Dear Parents

The Corpus Christi College Community Centre was blessed by Fr Jeronimo and opened by CEO Executive Director Dr Tim McDonald last Friday, on the day we celebrate Corpus Christi Day. The students were impeccably well-mannered and respectful during Mass, and celebrated the day with much gusto! I will report on funds raised in the next copy of the e-News.


With the opening of the Community Centre now concluded, we are well underway planning for the Performing Arts Centre, which will house large Drama and Dance workshops, a Rehearsal studio, refurbished Music practice rooms, and an open learning area, all located in the old gymnasium, a project to be completed by early Term One 2017. The current James Nestor Auditorium will accommodate Music facilities amongst other plans we have for this space. Planning is also underway for a 400 seat theatre to be built on the northern side of the old gymnasium. This will necessitate the building of a staff car park and a shed in an alternative location. More details will be forthcoming in future newsletters.

Artworks at Corpus

We continue to purchase artwork for the College and it would be remiss if I didn’t recognise the Visual Arts department – Ms Gaby Fabris, Mrs Julie Pannell and Mrs Katie-Anne Kennedy s efforts - in producing beautiful Corpus crosses and advising me on the ongoing development of art through the College grounds and buildings.


We continue to purchase art works for the College. Most recently, two icons (2D ancient formed religious paintings) were purchased from the artist Angela King, one on the Pieta (depicting the Virgin Mary cradling the dead body of Jesus) which will be located in the Chapel, the other a group of two Icons entitled the annunciation to be located in the Sadler Centre.

One couldn t help but notice the artwork which forms part of the Community Centre. This is a local government requirement for all building projects. In the Melville City Precinct where the cost of development exceeds $1 million, we are required to provide public art to the value of 1% of the cost of development.

The objectives of the public artwork is to:

  • Contribute to a sense of place through the provision of public art which provides an interpretation and expression of the local area’s natural, physical, cultural and social values
  • Enhance public enjoyment and understanding of places through the integration of art into developments
  • Add to the appearance, vibrancy, character and amenity of developments and their surrounding environment
  • Create local landmarks
  • Provide increased public exposure to, and understanding of, public art.

Public Art is a work that is created by an artist and is sited in a visually accessible public location. There are special requirements regarding the artists, such as they have to be a person who has a Bachelor s Degree or Diploma in visual arts or any similar field; earn more than 50% of their income from art related activities; and have a history of exhibiting their own original artwork at reputable art galleries, for an instance.

After an extensive search for an accomplished artist to provide the artwork for Corpus Christi College, Gaby and Julie recommended some of the work exhibited by local artists, including Jason Hirst s artwork which can be seen throughout WA, including Perth s new children s hospital, Community Centres at the City of Stirling and Roebourne, Karratha Leisure Centre, and various schools such as Christchurch Grammar School, Canning Vale College and Comet Bay College.

Jason has produced a vibrant and youthful piece of art which reflects our College ethos, our connectedness in community through the House system and through sport. A lovely new task for the induction of Year 7s – connecting the House crests with their mottos, reflected on both sides of the sculpture.

Staff and Student matters

As Mrs Kathy Davey will be on leave from next Friday 24 June until Friday 29 July, I wish to notify the community that Mrs Terri Seers will be the Acting Head of Vocation and Transition Services for this period of time, whilst still conducting her duties as the Workplace Learning Coordinator.

There are a number of changes to the Year 10 Curriculum offerings for 2017 as a result of the implementation of the WA Curriculum by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA). Parents of current Year 9 students would be aware that we have postponed the Year 10 2017 Parent Information Evening until our programme has been finalised.

There are changes to the WACE ATAR and General Course rules implemented fully in 2016 which were covered at the various Parent Information Evenings last year and in Term One, 2016. Students cannot easily change from one semester to another, making course selection at Year 11 an important decision which should be final for the majority of students. Grades received in Semester One of Year 10 are of heightened performance. My heart sinks when I see students struggling at Year 11 level and who cannot change subjects because it is simply too late.

I urge parents to ensure they attend the subject selection evenings coming up.

Finally, the Year 11 Dinner Dance is being held at the Fremantle Sailing Club next week. I look forward to seeing our students looking quite resplendent, enjoying each other’s company on the evening.

Best wishes and God bless.

Mrs Caroline

[accordion_item title="Acknowledgement of Academic Excellence Program Students" accordion="accordion"]

This week during Year Assemblies we acknowledged all students who have been identified as academically able.

At the beginning of the year, students with high ability were identified using subjective and objective measures. These included, general ability tests, student performance, teacher and parent nominations.

Approximately 10% of students were identified as academically able and were selected to take part in the Academic Excellence Program. All new students were presented with a badge.

Below is a list of all Year 7-9 members of the Academic Excellence Program:

Annabel Biscotto and I have had an extraordinary insight into the sociological reasoning behind ordinary decision-making, specifically in teenagers.

We are in the midst of conducting a sociology experiment, tested on our fellow students, in which we hypothesised the following statement: Middle school females are most likely to return a dropped coin. This experiment includes dropping a coin on the floor and analysing who either picks it up, keeps it or ignores it. The results are interesting. We have had the pleasure of being mentored by Bethia, who is a 3rd year Law student at Murdoch, and is a Student Ambassador. She has assisted us with various aspects of our project, specifically the research component. She has been an amazing help to us and has given us aid, assistance and tips to allow our project to achieve its maximum capability.

We plan to create a website and a report to display our findings, and we look forward to the final outcome of our project!

In order to accommodate the requirements of the new West Australian Curriculum, the College is currently reviewing it’s Year 10 timetable structure and course offerings. Therefore the Year 9 to 10 parent information evening has been postponed till Term Three.

Julie Pannell

Art Teacher

Annabel Biscotto has won the Year 9 Award at 2016 Attwell Art Gallery Awards.

With a focus on the Reflection attribute from The Corpus Christi College Learner Profile, students had to create innovative solutions to construction problems of 3D forms.

Annabel looked at the Fauvist artist, Henri Matisse and the abstraction and simplification of forms. Annabel s artwork used recycled cardboard to create a 3D mask of a character from Hairspray the musical. The project was extended to create a Tableau Vivant of the mask being worn. The result is a highly innovative and creative approach to art and design.

More Award winners and their respective prizes are listed in Corpus General News.


[accordion_item title="The Bishops Religious Literacy Assessment 2016" accordion="accordion"]

At the request of the Western Australian Bishops, Year 3, Year 5 and Year 9 students in Catholic schools across Western Australia will take part in The Bishops Religious Literacy Assessment (BRLA) from the week commencing Monday 25 July. For Year 9 students at Corpus Christi, the BRLA will be held on the morning of 27 July. The assessment will be accessible to students only online.

The Nature and Role of the BRLA

The Bishops Religious Literacy Assessment is a large-scale, standardised assessment program that consists of a series of Religious Education (RE) assessments. The purpose of the BRLA is to measure student learning of the content in the RE curriculum. The test items in the BRLA are developed and mostly marked by the Office of Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA). Formal school and student reports are produced by the CEWA for students in Year 5 and Year 9.

The BRLA provides a point in time snapshot of student performance in RE. Students knowledge and understanding of the content of the RE curriculum is assessed using a combination of multiple choice, short and extended response items. Students faith is not assessed. The use of the BRLA complements the school based assessment programs in RE.

Please contact your child s teacher if you have any inquiries regarding the administration of The Bishops Religious Literacy Assessment 2016.

[accordion_item title="Year 10-11 Subject Expo" accordion="accordion"]

Students commencing Year 11 in 2016 are beginning a journey which will take them beyond school to work or one of a range of post school tertiary destinations. The subjects a student chooses in Year 11 are intended to be studied over a two year period and will help direct them towards on of these destinations.

A reminder that the Year 10-11 subject selection handbook is available on the Year 10 portal for both parents and students. Students should currently be considering their subject options and formulating any questions they wish to ask their teachers.

On Wednesday 29 June, we will hold our Year 10-11 subject expo in the David Heath Centre (Old College Gymnasium) . Students will be given the opportunity during a pastoral care period to visit the expo and ask questions of the the staff in each department regarding subject selection for Year 11. I will also be presenting to parents on WACE requirements, generating an ATAR, VET courses and the subject selection process.

The expo will open to parents from 6 to 7pm that evening. Parents are encouraged to attend to see for themselves the subject offerings and pathways offered in Year 11 and ask any questions of the relevant Heads of Learning Area who will all be in attendance.

The expo will conclude with a presentation on the transition from Year 10 to 11 at 7pm in the College Hall.

The Heads of Learning area, Mr Scali and I look forward to speaking with you on the evening.

The Lenzarini Bros from Golden Ravioli, Romany House in Fitzgerald Street Perth have kindly accepted to assist in our fundraising efforts towards the Cambodian Immersion. In the 1950 s four Italian brothers set out on a journey: a journey that would take them away from their homeland to a new home, Australia. The brothers opened the now famous Romany Restaurant in 1958 and in 1964 introduced their own range of pasta to the public of Perth, and so, Golden Ravioli was born!

[accordion_item title="ACC Cross Country Report" accordion="accordion"]


On Thursday 2 June one hundred of Corpus finest runners travelled to Perry Lakes Reserve to compete at the ACC Cross Country Carnival. There were 60 schools competing bringing over 3,500 competitors together in the largest meet of of it s type in the State. Corpus runners revelled in the near perfect conditions, consistently performing above and beyond expectation.

As the girls age category results were read during presentations we began to realise that our performance goal of a top 5 finish, in the Overall Combined rankings, was a real possibility. Imagine our elation when it was announced that Corpus finished second in the Overall Combined Aggregate and 1st in the Girls Aggregate. Not since the early 1990 s had Corpus enjoyed this level of success. The coaches were extremely proud of the positive attitude and willingness of our athletes to push outside their comfort zone.

2nd in the U13 Girls

5th in the U13 Boys

See into your future - one with the Arts in mind is a good choice for your career path, as it sets you ready for tomorrow s changing world.

We are moving towards a new development in resourcing the Arts at Corpus Christi College. These are exciting times for the development and creativity of every student at the College. With improvement in quality in every subject in the Arts and the increased rigour that comes with a new curriculum, the time has never been better to consider an arts subject.

In considering your subject choices, there is some important and often overlooked statistical reasons for including an arts subject that improve your future employment chances.

  • The global marketplace requires candidates to compete with others world wide for roles and markets, particularly in the computer games, animation and visual effects sectors. (Source: Australian Interactive Media Industry Association)
  • There are over 20,000 different career pathways associated within and associated to the Arts Industry-Including Entertainment Law and Arts Management.
  • The market needs the creative genius: creative types are more in demand, but the corporate world’hasn t yet learned how to manage them.
  • If you can show you are creative and can fit into a team you will have a distinct advantage in the jobs market. (Source:Ibid)
  • There are a wide range of skills covered in Arts courses, most of these compliment your other subjects
  • Statistically Arts candidates who complete ATAR have their Arts Subject as their highest scoring WACE -last year alone we had 100% of Dance students with their Arts Subject as their first choice.
  • Your chances of success are increased by the way an Arts subject is assessed, there is often an even split between written and practical, thus making it easier to fit in with your strengths.
  • In the last industry census in WA over 576,000 people where employed in primary Arts jobs alone. This does not include Jobs associated within the arts field, for example, licensing.

There is no doubt that our new building and the development of our Arts facilities will increase our ability to offer an extensive programme that will extend opportunity to all. There has never been a better time to choose an arts subject.

All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up. - Pablo Picasso

We would like to welcome Leone Gatt to Corpus Dance for the remainder to Term Two. Leone will be replacing Mrs Spark this term and we wish to thank her for coming on board.

We are delighted to announce our new Dance Teacher for semester 2 2016 – Lauchlan Bain. We are very excited about Lauchlan joining Dance and know that he is going to be a valuable member of the Arts team and fabulous for our students

Lauchlan Bain - Bio

Lauchlan was born and bred in Perth, Western Australia, where his love of performing arts was first started and was cultivated from a young age. He began performing arts training across the board as a singer, dancer, actor and aerialist until his successful entrance into tertiary performing arts training.

As a graduate of the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) in Dance and Music Theatre, Lauchlan has been seen around Perth and Australia as a theatre performer (CATS, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and Fame) as well as in television and film (Cloudstreet, HBF, and RAC). This success saw Lauchlan move to London to take a role as a teacher at the acclaimed Pineapple Dance Studios, lecturing in contemporary, ballet, and theatre jazz, where he also performed across the UK as both a singer, dancer and actor. Highlights from his time in the UK include working with Sony Music Group UK as a singer and sessional artist, performing the carol Silent Night on Good Morning (ITV), as well as touring with international recording artists as a dancer.

Since returning to Perth, Lauchlan has qualified as a high school teacher (Graduate Diploma Education – ECU) and performed in Australia in The Mikado, The Sound of Music, The Phantom of the Opera and was Will Parker in Oklahoma.

Recently, Lauchlan is better known for his choreographic endeavors, choreographing for Presbyterian Ladies College, St Mary s Anglican Girls School, John Forrest Secondary College and ICW Productions Oliver. Lauchlan is best known for his commitment to his artistic endeavors, both as an artist and an educator, and is recognizable for his involvement in the Perth dance and theatre scene, as both talent and choreographer.

He looks forward to joining the Corpus Christi Catholic College staff cohort, and continuing his career in a superb educational institution.

The Construction Training Fund (CTF) is proud to sponsor the Try a Trade program and is delivering the program to your Corpus Christi College in 2016.

The program is available to students currently in Years 9 and 10 only with a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 16 students per course.

Recently, former teacher and current relief teacher, Mr Mike Penhaligon accompanied thirteen Year 10 students in the course recently. The students were exposed to three Trades, Carpentry, Bricklaying and Tiling. It was an intensive three day course that certainly challenged them all. It took them out of their comfort zone and challenged their observation skills as well as their ability to stick at a task. All students involved showed determination and commitment to the tasks involved.

For two of them in particular it reinforced their intention to become a Carpenter and a Bricklayer respectively, proving without doubt and they will achieve their goal of attaining Apprenticeships in the future.
