World Youth Day 

WORLD YOUTH DAY

This week staff member Miss Maria Gonsalvez sets off for 2016 World Youth Day in Krakow, Poland. Miss Gonsalvez will travel and work with other teachers, staff and students from the Diocese of Sale on the 2 week pilgrimage to Poland which will climax in the open air mass conducted by Pope Francis to well over 2 million young people who have travelled from around the world to celebrate and share their faith. The theme for World Youth Day this year is 'Blessed are the Merciful, for they will be shown Mercy'. In a world which is crying out for mercy, we pray that with God’s help we will come to an understanding that mercy requires us to forgive, to listen, to persevere, to heal and to act.

mARIAKrakow

God, merciful Father,
in your Son, Jesus Christ, you have revealed your love
and poured it out upon us in the Holy Spirit, the Comforter,
We entrust to you today the destiny of the world and of every man and woman”.
We entrust to you in a special way
young people of every language, people and nation:
guide and protect them as they walk the complex paths of the world today
and give them the grace to reap abundant fruits
from their experience of the Krakow World Youth Day.
Heavenly Father,
grant that we may bear witness to your mercy.
Teach us how to convey the faith to those in doubt,
hope to those who are discouraged,
love to those who feel indifferent,
forgiveness to those who have done wrong
and joy to those who are unhappy.
Allow the spark of merciful love
that you have enkindled within us
become a fire that can transform hearts
and renew the face of the earth.
Mary, Mother of Mercy, pray for us.
Saint John Paul II, pray for us.
Saint Faustina, pray for us.

Year 12 Parent Teacher Interviews

As part of our focus on improving student learning through the provision of formative feedback we have introduced two new activities into our Year 12 school year. First at the end of semester one, with all Year 12 students completing their VCE undertaking trial exams across each of their elected subjects. Each year we will use these trial exams to provide our students with feedback on their progress to date. To further assist them in this understanding of how they are performing we have scheduled Parent Teacher Interviews for our Year 12 students next Tuesday to coincide with the Futures Expo Event. This will be a unique opportunity for Parents, Students and Teachers to evaluate students performance to date and then set new goals and strategies for the last 10 weeks of their academic year, Year 12 students will no longer have interviews scheduled for the end of Term 3.

Try A VET Course Day

On Monday of this week a VET Course Taster Day, convened by VET & VCAL Coordinator Mr Chris O’Hara, was held for all of our Year 9 Students from the East and West Campuses. Students were able to see the VET courses on offer at St Peter’s College and through other TAFE Colleges, as well as gain an understanding of how VET course will assist in their learning and help develop a Career Pathway, whether that be through to University via the VCE or onto a trade via the VCAL Program. Students going into Year 10 and Year 11 next year will be able to explore the VET/VCAL and VCAL options in detail at the Futures Expo held next Tuesday at the West Campus.  This is a compulsory event for all students from Year 8-12 and begins the important 2017 subject selection process for these students.

Child Safety Policy & Code of Conduct 

As advised earlier this year the Victorian Government has put into legislation new minimum Child Safe Standards that all Victorian schools are required to meet by the 1st of August 2016. As part of our actions to meet those standards staff from the East & West Campus were involved in a Child Safety Seminar conducted by Childwise on the last day of Term 2. A very productive session was held for all staff to provide input into the formulation of a new ChildSafety Policy and Code of Conduct governing all staff and volunteers at St Peter’s College.  A working party has now been established under the direction of College RE Leader - Mr Steve Nash to take the consultation with our parents from the Parents & Friends Meetings this term and our Student Representative Council into the formulation of a Code of Conduct for our school community. Parents will have the opportunity to comment on this draft Code of Conduct and Policy at the next Parents and Friends meeting on the 30th of August.

Congratulations

St Peter’s College - West Campus Senior Boys Basketball team won the pennant in Division 2 of the Victorian College Championships at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre this week. It was a fantastic effort by Coach DeGoldi and the team taking on and beating Penola College 25 - 10 in a tense final.

Bereavement

Yr 9 Try a VET Day

On Monday 18th July, the College ran a “Try a VET Day” for Year 9 Students for both the East and West Campus.  Year 9 students had a “taste tester” of VET subjects offered primarily at St. Peter’s College, but also other options offered external to the College. The Students not only developed an understanding of the requirements of what a VET course entails, but undertook practical tasks that are relevant to each course. 

Students were asked to select 2 preferences from the following:

Information, Digital Media & Technology, Sport & Recreation, Building & Construction, Engineering, Electro Technology, Fashion / Textiles, Music, Hair, Beauty, Early Childhood, Interactive Gaming, Hospitality, Automotive Studies

I'm sure the students gained knowledge and hands on experiences which will assist in their subject selection for 2017 at the upcoming Futures Expo.

What is VETiS?

Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) programs are designed to expand opportunities and pathways for senior secondary students, and improve post compulsory educational outcomes as well as address the employment needs of industry in Victoria.

VETiS can offer:

  • A nationally recognised Vocational Certificate with credits built in just like other subjects - therefore counts towards the VCE & VCAL Certificates - contributes to the ATAR or study score 
  • An opportunity to put knowledge and skills into practice in a simulated or actual workplace environment known as Structured Workplace Learning (SWL)
  •  A qualification which will provide access to further training or chances of getting work when finishing school

I look forward to discussing this further at the Futures Expo next Tuesday.

Building Progress

As the first sod was turned this week so begins the next stage of our building program, the Stage 3B Coffey Centre for Creativity building. As the semester progresses I will endeavour to provide both a photographical and a written update of progress. It is another exciting time and an important historical moment in the overall development of the East Campus.

With the projected growth in numbers arriving on the campus in 2017, this building which will house Year 10 and Year 11 classrooms, as well as a dedicated IT hub, and provisions to deliver Textiles studies, is a welcome addition. Alongside this building project, the next stage of our landscape design will commence, providing the opportunity for the community to come together at a central meeting point

Try a VET Day

Year 9 Students travelled to the West Campus on Monday to learn and experience in an interactive way VET subjects that are on offer for students as they commence their subject selection process for 2017. The reports back suggested that students were very engaged in the day. VET (Vocational Education and Training) subjects provide students with the opportunity to broaden their possible career pathways leading to increasing opportunities.

Year 10 Subject Selection

Year 10 Students have begun their subject selection process for their VCE program this week. Parents and students had the opportunity for individual interviews with key staff. This has come at an important time, being the week prior to the Futures Expo. These conversations covered such things as, VTAC preferences, VCE versus VCAL and pre-requisite subjects. These were and are critical conversations to have to ensure informed decisions are made ahead of the subject selection process.

Futures Expo

A reminder of a significant calendar event taking place next week. Next Tuesday, July 26th is the Futures Expo day at the West Campus for both East and West Campus students. All students, Years 8-12 are required to attend. It is a student free day, with students required to book into workshops to be held at the West Campus. The workshops, as well as the subject displays and tertiary information booths provide essential information to inform students and families regarding the subject selection process and possible future study and career pathways.  

Important: The Careers Expo is held at the West Campus. All relevant information can be found in the material previously sent. 

The Role of Parent’s in Career Choice

I came across an article this week that gave a very good summary of the influence parents can make to effectively supporting their child when making critical choices about subject selection and career choices. In part the article states:

Parents serve as a major influence in their children’s career development and career decision- making. Parents want their children to find happiness and success in life and one factor which influences happiness and success is career choice. Research also indicates that when students feel supported and loved by their parents, they have more confidence in their own ability to research careers and to choose a career that would be interesting and exciting. This is important because studies show that adolescents who feel competent regarding career decision-making, tend to make more satisfying career choices later in life. (Keller 2004).

Parents influence the level of education or training that their children achieve; the knowledge they have about work and different occupations; the beliefs and attitudes they have to working; and the motivation they have to succeed. Most of this is learned unconsciously – children and teenagers absorb their parents attitudes and expectations of them as they grow up.

Some of the key influencers are:

  • The expectations parents have for their children's education and career
  • The example they set for their children
  • The values they show to their family, friends and to society
  • The opportunities they offer their children to learn and develop
  • The kind of parent-child relationship they develop Click Here:

Tips to help your child’s career development:

  • Encourage your children to get as much education as possible
  • Help them to discover their innate talents and skills
  • Develop their knowledge of the world of work
  • Teach them decision- making skills
  • Value gender equity and cultural diversity
  • Become aware of career resources/ education and training opportunities
  • Observe the effects of work experience Click Here:

SRC Report

The SRC met this week some significant agenda items discussed. Discussion firstly centred around making a decision on what to spend a generously donated $1,000 dollars from our College Parents and Friends. Students have been conscious to consult widely and involve students in the decision making progress. The short-list was established with the next step in the process calling for students to select their preference. I look forward to reporting on the outcome of the consultation process in a future newsletter. The SRC were also asked to input to the development of a policy and protocols associated with the new Child Safety guidelines.

St Peter’s College is committed to ensuring all partners, staff, parents and students are actively engaged in the formation of these guidelines and in the information and knowledge sharing around this new policy initiative. It was impressive to witness how engaged the students were to the process and how seriously they took their role. Their input has added greatly to the final products, particularly around the policy itself and in the development of a code of conduct for staff.

Wishing all a wonderful week ahead

Subject Selection & Futures Expo

The focus this week has been on subject selection with a number of Year 10 interviews with parents and students seeking guidance as they consider either VCAL, VCE or VET options for Year 11. Our Pastoral Period on Thursday also assists students in considering their Pathway for study and eventually some career and employment.  

It is understandable that many of our young people are unsure about what they may want to do in the future.  As parents, we need not panic about this, but support our child in pursuing some goals knowing that it may open up other options in the future.  If the student is still not clear what subjects to choose, then my suggestion is to use the following three guidelines for students:

  1. Choose a subject you enjoy
  2. Choose a subject which you are good at
  3. Choose a subject that will help you with your goals (or that will keep your options open)

I look forward to meeting many parents at the Futures Expo on Tuesday, 26 July from 11 am to 8.00 pm.  Although this is a student free day, all students in Years 8 to 12 are expected to attend to enquire about Subjects and Career Pathways.  Year 7 students are welcome to attend.

MindMatters Survey

At Futures Expo, you will be invited to take part in a survey about St Peter’s College’s approach to Mental Health and Wellbeing.  This will be set up in the Hall Foyer and can be accessed electronically or you can fill in a hard copy survey.

The survey has been issued by the College Leadership Team, which is gathering parent and family opinions as part of the College's involvement with MindMatters, a mental health initiative for Secondary Schools.  Your response will help inform the College's future work on mental health.

The survey contains 28 questions and will take about 5 to 10 minutes to complete.  Your response will not identify you and it will be confidential. 

If you have any more questions about MindMatters, talk with me at the Futures Expo or Click Here to go to their website:

McGuigan Shield House Competition

Some of the activities happening at the moment include Indoor Soccer and from next week House Chess will commence over 4 weeks. Please encourage your child to be involved in supporting their House and active in the co-curricular life of the College.

Digital Environment Safety

The other day I was warned of a wild creature roving the College grounds. It looked like this:

 Pokemon
I am reliably informed by the Year 9 students that the creature is a Pokemon called Eevee.

There's been plenty of interesting things going on in the digital environment lately, we've heard a lot about the Musical.ly app and of course, Pokémon Go has absolutely exploded into popularity.

Brett Lee, our cyber safety presenter from the 2016 House Welcome Evening, has made a video highlighting some interesting points on Musical.ly which you can view here

He has also directed us to the following article about Pokémon Go to address some of the safety concerns surrounding the game. Please click here to view the following link: What Parents with young children need to know about Pokémon Go

Religious Education News

RECONCILIATION

Last week tour Year 9 students spent the day on Reconciliation in different forms.

It happened to coincide with the attack in Nice, France. Not long after this was the coup in Turkey and shortly after that some more shootings in America.

Reconciliation is about bringing people together and sorting differences. The opposite brings violence and destruction.

On Friday our Year 9 Students had some time with young people from the Reach Foundation that challenged them to acknowledge hurt and to seek forgiveness. It is always a shock to see how unaware of our actions we human beings can be.  The day looked at some great Reconcilers, people who have shown an incredible capacity to bring a greater sense of togetherness after great hurt.

We also looked at Zaccheaus and the Prodigal Son, one who sought forgiveness and one who gave.

Let us bring a little more forgiveness, hope and togetherness to our world.
