Dear Parents and Carers 

Last week we welcomed our students back to the College for Term 2. At the Term’s first Assembly I did express my hope to them that those few extra days of holidays they received due to the Coronavirus lockdown made for a longer more relaxing break than they would ordinarily receive at this time of year, making them feel more energised and refreshed for the Term ahead.  

While Term 1 of any school year is important in having the girls settle in to new classes, new subjects and, for the younger girls, new friendship groups, I have always considered that Term 2 is really the start of the ‘business end’ of the school year for the girls in needing to get really serious about their studies and applying themselves as best they can to all the learning opportunities that are offered to them here at the College. Our teachers were busy over the break preparing work for this Term. They are looking forward to providing some great learning opportunities and it will be up to the girls to give of their best in each and every lesson. I am sure that you will be encouraging this at home as well which can only increase the likelihood that your daughters will take up the challenge to strive for their best and little by little achieve some worthwhile results by year’s end.  

I also spoke to the girls about the importance of maintaining and building on the wonderful history we have in this community of teamwork and the encouragement of others. This is true not only in the sporting fields that we compete in but also in the curricular and cocurricular areas of your daughters’ education. I am fond of an analogy I once read about to help explain how the quality of the inter-connectedness between members of community speaks to the quality of that community. The Mercedes Benz car is renowned for its mechanical excellence and style. Looking at the trademark appearance of these vehicles is enough to know that here is quality. But if one were to lift the bonnet and begin taking apart its components, the distinctiveness of this car would be diminished. The individual pieces that make up the motor, standing by themselves would look like the parts found in many other cars, even cars which would cost much less. We know that the value of this vehicle lies in the ways its parts are put together. The work done by each part of the engine and each mechanical component of the car come together in such a way that there is a distinctive quality that makes the Mercedes car a standout. Every girl at the College is important to us and each has a role to play in helping to build a quality Christian community in the spirit of Nano Nagle.

What better way to highlight this happening in actuality than to write about the wonderful success of the College musical so many of us had the opportunity to see last week. This production involved the commitment and talents of just over 200 of our students and many staff. They have worked tirelessly over a number of months, since the start of the year in fact, auditioning, rehearsing and getting ready for what turned out to be a spectacular production of the musical The Wizard of Oz. I had dropped in on a number of occasions during Term 1 to see how the rehearsals were going and the thing that struck me beside the enormous amount of talent that was on display was the cohesiveness of the staff and the girls in working together to produce what can only be described as a magical production. It is a prime example of how we create a strong vibrant community through working together, trusting that each person will perform their part, and appreciating the gifts of each and every person.   

I do want to acknowledge some key staff for the major roles they played in helping to bring all this together. I was just in awe of the orchestra under the direction of Mr Kennedy, the singing under the direction of Ms Wall, choreography and backstage manager under the direction of Ms Purser and of course the direction of the entire performance under Mrs Coster (and baby). Not to mention the costumes under the creative eye of Ms Harrison, the makeup under the direction of Mrs Irvine, prop masters Ms Bradbury and Mrs Mansfield set and prop designers Mrs Cottrell and Mrs Iacopetta. Our thanks also to Mrs Roberts and Ms Williams-Ritchie for the marketing and program and Mrs Schubert for ticketing and administration. There are so many others who also contributed to the success of this musical and they are listed in the official program of the show.

In concluding my address to the girls at Assembly I encouraged them to always learn from and celebrate each other's successes and come to see the importance of joining in with others to achieve goals that perhaps on their own they might not be capable of – whether it be in the classroom, or on the sports field, or in the debating halls or in friendship groups may they come to understand that working together makes them stronger and helps give meaning to their lives.

God Bless

Navigating an online world can be complex. Before you know it, you can be headed into territory that was not a destination considered or wanted. The eSafety commissioner has a number of free webinars for parents and carers. You can access these at Webinars for parents and carers | eSafety Commissioner. There is a lot of other information that can be accessed via schooltv.me that can be found behind the parent tile on MySRC. Thanks to the P&F for their support of this subscription.

There has been much discussion recently about consent and respectful relationships. Queensland Health in partnership with Education Queensland commissioned True Relationships and Reproductive Health to develop RRP.

The program enjoys in-principle support from the following organisations:

  • Queensland Teachers Union (QTU)
  • Queensland Association of Special Education Leaders (QASEL)
  • Parents and Citizen’s Queensland (P&Cs)
  • Queensland Association of State School Principals (QASSP)
  • Queensland Secondary Principal’s Association (QSPA)

Participants do need to register for each course, but this doesn’t attract a cost – it is absolutely free for educators and parents/carers.

There is an Online self-paced access to the RRP parent/carer pack available here.


Student Drivers

So, your daughter has got her licence. Exciting times! A reminder to these parents/carers to consider their Student Driver as per the information sent at the beginning of the year.

Increasing numbers in student drivers are being experienced by all schools. As a campus with no onsite student parking, we request that student drivers be very mindful of road rules and respectful of residents in the immediate and surrounding streets, and particularly the right of residents to have unobstructed access to their property, day and night. Authorities can regularly patrol known ‘hot spots’ such as school precincts. Illegal parking and/or driving behaviour can result in significant loss of demerit points.

Some road rules Student Drivers should be careful of and for which the College receives the most complaints are:

  • Parking less than 10m from a street intersection is illegal
  • Parking within 1m of another parked car is illegal
  • Parking on a yellow line, even the slightest bit, is illegal
  • Blocking or even partially blocking a driveway is illegal

 Cars driven by students are not to enter the school grounds.

 No student is to be a passenger in a student-driven car unless prior notification in writing is given to the Principal by the parents/carers of both the driver and the passenger(s).

The College encourages our student drivers to register their name and regular vehicle make/colour/registration with the Principal’s Assistant, Mrs Tuite. Residents will often telephone the College to report concerns with parking or obstruction to driveways. The College will then aim to locate the driver and rectify the problem. Holding a driver register at the College has often avoided residents contacting authorities regarding their concern.

To register your daughter driving to school and her vehicle, please email Mrs Tuite at principal@stritas.qld.edu.au

Deputy Principal - Studies, Mrs Maree Trims

New QCE Review

QCAA is conducting a review of the new QCE system now that it has undertaken the first cycle with the graduation of students in 2020. QCAA is also inviting students, parents/carers to share their views via an anonymous online survey. I encourage you to complete this survey (click here) if you completed Year 12 in 2020 or undertook a Unit 3/4 subject in 2020.

Assistant Principal - Teaching and Learning, Mr Martin Lobb

NAPLAN Online - Years 7 and 9

This year St Rita’s College will be completing NAPLAN Online on May 11, 12, 13 and 14.

The schedule for the tests is as follows:

If a student is absent on any day of testing, please, in the first instance, follow normal College procedures regarding absences. It would also be appreciated if, in the case of absence, an email to myself at lob@stritas.qld.edu.au could be made, indicating how long you expect the absence to be so that Catch-up tests can be arranged.

Preparation for the tests is currently underway, particularly in Mathematics and English classes. All Years 7 and 9 students have also had access to the NAPLAN Practice Tests. The Public demonstration site (nap.edu.au) is a useful resource to gain familiarity with the online testing environment.

Ultimately the best preparation for NAPLAN is the support of family and school. It is important that all students are reassured that while we all want success for our daughters and students, it is a ‘point-in-time’ test which is measurement tool only. In many ways, a good night’s sleep and breakfast is the best preparation. It is important that while we want all students to give their best, they also do not feel any overwhelming pressure or stress to perform.

Requirements for NAPLAN:

  • Students must bring wired earbuds/headphones to complete NAPLAN Online testing.
  • Wireless/Bluetooth earbuds/headphones (such as AirPods) are not permitted.
  • Students do not require expensive earbuds or headphones.
  • Students must also bring a pen for their planning/working out.
  • Water bottles are permitted.

You can access more Parent information regarding NAPLAN on the following link:

NAPLAN Online – information for parents and carers

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like further information about the College’s NAPLAN Online program.

Assistant Principal - Mission, Mrs Erica Qureshi

This Term we have introduced two new retreats to our Student Formation program. Last week, our Year 9 students retreated on Wednesday and our Year 11 students retreat on Thursday this week.  Our Retreat program falls into line with our Social Emotional Learning Program, when students learn that spirituality is a viable approach and means to address well-being.  

The concept of Retreat, of going aside from the busyness of life, in order to think and pray about our lives, is very ancient.  Human beings seem always to have known, intuitively, that sometimes we need to stop and that these times of stopping actually make our lives richer, renew our energy and help us to be clearer about what’s important in our lives.

Jesus had that consciousness, too. In John’s Gospel we read:

The apostles gathered around Jesus and told him all that they had done and taught. He said to them, “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.”  For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat.  And they went away in a boat to a deserted place by themselves. (6: 30-32)

Our hope is that our students continue to realise the importance – both through their teenage years and as they graduate from secondary education – of stepping back from their busy lives for prayer, reflection and renewal, and that these can be the wellspring from which they draw when times are both good and not so.

  • Remain at home if you are unwell.
  • If a member of your family has cold or flu-like symptoms, the Queensland Health guidelines recommend a COVID test and self-isolation until the test results are received.

 Also continue to:

  • Wash hands with soap and water frequently or use hand sanitiser if soap and water are not available.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or flexed elbow.
  • Dispose of tissues in a suitable bin.

Debating
ESU - English Speaking Union
UN Youth Queensland - FunMUN Registrations

ESU - English Speaking Union

Students interested in participating in the ESU competition are to contact Mrs Specogna.

The English-Speaking Union (ESU) is an international educational charity dedicated to promoting international understanding and human achievement through English. The Secondary Schools’ Public Speaking Competition requires students to speak on a subject of their choice inspired by a broad ESU nominated topic connected to ESU’s philosophy. The specific 2021 Heat nominated topic for each level is on the ESU website (click here) for this competition. Students in the Grand Finals will speak to new nominated topics for the required Prepared and Impromptu speaking section. Cash prizes for winners and runners up. Each student will receive valuable oral feedback on the night of speech presentation. Further information about ESU is available on their website - click here.

UN Youth Queensland - FunMUN Registrations

In past years, many students have enjoyed the opportunities of UN model debating. The first event for 2021 is now open.

FunMUN is an exciting opportunity for students with diverse interests, experiences, and abilities to participate in a fun, introductory version of the events we hold at UN Youth Australia. It builds confidence in students, sparks interest in the workings of the United Nations and prepares students for further engagement with UN Youth Australia. No previous knowledge or experience with international affairs, public speaking, or debating is necessary. The program of FunMun pits delegates (students) representing different countries big and small against each other over a range of geo-political situations and impromptu scenarios, keeping them on their toes. This means that a country like Azerbaijan has as much to say on an issue as the United States of America. All in all, FunMUN is the perfect mix of crazy, serious and outright theatrics to introduce students to the world of UN Youth and international affairs.

Further details are available about UN Youth: click here.

Further details are available about UN Youth QLD: click here.

The online registration is now open: click here.

For any further information or questions, please contact Mrs Specogna or Mr Harvey.

Save the Date - Year 10 Careers Day, Wednesday 16 June

In Term 2, in the lead up to Senior subject selection, the Year 10 girls will be involved in Careers Day. This day features guest speakers working with the girls in small groups. Numerous industries are represented and based on the request of the girls. Many of the guest speakers are parents, past students or Alumnae members. If you would like to assist us by speaking with the girls so they can discover greater insight into particular jobs/careers, please email Mrs Kylie O’Hare at oha@stritas.qld.edu.au

CareerMe App

We will be using this App for some years in our Year 10 Careers program and it contains a wealth of information for both students and parents in relation to particular jobs, industry information, average wages, required qualifications, and job prospects. The Year 10 students will be using the App in their Careers classes in coming weeks. It is available in Android version or can be downloaded free from the Apple App Store.

Preparation for post Year 12

Term 2 is traditionally a very busy Term for Career Expos, Open Days etc, and a busy Term for Year 12s to do further planning for the year beyond your graduation. Hopefully, this year, institutions will be hosting their regular on-campus Open Days, but in addition to this are hosting on-line webinars and sessions for students and parents to engage with. If you haven’t already started planning and doing your research now is the time to get it all together. 

A few valuable tips:

  • Don’t delete any careers emails without reading them thoroughly
  • Start your research now – this is YOUR future you are investing in
  • Ask many questions – the only silly question is the one NOT asked
  • Approach this process (your transition from school) with an open mind
  • Remember your decisions will be based on your research, so do it well
  • Have the courage to step outside your comfort zone or look at things a little differently
  • Always have a Plan B as Plan A might not pan out as hoped
  • Seek advice from a variety of people (don’t just take your friend’s view)
  • Like and follow a variety of institutions pages on Facebook, Insta, YouTube eg: QTAC, UQ, TAFE, myQCE, QUT etc
  • Keep all your information or research together in the one place, this will help you later in the year   
  • Add all the important events to your calendar so you don’t miss them
  • View the resources in the Careers section of the library, they are there for you
  • Look out for Early Entry Programs you might consider applying for – it is always handy to know you have a place secured long before the external exams even start

The girls will receive their QTAC Guide in June/July. It contains information about courses you can apply for through QTAC and application processes.

Year 12 students are strongly advised to start a folder of information they will need later in the year and early next year. Keep this folder in your room at home and add to it during the year. Items that could be placed in this folder include:

  • Learning Unique Identifier (LUI) number and password for your Learning Account so you can access your Year 12 results early.  You will also be required to know your LUI to complete your QTAC application.
  • Tax File Number (TFN), which you will need to apply for a HELP loan next year. You also need a TFN if you want to be paid for a full-time or part-time job.
  • The QTAC Guide, which you will receive in June.
  • Course, job and tertiary entry information you gather at career markets/expos, institution open days, TSXPO, etc.
  • The list of courses you are considering (if you haven’t a clue, make an appointment to see your Guidance Counsellor/Officer ASAP!).
  • Handouts on tertiary entry you are given at Year 12 assemblies, expos and lunchtime talks.
  • Information about available scholarships and tips for submitting a great application.
  • Additional qualifications you might wish to submit as part of your QTAC application and/or portfolio particularly if applying for EAS
  • Any other information related to your plans for 2022.
