The Principal

Welcome Back to Term 3

Dear St Edmund’s College Family and Friends,

Welcome back to Term 3. We return after an extended break, following our inaugural Staff Conference at the end of last Term. There were many stories of joy and hardship from events held during the break including the Confraternity Carnival in Charters Towers, an invitational Schoolboys’ Basketball tournament on the Gold Coast, a Cross Country Camp and a week of rehearsals for the combined St Edmund’s and St Mary’s School Musical - Rock of Ages, which has its final performance tonight at the Ipswich Civic Centre. To all the young Eddie’s men involved in these life- giving ventures and to the dedicated and generous staff and supportive parents and friends who gave up their time to create these opportunities, a heartfelt thank you.

I was fortunate to attend some of these events and witness the effort of our students to represent their College with passion and pride. The Eddie’s Spirit of courage, mateship, kindness and gentleness was very much evident in their conduct, manner and attitude. May we continue to embrace our Eddie’s Spirit inspired by Blessed Edmund Rice himself, who looked no further for his inspiration than the person of Jesus Christ.

Cyber Safety – The Three R’s

The first two days of the Term commenced with Cyber Safety expert Susan McLean speaking to students, staff and parents about the three R’s of cyber safety. Her message was clear and concise and she didn’t mince words when she delivered her warnings about the use and management of online and social media devices at school and at home. She stressed that before pressing the send or respond button when posting anything online or via social media such as an email, text, photo or response or when naming an online account or address always ask the following three questions:

1. Is it RESPECTFUL?

2. Is it RESPONSIBLE?

3. Does it enhance my REPUTATION?

If the answer is NO to any one of these questions then the simple response is - DON’T DO IT - because the consequences can be disastrous and potentially life- threatening.

Throughout Term three our focus during Eddie’s Men Can Time (EMCT) each week during extended Homeroom will be about engaging our Eddie’s young men to be respectful, responsible and mindful of their need to cultivate a positive reputation when using social media.

Thank you to the many parents from St Edmund’s and St Mary’s who attended Susan’s parent session on Monday evening. We were delighted with the turnout. We intend to continue these community engagement events and will look to partner again with St Mary’s College to attract quality presenters for future parent sessions.

Staff News

We welcome the following new staff to St Edmund’s College this Term.

  • Jonathan Tunny who will be taking Mark Currie’s classes while he is on Leave in Term 3.
  • Lachlan Marshall who will be taking Sam Sprenger’s classes while he is also on Leave in Term 3.

Please also be advised that Madelyn Hall will be replacing Mark Currie in Term 3 as the Careers Guidance Counsellor.

Prayers

We keep in our prayers Ms Helen Purcell, who is one of our Art Teachers, and her family, whose father John Nedderman passed away recently.

Please also keep praying for Ms Yvette Knoetze, College School Officer Administrative Assistant, who underwent a serious operation early this week and is expected to be on extended leave as she recovers.

Live, Jesus, in our hearts…FOREVER!

Mission & Community

Mission and Community

NAIDOC Week - 8 to 15 July 2018

NAIDOC Week 8 to 15 July

At St Edmund’s College we acknowledge and pay deepest respect to the Traditional Owners of the land on which the College is built. The 2018 NAIDOC theme "Because Of Her We Can," has significant links to our belief that ‘Eddie’s Men Can’ and celebrates the essential role that women play as active and significant role models at the community, local, state and national levels. At St Edmund’s College we continue to commit ourselves to walking together with all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People on the journey towards reconciliation and justice.

This year’s NAIDOC poster recognises the women who have fought for justice in our society. The words "Freedom", "Equal" and "Justice" stand out from the multi-coloured landscape, and a vibrant sun shines upon strong women who are fighting for their rights, maintaining resilience and keeping culture alive.

The work depicts this year’s NAIDOC theme, ‘Because of Her We Can’, which aims to recognise First Nation’s Women who have, and continue to make, valuable contributions to our communities. With our history books often documenting Indigenous achievements through the work of remarkable men like Woollarawarre Bennelong, David Unaipon, Sir Doug Nicholls, Albert Namatjira, Eddie Mabo, Vincent Lingiari and Neville Bonner, this year the spotlight shines on our women who have played equally significant roles in Australia’s history: Barangaroo, Pearl Gibbs, Mum Shirl, Lowitja O’Donoghue and Margaret Williams Weir, to name a few.

Prayer by Aunty Rose Rigney - NAIDOC Week 2018

Creator of all, Heaven and Earth

As we celebrate NAIDOC 2018 this week and the important theme of "Because of her we can"…

As we remember and honour those who have gone before, are here now and are to come...

Across this nation from every homeland….

As leaders and trailblazers, politicians activists and social change advocates, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women who have fought and continue to fight for justice, equal rights, our right to country,

for law and justice, access to education and employment

to maintain and celebrate our culture, language music and art…

We remember that they are and have been mothers, Elders, grandmothers, aunties, our sisters, our daughters

In many areas they are the invisible, the unsung, or diminished.

But they have been carriers of our dreaming, our songlines, language and knowledge

They have done all this because they have desired a better way of life, greater opportunities and equal rights for our children, our families and our people.

Their achievements, voices and unwavering passion gives us strength and has empowered past generations and paved the way for generations to come

We pray for words of encouragement, refreshing and restoring of strength,

caring wisdom, grace, love and vision for us now and for future generations of women all across this land…

We pray for a country where our people and our land thrive, with systems that are restorative and just.

Lord God renew our spirits and cleanse our hearts

Renew our minds and transform our lives

In your name we pray

Amen

These meetings will continue over the coming weeks in preparation for the Subject Selection and SET Plan (Senior Education and Training) Interviews.Queensland Core Skills (QCS) NEWS


During the holidays thirty students attended a one-day QCS workshop. This was a great response and shows the dedication the students are giving to their QCS preparation. The boys worked on the Short Response Item, Multiple Choice and Numeracy skills. I thank Ms Mulkerin for her dedication in assisting me on the day. I commend the students for attending.


This week our high performing students attended a Short Response Item QCS Master Class with their marker. The students were dedicated in their practice and I congratulate them for their concentrated effort.

How do you become a qualified psychologist in Australia?

To practice as a psychologist in Australia you must be registered with the Psychology Board of Australia. To be eligible for general registration you are required to complete a minimum of six years of education and training, which is set out in this useful diagram. This can be achieved via a few pathways, each of which requires as the first step:

  • A three-year accredited undergraduate degree in psychology plus an accredited fourth year (honours or post-graduate diploma), or
  • A four-year accredited undergraduate degree in psychology.

Courses are accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) and approved by the Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA). See a list of accredited Queensland courses on the APAC website.

The second step is to complete one of the following:

  • An accredited masters or doctoral degree
  • An accredited graduate diploma in professional psychology plus one year of a PsyBA-approved supervised experience
  • A two-year PsyBA-approved internship.

In addition to the completion of one of these pathways, the Board may require the passing of the National Psychology Examination prior to accepting an application for general registration.

The following are also useful resources:

Videos about jobs

One way to learn more about the jobs you are interested in is to watch videos about them. The myfuture website has information on over 500 jobs. You will need to ‘Sign up’ (free of charge) to enter the site for the first time. Otherwise ‘Log in’ and, once on the site, click on ‘Occupations’ and search for the jobs you are currently exploring. Most job descriptions on the site include a video. Each video lasts approximately three minutes. After you have viewed a video see if you can answer the following questions.

  • Name at least three of the main duties and tasks required in this occupation.
  • Would you like to do this job? Why or why not?
  • List some things you learnt about this occupation.

What digital skills will you need in the future

The Foundation for Young Australians (FYA), report that most jobs require some level of digital literacy. However, the level of knowledge and skills required may differ and will depend on your day-to-day responsibilities at work. The article lists four levels of digital literacy:

  • A digital muggle, requiring no skills
  • A digital citizen, who uses technology to communicate, find information and transact
  • A digital worker, who configures (such as website design or publication design) and uses digital systems
  • A digital maker, who builds and creates digital technology (for example JavaScript, HTML, Python and other programming tools).

As the world of work changes, the degree of literacy required for some occupations will shift. The article states that within the next five years this is anticipated to rapidly increase. 90% of the workforce will require at least basic computer skills, such as using email or company software. Over 50% will need to be able to use, configure and build digital systems in the next 2-3 years.

Read the article to find out how ready Australian young people are for this shift in the need for digital literacy.

Combined Colleges' Musical - Rock of Ages

It has been a huge first week back for the Performing Arts Department with the staging of our Combined Colleges’ Musical, ‘Rock of Ages’. Students and staff have spent many months rehearsing in preparation for this event. The result is an outstanding production that will leave everyone celebrating the music of the 80s.

The actors and musicians have been exceptional in their preparations for this show. This is a credit to all the staff involved. I would like to make special mention of Ms Petrina Gibson, Ms Fiona Cole and Ms Fran O’Sullivan who have spent many hours preparing the students for this show. Without their efforts this show would not be the extremely high standard it is.

I would also like to thank my band members for this show: Mr Jesse Gold, Mr James Barber, Mr Tommy Hynes, Mr Bruce Ramm and myself have combined to make up the band, ‘Arsenal’ for the show. These musicians bring many years of experience and professionalism with them making my job as Musical Director a very enjoyable one.

Thank you to you all who have come along to see the show. Your support for the Performing Arts department is greatly appreciated.

Instrumental Lessons

All Term 3 instrumental music lessons for students will be up and running next week. Please check the notice boards outside K205 for your lesson times.

Sports News - Week 1. Term 3

Holiday Events

We had several competitions and events happening throughout the break. The Confraternity Shield was held in the second week of the holidays at Charters Towers and we also had some Cross Country activities and the Gold Coast Invitational Basketball Tournament in the final week.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff involved in these events. Obviously staff are not required to give up time on their holidays but do so to ensure our students have these great experiences.

Whilst results did not fall our way at the Confraternity Shield Carnival, the staff could not be more proud of the way the students conducted themselves and represented the College throughout the week.

We had steady numbers at the Cross Country runs and many of our Basketball players gained great experience at the Gold Coast Invitational Carnival, where our Firsts side performed very well to finish with the bronze medal in Division 1.

2018 Confraternity Shield Carnival

Hosted by Columba Catholic College, Charters Towers

Columba Catholic College Charters Towers hosted the 2018 Confraternity Rugby League Carnival during the recent school holidays. Our St Edmund’s team competed in the A division of the carnival and whilst the results did not go our way the students can only be commended on their efforts. Throughout each match they worked hard to create opportunities, however the experience of playing regular Rugby League for many of the opponents was possibly the difference in several situations. No doubt this provided a wonderful learning opportunity for our players and will provide a good platform to develop our skills for the seasons to come.

Captain, Nathan Martin, Dominic Luafalealo and Caileb Powell, were all credited with Man of the Match awards during the week-long carnival, all well-deserved.

Off the field the whole squad were a credit to the College with their conduct and manner. It was a pleasure to be associated with these students.

The Confraternity Carnival presents two awards during the final presentations for each team. These were awarded to Dominic Luafalealo as St Edmund’s Player of the Carnival, and Nathan Martin the Spirit of Confraternity Award – both worthy recipients and should be proud of their efforts, as should all members of the squad.

The St Edmund’s College Skool2Skoolies initiative was created by St Edmund’s students in 2003 to highlight the positive contributions that young people can make to their community and to give back to the community that has done so much for them over the past five years of their lives.

Each year, Year 12 students from the College are given the opportunity to live out the College ethos and continue their ‘gentlemanly’ behaviour by committing themselves to raise funds for three charities which encapsulate the spirit of social justice within the Ipswich community, Australia and worldwide - The Ipswich Hospice, St Vincent de Paul and the Christian Brothers’ Immersion Programs.

Last year, through the dedication of students and charitable donations from local Ipswich entities, we were able to raise in excess of $20,000: a donation of $7500 to each of the previously mentioned groups. These donations assisted in creating a tangible change in the work carried out by these life-altering support networks. Approximately thirty students embarking on the 2018 Skool2Skoolies ride are continuing the legacy through raising funds for this worthwhile cause.
