House Athletics Carnival

The Senior School House Athletics are being held next Thursday, March 23 at the Middle School oval. The event runs all day and is a wonderful occasion, bringing the whole Senior School together. All Senior School students are expected to attend and the Heads of House shall be following up all absences. We may ask for a doctor’s certificate to verify the absence.

I also wish to invite parents and guardians for the day in which a variety of events are on show. The House spirit on this day is tremendous.

Easter Service

Our annual Easter Service is to be on Friday, March 31, our last day for the term. It is to be at the Middle School SAC from 11.25am. We wish to invite parents and guardians to join us. The Music Department shall be providing stunning music, and there will also be a short play depicting an aspect of Easter.

All our Senior School students shall be in attendance.

Hi All,

When I look around and talk to many of you in our College community I am struck by how diverse and wonderful you all are.

I want to encourage us all to be intentional about caring for one another. Part of that is staying connected and having meaningful conversations with each other, which is something we can all do.

You don't need to be an expert - just a caring person who is a good listener. So, if you notice someone who might be struggling - start a conversation. Got a niggling feeling that someone you know or care about isn’t behaving as they normally would? Perhaps they seem out of sorts? Or they’re just not themselves?

Trust that gut instinct and act on it. That’s part of belonging to a community.

By starting a conversation and commenting on the changes you’ve noticed, you could help that family member, friend or workmate open up. And if all is well, that person will know you’re someone who cares enough to ask. 

Please come and have a conversation with me if you personally have a concern about someone, or there is a challenge that you are facing and need to talk to someone confidentially.

Take care and I trust you are having a great week.

Chaplain, Bellarine Campus.

This year, the SRC leaders of our College are taking on the role of initiating and implementing Project Care fundraisers and awareness campaigns.

In this term, we have planned to help youth homelessness in our community. We would like your support in asking if you would be kind enough to donate some mini toiletries, such as toothbrushes, toothpastes conditioners and soaps. Nothing too big, just something that is light and manageable. For example, you may have items you collected from visiting a hotel.

The SRC’s from each class will collect these items and make them into care packs to give to people who need them most. We encourage you to get behind this cause. We would love your help. Please bring your items to school any time before Wednesday, March 29.

Next Friday, March 24, we will be wearing blue and white to raise funds for Rivers Gift. Rivers Gift is a charity and running group that raise awareness and money for SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), which is an illness that affects about 80 babies a year in Australia alone. All the money raised will be sent to Harvard University, which will be used to help find a cure for SIDS.

Alex and Karl are a local family who were affected by SIDS. Their son, River, died at only 128 days old (2 July 2011 – 7 November 2011). Alex and Karl then started the group 'Rivers Gift' to raise money for research. So far they have raised $550,000, with the hope that one day there will be a cure to SIDS and that no other family would have to go through this again.

If you would like more information on this cause please visit http://www.riversgift.com/

We encourage everyone to bring $2 or more next Friday.

Thank you to the large number of families in attendance Tuesday evening at our Middle School Information session.

In speaking with many parents afterwards, we’re assured that it was an informative and worthwhile night. We appreciate the opportunity to share with you the direction your child is heading within 21st century education at Christian College, while partnering together during the wonderful adolescent Middle School years!

Over the coming editions of 'The Vine', we aim to unpack a little of what was shared, which will hopefully be of value to both families that were able to be present on the night and for those that were unable to be with us. In this week’s edition, I have included a clip of my opening, which includes some discussion around our move towards growing our 'Culture of Learning' for our students.

We have recently had complaints from residents and Junior School parents regarding the pick up and drop off of children at Junior School. It would seem obvious, but illegal parking poses ...

Parents are reminded that ALL OF US are required, by law, to park in the designated car parks. Failure to do so, regardless of your reasons, puts the welfare of our children at risk.

If you are parking in areas of the big car park in front of Williams House where there are no designated car park spaces or in the 'No Standing' spaces, you are putting our children at risk.

If you are parking unsafely in Dumfries Court at the back of the school, you are putting our children at risk.

Please note the following legal requirements when parking:

- Keep your car's left wheels close to the kerb.

- Don't park across a lane or private driveway (you can stop here for up to two minutes if you're dropping off or picking up passengers and don't leave your car).

- You must park at least 10 metres before or after an intersection.

I have contacted Council and asked for assistance from their officers to help us ensure that all visitors to our campus are parking safely and within the laws.

We thank you for your attention to this very important matter as we endeavour to protect the safety of our students.

As part of their Work Related Skills, the Year 11 VCAL students had an opportunity to view a CFA fire tanker first hand.

They considered the fire tanker as a workplace. Students identified the safety equipment and personal protective equipment used to fight fires. They also acknowledged some of the many possible risks and hazards associated with operating such equipment in a wild fire scenario. Students then participated in a class discussion, watched a video on grass fires and completed a written report on their findings.

The Year 12 Senior VCAL students recently visited the Salvation Army branch in Bourke Street, Melbourne where they participated in the 'Tour and Talk' program on the subject of homelessness. This involved the students undertaking activities associated with the causes of homelessness. The students also participated in a 40-minute walk around Melbourne where they viewed some of the most common places that the homeless sleep out overnight. They found the activity very engaging and informative. This activity will form part of their Personal Development program.

Nearly all of our students are now out working in their chosen industries on Fridays. We now just need two placements that involve Beauty and Make up and one for Fashion. If you know of anyone in business who may be willing to help support these students on a Friday, please contact the Student Office. Your help would be much appreciated.

Throughout this week, the Year 5 students had the opportunity to participate in workshops with both our Chaplains, Tim Blackhall (Chappy) and Naomi Gibbons.

The purpose of these practical sessions was twofold; firstly for Year 5 students to get to know our Chaplains, and to also explicitly teach students some life skills such as: how to understand your own feelings, learning how people may respond differently to situations and creating and maintaining healthy friendships.

The students enjoyed hearing some real life stories from our Chaplains. Naomi used a relatable visual tool with snow globes. Snow globes can be shaken quickly or just a little bit. Just like our emotions.

Sometimes things happen that can shake up our snow globe. But our thoughts and words can help us to turn our ‘snow globe’ back around and to bounce back quickly when things go wrong. Students were able to share and discuss the 'MYTERN' tools or 'PETS' (personal emotional tools) they use to make a difference in reacting to situations.

Some students explained that their PETS were reading a book to take their mind off things, some students liked to ask for help, while others like to take a break and re-visit situations later. The lessons were interactive and practical, and I know the Year 5’s appreciated the time that they had with the Chaplains and are looking forward to building on these lessons in these final weeks of term.

A breakfast celebration for International Women’s Day was held in the library of the Senior Campus on Wednesday, March 8.

With over 55 students, parents and staff attending, it was a most successful and enjoyable occasion. In acknowledgement of the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day, our library was transformed by the creative genius of Kay Wilson. The spectacular display, featured throughout that week, highlighted significant achievements of past student Janey Kennedy, recent achievement by women in sport, as well as participation by women in politics, industry, design and science.

  

Our special guest, Lynley Marshall, the recently appointed CEO of Museum’s Victoria, inspired and moved all, with the story of her rise to success from a farming community in remote New Zealand, to her successful career at the senior executive management level in the areas of broadcasting and the arts. Lynley’s account of challenges she overcame resonated with many in the audience. Her passion for life-long learning and her justification for the importance of education in achieving one’s goals conveyed a wonderful message, especially to our students.

In response to International Women’s Day, 6M Homeroom explored a variety of influential women throughout Australian history.

They questioned and were challenged by historical gender inequality when discussing the rate of the many changes which have occurred regarding laws, employment and the rights and responsibilities of women since Australia’s Federation in 1901. Honest and reflective comments were shared as part of the task, which lead to several students writing letters to mothers and relatives to thank them and to recognise their contribution in the children’s lives.

On Thursday, the 16th of March the Year 4 students had the pleasure of joining their Prep buddies for a Teddy Bear Picnic.  All students brought along their favourite teddy bear from home.  We shared in the storybook, ‘A Teddy Bear’s Picnic,’ made teddy bears of our own, went on a number trail to the picnic and finally ventured outside for a picnic with our special stuffed friends.  Our Prep and Year 4 students love working together and are building a beautiful relationship, which will continue throughout their journey at the college.

Year One have been learning how to write descriptive texts on people, places and things.

When we write descriptive texts, we use adjectives to describe how someone or something looks. We can use words like 'sweet', 'sour', 'delicious' and 'yummy' to describe how something tastes.

'Fluffy', 'soft', 'old' and 'small' are adjectives we used to describe our favourite toys. We used the words 'friendly', 'caring', 'funny' and 'nice' to write a description about our friends. We linked our writing to our author study on Jeannie Baker by writing about Morocco and Australia after reading her book, ‘Mirror.’

After reading Jeannie Baker’s book, ‘Window’, we created a collage of our favourite place out a window and then wrote a description about it. We have also been searching for adjectives in the books we read during reading activities. This has helped us better understand how to use describing words in our own writing.

“I had fun writing a description about Dimithri because he is my friend,” Josh, from 1G, said.
Tegan also added: “I enjoyed writing a description about myself because I had to think of good adjectives to use to describe what I look like.”

Coming up, Year One will be learning how to write procedural texts about the things they will be making in our Integrated Studies unit, 'Bend, Twist and Stretch'.

Last Friday, our students and teachers from Prep B and Prep R enjoyed a beautiful time together for their first Bush (Beach) Prep session for the year.

The children spent time discovering so many things that we can find at the beach when we really look. Their experience provided the context for much discussion and learning upon their return to the classroom this week.

Today our Prep B and Prep G classes have their Bush (Beach) Prep session, and next Friday, March 24, it will be Prep G and Prep R's turn. Children are to wear their sports uniform with house coloured polo tops.

Also, a reminder that there are no lunch orders for the Prep G and Prep R students next Friday.

Insights into a student perspective: Ariane Pierssene

MTERN is a program created by DR Jane Foster. The name MYTERN stands for 'Take Emotional Responsibility Now'. MYTERN was established to encourage people of any age to be more emotionally intelligent, build emotional resilience and teach society to have control over their reactions to others. It shows these concepts through the idea of a steering wheel and different coloured roads - 'red roads' being 'rough' emotions such as jealousy, sadness and aggression, and 'green roads' representing 'smooth' emotions like generosity, happiness and confidence.

MYTERN builds resilience in people of all ages by teaching them how to move from a red road to a green road. Through MYTERN, we are taught that it is ok to be on a red road. I thought the forum was really valuable, worthwhile and it taught me a lot about how I can manage my own emotions, and that I’m not responsible for other people’s emotions and behaviours. I look forward to learning more about this at school.

While Tuesday was just a normal day to most people, within the Mathematics faculty, there was an irrational sense of excitement as 'Pi Day' had arrived.

Pi Day, first celebrated in 1988, is celebrated on March 14 (3/14) in recognition of the constant ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter – called Pi.

Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point, but to 2 decimal places is approximately 3.14. Senior School celebrated Pi Day with the staff, sharing a morning tea consisting of pies: pumpkin pie, party pies, apple pies, gluten free, chocolate pies, fruit pies - as well as a variety of other circular food that closely resembled pies. Maths jokes were shared, with significant variation in the appreciation displayed by the Senior Staff.

The staff room noticeboard was duly decorated with content that only a true Maths nerd would appreciate. And it isn’t only the staff who have recognised this important day. The students have been competing in a House Group challenge where they have to apply their logical thinking and general knowledge to answer a set of ‘Number Phrases.’

Who knew that Maths could be so much fun? And it doesn’t stop here. The next big event on the calendar will be July 22, known as 'Pi Approximation Day'. The fraction 22/7 approximates Pi to 2 decimal places also, and has commonly been used throughout history since the time of Archimedes. 

As we like to say in the Maths Faculty “Teaching Maths is quite divine, three point one four one five nine."

As a part of our Integrated Studies unit ‘It’s Alive’, the students in Year 3 will be attending an incursion with the Responsible Pet Ownership organisation.

This incursion will take place on March 22, and will be held in the Junior School Chapel at various times during the day. We understand that there may be some children who are either allergic or afraid of dogs.

If this is the case for your child, we ask that you speak with your child’s classroom Teacher and advise them of any issues your child may have with attending the session. Please find below an outline of the program your child will be attending:

The Responsible Pet Ownership Primary School Program is aimed at 5 to 12 year olds and has been delivered to over 1 million Victorian primary school children. It visits over 800 primary schools each year across the state.

The program includes a dog visit, multimedia tools, role play, song and story time.

The Program focusses on teaching students about dog safety:
• When dogs should be left alone.
• Things we should not do to dogs.
• How can you tell if a dog is happy, frightened or angry.
• A safe way to approach and greet a dog.
• What to do if approached by an unknown or aggressive dog.

The Program also introduces and develops the following concepts:
• Choosing an appropriate pet, general welfare and husbandry.
• The importance of identification and registration.
• Confinement and housing, exercise and training.

The Year 6 students headed to Lady Northcote Camp in Rowsley during week 6. 

The camp gave the students the opportunity to challenge themselves by participating in a range of outdoor adventure activities. The warm conditions were ideal for canoeing on the dam and the students enjoyed capsizing the boats to cool off at the end.

A highlight for most students was the 18-metre high giant swing, which not only gave students a great view, but also a huge adrenaline rush. The camp also offered the opportunity for students to work cooperatively to solve challenges and develop stronger friendships. All students returned exhausted, but with fond memories of their camping experience.

Student camp reflections:

Capsizing (Georgia, 6D)

Her voice was immensely loud. Shouting out instructions about where to go and who to go with. It was our turn to go down and take a dip in the cool water. It was the hottest day I can remember in summer. We walked down to the water’s edge and took a paddle in our hand, put a helmet on our head, and put a life vest around our chest.

We were ready to go. Into the back seat I climbed, bobbing up and down on the water. A minute later, we were paddling around in the middle of the dam. I was no longer hot. The cool breeze brushing past me, the water drops splashing against me, it was the best feeling I had had at camp so far. 

Suddenly there was an outbreak on the water. Every time a canoe passed another canoe, there was a lot of splashing. At that second, I felt a splash on my back, Mr Burgess had splashed me. I splashed him back. It was a lot of fun.

Not long after we connected up all our canoes and we were about to capsize. I wasn’t completely sure if I wanted to do it or not, but I knew I only had one opportunity and I didn’t want to waste it. We were told to go first. Our canoe came out from the bundle and we went out to capsize. "Three, Two, One," she called out! We rocked the boat and jumped out. The water felt so nice against my skin. The water brushing past was the relief from the heat I had been waiting for. I wanted to do it again and again. We swam the boat back to shore. Our clothes were soaking wet but I didn’t care. It was definitely something I would remember about camp.

And some poems from Students:

From Ivy

There was an amazing camp,

I went canoeing and got very damp,

We went mountain biking,

I wish we went hiking,

Overall it was a great camp!

From Lucy 

There was a huge giant swing,

When I went up I started to sing,

I wished to go higher,

I sang like a choir,

When I was up I felt like a king!

Dear Parents,

In Week 8 this term, our Year 8 students in homerooms 8B, 8G and 8H will be celebrating the work that we have completed by having 'Medieval Day' on Thursday, March 23

Students are asked to come dressed as if they lived in 'Medieval' times. Some people like to hire costumes, however, this is not necessary. For example, if your son is coming along as a knight, he could make his costume by wearing a white shirt with a red cross and can make a shield and sword out of foil-covered cardboard. Girls could wear a longer skirt and a shirt tied at the waist with some rope.

We have an educational group, 'History Up Close', coming in to run the day and we encourage you to reinforce to your child that this is an important part of the History curriculum. From past experience, we know that this day is a highlight for the students in their study of History.

On the day, we will be having a 'Medieval Feast' for lunch underneath the sheltered area at the back of the school. The school will provide chickens to eat, but we would ask each student to bring along something to share. The list for this will go home next week. Students will be divided into small groups of approximately four for the feast, so the item they bring only needs to be small and enough for the people in their group.

We ask that each students brings along a cup - preferably metal or china - to be in keeping with the times. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with myself or your child’s History teacher.

 

Thankyou,

Mr Leon O’Neill

Today is the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence

We know from research that bullying of any form, being bullied, being a bystander or bullying others, can have long-term and negative impact on our youth. “The primary aim of the school's response is to restore a positive learning environment for all students.”1. 

At Senior School, we do this through restorative practices, under the guidance of our 'Bullying and Harassment Policy'. Support structures are in place and students are encouraged to make contact with a teacher, coordinator or chaplain if ever they are concerned.

Parents are encouraged to help their child develop their own personal resources to support them in times when they are exposed to negative interactions. For more support with this, I recommend looking through the resources available on the 'Bullying No Way' website: https://bullyingnoway.gov.au/WhatIsBullying.

Parents can also access a parent helpline, details below.

Parentline Victoria - www.parentline.vic.gov.au  or 13 22 89 (cost of a local call) 8am to midnight 7 days a week

Senior School promoted the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence with the help of the Student CARE Council.

Following their excursion to the Geelong Botanic Gardens, here are the words of some of the Year 6 students:

“Finding interesting trees based on photos we were given, then writing facts about them.”

Michael Broomhead

“I learnt about sorting and comparing three different types of plants, and about how they are different and what makes them a plant or a fruit.” - Peyton Milne

“I learnt that bees have their own runway to land on the flower because two petals have four lines that guide them in.”  - Sam Sayle

“Thinking about plants, I learnt that all plants have different DNA. If there is a good apple for example, the farmer might graft that branch onto another tree.” - Cooper Welsh

“It was fun collaborating with other people and working together on activities. I enjoyed looking at different flowers and plants closely because I don't usually have that opportunity.” - Lucy Martin

“I really enjoyed getting out of the classroom. I liked looking at and drawing the details of different plants.” - Ruby Lockman

Yesterday, our Year 9 Highton Food Studies students opened a 'Pop-Up Café' during lunchtime, selling food items they had designed to our College community.

It aimed to highlight 21st century learning, with the student driven project encouraging them to problem solve in a collaborative way. It also introduced the students to the many and varied aspects of running a small business - not just the design, production and selling of food, but cash handling, marketing, promotion, OH&S regulations and shift management, just to name a few.  

It was also a co-collaboration project with the Year 8 Product Design students, providing the furnishings, the Product Design and Technology students making some seating, and the band, 'Suspended 4th', creating a great atmosphere on the day. The real-life café also forged links into our community by supplying leftover food to a local charity. Congratulations to all the students working together on this project and we look forward to seeing how our students develop this opportunity.

Christian College Geelong dominated the GISSA Swimming Championships!

Our College took out three of the four sections - Junior Boys, Junior Girls & Senior Boys. In addition to this, the Boy’s team won the Overall Shield, and the Girls narrowly missed 1st place in the Overall Girls section, recording second - just 19 points behind Geelong College.

The contribution by all swimmers is to be commended. In any team event, there are normally late withdrawals or unavailability and others within the team are required to fill these spaces. The College swimmers replaced those absent with enthusiasm, skill and passion. This willingness was a significant contributor toward the great results.

Highlights

- The leadership and support provided by Swimming Captains Georgia Gordon and Declan Hargreaves.

- Max Piroch, Year 10, remained undefeated after four years of competition - extending his streak to 20 individual and relay wins. What an impressive record! With the support of Flynn Drake, Aaron Richardson and Hamish Todd, the boys dominated the 16 years age group.

- Madison Cooper, Year 7, was victorious in all her individual events - Freestyle, Breaststroke, Backstroke and Butterfly. In addition to that, she joined with Nyah Brown, Maya Fuller and Kya Werner to win the Medley Relay.

- Elizabeth Andueza Mossop, Year 10, won the Backstroke, Butterfly and Freestyle 16-year events.

- The 15-year-old boys of Dylan Logan, Noah Cunningham, Flynn Sheldon and Austin Brown won the 4 x 50 metre Freestyle and Medley Relays and the 14-year-old Boys team of Riley Taylor, Harvey Beckley, Sullivan West and Luka Kapitelli won the 4 x 50 metre Freestyle Relay.

On March 9, I had the privilege of taking 6 students from the Bellarine Campus to participate in a special 'MYTERN' forum, located at the Senior School campus with Dr Jane Foster.

The purpose of the forum was to explore how to further implement this program into our Middle School so that students reap the rewards and develop their emotional intelligence. The students were fully engrossed in the day, and provided valuable feedback to the staff and to Dr Jane Foster as to how they would like to see the program unravel in their classrooms.

Rebecca Barry
Classroom Teacher

Here is what Tiarna Bett had to say about the forum:

Mytern is a program created by Dr Jane Foster. The name MYTERN stands for 'Take Emotional Responsibility Now.' Mytern was established to encourage people of any age to be more emotionally intelligent, build more emotional resilience and teach society to have control over their reactions to others. It shows these concepts through the idea of a steering wheel and different coloured roads - red being 'rough' emotions, including jealousy, sadness and aggression, and green roads representing 'smooth' emotions, including generosity, happiness and confidence.

MYTERN builds resilience in people of all ages by teaching them how to move from a red road to a green road. Through MYTERN we are taught that it is ok to be on a red road. I thought the forum was really valuable, worthwhile and it taught me a lot about how I can manage my own emotions, and that I’m not responsible for other people’s emotions and behaviours. I look forward to learning more about this at school.

At various times throughout the school year, photographs of students may be taken in class, around the College grounds, during excursions and special events or other learning activities.

A selection of such photographs or videos can be used for College publicity and promotion, including class displays, student presentations, media presentations or for pre-service teacher folios. They may also be used within the College newsletter, 'The Vine', on our website or throughout official College social media channels including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The use of these photographs can be an effective way of acknowledging student and College achievements, as well as giving our families and community an insight into the day-to-day ‘happenings’ of our College life.

Our staff are always careful to choose only appropriate photographs to support our printed publicity, promotional material, newsletters or news and event reports on the Christian College website.

However, if any parents do NOT wish their son or daughter to be photographed for these purposes, named in College publications or on website reports, you are asked to notify your Head of Campus in writing by Friday, March 31.

Year 8 students loved their geology tour around parts of the Bellarine Peninsula because they could physically walk the edge of a crater then follow the slope of the lava flow.

Great thinking and discussion then flowed as to how the You Yangs might have been formed. They are not volcanic! Ask a Year 8 student the theories about how they formed and why.

By integrating Science, Geography and Outdoor Education, the students benefit from the synergistic effect of building a deeper and broader knowledge base and understanding, rather than studying each subject in isolation. When responding to “thinking” questions, students were encouraged to draw on their experiences from the different subjects.

All agreed that the outdoor classroom was great, because it made the learning real when you actually get a mining pick in your hands and chip off different types of rocks. Actually walking key local geological features that we have been studying also helped piece together the geological jigsaw puzzle of the Bellarine Peninsula.

The first Food Technology 'Pop Up Café' for 2017 was received extremely well at the end of a sunny, warm week - serving up delicious, healthy icy poles to the Bellarine and Middle School students.

The Year 9 class investigated seasonal fruits, tested and trialed many different flavour combinations, and calculated the ingredient costings for the bulk production before they could determine a sale price for each product. The students thoroughly enjoyed the entire process of the design brief and gaining insights into running a small business.

What a fun day we had at our first Project Care Day for 2017 at the Bellarine Campus. 

Our whole community rallied together in support of the Leukemia Foundation’s fundraising event the ‘World’s Greatest Shave’. We dressed up crazy and bright, got our hair coloured, had fun in the photo booth and saw some teachers endure getting their legs waxed! However, the main event for the day was seeing our incredible chaplain Gary Crole committing 100 per cent to the cause and shaving his head.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to our College community for always participating and being so generous towards our project care initiatives. The project care team are thrilled to announce that we raised $1,600 for this great foundation.

We are so excited for this year and look forward to seeing the impact our combined generosity will have on our community, nation and world.

We would be keen to hear from any adults within our community who would be interested in assisting at Middle Campus – Highton, in the capacity of a Reinforced Reading Tutor.

Reinforced Reading is a strategy developed by MultiLit to support the MacqLit Reading Intervention program introduced in our Middle Campuses this year.

Reinforced Reading Tutors will be working in a voluntary capacity.

Our Learning Support Staff will provide pre-training and ongoing support.

Tutors will need to have a Working with Children’s Card (WWCC).

Ideally, we need to have a Reinforced Reading Tutor at the school every school day for at least one hour however, this could be well -serviced by a number of rostered individuals.

Interested persons should email Roselyn Smith (ro.smith@ccg.vic.edu.au) providing your name, your availability, your compliance status re having a WWCC and the evenings you would be available for training.

Thank you for your ongoing support for our students and their learning.


Mrs Roselyn Smith

Director of Teaching and Learning - Learning Support Services
