        COUNSELLING - Family Matters


  “It takes a village to raise a child.” These words have been spoken by a number of notable speakers including
  Hillary Clinton. Is this a relevant comment today or is it something that was only relevant in days gone by? The
  increasing use of technology today seemingly is allowing teenagers (and younger people) to keep in contact
  with ‘friends’ and some will proudly proclaim that they have hundreds of ‘friends’ on their Facebook account, or
  other social networking sites. This may seem to parents as though it is good for their children to have this access
  to others, but is it really as it seems? What I am observing from countless numbers of students who at times
  are feeling isolated is that the less face-to-face contact that is being had with other children, the more that the
  internet is being used as a substitute. With this being the case it becomes a world that compresses for the child.
  It becomes easier, but not as satisfying, to contact others through the internet and hence their interactions and
  face-to-face resolution of issues that arise normally between people, occurs less often. Therefore, the social skills
  that are normally developed through interacting with others are not being developed to the extent they once
  were.
  What does this mean and especially what can parents do to circumvent this? It is not (yet) the majority of
  students for whom this is an issue, and yet it is a significant issue for an ever increasing number of our students.
  We are, by nature, social creatures. Isolation, whether by self-determination or by the actions of others makes
  one more introspective. The more one becomes introspective, the more one focuses on one’s self, the more likely
  the individual is to experience depressive symptoms, because being involved with meaningful others, in the real
  world, is an antidote to feelings of being down. Does your son spend hours on the internet? Does he engage
  with others in the real world, outside school hours? Does your son have a TV or computer in his own room such
  that you are not aware of whom he is communicating with and for how long? Does your family communicate
  together over a meal at least once a week?
  These are all aspects of parenting over which you have some degree of control, and if you think that your son is
  far too insulated from friends, then you, with him, can negotiate some new rules that all may be satisfied with.
  Notice I did not say happy, because making some changes in these areas may not be what your son wants, but at
  the end of the day, as a parent, you have the right and the responsibility to make decisions that you think will be
  the best thing for your son in the long run.

        MIDDLE SCHOOL



Rock & Water     One of the exciting units offered to our Middle School students as part of their Life Skills Program
                 is “Rock and Water”.
                 Introduced to IGS in 2008, it is a course based on skills for physical-social teaching with boys.
                 Originally developed in Holland as a reaction to a perceived increase in negative teenage male
                 behaviour, the program now operates in a large number of Australian schools.
                 The building-blocks of the Rock and Water course are self-control, self-reflection and self-
                 confidence. Building on this foundation, attention is paid to the themes of safety, assertiveness,
                 communication, ‘connection’ to others and direction in life. It can be considered a self-defense
                 program, but one that teaches both physical AND social/emotional skills. The development of
                 physical self-defence is not merely a goal in itself but a means to develop the social/emotional skills
                 so necessary in the day-to-day lives of our young men.
                 We believe this program has great potential to equip our students with many of the necessary skills
                 for a successful school experience and in fact, life.
                 If you would like to learn more about the Rock and Water course, please ask your son, or contact
                 one of this year’s instructors - Mr Steven Church, Mr Darren Hines or Mr Fabian Horridge.

          HEALTH CENTRE


Influenza...   We have a flu spreading through our school community. The symptoms are high fevers, headache and
               nasal mucous for approx 4 days and a cough that is lasting for 2-3 weeks. As per our school policy,
               parents are asked not to send children to school who are sick. The most effective treatment has been
               paracetamol, fluids and rest.

          ECONOMICS


Free Ecoman    In the July vacation, 21 IGS boys participated in the Ecoman program. For the first time a school is
Program        being offered another fully funded program. It will be held in Brisbane on the 19th, 20th and 21st of
               September, 2011. It is an excellent work experience and extension program.
               ECOMAN is a three-day program for groups of approximately 18 students. No prior business
               experience is necessary but ECOMAN gives realistic work experience for those wishing to pursue a
               career in Economics, Accountancy, Management or Statistics. The program originated in Switzerland
               and is currently running in hundreds of European schools. For more details go to www.qpec.org.au.
               Two highly experienced presenters – one with secondary school experience and one with business
               experience – present the simulation to students. Students compete in teams against the other two
               ECOMAN business companies.
               The boys are given control of a company. As a co-director of an operating company which has been
               running for four years, they will attempt to run the company successfully for a further four years.
               They will make decisions about demand for their product, production outputs, sales and marketing,
               environmental impacts, training and numbers of personnel, management of budgets, income and
               expenditure statements, dividends paid, borrowings, and much more. Someone will have to negotiate
               with the Unions. All this will take place against an economic scenario for each year.
               Decisions are entered into a computer which will then give feedback as to the success of their decisions.
               Boys will find it challenging and will certainly extend their ability to think and work under pressure in a
               realistic situation. The other companies’ decisions impact on their success, adding to the complexity of
               the program.
               Each team needs a variety of skills and teamwork is essential for the winning team. Some schools are
               using this for their leadership development and selection. On the third day, parents and interested staff
               members are invited to Brisbane to see each team present their company and their decisions and the
               winners will be announced. Certificates of participation for the winning team will be supplied.
               If your son wishes to participate in this 3 day program please email mchay@ipswichgrammar.com and
               indicate your permission. Preference will be given to Year 12 and 11 students. Further forms will be
               generated when the teams are selected.

                they were both ill on the day and were unable to attend. Nonetheless; they are to be congratulated on
                having been selected in the first place. Well done, boys!

Pink Concert    Congratulations to all the boys who performed at last Thursday night’s ‘Pink’ Concert. It was a
                fantastic night which drew a really good crowd and consequently raised over $1800 for the Kim
                Walters’ Choices Program. Special thanks to Ryan Isaacs of Year 12, for his excellent organisation of
                the evening, and for his enthusiasm throughout. Well done, Ryan! You should be very proud of your
                efforts. Thanks must also go to the Music Support Group, with special mention, of course, going to
                Mrs Terry Mellor, Mrs Robyn Isaacs and Glen Isaacs and also their team of bakers, which included
                Anne-Marie Frangiosa, Angela Isaacs and Judy Vogel. Many items that were sold to raise funds on
                the night were also generously donated by businesses including Robbo’s Bakery of Karalee, Denman’s
                Party Hire of Silkstone and the Public Lighting Group from Energex, as well as by number of parents
                and staff members, which meant that all proceeds went straight to the cause. We greatly appreciate the
                generosity of all donors!
                Finally, a big thank you to Mr Peace and his AV team (sound, lighting, videotaping and screen effects),
                to Mr John Blyth, Mr Dennis McCourt and the Grounds Staff (hall set-up and organisation), to
                Mrs French (accompanying) and to Mr Henderson, Mr Snow, Mr Hislop and the rest of the Senior

         FOOTBALL

Round 8    On Saturday, 30 July Ipswich Grammar School travelled to The Southport School to contest 13 football
Vs TSS     matches. All games were played in high spirit and were tough in every age group. All boys showed
           tremendous tenacity and sportsmanship on the day. In the end IGS won 9, drew 2 and lost 2. Well done,
           to all boys on this fine performance.
           This week the ‘Player of the Round’ is Ryan Robinson for his defensive efforts in the 10B game. Ryan was
           instrumental in his sides five, two win. Well done, Ryan. Special mention must go to The Southport
           School for hosting the event. I would also like to thank everyone who was involved in the 2011 Ipswich
           Grammar Football season. It has been a pleasure being the MIC of this sport and I have enjoyed every
           second of the experience. Thank you all once again and I look forward to seeing you all next year.

1st XI     Ipswich Grammar’s 1st XI misses last opportunity...
Report     The Ipswich Grammar School 1st XI GPS campaign for 2011 ended on Saturday with a 0-2 loss to The
           Southport School at the Gold Coast. It was IGS’s third straight loss after having started the season with a
           promising run of five wins in a row.
           The back half of the season was a disappointment as chances to secure the premiership kept slipping out of
           their grasp. The match against TSS was no exception. Even though IGS went into the game without three
           regular starters who were carrying injuries, they still fielded a strong team with the expectation of doing well.
           A win for IGS and a favourable result for Nudgee against Brisbane Boys’ College would have seen Ipswich
           finish on top.
           The TSS side had several advantages including the home field, a physical size advantage and after five
           minutes of play a numerical advantage. Ipswich lost a key defender when he was ruled to have handballed in
           front of goal and was red-carded.
           Ipswich goalkeeper, Charlie Davies, then saved the penalty kick to keep the IGS hopes alive and the two teams
           went into the break at 0-0.
           Stand-in coach, Jim Drinkeld was positive at half-time, “Despite being down a player we were still in the
           game. We had three opportunities on goal in the first half and were unlucky not to be in front.”
           In the second half, TSS played a fast, expansive game and the IGS defence was being stretched. A long,
           downtown bomb from their keeper fell into the danger zone in front of the IGS goal and they capitalised on
           the scrabble for the ball to go one up.
           At this point Drinkeld had two options, “We either had to limit the damage or take some risks.” He took the
           aggressive option and moved a defender forward and made a number of substitutions in the hope of finding
           an equaliser. The IGS created chances but were unable to get the ball past the TSS keeper who was solid all
           day.
           IGS, having made their last substitution, were forced to play the final 15 minutes with nine men when injuries
           were not able to be replaced.
           At this point the task was too great for Ipswich Grammar who conceded a second goal to TSS but continued
           to play strongly up until the final whistle.
           Ipswich Grammar finished second on the table behind Brisbane Boys’ College whose form in the closing games
           of the season made them deserving winners.

         RUGBY

Round 8   Ipswich Grammar School travelled to Southport on Saturday for the last round of the 2011 GPS Rugby
Vs TSS    Championships. The 13Bs, 13Cs and the 14Bs were successful whilst the 16As, 14As and 13As played some
          great rugby despite losing their matches.
          13C (19-5) The Entire Team; 13B (25-12) Jonte Witt; 13A (12-21) Sam Wallace; 14B (17-7) PJ Ahmat;
          14A (7-12) Matthew Adcock; 15B (0-52) Brayden Leisemann; 15A (5-31) Thomas Budby/Jack Pope;
          16B (0-32) Jaamon Williams; 16A (28-38) Carlin Anderson; 2nds (3-29) Lloyd Simms-Chambers;
          1sts (17-38) Denzel King
          ‘Player of the Round’ this week is from the 13Bs. It was a great game of rugby to watch and this young fellow
          was the leading light in a very good team effort. Well done, Jonte Witt.

1st XV    The final round of fixtures saw a determined Ipswich team travel to TSS for the battle for 3rd place. With the
Report    team minus Gordon, Vakauta and Bowen, an opportunity was presented to Tom McKitrick and James Todd to
          start their first game in the white jerseys.
          The 3:10pm start on TSS Old Boys’ weekend saw a crowd gather unlike any other seen this season. The
          atmosphere was electric as the boys ran through the tunnel to meet the well-drilled and fired-up Southport
          outfit. The whistle sounded for time on and a reverse kick to our backs saw TSS win a penalty straight away
          which put them deeper into our half following a free kick to the line. Our forwards stole a line-out win from their
          opposition which relieved pressure but TSS countered brilliantly and after a series of solid moves and a number
          of breaks in play, the TSS backs found themselves with a bit of space. Some strong, straight running saw them
          cross for the opening points and a good kick from out wide had them 7-0 up after 8 minutes.
          To answer this, our forwards countered in a manner that we have come to know. After the resumption, Brown,
          Ngauamo and co. played the game done the middle with powerful picks from the ruck base and damaging
          thrusts into the heart of the opposition forward pack. This provided considerable advantage and we peppered the
          Southport line continuously. However, the TSS defence, spurred on by a large, parochial crowd, was outstanding
          as they managed to thwart our attempts to cross the line. Eventually, the pressure became too much and Parcell,
          with a beautiful little grubber kick, found Cullinan out wide and we were back in the match.
          As the half wore on we had battled valiantly but injuries to Jake Stephen and Will Lauenstein had further
          depleted our strike power. TSS capitalised on errors and had been playing very controlled, clinical rugby so as
          half time was awarded we knew that we’d have to double our efforts in the final 30 minutes of the season.
          Our plans to make up a 9-point deficit at half-time were served a savage blow straight after half-time as TSS
          spread the ball wide from the kick-off to find their winger in full flight. He skilfully eluded the defence and
          crossed beside the posts to further extend the lead in Southport’s favour. Despite this setback our boys continued
          to execute plays and heap pressure on the opposition. More ties to TSS, and a couple of our own, including a
          true captain’s try to King underneath the posts, kept us in contact but the score remained insurmountable. TSS
          deserved their victory on the back of cast-iron defence and creative back-line play. Final score: 38-17 to TSS.
          By the end of the second-half, our younger members of the back-line were beginning to feel their way through
          and it is certainly encouraging to see the talent that we have at our disposal in the coming years. They are
          to be congratulated for their efforts and attitude under such immense pressure. To all boys in the squad, we
          congratulate you for your courage and commitment this season. We are proud of every single one of you and
          hope that you continue to set high expectations and then work to achieve them regardless of adversity and
          hardship. Well done, boys.

          Manager 1st XV

       1.   Naming rights of one race on the day with exposure through Sky Channel, Radio 4TAB,
            Print Media (Courier Mail and QT) and live on-course broadcast
       2.   A full-page black and white advertisement in the official Race Book

            banners

The Tour Group makes money due to the generosity of the Ipswich Turf Club who donate back to
the Tour Group the sponsor costs less the value of two tickets.
