School Fees

There has been much commentary in the media over a significant time-period now about Gonski 2.0 and the impact this will have on the funding of the Catholic sector. There is no doubt that this decision will have an impact on Catholic schools and the challenge is now about how we as a sector, and,  St. Peter’s College rise up to meet that challenge. I can assure parents of one thing, we will be working tirelessly to ensure the learning programs on offer continue to provide students with a first-class, innovative and engaging 21st century learning experience. The College Board met two weeks ago and approved a fee increase of 4.5%. This has subsequently been communicated to you in the  2018 Fee Letter distributed recently. I am very mindful of the impact an increase in school fees might have on our families. Many Catholic schools are suggesting a fee increase of between 6 and 10%. Our rise in fees, an increase of 4.5%, reflects the increase in education costs as expressed in the education component of the consumer price index (CPI). We believe this rise to be justified to ensure the continued education provision for all St. Peter’s College students. 

Headstart Begins

Headstart is just that a head start on next year’s academic year. Gone are the end of year movies and “free time”. It is instead a stimulating and period of engaging work program. Students for the most part will have their 2018 teachers and all will be in their 2018 class groups. One of the advantages of this program is that any anxieties around who I might have and who is going to be in my class are dissolved. For our senior students the ability to commence their VCE/VCAL program early and ensure any holiday homework is relevant are only two of many advantages. The success of last year’s Headstart program was predicated on the following principles:

  1. A stimulated and engaging learning program
  2. A purposeful learning program
  3. Minimal disruptions from learning
  4. The ability to iron out all of the little issues synonymous with the commencement of the school year thus ensuring a smooth beginning to the 2018 academic year.

The feedback from parents to last year’s program was very positive. A common reflection being that their children were excited about a new beginning. I wish everyone the very best as they embark on Headstart 2.0 and I look forward to witnessing the launch of Schoolbox in a systematic way as a part of this year’s headstart program.

The Yr 9 Learning Centre is Open for Business – East Campus

Over the past 9 months, a large additional building has slowly been built. For our Year 9 students who commenced their learning program this week, that meant entering into a new building and a new world of learning. Designed to deliver a different style of learning, the Year 9 building provides for all learners and opens up endless opportunities for students as individuals or collaboratively with others, to extend themselves in their learning. Built around the “the 4 C’s, Collaboration, Communication, Critical thinking and Creativity, students will be engaged in new ways of learning. I challenge (another C word) both staff and students to not limit the learning in anyway within this new and innovative program and to reach for the stars. In taking on this challenge the hope is that students will come to realise that learning has no end point it only opens up more learning and more challenge. We look forward into the future to seeing this new space alive with learning.

Solomon Islands

Our group of 11 students and two staff members head off to our annual pilgrimage to the Solomon Islands. This program was established as an alternative to schoolies, it also provides opportunities for the students to give back something to a group who require our support. A number of events and activities are scheduled for the group this year. One highlight will be when the group are able to present their fund-raising cheque to support the work of the staff at the Bishop Epalle School.

Over the past number of years the money raised by the St. Peter’s College has been collected to finance a new building which will house the staffroom, library and classrooms for IT. This building, to be known as St. Peter’s Building, is to be blessed and officially opened by the Archbishop whilst the group is on the island this year. As such I will be making a flying visit to the Solomon Islands for the formalities, together with two of the pioneering staff who helped set-up the program, Roger and April Hampson. I look forward to be able to report back to you in a week’s time about the experience.

Enjoy the week ahead

Year 9 Camp 2017: Fun in the sun.

The Year 9 Camp is always a great adventure and experience for our students and staff. The weather has in the past been the biggest challenge. However this year the sun was certainly shinning as the buses pulled away. From all reports the weather remained reasonable allowing all of the varied activities to take place. Tired as they were, both staff and students returned happy, confident and more skilled in numerous water activities. I would like to thank the students for the wonderful way they conducted themselves maintaining the great reputation of our College. To all of the staff that attended a huge thank you, this event will truly be one of the most memorable for our students. 

Student reflections:

Last week the Year 9s went to Anglesea for a surf camp. The weather was pretty good. The actives were really cool, we did surfing, kayaking/surfing kayaking, paddle boarding, a surf carnival and a journey challenge. We also went on night walks to really pretty nice places. We also had a dance as well, which we were pretty tired by the end of the night. All in all, the camp was pretty good. Lots of laughs. And we had some really good teachers that went on it too. Maddy Johns

All of the activities we did where great and every one of them was a new experience. The instructors for the activities had a lot of energy and made all the activities a fun team experience. Even though it rained in on the second day I still enjoyed camp because there was so much things you could do to test yourself and come out of your comfort zone. Cian O’Riordan

Last week we went to Anglesea for a surfing camp. The activities consisted of Surfing, Canoeing, River Kayaking, Ocean Kayaking, Paddle boarding, Surf carnival and Journey challenge. The weather was pretty good for most of the 4 days. We went on night walks around the river and the beach, participated in a social dance and a talent quest. I think the best part of camp was surfing. I enjoyed the 4 days at Anglesea. Kay Bannan

The Year 9 Learning Centre is open for Learning!

There was great excitement on Tuesday has the Year 9 Learning Centre was finally opened. The ceremonial cutting of the ribbon signalled the end to a long journey to create the vision and the actual space that would house this most innovative learning environment and program for St. Peter's College. Whilst there are still a few cosmetic touch ups to do, the centre was alive and active with students and the Year 9 teaching team exploring the space, and fully action the pedagogy of active learning. I have challenged this group of students to strive for academic excellence and to become outstanding servant leaders. For they are the inaugural group to use this centre and to experience the program. To the team and the Year 9 students – good luck, enjoy and excel.

The building is handed over to the students to make the commitment of excellence by cutting the ribbon to enter the Year 9 Learning Centre.

East Campus LEC Year 7 2018 Induction Morning-Students 

A very warm welcome was extended to our new Year 7 students and their parents as they took part in an induction morning to support their entry into the College. The morning was run by the Learning Enhancement Centre, lead by Ms Margaret Anthony. The morning enabled both students and parents the opportunity to meet the LEC team, Mrs Barb Ellwood, Mrs Gab Windley and Mr Innocent Munyantwali. Various fun activities were enjoyed by the students including a school tour. The highlight of the morning was certainly the charming, informative and humorous speech and visual presentation from our Year 12 student Daniel Trew. Daniel was able to offer our new students great insight into the role of the LEC and how each student can feel confident in the support they will receive throughout their time at St. Peter's College.

My thanks go to all of the LEC especially Ms Stacey Webb who was an integral part of the preparations that made the day so successful. A huge thank you to Daniel for giving of his time for this wonderful morning. 

Helping our young people to find their spark.

This week has brought us to new beginnings with Headstart 2018, the arrival of new students and the celebration of the opening of the new Year 9 Learning Centre and its Program.

It is a great time of year to reflect on how we as teachers and parents and our students/children have grown, changed and dealt with the challenges and successes that we have faced throughout the year. Such personal reflection allows us to become more like St Peter, by realising that we will not always get things right but instead be considered in our thoughts and following our school theme for this year; after much debate, we stand up and continue our journey as committed members of our community as servant leaders.  Maintaining a passion and energy for continuing this journey can be difficult for all us especially young people if they have not found something that truly inspires, excites or challenges them. But just how do we help them find this passion, this challenge, and what are the real benefits of experiences?

Please click here to read an extract from the Family Peace Foundation which presents a very simple concept of investing time and energy to support our young people to find their spark, their passion, their challenge which will support motivation and encourages them to strive to be the best they can. We moved our year 9 students into a state of the Art innovative learning centre to do exactly that – help them to find their spark that will ignite their passion to want to learn and strive for excellence. Headstart, New Year 9 program, new school for some students and the sunshine are a great sparks for us to use to support our young people find and develop their spark for learning, life and community.

I wish everyone a productive and happy week.

Positive Education

Over the past 2 years, St. Peter’s College has used the MindMatters Framework to help educate our staff in the knowledge of mental health and wellbeing and explore the needs in our College and possible future directions. Many parents may recall doing a survey in 2016 that helped us gather the data to inform our considered response. One of the directions that has become evident to us is the implementation of a whole school approach to positive education.  

Positive education brings the science of Positive Psychology with the best practice in teaching to encourage individuals and school communities to flourish or thrive. To thrive is to not only feel good about yourself but to do good for others. These are core gospel values for us in our Catholic school. 

2017 positive psychology 01

Positive Psychology aims to help with improving our wellbeing. Through rigorous scientific investigation, positive psychology is helping us determine the conditions that contribute to helping people thrive and flourish (Seligman, 2002). To help people to thrive, the founder of positive psychology, Martin Seligman identified five domains in what has become known as the PERMA model:

  • positive emotions, 
  • engagement, 
  • relationships, 
  • meaning, and 
  • accomplishment 

This is an approach that you will hear more about as we implement this model, with St Peter’s characteristics, in our pastoral program and through Tutor Groups.

With the launch of Head Start this week, we gathered our Year 11 and 12 (and accelerated Year 10) students in the hall to talk about the requirements of VCAL and VCE.  Of particular interest was the presentation that our new Senior Years Curriculum Leader, Ms Louise Mansfield, made concerning the recent discoveries of brain science. The rewiring of the teenage brain makes it all the more important to help establish the specific skills that Positive Education focuses upon. These skills include strengthening relationships, building positive emotions, enhancing personal resilience, promoting mindfulness and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.

Ms Mansfield pointed our students to their new Student Record Book (SRB) as a new means to support them in their endeavours this year.  The SRBs have had a lot of the traditional information moved to Schoolbox. Electronic access to this material makes a lot more sense than multiple paper copies of policies, and information. However, the more frequently accessed information is still in hardcopy and the Student Representative Council made it clear to us that students still wanted the student planner section to write in homework, assignments, due dates and undoubtedly friends’ birthdays!

However, what is new to the SRB is the Wellbeing Tracker and Daily Reflections. The St. Peter’s College Record Book remains a vital means of communication between the school and the student’s home. However, in addition to the traditional role of recording homework, assignments, school-related dates and notes from staff or parents it does the following:

  • wellbeing tracker to help students monitor their exercise, sleep, diet and mindfulness
  • daily reflections designed to helps students explore gratitude and empathy

I remind parents to look at the new SRB and join us in encouraging your child to do at least 20 minutes of exercise each day, to get the recommended 9 ¼ hours each night, to eat healthily and practice mindfulness. They will also be challenged to practice gratitude and empathy.  We will explore these ideas with your child throughout the coming year.  We invite you to check on their progress in the SRB and I will explore more about these concepts via this newsletter.

McGuigan Shield House Competition

The second competition for the McGuigan Shield begins on Wednesday with the Avila House Mixed Basketball Competition played at lunchtime.  Avila has moved away from their trivia competition and the House Forum has elected to get sporty. This appears to have been well received by the many keen basketballers in the school and we look forward to this inaugural competition.

The following table gives the timeline for the matches between the various houses.

Care Monkey

2017 care monkey

St. Peter’s College families will have received an email recently asking them to create a profile on Care Monkey. This will be a priority for parents as from 2018 we will be using this company to communicate with parents about camps, retreats, excursions and various other events or activities at the school. It is therefore important that parents update any student medical details for each of their children at St Peter’s in the Care Monkey profile.  It will also be important for all parents to have up to date email details.

Because only one email address can be used for a Care Monkey profile it is important that the primary caregiver should be responsible for the profile.  If the email has been sent to a parent or guardian who families would prefer not to set up the Care Monkey profile, then it is important that you contact the school to inform us of the preferred email address. Please submit paperwork for this change as this may impact on the address that other correspondence from the school will go such as finance.

Parents of current Year 11 students will need to use the Care Monkey e-Form to order the 2018 Year 12 top. This will be the only way in which these tops can be ordered and payment will be online.  We encourage parents to set up their Care Monkey profile as orders for these tops will only be possible up until Thursday, 16 November. These tops can only be worn by Year 12 students at school during Term 4 or when Sports Uniform is permitted to be worn (eg. Certain excursions) or at the following times in 2018:

Subject Changes 

Already this week I have received a number of emails from students asking for a subject change.

As was explained during our subject selection process - Subjects, Staffing and Recruitment and the Timetable are all based on student subject selection.

Careful selection is therefore vital!

At this late stage, no changes are possible for Years 7- 10 students.

Year 11 and 12 students who have an extra ordinary reason for change should see their House Leader to explain the change of subject requirements. Again, not all changes are guaranteed and will be actioned no later than Week 2 of Headstart.

Thank you for your understanding of this complex process.

College Captains meet Bishop Pat

Our College Captains met Bishop Pat this week at Warragul. Student leaders from the Colleges in the Archdiocese for Sale attended the day.
The day started with an icebreaker activity that allowed students to get to know each other. This was followed by a  short workshop.

Students from each College then made a presentation on the key issues that face students at their College. The presentations varied from College to College. Our students presented a Powerpoint and video of students from Years 7-12 that demonstrated the key issues /pressures facing students today.
In viewing the presentations it was interesting to note the variety of pressures facing our students across the Archdiocese. Colleges from the far east of the state expressed the pressures of leaving home to study being away from family, knowing parents would still have to financially support them and the fact that part-time jobs were hard to get in regional Victoria.This was a bit of a wake-up call for our students who had never thought about these pressures before. Bishop Pat listened attentively to the presentations and at the end spoke to the group with sincere empathy for the presentations. He also said he was looking forward to 2018, the Year of Youth that would be celebrated across Australia and he hoped that those traveling to Sydney  for the ACYF would make the most of the opportunity

Students had the time to meet other leaders over lunch and become Facebook friends so thus developing a network of friends amongst leaders at other Colleges to share ideas as the year progressed.

After lunch students met with Bishop Pat. He was keen as usual to field questions from the students.Teachers did not attend this session but feedback from our students was that he was friendly and down to earth.

From a teacher's perspective, it was a great day to share with our College leaders.They are young, full of energy, they want to make our College a better place for all and know the meaning of service leadership as exemplified by St. Peter.
