Our school, along with the 42 other Catholic schools in the Diocese of Sale, will celebrate Catholic Education Week from 28 April to 5 May. The theme for this year’s celebrations is ‘Unity in Diversity’. This is a theme particularly relevant to our own school community. Pope Francis in an address given in 2014 stated this:

Unity does not imply uniformity. It does not necessarily mean doing everything together or thinking in the same way. Nor does it signify a loss of identity. Unity in diversity is actually the opposite: it involves the joyful recognition and acceptance of the various gifts which the Holy Spirit gives to each one and the placing of these gifts at the service of all members of the Church. It means knowing how to listen, to accept differences, and having the freedom to think differently and express oneself with complete respect towards the other who is my brother or sister.

Do not be afraid of differences!

Nor should we be afraid of differences. As the community of St Peter’s College we can ill-afford to be afraid, to do so can only cause division. Each and every one of us at St Peter’s College is called to respect the dignity of all and contribute to providing a caring and supportive environment for all to develop to their full potential. We continue to strive to ensure all within our community feel connected, have a sense of purpose and are hope-filled with all having a role in contributing to that, staff, students and parents. As Catholic schools, we are called to do more than just pass on the faith: we are invited to translate our faith into deeds so we are truly living God’s Word.

Last Friday evening, senior staff leaders joined with school leaders from across the Sale Diocese to attend a Thanksgiving Mass and Dinner in Traralgon. Amongst other things this was an opportunity to recognise outstanding leadership and service to Catholic Education. Two staff members from St Peter’s College were recognised, each for 27 years of service. We congratulate and thank Mr David Hansen, Deputy Principal – Head of Campus (West) and Mr Roger Hampson, Assistant RE Leader (East) for the talent, energy and passion they have exhibited and continue to do so in educating and supporting our students. A brief biography is contained of each below. Also at the dinner, there was an opportunity to celebrate the high achieving students of the class of 2016 who achieved an exceptional study score in the subject Religion and Society. Two St Peter’s students achieved a Study Score of over 40 in the subject, they were: Laura Shapendonk and Avi Tess Avaneta-Puyat. Unfortunately Avi was not able to attend, however Laura and her family together with her RE teacher Mr Fini were present for the award ceremony. Congratulations Laura.

I graduated from Monash University with a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education in 1991.  My first school appointment was at Mazenod College, Mulgrave in 1992 where I taught Maths, Science and Religious Education. In 1995 I did missionary work in Hong Kong and Taiwan before returning to Australia to take up a part time position in 1996 at Mazenod College in Western Australia. At this time I was also working part time as a chaplain in the prison system.  Later that year, I moved back to Victoria and began a position in Faith Development at St Bede’s College, Mentone. In 1998, I moved down to the Latrobe Valley to begin employment at Lavalla Catholic College, Traralgon.  I taught Maths, Physics and Religious Education.  Many amazing opportunities were offered to me here.  In particular, I led 16 students to the 2000 World Youth Day in Rome.  With the introduction of the house system at the College, I became the inaugural MacKillop House Co-ordinator.  At the end of 2003, I secured a position at Padua College, Mornington teaching Maths, Science, Physics and VCAL.  I took on House and Pastoral Co-ordinator roles as well. In 2014 I was appointed Deputy Principal, Head of West Campus at St Peter’s College, Cranbourne.  The staff and students have been a pleasure to work with and the challenges both rewarding and life giving.

2017 Roger Hampson

I completed my Year 12 studies in 1966 at St Bernard’s College, Essendon, then immediately started working in the Boarding House at Burke Hall and assisting with their Sports Program. While teaching I completed my Trained Primary Teacher Certificate at Melbourne Teachers College, while I was teaching at Bourke Hall and then went on to become Sports Master in 1970. In 1980 I was appointed as Year 7 Level Co-ordinator and continued as Sports Master, while also undertaking the Direction of the School Musical each year. I also at time undertook many roles in AFL Football, Player & Coach, at a suburban level, Melbourne Football Club Coaching team position, and Board Representation. I left teaching in 1984, to manage Olympic Park, roles then followed as CEO of AFL Essendon Football Club, Tasmanian Football League, Melbourne Tigers Basketball Club and Victorian Canine Association. In 2005 I returned to teaching at St Peter’s College, Cranbourne and have held positions as teacher, Year 8 Level Co-ordinator, Assisi House Leader at the West Campus and Assistant RE Co-ordinator at the East Campus. Highlights of my career at St Peter’s College, include being inaugural House Leader of Assisi House, Coaching 1st 18 to first SIS AFL Premiership, coaching Intermediate European Handball to State Secondary School Champions, undertaking key development role in the start-up of St Peter’s College Solomon Island Immersion Program Fundraising and Year 12 student visit each year, being honoured with the CEO Sale Faith In Action Award, and leading St Peter’s College 20 Year Pilgrimage to Assisi, Rome and Santiago with staff, students and Parishioners. My interaction and involvement with the students has always, and continues to, give me great joy and satisfaction in my day to day dealings with them, and I have many associations with individuals over many years that are as strong today as they were when they were my students from both Burke Hall and St Peter’s College.

13 Reasons why

Quite rightly there has been much written in the papers about the current series running on Netflix that explores the aftermath of a teenage girl’s suicide. Attached here is a letter of response that addresses the concerns around the potential impact a show like this might have on young vulnerable teenagers. I ask you to take the time to read this letter and where necessary act proactively in discussions with your children. Click here to open letter: St Peter’s College prides itself on our Pastoral care program and encourage any parent to make contact with the pastoral care team at the college. Key staff include: your child’s learning advisor or House Leader. Clare Ziino (East) or Anita Carter (West) are our full-time student counsellors. Senior leaders responsible for overseeing the pastoral care program at the college are: Fiona McKenna (Pastoral Leader – West), Julie Banda (Acting Head of Campus – East) or David Hansen (Head of Campus – West).

Congratulations

Congratulations is extended to Ms Carla Edgerton one of our Art, Studio Art, Visual Communication teachers at the West Campus who has been successful in one of her paintings being selected as a finalist in the Bayside Acquisitive Art Prize for 2017.

Developing the whole person @ St Peters.    It takes effort!

This week I had the pleasure of watching our students engage in many activities related to education and extra-curricular activities. One such activity got me to thinking about how much effort we apply to ensure that we can be the best that God sees in us. Tour Guides!  We have asked our Forum Leaders to become trained as our Tour Guides for visiting prospective parents and students. What better way to experience and understand the true essence of St Peter's College than through the lens of our students. What they see is so important, what they value and appreciate about their school is truly insightful. This all takes effort on behalf of these students. Effort to put themselves beyond their comfort zone and truly invest in making an effort to develop their whole self. 

If effort is defined as: a vigorous or determined attempt, then what is the reward for all this Effort – you might be surprised. So please read on.

Our school motto “Be Not Afraid “ is very important to our students. Effort requires us to be not afraid to try.

As a Catholic school, we have a strong belief that each one of us is made in the image of God, providing our school community with a framework that supports educating the whole person, and not just an academic mind.
But what does this really translate into for our students.  We want our students to develop all their gifts and achieve their full potential. A holistic approach to education we believe best prepares students successfully for life after school. Ensuring that they have the knowledge and skills, such as, communication, teamwork, technology use, critical thinking and problem solving which will allow them to adapt to an ever changing world. If that is what the school can provide, what then do we need from our students. I think it is very simple - Effort! It takes effort to be open and willing to take on challenges, new experiences, face failures and try again, and move beyond the comfort zone of familiar and ordinary.  Whist effort requires time, patience and persistence, it is rewarded in many ways such as success, fun, discovery and growth of the whole person.  
Research informs us that schools that provide multiple avenues and opportunities for students to apply their efforts, be it in a social, academic, artistic and or sporting way and provide recognition for these efforts are more effective in improving student achievement and learning.  A student needs to be able to connect the effort with achievement in their mind. When students apply effort to extra-curricular activities, they are in fact assisting with the development of their whole person. The rewards from effort can therefore feed the motivation and desire to do more and to do better in all aspects of a young person’s life. 

So I pose these questions to our students……. (some suggested answers are listed below)

  1.  Are you putting in enough effort at School to maximise your potential to develop fully as a whole person?   

  2. How do you know that your effort is good enough?  

  3. What does it mean to try harder or put in more effort? 

  4. Is effort only needed for subjects at school?

  5. Can applying effort to extra-curricular activities at school help support my ability to learn? 

  6. What does effort look like? 

Effort – such a simple word, but full of potential. Let this Term focus on effort at St Peter's College, develop your whole self. The rewards will be amazing.                                                                       
2017 Julies Article

Suggested answers to the questions:

  1. The answer to this is more questions : What else am I doing, what else could I be doing at school, at home etc)

  2. Look for the rewards!

  3. Time, patience, persistence etc.

  4. No it applies to all we do and need in our lives.

  5. Yes

  6. It looks like you are attending to things such as: turning up to class/training on time, wearing the correct uniform, bringing all materials to class, participating in SIS etc, and volunteering to do other things for other people, and above all effort means caring enough to try even when we struggle or don’t first succeed.

House Cross Country

Congratulations to MacKillop House

MacKillop House Crest

Who narrowly nudged out Augustine House in the West Campus Inter-house Cross Country on Monday.  Mr De Goldi organised numerous staff and student leaders (including sports captains Myra Wood & Tom Kelly) to help run the competition at Casey Fields.  

It was a wonderful innovation moving off campus and combining the competition with the East Campus. Although numbers may have been down, partly because of the move, it was certainly better preparation for the SIS competition later this term. 

Student Competitions

Kolbe Student Leaders did an excellent job in designing, organising and running the Amazing Race around the school during lunchtime on Tuesday.

Teams from every house were represented as they pursued answers to challenging questions at various locations around the campus.  Students certainly appeared to be enjoying themselves on what would otherwise have been a bleak Autumn day.

On Thursday, students will have a chance to participate in the Romero Running of the Bull.  I look forward to announcing the winner of this competition next week.

Four students represented the West Campus in the SIS Public Speaking competition on Tuesday at John Paul College.  

Darcy Paulka (Year 10), Milly Cortese (Year 8), Joshua Bennett (Year 9) and Bailee Cairns (Year 8) did a great job in presenting a prepared speech of 3-4 minutes on topics such as “If I ruled the world”, “I am doomed” and “The media controls how and what we think.”  

More challenging were the impromptu speeches where students were given a brief time to prepare a 2 minute speech on topics such as “Life is unfair” and “If I could change one thing”.  Well done team.

Year 7 Immunisations

A reminder that on Thursday this week, Year 7 students received their second round of immunisations. In 2017, the diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whopping cough) vaccine, along with human papillomavirus (HPV) and chickenpox vaccines will be offered to Year 7 students only.  

Thank you for supporting this vital community health initiative that protects our children in the face of some unsubstantiated and unhelpful claims by a very small minority that ignores the clear scientific research on this issue.  For more information, click on this website:

Preparing for Naplan

Naplan testing will happen from Tuesday 9 May to Friday 12 May.  

This need not be an anxious time for parents or students as you prepare for this week.  Please click here for some wise advice and guidance from Andrew Fuller.

Catholic Education Week

It has been important to celebrate all that is great about Catholic Education Week.  Staff enjoyed a morning tea on Wednesday and the Glowrey Feast Day on Friday.

Our Campus Assembly on Thursday was a chance to reflect on the theme, Unity in Diversity, and the important contribution of the Catholic Church in education.  

It is all the more important as the government announces Gonski 2.0 which will hopefully address the disappointing funding arrangement.  A source of concern for me is the report in The Age that says funding for public schools in Victoria will grow by 5.4% over the next four year, 4.3% for private schools and only 3.5% for Catholic schools.  

While I am relieved to see growth in our sector, I look forward to having it explained to me why the growth in our funding is below that of the private sector.  Until then, Catholic teachers will continue to do an amazing job through their commitment and the extra time that they dedicate to the education of our students – your children.

Learning & Teaching

With the cooler weather this weekend I found myself indoors reading the Sunday paper and came across an article about my beloved Richmond Football Club. Trent Cotchin, our captain, opened up about the pressures of leadership and where he found his strength to continue as Captain in 2017.

The article got me thinking that there are a lot of similarities at school for students. There is pressure to select the correct subjects, pressure to perform and receive a great ATAR, pressure to show improvement in NAPLAN scores, pressure to receive good grades. 

For Trent Cochin, the support to face these pressures came from his coach, Damien Hardwick, who assured him of two things. That he is loved and that we are “on this journey together”. It’s the same for students. As part of the St Peter’s College Catholic community, they are deeply loved. Loved by your parents, your teachers and by God who has created us as unique individuals. You are also on a journey together and are never alone. 

The College has established a variety of ways to support students through their educational journey from Year 7 - 12.

  • Maths Help
  • Extended Library Hours & Homework Club 
  • VCE study Hub & VCE Enhanced studies 
  • Culture of Excellence Sessions 

Click here for full details of these programs:

These programs are evidence of the love of staff for our students and through these actions ensure that every student should realise that we are “on this journey together”.

Examinations are almost upon us.

As week three of the term commences, it is timely to note that Year 10 and 11 examinations are only five weeks away. Some years ago St Peter's College implemented VCE style examinations for students in Years 10 - 12 to prepare students for VCE exams.

The purpose of this examination practice is to prepare students for final VCE examinations. Critical examination techniques should be honed during Years 10, 11 and 12 in order to maximise student academic outcomes.

Now is the time that students should be preparing for these exams and not leave preparation until the last minute.

Tips for study

  • Summarise your class notes – highlight key points
  • Make a Large A3 poster of key points to memorise and stick it up on your bedroom wall.
  • Devise a Mnemonic. I still recall the colours of the rainbow due to the ROYGBIV Mnemonic that I memorised way back in Year 11.
  • Arrange a study group with friends in the same class to revise concepts.
  • Teach your parents – if you can explain a concept to someone else it will mean that you really understand the topic.

This link provides further tips to improve or even commence your study habits! Please click here:  

Year 10/11 Exams will commence Monday 5th June and will run until Friday 9th June.

Year 12 examinations run from Tuesday 13th June until Friday 16th June

Catholic Education Week
 

2017 Catholic Ed Week

This week you will see many times and many places references to Catholic Education Week. This year we celebrate Catholic Education Week under the heading of Unity in Diversity.  

There are many students at St Peter's College, many staff, many parents, and many people connected to St Peter's College.  It is evidence of the fact that we are a large and growing community.
 
Being different is not just a good thing but a necessary thing. Pope Francis this week sent a message to the world about the "Future of You."

2017 Pope John Francis

He was commenting on the world as a place full of encounters. He was reflecting on the ability of these encounters to enrich our experiences and our life in general. He was commenting on the fact that we need each other, that we can only build a future by standing together.

In the Year 11 Retreat just last week the students were exploring the idea that different students come to us with a different personality, faith style, in fact, a whole different identity.

This is nothing to be afraid of but to be embraced.
 
And so our prayer is:

In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth,

the earth was a formless void

and darkness covered the face of the deep,

while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters.

Then God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light.

As a catholic school we shed God's light to the world.  

We are a unique and diverse community that encourages equality.

 

Regardless of your gender, age, religion, sexuality, birth place or colour of your skin we strive to make everyone free from society’s limitations.

Active April

Active April- Amazing Achievement

Students and teachers participated in Active April at St Peter’s College across both campuses with a total of 1084.1 hours at East Campus and 982.4 hours at West Campus, giving St Peter’s College a total of 2066.5 hours of physical activity in one month. 

Alongside existing Physical Education classes, activities (such as basketball, soccer, yoga, beastmode, ab blast, egg and spoon race and the staff versus students push up challenge, just to name a few) were run before school, recess, lunch and after school. Students and teachers recorded extensive activities outside of school which included walking, golf, gym, cricket and cycling. The physical activity saw an increase in active socialisation and community spirit within their own sporting teams and the St Peter’s College community. 

I would like to recognise the efforts of Tom Ryan (Year 9), Mrs Robyn Cardamone, Charlie Ratten (Year 10), Harkiart Lamba (Year 7), and Miss Karen Williams for being the top 5 contributors for the East Campus. I would also like to acknowledge the top five contributors of the West Campus Kayla Sluka (Year 10 ), Tiana Sluka (Year 9), Chelsi Allman (Year 12), Adelle St Mart (Year 8) and Chloe Harbour (Year 12) for their outstanding efforts. This initiative was received particularly well by Kolbe House at the West Campus with Learning Advisors and students being extensively involved for the second year running!  The top two Learning Advisors for Kolbe in 2017 were Mrs Overberg and Mrs Hemming.

We would like to extend a massive thank you to the Physical Education team across both campuses for giving their time to run a variety of events that engaged our students and teachers. Finally, my appreciation goes out to all the students and teachers who participated and supported the events at the college and who were physically active during Active April.
