Edition 11 19 October 2018

Principal’s Message I welcome all members of our College community back for Term 4. The holiday period provided us with an opportunity for some rest and recreation, as well as the chance to prepare for our final Term of 2018. I would like to offer my thanks to Mrs Manning and Mr Dantas who accompanied our students on their Fiji Immersion Experience and to Mrs Dickie, Mr Garrity and Ms Fitzgerald who travelled with our students to Japan for the study tour. The students participating in the two trips had a wonderful time filled with different experiences and in some cases life changing lessons. The process for electing College Captains was undertaken during the last few weeks of Term 3 and all applications for our profile Captain positions were very impressive. In addition to their written application, the students participated in an interview before a panel. Those who negotiated this part of the selection process were selected to then presented a speech to the Year 10, 11 and 12 students and staff, with voting being conducted electronically. I was impressed with the students as they spoke about a love of the College and St Clare and their aspirations for the future

2019 College Captain and Profile Captains Candidates

College Captain

Hello and welcome back for the final term of 2018! I hope everyone is refreshed and ready to push through this last haul. Last term was jam-packed crazy. Our biggest event was St Clare’s Day on Friday 17 August and it was SUPER. The theme was ‘Our Heroes’ and the day consisted of rockin’ costumes, fantastic rides, a variety of foods and a spectacular talent show. The day was a massive success and a total blast!

2

The following week St Clare’s experienced Stress-Less Week: a week of stress relieving activities organised and run by the Student Representative Council (SRC). The SRC had been tirelessly working toward this massive event. Each day had a theme: Monday – Calming Day, where origami and drawing occurred; Tuesday – Hobby Day, where robotics and sewing thrived; Wednesday – Girls Make Your Move, where dodgeball and ‘Just Dance’ was pumpin’; Thursday – Garden Day, where the first ever St Clare’s worm farm and garden began; and Friday – FRIENDS, where the TV show ‘Friends’ was played for students in the hall (popcorn included). A massive thanks and congratulations to the SRC for this incredible and successful event. Following this, students involved in the Arts had the privilege of travelling to Sydney for three days of fun. After participating in a NIDA workshop, experiencing a special Sydney Opera House tour, enjoying a day at Darling Harbour and witnessing the musical Calamity Jane, the students were inspired. Thank you to all staff involved and to Ms Vanessa Johnson for her passion and dedication, making this excursion possible.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13

As for this term, we are scared! There are only a few weeks until the Christmas break (and until I leave you *cries*). St Clare’s will be so busy that the time will fly! Speaking of flying, the Japanese students are back from their Japan trip! The students spent their holiday visiting traditional temples and shrines as well as Disney Sea, Hiroshima and Homestay. We hope they aren’t too tired for the term ahead. Early this term, the band is headed to Band Camp in preparation for Big Band Bash! We wish them luck. We also wish the best for the Middle School Production of Falling when they perform November 8-10: get your tickets! It’s all very exciting. This past year has been spectacular. St Clare’s has accomplished so much in such a short amount of time. I am incredibly proud of this school and am extremely grateful to have held a position of leadership. Thank you and good luck to the College Captain of 2019. Signing off, Lydia Milosavljevic College Captain


From the Desk of the AP Curriculum and Assessment Purpose When last I addressed you through Tidings, I continued with the development of the RIPPLE effect by speaking to influence. To have true influence, and be able to shape the world around you, requires the adoption of Purpose. A key quality for Purpose is developing an understanding that we exist, not for ourselves, but for each other. The quote from Desmond Tutu is as simple, as it is complex. He saw as part of his Purpose the desire to enable all people to appreciate that we need each other. To be an effective contributor to society beyond St Clare’s College, each of us needs to define our Purpose to each other and in life.

Purpose: Purpose within each of us, and recognition of what we are striving for, is critical to get to where we need to be. When I think of Purpose, I am reminded by someone close to me, of the lyrics from a David Bowie song: “I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream…” While the ripples may radiate out, they can still be constrained by the bounds of the stream or lake. Creating a genuine Purpose enables one to continue the

"My humanity is inextricably bound up in yours. We belong in a bundle of life." - Desmond Tutu "We must stand together as a community wanting only what is best for its people, whatever our national, racial, ethnic, economic and ideological differences." - United States Council of Catholic Bishops, 2014 ripple effect beyond the perception of the physical barriers. So how do we do this? Curriculum is vital to your daughter’s Purpose for being at St Clare’s College. Regardless of the subjects she may be undertaking, it is important that she understand that they are all connected. Just as we exist for each other in life, so too are their subjects connected. Education is holistic; it is not incremental and compartmentalised. Learning has relevance across all subjects and is not the purview of one. But their time of association with St Clare’s College is not an end in itself unless they decide to be bounded by the riverbanks. Education is not finite; it remains a continual process, as does our Purpose in life. In previous Tidings, I spent considerable time outlining the nature of the four C’s, namely critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity. By using these skills in a dynamic manner, your daughter can enhance an ability to define and create Purpose in her life beyond the corridors of St Clare’s College. While I will always continue to embellish these C’s, I would like to include two more at this point: character and compassion. If your daughter is able to create Purpose by truly understanding the linkages between people in life and the role that education plays in preparing her for this experience, she will also be developing true character. Her character will, in the eyes of many, define who she is as a person. It is not something

that she will be able to see, but it is something that others who have developed their Purpose, will recognise and see within her. It is a trait that will grow in value as she grows as a person. But to have genuine character, your daughter must also have compassion—compassion that is evidenced through being able to observe those who surround her in all their frailties, accept them for who they are, and understand how she can bring them with her on her life journey. In saying this, it is not about your daughter making everyone the same as she may be; rather it is about developing within her a recognition that others around her also have their Purpose, and maintaining respect for their values and ideals. Through the curriculum delivery at St Clare’s College, I will continue to promote within your daughter the Purpose for her to be a strong, capable and courageous individual. This always has been my personal mantra in defining my Purpose for them and will continue to be so. Each of the girls at St Clare’s College has a Purpose in life as do the teaching and support staffs; we also have a personal value to those with whom we interact. I would like to encourage your daughter to understand her Purpose and know when it is time for her ripples to extend beyond the bounds of the stream.

Meet our Teachers... Lisa Bourne, Assistant Arts & Languages Coordinator and Australia and has given me the opportunity to teach across the public and private sectors, including co-educational and all boys and all girls’ education. I have found St Clare’s College a very exciting and fulfilling teaching experience in the five years I’ve been here.

As a teacher of Languages the opportunity to expand students’ perspectives is challenging and fulfilling. By sharing my experiences of the Japanese culture and people, students can understand and value their own culture and the cultures of other people. Over 20 years ago I completed my double major in Japanese studies at the University of Queensland. My career has taken me from Dreamworld, to teaching in Japan

The language department works tirelessly to bring each girl at St Clare’s who continues with their language learning to the utmost height of experience in the language they endeavour to learn. I am passionate about teaching Japanese and instilling my love of the language to the students that I teach. The primary purpose of language is communication grammar is important, but there's a bigger picture. Language should be developed through students interacting and engaging. Students have to share their knowledge in order to communicate effectively, or look for language rules themselves

before re-applying them. Seeing students connect with a language and culture and the privilege to be able to prepare them with the right tools to take their interest in languages further is extremely rewarding. Working in a faculty with a team of like-minded teachers who are equally passionate about teaching and sharing ideas for learning makes my role even more enjoyable. One of the most enjoyable aspects of teaching languages is the opportunity to take students to the country concerned to visit and fully experience and apply the things they have been learning in the classroom. These visits provide wonderful opportunities for students to meet other students and get to know firsthand their life experiences and how they learn. In many instances, and from my own experience, this can lead to friendships that can last a lifetime.

Avril Baker, Science and Mathematics Teacher I am currently teaching some Science, some Chemistry and a bit of Maths, and I have been known to teach a bit of English when given the opportunity – something my students bemoan when we have discussions about what constitutes an ‘effective display of editing’.

Hello avid readers of Tidings, I am currently a classroom teacher here at St Clare’s and I can most commonly be found over in the Science department.

4

I completed my education qualifications at the Australian Catholic University here in Canberra and before that I studied at ANU, undertaking a double degree in Arts and Science where I focussed on Chemistry, Science Communication and English Literature. Whilst there I developed a real passion for Science Communication – I think it is one of the most essential components to Science being effective in our culture and that it will become an increasingly vital role in society.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13

I didn’t grow up dreaming of becoming a teacher (astronaut goals – space is cool). However, I found that the more I learnt and the more I took on roles where I could mentor and educate others, the more I realised that education was where my passion lay and the first time I got up and taught the ideal gas equation to a roomful of students who were willing to trust me I knew it was the job for me. One of the greatest things about being a teacher, is that everyday holds elements of the unknown – I love that coming to work each day guarantees I will be surprised, pleased, sometimes horrified, but always proud of the women I see our students becoming.


Rev. Vince Barclay, Religious Education Teacher theology with the Archdiocese of Canberra Goulburn. I possess over thirty years’ experience in the preparation of liturgical services and events.

As a teacher, I believe that ‘you cannot teach what you do not love.’ I love teaching both Religious Education and History and I have degrees in both subject areas. I possess a very deep knowledge of the Catholic faith gained from academic and personal study, prayer and reflection on practice over the past thirty years. I have completed a Bachelor of Theology in which I achieved a High Distinction average. I also hold a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education and a Bachelor of Arts in History. Furthermore, I have also completed two years of additional theological studies focusing on liturgy, ministry and

As a married member of the Catholic clergy, I have a unique and rare ministry in the Catholic Church. Since the Second Vatican Council in the 1960s, the Catholic Church has permitted married men to be ordained as Deacons (ie receiving the Sacrament of Holy Orders). As a Deacon, I preach at masses and I celebrate baptisms, weddings and funerals. I serve the St Clare’s community as a Deacon at the Opening and St Clare Day masses, I preach at the weekly combined school mass and celebrate Liturgies of the Word with Holy Communion for staff and students. As a religious minister, I am involved in the lives of individuals in moments of great joy, but also during times of loss and sorrow. In these difficult and emotional pastoral situations, I provide empathy, compassion and emotional support to individuals who are grieving and suffering. I provide care, support and guidance

to people who are preparing for marriage or having their children baptised. As the father of three young adults and a teenager, I do understand the issues affecting the lives of young people. Like St. Clare of Assisi, the passion of my life is to love and serve God and other people through living and sharing the Catholic faith and by being open to the poor through active participation in social justice activities. I am passionate about teaching the Catholic faith. My students have commented on my enthusiasm, commitment and how I make RE fun and interesting. I share my faith with my students in my classes through informative and stimulating lessons and the use of reason and logic to respond to their many questions. I inform my students that my role is to teach them how to think; and not to teach them to think like I do. The role of an excellent teacher is to challenge a student’s way of thinking and to help them to learn and to grow as a person. My goal is to build a spirited learning community that empowers students to reach their God-given potential.

Toni Smith, Art and Design Teacher strong, independent thinkers who will foster goodwill inside and beyond the classroom and the school gates.

I have had the very good fortune to be part of the St Clare’s College community since 2014. In that time I have enjoyed teaching Visual Art and Religious Education and working with students of all ages, backgrounds and learning styles. Teaching across all year groups is stimulating and draws on my passion for encouraging

My background in education and training involves a range of professional roles and responsibilities across a mix of project briefs with clients and colleagues across government, NGO and private sectors. I am a graduate of the Australian Catholic University with a Master of Teaching (Secondary) and a Graduate Certificate in Religious Education. My method areas of Visual Art and RE build on previous studies in Philosophy, Religious Studies and Visual Art with the Australian National University. Prior to university study, I completed my Diploma in Fine Arts from the National Art School. Additionally,

I hold several VET qualifications attained along the way. I believe that learning is a life-long process and the brain is a muscle that must be regularly exercised. A curious mind is sheer delight and worthy of cultivation; it is what drives my enthusiasm for teaching and providing opportunities for selfdiscovery through creative problemsolving, When students engage in cognitive rigour, they are engaging in brain fitness activities. Employing a growth mindset, my practice is underpinned by the principle that my role is to teach my students how to think, not what to think. In the words of Lao-Tzu, a Chinese philosopher, “Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.”

Languages at St Clare's

Languages are included as one of the key learning areas in the Australian Curriculum, a core component of the educational experience of all students. Making languages a key learning area recognises Australia’s distinctive and dynamic migration history. A quarter of all Australians were born overseas and they have brought with them, and many continue to use, their own languages and cultural practices. Our students need to be prepared for the global context and the need for social interaction has increased in recent years. A capacity to communicate effectively must be the foundation of social relationships in a globalised world. Languages are intimately linked to the essentially humanistic, cultural and intellectual reason for making language education compulsory. Multilingualism can foster more reflective and imaginative dispositions in global citizens.

6

The major rationale for learning languages is that being able to communicate proficiently gives learners essential communication skills in the target language, an intercultural capability, and an understanding of the role of language and culture in human communication. It provides the opportunity for students to engage with the linguistic and cultural diversity of humanity, to reflect on their understanding of human experience in all aspects of social life, and on their own participation and ways of being in the world. Language learning has come a long way since the days when repetitive grammar-translation methods were regarded as the only way to learn a language. Where a set of words, grammar rules, and pronunciations were set to memorize and recall at the right moments. Learning languages is not just a subject, but a tool to communicate in an ever-

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.� Philippians 4:13

changing, multi-cultural, multilingual world.

Communicative and task-based approaches, emphasising communication and the practical use of language is the methodology focus here at the College. These methods of teaching allow us to step away from the textbook whenever we can. Effective lessons strike a balance between grammar and communication, so that students can learn, enjoy and make progress in their target language. Grammar is the foundation for building the language skills; learning grammar enables students to speak and write more accurately, confidently and fluently, however, the approach is much more than that. Realistic communicative task-based activities


with the medium, they can focus on the second language, maintain higher engagement and a greater sense of achievement.

typically involve an information gap: students may have to share knowledge to communicate effectively, or look for language rules or intercultural understanding themselves before re-applying them. Students develop skills in critical thinking, reasoning, conceptualising and problem solving. A variety of approaches is the signature of the teaching of languages here at the College. Incorporating communicative

Homestays

language teaching and direct language use embraces ideas that range from lessons which include games, computers, audio-visual and kinaesthetic learning. For example, the Year 9 Italian students created a game and then taught these games to students at Yarralumla Primary School. Information technology allows students to collaborate with others, but it also gives them a choice of medium. As they are already familiar

Language is no longer seen as being learnt through mechanical exercises, it's developed through students interacting and engaging. What we value is teaching that aims to produce increasingly fluent language speakers in realistic situations, with the emphasis on developing students’ awareness of how the language actually works and how their own language works. It is important that language is not separated from its social and cultural contexts and is a critical dimension of understanding language in use. An important part of being a responsible world citizen in the 21st century is to be able to manage sensitive, effective communication and the transfer of knowledge across languages and cultures. Through learning languages students can understand and value their own culture and the cultures of other people, so that they can view the world from a wider perspective. Lisa Bourne Assistant Arts and Languages Coordinator

For the first time we will welcome two exchange students from Soshin Girls' High School in Yokohama, Japan from 29 January to 30 March 2019. If you would like your daughter to practice her Japanese and/or your family to learn more about Japanese culture, or maybe you would like to travel to Japan in the future and have a friend there to host you I would love to hear from you. Each family only needs to host for 2-3 weeks each. All that is required is accommodation and transport to and from school. There will be reimbursement paid per week to the host family to offset costs. If you have any questions or are interested in hosting please contact or email me at lisa.bourne@stcc.act.edu.au. I would be happy to share more details and the students' profiles with you at this time. Lisa Bourne Assistant Arts and Languages Coordinator

Japan Study Tour

During the school holidays, 17 senior Japanese students travelled to Japan. We explored the cities of Hiroshima, Kyoto, Nara, Matsumoto and Tokyo over two weeks. We were lucky enough to have great weather, despite Typhoon Trami following us. Whilst in Hiroshima, we delivered our 1,000 paper cranes, made by students from the College in honour of Sadako to her statue in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. One of our highlights was a day trip to a beautiful island called Miyajima. Here, we encountered our first deer freely roaming the streets. We walked underneath one of the most famous Tori Gates in front of Itsukushima Shrine. In Kyoto, we visited amazing temples, shrines, palaces and had a geisha experience where we able

to appreciate the traditional arts and crafts of Japan, including a tea ceremony, traditional dance and games. Then a day trip to Nara, where we had another encounter with deer. We also had a chance to meet up with Miki sensei, a Japanese Assistant Language teacher that worked at St Clare’s earlier this year, at the Golden Pavilion. The next part of our adventure was up in the mountains in Nagano. We were hosted in Matsumoto and visited Matsumoto Kokusai High School. At the high school, we toured the school, met students, practised our Japanese and joined in a manga and cooking class. At the homestay we were able to experience life in a traditional Japanese home, including sleeping on a futon on tatami mats, trying homemade traditional

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13

Japanese meals and practising our language skills even more. We visited the Matsumoto Castle, a wasabi farm, a dairy farm and made soba noodles, traditional fans and paper dolls. Finally, we made it to our last destination, Tokyo. It was everything we imagined it would be: flashing lights, crowded streets, crazy fashion, tall buildings and so many shops. On the last couple days we went to Disney Sea and the Ghibli Museum, quintessentially Japanese pop culture places. Thank you to Mrs Bourne for organising the trip and Mrs Dickie, Mr Garrity and Ms Fitzgerald for being great leaders on our study tour. Year 10 Japanese Class

Fiji Immersion Trip

Sometimes an experience has such a profound impact upon you that it is hard to articulate it into words, but hopefully this brief account will give you an awareness of our 10-day immersion trip to Fiji from Sunday 30 September to Tuesday 9 October.

10

to shop for supplies for our trip to Nausori Village in the Highlands. The village is only 22 kms out of town but a world away from the comforts of home that we are all familiar with.

This was St Clare’s sixth trip to the Pacific Island of Fiji but our first to span 10 days and include a homestay in the Highlands. Our group of twenty, senior students plus Mr Dantas and Mrs Manning were ready to immerse ourselves into Fijian life having spent five afternoons after school in Term 3 preparing for our trip.

Each pair of students was carefully allocated to a family and spent three nights in the homes of their adopted Momo and Nana’s. All the meals were beautifully cooked by the ladies of the village and shared together in the main house. These gatherings became celebrations, times to share the day’s activities, discuss new found information, consider our role within the community and to appreciate each other.

Upon arrival into Nadi we were welcomed by our Rustic Tour Leaders, Mandy from San Francisco and Semi from Nausori, Fiji. The traditional welcoming Kava Ceremony at the Eco Lodge in Momi Bay certainly set the tone for the days to come. The following morning, we travelled back into Nadi

Our days were spent creating a 70 plus metre long footpath which would allow easy and safe access around the village especially during the wet season. We also painted the nurse’s station, inside and out. We played impromptu games of soccer, stuck in the mud, duck duck goose with the village

children and elders after school. We swam at the waterfall and spent precious time getting to know our homestay families. On our last night we dressed up in traditional Sulu chumbas, received salusalu or flower garlands, shared a celebratory meal together, sang and danced and participated in farewell kava ceremonies. Our final farewells on the Thursday proved to be extremely emotional, the villagers of Nausori will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Our return to the Eco Lodge in Momi Bay saw us participate in many local service projects including those in Bavu Village. Here the girls had the opportunity to construct framework, concrete and build infrastructure needed for the upgrade of sanitation facilities. A challenging but rewarding 6 km hike through the Sigatoka sand dunes gave us a chance to assist with beach clean-up and dune stabilization. We collected


and replanted mangrove seedlings and learnt about the importance of the mangroves to the villagers of Momi Bay while kayaking through its waters. We prepared home cooked protein rich meals under the guidance of Shalini and delivered these to the residents of Navaki Hart House. This affordable housing community available for low income earners, single mothers and orphaned children in the Sabeto region benefit greatly from the meals prepared as well as having the opportunity to interact with visiting students. We also learnt how to make salusalus from women working at a local market. These women travel hours each day to sell and create these arrangements for the tourist and local hotel chains. It was wonderful to sit and learn more about their personal stories. We were warmly welcomed into the Catholic community of St Michael’s while attending mass on Sunday. The beautiful singing alone was something to behold. Down time included an afternoon chilling at Natolda beach, shopping in Nadi, swimming at the lodge, relaxing in the Sabeto mud pools, watching Fijian fire dancing and singing, nightly discussions, journal writing, and our final Kava ceremony. Each experience offered us a new perspective and opportunity to fully immerse ourselves in Fijian culture. It was an incredible 10-days, we have learnt a lot about ourselves, about Fijian life especially the importance of family and community, the benefits of disconnecting from social media and how even a small contribution can make a significant difference to the lives of others. We would like to sincerely thank all those who enabled us to participate in this life changing experience, our parents, our families, our College community and Rustic Pathways. Until we meet again Vaneka Fiji. Marie Manning Mission and Ministry Coordinator

Falling

St Clare’s College Presents

An Original Middle School Play for Years 7 to 9 7pm, Thursday 8 and Friday 9 November St Clare’s College Hall

Falling by Vanessa Johnson (Arts and Languages Coordinator) is an original play written specifically for students at St Clare's College in Years 7-9. Rehearsals and final preparations for the play are well underway. Falling tells the story of Evie, who being obsessed with social media and her newly successful Youtube channel, takes one step too far and finds herself sucked into a parallel fantasy world. Four girls in her class are also reluctantly forced into this world and on a quest to not only rescue their friend but themselves. The play includes live music, a stellar 80s soundtrack, and large movement pieces. Based on the style of physical theatre this production aims to inspire, entertain and educate a young audience. The play is suitable for older primary to high school students. Younger students might find parts of the production quite scary due to the mask work and "evil" characters. Tickets will be available to purchase via Qkr! on the College website from Friday 26 October. Tickets will be available for adults, children and family (2 adults/2 children). There will no allocated seating available.

Written and Directed by Vanessa Johnson, Arts & Languages Coordinator

Explosion

During the first week of Term 3 holidays, 70 students gathered from near and far to participate in the Explosion Youth Conference held at St Clare’s. The three days were jam packed with fun games and activities, seminars, inspirational talks and some amazing praise and worship. Explosion was an amazing opportunity for so many young people to encounter Christ in such a tangible way and to experience a personal relationship with Jesus. The conference gave us an opportunity to participate in the Church’s sacraments and to be nourished through prayer and support by such a faith-filled community. Many went away feeling spiritually fueled as well as establishing and growing new-formed friendships and connections with all the young people who attended.

are embedded in these roles. The activities on the day consisted of the Super Hornet simulator, virtual reality experience, air traffic control, and aircrew life support gear demonstrations.

and his crew from the Aviation Candidate Management Centre for funding and making programs like this accessible to our students. Our students throughly valued and enjoyed the experience.

I would like to acknowledge and thank the Australian Defence Force and Daniel Fisher, Flight Lieutenant

Library Has Moved

In preparation for our exciting Library renovation in 2019, the Library has relocated to the Flexible Learning Centre for Term 4, 2018 and all of 2019. This term students have been road testing and providing feedback on new library shelving and furniture that, if successful in passing the rigorous tests, will be incorporated into the new Learning Commons design. The FLC houses a reduced collection of resources that have been determined by curriculum need and previous loan history. We will be increasing our online and ebook subscriptions to ensure students have access to the resources they need. The resources that we will not be taking with us will be boxed up and put into long term storage ready for use again in 2020. Whilst in the temporary location, the library will still maintain the same functionality that students currently enjoy. Renee Jones Learning Commons Coordinator

Three teams were entered, one Year 7/8 team, one Year 9 team and one Year 10 team. 22 girls attended the day at Deakin Ovals, in what was a fun day playing cricket. A big thank you to Mrs Macdonald and Mr Elliott for organising the teams and for coaching them.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13

The Years 7/8 team played five games during the day and was coached by Mrs Macdonald. The team had a fun day with a couple of close games against Mt Stromlo High School , St Francis Xavier College and St Mary Mackillop College and a big win against Merici College 110-65. Tamara Brammall and Olivia Maron were impressive with their batting and bowling skills. Kate Alexander and Sophia Mills improved every game, and Jemma Grimmond and Ruby Kelly put in some consistent performances. In what was a great day. The Year 9 team had a blast even with the disadvantage of only having seven players and was coached by Mr Elliott. The best game for the Year 9s was against Gold Creek Senior School, winning by 50 runs (190140). The team gave their best go against Merici College, Mt Stromlo High School, St Francis Xavier College and in a match up with the Year 10 St Clare’s team. Hayley Macdonald, Mackenzie Bale and Georgia Boyes gave great batting performances. Lucy Burnell was the most improved over the five games. The Year 10 team had an enjoyable and competitive day and was coached by Liz Edwards. The team won three out of four games, with wins against Mt StromloHigh School (112-70), Gold Creek High School (92-89) and the Year 9 St Clare’s Team (177-125). Briana Maguire made two brilliant caught and bowled plays to add to the days highlight reel. Tayla Julien and Olivia Graham made several great runouts, whilst Georgia Ugov and Abigail Maguire made great diving stops on the boundary. Nikita Taylor and Emma Dailly smashed the ball out of the field with a couple of big sixes in impressive displays. Lana was the most improved player, going from missing the ball to hitting a six in the last game. David Garrity Sports Facilitator


Inspirational Women 2013

Class of Kathy Mac

I have many fond memories of my time at St Clare’s as a Makara girl, and to this day I still reminisce over funny and enjoyable moments with my closest friends whom I attended this school with. After graduating Year 12 I accepted an offer from the University of Canberra to study a Bachelor of Medical Science. Over the years I studied as both a full time student and as a part time student and worked over various areas of health. Upon finishing college, I had no idea what career I wished to pursue and it took me a couple of years to figure it out. This year is the final year of my completion of my bachelor’s degree, and I am extremely excited to graduate! The next chapter of my life will be my journey to become a qualified optometrist – which was not the career path my Year 12 self would have considered back then. Back in high school and college, I was conflicted between choosing a career in arts or a career in science. I was a very artistic student but also had a passion to help others. Years later I managed to find a way to use my artistic skills AND fulfill my passion to help others in the area of health. In mid 2017 I created an Instagram page called “Little Lantern” (@_little_lantern) to display my calligraphy and visual artworks online. Luckily, RAW - an independent arts organisation found my Instagram page and invited me to publicly showcase my work at their art event. The showcase was a big success and to this day I continue to post my works online as well as accept requests to create customised artworks whilst completing my tertiary studies. What I have learnt so far after life at St Clare’s: never compare yourself to others – every person has their own path which they will follow at their own pace, keep following your passions, do what makes you happy, and always “Seek Wisdom”.

2003

Class of Sarah Cook

Following finishing Year 12 in 2003, I was accepted in a Bachelor of Applied Science at the University of Canberra (completed 2010). I went on to represent Australia on the Australian Rowing Team for 9 years, from 2004-2012, which included competing at the 2008 Beijing and 2012 Olympic Games. Throughout my rowing career, I won many National Championships, as well as World Championship and World Cup medals. Following London 2012, and a very public feud with Rowing Australia in regard to gender equality, I decided to change sports to Sailing. I represented Australia on the Australian Sailing Squad and Team for three years from 2013-2015 in the 470 and 49erFX classes. Following my skipper's pregnancy which prevented our contending selection for the Rio 2016 Olympics, I decided to retire from competitive sport in 2015 thus ending a 15 year career which included 12 years of representing my country. Throughout this time I had completed my Bachelor degree, a Graduate Diploma in Education (Secondary) through the University of New England, and this year the Australian Institute of Company Directors Course. Whilst at university I was awarded the honours of a Full Blue from the University of Canberra, a Full Blue from the University of Sydney, and Sportsperson of the Year (2011) from the University of New England. From 2014-2017, I worked in the rowing program at St Josephs College in Sydney, and was the Head of Rowing from 2015-2017. During this time, the College won the Head of the River for the first time in 42 years, and I was the first female Head of Rowing in the history of the NSW GPS rowing competition, and the first female Head of Sport at the College. In 2017, I took as role at Australian Sailing as the Operations Manager for the high performance program. However departed in mid-2018 to take on a new role as Head Coach of Rowing at Kinross Wolaroi School in Orange, and the Athlete Development Coordinator which has involved establishing an athlete development, wellbeing and support program for the top elite development athletes across all sports within the school. My other current roles include President of Sydney University Boat Club, Vice-President of Sydney University Sport, Councillor on the Rowing Australia Council, Director on the Board of Rowing NSW. I have also been commentating for the World Rowing and Henley Royal Regatta global broadcasts since 2013, which are televised on Fox Sports in Australia. In 2015 I was named one of the Financial Review and Westpac "100 Women of Influence" in the Young Leaders category. Contributions are greatly welcomed from past students.

Youth Olympic Games – St Clare’s College Students represent Australia

St Clare’s students Keely Small (Year 11) and Abbey Webb (Year 12) represented Australia at the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires from 6 to 18 October. Keely Small had the honour of being the Australian team’s flag-bearer at the opening of the Youth Olympic Games. Australia’s Chef de Mission Evelyn Halls said “Small demonstrated the ideals of excellence, respect and sportsmanship, vital to lead Australia at the Youth Olympic level.” This was Keely’s second time representing Australia on the world stage this year, earlier she competed at the Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast. Keely was a favourite going into the 800m race and in the final she dominated to win Australia’s fourth gold of the Games with a time of 2:04.76.

“It hasn’t sunk in quite yet. This whole experience has been amazing, to be announced flagbearer and now see the Australian flag raised from on top of the podium with a gold medal – I’m so stoked.” Keely said. “It’s been a big year with Commonwealth Games and Youth Olympics, but the big goal now is Tokyo 2020. I’ll get back into training when I’m home and have a good season to keep working towards Tokyo.” Abbey Webb attended the 2018 Georgina Hope Foundation Australian Age Championships in late April 2018 as a result of her achievement at the event she was selected for the 2018 Junior Pan Pacific Swimming Championships and the 2018 Youth Olympic Games. Abbey participated in the Women’s 50m, 100m Freestyle, 200m Freestyle, and Women’s 4 x 100m Medley Relay and the Mixed 4 x 100m Freestyle Relay. Abbey placed 5th in the 100m Freestyle and received a silver medal for Australia in the Women’s 4 x 100m Medley Relay.

Abbey said “It was such a good experience. It was just awesome, especially to win a medal in a relay, it is always better as everyone gets to experience the same thing.”

UK Gap Year: Five Year 12 students have been accepted into three schools in the United Kingdom to complete their gap year. The girls will be doing a range of jobs from assisting teachers, before and after school care and sport coaching. They will work with both day and boarding students, as well as take the opportunity to travel when they get the chance. This is sure to be a wonderful experience for the girls who will learn a lot about themselves as well as life as a tutor in the UK education system. We wish the girls all the very best as they depart between 1-4 January 2019.

OCTOBER 2018

The best time to have a little control over your child’s internet and app use is when purchasing a phone or smart device for your child for the first time (it’s a little trickier when you try to do it retrospectively, but still possible of course). You can set up family sharing and parental controls before handing over the device, and then slowly give them more responsibilities and access when they have demonstrated they are mature enough to handle them. Communicating the dangers of the internet and getting their input continually may help your children to use their device in a safer way.

ABOUT: 4+

GROUPME Free Connects users

Private / hide from parents Language Sexual content

ABOUT:

GroupMe is a free group messaging app that allows users to create groups using their phone or email contacts. An unlimited number of groups can be created. Within each group that is set up, users can text and send images, gifs and videos. GroupMe has its own, exclusive set of emojis which users can send to one another. The social AI chat bot “Zo”, developed by Microsoft, can be added as a contact in GroupMe and can participate in group chats, which can be appealing to younger users.

SnapChat is a social media photo sharing app, infamous for its selferasing photos, in-built face filters and geographical photo tags. Users can set different time limits for their photos to disappear (or set to ‘Infinity’) in their stories, and ‘Ghost Mode’ enables them to watch other people’s stories without being seen themselves.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS:

SnapChat can give users a false sense of security when sharing their photos, believing they have been automatically erased. As conversations cannot occur without a photo, users are continually taking photos of themselves or their surroundings to continue their conversation ‘streak’. As with anything on the internet, photos and conversations on the app are permanent and public, despite what the app claims. Users can see if someone has taken a screengrab of their photo, but are unable to do anything about it (push notifications need to be turned on, otherwise users need to check manually). Many safety concerns have been raised by parents, including the ‘Ghost Mode’, geographical photo tags and the ability to chat with strangers.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS: GroupMe has a wide range of gifs available, many of which have explicit imagery and language. GroupMe notifications pop up without showing any of the content of the messages (set as default), allowing users to better hide potentially inappropriate content from parents. Users cannot delete old messages, and parents have expressed concerns that unfiltered internet access is available through the app. For more information and helpful parent tips regarding your child’s tech use, visit www.perimeterguardian.com.au/insights

2018 Student Residential Address and Other Information collection notice This notice is from the Australian Government Department of Education and Training (the department), to advise you that the department has requested that your child’s school provide a statement of addresses, in accordance with the Australian Education Regulation 2013 (Cth) (the Regulation). A statement of addresses contains the following information about each student at the school:    

Student residential address (not student names) Student level of education (i.e. whether the student is a primary or secondary student) Student boarding school status (i.e. whether the student is boarding or a day student) Names and residential addresses of the student’s parent(s) and/or guardian(s)

Schools generate a record number for each student for the purposes of this collection, which is also provided to the department.

Purpose of the collection This collection is routinely used to inform Commonwealth school education policy, and to help ensure that Commonwealth funding arrangements for non-government schools are based on need, and are fair and transparent. The National School Resourcing Board recently completed a review of the socio-economic status (SES) score methodology used in the calculation of the Commonwealth’s needs-based funding arrangements for non-government schools. The information collected in the statement of addresses will be used to progress the Board’s recommendations, which have been accepted by the Government. Further information on this review and the Government’s response can be found here: https://www.education.gov.au/review-socio-economic-status-ses-score-methodology.

Use and disclosure of personal information Your personal information is protected by law, including the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth). Any use and disclosure of your personal information relating to the statement of addresses will occur in accordance with the Regulation. Your personal information may be used by the department, or disclosed to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (the ABS), for the purposes of SES score policy development, reviewing SES score methodology, calculating SES scores, Commonwealth school education policy development (including school funding), or where it is otherwise required or authorised by law. For example, your personal information may be provided to the ABS for statistical and research purposes, which includes data integration projects such as the Multi-Agency Data Integration Project (MADIP). Further information on the MADIP can be found here: http://www.abs.gov.au/websitedbs/D3310114.nsf/home/Statistical+Data+Integration+-+MADIP. The department may, from time to time, carry out audits of school submissions. In the event of an audit, contracted auditors may seek to compare a school’s statement of addresses with student enrolment information held by the school. These contractors will not use the information for any other purpose. The department may also be required to disclose your personal information to contracted providers for the purposes of the provision of ICT support services to the department. The department does not intend to disclose personal information to overseas recipients.

What do you need to do? You are not required to do anything. Your school is responsible for providing the requested details to the department, however, please ensure that your school has the most up-to-date and correct details for your family. 24

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13


Contacts for further information Your school can provide additional information about the process for the statement of addresses collection. If you have any further questions regarding the collection, you can contact the department by:  

Email: seshelpdesk@education.gov.au Phone (free call): SES helpdesk on 1800 677 027 (Option 4)

The department’s privacy policy is available on the department’s website at www.education.gov.au. The privacy policy contains information about:   

how individuals can access and seek correction of the personal information held by the department; how complaints about breaches of the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) can be made; and how the department will deal with these complaints.
