother in St. Leonard’s Church, Naremburn. My strong memory of my Father is at the dinner table. Dad had a great love of family and this was shared at every meal. Our dinner table had a lot of laughter and talk. My friends were always welcome at home. Dad was a North Sydney Bears fan and my earliest memory is of attending games with him at North Sydney Oval. Dad also had a second team Manly. Unfortunately, Norths had never won a premiership in his lifetime so he needed a second team that could be competitive. Dad loved sports and people. He was strong in his faith. We were lucky to have such a good man in our lives. Father, I thank you for the gift of my family for whom I now pray and upon whom I now ask you to shower your blessings. With St. Joseph as my guide, may I always be ready to spend my life for them. Bless my children with your life and presence. May the example of your son be the foundation upon which their lives are built, that the Gospel may always be their hope and support. I ask you, Father, to protect and bless my family. Watch over it so that in the strength of your love its members may enjoy prosperity, possess the gift of your peace and, as the Church alive in this home, always bear witness to your glory in the world. Amen.


FATHER’S DAY BREAKFAST This was a great event. Our P&F committee members consisting of Claire Manning, Elizabeth Byrne, Rob Geeves and their great supporters are to be congratulated on having 540 fathers, guardians and sons present. The gathering was efficient, well organised and the breakfast was served via six queues was very enjoyable. Thanks to Mr Andy Hills (Father of Zac, 7 Salta) for organising our guest speaker, Mr Shane Richardson, CEO of the Rabbitohs. Shane joined the Rabbitohs in 2004, when the club was in severe financial difficulties. He and his team over the years have rebuilt the club’s financial viability and the club now boasts the largest membership in the NRL and is one of few clubs to be in profit. Shane spoke to our students and said that it was hard work in life that make the difference. He said that each student will receive a different ATAR at the end of the HSC. The boys will go on to all types of professions from barristers to cleaners. What really matters is how hard they work in their lives. This is the statement that they make with their lives. It is through hard work that they indicate their own self worth and gain the respect of others. ARCHBISHOP’S AWARD The Archbishop of Sydney Awards are for student excellence and is presented to one student from Year 12 from each Catholic school in Sydney. It recognises outstanding young men and women in our Catholic schools and highlights their positive contribution that this young person has made to their school and community. Cian Byrne (12 Salta) received the Award on Friday at St. Mary’s Cathedral. Cian is a young man who has always display a positive and determined attitude towards his studies. He is an active member of the school community being involved in musicals, debating, solidarity and charity events. Cian has been described as man of integrity, character and honesty who lives his life with an open commitment to his faith. We congratulate Cian. Tony Duncan Headmaster


YEAR 12 I would like to commend our current Year 12 students in their attitude as they have and continue to display in completing their HSC assessment tasks and preparation for their upcoming exams. I have had the pleasure over the last few weeks to hear our musicians perform and witness the innovative works of the Design & Technology and Visual Arts students. Combine this with the entertaining performances of the Drama students and the talents of the Industrial Technology students, their abundant skills and talent are clearly evident.

(L-R): Keenan Singh (2014 Captain), Luke Gallen (2015 Captain), Hamish Buchanan (2015 Vice Captain, Mr Tony Duncan

Last Wednesday at our Headmasters Assembly, Mr. Duncan announced to the College that the College Captain for 2015 is Luke Gallen from the Moore House. Furthermore, for the first time the College will have a Vice Captain and that honour has been bestowed to Hamish Buchanan, also from the Moore House. Both Luke and Hamish are focused and motivated young men with a strong sense of what it means to be Marist. They set themselves high standards, and have strong morals. They are well respected by both staff and their peers and I am sure they will work as a team with the Senior Leaders to foster the fine traditions of the College.

HOUSE STRUCTURE 2015 The College as indicated in a recent letter from the Headmaster, Mr. Duncan, that the decision has been made to move to six Houses in 2015. Pastoral Care is central in supporting the wellbeing of each student. A key element of effective Pastoral Care is knowing, understanding and developing a rapport with students. Thus, reducing the number of students in each House from over 200 to approximately 140 will allow the College to be authentic in its approach to the Pastoral Care of all students. As a result, there will be some changes to various elements of College life that the establishing of six Houses will bring. We intend to keep students and parents informed of how these change will occur through High Notes and via email.

Many of the boys have formed study groups at school in the Library and have been wonderful role models in displaying support for each others learning. As Year 12 are now approaching the end of their schooling, they have been reminded of the importance of staying focused. They have normal classes up until Graduation Day which is Friday 19th September. At a recent meeting the point was made that this is a time for reflection and review. Perseverance was a word that was discussed as each student was challenged to achieve their best. WALKATHON, FATHER’S DAY BREAKFAST & THANKS The College recently has enjoyed two of our significant community events. The College Walkathon and the Father’s Day Breakfast were outstanding successes and epitomised the wonderful family spirit that is present at Marist. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many parents who gave so much of their time and effort in assisting in making these events the wonderful occasions they were.

David Forrester Deputy Headmaster

On Wednesday 3rd September, our Year 9 Religion class celebrated the Sacrament of Reconciliation in the Faith Formation room. The event was presided over by Father Michael, with assistance of Mr. Munro and Mrs. Dunne. The celebration started with some words from Father Michael and then readings from students within the class. While music was being played we were asked to reflect on issues relating to our own lives. We were then given the opportunity to participate in the individual Rite of Reconciliation with Father Michael. This whole process was a very relaxing and reflective experience and is part of our current topic we are studying which deals with the concept of healing.

HSIE YEAR 7 GEOGRAPHY BLUE MOUNTAINS EXCURSION Fieldwork is an important part of the study of Geography and caters for a variety of learning styles. Year 7 Geography students used this geographical tool to increase their understanding of the ‘Investigating the World’ topic they are currently studying by visiting the Blue Mountains (Chanel, Kelly & Salta on 28th July and (Ludovic & Moore on 30th July 2014). An area of one million hectares of vast, ancient and spectacular national park and wilderness, dominated by temperate eucalypt forest, the Blue Mountains was formally inscribed on the World Heritage List on 29th November 2000 marking the formation of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.

Students went on a guided tour of the area, investigating the physical and human elements of the area. They also took a ride into the valley using the Scenic Railway. At a 52 degree incline, the Scenic Railway is the steepest passenger train in the world. Back in the classroom students were asked to think about the discoveries that they made while out ‘in the field’ and produce a fieldwork report which formed part of their first assessment task.

The day began with a visit to Echo Point Katoomba, where students observed the Blue Mountains’ most spectacular landmark, the Three Sisters and Mount Solitary rising above the Jamison Valley. Students completed a fieldwork activity worksheet, which included drawing a sketch based on what they were seeing. While Geography students do not need to be skilled artists, they do need to know how to draw simple sketches of landscapes and students were able to develop this skill during the excursion. Students were also given a talk about Echo Point and heard an Aboriginal story about the Three Sisters. Students gave a loud “Coo-eee” towards the Three Sisters to hear exactly why it is called Echo Point. After lunch, students visited Scenic World which gave them the opportunity to explore an environment where modern engineering, breathtaking scenery and ancient rainforests merge to create an unforgettable experience. 6

The excursion was a most enjoyable educational experience enabling students to appreciate a wonderful part of God’s creation. Thankyou to the staff at Scenic World for contributing to the education of our young Geographers and to Mr. Taylor, Mr. Kulk, Mr. Moysa and Ms. Cotte who supervised the students on the excursion. Joe Alvaro Assistant Leader of Learning - HSIE

TAS YEAR 9 CAKE BOSS Students in Year 9 Food Technology recently studied a unit titled ‘Food for Special Occasions’. They looked at food choices and preparation techniques and its significance to mark special occasions throughout different cultures and times. As part of their assessment, the young entrepreneurs/chefs were required to plan, prepare, present and evaluate food solutions for specific purposes.

They were introduced to some basic cake decorating techniques where they were then asked to design and create a novelty cake to meet their client needs. The students interpretation to the brief ranged from a whimsical Willy Wonka cake to creating a novelty cake to mark Dante, the avid basketballer’s, 14th birthday. Congratulations on all your efforts Year 9! Sally Kim TAS


CREATIVE ARTS CULTURAL ‘ARTS’ WEEK 2014 Term 3, Week 7 is traditionally a cultural celebration of the creative and performing arts activities at the College.

The performances caused considerable talk and enthusiasm for Drama and Shakespeare. The Cultural Assembly on Wednesday 27th August provided affirmation to the many students and staff involved in the 2014 Musical “Guys and Dolls” and the College Band Ensembles. Many certificates were presented and the highlight was a film showing all things cultural at the College this year and the Year 12 Music performances. In 2015, there will be a continuation of the Creative & Performing Arts (CAPA) with teachers providing opportunities for all students to embrace the arts.
