A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Big picture

AWARDS EVENING 2018

(below is the Principal's address from the evening)


Good evening and welcome to all the invited guests, the College Board Chair Kevin Peterson, Board members, staff, parents and, most importantly, our students who we are gathered here tonight to celebrate.


In their absence, I would like acknowledge Mr William Woodruff the Founding Principal of Prendiville and his wife Gwen. Bill is unwell and we keep him in our prayers. Bill turns 94 this year and we are grateful for his foundational leadership. Tonight is the first awards evening they have missed.


Welcome also to Mr John Aldous, another former Principal of the College and who continues to be a great support in the background through his role as School Improvement Advisor.


Tonight, is about honouring excellence. At Prendiville we measure excellence in our College beyond our buildings, academic results and first places in competitions. Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador (who was recently canonized as a Saint), reminds us to “judge your success by the quality of your hearts and your efforts to live the call of the Gospel”.


"Excellence is doing your best, giving careful attention to every task and every relationship. Excellence is effort guided by a noble purpose. It is a desire for perfection. When you practice excellence, you bring your gifts to life. Excellence is the key to success.”


For us at Prendiville, excellence is being the very best you can be both in your relationships and all activities you may be affiliated with. It is this culture we wish to permeate our corridors, on the playing fields and in each classroom with every member of the community striving to be their best in all aspects of College life.


I am delighted to acknowledge our major academic award winners this year:


  • Dux – Moritz Bergemann
  • Proxime Accessit – Kristian Rados
  • VET – Lydia Baker (not attending tonight)
Big picture

The chance to honour excellence across all areas of College Academic Life is a privilege. It has been a special few days as last Friday we acknowledged our first graduating FLEXed students. Each of these students graduated with outstanding academic results by following a progressive academic pathway demonstrating that there are many paths to graduation.


Next, I look to the Spirit of Prendiville Awards and the Redmond Prendiville Award. These awards seek to recognise those students who have been exemplary in modelling through action what it is to be Prendivillian.


The term Prendivillian is used to affectionately describe our students. This term must be more than just a word and must be a value and action. We want our students to be more than just their grades. At Prendiville we have defined the key characteristics of a Prendivillian as being people who:


  • Display pride in being a student of our College through Service.
  • Display outstanding integrity, service and dependability through Leadership.
  • Enrich the lives of others, and are a positive influence on our College community through inspiration.


Ideally each Prendivillan seeks personal excellence across the academic, physical, spiritual, cultural, and in fact all aspects of College life. With these characteristics in mind, we will now announce the 2018 Spirit of Prendiville Award winners.


This year, we have 13 students who will be awarded the Spirit of Prendiville award:


  • Alana Celenza
  • Sophia Colbourne
  • Gavin Day
  • Molly Gerrans
  • Grace Moran
  • Jessica Mullen
  • Thomas Norman
  • Taj O’Hayon
  • Thomas O'Donnell
  • Tessa Piovesan
  • Tyrah Spencer
  • Ella-Rae Studman
  • Brooke Tkachenko

Now we turn to the Redmond Prendiville Award.



Now, just to let you know - the final winner is a secret and I do not know the winner's name. I have great pleasure in announcing that our winner of the Redmond Prendiville Award for 2018 is: Tyrah Spencer


Bailey Porro and Amy Groenewegen, last year's Redmond Prendiville Award winners, will present the award and I ask Tyrah to move forward to the front of the stage.

Big picture

Congratulations to each and every award winner tonight. Thank you for sharing a piece of your excellence with us and for challenging us to remember that excellence is within everyone’s reach and doing the best we can with the gifts and ability our God has given us.


God bless.

YEAR 11 RIVER CRUISE

The Year 11 River Cruise was one of the most anticipated events of this year with many of us looking forward to it since day one of Year 7. Of course, the cruise met everybody’s expectations and resulted in a night of laughter, dancing and fun.


That evening we gathered together at Elizabeth Quay in our best attire, preparing for a night of entertainment and fun. We boarded the Crystal Swan at around quarter past six and the huge cube was amazing with two floors. At the top floor, the cube hosted an impressive bar which was constantly topped up with multiple soft drinks, pizzas and desserts. Slightly beneath that, the cube opened to a large dining area sporting multiple tables and chairs where some of us spent the night chatting with friends. The cube was open to the air, and upon standing on the balcony, gave quite a calming and tranquil atmosphere - until the boat started moving, then the wind became difficult to deal with… but the view was gorgeous nonetheless.


Downstairs was a different story all together. The lower floor was home to a surprisingly large dance area which the entire year made use of, spending the majority of the night dancing along to requested tracks. They played everything over the loud speakers, from old hits to High School Musical and it all made for good fun. Downstairs was where everybody had the most fun singing and dancing along to the loud music with all of their friends. Most people sang until they lost their voices and danced until they couldn’t feel their feet. It was certain that everybody had a great time.


By the end of the night we were all super tired yet still happy from the great night that would be the focus of many inside jokes and happy memories. Overall it was an outstanding night and it will be an important memory as well as milestone in our lives. On behalf of the Year 11 cohort we thank Ms Charles for coordinating the River Cruise and all the staff who were a part of making it a great time for everybody.

SCIENCE

YEAR 7 SCIENCE CLUB BUSHWALK

On Tuesday 6 November 30 Year 7 students attended a night bush walk led by Ecologist Mandy Bamford. They moved around Neil Hawkins Park in Joondalup and spotted aquatic and bird wildlife. One group was lucky enough to find a baby motor bike frog. The students enjoyed the evening. Thank you to Mrs Fiona Owen for organising the event and Mr Giannasi, Miss Skelin, Mr D’Amico and Mrs Relo-Fisher for attending the evening.


MISSION DISCOVERY PROGRAM

Year 7 student Baylee Thompson attended the Mission Discovery program in Melbourne last holidays. This is a national event and Baylee was the only Prendiville student to attend in 2018.

Big picture

Her team won the design challenge in the first day and she made friends with the commander of the international space station. She had an absolutely fantastic experience. She is working on a project showcasing her experience which I’m sure she’ll get to you soon. Baylee enjoys Science and we at Prendiville look forward to seeing her project.

Did you know? Uses of probability in life and jobs.

Probability deals with the chance of an event occurring. As such, everything we do has a probability of favourable and unfavourable outcomes. Most often, when we think of probability, we think of the lottery or casino games like roulette, but probability is also in:


  • Everyday decision-making
  • Weather forecasting (and thus decisions based on the weather)
  • Sports
  • Risk assessments and safety
  • Biology – disease risk, spread and emergency response
  • Finance and risk analysis
  • Traffic management
  • Political polling
  • Sales forecasting
  • Predictive typing on phones and iPads
  • Card or board games


The list really is endless….


Jobs that involve probability are closely tied to those for statistics, with probability and statistics often mentioned at the same time. As such, a list of jobs that use probability would include those involved in anything above or those mentioned in the last newsletter.


Try the following logic question:

Find a four-figure number that is exactly four times greater when the digits are reversed.

Riddle:

Riddle 1. What always goes up and never goes down?

Riddle 2. What always goes down and never up?

Solutions from last newsletter: Logic question – Peter is 32 and Paul is 24. When Peter was 24, Paul was 16. Riddle: Fire.

HUMANITIES

Remembrance Day commemorated at Prendiville

LEST WE FORGET

On Monday the Prendiville community took the opportunity to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the end of World War 1. Students Olivia Howell and Sophie Hansen both of Year 9 delivered a heartfelt reflection to the staff. The College as a whole then took part in a minute's silence during PCG which was carried out with the utmost respect. The College Wall of Remembrance pictured below paid tribute to the relatives of the College community who are or were members of the armed forces.


Also, the library hosted a remembrance display which aimed to be a reflective tribute to people who lost their lives. This was a collaborative effort between the Library and the Humanities and Art Departments. A special thank you to Mrs Relo-Fisher, Mr Matthews and the librarians for their support in making this display possible. Also a big thank you to the students who assisted with the preparations for the day your support was invaluable.

Baylee Thompson

Congratulations to Baylee Thompson in Year 7 who recently competed in the WA stage of the UN Youth Voice Australia Competition. Baylee attended a public speaking workshop before presenting a four-minute speech on her chosen topic of diversity in the Australian Parliament. After the speech, Baylee was asked a number of questions by the judges and equipped herself very well in her responses. Well done Baylee, the Humanities Department is proud of you.

OUTDOOR ED

Outdoors October 2018

Again, the Prendiville Outdoor Education Program offered opportunities for not just Outdoor Education students, but other students and staff as well - the opportunities to participate in the OutdoorWA Campaign: 'Outdoors October'. Where, for the month of October - every week throughout Perth/ local communities - there are opportunities to enjoy and participate in the great outdoors!


The ODE Dept offered the following:

  • Snorkelling gear for staff that wanted to try snorkelling at Mettams' Pool and Rottnest Island.
  • Adventure DVD'S/ magazines/ journal articles.
  • MTB's, gear and maps for staff that were riding sections of the Munda Biddi Trail.
  • Backpacks, gear and maps for Staff and their families that were walking sections of the Bibbulmun Track, Cape to Cape and Yanchep National Park.
  • Fire pits were made available at some lunchtimes for students to toast some marshmallows and make some smores.
  • The MTB Track in the Outdoor Ed. Learning Area was made available at a lunchtime so students were able to ride it and learn how to roll over some 'lumps n jumps'
  • The Outdoor Ed Club opened! On Thursday afternoons, students are encouraged to ride their bikes over the tracks that have been designed and developed by outdoor education students.
  • A new MTB Track is currently being designed and developed by the Outdoor Ed club.

Year 8

On Tuesday 30th October, the Year 8 Outdoor Education cohort put their roping knowledge and skills into practice. The year group is the largest the Outdoor Education Program have ever had, with 94 students. Due to the large size, for the first time, the students were divided over two quarries in the Kalamunda; Mountain & Strathams Quarry.


The students have been working hard on their abseil techniques and safety practices throughout Term 3 and for those that were able too, tackled the rock faces with absolute grit, determination but most of all - respect. As students walked into each quarry, the shear awe of the size of their respective quarries was an overwhelming feeling for some, though with the support that every "outdoor ed'er" gave each other, everyone was able to face their fears and achieve their own individual goals. For some, these goals were to abseil as many times as possible, for others, purely walking up to the top was an accomplishment in itself. I am deeply proud of the Year 8's - they were absolutely amazing throughout the day.

Big picture

Year 9

Our Year 9 Outdoor Ed'ers had their first expedition in Collie, 6th- 9th November. Activities included bushwalking over 35kms with weighted backpacks, a day of rock-climbing and abseiling at Wellington Dam Quarry and swims/tyre tubes rides down the Collie River.


The students were absolutely amazing and were faced with many challenges along the way. These ranged from controlled burning from DePaW, snakes saying hello along the tracks, rock- climbing lines, personal hygiene management and learning how to cook cous cous for the first time (some were more successful than others as I believe some members of Pink Panthers went for a more 'crunchy' texture.) To my Year 9 Outdoor Ed'er's, I am extremely proud of how you all embraced the Expedition. Well done on a successful year!


To those that are taking on Year 10 in 2019, hopefully you have learnt some solid skills and are ready for the epic Final Expedition - completing 100kms in 5 days, over two modes of transport!
