Principal’s Message On Thursday 5 December at our Year 12 Graduation Mass and Awards Ceremony I spoke about the concept of ubuntu. The word ubuntu is part of the Zulu phrase “Ubuntu ngumuntu ngabantu”, which literally means that a person is a person through other people. Ubuntu has its roots in humanist African philosophy, where the idea of community is one of the building blocks of society. Ubuntu is that nebulous concept of common humanity or oneness: meaning you and me both. Ubuntu is, at the same time, a deeply personal philosophy that calls on us to mirror our humanity for each other. To the observer, ubuntu can be seen and felt in the spirit of willing participation, unquestioning cooperation, warmth, openness, and personal dignity displayed by a group of people towards each other. The main modern proponent of ubuntu philosophy is Archbishop Desmond Tutu. In his book, No Future Without Forgiveness, he describes a person with ubuntu as being “open and available to others, affirming of others, someone who has a proper selfassurance.” The ubuntu this person possesses comes from being part of a greater whole. Archbishop Tutu states that you might have much of the world’s riches, and you might hold a portion of authority, but if you have no ubuntu, you do not amount to much.

Perhaps Ubuntu is best illustrated through the following story: An anthropologist studying the habits and customs of an African tribe found herself surrounded by children most days. So she decided to play a little game with them. She managed to get lollies from the nearest town and put it all in a decorated basket at the foot of a tree. Then she called the children and suggested they play a game. When the anthropologist said “now”, the children had to run to the tree and the first one to get there could have all the candy to him/herself. So the children all lined up waiting for the signal. When the anthropologist said “now”, all of the children took each other by the hand and ran together towards the tree. They all arrived at the same time divided up the lollies, sat down and began to happily munch away. The anthropologist went over to them and asked why they had all run together when any one of them could have had the candy all to themselves. The children responded: “Ubuntu. How could any one of us be happy if all the others were sad?” Ubuntu places togetherness above the individual. To all of our students in 2019 who have placed togetherness above the individual, I thank you. As we reach the end of the school year, it is a time to reflect upon the wonderful examples of community, friendship, endeavour and hard work enacted throughout the year. Our teachers, students and parents

“Perhaps you were born for a time such as this” Esther 4:14

all give so much of themselves to make our school the spirited learning community that it is and I am grateful for this.

Staff Farewells Whilst this time of year is filled with the anticipation of Christmas and the festive season, I am faced with the task of farewelling valued members of our College staff. Hence it is with sadness that I inform you of the following staff that are leaving us to retire or to pursue other opportunities and pathways: •

Robert Pegolo has been at St Clare’s for 25 years. Robert has been a passionate, committed and dedicated teacher of Science who always endeavoured to extract the best from his students. Robert is respected by his colleagues and students and will be missed. We thank Robert for his valuable contribution to our College over a significant period of time and wish him all the best for his retirement.

Terri McGinness has been at St Clare’s for 22 years as a Learning Support Teacher. Terri has fulfilled this role with passion and commitment ensuring creative opportunities were made available to our students. Terri is a valued and respected member of our College community and we thank her for her valuable contribution over a significant period of time and we wish her all the best for her retirement.

Cate Low has been at St Clare’s for 16 years. Cate has been a teacher of SOSE, Children’s Services and Religious Education. Cate is held in high esteem by her colleagues and her students will miss her pastoral approach to teaching. We thank Cate for her valuable contribution to our College over a significant period of time and we wish her all the best for her retirement.

Sarah Johnston has been at St Clare’s for 9 years as part of the Religious Education Faculty. In her time with us Sarah has been able to connect positively with the staff and students. Sarah is respected by all and will be missed. We thank her for her valuable contribution to our College and wish her all the best for her retirement.

Diane Kelly has been at St Clare’s for 8 years as a Learning Support Teacher. Diane’s work with the Inclusive Education Team and the staff has been extremely valuable in assisting teachers to support students in their learning. Diane has had a positive impact on building the learning growth of students across the College. Diane will be missed by all. We wish her all the best for her retirement.

Helen Ison has been at St Clare’s for 2 years teaching Science. Helen has fulfilled this role with passion and commitment ensuring creative opportunities were made available to our students. Helen is a valued and respected member of our College community and we wish her all the best as she moves to Queensland in 2020.

I wish everyone a happy and holy Christmas and may the birth of Jesus remind us of the anticipation of wonderful things to come. May the joy and peace of Christmas be with you today and throughout the New Year. Enjoy a relaxing and restful holiday with family and friends and I pray that you will be travelling safely. Thank you for your support of St Clare’s in 2019 and I look forward to another big year in 2020. May peace and mercy be yours in abundance. Brad Cooney Principal

Community Day Years 7, 8 and 9 students as well as the teaching staff of the College enjoyed Community Day 2019 at the Limelight Cinema Tuggeranong for the viewing of the Addams Family before walking to the Lakeside Leisure Centre to enjoy lunch and a swim in the pool. After an exciting and jammed packed school year it was great to take the opportunity to stop as a College and enjoy each other’s company. We experienced perfect weather for the day that allowed both staff and students to stretch across the picnic areas of the Leisure Centre to make the most of the day. The excited buzz of completed student assessment was evident throughout the day as the conversations steered away from drafts, study and deadlines to holiday plans, Christmas shopping and sleep ins.

Technologies End of Year Exhibition The Technologies faculty offers a diverse range of teaching and learning areas. From Design and Technology, Graphic Design, Hospitality, Food technology, Digital Technology to Textiles. On Wednesday 27 November the Technologies faculty showcased a large variety of student works from Semester 2. Throughout the Technologies department students are exposed to a range of learning environments were students apply a hands-on practical solution to a variety of work. In many cases, students are challenged to explore and investigate, design and create, various products and design solutions. Their creativity and enthusiasm is evident in the class learning environment where students are actively engaged both collaboratively and individually in understanding and applying the skills and information that they learn. This can be seen through the excellent range of work displayed at our exhibition which highlighted innovation and creative pursuits from the semester. Ellie Rowland Acting Technologies Coordinator

Duke of Edinburgh Award Congratulations to Ashley Tang (Year 12) and Kathryn Liston (Year 12) who have completed their Gold and Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award respectively. A recount of their experiences in the program is below.

Ashley Tang - Gold Award

The Duke of Edinburgh Award program has been an integral part of my high school journey. I discovered the program in Year 9 when I began the Bronze Award and would have never imagined later completing both the Silver and the Gold Awards. What drew me to the Award was its flexibility to self-tailor the program specific to my interests and time commitments, and make relevant goals that were challenging yet achievable. In Years 11 and 12, I engaged in the Gold Award with four distinct sections similar to the Bronze and Silver Awards: voluntary service, physical recreation, skills and adventurous journey. I chose to volunteer at a St Vincent de Paul Op Shop, where I could directly assist the local community in raising funds for those in need. I decided to engage in a new physical activity, taekwondo, and after months of training, received my green belt! I wanted to improve my skills in piano, which has been of long-term interest, and worked hard to receive my Grade 8 AMEB

18

certificate. For the adventurous journeys, I decided to try horse riding which were absolutely amazing and fulfilling experiences. The Gold Award also had an additional section called the Residential Project, which involved engaging with different people in a new setting. I wanted to learn more about evangelisation and community faith, and did so through the Ignite Youth Conference. I really enjoyed learning about others’ experiences with God and how they engage with the community. Each section fostered exciting and valuable experiences and helped me step out of my comfort zone while improving my skills. I encourage anyone who wants to challenge themselves and connect with the community, to do the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Kathryn Liston Silver Award

This year I completed the Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award. I started Duke of Edinburgh in Year 9, at the bronze award level. I initially joined because it seemed like a great way to get credit for the activities I was already doing as well as becoming involved in different forms of service and the adventurous journeys.

regularly. For my silver award I had to complete 26 hours and this took me 28 weeks. I really enjoy debating, so I did debating as my Skills component. I also had to complete 26 hours, which took a little longer but I got there in the end. For my bronze award I did Student2Student reading program – where you read over the phone with a primary school student a couple of times a week. For Silver I did a variety of school based service activities such as Little Dresses for Africa and helping the Social Justice Committee, this was really good because I would have done these things anyway and it meant I could do it at school giving me more time after school to do other things. The Adventurous Journeys are so much fun. You get to meet girls from other year groups, plan and cook your own meals and feel satisfied when you complete the hike or the kayak. For each award you have to do a practice and a qualifying journey. For the silver practice journey we did a kayaking trip in Kangaroo Valley, where we kayaked to our campsite and then to where we were picked up the next day. The wildlife and scenery were beautiful but hot tip: wear long shorts and sunscreen or you will get burnt. Instead of doing another of these journeys I decided to use the Fiji Immersion as my qualifying journey as I was already going on this trip. Hannah Baillie Duke of Edinburgh Facilitator

For my physical section of the award I chose tennis. I have been playing tennis for Kambah
