P AGE 2 TERM 1, ISSUE 12 directly from their Catholic primary school. Families of all other prospective students may contact the College to be sent an Enrolment Pack or may collect them from Reception at either campus. Please direct any enrolment enquiries to Ms Amanda Arnot, Enrolment Registrar. Enrolment applications for Year 7 2012 will close on Friday 11 June 2010 (Week 9 of Term 3). First round interviews will be organised in Term 3 2010 and offers sent later that term. As the number of applications always exceeds available places, it is important to adhere to these timelines for your child to be considered. There will be further interviews and offers made later though Term 4 2010 and first Term 2011 for the Year 7 2012 intake as places become available. Cross Country Carnival and Camp Congratulations to all involved in the Cross Country Carnival on Thursday at Mornington. A number of students from Rosebud also competed in preparation for the SIS Interschool Carnival. Students and staff from both campuses will be attending the annual Cross Country Camp at Main Ridge from Wednesday 5 May through to Friday 7 May. The squad under the direction of Manager, Mr Terry Luppino, will be preparing for their involvement in the SIS Championships later this Term when Padua College will be aiming for its 23 rd successive victory, undefeated since 1988. Kind regards, Anne King & Carmel Reznicsek ACTING CO-PRINCIPALS In the first part of Term 2 each of the Franciscan Gold cluster of houses on each campus will be celebrating their house activity week. Our new Chapel of St Francis of Assisi which was opened at Mornington last year has the key words of the St Francis Peace prayer inscribed in bluestone blocks as an entrance to the chapel itself. It is a wonderful prayer and well worth our continual reflection as a school community with a Franciscan heritage. Peace Prayer Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love, Where there is injury, pardon, Where there is doubt, faith, Where there is despair, hope, Where there is darkness, light, And where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master grant that I may not so much seek To be consoled, as to console, To be understood, as to understand, To be loved, as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, It is in pardoning that we are pardoned, And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen

P AGE 3 VET news @ Padua TERM 1, ISSUE 12 Welcome back to Term 2! Well done to all of the students who completed their work placement requirement during the Term 1 holiday break. Employer evaluations are steadily coming in, and thus far, all reports have been very positive. Once each individuals report is received, a copy will be mailed home to the student. If concerns have been raised by an employer, I will meet with the students to discuss strategies for future improvement. For those students who have not arranged a work placement to date, a letter should have been received indicating the requirements which still need to be met. Can I remind students and families that this is an integral part of all VET programs and guidelines stipulated from the VCAA. Students who attend VET programs are reminded of the following: • Performance at Padua College is of utmost importance. It is a privilege for students to participate in VETiS programs. If a student’s performance at school deteriorates, the students place in VET will be reviewed and withdrawal may occur. • Students are expected to sign out of Padua College before leaving for VET programs. A one hour time allocation is given to allow travel to the RTO. For example, if a student’s VET class commences at 1 o’clock, students can sign out at 12. • Students are expected to set up a “Buddy System” to assist them with catching up on any work missed. • Attendance at VET is given priority over Padua classes unless students have been informed about attending a compulsory event, e.g. Year 12 Retreat or an exam or SAC has been scheduled. In these instances students should check with Mrs Bolch first. Students are also expected to inform their trainers at VET of their absences. • If students attempt to sign out earlier than their allocated time, the Absence team will contact me to gain approval. If no permission letter has been received from Parents, students will be asked to return to class. I thank you all for your cooperation with the above matters. These systems are in place to ensure that all students are safe and are maximising their learning opportunities. Chisholm – Community Recreations and Outdoor Recreation This is to advise that all Community Recreation and Outdoor Recreation classes on all campuses will finish early on Wednesday 26 May, 2010 as staff have a meeting to attend. Classes will run from 1.00pm as usual, but will finish at 3.00 pm. Chisholm – Landscaping Advanced notification - Landscaping students will be going to Greens Bush on an excursion on Friday 14 May. We will be leaving the Chisholm campus at 9.00am and returning by 3.00pm. Permission forms will be given to students in the near future. School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBAT’s part time status) On many occasions students have signed up to complete Certificate training as part of their part time employment out of school hours. It is important for any student who has enrolled in these programs for them to bring in results to Mrs Bolch in the Careers Office. In many instances the completion of these Certificates can contribute to both the VCE and VCAL requirements, however details of Training Plans and Results must be given to the College before Late October. Dates for your Diary 3 May, 2010 Final opportunity to submit Work Placement Arrangement form for Term 2 holidays 14 May, 2010 Chisholm TAFE – Landscaping Excursion (details to come) 26 May, 2010 Chisholm TAFE - Community and Outdoor Recreation Classes finish early 28 June – 2 July, 2010 Next opportunity for Work Placement to be completed
