Message from the Acting Principal

Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends,

The events in the world during the past fortnight have disturbed everyone’s sense of peace and equilibrium. It can be hard to know how to respond. Who better to turn to than Pope Francis who, in this week’s Tablet, highlights our obligations as Christians in times like these to denounce violations of human dignity and human rights and to expose attempts to justify every form of hatred in the name of religion… ‘peace alone is holy’. Two weeks after the Westminster attack, the Pope met with four British Imams inside the Vatican where he urged for dialogue where followers of different faiths respectfully listen to one another.

The Pope’s message of peace, dialogue, understanding, respect and unity is one that is part of the everyday fabric of life for us at Stuartholme. It is one that can guide us through challenging times.

I saw this message in action this week as our girls spent time in conversation on a very chilly Monday morning with the patrons at the Orange Sky Laundry vans. I saw it as Ms Sarah Daff worked with our ATSI students and Indigenous Professors from QUT and UQ on a Cultural Identity Project. I saw it at the incredibly joyous Interhouse Athletics Carnival last week, where so many girls of varying abilities gave events their best shot and supported each other in a sea of cheering. I see it in the Boarding House every evening as girls help each other get through the last round of assessment. I see it in the daily support our dedicated teachers and staff give our students. I know that Ms Kristen Sharpe, Miss Ellen McLean (Assistant Head of Boarding) and Miss Natasha Skelly (Registrar) will be living out this message at the Isolated Children and Parents’ Association State Conference in St George this week as they dialogue with rural women about the educational needs of rural and remote children and their families! We are surrounded by mini-scenes of peace, dialogue, understanding and unity – if we only took the time to notice them! A renowned champion of reconciliation, Archbishop Desmond Tutu says,

“We are made for goodness. We are made for love. We are made for friendliness. We are made for togetherness. We are made for all of the beautiful things that you and I know. We are made to tell the world that there are no outsiders. All are welcome… We all belong to this family, this human family, God’s family.” 

Good luck to all our girls with the current assessment period! May a spirit of peace be accessible to each of you even in the midst of this intensive work schedule. Take good care of yourselves.

God bless and take care,

Andree Rice

News from the Nest

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As you would be well aware, this is a heads down,  intensive study time in the House. I am very happy with how hard the girls are working and many staff have commented on the girls’ seriousness and commitment to their study. The kitchen is producing nourishing, warm meals like beef casserole and roasted vegetables and the Years 11 and 12 students were delivered care packs last night!

I would like to acknowledge the tremendous support for the boarders provided by Kylee Brain and her team as well as Ms Baker and Mrs Johnston, our skilled and energetic counselling team. The work of these ladies is imperative in seeing that the boarders get any extra support that they need to be healthy, positive and focused at a challenging time in the term.

A reminder about end of term dates and leave: End of term leave needs to be in by tomorrow, Saturday 10 June. School ends on Thursday 22 June at 3 pm and Friday is Boarders’ Travel Day with the House being closed at lunchtime. The Year 12 Formal is that evening as Year 12 parents will know all too well!

 Miss Claire Lawler has done a wonderful job in revamping our Recreation Program and this week a yoga session is available on Saturday and a special surprise in store for Sunday afternoon. Ms Daff has organised a series of spiritual reflective exercises in the House for Sunday afternoon as well as transport to St Ignatius Parish at 5 pm for any girls wishing to attend Mass there. Fr Pan is not available this Sunday at Stuartholme.

Please enjoy Miss Claire’s piece on the 2017 Recreation Program which will be printed in the next edition of Cor Unum:

The recreation program for Stuartholme boarders strives to be innovative, authentic, engaging and plain old -fashioned “fun”. These values drive the creation of our program and assist us in our overall goal, to develop confident and compassionate young women.

Being a boarder is challenging at times. You are away from your family, your home, your community, your ‘normal’. To help create a happy and safe environment in boarding, the recreation program has introduced a series of activities that are designed to be ‘a little slice of home’. This year we have introduced a pet therapy afternoon, where members of our school community bring in their furry, fluffy, feathered, and sometimes scaly friends, for the girls to spend a few hours with. The laughter and joy that accompanies this activity rejuvenates our boarders and allows our community to engage in a different and positive way with the girls.  Additionally, this term saw the introduction of our Day Girl Immersion. This day includes free time for the boarders to show their friends from school around the boarding house, facilitated inside and outside activities and downtime for the girls to simply hang out. The day students enjoy being inducted into the boarding world and our girls appreciate having that ‘homely’ experience.

Another focus of the revamped recreation program is our encouragement of boarders to find joy, stillness and creativity, even in the smallest moments. The introduction of DITry (Do It Try) events, where boarders attempt to recreate craft, cooking, and home science experiments, has resulted in personalised jewellery, decorations for rooms and over 25 kilograms of slime. The Boarders’ Library, curated by one of our Year 9 students, provides escapism and sustainability of resources, with many of the books being donated by the school library or by boarders. Although these activities may be smaller scale, they facilitate opportunities for boarders to enjoy technology-free, childhood moments. To further nurture this concept, next term boarders will be given gardens to cultivate, Paddock to Plate meals to plan for, and weekly art and craft sessions.

 In order for a Stuartholme boarder to understand the wider world, they need to be an active member of it. This year our Year 10 – 12 boarders have been invited to volunteer monthly at Big Night Out (BNO), a disability disco that has been operating in Brisbane for over 11 years. I am humbled by the respectful and fun attitude our boarders have bought to BNO so far, and am impressed by the growing number of boarders signing up. Further to this, instead of standard shopping outings we have introduced op shopping. This activity aims to educate boarders about sustainable practices, budgeting, and environmental and social awareness. These additions to the rec program are a big step, but a necessary one. By introducing social justice activities and awareness, we hope to broaden our boarders’ understanding of the world, but more so, what they can do to make a positive impact.

Good luck to your girls for this assessment period! They have been well supported in the House and I hope that you feel confident about their progress this term. Once again, please contact me with any concerns or feedback.

Wishing you a happy, warm weekend!

Hat Cleaning Service

A large number of hats are quite dirty or marked at the moment. We have once again accessed the services of a milliner who will re-block and clean school hats.

Can you please check your daughter’s hat and if it needs cleaning, please place it in a plastic shopping bag with her name and class on the outside of the bag. Hats need to be taken to the Student Wellbeing office on either Tuesday 20 or Wednesday 21 June 2017.

Cost is $22.00 and is to be placed into an envelope accompanying the hat. If your hat needs a new trim as well the cost is $5, making the total $27.00. Hats that require further mending will be charged slightly more and the money will be collected once the hats are returned to school. Hats will be ready for collection at the beginning of Term 3.

Honour pockets and blazer embroidery

As we approach the end of Term 2, some of the Co-curricula activities are drawing, or have drawn to a close. This is now the time girls can apply to receive lines on their blazer in recognition of their achievements.

The criterion used to award honour pockets is available on the Student and Parent Portals under ‘Student Information’ and within ‘School Procedures’.  Students need to refer to this before completing their application form. Please note, the Pocket Criteria for 2017 has changed significantly. Application forms have been emailed to students along with a copy of the Stuartholme Pocket Criteria 2017 (Jan).

Application forms are to be completed, including the signature of the teacher in charge, and handed into Mrs Johnson’s office by 9am on Monday 19 June. 

Students are to ensure that their blazer is clean, named and handed into Mrs Johnson’s office by 9am on Tuesday 20 June so the embroidery can be completed promptly and returned to the girls early in early Term 3.

Students will be able to collect their blazers from Mrs Johnson’s office when advised.

Year 11 Geography

This Term has been an exciting one for Year 11 Geography, with numerous field trips and practical data collections taking place.

On Wednesday 3 May we were lucky enough to go on a field trip to Barnett Rd, Bardon and Glenrosa St Red Hill along Ithaca Creek to collect primary water quality data for our assignment. The data collection consisted of physical, chemical and biological testing to help us understand ecological issues.

To further aid in developing our data collection skills, we also attended the Year 11 Geography and Biology Camp to North Stradbroke Island. There, we participated in numerous activities including measuring and assessing biotic and abiotic factors in the environment.

Both trips were a lot of fun and benefited us immensely.

Science Snippets

Did you know that on 18 June 2013, it was announced that a team of researchers at Harvard and the University of Illinois were able to manufacture a lithium-ion battery smaller than a grain of sand and less than the width of a human hair!

Here are some important upcoming events you may be interested in:

  • Experience Science 2017, held on Friday 7 July. Experience Science is a free event which provides students in Years 10 – 12 the opportunity to discover what studying science is like at UQ. http://www.science.uq.edu.au/expsci
  • National Science Week from Saturday 12 to Sunday 20 August. The science ambassadors will be running activities in the science department, so make sure you look out for updates!

Congratulations to the winners of last week’s Science Quiz!

  • Melly Penning – 11W
  • Gretta Berge – 11W
  • Sophia Bauman – 11W
  • Molly Cowan – 9S
  • Elke Frecklington – 9S
  • Ella Mulligan – 9P
  • Elke Lalor – 7W
  • Hannah Cioccarelli – 7M
  • Yasmin Squires – 7P

On 22 and 23 May, the Year 11 Biology and Geography students went to the UQ Moreton Bay Research Station on North Stradbroke Island to complete their field work. I was one of the students who went on this trip and I had a great time. It wasn’t only extremely educational, but it was also very fun! We learnt a lot about the different habitats which exist on the island and different organisms which occupy them. One thing I found very interesting was the mangroves and how many different types there are. I would definitely recommend Biology as a senior subject to any junior school girls who are considering it!

  • 14 years – 1st
  • 15 years – 1st

Cross Country Awards

  • Stuartholme Cross Country Runner of the Year – Lily Hunter
  • Spirit Awards – Ella Cole, Imogen White, Rachael Brown, Sophia Henderson
  • Coaches Encouragement Awards – Caitlin Scott, Sarah Long, Elizabeth Curtis, Sophia Stebbins, Alice Barry, Grace White
  • Captain’s Call – Alice Barry
  • Training Attendance Awards – Lily Hunter, Holly Robertson
  • 5 year Cross Country Merit Award – Claudia Neill

Representative Honours: Stuartholme sent a strong team of runners to the Brisbane Independent District (BID) Cross Country Trials at Parklands Christian College in early May with the following girls qualifying for the Met West Cross Country Trials – Lily Chapman (16 years), Rachael Brown (13 years), Lily Hunter (14 years), Sarah Long (17 years) and Ella Howie-Roy (15 years).

At the recent Met West Cross Country Trials, Lily Chapman and Lily Hunter both qualified for the Queensland Secondary Schools Cross Country Championships to be held at Bald Hills in July. Rachael Brown narrowly missed selection and is first reserve for her age group.

Stuartholme was also represented by Zoe Morris and Elizabeth Curtis at the Taylor Bridge District Cross Country Trials for 12 yrs girls.

Members of the cross country team also competed in a number of school-based  and club events in the lead-up to CaSSSA. I believe the benefit of these meets produced some outstanding results as it gave the girls some race practice.

Cross Country Captain: Jasmine Robertson in her role as Cross Country Captain for 2017 has done an incredible job in motivating the girls, supporting the cross country program and increasing the awareness of the sport across the school. Jasmine has been a terrific ambassador and whoever is selected for the role in the future will have very big shoes to fill. Jasmine, congratulations on all your hard work, effort and commitment to the cross country team in 2017. You have been a delight to work with.

Assistant Coach: this year we welcomed Emma Meyer to the role of assistant coach and what a fantastic job this young lady has done. I can’t thank Emma enough for the way she got behind the cross country program, giving all her energy and support to ensure the season was a success. I know the girls really liked having Emma on board and treated her with great respect. Many thanks Emma for everything you have done in 2017!

Sports Department: A very big thank you to Mrs Ferguson and Mrs McMain in the sports department for the huge amount of behind the scenes work that they do. Again, the cross country program would not be a success without this support, guidance and commitment.

Parents: the early morning starts, getting the girls to training and events, picking them up after training and assisting at events/functions are what parents do, right! From myself to you, it’s a very big thank you for this, I really appreciate the support that I have received from all the parents in 2017. Without parent support, the cross country program would not be a success. I can remember growing up and receiving the  same high level of support that I have seen given to the girls this year! Thank you!

The success of the cross country program comes from all of us working together to ensure the best possible outcomes! We now have the momentum, we need to harness all that energy and build for the future. Here’s to 2018 and beyond for the cross country program at Stuartholme.
