I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our Surf Coast families for your on going support during what has been a very busy Term Two. We have much to celebrate and be thankful for at our campus, as God has continued to strengthen our community through the provision of some very exciting and rich learning opportunities for prep students.

 

As we look toward Term Three it is with much excitement that we will begin to welcome the beginning of the second stage of our growing campus. It is projected that the first part of our new buildings will arrive early September. Stage two will provide our campus with a new Library, Art room, Music room, Japanese room, six more classrooms and two toilet blocks.

 

Next term is also shaping up to be a very exciting one for our prep students. There are excursions planned, bush prep, visiting our Junior School friends and a little something special for our Dads for Fathers Day.

 

I hope and pray that God will bless you all with a restful break with your families. I look forward to seeing you next term.

 

God bless you and take care,

May I take this opportunity to thank you for your support and prayers throughout what has been a very busy first Semester. It has been wonderful to witness the student growth, development and learning throughout this term. There have been so many highlights and opportunities for our students, new friendships forged and memories created. Hopefully you have an opportunity to read through the latest edition of our InFocus publication (delivered home via your child this week), highlighting the immense breadth of student engagement and learning across Christian College throughout Semester 1.

Next week, our staff will commence a two and a half day retreat. This is intentional time set aside specifically for us to focus on our Christian faith and how we can best serve God through our respective roles throughout the College community. In recent years, we have explored the topics around notions of ‘Teaching Christianly’ and last year examined ‘Our Vocation, Our Calling’. This year, we want to examine who we are as individuals, as a community and, in particular, who our students are in God’s sight. We believe that through having a closer and deeper relationship with God, we are equipped to serve Him in the important roles that He calls us to fulfil.

Semester 2 will see some staffing changes across our Middle School. We welcome Mrs Christie Waight and Mrs Kim McLure back from family leave, returning to part time positions across the ATD and HPE faculties. Mr Graham Barton, will step down from his Year 8 Coordinator position, being replaced by Mrs Renee Garing in an interim appointment, alongside her Year 7 leadership responsibilities for second semester. We anticipate appointing a new Year 8 coordinator for 2019. I would like to take this opportunity to recognise the wonderful leadership Mr Barton has offered our Campus and more broadly Christian College over the past 6 years. His ability to come alongside students and their families, maintaining structure and accountability in the difficult years of adolescent behaviour, whilst reflecting Love and Grace within his servant leadership has been remarkable and truly a blessing to many students, parents and staff. Thank you.

Semester 1 Summative Academic Reports are currently being finalised and will be delivered electronically and available for viewing through the Parent Portal, via the ‘Reports’ tab in SEQTA Engage on Thursday 19th July (Week 1 Term 3). I trust you have an enjoyable and refreshing break with your families and we look forward to seeing you when school resumes for students on Tuesday 17th July.

 

Kindest regards,

Mr Tony Costa

May I take this opportunity to thank you for your support and prayers throughout what has been a very busy first Semester. It has been wonderful to witness the student growth, development and learning throughout this term. There have been so many highlights and opportunities for our students, new friendships forged and memories created. I wish to recognise the efforts of the Bellarine Staff team throughout this semester. They have facilitated incredibly rich learning experiences for our students, alongside working collegiately in developing their professional practice. We are blessed to have staff who teach Christianly and see the development of the whole student as a priority.

On Monday our staff will commence a two and a half day retreat, an intentional time of growing and reflection in our relationship with Christ. Through this time our staff will consider the opportunities to further build a community of faith and in turn, nurturing the faith of the young people in our care. We look forward to hearing many great speakers that will enrich us during this time.

Semester 2 will see some staffing changes, as we wish Mrs Theresa Drewer all of God’s blessings in her pregnancy. We welcome Mr Aaron Loats who will teach the 6S class and Ms Ngare Knight, who will be teaching the Year 1D class during Mrs Chakir’s Long Service Leave. I trust you will have an enjoyable and refreshing break with your families and we look forward to seeing you when school resumes for students on Tuesday, 17th July.

I am not sure about you but I have been recently noticing more and more advertisements for End of Financial Year Sales. The idea that you can get more stuff for half the price or even less is extremely appealing but my husband always says it is only beneficial if you really need it in the first place!

In thinking about the value of the ‘stuff’ available in EOFYS it made me start to wonder about how we consider the value in the stuff of education? How do we define the value of what sometimes is a work in progress rather than a finished product? Does our measure of success look the same for everyone? Is the value in the biggest, the brightest and the best? By whose definition is the biggest, the brightest and the best?  

Our society constantly reinforces that ‘bigger is better’ and ‘more is best’ however I wonder sometimes that if our focus is on quantity rather than quality, we don’t miss the opportunity to see the enormous value in the things we can’t put on the shelf, like our core College values of Love, Truth, Grace, Faith and Hope.

 

A beautiful example of the value in the ‘stuff’ of education at Christian College Geelong was the recent Choral Evening. Students from all campuses performed and provided an experience that was priceless. We are blessed to see so many of these opportunities for our students right across the College where they can explore the value in the ‘stuff’ of education for themselves and ultimately discover their own unique gifts and talents.  

Our intrinsic worth and value is strengthened in the knowing that God has a perfect plan for each and every one of our lives. In Ephesians 2:10 it says ‘For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’(NIV). We recognize that what is most valuable is the precious gift of Jesus and the promise of the riches of the kingdom of Heaven.

So if you have the opportunity during this mid semester break to enjoy the value of EOFY sales my prayer is for you to rejoice in the value of what it is to be part of Christian College.

As our Term draws to a close I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of all staff at Junior School to thank you, our parents and families, for your generous support of our community. We feel truly blessed to be able to work with you in providing a rich and connected environment for our students. It was wonderful to see opportunities for this connection strengthened through the recent Student Learning Conferences and my hope is that these were a valuable time for you to gain further insight into your child as a learner.

Have a safe and blessed mid semester break and I look forward to seeing you next term.

Warm Regards

The End of Term 2

We have reached the end of Term 2 and it has been a term full of achievements, challenges and community support.

The achievements have been the learning that has taken place in and outside the classrooms. We have seen our Science students visit Deakin University to mix with students from other Geelong schools in the spirit of collaboration. In our Mathematics classes we have students engaged in their learning as they work in groups to determine the solutions. On the rivers and the rock faces our students have tested their own resolve and not only improve their skills, but build greater resilience.

The musicians are currently in Daylesford at their Music camp where they have been practising for eight plus hours per day, honing their skills and working as a team.

The challenges have been coping with, and adapting to, the loss of our heart of the school in the Library and Administration area. This not only dislocated our staff as they no longer had a staff room to meet and plan their curriculum, we had students also losing their gathering point in the library. It reinforced our belief that the library is central to so much of what we do in our daily busyness.

The challenge has also been to rebuild and try to ensure our students’ learning is not disrupted. The opportunity that the fire has created is for students to see that they can return to learning with a clear focus.

The community support came from parents, students and the wider community. I had the privilege of visiting the Belmont Fire Brigade to thank those who so courageously worked hard to ensure the fire was put out quickly to minimise the damage and save valuable assets. Their actions were remarkable to witness. Emails of support from students and parents lifted our spirits and we all felt that our community were with us all the way.

We wish all our students and families a restful holiday and trust that all shall return refreshed and eager for the term ahead. It will be the last full term for our Year 12 students and I am sure they will ensure that their work will be up to date and revision undertaken to ensure mastery.

To our staff I wish to recognise their efforts throughout the term. They have led the learning alongside developing their own teaching practice. We are blessed to have staff who teach Christianly and see the development of the whole student as a priority.

Our staff are to enter on Monday, a two and a half day retreat where all staff gather to explore our relationship with God. We will hear many great speakers that will enrich us in all ways.

I wish you all blessings in God’s light.

In the second half of Term 2, Prep T have been focusing on weather and how it affects the world around us. Our studies have focused on a variety of areas, such as the different seasons, the way in which weather influences our behaviour and the clothing we wear, using different vocabulary to describe weather and choosing appropriate symbols to represent it. We have also investigated the way in which changes in weather affect animals, such as migratory animals and their incredible journeys across the world and animals that hibernate, focusing on Australia’s only hibernating marsupial, the endangered Mountain Pygmy Possum.  

Our investigations also had our students posing questions about weather phenomena such as clouds, lightning, thunder and rainbows in which we were able to conduct further investigations based on our questioning. In helping us to understand clouds more thoroughly, students conducted a rain experiment, creating their own ‘rain clouds’ with shaving cream and food dye.

We are very excited to announce that during the holidays our College Maintenance Department will be busy refurbishing our Prep Classrooms in readiness for early Term 3. The classrooms will be upgraded with new flooring, cupboards, paintwork and furniture.  Until all of the works are complete the Prep children will be happily ensconced in a Middle School classroom that has been set up to suit the needs of our youngest students.

Once completed we’re looking forward to welcoming the Preps back into their new abode. The classrooms will be well organised to maximise the use of space, with purpose built furniture and storage facilities to enhance the learning environment. The design of the new rooms will be relaxed and comfortable, enabling the students to confidently engage in experiential learning and work collaboratively with their Teachers and peers.

We thank you in anticipation for your patience with this project as our vision for the Prep Classrooms and also other areas of the Bellarine Campus undergoing refurbishment, come to fruition.

In the first two weeks of Term 3, our Year 7 students will be participating in a unique and exciting learning experience. For these two weeks, regular core classes will make way for a dynamic cross-curriculum project that embraces:

  • The Design Thinking process of immersion, synthesis, ideation, prototype and feedforward
  • A focus on three particular 21st Century skills – collaboration, problem-solving and self-regulation
  • A real-world investigation into the issue of sustainability, utilising the Sustainable Development Goals outlined by the United Nations
  • An assessment approach that acknowledges the learning process, not just the final product

Sustainability takes on many forms, as evidenced by the fact that the UN has set targets in 17 different areas including poverty, food security, renewable energy, responsible production and consumption, and resilient infrastructure and industry. Students will be guided through a process of selecting an area of sustainability of interest to them, identifying a specific problem at either a local or global scale and proposing a potential solution to that problem.

The project commences on Tuesday, July 17th and will conclude on Friday, July 27th, when students are given the opportunity to “pitch” their solution to a stakeholder from an organisation with a vested interest in sustainability.

This is sure to be a thoroughly engaging fortnight for all our Year 7 students. The teaching staff responsible for implementing this unique curriculum are very excited to be working with the Year 7 students as they, as global citizens, take on the “big issue” of sustainability and develop the necessary skills for the 21st Century environment.

Further details for Year 7 families regarding the two-week program

  • Commences on Tuesday, July 17th and concludes on Friday, July 27th
  • All Year 7 electives will run as normal during their regular timeslots
  • LOTE Japanese and Indonesian will run as normal, except for classes on Tuesday July 17th and Wednesday July 18th
  • Students will still be involved in several PE sessions throughout the program. These will not be run during their normal HPE periods
  • All other periods during the two weeks will be devoted to the Sustainability project
  • Students are to wear full PE uniform for the two weeks of the program
  • An excursion related to this project has been planned for Thursday July 19th. A general permission form will be sent out to all families and this will include the various locations that your child may visit

We are looking forward to working alongside the Year 7 students as they explore the many problems in our world today arising around the issue of sustainability. We are excited to see what they will come up with as they immerse themselves in this real world issue.

Once again we had a terrific day out at the Science and Engineering Challenge at the CADET Centre at Deakin University. Students were involved in activities such as building catapults, bionic hands and at the end of the day we were invited into the high voltage room for a demonstration of lighting on the Tesla Coils to the tune of Star Wars. The students really worked well in their teams and never gave up, they were outstanding. At the end of the day we placed 3rd out of seven schools in the Geelong region a pretty good effort! A couple of student quotes below!

I really enjoyed using hands on problem solving skills to complete the challenges - Jessica Seller

I really enjoyed it because it’s challenging my way of thinking and motivating me to create things - Khin Khin Sumon

The tesla coils at the end of the day were “electrifying” -  Joshua Weigl

With the end of semester upon us we would like to remind parents of the assessment process delivered via the Christian College Parent Portal. 

Both formative assessment (focusing on the early stages of learning) and summative assessment (focusing on the conclusion of learning)) have been delivered throughout the semester in the form of  ‘In Time’ reports to all year levels. These In Time assessments are carefully linked to the Australian Curriculum strands, content descriptions and elaborations in each subject. 

In addition to our In Time assessments in week 1 of Term 3, families will receive an overall Summative Report which will provide a homeroom comment, a summary of progress in ‘Self Management’ and a snapshot of academic achievement in all subject areas. Subject academic progress will be shown by a dot on a grading line labelled as:

Not Yet Achieving the standard = E,E+

Approaching the Expected Standard = D,D+

Achieving the Expected Standard = C,C+

Exceeding the Standard = B, B+

Far Exceeding the Standard = A, A+

The Summative Report system is used throughout the College, Prep-12.

It is important to note that subject grades are a culmination of all summative In-Time reporting grades delivered throughout the semester.

 

We hope that you find the reporting system informative throughout the semester and value your feedback.

Last week saw the 18th running of the RoboCup Junior Geelong Regional Event at the Highton Middle School Campus. The event was an exhibition of STEAM at its practical best. This year’s event attracted 44 teams from 11 schools, and 136 students. The Sports and Aquatic Centre was a hive of activity with wall to wall problem solvers, engineers, programmers and artists all showing off their skills. Students competed in Robot Rescue, Robot Soccer and the more creative On Stage League. On Stage is where robots act out a story or dance along to a musical score.

 

Christian College was successful in taking out four out of the five different competitions that were conducted.  Middle School was represented well with multiple team entries in both the On Stage Novice division and Simple Simon Soccer competition.  Bradley Cochrane, Brandon Murphy, and Kade Robinson of "The Terminators" took first overall in the On Stage division, while Kate Martin and Isla Henley of team "Kite" took second.  A strong showing from Max Daley, Riley Harrison, and Bailey Janssen (Da Boys) also impressed highly.  Jack Gordon and Ewan Hayden (Elite Bots) as well as Matthew Anderson and Blake Nobel (RALPH) fell outside the top spots but demonstrated great creativity and coding skill.  Middle School took another first place spot in the Simple Simon Soccer division with Alex Corinaldi, Olivia Bykersma, Sam Coleman, and Martin Dean (Super Mario Brothers) taking the win.  Congratulations to all of the competing teams as it takes a tremendous amount of dedication and skill to be competition ready.  The teams are all fired up in preparing for state finals at University of Melbourne in August and the National Finals to be held at Melbourne Park in September.

A new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) program has been introduced to our Year 2 students this year.

Throughout Semester 1 the Year 2 students have designed and built a robot through exploration of design possibilities and mechanical concepts. They programmed their robots using block coding software NXT to create movement, sensors to manipulate inputs and loops to control repeating actions. During their Visual Art lessons, the creative minds of the Year 2 students have been engaged in a multitude of design options and the students have created two and three-dimensional artworks around the topic ‘Robots’.

The end result of this interdisciplinary approach to learning, and also being afforded the input of a team of extremely experienced and talented teachers, is highly engaged students who not only see how closely different disciplines can be connected in order to achieve meaningful learning and a worthwhile outcome, but students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration and develop the ability to employ creative processes.

This is a wonderful example of the development of the teaching and learning within the College to achieve the ‘learning the matters’ in the 21st Century and to prepare our students for the life-long journey that lies beyond.

This particular unit of work culminated earlier this week in an Exhibition where the students shared their learning journey, their creative artwork and robots in action, with their families. It was very exciting and rewarding for all to see the enthusiasm and engagement of the students as they presented their robots and we look forward with anticipation to seeing the continuation of this wonderful work throughout Semester 2.

What a blessing it was to attend the very first choir performance for our Prep students. As our little ones took to the stage all holding hands ready to perform it was hard not to feel proud of all that they have achieved so far this year.

They melted hearts as they sang ‘With a Little Help from my Friends’ as they opened the annual Christian College choir evening.

The Sound of Music medley performed with the Junior School choir was also wonderful to listen to and watch.

It is so encouraging seeing our students self esteem and confidence developing.

I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank both Ms. Kirsten Camm-Bartle and Ms. Kate Notini for all of the encouragement, support and guidance that they have given our prep students during Music lessons so far this year.

I will look forward to the next time I get to see our students perform.

Last week the year 11 VCAL students went to Science Works to take part in the Museum Victoria "Sporty Maths" program. The program involves the students using hands on activities to measure and record data which they then take back to the classroom to analyse.


Students took part in testing their strength, speed and skill in a variety of sports including wheelchair racing, sprinting, basketball and gymnastics judging. The program is a great way to make learning maths skills fun in an environment out of the classroom. It is programs like these that allows students to gain and develop important maths skills in a hands on practical environment. They can then take these skills into their work place each Friday where they are gaining valuable industry experience.

Over the past week we have appreciated the support of the City of Greater Geelong in observing the use of our car parking area outside the Geelong Bowling lanes. Following our observations of parking continuing to occur in undesignated carparks, we are working with the council to improve safety in this area. I would also like to remind parents that the carpark at the rear of the school is a STAFF car park only. We have observed and taken note of vehicles that are currently using this carpark for student drop off and pick up and would respectfully request that this area remains available to staff car parking only.

Thanking you in anticipation of your support.

The Year Three and Four children were very excited to share the work that they have been doing in Integrated Studies this term with their peers about Living Things. Each group of children were responsible for researching, collaborating and presenting their information in a variety of ways, including a diorama, posters, power point presentations and labelled models. The children capably and confidently explained about the animals they researched, sharing their knowledge with each other. This was another fine example of the children collaborating to extend their learning.

As our students prepare to finish their first Semester at school in Prep they spent time this week reflecting on all that they have achieved so far. They have had so many opportunities to celebrate ‘The Learning that Matters’ as they begin to discover their gifts and talents.

They were asked to remember what they loved doing at school, what they had learnt, and what they would like to learn.

It has been an incredible journey of learning both socially and academically for them all so far this year and this was evident in their reflections.

Yesterday, Year 5 students had the opportunity to set up a Travel Expo in the library.  Their displays showcased a wide range of learning across the subjects.  Additionally, this event had a clear focus on growing in a range of soft skills such as collaboration, having ‘grit’ (persevering) and especially planning. 

Several parents commented saying, “We never had opportunities like this when we were in school.”  The reason for that may be that the development of a range of desirable dispositions has become a hot topic in education, and Christian College is committed to providing for its students an ‘education that matters’. 

We are living in a complex world, and giving students an ability to ‘know what to do when they don’t know what to do’ is a worthwhile endeavour.  Over the past two terms, student were invited to plan some of their own time, experience very real challenges in working with others, and focus on the idea of craftsmanship.  The Travel Expo was a wonderful opportunity to share their learning journey with their loved ones.

This year the Christian College VCAL students have developed a relationship with the Tallis Street Campus of Northern Bay College and are working with them on projects around building a vegetable garden and integrating a farmers market program into their school.

Last week the Yr 11 VCAL students took their learning from a recent visit to the "Farmers Place" in Freshwater Creek to teach the students at Tallis Street about making pizzas and discovering where in the world our foods comes from. The students made pizzas with Grade 5's and then talked about the distance the ingredients to make these pizzas had travelled and how much food we import from overseas. They discussed together what foods could be grown in the vegetable garden at school to make pizzas and discovered reasons about why it is good to grow your own food or to purchase from local farmers and producers instead of importing it from overseas. 

While we were there the Northern Bay students were also able to show the Christian College students how their school day runs and how they show respect and friendship to each other and to those visiting their classrooms.  

The students then enjoyed eating the pizzas and developing further the relationships that they are building together. Our continued support offered from Northern Bay College in this program allows our students to further develop important skills and allows both schools to discover and develop future programs together.

Last week during our Celebration of Learning conferences I had a few parents ask me what digraphs and split digraphs are. Their children have been trying to explain what they are and how they are used. but there seems to be some confusion.

I thought I would send home a couple of posters for you that you can print off if you wish, which may help you. I have also put the definitions to both terms below. 

If you have any further questions regarding these terms please do not hesitate to ask.

 

 

digraph is two letters (two vowels or two consonants or a vowel and a consonant), which together make one sound (as in the words tail, boat, found or read).

 

When a digraph is split by a consonant it becomes a split digraph.  For example:

  • wrote – the 'oe' here make one sound. The 'oe' digraph is split by the 't'
  • lake – the 'ae' here make one sound. The 'ae' digraph is split by the 'k'.
  • complete – the 'ee' here make one sound. The 'ee' digraph is split by the 't'.

The Year 8 Community Service Elective class have worked with children in daycare, kindergarten, primary schools as well as an aged care home, visiting each week during class time over the last two terms, building strong relationships and making a positive difference to the lives of others.

The semester ended this week with an excursion to a local women’s shelter where they learnt about the role of the center and cooked pasta meals for the residents as well as homeless people in Geelong. They also prepared care packs for local homeless people, filled with toiletries, snacks and water and, most importantly, a personal message of friendship and hope written by the students. The Salvation Army will distribute these.

Jackie, a Geelong local and talented artist who has been homeless and living in her car for over ten years, spoke to the students about the challenges she has faced. The students found her story to be both moving and insightful.

The excursion also included a visit to the Geelong Waterfront, where they met with a Ben, who ‘lives rough’ by the Cunningham Pier. He shared the sad story of his life, including some of the circumstances that led to him being homeless.

Over the morning, students gained a deeper understanding of homelessness, realizing that every homeless person has a story that, sadly, often includes family breakdown and a lack of the opportunities and support our students take for granted.

Students were humbled by the heart-rending stories they heard and, in future, will be unlikely to ‘judge a book by its cover’.

The Year 5’s this week performed the creation stories they had written to the Year 2’s. In small groups, students wrote, rehearsed and then performed a short piece of theatre inspired by the continents and countries they have been developing in Geography.

The Year 7’s, meantime, have been developing Commedia dell’Arte performances – which they presented to the Year 1’s. For this task, students worked collaboratively to develop a short piece of theatre using stock characters and status play.

The Year 8’s too have had a busy time developing small group performances – this time for the Year 3’s. Groups chose a picture story book to adapt for the stage, focusing on both physical and vocal expression – there was a bear hunt, a green sheep, as well as a bunny named Brad.

A huge thank you to students for the energy and enthusiasm you continue to bring to this subject – I am really looking forward to what Semester 2 might bring…

To finish off a term of learning about push and pull forces in Year 2’s “Awesome Forces” unit, students had been set the challenge to design and create a vehicle that will move using push and pull forces. In addition to this, a further challenge was to design and make ramps with different surfaces. The purpose of this was to test how a push and pull force may change how a vehicle moves according to the ramps surface, the ramp gradient and the push and pull force that may be required.

 

There has been so much intrinsic learning in this task including planning, designing, creating, problem solving, collaboration and discussion. Our knowledge and understanding, which we have discovered and learnt over this term have culminated in being able to both respond verbally, and write deep reflections and observations regarding our thoughts, opinions and scientific knowledge. This has also connected with building our BLP muscles and our feelings on the Reapo and Buska roads.

 

Forces are indeed awesome in Year 2!

Summative vs Formative - In Time Reporting Update

 

With the end of semester upon us we would like to remind parents of the assessment process delivered via the Christian College Parent Portal. 

 

Both formative assessment (focusing on the early stages of learning) and summative assessment (focusing on the conclusion of learning)) have been delivered throughout the semester in the form of  ‘In Time’ reports  to all year levels. These In Time assessments are carefully linked to the Australian Curriculum strands, content descriptions and elaborations in each subject. 

 

In addition to our In Time assessments in week 1 of Term 3, families will receive an overall Summative Report which will provide a homeroom comment, a summary of progress in ‘Self Management’ and a snapshot of academic achievement in all subject areas. Subject academic progress will be shown by a dot on a grading line labelled as:

 

Not Yet Achieving the standard = E,E+

Approaching the Expected Standard = D,D+

Achieving the Expected Standard = C,C+

Exceeding the Standard = B, B+

Far Exceeding the Standard = A, A+

 

The Summative Report system is used throughout the College, Prep-12.

It is important to note that subject grades are a culmination of all summative In-Time reporting grades disseminated throughout the semester.

 

We hope that you find the reporting system informative throughout the semester and value your feedback.

Year 10 Geography in Semester 1 is called 'Environmental Change and Management' and one aspect of this course is investigating the major challenges to the sustainability of our environment and planet. This includes pollution, deforestation, climate change and habitat loss.

One of the aims of geographers is to promote a greater understanding of these important issues and behave in ways that demonstrate a respect for the earth. Hence, students were charged with a long-term project to make a positive impact on the environment. I am so impressed with the efforts of all students and would like to acknowledge the impact they have made.

Ethan Alston and Oliver Doull – participated in a citizen science project monitoring fur seal populations in Port Phillip Bay

Maddie Benson, Kamarah Blackhall, Livvy Chadwick and Brigitte Vlakancic – raised $350 through their trivia night for the Australian Marine Conservation Society, protecting the Great Barrier Reef

Amalee Freestone and Lola Osta-Meier – conducted a school clean-up and then collaborated with Lorne P-12 to conduct their own clean-up

Kieran Lad, Pierson Lang and Lachlan Moloney – conducted a clean-up at Barwon Valley Fun Park, preventing rubbish from reaching waterways

Aria Mousavi and Sam Wyeth – installed a bin at Sam's mountain bike track and conducted a clean-up of the area

Josh Newton – investigated the school Papercut program and identified a massive discrepancy in the calculation of trees 'consumed' by the school paper use. Josh proposed changes to school paper use, such as using recycled paper or setting default printing to double-sided. He also supported a tree-planting initiative at Surf Coast campus

Seth Norton and Max Parrotta – planted strawberry plants for their families to reduce plastic wastage and grow their own organic food

Josie Stewart – conducted a beach clean-up at Ocean Grove, collecting a large range of rubbish

The Year 7 students were fortunate to experience the Hope Tour who came to our College on Monday afternoon. The group performed songs and a dance by KULTUREBREAK, did magic tricks and told stories, all with the message of HOPE, one of our College values.

The purpose of the tour was to engage our students, make them aware of how building our resilience comes from firstly building resistance, being grateful for what we have and also learning to ask for help when we need support. 

We were also blessed to have a visit from TIMOMATIC who performed one of his songs. He then spoke about his struggles and the personal tragedy he has faced in his past with losing his mentor and friend. He talked about how he needed to keep the momentum going and keeping the right people around him for support. The students really enjoyed his message and performance and judging from the level of participation of our students, we believe the message was successfully conveyed to all who attended.

The magic tricks performed by Andino left the student’s mesmerized and engaged. His talents using the Rubrics Cube and his trick using a rope left many perplexed but in awe. He used this talent to incorporate the GOSPEL message and point the students to the relationship we can have with God through Jesus.

Our thanks to Charles and all the crew from the Hope Tour who generously gave their time and effort to perform to our students.

On Thursday morning 4G had lots of fun cooking. Maeve was interested to learn about the sorts of vegetables growing in the veggie patch and a group of students harvested the silverbeet and other leafy greens to use in a warm salad.  Emme said she enjoyed being part of a team and using recipes to cook the food. The smells coming from the canteen were amazing! Molly enjoyed taste testing the food and everyone was involved in choosing the plants, washing and preparing to use in the cooking. Everyone in 4G were having so much fun and learning a lot along the way. Thanks to Mrs McDonald who taught us plenty of new skills today.

It has come to our attention that during school drop off and pick up times there have been a number of parents not driving within the speed limit or paying attention to the speed humps.

Can I please remind you that our little people are constantly using the car park and footpath areas to enter both the school and the kindergarten. 

If we could please make an effort to always take care and keep to the speed limit when driving through the kindergarten and school grounds it would be greatly appreciated.

Last week saw the 18th running of the RoboCup Geelong Junior Regional Event at the Highton Middle School Campus. The event was an exhibition of STEAM at its practical best. This year’s event attracted 44 teams from 11 schools and 136 students. The Sports and Aquatic Centre was a hive of activity with wall to wall problem solvers, engineers, programmers and artists all showing off their skills. Students competed in Robot Rescue, Robot Soccer and the more creative On Stage League. On Stage is where robots act out a story or dance along to a musical score.

Christian College was successful in taking out four out of the five different competitions that were conducted.

Standard Soccer                 InsOMNia:  Deakin Carr, Shaun Altmann, Pierson Lang and Jack Peace

Simple Simon Soccer         Super Mario Brothers:   Sam Coleman, Alex Corinaldi, Martin Dean, Olivia Bykersma

Experienced On Stage      The RoboCup Circus:     Abigail Hodgson, Ruby Lockman

Novice On Stage               The Terminators:   Brandon Murphy, Bradley Cochrane, Kade Robinson

The Year 10 Systems class that were not competing ran the Soccer League of the competition. They did a great job of handling everything from refereeing to the compilation of results. The students all gained great experience in event organization and leading other students.

The Standard League Soccer Final was particularly exciting with two Christian College Senior School Teams playing off in the final. InsOMNia only won 4-3 over Yeet through a golden goal during overtime.

The teams are all fired up in preparing for state finals at University of Melbourne in August and the National Finals to be held at Melbourne Park in September.

The College would like to congratulate the following students on their performance at the recent State and Regional Cross-Country Championships. Bethany Dean (8G) and Bianca Pocklington (8G) represented the College at the Victorian All Schools XC Championships held last Saturday at Bundoora Park. In a field of 80 runners, Bethany finished 14th and Bianca 39th in the U15 Girls event. This was a great result for both girls, who each ran strongly against a quality field of young athletes. Both girls are to be commended on their efforts at these State Championships.

 

Maddy Grunberg (B05D), Harry Morphet (B06D), Ben Bowers (B06D), Emily Lawrie (6R) and Martin Dean (6R) represented the College at the Western Metropolitan Region Cross-Country Championships held yesterday at Brimbank Park. On behalf of the College we congratulate these five students on qualifying for the Regional Championships, based on excellent running performances at the recent District and Division Championship events. They each acquitted themselves very well in their particular age group, running strongly on a very demanding 3km cross-country course. As a result of their performances on the day, Maddy (4th) and Martin (12th) have qualified for the State Championships to be held early next term. This is the second year in a row that these two students have qualified for the State Championships, which is a great achievement.

And just like that – another term is over! Over the past 10 weeks, Year 9 students taking part in ‘The Editorial’ elective have developed creative pieces, news articles, podcasts and even ‘vlogs’ (video blogs) – all under their chosen theme of transformation. For those who perhaps haven’t had the chance already, the blog – ‘Tranforming Bellarine’ – can still be accessed through the following link (just use your Christian College Geelong login): https://theeditorial.myccg.net.au/2018bellarine/

Below is the work of Elizabeth Stoltman, who wanted to look forward with the Year 9’s…

Victoria Kent
Editorial Elective Teacher

“Our Future And Our Fears”

In three and a half years, the Year 9 students from Christian College will have graduated. “We’re heading into the stage where it is going to be a massive change: from high school to the real world,” Year 9 student Tiarna Beck said as she described her feelings about the future. “That is a scary experience and I can talk on the behalf of everyone when I say it’s going to be a very scary experience.”

Everyone who has the opportunity to get an education also has the opportunity to graduate: this is not an experience only a few people have, at least in Australia. Why is this experience scary for students? I specifically interviewed a few Year 9 students from Christian College Bellarine to try to find an answer.

“People are worried, interested and confused,” Dana Ford, another Year 9 student, said. “I’m really excited to graduate . . . but scared to fail, but I guess everyone is,” Dana added. Everyone interviewed expressed that they were afraid that they would not be successful. As Tiarna Beck said so perfectly,” In one minute you can be going so successfully and the next moment you could be homeless.” Uncertainty, it seems, makes this experience so scary. Emma Barton, another student, confirmed this, “I’m scared I won’t accomplish anything in the future.” Will you be successful? Only you can control this: perhaps the pressure we receive creates that tension as well.

As a Year 9 myself, I certainly have not graduated yet. I have interviewed a teacher instead that has—Mrs. Kent. “I was certain that I wanted to do something specific, but uncertain about if I would be able to achieve it,” she expressed. Mrs. Kent, like many, has changed her ‘career’ multiple times before she became a teacher. From wanting to be a hairdresser, a lawyer and then a dentist in her youth, she became a Journalist for 13 years. In response to my prompt of high school pressure, Mrs Kent said, “I can see the point of the pressure. It is so people try their best and work hard. I think a lot of the pressure comes from within.” I then asked Mrs. Kent of any advice she might have for us students. “Pick something you want to do, even if it’s something you want to do now but might not necessarily want to do in the future.” She then continued, “If you’re not going to enjoy it, you are not going to do very well at it.”

Is it perhaps that this scary experience is due to the pressure that we put on ourselves—to be successful? This does not invalidate our experiences; however, it might be our unfair expectations to be perfect that causes this tension. As Mrs. Kent says: “There is no such thing as perfection, but you can strive for excellence.”

Treasured moments as the children of 4R  took on the role of mentor and Art instructor with their parents and loved ones. Parents were warmly invited to spend an afternoon creating alongside their child. The children rose to the occasion and enjoyed taking the lead by stimulating and encouraging their parents to become an art maker and tap into their inner creativity. Parents were also able to experience the virtual reality Goggles where images could be brought to life with the click of some buttons.

The hours passed quickly and there was a special energy as parents found themselves drawn into a world where the focus was creating an object of whimsical fun. The memories created completed a journey and resulted in affirmations and positive joy.

Our theme this term was largely food  Art and stimulating the imagination through this fun theme resulted in quirky paintings of ice creams with a generous splash of colour and an assortment of decorations that children dream about.

Our clay activity was ‘The Designer Donut’ and the students were quick to embrace this and create some wonderfully imaginative and fun  ‘Designer Donuts’.

 I would like to thank the students for their enthusiasm and wonderful efforts this term.  I also look forward to providing this opportunity to  4M next term.

Hello everyone,

17 weeks down and we’re halfway through the year!!

It’s been a really productive semester, we’ve been getting our study done whilst having a bit of fun. Although it was pretty shocking news to hear about the fire, it didn’t set us back too much. In fact, on the bright side we had a couple of days off school! I mean, we studied at home for a few days (in our pjs). We have all done really well to soldier on and work around disruptions this term, even surviving the GAT, our longest assessment of the year.

Even though school’s out, there are still great things on the agenda for our community including the Music Camp which is already underway and the Prefects heading over to East Timor during the break.

We have a lot to look forward to next term as well, including House Drama and Wearable Art competitions which we can all get involved in!

That’s all from me for Semester 1, I hope you all enjoy the well-earned holiday break.

This week the Year 5’s presented their music to the Year 3 and 4 students at the Bellarine campus. This is an important part in the progression of student’s skills on their instrument and in their ensemble.

They have been working very well alongside our team of music teachers to learn new instruments, extend already developed skills and share the joy of playing in an ensemble.

Learning an instrument requires commitment and discipline, these skills transfer into all areas of our life, and help add value to the things we are passionate about whatever they may be!

Parents will be invited to a final concert in Term 4 to share in their child’s musical journey for 2018.

My eyes were opened on Thursday to the incredible creativity flowing through the Junior School. The day began with Arlo Costa (Year 3) presenting information to the Year 1 and 2 students about his passion for Blue Tongue lizards. What a wonderful job he did too, preparing a screen presentation, creating a diorama of the habitat and bringing in his 3 Blue tongue lizards for the students to interact with.

At the same time in the canteen and the veggie patch 4G were busy at work, harvesting silverbeet, broccoli and spinach to cook up some healthy snacks, including carrot biscuits and warm silverbeet salad. 

I then moved on to the 3B classroom where the students were making trams - there was a ‘friendship tram’, an original yellow and green tram, an Indigenous 'community' tram and a Christian College tram including the logo and College values. The students in 3B were practising collaboration skills as they had to listen to each others’ ideas and designed their work as a team. 

The energy at the Junior campus was buzzing, it was learning at its best!

Last Thursday, 16 year 7 students visited the Geelong Cats stadium and spent a day looking at the issues of Cyberbullying, the role of a bystander, strategies to seek help, gaming and that of personal identity. The Victoria Police came to talk about online bullying and associated issues. There were a number of groups who made a short film about the various issues discussed. The students will play the movies in assemblies in order to inform and remind their peers the importance of these issues.  Overall a great day of learning.

Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth

LSAY is managed and funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training, with support from state and territory governments.

The Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY) track young people as they move from school into further study, work, and other destinations. LSAY provides a rich source of information about young people and their pathways, helping researchers and policymakers make educated decisions about youth policies.

Survey participants enter the study when they are about 15 years old and are contacted once a year until they are 25.

Information on a wide range of school and post-school topics is collected, including :

  • student achievement and aspirations
  • attitudes to school
  • social background
  • vocational and further education
  • employment and job seeking
  • satisfaction with some aspects of life

 

‘Generation Z at School’ - June 2018

Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY) is a study that follows young Australians over 10 years, from their mid-teens to mid-twenties, as they move from school to further study, work and into adulthood.

Information shared by the newest group of LSAY participants, who began the survey in 2015, gives insights into Australia’s Generation Z at school.

Born between 1995 & 2009 ‘Generation Z’ currently comprises the majority of Australia’s children and teenagers.  They are said to be more independent, entrepreneurial & globally-minded than their adolescent predecessors.  As digital-natives, Gen Z have grown up in a connected world & instinctively rely on social media & the internet to establish, grow & maintain relationships with friends & peers.

Born in 2001 & 2001, LSAY’s most recent group of young people connected the survey programme in 2015.  The survey will follow them for 10 years up until age 25.  The first two years of data collected at ages 25.  The first two years of data collected at ages 15 & 16 provide some exciting insights into the lives of Australia’s Gen Z & shows how they’re preparing for & navigating the transition from compulsory schooling to further study, the workplace & beyond.

The Junior School community thank the Music Department and Music Staff for their incredible efforts in teaching and coaching the students to prepare for these evenings.

Year 3 Swimming Carnival (2 photos)

On Friday 15th June, the Year 3 students participated in the end of term swimming carnival at Middle School. It was pleasing to see so many parents and grandparents attending this event. One of the highlights was the visit by Middle School students who will be competing at the School Sport Australian Championships in July. Madison Cooper and Dylan Logan were great assistants on the day and four Year 3 students had a race against both students at the end of the day.

All students participated with great enthusiasm, earning valuable house points during the novelty events. Flynn were the winning house on 236 points, closely followed by Penman 234 and then Burrows and Taylor on 197.

Year 2 Soccer with Pete Bradley  (1 photo)

Last Tuesday, two Year 2 classes were able to participate and have lots of fun in a soccer session run by Pete Bradley. Students had the opportunity to refine their kicking in skill activities and small games. All the students participated well and benefited from receiving tuition from a highly accredited coach. I would like to thank Pete for this great opportunity and hope to see him again in the future.

During Term 3, Year 2 students will be focusing on writing narrative texts. We will be developing our understandings around the specific structure of these texts and extending our writing craft toolbox! We will investigate a range of traditional stories and will experiment with ways we can ‘fracture fairytales’ to explore new ways of representing well known characters and stories. To help us prepare for our journey as authors we are excited to be attending a dramatic incursion on Thursday 19th of July in the Chapel. Actors from the CARP Production Company will springboard our learning by presenting ‘Classic Fairytales- With a Twist!’ This interactive performance will help us to think about traditional tales in a new context and to view characters in a new way. With the description“The fairytale characters are tired of witches, wolves and Prince Charming’s kiss, they’re bored with ‘happily ever after’ bliss! But what if they… swap stories? It could get crazy – what will happen next?... We can be sure it is going to be a fun filled experience.

The College would like to congratulate the following students on their performance at the recent State and Regional Cross-Country Championships. Bethany Dean (8G) and Bianca Pocklington (8G) represented the College at the Victorian All Schools XC Championships held last Saturday at Bundoora Park. In a field of 80 runners, Bethany finished 14th and Bianca 39th in the U15 Girls event. This was a great result for both girls, who each ran strongly against a quality field of young athletes. Both girls are to be commended on their efforts at these State Championships.

Maddy Grunberg (B05D), Harry Morphet (B06D), Ben Bowers (B06D), Emily Lawrie (6R) and Martin Dean (6R) represented the College at the Western Metropolitan Region Cross-Country Championships held yesterday at Brimbank Park. On behalf of the College we congratulate these five students on qualifying for the Regional Championships, based on excellent running performances at the recent District and Division Championship events. They each acquitted themselves very well in their particular age group, running strongly on a very demanding 3km cross-country course. As a result of their performances on the day, Maddy (4th) and Martin (12th) have qualified for the State Championships to be held early next term. This is the second year in a row that these two students have qualified for the State Championships, which is a great achievement.

The students in Years 1-4 have worked diligently this term to do spoken presentations to the class. These vary in complexity from a short 5 sentences in Year 1 to the whole story of The Hungry Caterpillar in Year 4. The children do their presentations in class and then the classmates and the teacher choose who they think would best represent their class in the school Japanese Speech Competition. This can be a very difficult task as many students would like to participate and work very hard to do well. The votes are in and the decisions have been made.
