Editorial:

With the start of the new school year quickly approaching, it was with a great sense of excitement that I approached my new post as Publications Prefect and Editor of Lions Raw. My ever growing enthusiasm for the publication portfolio has lead to this, a first week back edition which is also an indication of the committed and effective Lions Raw team already assembled from last year which is eager to succeed. I am now especially keen to welcome Year 10’s into our team and all new students who want to participate in publications With the start of the new year, many opportunities arise for myself and fellow students. I hope that the Lions Raw can be an opportunity for writing and provide a voice for students who have opinions on any matter, and that you will look forward to the release of the next issue as much as I do. I also hope that Lions Raw can feature student work in literature and the visual arts as the year progresses and encourage you to submit creative pieces to share with others. Mum always told me to make jokes if I ever felt awkward. This, my first editorial, struck me as an awkward task, so here is a joke.

Who’s the new guy? An introduction and interview with the all new Head of St Kilda Road, Mr Brenker. Ryan Sandor

2010 is the beginning of a new era at Wesley College with Mr Richard Brenker taking over from the much loved and successful Mr Stuart Davis. Mr Brenker has been a part of the Wesley community for 30 years and held many positions such as: • • • • •

Head of Humanities First’s Basketball Coach Head of Houses Head of Middle School (SKR) Head of Senior School (GW).

Now again, he has moved on within the College and I had the opportunity to speak to him during the summer holiday break just to see what he plans to do to successfully reintegrate into the St Kilda Road environment.

G’day Collegians. Slip on your colours, slop on your face paint and slap on your game shoes because this year is set to be a big one in relation to the House activities agenda. This term we have 5 sports being warball, tunnelball, Swimming Carnival, volleyball and indoor cricket. Warball has traditionally been a big house event, it being played as the first sport of the year will set up to be a ripper start to the House activity season. The Swimming Carnival on the 3rd of March is the biggest event of the term with sausage sizzles, music and, of course, swimming being participated in over the day. Just the same as every year before this, House sports is not all about wielding the House cup at the end of the year. First and foremost, it is about participation and having fun, so we are encouraging as many students as possible to give each sport a go. Look forward to seeing you out there!

Study Habits

Whilst fast food, smartphones and cable TV help alleviate life’s biggest horrors we have yet to truly apply our awesome Gen Y penchant for laziness to our schooling in any other form than procrastination. With this simple 6 step program, however, you can set yourself on the road to success. Step 1: Turn up to class It may sound counter-intuitive but it’s sure to catch your teacher off guard. If you’re there, why should they suspect you watched the Dexter marathon last night instead of doing that 6000 word comparative essay on the relative weaknesses of Quantum Geo-Economics.

Step 3: Ask/Answer the first question At this point in the lesson when you most likely haven’t gotten past the blurb, your teacher will give you an approving smile and then pick on the next kid.

Step 4: Lead the teacher off-topic AFL and cheese are always crowd pleasers but beneath the teacher’s scholarly exterior there lies a wily critter. Instead, ask a question about the topic not intimately close to the work. The teacher feels bound to teach you and will go on. Intersperse with deeper questions to continue the monologue. Nod regularly. Bring cheese.

Step 6: Be an errand boy/girl Boot kissing requires bending over and that causes back problems. Run errands instead. A teacher can’t fault you for helping a colleague whilst the other students handed work in and your dog’s digestion will be better for it.

Spot your teachers A guide to help you tell your teachers apart. Angus Attwood

The start of a new year leads to many changes including new teachers. (Provided, of course, that you’re not in Year 12 IB.) You’ll soon get to know the people who will be attempting to teach you Old Man Wilkins throughout the year. I’ve discovered “Old Man Wilkins” does not have to be throughout the years that most teachers a male teacher, or even old. An ‘Old Man are alike, and even fall into groups. See if Wilkins’ is the sort of teacher who has seen nearly everything life has to offer, you can spot yours in the list below. and will happily share his or her stories with the class. While these are often interesting, depending on the prompt Drill Sergeants. “Drill Sergeants” want you to fear them. the stories can go on for as long as half They make themselves known early the lesson, maybe even more. ‘Old Man on by SHOUTING to the class that they Wilkins’ teachers are usually quite popudon’t want anyone messing around in lar as they’re both interesting and wise their classroom, and troublemakers will but sometimes they make better substibe punished. They take their subject tute teachers - depending on how well VERY seriously, and anyone undermin- you want to do in that subject, at least. ing the importance of what they’re going on about will be…dealt with. “Drill Sergeants” are easy to identify, as you can usually hear them from three classrooms down. The desired effect is to scare the class straight, and this occasionally works. For about a week. Nearly everyone has had their own variation of the “Drill Sergeant’ teacher, so everyone has their own way of dealing with them but my strategy is to befriend them early on. They make powerful allies.

Guy-smiley

If you wind up with a ‘Guy-Smiley’ teacher, be thankful. These teachers are like ‘Old Man Wilkins’ in that they don’t have to be male. They just always seem to be in a good mood. As they’re always in a good mood, they’re eager to make classes more fun and easier for everyone. A ‘Guy-Smiley’ usually doesn’t give out much homework or tries to make it as easy and quick as possible. Usually the punishment for not completing a work requirement is a disappointed expression and a reminder to get it done as soon as possible but this can sting more than any detention ever could. Beware, though. ‘Guy-Smiley’s’ can only take so much before they snap, so don’t push them. That’s how ‘Drill Sergeants’ are born.

Mask-wearers

BEWARE OF ‘MASK-WEARERS’. On first impression, ‘Mask-Wearers’ seem like they could be a ‘Guy-Smiley’ or an ‘Old Man Wilkins’ and they can keep this up as long as they want. Days, weeks, even terms. Until someone gets them mad. Then they tear off that happy-go-lucky mask they’ve been wearing all this time and release all the anger, hatred and disgust they’ve kept inside all this time. The results aren’t pretty. You can usually tell if someone has encountered the wrath of a ‘Mask-wearer’ - they’re pale, shaking and muttering, ‘I’m sorry’, again and again. If you think your teacher could be a ‘Mask-Wearer,’ ask around. If he or she is, don’t worry! Some of the best teachers I’ve had have been ‘Mask-Wearers…’. Just stay on his or her good side! 15 Lions Raw - 2010


Student Pieces Up in the Sky.

Mohammed Khairat

She got me up in the sky like a bird, She got me thinking 窶話out her day and night, Waiting for her call, feeling absurd, But to hear her voice makes the dark bright. She got me waiting for her too long, Like she is not to coming back to me, Our love and friendship that always seemed strong, Is ending, taking away all my glee. And, now I am left alone in the dark, With no comfort, no one to keep me safe; I walk alone and on my heart a mark, Alone, something missing, left like a waif; Yet, constantly you will be on my mind, As your tender loving left me blind. 16 Lions Raw - 2010


Across the Plain. Seamus Kavanagh

An icy breeze across the plain, A solitary figure, absent of name. Walking toward me, a curious gait, Is this the disfigurement of my fate? A complexion of pale and starched light, Hair that seems engaged in fight. Shirt scattered, tattered and torn, Chin, naked as a baby born. Intense and forever withstanding gaze, Boring my mind through the haze. A sudden curious inner pain, Caused by this figure, Across the plain. 17 Lions Raw - 2010

The Australian Film Complex The Australian Film Complex: Depression, for the sake of Art, or Acclaim? Martin Quinn

I’m writing this quite late at night after seeing a double feature of Australian cinema. I’m 16% more depressed and 90% more inclined to drink because of it. Depression is not a character trait or motif in Australian cinema; it’s the plot. Releases of note from last year prove my point: Samson & Delilah - cuddly romance story. Plot: two kids in a depressing place fall in love. But, totally still unhappy. Balibo - story about the inner workings of journalism, perhaps? Plot: journalists get killed. The ironic way. Hmmm, this isn’t sounding great! How about the films I just saw? A double of Wake in Fright and Last Ride - Plots respectively: a disgruntled teacher holes up in various desert shanties until his resolve is broken and he is driven to suicidal madness… ok, not too bad so far! A criminal on the run with his son learns the true meaning of child beating.

20

I’m slumped in my chair already just thinking about it. Don’t get me wrong, Australian film is fantastic. The locales, the dialogue, the chain of events are all uncompromising, brilliant in fact. But I often wonder, during these films of marvellous rapport, why? For art, or critical acclaim? Our industry seems to work to counter Hollywood where studio bosses

find it difficult to approve bold scripts and harsh endings whereas without these the FFC or Screen Australia wouldn’t give the screenplay a second look. Uncompromising theme? Check. Challenging-toanalyse main character? Check. Setting in poverty/desert/poverty? Check. Congratulations young Mr. Visionary director, here’s 1000 dollars. Go ahead. Make my day. My biggest complaint is not the fact that the majority of our films are so damn hard to watch. With Wake in Fright, I was at least captured by the filmmaker’s ability to make the desert heat leap from the screen, every last beer to be painful to drink and each decision more ironic than the last. The world into which the character is thrown becomes instantly easy to empathise with. However, Last Ride particularly demonstrates my original point, perhaps because I’d been worn down by Wake in Fright, or something about it made me instantly more detached – either the characters or the locale. I could not empathise, something about it was

gives our films such power? All empathy for these Freudian filmmakers aside why can’t anyone just be happy?

wrong. Almost as if the filmmaker was trying to plant these emotions within the viewer. Gritty realism is a hallmark in our films but alone it’s not enough. What we need to see in a film is another world, a reason to watch. A film should be a different representation of reality. The cinematography in Last Ride was beautiful, and naturally the outback was used to its full panoramic potential. But the idea of ‘Art’ in our cinema has become the reality, not a life amplified or in most cases not even dramatised by the actors. Ultra realism has perhaps reached a peak in brilliance courtesy of our country’s wonderful filmmaking talent. But why would we see a film simply to observe the horror of life as it happens?

The filmmaking gamble in Australia is making a film that a member of the Australian public might actually watch. And for what? Because the cinematographers might be ridiculed along the way by their alcoholic aficionados? Because they might make some actual money? I’m sure they could do with some of that. Are our films being made inaccessible just to have critics hail them as ‘Remarkable’? When a good Aussie film truly hits the mark, it can make you seriously mentally ill and still have you adoring the film. But films are intended to be escapist. Sure, give me a Wake in Fright occasionally so I can feel intelligent. But Australian directors, writers, and financiers need to understand that art needn’t lie in the deepest pits of hell. Making a film depressing will crush your audience into a crying submission sure, but the average viewer has enough to worry about. In trying to break with cliché our films may soon create a stereotype all of their own. So come on Australia! Give Nick Cave a pen, give George Miller an awful lot of money and shoot Baz Luhrmann; let’s make a film that will not make me want to kill myself.

And, this is the Australian film complex. Do not get me wrong. The aforementioned film was good, even if the ending was a bit of a cop out. Reality takes preference, a stark reality at that. Do characters have to be living in the deepest pit of mental despair to create art? Or maybe it’s finding the beauty in such horror that

Food for Your; Stomach Brother Baba Budan.

Darryl Tirtha

As you walk in the cramped little cafe down in the office side of town, you can’t help but notice the amount of chairs provided. Too bad they’re on the roof. Brother Baba Budan (BBB) is named after the 17th century Sufi Baba Budan who in legend brought the almighty coffee bean from Yemen to create the delicious beverage. Every day BBB has a choice of two beans, one house espresso and an everchanging single-origin bean. During peak hours you have to stand out the door

sweet undertones, like a wild stallion. The milk is excruciatingly perfect and the partnership brings forward a certain holy matrimony. It’s almost spiritual. But the real prize is the coffee called “Panama La Carledia Gesha”, a bean brought from the faraway bridge of North and South America. I think if Ghandi’s soul was available for sale it would taste like this coffee. There really is only one word to describe it. It is perfect. But in all seriousness, BBB serves one of the best coffees around (and almond tarts, for that matter), so put down that gravel quality Starbucks and be a real brother.

Local Coffee Review A Review of Cafes close to school. Jessamine Welsh

Near the corner of St Kilda rd and Lorne St, Krave @600 has the feel of a hospital cafeteria, with pre-made sandwiches lit up with florescent lights and a interior which would be better suited to a airport lounge. Not all is bad though. Surprisingly they do make O.K. coffee but with the almost continuous turnover of staff it is never reliable. The pre-made focaccia and sandwiches are actually alright. Just stay clear of the chicken unless they lie accompanied by a large drink. But if you’re looking for somewhere close to school to grab a quick coffee and maybe something to eat, then this is the closest. 3/5

Just off Greville St near the parking lot of Safeway, Babble Bar & Cafe is a relaxing and mid market café. It offers good coffee which seems never to be too hot and some of the best chips and aioli in Melbourne. The décor is something to be admired with the feature wall of dried leaves and the fire place in the corner gives the café an almost ski resort sort of feel. The music can be a little too loud

however, to enjoy a conversation. If it is bothering you, there is always the option (if the weather permits) to sit out side and enjoy the view of the passersby of Prahran. 4/5

On Greville St just past the train station you will find Palate, one of the upper market cafes of the Prahran area. If you can afford to enjoy the over priced chai latte, then go right ahead, though the coffee may not be the best for the price you pay. The interior is something to be admired with vintage prints of old advertisements mixed with the modern furniture, which gives with vibe of the surrounding area. The clientele is a mixture of Toorak types who think they are bohemian adventurers going to Prahran and young couples who use every penny they have to afford a life style they should never have if they want some kind of financial stability in their lives. 2/5

A brief description of what to look forward to in the new styled ‘Puzzle Paradise’. Campbell McKenzie

You just finished your long Christmas holidays, and now you’re back, stuck in St Kilda Road’s lovely un-airconditioned, stuffy rooms. You can’t open the windows for some odd reason, and all you can think about is why the school decides to torture us this way. Well, not anymore! With this new styled Puzzle Paradise, we hope to make you forget school for the time being, hope you can temporarily avoid the idea of learning and just drift back into the holiday mood you miss.

(1.) Bob was having a big party. He decided on a technique to get lots of people to come. He invited his five closest friends and said that they could each invite 4 people. Each of those could invite 3, each of those could invite 2, and each of those could invite 1. Overall, how many people did Bob invite to his party? (2.) An anagram is a word or phrase formed by rearranging the letters of another word or phrase. For example, rearrange “none” to get “neon”. It is not considered an anagram if you exchange a letter with the same letter. For example, switching the n’s with each other in “noun” does not give an anagram. Even though a word is not considered an anagram of itself, your task is to find a word that is an anagram of itself. If you can do the seemingly impossible once, you might as well find a second word that is an anagram of itself. 1. Five 2. Stifle and Filets 3. Three Degrees Below Zero

Virgo For the next few months you should really begin to focus on yourself so take a camping trip to the spiritual beyond but remember to take more wool than cotton based items of clothing. Wool will keep you warm even when it’s wet.

Gemini You need to become more confident and take over your life. Try wearing a fake giant moustache, or use a pogo stick to get around. That’s a great way to grab attention, and gain respect.

Libra You are going to have to start sacrificing some important things to get what you want. Just a tip, when removing your own limbs for science, remove them at the joints. It creates less mess.

Cancer Next performance you go to, become a part of it. Get involved! But heckling your cat while watching it play will just end with scratches over your face and those scars don’t go away.
