Congratulations to our Year 12 students
I congratulate the Class of 2018 on their achievements. I thank them for their contribution to our school community. Their education has provided them with a solid foundation for their future success and contribution to building a better world.
I look forward to hearing about their successes, adventures and contributions to our society in the years to come. Each of them has many gifts and talents, and I encourage them to go forward “to love and to serve” and make the most of the wonderful opportunities awaiting them.
I congratulate all of our Year 12 VCE students who received their results on Friday last week. I am very pleased to report that overall our VCE results are again very impressive. Many students achieved results of which they can be very proud. Their perseverance, knowledge, skills and effort resulted in an achievement that met or exceeded their expectations. In particular, I congratulate the 2018 College Dux, Callum McWaters with an impressive ATAR of 97.5.
Some key statistics about the 2018 VCE results are:
11.2% of our students who applied for an ATAR received a rank above 90
31 was the median study score
6.3% of our students received study scores of 40 or more
Congratulations to the following students who received an ATAR of above 90:
Lara Barnes, Leah Bensted, Isabella Borley, Matthew Clark, Mackinley Collins, Rachel Deane-Teggelove, Keira Ford, Chloe Hayes, Ronan Healy, Olivia Hewitt, Annabel Hooper, Dominic Randall, Madison Smith, Bridget Waring and Matson Waring
VCE coordinator, Ms Anna Oliver, provides some more detail about the VCE results in her article in this newsletter.
I would also like to congratulate our VCAL students on completion of their VCAL certificates. At the last staff meeting of the year, Ms Kirsty Allan (VCAL Coordinator) shared with staff the variety of pathways undertaken by these students. Many have secured fulltime apprenticeships, others will be undertaking further education and, some have obtained employment.
With the VCE results published and VCE or VCAL certificates obtained, some students may be looking for some support, and I remind students and parents that our Work and Further Education Coordinator, Mr Bruce Connor (email@example.com) is available to discuss plans with any student who would like some advice.
The ‘results’ of all of our students reflect their commitment to learning, the hard work and encouragement of their teachers and the love and support of their parents and families. I wish our Class of 2018 all the best for their futures.
Semester Two Reports
I hope parents have taken the opportunity to access your daughters / son’s Semester Two report via the Parent Portal by now. I trust that this document records achievements, identifies strengths and areas for improvement and acknowledges effort. I encourage parents to make some time with their daughter/son to reflect on progress this year in the light of the report and lead the conversation towards setting some goals for 2019.
Transition to Year 7
The 2019 Year 7 Orientation Day held on Tuesday last week was very successful. We welcomed 250 students. There was a very large attendance of parents on the morning for the parent orientation meeting as well.
As has been our practice we offered a “Singles” orientation morning on the previous Thursday. This was to better prepare Grade Six students who were the only student from their primary school or who had been identified as benefitting from spending some time at school prior to Orientation Day. This was well received judging by the uptake and appears to have contributed very positively to the success of the main orientation day. I thank our Transition Coordinator, Ms Tory Wood for her leadership and management of the Singles and Orientation Days. Also, thank you to incoming Year 7 Coordinator, Ms Leonie O’Brien for her work to ensure both days went very well.
Potato Shed 2019 Season Launch
On the evening of Wednesday 5th December, I attended the Potato Shed function to launch the 2019 season. Ms Kaz Paton (Manager Arts & Culture, City of Greater Geelong) introduced the new season’s program and Rob McLeod and Lisa Warrick, who both manage the Potato Shed, ran through what to expect each month. The program covers a range of performances and is well worth a look; we are very fortunate to have the availability of a variety of performances at a quality local venue.
Please check the Potato Shed website for information about this program at www.geelongaustralia.com.au/potatoshed

Merry Christmas & happy new year
As this is the last newsletter of the year, on behalf of the College I wish all families a very happy and holy Christmas and safe and restful holiday break. Thank you to all members of our Saint Ignatius College community for your contributions and support during the past year.
Michael Exton Principal
As the year concludes, we enter into the last week of Advent. We joyfully await the coming of Jesus and the time spent with loved ones. The school year has ended and soon we will all be enjoying a well-deserved rest and some extended time with family and friends. This last week for many is the pinnacle of the year, with the end of the working year and vacation. There is a lovely synergy with this excitement and the coming of Jesus which we prepare for throughout Advent.
Christmas and the New Year are times of initium novum (new beginnings). To be able to encounter new beginnings we must review the past and discern a path forward. I invite you to enter into this Ignatian context as you read the following, prepare for Christmas and consider the future.
At this time of the year we should all pause to consider the year that has passed and all of the experiences we have had. Set aside some time to review the year from beginning to end. It may be helpful to write down all of the memories and experiences that you recall.
Consider: What was good about the year? What was challenging? What new things did I see and do? What skills do I have now that I did not at the beginning of the year? Who did I help? How have I grown? Where did I find God in my journey? Who helped me? What hurt me? What or who was I unable to forgive? Who cared for me in a way I did not expect? How have I become more whole?
Being more aware of the year that has passed I encourage you to take some time to celebrate what you have found; both positive and challenging. Life consists of a mosaic of experiences that bring us joy and sadly pain. Being human and in experiencing the fullness of life we are exposed to infinite experiences and emotions. Therefore, we are called to celebrate every experience – ‘good’ or ‘bad’. Consider that even the ‘bad’ things in our lives bring about growth and in turn good. For Ignatius the ‘bad’ came in the form of a cannon ball. Without that terrible event would Ignatius have had an alternative conversion experience? In the bad there is always some good that can be found. Reviewing your reflection of the year take some time to celebrate everything that has passed – ‘good’ and ‘bad’. Combined, these things make living what it is and that in itself is worth celebrating.
Pause to consider the following reading anew in light of your own reflection and ‘celebration’:
In that region there were shepherds living in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger.”… …the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.” So they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the child lying in the manger. When they saw this, they made known what had been told them about this child; and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds told them. But Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.
Reflect upon what you have found in re-reading the above and celebrate your year as the shepherds did the arrive of Jesus.
Gratitude is a noble virtue and one that can be cultivated. Take a few moments to give thanks to Our Lord for the experiences of the past year. Every day you are offered a myriad of choices and experiences that may or may not be connected. The great gift of free will allows you the grace to decide how you will enter into the day. In light of these thoughts spend some time giving thanks for the year that you have lived and all of the experiences both the ‘good’ and the ‘bad’. It may be helpful to view the less positive or painful moments by seeking the growth that occurred or by identifying those who cared for you or offered their love during these times – for these things we should surely be grateful.
As we await the coming of Jesus at Christmas take a moment consider the gifts you bring into the world and the lives of others. What joy do you bring to each day in the way you live your life and love others? What can you do in the future to share your presence and love more freely and completely? Who do you need to seek and offer mercy, love or forgiveness? The greatest gift you have to offer is in fact yourself.
Pause to consider the following reading anew in light of your own reflection and the ‘gifts’ you offer:
In the time of King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem… …and there, ahead of them, went the star that they had seen at its rising, until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw that the star had stopped, they were overwhelmed with joy. On entering the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother; and they knelt down and paid him homage. Then, opening their treasure chests, they offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. And having been warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they left for their own country by another road.
Reflect upon what you have discovered in re-reading the above and continue to seek those whom you have gifts to offer.
As Christmas draws near I hope that you find the reflection offered helpful. I also hope that you have been able to reflect upon the year and make a connection between what we await and all that has occurred in your life. Each day we have the opportunity to live our lives more like the vision God has of us. As we await the coming of Jesus we are called to reflect on what has passed, who we are and who we are able to be. I wish you well on our journey and pray that you enjoy peace, joy and contentment with your love ones over this holy time and your vacation.
Yours in Christ,
Brendan Nicholls Liturgy Coordinator
Congratulations to all Year 12 students on their successful completion of secondary schooling. The Saint Ignatius VCE students received their study scores and ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank) on Friday December 14th, 2018. 16 students received an ATAR over 90, which places the academic achievements in the top 10% of students in Australia. Sophie Skuza (current year 11 student) achieved the highest study score, 49 (out of a possible 50) in Units 3 & 4 Psychology, which is an exceptional achievement for an acceleration student.
The College ATAR DUX was received by Callum McWater with a score of 97.5. Callum is hoping to study Biomedicine in 2019. Callum has been an extremely dedicated student for all his years at Saint Ignatius and has received academic awards at the College Mosaic evening each year.
Dominic Randall achieved an ATAR of 96.15 and he is hoping to gain entry into the Global science and technology program in 2019. Dominic participated in the College LEAP program in 2018 and he also help out his friends playing guitar for their Music Performance examination.
Chloe Hayes achieved an ATAR of 96.05 and has applied to study Occupational Therapy in 2019. She is an extremely hard working student and this year was no different in the time and effort she dedicated to her studies.
Mackinley Collins achieved an ATAR of 95.7 and after deciding mid-year that biomedicine wasn’t her future pathway, she has applied to study electrical and electronics engineering at university.
Lara Barnes achieved an ATAR of 94.8 and she wrote the following after receiving her results:
“Throughout year 12 I learnt how to find a manageable balance between work, social and school life. I thankfully discovered I didn’t have to sacrifice enjoying extra curricular activities to be able to put in the time and effort needed to my schooling. My favourite subjects were biology, english and physical education and it is largely due to the amazing teachers that I was able to actually enjoy school and achieve results that I was proud of at the end of the year, as they provided ongoing support and encouragement.”
The Waring twins studied different subjects in 2018 and according to mum, Tracey, were super competitive all year. Matson achieved an ATAR of 92.65 and Bridget achieved an ATAR of 90.3. Both Matson and Bridget have applied to go to university in 2019, Bridget is hoping to gain entry into a Psychological Science degree whilst Matson is hoping to completed a double degree in Engineering and Commerce.
Ronan Healy (ATAR 91.4) and Matthew Clark (ATAR 91.25) both hope to gain a place into engineering degrees in 2019. Matthew is hoping to have a focus on environmental engineering whereas Ronan is aiming for a double degree with Science.
Madison Smith (ATAR 93.2) and Rachel Deane Teggelove (ATAR 91) are hoping to study Biomedicine and Optometry respectively.
Annabel Hooper (ATAR 90.25) and Keira Ford (ATAR 90.7) have applied to study International studies and Laws/ Global Studies respectively in 2018. Both girls studies a language in 2018 which should aid them in their future studies.
Leah Bensted achieved an ATAR of 90.6 and is hoping to study Teacher education – primary in 2019. She wrote the reflection below on her final year at Saint Ignatius College:
“I was so excited to find out my ATAR! I could not believe I had done so well!
I really enjoyed year twelve, particularly Indonesian and Theatre Studies, however all my subjects were brilliant. I want to say thank you to all my subject teachers, and also to Mrs. Oliver and Mr. McLean for all your support. I could not have gotten through the year without you guys!
Next year I am hoping to study Primary Education at the Australian Catholic University in Melbourne, and I am really looking forward to it!”
Congratulations to all VCE students on their year of study at Saint Ignatius College.
Mrs Anna Oliver VCE Coordinator
In the music department, we have shared with our students many fabulous performances this year.
Three of our students have also attempted Australian Music Examinations and received fabulous results. These rigorous examinations involve students preparing a number of pieces, (with a piano accompanist), technical work, general knowledge and ear tests.
Congratulations to Lilie, Emily and Noah for their outstanding achievements. You have shown such dedication to your music studies and we are very proud.
Ms Veronica Marrie
As the year draws to a close we all begin to reflect on the year that was.
Part of our VCAL program is to track where our students are headed post-secondary schooling. VCAL outcomes are pathway driven and as such, it is exciting to report that we had a total of 22 students begin Year 12 VCAL this year, of those 22, seven have obtained an apprenticeship, with a further two seeking an apprenticeship. We have students heading into Electrical, Hairdressing, Carpentry and Chef Apprenticeships, and naturally we would like to wish them all the best as they begin their careers.
We also have eight students continuing to study with providers such as Australian Catholic University, Deakin University and The Gordon. Areas of study include Nursing, Education and Early Childhood Education and Care. Once again we wish those students undertaking further study all the very best with their studies in 2019 and beyond.
There are three students beginning work in their chosen industries – one of whom is heading off to Camp America in June as a camp counsellor!
We look forward to hearing of their successes in the coming years.
This leaves two of our 2018 Year 12 VCAL students who are still undecided as to where they will head in 2019. Both currently have part-time employment and know that the door is not closed here at Saint Ignatius College should they want further career guidance and support.
It has been a very busy and really productive 2018. We would like to wish all of the Year 12 students every success for the future, with their chosen pathways!
Ms Kirsty Allan VCAL Coordinator
Pictured with Mr. David Peart (right) and Mr. Chris Coy (left) are three of our Year 10 students Jools Bond, Darby O’Meara and Marcus Vaughan who received their Certificate of Participation at the recent Awards Night at Deakin University’s CADET Building.
This was in recognition for their participation and commitment to the well organised Geelong Future Leaders of Industry Program - facilitated by the Geelong Manufacturing Council. This initiative is sponsored by Skilling the Bay which is a partnership between the Victorian Government, Deakin University and The Gordon TAFE.
At Saint Ignatius College, we specifically open this opportunity to students in Year 10 who have a keen interest in researching careers around the Manufacturing/Engineering sectors. The program consists of a series of 6, day-long program events during Terms 2 and 3. Each program event takes place at a different location so students discover and learn about the diverse nature of advanced manufacturing in this region.
Students are involved in a number of activities including site tours, presentations from experts in their field as well as team orientated workshops.
Saint Ignatius College students have benefitted from this no-cost program for over ten years and I would strongly recommend any Year 10 student to contact me to discuss the program and when required, apply for the 2019 intake.
Mr. Bruce Connor Work and Further Education Coordinator
I was lucky enough to spend a week at Barwon Health on Work Experience with a difference.
Places were tight with only 40 Year 10 students from across Geelong being selected for the special program.
We got to find out about a whole lot of things and have a really different learning experience.
We were introduced to a range of employees who have different jobs at Barwon Health including: Physio, Pharmacists, radiographers, nurses, speech pathologist, paramedics, podiatrists, doctors, age care workers.
I really enjoyed midwifery because I was able to see what a real placenta and umbilical cord looked like.
It was surprising to learn that I was actually interested in medical imaging because it wasn’t something I thought I’d be interested in.
I really enjoyed learning about Dave’s story because it was so inspiring about how positive he is even after becoming a paraplegic.
I got to try out wound care in our nursing session.
We spent a lot of time in simulating rooms with fake patients learning about IVs, blood tests etc.
The most challenging thing about the week was hard to try and remember all the things I learned because there was a lot of sessions on all different things within the Health Care and I found it hard to remember a lot of things I was told.
What I really enjoyed about the week was midwifery, meeting new people, learning new things.
I think the qualities you need to work in the Health sector are patience, leadership, making patients feel like you’re not judging them, an understanding of privacy and confidentiality, having good communication skills and overall being friendly to everyone.
One thing I won’t forget about this week is the friends I’ve met, and I won’t forget Lucy from the MacKellar Centre.
Now I think that in the future I think I am going to do the double degree in Ballarat in Nursing and paramedicine.
I recommend this program to next year’s Year 10 students. Put up your hand, give it a go. It’s good to put yourself forward and good for your future!

The DAV offers the opportunity to students in all year levels at schools in the Geelong Region to take part in Debating on the following evenings in 2019:
Thursday 2nd May
Thursday 16th May
Thursday 30th May
Thursday 13th June
Thursday 1st August
What is required of student participants at Saint Ignatius College:
- a firm commitment to the full program of five debates (no withdrawals are permitted as this is unfair on teammates and on students in other schools who prepare as expected for each fixture)
- attendance at set weekly lunchtime meetings to prepare and rehearse speeches
- a firm commitment to completing speeches in time for rehearsals
- organization of own transport arrangements to and from the venue (Geelong Grammar School, Corio Campus); parents are welcome to attend the debates as members of the audience.
All participants are assisted and supported with the preparation of their arguments and the rehearsal of their speeches. This ensures that students are equipped with the necessary skills and able to debate with confidence.
Any student who is willing to take up the challenge of Debating in 2019 and who is prepared to make the commitment required is asked to have a parent or guardian express their interest by emailing Ms Andrea Dart: firstname.lastname@example.org. Expressions of interest close on Friday 8th February after which time the SICG Debating teams will be registered and organized. As the DAV organises both regional and metropolitan competitions which generally run from March through to August, it is necessary to register teams in February for the program to commence in May. We look forward to fielding junior and senior teams next year.
Ms Andrea Dart Debating Co-ordinator
Powercor has launched a new program called Energy Partner in areas on the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula over summer, and to support the introduction of this program we are offering a competition benefiting local schools.
The school with the most nominations from families, who register and participate in Energy Partner Events, will receive a grant of $10,000*.
And as your school falls within the Energy Partner area, you are in the running to receive this grant.
Every time a household registers as an Energy Partner, they are asked to nominate a local school and once a household participates in an event, their vote is allocated to the school they nominated. The school with the most nominations at the end of the program will receive the prize.
Powercor Energy Partner is open for registration now for those living within the Bellarine Peninsula and parts of the Surf Coast. Program details and the registration page can be found here powercor.com.au/energy-partner.
About Energy Partner
That’s extra pocket money for families or it can go towards energy bills.
From 1 December 2018 to 31 March 2019, residents within areas of the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula can partner with Powercor to help reduce demand through air conditioning units in their home, for a few hours, on a few really hot days over summer.
It’s a simple thing the community can do to help.

Coastal Conscience Presents: How deep are your pockets
Barwon Coast has partnered with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Victoria Police, CFA, City of Greater Geelong and Ocean Grove Coastcare under the Share Our Shores campaign to advocate behavioural change amongst youth engaging in destructive and dangerous dune behaviour.
Barwon Coast Committee of Management Inc. is appointed by state government to manage 13km of coastal Crown land from 7W Collendina to 42W Connewarre on behalf of all Victorians. Our main charter is for the protection and enhancement of natural values within our estate, whilst providing a place for people to recreate. In addition to natural resource protection, a key responsibility for us is to manage risk to ensure the safety of all users of our reserves.
Our coastal reserves are under constant pressures as populations both locally and visiting the area increase. As a consequence Barwon Coast launched our Share Our Shores campaign late 2017 to create awareness on a number of coastal issues the community has identified. Issues identified are beach-overcrowding, littering, dogs’ off-leash, threats to wildlife and sand dune damage. Over the last few years there has been a significant increase in youth parties within the dunes, which has led to vegetation vandalism, dune destruction, significant littering and the lighting of fires. We anticipate the stronger message will change this dangerous behaviour and engage the youth to take ownership of the natural environment in a positive way.
