Dear Parents,

There is always cause for celebration! Week Nine was quite a week!

  • Year 12 leaders Benjamin Ring and Isobel Christian represented ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ cast and crew, and received a Shield for Drama at the Catholic Performing Arts Festival Final Concert last Monday night, on behalf of the College
  • The Celebrating Academic Excellence Evening was coordinated by Mrs Filipa Carvalho, with a large number of staff, students and parents attending last Monday night in the Sadler Centre. Seventy seven students were presented with badges and certificates after their involvement in the AEP (Academic Excellence Programme) after showcasing their projects
  • Academic excellence was also acknowledged when students from Years 7 to 10 received Subject Awards at the Whole School Assembly
  • As part of the Act-Belong-Commit Healthy School Programme, College Counsellors Mrs Rachel Goodchild and Mrs Luisa Rossi ran the inaugural Healthy Lunch hour last Thursday. It was wonderful to see staff and more than 300 students commit to participate in a range of activities, and access information about a range of local support agencies, with staff and students mingling in the Mater Christi Avenue on a brilliant, sunny day
  • Last Thursday night, we hosted the Parish Priests’ Zone meeting in our staffroom, a wonderful opportunity for us to speak of the importance of the presence of parish priests in our school
  • Head of Year 11 Mr Simon Messer was joined by a wonderful group of Homeroom teachers, having organised the Year 11 Dinner Dance last Friday night. The students looked quite resplendent on the night which was held at the Fremantle Sailing Club.

Many staff made these events possible, along with the support of parents. However, in this instance I would like to acknowledge the unsung heroes, staff such as Mr David Moyle and the ICT team, including Photographer Mr Yun Chen, Corpus Communications Mr Cam Allen, Head of Music Mr David Harries, Sound Technician Mr Evan Georgopolous, Property Manager Mr Chris Carbone and the maintenance and gardening team, Cafeteria Manager Mrs Jo Court and the Cafeteria team, and our Administration teams, who were all involved in many of these and other College events.

Whilst referring to special events, I take this opportunity to congratulate Principal Ms Carmel Costin and the Yidarra Catholic Primary School as they celebrate their 30th year with a Mass and Open Day this Thursday.

ACC A Division Athletics Carnival
I congratulate Acting Sports Coordinator Ms Wendy Quint and the Health and Physical Education Learning Area for leading our ACC Athletics Team to fifth place at the A Division ACC Athletics Carnival held at the State Athletics Stadium, last Wednesday, behind Sacred Heart College, John Septimus Roe, Chisholm and All Saints College. Other schools to compete in the A Division competition included Prendiville Catholic College, Peter Moyes Anglican Community School, Mercedes College and CBC Fremantle.

There were some incredible performances during the day, no less the Year 7 girls who were quite formidable. With a great deal of movement of schools between A and B Divisions in ACC Athletics, we are committed to continue competing together as a strong, united team, working hard for each other, an ongoing theme for Corpus sporting teams during the year. To the team of athletes who ran, jumped and threw last Wednesday, I say: ‘Well done!’

Congratulations In the last two College Assemblies of the term, we will have recognised a large number of students who have achieved Awards in a number of fields. For the first e-News next term, we will focus on recognising the accomplishments of many of our wonderful students who were acknowledged late in Term Three, including our Year 11 students who have been selected to form the 2016 Prefect Committee. We will see current Head Girl Rebekah-Anne Craggs and Head Boy Samuel LaMacchia conducting a formal handover to 2016 Head Girl Cassandra Rauh and Head Boy, Andrew Silveira at the end of Term Assembly on Thursday morning.

Staff Movements
I take this opportunity to farewell Indonesian teacher Mr Neil Geuer, who is retiring this term after almost two years at the College, and graduate teacher Ms Emma Van Woerden, who has covered a number of Religious Education classes in the past term. At either end of their careers, both have been wonderful teachers, having embraced the culture and life of the College. We wish them all the very best.

Next term, Mrs Deborah Middleton, Mr Damian Scali and Mr William O’Callaghan will be on leave. One of the challenges of attracting experienced staff from other Catholic schools is when they access their Long Service Leave entitlement. We wish them all a well-earned rest.

Ms Jennifer Overend has accepted the role as Head of Year Ten for Term Four and Ms Wendy Quint, the Head of VET and Transition Services.

I take this opportunity to thank Mrs Silvana Vicoli who embraced the challenges as our Deputy Principal Ministry this term, whilst Ms Marian Lavelle undertook the role as Head of Religious Education and Mr Isaac Ramshaw, the role of Christian Service Learning Coordinator, also for this term.

Year 12 Trial WACE and WACE Practical Examinations
Please keep in mind many of our Year 12 students who will be focussed on their studies and will sit for their trial WACE Examinations in the second week of the holidays. A number of students have already commenced their WACE Practical Examinations which will continue into the first week of the holidays.

Year 11 students will also be studying for their examinations which commence on the first week in Term Four as they complete their Year 11 courses.

These students will be in our thoughts and prayers in the coming weeks.

AFL Preliminary Finals
As both our WA football teams are in Preliminary Finals with a possible Derby Grand Final, I am grateful these events are being held during the holidays! I wonder whether a Dockers or Eagles flag will be flying at the front of the College at the beginning of next term?

Irrespective, please have a safe and restful holiday with your families, returning on Monday 12 October, all energised and ready to welcome the final term in our academic year. In terms of your calendar, parents are asked to please note the next P and F Meeting is scheduled for the first Tuesday of Term Four on 13 October at 7.30pm, in the College staffroom.

Best wishes and God bless.

[accordion_item title="Celebrating Excellence" accordion="accordion"]

On Monday 14 September, over 300 parents and students attended the Celebrating Excellence evening. As parents, friends and staff arrived, they were able to view the unique and diverse range of thirty two projects created by the fifty six students who have been taking part in the Academic Excellence Extension Programme (AEEP) each Tuesday between 7.30am and 8.30am during Terms 2 and 3. Students worked individually or collaboratively, on a long term project of their choice.

Projects included short stories, scientific reports, monologues, art work, poems, computer games, a report on the renaissance period to name a few.

Congratulations to Sean Gorman, Finnian Arrigan, Owen Thamrin and Cameron Clark, for receiving first place for their 3D game trailer. Second place went to Libby Hart for her natural paints and art work and third place along with the People’s Choice Award were secured by Annabel Biscotto and Tiana Inman for their ‘Different Point of View’ photography website.

The formal component of the evening involved the presentation of awards and badges to the seventy seven students who were selected for the Academic Excellence Progamme (AEP) at the beginning of the year, along with the presentation of certificates to the fifty six students who participated in the AEEP and the fifty three Year 5 and 6 students who took part in the Academic Excellence Programme for Primary School students. Primary school students selected to partake in one of the three programs offered at the College: Investigating Science, CoderDojo and Robotics. This program ran during Term 3 for 5 weeks.

On behalf of the College, we would like to thank Mr Andrew Stevenson, Ms Janelle Dixon and Mrs Julie Galbraith who had the difficult task of judging the projects. I would like to thank Mr James Dove, Mrs Elaine Liew, Mr Johnny Ho and Mrs Karen Rourke for the time and guidance they gave students during the AEEP.

Several students performed musical items throughout the evening. Many thanks to Mr David Harries for preparing the students for the evening. In addition, we thank Mr Andrew Stevenson, an ex-student from Corpus Christi College, for delivering an inspirational speech to the students. Finally, I would like to thank all the staff members who made this evening possible.

Take action to solve climate change!

AYCC, in partnership with Melville and Fremantle councils, recently held a sustainability summit.

Two of our students joined other high school students from Perth at the two day sustainability summit. They were able to hear from inspiring speakers, learn about climate change, meet other young change makers and build skills to run sustainability campaigns in our school and community.

A report from our students
At the start of the day, we played some team games to get to know some of the other students. We then listened to some people talk about what climate change was, how it affected us, and what we can do to stop it. In my opinion, this was the most interesting part of the day because the speaker made it engaging and informative at the same time.

After recess, we were put into groups and we looked at how we could influence change and the different ways people influence change (locally, nationally and globally). During this session, we looked at campaigning and the different ways we could introduce sustainability into our lives.

After we took a lunch break, we got into groups with our schools and looked at how our school is sustainable and ways we could improve. We also got with other students from different schools to compare our schools in terms of sustainability.

Overall, it was a very informative day. Thank you again for the opportunity as we definitely did get a lot out of the day.

2015 Catholic Social Justice Statement from the Australian Catholic Bishops on justice for refugees and asylum seekers is very timely. The Bishops statement advocates for people who have sought protection, not in Europe, but in Australia. The Bishops are concerned with what it takes. Their statement describes and criticises strongly the way in which people who seek protection in Australia are vilified and treated.

GOSPEL CONNECTIONS ONLINE:

And Jesus Said, “Chill Out!”

For several years the religious community in which I lived invited our neighbours to join us monthly for an hour of quiet meditation and prayer in our small chapel. The congregation usually included fifteen to fifty young people from our school.

Over pizza after the prayer, the young people would often tell me how much the meditation helped relieve the stress caused by school, sports, friends and family. So I was happy they escaped for an hour with us.

And that’s what Jesus wants for his disciples in this week’s Gospel. They’ve just come back from doing his work. They could keep working; there were plenty of people who needed help. But Jesus says, “Come away … and rest.”

In other words, take time to chill out. Authentic discipleship requires downtime for prayer, laughs, naps and talk about life.

Our society seems to get busier and busier. We seem to have more responsibilities and less time to relax. But life gets more complicated, more painful, less rewarding and less Christian when it gets too busy.

Overworked people pray less, which means they lose God’s guidance. Overworked people lose their patience more quickly, which makes it easy to snap at friends or family and difficult to forgive. Overworked people think less thoroughly and listen less often, which makes it easy to make bad decisions.

So make sure you get away. Life is about building relationships, not completing tasks. Given the pressure in our society to stay busy, you might even have to schedule downtime. Then take it. God wants it for you.

Take time with friends. Laugh. Hang out. Take naps. Build in ten-minute “rest stops” with God, when you just close your eyes and imagine Jesus wrapping his arms around you. You’ll find life more rewarding and Christian living more doable.

In other words, just chill out.

Is your life too hectic? Identify one thing you could do to build in more downtime?

The Action Response

We are all shepherds of those who come under our care. Look upon those in need of your care with the loving eyes of Jesus.

[accordion_item title="Parents and Friends Meeting" accordion="accordion"]

Dear Parents and Friends,

I would like to thank all those who attended the last P and F meeting on the 1st September. There was dynamic conversation and renewed enthusiasm to continue and build on the good work that has been done so far this year, both in providing resources for the school and students as well as supporting events that have been held to date. The commitment of Darren Friesner in coordinating parent support for many recent events was particularly noted and this is again an opportunity to thank him for the hours he spent over many nights supporting the Catholic Performing Arts Band evening and the Dance Showcase.

To try and find a solution to the reducing numbers of volunteers, a small sub-committee was convened to look at ways the P and F can attract parents to help at the many events during the year. Their suggestions will be tabled at the upcoming meeting, to be held Tuesday, 13th October at 7.30pm in the staffroom and we would love further input. The agenda can be found on the Parents and Friends Portal on Coneqtp, or at the link below.

On a really positive note, a significant decision was made to produce a calendar that will feature artwork chosen at the upcoming Art Exhibition which will be given free to every family at the beginning of next year. It will be an opportunity to showcase students achievements, highlight the great contribution of the Parents and Friends and increase the communitys awareness of the support we provide to the school.

So, with renewed energy at the meetings, I would like to invite all parents to the Parents and Friends Meeting, Tuesday 13th October.

LOLA DAVIES - WA ROWING

Lola

Lola recently competed in the WA Rowing State Championships, she and her partner qualified for the final in the fastest time and went on to take out the championship final of the Women’s E grade Double Skull. This is a really fabulous achievement for Lola, she started rowing less than a year ago so she is still very new to the sport. In addition to this at 13 she would have been the youngest competitor by a very long way, this category is an open age category so Lola and her partner were racing against much older girls as well as full grown women (including her mother!). They won their races in emphatic style, we are very proud of their achievement.

Corpus Christi also has another State Champion, Michael Orton and his crew won the Championship final of the C Grade Men’s Eight. We hope that next year Michael and Lola will get the opportunity to race in their School colours in a Mixed Double.

RELATIONSHIPS AUSTRALIA COURSES

Dads Raising Teenage Girls – Thursday 24 September at 22 Southport Street, West Leederville 6.30-9. $25.00.
The father-daughter relationship is particularly important during the teenage years to help girls navigate this difficult time. Find out how you can build a more rewarding relationship with your teenage daughter. For further information please click here or ring 9489 6322.

Mums Raising Boys - up to the age of 12 years – Wednesday 14 October at 22 Southport Street, West Leederville 6.30-9. $25.00.
However well-prepared mothers are logically, the emotional response to having a boy is often still, ‘Wow! This is unknown territory.’ It is true that for many mothers, the idea of raising a son carries its own set of worries. As the primary female role model in a boy’s life, mothers play an important role in the development of their son’s identity including their ability to be nurturing. This in turn affects how they relate to others, particularly to girls and women. For further information please click here or ring 9489 6322.

Parent-Teen Connection – Tuesday 20th October x 4 weeks at 22 Southport Street, West Leederville. $50 per person/ $75 per couple
We have all come through adolescence – do we remember? It has always been a challenging, sometimes frustrating period of life’s journey. Thankfully, today’s parents are usually more inclined to listen. Living with teenagers can be confusing and even worrying, but also rewarding. This course reduces stress and teaches parents to communicate, negotiate and minimise conflict. For further information please click here or ring 9489 6322.

Building Stronger Families - a course for the whole family. Thursday 22 October x 6 weeks. $80 per person/$120 per family.
This six-week course is designed specifically for families with children over the age of 10. Inclusion is the key, and any adult involved in the parenting process is invited to come along and learn the skills needed to keep your family healthy. Parents, learn how to be leaders and role models in your family. Children learn how to be special and also how to belong. This course is based on the work of George Doub and Florence Creighton, authors of Survival Skills for Healthy Families. For further information please click here or ring 9489 6322.
