Habituation

Dear Members of the St Edmund’s Community,

The sound of an air-conditioning unit is often unheard until it stops. The low-pitched white noise that gently sends cool air into our offices, lounge rooms or cars becomes so much a part of our world that it ceases to draw attention. Scientists would call this process ‘habituation’. Not to dwell too much on the science of it all, but it allows us to take a constant stimulus, like a sound, and put it into the background. We can habituate to many things: after a while we cease to notice the feel of our clothes; on a drive we cease to hear the hum of a car engine or we stop smelling perfume a few moments after its applied.

We can also habituate to information. During this Coronavirus pandemic, our community has been and will continue to be presented with many letters, emails and notifications. It is understandable that habituation can take place and this seemingly never-ending stream of information can blend into the background of life.

However, in what is an unprecedented event, I ask that as a community we make a conscious effort to be aware of the important updates sent by the College. St Edmund’s has always been a cohesive and strong community where we respect our relationships and take the responsibilities we have to each other seriously. Consequently, the College has enacted a Risk Management strategy with associated procedures. As this situation develops our strategies will change and evolve and your support will be greatly appreciated. By keeping current of up-to-date information, as a community, we can uphold our responsibility to help control the spread of this infection.


Vale Kevin Versace

This week the Ipswich community farewelled Kevin Versace who passed from this world, aged 88. Kevin and his wife Jo were heavily involved in the life of St Edmund’s and helped build the College we have today.

In the early eighties, Kevin was directly responsible, with a group of parents, for the construction of the College’s then outdoor education facility, Edmund Park. Edmund Park was located near Laidley and saw many St Edmund’s students spend their camp experience there. Kevin also set up the Uniform Shops at both St Mary’s College and St Edmund’s.

Our story is one of a school built by the commitment, sweat and love of a community of parents. The legacy of Kevin’s work lives on each day and continues to benefit our young men. Vale Kevin Versace, a true Eddies man.

Cultural Art Workshop

Sharing culture through art is an opportunity to educate our students in not only art, but culture and story-telling as well. This week a group of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students had a chance to connect to their culture and share some of their personal journey through an art workshop with Uncle Joe Kirk. This workshop is part of embracing the wisdom and culture of Australia’s First Peoples as we walk on the journey towards reconciliation and justice. The goal was to build confidence in our young men so that in turn, they can share and celebrate their identity with the wider community.



Students Prepare for Head 2 Heart Camp

Anticipation is building as students from both St Mary’s and St Edmund’s gear up for 24 hours of fun this weekend. On Thursday afternoon the participants completed their leadership training and found out who their little buddy will be.

The Head 2 Heart camp is facilitated in collaboration with Edmund Rice Camps and supports children who may be at risk or disadvantaged to have time out and experience a positive mentor.

It is bound to be a lot of fun! Check out the newsletter next week for the participants’ reflections on the experience.



Project Compassion: Second Week of Lent

In Cambodia, one in eight people live below the poverty line.This week through Project Compassion we learn about Phany (pronounded Parn-ee). Struggling to earn a living as a farmer in Cambodia, Phany was forced to leave her daughter behind in the village to take up construction work in the city. Thankfully, through a Caritas funded program, Phany learnt new farming techniques which enabled her to get a better yield from her vegetable crops and to conserve water in her drought-stricken region. Phany’s community also took part in training in health, nutrition, hygiene and disaster preparedness, arming them with better strategies to cope with environmental changes.

Let’s Go Further, Together! Please support the Project Compassion: www.lent.caritas.org.au

God of all peoples and nations.
As you accompany us on our Lenten journey
May our fasting strengthen our commitment to live in solidarity,
Our almsgiving be an act of justice,
Our prayer anchor us in love and compassion.
Awaken our hearts and minds that we may be one human family.
As we go further together.
We ask this in Jesus’ name, Amen.

What’s ahead for the remainder of Term 1…

Sunday 15 March: Combined Colleges’ Parish Mass 6.00pm
All are invited and welcomed to join us at Mass. Smart casual attire. Students should sit in the choir section There will be a pizza supper after Mass.

Thursday 2 April: Year 7 Retreat Day
Year 7 students will gather to share their first retreat day. The day will build on their experiences at the Year 7 Camp as well as creating connections with other students and breaking open the EREA Touchstones.

Student Results and Assessment

In last week’s newsletter, I explained to parents how to access your son’s results and feedback on EDE as the students complete assessment and receive their feedback in class.

Even though your son will not receive an Academic Result in Years 7 to 11, you will be able to view his results and feedback from staff on EDE. As I stated last week, this form of feedback is well supported by Academic Research about the impact of task specific and timely feedback, that is, feedback that is given as closely as possible to the conclusion of the task.

I do appreciate that this is a change of practice and a change of mindset for parents and caregivers, staff and students. St Edmund’s College remains committed to communicating with you about these changes. A video explaining how to access assessment and feedback on EDE is now available for parents on the Parent Portal.



CONTINUATION OF LEARNING PLAN

I am currently finalising a College Continuation of Learning Plan which will be made available to parents in these uncertain times of Coronovirus. I will contact you next week regarding this plan.

Best wishes.

Year 7 APEX Debating - 9 March 2020

Round 1 Results

We had a mixed bag of results in the first round of Debating. Year 7.1’s opposition cancelled at short notice and so they recorded a win on forfeit. Year 7.2 had to forfeit their debate, unfortunately recording a loss, because a team member did not attend. The debaters held a trial debate instead and were shown a polished performance by their opposition, so they were able to pick up some good tips for the future. They spoke well overall and will be in a better position to debate in the next round.

Year 7.3 commenced the season with a good win. Marshall Burton opened the debate with confidence; setting the standard for the evening. Our second speaker Aiden Hannigan perhaps stole the show, speaking with confidence and poise. The girls from IGGS spoke with flair and enthusiasm making it a close contest till the very end. Our final speaker Sam Morris ended our team’s case rebutting the girls’ arguments in an emphatic manner and summing up with style.

Please remember that your son has committed to Debating this year and needs to attend every debate as per the schedule. The times for each debate are posted on EDE, available to both students and parents, as soon as APEX publish them. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email.

Gap Year Program information events and due dates

Gap years – Make them Meaningful with a Purpose

Taking a year off after Year 12 will not necessarily assist you if you are unsure of your career path. Without a plan, a year out of formal education can be characterised by few ambitions or aspirations about how this time is spent. Alternatively, a formal gap year is known to offer many significant benefits. A formal gap year sees you in structured activities such as paid-work, volunteering and other forms of self-development related to possible future career options. This type of gap year enables you to try out a range of activities that can assist you in your career decision making. According to research, students who have a purposeful gap year are less likely to drop out of further study pathways.

Performances

As we near the end of term, the Performing Arts department is winding down as students enter into exam mode. I thank all students for their hard work and efforts in helping the department to get off to a great start.

Performances at Activities and College Assemblies

Staff and students were privileged to listen to two performances last week at Activities Assembly on Thursday and College Assembly on Friday. Performing Arts Captain Lachlan Wesener demonstrated his talents on guitar performing the Billie Eilish hit song ‘Bad Guy’. Lachlan used a looping pedal to layer up to seven tiers of sound which presented as if multiple players were on stage with him. This task is not easy, therefore I congratulate Lachlan on demonstrating his guitar and technology skills.

Under the direction of Mr Jesse Gold, the Junior Contemporary Ensemble performed Fat Boy Slim’s classic hit ‘Praise You’ at Friday’s Assembly. It was great to acknowledge the talents of our younger students on show, and wonderful to see the big smiles on their faces before, during and after the performance. Thank you to Mr Gold for all his hard work and efforts with this ensemble. Well done boys!

Instrumental Lessons

Next week will be the last week of instrumental lessons, unless your teacher notifies you otherwise. Overall, attendance has been quite good and a positive start to the year for the instrumental program. Students are reminded that you are required to bring your student ID card to every lesson to sign in and out of your music lesson.

AIC Australian Rules Results 6/7 March 2020

Round 5 Vs St Peter's Lutheran College

Opens – BYE

Years 8/9 – Loss 5.3 (33) – 10.13 (73). After playing St Peter’s in a trial six weeks ago with a 100+ point defeat, we knew that we were up against an opposition who would be confident in their abilities. A five goal first quarter had us immediately on the back foot. We re-grouped at quarter time and reinforced each player’s role and what resulted was encouraging. Our attack on the ball, our transitional play from defence to attack, our midfielders reading the ball off the dominant St Peter’s ruckman and our ability to convert scoreboard pressure was the best it has been all season. A 70 point turnaround from our last encounter emphasises that listening, learning and enacting has the team presenting in a much improved manner. Best players: Tafito Falaniko Ah-Ki, Julian Cruice, Jamison Wilson, Benjamin Watson, Jett Preston and Ryan Silcock

Year 7 – BYE

AIC Volleyball Results 7 March 2020

Round 5 Vs St Peter's Lutheran College

First VI – Win 3 – 0. A dominant victory over a team with some particularly skilled players. Our service was not overly strong early in the game but improved throughout. Our use of the free ball and attacking options were exceptional overall. Thornton Hendry played the game of his life while Callum Rose became a cult hero through his work on the net in both attack and defence. Thomas Albury was a consistent rock.

Second VI – Loss 0 – 2. We started slowly and then struggled to pick up throughout the game. Great passages of play were made; however, errors cost us the game.Eliminating these errors will be key to competeting in the final two rounds. Nathan Curr and Campbell Ross had good games.

Third VI – Loss 0 – 2 . We had a strong start to the match; however, our serving let us down and we gave away too many free points. Ultimately, we were unable to build the same pressure we felt from our opponents.

11A – Loss 1 – 2. A disappointing result that came from home team errors. We did not appear prepared to do the work in defence to create the transition in attack. This made life difficult for our setter, thereby attacking the opposition was difficult. Bailey Lyon made excellent back court attacks while Byron Williams was consistently steady across the court.

10A – Loss 1 – 2. The Eddies 10As won the first set 25-20, then lost the second set 22-25. In the third set they were down 5-10 but fought back tenaciously bringing the score back to a game-winnable 14-14. Unfortunately the set and match were lost 14-16. A very close contest from the team who learnt a great deal. Most valuable player was Zane Kaatz.

10B – Loss 1 – 2. A tough game for the players. They fought hard against a good St Peter’s squad which resulted in an entertaining game. Benjamin McCarroll continually executed throughout and Terence Abaijah-Griffin passed extremely well.

10C – Win 2 – 0. A good win. A number of unforced errors resulted in a close first set 25-22. After taking control in the second set through accurate serving, the team had a comfortable win. Great serving and net control by Dylan King and Christopher Baker.

9A – Loss 0 – 3. A great game of volleyball despite the score line. St Peter’s is a formidable outfit and it was good to see the SEC players push the opposition in the second set. In a game that was fairly error-free, the result came down to who had the better attack.

9B – Win 2 – 1. A great team effort saw us hold the play each set and achieve the win. Excellent serving games from Harry Noonan and Joshua Grbin helped us out of close sets and pushed the opposition all the way.

9C – Loss 0 – 3. The team can be proud of their efforts in taking the first two sets with six players. While ahead 10-8 in the third set, we could not close it out and lost 3-0. Nicholas Brown led consistenly from the front; however, the team could not pull together when it was most needed.

8A – Win 2 – 1. We lost two players in the twelve hours leading up to the game, but this did not deter the team. We have been working on net skills over the past two weeks and the results showed – dominant hitting and blocking. Lucas Baker and Angus Davis had great games.

8B – Win 3 – 0. An excellent start for the players. Strong serving from Ryan Prenzler, and the hitting from Martyn Leonard, Ashton Peek and Akol Akol won many points. Excellent passing from Aksel Klok set us up well throughout the match.

8C – Win 2 – 1. A very slow start with many errors, which led to our ‘gifting’ the first set to St Peter’s. A more clinical and focused second set assured a good set win.

7A – Loss 0 – 3. A very unsettled display resulted in us playing reactive volleyball to St Peter’s attack. Negative talk on the court, when we needed to rally together as a team, allowed cracks to develop in our usual settled passing game. A more conscious team effort is needed in the final weeks, rather than individual performances.

7B – Win 7 – 2. The players made it hard for themselves but showed some ticker in clawing their way to a narrow third set win. A great display of keeping the energy up when things were not going so well. Great job, team!

7C – Loss 1 – 2. A loss in the third and deciding set is always hard, but more so when we know it was due to our errors on court. A lack of energy and composure on serve were our biggest downfalls this week. We looked great at times, but needed to maintain this good play.

7D – Win 3 – 0. The players came out in the first set displaying great confidence with serving and passing. They managed to keep their heads in the game even throughout long phases of serving. A great overall game.

AIC Cricket Results - 7 March 2020

Round 5 Vs St Peter's Lutheran College

Firsts – Win 6/134 to 9/133. Winning the toss and bowling suited the bowling cartel of the blue and white. Blayde Klass achieved the early breakthrough in his first over, sending the stumps cartwheeling. Dylan McAteer took an excellent catch from the bowling of Harry Sammut, and this was followed by Sam Callaghan off the bowling of Patrick Towne. St Peter’s had four players who could not score and they still managed to reach a total of 133 runs after 50 overs. Patrick Towne, Geol George and Harry Sammut took two wickets each. Dylan McAteer with a man of the match performance bowled 10 overs for 9 runs and then top-scored with 41 runs. Dylan and Patrick Schmidt (27 runs) achieved a partnership of 76 runs that laid the foundation, with Sam Callaghan 15 runs not out, to secure the first win of the season. A great team performance which should provide plenty of confidence for the final two rounds.

Seconds – Loss 95 to 5/96

10A – Loss 54 to 3/125. The Eddies’ players were keen for payback on St Peter’s for their trial game loss at the start of the year. Losing the toss and bowling on a wet pitch, Eddies were able to restrict the flow of runs. Wickets were hard to come by which allowed St Peter’s some big hitting towards the end of their innings, eventually finishing at 3/125 off their 30 overs. Eddies started well with the bat but a string of wickets through the middle overs of the game meant Eddies were never in a position to chase down the target. Eddies were all out for 54. With two games remaining in the AIC season, the team is looking to end on a high against Iona and Padua.

9A – Loss 128 to 2/129. Good batting from Ryan Pickering and a last wicket partnership of 31 between Cooper Read and Fletcher Brown saw us achieve a respectable total. The shot of the day goes to Fletcher Brown for his perfectly executed reverse sweep. While this was a respectable total it was 20-30 runs short of what was needed to create scoreboard pressure in the run chase. Ethan Ketelhohn and Lachlan Allwood bowled well but the silkful St Peter’s batsmen passed our total in the 28th over.

8A – Loss 72 to 6/73. Eddies was sent in to bat and made 72 all out. In reply, St Peter’s passed the total in the 18th over, 6 wickets down. Unfortunately, extras was the top score for the opposition with 32, highlighting how close the team is to achieving an historic first win. Accurate bowling is the vital key to this future team win.

8B vs PADUA 8C – Win 4/73 to 4/57. Siluna Nanayakkara with 30 runs and Jake Coyne 13 led the way for us to chase down Padua’s total and win our first game this season. Good accurate bowling from Charlie Howell and Joel Edwards helped to restrict the Padua batsmen.

7A – Win 6/211 to 10/138. St Edmund’s 7A team performed strongly with the bat to put together back-to-back wins. Four players reached double figures; these included: Kaelan McNamara 22, Sam Morris 30 and Euan Hinchcliffe 25. The stand-out performance was achieved by Samson Noffke who scored 60 from 37 balls faced. In the second innings, Eddies claimed three, key top-order St Peter’s wickets through run-outs to severely dent the opposition’s run-chase. This week, the 7As will focus on reducing the number of sundries afforded to the opposition as fifty-eight (including thirty-seven wides) of SPLC’s total was achieved this way.

7B – Win 113 to 95. With the first over going for 11 we looked like we were on with the bat. Retirements from William Schreiber, Harry Durham and John Clark and a quick fire 20 from Kynan Jackson helped us get to 113 with the bat. Then the onus was on our bowlers. The players bowled well, backed up by their fielding, to keep St Peter’s to 95 and come away with our first win.
