    Musical, Work Experience, Athletics and Principal's Tour

    The Wizard of Oz

    After six months of rehearsals and preparation, the cast finally hit the stage for our musical 'The Wizard of Oz'. Our students and the girls from St Mary's put on a remarkable performance, showing experience far beyond their years. The audience were in a toe tapping mood and it wasn’t surprising that many of them joined in with some of the more popular and memorable numbers. I would like to congratulate all  students for their commitment to this production and also commend them on their fine performances.

    These musicals don’t just occur without much toil and effort from the staff and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all who were involved in giving our students such a memorable experience.

    Work Experience

    Next week is the start of Work Experience for Grade 10 students. Each boy will spend a week working at a work experience venue of his choice, gaining experience about what the real world may present to him in his working life. It also provides an opportunity for students to consolidate their thinking about their future and present ideas of what might be possible. I would like to thank all host employers who are taking on our students and providing them with such a a significant educational experience. We look forward to the many visits to check out their progress.

    Work Experience Dates

    Week 4B                      August 12-16                         Grade 10A&B

    Week 7A                     September 2-6                        Grade 10C&D

    Athletics

    As we go to print, students are currently involved in spirited competition as part of the 2019 House Athletics Carnival.  I look forward to giving you the results next week from a very competitive day of athletic action.

    Mrs Chambers and Mrs Messer 

    Last Friday we celebrated a very special assembly which was led by 6C. During the assembly Mrs Chambers shared with us all her experience in her recent immersion in Nairobi, Kenya at the Mary Rice Centre. All boys were moved by Mrs Chambers’ recount and photos of her time in Africa. We thank Mrs Chambers for sharing this with us. It serves as a timely reminder of how very fortunate we all are to be living in such a beautiful island home, Tasmania, to have nice houses to live in and food on the table every night.

    On Friday evening, the Tasmanian School Water Polo Grand Finals were held. I am pleased, and proud, to say that the Grade 5/6 Lobsters were victorious in their division of the Primary Roster. Congratulations to the boys for their hard work and dedication throughout the season. Thank you to the team of parents who dropped them off at training every Tuesday morning and to their coaches, Matt Costelloe, Tom Messer and Mrs Jo Messer. Thank you also to all of the boys, parents and staff who came along to support us.


    On Tuesday night we saw the commencement of the JSSATIS Basketball roster. Thank you to the parents and staff members who have put their hands up to coach a team, without your help we would not be able to enter as many teams. Boys are permitted to wear their sports uniform on Tuesdays if they are participating in this roster.

    Last week our Grade 6 students were fortunate to see the matinee performance of the school musical, the Wizard of Oz. Congratulations to all boys involved in the production. It was particularly lovely to see so many of our ‘old junior’ boys in the production.

    Science Week commenced this week. As part of this, Grade Threes and Fours had class visits from Young Tassie Scientists from the University of Tasmania. On Friday our Grade 6 classes will be visiting the Festival of Bright Ideas. All of these opportunities afford our boys to engage in hands on science activities which hopefully will ignite their passion to one day becoming a scientist.

    Next week is Book Week. The theme of the week is “Reading is my secret power”.  The boys are asked to bring a costume in a bag to wear in our Book week Parade to celebrate this theme. Costumes should reflect a book character and could be as simple as hats, wigs, glasses, scarves and other accessories. All boys will earn house points with spot prizes presented on the day for unusual and creative ideas. Boys are also invited (not compulsory) to enter in our Library poster competition. Posters should include the slogan “Reading is my Secret Power.” There are already some fantastic posters on display.

    Next Thursday 15 August we celebrate the Feast of the Assumption. Archbishop Adrian Doyle and Deacon Nick McFarlane will lead us in our celebration. A class from Immaculate Heart of Mary is also joining us which will be great. This Feast is one of only two Holy Days of Obligation, the other being Christmas Day. We look forward to the boys participating in the singing and prayers to recognise the life and death of Mary, the mother of Jesus, and her assumption into heaven.

    By the time this newsletter goes to print we will be well into the athletics carnival. Hopefully we’ll all be able to keep warm and dry throughout the day. Good luck to all competitors!

    Director of Identity

    Today we celebrate the Feast Day of Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop, Australia’s first Saint.

    Mary was born in 1842 in Melbourne and died on August 8, 1909 in North Sydney, 110 years ago today.

    Mary spent her entire life helping those who had been made poor; she understood the crushing nature of poverty, having experienced it herself as a young girl, and she recognised how poverty worked as a barrier to opportunities that many others enjoyed.  Through all the challenges and trials of her life she remained incredibly strong in her faith and true to her vow of poverty. She defended the weak, empowered the oppressed and stood up against corruption even at great cost to herself. She was supported by friends from all walks of life, religions and social classes and she worked in ways that helped people to realise their own worth and potential.

     

    We don’t have to look far to see that Mary’s legacy continues today in the work of those who teach us, who see our strengths and abilities and help us to overcome obstacles and problems so that we can reach our full potential. Sometimes this might just be a conversation, advice or support from a friend, coach or teacher or it might be ongoing specific help in meeting a seemingly insurmountable challenge.

     

    For the children at the Mary Rice Centre this care, devotion and love is evident every day in the work of their dedicated teachers. Just like Mary Mackillop, many of the teachers at the Mary Rice Centre make great personal sacrifices to be present for the most marginalised children of the Kibera and Southside slums. They live very humble lives, travel great distances to work and put in long hours including weekends and holidays. But most importantly they see the strengths, abilities and potential in every child.  They live Mary’s example by helping these children to achieve, learn and grow, despite incredible poverty and disadvantage.

    They work “on with Constancy and Courage”.

    Esther -  Occupational Therapist at MRC 

     

    Dear God,

    In Mary MacKillop you show us a woman of faith

     

    Who lived by the power of your cross and showed us new ways of living the Gospel.

     

    May the example of Mary MacKillop’s life of service awaken in us a passion for justice and a deep commitment for those who have been made poor.

     

    Help us to live in ways that respect and defend the human dignity of all, both here in Australia and overseas.

     

    May we be brave enough to stand alongside those who challenge hypocrisy, corruption and weakness and who speak up against injustice.

     

    May we share in Mary’s courage, see with her vision, and love with her heart.

     

    St Mary of the Cross Mackillop – Pray for us

    Amen

    Expectations in Class

    I have noticed of late a concerning number of behaviour incidents in class with students refusing to do any work or co-operate with reasonable requests from their teacher. Can I please just underline that in any school there are a number of non-negotiables, and of course that means treating others with respect and trying your hardest in all aspects of your school life. I would expect that all our students make every effort to meet the expectations of the College.

     

    Junior House Leadership

    Voting for these positions has closed and nominations have been forwarded to Mr Messer for approval. Badges for those successful candidates will be handed out at formal assembly next Friday.

     

    Assignments

    We are fast approaching the middle of the term, so boys should be aware of what assignments they have and when they are due. Boys should take the time to enter these into a calendar, either physical or online, and block out some time in the evenings when you will work on them. This will allow students to avoid the last-minute rush and the risk of submitting sub-standard work.

     

    Work Experience

    Our Grade 10 work experience programme starts on August 12 with Grade 10A & 10B.

    Boys not attending Work Experience during this period are expected to attend school, they will be provided with an alternative timetable.

    The next group will head out in early September. Boys in Core C and D are reminded to see Mr’s Gangell if you have any questions or issues.

     

    GYC Transition

    Please remember enrolment at the College and enrolment in your subjects are two separate processes.

    Please ensure you make the time to get it done as this will allow GYC to start building their timetable and allocating teachers where necessary. This can be done online. If you need assistance or are unsure please contact the enrolment officer, Mrs Pogorzelski, at BPogorzelski@gyc.tas.edu.au, or GYC Deputy, Mr Derrick at  MDerrick@gyc.tas.edu.au .

     

    If you have misplaced your login and password, please email Mr Webster for assistance.

     

     

    Reminder

    Grade 9 boys selected for the Creating my Careers day will be exploring their subject and course options at Warrane TAFE on Friday. Boys must wear their formal uniform and bring their lunch.

    Water Polo 

    Well done to the Grade 9&10 team who finished the season in emphatic style with a 20-6 win against Taroona HS in the Intermediate Grand Final. For some of the Grade 10 boys it heralded the end of their journey with school water polo, a journey that has seen them win four grand finals and remain undefeated since Grade 7!

    Congratulations to all team members and to coach Dean Wright who has sone an amazing job with the team.

    It was also great to see that at the same time in the adjacent pool, the Grade 5/6 Lobsters defeated Friends 6-4 in a pulsating end to end battle.

    Congratulations to Daniel Wylie (Grade 7/8) and Hunter Wright (Grade 9/10) for winning MVP Awards in their respective age groups for this season's Water Polo competition.

    Who lived by the power of your cross and showed us new ways of living the Gospel.

     

    May the example of Mary MacKillop’s life of service awaken in us a passion for justice and a deep commitment for those who have been made poor.

     

    Help us to live in ways that respect and defend the human dignity of all, both here in Australia and overseas.

     

    May we be brave enough to stand alongside those who challenge hypocrisy, corruption and weakness and who speak up against injustice.

     

    May we share in Mary’s courage, see with her vision, and love with her heart.

     

    St Mary of the Cross Mackillop – Pray for us

    Amen

    Expectations in Class

    I have noticed of late a concerning number of behaviour incidents in class with students refusing to do any work or co-operate with reasonable requests from their teacher. Can I please just underline that in any school there are a number of non-negotiables, and of course that means treating others with respect and trying your hardest in all aspects of your school life. I would expect that all our students make every effort to meet the expectations of the College.

     

    Junior House Leadership

    Voting for these positions has closed and nominations have been forwarded to Mr Messer for approval. Badges for those successful candidates will be handed out at formal assembly next Friday.

     

    Assignments

    We are fast approaching the middle of the term, so boys should be aware of what assignments they have and when they are due. Boys should take the time to enter these into a calendar, either physical or online, and block out some time in the evenings when you will work on them. This will allow students to avoid the last-minute rush and the risk of submitting sub-standard work.

     

    Work Experience

    Our Grade 10 work experience programme starts on August 12 with Grade 10A & 10B.

    Boys not attending Work Experience during this period are expected to attend school, they will be provided with an alternative timetable.

    The next group will head out in early September. Boys in Core C and D are reminded to see Mr’s Gangell if you have any questions or issues.

     

    GYC Transition

    Please remember enrolment at the College and enrolment in your subjects are two separate processes.

    Please ensure you make the time to get it done as this will allow GYC to start building their timetable and allocating teachers where necessary. This can be done online. If you need assistance or are unsure please contact the enrolment officer, Mrs Pogorzelski, at BPogorzelski@gyc.tas.edu.au, or GYC Deputy, Mr Derrick at  MDerrick@gyc.tas.edu.au .

     

    If you have misplaced your login and password, please email Mr Webster for assistance.

     

     

    Reminder

    Grade 9 boys selected for the Creating my Careers day will be exploring their subject and course options at Warrane TAFE on Friday. Boys must wear their formal uniform and bring their lunch.

    In an absolute nail biter it was great to see the the Grade 5/6 Lobsters defeat Friends 6-4 to win the Division 1 Primary Schools competition. The lead changed throughout the game before two clinical finishes from the boys decided the game in the last minute of time. A great team effort having won a nail biter last week to get to the 'big dance'! Well done boys!

    Water Polo 

    Well done to the Grade 9&10 team who finished the season in emphatic style with a 20-6 win against Taroona HS in the Intermediate Grand Final. For some of the Grade 10 boys it heralded the end of their journey with school water polo, a journey that has seen them win four grand finals and remain undefeated since Grade 7!

    Congratulations to all team members and to coach Dean Wright who has sone an amazing job with the team.

    It was also great to see that at the same time in the adjacent pool, the Grade 5/6 Lobsters defeated Friends 6-4 in a pulsating end to end battle.

    Congratulations to Daniel Wylie (Grade 7/8) and Hunter Wright (Grade 9/10) for winning MVP Awards in their respective age groups for this season's Water Polo competition.

    Today all students are participating in the annual House Athletics Carnival at the Domain Athletics Centre. We wish all boys well and look forward to some fantastics performances!
