A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Big picture

PRENDIVILE DAY

Prendiville Day was celebrated on the last day of Term 1. It was a wonderful day of celebration and participation by our students. The day started with our ANZAC ceremony and a short liturgy. Following the liturgy the new House mascots were revealed. The new mascots are a result of a collaboration between our student leaders and expert cartoonist, Mr Michael Nicholas, who has created the most amazing mascots inspired by our students. The new mascots are below:

Music Camp

It was a musical start to the term with our Performing Arts staff facilitating the annual Music Camp at New Norcia. The camp provides a wonderful opportunity for our students to participate in specialist workshops. Thank you to Mr Andrew Hislop and the Performing Arts team for providing this opportunity to our students.

Europe Tour


Over the holidays Mr Pereira, Mr Todd and Mrs Wolfe accompanied our students to Europe for the Humanities Study Tour. A special part of the tour was the opportunity provided for our students to be at Villers-Bretonneux on the 25th April to share in the centenary service. This was indeed a special moment for our students and will be remembered forever.

COLLEGE CAMPUS IDENTITY PROJECT

Over the holidays our College Identity Project continued. Our College buildings, spaces and walkways now have their own particular identity and name. During Term 2 we will add special plaques with the name descriptions on them. The names chosen for our buildings and spaces reflect our College history, our Catholic identity and also provide inspiration for an exciting and optimistic future for our students. Over time our students and community will become familiar with the new names and meanings. In the next newsletter we will include a full summary and description of all the names chosen.

Big picture

All classrooms now have new identifications that link them to the building name they are associated with. New signage for the Performing Arts Centre and Redmond Theatre were also installed and some further themed frosting was installed at the southern end of the MAGIS English Centre.


The Pit is the Pit no more with creative plinths now brandishing the name Majaree Place. As well as the magnificent plinths, a beautiful rustic jarrah and glass cross sits subtly in the native garden area.

Big picture

Thank you to Mr Leo Martinez and Mrs Lynn Vroombrout who have prepared the plinths to hold the name plates for our Manjaree. Thank you especially to Mr Leo Martinez who is so generous with his time and contributions to our community. We are blessed that Leo shares his creative talent so freely with our community. A special ceremony will be held later in the term to formerly recognise this beautiful sacred space that has been transformed over the years by James Gault's care with the gardens in the area. Leo is also in the process of designing some beautiful seating furniture that will compliment the area. This is a restful and now sacred reflective space and we want to continue to make it accessible and usable by all.


GATEWAY CENTRE

The GATEWAY Centre was transformed more over the holidays with the installation of new monitors and VIVI interactive software. This will help make GATEWAY an even better space for presentations and collaboration.

Big picture

NEW BUS

The College has purchased a brand new 28 seater bus to add to our transport fleet. The new bus has all the latest safety improvements and seat-belts and will be a welcome addition to support the movement of students to special events and activities. The bus is funded by our parents through our Parents and Friends bus fund.

COLLEGE LEADERSHIP TEAM TERM 2

The following changes will be made to our College Leadership Team for Term 2.

Mrs Antonette Fazzari role has been elevated to that of Deputy Principal level for Term 2. This role, Deputy Principal (Pastoral Welfare), will be expanded to oversee the leadership of College Pastoral Programs from Years 7 to 11. This role includes leadership of the College's Pastoral Policies.


Mr Simon Kanakis will now transition to the full role of Vice Principal with the key portfolios of Staff, Innovation and Improvement. Mr Kanakis will work closely with all members of the College leadership team to provide them support in their roles.


Mrs Karen Rice will return to work part time this term. Mrs Rice and Mrs Margaret Tavelli will share the duties associated with the Director of Mission and Identity role for Term 2.


Mrs Dianne Doick will take on the role of Acting Business Manager while Mr Terry Raphael is on long service leave this term.


NEW STAFF

We welcome Ms Jaime Parora to our staff. Ms Parora joins our newly forming Performing Arts Team. She will teach Drama taking Mrs Rebecca Rodwell’s place whilst she takes 12 months family leave.


Mrs Linda Pozzi is a new addition to our Administration staff and will be another welcoming member of our front office team. Mrs Pozzi will support Mrs Marie Graystone and Mrs Grace Cassidy for three days per week.


RETURNING STAFF

Welcome back Mr Stephen O'Connor and Mr Stephen Webber who return from leave.


A BIG THANK YOU - NEW BUS BAY RULES

Thank you to all parents for respecting the new rules with the bus bay area at pick up times. We are monitoring the traffic flow carefully everyday including drone video footage of traffic flow over the whole campus from 3.15 to 4.00pm.


The bus bay transfers are noticeably safer and less chaotic. Another observation has been the decrease in the build-up of traffic on Prendiville Avenue back to Marmion Avenue.


Over the next fortnight we will be looking at student parking and will be coming up with solutions to handle the increased demand of car parks due to the increase in students who have driving licences and now drive to school. We will keep the community informed of our progress with this project.


MY FOCUS AREAS TERM 2

At the start of each term I share with staff my key high level focus areas for the term. For Term 2 2018 these include:


Completion of the Campus Identity Project. This includes signage, naming and the placement of description plaques on each building.


First stage concept planning of possibilities for the Keller Tech HUB (formerly T BLOCK). The Board has given approval to investigate possibilities and costings which will be presented at the end of Term 2. The progression of this development is dependent on funding and the CDP approval.


Consideration of a reviewed pastoral structure for implementation in 2019.


Beginning the 2019 - 2021 College Strategic Planning Process consult period. Our current plan "Beyond 30" will conclude at the end of Term 3 2018. Beyond Thirty has provided us with territory and space we have worked in over the past four years.


Piloting the new CEWA Climate surveys with staff, students and parents. This data will be used to guide the strategic plan.


Further exploration of alternative and innovative education programs and course delivery at PCC.


Implementation of the three new working Board Advisory Committees of Mission, Risk and Marketing. These committees will help advise our future planning in this area.

Roll out of the CEWA Code of Conduct Policy to our parent body.


I wish everyone an enjoyable and productive term.


For your children


Mark Antulov

CECWA STRATEGIC DIRECTIONS

The Catholic Education Commission of Western Australia (CECWA) has a strategic purpose to ensure that Catholic education is delivered and managed through the system of Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA) in a responsible and effective manner, working within the Catholic Mission, appropriate standards and regulations.


The CECWA has commenced the process of developing the strategic direction for Catholic education in Western Australia from 2019 to 2021. This fundamental work will enable the CECWA to consolidate and communicate our key objectives for coming years. The first phase of this consultation involves gathering feedback from our Catholic education community that will inform the draft Strategic Directions 2019 - 2021.


We would like to invite you to complete a survey to provide your valued input. Visit https://connect.cewa.edu.au to complete the survey, open for participation until Friday, 11 May. There are hard copies available at Reception should you wish to complete one.


The CECWA is eager to listen to our community through this important process and I thank you in anticipation for your participation in helping to shape the future direction of Catholic education throughout Western Australia.

OPEN DAY

Wednesday June 6th (Yes, D Day) this term is a very important day in our College calendar. While every day is open day here at Prendiville, our official biennial Open Day provides a special opportunity for students and family to visit our campus.


Year 4 and 5 students from St Simon Peter, Francis Jordan and Whitfords Catholic Primary will visit Prendiville over the duration of the day to get a sense of what life at Prendiville is like. There will be displays (practical and static), open lessons, productions and performances happening throughout the day. Families not attached to these schools can book a tour for 9am, 10am, 12 noon, 2pm or 4pm.


Please encourage families you know who have shown an interest in Prendiville to make an appointment for a tour. Phone Marie or Grace at the front desk on 9307 2000 to book a tour time or for further information, call Chris Greenwood on 9301 6249 or Stephanie Davies on 9301 6250 to discuss any matters of an Open Day nature.

Community Engagement

AFTER SCHOOL PARKING

Please be respectful of our neighbours when collecting your children after school and refrain from parking in car bays belonging to local businesses. The College has been made aware of several Prendiville parents who are repeatedly parking in bays specifically allocated to businesses such as the physiotherapist and medical centre which leaves nowhere for their patients to park, some of whom are unwell or incapacitated. Please be courteous at all times.

HEALTH CENTRE

Meningococcal ACWY Vaccination Programme

The Meningococcal Immunisation for Year 10 consented students will occur on Thursday 24 May upstairs in the Prendiville Centre. Students are required to wear their Phys Ed uniform for the day. Students will be split up into the following groups and times based on the first initial of their last name. Please ensure that you arrive at your designated time.


Group 1: Females ‘B-H’ 11.20am-11.40am

Group 2: Females ‘I-V’ 11.40am- 12.00pm

Group 3: Males ‘A-M’ 12.00pm-12.20pm

Group 4: Males ‘O-W’ 12.20pm- 12.40pm


What is the Meningococcal ACWY Vaccination Programme?

This vaccination programme is a response to a recent increase of meningococcal infection caused by a particular type of the bacteria ‘serogroup W’. Individuals aged between 15 and 19 years within WA will be targeted to receive this vaccine in order to reduce the spread of this disease.


Why is the program targeting 15- to 19-year-olds?

This age group experiences some of the highest rates of meningococcal carriage and illness. Once infected, they can transmit the bacteria to people who are at increased risk of infection, including young children. It is expected that providing the meningococcal W (Men W) vaccine to this age group will reduce the spread of this potentially life-threatening infection within the WA community.


Why is this targeted vaccination programme necessary?

Although numbers are low, Men W cases have been increasing each year since 2013 with one case notified in that year and 14 cases in 2016. Two more cases have been notified in 2017. Prior to 2013, serogroup W was uncommon with only six cases diagnosed in the 13-year period from 2000 to 2012.


Which vaccine will be used?

The meningococcal ACWY vaccine will be used. This vaccine protects against four groups of meningococcal bacteria: A, C, W and Y. The conjugate meningococcal ACWY vaccine Nimenrix®, supplied in Australia by Pfizer, will be used in this programme.

Cross Country training continues this term and is held at the College on Wednesday and Friday mornings from 7am - 8am. All students are invited to train as students are able to work at an intensity suitable for them. It has been great to see a large number of students training hard for the ACC Cross Country carnival which will take place on Thursday 31st May. We are looking forward to taking a strong and enthusiastic team to the second ACC major carnival of the year.

EUROPE TOUR

On the evening of Prendiville Day, 21 students and 3 staff set off on the inaugural Europe Tour.


Starting in Berlin, we were fortunate enough to visit the TV Tower, Checkpoint Charlie, a host of museums and the East Side gallery where the remnants of the Berlin Wall stand. We paid our respects to the victims of the Holocaust at a concentration camp and walked from one side of Berlin to the other on a long walking tour with our guide.


A train ride to Amsterdam allowed us to visit the Anne Frank Museum, and the Riksmuseum to view some of the most famous paintings in the world. A bicycle tour of the city had us enjoying the famous canals and seeing the sights of the city like a local. Spending the next day in the Hague, we visited the International Court of Justice and a medieval museum before relaxing a park that afternoon while a herd of deer played nearby.


Setting off for the normally quiet city of Bruges, we arrived to find the local soccer team had won their divisional title and a huge party was taking place in the middle of the city. Among the beautiful scenery and amazing chocolate, we were fortunate to see the city filled with celebration.


The Western Front came next with visits to Flanders Fields, Hill 60, Caterpillar Crater, Polygon Wood, Passchendaele, Poperinges, Lijssenthoek and Ypres. We were fortunate to witness the Last Post ceremony performed at Menin Gate, a practice which was happened every night since 2 July 1928 (except during the German occupation, where it was resumed the very day that the town was liberated).


One of the most memorable experiences would be the ANZAC Day Dawn Service in Villers-Brettoneux. Not only was it the final year of the centenary commemorations, it was also the 100 year anniversary, to the day, of the battle itself where ANZAC forces played an integral part in the defence and liberation of the town. The ceremony, a moving tribute which recognised the sacrifices of all those who served in armed forces throughout the last 100 years, stands out as an event which will stay with us all for many years to come.


The tour finished in Paris with a tour of the Palace of Versailles, a cruise along the Seine, wandering through the Louvre and along the Champs Elysees, climbing the Eiffel Tower, wandering through the streets of the city and seeing Mickey and friends at EuroDisney.

16 days, 4 countries, 184km walked and 253,655 steps later, we arrived home with a long list of memories and an experience we won't soon forget.


A sincere thank you goes to the students for making it such an easy to manage trip and to the staff for their work over the last 18 months to make this trip a reality.


This years' Europe Tour was amazing! I loved every part of it! I learnt so much from the guided tours, teachers, and museums. My favourite part was probably the trip to the Louvre in Paris, as I was blown away by all the different types of art work that were made centuries ago. I also loved going to the war museums and batlefields, as most of them really gave me an insight to what the conditions would have been like and what life was like for the soldiers in WW1. The tour was a good opportunity to travel the world, learn about another country's history, make friends and visit some breathtaking sites. Definitely recommend going!

- Kaelena Smith


Europe was truly amazing! We all got along so well and made so many incredible memories together. After visiting Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, Anne Frank's House and attending the ANZAC Dawn Service at Villers-Bretonneux, I was better able to understand the adversity that was faced during times of war. These experiences have changed my perception on the world around me.

- Ciara Nelson


Europe Tour was awesome! We were able to see things that for most of us were one in a lifetime opportunities, like the ANZAC Dawn Service at Villers-Bretonneux. I got to become friends with everyone on tour (including the teachers) and make great memories that we will all remember.

- Bailey Cheshire


The comradery made the trip. Cities such as Berlin and Bruges were rich in history and sharing the experiences in solidarity enhanced the overall education aspect and lent it itself to the success of the tour. Visiting iconic sites such as the Eiffel Tower, Brandenburg Gate and the Berlin Wall were great ideas to help ground the familiar associations with the countries visited, while still making way for the 'smaller' facets of Europe to be explored in between.

- Tom Pastor


The Europe tour was an amazing experience with amazing people, it gave me the opportunity to learn about different cultures. It was especially good for learning about European history and how it connects to Australian history. I got to experience once in a lifetime opportunities such as the Villers-Bretonneux ANZAC Dawn Service and "climbing" the Eiffel Tower. An added bonus is that we have all become professional speedwalkers with feet of steel.

- Megan Ogle


My favourite place would've been Paris. Seeing the Eiffel Tower at night was amazing and I loved the day where we went to the Louvre and did our own tour around Paris at a more relaxed pace.

- Abbey Pearce

GIRLS PROGRAMMING NETWORK

During the second week of the Term 1 holidays Irinnela Petrova and Jasleen Hundal, both in Year 10 at PCC, attended ECU’s School of Science Girls Programming Network (GPN). GPN is held each term and the overarching theme is to ‘engage girls with girls to learn about Computer Science. Each time, there is a different activity and theme on offer. First term, the girls coded a Markov Chain (Text Generator). All of the high school aged girls who attend the workshops, enjoy learning how to code in Python, playing the games, meeting other coders as well as engage with the tutors. The day is casual, fun and a chance to learn to code for free.
