Dear Parents

Welcome back to Term Three. Over the July break a number of capital works projects were completed around the College by the Grounds and Maintenance Team and ICT Staff. These projects included:

  • The creation of a dedicated Pastoral Care Centre in what was M02 and the Senior School Head of Year (HoY) Office. This space now houses all six of the HoY’s, Careers and Workplace Learning staff in one easily accessible location for students. The space also includes a Foyer for students/parents to wait in, a Meeting Room and an Interview Room
  • The former Careers/Workplace Learning Office will be converted into a Year 12 Seminar/Study Room
  • The former English Office is now a classroom replacing M02
  • New glass doors in Mayne Block have improved student movement into and within Mayne Block
  • Tiered seating has been installed in Mayne Block. This will provide a space for whole Year groups/Houses to meet for assemblies. It will also function as a breakout area for classes within Mayne Block. This area will be carpeted in the near future.

As a College, we are extremely grateful to the Maintenance and Grounds Team, and ICT Staff for their hard work and effort in completing these projects within a relatively short timeframe. On a number of occasions, the team worked late into the evening to complete these projects.

The term commenced for all staff on Monday 20 July with a Faith Formation Day led by Fr Richard Leonard. Fr Richard is a Jesuit Priest who has degrees in Arts and Education, as well as a Master’s degree in Theology. On Monday, Fr Richard presented on the topic “What Makes a Catholic School Catholic” and in his presentation, he challenged staff to consider what truly makes Catholic schools different to other schools. The three key differences identified by Fr Richard were:

1. In Catholic Schools we pray publically.
2. Catholic Schools hand on the riches of the Catholic tradition to their students.
3. Catholic schools want their world of values and ethics to intersect with the real world of the students.

One of the many quotes from Fr Richard’s presentation that I found inspiring was “God is great and we are frail”. This quote was referring to one of the reasons to why we pray. We pray for forgiveness, help and direction because, as humans, we are not perfect and we need guidance.

STAFF IN ACTING LEADERSHIP POSITIONS TERM THREE

This term there is a number of teaching staff in acting leadership positions due to staff on leave or fulfilling other leadership positions within the College. As a College, we are very fortunate to have so many staff that are willing and able to take on new challenges, and enhance their leadership capabilities.

Acting Coordinator of Christian Service - Mr Isaac Ramshaw
Acting Head of Languages - Ms Maria Belloni

RETURNING STAFF

We have a number of staff who have returned to us after Long Service Leave in Term Two. A warm welcome back is extended to Mr Simon Keane, Mrs Manuela Piscetek, Mr Jim Greaves and Mrs Shaunnagh Andrewartha. We hope that they had a relaxing time whilst away and return to the College refreshed and energised for the term ahead.

SERVICE TO THE COLLEGE

Being Service orientated is one of the key descriptors that is encompassed in the Corpus Christi College Learner Profile attribute of being Christ Like. Service can take many forms and at Corpus Christi College this is acknowledged through the presentation of awards to students who have distinguished themselves by their commitment, dedication and sense of service to a College activity. The awards are based not on length of service, but on the quality of service to the College in the area of nomination. At Year 11 and Year 12 Assemblies this week, Service Awards were presented to the students listed below. We congratulate these students and thank them for their commitment and dedication to the College.

[accordion_item title="Forming Partnerships" accordion="accordion"]

With the close proximity of our two schools, we are fortunate to be able to develop fun and engaging educational programs together. This not only benefits our students but also helps to form lasting relationships amongst the staff.

Corpus Christi College and Yidarra Catholic Primary School cater for students with a range of educational needs and challenges. The Teacher Assistants in the ESC and Yidarra Primary classes are currently working on a similar theme for 2015, Towards Independence. This shared goal has already provided a common thread for conversation and planning across the two schools. Forming partnerships with students and staff between both schools provides a range of short and long-term benefits.

Why is this partnership beneficial?

  • Allows students from Yidarra to meet and work with staff form Corpus and become familiar with the Corpus campus. This collaboration will ease the transition period when students enter into Year 7
  • This is often a very unsettling time for students with learning disabilities
  • Enables Teacher Assistants from both schools to become more collaborative with their planning and provides an avenue for sharing strategies
  • The ability to track student’s progress from Kindy through to Year 12, providing a more thorough and ongoing successful intervention
  • Shared professional learning days
  • Allows Corpus ESC students to act as mentors to Yidarra students, thus fostering leadership qualities.

      The Year 7s have started back at school with gusto! This week we have had an extended Homeroom where everyone had the chance to tidy their workspaces, catch up with friendships and get themselves organised for another busy term.

      Thursday saw the first of three Pastoral sessions for the term. This week’s session focused on the continuation of Cybersaftey and Goal reflection and Goal setting. Particular focus was made on developing Christlike behaviours, such as Compassion, Hope and Courage.

      In week 4 the Year 7’s have the anticipated event of the calendar year to look forward to in the Sadler Sleepover. More information and a permission note will follow in the next couple of weeks.

      [accordion_item title="Year 8 Pastoral Lessons" accordion="accordion"]

      The most recent Pastoral session introduced students to the topic of Life Problem Solving Skills within the SenseAbility program.

      The session dealt with the five steps to take while problem solving:

      1. Identify the problem
      2. What are my options
      3. Consider the consequences
      4. Make a decision
      5. Do and review

      Applying these steps alongside helpful thinking strategies, from previous Pastoral sessions is aimed to equip the students to make good decisions, based on the facts and the actual situation rather than allowing emotion and negative self-talk drive decisions.

      MULAN IMMERSION PROGRAMME

      On 1 August 2015, ten students and four staff from Corpus Christi College are embarking on an immersion to the remote Mulan Aboriginal Community. The aim of the immersion is to provide the staff and students with opportunities to act with humility and love in assisting those in need.

      The Mulan Immersion seeks to:

      • Empower students to put the Gospel call to live as disciples of Jesus into action within the College community and beyond
      • Provide opportunities for students to develop understanding, appreciation of other cultures and to reach out to others in selfless Christian Service
      • Assist students in an Education for Justice and Christian Service
      • Provide students with opportunities to live the Catholic Social Teaching of the Preferential Option for the Poor
      • Enable leadership growth by following Jesus’ example of washing his disciples feet
      • Provide students with opportunities to act with humility and love in assisting the needs of others
      • Provide students with opportunities to reflect upon Christian principles in response to experiences undertaken.

      The College undertakes this immersion with the students from John Pujajangka-Piyirn Catholic School. John Pujajangka-Piyirn Catholic School is situated at Mulan, close to Lake Gregory (Paruku) in a remote part of the Kimberley area of Western Australia.

      We wish Miss Amy Christophers, Mr Ian Bean, Mrs Noreen Stevenson and Ms Jennifer Overend, with students Rheanne Menezes, Ella Hart, Gracie Drennan, Jordan Nadj, Molly Elliott, Robert Stevens, Cassandra Rauh, Madison Arrowsmith, India Santaromita and Desiree Louis all the very best for their immersion journey.

      What an incredible last few weeks of term we had in the Arts Learning Area, with some brilliant successes. Congratulations to Mrs Chanelle Spark and her team (Mrs Caroline Fuhr, Mrs Catherine Runyon and Mr Cam Allen) who embarked on a memorable Dance Tour to Sydney during the school holidays. I was especially impressed with the standard of learning and behaviour of all the students who participated. It was an experience the students will remember for a very long time.

      With our Inter-House play and Music Night at the end of last term, the College witnessed a feast of talent from students across the College. Our ever capable and talented Head of Music Mr David Harries, created an incredible stage setup with Mr Evan Georgopoulos our Lighting and Sound Technician. Their combined skills made for a brilliantly timed musical extravaganza.

      On Friday afternoon, 24 July, Music and Drama students are setting off on the Arts Camp which will conclude with a special Choral and Orchestral Mass at St Mary’s Cathedral on Sunday 26 July at 11.00am.

      24 July is also the official opening of the Catholic Performing Arts Festival.

      Congratulations to the following students who have reached the highest of successes in two Art forms:

      DANCE
      Tessa Puttick 12 de Vialar has been accepted into the National Theatre Ballet School in Melbourne. We congratulate Tessa on having gained acceptance to all four dance schools for which she auditioned.

      CORPUS DANCE

      Corpus Dance Company and Corpus Collective debuts at the Catholic Performing Arts Festival!

      Our 95 dancers involved in Corpus Dance Company and Corpus Collective will be having their debut performance in Week 5. As a part of the Secondary Dance section in the Catholic Performing Arts Festival, the students will present two original dance works which they have been working on since the end of Term One. Our dancers have been rehearsing very hard in the early, cold mornings to develop “Feudal Intrigue” a story of a corrupt King, engrossed in his own power while his soldiers and Queen begin to unravel the hierarchal empire. The “Beat of Life” has been choreographed by artist Peter Fares, who has worked with our Collective students to create a work about the heart beat being central to trust, relationships and the soul of our existence.

      To see these wonderful performances live on Monday 17th August 2015 at the Perth Exhibition and Convention Centre, please book tickets online through the Ticektek website http://premier.ticketek.com.au

      We will perform these pieces to the Corpus community at our annual dance showcase.

      TESSA PUTTICK (12DE) is accepted into the National Theatre Ballet School in Melbourne!

      After the Sydney Dance Tour, Year 12 student Tessa Puttick remained over east to audition for a number of dance schools in Sydney and Melbourne. Tessa is a highly technical dancer and it is with great pride and excitement that we congratulate Tessa on gaining acceptance in to all four dance schools she auditioned for! This is an exceptional achievement and is a reflection of the hard work and dedication Tessa has given to Dance over a number of years. Tessa has happily accepted an offer from the National Theatre Ballet School in Melbourne – this school only takes 12 students each year from national and international auditions and is the dance school that Tessa has dreamed of being a part of. We are very proud of Tessa’s achievements and we look forward to seeing her shine on stage in the years to come, congratulations!
