A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Always start with compassion and love.

I read with interest two wonderful articles this weekend. One was an address by Pope Francis to a group of professional soccer players and the other a report about the Dalai Lama meeting with the Australian cricketers. I believe both groups listened in amazement at the message that each delivered which certainly went beyond both soccer and cricket.


Francis began by reminding the players that soccer, like the rest of sports, is an image of life and of society. In the field, you need one another. Each player puts their professionalism and ability forward for the benefit of a common ideal which is to play well to achieve a common goal.


Acknowledging the effort, training and sacrifice, Francis reminded how important it is that each player maintains a spirit of fellowship “leaving aside individualism and personal aspirations. If one plays thinking of the good of the group, then it is easier to achieve your goal".


Steve Smith, the Australian Cricket Captain, shared how the Dalai Lama spoke about compassion and oneness for each and every human being. If we can learn anything, it is perhaps sometimes we get a bit over the top when we are out there playing cricket. It is a tough game but, at the end of the day, it is just a game and you need to realise that at times. He shared how the Dalai Lama saw his role as connecting every human being in the world through compassion and love. Steve Smith joked he struggled at times connecting just twelve.


The message both spiritual leaders gave was that many people, especially young people, admire and observe professional sports people, sharing that through professionalism, you are transmitting a way of being to those that follow you, especially the new generations. This was something that should motivate everyone to give the best of themselves to exercise those values which are palpable in sport: fellowship, personal effort, beauty of the game, team play.


I often reflect on my role and what I am trying to do at Prendiville Catholic College. It is certainly about role modelling and connecting people - when people are connected for a common cause, there is a much better chance of success. The fact that we work with future generations provides us all with the greatest of motivations to be our very best for the students we teach and staff we work with.


PARENTS AND FRIENDS - engaged

We have an amazing Parents and Friends group at Prendiville. At our last meeting the committee signed off on $70 000 worth of support for College projects through their fundraising and parent levy. These funds will help support projects including classroom furniture, a sensory room for ESC, outdoor furniture, Stations of the Cross for our Chapel, gym foyer enhancement and the development of an archive and heritage space for the College.


READY TO LAUNCH…

Our NASA bound students and staff are all set for take for their exciting study tour. Thank you to Mr Gerard Giannasi, Mrs Judy Georgiu, Mr Paul McAuley and Ms Krystal Skelin for their organisation of a tour of a lifetime for our students. We wish our students and staff a wonderful experience.


ACC SWIMMING

Our College swimming season culminated last week with our College being represented by a large team of enthusiastic swimmers in the B Division carnival.


A huge acknowledgement of our PE/Health team for their preparation of the College swimming team for the ACC carnival this year. Preparation for such an event does not happen overnight and begins well before our school year starts. Early morning trainings, House Carnival coordination, recruitment of a large number of students to meet the requirements of the competition is challenging. The ACC competition itself is also now a very competitive competition and the top three divisions are laden with very talented and fiercely competitive swimmers.


Thank you globally to our staff, in particular, Jamie BIRRELL, Marius NDIAYE and all the PE staff for their combined commitment to present our 2017 team.


aCROSS THE WORLD - second stage

Our aCROSS the world project enters its next phase as letters of invite have now been sent to the selected schools that are being invited to receive a cross through the post. Last year, 70 crosses were either collected from the school or hand delivered by community members who visited various countries. Responses from invited schools are now being received and it has been a delight to receive acceptances from Ampleforth College in York, United Kingdom and St Erik’s Katolska Skola in Sweden and the Bucharest Christian Academy in Romania.

OUR DEVELOPING COMMUNITY HUB

As part of our College commitment to engage with our wider community the College is developing the concept of a community hub where our College facilities are being opened more to wider community services and activities. This also provides our students and community access to some fantastic opportunities and activities. At the bottom of this newsletter I draw everyone’s attention to our section ‘What’s on at the Hub?’. This will be a question asked often for months to come. The community Hub will be alive during this coming vacation period with a film, a Young Journalist Workshop and six Tim O’Magic shows. Our newsletter has all the details.


All activities are fantastic for our students. The Young Journalist workshop is an inexpensive opportunity for budding writers to learn from experienced journalists. Prendivillian Tim O’Magic provides a show for any age group and our state of the art theatre now provides a sensational movie experience.


I encourage you all to scroll down to see what’s on at The Hub. We’d love to see you at one, two or all of the events over the restful holiday break.


HOPE, JOY AND OPTIMISM

This is the final newsletter for Term 1. We celebrate a busy, positive and happy term. We celebrate a term where there has been great evidence of BIG HEARTEDNESS at Prendiville Catholic College.


The Term 1 holiday is made special by the special time of Easter. The Easter story is one highlighted by many emotions and feelings. On Easter Sunday, there is the pure emotion of joy and hope in the risen Christ. The many beautiful crosses around Prendiville Catholic College and now in many schools across the world highlight that in the complexity of life there is always a story of hope, joy and optimism of a wonderful future for all.

CRAZY SOCK DAY

Crazy Sock Day 2017 was a new initiative inspired by Brigid House Council. Throughout Project Compassion all students are encouraged to participate in fundraising activities and make contributions throughout their individual Pastoral Care Groups.


Motivated by the Brigid House theme of ‘Compassion’, the House Council were encouraged to use this as an opportunity to expand on the whole school’s fundraising efforts. Students were permitted to wear a pair of their ‘CRAZIEST’ socks for a gold coin donation.


Crazy Sock Day has provided an opportunity for all staff and students to demonstrate the faith, love and generosity of the Prendiville Catholic College community to help end poverty, promote justice, uphold dignity and help transform lives. It was a visible effort to put our faith into action to help the poor and ‘Love your neighbour’.


Prizes were awarded to the ‘craziest socks’ representative from each PCG and an overall ‘craziest socks’ voted from each House.

SCIENCE AT PRENDIVILLE

Year 9 Lake Joondalup Excursion

In Week 7, all Year 9 students attended the annual Lake Joondalup excursion at Neil Hawkins Park to look at the wetland ecosystem of the lake and surrounds. This year for the first time after many years, the lake was full of water and this did show us an interesting contrast. We had two guest speakers, both of whom are ecologists, which allowed the students to get a full insight into the lake characteristics, biodiversity and human impact.


A special thanks to Mr Van Der Kwast for organising the excursion, Mrs Harrison and Mrs Speed for running the invertebrate activity and to all other Year 9 staff who went along. The students also are to be commended for their behaviour and willingness to get involved in all activities.

Year 7 Science Club Astronomy Night.

The first event of the Year 7 Science Club this year was held on Monday 27th March. Over fifty students were treated to night time viewing of the sky using telescopes and a talk from renowned Perth astronomer Mr Richard Tonello. Not to forget Mr Devlin’s talk on Aboriginal astronomy legend around the campfire.


Students also found out about NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope which is finding worlds (Exoplanets) around other star systems. The highlight of the clear night was seeing the four big moons of Jupiter.


A special thanks to the many of our Science staff who attended on the night and especially to Mr Devlin who help coordinate the evening.

Year 10 and 11 USA Science Tour Countdown – “Like never before”

On April 7th, 25 Year 10 and 11 Prendiville Catholic College students along with four Science staff, Ms Krystal Skelin - tour coordinator, Mrs Judith Georgiu, Mr Paul McAuley and Mr Gerard Giannasi, will embark on the College’s inaugural Science tour of the USA. The 13 day trip will include going to NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre in Florida that will include having lunch with an astronaut. In Florida, we will also visit Disney’s Epcot innovation theme park along with other theme parks such as Disneyworld and Universal Studios. The group will visit the Everglades and partake on a ride on an air-boat and do a study of wetlands ecology in the area. The tour will continue onto the capital, Washington DC, where we will visit the Smithsonian Institutes such as the Air and Space Museum and Natural History Museum and then at the Spy Museum do a forensic activity. We will also be doing a night time tour of Washington's monuments.

Big image

The logo for the tour is ‘Like never before” where we will hopefully instil into the students a sense of discovery and ignite a passion for a lifelong journey in a career or interest related to science.


The tour group has done a great deal of fundraising for the tour with some of this money going towards the Catholic Caritas charity organisation. We are also thankful to our sponsors Bogdanich Fruit and Vegetable Farms and Keenit.

MATHEMATICS

HAVE SUM FUN 2017

On Friday 17th March four teams represented Prendiville Catholic College in the Have Sum Fun Mathematics Competition organised by the Mathematical Association of Western Australia. The competition for Years 7 and 8 was held at Duncraig Senior High School and the competition for Years 9 and 10 was held at Woodvale Secondary College. Our four teams of six students from Years 7 to 10 had been training one lunchtime every week. They worked through many problem solving questions together and developed as a team. Individual work on challenging questions was also completed at home.


Hundreds of students north of the river took part in the competitions. The evening comprised of four rounds of eight questions, with the intermediate competition followed by three tiebreaker questions. The object was for the teams to solve as many as possible of the eight problems in each round in 20 minutes.


It was a pleasure to watch our teams work and laugh together. They were a credit to the College and themselves as they participated fully in the competition. All of our teams performed well with the Intermediate teams placing 18th and equal 25th. The Juniors placed 28th and 31st. Across both competitions the results were very close with many teams placing within points of each other.


We wish to congratulate all teams on their commendable results. The experience of working as a team and solving problems is an important life skill. Our 2017 Junior and Intermediate team members were:


Juniors

From Year 7:

Crystal Arnatt RO5, Bella Hawton CH3, Justin Sabouri FR2, Lachlan Stapleton BR7, Luke Killeen MC3, Ashleigh Westcott CH6


From Year 8:

Myla Do CH2, Ethan Finlayson CH4, Jerome Leung RO1, Paul Muricken MC6, Nino Karow RO3, Luka Brennan CH7


Intermediate Team 1 :

Gemma Boothroyd BR5, Dara Hart MC4, Robbie Scotson FR5, Anupa Benoy SA6, Emma Preedy MC1, Madison Snelling FR8


Intermediate Team 2

Miguel DaCunha CH3, Declan Hart MC4, Jamie Scotson FR5, Hayden McQueen CH5, Helena Medic FR3, Isis Ross FR5


I would like to thank all members of the Mathematics Department for encouraging and supporting our students. Thank you also to the parents who transported our students on the evening. It was a great experience for all and the students really did Have Sum Fun.


Special mention and a very big thank you must go to Mrs Julie Mernagh and Mr Jon Barry for preparing our teams and supervising them on the evening.

CHOOSE MATHS AWARDS 2017 – Maths is Our Future

We are very pleased to announce that this year we will be fielding 4 teams of budding film-makers and mathematicians to participate in the Choose Maths Awards. Students will work throughout Term 2 to produce a 3 – 5 minute video exploring the theme Maths Is Our Future (which is certainly true in our increasingly technological society). Miss Vaini from the Creative Arts Team will be assisting the students and we look forward to showcasing their work once completed. Fabulous prizes are up for grabs so good luck to all participants.

STUDY GROUPS AND A NEW AFTER SCHOOL HELP TRIAL.

This week Year 11 and 12 ATAR Mathematics students have been invited to form study groups leading into their future exams. The idea is that groups of friends studying the same courses will register to utilise our facilities and resources in the Mathematics Break Out Area any morning before school or after school to spend their time communicating mathematically, solving problems and sharing knowledge. This is a great way to kick start your study programme, assists with test anxiety and is a positive step towards taking control of your own success. Students are encouraged to have a think about study groups over the break and direqt message Mrs Williamson at the start of next term.


Another exciting development in Maths for next term is that we welcome back to Prendiville an outstanding mathematician – Elena Boothroyd. We are very excited to have Elena running after school help on Monday afternoons from 4 – 5pm, specifically to work with our Year 11 and Year 12 Methods and Specialist students. We thank Elena in advance for dedicating her time and energy to our current students and we are sure she will have a wealth of tips and tricks that can help them to achieve their full potential.

THE HUB

Be sure to check out the exciting holiday program happening at The Hub this break. All details are included at the end of this edition of the newsletter.

SPORTS NOTICES

ACC Swimming Carnival

108 Prendiville students competed at the B Division Swimming carnival last Tuesday at HBF Stadium. Throughout the carnival the following was achieved:


  • 1 ACC record
  • 8 school records
  • 2 age champions
  • 3 top 3 age champions
  • 1 top 4 age champion
  • 16 separate ACC All Star nominations (15 individual and 1 relay) as the best performing student/team in an event across all 9 divisions.
  • 12th Place in the virtual swimming carnival. Essentially, what the results would have been if we had competed in a 65 lane pool against all other ACC Schools from the 9 different divisions at one carnival.

Despite this impressive list we finished 8th in the B Division carnival by 6 points and will compete in the C Division carnival next year. This combination of results is certainly the strangest we have seen in the past 5-6 years and was utterly gut wrenching to staff, coaches and our swimming team on the day. Having been in the mix for a 4th place finish for most of the day, to hear our final score read out in 8th place created a very strange atmosphere amongst this year’s squad. The team result was incredibly disappointing but the result is finalised and it simply gives us an opportunity to turn the corner next year. It certainly does not detract from the achievements of some of our individuals on the day.

Our U15 Girls 4x50m Freestyle Relay team consisting of Alyssa, Makayla, Neve MacLeod and Teliah Sumatluck and the U16 Boys Relay team consisting of Ben, Ciaran McChord, Ethan McDermid and Patrick Mullane also broke the school record.


To finish, I would like to include a paragraph I sent to all of this years swimmers following the carnival. It very simply and plainly states what went wrong and what we have to do to fix it. Thank you to everyone - parents, past & present students, coaches, officials and staff for all of your support through what was a long swimming season. We should not be disheartened by the result but rather inspired by it. Inspired in the knowledge that we have an opportunity to amend it in 2018.


"This next bit is not easy to write and I'd say won't be easy to read. We got relegated because we were not good enough. You all swam your hearts out and it wasn't good enough. Quite simply we need to get better. All of us need to get better. Every swimmer, reserve, coach and teacher needs to get better. This is not just on all of you. It is on me, Mr Ndiaye, the rest of the PE staff, Tarni, Paolo and Tristan too.


Improving in the pool is an obvious one, getting to an extra training session a week might result in 6 of you getting that extra place/point that makes up the difference this year. As staff, we can analyse the results more thoroughly and structure our training sessions accordingly to focus on our weaknesses more but this still relies on people being at training.


To those of you who trained your butts off this term already, what can you do? Maybe encourage others who you know should be at training to get there. Better yet pester, badger, annoy them to the point where they turn up so you will leave them alone. That might make the difference.”


CAS Sport

The Term 1 CAS Season is almost at its end and I would like to congratulate all players, coachers, sports captains, scorers, referees, managers and parent supporters on what has been another successful season of Summer CAS. We will have to wait until the conclusion of all finals matches in Week 10 to announce all award winners from the various teams and to acknowledge any of our champion teams.


As Term 1 CAS draws to a close, preparations for the Term 2 Winter CAS Season are well and truly underway. The biggest change we see from a school perspective is the official inclusion of stand alone Year 7 teams in the CAS competition. All students who are interested in trying out for one of the 15 various teams we have on offer should visit the following link (Winter CAS Registration) to complete the online registration process.


Any senior students who are wishing to acquire service learning hours through coaching or umpiring duties need to send a direct message to me directly so we can discuss this in person.


Interhouse X Country Carnival - Friday 28th April

As students commence Term 2 on a Thursday, preparation for the Interhouse XC is underway and will need to be finalised before the end of the Term 1. The Carnival takes place straight after school on Friday afternoon in Week 1 and consists of 2 laps around the school block plus a start and finishing lap on the school oval totalling roughly 4km. Each year we have close to 500 students and staff participating from casual walkers all the way up to our competitive runners. Points are not allocated based on the position you finish but rather the time you complete the course in. These cut off times can be viewed on the SPORTAL page. Following the race all students receive a drink and sausage sizzle free of charge. A big change this year is the use of an electronic timing system and timing chips for every student.


To assist with catering, all students who are wishing to participate are asked to please nominate online through the following link Interhouse XC Registration. Although the carnival is used as a major selection tool for the ACC Cross Country carnival later in the term, this is by far the most accessible event to all students at Prendiville therefore all are encouraged to attend to accumulate points for their House towards the overall Interhouse Sports Trophy for the year.


100K Club/ XC Training

We have already commenced the 100K Club this year and I would like to say thank you to all of those students, and indeed parents, for your support already this year. As we recommence in Term 2, 100K Club will start up again on the Monday of Week 2 due to the Interhouse XC being on the afternoon of the first Friday.


For those unaware, the 100K Club is open to all students of the College and is simply a running club. Each session the number of km’s are recorded for each student and added to their overall tally. Through consistent participation, students are able to accumulate their km’s until they reach the milestone and are inducted into the 100K Club. Each student receives a certificate to mark the achievement. Their tallies roll from one year to the next and students can then work towards the 200, 300, 400, or even 500K clubs throughout their time at school. A list of all time high achievers is on the SPORTAL page recognising these achievements.


Each session can be tailored to an individual’s fitness levels. Some students may only run 1 or 2 km’s where as others have covered up to 12 in one session. Any students who wish to participate must collect a permission slip from the PE Office and bring it along to their first session.


SSWA Interstate team opportunities.

I have been impressed with the number of Prendiville students who have nominated and tried out for some of the SSWA Interstate teams so far. Even if you don’t make the final team, having the opportunity to train and play against some of the best athletes in the state in your chosen sport can be an incredibly valuable experience and may improve your performances once you return to your sport at club/school level. Not only are a number of links to current sports available but there is also an overall list of when nominations close for a host of different teams throughout the year. Parents and indeed students are encouraged to view this list to keep track of when relevant nomination and event dates are approaching.


Sporting Excellence

Congratulations to Mathilde Lapierre (Year 8) on her performance at the State Athletics Finals. Her 12.89s for the 100m was not only good enough to snare a bronze medal but also came with an invitation to compete at an international meet in Malaysia in July.

YEAR 11 CERTIFICATE III VISUAL ARTS RALLY CAR SPRAY PAINT INCURSION

Last Wednesday the Year 11 Certificate III Visual Arts class participated in our annual Rally Car spray paint incursion. Local street artist Trevor Bly again facilitated the day giving students an insight into his developing career and the practical skills required to complete the mural on the car. Kelvin Woods (father of Alyssa, Year 10) has signed up for the 2017 Cancer Council SBox Rally where he will drive from Adelaide to Cairns in a 1980 Fiat X1/9 Roadster raising money for the charity. This is Kelvin’s sixth rally and over the years he has raised over $30 000. The Creative Arts Department would like to thank him for this great opportunity for the students to create a vibrant mobile artwork.

DANCE

Dance Company 2017

On Wednesday 21st March approximately 50 students from Years 8-12 auditioned to be apart of the 2017 Prendiville Dance Company. The Dance Department would like to congratulate the 34 successful applicants who are now part of this elite team. Under the directorship of Mrs Johnson, the Dance Company have their eyes set on winning the Secondary Dance Shield for the third time at the Catholic Performing Arts Festival in late August where they will compete against over 40 other Catholic schools across Western Australia. They will be rehearsing on Wednesday afternoons of Terms 1, 2 and 3 to create, learn and perfect their lengthy performance piece consisting of contemporary and hip-hop dance styles. We wish them all the best for their upcoming rehearsals and performances.


Year 8/9 Dance Ensemble

A second ensemble audition was held on Tuesday 28th March for the 2017 Year 8/9 Dance Ensemble. The Dance Department would like to congratulate the 20 successful applicants who are now part of this junior elite team. This ensemble will also be performing at the Catholic Performing Arts Festival and other College events. They will be rehearsing on Tuesday mornings of Term 1, 2 and 3, under the direction of Mrs Johnson, to learn their Broadway jazz routine. Good luck, ladies!


Jessica Johnson

Dance Teacher

THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE

With each rehearsal that passes, not only do we see the students involved in Thoroughly Modern Millie flourish but the reality of Opening Night looms closer. We haven’t had to hit any panic buttons though, and I am pleased to report that we are on track to deliver another stunning production.


Did you know?

· The musical Thoroughly Modern Millie is based on the film of the same name.

· The 1967 romantic comedy film starred Julie Andrews as Millie Dillmount.

· When TMM debuted in Broadway in 2002 it was awarded six Tony Awards, including Best Musical!
