Dear College families

In this edition you will read of student achievements in many

fields of endeavour and I am sure that you will conclude as I

have that there are many positive things for which we can be

very grateful right from Kindergarten to Year 12.

Today the Year 10’s are undertaking their Future Focus

Conference at which they have been fortunate to hear from

motivational speakers, industry professionals and tertiary

providers. This wonderful event organised so competently by

Ms Annabelle Lam is the precursor to students selecting fields

of study for their senior pathway.

Meanwhile the Year 12 students are undertaking their final

Core Skills Test practice which will be marked promptly and

used to provide further coaching in areas that may require

strengthening ahead of the test period at the end of August.

We are blessed to have teachers of high quality and expertise

to guide our senior students in their endeavours both as they

enter senior school and prepare to depart.

Across the College students have trained hard and excelled

in many sporting arenas this term. Both in JTAS and TAS our

teams in Cross Country have done very well in Red Division

and in weekly sporting competitions they have played with

great sportsmanship and vigour. This year we have achieved

more premierships across the Term 2 sports than ever before

in the life of the College and I encourage you to read the

reports contained herein.

As the outcome of our PACE Program begin to take shape it

is pleasing to note that 21 students have been chosen for

the state wide and hotly contested State Honours Ensemble

Program. The high number of students who have reached

AMEB year 5 and above is a testimony to the hard work of

our instrumental teachers and students. Congratulations to all


On the primary campus we were thrilled to welcome a large

number of grandparents to Grandparents Day recently and

very pleasing to see them sitting in on classes and enjoying

the concert items. As our college is focused on working in

partnership with all our families it is very pleasing to see so

many participating in this very significant way.

Finally 30 students attended the One World WONTOK Forum

conducted by Aus AID at St Margaret’s this week and were

challenged by the intransigent world poverty issue. Attendees

were involved in workshops to develop solutions to this

significant social justice problem as part of their service learning

program. Confronting global issues is a very important part

of their preparation to become a person of influence in their


I trust that you will enjoy the holiday break with family and

return refreshed for the winter term.

from thE primary CampUs


All staff have finalised the Semester One reports, these will be posted to families in week one of the holidays. Parent/teacher

interviews will be held in the third week of Term 3. During the interview, staff will discuss the contents of the reports with you.

If you have any questions regarding your child’s progress, this is the time to discuss these with the class teacher to ensure that

Semester 2 is successful for your child.

foundation Week Events

In week two of next term we celebrate our College’s Foundation. The week will begin with an Academic Assembly which will

recognize our high achievers in Years 4 to 6 We will also hold our APC Foundation Concert (P – 3) on Friday, 27 July in the

morning and then celebrate further with our Fancy Dress Ball that evening. Our Year 4 to 6 students will join with the Middle

and Senior School to celebrate Foundation Day Tuesday, 24 July. Information about these events will be sent home with your

school report.


A reminder about sports uniforms - Students wear their formal uniform every day of the week, except on their designated PE

lesson or PMP day. On this day they wear the sports uniform. Formal uniform, including dress hats, (must be worn to and from

College) on all other days of the week. However, students may wish to bring their sports uniform and change at an appropriate

time just prior to an activity for which this uniform is preferable (e.g. Running club, sports practices) and change back into

their dress uniform at an appropriate time following the conclusion of the activity. The only variation to this rule is for the small

number of students who have training both before and after school on the same day, e.g. Running Club in the morning and

Soccer training in the afternoon. We request that parents continue to be vigilant with their children to maintain appropriate

uniform standards no matter which uniform is being worn.


There are a few simple truths in life. Here is one of them……cars and children DON’T mix! However, in the rush of our busy days

it is a truth that appears to get lost. As a result staff, students and parents at Alpine Place continue to see drivers doing foolish

things when waiting at our Kiss and Drive area. If you use this facility I ask you to use patience and good manners for the sake

of all the children who are in this area every afternoon. Please consider coming from 3.20 pm if you are picking up a Year 3 to 6

child as these classes often do not reach the K&D area before that time. Remember students in Years 3 to 6 are not dismissed

until 3.10pm. Children are well supervised at Kiss and Drive so waiting an extra 10 minutes isn’t a hardship for them.

Contact details

Could all parents please ensure that their contact details, including emergency contacts are current? It is most distressing for a

sick or hurt child when we are unable to contact anyone. Please let Belinda at reception know if your details have changed.

As we will be posting the students’ reports in the first week of the coming holidays, we also need to ensure that we have your

correct address on file.

Semester One Redfire Choir News

2012 has seen a real changing of the guard, as a significant number of new choir members have joined us.

The children prepared two poems for the College Carnival – Rapping Jack Brown and Lunchtime – an assortment of voices.

The fast pace of Rapping Jack Brown appealed to the Carnival crowd while the reality of the playground came through with

Lunchtime: “I’m still running” has become the catchcry of least one family!

The Choir followed up with My Granny Went To Market for

Grandparents’ Day. It was intriguing to hear which countries the

children would choose go to if they had a magic carpet.

Semester Two promises to be busy and fulfilling.

Ensemble rehearsals for Term 3 begin in Week One.

• Alpine Singers – Tuesday, 17 July, 3:10-4:30pm

important that all choir members are at rehearsal on Tuesday,

17 July.

It is important to acknowledge and thank all the coaches, staff and parents, who were involved in providing sporting opportunities

to many students. Without this enthusiastic support and expertise from both staff, CAC students and parents, not as many of

The Alpine Place Campus Bazil Grumble Drama Classes have gone wonderfully this term, cultivating

in a brilliant Shakespearian themed production for parents and friends. We are looking forward

to another creative term and are excited to be presenting an open lesson for family and friends

with the theme of HEROES! Taking the Olympics as inspiration, we will ask the students...Who

is your hero? What makes someone a hero? How can you be a hero yourself? Through drama,

we will explore all the different types of heroes that surround us, sporting heroes, superheroes,

heroes of the stage and screen, personal heroes, ordinary and extraordinary heroes....the list

goes on! The term will be bursting with opportunities for students to learn practical performance skills. Bazil Grumble classes

will guide student learning and encourage learning through individual activities and teamwork. Classes are relaxed and have an

emphasis on fun, confidence, communication, interaction and imagination. Classes begin at St John’s on Monday 23 July and

are held every Monday from 3.10 to 4.25pm.

To secure your place, please enrol your child at www.drama.bazilgrumble.com.au

Primary Athletics

The Primary Year 3 – 6 Athletics took place on Thursday, 14 June, and thanks to some very

good weather, and to the staff and Year 9 CAC students who helped on the day, it was a very

enjoyable and successful day. Final results, together with age champions will be announced at a

Sport Assembly on Friday, 22 June. The talent that was on display on Thursday points towards a

successful season ahead in Term 3.

School Records

3 new school records were set during the day, Ben Roberts broke the U9 boys long jump record

with a jump of 3.49m, Mark Dunkley equalled the U11 boys high jump record of 1.20m and both

Louis Dobbelaar and Mark Dunkley improving on the U11 Boys long jump record, with Louis setting

the new mark at 3.92m. Well done. I am sure a few more records will be beaten during the course

of the upcoming Athletics Season.

Athletes will be invited to attend training during the holidays, so as to maintain the fitness levels

they have worked so hard to achieve. The District Athletics Carnival takes place on Thursday 9

and Friday 10 August at Glenala State High School, and JTAS Carnival is on Friday 14 September

at the ANZ Stadium.


LakEsidE rEfLECtion

“I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send, and

who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I; send me!’.” Isaiah


A widely used hymn in Anglican schools is ‘Here I am Lord’,

by Daniel Schutte. It is based on this verse from Isaiah. The

theme has been the focus of recent chapel services at the

secondary campus where we have been thinking about what

it means to use our gifts in the service of others, to bring

something of God’s kingdom to reality in our world.

At the same time,

the children in the

primary school have

been thinking about

‘belonging’, what it

means to commit to life

in Christ, as members of

the Church, the hands

and feet of Jesus in our

world. On June 8, nine

members of the Alpine

Place community were baptised and on June 15, they and ten

others were admitted to Holy Communion.

In baptism we are baptised with water to mark our entry into

new life in Christ, life as part of the Christian family. We are

signed with the sign of the cross and given a candle lit from

the Easter candle, a symbol of Jesus’ resurrection.

Like Jesus first disciples, we remember him when we share in

the meal of Holy Communion, he is in some way with us and

we are strengthened in the promises made in our baptism.

We pray that those who have come to be baptised and to be

admitted to Holy Communion, this term, may grow in faith

and love.

God our Creator,

when you speak

there is light and fire.

Fill us with your Holy Spirit

so that we may listen to one another,

speak the truth with love,

and bear much fruit

in the service of your kingdom;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

With blessings

year 10 Camp

Last week the Year 10 students participated in their camp. One group went sea kayaking in the Gold Coast Seaway and the

remainder of the students went to Cooloolah National Park. This can be a very challenging camp for some students; however,

all students participated fully and with enthusiasm. One of the main aims of the whole-school camping program is developing

resilience in our students. The concept of resilience and the related promotion of “protective factors” enhances academic

success and decreases problem behaviours. Resilience is a very valuable life skill to have as they navigate the obstacles that

are put in their pathway throughout life. Students are empowered to select their own level of challenge assisting in developing

their self-confidence. Putting themselves in these challenging situations allowing the individual to set new personal goals and

reach new heights. These camps would not be possible without the staff who volunteer to supervise them. Thank you to Bonn

Hatton, Kristina Hicks, Victor Ho, Melanie Gramenz and Chris Ralph for giving up their time to make this opportunity possible

for the students.

happy holidays

As we approach the holidays it is important to remember that this is a valuable time for families to spend quality time together.

Michael Grose refers to holidays as being the perfect time to build up frequent father points. He points out that these points

should be built up from a young age as it can get tricky during adolescence. It is essential to have a shared activity such as

playing, walking, fishing …….. to have as ‘dad time’. Grose points out that the benefits go both ways. Healthy relationships with

their children are predictors of good health and longevity in men. Every family will have different ways that they enjoy spending

time together but the priority is to block out time and start building your frequent father points. Happy holidays.

semester one reports

Assessment for Semester One has been completed and

teachers are in the process of recording results to communicate

and report to parents how student learning has progressed.

Semester One academic reports will be mailed to parents in the

first week of the holidays. These reports will provide detailed

feedback reflecting the Semester One learning journey. Our

second round of Parent Student Teacher Conferences will be

held early in Term Three. Full details including the online

booking process will be mailed home with the reports.

Pathways through the Senior School

Year 10 is the time for students to look ahead seriously, and

choose their pathway through the Senior School with future

study, career and vocation in mind. The kind of planning

needed to make successful pathway choices and career

decisions takes time, thought and research into the wide range

of options available. Subject choice is a personal decision that

requires a student to think carefully about what they are good

at and what genuinely interests them. In choosing a pathway,

students need to take time to think about possible careers and

use the people around them, including parents, teachers and

other advisers to discuss their interests, concerns and future

plans. The Future Focus day and subject expo the students

experienced this week are two events where students can

gain valuable information to assist their decisions. Another

upcoming event is the Tertiary Studies Expo. It is to be held at

the Exhibition Building, RNA Showgrounds on Saturday, 21 -

Sunday, 22 July from 10.00am - 4.00pm. Students from years

10, 11 and 12 are invited to meet one-on-one and discuss their

study, career and employment options with representatives

from around 110 exhibitors including Universities, Private

Education Providers, TAFE and the Defence Forces. To find out

more, visit their website www.tsxpo.org.

Change of Subjects

Some students, after reviewing their performance in Semester

One, may seek to make a subject change. Any changes will

be dependent on their being room in the class. For students

in Years 11, such decisions are not taken lightly as these are

two year courses of study. There needs to be valid academic

reasons for the change as students will have missed a

semester of study in the subject they wish to change into. It

can often be the case that poor performance in one subject is

transferred to another subject as the underlying problem is

the academic focus of the student. I always discuss this with

students and seek parental approval early in the process if a

change is to be considered. All students in Year 10 will shortly

be given a copy of their Science/Humanities subject choices

for Semester Two.

semester one

Students in the Middle School have had a busy yet highly

productive first Semester. They are to be congratulated on their

behaviour, standard of dress and their academic performance.

We are looking forward to recognising a number of students

at our Academic assembly early in Term 3. The success story

also extends to a number of our sporting teams, individual

pursuits, performing arts programs, camping programs and

special interest groups. All in all, it’s been a great start to the

year and we are looking forward to building onto the successes

of Semester One after the upcoming holiday break.

Safe holidays

Lastly and most importantly, just a quick note to wish you

and your family a safe and restful time over the June/July

break. Enjoy some quality family time together and we’ll see

everyone refreshed and ready to go for another busy semester

to finish off the year. Take care.

year 10 drama

The Year 10 drama students have just completed their clowning

tas finals

What a fantastic term of sport with so many of our teams going well, with great spirit, and commitment shown, with many also coming

away with premierships.

This time last year, we had ten teams make the finals, but came away with just three premierships, and this time around, of the nine

teams that made finals, we had 6 teams win on the day, 2 draws, and only one defeat, which is truly an outstanding effort.

Of these premierships, many were historic, with the open A Netball winning it’s first premiership ever, the yr 9B Netball team going

through undefeated, the yr 9A Netball coming back from a 9 goal deficit in the final quarter and of the game. Of the Boys, the undefeated

yr 10 Rugby boys breaking an 8 year drought for Rugby premierships.

Other deserved winners on the day were the 8B and )pen C Netball. Our yr 9 Hockey girls and yr 10 Tennis boys had nail biting draws,

and only lost on a season count back. The Open A Tennis Boys tried hard but came up against a very tough Redeemer team and went


Whilst we had nine teams in the finals, another seven teams just missed out on a finals birth, coming in 3rd.

We finished equal with Redeemer with premierships won, and this was three ahead of any other school. Looking at the individual sport

ladders, we were 2nd in Netball, Rugby (massive improvement), and Hockey, and 3rd in Tennis. Redeemer did end up the Champion

School for the season.

We will award the premiership pennants on the first assembly of next term.

For the JTAS teams, the Rugby boys only had one defeat all season and the Netball teams fought hard every week and also had their

share of wins.

So a big congratulations to all players and coaches for the term’s efforts and we look forward to more success next term and at Track and

Field. Thanks to everyone for their involvement and enthusiasm in the sporting arena this term, it has been great one for the College.

Estee Lauder Corporate store Event

We have been given the opportunity to sell tickets to the Estee Lauder

Companies Corporate store. As opposed to previous one-day sales

events, this one enables the purchaser to use the ticket prior to 1st of

August, 2012. The store is normally only open to employees. Please

see the flyer for further details.

I wish all students, parents, and staff a restful break (except when

training!) and a time to recharge the batteries ready for the second half

of the year, and the last ever Trimester of TAS Sport for the Seniors.
