Encountering the Crossroads

Dear St Edmund’s College Family and Friends

We’ve all been there haven’t we? Do I continue along the way that I’m going, or do I stop, consider the new possibilities that have come to light, and take a different path than the one I’m currently on? These may be referred to as the ‘crossroad’ moments in our lives and can often be the times, when we look back on our life’s journey, the moments of immense clarity and transformation. In that sense I suggest they are God encounters because they compel us to searchingly look to the beyond, courageously reach into the unknown, recklessly take a leap of faith, instinctively trust our judgments and prayerfully hope amid the uncertainty that we’re making the right decision.

In recent weeks we have been having these ‘crossroad’ conversations with your son. We have asked him to consider whether the path that he is currently on is taking him to the place where he wants to be. It is why we have been asking your son to maintain the high standards that we strive to uphold in how he prepares for his studies and conducts himself in the community.

Parent Information Nights for young men in Years 8, 9, 10 and 11 have centred on making choices, considering future pathways and imagining possibilities. The curriculum changes that will be implemented in 2020 are also about creating new learning opportunities for your son to experience these ‘crossroad’ moments, these encounters with God, that will ultimately define and shape who he is and who he can be. We take this very seriously and I must say that it is a joy and privilege to partner with you in this awesome task that is, after all, the heart and soul of Catholic education in the Edmund Rice tradition.

Year 12 of 2019 Sit The Last QCS Test

After two days sitting four separate test papers including two multiple choices, a short response and a writing task, all designed to elicit skills and knowledge of the Common Curriculum Elements covered in high school, our Year 12 students of 2019 have emerged unscathed, intact and quietly confident. We hope, that they have given it their best. Thus, ends a chapter in the history of Queensland Education – the sitting of the last- ever Queensland Core Skills (QCS) Test. The results of the QCS Test will be used to scale our students against other school results and ultimately determine their Overall Position (OP) later in the year.

There is still work to be done with Term 3 Exams coming up and assessment tasks to be completed in Term 4. I wish our Year 12 students all the best as they endeavour to finish strongly this term and make the most of their time in ensuring they achieve their goals. Thank you to Carmel James who, as Chief Supervisor of the QCS and with the help of our Heads of Department, have worked tirelessly over the past two years to prepare Year 12 for these two days of tests.

Middle Years’ Concert Uncovers Talent

Last night I was among a packed audience for the combined Eddies and St Mary’s Middle Years’ Concert at the our College’s Performing Arts Centre. Joining us on the night for the first time was the Eddies’ Rookies Choir who have been practising this Term. It was another extremely enjoyable and entertaining evening with emerging talent on show. Well done to all the young Eddies’ men, including our Rookies, on their respective performances. We are blessed with exceptional talent coming through the Middle Years boding well for the continuation of a strong Performing Arts culture at the College.

Thank you to Tim Kirkwood for his overall coordination of the evening, Fran O’Sullivan for her leadership and choral directing, Jesse Gold for musical directing and assistance and Hannah Douglas who has assisted in the background. Thank you too to Chris Barton who manages our technical needs in audio visual.

Prayers

We keep in our prayers the Doyle family and the Creedy family who have experienced the loss of a loved one this week. Beryl Doyle’s funeral was held earlier this week and Iris Creedy passed away on Tuesday night. Both families have strong connections to our College. Beryl Doyle was the wife of Marty Doyle, an Old Boy of the College who, in the 80’s, built many of the St Edmund’s buildings. Iris is the mother of Adrian and Hugh Creedy and mother-in-law of Kath Creedy; Adrian and Kath are both current staff members. May Beryl and Iris rest in eternal peace in God’s loving embrace.

Season of Creation 2019

Sunday 1 September was the start of the Season of Creation. During the Season of Creation 2019, every parish, school and agency across the Archdiocese of Brisbane is invited to make a commitment to dive deeper into Pope Francis’ call for us to care for our common home.

According to St Thomas Aquinas and St Bonaventure the diversity of species represents the wonder and beauty of God that transcends any one creature. God’s creatures express and represent the Trinity. They are not simply there for human use, but have their own dignity, value and integrity. Such a view challenges the destruction of species and their habitats in our everyday lives.

In Pope Francis’ 2015 encyclical letter, ‘Laudato Si’ - On Care for our Common Home, the Pope invites us to hear the call to ecological conversion and to take action. There are so many ecological problems in South-East Queensland, in our region and around the world.

Our care is urgently needed! As individuals, parishes, schools and agencies, we need to increase our efforts to better care for creation so that we live out Laudato Si’.

Take a moment to consider the following reflections:

Protecting bio-diversity is an issue of justice.
How does my community promote and support bio-diversity in its local eco-system?
How will I act for the common good of our home during this Season of Creation
?

This reflection may be opportunity for you to consider a personal change or may even prompt an idea you are willing to share with the College. Please contact me if you are able to support our efforts to care for our common home at mrice@sec.qld.edu.au or via Reception 3810 4400.

Spend some time today in a place where you can take in and appreciate the diversity and beauty of God in Creation.

Prayer for Creation

All-powerful God, you are present in the whole universe and in the smallest of your creatures.
You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.
Pour out upon us the power of your love, that we may protect life and beauty.
Fill us with peace, that we may live as brothers and sisters, harming no one.
Teach us to discover the worth of each thing, to be filled with awe and contemplation, to recognise that we are profoundly united with every creature as we journey towards your infinite light.
We thank you for being with us each day.
Encourage us, we pray, in our struggle for justice, love and peace.
Amen

Upcoming Events

Year 12 Queensland Core Skills (QCS)

Congratulations to the Year 12 students for the excellent manner in which they conducted themselves this week during the QCS test. They were prepared well and entered into that process with commitment. On the first day I told them that they should be proud of the manner in which they approached the test and I congratulated them on the level of dedication that they gave to the test. I restated this to the students at the conclusion of the last test.

I thank the support staff and the teaching staff for all they did to provide breakfast and lunch on the two days of the test. Staff were in attendance from 6.30am to set up and cook a hot breakfast for the students and also cooked a hot lunch. It is this whole community support and cooperation that makes our College special.



As the last QCS Test to be conducted in Queensland, this signals the end of an educational era. I sent an email to the Year 12 parents saying what a privilege it was to be on that final journey with their sons. The whole school prayed for the Year 12 students. Now they turn their attention to the Exams which commence today.

The VR Goggle Experience

On Monday this week a group of staff met with a VR Goggle representative to trial the goggles and explore how they can be incorporated as a teaching tool into our College curriculum. The scope for the students’ interaction with them is enormous. To see a heart in three dimensions, then zoom in to see inside the chambers and vessels in the heart should surely capture imagination and assist their learning. Likewise, rotating a brain to see its parts in three dimensions was enthralling. Our Head of Department Digital Technology, Ms Debra Whyte, is leading us on this journey of discovery in how these tools can assist our teaching and the students’ learning. I thank her for organising this showcase.



After-School Library Learning Hub

This week the College welcomed Mr Ben Golding as the new Library Learning Hub Coordinator. The Hub is open for study on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Week 9, from 3.00pm to 5.00pm. Ben is pictured here with SEC Old Boy tutor, Anu Jeevan. As exams commence why not visit the Hub and study with your friends.



Best wishes.

Middle School News - Term 3 – Week 8

Subject Selection

On Wednesday this week we had our first Middle School Subject Selection Evening for the year. It was wonderful to see so many parents and caregivers attend with their sons.

Our students are blessed with a wide range of subjects giving them a taste of the different pathways available to them. As I mentioned on Wednesday evening, it is important that they make their selections based on their interests and strengths to give themselves the best chance possible to achieve good results. In saying that, it is also important that our students extend themselves and try something different.

Subject Selection booklets were available for each student on Wednesday night. If you still require a booklet a digital copy is available on EDE, and hard copies are available from the Heads of Department Reception. If further information is required regarding specific subjects, possible Senior Pathways or the subject selection process in general, please do not hesitate to contact me via College Reception on 3810 4400.

Please remember that Thursday 12 September is the final day to select subjects online, and signed Subject Selection receipts must be returned by Friday 13 September.

God bless.

Library News - Week 10

Holiday Reading - SEC eBooks


Reading is similar to almost everything else in life, the more you do it the better you become. When students stop reading for extended periods of time they often take a few steps backwards in their reading improvement. Therefore, it is important to encourage boys to keep reading during the holidays. The St Edmund’s College Library has e-books and audio-books available for download to enable students to continue borrowing and reading over the holiday break.



To login to the ePlatform, students use their student ID (eg. S12345) and the password is: Library1
If you do not wish to download the app, go to: https://sec.wheelers.co/

Please direct any queries to St Edmund's College Library staff.

Safe Drive Training - Year 12

Introduction

On Wednesday the Year 12 students were introduced to the Safe Drive Training program to be held on Thursday 14 November (Week 6 Term 4).

The course covers a wide range of practical situations to maintain safety related to motor vehicle control and awareness of fellow road users.

The program is a practical day of driver training which is invaluable for all who attend. Numbers are limited to a maximum of 60 participants. All who attend must have the ability to drive a car and possess, at least, a Learner’s Permit. It is not a learn-to-drive course but a course designed to instruct participants in how to control a motor vehicle more effectively.

The College Parents and Friends’ Association has kindly offered to subsidise the cost of the Safe Drive student course. An information brochure and Enrolment Form are available from the Deans’ Room. If students wish to participate they should complete the Enrolment Form and make a payment of $90 to the College Reception as per the information on the Enrolment Form. Enrolments will close Friday 18 October (Week 2 Term 4).

The following links provide a good insight into the Safe Drive Training program, the company providing the training and the course brochure:

Study Skills

Forgetting and retaining

Ebbinghaus was a German psychologist in the 19th Century who studied memory. He discovered the forgetting curve which looks at the decline of memory retention. It showed that forgetting occurs most rapidly shortly after you stop learning a subject. The greatest loss is within a few hours. The speed you forget gradually slows down as time goes on. Visit The Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve – And How To Overcome It for more information about the forgetting curve. Two strategies for memory retention are:

  • Better memory representation (e.g. mnemonic techniques) – Coming up with a song is a commonly used mnemonic technique. An example is how children remember their ABCs. Other types include names, expressions, models, odes, note organisation, images, connections, and spellings. An example of using a name as a mnemonic is Roy G Biv (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) to remember the colours of the rainbow.
  • Repetition based on active recall (especially spaced repetition) – When learning new information, spacing out revision sessions over time makes items easier to remember. It is more effective to do your revision over many weeks, rather than the night before the exam. Plan your review of material to start the first day after it is acquired, a second time about a week after that, and finally a few weeks later. This is what you do in the revision part of homework. Active recall means that you test yourself following each revision session.

Tips for better study skills

No one is born knowing how to study. It takes time and experience to know how to study well. Deakin University has developed a set of study skills that will see you studying smarter not harder and have been developed specifically for high school students. Visit their website for more information and activities and find information to assist you with:

  • Getting started
  • Time management

Middle School Concert

Middle School students were centre-stage last night in the final College Performing Arts event for this term, in the annual Middle School Concert. This was a great opportunity for our younger students in the program to perform in front of an attentive audience, for some their first time performing in front of a crowd. The night finished with a special performance by the Rookies Band/Choir who were accompanied by the Senior Contemporary Ensemble. This was a great way to finish the concert.

I would like to congratulate all the Rookies’ students, Eddies’ juniors, Senior student helpers, tutors and Performing Arts staff who helped make this night a success.

College Assembly Performance

Most College Assembly performances are of a musical nature so it was good to have a Drama performance at last Friday’s Assembly. Jack Winrow and Noah Bertram performed a skit called ‘Dead Parrot’, a very well-known satire from Monty Python. The duo gave a passionate performance that drew many laughs from the audience. Well done Jack and Noah!

Instrumental Lessons

Instrumental lessons finish for the term this week. Students should be aware of any lessons taking place.

AIC Basketball Results - 31 August 2019

Round 5 Vs St Peter’s Lutheran College

First V – Win 58 – 46. Term 3 caught up with the First V who struggled to find their groove in a slow game against a determined St Peter’s team. Max Banditt and Merrick Small found ways to keep the scoreboard ticking over. Tyreece Page-Woodbridge showed promise. Hopefully the team will return re-energised for Saturday’s game.

Second V – Win 50 – 17. A comfortable victory, although we needed to find our energy before truly asserting ourselves. Once we played with intensity, the St Peter’s team were no match. Jack Noonan was smooth as silk, and Daniel Farraway is getting stronger each week following injury earlier in the season.

Third V – Loss 33 – 35. We are closer to our first win. A lack of intensity from the ball up was the difference.

Fourth V – Loss 9 – 23. A tight game in which shots did not go down. The team continues to play positive team basketball, while striving to achieve a win.

11A – Win 44 – 37. An impressive win for the 11As despite losing to St Peter’s by more than 20 points in the pre-season warm-up match. We were a much-improved team on the day and managed to shut down a hot shooting St Peter’s team to secure the victory. There was hot shooting of our own from Thornton Hendry and Kane Sherman. Nicholas Mallet did a great job getting to the basket and setting up the offense.

11B – Loss 13 – 19. Our best team effort for the season saw us take a lead in game time for the first time. The team defended well, however our inability to take opportunities in offence was ultimately the difference in the game.

10A – Win 58 – 36. A good win against a much-improved St Peter’s team. Kylan Rickards, Samuel Smith and Kobie Low played well, scoring in transition and in the half court. Bryon Williams and Tyreece Page-Woodbridge were classy throughout the game.

10B – Win 26 – 21. A tough game for the players however they achieved a win. The opposition took advantage of our flat performance, holding the game score level at each break. The team had a strong fourth term to take the win.

10C – Loss 9 – 18. A strong start for the team, dominating on defence in the first half, limiting their opportunities and making good plays against a well matched opponent. Our wheels began to burn out as we let up in the final minutes of the game and did not execute to our norm. Great performances from Patrick Schmidt, Jass Wood and Ryan O’Halloran on offense, added to exceptional defense from Ekachai Adams and Riley Stoddart.

9A – Win 72 - 27. After a rather sluggish start that saw the score even after 5 minutes, an injection of energy from Nathaniel Grace and Daniel Mavunda kick-started what was a dominant display in the end. Shanden Stokes had his game of the season, unsettling their offence with his quick hands and calm demeanour on fast break finishes. Kai Brown was too big and too long to contain; Fletcher Rahn could not miss a shot and Samuel Caprioli was strong in attacking the lanes.

9B – Win 39 – 6. What a difference a week makes in sport! A dominant performance by our players resulted in a convincing win. Tight defense and good ball use were key aspects to this game. Harry Sammut and Jacob Wright both top-scored with 12 points each. Clancy Reberger was solid with many rebounds, as were Lachlan Kable and Oliver Cruice with their good defense and attack. Everyone contributed well to notch up our second win. Well done, team.

9C – Win 54 – 23. Our best performance to date saw our first win of the season. We played with intensity and effort from start to finish and everyone played their role fantastically. It was a great all-round team performance and there was much communication on-court which is what we have been missing. Oscar Dempsey was a force on offense whilst Travis Lake and Saxon Curr had excellent games.

8A – Win 33 – 15. After a tight, although lucky win in the trial round, we knew we would be matching up against a tough opposition desperate for a win. Our guards laid the platform on defense, pressuring the ball carriers and keeping the ball from entering inside. Tyson Golding, Kai Anderson-Emslie and Thomas Wyton did a great job of guarding the paint and shutting down St Peter’s biggest threat. Harry Noonan and Koen Miller scored the ball efficiently all game. Isaac McCarthy was unstoppable for 40 minutes.

8B – Win 43 – 19. We were down to seven players for the game. Much improved transition with full court man -to-man leaving St Peter’s with no answers. Fast breaks aplenty and our ‘big’ men dominated in the paint with some excellent rebounding. Much better movement of the ball around the key gave better shot choices which continue to improve. Great effort by all players whose reward was a dominant win.

8C – Win 58 – 14. A convincing win from start to finish. The SEC players controlled the game allowing them to trial new defensive structures whilst sharing court time. Direct passing was a highlight of the game along with strong rebounding – an excellent whole team performance.

8D – Win 29 – 25. Ethan McQueen showed good leadership and the team responded well to his drive towards the basket. The team improved this week and won a tough battle. Declan Able displayed determination in bringing the team back to a winning position. All players worked hard on improving their skills with Kyran Saggus scoring a fantastic three when needed.

7A – Win 68 – 24. The 7A team played St Peter’s at home achieving a convincing 68 to 24 win. Once again, the win was based on pressure defense and the ability to quickly transition the ball. Julian Cruice and Broddick Buttenshaw-Holmes led the way with their defensive pressure and Robert Brown gathered some telling rebounds. Ethan Battensby led all scorers with a game-high 27 points and was ably assisted by Joshua Affleck with 18 points. Another strong performance from the team.

7B – Win 62 – 13. The players came out of the gate aggressively and ready to play. Fast break points and steals helped the team run out to an early 20-point lead. All team members played their part, running as a unit.

7C – Win 42 – 11. A slow start with missed opportunities challenged the team’s patience and teamwork. After that we improved our shooting with Maclay Vince and Dylan Casey causing trouble for the opposition. A well-rounded team effort.

7D – Win 34 – 33. The team fought hard in a tough game against an evenly matched opponent. Neck-and-neck all the way, we rallied to take a 1-point lead in the final minutes to close out the game. Great performances by Aksel Klok, Rhys Cash, and Cub Cup ball-stars Angus Davis and Lucas O’Connell.

AIC Tennis Results - 31 August 2019

Round 5 Vs St Peter’s Lutheran College

First IV – Loss 0 – 8. The SEC First Tennis team had a loss 8-0 to St Peter’s Lutheran College. Jeremy Suthers and Sebastian Howie moved into the Firsts this week to face our toughest opponents. Each player competed at the highest level. The team is looking forward to better outcomes in the coming weeks.


Second IV – Loss 1 – 7. The SEC Second team had a loss 7-1 against St Peter’s Lutheran College. Connor Cash and Nathan Smith moved into the Seconds this week and won their doubles in a highly competitive match. All players worked hard under difficult conditions.

Third IV – Loss 1 – 7. The SEC Third team lost 7-1 against St Peter’s Lutheran College. Year 10 student Ethan Phillips moved into the Thirds this week. He was paired with Nicholas Just in doubles and together they won one doubles match and narrowly lost their reverse doubles match in a tie-break. We look forward to more from this pair in the future.

10A – Loss 0 – 8. All players displayed an improved effort with many games going to deuce; however, they were unsuccessful in most matches. In the A team, Daniel Fordham and Kai Baker took many games to deuce and were unlucky not to win more games.

10B – Loss 1 – 7. Another gallant effort by the Year 10 players against a very strong opposition. In the Bs Shaun Costello and Samuel Callaghan played very well for a great victory in the reverse doubles.

9A – Loss 0 – 8. Adam Hammant and Connor Sampson lost their single matches 6 games to 3. This is a very good result against the potential 2019 Champions.

9B – Loss 0 – 8. The team did their best; however, it was not good enough for a win on the day. Luke McFarlane and Riley Mills both played well.

8A – Loss 2 – 6. A tough morning of tennis against St Peter’s. Our players did well to come away with a win in two sets and proved to be quite good competition for a strong opposition. Special mention again to Clay Baker, who had a nail-biting match, eventually securing a 7-6 win in a tie break. Well done Clay and 8As.

8B – Loss 0 – 8. Tough games of tennis against a strong St Peter’s team. Our players did their best; however, we struggled to keep up with the competition. We did very well to remain positive, build resilience and work toward individual goals on the day.

7A – Loss 0 – 8. Tennis was the winner this week. The loss does not reflect the quality of shots produced by players or the reduction in our unforced errors. We did not have the opportunity to take the advantage due to the strength of the Peter’s team; however, we remained confident.

7B – Loss 0 – 8. There were some beautiful net shots, with the players moving confidently to the net. We need to continue working on our team morale and building on-court relationships. The final sets of doubles were much stronger with partnerships bringing their best tennis to the court, playing as teams on the same court rather than individuals.
