The Class of 2016

Over the last week we have had the pleasure of farewelling our Year 12 Students from the East & West Campuses who represent the Graduating Class of 2016. Our ritual of farewell has included a small Final Liturgy for just the Year 12 Students.  A farewell in each House where their contribution to each House was celebrated.  A morning tea with our Teachers provided by the Year 12 Students in appreciation of all that the staff do for them along the way. The signing of old school uniforms. A whole College Assembly where we begin by singing our College Hymn 'Be Not Afraid' one last time, followed by the final dismissal of students and symbolic releasing of balloons. Our ritual of farewell concluded with the family celebration at the Graduation Mass and Valedictory Dinner.

Rituals are important because they give us the opportunity for those who are left behind to say thank you for all that this group of students have given to our community and to send our love, best wishes, prayers and encouragement for their journey ahead.  For those leaving us the different events mark this very important time in their life ensuring they will remember it.

Sometimes our most important moments go by in a flash. Through our rituals we want all of our Year 12 Students to hold onto this moment and be proud of what they have achieved whether it be VCE or VCAL the successful completion of 13 years of formal education is worth celebrating.

On behalf of the St Peter’s College Community I thank the Class of 2016 for the way they have generously invested of themselves over their time here, upheld our values of dignity and respect and by doing so help to make this College one we are proud of.  I wish them all our prayers and best wishes for the future ahead.

An enormous amount of work goes into the preparation and celebrations for our graduating class so I want to thank our Heads of Campus Mr Hansen and Mr Black, all of our House Leaders, Learning Advisors, Marketing Manager Mrs Hampson and Administration Support Staff who have all played a significant part in our preparations over the last few weeks to ensure that our students do indeed finish well. I also extend my thanks to our RE Team consisting of Mr Nash, Mr Hampson and Ms Joyce for their assistance in staging our beautiful Graduation Masses celebrated by Fr Joseph, which focused on the need for gratitude and thanksgiving in our lifes journey.

Valedictorian Medal - Mr Jean-Paul Antione

The Valedictorian Medal is awarded each year at the Valedictory Dinner in acknowledgment of a staff member’s outstanding contribution to the St. Peter’s College Community.

This year Mr Jean-Paul Antione has been recognised for his contribution to the Development of the East Campus over the last six years. He has been pivotal in the establishment of the Culture and Ethos of this College community, particularly in the areas of faith and environmental stewardship. Mr Antione has brought his faith to life through establishing Student and Family Prayer Groups which meet regularly at the East Campus.

He has also been a leader in the establishment of an Environment Club at the East Campus which has maintained vegetable gardens and educated the student community on the connection between our faith and stewardship where all members of the community have a responsibility to leave our local and global world in a better place than which we found it.

Mr Antione has brought the elements of Faith, Education and Service alive for our students so that they may understand their responsibility in bringing the kingdom of God to life in our community.  Sadly Mr Antione’s father passed away last weekend and he was unable to attend our Year 12 celebrations. We keep him and his family in our prayers.

Congratulations - Book In A Day Champions

At the conclusion of the SIS Book in a Day Competition, the West Campus team under the direction of Mr David Stretch was awarded First Prize for its novella titled 'The Forgotten'.

The competition, which saw each competing school brainstorm and write a novel in one day, was a flurry of excitement and collaborative teamwork. The end results were judged by Ms Clare Halifax the publishing director at Scholastic Books. In her judgment she made the following comments:

"I selected 'The Forgotten' as the winner. I thought all the entries of an excellent standard, but 'The Forgotten' stood out in terms of pacing and structure – which added to the sense of intrigue. The writing showed a good understanding of using dialogue, description and action to tell a story". 

Congratulations to our students and Mr Stretch on their wonderful achievement.

Year 9 Camp

Yr 9 Camp

During Term 4 our Year 9 Students from both the East and West Campus have the opportunity to participate in the Annual Outdoor Education Camp based at Angelsea. Over the four day’s students learn how to surf, abseil, and rock climb as well participate in a number of other educational activities which focus on team building and communication. 

It is a program, which challenges students to get outside their comfort zone and learn new knowledge and skills. Over the years the great majority of students have thoroughly enjoyed this camp and return to school with a renewed sense of energy, enthusiasm and improved self-esteem as a key indicator that that learning and growth has taken place for our students.

I wish to thank our Camp Coordinators Mr Brown and Mr Furlong and all the staff, who through their enthusiastic participation in this Program, make it such an enjoyable learning experience for our students.

“Class of 2016 you are dismissed”.

With these words from Mr Hogan to the assembled Year 12 students at their final College Assembly the Year 12 Students were farewelled. It was a moving moment for staff, students and parents alike and for our Year 12 Students a special and emotional time. Thirteen years of education is a wonderful achievement. It has been a wonderful few weeks as the strudents have counted down to this moment.

A number of milestones were experienced and achieved during these final weeks. These milestones will very soon, in the years to come, be known as traditions. But in 2016, for the foundational students and first Graduating Class of the East Campus, there was a particular poignancy about each event as it was the first any had experienced. In each and every event our Year 12 Students were exceptional, displaying dignity and pride, participating fully and respectfully. They are to be congratulated for the manner in which they have presented themselves during this time.

This week began with a shared lunch with staff, a time for students to give thanks for the support they received from the teaching staff. Lachie Buchanen spoke glowingly of the support both past and present teachers have given through their six years at East. This was followed by a moving unveiling ceremony of a plaque linked to a tree which will forever be known as the Year 12 2016 tree. Mr Hogan together with our College Captain Lachlan performed the honours. A tree is a symbolic symbol of growth and strength. It was articulated that the roots can symbolise the foundational building blocks of education, they symbolise the provision of a firm foundation able to withstand the tough times and ensure its network of roots provide the nutritional framework to ensure growth. The branches symbolise the many pathways our students will begin to travel down, all branches however connect back to the main trunk of the tree, a solid reliable structure which we hope represents the influence St Peter’s College has had on the development of each and every individual. The tree is located at the top of the avenue closest to the statue of St Peter’s and each and every year a new plaque will be commissioned to celebrate the next class of Year 12 Students contribution to the St Peter’s College community. Wednesday was a wonderful celebration beginning with a House Assembly where the House had the opportunity to acknowledge our Graduating Students contributions, this was followed by a wonderful College Assembly.

East 2016 Tree

Under the shade of a large marquee, some further traditions commenced. Amongst this was the presentation of two significant awards. The ADF Long Tan Youth Leadership and Teamwork Awards recognise students who demonstrate leadership and teamwork within both the school and the broader community and who display strong values, such as doing one’s best, respect for others and 'mateship', that are integral to Australian society. The award is presented to one Year 10 Student and one Year 12 Student. This was the first time we were able to nominate a Year 12 Student.

Congratulations to the following worthy recipients:

  • Year 10 – Eliza Guest
  • Year 12 – Will Veenman

Congratulations is also extended to a number of students who were short-listed, these included:

  • Year 10 – Jack Johns, Michael Miller, Zachary Moroney
  • Year 12 – Lachlan Buchanen

The other Award presented was the Caltex Award, presented to the first time to a Year 12 Student, this Award is presented to a worthy candidate based on the following criteria: recipients should excel in these categories, though not necessarily all of them: Academic – achieves scholastically across a range of subjects, Attitude – willing to help others; makes selfless contributions, Personal conduct – exemplary at all times, Leadership – a role model for other students, Service – participates in school and community activities, Sport – represents the school without necessarily being a champion, Arts – participates enthusiastically in the cultural and artistic life of the school.

Congratulations to Brandon Gomez, a worthy winner. Brandon was one of three students nominated, the other two were Will Veenman and Quincy Canceran. Well done to all.

Another significant moment was when Stephanie Barnes, our Liturgy Captain, presented a legacy gift to Mr Hogan. The legacy item was a Missal. I share some of her words here on these pages: 

“ We, the Year 12s of 2016, feel privileged to be in a position to present this particular gift of a missal knowing that all future school masses will use this to guide their liturgies. Scripture provides the foundation for action and we hope that in presenting this particular gift that St Peter's College continues to grow and contribute to the faith development of all.” 

The missal was then blessed at the Graduation Mass presided over by Fr Joseph and used for the first time. The missal is a wonderful gift illustrating the significant role faith development and Catholic identity plays in who we are as a College. The last of the events was a wonderful celebration where students, parents, partners and staff came together for the Valedictory Dinner, a fitting way to conclude our official ties with the class of 2016. Ms Connell spoke on behalf of the College Community about our Year 12 Students, this is a small snippet: 

“St Peters College hope is that you will all come to see that you have been blessed with a wonderful Catholic education which you will find is one of the great privileges you will experience in your life, one that I’m sure you will grow to appreciate as you mature. It is our hope that you will take the experiences, opportunities and the friendships you have gained here and allow them to be the driving force and source of immense support for you making a difference in the world. We encourage you to make the most of your God given talents". 

East Tree

On behalf of the St Peter’s College East Community we wish all our Year 12s the very best for their Exam Program and for everything that comes their way afterwards.

Year 12 Graduation

Our final school days with the Year 12 students involved wonderful celebrations of their time at St Peter’s College.  On Monday, the students gathered during recess in the staff room to join us in morning tea. They were generous in their provision of food and enjoyed the time to chat with staff members in a more relaxed atmosphere.  Teachers were able to sign and write positive messages on uniforms, teddy bears and booklets. This morning tea signifies the changing relationship with the College community as our students graduate and move into adulthood.

On Tuesday, the day began with House Assemblies to farewell our Year 12 Students.  Very moving tributes came from both staff and fellow students for our individual graduates. It was marvellous to be able to see the effort, energy and genuine emotion at these Assemblies.

The final Campus Assembly was very well attended by parents and families of the Year 12 students.  I am pleased in the growing interest in this event over the past couple of years as our wider College community comes to celebrate with us and enjoy a BBQ afterwards. The assembly was a genuine celebration of our Year 12 students, punctuated with some great humour and talent. Worthy of note, were the farewell speeches of our College Captains, Karena McNeely and Matthew Pask and the Legacy Gift reflection from our Environment Captain Natasha Xerri.  The final video directed by Nicholas Russo was very entertaining and the slide show that Laura Warburton organised was quite emotional.  Adam Lynch and Latisha Dalton entertained with a rap song and a number of our Year 12 girls performed clever parody of songs that entertained everyone present. The final bell and release of balloons was a poignant moment for all our Year 12 students and their families.

West Grad Mass

The Graduation Mass at St Agatha’s was an important reminder to us of the loving care of our God in the lives of the students and an opportunity to give thanks for their many gifts.  Mr Stephen Nash and Ms Marissa Joyce did a great job in organising this event. The day finished with the Valedictory Dinner at the Cranbourne Turf Club. This was the first time the event was held off campus and it was a great success.  The work of Ms April Hampson and House Leaders, Ms Mona Esmaty, Mr Gerard Brown and Mr Jason Blackburn was phenomenal.

Year 9 Camp.

Our second Year 9 Camp involving Kolbe, MacKillop, Marian and Romero students departs on Tuesday, 25th October for four days and three nights at Anglesea.  Mr Matt Laurie is leading this camp and our hope is that the students may get some slightly warmer weather than the last camp. The camp is an opportunity for increasing the bonding between students, and developing their leadership, teamwork, aquatic and outdoor skills. 

Parents are reminded that the Year 9 Camp is a compulsory school activity that was agreed to during the enrolment of your child.  If there is a foreseeable problem, then it would be important for students and/or parents to contact the relevant House Leader prior to the camp.  If accident or sickness prevents your child from attending, please contact the school on the morning of departure for the camp.

Student Leadership

Next week, we will begin speeches and elections for House Forum Leaders at each year level.  All of these students will have an important role in the leadership of their House in the coming year and some of them will form the 2017 Student Representative Council.  Please encourage your child to consider stepping forward, not being afraid, and try for a leadership position. It is one of the qualities we want to develop in all our students. It not only benefits our College, but assists them to prepare for an ever changing workforce and life outside school.

HeadStart Program.

Please note the following dates for the HeadStart Program which is the move of your child into the next year level for the 2017 Learning Program. The actual dates vary from those published in the Student Record Book and it is important to note the start dates, the finish dates and the student free day. This is an important time for students to start their new work and it is important that students do not take an early holiday during this period.

  • Monday, 14th November: Student Free Day
  • Tuesday, 15th November: Head Start begins.
  • Friday, 2nd December: 2017 Year 11 & 12 students finish.  Year 11 Celebration.

Learning & Teaching

Yea 10- 11 Examinations 

Students in Years 7- 9 do not undertake Examinations. In our Junior School, students undertake formative tasks throughout the Semester and are given feedback and opportunities to develop their skill sets.

By Year 10 the timetable is aligned with VCE subjects and students begin to prepare for Senior Studies. This has allowed for Year 10 Students to increase contact time in each of their chosen subjects and provide depth in studies. As part of this move to a senior model Year 10 students will undertake VCE style examinations. The purpose of this examination practise is to prepare students for final VCE Examinations. Critical examination techniques should be honed during Years 10 and 11 in order to maximise student academic outcomes. Students should have a detailed set of study notes prepared throughout the Semester. Memory techniques such as chunking, acronyms and quiz questions should be rehearsed. 

For West Campus Students in Year 10 and Year 11 Exams will be held in the Hall. East Campus Examinations will take place in the Administration Centre Building. Students are expected to attend in full College uniform. 

It is the responsibility of each student to know their own individual exam timetable and to ensure they arrive ten minutes before each examination. All students should ensure they have the correct equipment for each exam and should be familiar with strict NO MOBILE PHONE POLICY during examinations.

Year 10 and 11 students are only required to attend  school during examination times. For those who wish to study at the College between examinations McGuigan 1 and 2 classrooms will be available for Year 10 West Campus students. Year 11 West Campus students may study in the Library. Lyons 3 classroom will be dedicated to private study at East Campus. These venues are for individual, quiet study and will be supervised by staff. During class times no student should be wandering around the school, disrupting the learning of others.

Youth Gathering

Telling twenty two Year 9 students that they needed to be at our East Campus ready to board a bus by 6.30am for the Annual Diocesan Youth Gathering was not easy.

Despite their initial misgivings though, they all managed to be on time and found out that it was well worth the early start.

This year’s theme was ‘Mercy’ as 2016 was declared a Holy Year of Mercy by Pope Francis late last year. Although the Year of Mercy is drawing to a close, the activities of the day encouraged students to build acts of mercy into their everyday lives. Students were shown how even the smallest act of mercy can make an enormous difference.

Also attending were four Year 11 students who assisted the Diocese Staff to run the day.

Our Year 11 Students, along with other Year 11 students from schools around the diocese, had leading roles in the liturgy, games, and small group discussion conducted throughout the day.

The day was a great opportunity for our students to test their leadership skills and I am sure that each of the St Peter’s College students learnt a lot.

Thank you to all students who attended from both East and West Campuses and Mr Brian Wallwork for assisting on the day.

Arts News

Congratulations to Latisha Dalton who was awarded the Principal’s Prize for Art in 2016


Arts award

"I created this piece to represent how females are communicated in social media and the struggles that are faced in regards to this sense of unobtainable beauty standards that women feel that have to achieve. The model in the artwork has been based on an image that has been manipulated in Photoshop and then through blended oil paints creating a soft feminine trait which is commonly seen on social media platforms. The raised resin circles are a symbol of the suppression of the female anatomy that is used to sell products but is abused when acknowledged publicly. I wanted this piece to be confronting and make audiences question their own attitudes towards the use of modern communication". 

The Students Choice Award goes to Chyan Waiti, again Congratulations

"My theme for Art this year was Superheroes, and throughout the process of my folio work I decided to look more into Pop Art. Pop Art had a similar style to the way superheroes were drawn, painted etc. I used my sister as my model for this artwork called "lemme be your hotline bling", which represents a hipster teen posing for an album cover".
