  Last week I had the opportunity to attend a National Conference on Girls’ Education.
  I was particularly taken by one core message that kept being articulated in many ways at each
  workshop, from every keynote speaker and in most of the informal conversations over lunch and
  morning tea.

  This idea was the importance of self confidence in the learning processes of a girl, not only for her
  success at school but also for her success into the future beyond school - that the skills nurtured and
  taught at home, affirmed and consolidated at school, are the skills she will need for life. What a
  huge life responsibility which is very much a co responsibility we share with you our families!

  What does this self confidence look like and how can we make sure together that we nurture and
  challenge it to grow?
  At Nagle this week this self confidence was expressed and nurtured in a number of ways.

  * A delighted Mrs Serbin speaking about the girls who had just completed their entries for the
  Maths Challenge and the inquisitiveness of her Year 8 Maths class. Each girl she spoke about has
  self confidence in her ability to learn, even when the learning becomes difficult or challenging.
  These girls do not give up on themselves and neither does their teacher! These girls do not get
  caught up in some of the excuses of “it’s too hard so I won’t keep trying” or “it takes too much time
  to do this” or perhaps the excuse from home “Mum and Dad weren’t good at Maths at school so it
  doesn’t matter...” These girls are taking responsibility for their learning and becoming increasingly
  self confident.

  * Hard working and determined Senior School Leaders working tirelessly to ensure that the
  Walkathon was a memorable community day. Despite the fear that at one stage the Walkathon
  might have to be cancelled, it was their leadership, their self confidence and determination to make
  the day a positive experience that triumphed.

  * Talented and sometimes exhausted students and staff working together to ensure the upcoming
  success of our musical Flapper. What self confidence and skill it demands to perform in front of the
  large crowds that are expected to attend the three evening performances. Have you bought your
  ticket yet?

  How can you nurture and grow this self confidence at home?
  Where possible try to keep the lines of communication open with your daughter, ask her about her
  work, look at her diary, show a real interest in what she is working on. Make sure that the message
  you are giving her about learning is a positive one – reward her successes and help her to see her
  “disappointments” as challenges for future improvement. Where possible, if your own experiences
  of school were not positive try not to let that prejudice your support of your daughter’s potential.
In this way, working in partnership, we can provide opportunities for each girl to grow into self
confident, resilient young women who will be more than ready and very able to take their place in a
society that in many ways still places restrictions upon what a woman can be involved with. We
must help her to see that her place in the world is anywhere that she wants it to be and that in order
to achieve that place she has to have self confidence in her ability to learn, especially when the
learning becomes difficult.

I would like to take this opportunity to formally congratulate Ms Melissa Kervinen who has been
successful in completing her accreditation for competence by the Institute of Teachers.

I leave you with this Greek proverb “all things good to know are difficult to learn” and I would
add, but are well worth the effort!

Please keep in your prayers the Casey and Macready families whose grandmothers passed away last
week. May they rest in peace.

May you feel God hold you in the palm of his hand.

Mrs M.Leask

Changes to Child Protection Legislation

At the beginning of the year I told you of the College’s acronym for the year OPEPAS which
summarises the attributes of a successful learner.
The letter A stands for attendance.
Recently I attended a briefing related to changes in mandatory reporting over child protection
matters which came into being late last year. You will be aware that mandatory reporting over
abuse matters has been law for some time. Last year an additional category was added, that is
“educational neglect: habitual absence” which is defined as a child or young person of compulsory
school age who is habitually absent. The College has a legal obligation to report any student whose
pattern of attendance is having a negative impact upon their learning. Parents I remind you of your
legal obligation to ensure that your daughter’s attendance is regular and that any absence be
followed up by a phone call to the school on the day of absence, followed up by a note signed by
you. Attendance is a critical factor in successful learning.

May I ask all parents to encourage their daughters to take care of their appearance for school.
Several mornings of late, I have seen girls arrive at school with torn stockings. They look quite
tardy and are letting themselves and their school down. Please ensure that your daughter takes more
pride in her appearance. Similarly, mums are being used as an excuse for girls not being in correct
or clean uniforms “Mum hasn’t washed it yet” is the excuse your daughters give – even on a
Monday! Please mums – teach your daughter how to wash her own clothes – definitely a life skill!

saves us from exhaustion.

In the coming weeks let us give thanks for the
ordinary, and for the way in which it provides us
with a ‘measured balance’ in what can be a crazy
existence. Chittister says, ‘To the real mystic, the
passing of seasons is never commonplace. It is the
repetition [of the ordinary] that finally, finally,
opens our eyes to God where God has always
been, right under the feet of us”.

Year 9 found ‘God under their feet’ last Thursday
when they took part in their Reflection Day. This
year, the group was led by the Youth Mission
Team who took the girls on a journey of self-
exploration which challenged them, through
drama, games and prayer, to be themselves and to
‘open the door’ to a relationship with God. The
Team, comprised of seven young people aged
between 18 and 28, and from all walks of life,
made a significant impact on the girls who likened

                      (book by Tim Kelly, music and lyrics by Bill Francoeur)

It’s the Roaring Twenties - a colourful, exciting decade.

Meet Polly Pepper, a young flapper who really knows how to live! What, with Stutz Bearcat
automobiles, Ziegfeld girls, raccoon coats, ukuleles, beauty contests, goldfish swallowers and
gangsters, there’s lots to live for.

Polly’s just about to turn eighteen and will inherit a glorious diamond necklace called the “Ice
Garden”. To celebrate her coming of age, Polly’s planning a fabulous party and of course she’s
inviting all her friends. Buck Wayne, Polly’s new boyfriend, wouldn’t miss the party for anything,
even if he has to land his private plane on the lawn of the polo club.

But life is never smooth sailing for Polly.

Firstly there’s Susan Stuyvesant-Fish. With a friend like her Polly doesn’t need any enemies.
However, a more sinister problem is the mobsters who plan to steal the necklace and Polly
certainly hasn’t anticipated them. Of course, irrepressible as she is, Polly defeats them in
uproarious fashion, saving her aunt from losing her fortune in a confidence scheme and becoming
the star of the Ziegfeld Follies, and all before she has time to cut the birthday cake.

Flapper is alive with madcap characters like Mona of the Crazy Cat Club, Monica Woodsquirrel of
Radio Station atop Hotel Times Square, crime-fighter Lieutenant Fluke and “Flagpole Sitter” Lenny
Knickerbocker. And with toe-tapping songs by Bill Francoeur, like “The Roaring Twenties”, “It Has
to be Jazz”, “Mona’s Moaning Low” and, naturally, “Flapper”, it’s a show that you can’t afford to

It was a great Nagle day last Friday for our Walkathon. We were certainly blessed with beautiful weather
and the great majority of girls and staff got right into the spirit of the day with some great children’s
characters on display.

Congratulations go to all girls who completed the course of more than 8km. Apart from a few blisters and an
upset tummy, all returned in a pretty good frame of mind to enjoy a BBQ lunch.

As at Friday the total amount pledged was around $10,000 which is a pretty good effort. Some girls in
particular have been fantastic to raise a large amount as an individual. Obviously the most important job
now is to bring in the money promised. There are some great prizes waiting to be given to students when
money is received (see box below)

Students are asked to collect and return the money pledged by sponsors and deliver it to school to the front
office in a sealed envelope with the word Walkathon written with their name and Homeroom clearly marked
on the front. The cut-off date for money collected to be counted for the awarding of prizes is Monday June
28. And of course even though the walkathon has been ‘run’ we would very much appreciate any additional
sponsors or donations for students to boost their total amount raised.

In the next edition of the Lantern there will be a full list of prizewinners notified.

Thanks for your support of the 2010 Walkathon.
