Dear Parents

Members of the Leadership Team were fortunate to join more than 1400 delegates in attending the National Catholic Education Commission (NCEC) Conference, hosted by CEWA in Perth. The conference highlighted Catholic education and its importance on the national stage. Executive Director Dr Tim McDonald commented At the end of an inspiring term for Catholic Education in Western Australia, I am filled with gratitude for the remarkable commitment to learning, development and faith formation that is so evident in our schools and communities. It was truly wonderful and humbling to hear Cardinal Rodriguez Maradiaga speak of Catholic Education in Australia as being among the best Catholic school systems in the world. I am proud to share that Cardinal Maradiaga also acknowledged, with immense admiration and thanks, the work of Catholic Education in Western Australia.

Catholic schools exist to provide a distinctly Catholic education for children enrolled in them. We were reminded an education which sidelines God is incomplete. Parents who enrol their child at Corpus Christi College will often note this when comparing the education received in our school compared to good, secular schools. God prefers to encounter with us, He wants to be known to us through Jesus Christ. This is the Catholic world view that humanity is good, it s good to be alive, a life affirming message. Animated with the spirit of living life fully, a forgiving and loving message, our Retreat programs across all Years stress the importance of this message, the reason why they are a compulsory part of our educational programme.

Catholic schools promote justice to all, with due consideration for the diversity of those who are culturally, socially, physically, intellectually, financially, emotionally or spiritually disadvantaged. As part of the NCEC Conference, Year 10 and Year 11 students from Catholic schools all over WA gathered at Notre Dame University to explore their obligations as developing leaders in a society envisioned by God. Our Year 11 students are preparing to go to Mulan in the Eastern Kimberley region to embrace two-way learning where they will learn about Aboriginal culture, as well as contribute to the community during their immersion experience. Inter-cultural understanding is a key goal, developing a deeper mutual respect for Aboriginal people. Our hope is that our students will promote justice for all people in our community.

This semester was filled with countless stories of student achievement, innovative teaching and learning approaches, and inspiring initiatives. Each copy of the e-News we recounted a number of these good news stories. Our students continue to embrace the wide range of opportunities afforded them. Again, I recount some of the activities our students are involved in.

More than 40 students flew out to New Zealand last Saturday to participate in a major Music Festival for students in Rotorua. Whilst there, our students performed at St Mary s Catholic School. The principal emailed me this week:

Our school had the privilege of having the young men and women from your school with us today. They sang, danced and played their instruments to the delight of our children at St Mary’s here in Rotorua. Your students performed beautifully and we all thoroughly enjoyed their concert. What also really impressed me was the way the group interacted with our young students during the concert and out in the playground prior to the concert. Great ambassadors for Corpus Christi.

Approximately 70 students were also involved in the Corpus Christi Public Speaking Competition during the week, an event coordinated by English teacher Mrs Noreen Stevenson. Noreen was supported by teachers and coaches Mrs Manuela Piscetek, Mr Jamie Clarke and Mr Adrian Richmond. There were no less than six former students who adjudicated and with more than 100 parents and friends, teachers and leaders in attendance. This was testimony to the strength of the College community in support of our students.

On Monday, the College was officially presented with our framed Apple Distinguished School certificate and banner for 2016-2017 by representatives of Apple Education, an acknowledgement of the leadership of the College supported by Director of Learning Technologies Mr Trevor Galbraith. The reason for pursuing this award is its alignment to our mission as a Catholic school to be the best we can be. Even Pope Francis has been articulating a vision that challenges his Church to re-imagine itself in the twenty-first century. As Principals, we too must re-imagine our schools in this century, for the sake of our students, for the future of a world which needs new solutions to problems – to protect the environment and the world s resources, to resolve poverty and the unequal distribution of resources, new ways to resolve conflicts, and to more humanely address the large movement of people across the earth in search of a better future for them and their children. Industrial forms of education will simply not do anymore. Our focus is using technology to enable us to re-imagine Corpus Christi College for the sake of our students and their future.

Last Friday, our Year 11 students looked quite resplendent at the Annual Dinner Dance held at the Fremantle Sailing Club. Head of Year Mr Michael Rathmann and the Homeroom teachers prepared their students well, an important step towards the penultimate social event, the Year 12 College Ball in January. I was proud of our students conduct, their social graces and good manners they exhibited on the night, as they enter their final term as Year 11 students.

These were just a few of the activities our students were involved in, during the past fortnight.

Australian Federal Election
With the enormity of the wash-up over the result of the Brexit referendum in the UK so evident, there is no more poignant message about the importance of exercising our democratic rights by voting in the National elections. This will also be a momentous occasion as a number of Year 12 students will be voting for the first time.

In the lead-up to the July 2 Federal election, the National Catholic Education Commission (NCEC) sent a series of questions to the Coalition and the Australian Labor Party, providing the parties with the opportunity to outline how their policies will support students and families in Australian schools, including Catholic schools. Their recently received responses are available at the following link: http://www.schoolfundingfacts.com/NCEC%20Party%20Responses%202016.pdf

Staffing Matters
After being at Corpus Christi College since 1983, the year we were founded, Mr Peter Thomson has decided to retire. We hope to have an opportunity to acknowledge Mr Thomson at a future assembly. Mr Peter Hackett retires after more than 12 years service to the College, having held the Head of Mathematics role for eight years during this period. Mr Trevor Galbraith leaves Corpus Christi College again, having served more than 20 years in total at the College. As Director of Learning Technologies, Mr Galbraith has assisted me in facilitating ongoing changes to educational programs at the College, challenged us to head towards the 21st century focused on students becoming more creative, more innovative, flexible and adaptive, able to meet headlong the challenges of the 21st century. Together, these three experienced teachers and leaders have a combined total of more than 66 years of teaching at the College, a huge contribution to thousands of students over the course of these years.

Other staff who are leaving us after covering staff on leave include Health and Physical Education teacher Ms Laura Birkhead, who is returning to the UK to marry and re-settle, Languages teacher Ms Francesca Cardoni, Religious Education teacher Mr Paddy McCarthy and Teaching Assistant Ms Claire McDonnell. We are also grateful to Dance Teacher Ms Leone Gatt who covered Mrs Chanelle Spark s classes for the last three weeks.

We wish staff who are on leave, all the best: Mr Ian Bean on leave during Semester Two, whilst Mrs Deborah Santaromita, Mr Russell Scanlon, and Mrs Lesley McAuliffe are all on leave in Term Three.

The Final Word
High achieving students were acknowledged and presented to the community at the Whole School Assembly last Tuesday. A complete list of those who received Academic Awards and Colours Awards are included in this e-News. I congratulate these students for their dedication and commitment to their studies, which has contributed to their high achievement.

For all parents, students and staff, please have a wonderful winter holiday break and return refreshed and ready for the challenges and opportunities that will form part of Term Three. Students will commence Term Three on Tuesday 19 July, after staff participate in a Professional Learning Catholic Identity Day, facilitated by Dominican Sister Margaret Scharff.

Best wishes and God bless.

Head of Languages

What an excellent day of language, culture and food. We found out this day that LANGUAGES is the food for the body, the mind and the soul. The students took part in activities where they were able to practice their language skills in the topics they are currently studying.

Students were then able to enjoy the company of their peers and also enjoy traditional fare for examples the Italian students had Pizza and Pasta. French students enjoyed crepes and tart and the Indonesian students had rice, noodles, chicken, meat and fish all cooked Indonesian style.

The students were excellent ambassadors for the college and were well behaved and extremely well presented in their winter uniforms. The Language Learning Area would like to thank the College for allowing the students to take part in such an important activity for the language students where they can experience the use of the language in a correct environment and experience its culture.

[accordion_item title="Academic Excellence Extension Program - Mural of the World" accordion="accordion"]

Screen Shot 2016-06-30 at 12.46.53 pmA02 (art room) has been our home for the past 4 weeks, as Julyan Tan, Amy Riordan and myself have been working towards the completion of our AEEP project, which is a mural of the world, from a cultural perspective.

Our project is a different take on the world - it has no political border, but only displays the cultural links between continents. We are showing how one continent may have a different culture to another, but are linked in more ways than one. The mural has each continent painted across 5 segmented boards. Each continent is painted using that continent’s tradition and native visual art form/s.

Being a group consisting of different nationalities and cultures (Asian, African and European), we hope that the viewer of our painting can knock down all barriers in their life relating to cultural differences and see that we are all one and that the world is a better place without conflict between continents.

We are still unsure on how to fully present out mural, but we look forward to displaying our final product.

Year 8 Pastoral Day
Mr Scott Connery
Head of Year 8

Screen Shot 2016-06-30 at 12.48.19 pmToday we welcomed Sergeant Trimble from the Engagement Unit, Rockingham Police Station to impart some very important information on Cyber Safety and Digital Awareness.

ThinkUKnow is a free, evidence-based cyber safety program that provides accessible cyber safety education to parents, carers and teachers through schools and organisations across Australia. ThinkUKnow uses a network of trained law enforcement members and accredited volunteers from our program partner organisations to deliver the cyber safety education presentations nationwide.

For more information click ThinkUKnow for parents and carers. For the youth ThinkUKnow Youth Or visit the Year 8 portal and read the May newsletter.

Originally developed in the United Kingdom by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre, ThinkUKnow Australia was established by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) in 2009.

ThinkUKnow is a partnership between Microsoft Australia, Datacom and the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, and is delivered in collaboration with the New South Wales Police Force, Northern Territory Police, Queensland Police Service, South Australia Police, Tasmania Police, Western Australia Police and Neighbourhood Watch Australasia.

The message from this afternoon s presentation was simple, rubbish going in, rubbish going out. Meaning that should you involve yourself with inappropriate behavior and material online then you yourself will become part of that inappropriate behaviour and material online.

[accordion_item title="College Colours and Senior School Award Winners" accordion="accordion"]

Congratulations to the following students who were recipients of College Colours at the recent Whole School Assembly.

College Colours are a significant recognition, given only to students who have dedicated their time and effort to an extra-curricular area of College life over many years, succeeding in making the College stronger in their specialty area through their ongoing efforts.

Congratulations also to the recipients of awards for outstanding Academic Achievement in Semester One.




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

On Wednesday afternoon and evening both students and parents were involved with the successful Year 10-11 Subject Expo. Interested students and parents spent time working closely with all the Heads of Learning Area to discuss subject options and future pathways for the students who will be beginning Year 11 in 2017. The evening concluded with a presentation on the subject selection process for 2017, which will commence in the Term 2 holidays.

A reminder that subject selection for Year 11 2017 is intended to set students on a pathway for success. Students should only enrol in courses for which they have met the prerequisite. Pursuit of an ATAR pathway which is not fitting with a student’s past academic achievements and study habits can lead to difficulties in achieving the WACE.

The Subject Selection Online (SSO) website will be open to students shortly. Students will receive their passwords via email in the second week of the holidays.


[accordion_item title="Year 11 Dinner Dance" accordion="accordion"]

Last Friday evening I had the pleasure of attending the Year 11 dinner dance. The theme was Midnight in Paris and the Fremantle Sailing Club ballroom looked absolutely spectacular with the candle lit tables, French language menus, silent foreign movies projected onto the walls and a giant replica Eiffel Tower really setting the scene. A credit to the dinner dance organising committee.

All students looked great in their dinner-wear and conducted themselves in a manner entirely appropriate for a formal event such as the dinner dance. In an often stressful and busy end to the term, it was wonderful to see the students relax and enjoy themselves for an evening. Sometimes the best remedy for a stressful school term is to simply dance the night away!

While all students were extremely well presented, congratulations to Yew Tan and Brittany Wassell who were voted Best Dressed male and female at the Dinner Dance.

Finally, Thanks to Mr Michael Rathmann and the attending staff who make formal events like this possible.


[accordion_item title="Year 10 Retreat" accordion="accordion"]

On Friday the Year 10s returned from their three day Retreat. Staff and students spent time away from the usual day-to-day stresses of school life and immersed themselves in a new and challenging environment.

Each of the 3 days had a different theme, all imperative to the pastoral and spiritual growth of the Year 10s.

  • Day 1 – Service
  • Day 2 –Leadership
  • Day 3 – Reflection
  • The retreat experience is an integral part of the Religious Education curriculum and an essential part of the life of the students at the College. It provides possibilities for enhancing the spirituality of students in ways different from, but complementary to, those of the classroom and school environment. Most importantly, the retreat is an opportunity for students to remove themselves from the stresses of a busy school term and focus inwards for a brief few days.

    Specifically the Year 10 retreat is outstanding preparation for the essential growth experiences which form the Year 11 and 12 retreats. Thanks to Mr Scali, Miss Thomas and Ms Chong who planned and supervised the retreat as well as all the staff who gave up their days and evenings to assist in the pastoral growth of our senior students.

    [accordion_item title="See into your future, Consider the Arts" accordion="accordion"]

    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.
    • (/ul>

      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
