18 August 2011
Dear Members of the St Patrick’s Family, Next week there are a number of important events taking place. Firstly, on Monday representatives from St Patrick’s College will attend the launch of the Charter for Edmund Rice Schools. The Charter has been remodelled and will form the basis for what underpins a Catholic School in the Edmund Rice Tradition. Following Monday’s launch each school will have their own launch at a time that is relevant for them. I will keep the College community informed about this through The Calling. Also next week we will be having our OPEN DAY on Tuesday 23 August. Along with Open Day, the Arts Festival and Battle of the Bands will be taking place. Each of these events display the breadth of opportunities and talent that exists at St Patrick’s. The Open Day is for both new families and our existing families, so I encourage you to come along and see the school in operation. The Open Day is from 3.00 – 6.00m, with the Arts Festival open during this time and the Battle of the Bands commencing at 6.00pm. I hope to see you there. Classes will finish at 2.00pm and students will be dismissed at 2.00pm on Tuesday. The Spirit Assembly for Tennis and Basketball will be held on Thursday 25 August commencing at 8.35am. Everyone is welcome. Last Tuesday night the Year 12 Formal was held and it was an excellent evening. My congratulations to the young men on their conduct and I thank the staff that were responsible for the evening, in particular Mr Torrisi and Mrs Fowlie. It was a great night. At the College Assembly this week a representative from the Australian Defence Force presented Liam Polkinghorne with the ADFA Education Award. This award was one of only a small number presented to students across Australia and was in recognition of Liam’s outstanding performance, both at school and in the preparatory testing that Liam has undertaken in preparation for his entry to ADFA next year. Congratulations Liam. In last week’s Calling I mentioned the subject selection processes that have been occurring for both the Year 8 and 10 students. The decisions are important ones for the students and require students and parents to be well informed about what subjects are available and importantly what subjects are appropriate for them. Included in the selection process are information meetings for students and parents, a Careers Expo and Interview Day for Year 10 students and their parents. I thank the staff who have been involved in coordinating this process, especially Mr Campbell and Mrs Nott. Finally, this week can I remind parents about two issues. The first relates to drop off/pick up and parking. Please follow the road rules, be considerate of our neighbours and watchful of the students on the roads. Please avoid double parking, driving in Twamley Street and stopping on the zebra crossing in Park Parade. There will be work starting on the crossing in Park Parade soon so please be careful. The Police and the Brisbane City Council will be monitoring cars and booking people not complying with the regulations. Secondly, I again encourage parents to communicate with the staff at the College if there are concerns. I believe that the best way to resolve any issues is to have positive and open communication. If you have concerns talk with us. We will also talk with you if we have concerns. Have a great week. God Bless
Dr Michael Carroll College Principal
23 AUGUST, 2011 3.00PM TO 6.00PM BY THE BATTLE OF THE BANDS
COLLEGE DEAN DAVID GARDINER The College Open Day will be held next Tuesday, 23 August. Our young men are our best advertisement. It is a great opportunity for our students to showcase themselves, the work they do, and the Collegeâ€™s facilities. I would like all parents to strongly encourage their sons to stay back after school next Tuesday and assist with the Open Day. It is a great opportunity for students to complete some work plus to help create a positive environment for all the visitors. All sections of the College will be operating and students can assist by being a Tour Guide around the College facilities and/or working in a particular curriculum area. Hopefully the afternoon can be a win-win situation for the students. They may have a Design and Technology project to work on in the workshops, or a SOSE assignment to complete, or some Maths homework to finish. Whatever the task it will be great to have as many students as possible involved in the Open Day.
CURRICULUM ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL CURRICULUMâ€” CHRIS CAMPBELL
On Monday evening I spoke to the parents and students of Year 10 regarding the subject selection process. Information was given on both the Queensland Certificate of Education as well as the online subject selection program. All members of staff who were present, were greatly impressed by the large turnout to this evening. It was encouraging to see so many parents and boys remaining behind after the presentations to speak to the Heads of Curriculum. This afternoon Mr Celegato and I spoke to students in Year 8 about their subject selection process. All Year 8 students should have brought home both a subject selection booklet along with their user name and password for the online subject selection process. Please ask your sons to see these two documents. Year 8 students are asked to select their elective subjects for Year 9 and 10. On Monday 22 August, there will be an Information Night for Year 8 parents and boys in the Callan Centre commencing at 7.00pm. Year 12 students have only two weeks remaining until the all important QCS Test. The four papers will be held on Tuesday 30 August and Wednesday 31 August. Could I ask parents to check with their sons to see if they have signed the calculator declaration. Anyone who has not done so must see me ASAP. After the completion of the QCS, Year 12s move into their end of term exam block. In order to allow Heads of Curriculum time to compile district panel verification submissions, these exams will finish at the end of the second last week. This means all Year 12s are required for normal classes in the last week of term. Work for Term 4 will commence in this week. Also, on the Monday of the final week, September 12, students will be spoken to by Mrs Rotta regarding QTAC applications which close during the end of term vacation on September 30. All Year 12s have been issued with a QTAC booklet and they are asked to have it with them on Monday the 12th. On Tuesday September 13, there will be an Information Evening for parents and students of Year 12s on how to make a QTAC application. Page 2
STUDENTS ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL STUDENT FORMATION — FRANK TORRISI YEAR 12 FORMAL The Seniors enjoyed a special night on Tuesday with their formal held at the Mercure Hotel in the City. It was certainly a night of celebration seeing our young men in their finest. Their behaviour was outstanding and did both their family and the College proud. I would especially like to thank Mrs Sandra Fowlie for her outstanding effort in organising the formal. Sandra spent endless hours liaising with the Mercure, sending out letters, organising lists, chasing boys for table groupings and partners’ names and organising all the little details to ensure the boys had a wonderful time. INTER-HOUSE ATHLETICS All students are expected to attend and participate in the Annual Athletics Carnival tomorrow (Friday, 19 August). Students must wear full sports uniform and go directly to Curlew Park on the day. The carnival will commence at 8.30am and conclude at 3.00pm. Parents are most welcome to come and watch or help out with timekeeping and judging. Students will be dismissed from Curlew Park. Buses will drop off and collect students from Curlew Park. The aim of the carnival is to promote participation, House spirit and fun. This is a Special Event Day so students absent from school must have a medical certificate or completed Absence Declaration Form. If this procedure is not followed students will be given a Saturday detention. Injured students will be allocated a job to help on the day. Being part of a community has many positives outcomes. Being a part of events such as the Inter-House Athletics Carnival is a healthy component of your son’s education at St Patrick’s. Please do not allow your son to take a soft option and opt out of the carnival.
MOBILE PHONES I would like to remind parents of procedures regarding mobile phones at St Patrick’s. Students are allowed mobile phones as we understand the need for communication in many situations. Students can place their phone in the Student Office for safe keeping during the day. Our policy is that if we see a phone during school hours we will take that phone. If there is any concern about the use of a phone we will check the contents of that phone. We encourage every student to use his phone appropriately or risk losing the privilege of having a mobile phone at school. I ask parents not to call students directly on their mobiles during school hours as this will result in students contravening the College Mobile Phone Policy.
COMMUNICATION I continue to encourage all parents to openly communicate with their son and their son’s teachers. If there are any concerns please contact the relevant teacher and/or House Dean. The Student Diary is an excellent form of communication and parents should be reading the diary at least every week and ideally every day. Ask your son regularly how school is going for him. Take an active interest in your son’s day and you will be providing great support for him.
STUDENTS CONT... COUNSELLOR—EMILY ROTTA SCHOLARSHIPS Now is the time to start going onto the university sites and applying for the various scholarships as most universities have opened their scholarship application process. What is a scholarship? Basically, a scholarship is financial aid or a grant given to a student for various reasons so that they can continue their schooling. It has different forms and is awarded depending on different criteria. Scholarships can help with course fees, text books, accommodation costs and living expenses. Granting of scholarships by institutions and organisations is due to many different factors. You may be pleasantly surprised to find out that you are eligible to receive a scholarship. To find out if you are eligible visit the universities scholarship page directly, read through the selection criteria and complete the application before the due date.

IDENTITY & MINISTRY ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL IDENTITY—MATTHEW HAWKINS As we await a High Court decision on the Australian government’s “Malaysia Solution” for refugees and asylum seekers, it is interesting to note that next week (22-28 August) is International Migrant and Refugee Week, this year entitled “One Human Family”, as advertised by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference. On this note, I recently attended an Edmund Rice Network event at which Mr Phil Glendenning, Director of the Edmund Rice Centre in Sydney, gave an address in which he challenged some of the myths about refugees and asylum seekers apparent in our community. He provided the following points to refute the myths, and I add them here for your consideration. 10 ESSENTIAL FACTS ABOUT ASYLUM SEEKERS (produced by the Edmund Rice Centre - June 2011) 1. Asylum seekers are not illegal immigrants Asylum seekers are people seeking international protection, whose claims for 'refugee status' have not yet been determined. They are not 'illegal immigrants' because under both international and domestic laws, they have a legal right to enter Australia to seek asylum. Whether they arrive by plane or by boat is immaterial, as they are not supposed to be penalised for the manner of their entry. 2. A person does not require a passport or official papers to seek asylum The Refugee Convention provides the right to seek asylum in any place one can reach. Applying for a passport, or approaching UN offices or an Australian Embassy, can be far too dangerous for some refugees. These actions can put their lives, and their families’, at risk. In such cases refugees may have to bypass regular migration channels and travel using forged documents. Presenting false documents in asylum countries might be considered an offence. Therefore, it might often be wise to discard these life-saving, yet falsified documents, before approaching foreign officials. By arriving & seeking our protection without papers they commit no offence. 3. Australia’s share of the world’s asylum seekers is tiny According to UNHCR's figures 1,181,215 asylum seekers sought recognition in 2009 but Australia received only 6,206. This was only 0.53% of global asylum applications. Of 44 industrialised nations Australia ranked 16th overall - but on a per capita basis ranked 21st. 4. Other countries have far greater numbers of refugees than Australia Australia with 22,548 refugees and people in refugee-like situations, ranks 47th in the world. This is compared to Pakistan (1,740,711), Iran (1,070,488), Syria (1,054,466) Germany (593,799), Jordan (450,756), Kenya (358,928), Chad (338,495), China (300,989), USA (275,461) and UK (269,363). On a per capita basis, Australia is far behind poorer countries such as Jordan, Syria, Republic of Congo, Chad and Iran, and is also well behind other wealthy countries such as Sweden, Norway, Canada, and Germany. 5. Asylum seekers and refugees do not receive more favourable treatment or higher benefits Claims that refugees in Australia are entitled to higher benefits than other social security recipients are unfounded. All boat arrivals are subject to the same assessment processes as those who come by air. Charities and churches often provide support to settle in. How much money an asylum seeker had in their home country is immaterial to determining their 'well-founded fear of persecution'. 6. Boat people are not ‘queue jumpers’ and there is no queue in Malaysia There is no orderly queue for asylum seekers to join. Only a very small proportion of asylum seekers are registered with the UNHCR and only 1% of those are resettled. A ‘queue’ is something people join and eventually reach the top of. This is not the case in countries like Malaysia, with over 80,000 refugees and asylum seekers, and where it would take 158 years to reach the front. UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay says Australia is the only country where asylum seekers are demonised as ‘queue jumpers’. 7. Australia's deportation deal with Malaysia is not a regional solution Malaysia has a very poor human rights record and is not a signatory to the Refugee Convention. Thus, refugees have no legal status, cannot work, and are regularly subject to exploitation, discrimination and abuse, including well documented cases of caning and torture. Malaysia has regularly deported asylum seekers back to the dangers they are fleeing. Australia's deportation deal with Malaysia is a bilateral arrangement between two countries - not a regional solution. 8. Mandatory detention system needs urgent reform Australia’s system of mandatory detention jails people who have committed no offence regardless of age, sex, or state of health. The greatest sanction our nation has is to withdraw someone’s liberty and is usually reserved for serious crime. At the very least, detention should be limited to 30 days for health, ID and security checks, and any extension of that should require the permission of a court. 9. Refugees have been good for Australia Over 750,000 refugees and displaced people have settled in Australia since nationhood. Australia has a good record in receiving people from across the world. From Sir Gus Nossal, Frank Lowy, Nick Greiner, Hon Jim Spiegelman, comedian Anh Do, Dr Victor Chang, former Young Australian of the Year Tan Le, SBS’ Les Murray, artist Judy Cassab, and Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, to thousands of hard-working former refugee families across the nation – clearly refugees have been good for Australia. Let’s not forget it. 10. To silence racism towards refugees and asylum seekers we need bipartisan political leadership On her recent visit, UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay commented that when it came to the mandatory detention system, ‘there is a racial discriminatory element here in the inhumane treatment of people'. Former PM Malcolm Fraser seemed to concur when he commented that ‘we wouldn’t do this to boatloads of white Zimbabwean farmers’. The country urgently needs a return to a bi-partisan approach to the issue of asylum seekers and refugees. Our leaders need to stop appealing to fear where there is no basis for it, and once again build policy based in facts - consistent with our international obligations, including taking human rights seriously.
