VOLUME 41, NO 5 – JUNE 25, 2010 A full-colour version of the Lantern is available on our website. School: Mrs Mary Leask (Principal) Parish Administrator : Father Robert Riedling Ph: 88874501 Fax: 9831 1936 Ph: 9622 9149 Fax: 9622 4521 58A Orwell St, Blacktown 2148 Email: email@example.com Website: www.nagle.parra.catholic.edu.au 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 Principal 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. Uniform 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!

In her ever so succinct manner, Chittister manages As this is our last Lantern prior to the holidays, I to capture something of the human condition would like to inform you of a significant event for which affects all of us in many ways. In recent our community which will take place over the weeks, staff and students at Nagle have felt the coming School Holidays. On Sunday July 18, Fr ‘Term 2 Craziness’ descend upon us.

The community of excursions are held, exams are conquered, Nagle College wishes to congratulate Fr Robert meeting outcomes are finalised and exhaustion on his first appointment as Parish Priest and offer sets in, I, like many of my students and him our blessings as he continues his ministry to colleagues, find myself yearning again for the our community. ‘ordinary times’ when I have time in my day to breathe, or at least to tidy my desk! We are very fortunate to be supported by many of our local clergy here at Nagle, but particularly by Thankfully, the Church provides us with two Fr Robert given his proximity to the College. Fr periods of time in the Liturgical Calendar which Robert has celebrated mass for us on several give us the breathing space we need.

In the words of Chittister, it is this sense installation mass on July 18 as a way of showing of ordinary that ‘makes the special, special’ when our support and gratitude for his ministry. it comes, but it is also this sense of ordinary that 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 TRANSITION NEWS from Mrs Karen Vasarelli STEP UP INTO TEACHING The Step Up Into Teaching (SUIT) program is on again.

NAGLE COLLEGE presents FLAPPER (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 miss. Performances are limited, so make sure you book your tickets now. Flapper will be performed on Thursday 24th, Friday 25th and Saturday 26th June. Where?

WALKATHON 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. WALKATHON 2010 PRIZES • Highest individual amount raised in school* – 81cm LCD Flat screen TV. • Highest individual amount raised in each year group* – MP3 Player/FM Recorder/Various prizes. • Best costumes – Movie tickets and gift cards. • * a student will not be awarded more than one prize for the money they have raised. They will be awarded the prize for the highest category they are eligible for and other prizes will be awarded to the next highest student for that category.
