College Open Day - this Sunday

Dear St Edmund’s College Family and Friends

We look forward to welcoming families and visitors to our 2019 Open Day this Sunday 26 May, 11.00am to 1.00pm. Our Open Day is an opportunity for parents and caregivers who are considering St Edmund’s College as the preferred secondary college destination for their son, to find out why other families choose Eddies.

Visitors will have the opportunity to stroll through our varied contemporary learning spaces, meet and converse with our teachers and students, see interesting classroom displays, sit down to performances from our talented Jazz Band and College Choir, appreciate our customised curriculum pathways designed to cater for the diverse needs of our learners, take in our world-class facilities and grounds and enjoy a complimentary barista coffee and snack at our alfresco café.

It is shaping up to be a significant community day where we can promote our wonderful College and help our visitors discern why Eddies is the right choice of secondary education for the young men of Ipswich and the surrounding region - now and into the future. Throughout the day our Eddies’ young men will be involved in the following activities:

• Tour guides
• Various Curriculum Demonstration Lessons
• Performances in Band and/or Choir
• Sport Exhibitions
• House Information Presentations/Displays
• Radio Interviews
• Waiting and/or serving

A full program of the day is attached with this newsletter.

I am sincerely grateful for the incredible commitment of our staff and students by their willingness to respond to the invitation to participate in our Open Day this year.

Celebrating National Sorry Day

Coinciding with our Open Day on Sunday 26 May is National Sorry Day. National Sorry Day is held each year to acknowledge and recognise members of the Stolen Generations. These were the children of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent who were forcibly removed from their families by Australian Federal and State government agencies from 1905 to 1967. The practice of forced removal was sanctioned at the time as government policy.

In 1997 the Bring Them Home Report tabled in Federal Parliament on May 26, 1997 recommended that a National Sorry Day be celebrated each year. Our College will be celebrating National Sorry Day next week. We do this because we believe that saying ‘sorry’ is the first step toward healing fractured relationships. It is a sacred act in our Christian faith enshrined in the sacrament of Reconciliation. We acknowledge that our College is built on the land of an ancient people whose ancestral elders continue to tell their story which is now our story.

We are proud that over forty of our young Eddies’ men are of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent. We are blessed to partner with their families and to be guided by the wisdom of our adopted Elder, Uncle Joe Kirk, to embrace the future with confidence by learning from the past. To all our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander brothers and sisters who carry the hurt in their heart by these past policies of forced removal of children - we say ‘sorry’.

Preparing for Senior Studies - Year 10 Subject Selection

On Tuesday evening it was great to see our eager Year 10 students speaking with Heads of Department and our invited guests from various tertiary institutions and industry fields about their subject selections for Senior Studies. Tuesday evening begins an important phase for our Year 10 students as they discern their chosen pathway for their senior years. Over the coming weeks all Year 10 students and their parents/caregivers will attend Senior Education and Training (SET) planning meetings. The diagram below provides a graphic impression of the three Senior Pathways options the Year 10 students are required to choose from – ATAR Pathway (AP), Variable Pathway (VP) or Employment Pathway (EP).

Our aim is to work with you and your son to help him choose a pathway that develops the skills, knowledge and awareness for him to take the next step beyond Eddies with confidence.

Australia's Biggest Morning Tea

Sadly, one in two Australians are diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85. The Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is a way to bring people together to raise funds that will make a big difference to those impacted by cancer. The idea is simple: friends, colleagues or community get together over tea and treats, to help fund the Cancer Council’s life-saving research, prevention, support programs and information. Each year St Edmund’s College commits to supporting this worthy cause.

During the week, our College staff gathered on Tuesday morning to share a delicious morning tea as well as raffling great prizes. Further to this, our students proudly represented the College, serving morning tea to over 200 people at the annual Biggest Morning Tea at the Ipswich Showgrounds on Thursday. Every dollar raised through our support of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea will help to fund the Cancer Council’s life-saving research and programs.

Biggest Morning Tea at the Ipswich Showgrounds


Thank you to Ms Adrianna Rimland who organised the College Biggest Morning Tea event and to the staff who brought along morning tea to share - it was a wonderful occasion. Thank you also to Ms Christine Grieve and the students who supported the Ipswich Showgrounds community event. Finally, I would like to especially thank the support of the businesses who donated prizes for our staff function: Fourth Child Restaurant and Cafe; The Cottage; Stylz at Amz’s Hair Salon and Sammy Powers Photography.

Reconciliation Week

Acknowledging Sorry Day is a significant part of the of the process of truth telling about Australia’s colonial history, which has been characterised by removal from land, violence, and often overt and unapologetic racism. Our nation’s past is reflected in the present, and will continue to play out in future unless we heal historical wounds.

Next week is National Reconciliation Week. So significant is the nature of this event, that both AFL and NRL Football codes honour reconciliation through rituals and the wearing of a special jersey. The theme of the week is ‘Grounded in Truth: Walk together with Courage’.

As a community, to achieve reconciliation we need to develop strong relationships built on trust and respect, and which are free of racism. This requires the staff, students and families of St Edmund’s College, together with all Australians, to understand and value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture, rights and experiences.

Next week as a school community we will focus our assembly ritual on how we can walk together with courage towards reconciliation and justice. The symbol of a native tree will be the focus of our ritual. Students will tie white ribbons to the tree as our commitment to move forward. Next week there will be opportunities for us to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

A Prayer for Reconciliation

God of Justice,
We come to seek Your guidance, wisdom and compassion
As we pray for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have been wronged in the past.
May our hearts be open to receive Your healing grace,
So that we in turn bring healing to each other.
We ask this prayer through Christ Our Lord.
Amen

Employment Information

Go – Graduate Jobs Directory

While the intended audience of this directory is university students, it has lots of useful information for students in Years 11 and 12 who are exploring their future options. This information includes:

  • Grad Stats – these show the destination of degree graduates (under 25 years of age), based on their field of study, four months after they completed their course
  • Career advice and self-assessment activities
  • Profiles of graduates who are now employed
  • Job search skills – including resumes, interviews, networking
  • Industry snapshots – covers different industries, providing information about the jobs within the industry, earnings, future employment opportunities, etc.

You can download the directory from the GraduateOpportunities.com website. Also on this webpage are specific ebooks for many Australian universities.

The Hidden Job Market

The hidden jobs market is a term used to describe jobs that aren't posted online or advertised. It is estimated to be from 50 - 80 % of the entire jobs market (depending on what you read!). To access the hidden jobs market, you need to network. Networking is not just about meeting lots of people. Effective networking means being focused by first deciding what sort of work you want. Then you need to identify employers who offer that sort of work. A helpful website that lists large employers in Australia is Job Adviser. Your social network (family, friends, friends’ parents, neighbours, etc.) can also help you identify employers.

It is important to put dollars at the bottom of your priority list, particularly when you're starting out. Also, you may not get your ideal job first up. It is more important to find an employer and a job that gives you a pathway you want to take. Approach employers who look promising. There's a fine line between being persistent and being annoying, so always be very conscious and respectful of people's time. If you say you want to work for an organisation, have a clear set of reasons why; saying, ‘because you look like a cool company’ isn't a very strong reason. Instead think about their values as a business, the market they operate in, their reputation, how they fit in with your own vision of the work you want to do.

Tertiary News

Tertiary entry questions from current Year 12 students

Q. - How do I apply to university for next year?

A. - You apply through QTAC for most Queensland tertiary courses. Applications to tertiary institutions in other states are through tertiary admissions centres like QTAC. You apply directly to all other institutions.

Q. - What is QTAC?

A. - The Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC) is a public, not-for-profit company that manages the application and offer processes for universities, TAFE Queensland and some private colleges in Queensland (three interstate institutions are also included). QTAC does not make the rules about entry to courses. The institutions make the rules and QTAC administers these rules.

Q. - How many courses can I apply for through QTAC?

A. - You can apply for up to six courses from any of the institutions that use QTAC. You receive only one offer (if you meet the prerequisites and have a competitive OP or Rank) at any given offer round. Find out more on the Preferences page of the QTAC website.

Q. - How are applicants selected for courses through QTAC?

A. - There are usually more applicants than available places for many of the courses. Selection is based on meeting minimum entry requirements (prerequisite subjects, folio, audition, etc.) and on merit (OP or Rank). Once minimum entry requirements are met, applicants compete on the basis of merit for competitive courses.

Q.-What is the difference between undergraduate and postgraduate courses?

A. - The term ‘undergraduate’ is normally applied to diploma, advanced diploma, associate degree and bachelor degree courses. ‘Postgraduate’ usually applies to courses you can study after completing a bachelor degree, e.g. graduate certificate, graduate diploma, masters and doctorate.

Which is the best university?

All Australian universities offer accredited courses that can lead to employment. Consequently, the better question is ‘Which is the best university for me?’ Consider the following when researching universities.

  • Is the course offered at this university a pathway to the job I eventually want?
  • Where is this university located? Can I realistically travel there? What are the transport options?
  • Will the university help me gain work experience in my career area of interest while I do the course?
  • How hard is it to get into this course at this university?
  • Are the courses at this university full-fee or are they subsidised by the Commonwealth Government and eligible for HECS-HELP?
  • If the courses are full-fee, is the institution accredited for FEE-HELP?
  • Where do students of this course at this university go after they graduate?
  • What support services are available at this university?
  • What co-curricular activities (sport, clubs, etc.) are available at this university?
  • What is the ‘atmosphere’ or working and social environment of the university like?
  • Is it important to me to go to the same university as my friends?

These websites can help you with your research.

  • QILT (Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching) can help you compare study experience and employment outcomes data from Australian higher education institutions to select the institution with all the qualities you want.
  • Rate Your Uni gives you student ratings for Australian universities.
  • The Good Universities Guide has a course and institution search function and information on careers and scholarships. It also has a rating section for all Australian universities.
  • Study Assist provides information on Australian Government financial assistance for further study.

Other sources of information are:

  • Open days and career expos – access information from the Open days and expos page on the QTAC website. Term three is big for open days.
  • University brochures – obtain these at open days, career expos and university websites
  • University websites
  • Current students at the university (you will have access to these students at open days).

Musical Performances

It has been a huge week for the Performing Arts Department with two events taking place and another to come with Sunday’s College Open Day.

Little King's Performance

The annual Little King’s Performance was held last Sunday at St Joseph’s Primary School. This was a great chance for our Performing Arts ensembles to entertain a disabled group. As many of the audience may not have the chance to play music it was a wonderful honour for the students to perform for them and bring a smile to their faces. Well done to all of our participants.

Performing Arts Night

Our Performing Arts Night for this term was held on Wednesday in the Performing Arts Centre. This was a wonderful event that once again showcased the large number of talented students we have at St Edmund’s and St Mary’s Colleges.

I would like to say a big congratulations to all students who performed at this event; they set a very high standard for our next Performing Arts Night in Term 3. Thank you to all of the staff involved in assisting me to make this night happen and a big thank you to our Performing Arts Captain Jackson Barker who MCd the night with Letiesha Parker (St Mary’s).

College Open Day - Sunday 26 May

Our last performance for this week will take place on Sunday for the College Open Day. Students in the College Choir and Jazz Band will perform twice for this event at 11:30am and 12:30pm. Students are required to be at the College in their full school uniform no later than 11.00am.

AIC Football (Soccer) Results - 18 May 2019

Round 3 Vs St Patrick's College

1sts – Loss 3 – 4 Another tight struggle where our work rate should have ensured that we came away with at least a draw; however this was not the case. The game began positively with some good forward movement being finished well by Connor Asquith. From that point we conceded two soft goals and we were only able to go into the break at 2-2 thanks to an excellent Ethan Whyte finish. After conceding twice more in the second half, we rallied and clawed one back late to make the final moments quite tense; however we were unable to capitalise on some strong possession down the stretch. Despite our improved performances, we have been unable to break through this season. We must continue to apply ourselves across all passages of play if results are to begin going our way.

2nds –Win 3 – 1 A very sharp first half where we created numerous chances and found the back of the net twice placing us in a commanding position at the break. Well taken goals in the early stages from Kerryn Ryan and William Eddowes made it difficult for Pats to find their way back into the game. The second half was a much tighter affair, with Pats growing in confidence and looking aggressive when moving forward. Declan Jolly and Matthew Kelk were excellent at the back, whilst Lachlan Wesener scored an absolute screamer late to ensure we came away with the 3 points.

3rds – Draw 2 – 2 It was an intense game of football that was very much in the balance throughout the duration. Eddies took the lead twice, only to let St Pats back into the game. At the end of the day it was our inability to clear the ball from our 18 yard area that lead to both St Pats goals. Great goals from both Barry Pillado and Connor Cash, with Luke Gannaway also having a good game between the sticks.

10A – Draw 2 – 2 Another strong home showing which should have yielded more points for the possession and chances created.Two come-from-behind goals displayed great character and fight to secure a draw. Two soft goals conceded from set-pieces, both very much against the run of play, meant the team had to come from behind twice. The first, an absolute screamer from striker Nikalus Scaroni, lifted the team to control the game. The equaliser, a result of excellent lead up play through midfield and quick passing and movements, saw Hayden Molkentien nab his first goal for the season, calmly slotting low beyond the advancing goalkeeper. A great team effort with refinements needed to tighten up defensively for Round 4.

10B – Win 3 – 1 An amazing performance both mentally and physically by all players! From the start of the match, right through till the final whistle the players put in everything they had to offer and deservedly picked up the 3 points. Great goals from Ethan Phillips and Adam Wallace in the first half assured we had a two-goal advantage at the break. In the early stages of the second half Caleb McGregor added a well taken goal, whilst Jake Thompson saved a penalty which prevented Pats from getting back into the match. Kai Bell was vital in the midfield helping out in both attack and defence.

10C vs Padua 10C Loss 0 – 6 The team played well but were outclassed by a strong opposition. The defence worked hard together throughout the game and Logan Brown performed well in goals. Daniel Tucker defended and fought tirelessly all game. Braydon Jones made some strong second half advances in the mid-field and provided our attack with some good opportunities up front. The team improved after half time and tried their best until the full-time whistle.

9A – Loss 2 – 3 Another tough weekend for the Eddies men saw them narrowly go down 3-2. Despite playing the better football, the players could not turn that into a positive result. Although it was a disappointing outcome, the performances have been improving every week. Another big week at training will ensure the team is up for the challenge against the football heavyweights of Marist College Ashgrove.

9B – Win 1 – 0 An excellent all-round performance and a late strike from Kai Brown resulted in a well-deserved first win for the season. All the players did their jobs and should be very proud of themselves. Travis Lake was outstanding at the back and Cody Knight was superb, working tirelessly in the midfield.

8A – Loss 2 – 4 After conceding an early goal we fought our way back into the game with a great strike from Xavier Wighton. Nicholas Luttrell was solid at the back and Tyson Golding tackled well in midfield while Jovany Jirima gave us some energy. Xavier scored his second goal midway through the half which encouraged hope.

8B – Draw 2 – 2 A valiant effort from a determined team today showed that the players are continuing to build us a unit. Strong performances from Marcus White and quality goals from Clay Baker and Siluna Nanayakkara.

8C – Loss 0 – 12 The team tried hard but were beaten 12-0 by a much better side. Despite the score line Thomas Cowell made many good sides. Riley Selfe was tireless in defence. James Town also played well and Harrison Baldry had a couple of good shots at goal.

7A – Win 1 – 0 After two close losses Eddies won a good game 1-0 with a fantastic finish that saw Aksel Klok put the ball into the top corner from a tight angle. Solid defence saw Eddies win their first AIC game.

7B – Loss 1 – 0 The 7Bs played a strong game against St Pats, losing 1-0 in the final minutes. Though a disappointing result, much can be taken from the team’s improvements in positional defending and controlled passing when in attack. As with last week’s game, the 7Bs had the advantage in possession and the team is looking to convert that possession into points.

7C – Win 7 – 0 An impressive performance saw the team win 7-0. Everyone had an excellent game; Cooper Yeh stood out scoring a brilliant hat trick and Peter Cleeland was impressive creating a lot of the goals. Well done to Mayson Carter our goalkeeper, scoring his first goal.

7D – Loss 5 – 2 With only 9 men, the lads put in a massive effort for the entirety of the game putting 100% effort into every challenge. Amazing goals and performance by Alexander Sayle and Kaleb Waiters. A very good performance by Nixon Johnston. An unlucky day all round.

AIC Rugby Results - 18 May 2019

Round 3 Vs St Patrick's College

1sts – Loss 0 – 50 An improved effort in parts - we showed distinct progress in our set piece kickoffs, scrums and lineouts; however poor tackling technique, body height and decision-making in defence cost us dearly. We also need to execute basic skills, whether it be kicking for touch or catch/pass. When we can execute these skills fittingly a well-rounded performance will follow. Hunter Pearce, Ryan Holden and Luke Warner had strong games.

2nds – Loss 5 – 50 The small ‘1%ers’ let us down today. St Pats were smart enough to exploit those small things that we could not secure. Nathan Curr scored a smart try from a good defensive read.

10A – Loss 0 – 47 Totally outgunned today - St Pats were a very well drilled team and they made us look amateurish. Three was the largest number of phases we achieved but St Pats defence prevented us from scoring. We defended very well all day with St Pats having all the ball. Best players Brayden Waddle and Thomas Collins.

10B – Loss 7 – 35 Good numbers this week with a full team. Great structure and discipline in our game plan enhanced by great team ethos to represent 10Bs proudly. Very pleasing to see good control in the phase play; however came up against a team slightly better drilled with more commitment. Despite this our skills sets, determination and commitment resulted in St Edmund's winning the second half one try to nil. Looking forward to taking the second half of this game into next weekend against Marist. Good efforts from Keegan Camplin, Blake Camplin, Flynn Hockings and Nathaniel Rogers.

9A – Win 31 – 0 A strong defensive performance. We used the ball wisely and found field position when needed. Ryan Casha was smart in his many positions across the field. Larry Siala ran the ball well, Tarek Smit was effective at the break down and Blade Gourley was adaptive.

9B – Loss 5 – 15 The game started positively against St Pats. The team's defence was solid having learnt from last week that they needed a more coordinated approach. With fitness and understanding of rugby improving, the players are starting to work better as a team. A disappointing final result; however promise was shown with a late second half try which was the result of consistent team pressure and an outstanding catch by Thomas Stansfield. Try scorer: Riley Woods.

8A –Win 60 – 7 The players put on a splendid display of Rugby Union. Both team and individual efforts made for a tantalising game in attack and defence. Great games from Reuben Acutt, Pheonix Clarke & Connor Westcott.

8B – BYE

8C – Win 44 – 15 Improved performance today, particularly in the area of clean-outs and running onto the ball; however there were too many high tackles from across the backs/forwards. Great game from Callum Hudspith and Joseph Glen.

7A – Loss 0 – 88 In a game where you can only control the controllables, we lacked the discipline to ensure we did our jobs. Decent game in patches; however we need to discover our shoulders and make best use of them. Working hard to improve.

7B – Loss 0 – 86 The players had a great start to the game displaying some key skills and dominating the opposition at times; however our lack of rugby autonomy allowed the opposition to set the pace and control the game. Outstanding performances from Elliot Cunningham and Angus Davis.
