Our Year 12 students complete their formal classes next week and the VCAL students are working towards their employment, the VCE students are busy organising their revision. There is always a degree of anxiety and even excitement, maybe of the unknown, about the coming examinations.

Our students are very well prepared and the task now is often as much for those around them as it is for the individual student. As parents or guardians the best support is to try to keep things normal. Young people face pressure in different ways and it is not unusual to see reactions you may have never seen in your child. The advice is to be patient and ensure they feel supported. It is also normal for those around them to feel unsure of what to say or do. Please contact me at school if ever you feel the need to discuss how that support may look.

Hi Parents and Friends,

Continuing in our series this term on the topic of Parenting. My hope is that the short thoughts and hints will go towards helping all of us parent better which will roll over into a more positive family life at home.

How can we avoid becoming pushover parents? We can begin by recognizing that our children are a blessing from God, and with that blessing comes an awesome responsibility. Children who fail to experience consequences for misbehavior typically grow up to become selfish, narcissistic adults who leave a trail of broken relationships in their wake.

If you believe you might be a pushover parent, ask your spouse and friends to give you feedback — and give them permission to be honest. If you're a single parent, ask yourself if you look to your kids for comfort and fear their disapproval. If so, ask God to help you develop close, nurturing friendships with adults — friends who will support you in your role as a single Mum or Dad.

By balancing love and limits, you can help your kids grow into healthy, Godly adults who — as they become moms and dads — will break the destructive cycle of pushover parenting.

If you are like me, any helpful piece of information about parenting possesses the possibility of making me a better parent.

Please get in touch with me at the College Campus if you would like to talk about any issues that are of a concern for you in your situation. It really helps to have someone who will listen to you.

Take Care,

Gary Crole
Christian College Bellarine campus Chaplain.

Modelled on the successful and innovative programs at ‘Williams House’ Kindergarten, Christian College is excited to announce that the same opportunities will be accessible to Armstrong Creek and Surf Coast families in 2017.  ‘Butterfield House’ is preparing to open its doors for local pre-schoolers and families of this region in 2017, providing for both general community access, and for children transitioning to the Christian College Surf Coast Campus in 2018 and beyond.

Further, in supporting our families in accommodating continuity of care and a calmer, quality, Early Childhood experience, Butterfield House is delighted to announce that we are preparing to offer an day care option alongside our preschool programs from 2017.

Prekinder | Preschool | Day Care

The core of our approach to early learning is this:

- valuing personal connections,

- valuing wonder and

- valuing personal discovery.

All of these aspects are approached through a context of community and play, beautiful and thoughtfully presented environments, and generous access to outdoor spaces, including a bush kinder model.

Extensive plans are being activated to create a centre that includes the appointment of highly qualified and experienced staff. Also, the highest standards of physical spaces, such as easy ‘indoor/outdoor’ access, ample natural light, a heavy emphasis on the use of natural materials, and, the development of impressive gardens and outdoor discovery areas.

Help us spread the word to friends and family who may be interested in enrolling!

This week, Year 7 and 8 Drama students had the opportunity to witness a performance of ‘Venice in Love’ presented by Commedia dell’Arte company Make A Scene. This is a form of masked comedy that uses bold characterisation and exaggerated movement to entertain an audience. The performance was both engaging and interactive and will act as a reference point for students as they devise their own performances this term. We thank Rosa Campagnaro and Make A Scene for bringing ‘Venice in Love’ to the Middle Campus.

Last Friday during lunchtime, the annual Senior House Wearable Art Carnival was held in the Penman Quad. This House competition provides all students with an opportunity to utilise their creative talents in a House context.

Students design and create three expressive costumes inspired by their House colours and parade these on the day. Judges are invited in from outside the College community to judge the event each year.

The main reason the Wearable Art competition was devised was to provide an opportunity for those talented creative art students to be able to display their House spirit and support for their House in a way that they feel confident of what they can contribute.

The carnival showcases creativity and teamwork.  It marks the end of a considerably hectic time for all of the school community. In particular, it celebrates the end of the House Competitions for the Year 12s. It is therefore particularly significant for them.

The event serves to raise awareness of the strength and energy of the Visual Arts program within the school. It also broadens the experiences of our students and allows cross-age participation in the performances.

The costumes are judged on the following: Visual Impact, Creativity, Innovative/effective use of materials, Evidence of work/effort in design/construction, Cohesiveness/effectiveness of group presentation, music, movement etc                                        

Every year the school community is astounded by the vibrant creative costumes and this year did not disappoint.  Penman’s costumes, based on the theme of “Celebration of the Written Word” took out the trophy.  The costumes were made from recycled books from the Senior School Library.  The winning garments are on display in the Senior School foyer for those who wish to take a closer look.

Well done to all who participated!

The annual Junior School Kickball Competition was held in the last two weeks of Term 3.  

The student's demonstrated both good sportsmanship and team work throughout the tournament. It was also pleasing to see the number of students who came to support their house.  It all came down to an exciting final between Penman and Taylor. Penman were going for back to back titles while Taylor were going for their first ever. 

In staying true to the theme of 2016 with the Bulldogs first premiership in 62 years and the Cronulla Sharks first ever Rugby League title, Taylor won out on the day to achieve their first ever kickball championship. Well done to the winning Taylor team and to all involved in the competition.

On Tuesday 11th October, our Year 9 Australia’s Health elective class attended ‘The Geelong Big Stigma Wall’ held at the Geelong Performing Arts Centre. As part of Mental Health Week, the event was run by Headspace to help our community address the stigma that plays a role in preventing people from seeking help for mental issues. The students had the opportunity to take down a piece of the wall and complete various activities provided by a range of service providers from our community.

What a great time was had by all Bellarine Prep students and teachers last Friday! Our wonderful adventure began with a visit to ‘Meerkat Manor’ an indoor play centre in Ocean Grove. Students and staff alike enjoyed going down the slides and wondering through the jungle gym. This was followed by a walk along the beach and back across the top of the dunes at Point Lonsdale. We then reached our final destination Cottage by the Sea in Queenscliff.

The Preps went down onto the beautiful beach behind the cottage and participated in a sandcastle building competition and then came back to the cottage where ‘Pirate James’ (Sam Kennedy) shared his hidden treasure of chocolate frogs and coins with the Preps. Next on the agenda was bed making where there was great excitement over who was going to sleep on the top bunk! Following was a dinner of pies, sausage rolls, chips and salad then a movie it was time to go to bed. By 9pm there wasn’t a single sound in any of the dorms but by 6am the following morning we were all awake! A breakfast of cereal and pancakes was enjoyed by all campers before the parents came to collect their ‘very grown up’ Preps.

Prep camp provided a great opportunity for our Preps to develop their interpersonal skills including independence, confidence and resilience while at the same time creating an extension of our Play Based Learning and Discovery Learning programs. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this experience and congratulations to all our Prep campers!

On Wednesday morning all Year 10 students met in the Chapel for a seminar from Real Talk Australia. The seminar ‘Love and Life’ was presented by Gerard, whose enthusiasm and genuineness kept us all engaged with his message. He encouraged students to think about the way society portrays love, body image and sex and the problems that arise from media perspectives. He explained the way body language can convey love and the neurochemistry or physical intimacy, so students can consider when and with whom they want to share a physical bond. Gerard spoke openly about his journey, including his faith and the decision he has made about abstaining from physical intimacy before marriage. We have encouraged students to consider all perspectives about love and life, including the Christian perspective and your family’s perspective. I will finish with a quote from the seminar that I encourage all students to reflect upon. ‘If you stand for nothing, you will fall for everything.’

The Christian College RoboCup team recently competed in Sydney in Open League Soccer against the best from each state. This Open League is considered  the Premier competition for the two thousand plus teams competing in RoboCup Junior around Australia. Robots are built of any of the latest and best components and play in a two vs two soccer game. James Hurren competed with only one robot and  just missed out on qualifying for the finals, which was an incredible effort. Lachlan Angus and Xander Profaca showed their skills and adapted well to the adverse Sydney lighting and magnetic conditions. They qualified for the finals in second place.

Their semi-final was the game of the tournament with both teams going goal for goal in the 10 minute first half. With the scores locked at 5-5, the second half started with a flurry of goals for Lachlan and Xander, but their luck changed with a number of “hit the posts” and own goals. In the third play-off they just could not keep up with last year’s National Champion and finished a creditable 4th.

We congratulate all students for their efforts. Mr Brian Thomas is a world accredited judge and Founding Chair of RoboCup Junior and we are so fortunate to have him on staff. He is to travel to India to oversee the introduction of WRO Football (Soccer) the World Robot Olympiad in November. The development of this game was conducted by Christian College students at Villa Paloma. In 2017, Year 10 students will be developing a new soccer game where the robots use video cameras and vision control. This work is believed to be the first of its type and will revolutionise robot tournaments around the world. It is anticipated that the students will be invited to demonstrate the game at WRO 2017 in Costa Rica. We thank Brian for all of his expertise and time he takes to bring our teams to such a high level.

On Monday 10th October, Year 1 and 2 classes went on a walk around Drysdale, as part of our Integrated Studies topic ‘Our Local Community’. We looked at how Drysdale has changed since it was first settled, by observing original landmarks of the town and seeing how newer versions have been built as the needs of the town have changed.

A highlight was a visit to the Drysdale Uniting Church, where we were able to look inside at the beautiful leadlight windows and discuss how important the church was in the early days of settlement. Overall, this was a great insight into how people lived long ago in Drysdale.

Last week, 3 Year 8 classes had the opportunity to spend the day dressed in clothing from the medieval times. This was the culmination of the unit of work covered in Term 3. ‘Up Close to History’, a group from Melbourne, came to present a variety of activities which saw the students participate in, and enjoy, games, dance and music, swords and armour, and clothing from this era. The students were active participants in the day and had fun trying to play the games, dance or fight with swords whilst dressed in quite different costumes. The presenters were funny, with jokes flowing quite fast and freely, whilst still being educational. The day also saw the students sit down to a feast of Chicken, bread, cake and fruit, which reflected the food of the day.

Interested in a career with Victoria Police?

 

Victoria Police includes Police Officers, Protective Services Officers and Police Custody Officers.

To be eligible for employment with Victoria Police, you must be an Australian citizen; an Australian permanent resident; a New Zealand citizen with a valid passport; or a citizen of another country with a valid visa that provides Australian work rights.

The recruitment process encompasses a number of stages: submit application, shortlisting, interviews, background checks: offer of employment. This process may take up to 2 years. There is a demand for female applicants.

All successful applicants will be required to undergo a number of background checks including reference checks, national name and police checks, fingerprinting, declarable associations and solvency prior to employment. Progressing to undergo background checks does not guarantee an offer of employment.

To join the Victoria Police you must have completed your VCE or VCAL if you choose to join when 18 years of age. If you don’t have your VCE or VCAL, you must be 21 years of age to join. You may start the process when you turn 18 but not yet have gained your VCE/VCAL – the process will be completed after this time.

You may have a manual or automatic licence and can be on your P’s.

Teamwork is considered an important part of the job and so it is good to be part of a sporting team / have a casual job / volunteer.

If your application is successful, you will then undergo 33 weeks of training at the Academy. PSO training is 12 weeks in the Academy and it has a shorter application process. There is not an automatic transition from PSO to Police positions.

You must be emotionally intelligent, and this is why the Victoria Police do not often take applicants who are 18. These applicants are often asked to ‘go out and experience life’ first. You must wait 12months in between applications if you are unsuccessful the first time.

During the application process, your social media accounts are scrutinized, so be very careful what you post!

Last Tuesday the 11th of October, we were blessed to have Real Talk come in to speak to our Year 8 and 9 students around the topic of relationships, body language, decision making and identity. Gerrard, the guest speaker, was a very engaging presenter who captivated the students with his personal, relatable and sometimes funny stories. The students were challenged to think about what a good relationship looks like and how important it is to truly value yourself and others.

The presentation highlighted the importance for young people, knowing they are of great value, have a purpose and for them to have an understanding of the topics of relationships and sex. Young people today receive countless mixed messages about these topics, and can be unaware or confused about the precious gift they hold. It was great to be reminded that we are made in the image of God and have been created for a purpose.

Many students have commented on how much they enjoyed listening to the Real Talk and have appreciated the follow up we have done in the Health classes. The Real Talk presentation has also been followed up with a senior version at Year 10 at Senior School, something I am sure the Year 9 students will look forward to attending next year.

Modelled on the successful and innovative programs at ‘Williams House’ Kindergarten, Christian College is excited to announce that the same opportunities will be accessible to Armstrong Creek and Surf Coast families in 2017.  ‘Butterfield House’ is preparing to open its doors for local pre-schoolers and families of this region in 2017, providing for both general community access, and for children transitioning to the Christian College Surf Coast Campus in 2018 and beyond.

Further, in supporting our families in accommodating continuity of care and a calmer, quality, Early Childhood experience, Butterfield House is delighted to announce that we are preparing to offer an day care option alongside our preschool programs from 2017.

Prekinder | Preschool | Day Care

The core of our approach to early learning is this:

- valuing personal connections,

- valuing wonder and

- valuing personal discovery.

All of these aspects are approached through a context of community and play, beautiful and thoughtfully presented environments, and generous access to outdoor spaces, including a bush kinder model.

Extensive plans are being activated to create a centre that includes the appointment of highly qualified and experienced staff. Also, the highest standards of physical spaces, such as easy ‘indoor/outdoor’ access, ample natural light, a heavy emphasis on the use of natural materials, and, the development of impressive gardens and outdoor discovery areas.

Modelled on the successful and innovative programs at ‘Williams House’ Kindergarten, Christian College is excited to announce that the same opportunities will be accessible to Armstrong Creek and Surf Coast families in 2017.  ‘Butterfield House’ is preparing to open its doors for local pre-schoolers and families of this region in 2017, providing for both general community access, and for children transitioning to the Christian College Surf Coast Campus in 2018 and beyond.

Further, in supporting our families in accommodating continuity of care and a calmer, quality, Early Childhood experience, Butterfield House is delighted to announce that we are preparing to offer an day care option alongside our preschool programs from 2017.

Prekinder | Preschool | Day Care

The core of our approach to early learning is this:

- valuing personal connections,

- valuing wonder and

- valuing personal discovery.

All of these aspects are approached through a context of community and play, beautiful and thoughtfully presented environments, and generous access to outdoor spaces, including a bush kinder model.

Extensive plans are being activated to create a centre that includes the appointment of highly qualified and experienced staff. Also, the highest standards of physical spaces, such as easy ‘indoor/outdoor’ access, ample natural light, a heavy emphasis on the use of natural materials, and, the development of impressive gardens and outdoor discovery areas.

Help us spread the word to friends and family who may be interested in enrolling!
