Tomorrow we finish the third week of the academic year, and I am glad that overall the school year has commenced very well. We have already held many significant events that have ‘set the scene’ for the new year – promoting our values, our Ignatian Story and sense of community - as well as encouraging students to make the most of their wonderful opportunities at Saint Ignatius to grow and develop themselves.
Themes that have underpinned our encouragement to our students as we begin the new year include: we are grateful for our education and positively and constructively respond to the opportunities and support we have, we have high expectations for our students, we nurture and support a strong learning culture, we are women and men for others - we help each other to build an active school community, and we support those in need in the wider community. These link very well with the theme chosen by the senior student leaders for this year – “Be the difference.”
Visit by Bishop Edwards
We warmly welcomed Bishop Mark Edwards to our College last Friday. This was his second visit to us, and I am grateful he was able to spend most of the day meeting students and staff and in particular, conducting listening sessions with students to provide them with a chance to give input to the Plenary Council. Bishop Edwards is the Auxiliary Bishop of the Western Region of the Melbourne Archdiocese. Bishop Edwards will be back again in late February to meet with students and staff again. Thank you to our RE Coordinator, Mr Brendan Nicholls for coordinating the visit.
House Swimming Carnival
Later in this newsletter, Mr Andrew Philp (Sports Coordinator) has advertised, with more details, the Annual House Swimming Carnival to be held on next Monday (25th February) at Kardinia Pool, Geelong. Parents should have received the usual permission letter with more details about this compulsory College event via ‘Caremonkey.’ All Year 7 – 12 students are required to attend. Can I please reinforce the requirement that all students attend with the intention of participating if they can? Whole school events like this one are important and as a College we have the clear expectation that all students take an appropriately full and active part in our co-curricular programs.
Parent Information Evenings
We have conducted Parent Information Evenings over the last two weeks. I have received very positive feedback from many parents about the evenings, and I thank all parents who were able to attend for their support of our College. We welcome feedback about College events to continually improving what we offer. You can write, ring (Ph. 52511136) or e-mail the college (firstname.lastname@example.org) any constructive comments. Please address the comments to the chief organiser; in the case of the information evenings this would be the relevant Year Level Coordinator (YLC.)
Thank you to the YLCs, Ms Leonie O’Brien (7), Ms Deb Hodge (8), Mr Brendan O’Brien (10), Ms Kristin Williamson (11) and Mr Joe Mclean (12), and their staff teams for providing these evenings.
Beginning of Year Masses
Each Year level has recently attended a Beginning of the Year Mass at St Thomas Church.
These Masses were special opportunities to thank God, pray for God’s blessing on the new school year and encourage students to respond positively to God’s gifts and the opportunities the school year will bring.
Thank you to Fr Gerry Healy and Fr James Puppady and for celebrating Masses for us.
Thank you to Mr Paul Lewis and Mr Brendan Nicholls for their work to organise these Masses.
Thank you also to Mrs Linda Pape, Ms Marina Brown and our choir students and some musicians who led the singing and music for us.
Parents and Friends' Association (PFA)
The PFA is a very positive and vital support for our community. They held their first meeting of the year on Tuesday 12th February. I want to recognise the generous and valuable contribution parents can and do make to our school community through membership of this group. Thank you to all members of this group and in particular the current office bearers:
Ms Rebecca Hay President
Ms Cathy Dykes Secretary
Ms Sandi Clark Treasurer
Please consider coming along to the next PFA meeting on Tuesday 12th March, at 7 pm in the Food Studies Centre.
Many of the members of this group have given generous service to the school community for many years, and it is vital that we have new parents join this group each year to replace those who finish up. So I encourage all parents to please consider joining this group – a strong PFA will strengthen our school community and improve outcomes for all students!
There are a variety of ways parents can help out. The College canteen helpers are vital to helping us provide a canteen service to our students. Many parents and friends of the College have put their name down to assist in the canteen, and I encourage you to consider contacting our Canteen Manager, Mrs Sandra Woodall, to offer your services.
Some of the ways the PFA supports our school community include: running fundraisers and social events, helping out at school functions, organising working bees, encouraging and supporting a sustainable school environment, running a second-hand uniform shop and a second-hand book sale. I ask all parents to please support the PFA where you can, this group’s work benefits all students.
All drivers travelling to and from our College are reminded of the need to adhere to traffic sign requirements at all times.
To promote safety, I remind our community that the speed limit on Andersons Road near the school precinct is 40 km/h and 40 km/h at all times on Peninsula Drive.
Please approach the intersection of Andersons Road and Peninsula Drive with care and in particular when approaching the school crossing near this intersection.
When attending after-hours events at the College, please do not park in the St Thomas Primary School carpark.
Thank you for your support in prioritising the road safety of all those in and around the College.
Enhancing Catholic School Identity (ECSI) Survey.
Soon all parents will receive an invitation via email to participate in the ECSI survey which will assist us in better understanding how our Catholic Identity is expressed in work and practice at our College. In a separate email letter, we will also ask you for your consent for your daughter/son to complete this survey. All staff members will be invited to complete the survey as well.
The Catholic University in Leuven was commissioned by the Catholic Education Commission of Victoria Ltd (CECV) to design a process and tools, based on sound research, to accomplish the goal of understanding our current Catholic identity and where the school community might like to see itself in the future.
The ECSI survey is a critical element of this process, and we need as many parents as possible to complete this survey. Your responses to this survey are guaranteed to be kept anonymous. Instructions will be provided in the email invitation letter.
If you have any questions, please contact Mr Paul Lewis, Deputy Principal (Identity) through the school office.
Thank you for your consideration of this request and your anticipated participation.
Major Roads Projects Victoria Senior Engagement Adviser, Jessica Taylor provides the following update about the Drysdale Bypass construction.
“As you can see, we’ve been busy over the summer months moving lots of dirt from the high points of the bypass alignment to the new Peninsula Drive alignment and the section between Gillies Road and Peninsula Drive.
We’re making great progress with the road and roundabout taking shape and we’re on track to have the new Peninsula Drive open for term two, 2019.
The school community’s safety has been paramount as we plan and undertake all works in this area. To ensure we’re distinguishing our work zone from the school, we have built a new fence between the bypass and the school precinct. This fence is permanent and will remain in place when the bypass is open and operational.
We’ve got a busy couple of months coming up to ensure we meet our timeframes and we would like to update you on the current changes to traffic conditions:
We have trucks moving dirt from the Andersons Road hill worksite across Gillies Road and into the old Blue Gum plantation area.
While we have traffic management set up for the trucks crossing Gillies Road, we have made a dedicated crossing with a traffic controller at Peninsula Drive, we therefore advise all students to please access the schools via Peninsula Drive, where possible.
For the month of February, we are carting dirt along Princess Street.
We understand students use Princess Street as a school route as both pedestrians and cyclists.
Given Princess Street doesn’t have dedicated footpaths for the entire length, we would advise parents to keep this in mind and where possible use an alternative route for school drop off and pick up.”
The Year 9 and Multipurpose Centres ($14M project) are progressing well. We have only lost a few days of construction due to wet weather so, we still expect to commence in these building at the start of term three in mid-July this year.
Over the recent holiday period, the College’s front carpark was extended to provide 17 additional spaces.
Michael Exton Principal
Reading the daily news can lead one to believe that justice is elusive in our world and that there is more isolation and rejection than inclusion and acceptance. In today’s news there are stories of antisemitism in Melbourne, challenges to President Trump’s ‘beautiful wall’, a shocking lack of services for our Indigenous communities, ongoing war in Middle East and the forced re-education of the Uighur people in China. During this week the world celebrates the World Day of Social Justice. This is quite a juxtaposition and worthy of some thought.
It seems there is so much wrong with the world today. There are so many people who use their position of authority to get what they want and force others to enable our act out their vision via proxy. Greed is the basis for all violence and injustice in our world. Greed is a desire manifested by the ego and disordered attachments. Greed it seems is part of how we are made no matter how good we think we are.
When looking at all the bad things that occur in our world it’s easy to become disillusioned and abandon hope for the future or change. This theme is explored under the banner of ‘Good and Evil’ in our Year 8 and Year 9 Religious Education courses at the College. Viewing the world objectively is a behaviour that needs investigation and practice if we are to have hope and see the hidden truth of our world. At an individual level we see many examples of good and can see many people who each day work to bring about justice in small and large ways. When we compare the amount of good and evil in the world it’s clear that good has the numbers. Thus we can be hopeful and positive about our world.
Our Ignatian tradition offers us a number of tools that can help us observe our world and our ability to live as we are called. In the second week of the Exercises, St Ignatius asks us to contemplate the Incarnation. Viewing the world as the Trinity does, looking down upon the Earth and people “in all their diversity of dress and appearance, some white and some black, some at peace and some at war, some weeping and others laughing, some healthy, others sick, some being born and others dying”. Then we are asked to contemplate the Trinity as the Divine Persons converse about their observations, saying, “Let us bring redemption to the human race”. From this basis Incarnation of Jesus and via the visitation to Our Lady occurs, and through him we are redeemed and have hope.
If we pause to review the daily news and our experiences through the lens the Trinity views the world, as illustrated in the Exercises, we may see things quite differently and objectively. When we view the world and our experiences in a similar way we can accept the world and yet still seek to reform injustices with great hope. At the College we offer many opportunities for students to facilitate change and offer their ‘good’ in the world.
On Tuesday nine of our students participated in a conference called ‘Your choice, Our Future’. The conference is a three-part event, that occurs via online video collaboration between students from Saint Ignatius College (Catholic), Sacred Heart College (Catholic), Mt Scopus College (Jewish) and Minaret College (Islamic). The conference facilitates interfaith dialogue about discrimination and injustice in our society. At the conclusion of the conference this week the students from the four Colleges were combined and split up to decide upon an issue in society that they would like to see change.
Over the next eight weeks the teams will develop a social media campaign to address a problem in our world, offer a message of hope and seek change in the world. The issues that they will choose to address are global and in reality will not be resolved for many years; if ever. However, in being bold and knowing that good will always overcome selfishness and greed they will make change.
As individuals we can also make great change in the world. In seeking to become better people we can make a difference. To be able to do so we need to change our nature. No matter how nice or kind or helpful we are we are not perfect. In accepting this fact, we are able to be humble and call upon God to help us change. Although we may make a decision to change it takes time and we need to be patient. Because God changes our hearts not just our thoughts and these changes are irreversible. When we give He receives and when He gives we receive. This relationship is perfect and enables us to change our nature as this relational framework flows outward as we interact with others and the world.
When we give of ourselves we reach out. This can be accepted or rejected and therefore we must be bold if we are to seek to make change in the world. If our offer is accepted, we become an illustration of Jesus at work in the world. If our offer is rejected, we have not lost. We have seen the face of Jesus in another or as Ignatius would say sought to ‘find God in all things’.
Regardless of whether we bring an end to overwhelming issues such as sexism, racism or slavery we have won. Good has overcome evil. Every time we speak out, are inclusive or challenge structures of injustice we win. Because we have been changed and have changed others.
As we draw closer to Lent I offer you a final thought from St Ignatius. In the Spiritual Exercises Ignatius introduces us to the Examen. He actually gives us three versions. The ‘particular daily examen with four additions’ may be worth considering if in humility you would like to change and remove disordered attachments, that lead us away from God and others. The particular examen encourages us to note the defect we seek to change and note each time we ‘fall into’ that behaviour during the day. As each day passes and the day is reviewed via the examen Ignatius notes that we will have evidence of change and God’s work within our heart.
I encourage you to consider the world in its current state. All of the good and the bad things that occur each day and how we can make change. Contemplate how you might become a better person each day and enter into a deeper relationship with God who will strengthen you and guide you. Finally, I hope you reflect upon these thoughts and are stimulated to seek change and share a vision of positivity with others.
Be bold, have hope, make change.
Yours in Christ,
Brendan Nicholls Liturgy Coordinator

During Tuesday’s House Meetings, our House leaders introduced for the first time our Year 12s to their Year 7 buddies.
The goal of our buddy program is to develop relationships between the younger and older students, enhancing the sense of a friendly and supportive school community. A buddy system can also help students to feel valued and supported, teach important social skills and create a caring ethos in the school. They can create connectedness that enables both older and younger buddies to bond more closely with their school, thereby increasing the likelihood of more positive social behaviour.
There are benefits for the older buddy in acknowledging their leadership, responsibility and pride in their ability to be helpful.
Throughout 2019, there will further opportunities to share their friendship with Year 12 and Year 7 ‘Buddy BBQs’ and different House activities as well as informal and social occasions.
Mr Andrew Philp Director Of Sport
On Thursday 14th February Isabella Harry, Isabel Kincaid, Elyssa Winter, Madeleine Crothers, Samuel Salisbury, Heidi Bakker, William Palmer and Milly Stannard attended the Caritas Just Leadership Day hosted by Sacred Heart College.
Students from the four Geelong Catholic secondary schools and Trinity College Colac participated in the day run by Caritas that explored social justice issues, in particular inequality and inequity, that Caritas and other Catholic organisations are addressing through their projects.
One highlight of the day was playing ‘Unfair Monopoly’ where the students were given a profile according to the world’s population if the world were 10 people. Each profile impacted their ability to access to money and purchase properties simulating the reality of the unequal distribution of wealth in our world today.
With an overarching theme of leadership through service, the day facilitated the development of leadership skills and skills required to organise fundraising campaigns in a school environment.

Rhys Lowther completed his Year 12 VCE studies in 2017 at Saint Ignatius College and decided to defer a University placement and undertake a GAP year during 2018.
He applied for and was offered a one-year Youth Ministry Traineeship at Sacred Heart College in Geelong where his role was to support members of the College community in a range of ways including assisting the Director Mission and Social Justice, the Liturgy Coordinator and other members of the Mission and Ministry Teams.
From the reports I have received, Rhys was a very valuable staff member at Sacred Heart College and will be greatly missed. His ability to relate to both students, staff and the wider community was exceptional and his friendly, willing nature provided him with many opportunities to grow as a young man.
Rhys has recently begun (17/2) his degree at the University of Divinity in Melbourne where he will study to become a Priest. We wish him all the best.

Recently, I heard my adult daughter rebuke a male friend for telling her that she’d lost weight.
“You just can’t say that,” remarked my daughter.
Realising his mistake this young man said, “So what should say instead?”
“Tell me I look healthy.”
“Hey, you look really healthy!”
“That’s better,” remarked my daughter, who’s not backward in coming forwards.
This young man’s scripting was askew. He knew that a male complimenting a female on losing weight maybe no compliment at all, however he didn’t know what else to say. My daughter gave him a new script that he can use in similar situations in the future.
This scenario is relevant to parenting. Parents should always looking for opportunities to give their kids the social scripts to express themselves in different situations.
Benefits of providing kids with social scripts
Social scripting wins the parenting trifecta. Giving kids the words to use helps them stay safe; become social and importantly, promotes their independence. Your job as a parent is to wean kids off you. Social scripting is a big part of this process.
So if keeping kids safe, while socialising and developing their independence is important then look for ways to give kids the right words to use. Here are some ideas to get you started.
1. Asking a teacher for help or assistance
Kids often coerces parents to do their bidding with teachers, coaches, siblings and other adults. It’s easy to pick up the phone and arrange to meet a teacher or go into your child’s room and ask for something on behalf of your child. Take a different approach. “Choose a time when your teacher is free, and then ask her if you can sit at the front of the classroom. You could say….”
2. Entering a game at school
Many kids struggle to enter into a game or activity at school, so they sit on the sidelines and miss out. Consider coaching a child about how he or she may approach a situation. Suggest that he or she looks for someone they know, and wait for a lull in the game before asking. Social scripting involves timing, not just the words to use.
3. Telling a sibling to stop annoying them
“Jessica, please stop flicking the ruler while I’m watching TV. I find it annoying.” This may work. If not, this child could try, “Jessica, could you flick your ruler elsewhere.” It may work. It may not. But it’s infinitely better than yelling, “Jessica, DDDOOOONNNN’TTTT!!!!”
4. Saying No to a friend without losing face
Research shows that many teenagers struggle with peer pressure because they don’t know how to say NO in a way that maintains their status. One strategy is to use an excuse rather than say give an outright NO. “I don’t want to drink tonight because I’ve got football training in the morning.”
5. Expressing their emotions
Both genders can struggle to express their feelings, particularly if they haven’t been taught the words to use at home. Recently, I saw a mother prompt her three year old when he was clearly annoyed.
“Are you frustrated Maxie?”
“Yes, I fusttated!!”
“Would you like a hug?
You’re never too young or too old to be hugged. Just as you’re never too young or too old to receive a social script from a well-meaning parent or friend.

Information for Parents
Every Victorian child should have access to the world of learning opportunities that exist beyond the classroom. The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund helps ensure that no student will miss out on the opportunity to join their classmates for important, educational and fun activities. It is part of making Victoria the Education State and the Government’s commitment to breaking the link between a student’s background and their outcomes.
Camps, Sports & Excursions Fund (CSEF)
School camps provide children with inspiring experiences in the great outdoors, excursion encourage a deeper understanding of how the world works and sports teach teamwork, discipline and leadership.
CSEF is provided by the Victoria Government to assist eligible families to cover the costs of school trips, camps and sporting activities.
If you hold a valid means-tested concession card or are a temporary foster parent, you may be eligible for CSEF. A special consideration category also exists for asylum seeker and refugee families. The allowance is paid to the school to use towards expenses relating to camps, excursions or sporting activities for the benefit of your child.
The annual CSEF amount per student is:

MacKillop Family Services: 'Paws 4 Kids
For some children, school isn’t always an easy place to be, this is especially true for many children living in residential or foster care. They often find it hard because beyond the school gate they’re dealing with some tough issues: family violence, neglect, living out of home or social and/or emotional behaviours, which mainstream schools can find difficult to manage.
MacKillop Family Services’ specialist school in Maidstone and educational outreach programs, support hundreds of children living in Melbourne’s west to get the best education they can. One of the innovative programs they have introduced is PawPals, a canine-assisted learning program to make school and learning a fun, positive experience for kids who have struggled to engage with mainstream education.
