Message from the Principal

Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends,

Stuartholme shone at our Sacred Heart Schools Conference on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 July 2019. The synergy of every aspect of our community came together to ensure our two days were the best they could be: our gardeners, caterers, maintenance and school operations ensured our facilities were beautifully presented, our staff’s hospitality and professionalism won the hearts of our 40 delegates from interstate and overseas. Our theme for our Conference was Competencies of Compassion. Our keynote speakers, Sr Maureen Glavin rscJ and Dr Stephen Brown challenged our thinking and called us forward to be more courageous. Each of our four ANZNet Sacred Heart Schools presented three workshops sharing best practice in a diverse range of areas: teaching and learning, student wellbeing and leadership, and social justice. The Sacred Heart Schools included: Kincoppal-Rose Bay, Sydney; Sacre Coeur, Melbourne; Baradene College Auckland, and schools from Korea and Taiwan. Board Chairs, Board Directors, Principals and staff treasured the connections we made and were invigorated by the sharing of our spirituality and professionalism. Sarah Daff’s vision and Kathy Wone’s implementation ensured that we were a shining example of Sacred Heart community.

This week we celebrated Book Week. We have broadened our Harry Potter focus to include “come dressed as your favourite character”, which enabled students to express their joy in reading across genres. The theme for Book Week was “Reading is my Secret Super-Power”. Acting Leader of Learning – Library Services Deb Gaggin and her team promoted and led the day with enthusiasm and a sense of fun. Every year I wonder who enjoys dressing up more – students or staff?

 

One of our most beloved events is Grandparents’ Day! Thursday we welcomed many grandparents, who were delighted with our beautiful bush setting and our fantastic facilities, finishing off our joyous morning tea with a lovely liturgy in our Chapel. I received an overwhelming positive response from our grandparents about how wonderful the school was physically as well as spiritually.

 

Last week Karen Davies, Dean of Boarding, and I attended the Isolated Children’s Parents Association (ICPA) Federal Conference in Adelaide. To be in a room with so many hard-working passionate women, who are fighting for a decent education for their children in regional, rural and remote Australia is intimidating yet inspiring. Our Stuartholme community was well represented by Patricia Mitchell OAM, Louise Martin and Nikki Macqueen making a difference at every opportunity. I was in awe of the courage and the resilience of all the ICPA women and proud that Stuartholme is a part of this community.

The last two weeks have been an intense time for Year 10 SET Plan Interviews and our Senior Subject Selection process. Deputy Principal, Deanne Johnston and Director of Studies, Shannon Lacey led their team through a very thorough process to ensure each Year 10 student understands their strengths and prepares for a rewarding senior academic program. Tom Lillyman has stepped into the role of Careers Counsellor smoothly and successfully. We are very grateful for all his work in facilitating the Careers Expo and undertaking many interviews.

During week 4 of Term 3 we have taken on the “Strive to be Kind Week”. I have had many beautiful encounters with our girls offering kind words and Kindness Cards this week. We have supported the Allison Baden-Clay Foundation by selling yellow ribbons. Stuartholme School is known as a kind place. In my time in schools over the past 35 years, I do believe kindness is our strongest quality. It is innate to our community nature. Being kind is at the centre of Jesus’ teaching and positive psychology and emotional intelligence emphasises this quality above all others. So, we cannot be complacent about being kind, we continue to strive to be kind.

Take care and God Bless,

Kristen Sharpe
Principal

Last week I had the fortune to attend, with our Principal Ms Kristen Sharpe, the 48th Annual Federal Conference of the Isolated Children’s Parents’ Association (ICPA) held in Adelaide. The breadth of issues that face our rural and remote families leaves me quite overwhelmed, but in full admiration of all the parents who strive to provide their children with the best opportunities they can. For those of us who were raised in a city or at least a large regional town, our comprehension and understanding at times, of these families’ realities is quite challenging. I found the reports from the different portfolios extremely interesting and I encourage all our families to go to the ICPA website and have a read through topics such as Boarding Schools/School Term Hostels, Distance Education, Communications, Early Childhood, Curriculum, Rural Schools/ School Transport and the Tertiary Portfolios.

These reports were accompanied by a variety of speakers from organisations such as Telstra, nbn Broadband, Improving the Wellbeing of Rural Australians and a website called ifarmwell.com.au – click here to read the flyer, PIEFA – Primary Industries Education Foundation Australia, and Qantas – click here to read about Qantas extending the number of discounted airfares from 4 per 12 months to 12. One of the presentations was provided from an Alumni of ours Mrs Patricia Mitchell OAM, whose granddaughters Alice and Isabelle Martin are with us here at Stuartholme. Her speech on the importance of ICPA certainly provided facts and figures on the work of this wonderful organisation over the last forty years. It was delightful that at the conclusion of her presentation Mrs Mitchell was presented with life membership recognition.

I am looking forward to seeing our families at the rowing regatta this Saturday and at the Boarders family BBQ. Don’t forget to contact me on kdavies@stuartholme.com if you have any concerns or questions about how your daughter is going. Wishing you and your daughter/s a happy and fulfilling second semester and I look forward to continuing to share the boarding experience with you.

Blessings to you and your families,

Karen Davies

Stuartholme’s successful camp program

I was delighted to visit our Year 9 students on camp last Thursday accompanied by one of our school psychologists Ms Natalie Morgan. The students were having a wonderful time and enjoying challenging themselves on various activities and exceeding their own expectations.

The Year 9 camp, led by Ms Nicole Bradford – Leader of Student Wellbeing, was the final year level camp for 2019 rounding off a successful camp program implemented across Years 7-10 in 2019.

This program is an integral part of the wellbeing program at Stuartholme. Scientific reports clearly show that time spent outdoors will reap rewards and has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety, the researchers say.

Connection and conversation

Last Monday evening I enjoyed attending an evening of connection and conversation with both Dearna Law our Community Liaison Manager and Barbara Roads – from Parents of Stuartholme.

The guest speaker Andrew Oberthur, a well-regarded Principal and published author, addressed the issue of parent engagement as part of Catholic Education Week.

This rich presentation provided a myriad of great advice. Of particular note was his assertion about the importance of schools working with parents together on the key issues such as cyber safety and watching out for technology addiction.

As a parent myself, I was particularly interested in his advice about four important gifts we as parents can offer our children: time, boundaries, consistency and routines.

Undoubtedly, a hallmark of the approach to wellbeing at Stuartholme is the close bond with our parents. We do work really hard together, both in the real world and online, to “always be bigger, wiser and stronger”. In this way we optimise the chance for every single girl to be the very best that she can be.

Message from the Director of Studies

It was my privilege to announce the names of our Academic Excellence awardees for Semester I today. The ceremony was an eloquent example of how our students embrace our Sacred Heart goal of A Deep Respect for Intellectual Values, and have challenged themselves to be the best students they can be.

As you would be aware, Queensland education is going through one of its most major changes in 40 years. Our current Year 11s are the first cohort to experience the new QCE system. Teachers have been working very hard behind the scenes preparing new units of work and assessment items. I take this opportunity to thank them most sincerely for all their efforts in this regard – they have been thoughtful, dedicated and collegial in this process and the girls will reap the benefits of their teachers’ expertise.

The introduction of external assessment in General subjects is a key feature of the new QCE system. To give school communities a sense of what external assessment will be like, the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) has published sample papers on its website at: https://www.qcaa.qld.edu.au/senior/senior-subjects. They’re located in the Assessment tab on each syllabus page.

We will incorporate these sample resources in our teaching and learning program to help our students prepare for next year. In the meantime, students and parents are encouraged to view the sample papers.

Parents and students are also encouraged to read the information page published by the QCAA for further information. Click on this link to access the paper: QCAA Information for Parents and Students

Best wishes

Message from the Careers Counsellor

Hi everyone,

It’s been a big couple of weeks in the Careers Office!

Last Monday, we had the 2019 Stuartholme Careers Expo, followed closely by the 2020 Year 11 Subject Selection Information Evening. It was wonderful to see so many students and parents there for the events!

Last Tuesday saw SET planning interviews kick off with our current Year 10 students and families. Mrs Lacey, Mrs Johnson, Mrs Somerset and I have had a busy week of meetings with students and families, organized by our capable Mrs Heath. I think we’ve all found this an enjoyable and fruitful process and hope all others involved felt the same.

Last Thursday, QTAC and UAC applications opened and many Year 12 students have started the process of applying to study at university next year. I’ll be running support sessions in the library for the next few weeks, as well as sending around tips and resources, and meeting with students individually to help them plan their next steps.

Last Friday, Year 11 students heard from a panel of Stuartholme alumnae, who graduated between 2012 and 2016. These accomplished women were able to shed some light on life after school, moving out of home, the differences between school and uni, and all the other opportunities out there for our girls after graduating. We’re very grateful to our alumnae for sharing their time and experiences with us.

As always, please find below a summary of the events, opportunities and resources that students might find useful for career exploration and development. For the full Bulletin, please visit the Careers page of the my.Stuartholme hub.

Debating

With Stuartholme’s senior debating competition coming to a close for 2019, I would like to congratulate all our teams and coaches for their dedication and success. In particular to 9.2 (Alex O’Brien, Sasha de Aboitiz, Scarlett Bradley, Anna Coman), 10.1 (Juliet Wynn, Hannah Howard, Sophie Buller, Grace Deeran) and 11.1 (Neave Duff, Alice Cook, Elodie Walter) who finished in the top 16 of their year level across Brisbane. With each year level having at least 80 teams registered, we couldn’t be prouder of our debaters effort. It was wonderful to see how these students have grown, but also how supportive the debating community is with many members coming to support others in the finals.

Our Year 7 junior secondary debating competition is half way through! Our three teams are energetic and fearless when it comes to rebuttal, something their coaches are very impressed by. Congratulations to 7.3 (Susannah Streeton, Georgie Nasser, Grace Power, Rachael Henderson, Jemima Beehag) who are so far undefeated.

It is also with great excitement that I can announce our 2020 Senior A debating team. Congratulations to Molly McCann, Neave Duff, Sophia Buller and Chloe Butler who will be representing Stuartholme at the highest level of school debating. The team will begin training now, to prepare for a successful season.

Science Snippets

Researchers from the University of Queensland have used super-resolution microscopy to observe key molecules at work inside living brain cells. This has allowed further unravelling of the puzzle of memory formation and causes of dementia.

Professors Frédéric Meunier and Jürgen Götz found a protein, Tau, involved in Alzheimer’s disease affecting the organisation of the signalling protein Fyn, which plays a critical role in memory formation.

Professor Meunier said single molecule imaging in living brain cells allowed unprecedented access on the organisation of key proteins in small nanoclusters that were not detectable previously. He went on to investigate a different mutant of Tau found in families with a high risk of developing frontotemporal dementia. It was discovered that Fyn was over-clustered in the spines of dendrites.

What causes Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia continues to be a mystery. However, Fyn is linked to both the plaques of amyloid protein that form between brain cells, and tangles of Tau protein that form inside brain cells- two distinguishing features of Alzheimer’s disease.

Genes the cause of psychiatric disorders?

A project carried out by the University of Queensland and Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam analysed more than 400,000 individuals to determine the genes linked to five psychiatric disorders. UQ psychiatrist Professor Christel Middeldorp said several sets of genes marked all five disorders (ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder and schizophrenia) tested for.

Professor Middeldorp reported, “We investigated if specific sets of genes were involved in the development of multiple disorders, which genes are not only related to say, ADHD, but also to the other four psychiatric disorders.

“These are genes that play a role in the same biological pathway or are active in the same tissue type. Genes that are highly expressed in the brain were shown to affect the different disorders, and some genes were related to all the illnesses we studied. It shows that there is a common set of genes that increase your risk for all five disorders.”

Dr Anke Hammerschlag, the study’s lead author, said it was due to biological pathways shared by the genes in the brain. “We found that there are shared biological mechanisms acting across disorders that all point to functions in brain cells. The synapse plays a vital role as this is the connection point between brain cells where the cells communicate with each other. We also found that genes especially active in the brain are important, while genes active in other tissues do not play a role,” reported Dr Hammerschlag.

New pharmaceutical drugs could potentially target these pathways. The knowledge gained through this investigation will bring scientists closer to the development of “more effective personalised medicine.”
