    lstp

    The SVC Long sleeve sport training top is available from the Uniform Shop and can be worn by students as an under-garment for PE and sport days. It provides great warmth during the colder months and complements the current uniform very well. The SVC long sleeve sport training top must always be worn below the House T-shirt and/or the College polo shirt during school time and sporting events. The only time it is permitted to be worn as the outer garment is during specified school sport training sessions. 

    College Sports Bag

Students should not be using local football, basketball or soccer clubs bags for this purpose. The sports bag can also be used for camps and excursions however it must not be used as an alternative to the College School Bag which is a compulsory uniform item.

    A Visit from the TCEO, Work Experience, Sporting and Artistic Success, 2017 Term Dates ....  

    Visit from Director Catholic Education

    Mr John Mula visited the College yesterday and had a tour of our facilities. He was very impressed with the new structure of the classrooms and is looking forward to visiting again to see the rooms in action. He was complimentary of the cover in the roof and was also excited about the new plans for the re-development of Dwyer Wing at the end of 2016 and their impact upon our learning and teaching programmes. 

     

    Work Experience

    As the last group of our Grade 10 students approach the end of their work experience I take this opportunity to thank all the employers for so willingly agreeing to having the boys at their work place. We look forward to further support from our employers and a reminder that a thank you breakfast will be held on both sites early next term where we can formally express our appreciation for their insightful support of our boys.

    Junior School Fair

    A sincere thank you to all our amazing parents, friends and students who made Sunday's Fair such a great community day. All in attendance greatly enjoyed the range of amazing food, games, rides and of course the excitement of the Chocolate Wheel! Special mention must go to P&F President Simone Ashby and her hard working team and to Mr Pinelli and Mrs Moate for leading the efforts of the staff and students in raising valuable funds that in line with our P&F mission will go to projects that support all students at the Junior School.

    Mr Terry Blizzard - Footy Colours Day 

    Co-Curricular Photos

    Unfortunately some groups were not able to have their co-curricular photos taken this week due to other commitments. Parents should not be concerned as we will have the opportunity for catch up on the day of the Sports Photos in Term Four.

    End of Term

    The last day of Term Three is next Friday, September 23. This is a normal, compulsory school day. In aid of cancer research the day will be “footy colours” day. Boys are encouraged to wear their favourite footy colours, irrespective of the code, and make a gold coin donation. Normal uniform should be worn to and from school.

    Safe Travels

    We wish the Senior French students “bon voyage” as they head off on their French trip next week. What a great opportunity for a group of boys from the bottom of the world to experience one of the world’s great cultures and importantly one of the world’s greatest cities in Paris. We look forward to the stories when they return. My thanks to Mr Prior for leading the trip, Mr & Mrs Aitken and Mrs Briggs for their support and mentorship, and in advance the boys for representing the school in an exemplary manner.

    Religious Education

    I have unfortunately needed to speak to a few boys about their attitude and behaviour in their Religious Education classes lately. I have reflected on this recently when reading ………………………. It is with this in mind that I feel compelled to make the following points to students and parents:

    • Religious Education is the core of who we are and what defines us as a Catholic College. It differentiates us from any other school;
    • When boys enrol at SVC they are fully aware that the heart of our College is our Catholicity;
    • Poor behaviour and attitude in RE will not be tolerated.

     

    Obviously all the above applies to all areas of the College, however I feel strongly that our faith and character must be cherished. There are very few opportunities in our current world for young people to consider matters of the soul, to develop an understanding of who they are and why they are, sometimes referred to as the meaning of life (even if they don’t realise this is what they are doing!).

    I look forward to working with the boys and parents in helping them understand the significance of the Religious Education program.

    RYDA Grade 10 Safe Driving Day 

    On Friday September 16 all Grade 10 students will attend the RYDA Safe driving day. RYDA is a one-day program, conducted at an out of school venue, chosen to highlight crucial road safety messages. Supporting the graduate licensing schemes, the program focuses on the key government ‘big five’ road safety issues of speeding, drugs & alcohol, fatigue, seatbelts and distractions as well as the importance of driving as a social responsibility.

    Further details have been emailed to parents via Parent Paperwork, however, parents can find detailed information and tips on how they can help with the road safety education of their son by visiting: http://www.rse.org.au/category/ryda/parent-resources/

    “Educational programs must open eyes, touch hearts and move hands in response to poverty.”

    Peter Henriot SJ

     

    Our Grade 9 Service Learning programme for 2016 is coming to a conclusion and boys have spent time in Religious Education reflecting upon their experiences both at home and on their Service Learning placement at either the St Vincent de Paul Community Garden, Strathglen Aged Care or Foodbank. Boys have had an opportunity not only to share their experiences with their peers, but also identify what they found challenging and how they faced this challenge.

    For many boys going out to do a service activity stepped them out of the comfort zone, into unfamiliar environments and experiences. Many were in situations where for the first time they had to work with and interact with elderly people with dementia, while others had an opportunity to see just how much food in needed to serve a large proportion of Tasmanians struggling to put a meal on the table, or the amount of food needed to feed the children who go to school without breakfast each morning.

     

    No, the Lord has told us what is good.

    What he requires of us is this:

    To do justice. To show constant love,

    And to walk humbly with your God.

    Footy Colours Day

    An initiative of the Sport Leaders is the organization of Footy Colours Day, to be held on the final day of Term Three, Friday September 23. This day allows boys to wear some footy colours (or colours of any sports team), such as a jumper/scarf or other supporter attire, whilst at school. Boy must travel to and from school in their normal uniform and can change when at school.

    The day raises funds for the Fight Cancer Foundation, which support children and young people who are living with cancer. As a fundraiser any boy wearing footy colours on the day is asked for a gold coin donation.

    Mr Daniel Lapolla

    “Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something” Max Lucado

    St Virgil’s College has long standing tradition of providing service not only to our school community, but more importantly to the wider community. Our College motto by deeds not words alone embodies what it means to be a St Virgil’s College student. At the heart of this motto is essentially putting the needs others ahead of our own.

    Over the course of three weeks Grade 9s were given the opportunity to go out into the community. These options included;

    • Foodbank
    • St Vincent De Paul’s Community Growth Centre
    • Strathglen Aged Care Facility.

    A special thank you to all of our providers for giving our students the opportunity to be involved. Each venue essentially provided a different way in which the boys could be of service. The boys were encourage to not seek the venue which most suited their interests but rather to think of how they could be of help to those in our community.

    The practical experience provided by these venues has complimented the work done within our Religion classes which emphasises the power and significance of helping those around us. I would like to congratulate the Grade 9 boys for the mature manner in which they conducted themselves out in the community, and a special thank you to those teachers involved in the running of the programme Mr Mitchell, Mrs MacGregor, Mr Ellis and Mrs Coleman.

    Tassie Hawks Premiers 2016 

    tassie-hawks-16

    Tassie Hawks Cup – St Virgil's show their football strength

     

    The annual Tassie Hawks Cup competition was held today at Aurora Stadium in Launceston. The year 9/10 school teams of Latrobe, Kings Meadows and St Virgil’s college battled it out in a tri-series to determine which of the teams played off in the grand final, competing for the state title.

     

    North West representative Latrobe High School unfortunately missed the opportunity to play for the cup, the team were defeated 7.13.55 to 1.1.7 by South’s St Virgil’s, and also defeated by Northern Team Kings Meadows with a score of 4.9.33 to 2.1.13.

     

    St Virgil’s headed into the grand final as favourites after previously smashing Kings Meadows 15.9.99 to 2.1.13 in the tri-series. Kings Meadows vowing to be closer in the grand final – and did not disappoint!

     

    A thrilling grand final followed the tri-series with a close game between St Virgil’s and Kings Meadows. The first half was well contested, with St Virgil’s taking the half time lead 2.5.17 to 1.3.9, by using their strong centre clearances and precise kicking to hit their forward targets with ease.

     

    To start the second half, St Virgil’s set their dominance by kicking the first goal 45 seconds in. Kings Meadows, with fantastic defensive pressure, did not let up, kicking a few quick goals to level the scores with 12 minutes to go in the game. One goal and one point a piece again levelled the scores with two minutes to play in the grand final.

     

    A late behind in the last minute gave St Virgil’s a handy point lead ultimately cementing their victory of the cup, Kings Meadows, with the clock against them unfortunately couldn’t get the ball out of their opposition’s 50, and finally a St Virgil’s kick for goal after the siren brought the winning margin to just 7 points.

     

    The attitude and approach from all teams to each game was first class. Hawthorn Football Club congratulate all competing teams for a fantastic series, and successful Tassie Hawks Cup Grand Final.

     

    Goals:

    St Virgil’s: Luke Swinton (2), Fraser Turner (1), Riley Oakley (1), Jack Stevenson (1)

    Kings Meadows: Chev Deacon (2), Jacob Goodman (1), Bailey Fullard (1)

     

    Best:

    St Virgil’s: Joel Millhouse, Jackson Adams, Lachlan Gadomski

    Kings Meadows: Caleb Canning, Will Murfett, Bowen Pearce, Harvey Griffiths, Grant Holt

It provides great warmth during the colder months and complements the current uniform very well. The SVC long sleeve sport training top must always be worn below the House T-shirt and/or the College polo shirt during school time and sporting events. The only time it is permitted to be worn as the outer garment is during specified school sport training sessions.

    A Visit from the TCEO, Work Experience, Sporting and Artistic Success, 2017 Term Dates ....  

    Visit from Director Catholic Education

    Mr John Mula visited the College yesterday and had a tour of our facilities. He was very impressed with the new structure of the classrooms and is looking forward to visiting again to see the rooms in action. He was complimentary of the cover in the roof and was also excited about the new plans for the re-development of Dwyer Wing at the end of 2016 and their impact upon our learning and teaching programmes. 

     

    Work Experience

    As the last group of our Grade 10 students approach the end of their work experience I take this opportunity to thank all the employers for so willingly agreeing to having the boys at their work place. We look forward to further support from our employers and a reminder that a thank you breakfast will be held on both sites early next term where we can formally express our appreciation for their insightful support of our boys.

    Mr Terry Blizzard - Footy Colours Day 

    Co-Curricular Photos

    Unfortunately some groups were not able to have their co-curricular photos taken this week due to other commitments. Parents should not be concerned as we will have the opportunity for catch up on the day of the Sports Photos in Term Four.

    End of Term

    The last day of Term Three is next Friday, September 23. This is a normal, compulsory school day. In aid of cancer research the day will be “footy colours” day. Boys are encouraged to wear their favourite footy colours, irrespective of the code, and make a gold coin donation. Normal uniform should be worn to and from school.

    Safe Travels

    We wish the Senior French students “bon voyage” as they head off on their French trip next week. What a great opportunity for a group of boys from the bottom of the world to experience one of the world’s great cultures and importantly one of the world’s greatest cities in Paris. We look forward to the stories when they return. My thanks to Mr Prior for leading the trip, Mr & Mrs Aitken and Mrs Briggs for their support and mentorship, and in advance the boys for representing the school in an exemplary manner.

    Religious Education

    I have unfortunately needed to speak to a few boys about their attitude and behaviour in their Religious Education classes lately. I have reflected on this recently when reading ………………………. It is with this in mind that I feel compelled to make the following points to students and parents:

    • Religious Education is the core of who we are and what defines us as a Catholic College. It differentiates us from any other school;
    • When boys enrol at SVC they are fully aware that the heart of our College is our Catholicity;
    • Poor behaviour and attitude in RE will not be tolerated.

     

    Obviously all the above applies to all areas of the College, however I feel strongly that our faith and character must be cherished. There are very few opportunities in our current world for young people to consider matters of the soul, to develop an understanding of who they are and why they are, sometimes referred to as the meaning of life (even if they don’t realise this is what they are doing!).

    I look forward to working with the boys and parents in helping them understand the significance of the Religious Education program.

    RYDA Grade 10 Safe Driving Day 

    On Friday September 16 all Grade 10 students will attend the RYDA Safe driving day. RYDA is a one-day program, conducted at an out of school venue, chosen to highlight crucial road safety messages. Supporting the graduate licensing schemes, the program focuses on the key government ‘big five’ road safety issues of speeding, drugs & alcohol, fatigue, seatbelts and distractions as well as the importance of driving as a social responsibility.

    Further details have been emailed to parents via Parent Paperwork, however, parents can find detailed information and tips on how they can help with the road safety education of their son by visiting: http://www.rse.org.au/category/ryda/parent-resources/

    “Educational programs must open eyes, touch hearts and move hands in response to poverty.”

    Peter Henriot SJ

     

    Our Grade 9 Service Learning programme for 2016 is coming to a conclusion and boys have spent time in Religious Education reflecting upon their experiences both at home and on their Service Learning placement at either the St Vincent de Paul Community Garden, Strathglen Aged Care or Foodbank. Boys have had an opportunity not only to share their experiences with their peers, but also identify what they found challenging and how they faced this challenge.

    For many boys going out to do a service activity stepped them out of the comfort zone, into unfamiliar environments and experiences. Many were in situations where for the first time they had to work with and interact with elderly people with dementia, while others had an opportunity to see just how much food in needed to serve a large proportion of Tasmanians struggling to put a meal on the table, or the amount of food needed to feed the children who go to school without breakfast each morning.

     

    No, the Lord has told us what is good.

    What he requires of us is this:

    To do justice. To show constant love,

    And to walk humbly with your God.

    An initiative of the Sport Leaders is the organization of Footy Colours Day, to be held on the final day of Term Three, Friday September 23. This day allows boys to wear some footy colours (or colours of any sports team), such as a jumper/scarf or other supporter attire, whilst at school. Boy must travel to and from school in their normal uniform and can change when at school.

    The day raises funds for the Fight Cancer Foundation, which support children and young people who are living with cancer. As a fundraiser any boy wearing footy colours on the day is asked for a gold coin donation.

    Mr Daniel Lapolla

    “Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something” Max Lucado

    St Virgil’s College has long standing tradition of providing service not only to our school community, but more importantly to the wider community. Our College motto by deeds not words alone embodies what it means to be a St Virgil’s College student. At the heart of this motto is essentially putting the needs others ahead of our own.

    Over the course of three weeks Grade 9s were given the opportunity to go out into the community. These options included;

    • Foodbank
    • St Vincent De Paul’s Community Growth Centre
    • Strathglen Aged Care Facility.

    A special thank you to all of our providers for giving our students the opportunity to be involved. Each venue essentially provided a different way in which the boys could be of service. The boys were encourage to not seek the venue which most suited their interests but rather to think of how they could be of help to those in our community.

    The practical experience provided by these venues has complimented the work done within our Religion classes which emphasises the power and significance of helping those around us. I would like to congratulate the Grade 9 boys for the mature manner in which they conducted themselves out in the community, and a special thank you to those teachers involved in the running of the programme Mr Mitchell, Mrs MacGregor, Mr Ellis and Mrs Coleman.

    Tassie Hawks Premiers 2016 

    tassie-hawks-16

    Tassie Hawks Cup – St Virgil's show their football strength

     

    The annual Tassie Hawks Cup competition was held today at Aurora Stadium in Launceston. The year 9/10 school teams of Latrobe, Kings Meadows and St Virgil’s college battled it out in a tri-series to determine which of the teams played off in the grand final, competing for the state title.

     

    North West representative Latrobe High School unfortunately missed the opportunity to play for the cup, the team were defeated 7.13.55 to 1.1.7 by South’s St Virgil’s, and also defeated by Northern Team Kings Meadows with a score of 4.9.33 to 2.1.13.

     

    St Virgil’s headed into the grand final as favourites after previously smashing Kings Meadows 15.9.99 to 2.1.13 in the tri-series. Kings Meadows vowing to be closer in the grand final – and did not disappoint!

     

    A thrilling grand final followed the tri-series with a close game between St Virgil’s and Kings Meadows. The first half was well contested, with St Virgil’s taking the half time lead 2.5.17 to 1.3.9, by using their strong centre clearances and precise kicking to hit their forward targets with ease.

     

    To start the second half, St Virgil’s set their dominance by kicking the first goal 45 seconds in. Kings Meadows, with fantastic defensive pressure, did not let up, kicking a few quick goals to level the scores with 12 minutes to go in the game. One goal and one point a piece again levelled the scores with two minutes to play in the grand final.

     

    A late behind in the last minute gave St Virgil’s a handy point lead ultimately cementing their victory of the cup, Kings Meadows, with the clock against them unfortunately couldn’t get the ball out of their opposition’s 50, and finally a St Virgil’s kick for goal after the siren brought the winning margin to just 7 points.

     

    The attitude and approach from all teams to each game was first class. Hawthorn Football Club congratulate all competing teams for a fantastic series, and successful Tassie Hawks Cup Grand Final.

     

    Goals:

    St Virgil’s: Luke Swinton (2), Fraser Turner (1), Riley Oakley (1), Jack Stevenson (1)

    Kings Meadows: Chev Deacon (2), Jacob Goodman (1), Bailey Fullard (1)

     

    Best:

    St Virgil’s: Joel Millhouse, Jackson Adams, Lachlan Gadomski

    Kings Meadows: Caleb Canning, Will Murfett, Bowen Pearce, Harvey Griffiths, Grant Holt
