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.

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
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.
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.

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
our students would be involved in sporting activities. Your time and effort is greatly appreciated by everyone at the College.

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

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.
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.
“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
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

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.
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.
Dean of Curriculum
middLE sChooL mattErs!
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.
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
unit concluding the eventful term with a humorous clowning
performance. The drama students developed creative and
imaginative performances aimed at a younger audience that
explored a theme of their choosing. The engaging performances
included jokes, mime, slapstick, trickery and surprises and
entertained the beautifully behaved audience; Miss Warwick’s
Year 7 English class. It was a great conclusion to an enjoyable
unit. Some photos included in this edition.
year 9 drama
The Year 9 drama students have just completed their
performance poetry unit which developed aspects of voice
in the three categories of interest, clarity and audibility. The
students concluded this term with a polished performance
poetry piece which used a variety of modulation devices to
bring a poetry text to life. The performances used poems that
explored themes of friendship, beauty and superstition and all
of the students are to be commended on their efforts. This was
a great conclusion to an interesting and engaging unit.

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.

Super Centre. 40 of our top Athletes will be training as professionals
for three days as part of the College program. Athletics training will
resume after the break and all students in the squad need to commit
to regular sessions.
Trimester 3. The first week of TAS is the first Saturday back and it is
AWAY to Scots with JTAS starting the seek after.
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.
