Dear Members of the St Patrick’s Family, ‘The Band of Brothers Concert’. What an afternoon! The sounds of Amy Meredith and the various support bands filtered around the Shorncliffe area throughout Sunday afternoon as 1000 people enjoyed the beautiful sunshine and picnic atmosphere on the back oval. The concert was a great success and I thank all involved in making the afternoon so wonderful. In particular I thank Kath Richardson for her outstanding effort. Kath was the mastermind, co-ordinator and the driving force for the event and on behalf of all the St. Patrick’s College Community I thank you most sincerely. This Friday night another great spectacular event takes place. Showcase, one of the premier events on our Cultural Calendar begins at 6pm in the Callan Centre. Again this year, a ‘Big Screen’ will be placed on the back oval so families can enjoy watching the House Choir under the stars. I remind families that no chairs are permitted on the oval so bring along a rug or sit up on the Callan centre stairs. A bbq will be operating and entry is by a Gold coin donation. This Friday, as well as being Showcase, it is also Green and Gold day. This year the proceeds from the Green and Gold Day will go to the Breast Cancer Foundation. Elliot Schultz, Year 5 is an official fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Foundation. Elliot spoke at the College Assembly and will have Breast Cancer material for sale on Friday. The Parents and Friends Annual General Meeting was held on Wednesday Night. I congratulate the new committee for 2011. They are: President: Vice President: Treasurer: Secretary:

Mr Malcolm Steele Mr Peter Frauenfelder Mrs Lesley Palmer Mrs Maxine Nott

I also wish to take this opportunity to thank Diane Hamill who completed her second term as President. Diane finishes at St. Patrick’s College this year. However, over many years Diane has been an excellent president of the P & F and has ensured that the P & F supports the College in many ways. Thank you Diane very much. Next Tuesday night, 26 October, the Celia Lashlie presentation will be held in the Callan Centre. Celia is a world renowned author and speaker on boys. Tickets are available from the College Office. Next Thursday, the Trimester 3 Co-curricular Awards Assembly will be held in the Callan Centre beginning at 8.30am. I extend an invitation to all families to attend. Finally this week I have much pleasure in announcing that the Campus Ministers for 2011 are Ms Marthy Watson and Mr Paul Corfield. They will further strengthen the ministry team in 2011. Have a great weekend. See you at Showcase. God Bless

COLLEGE DEAN David Gardiner I really enjoyed the Band of Brothers Arvo on The Oval on Sunday. There was such a wonderful atmosphere and it was great to see people of all ages having fun on the day. One aim of the day was to provide a positive day for the Seniors who have lead by example in a difficult year. It was very pleasing to hear the Seniors comment that ‘there is a great feel’; “Amy Meredith were really good”, “It was a good day”. Hopefully it was a bright spot amongst a very hectic time for our students. Well done Kath Richardson. Our Celebration of Excellence evening is on Friday 5 November. All families are invited to attend and share our story and successes in 2010. The list of award

winners is presently on my office windows and I encourage all students to check if they are receiving an award. It will be our last major whole College event for the year and I encourage all families to join us for the celebration. The cyclic nature of schools continued strongly this week with our 2011 Orientation process beginning. Over 200 new students were involved in an information evening as well as literacy, numeracy and music testing on two different days. The young men were very excited to find out which music instrument they will have in 2011, which House they will be in and who their Big Brother will be. The testing will provide another bit of

valuable information for our staff to provide the best possible programs and support. The Student Free Day on Monday was very productive with a large variety of tasks and inservices completed by the staff. Amongst a number of sessions for the Year 5-7 staff was one focusing on analysing the St Patrick’s 2010 NAPLAN results. Overall the results are very positive but the classroom teachers were able to identify specific areas that we can further develop. This type of review and planning will help ensure we continue to offer the best opportunities for each of our students.

STUDIES Chris Carlill identification processes to assess needs and develop individual education plans. This practice is moving more and more into the general mainstream of teaching and learning. Many teachers now employ techniques and processes that first identify the area or areas wherein Learners have special needs and/or learning difficulties. Then, teachers address these challenges with a customized learning support solution.

What is Happening in Today’s Schools I recently revisited an article about the ways in which schools are changing in the new century. Below is a selected summary of key issues relating to this process of change, as argued by educator, Pamela Wheaton Shorr.

The very definition of "school" is changing. Schools are no longer just buildings with street addresses. Schools are featuring more and more in hyperspace, located by their domain names. As well as “traditional” classroom activities, schools now offer a blended online/offline curriculum to support changes in the way that people access and use information. Schools are using some specialneeds tools to benefit all Learners. Educators who support Learners with special needs use very specific

Teachers are also becoming more confident in researching and locating curriculum and remediation materials not only in textbooks and workbooks, but via digital media and online resources.

Learners actually want a longer school day. Students spend extra hours on subjects outside of the classroom, interacting with diverse media,

information services, and information management devices. For these learners the “real learning” is independent and self-paced, unfettered by the constraints of the traditional classroom that requires conformity and consistency in the rate and mode of teaching and learning. If these demands could be met at school, then learners would stay longer and be more engaged.

Learners are driving instructional practice. Learners want access to hardware and software resources that guarantees independent learning. They want high-speed Internet access and assignments that integrate technology, and they will become disengaged if schools do not reduce the gulf between home and school with regard to these advances

seek professional development opportunities. Our learners bring new ideas and demands to our classrooms each day and they often become the teachers. This means that 2011 will see changes in the way that we all The St. Patrick’s College Curriculum, and conceptualise schooling today. the staff who are responsible for its delivery, are keenly aware of the need to Sources: be aware of change, identify aspects of Wheaton Shorr, P. (2006) 10 Surprising change that can be accommodated, and Things About Today’s Schools, Scholastic Teachers, also, are inclined to support more enhanced project-based, problem-based, and inquiry-based learning, incorporating diverse multimedia tools.

IDENTITY & MINISTRY Mark Ellison It’s now just over two months until Christmas, and judging by the stock in the big department stores around the place, people have started buying already. This year, as you start thinking about your Christmas shopping, why not consider one of the huge range of gifts now available that are not only nice for your family and friends, but which also greatly benefit poor and disadvantaged individuals and whole communities as well as our earth. Just Coffey and Greeting Cards As you are no doubt aware, Coffey House’s international charity project is to support the Just Coffee range from East Timor. St Patrick’s has continued to develop its relationship with the villages of East Timor, and we continue to hear reports of the life changing improvements this project is having on them. You may not be aware that a group of 32 women from the same villages have also been making some beautiful greeting cards which we also have for sale at the school. Some of these women walk up to two hours each way to make these cards and the little money they make from this venture is their only form of income and is again making a huge difference to the lives of their families. There is a flyer later in this Calling promoting a range of special Christmas gift packs available through the Just Coffey network. Fair Trade Your choice of Christmas gifts this year, could either reward and reinforce exploitation of workers in

underdeveloped nations, or they could help to reward and reinforce fair and just working conditions, and allow workers to break the cycle of poverty. The entire range of products at Oxfam shops are all fair trade. If you’ve never been to a store why not check it out at Chermside, Brisbane City or Garden City. Alternatively, visit the Oxfam shop online at Other suppliers of fair trade and other ethical gifts include New Internationalist: , Etiko Sports and Fashion: , Tribes and Nations: http:// , or you can buy some beautifully made goods produced by rescued sex slaves in Cambodia at http:// A greater list of Fair Trade products and suppliers can be found at the Fair Trade Association of Australia and New Zealand at Eco-gifts There are also a growing range of environmentally friendly gifts. A good starting point is the Biome store at Paddington or . If you are looking for books, I guarantee you cannot beat . This organisation not only has an enormous range of cheap second-hand books, but also gives employment to disadvantaged people, and its profits fund global literacy programs. Remember, probably the best ecofriendly gift you can give is a tree or a

plant. Gifts that Give Twice The gift I’d like Santa to stick in my sack this year is one of the range of gifts available which are actually given to individuals and communities in poor parts of the world on your loved ones’ behalf. These gifts include things such as seeds, mosquito nets, chickens, pigs, water purification, teacher training, toilets, immunisations, early learning for Indigenous students, or even a whole stable of animals. There are a number of organisations you can get these gifts from including World Vision: http:// GiftCatalogue/Default.aspx , Oxfam Unwrapped: http:// , and Caritas Australia: https:// Section=Global_Gifts . Vinnies / Salvos Finally, don’t be too proud to get something from an Op Shop such as Vinnies, the Salvos, Lifeline or Endos. By shopping at these stores you are not only helping the environment by buying recycled goods, but each year sales at these stores provide thousands of meals and other services, as well as providing employment and a sense of purpose for the homeless and other disadvantaged members of society. Let’s make this Christmas a very merry, and a very ethical one too. God bless

Mark Mewburn Most of our seniors are feeling quite positive about where 2011 will take them. Apprenticeship & traineeships are waiting. University and TAFE pathways have been chosen and applied for (with good back up plans in place). ANY senior who is feeling uncertain, fearful, lost or simply “hoping that things will fall into place” should be doing something about this NOW. Phil Webb & Barbara Moody are in possession of lots of information on a wide variety of options. I am focusing mostly on the University and TAFE options but also distribute the quite regular “THE END” e-newsletter that is packed with information on Job Offers, University/ TAFE updates & ideas…even some useful General Information that is applicable for all seniors.

YEAR 11 Students: Applications for the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) are open for the 2012 intake.

Additionally, current year 11 students who apply now are eligible for the ADFA Education Award. The winners receive a laptop computer with no obligation to join ADFA after year 12. http:// adfa/default.aspx The ADF are offering an information night on WEDNESDAY 27 October at 6pm at Defence Forces Recruiting Centre – Level 11 East

CRICKET CO-ORDINATOR—GEOFF PAULSEN CIC and AIC Term 4 CRICKET PRE SEASON The SPC Cricket Department has established a pre season schedule to commence in Term 4 and run over a period of three weeks. There will be a focus on a certain cricketing skill each week, with sessions to be coordinated by year level ‘A’ coaches, SPC Specialist coaches and Cricket Coordinator Geoff Paulsen. The First XI Cricket Squad will also be involved. In the past we have relied on holiday cricket camps run over a day or two at Curlew Park. This new pre season format will replace these camps and will give the SPC Cricketers a more structured and beneficial pre season format. The pre season will commence on Monday 1st of November. Each age group will only train on one day per week. Students will train in the year levels/ age groups they are currently in for 2010. This is including new students coming into the College next year.
