Celebrating our Edmund Rice Story

Dear Parents and Friends of St Edmund’s College

Today is Blessed Edmund Rice’s Feast Day. We join our fellow EREA school communities across Australia in celebrating the life of Blessed Edmund Rice who started the first school in Waterford, Ireland in 1806. Today 35,000 students across Australia are educated in EREA schools and over 200,000 across the world are students in schools that were inspired by Edmund Rice. His story is one of service to the poor and marginalised, dedication to the education of young people, commitment to working with people to enrich the lives of others and dedication to the Gospel message.

Today we had a wonderful celebration where we gathered for Mass in the College Hall and then walked down to St Mary’s Church for Eucharist. During his homily Fr Stephen Bliss interviewed our College Captains, Nick, Lachlan, Ben and Logan and asked them to share the obstacles and disturbances in their lives that have shaped and influenced them. The Captains spoke with honesty and humility. It was inspirational listening to them and hearing their Eddies story. Throughout the day special activities were organised including a Homeroom Challenge, Year and House Meetings and practice for the Choir competition. It was a terrific day full of joyful celebration.

I would especially like to thank Marysia Rice and her team for the overall organisation of the day which included a beautiful liturgy where each of us were represented in a colourful window motif placed on St Mary’s altar during Mass. This window represented the light that we bring to others and the light that others bring to us. We are truly blessed to be part of a College community who creates these life-giving experiences.

I share with you a reflection from Brother Paul Oakes, who is the President of the Edmund Rice Education Australia Council.

“An English journalist, Suzanne Moore, in speaking of the response of New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern to the Christchurch horror wrote: 'We have seen the qualities that define leadership in such a way that it is clear she is a lioness and that to call so many of our current leaders donkeys is a disservice to hardworking donkeys the world over'.”

Unfortunately, there are so many situations and occurrences recently in the world where leaders have shown such poor responses that we might well find ourselves agreeing with Suzanne Moore. The qualities that impressed this journalist so much was the speed of Jacinda Ardern’s response, the information that she shared with her people and the language that she gave them ‘to speak about the unspeakable, to vocalise the shock and sadness.” In supporting the victims Jacinda Ardern said “We cannot know your grief, but we can walk with you at every stage. We can and we will surround you with aroha, manaakitanga, and all that makes us.”

Evident was the compassion and empathy and the stress on the unity of the people. There was not the bellicose fury of those who seek to revenge, to name or to punish. This leader through her strength, her words and her actions sought to assuage the grief of a nation and all of its peoples.”

It is only last week that we celebrated ANZAC Day and, in reflecting on leadership, the leadership of one of the heroes of the Second World War came to mind. Sir (Ernest) Edward “Weary” Dunlop has been acclaimed as a great inspiring Australian leader. Fr Bob Maguire of Melbourne fame recalls that “Weary was asked what he learned during his time working with the sick, wounded and dying in Changi, he answered, ‘I learned to put others first’.”

The story of Weary Dunlop’s service of others during his time in captivity is legendary, putting his own life at risk to protect others, to provide medical services with little equipment and to lift the spirits of his fellow prisoners. He turned despair into hope. His healing continued after the War in medicine but more broadly. In the face of a nation that felt the wounds of the war he rose above the natural inclination to feel hate and anger and instead promoted Australian-Asian relations.”

We are still in the Church’s season of Easter. At this time, Christians reflect on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Gospels show that throughout his life Jesus challenged the status quo and put people first. He touched the lepers, he spoke to those on the edge of society and ate with “publicans and sinners”. His leadership was one of compassion for the weak and challenge for the self-righteous. It was directed to his claim ‘I have come to give you life – life in its fullness’. And then in his death he forgave his tormentors.”

The story did not end there. Christ, the anointed one, is still with us through the Spirit. In his letter to the Ephesians Paul prayed “that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”

Jacinda Ardern spoke of surrounding those suffering with aroha (love) and Weary Dunlop took many a beating for his fellow captives. Jesus in his teaching, in his life and in his death proclaimed with every element of his being the love that God has for us. A love that he asks us to share, ‘Love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another’.”

Hopefully none of us will be called to exercise leadership in the extreme situations described above but we each have a role to play for the people and circumstances that we meet in our lives. On the fifth of May we celebrate the Feast Day of Blessed Edmund Rice, the Founder of the Christian Brothers and the Presentation Brothers. Edmund was someone who saw a need in his own time and decided to do something about it. He invited others to join him in providing education and used his business skills to advance the establishment of schools. His obituary detailed the need.”

His avocation brought him into immediate contact with the working classes. He perceived that, in many instances, irreligion proceeded from their ignorance – and that to its prevalence much of the crime that abounded could also be traced. He lived in a part of the city where vice and ignorance prevailed to a greater extent than elsewhere. … Mr Rice having once embarked in the cause he undertook was resolved to persevere…”

The work of Edmund and his brothers, according to some historians, had brought major changes to the “rough masses” by promoting “the pursuit of useful knowledge and in the habits of virtuous and honourable industry.” They played a vital part with the teaching Sisters in effecting ‘a radical transformation of Catholic culture’.”

We can each show the compassion and concern of leaders and work for the betterment of those with whom we come in contact in our day to day existence. Edmund gives us an example as recalled by one of the students.”

He was very affectionate and kind to the children. Rich and poor were equally dear to him. When leaving school the boys shook hands with him. Next morning if they had been beaten by their parents they would show him the place to make it well."

May we each and our leaders, both those in the Church and those in civil society, surround all in the love and compassion that will help us grow to our full humanity.”

Eddies Race Day – May 4

Tomorrow is our annual Eddies Race Day held at the Ipswich Turf Club. Please see the flyer attached. I hope that you can join our community in what is sure to be another fun day out at the races and an opportunity to have a little flutter on the locals. Eddies Race Day is a signature event for the College Foundation that assists in raising funds for various College building projects as well as providing financial support for students whose families have fallen on tough times financially through no fault of their own. I hope you can come along and support our College.

Term 2 AIC – Chess, Football and Rugby Union

All the very best to our Chess, Football and Rugby Union teams who will have their first round games in the Term 2 AIC competition this Saturday against Villa. Our First Rugby Union will play their opening round on Tuesday May 7 at 3.30pm on Mulkerin Oval at the College. We encourage families and supporters to come along and ‘fill the hill’ in support of our Firsts Rugby team. Thank you to all our coaches, managers and support staff who have prepared the players over the preceding weeks and months.

Feast Day of Blessed Edmund Rice

An incredible sense of joy was present in our Edmund Rice Day celebrations today. The theme of the day was ‘Look out the window- Own it’. This message gave depth to our 2019 College Theme. During the Mass we were reminded of how Blessed Edmund Rice was challenged in his time to step beyond his comfort zone. He was challenged to ‘look out the window’ and to use his talents and passion to make our world a better place.

During Mass, the College Captains shared reflections with the community on things that stop them from ‘owning it’ and those people and inspirations that remind them, that they have the capacity to do more. Our theme was also reflected in the community symbol, which was a window. The window, a bright and colourful image, will serve as a reminder to all staff and students, of our ability and responsibility to serve others.



The way our young men participated in the Mass, engaged in Homeroom challenge activities, and the spirit of community that was enjoyed as we shared cookies, truly honoured the spirit of Blessed Edmund Rice and the Christian Brothers.

Thank you to the students who read, altar-served, were Eucharistic ministers, assisted in setting up and sang in the choir. Thank you also to the staff who supported them, especially Ms Adrianna Rimland and Ms Claire Currey who were instrumental in their organisation of the day. Finally thank you to Mr Paul McNamara, assisted by Mr Sel Dennis who built the frame for the window and put it together.

EREBB Exchange with Ignatius Park

The Edmund Rice Education Beyond Borders Exchange is a program that promotes global solidarity and offers transformational educational experiences for justice and liberation. Schools and community groups from around the world partner to extend and enrich our shared story.

This week, as a part of the EREBB program we have hosted two students from Ignatius Park College (IPC), an Edmund Rice school in Townsville. Ethan and Orlando have been staying with and shadowing their host students Connor, Jacob and Harry, experiencing a week in the life at Eddies. We had the opportunity to learn from them about how IPC is different yet similar in many ways to our own Edmund Rice College.




This afternoon, the five boys will travel up to IPC in Townsville. There they will meet staff from IPC and Darcy, who will be hosting Harry. Throughout the weekend and into next week, our students will be taken out of their comfort zone and extended through experiences on Magnetic Island and in school at Ignatius Park College. We look forward to hearing about what they have gained from their time ‘up north’ when they return.



Prayer for the Community from Edmund Rice Mass

Dear Lord
We thank you for the life and example of Edmund Rice.
He opened his heart to Christ and was present to those oppressed by poverty and injustice.
May this window be a symbol to this community of the faith and generosity they have to give.
May we like Edmund have hearts broken open to love others.
Grant us the courage and compassion of Edmund Rice.
Enrich our spirit as we seek to own our abilities to bring light to the world.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen

Senior and Middle School News

Year 11

St Edmund’s College has introduced an exciting Term 2 initiative for Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR)students to support them in this first year of the new Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). It is a trial of Atomi, an online tutorial and feedback product tailored to our QCE senior subjects. Your son has been given a presentation on how to log in to and use this system.
The website: www.atomi.com

In the Atomi website, teachers can assign lessons to students that include videos, examples and quizzes. Students can also work ahead at their own pace.The lessons are written to specifically match Queensland’s senior subjects and at this point in time, Atomi covers the following subjects:
• Physics, Chemistry and Biology
• Legal Studies
• English and Literature
• General Maths and Maths Methods
• Physical Education

We are running this as a trial this term and will decide whether to maintain this subscription based on uptake and engagement. We believe that this product has potential to increase the engagement and learning for ATAR students and look forward to conversations with our teachers and students about the different ways they use this product!

If you have any queries about this product trial, please contact Mr Litchfield via blitchfield@sec.qld.edu.au or 3810 4570.

Mr Litchfield, Director of Senior School

Middle School - Term 2 Week 2

Although many students feel they have just returned from holidays, we are about to enter Week 3 of the term. It is important for all students to start planning their term by creating a weekly routine outlining their time for studying, homework, sporting commitments and other regular events. This week parent-teacher interviews took place. These interviews are a great opportunity for parents and guardians to gauge how your boys are performing thus far and identify possible ways in which we can help them achieve their best. As an outcome from these meetings, I encourage all parents and guardians to have a conversation with your boys and together come up with specific schooling goals for the term. This will give the boys targets to aim for and reflect on at the end of the term.

Year 9 Interviews

Tuesday next week, homeroom teachers will be meeting individually with Year 9 students and discussing their academic performance thus far. Teachers will use data collected over the last three years to help guide the conversations and identify areas of success and possible areas for improvement. Furthermore, teachers will use this opportunity to help set academic goals and provide students with possible strategies to reach those goals.

NAPLAN

This Friday a letter will be sent out with all Years 7 and 9 students with some general information regarding NAPLAN testing. Please make sure your read this letter and ensure your son has the necessary equipment. NAPLAN testing will take place from the 14 to 16 May 2019 (Tuesday to Thursday). If you have any questions or concerns regarding NAPLAN please feel free to contact the College or myself. To participate fully and efficiently in NAPLAN each student should bring the following equipment:

2B or HB pencils – no mechanical pencils
An eraser
A sharpener
A calculator (for the Numeracy – Calculator allowed test)
A blue or black pen (for the Writing Task)

Mr Marin, Director of Middle School

Year 12

Ms Mulkerin has been tracking the Year 12 OP students and has meet with some students regarding their progress. I thank the parents who have had discussions with her over this time.

Parent Teacher Student Interviews

Thank you to the many parents who attended the opportunity to discuss their son’s progress with his teachers. Educational research demonstrates that this partnership between school, parent and student is key to student success and improvement.

Best wishes.

Year 12 Study of Religion Islamic Mosque Visit

SOR Annual Excursion

On Wednesday 1 May, the Year 12 Study of Religion students went on their annual excursion to the Ipswich Islamic Society Mosque and the Brisbane Hebrew Jewish Synagogue. The students listened to adherents of both faiths who assisted the group in gaining a better understanding of the connectedness we all have to God as members of the monotheistic faiths.

The three class teachers who accompanied the Year 12 group: Ms Frances O’Sullivan, Mr Eamon Webb and Ms Anne Artesi noted that the students’ behaviour was impeccable, as was their conduct and the professional way in which they approached the excursion, which forms part of their SoR course of study. The students were wonderful ambassadors for St Edmund’s College and both sites enjoyed having them attend.

The group spent time in the Brisbane Botanic Gardens and the gardens of QUT Gardens Point eating lunch and discussing the day’s speakers and enjoying the sunshine. The students will put the knowledge gained into their assessment this term. Thank you to the staff involved in this excursion.
