A Glass Half Full...

Dear St Edmund’s College Family and Friends,

Glass Half Full

At assembly today we spoke about the Eddies’ Men Can attitude. We likened it to the ‘glass half full’ outlook on life which can be summed up in the following dot points:

  • Realising the positive even when times are tough
  • Approaching each day like it’s an adventure
  • Bouncing back after experiencing setbacks
  • Saying ‘I think I can’ rather than ‘I can’t’
  • Appreciating what I have rather than counting what I don’t have
  • Being thankful for the small joys in life
  • Focusing on getting up, rather than thinking about falling down
  • Listening to the voice of courage within, rather than the sound of fear from outside
  • Choosing hope above despair
  • Seeing the light in the darkness
Congratulations – Rock of Ages

Last Friday evening I took my family to see the final performance of the St Edmund’s and St Mary’s production of Rock of Ages at the Ipswich Civic Centre. To all the cast and crew - Congratulations on an outstanding show. The singing, dancing, music, stage sets, lighting and costumes took me back to my teenage years. I almost got out of my seat to play an air guitar solo at one stage. It was a thoroughly entertaining evening enjoyed by all. The production team deserves high praise for their efforts in bringing together students from both Colleges and creating a school musical that will be remembered for a long time. We are indeed among very talented and gifted students.

Future Leaders

This week we formally began preparing our Year 11 young men as the future student leaders of the College for 2019. From now until the end of the Term, Year 11 will be invited to consider putting themselves forward as a College Captain or House Leader for 2019. On Wednesday 25 July, all Year 11 spent the day offsite at Colleges Crossing Recreational Reserve where they worked in their House groups on a variety of leadership challenge and reflection tasks. On 15 August they will spend another day off-site at the Terrace Tennyson Fields to further explore their leadership calling and how, as a cohort, they would like to set a standard for others to follow. Early next Term we then engage the young men to consider the attributes of a leader by examining three dimensions of leadership through the lens of character, action and words. We hope these formative experiences prepare our future Seniors of 2019 to select College Captains and House Leaders who will serve the College community with humility, and express the collective leadership of the 2019 Seniors as a whole with distinction.

AIC Term 3 – Tennis, Basketball, Cross Country and Athletics

To all our Eddies’ young men who will be representing the College in the Term 3 AIC Competition in Tennis, Basketball, Cross Country and Athletics, we wish you well. We know you will represent the College with the Eddies’ Men Can spirit as your inspiration.

Prayers

Please keep in your prayers Conor Tweedy, a Year 11 student from St Joseph’s Gregory Terrace, who suffered a serious neck injury while playing for the Second XV Rugby Team last week. Conor remains in ICU with his family by his side after undergoing a series of spinal operations over the weekend. It is at this time we extend to Conor, the Tweedy family, the Principal of the College, Dr Michael Carroll and the Terrace community, our thoughts and prayerful support.

Live, Jesus, in our hearts…FOREVER!

Identity

Mission and Community

Heritage Mass, 23 July 2018

Heritage Mass

On Monday we celebrated our annual Heritage Mass. Throughout this Mass, we acknowledged and honoured the heritage of our community and the people who are a part of our story. The Mass recognised that our ‘heritage’ is a collection of all the qualities, traditions and significant features of life that have continued over many years. It is a pillar of our community that has been passed on from one generation to another.

St Edmund’s College acknowledges the way in which the individual qualities of students, staff and their families have helped to shape our community. It has also been moulded by the spirit of Blessed Edmund Rice as well as the Christian Brothers who travelled across the waters in 1868 to serve the needs of others. Importantly, 2018 marks 150 years since the arrival of Ambrose Treacy and the Christian Brothers in Australia, and our actions in celebration of Mass honoured their story as well as our own.

Whether your family came to this place and the St Edmund’s Community - by walking across the land as the Traditional Owners did, travelling by boat like Christian Brothers, journeying by horseback as Ambrose Treacy did, or of course by more traditional methods - each of us has brought our own qualities and traditions. This was beautifully reflected in the Mass through the collection of colourful boats. These boats were made by staff and students and were marked with the gifts and qualities that each member brought to our rich and diverse community.

St Edmund's College Heritage Mass, St Mary's Church, with Celebrant Fr Enoch, 23 July 2018

Opening Prayer from our Heritage Mass

Lord, we thank you for all the uniqueness of this community.

Help us to know your presence among our family and friends.

We pray that we are empowered by your spirit, so that our community may be a symbol of hope and peace.

We ask this through Lord Jesus Christ. Amen

2018 Shanghai Exchange Program

Visitors to St Edmund's

Visiting South-West Weiyu Middle School Staff and Students

2018 Shanghai Exchange Program

The Shanghai Exchange program for 2018 began on Thursday 19 July with the arrival of eleven students and four staff from South-West Weiyu Middle School, Shanghai. They were formally welcomed on the College assembly last week and have enjoyed a full week of activities: visiting Dreamworld, the Brisbane CBD, Lone Pine Wild Life Sanctuary and historical sites of Ipswich.

There have been opportunities for the group to be involved with Automotive, Healthy Living and Art classes as well as visiting classes with their individual homestay host students. Their visit will conclude next week after a tour to the Gold Coast and Brisbane South Bank, before flying home on Tuesday evening.

It has been a fruitful exchange once again, allowing the students from South-West Weiyu Middle School and St Edmund’s, along with home stay families, the opportunity to engage in some cultural understanding and friendship development.

Thank you to the ten St Edmund’s homestay families for opening their homes, along with staff who have hosted during this time. We wish the staff and students from Shanghai safe travels as they make their way home.

Mr Dave Mills, Acting 2018 Shanghai Program Coordinator



2018 Kokoda Track Immersion

Mt Barney Training Walk

2018 KOKODA TRACK IMMERSION

With only eight weeks until departure of the Kokoda Track Immersion group, training is well and truly underway, with walks extended up to twelve hours. This week the participants and some family members climbed the second highest mountain in Queensland, Mount Barney. With the peak being 1,359 m (4,459 ft) high, it was certainly a challenging day for the fourteen participants, having us leaving in the dark and returning in the dark. However, as can be seen from the photo below, the views made it all worthwhile.

Anyone interested in joining the walks for the exercise, or indeed interested in participating in next year’s Kokoda Immersion, please contact Mr Raddie (HOD: VET) at nraddie@sec.qld.edu.au, or phone St Edmund’s College Reception (3810 4400).

Parent Teacher Evening

Thank you to all the parents and students who attended Parent Teacher last night. These conversations are valuable as they provide the forum for students to reflect on results and with parents in attendance, to discuss with staff strategies for improvement.

Subject Selection Evenings


Year 10 students moving into Year 11 will have their Senior Studies Expo Evening on Wednesday 8 August. Heads of Department have commenced meetings with the Year 10 students to prepare them for their subject selection by explaining the subjects in the respective subjects in the pathways in the new Queensland Certificate of Education, including the ATAR Pathway, Variable Pathway and the Employment Pathway . Years 8 and 9 will have their Subject Selection Evening on Thursday August 9. I look forward to seeing parents at these important evenings.

Best wishes.

Carmel James, Assistant Principal Teaching and Learning


Stretch and Challenge Seminar - Year 9


On Friday 20 July, a group of Year 9 students attended a stretch and challenge seminar for junior high school students at Genesis College, on the far north-side of Brisbane. The seminar was organised by The Global Education Group, Academy Conferences and was part of their current South East Asia/Oceania tour which has seen this seminar recently presented in Singapore, along with upcoming events in all Australian capital cities and four events in New Zealand.

It was a fantastic day and our St Edmund’s students were able to see the many opportunities that exist for them in an ever-changing technological world. Throughout the day they listened to guest speakers, interacted with peers from a variety of schools, and had their voice heard in debate-style sessions. Some of the diverse topics covered on the day were, Justice,Truth, Beauty and Mathematics, Do animals feel pain? What is Science? What comes first: inspiration or observation? and, It is never right to kill a person!

The keynote speaker of the day was Rev Dr Andrew Pinsent, who is currently Head Research Director of the Ian Ramsey Centre for Religion and Science at Oxford University and is a former Senior Lecturer in Particle Physics at Oxford University. Dr Pinsent spent many years working as a Particle Physicist at CERN Switzerland, where he was instrumental in many nuclear research-based studies during his time there. His session was designed around encouraging the students to be ambitious and courageous in their thinking, and committing them to a broad view of education in which gifted students can maximise their full potential.

The day was a huge success and we look forward to being able to attend this seminar again in coming years.

Don’t know what types of apprenticeships are available?

On the Australian Apprenticeships Pathways website you can search by industry group (Arts, Culture and Performance, Automotive and Boating, Building and Construction, Business etc.) to find samples of apprenticeship and traineeship jobs and the training required.

Australian Jobs 2018 now available

Want to know the employment trends for jobs you are interested in? The Australian Jobs 2018 Report provides information about employment trends by location, age, industry and occupation. It will help you understand where the jobs are and what employers look for when recruiting. It highlights the changes in the Australian labour market, noting that large numbers of new jobs are expected to be created over the next five years. It also provides a guide to where these jobs are likely to be. You can download the Report from the Department of Employment website under the title “Australian Jobs – Publication”.

10 High-Paying jobs you Won’t need a degree for

There is much talk about the value of different qualifications when it comes to getting a well paid job. You often hear that the best (and most conventional) route to a successful and highly paid job starts with a university degree but not necessarily. Click here to find out about some job options that don’t need a degree and usually pay well. A word of caution – the salary range is a guide only.

Careers in automotive

The Automotive industry is broad and encompasses a variety of activities and businesses. These activities include repair and service of vehicles; retailing of vehicles; parts and tools; repair, maintenance, repair and service of bicycles, outdoor power equipment, marine vessels and motorcycles; and some non-car manufacturing. Click here to find out more about the many automotive sectors, employment and training snapshot, skills and more.

Surveying and Geospatial Science

If you like Geography, Maths, IT or design you may be interested in a career in surveying or geospatial science. These jobs are in demand making job security strong and salaries competitive. But what do they do?

  • Surveying is the mapping of our environment using mathematics and specialised technology. It’s the bedrock of town planning, construction and infrastructure projects.
  • Geospatial science takes data based on a location, then uses creative ways to map that information simply and meaningfully. This spatial data can help us get from A to B with Google Maps, or it can predict future trends, for example, which roads might flood during heavy rainfall.

To find out more about more visit the Queensland Spatial and Surveying Association and the various university websites who offer courses in these areas.

Using Career ladders to develop your Career Ideas list

The Careers page on the Good Universities Guide website has Career Ladders for over 30 interest areas related to subjects you may be familiar with. The Career Ladders are like Career Bullseyes on the myfuture website. Each Career Ladder lists jobs in four levels, according to the minimum training required:

  • Level 1 - Year 10, Senior Secondary Certificate of Education (e.g. Queensland Certificate of Education) or Certificate I or II
  • Level 2 - Certificate III or IV, or relevant experience
  • Level 3 - Diploma or Advanced Diploma
  • Level 4 - Bachelor Degree or higher.

How to use the Career Ladders to develop you Career Ideas list:

  • Scan all the Career Ladders and select those that interest you.
  • Scan the jobs listed in the four levels of your selected Career Ladders (you might choose to concentrate on one level). Choose jobs you are interested in finding out more about and write these down under the heading of ‘Career Ideas’.
  • Research each of the jobs in your Career Ideas list by clicking on the job in the relevant Career Ladder.
  • Delete from your Career Ideas list any jobs that you are no longer interested in, now you know more about them.

The remaining jobs in your Career Ideas list can be explored further by interviewing or doing work observation with people already in these jobs, doing work experience in the jobs, and/or investigating the education/training you need to get into the jobs.

What are transferable skills?

Transferable skills are skills that aren't directly related to a specific job. They can be applied to a wide range of jobs and industries. You may learn these skills on the job, at school, doing voluntary work, participating in sporting and community activities or even in everyday social interactions. According to many articles on this topic, transferable skills can include:

  • Digital literacy
  • Communication skills
  • Problem solving
  • Critical thinking
  • Team working
  • Flexibility
  • Resilience
  • Self-motivation
  • A strong work ethic

For more information about transferable skills and how you might acquire them, read the following publications:

2018 World University Rankings announced

The Times Higher Education has recently released its 2018 World University Rankings. This information may be helpful if you are thinking about studying at an overseas university in the future. You can use the information to compare universities from around the world.

Thank you to the more than 1500 friends of St Edmunds Community who attended our sensational musical production, Rock of Ages 101: High School Edition, at the Civic Centre last week.

Congratulations and Thank You.

"I would like to thank all those who came along to any of the performances. Your support is appreciated and I am sure you will agree that ‘Rock of Ages’ was a spectacular success. This was mainly due to the amazing and talented team of staff whose time, support and guidance was above and beyond. On behalf of the cast and crew, I would like to say a huge thank you to our magnificent Directors, Ms Gibson and Ms Cole, as well as Ms O’Sullivan for her vocal tuition, and most importantly the catering. Thank you Mrs Rice and Ms Collins, for stage management. Thank you to Mr Kirkwood as our amazing Director of Music, and Mr Gold for his guitar playing. We would like to thank Ms Whyte for her design and digital staging projections and the creation of our program; Ms Pozzias for the astounding props and costumes; and Mr Kemp, Mr McNamara and Mr Raddie for the set construction. Thank you to Ms Rimland for make-up and hair, as well as the many other staff who helped out on various performance evenings. We greatly appreciate your time and dedication, as your contribution and collaboration was the reason why this musical was such a success."

If you have a hard copy only of a photo, this should be submitted in an envelope marked "Valedictory Photo", including your son’s name, and handed into the Deans’ Room for scanning, before being returned to your son.

It would be appreciated if photos are submitted as soon as possible. If any queries, please direct to Mr Mills (3810 4496) during school hours.

Skool2Skoolies 2018 Sponsorship

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 give back to the community that has done so much for them over the past five years of their lives.

Skool2Skoolies 2018

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.
