1 Issue 17 Friday 19 November 2010 From the Principal Dear Parents and Students It is a great privilege for me this week to write to you in my first letter as Principal of the College. I would like to thank all the staff, parents and students for the many words of encouragement and support which I have received as I have taken up this new role in the last fortnight. I look forward to the future with great optimism and enthusiasm, as we continue to work together and grow this wonderful community which is Loreto. Farewell and Thank you Friday 5 November was Mrs Cheryl Hamilton s last day as Principal of the College and was marked by a lunch time sausage sizzle and ice blocks for all the students. Mrs Hamilton had the opportunity of saying goodbye to the girls in a relaxed, fun way as she mingled with the girls. This was the culmination of a number of farewell events which had occurred earlier in the term including the Community farewell on Saturday, 16 October, at which Mr Mark Bodycoat, Chair of the College Council, Dr Vicki Franzon-Lewis, Chair of the Parents and Friends, Mrs Tara Gremmett, President of the Old Scholars Association and Sr Christine Burke, Provincial, had the opportunity of acknowledging and thanking Mrs Hamilton for the enormous contribution that she has made to the Loreto College community over the last 10 years. This was followed by the student farewell assembly on the following Monday, where the students presented a stroll down memory lane of Mrs Hamilton s time at Loreto. The students affectionately crowned her the Loreto Queen of Hearts acknowledging Mrs Hamilton s compassion, empathy, generosity, kindness and love for all. Mrs Hamilton has been a much loved Principal, who will be very much missed by all staff, parents, students and the wider College community; our prayers and love go with her and her husband Ian as they move back home to Queensland. We are, indeed, very fortunate that Mrs Hamilton will remain in the Loreto family, as Principal of Loreto, Coorparoo and we look forward to our continued association in the coming years. Thank you Mrs Hamilton; we will miss you. Remembrance Day 11 November 2010 Last week, as we commemorated Remembrance Day across the College, I was particularly moved by the Monday morning R-5 Remembrance Day liturgy led by Ms Hattie Ziesing s Year 3 girls. The girls, wearing their red poppies and sprigs of rosemary, were just beautiful. They were well prepared and demonstrated a real understanding of the significance of the day, as did the rest of the primary students, in the reverent manner in which they participated in the liturgy. I share with you below the poem that was read in a most moving manner by the Year 3 girls. PLEASE WEAR A POPPY. Please wear a poppy, the lady said And held one forth, but I shook my head. Then I stopped and watched as she offered them there, And her face was old and lined with care; But beneath the scars the years had made There remained a smile that refused to fade. A boy came whistling down the street, Bouncing along on care-free feet. His smile was full of joy and fun, Lady, said he, may I have one? When she s pinned it on he turned to say, Why do we wear a poppy today? The lady smiled in her wistful way And answered, This is Remembrance Day, And the poppy there is the symbol for The gallant men who died in war. And because they did, you and I are free - That s why we wear a poppy, you see. I had a boy about your size, With golden hair and big blue eyes. He loved to play and jump and shout, Free as a bird he would race about. As the years went by he learned and grew and became a man - as you will, too.

2 2 He was fine and strong, with a boyish smile, But he d seemed with us such a little while When war broke out and he went away. I still remember his face that day When he smiled at me and said, Goodbye, I ll be back soon, Mom, so please don t cry. But the war went on and he had to stay, And all I could do was wait and pray. His letters told of the awful fight, (I can see it still in my dreams at night), With the tanks and guns and cruel barbed wire, And the mines and bullets, the bombs and fire. Till at last, at last, the war was won - And that s why we wear a poppy son. The small boy turned as if to go, Then said, Thanks, lady, I m glad to know. That sure did sound like an awful fight, But your son - did he come back all right? A tear rolled down each faded cheek; She shook her head, but didn t speak. I slunk away in a sort of shame, And if you were me you d have done the same; For our thanks, in giving, if oft delayed, Thought our freedom was bought - and thousands paid! And so when we see a poppy worn, Let us reflect on the burden borne, By those who gave their very all When asked to answer their country s call That we at home in peace might live. Then wear a poppy! Remember - and give! Don Crawford. DIGITAL EDUCATION REVOLUTION (DER) Thank you to all parents who attended our DER meeting last Wednesday evening and also to the parents who responded to our on-line parent survey regarding the 1:1 funding by the Federal Government for the provision of computers to students from Year 9 onwards. Over 30 parents across year levels engaged in conversation and provided feedback to the College regarding the many issues surrounding this funding. It was heartening to see the parents acknowledge and appreciate the complexities with the distribution of this money, as it is only sufficient to provide students in two year levels with computers. Parents also appreciated that, as the payment is a one off, the long term sustainability of the program is not guaranteed. The feedback will be summarised and incorporated in our decision making as we move forward to a more definite position for We hope to have this program in place in Semester 2, If you were unable to attend the meeting and would like to give us feedback, we have organised the following address for you to contribute your ideas: Your feedback is very much welcomed and we will inform all parents of our final decision early next year.

Entrance via 316 Portrush Road A reminder to all parents that the entry via 316 Portrush Road onto school grounds is a vehicle entry only for staff and visitors. It is not a drop off entry point for students. If you are dropping off students for before school or after school activities, this must be done on Talbot Grove. Can I please ask all parents to cooperate by using Talbot Grove as the drop off point for all students. Rosalie Gleeson Principal Talbot Grove parking Could I please ask parents and carers to be mindful of being courteous to the residents of Talbot Grove and adhere to correct road rules. There have been instances when cars have blocked driveway access to residents homes, even though this may have been only for a few minutes. We thank you for your cooperation. TALBOT GROVE PICK-UP/DROP-OFF: TWO MINUTE ZONE I would also ask that all parents and carers please observe the two minute restrictions, as per the parking regulations. These restrictions enable the traffic to keep moving and are fair to everyone, provided that we all observe the regulations. As a community that values and respects each other, your courtesy and full cooperation is greatly appreciated. Immediate Pick Up and drop Off only 2 minute maximum 8.00am am 3.00pm pm Driver MUST remain with vehicle. Rowing Update It was the second rowing regatta for this term last Saturday where the teams began to perform exceptionally well. In the Year 8 Quad Scull there were 2 wins and medals were awarded and Loreto also placed 1st as an invitational boat for a combination of year 9s and 10s (no medals awarded). The other crews had a mix of top 3 positions and were exceptionally well placed given the quality of the field.

4 4 Music News Instrumental Music lessons Only students who wish to commence music tuition in 2011 need to complete an Application for Music Tuition form. It is assumed that any student currently learning an instrument will be continuing next year. If a student wishes to discontinue lessons or change to another instrument please advise the tutor and request a discontinuation form. An Application Form for the new instrument will then need to be submitted. Music tuition is undertaken on a semester basis. Forms are due for return to Christine Trahair in the Music department by Friday November 26th. Congratulations to Shani DeSilva Year 9 who achieved an A for her Grade 5 AMEB Piano exam and to Meg Rosenbauer Yr 8 who achieved an A for her Grade 6 AMEB Piano exam. Ms Christine Trahair Music Coordinator R-12 Social Justice Focus: Win/Win Situations With much work behind the scenes, the students have embraced the notion of and have a greater understanding of the term Fair Trade. Fair Trade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices, Fair Trade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives. Hence, we are able to source Fair Trade products from many parts of the world and then sell them in our school during nominated lunch times during the term. The first Fair Trade Friday was extremely well-received by students and staff. The Gonzaga Youth Leaders decided this year to donate all profits raised from the Fair Trade Fridays to the St Vincent de Paul Fred s Van Program at the end of the year. On November 26 we will have the Fair Trade Christmas Friday in the foyer of the St Anne s Performing Arts Centre from 3.30 pm to 6.30 pm. We invite students, staff, parents and friends to come along to purchase an array of beautiful and affordable pieces. There will be a number of products which will cater for all tastes including: Indigenous art; skin care; accessories; clothing; jewellery; food stuffs; sporting goods; and home wares. Present on the afternoon will also be other senior students selling cupcakes outside the foyer. All money raised from the sale of these will go towards Childhood Heart Disease (CHD). In fact: Childhood heart disease (CHD) is the most common birth abnormality affecting one in 100 children. That is six babies every day across Australia born with some form of CHD - over 2000 per year. Heart Disease is the greatest killer of children under the age of 5 in Australia taking more lives than all other diseases combined. CHD takes more lives than all other childhood diseases combined, twice that of cancer. For 80% of the cases the cause is largely unknown so there is much to be done and many miraculous discoveries to be made. Prevention, detection, and early intervention are needed so that we can beat every form of childhood heart disease. Finally, as we approach the end of the year, we are reminded that Christmas is a lovely time spent with family, friends and receiving gifts. Yet not everyone has the same opportunity. This year the school community will be supporting Moore Street Day Centre with the Christmas Hamper drive. Over 1900 hampers will be distributed to needy people in Adelaide. The advertisement on page 7 of this letter advises you of the non-perishable and other new items your daughters can donate this year. The hamper collection ends Friday morning Week 7.
