Literacy Development – the role of Parents 

I was reading an article the other day about Literacy. The strong message emanating from the article was the significant role parent’s play in their child’s Literacy development. The chart below suggests just that. Whilst some of the parental factors are uncontrollable, many strategies can be utilised in the home to promote literacy development. Below are just a few:

2017 Literacy Pic.

  1. Purchase the newspaper and model good practice by reading it yourself as a parent.
  2. Structure dinner, where possible, with family sitting around the table (no electronic devices present) engaging in conversations.
  3. Take your children to the local library and borrow out books
  4. Read your child’s school novels with them. It provides opportunities for dialogue around the novel

Literacy is the cornerstone of academic progress as all subjects require students to be literate and in possession of the ability to express oneself.

Book Week

Coincidentally this week we celebrate Book Week. A further opportunity to encourage and inspire students to read regularly. Reading provides the opportunity for students to expand their vocabulary leading to a greater ability to express oneself, both in the spoken word and in writing. A number of activities were structured this week to inspire a passion in students to read. It was great to observe students getting involved.

SIS Debating

Round 2 of debating was held last week with teams from both the East and West Campus competing. Competition was tough, but congratulations is extended to the intermediate team from the East Campus who have progressed through to the next stage of competition. Well done to all involved.

CYSMA – Shine Conference

Secondary students from across the Diocese descended on the West Campus last Friday for the CYSMA Shine conference. The day commenced with Bishop Pat presiding over mass. The theme of the conference was making connections. CYSMA, which stands for Catholic Schools Youth Ministry Australia, has a vision to inspire and equip our Catholic Schools to respond to the Church’s vision of our school’s becoming centres of the New Evangelisation. At St. Peter’s College this program is open to both Year 10s and 11s as a Religious Education subject and provides opportunities for students to witness in their every day lives faith in the Gospel message. It was wonderful to host this year’s conference and provide for opportunities to dialogue with our neighbouring secondary schools.

Student Leadership

This week our Year 11 students participated in a Leadership training day. In essence, this day was about exploring the ministry of leadership where the core principle of leadership is the care and respect for everybody. Students explored the concept of servant leadership, a style synonymous with leadership within a Catholic community. Characteristics such as: listening, empathy, healing, awareness, foresight, stewardship and a commitment to growth of people, and building a community, are many of the qualities we learn to recognise in servant leadership. Student leaders at St. Peter’s College are encouraged to aspire to be leaders who:

  • Lead and serve the College community through word and action
  • Are trust-worthy, responsible and supportive of the College ethos
  • Encourage, motivate and challenge other members of the College community to work together
  • Honour what has been established and explore and initiate new ways of enhancing the life of the College
  • Are worthy ambassadors for the College in the wider community

This week the whole school community will get to hear and vote for the two School Captains from each campus, a first for St. Peter’s College. The remaining executive student leadership position speeches will be heard by their peers in Year 11 and voting will occur in this forum. The House Leader position speeches will be heard by the members of each house towards the end of next week when voting will take place.

I would like to take the opportunity to acknowledge the wonderful leadership shown by our current student leadership group and I look forward to working alongside next year’s group.

Student Leadership Training Day for Year 11 Students to become the Leaders of 2018

Leadership Day was an eye-opening experience for the Year 11s, and it showed us that we are all eligible to become leaders. Personally, it was a confidence boost for myself and plenty of others, to run for it. It was really inspiring, and the videos were the key to helping us feel confident, as well as Ms Angus' talk!
Kimaya L

On Monday 4th September all Year 11 students were involved in a highly successful seminar day exploring what makes a good leader. The qualities and characteristics of both high profile famous leaders as well as the more humble were unpacked through short films, character strengthens and personality profiling. Students shared experiences and ideas about what makes a good leader. They were challenged to identify both strengths and values within themselves which are characteristic of an emerging leader. The year 12 College Captains and leaders presented a Q & A session in which the Year 11 students were able to gain a deeper insight into the reality of being a College Leader. Students became very aware that to wear and honour the badge and title of College Captain or Leader requires resilience, courage and determination as well as organisational skills in order to maintain their studies and grades. 

One of the highlights was the team bonding activity of who could build the biggest tower from newspapers. It is in fun activities such as this where true leadership skills and qualities begin to emerge. Another great session was the talk presented by Ms Angus on Public Speaking Tips – life skills we all need!

Our Year 11 students will now nominate for the following Leading student roles for 2018.

College Captains, Liturgy, Social Justice, Environment, Arts and Sports Captains. At the Campus assembly this week, students who have nominated for College Captain and Leadership positions will present their speeches to the staff and students. Following the speeches, those shortlisted will be interviewed and final decisions will be made over the following week. There is great energy around this process as we see many students engaging in the process and stepping outside their comfort zone and take a risk to be called on to lead. 

A big thanks to all of the College Captains and Leaders, House Leaders and staff who gave of their time and expertise to deliver to the Year 11 students a fantastic leadership seminar. I also thank the Year 11 students who took up the challenge and participated with energy, good humour and commitment. I wish all candidates well in the preparation for their speeches. 

Restorative Conversations:  

At St. Peter's College one of the many ways we support our students to manage, reflect and own their behaviour whenever a conflict or difficulty arises is through use of Restorative Practice including restorative conversations. Restorative conversation is based on restorative justice principles – justice that “restores” in the wake of inappropriate and harmful behaviour. It is used to help students identify the key elements of the conflict and what they can do to restore both the situation and the relationships involved. It is a respectful conversation that maintains the dignity of people and provides the most learning. Below is a poster from David Vinegrad, a leading expert in Restorative Practice. A simple but effective poster that may assist families to engage in restorative and productive conversations about conflict or difficulties that can occur for families when dealing with the complexity of everyday life, growing up and adolescence.

House in focus: KOLBE

Saint Maximillian Kolbe was a Franciscan Friar who volunteered to die in place of a stranger in a concentration camp of Auschwitz in Germany. When one of the men selected to die called out, my wife, my Children, Kolbe volunteered to take his place.

The foundation of his legacy is imbued in the Kolbe House spirit where students are encouraged to do service and be available to assist all students in their own journey of faith and life.

Kolbe House students are characterised by a deep belonging and desire to assist others and we are very aware of the legacy of St. Maximillian Kolbe. This is reflective in our pledge activity where students were invited to Stand up for and write an appropriate script. Our House feast day held recently was indeed a worthy celebration of St. Maximillian Kolbe’s memory with a touching liturgy and ensuing celebration complete with House luncheon. 

Kolbe House has been led by the tremendously supportive and dedicated team of Mr Greg Furlong (House Leader) and Mr Daniel Green (Assistant House Leader) and Learning Advisors.

Finally enjoy the week, as we look forward to the promise of the warmth and fragrances that characterise the season of Spring.

Cybersafety Week

This week St. Peter’s College is celebrating Cybersafey Week and this began with a trivia event in the Library.  

As an eSmart school, St. Peter’s College is committed to using a framework that guides the introduction of policies, practices and whole-school change processes to support the creation of a cyber safe environment.

In particular, we continue to work at dealing with ongoing issues of cyberbullying.

An act is considered cyberbullying when it involves using the Internet or a phone in a harassing, threatening, or offensive manner. There can be strict criminal penalties for cyber bullying offences.  

There are some important tips for parents to counter cyberbullying at home:

  • Have an open two way conversation with your children about the risks
  • Try to get your kids to share their profiles and blogs with you
  • Establish some general rules: Set time limits on when they can go online and guidelines on what sites they can and can’t visit
  • Consider requiring Internet use in a high-traffic place in your home
  • Parents should be careful not to react when the kids tell them something bad – otherwise run the risk of scaring them from talking to them next time
  • Invest in a solution that offers parental controls like Home Network Security.

Students are always encouraged to speak to a parent, teacher or adult they trust if something makes them feel uncomfortable online or on a mobile phone.

They can also contact:

Year 11 Student Leadership Day

On Monday, the Pastoral Leader, Miss McKenna and House Leaders ran an excellent Student Leadership Day for our current Year 11 students in preparation for 2018. After an opening prayer organised by Miss Joyce, students examined the servant model of leadership as taught by Jesus and practised by St. Peter.

Other sessions that students experienced included different leadership styles, leadership qualities, personality types and leadership, group dynamics and a team building activity.  

The day finished with a panel of this year’s student leaders speaking about their roles and with Mr Stretch giving some tips on speeches. Those applying for College Captain will present their speeches at the Campus Assembly on Thursday to all students and Years 7-11 students will be able to vote for their leaders for the first time.

Other student leader executive roles (Sports Captains, Arts Captain, Environment Captain, Liturgy Captain and Social Justice Captain) will be voted on by the Year 11 cohort only after speeches prior to the assembly. Students will then be interviewed for the roles next week.

House Captains are required to apply this week for their role and will then present speeches on Tuesday, 19 September.

House Chess Final

The game of chess which you would normally think is played indoors and in warmth was moved to the Central Courtyard on Tuesday for the battle of champions.

The Grand Final was between Augustine’s Anthony Ouch and Romero’s Darcy Paulka. The battle for third was between Avila’s Finlay Moore and Marian’s Jason Chan, who is only in Year 7. It was a tough battle with Avila narrowly defeating Marian in the dying seconds of the game.

The battle between Augustine and Romero was a stalemate with both Anthony and Darcy struggling to get the upper hand.

It was truly amazing chess and it is no wonder that these students are now representing the school at a state level.

Well done to Mr O’Hara on organising a great competition and creating a wonderful atmosphere of celebration with music, commentary and even a BBQ lunch through the VCAL students.

McGuigan Shield Competition

There are still two more house activities that could yet see some movement on the house ladder.

Marian House is running their spelling bee this week and then Augustine House is revamping their hungry hippo competition which looks to be an upscale version of the actual game. Should be a lot of fun.

A reminder that the winning house will enjoy an activity off campus which will has been organised for the first day of Term 4 on Tuesday, 10 October. Rush HQ in Rowville has been booked and it promises to be a great celebration for the House that goes.

Second place winners will enjoy a pizza lunch at the College.

The current ladder is as follows.

VCAL Book Launch

Year 12 St. Peter’s College VCAL students recently launched their published books to students from St. Therese’s Primary School. The self-written and published books were part of their Sustainable Development Goals project for Literacy. 

The Sustainable Development Goals were developed in 2016 when the United Nations (UN) adapted the original Millennium Goals from 2000 to develop a new sustainable development agenda. There are 17 Sustainable Goals in total, but the primary focus across all the goals is to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all worldwide. 

As part of the project, the St. Peter’s College VCAL students had to research the history of the Sustainable Development Goals and select one goal as an area of focus. Students then began planning a story focussed on the chosen goal. The stories and drawings were all original ideas created by the VCAL students.

Parent Teacher Interviews

Year 7- 11 Parent Teacher Interview bookings are now open to parents. Please take the time to book early as places fill fast.

Interviews will be conducted from 9.00am until 8.30pm on Wednesday 13th September.

Meaningful Questions You Should Ask Your Child's Teacher this Parent Teacher Interview

For students, the ultimate support system is not an expert teacher, but an informed and supportive family. The more informed a family is, the more seamlessly they'll connect to so many other edu-constructs, from extracurricular activities and tutoring to reading programs and school-related events

In pursuit of that transparency, below are some questions to better clarify what's happening in the classroom, and then help you decide on the kind of non-superficial actions you can perform at home to truly support the learning of your child. 

  • How will you respond if or when my child struggles in class?
  • What are the most important and complex (content-related) ideas my child needs to understand by the end of the year?
  • What can I do to support literacy in my home?
  • What kinds of questions do you suggest that I ask my children on a daily basis about your class?
  • How exactly is learning personalized in your classroom? In the school?
  • Is there technology you'd recommend that can help support my child in self-directed learning?
  • What are the most common barriers you see to academic progress in your classroom?
  • What am I not asking but should be?

‘Making Connections’ at the SHINE Youth Gathering

Last Friday, St. Peter’s College had the privilege of hosting the annual SHINE Youth conference which saw students from across the Sale Diocese come together to take part in Mass, listen to presentations and engage in workshops throughout the day.

The theme for the Conference was ‘Making Connections’.

The day started with Mass presided over by Bishop Patrick. As well as Bishop Pat, members of the CSYMA Youth Ministry Team came down from Canberra to help lead the day. This team consists of young people who work actively in their communities. Hearing from both Bishop Pat and the CSYMA Youth Ministry Team early in the day helped to ground students in the theme ‘Making Connections’.

For the rest of the day students moved between different workshops. These workshops were designed to allow students the opportunity to explore different aspects of their personal faith, challenge them to put themselves out there and get them to explore the kind of leader they might like to be.

The final session brought everyone together and encouraged them to reflect on what they had taken from the day. This was also where the artwork which had been produced by two students attending the conference was revealed.

The artwork, painted over the course of the day, represented the ‘vibe’ of the Conference from the participants’ perspective. 

Overall, the day was a great experience for our students who are actively engaged in Youth Ministry to meet up with and share ideas with like-minded students from other schools. 

Students who are interested in being part of Youth Ministry at St. Peter’s College should speak to their RE teacher, Mr Nash, Mr Hampson (East Campus) or Miss Joyce (West Campus) about the different pathways open to them.

Mind Matters @ St. Peter's College

Mind Matters in Action.

Maximise Your Marks…some ideas from Student Welfare.

Often in student welfare we have students speak to us about wanting to maximize their marks here at school.

We discuss tips and ideas about how they can channel their learning styles into strategies to help them perform better here at St. Peter's College. 

Andrew Fuller is a leading Melbourne psychologist who works specifically to enhance resilience in adolescents so his advice on how to maximise learning is practical and easy to follow.  

Admittedly, this will probably re-iterate much of what your teachers have been telling students but a second “voice” can be helpful.

If you would like to have a conversation with your son or daughter about their study habits here are some of Andrew Fuller's tips to get the conversation started.

Their debate topics were as follows.

  • “That shark nets should be introduced in all waters in populated areas in Australia.”
  • “That there should be a state tax to provide for the homeless.”
  • “That there should be a treaty between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.”

The senior students who attended were Nyakua Wunbil, Nyardwich Ruei, Sarah Mohammed, Jag Yen Tiang and Amuor Maler. The team won one of the two debates, and the best speaker for one debate was Jag Yen Tiang, with Sarah Mohammed the best speaker for the other debate.
The Junior team was represented by Sam Imperial, Elizabeth Sabelino, and Madysyn Pukovski. They lost by a narrow margin, and, Madysyn Pukovski was the best speaker for one of the debates. Both Intermediate Teams did very well, with Muko Besa, Tham Ndebele, and Mathew Lopez in Intermediate Team 2.
