Message from the Principal

Dear Parents, Friends and Caregivers,

Unfortunately, on Monday 12 February, we needed to close the school because of no water available for toilets. Stuartholme School experienced a 7-hour blackout from 7.30pm Sunday night to 2.40am Monday morning. At this time there was no indication about a problem with our pumps. Once the boarders woke up at 6am to start getting ready we understood issues with the water were not rectified with the return of electricity which would normally happen. By 6.30am a call was made that without proper water facilities the school could not open. Concurrently, correspondence was drafted to all parents and staff advising them of the need to close the School. Communication was released from 6.45am, 15 minutes after the decision to close the School. Belbaker Bus Services were advised to bring all students to Stuartholme where they could be supervised until a parent could pick them up. The decision was made as quickly as possible to limit the number of staff and students from leaving for School. Using all the communication channels at our disposal, email, My Stuartholme and Facebook, parents were kept informed. While we could close the day school, our Boarding students still needed access to showers and toilets. The Boarders were moved to Marist College. Stuartholme has management plans in place to ensure our students, both day and boarding are well cared for in times of natural events which are beyond our control and may damage our facilities.  We appreciate that this was unexpected news early on a Monday morning and we thank the School community for your support and understanding.

In contrast to this event, on Friday 9 February, we celebrated our Opening Mass paired with our Academic Achievements Assembly. This year is the bicentennial of Rose Philippine Duchesne leaving France to travel to America, where she brought the Society and its charism to new lands. It is therefore fitting, that our theme for the year is “Crossing Frontiers”. This theme challenges our girls holistically, to push themselves academically and step out of their comfort zone, be more inclusive, accept new opportunities, participate in new activities and explore their spiritual dimension.

Due to the timing of our annual Celebration of Excellence, some results are not known in time so we took the opportunity to acknowledge the top students in Art, Music, Drama, Geography, Design Technology and History in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 for 2017. As our Deputy Principal, Deanne Johnston said in her address, these young ladies have succeeded for many reasons but perhaps the most important is their dedication and hard work. In this way, they are continuing to live the legacy of Philippine Duchesne who taught us many values, including the importance of strength and determination. We learn from Philippine that in order to succeed in life and be happy with ourselves, we must keep striving and putting our whole heart and soul into every task, including our academic pursuits. With hard work, we feel a sense of achievement and accomplishment, gain self-confidence and build determination to strive towards the highest levels. Sacred Heart girls are blessed with an extraordinary education. This year, let us enter our work and studies with an attitude of gratitude, the courage to overcome barriers and setbacks and an unwavering conviction that we can succeed. In this way, we will ensure Philippine Duschene’s legacy stays alive.

This year Ash Wednesday coincided with St Valentine’s Day. Initially I found this a juxtaposition. However, when you consider St Valentine’s Day is essentially about love and we are a community centred around Cor Unum, One Heart, it felt right. How do we inspire our highly relational community to “Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel”. As is required in our contemporary context, we need to discern for ourselves how to interpret Catholic traditions and make them relevant to us today. To “turn away from sin” means to challenge our own poor relational behaviour. We should reflect on when do we not treat others well: is it in the morning when we are grumpy and less tolerant; is it with our brothers, sisters, work colleagues; is it in our social media exchanges. To “be faithful to the Gospel” simply means be kind to one another. Consequently, I challenged our girls to reflect on when are they not their best, I asked them to use the 40 days of Lent to develop a new positive habit, to cross new frontiers. I asked them to see Lent as a time of self-reflection, self-regulation and to be more giving of themselves.

Thank you to all the parents who attended a Parent Information Evening. These evenings provided a broad range of information, specific to each year level and we are pleased at how well received they were. Except for the disruption to school last Monday, we are very happy with our start to the 2018 school year.

 

Kind wishes and God bless,

Kristen Sharpe
Principal

Message from the Deputy Principal

It is generally agreed that teacher quality is the single most important in-school factor influencing student achievement (OECD, 2005), outweighing the impact of any other school education program or policy in improving student performance (Jensen, Hunter, Sonnemann, and Cooper 2014). This is one of the reasons why, at Stuartholme, we are committed to the ongoing pedagogical development of our teachers. A quality holistic education is a priority for our girls.

So how do we know what quality teaching and learning look like in the 21st century? This is a topic our teachers explore in their weekly professional learning communities (PLCs). The research we discuss is clear – teaching in the 21st century cannot simply be about imparting knowledge.

Jack Ma, a Chinese business magnate, philanthropist, internet and technological entrepreneur, offers some advice for educators. He suggests that in the digital age it is pointless to relentlessly focus on knowledge acquisition.  He states, “We cannot teach our kids to be smarter than a machine. They can’t compete!”  Instead he asserts we should focus on sport, music and art as well as values, care for others, independent thinking and teamwork, all things, he suggests, that make us better than a machine.

The new senior system, due to commence in Queensland next year, will be underpinned by 21st century learning skills. The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA), has identified and defined a set of 21st century skills that students will need to be successful in the future.  Along with literacy and numeracy, these include critical thinking, creative thinking, communication, collaboration and teamwork, personal and social skills and ICT skills. On their website, the QCAA has published a series of videos of highly successful, aspirational Queenslanders who discuss these skills and their importance for young people. Queensland’s Chief Entrepreneur, Shark Tank’s Steve Baxter, warns that software power is replacing thinking power. Therefore, rather than teaching knowledge, we need to equip our students with IT skills.  Queensland Ballet’s Artistic Director, Li Cunxin, offers that it’s vitally important for leaders to be able to communicate effectively.  Medical researcher Lesley Chong expresses that, rather than knowledge, she values teamwork and collaboration as well as flexibility and curiosity.  More information on the skills that underpin the new senior General Syllabuses, and the QCAA’s videos, is available at https://www.qcaa.qld.edu.au/senior/new-snr-assessment-te/redev-snr-syll/21st-century-skills.

These skills can also be greatly enhanced through participation in co-curricular activities.  Over the weekend, I spent some time at Stuartholme’s Equestrian Camp.  As the girls chatted, showed me their horses and the stables and I watched them in the arena honing their skills under the guidance of their coaches, it was evident the sport was more than just enjoyable.  Their engagement was helping them to further develop a host of qualities including critical thinking, communication, teamwork, leadership, and social skills.

Quality learning in the 21st century is not just about what happens in the classroom. Teachers will be collaborating to engage students in classroom activities that enhance the skills needed to be successful in today’s world. However, these skills will be developed in greater depth and used with greater flexibility when students can practise them in a range of settings and co-curricular involvement is a great way to facilitate this.

We are nearly half way through Term 1 with our new school portal and app My Stuartholme.  The launch so far has been a great success particularly with students, 94% of students have logged on in January 2018.  38% of parents logged on in January 2018, please help the school to spread the word about the new portal.

This will be our key communication tool with parents, students and staff so we encourage you to check your notifications regularly to keep up to date.

Message from the Dean of Boarding

The last fortnight in boarding has been dominated by the weather, as are many of your lives. The girls have been just magnificent, all of them able to say a sprightly “Morning!” as they come down the stairs having gone through very warm nights. They truly are a resilient group of young women, well prepared for life’s ups and downs.

As many of you were aware, we had an eventful Sunday and Monday this week with power and water outages. It was fantastic to be able to seek some cool and relaxing relief at Marist College on Monday. Many thanks to Principal Mr Peter McLoughlin and Head of Boarding Mr James Metzling for making us feel so welcome. The girls were extremely excited to be there, although slightly disappointed that their only glimpse of the boys was through the windows of the boarding house! Well planned on our part!

A highlight of this week was celebrating a Valentine’s Themed Dinner on Shrove Tuesday. The Breakfast Club organised decorations, card writing, prizes and dress ups and I would like to commend Ellen Bowden, Piper Smith, Roanna Trott, Lily Chapman and Jess Campbell in particular for their great leadership on the night. Boarder of the Week went to Roanna Trott for her strong and gentle leadership, consistently demonstrated this term.

Ms Melissa, Miss Ellen and Miss Catherine have been very busy running Year Level Wellbeing activities for the boarders and so far this year we have had a Year 11 Integrity-themed afternoon tea, a Year 12 Accountability-themed Tim Tam meeting, a Year 8 Openness-themed Activity, a Year 10 Teamwork-themed afternoon and many Year 7 mini-gatherings with discussions focused on gratitude and even Lent. On Thursday night the Chinese students cooked hot pot in preparation for Chinese New Year – Year of the Dog!

A special shout out to the wonderful Day Parents who are making cakes for our youngest boarders and taking the boarders to offsite appointments. We are most grateful to you and cannot thank you enough for this generosity.

Our in-house tutoring program has commenced and is available free of charge to all boarders. We have two tutors currently, Ms Claire Lawler (English, SOR, RE and Humanities) and Ms Hannah Bindon (Chemistry, Biology and Business) and I am in the process of employing a Maths/Physics tutor. These sessions occur Monday to Thursday on Level 2 of Renard Building.

A big event coming up on Wednesday 21 February is a special Nudgee Boarders’ Welcome Dinner that our whole boarding house is attending (except the 7s who will be on camp!) We will be hearing guest speaker, Nicole Gibson talk about mental health, connection and innovation. Nicole has been a finalist for the Young Australian of the Year and she also took out the Pride of Australia Medal. http://www.nicolegibson.com.au/

Boarder Parents please note these important practicalities for the weeks ahead:

  • Boarders return on Tuesday 17 April not Monday 16 April which is a public holiday due to the Games. Boarders need to be in house by 5 pm but they can come in from 8.30 am. This is also Parent Teacher Interview Day
  • We apologise for the delay in getting new boarder parents their REACH logins. Ms Ellen will be contacting you each this week with your logins. She is your best point of contact for any troubles using REACH. emclean@stuartholme.com
  • Please ensure all weekend leave is in to us online via REACH by Thursday at 11 am. We need this time to process all leave and to get back to you if we have any questions or difficulties.
  • If your daughter has special dietary needs ie coeliac, vegetarian, vegan or lactose free, I need an email from you if this is a new thing. It is considerable effort for the kitchen to prepare special meals and I need parental authority in order to go ahead with this. As you know, teenage girls can go in and out of food fads, but this cannot happen without your knowledge and approval.
  • All boarders are expected to have returned from weekend leave by 4.30 pm on Sundays in order to attend Mass which starts at 5 pm. I would appreciate your support in ensuring they are back on time for Mass and have an appropriate smart casual outfit to wear.
  • I have reiterated to the girls that very short jumpsuits and dresses, shredded hems on short skirts, holes in jeans or skimpy tops are not acceptable at Mass or at Tuesday dinners. Girls must wear nice runners, sandals or dressy slides – no sports slides or thongs.
  • I hope you are learning to navigate MyStuartholme and the boarding pages. You will find details of upcoming Recreation activities as well as any news of the week here.

A friendly reminder that you are always welcome to attend Mass with us, as is any member of the Stuartholme community. You will hear the girls’ enthusiastic singing and be uplifted I assure you.

As we enter this Lenten season, can I thank you for having produced young women who are reflective, willing to reach out and support their fellow boarders and who value community as a pearl of great price.

It is a privilege to be working in the boarding family.

Warm regards,

Andree Rice
Dean of Boarding

Message from the Dean of Student Wellbeing

Cybersafety and Student Wellbeing

Much has been written in the media lately about supporting young people to manage the risks associated with the online world. I was fortunate enough to attend a session with Brett Lee recently, a well-known expert in this area. I want to share with parents his advice so that we can work together to protect and educate our girls.

Supporting young people to make good choices

Safely navigating the online world is all about supporting young people to make good choices. Problems on the internet are rarely about technology and more often about relationships. It is important that we help our girls to show the same levels of respect and responsibility online as we expect of them in the real world.

The mythology of privacy online – there are only strangers

One of the most common myths surrounds social media is that it is private. Freedom of speech does not enable people to say whatever they like online to whoever they want. Private individuals are subject to defamation law on social media. Privacy online; regardless of a person’s security settings is a myth. Case law has now been established to address this. The reality is that there are 3 billion people on the internet.

Parental responsibility

Parents have a key responsibility to play in terms of what their daughters are doing online and maintaining an open dialogue about this. Parents should aim to remain up to date with:

  • What their daughter is using online
  • When they are using it
  • Who is joining in; and
  • Verbalising with your daughter what to do if there is a problem.

Key principles for all online activity

It is important that we continue to work together to educate and protect our girls as they engage in online activity. Brett Lee recommends we teach our girls about the five key principles to guide all online activity:

  1. People I only know on the internet are strangers.
  2. The internet is not private (regardless of privacy settings).
  3. I protect my personal details online (i.e. do not give too much personal information)
  4. I have rules on the internet and computers (respect and responsibility are paramount).
  5. I talk to a trusted adult if I have a problem.

Message from the Dean of Mission

This week we recognise the beginning of our Lenten period with two key events – Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday. Shrove Tuesday was traditionally when people would use up the ingredients they would fast from during Lent; flour, egg and butter, and cook pancakes, hence it has also been referred to as Pancake Tuesday. It is usually a celebration before the more sombre time of Lent. This Tuesday we did indeed have a celebration when our Liturgy and Cor Unum Committees cooked pancakes, painted faces and raised awareness about respectful relationships. All money from these activities will go towards our annual Project Compassion appeal that was launched at our Ash Wednesday Mass.

In 2018, the theme for Project Compassion is ‘For a Just Future’. The call of this theme is twofold. Firstly, it encourages us to work towards a just future – a future where discrimination, oppression and poverty are not part of our world or reality. Secondly, in the Catholic Church’s Year of the Youth, it focuses on those who will be the future, young people. This year Project Compassion demonstrates how Caritas Australia empowers young people to become channels of our love and positive change for their entire communities. A Just Future is possible for all generations and communities, who are part of one human family.

During the Ash Wednesday Mass, we heard from Psyche Mae. Psyche knows firsthand the impact of Caritas and their Project Compassion fundraising. In 2008, when Psyche featured in Project Compassion, she was living in a squatter settlement, on the edge of a giant rubbish dump outside Manila, in the Philippines. Speaking at Mass, Psyche spoke about how the programs of Caritas provided educational and employment opportunities that have allowed her to become a social worker, with a dream of completing her Masters.

Fr Richard Rohr, OFM, in God For Us, says “Lent is intended to lead us into an always hidden future and an always greater opportunity, and it is in truth—a future created by God—but still unknown to us. We now enter Lent with a new and open horizon, ready to both expect and work for God’s ever new springtime.” At Ash Wednesday Mass, Kristen spoke about crossing frontiers – our theme for the year – and stepping out of our comfort zone to be with others. To fast from destructive behaviours like bullying, being unkind or prejudice, and strive to bring love, hope and kindness to the world. It was quiet fitting then that this day landed on Valentine’s Day this year, as we challenged the girls to bring more love to the world during this Lenten period.

Co-curricula update

Term 1 sees our girls participating in a range of Co-curricula activities including tennis, water polo, equestrian, drama club, debating, music and art club. On behalf of the Stuartholme community, I’d like to thank all the coordinators, coaches, parent volunteers and supporters who give up their time to ensure our students have these opportunities to engage, grow and develop.

This Friday will be the school’s Interhouse Swimming Carnival.  We look forward to a fun day of competition and sportsmanlike rivalry. May the best House win!

Music camp is being held at Alexandra Headland this coming weekend under the guidance of Mr Andrew Mear and his talented music teachers. We hope the camp is enjoyable and rewarding for all involved.

Queensland Debating Union debating kicks off in two weeks’ time with debates for Years 9 and 11. We wish all Stuartholme teams good luck as they continue with their preparation for first round debates.

Assessment Schedules

All students and parents now have access to Assessment Schedules for each year level on My Stuartholme. Assessment Schedules are an important planning tool and we encourage all families to print out a copy of the relevant Schedule and keep it handy. A new Schedule will be produced each term.

For Year 11 and 12 students, a separate Exam Block schedule will be issued at least two weeks prior to the commencement of Exam Block. The subjects listed in the Exam Block section on the Assessment Schedule are for reference and planning only.

Some parents may have noticed a tile in My Stuartholme called ‘Due Dates’. In the future, this will be an easy way of checking the due dates of assessment in only the subjects your daughter studies. At present, this function is being tested and is not ready for use by the school community. When it is rolled out, it will be another great feature of My Stuartholme, but in the meantime we encourage the use of the Assessment Schedules as they contain all the assessment information you will need.

To access Assessment Schedules, go to the Academic Services tile, then click through to Assessment Information. All Schedules are available in PDF format for download and printing.

Wonderful achievement by the Equestrian Team of 2017

At the annual Equestrian Queensland Awards evening on Saturday 3 February Stuartholme was announced and accoladed as the Queensland’s School of the Year for 2017.

This is an enormous credit to the riders, parents and coaches and acknowledges every ounce of input in this demanding and yearlong sport.

Shannon Owens the 2017 Captain received the award on behalf of the team and gave a gracious thankyou speech to an audience of over 300 guests and Queensland dignatories.

We had a number of individual finalists in other categories and congratulate one of our parents on his award. Mr Nicholas Ballard, father of Emily and the 2018 Captain received the ‘Administrator of the Year’ award in recognition of his contribution to Equestrian sport through his years of work on various committee including Interschool. Congratulations Nick.

A wonderful evening was had by everyone and the various photos show our parents and girls having great celebratory fun. It was also a wonderful start for the new Equestrian Coordinator Mrs Sarah Drane. Sarah, after being the Stuartholme Equestrian Captain in 1991, has had a long and illustrious career in the Equestrian world and the team could not have a better role model and mentor to take them to the next level.

Congratulations to the team of 2017 and wishing the Team of 2018 every incentive to work hard and achieve in every aspect of the sport.

Signing off after 27 years,
