Welcome back to the final school term for 2018. I hope all students have had an enjoyable and restful break (with some revision and preparation for the new term) and are looking forward to finishing the year off on an excellent note.
The Interim-semester Two Reports and follow-up Parent/Student/Teacher meetings held at the end of last term will have helped identify and affirm good progress to date, provided a valuable opportunity to discuss areas of concern and helped set some directions for a productive term ahead.
The Yr 12 VCE students sat their practice exams during the second week of the holidays. Acting Deputy Principal, Mrs Oliver reported that she was very pleased overall with the way the students approached this very important assessment preparation.
Three recent international student trips
All three groups returned safely during the holidays. All reports to date indicate the trips went very well. I thank the staff involved and commend the students who were able to participate on the very positive comments I received about their enthusiastic and cooperative approach.
Italian Study Tour - Seventeen Years 10 & 11 Italian class students travelled with three teachers to Italy. They visited Rome, Pompei, Sorrento, Mensanello, Florence, Bologna and Venice before returning home after a wonderful experience over 20 days. The students were involved in a homestay program for six days of the trip.
Thank you to Mr Francesco Melli for leading this trip.
Indonesian Study Tour - Twenty-two students, four staff members and one alumnus (teacher assistant) enjoyed a 13-day Langauge and Cultural Immersion trip to Indonesia.
Many thanks to Ms Julia Hall (LOTE Learning Area Leader) for all she has done towards the planning of the trip
East Timor Immersion Trip - Twenty Years 10 & 11 students travelled with two staff members and a Destination Dreaming Leader to Dili and the Arturo Island.
Thank you to Mrs Anna Oliver for leading this trip.
Final week for Year 12s
All parents of Year 12 students will receive a letter from me early next week to communicate some of our expectations and hopes and the plans in place at this stage to help facilitate a positive and smooth finish. (Extra copies are available from our office.) It is obviously very important that the Year 12s remain as focused as possible on their studies right through to the last exam. A lot depends on their ability to apply themselves well during this time. I have made it very clear about our expectations for a positive finish by the senior students on their ‘last day,’ Tuesday 23rd October.
Normal timetabled classes for the Year 12 students will cease on Monday 22nd October 2018. The next day, Tuesday 23rd October, will be the Yr 12 ‘Celebration Day.’ The VCE written exam period starts on Wednesday 31st October 2018 with the English exam (for LOTE Oral, Drama & Music Performance exam times please check with the subject teacher, some of these examinations have already started.) Visit the following website for the VCE exam timetable:
After Tuesday 23rd October 2018, Year 12 teachers will be available during normal class time and by appointment out of class time until the exam for their particular subject. Teachers will discuss these arrangements with their students.
A number of special activities are planned over the “last week” to help make this a special and memorable time for the students and parents. In particular, I remind parents of Year 12 students and friends of the College about the Year 12 Mass at the College Gym on Thursday 18th October 2018 (7:00 pm) and the Full School Assembly on Monday 22nd October (report to the office at 10.30am for a 10:45 am start.) It is expected that all Yr 12 students and their families will attend the special Mass on the 18th October and you would be most welcome to attend the assembly.
I wish our Year 12 students and their families a special and memorable time during the last phase of their secondary school journey.
Next Full School Assembly
All Parents are warmly invited to attend this term’s assembly on Monday 22nd October 2018. I ask you to please report to the office at 10:30 am so you can be allocated a seat. The main focus of the assembly will be, as in past years, the school’s farewell to the Year 12 students.
Wednesday 24th October 2018 – normal classes
Please note that this day is not a holiday for our students – classes will run as normal. As you are aware, this is the day of the annual “Geelong Cup.” Some schools are taking this day as a holiday; we are not as we take Melbourne Cup day instead (together with the day before.)
As some schools are taking Geelong Cup off, there was a question over what school buses will run on this day. The Region’s School Bus Coordinator has informed our Bus Coordinator that buses will run on this day for our students. I would suggest that students should check with their driver just prior to the day, particularly those on buses that carry students from other schools, in case there are any special arrangements being made due to less students travelling on this day.
Opening of the Geelong Tech School
Very positive news for secondary education in the Geelong region with the official opening of the Geelong Tech School on Tuesday. Deputy Premier and Minister for Education, James Merlino and Minister for Training and Skills, Gayle Tierney opened the state-of-the-art Geelong Tech School, the eighth of 10 to open under the State Government’s Tech School initiative.
At the opening, Mr Merlino said, “We need students to be ready for the jobs of the future and that’s why we’re investing in Tech Schools – so they can get the hands-on learning with technology they need. The Geelong Tech School will form an important link between our schools, TAFEs, universities and industry.”
One of our Year 11 Maths/Science students, Sophie Skuza had the honour of being co-Master of Ceremonies for the Opening. Sophie did a tremendous job. It was great to see Sophie along with many other students from a variety of Geelong schools being involved in the celebration and promotion of this new facility.
Located at The Gordon Institute’s Geelong campus, the Tech School will give Geelong’s secondary schools access to the latest technology and programs that will support schools to better equip students with the skills they need to succeed in the jobs of the future.
At the new Geelong Tech School, there are purpose-built spaces for students to collaborate, practice design thinking and participate in high-level problem solving, as well as design spaces where students get hands-on experience using specialised high-tech STEM equipment.
Geelong Tech School programs will be offered free to local students and will align with local industries most in need of skilled workers, including healthcare and social assistance, transport, defence and construction technologies and professional, scientific and technical services.
The Geelong Tech School has a web page on The Gordon website and can be viewed at http://www.thegordon.edu.au/future-students/gts
At Saint Ignatius College, we are considering how we can use the facilities of the Tech School to enhance our student’s STEM skills. I represent the Geelong Catholic Secondary College Principals on the Committee of Management of the Tech School. One of our Science Teachers, Mr Michael Brown, is a member of the Curriculum Committee. Planning is underway for how our students’ learning in the STEM area could be enhanced by accessing the Tech School.
One example that is currently being developed as a trial program involves two of our Yr 8 DigiTech classes. Mr Brown is working with Barwon Water and the Geelong Tech School to design a project that requires robot design and construction to solve a real-life problem such as the unblocking of a drainage pipe. The two classes will be involved in this pilot program during this term. Also in term 4, all Year 7 students will undertake a day excursion to visit the new Tech School as part of their DigiTech subject. We look forward to further developing our involvement with the Geelong Tech School for next year.

As we return to the College for the final time in 2018 we enter our final journey for the year. For some it is the last part of a six year journey from which they will embark on new academic or employment ‘journeys’ as they finish their final year. For a third of our Year 9 students their camp experience will include journeys with that will challenge them physically and mentally as they rock climb and hike around the Grampians.
The other groups will also be challenged as they kayak and mountain bike across the state. At the College we also think about staff members Alicia Deak and Caleb Ryan as they complete a Camino across Spain. Journeys are often more than getting from one place to another. Often journeys challenge us and we grow because of this experience. When this happens we have completed a pilgrimage.
Pilgrimages have been a central component of faith for people over many thousands of years. Pilgrims generally travel light, pray often, reflect upon life and God, have a destination that offers a deeper connection with God and an open heart. Pilgrimages allow people to escape the ordinary and experience the extraordinary.
Although we may not all be able to participate in the pilgrimages at this time we can engage in pilgrimage in our daily life and in doing so experience a closer relationship and understanding of God.
D.I.Y. Pilgrimage Guide
1. Get outside – make a decision to break out and experience the beautiful gift of nature that we are so fortunate to have. You might head to a beach, a dedicated path or simply walk out the door and keep walking.
2. Get moving – experiencing movement through activity brings us to a deeper awareness of the magnificence of our bodies. This perfection is often something that we overlook. However, as God knitted you together in your mothers womb (Psalm 139:13), He was well aware of the complexity and perfection needed so that your body might do all that is required.
3. Clear your mind – make an attempt to remove distraction. You will find that this will take some effort. We are so ‘busy’ that we do not often stop. But to truly seek God we need to ‘be still’ (Psalm 46:10) and take time to listen for the movements of God in and around us.
4. Be open-minded – As you journey try to do away with what you think God will ‘be’. You may find that God offers himself in a moment of beauty, such as a sunset. He may offer himself as that small inner voice or movement that offers a connection or insight through your conscience. He may simply offer you peace.
5. Reflect – When your journey ends, whether it is long or short, take the time to reflect and offer thanks. In doing so you make good your relationship with God and will be encouraged to journey again.
St Ignatius of Loyola was a great pilgrim. After his recuperation he traveled across Spain to Manresa. This journey changed him and opened his heart to God. This journey changed his inner nature, the exclusion of what was ordinary and a commitment to seeking God changed Ignatius’ outlook and allowed God to be better witnessed.
At the conclusion of his pilgrimage across Spain, he spent nine months at Manresa where he committed himself completely to seeking God. Forsaking everything else, he was able to ‘find God’ and most significantly personally experience God. During this time he reflected upon his experiences deeply and recorded ‘The Spiritual Exercises’, which we continue to practice today.
I believe his most profound understanding from this period was Ignatius’ understanding of ‘God in all things’. With this thought in mind we are inspired to look at all we encounter with the expectation that we will see God. This leads us to bring peace to all whom we meet and enables us to live every moment in silent but prodigious prayer.
I hope that this week you might be inspired to enter into a DIY pilgrimage of your own.
Yours in Christ,
Brendan Nicholls Liturgy Coordinator
Twenty-two Indonesian language students from Years 10 and 11 joined four staff (Ms Julia Hall, Mr Joe McLean, Ms Elana Cole and Mrs Caroline Edmonds) to explore Jakarta and North Sumatra. The trip began in Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta, where we explored sites of national importance, including MONAS (Monumen Nasional), Istiqlal Mosque and the state Cathedral, as well as one of the cities massive and impressive shopping malls.
As we slowly grew acclimatised to the hot and humid weather, we them embarked on the epic road trip section of the trip. Flying into Medan in North Sumatra, we headed down to Bukit Lawang, in the Gunung Leuser National Park, where we spent a day in the jungle exploring and looking for orangutans. We were lucky enough to find several, including a big male and several females with their adorable babies.
From Bukit Lawang we also visited Tangkahan. Originally a logging village, when the locals realised the damage being done, they collectively decided to stop illegal logging and transform the area into a self-sustained ecotourism destination. It’s now home to several rehabilitated adult Sumatran elephants and their small calves. By joining the elephants in their morning bathing, we were very pleased to support the local initiative, which also helps to safeguard the national park to protect it from encroachment. And how many people can say they’ve had an elephant wash them back!
We then powered on to the shores of Lake Toba, a natural lake occupying the caldera of a supervolcano. Samosir (the island that happens to be bigger than Singapore) occupies the middle of Lake Toba, and we took to a boat to explore the villages of Ambarita (featuring ancient megalithic furniture and catchy Toba Batak dancing) and Tomok (with traditional tombs combining Christian and animistic beliefs).
The group made lots of new friends everywhere they went and seized every opportunity to build their language skills. Well done to all students involved:
William Bothe, Lucy Carpenter, Madeleine Crothers, Maeve Dungey, Tex Hallam, Jasmine Hay, Bella Harry, Emily Henry, Kaidyn Henry, Guy Herbert, Lucy Irving, Luke Lawson, Dana Lourie, Sean Malone, Mikayla Michels, Ruby Moreland, Nikita Page, Andrew Power, Hannah Scott, Thomas Smith, Maggie Van Bakkum and Natalia Wilcox
Ms Julia Hall Learning Area Leader - Languages
What the students had to say:
Wow! What an experience. Indonesia is an amazing country with a vast amount of opportunities. We trekked for orangutans in the Sumatran jungle, visited the largest mosque in Southeast Asia, washed and fed fruit to elephants in a river, scaled a colossal Jakarta mall, donated a cheque to conservation organisations while conversing with native speakers throughout. I am grateful to the College for allowing these opportunities to take place as well as to Ms. Edmonds, Bu Cole and Mr. McLean for accompanying us on this journey and for their great care of us. I am especially thankful to Bu Hall for her organisation, humour and enthusiasm, making the trip a highly memorable experience.
That it was the best trip, and that you don't expect everyone to be so welcoming but the locals are so friendly and lovely that they make you feel safe and welcome.
Maggie Van Bakkum
It was incredible to go to so many different places with in 12 days. It was awesome to visit the country that I have been learning the language of for 5 years.
After being lucky enough to visit Indonesia through the school's Indonesian program, I feel as if my language skills have improved immensely and I have also developed new friendships and perspectives on different cultures as a whole.
During the holidays, 17 students from Years 10 and 11 were given the opportunity to travel to Italy on an enjoyable and insightful tour across the nation. The trip combined elements of both tourism and firsthand cultural experience, through visits to popular and renowned destinations, as well as a one-week homestay which allowed the students to become thoroughly immersed in authentic Italian lifestyle.
Some of the well-known places students were privileged enough to visit included: the Colosseum, the Vatican, Pompeii, the Catacombs (a secret Christian underground cemetery), the Island of Capri and many more! Also, the students participated in activities such as the Gladiator school, Gondola rides and cooking course in the Beautiful Villa Sabolini (Tuscany), Venetian mask making class. This tour allowed us students to gain valuable knowledge about the Italian culture and enhance our language skills.
Sean Neylan (Year 11 Italian) and Lauren McCleland (Year 10 Italian) 10-10-2018
Here a few comments from the students:
Callum: “My favourite part of the trip was the homestay in Prato, because I was able to immerse myself in an authentic experience with Italian culture regarding school, food, youth culture and family life.”
Anthony: "The Italian Trip is probably one of my best school experiences and I think that all students who have the opportunity to go on this trip should go on this trip. Though I didn’t have a favourite destination, I really enjoyed travelling all over Italy with all the students and teachers."
Bianca: "The SICG Italian Trip that took place during the third term holidays was honestly my favourite experience of high school. Although I have never travelled overseas, Italy was honestly the best place to experience my first time travelling. The vast, diverse foods, culture and most importantly the people will always be remembered, Italy will be missed but the memories will never ever be forgotten. I loved how I got to experience going to an Italian school and making new friends from the trip and in Italy, that I will always have contact with. I also loved the fact that I got to practise my language skills and gradually improve them."
Ruby: "The Italian Trip was honestly one of the most rewarding experiences that I’ve had. Having never been to Europe before, and Italy being a place that I was keen to visit I was extremely excited to go on this trip. The trip was one of the most amazing and diverse experiences that I’ve ever had: experiencing the different culture and diverse regional landscape, architecture and food has been priceless and I am very lucky I could be part of it!"
A proud moment for Brent - a proud moment for the College
My name is Brent Keast, I am currently studying in Year 12 and lucky enough to be the first recipient of the Platinum Loyola Award, which I received at the Year 12 Assembly on Thursday 6th September. From the day I received my first Loyola Award and Bronze Loyola Star Award I had the ambition of getting the Platinum Loyola Award. It got to this year and I had thought my luck had run out until I received my second Gold Loyola Award, as soon as possible I went to see Gail Lambert one of the Deputy Principal’s Secretaries and learnt that I only had five Loyola Awards to go. For the following weeks I worked hard to get these five Loyola Awards by doing various activities for the College.
For those that are not familiar or are wondering what the Platinum Loyola Award is and how to get it, hopefully the following can explain it for you.
To clarify there is a difference between Academic Endeavour and Academic Excellence, you do not have to be an A student to achieve Academic Endeavour, as long as you try your hardest in your school work you could receive one from your teachers.
For me, receiving the Loyola Awards was not my intention, however, over the years I have learnt a great deal of skills especially organisational and communication skills with other students and teachers of the College.
For the past few years I have become attached to Saint Ignatius’ Prayer for Generosity.
The specific verses that are significant to me are:
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labour and not to seek reward.
This prayer to me expresses the need to help those in need no matter who they are or what the job is and not to expect or receive any sort of reward. This belief also continues throughout my leadership within and outside the College. This kind of leadership I think is very important, as Saint Ignatius was very committed to serving others and this is to why he was one of the first leaders of a Religious Order to set up missionaries.
This year I have had the delight to be a part of our Arrupe Leaders. In this role I have aligned myself with the Environment Committee, and have contributed to multiple events throughout the year, a significant event this term has been the planting of succulents to make a garden wall in the Year 9 area. Aside from this, I have also participated in other various events additional to the Environment Committee, such as assisting Ms. Meagan Canaway and Mrs. Caroline Edmonds in a Year 7 Homeroom in Health and Maths respectively. The role has it challenges however the benefits that come from it well and truly overcome these challenges.
For the students of the College I commend you on your contributions to the school and wider communities and I further encourage those that have not taken up the opportunity to be involved in our tremendous College to do so. You could simply start tomorrow, maybe next week, but do not lose time to take up these opportunities. I urge all of you to take these opportunities and to continue to serve your College and wider communities.
I want to thank Saint Ignatius College for giving me a path in life and for giving me so many opportunities throughout the time that I have been here.

Late in term three several students attended the launch of Indigenous Literacy Day at Federation Square, Melbourne. Indigenous Literacy Day is a national celebration of Indigenous culture, stories, language and literacy.
Heidi Bakker (Year 10 student) was chosen as one of ten Indigenous Literacy Foundation ambassadors from across Australia. In attending we were able to support Heidi and the foundation in their pursuit of closing the gap in indigenous literacy standards.
More information can be found at: https://www.indigenousliteracyfoundation.org.au/what-is-indigenous-literacy
Heidi and the ILC staff also conducted a ‘book swap’ in support of the foundation.

The wellbeing team are running mindful colouring sessions in the ILC during Wednesday’s at lunchtime.
All students are welcome to come, sit, and take the chance to be creative and share conversations with each other.
These sessions encourage relationship building, relaxation and being present.
Stop by on Wednesdays and have a go!
This year our Year 7 students are participating in Jump Rope for Heart - a fantastic physical activity and fundraising program by the Heart Foundation. This is a very personal cause for me after losing my Dad in 2015 to a heart attack. This was a huge loss for my family but having the chance to do something positive is very special and we hope to stop other families from experiencing loss because of cardiovascular disease.
For the past 3 years, my family and l have held a fundraising walk from Queenscliff to Geelong called “Walk for Johno” in Dad’s memory. With the support of family, friends and the local community we have raised over $75,000 which is amazing and we can’t wait for the 2019 walk on Saturday March 16th, which you can now register for free by visiting our website www.walkforjohno.org But l knew there was still more l could do! This is where you come in!
Jump Rope for Heart is a great way for your child to keep fit, have fun and learn new skills but it also helps raise funds for vital heart research and education programs. At Saint Ignatius College we support many fundraisers and initiatives by being people of competence, conscience and compassion.
Whilst raising much needed funds is a huge part of the Heart Foundation so to is raising awareness and educating people about heart health. Therefore, if you are not in a position to help by fundraising you can still assist by promoting this message and well worthy cause. Students will be awarded with community service hours (minimum of 3 hours) for participating in the program and helping to educate and raise awareness.
They can practice and refine their jump rope skills at lunchtimes on Monday, Tuesday and Friday and will get 30 minutes’ community service for each lunch session. Year 8 students that are interested are also welcome to join in the fun at lunchtimes and can fundraise if they wish to.
However, if you can assist by fundraising or setting up an online sponsorship page that is wonderful news! It’s really important you register your child online so they can receive the full benefits of the program and also participate in online fundraising.
Sign your child up for online fundraising:
We will be holding our Jump Off on Wednesday the 5th December during our last day celebrations. Thank you for supporting the Jump Rope for Heart program! If you need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com
