    Parent Information Evenings

    It was wonderful to see the large number of parents attend the information session at the Junior School last night and I look forward to welcoming the new Austins Ferry parents to the school this evening.

    I encourage all new Junior School parents who are available next Thursday to attend the Parents & Friends Welcome BBQ being held at the Junior campus, 102 Patrick Street, Hobart at 6.00pm.

     

    Updated Information from the  Federal Department of Health - Novel coronavirus (nCoV) 

    Please find below an updated Federal Government Health Department Fact Sheet in relation to the Novel coronavirus (nCoV). The key change from our last communication relates to people who have left, or transited through, mainland China on or after 1 February 2020, must isolate themselves for 14 days after leaving China.

    novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov-information-for-parents-novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov-information-sheet-for-parents_2 (1)

    It has been disappointing to read in the media the levels of covert and overt racism directed to some members of the Australian Chinese community by some members of the broader community. Actions such as boycotting businesses, disparaging remarks, inappropriate social media posts and avoidance of Chinese -Australian people is borne of fear and ignorance. It is timely to recall that Jesus spent much time ministering to the sick, most of whom were ostracised by their community due to fear, ignorance and social pressures.

    As a community we pray for those affected by the Novel coronavirus and pledge to band together to support people working to support the sick and authorities charged with the responsibility of managing the outbreak.

    Father, your only Son took upon himself the sufferings and weakness of the
    whole human race; through his passion and cross he taught us how good can
    be brought out of suffering. Look upon our brothers and sisters who are ill, whom
    we now remember in a special way. In the midst of illness and pain, may they be
    united with Christ, who heals both body and soul. We ask this through Christ our
    Lord. Amen.

    Student Safety 

    With student safety foremost in our thoughts please take the time to read the safety items below in regards student drop off and pick up on both campuses. Your cooperation with these procedures is greatly appreciated.

    School Drop off and Pick up Reminders - Junior Campus
    A reminder for boys arriving at school, the first duty for teachers begins at 8.15am. Boys are to sit and wait in the amphitheatre to be dismissed to take bags, caps and blazers to their classrooms.

    After School Arrangements:
    Boys are supervised on Patrick Street for pick up from 3.00pm – 3.15pm. After that time they are taken back into the office area to wait for parents who, from time to time, may be running late. Boys catching a bus are to wait in the amphitheatre at the end of the day until 3.15pm when the duty teacher will escort them to the bus area at the bottom court of St Mary’s College.

    Boys meeting sisters or parents at SMC – if meeting or being picked up before 3.15, make their way across themselves. If being met by a secondary school sister or being picked up after 3.15pm they are to wait in the amphitheatre to be taken over by the bus duty teacher. Boys walking to parents’ workplaces, home or to catch other buses are asked to do so in a safe way, following our school expectations of behaviour.

     

    Austins Ferry Campus Traffic Management Plan

    The traffic arrangements for all vehicles entering the Austins Ferry campus have been designed to maximise student safety whilst allowing students to use the play space at the front of the College.

    The downloadable Traffic Plan Austins Ferry (1) clearly shows the arrangements, details of which are outlined below:

    • From 8am to 9am access to the College campus will be available only through the southern gateway. Exit will be via the western roadway to the Main Oval gate.
    • Vehicles dropping off students will only be able to travel on the western road which runs between the entrance and exit gate.
    • Parents may still drive up to Students Services and the Uniform Shop, however must turn right at the western roadway and exit via the Main Oval gate.
    • Students are to be dropped off on the western road (left side of vehicle) just past the road to the Uniform Shop.
    • Students will be supervised getting off buses and out of cars by staff and directed to safely cross the western road to the basketball court.
    • Please note that in the interest of student safety, no cars are to pass buses on the western road and must wait until all students have crossed to the safety of the basketball court.

    In the afternoon these arrangements are reversed to allow buses efficient and safe exit from the College property. Between 3pm and 4pm entrance to the College is via the Main Oval gates, however parents are asked to be mindful of buses leaving via the southern gate.

     

    Thank you for helping us to maximise student safety on both campuses.

             

               


    Date: 12-Feb-20  11:38  Edition: 2020 V.09 Ed.2 Section: From the Principal Junior School Senior School

    Deputy Principal

    Mrs Heidi Senior

    It has been a joy and a privilege to return to the College that I first walked into twenty years ago as a rookie teacher. So many things have changed since that day in 2000, and yet some things are unaltered - the humourous readiness of the boys, the sense of history and pride, and the pervasive commitment to social justice remain like old friends.

    And yet, so much has changed. There are realities today that would never have even entered my imagination then. Digital technology is simultaneously indispensable and distracting. We know more than ever about the world; research can be shared with a few clicks of a mouse. Better than any time in history, we understand how young people learn, and the strategies to support this. 

    My commitment is to work with every staff member at St Virgil’s to engage as professional learners, to understand each boy in our care and persist in the craft of teaching. Likewise, I am committed to supporting and challenging every boy who walks through our gates to learn whether it be in great leaps and bounds or in small, hard-won steps. 

    The toolkit our young men need for this task of learning is a complex one. I ask our parents and our teachers to work together with their sons to help them make sure they have everything they need: 

    • There are the practical necessities of books and pens and devices. Something as simple as arriving to class without a pen can sometimes be enough to scuttle what could have been a great lesson. 
    • The boys need good organisational strategies to keep on top of their learning. Colour coded folders to keep books in order or scheduled time for study, reading and rest to ensure each happen in manageable balance are good examples.
    • Attitude and mindset are perhaps the most important things. Too often, I see boys unprepared to have a go at a task or an activity because they suspect they will fail or make a mistake. Instead, every case of uncertainty is a learning opportunity presenting itself. There is no point in school if a student already knows what to do and how to do it. The glory is in the trial and error, the shaky first goes and the gradual mastery. In other words, the willingness to do the hard work of learning.

     

    Please also, I warmly encourage you to make contact with me if you would like to discuss any matter concerning your son and his time at SVC. I am best reached via email  hsenior@stvirgils.tas.edu.au and would also welcome a phone call or a meeting at school.

    Heads of Junior School

    A Special Guest

    Today we welcomed Dr Wayne Tinsey, Executive Director of EREA (Edmund Rice Education Australia) to the Junior School Campus. Dr Wayne spoke with our boys and shared a wonderful story about inclusivity from his recent trip to Lima, Peru. The boys were extremely attentive and had some interesting but also tricky questions for Dr Wayne. One of which was, ‘are you the man who says we have to wear long socks?’. Dr Wayne was able to deflect this one to Mr Messer. What was also a lovely moment was when Dr Wayne explained that his time as Executive Director is coming to an end this year but he will replaced by a ‘nice man’. One of our Grade 3 students responded with,’ I think you’re a nice man’!

    Tomorrow we are looking forward to celebrating the commissioning of our Junior School Leaders at the  College Commissioning ceremony at the Austins Ferry Campus. The Junior School Captain and Vice-Captain and House Captains will also be commissioned at this gathering.

    Next Thursday the Junior School Campus will hold its own event to commission the other leaders of the school who have been elected this week.

    Locks

    There are a number of students who still do not have locks on their lockers or do not have school locks. It is imperative that all boys have a lock on their locker to secure their property and also to have a school lock so that in case of an emergency that lockers have a school lock on them. Can I please ask that if a student does not have a school lock on their locker that this is rectified as soon as possible. Measures will be taken if this is not done within the next week. If there are any issues with this, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Canning - bcanning@stvirgils.tas.edu.au

    Anniversary of the National Apology to the Stolen Generations

    Today marks the 12th anniversary of Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s apology to the Stolen Generations.  This apology, made on behalf of the Australian Government, formally acknowledged the immense suffering experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people due to past government policies of forced child removal.

    “Apologies are significant because they are expressions of respect. They also acknowledge a moral code shared by both parties, and a common acceptance that it has unjustifiably been disregarded. They also imply a pledge to act differently in the future. The respect embodied in the apology is based in the common humanity shared by both parties, which lies deeper than differences based on religion, race and wealth.” Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

    Eighty-year-old Lorraine Peeters was in the House of Representatives on the day of the Apology and presented Mr Rudd with a glass coolamon, a traditional vessel for carrying children. Reflecting on the twelve years since the Apology, she reminds us that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples throughout Australia still suffer the trauma of removal, as collective trauma, intergenerational trauma and often as invisible trauma. She calls on us to learn, know and accept the history of Australia and to listen to and understand the stories of the Stolen Generations as " you can't help to heal someone if you don't know their story."

    At tomorrow’s College Commissioning of our staff and student leaders we will be formally presenting the Nine Nations Blanket made by Mr Mark ‘Bushy’ Smith, to our College community. The Blanket was made to acknowledge the First Nations of lutruwita trouwunna Tasmania; the North West Nation, the North Nation, the Northern Midlands Nation, The North East Nation, the Ben Lomond Nation, the Oyster Bay Nation, The South East Nation, the Big River Nation and the South West Nation.

    The Blanket was created to be used as a focus in our learning, sharing of story, restorative healing and in ceremonies and is a visual reminder of our commitment “to recognise past hurt, celebrate our shared humanity and build a better, more just and reconciled society” (SVC Reconciliation Statement)

    Reconciliation Action Plan - Stories, News and Celebrations

    An Invitation to Join the SVC Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group

    The St Virgil’s Narragunnawali Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) aims to support our College community in developing an educational environment that fosters knowledge and pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories cultures and contributions. Through our RAP, we commit to strengthening relationships, respect and opportunities in our classrooms, around the College and within our community.

    Within our community, there is unique knowledge and valuable experience that we would love to see reflected in the Actions that we commit to in our RAP. Therefore, to ensure our RAP creates meaningful and sustainable change we are inviting parents, carers, students and community members to by joining our RAP Working Group. This would involve contributing ideas, skills and knowledge and attending one meeting per term to plan and implement proposed actions.

    Parent Information Evenings

    It was wonderful to see the large number of parents attend the information session at the Junior School last night and I look forward to welcoming the new Austins Ferry parents to the school this evening.

    I encourage all new Junior School parents who are available next Thursday to attend the Parents & Friends Welcome BBQ being held at the Junior campus, 102 Patrick Street, Hobart at 6.00pm.

     

    Updated Information from the  Federal Department of Health - Novel coronavirus (nCoV) 

    Please find below an updated Federal Government Health Department Fact Sheet in relation to the Novel coronavirus (nCoV). The key change from our last communication relates to people who have left, or transited through, mainland China on or after 1 February 2020, must isolate themselves for 14 days after leaving China.

    novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov-information-for-parents-novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov-information-sheet-for-parents_2 (1)

    It has been disappointing to read in the media the levels of covert and overt racism directed to some members of the Australian Chinese community by some members of the broader community. Actions such as boycotting businesses, disparaging remarks, inappropriate social media posts and avoidance of Chinese -Australian people is borne of fear and ignorance. It is timely to recall that Jesus spent much time ministering to the sick, most of whom were ostracised by their community due to fear, ignorance and social pressures.

    As a community we pray for those affected by the Novel coronavirus and pledge to band together to support people working to support the sick and authorities charged with the responsibility of managing the outbreak.

    Father, your only Son took upon himself the sufferings and weakness of the
    whole human race; through his passion and cross he taught us how good can
    be brought out of suffering. Look upon our brothers and sisters who are ill, whom
    we now remember in a special way. In the midst of illness and pain, may they be
    united with Christ, who heals both body and soul. We ask this through Christ our
    Lord. Amen.

    Student Safety 

    With student safety foremost in our thoughts please take the time to read the safety items below in regards student drop off and pick up on both campuses. Your cooperation with these procedures is greatly appreciated.

    School Drop off and Pick up Reminders - Junior Campus
    A reminder for boys arriving at school, the first duty for teachers begins at 8.15am. Boys are to sit and wait in the amphitheatre to be dismissed to take bags, caps and blazers to their classrooms.

    After School Arrangements:
    Boys are supervised on Patrick Street for pick up from 3.00pm – 3.15pm. After that time they are taken back into the office area to wait for parents who, from time to time, may be running late. Boys catching a bus are to wait in the amphitheatre at the end of the day until 3.15pm when the duty teacher will escort them to the bus area at the bottom court of St Mary’s College.

    Boys meeting sisters or parents at SMC – if meeting or being picked up before 3.15, make their way across themselves. If being met by a secondary school sister or being picked up after 3.15pm they are to wait in the amphitheatre to be taken over by the bus duty teacher. Boys walking to parents’ workplaces, home or to catch other buses are asked to do so in a safe way, following our school expectations of behaviour.

     

    Austins Ferry Campus Traffic Management Plan

    The traffic arrangements for all vehicles entering the Austins Ferry campus have been designed to maximise student safety whilst allowing students to use the play space at the front of the College.

    The downloadable Traffic Plan Austins Ferry (1) clearly shows the arrangements, details of which are outlined below:

    • From 8am to 9am access to the College campus will be available only through the southern gateway. Exit will be via the western roadway to the Main Oval gate.
    • Vehicles dropping off students will only be able to travel on the western road which runs between the entrance and exit gate.
    • Parents may still drive up to Students Services and the Uniform Shop, however must turn right at the western roadway and exit via the Main Oval gate.
    • Students are to be dropped off on the western road (left side of vehicle) just past the road to the Uniform Shop.
    • Students will be supervised getting off buses and out of cars by staff and directed to safely cross the western road to the basketball court.
    • Please note that in the interest of student safety, no cars are to pass buses on the western road and must wait until all students have crossed to the safety of the basketball court.

    In the afternoon these arrangements are reversed to allow buses efficient and safe exit from the College property. Between 3pm and 4pm entrance to the College is via the Main Oval gates, however parents are asked to be mindful of buses leaving via the southern gate.

     

    Thank you for helping us to maximise student safety on both campuses.

             

               


    Date: 12-Feb-20  11:38  Edition: 2020 V.09 Ed.2 Section: From the Principal Junior School Senior School

    Deputy Principal

    Mrs Heidi Senior

    It has been a joy and a privilege to return to the College that I first walked into twenty years ago as a rookie teacher. So many things have changed since that day in 2000, and yet some things are unaltered - the humourous readiness of the boys, the sense of history and pride, and the pervasive commitment to social justice remain like old friends.

    And yet, so much has changed. There are realities today that would never have even entered my imagination then. Digital technology is simultaneously indispensable and distracting. We know more than ever about the world; research can be shared with a few clicks of a mouse. Better than any time in history, we understand how young people learn, and the strategies to support this. 

    My commitment is to work with every staff member at St Virgil’s to engage as professional learners, to understand each boy in our care and persist in the craft of teaching. Likewise, I am committed to supporting and challenging every boy who walks through our gates to learn whether it be in great leaps and bounds or in small, hard-won steps. 

    The toolkit our young men need for this task of learning is a complex one. I ask our parents and our teachers to work together with their sons to help them make sure they have everything they need: 

    • There are the practical necessities of books and pens and devices. Something as simple as arriving to class without a pen can sometimes be enough to scuttle what could have been a great lesson. 
    • The boys need good organisational strategies to keep on top of their learning. Colour coded folders to keep books in order or scheduled time for study, reading and rest to ensure each happen in manageable balance are good examples.
    • Attitude and mindset are perhaps the most important things. Too often, I see boys unprepared to have a go at a task or an activity because they suspect they will fail or make a mistake. Instead, every case of uncertainty is a learning opportunity presenting itself. There is no point in school if a student already knows what to do and how to do it. The glory is in the trial and error, the shaky first goes and the gradual mastery. In other words, the willingness to do the hard work of learning.

     

    Please also, I warmly encourage you to make contact with me if you would like to discuss any matter concerning your son and his time at SVC. I am best reached via email  hsenior@stvirgils.tas.edu.au and would also welcome a phone call or a meeting at school.

    Heads of Junior School

    A Special Guest

    Today we welcomed Dr Wayne Tinsey, Executive Director of EREA (Edmund Rice Education Australia) to the Junior School Campus. Dr Wayne spoke with our boys and shared a wonderful story about inclusivity from his recent trip to Lima, Peru. The boys were extremely attentive and had some interesting but also tricky questions for Dr Wayne. One of which was, ‘are you the man who says we have to wear long socks?’. Dr Wayne was able to deflect this one to Mr Messer. What was also a lovely moment was when Dr Wayne explained that his time as Executive Director is coming to an end this year but he will replaced by a ‘nice man’. One of our Grade 3 students responded with,’ I think you’re a nice man’!

    Tomorrow we are looking forward to celebrating the commissioning of our Junior School Leaders at the  College Commissioning ceremony at the Austins Ferry Campus. The Junior School Captain and Vice-Captain and House Captains will also be commissioned at this gathering.

    Next Thursday the Junior School Campus will hold its own event to commission the other leaders of the school who have been elected this week.

    Locks

    There are a number of students who still do not have locks on their lockers or do not have school locks. It is imperative that all boys have a lock on their locker to secure their property and also to have a school lock so that in case of an emergency that lockers have a school lock on them. Can I please ask that if a student does not have a school lock on their locker that this is rectified as soon as possible. Measures will be taken if this is not done within the next week. If there are any issues with this, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Canning - bcanning@stvirgils.tas.edu.au

    Anniversary of the National Apology to the Stolen Generations

    Today marks the 12th anniversary of Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s apology to the Stolen Generations.  This apology, made on behalf of the Australian Government, formally acknowledged the immense suffering experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people due to past government policies of forced child removal.

    “Apologies are significant because they are expressions of respect. They also acknowledge a moral code shared by both parties, and a common acceptance that it has unjustifiably been disregarded. They also imply a pledge to act differently in the future. The respect embodied in the apology is based in the common humanity shared by both parties, which lies deeper than differences based on religion, race and wealth.” Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

    Eighty-year-old Lorraine Peeters was in the House of Representatives on the day of the Apology and presented Mr Rudd with a glass coolamon, a traditional vessel for carrying children. Reflecting on the twelve years since the Apology, she reminds us that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples throughout Australia still suffer the trauma of removal, as collective trauma, intergenerational trauma and often as invisible trauma. She calls on us to learn, know and accept the history of Australia and to listen to and understand the stories of the Stolen Generations as " you can't help to heal someone if you don't know their story."

    At tomorrow’s College Commissioning of our staff and student leaders we will be formally presenting the Nine Nations Blanket made by Mr Mark ‘Bushy’ Smith, to our College community. The Blanket was made to acknowledge the First Nations of lutruwita trouwunna Tasmania; the North West Nation, the North Nation, the Northern Midlands Nation, The North East Nation, the Ben Lomond Nation, the Oyster Bay Nation, The South East Nation, the Big River Nation and the South West Nation.

    The Blanket was created to be used as a focus in our learning, sharing of story, restorative healing and in ceremonies and is a visual reminder of our commitment “to recognise past hurt, celebrate our shared humanity and build a better, more just and reconciled society” (SVC Reconciliation Statement)

    An Invitation to Join the SVC Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group

    The St Virgil’s Narragunnawali Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) aims to support our College community in developing an educational environment that fosters knowledge and pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories cultures and contributions. Through our RAP, we commit to strengthening relationships, respect and opportunities in our classrooms, around the College and within our community.

Therefore, to ensure our RAP creates meaningful and sustainable change we are inviting parents, carers, students and community members to by joining our RAP Working Group. This would involve contributing ideas, skills and knowledge and attending one meeting per term to plan and implement proposed actions.
