Message from the Principal

Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends,

Our year of Compassion has begun!

In our Opening Mass we launched our theme for 2019: Compassion, Connection and Change. Each year we focus on one of the five Sacred Heart Education Goals:

  • A personal and active faith in God
  • Deep respect for intellectual values
  • Building community as a Christian value
  • Social awareness that impels to action, and
  • Personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom.

This year’s focus Goal is ‘Social awareness that impels to action’. We consider a theme each year to connect our Goals with a contemporary context and expression. In our Opening Mass, our prayers and readings emphasised the quality of compassion.  We are called to treat each person with respect and dignity. This is a simple rule, yet it requires a lifetime of effort to grow an interpersonal intelligence that honours the other and seeks to understand the other’s perspective. We never get it perfect, yet we aspire to make compassion innate and essential in our personal integrity. I am excited about the ideas emerging from students, staff and parents about how our Stuartholme community can strengthen our individual and collective compassion.

A vibrant and visible expression of compassion was vivaciously expressed on St. Valentine’s Day. Our Cor Unum leaders facilitated a gold coin donation for a face-painted heart. Our student community raised over $370 to go to Drought Angels who are supporting the flood affected areas of North Queensland. Helen Spain, our Chair of the Board, and I attended an Association of Heads of Independent Schools of Australia (AHISA) workshop last Friday. After the meeting the Heads and Chairs of Boarding Schools across Queensland were invited to a meeting with Michelle Landry, a federal politician for Capricornia and Shaun Dillon a Barcaldine Councillor. We discussed the financial impact on our Boarding parents to cover Boarding School fees. Michelle was taking our concerns to a meeting with Dan Tehan the Federal Minister for Education to a meeting on Saturday. Today we have been asked by the Queensland Catholic Education Committee to provide some data which may assist in offering support and relief for drought/flood affected families. Once again, I am emboldened by our compassion for our Queensland neighbours.

I have undertaken an intensive professional learning program: Leading with Integrity for Excellence. This program is facilitated by Dr Stephen Brown, one of Australia’s greatest minds in educational leadership. The first two modules are on Governance and Ethics. And while the words ‘governance’ and ‘compliance’ do not always excite me, the first module did challenge my perspective. We were encouraged to return to our Catholic School’s moral purpose of compassion and service, wisdom and grace, and inclusive love and experience of relationships. Consequently, my perspective of governance grew to one of empowerment and strength rather than dry compliance. Compassion and relationships are foundational to the Stuartholme way. As I learn and grow in my capability in educational leadership, I feel blessed to be in a community which so strongly expresses compassion and connection as we ready our girls for our future.

May I remind parents about our Parents of Stuartholme (PoS) Meeting on Tuesday 26 February at 6pm in the Theatre foyer as well as our Open Day on Saturday 9 March.

Take care and God Bless,

Kristen Sharpe
Principal

Message from the Deputy Principal

Last week, as they do on an annual basis, The Courier Mail published a list they titled the State’s Top 50 schools. Headlines like this immediately grab attention but, unfortunately, they can also cause anxiety in parents.

Last weekend’s double-page insert listed every school in alphabetical order, ranking them from 1st to 366th. Ranking them in this manner fails to recognise that every school has a specific culture, ethos and mission and that Queensland’s schools are diverse and vibrant communities with unique offerings.

Last year Stuartholme saw an improvement on our results and I published these in our last newsletter. We are very proud of our 2018 cohort, and we commend them for their achievements. However, it is timely to remind parents that comparative data can be misconstrued and, without a full understanding of Queensland’s system, it is easy to read tables and lists without recognising the entirety of what the data is showing and what it is failing to show.  Some points for consideration:

  • The Top 50 schools’ list includes schools with huge variation in OP eligibility. Some schools had cohorts where less than 10% of the Year 12s pursued an OP.
  • Schools with a very small cohort may have a number of small subjects, meaning calculations could be based on state data rather than school data.
  • The data does not reveal a school’s enrolment policies, including whether they have a policy of selective entry based on academic results.
  • There is no measurement of growth so outcomes alone do not reflect how much students have developed throughout their time at the school.
  • The data does not reveal how many students attained each OP within the 1-5 range.
  • There is no insight into the school’s policies, processes or priorities when students select courses of study.

In considering what makes a ‘top school’, there are so many factors that will be more important in the long term including:

  • whether the school’s ethos has students at the centre and aims to develop them holistically.
  • whether the community is caring, supportive and inclusive.
  • student engagement in the learning process.
  • the vibrancy of learning environments.
  • the range and diversity of programs and opportunities across the school including those based on leadership, enrichment, sport, The Arts and social justice.
  • the wide range of post-schooling outcomes and opportunities.

Important considerations also include how happy the students are, whether they are thriving, how the school responds when hurdles arise and how they support students to be the best versions of themselves.

I am very proud to be part of the culture at Stuartholme. We challenge, support and nurture the girls in all areas of development – spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional and physical. We encourage each girl to contribute to the life of the School, to help create our rich community. Students, staff and parents work together to foster respectful relationships that will enable the girls to be resilient lifelong learners, supportive peers and engaged global citizens.

Stuartholme School will always value academics and staff will continue to work hard to attain the best academic outcomes for our girls. But holistic development, relationships and wellbeing are at the foundation of all we do and that is what makes Stuartholme a ‘top school’.

Message from the Dean of Mission

Our Heart & Action program and the new Social Justice Coordinator

St. Madeleine Sophie hoped that education within her schools would be profound enough to inspire people to rebuild, renew and transform society wherever they lived. Our fourth goal of Sacred Heart education and our focus goal for the year, ‘A social awareness that impels to action’ calls us to educate to a critical consciousness through providing direct opportunities for students and staff to build their understanding of justice issues and engage in service and advocacy activities. At Stuartholme, these activities are part of our Heart & Action program. Some of the activities that have been included in the program include:

  • Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) group
  • Volunteering at Yeronga Homework Club
  • Volunteering at Sony Holiday Camp for children with special needs
  • Homeless Connect
  • School-based initiatives such as work with our Sacred Heart school in India, St. Theresa’s

To continue to deepen our community’s engagement with this program and our fourth goal, we are excited to announce a new role in the Mission area, the Social Justice Coordinator. This role will plan and support social justice, advocacy and outreach programs, to enrich students’ spiritual growth and understanding of their mission of service which supports the Sacred Heart charism and ethos. It’s our pleasure to announce Ms Claire Lawler as the new Social Justice Coordinator.

Claire has been extensively involved in several organisations that work to facilitate change in the community including Big Night Out, DanDaLion and Friends, Edmund Rice Camps and The AHA Group. We are thrilled to have Claire onboard to coordinate our program at Stuartholme and look forward to the opportunities that await our community as a result.

A word from our new Social Justice Coordinator – Ms Claire Lawler

The students of Stuartholme are the change makers we need. Through their heart, mind and will they have the capacity to be a transforming influence in society. In order for this to occur we have a responsibility to facilitate immersive experiences which encourage change, whether that is paradigm shift in belief or a reinforcement of values. These moments foster connection, from which compassion emerges. A catalyst for our young women to walk alongside others, share their experiences and in turn be impelled to action.

I am actively committed in encouraging your young person to engage positively with their community. I believe that through community engagement young people gain wisdom, learn to apply existing knowledge and grow in appreciation of their own inherent value.

Message from the Dean of Boarding

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The weeks seem to move at an extraordinary pace, which is most probably true with all the wonderful activities that the girls are involved in at any one time.

With the rhythm of school being very much in place we have girls trying out for a variety of sports, including tennis, swimming and touch football. At the end of the day there is always someone going somewhere, so the life of a Boarder is one of adventure and business. This is then accompanied by our wonderful Recreation Program which has seen the girls having a variety of opportunities to attend evening outings to places like Eat Street Markets, which I, my husband and daughter also had the pleasure to attend, a day trip to Mooloolaba or a formal dinner hosted by Nudgee College. These events are also accompanied by us hosting pool afternoons with both Boarders from Marist and Nudgee. The girls can surely not complain about not having a full social calendar.

Our evening last Tuesday was hosted by Nudgee, bringing together some 350 boarders for a formal meal and some ‘Getting to Know You’ activities. It was wonderful to see the girls engaged in conversation around the tables. Some more shy than others, but overall had good reports back to the supervisors of the interactions at the tables. Our guest speaker spoke about Cybersafety and how each one of our young people need to protect themselves in their daily interactions. The conversation is certainly food for thought. Our sincere thanks are offered to Nudgee College and to the Dean of Boarding, Mr Christian Oneto for hosting us this evening.

Our world in the afternoons on a Monday to Thursday ensures that sustained effort is given to a study regime that will assist your daughters to engage fully in their academic pursuits. The accompaniment of the girls in this is ably supported by the Boarding Supervisors as well as some Tutors to assist with specific skill development and understanding. Stuartholme School Boarders will have access to a new program called Study Samurai in the next few weeks, where we will be able to support the development of specific skills that will assist the girls in not only setting up the basics of good study habits and routines,  but will also engage them on how to manage their time, to work with their mindset and also wellbeing. I look forward to introducing this program to the girls very soon and will ensure that they have the right support to gain the most benefit for this.

I have also been talking to our School Registrar Natasha Pay and she has me very much booked to attend a number of Regional Shows this year. I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can at these shows so that I can start to get to know you and you can get to know me better. We are as always working together in partnership for the benefit of your daughter.

Blessing with you and your family,

Karen Davies

Message from the Dean of Student Wellbeing

A Strong Focus on Student Protection

One of the key priorities at Stuartholme is creating and maintaining safe environments for students. Student protection is the formal term that we give to this priority and we achieve it by working together with a wide range of members across the community.

Stuartholme staff keep up to date on student protection through annual compliance training. Over the first few weeks of 2019, I have enjoyed delivering professional learning to our current staff as well as all new staff members including our tutors and coaches.

We also arm the girls with strategies for ensuring that they are safe in a wide range of situations through our Wise Wellness Program. Over the course of the term, Teacher Mentors will be taking a closer look at student protection with their teacher mentor groups which is included on page 17 of the Student Handbook.

The Stuartholme Way – Stand up to Bullying!

Stuartholme has a very strong and positive school culture promoting positive relationships and a clear policy to sustain this.

To make this policy accessible to students, we proudly display The Stuartholme Way – Stand up to Bullying! statement in every Teacher Mentor Group room.  This statement articulates what bullying is and provides advice about the role every girl can play in continuing to create a safe and happy school environment.

The Student Representative Council remain a key forum for consultation on action to be taken in this space. Based on their advice, The Stuartholme Way – Stand Up to Bullying electronic mail box was established and is located at standuptobullyingatstuartholme.com to deal discreetly with any reports. Anonymous reports cannot be accepted. A real mailbox is also located in Student Reception.

Lions Youth of the Year Quest

Last night Jacqueline Buttula and Cate Ostwald represented Stuartholme at the Brisbane-Bardon Lions Club, Lions Youth of the Year Quest. Both girls did Stuartholme proud. Cate Otswald was named as public speaker of the evening.  The judges spoke about the high calibre of our students, their integrity and maturity.Well done girls!

Debating

A strong solid foundation. A house needs it. A relationship needs it. A Stuartholme debater needs it. After a highly successful 2018, the Stuartholme debating community is focused and eager to deliver irrefutable arguments. However, we realise that our success is based on how well we have mastered the basics, the fundamentals of skill. With that in mind, 2019 will be our foundation year for all Stuartholme debaters, old and new. Our coaches will be diligent in structure and content, and encouraging our debaters that our words should hold quality, not quantity. In order to demonstrate this thorough understanding, our debaters have been encouraged to embrace their style of presentation. The array of talents and unique manner of Stuartholme debaters needs to be celebrated so that our young women are confident in who they are and in turn can focus on the foundations.

We invite all members of the Stuartholme community to attend our debates including our upcoming rounds:

Wednesday, 27th February

9.1 Stuartholme vs Brigidine College – 6pm at Ambrose Treacy College

9.2 Stuartholme vs Mt St. Michael’s College – 7pm at Ambrose Treacy College

11.1 Stuartholme vs  Mt St. Michael’s College – 6:45pm at Brisbane Grammar School

Wednesday, 6th March

10.1 Stuartholme vs St Aidan’s Anglican Girls School – 6:45pm at Ambrose Treacy College

10.2 Stuartholme vs Brisbane Christian College – 8pm at Ambrose Treacy College

10.3 Stuartholme vs Ferny Grove State High School – 8pm at Ambrose Treacy College

12.1 Stuartholme vs Iona – 8pm at Brisbane Grammar School

With over 600 teams registered in the Queensland Debating Union Secondary Schools competition it is bound to be an exciting challenge for Stuartholme debating. Through debating our young women will develop their confidence, refine their thinking, and polish their speaking. As a community we will celebrate their successes as they come our way.

Equestrian

The Stuartholme Equestrian team kicked off the year with a pre-season training camp at the Queensland State Equestrian Centre just over two weeks ago. This was a weekend full of fun, tiring and educational lessons that were aimed at helping the girls and their horses improve in their respective areas. This weekend seemed to prove fruitful as just this past weekend three girls from the team, Georgia Rink, Ellie Turnbull and Piper Searle, all drove to Pittsworth for the Fairholme Collage Extravaganza. This event was the first one to kick off the Interschool season and the girls performed exceptionally.

Piper Searle:

  • 3rd overall for Novice dressage on Hunter Mischief
  • Champion for Medium dressage on Miss Florentine
  • 5th overall in the 110cm show jumping on Hunter Mischief
  • Reserve champion for 120cm show jumping on Miss Florentine

Georgia Rink

  • Champion for Novice dressage on Remi Florente
  • 17th overall for Prelim Dressage on Montezuma (first competition for this young horse)
  • 3rd overall in the secondary 70cm on Montezuma
  • 8th overall in the secondary 90cm on Remi Florente

Ellie Turnbull

  • 6th overall for Novice dressage on Rangeview Amigo
  • Reserve champion in the 100cm show jumping on Rangeview Amigo

We have our very own Stuartholme equestrian competition on 9th and 10th March at Fig Tree Pocket Equestrian Club.  We will be hosting an interschool dressage and show jumping competition.  Please come and support our team over this weekend.  We would love to see you there.

Cultures of thinking

As many parents would know, this is the final year of Queensland’s current QCE and the final year of tertiary entrance based on OP results. Across the state, Year 11 is the first cohort to commence the new Queensland Certificate of Education and the first group of students to be eligible for Queensland’s new Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR).

Last year, Stuartholme’s Leaders of Learning and teaching staff worked incredibly hard to prepare for implementation of the new system and we are very proud to say we have a great amount of expertise leading the changes across the school. The girls have settled into the new courses well and the transition is going seamlessly. Our Year 12s are also being well supported by our Director of Studies, Shannon Lacey, to ensure they receive the attention and support they both need and deserve in their final year.

As we go into the new system, rather than focusing on school rankings, parents should be asking schools what they’re doing to prepare students for the demands of the new system. The important question is how will the school prepare students with the knowledge, understanding and skills needed in order to be equipped for the demands of higher education, work and life, and to participate effectively in the community and the economy (QCAA, 2017).

Stuartholme School understands that the most significant in-school factor influencing student achievement is teacher quality (Hattie) and hence we are committed to research-based evidence and working with experts who can develop our understandings and skills to ensure the best outcomes for our girls. Last week, we welcomed Dr Ron Ritchhart, a Principal Investigator and Senior Research Associate at Harvard Graduate School of Education, to run professional development with our teachers. His research spans over twenty years and his work is now used in schools on every continent in the world. He argues that learning is a product of thinking and if we want our students to learn well and develop understanding, we must create cultures of thinking that actively engage students in thinking on an ongoing basis (ronritchhart.com). His workshops focused on the practical and concrete ways our teachers can create a culture of thinking in their classrooms, foster the kinds of thinking opportunities that lead to deep understanding of content, and how to look for evidence of student thinking and understanding.

Many of the teachers will now be implementing the thinking routines in their classrooms and parents can see much evidence of students’ metacognition in their daughters’ OneNotes. Dr Ritchhart will be returning to Stuartholme in Terms 2 and 3 to support our teachers to create classrooms where thinking is valued, visible and actively promoted. I will include a more detailed explanation of Dr Ritchhart’s work and visit in the next edition of Cor Unum.

UQ Science Ambassadors 2019

It is with great pleasure that I announce our 2019 UQ Science Ambassadors. The field of Year 11 applicants was of a very high standard and I would like to thank all the girls for their well-written applications. However, I can only have a maximum of four ambassadors (UQ rules). I would like to congratulate the following four students on being selected to be our 2019 UQ Science Ambassadors:

  • Maia Craig
  • Nieve Dickman
  • Melanie Ashley
  • Rebecca Brown

These young scientists are asked to support science at our school by advertising events and activities, holding National Science Week activities, and encouraging senior science students to share their experiences with students in all years. I am looking forward to working with them this year.

Kind regards,

Mr Carroll’s Summer Holiday Adventures

Over the holiday, our school snake, Mr Carroll spent time with two of our students. Here is their recount of his stay.

In the first half of the summer holidays I had the pleasure of looking after the school’s spotted python Mr Carroll.  Snakes have a stereotyped reputation of being a ‘scary reptile’, however Mr Carroll proves this to be untrue.  He was an absolute delight and appreciated his time exploring.  It was extremely sad when we had to say goodbye. It was a fantastic experience as I haven’t had much to do with snakes, thus I learnt a lot.  Remy Conescu (Year 12)

Mr Carroll is the school’s pet snake. He usually lives in the Science labs but on the Christmas holidays I was fortunate enough to take him home.

Mr Carroll is a lovely, sweet and calm snake. He enjoys being held and likes the company. He especially loves exploring and climbing everywhere. Sometimes Mr Carroll and I would lie on the bed and watch Netflix, our favorite show is Brooklyn 99. He tends to like to get close to the laptop because it is warm, and his favorite food would have to be rats! I really hope I get the opportunity to look after the fella again as I miss him dearly.
