Message from the Headmaster
I was so pleased to go and visit the Year 7 Camp this week. It was great to get amongst the students while they engaged in some fun and challenging activities. The raft building adventure was a lot of fun for the students even if the final products were not ready for true ocean-faring, but they did get across the pool and back multiple times! It was great to watch the students working together, encouraging each other and acting like a team. Who even knew that 28 Year 7 students could raft across the pool and disassemble their rafts in complete silence; now that was a challenge! Amongst the various outdoor activities of Archery, Sailing, Fishing, Rope Course and more, our students were able to hear about the amazing plan that God has for them. The students learned that God created this world to be perfect and for us to enjoy, yet we often mess it up in the way that we act. Unfortunately, we are always going to make mistakes, sometimes intentionally and sometimes accidentally, but God, out of his deep love for us, enacted a rescue plan for each one of us. Through Jesus' death on a cross we can all be accepted back into his family and if you have accepted Jesus as your Saviour, then when this temporary life ends, we will enjoy a perfect life with him for eternity.
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Mr Trevor Norman
From the Deputy's Desk
At the commencement of the year, it is good to consider setting up good study habits.
Motivation is an important consideration when developing good study habits. Students are often motivated either extrinsically (from things such as rewards, praise) or intrinsically (from satisfaction and desire from within to achieve). Both forms of motivation can have their place. As I reflect on my own study when completing my Masters of Education Leadership, both forms of motivation were important to me. Intrinsically I had a desire to complete my studies and had a real sense of satisfaction from this. Extrinsically, I enjoyed rewarding myself with a nice meal (usually seafood) after submitting an assignment.
While providing a reward or incentive to your child for study may help in the short term (and be particularly helpful for younger students), there may also be a need to help them develop some clarity around long term goals. Highly motivated students often have a sense of purpose in their study and almost always have some direction (if only general) where they are headed. The students who achieved excellent results in the 2021 HSC had a specific goal and purpose for which they were working.
If your child lacks some goal clarity, it may be helpful to have a conversation around possible career directions post their time at the College. A good question to ask is 'If you had three hours, what would you want to do with it right now? Such a question may prompt areas of interest that could be explored further. For example, your child might say ‘play football’. Football may be a career prospect, but there are so many other options related to football: Exercise Science, Physiotherapy, Strength and Conditioning, Sports Psychology, Nutritionist to name a few.
To further explore career possibilities, there are some wonderful resources on the College Careers Website and I would encourage you to speak to the College Careers Adviser, Dr Bearlin.

Student Reception Opening Hours
From Monday,14 February Student Reception will be open from 7.30 am - 4.00 pm. After reviewing the flow of students and parents, we are seeking to add more support in the 7.30 am - 8.00 am time as this is often very busy. Parents and students who need assistance will still be able to use the Visitor Reception at the Northern end of Deakin after 4.00 pm. This will continue to be open until 4.30 pm.
Teaching and Learning 7-12
‘The first and most important educator in any child’s life - is their parent(s)’
Gabbie Stroud – Author of ‘Dear Teachers’ and ‘Dear Parents’
Parents play an important role in the education of their children. A parent/caregiver will often teach their children many important skills before they even begin their formal education. They teach their child morals, values, ethics, manners, social interaction and a whole range of other skills. As a College and as a Teacher we build upon this foundation that has been taught at home.
I personally have the privilege and honour of working alongside my husband and being the parent of three children. However, I find the job of parenting a lot harder than my job as a teacher. I am not the perfect parent (just ask my husband) and I never have claimed to be. Each of our children have brought unique challenges and differences, what technique/s worked with one child may not necessarily work with another, and I was not given a ‘parenting handbook’ as I left the hospital after having my firstborn. I have had to rely on my own family upbringing and background – often turning to my own parents for parenting advice (some taken and others not), I have had to rely on my network of other parents – whether they be friends from church, mums that I had met at a pre-pregnancy class or parents I have met along the way through Dance, sporting commitments or even neighbours. Parenting is hard… Parenting changes as children move through the various stages… and parenting can even be harder when working with blended and diverse family backgrounds and situations. Parenting is harder when two (or in some families) more adults are not on the same page about upbringing and parenting. In general, parenting is not easy!
For effective Teaching and Learning to occur at the College, we need the support from our student’s parents or immediate caregivers. Support given for our Homework Policy, support for our College Diary as our main source of communication, support for the Uniform Policy, support for College events and activities, support of College Distinctives and ethos, support of our Pastoral Care Team who care for your children during the College day when you’re not there, and support in terms of asking how your child is going and have they got any assignments/assessments to do. Support of the Christian ethos of the College and an understanding that we are passionate about Jesus and we enjoy sharing our personal testimony with students.
In 2022, I hope to strengthen the relationship we have with our parents to ensure we are educating your children in the best possible manner, to ensure they know they are cared for, to embrace learning and to ensure that they have an understanding of the importance of a having a relationship with God. I want the students to know that they should embrace all the opportunities that the College provides and that having a sense of Christian faith is really important in life beyond the College gates. I hope that in due course when COVID restrictions ease, we can have parents back on-site and enjoy together some of those learning experiences the College provides.
Mrs Kelly Evans
Director of Teaching & Learning 7-12
Passing on Messages or Forgotten Items
We have had an increasing number of parents calling or visiting Student
From time to time children forget hats, sports equipment, instruments etc. Just like adults, they need to learn that there are consequences when we forget things and that sometimes we can find other solutions. The Administration staff are very busy and do not have time to be dropping off items or run non-essential messages to students.
If children forget their lunch, we will try to pass this on to them if parents drop it in. The Canteen can provide a sandwich and a piece of fruit if needed. Parents will be notified that this has occurred and payment will be arranged.
Parents should never go to a classroom or playground to pass on items that have been forgotten or to give a student a message.
Phone calls between students and parents during College hours are not to happen unless permission has been given by a College staff member.
Parent volunteers should not seek to contact or visit their children while at the College. We value your contribution, however, we need to keep children in the areas they should be in and allow them to have their normal day at the College.
In summary, please be aware that the College Administration staff are very busy and that in most cases children will survive the day if they forget things.
Ms Jacqui Huxtable
Director of Teaching & Learning T-6

Round 1 MISA
The MISA Sport competition is back in full swing with Round 1 matches taking place this week. It was a strong opening round for our WAC sides with six wins from seven matches. Both OzTag teams secured maximum points with the Girls' side winning 6-1 thanks to some strong defence from Emma Windred and stand out performances by Keira Jobson and Rebecca Mills. It was a closer win for the Boys' team with a 5-3 scoreline against Mount Annan Christian College.
Our Junior Girls' Hockey side had a positive win against Broughton 2-1. Matilda Contre secured the first goal for the season and was well supported by Madison Eddie who also found the back of the net. It was also a big win first up for the Junior Girls' Indoor Cricket team against John Therry. Lauren O'Sullivan and Khloe Sutton started the innings with 24 runs, which was the highest partnership in our score of 76. Tight fielding kept the opposition to just 17 runs.
In Basketball our Senior Girls' team dominated their match with a significant 46-2 win over Broughton. In the Boys' match, it was a tough 25-46 loss.
Students and parents are also reminded that the MISA website is up and running. You can access all draws, results and competition tables at https://www.misaonline.org.au/

Performing Arts Ensembles
Get involved in the Performing Arts! Parents are encouraged to take a look at the table below which outlines our offerings for Performing Arts this year and discuss options for getting involved in the Performing Arts with their children.
All Secondary ensembles intend to commence in Week 2 (except for College Choir, commencement date TBA).
All Primary ensembles intend to commence in Week 3.
Children simply need to meet the criteria in the table and attend the rehearsal in order to participate (with the exception of Dance Company which requires an audition - see below).
Please note: We are still finalising arrangements for our College Choir and Primary Band. These ensembles will not start until further notice.
We are delighted to announce that we will be having our next College Musical in Term 4 this year, Shrek!
Secondary students in Years 7-11 who would like to be in the cast are invited to stay after hours on Monday, 14 February until 4.15 pm for an 'audition support' session during which time we will outline the available roles and expectations for those who choose to commit to the Musical. We will also work to familiarise the students with the Musical and to prepare them for auditions in the following weeks.
On Monday, 21 February we will hold auditions for students in Years 9-11, finishing at 4.15 pm.
On Monday, 28 February we will hold auditions for students in Years 7 & 8, finishing at 4.15 pm.
The remaining Monday afternoon rehearsals in Term 1 (2.45 pm - 4.15 pm) will be used to work with our lead cast members.
The whole Secondary cast will join rehearsal (2.45 pm - 4.15 pm) in Term 2.
The Primary cast (Years 5 & 6) will join us for rehearsals (2.45 pm - 4.15 pm) in Term 3.
The 4.15 pm finish time will allow students to catch the late bus or be collected promptly by a parent/carer. We may need to review this finishing time as we approach performances later in the year.
Thirlmere Festival of Steam
Mark your diaries! The Thirlmere Festival of Steam will be taking place on Sunday, 13 March and will feature some of our performers. Ensemble leaders will communicate details to their students. Please note that the format is slightly different to years past, and so there are different opportunities for student involvement compared to previous years.
Mrs Sarah Talbot
Performing Arts Coordinator T-12
A warm welcome to our Transition students and families. We are enjoying getting to know our students and we are so proud of the way they are settling into the classroom environment.
Students have been engaging in the PreLit Program. This is a skills-based, early literacy preparation program for children in the year before Kindergarten. It is designed to complement an investigative learning environment and provides children with a sound foundation for learning to read. So far we have been learning about words and syllables. Students have also started to learn letters and sounds. As part of this program, we will be focusing on a book each week to develop students’ oral language development and comprehension. This week we are reading ‘Aaaarrgghh Spider’.
This term we have an ‘Australian Animals’ theme in the classroom. We are learning about different animals that live in Australia and we will be decorating our classroom with some fabulous craft. Please make sure you keep an eye out for some photos on Seesaw.
We have also started our rotating groups. This is a great opportunity for students to experience a variety of literacy, fine-motor and mathematics-based activities that they may not naturally gravitate towards. Students work in small groups of four students.
Thank you for your support in packing yummy, healthy lunchboxes. Some of our teachers on duty have found it difficult to encourage students to eat their sandwiches at lunchtime, this is normal as the children settle into a new environment and routine. Please let us know if you are concerned about the amount your child is eating.
The students are really enjoying their Library lessons with Mrs Belusic. Please remember to put your child’s library bag in the College bag on their Library day.
Toto – Thursday
Tembo & Twiga – Friday
Thank you for your ongoing support and encouragement. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Year 7 Vaccinations
The NSW School Vaccination Program will be onsite at the College for Year 7 Vaccinations on Friday, 11 March. All students in Year 7 should have received their vaccination information pamphlet and parental consent form. Consent forms need to be returned to Student Reception. If your child does not return their vaccination form, they will not be vaccinated. Vaccinations for Year 7 include Human Papillomavirus (HPV), diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough).
Masks at the College
Following the Public Health Order, students in the Secondary Years are reminded that they need to be wearing masks indoors at the College. It is recommended that students in the Primary Years wear masks but not mandatory. Students are reminded that they need to bring their own masks to wear to the College each day. The College has purchased a number of masks, so if a student forgets their mask, they are able to pick one up from Student Reception. The first time a student forgets their mask it will be replaced for free but after that $1.00 per mask will be added to a student's fees. The aim of this process is to help students to be responsible for remembering to bring a mask to the College.
Rapid Antigen Home Testing
It has been great to hear stories from students of how whole families have been involved in the RAHT. Families have been quite creative to make the process go as smooth as possible and ensuring their children have completed the tests twice weekly as recommended.
We have College staff members/students and their families that have a range of medical conditions such as diabetes, asthma or being immunosuppressed for example. These medical conditions would pose a great risk to these individuals if they were infected with COVID.
We appreciate our College community and their efforts in keeping our College safe by following current NSW Health guidelines.

Secondary - 'MyTech'
How Will Devices Be Used?
Parents (particularly parents who are new to the College) often are intrigued by how the Secondary BYO devices are used in classes. Our staff currently use technology in a variety of ways to teach students. This ranges from setting specific tasks through to giving open-ended tasks where students are expected to use technology to solve a problem. Much of the content and many of the teaching activities will be delivered to students through our Learning Management System, ‘Canvas’.
It allows students to take greater ownership of their learning and provide them with the opportunity to collaborate, communicate and research on a global level in real-time, whether they are in the classroom with the teacher, or at home at their desk or kitchen table. It also provides an avenue for students that are physically away from the College for a variety of reasons, sickness or family business, to stay connected with the allocated work in most subject areas (provided that Internet access is available).
It was a blessing to have the facility of such devices and ‘Canvas’ during our two stints of Off-Campus Learning in recent years. Students were still able to complete and submit work, receive both written and verbal feedback and collaboratively work with other students despite being physically restricted to the confines of their homes.
The technology won’t replace the explicit teaching of concepts or the interaction between the teacher and the students. Its purpose is to enhance the method and practice of teaching, as we learn, teach and live in the 21st Century. It is expected that, where appropriate, devices will be used in most subjects. Therefore, it is vital that students bring their devices fully charged to the College every day.
Another area that intrigues parents and students with the implementation of ‘MyTech’ and BYO devices is … “What effect will the program have on exercise books?” Students will still continue to use exercise books as it is important that their handwriting skills are maintained. After all, the HSC written examinations held each year are still handwritten. The College will use a blended learning environment meaning that traditional classroom methods, such as the use of exercise books and textbooks, are combined with the Internet and digital media. Depending on the type of activity, the teacher will decide on the best tool to use and will clearly communicate this to the students. It is envisaged that the device will be an integral part of most, but not all lessons. Students will still be required to complete handwritten tasks, particularly in Years 11 and 12.
Please remember, if you have any specific questions regarding ‘MyTech’, please check the ‘MyTech’ section of the College website https://mytech.wac.nsw.edu.au/

Stage 6 Dance
On Tuesday, 15 February, Stage 6 Dance students attended a matinee performance of Callback at the Seymour Centre, which is a repertoire of exemplar HSC Dance performances, compositions and major study works from the 2021 cohort. There was also a Q&A session involved in this event which allowed students to gain an insight into the process of undertaking the HSC Dance course. Year 11 Dance students were able to reflect on the value and effect of a Dance production and Year 12 Dance students took away inspiration and key points of advice for their own HSC Dance works.
