Message from the Principal

Dear Parents, Friends and Caregivers,

We have just begun Term 3 2017 and there is lots to report. I do hope each of our families enjoyed time with their loved ones and a break from the routine of school – day girls and boarders alike!

During our Winter Break, we had a few significant events: our Red Earth Immersion Program, numerous Sacred Heart Exchange students from the northern hemisphere enjoying a Brisbane winter and Rowing Camps in preparation for our Regatta season.

Considerable maintenance work was completed during the students’ and teachers’ school holidays. Our community will have noticed additional carparks, particularly on our front driveway. Enormous maintenance was required to repair and to replace three quarters of The Nest’s roof, which was affected by termite damage, in our heritage building. We have also implemented a drastic proactive process to prevent further infestations. Unfortunately, this has meant we had to remove some lovely climbing plants from the exterior of the building. Unfortunate aesthetically, absolutely essential for preventative practice.

On our Red Earth Immersion Program, twenty-three students from Brigidine College and Stuartholme School, travelled to Far North Queensland where they gained valuable first-hand experience of indigenous culture and community.  The girls were privileged to meet elders and their families at the different communities and had the opportunity to share stories.  We laughed heartedly, built strong relationships and made connections with the people and the Land that will last forever.  It was a life-changing experience.

Our Sacred Heart tradition of international exchanges for students was well received. Fourteen international Sacred Heart students from United States, Canada, France and Spain have been welcomed into our students’ homes and hearts. I had a wonderful chat with the girls to ask what is similar to their education system and schools and what they find different. Our biggest difference is vegemite. Our endearing Australian quality was our friendly approachable ways and Stuartholme is a happy place. Our hosts are looking forward to the reciprocal arrangement when they visit their northern hemisphere Sacred Heart ‘sisters’ in our summer break.

During the holidays, our Rowers and their parents committed to arduous training camps in preparation for the Regatta season. Last Saturday, Stuartholme hosted the first Girls’ School Rowing Regatta for 2017 at Wyaralong. The generosity and energy of the Rowing parents was overwhelming as they had a huge range of gourmet options for spectators and participants – the best steak burger I’ve had in years! The new venue provided superb conditions on the water, yet some logistic challenges on land, which our Stuartholme community embraced with a smile and undaunted energy. As a result of the Stuartholme spirit, we had a very successful day and raised a fabulous amount of money for our Rowing Program. We had 16 crews/scullers finish in the top 3, with 7 crews/scullers finishing outside of the top 3, six (6) first places, five (5) second places and five (5) third places.

Another area of success last weekend was with our Equestrian Team. Stuartholme won Interschool State Champions Eventing/ Show Jumping, Reserve Champions Combined Training, Overall 3rd in Dressage and were named Winners of The Loretta Wigan Champion School Trophy 2017. Well done everyone!

Our Music Day last Friday was a great achievement. Thank you to Andrew Mear and his team of music tutors. A complex day of rehearsals was scheduled in preparation for the Queensland Catholic Music Festival. We usually have a Music Camp over a Friday and a weekend, however, this has clashed with our Winter Sporting programs. So Andrew and our Music teachers found a compromise which allowed quality rehearsal time to continue and also enabling students to maintain their commitment to their sports obligations as well. I was so impressed with their efforts, their attention to detail and the concentration of our musicians and their dedicated teachers/tutors.

At our Friday Assembly we also acknowledged NAIDOC Day where Sr Rita Carroll rscJ presented a Bible written in an indigenous language. Our indigenous students spoke in their own languages. We celebrated the fact that in the last twenty years many indigenous languages have been able to be acknowledged, saved and re-invigorated in our current context. I shared a story of how in 1993 I brought a team of indigenous boys to Brisbane from Far North Queensland communities, who could speak indigenous languages, and could dance and sing their traditional rituals. In 1993 these boys were greatly honoured by their Brisbane counterparts as they were seen as a novelty or as rare. Serendipitously, I met with James Fa’Aoso, one of those indigenous boys from 1993, on Friday afternoon. James is an organisational leader with Cape York Institute, providing opportunities for isolated indigenous students to access quality education – I am so proud of him and now honoured to work along-side him.

We have had a wonderful start to Semester 2, Term 3. Lots to celebrate. Lots to do. Exciting times at Stuartholme.

God bless and take care,

Kristen Sharpe
Principal

News from the Nest

Dear Parents/Guardians

Welcome to Week 2 of the term, nearly Week 3! The girls have returned in a very positive and happy frame of mind and have settled quickly back into our routines and way of life. I was impressed to hear that so many girls worked hard over the break helping muster, fence and do a myriad of demanding physical jobs. No wonder that boarders demonstrate high levels of resilience and gratitude! I think they were pleased to come back to school for a bit of a rest!

We welcome three new students this term: Olivia Smith and Gabrielle Edwards in Year 8, Sarah-Jane Wagner in Year 11 as well as visiting exchange students, Meredith Wilson from Greenwich, Connecticut hosted by Tessa Buzzo and Mia Baker from Stone Ridge, Washington DC hosted by Macey Fegan. We also welcome Mimi Dignan into Year 7 for a short stay!

We have had two fantastic House Meetings since being back this term. We had a talk on cultural awareness and respect by Sgt Sarmiento from Indooroopilly Police and also Leilani Mackie and Kristin Sonk reflecting on their volunteering experiences in Nepal. Our meetings are run by the House Captains each week who meet with me weekly as do the Mentors to plan activities for the girls. They are currently getting the House organised to take part in Boarders Got Talent early next term as well as a Boarders’ Assembly Presentation on “who we really are!” Work-shirts and boots will certainly be coming out for this!

On the first Monday back, we had a Boarder Parent Network Meeting. Kristen Sharpe updated the group on recent school news and then I gave a Term 3 boarding report. You can read the document here and am happy to answer any questions you might have. Our big news from the meeting is that we are having an inaugural BOARDER PARENT GET TOGETHER BBQ on SATURDAY 12 AUGUST FROM 5-7.30 PM at the Café area at school. All boarders will be attending and we would love to see as many of you there as possible.

Payment for the dinner and drinks (including beer and wine) will be $30 per family (unlimited number of family members can be included) and payment is via the school portal.

Choose Boarders’ Miscellaneous from Stuartholme School – Events when paying in your $30. Can you please do this by Monday August 7th.

Today we had Bridie Miller and Charlotte Gibson (Year 7) speak on assembly about our Strive to Be Kind Day which is a state-wide day in memory of Alison Baden Clay, a Brisbane mother who died under tragic circumstances but whose qualities of kindness have been heralded by everyone who knew her.   We thought that the whole concept of a day dedicated to random acts of kindness was wonderfully relevant to the Boarding House. The Year 7s and 8s will be giving out yellow hand-made flowers today to anyone in boarding that they see perform an act of kindness for someone else. Thanks to Mrs Melissa Robinson for her great initiative in this project.

Our best wishes are with our rowers now in this Regatta season as well as our debaters who are entering the finals stage of the year.

Boarding information:

  • A reminder that students are not allowed to use Uber taxis. No one under 18 is able to book or travel unaccompanied in an Uber taxi – this is legislated by Uber and the Australian Government.
  • Girls have been told that they cannot have soft drinks or fizzy drinks in their rooms or any food that does not fit into a small sealed Tupperware container – random cupboard checks will be carried out to make sure that girls are complying to this.

Science Snippets

Did you know that on this day 166 years ago, a total solar eclipse was first captured on a daguerreotype photograph (the first commercially successful photographic process used from 1839-1860) by Busch and Berkowski, at the Royal Observatory in Königsberg, Prussia (now Kalinigrad in Russia)? Or that seven years later fingerprints were used as a means of identification for the first time? Or that in 1866, the use of the metric system was authorised by act of Congress as legally acceptable weights and measures in the United States, though it was not made compulsory. {Funnily enough, over a century and a half later, the nation has still not converted to the metric system.}

Whilst today marks some important days in the history of science, much more is still to be created, discovered and explored! Make sure to check out the following upcoming events and important dates so you can get involved!!

  • The RoboCup Junior Australian Open Championships return to Brisbane on the 23 and 24 September 2017. Held at the UQ St Lucia campus, Robocup Junior is a project-orientated educational initiative that sponsors local, regional and international robotic events designed to introduce RoboCup to primary and secondary school students. Check out their website for more details! http://www.robocupjunior.org.au/home
  • The 64th Queensland Science Contest is a great opportunity for students from Prep to Year 12 to have their scientific work judged for awards and prizes. Registrations for student entries in the contest are open until 9 October. Judging is on Saturday 14 October. If you’d like to enter, or just want some more information, contact Ms Macdonald.

NATIONAL SCIENCE WEEK

National Science Week is also coming up soon! From 14-18 August (with the exception of 16 due to the exhibition holiday) the theme of “Future Earth” will be resonated throughout the school with various activities, experiments and events planned. These activities will be announced at Assembly the week before, so get excited!

Our first quiz back from holidays will also be available at lunchtime today! Open until 3pm on Monday 31, there is plenty of time to complete the five question quiz and potentially win a Freddo frog! Pop into the library to put in your entry!

Don’t forget that Science Help is held every Monday Week B after school in the library (JELC1). Ms Macdonald and Mr Marshall are there to help you with your science questions. Mr Marshall also holds Chemistry tutorials in S204 at Friday lunchtime (Year 12 is Week A, Year 11 is Week B).

Music Day and Mexican Dinner

On Friday, 21 July, music students in Choir, Band and String ensembles undertook a full day of rehearsals to prepare for the upcoming Queensland Catholic Schools’ and Colleges’ Music Festival – QCMF.

The students were supported by the ensemble conductors and music tutors to rehearse their numbers, breaking into small groups for focussed rehearsal and also undertook ‘team building’ exercises outside.

Special thanks to the music staff who supported and encouraged the girls on the day:

Andrew Mear – Director of Music – conductor for Concert Band and Joigny Voices

Zac Moynihan (percussion); Miranda Sue Yek (clarinet and saxophone) and Janet McKay (flute)

Marina Grinham and Evelyn Legried – String Conductors

Elspeth Sutherland and Barbara Tate – Voice tutors who assisted with the choirs

Melanie Stewart – Conductor of Year 7 Choir

Kathy Sander – Accompanist to the choirs

 

The Student Music Committee also worked hard to encourage the students, organise games and kept the ‘team spirit’ alive for the day!

At the end of a very busy day, 96 students and 9 staff piled onto a bus to head to Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant at Newmarket for a Mexican dinner in celebration of their hard work for the day.

A fabulous time was had by all!

Good luck to the ensembles performing in QCMF – we know you will do us proud!

QCMF – Performance dates and times

Performance date and times for QCMF are listed below.  More detailed information, including a map and other relevant information, will be emailed to the relevant families in the coming days.

Sony Camp – medical volunteers

An invitation to Registered Nurses and Doctors to Volunteer at the Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camp 2017!

 Do you know of any nurses or doctors who might want to volunteer?

Stuartholme School and St. Laurence’s College are once again running the fantastic Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camp. As you may know this camp cannot be successful without the support of our wonderful medical volunteers. This camp provides much needed respite to families with disabled children, and a wonderful educational experience for our Year 11 & 12 students.

This year the camp will be held from Saturday 16 September through to Monday 18 September. The children will stay Saturday and Sunday nights in the boarding house at Stuartholme School and will be predominantly cared for by their student companions- Year 11 & 12 students from either Stuartholme or St. Laurence’s. In saying that, we do need medical & nursing staff to support the students and provide some medical care to the children.

Nurses need to be registered but not necessarily currently practicing. Doctors are only required to be on-call at the nominated times. Nursing staff from the Health Centre at Stuartholme will be present at all times during the camp to help and support volunteers. The feedback from previous years has been that it is a very fun and rewarding experience for all.

If anyone you know is a nurse or doctor and might like to volunteer, could you please kindly get them to fill in the attached form and return to kbrain@stuartholme.com as soon as possible, or feel free to forward this email on to them or send me their details so that I can contact them.

If they have any questions or concerns or difficulty completing the attached form, please feel free to contact me anytime on 3510 6420 or via return email.

We need at least four nurses per shift to provide support to the students and campers, so please send this to anyone who you think might be able to spare an hour or two. Please tell them to indicate all of their availability on the attached form, once I have all of the forms returned, I will work out a roster and email it out to everyone.

Thank you,

Health Centre Manager

Teaching the Holocaust

Over the June holidays I attended a course at the Jewish Museum of Sydney called “Teaching the Holocaust” and would recommend this beautiful building to families when time allows on a Sydney visit – there are three floors of very powerful primary resources designed for both students and parents to immerse themselves in.

The two-day intensive covered topics such as the diversity of Jewish identity in our modern world and practical approaches to teaching the Holocaust within today’s subjects at secondary level.  Included in the program were several opportunities to listen to the thoughts of Jewish Australians living in Sydney today – including the newly ordained first female Jewish Rabbi in Sydney.

The photo shows me meeting three men who survived the Buchenwald Concentration Camp – they were interred when they were just 13 years old, for five years until World War II ended.  They came to Australia as part of a repatriation program in 1949 and are now very proud Australian great-grandfathers.

I felt very honoured and humbled to spend time with these survivors of the Holocaust and know that this course will positively affect my classroom teaching of these units.
