12 July 2012

Dear Members of the St Patrick’s Family Welcome back to Term 3 and I hope that you and your families had an enjoyable holiday break. During the break there was much activity at the school level. Firstly, for those who have driven past the College in the last couple of weeks, you will notice that the old drama house and Troy Horse have been removed and a clean site has been left. The removal of these buildings is part of the College’s Masterplan and although no building is planned in the near future this site will be where the College will build over the next two or three years. Secondly, there were a number of activities over the holidays. The cross country camp was very successful with large numbers of students and staff involved. The Confraternity Rugby League Carnival was very successful despite the rain. There was a large number of students, staff and parents involved with assisting the carnival. Finally the Open and Under 15 basketball teams travelled to Sydney for the EREA Basketball Tournament. To all students, staff and parents who assisted with any of these activities over the holidays I thank you very much. This term we welcome a number of new students to the College and I know that they will be well supported in their journey at St Patrick’s College. We also welcome Mr Simon Wells (replacing Mr Bernie Haughey on long service leave) and Miss Brooke McInnes (ESL teacher) to the College. Sadly we farewell Mr John Cross, who will leave St Patrick’s College in a couple of weeks. John has been a valued member of the St Patrick’s College Community during his time on staff. I thank him for his contributions, particularly as Rice House Dean and wish him the best in his future journey. The selection of the new Rice House Dean will take place over the next couple of weeks. Term 3 is a critical term for all students and it is very important that students begin their focus on school work from week 1. Homework, assignments and regular study is critical throughout this term. Semester 1 reports were posted during the holidays with parent teacher meetings scheduled for next Monday (16 July). If you have any queries regarding your son’s progress I encourage you to make contact with your son’s teachers early this term. Over the next few weeks the College has a number of special events planned including Co-Curricular Assembly, Spirit Assembly, Academic Assembly, Grandparents Mass, Tutor Group Photos and Parent Teacher Interviews. Information regarding these events are in the College calendar and more details will be made available via the Calling in subsequent weeks. I do wish to draw your attention to two special events. The first is the presentation by Celia Lashlie on Wednesday 18 July. Celia is a world renowned presenter on boys and this journey through adolescence. She is a very entertaining presenter and with the support of the Parents and Friends we are able to host Celia at St Patrick’s College. The second event I wish to highlight is the 60 Year Gala Dinner on Saturday 4 August. This week I have sent a letter and invitation to all families for the Gala Dinner. It will be a fantastic night and I hope that many families, past, present and future can attend. Bookings can be made by phoning the College Office on 3631 9000. We need to finalise bookings by Friday 27 July so be quick. I would like to extend the College’s deepest condolences to Jann Bebb (staff member) and son’s Daniel (Year 12) and Troy (2010) on the passing of Gordon, their husband and father. Please keep the Bebb family in your prayers at this time.. Finally this week I encourage all families to take an active interest in their son’s educational journey during this term. The ongoing support by parents is a critical factor in determining the success for young people. The PARTNERSHIP between here and school is a critical factor for success at St Patrick’s College.

Have a great term God Bless

Curriculum Leader Justice & Peace

St Patrick’s College A UN Global Peace School As part of the St. Patrick’s College community, you are no doubt aware of the fantastic work our students and teachers do in the areas of justice and peace. As a Catholic school in the Edmund Rice tradition, we promote a vision of a just society that is grounded in the Bible. The last few years has seen a transformation in the College Curriculum to embed more of these somewhat challenging themes across all subjects. Church, nutrition and homelessness, the state of immunisation in India, and human trafficking are some prime examples. St. Patrick’s College has embarked upon a bid to become part of the Save the Children Global Peace School Program. This is an initiative developed by the United Nations. Through official involvement in the program we seek to further promote dispositions, values and actions that contribute to building a culture of peace and respect for children’s rights in the classroom, school and wider community. Students will be engaged as ambassadors for peace and advocates for the Rights of the Child.

AP Identity Grandparents Liturgy On Thursday 26 July at 11am the College will be holding a Grandparents Liturgy followed by a light lunch. We would like to extend an invitation to all Grandparents of St Patrick’s College students to attend this special Liturgy and light lunch . If you are able to attend, please refer to the letter on page 4 and return the rsvp slip to Mrs Helen Righetti in the Student Office or call her on 3631 9014 by Thursday 19 July

Mr Tim Walker Accreditation does require a whole school approach. The College Mission Statement and many long term college structures promote us as being a prime candidate. The College’s pastoral care system seeks to foster right relationships through initiatives such as ‘big brothers’ and a strong anti-bullying message. In the application we are seeking to draw on the outstanding service St Patrick’s provides to our community through the Paddies Van and associated service learning programs. Our continued partnership with local Aboriginal elders and community members, and college retreats and immersions will also address key criteria. The initial evaluation outlined a key focus for St. Patrick’s to develop before achieving accreditation. That is, the teaching of the “UN Convention of the Rights of the Child”. Over the coming weeks, College Assemblies will follow this theme. Assemblies will begin with the teaching of the rights (and responsibilities) of the child and a strong justice and peace message through the opening prayer. Students in Mooney and O’Rourke house will be presenting these with the guidance of their tutor group teacher. As a community, many of us are aware of the admirable work our College does in the areas of justice and peace. On September 21 2012, St. Patrick’s College aims to celebrate becoming Queensland’s first UN Global Peace School!

Year 9 English Skills Workbook

Year 8 & 9 SOSE Big Ideas Textbooks

The 2012 stationery list for Year 9 contained a Macmillan English Skills Workbook. The publishing date for the book was pushed back and we worked with page proof information from the text for Semester 1. The book has now been released and the publishers have made us aware that backorders made through Direct Stationery at Geebung will be sent to the school this week. Some students may have purchased the text through the local newsagent – you will need to follow up on this personally.

Year 8 and 9 SOSE students need to return the Big Ideas Humanities I (Year 8) and Big Ideas Humanities II (Year 9) textbooks to the library please by no later than Wednesday 18 July.

We are aware that a significant number of students did not purchase the text through Direct Stationery. Please be aware that the workbook is a required text for students in Year 9 and they will require this for English classes ASAP. Could you please make arrangements to purchase the text through your preferred supplier ASAP – most newsagents will need to order the book. Ms Zoe Morgan

Basketball Coordinator EREA Basketball Tour During the last week of holidays 20 students from St Patrick’s represented the College in the Edmund Rice Education Australia annual basketball tournament hosted by St Dominic’s, Penrith, NSW. The standard of competition was extremely competitive yet all boys represented the College and themselves to the fullest of their abilities. At no stage did the boys drop their heads and the Senior Team managed to enjoy wins over Waverley College (VIC) and Gregory Terrace (QLD). All boys who attended the tour are to be commended on their behaviour both on and off the courts and special thanks must go to Dr Michael Carroll and Mr Richard Saunders for volunteering their time.

AIC/CIC Basketball Training Training for all CIC teams commenced on Tuesday and will be held at the College every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon for the remainder of the season. Year 5 and 6 teams may have lunch time training sessions at the discretion of their respective coaches, information regarding year 5 and year 6 training times will be sent home this week. AIC training commences on the 24th of July and is held every Tuesday and Thursday at Boondall entertainment Center from 3:30pm – 5:00pm If boys have signed on to play they are expected to attend all training sessions and games or communicate any difficulties with their respective coaches. It is not acceptable to simply fail to show up to training or games without prior notification; boys are to make every effort to fulfill their basketball responsibilities. Please continue to regularly check both student and parental email accounts for more information regarding Basketball in 2012. If you have any questions or concerns regarding Basketball please contact me directly: or phone 3631 9028 or 0435 869 131.

SPC Basketball Uniform TRAINING All boys are required to wear their college P.E. uniform or Basketball uniform, at no stage are boys allowed to wear other club singlet’s, NBA singlet’s, rugby jersey’s etc. If boys are found wearing the incorrect uniform they will be asked to sit out of training which may affect selection chances. If boys are continually found wearing the wrong uniform they may lose the opportunity to represent the college in basketball, I ask for all parents support with this matter. GAMES Boys are permitted to wear the College P.E. uniform during the initial trials but all boys are required to have a college basketball singlet by round one. Boys are permitted to wear college P.E. shorts during games so long as all pockets have zips. SPC basketball shorts are available for purchase from the uniform shop if desired. 12 | St Patrick’s College Calling
