Dear St Edmund’s College Family and Friends,

Last chance to let us know – EREA Parent Choice Survey

Thank you to the families who have already responded to the Edmund Rice Edmund Australia (EREA) Parent Choice Survey. So far our response rate is just under 20% of our entire parent body. I urge all parents and caregivers to complete the survey. It will provide important information to Colleges like ours and EREA on why parents choose EREA schools. The survey takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete and all information shared is unidentified, although each school can see their own summary data. Questions in the survey will help EREA and each school to know vital information about parent choices and their level of satisfaction including:

- Parents’ relationship with the College
- The religious background of parents
- Reasons why parents have chosen St Edmund’s College
- A general measure of student wellbeing at the College
- Parents’ overall satisfaction with the College

To complete the survey just click on the link below.
https://www.research.net/r/ERE...

The survey will remain open until Monday June 18. I am hopeful that we can have a response rate of close to 50%, which will ensure that our summary data accurately reflects the views and beliefs of our families. Your feedback is very much appreciated.

Congratulations Riley Tear – Gold Medal

Well done to Riley Tear who travelled to the Sydney International Convention Centre this week to represent St Edmund’s College and the state of Queensland against the best of the other states in the World Skills National Competition. Riley was entered into the Automotive (school age (non-apprentice) section. He won Gold and was clear by eight points from second place (NSW), which is an outstanding achievement in a top level competition such as this. Mr Nigel Raddie, who accompanied Riley, said that all judges and convenors who were in contact with Riley could not speak highly enough of his attitude and demeanour. Riley was over the moon with his Gold Medal and it was well deserved.

Cyber Safety – Guest Speaker Susan McLean - Monday 16 July 2018

St Edmund’s College and St Mary’s College are proud to jointly host Susan McLean on July 16 for a special parent information evening presentation on Cyber Safety to be held at St Edmund’s College.

Susan McLean is Australia’s foremost expert in the area of Cyber Safety and was a member of Victoria Police for 27 years. Widely known as the ‘cyber cop’ she was the first Victorian Police Officer appointed to a position involving cyber safety and young people.

With the explosion of cyber technology, the issues of cyberbullying and ‘sexting’, are emerging as a significant issue confronting the safety and wellbeing of young people and the wider community. Together with associated technology including 4G mobile telephones, Instant Messaging (MSN), online games and the popularity of social networking sites such as Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter, just to name a few, today’s youth have access to and are accessible by many millions of people worldwide.

Providing guidance and support for our young people to interact with and utilise social media responsibly, legally and ethically is more necessary now than ever before.

For more information about Susan McLean, click on the link below to the Cyber Solutions website:
http://www.cybersafetysolution...

Susan will be with us for two days to speak to students, staff and parents. Her presentations cover the broad range of issues and concerns relating to all aspects of cyber safety.

The parent session will be a limited seating event to be held at St Edmund’s College on Monday July 16. Tickets for the event are free; however bookings are limited to two tickets per registration. You can order your tickets by going onto the website or Facebook pages of either St Edmund’s or St Mary’s College. More information is attached to this newsletter.

We look forward to seeing you there for this important parent information night.

Prayers

We keep in our prayers our brothers and sisters in the communities of Guatemala and Hawaii who are fleeing their homes in panic due to continued volcanic eruptions.

World Environment Day call to action

#BeatPlasticPollution

The theme and hashtag for World Environment Day is a call to action. It is an opportunity for all of us to come together to combat one of the greatest environmental challenges of our time. While plastic has many valuable uses, most single-use plastics are used for an average of 15 minutes before being thrown away. These products then take 400 to 1000 years to break down.

In response to the World Environment Day call to action #BeatPlasticPollution, the St Edmund’s College community has implemented three actions:
1. Reduce our air-conditioner use
2. Bring water bottles to school and reduce our plastic waste
3. A school-wide push to recycle plastic bottles and paper

There are so many little steps that each of us can take, to be part of a global response. Pope Francis reminded us in the encyclical ‘Laudato si’: on care for our common home that it is our responsibility to safe guard our future as we are all interconnected. “We are not faced with two separate crises, one environmental and the other social, but rather one complex crisis which is both social and environmental.” The actions that we take to restore health to our environment can also have a positive impact on combating poverty, restoring dignity to the underprivileged and at the same time protecting nature.

So we are asking that the young men of Eddies, take a moment to think about what they can do to make a positive change. The Uniform Shop has College water bottles available for $5; maybe you can get one and commit to not buying water at school. Better still, bring a water bottle that you have in the cupboard at home and don't buy a new one. Ask your friends and family what positive actions they can take - commit to not buying a hot drink unless you have a reusable cup; ask to not have a straw in your drink; take your canvas bags to the shops. Remember when it comes to plastics - if you can’t reuse it… Refuse it!

World Environment Day Clean-Up, Ipswich River Heart Parklands

A Prayer for Action

Lord, we care about the beauty of this earth. We treasure the gift of your creation. Give us the mindfulness to show our gratitude for nature. Let us be more concerned with what we need and less concerned with what we want. Give us the self-discipline not to be wasteful with food, clothing and all material possessions. Let us be mindful of our waste so that we will find the patience and time to recycle and avoid, in our own small way, polluting the beautiful world you have given us. Amen.

NAIDOC Week - 8 to 15 July 2018

As we move towards NAIDOC Week which falls during the holidays, 8 to 15 July, St Edmund’s College acknowledges and pays 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 Eddies’ 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.

Live, Jesus, in our hearts, forever

Let's Go Fishin'! - Can you help?

A St Eddies After-School Service Learning Project

Let’s go Fishin’!

Our St Eddies After-School Service Learning group visits Leichhardt Primary School as part of the College’s Service Learning Program. The group is planning an activity that involves repairing and restoring old fishing rods, reels and tackle. The ultimate goal is to re-cycle, re-make and/or repair what will become our own gear…..then ‘go fishing’.

Do you have any fishing gear that is no longer loved or needed, old and/or broken fishing rods, gear and tackle just sitting around at home? The St Eddies After-School Learning group will happily take it off your hands.

Any donations could be left with Mr Hudson at St Edmund’s College. Thank you.

Year 11 Mentoring Information Evening

Professional Development Conference

This week staff have been given the opportunity to book for workshops for the St Edmund’s College Staff Professional Development Conference, “Making Connections - Teaching and Learning”. Keynote speakers include Dr Tony Ryan – Educational Futurist and Angela White from “Adolescent Success”: an organisation which focuses on the needs of the adolescent learner. The introduction from our Principal, Diarmuid O’Riordan, appears below:

“The opportunity to learn new skills, expand our knowledge and deepen our understanding is fundamental to the work we do in Catholic education. When our own colleagues are able to be the architects and facilitators of the professional development and formation being offered, then the learning experience is far more powerful and compelling.

This is what makes our week together, from Monday June 25 to Thursday June 29, very special indeed. We know from research that rich learning happens experientially and relationally. That is why our Professional Development week has a strong home-grown flavour, with input from outside experts that we hope will stretch and challenge us to face the changing educational landscape with confidence and creativity.

I hope that this inaugural mid-year St Edmund’s College Staff Conference aptly entitled “Making Connections: Teaching and Learning” fulfils your expectations and delivers in a way that inspires you to strive to be the best that you can be in meeting the educational needs of the young Eddies’ men in our care.

Thank you to the Conference Planning Committee for their amazing work putting this program together.”

Year 11 Mentoring

This week the College hosted the Year 11 Mentoring Information Evening. Students gathered with their mentors to learn about the project that the boys must prepare over the next three months. Mentoring is an important part of growing people. I am including a slide from the PowerPoint for the evening explaining the role of a mentor:

- Trusted adviser

- Teacher

- Wise person

- Friend

- Socrates mentored Plato

- Hayden mentored Beethoven

- Mentoring is a fundamental form of human development where one person invests time, energy and personal know-how in assisting the growth and ability of another person

We look forward to the students’ Mentoring presentations in August.

Best wishes.

Myths around Vocational Education and Training (VET)

Many of the perceptions people have of VET are not based on fact. The Skilling Australia Foundation found that the following myths are commonly held by people.

Myth: VET graduates earn considerably lower wages than university graduates.

Fact: The median full-time income for a VET graduate is $55,000. The median graduate salary for students completing a Bachelor’s degree is $60,000.

Myth: VET graduates struggle to find work

Fact: The proportion of bachelor degree graduates in full-time employment is currently at 71.8%. Comparatively, 77.7% of VET graduates are employed after training and 81.2% of graduates who participated in VET as a part of an apprenticeship or traineeship are employed after training. The graduate employment rate of VET students who train as part of a trade apprenticeship is as high as 92%.

Debating Semi-Final - 4 June 2018

St Edmund's 12A Team Vs Ipswich Girls' Grammar School

St Edmund's 12A Loss to Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School

The 12A team lost narrowly to IGGS in a semi-final contest held on Monday night at Ipswich Girls' Grammar. The team argued the negative of the topic “That commercial surrogacy in Australia should be legalised”. Dominic Boyle opened our case strongly arguing about the moral issues raised by such a commercial practice. It was the commercial nature of this type of surrogacy that was the real issue and Dominic exposed some of the pitfalls of such a practice. Second speaker Tasman Pearl was very effective in his linking of the topic to the possible exploitation of poor women bearing children for the rich. Altruistic surrogacy coming from a place of love is one thing, however once payment becomes involved, a whole other set of issues come to the surface. Luke Franz gave his usual passionate rebuttal of the opposition’s case with flair, trying to dismantle the thrust of their argument, that commercial surrogacy is simply a matter of choice for couples and women in particular. IGGS proved to be a little more persuasive on the night and we wish them well in the grand final. Jordan Anderson-Emslie was very good as time-keeper. Thanks to the parents who supported us through the season. We look forward to your continued support next year.

AIC Football (Soccer) Results - 2 June 2018

Round 6 Vs Marist College, Ashgrove

AIC FOOTBALL Vs Marist College, Round 6, 2 June 2018

1sts – Win 3 – 0 A frantic start slowed to a moderate pace which settled the line-up and we began to take control with some effective movement and quick passing across the pitch. We created inroads to trouble the opposition defence, predominantly through Benjamin Thomas, Marco Rose and William Rashleigh. The first goal of the game was crafted via a well-constructed set piece and finished on the rebound by Captain, Dylan Vit. After the break, we continued greater dominance with the ball and with the constant pressure, combined with the introduction of fresh substitutes Aiden Perry and Hayden Whyte, led to the team finishing two excellent team goals to take the three points. Outstanding patient passing sequences were rewarded with a fitting final home victory for the squad, particularly dedicated to the Year twelve students of the team, clinching a one hundred percent Tivoli record for season 2018.
2nds – Loss 1 – 3 A great start and finish to the game by Jordan Dwyer who put us in the lead, however we conceded before half time and then it was downhill. Bailey Scaroni played a good shift as well as Baron Kanku and Nicholas Rumpf.
3rds – Loss 1 - 11
4ths – Loss 0 - 3 It has been a frustrating season for the Fourths. Many games could have turned into wins, with this week being no exception. All the players put in a huge effort to enable our best team performance of the season. Riley Steinhardt had a brilliant game in goals, pulling off a string of fine saves.
5ths – Win 3 - 0 Goals scored by Alex Bragg, Christiaan Rijkaart and Lachlan Wesener secured a good victory in a competitive game.
10A – Loss 0 - 9 A disappointing team performance. Declan Jolly was our best player.
10B – Loss 0 - 1 A hard fought game which could have gone either way. A brief lapse in concentration cost us a vital goal. Jack Jamieson played hard and won consistent possession and Luke Gannaway controlled the back.
9A – Win 3 - 1 A fantastic performance from the team resulted in a well-deserved win. Harry Kelleher and Connor Kennedy scored classy goals.
9B – Loss 1 - 2 A hard and solid game with good ball movement and tough defending making us appear the dominant team, with a late goal costing the game. A great overall match by the team.
8A – Loss 0 – 4 A slow start cost us dearly, with the team down 0 – 3 before ten minutes had passed. We rallied and created a few chances, however it was not enough to shift the momentum in the game where we were unsettled from the outset. The second half was an improvement, with Dylan King, Austen Hurry, Phoenix Fordham and Zachary Ball working tirelessly until the final whistle.
8B – Loss 1 – 2 Our best effort all season. A well appointed goal from at least 30 ymetres from Kane Parsons was the highlight in a game where the players battled and worked extremely hard. Adam Hammant made several key interventions in defence, whilst Andrew Bremner had a strong game.
8C – Loss 0 – 6 The team came out fighting however could not capitalise on early opportunities, narrowly missing on several occasions. Despite this initial period of dominance, we found ourselves down 0 - 1 at half time. The Marist team came out fighting in the second half and overwhelmed with some deft passing and excellent finishing. Aidan Williams and Brandon Deschamp had great games.
7A – Win 2 – 0 The first half was a tight affair and it was not until late in the first half when goal scorer, Xavier Wighton finished well to put us ahead. The second half was a similar story: a hard-fought battle with few chances for both teams. We ran out winners with a late second goal, and all players should be extremely proud of their efforts.
7B – Loss 1 – 2 We were looking bright at the start, however conceding two goals cost us dearly in a game where we can look back and wonder what might have been. Strong games from Jovany Jirima and Ethan Suthers.
7C – Loss 1 – 4 With the game locked at 1-1 for most of the game, the team fought hard for the lead however were unsuccessful. In the dying moments, key defensive errors and loss of focus saw a draw slip from our reach. Standout performances from Matthew Lansdowne and Riley Selfe.
7D – Loss 0 - 5 Early defensive errors led to a deficit, making it hard to get back into the game. A good effort from the team to try to turn the scoreline, however in the end, was unsuccessful. Great games from Tyler Lincoln, Jarred Valiente and Thomas Bryant.

AIC Rugby Results - 2 June 2018

Round 6 Vs Marist College, Ashgrove

AIC RUGBY Vs Marist College, Round 6, 2 June 2018

1sts – Loss 12 – 102 A spirited effort from the Eddie’s team who fought to the final whistle. Defensive errors allowed Marist latitude to attack and they took these opportunities. When the SEC team gained ball control they displayed patience, making good territorial advances. Khalil Warren continued his good form and was able to cross the line for his third try of the season. Rory Dillon, as late replacement, acquitted himself well and crossed for a try from some creative play. Nathan Martin was successful with one conversion. The team is looking forward to finishing the season with a robust performance.
2nds – Loss 0 – 74 Sam Kross and Lachlan Stacey played well.
10A – Loss 0 – 46 Marist played hard however we earned their respect. Bryden Redding debuted well in the forwards and Harrison Midgley contributed with some hard tackling.
10B – Loss 7 – 26 The team fought hard in a competitive game, with no easy points won by either side through tight breakdowns and close play. Lucas Golding tackled hard, Thomas Chandler was technical in the breakdown and Jett Young controlled the defence.
9A – Loss 0 – 29 The most determined performance of the season. Good game by Bailey Lyon and Caeden Hockings.
9B – Loss 5 – 17 Fantastic effort this week with brilliant defence. Lachlan Keats and Keegan Camplin led exceptionally. Flynn Hockings continued his try-scoring form. An excellent team effort.
8A – Loss 5 – 31 After a strong start the players were not able to capitalise and turn this effort into points. Simple errors and lapses in concentration allowed Marist across the line in the first half. The second half had key players down, however the team persevered being rewarded with a try two minutes from full time. Strong performances from Samuel Pawluczyk, Tyler-Cuthbert Hough and Larry Siala.
8B – Loss 0 – 66 The team came up against a disciplined and skilled opponent. We found value in the call of the Coach, applying aggression and body height at the breakdown, as without these disciplines it was difficult to retain and advance the ball. Special mention to Blade Gourley, Kymani Onosi and Blayke Saggus.
8C – Loss 5 – 50 Great heart and spirit was shown by the team against a very tough opposition. Great games by Terence Abaijah-Griffin and Tobias Oxenham.
7A – Loss 12 – 19 From the opening whistle it was clear that both teams were here to win. We played smart in the forwards, working the ball down the field, leading to a well-structured try to Oskar Capp. Marist hit back early after a loose ball, taking the lead 7-5 at half time. We started the first half well, however simple one-on-one missed tackles led to two quick Marist tries. Tafito Ah Ki scored an early brilliant try, however in the end we floundered. The team should be proud of their great effort in a very physical game. Jack Chandler, Bailey Ward, Ben Puller and Phoenix Clarke had strong games.
7B – Loss 0 - 30 The team had a slow start, conceding several early tries. A lift in the second half saw strong team defence and several scoring opportunities. Stand out performances from Flynn Helland and Jack Cairns.
7C – Loss 0 – 89 The team faced a well drilled Marist side. The players learnt the importance of low tackling, and working as a team to stop the ball. Jack Dunne had a strong game.

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.

Our sincere thanks to the following generous sponsors of the 2018 Skool2Skoolies.
