St Saviour's College Newsletter Term 3 Week 8
Feast Day of Our Lady of the Southern Cross
“And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour, for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant. For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed; for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name.” (Luke 1: 46)
September 1 is recognised as the Feast of Mary of the Southern Cross, our diocesan patron saint. On Wednesday morning, I gathered with four Year 10 students Regina, Amelia, Kiara, and Lily to share in the Eucharist, celebrated by Bishop Robert McGuckin. This celebration was a timely reminder of the pivotal role Mary not only played in the life of Jesus, as His mother, but the role she plays in the lives of all of us as carer and protector, and mother of the Church. May Mary’s gentleness and compassion serve to model to each of us what it means to live our lives in accordance with God’s will for us.
This week, our College community welcomed Mr Jim Midgley, Director: Teaching and Learning at Toowoomba Catholic Schools Office; Mr John Coman, Senior Educational Leader at Toowoomba Catholic Schools; and Mr Kort Goodman, Principal of St Joseph’s College, Toowoomba, to our St Saviour’s College to interview a broad range of community members around my performance across my (almost) five years as Principal of the College. Many thanks to all parents and staff who would have completed an online survey review. As a part of this process also, I completed a self-review, reflecting on my achievements in the five areas of: Religious Leadership; Educative Leadership; Staff and Community Leadership; Organisational Leadership; and Strategic Leadership. All qualitative and quantitative data will be collated into a final report that will be issued to me. I sincerely thank all who have been involved in this most important process and look forward to being afforded the opportunity to continue to lead this special community for years to come.
Year 12 End of Term Events
Our Year 12 students are currently sitting their Mock Exam Block that will provide for them a great ‘training ground’ for the External Assessment Block that awaits them in Term 4. While the ATAR-eligible students have only been in attendance for their exams, it is anticipated that their spare time at home will enable them to begin their revision process in preparation for their final assessments.
The end of these exams leads directly into our Year 12 Retreat next Tuesday through Thursday at Coolum. This is always such a special time of reflection, sharing and time spent well together.
As has been noted on previous communications, Week 10 of this Term, normal Year 12 classes will resume from Monday until Wednesday. The end of Term 3 will culminate in our Year 12 End of Year Awards ceremony on Thursday 16 September, which will be held at the Callaghan Centre from 8.45am. A morning tea will follow for our Year 12 students and their families at the Hall until 10am, when we will make our way down to St Patrick’s Cathedral and celebrate the Valedictory Mass as a College family at 10.15am. At the celebration’s conclusion, the girls will prepare themselves for their Valedictory Dinner at Clifford Park Racecourse, commencing at 5pm. Many thanks to all the staff involved in the organisation of these events including Ms Georgina Bayly, Mrs Kathy McDonald, Mrs Lisa Cocks, Mrs Jess Wade, Mrs Heather Hagemann and Mr Ryan Baines. We look forward to celebrating our Senior Class of 2021!
Father’s Day Breakfast
It was wonderful to gather with more than 100 guests to celebrate our fathers at Thursday’s breakfast. Strong male role models are so critical to lives of our Mercy Girls and I thank all in attendance for taking the time to be with us, reminding our (your) girls that they matter, and that they have a strong male presence in life’s corner, which is not something to be taken for granted. Happy Father’s Day for Sunday to all our fathers, grandfathers, stepfathers, and significant male role models in our lives! Special thanks to Rodney and CaterCare who prepared the sumptuous breakfast and to Ms Georgina Bayly for her organisation of the event.
External Exam Preparation Period (EEPP)
EEPP 2021 is a Toowoomba diocese initiative available to all Year 12 students in the second week of the school holidays to engage in revision and feedback intensive sessions, which endeavours to build skills in preparation for the October/November external exam block. The experience will be run and facilitated here at St Saviour’s College, with teachers from across the diocese serving as expert teachers who will be paid to serve as subject ‘Mentors’. A great amount of work has gone into this experience, which I am sure will prove to have great results for our senior students. All our ATAR-eligible students are encouraged to participate.
CTJ Day – Staff Planning this Friday 3 September
This Friday, we have a pupil free day that, traditionally, was dedicated to ‘Consistency of Teacher Judgement’ (CTJ). This year, our Deputy Principal, Teaching and Learning, Mrs Jessica Wade has put together a program centred around the emerging changes to the Australian curriculum. All teaching staff will be working together around these changes to improve on our practice as we continue to provide quality learning and engagement for our students.
Blessings for the coming weeks.
Deputy Principal - Curriculum
Year 8, 9 and 10 Subject Selections
Thank you to all students who participated wholeheartedly in the subject selection processes. Student across years 8, 9 and 10 are now being placed in their subjects and students and parents will be notified of subject allocations in the coming weeks.
Year 10 SET Planning
Last week students in Year 10 undertook their Senior Education and Training planning interviews with either Mr Grierson or myself. These interviews were outstanding. Students were well prepared, had considered and could articulate their plans for the future and were keen to map out learning pathways that would align to their vision for a life beyond school. I was so grateful to be able to sit with students and their parents to hear the students’ future goals, planned pathway - it is a lovely reminder of the passion, vitality, and hope-centred nature of the young people we work with every day.
SET planning and Senior subject selection can be a challenging time for families and students and a time when expectations, realities and assumptions can collide. If, over the coming weeks, families and students would like to revisit their SET plan meeting or want some extra information on pathways discussed, please contact Mr Grierson or myself. Thank you to Mrs Cocks for all her work in the preparation and organisation of the SET plan materials.
Year 12 General Mock Exams
Year 12 students have undertaken their mock exams this week in preparation for their External Exams in October. This experience - of completing exams that reflect the length, complexity and challenge of the externals - is one important step in preparing students for success in their final challenge.
Year 12 students will receive their papers back on Friday of Week 9 and Monday of Week 10. These lessons will be dedicated to working with students to discuss what they know and don’t know, the strengths in their response as well as their weaknesses, as well as formulating a clear study plan for the final three weeks leading up to the exam block in Term 4.
TCSO External Examination Preparation Program
The Toowoomba Catholic Schools Office is once again offering our students the opportunity to network with other high achieving Year 12 students who are pursuing exemplary results in external exams, through the External Examination Preparation Program. Students are offered preparatory courses in English, Mathematics, SOR and Science courses. They are run by expert teachers in the diocese and are very highly regarded by all past participants. St Saviour’s College will once again host this program. I implore all students sitting external exams to register for the subjects on offer. Please see Mrs Wade if you have any questions.
End of Term Assessments and Examinations
Many students will now be ‘feeling the pinch’ of assessment time. Week 8 and 9 is often the time when many drafts, assignments and projects are due, and this can coincide with exams in other subjects. It is a time when organisation is rewarded, and avoidance and procrastination can be disastrous.
Students should be completing work at home each afternoon on their subjects as well as some revision, organisation, and note-making activities to review what they have been learning each day. These routines will mean that, with a little done each day, the end of term is more manageable and students are better prepared for their assignments and exams.
Parent Teacher Interviews
Notifications of parent teacher interviews will be email to parents in the coming week. Please check your email for more details on how to book through the Sentral Parent Portal.
Assistant Principal - Mission and Student Wellbeing
Faith and Mission
Last week on assembly, Goretti 1 and 2 shared with us a beautiful opening prayer, celebrating our First Nations peoples. Some vibrant artworks of stories, traditions and spirituality were included throughout the prayer as well as wise words from our First Nations people’s ancestors, and a Fire Blessing.
We also congratulated our QATSIF graduating seniors (pictured below) Georgia, Lanease, Sophie, Taya and Deb.
Denim for Dolly – Xavier House
Xavier House Captain, Charlotte Morcom, addressed assembly last week with the annual Xavier awareness campaign around the Denim for Dolly initiative. Charlotte spoke about Dolly’s story and what Dolly’s Dream means:
Dolly Everett was just 14 years old when she took her own life after being horribly cyberbullied. Dolly went to high school in Warwick, which is why her story hits so close to home. The next video is an ad created by 15-year-old Charlotte McLaverty that depicts how modern bullying is more than just sticks and stones in the playground.
One in five young people report being cyberbullied in any one year, according to research by the advocacy organisation Dolly's Dream, which was established by Dolly's parents last year. The lunchtime activity that Charlotte and Xavier House promoted, was a great way to raise awareness of cyberbullying. All funds from selling raffle tickets and free dress went to Dolly’s parents, Kate and Tick’s organisation, Dolly’s Dream.
Youth Ministry Team
"As the heads, hearts and the hands of Jesus”, our hardworking Youth Ministry Team continue to follow in the footsteps of Catherine McAuley and the sisters of Mercy, by providing opportunities for all to live out the College Mercy Values of Justice Excellence, Compassion and Hospitality. In celebration of our theme “sowing the Seeds of Hope and Mercy” the students of the Youth Ministry Team regularly bring to life our Mercy Charism values in each of the initiatives undertaken.
Annual St Vincent de Paul Winter Appeal
We continue with our resounding support for those experiencing vulnerability and hardship this winter. Our Winter Appeal collections are growing, in the form of blankets, scarves, gloves and jumpers that are still in a useable condition to give to those who are struggling. Donations can be made to the College front office, Student Services collection area, or through your Homeclass collections box.
Sharing the Dignity
In keeping with our annual tradition to support our community, the Youth Ministry Team rolled out our Share the Dignity campaign at our weekly assembly. Share the Dignity began as a simple idea of giving dignity to women. The need has been so great, that the organisation has grown to become a national charity. There are over 5,000 volunteers Australia-wide, and provides multiple initiatives aimed at giving dignity to women.
Our collection campaign includes the donation of old handbags you no longer use, as well as items such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, sanitary items, and deodorant. Items we are NOT able to include are food of any type, sharps or razors, or scissors. If you can contribute with even one item to help us, this would be great. Handbags will be packed with a variety of the donated items and given to Protea Place. Protea Place, founded by Toowoomba local and CEO, Ms Amanda Dalton, provides support resources to women in our community who are vulnerable and experiencing hardship. Collections may be made by staff and students through their Homeclass collection boxes and Student Services. #Mercygirlssharethedignity
“When women support women, it feels like nothing can hold us back.
We may be weak, but we are also strong. We are vulnerable, but we are also invincible.
We know fear, but in its face, we can be brave.
We too often remain silent, but when we find our voice, we can change the world.”
Rochelle Courtenay - Share the Dignity founder
The College maintains its commitment to supporting all students attending St Saviour’s to feel safe, loved and that they belong. The College promotes social and emotional learning (SEL), which is about developing the ability to care for others, make responsible decisions, establish positive relationships, and handle challenging situations. These skills are essential for developing resilience and the personal attributes that promote wellness, prevent illness and support recovery. The College also employs a best practice model of engaging with families and to provide a restorative approach to conflict within the community. Our College Pastoral Program embeds the PERMAH approach to wellbeing, with a Catholic lens of our Core Values. Our Wellbeing team actively encourages:
- Partnerships with other schools (St Mary’s College, St Saviour's Primary School, our Mercy partner schools and other Toowoomba Diocesan and Catholic Colleges).
- Family Engagement by invitation to our regular College events, our fortnightly newsletter, social media platforms (check out our Facebook and Instagram pages!).
- Strong community ties with local support and social justice agencies such as Toowoomba Transition Support Services, St Vincent de Paul, St Patrick’s Parish.
- Intervention and Postvention strategies on campus for identification and referral for students who may need support, across all year levels.
- A supportive Wellbeing Team, trained and with experience in restorative practices and mental health and wellbeing, consisting of:

We acknowledge and support the importance and effectiveness of training in the area of mental health first aid. Therefore, by the end of this year, all staff at the College and 50 per cent of our student body will be trained in the field of Mental Health First Aid. Mike Thomason, Education Officer: Guidance Counsellor Coordinator and School Support, has been instrumental in making this a reality for our College, and we encourage other schools to offer this comprehensive and personalised school programs to staff and students.

Student Reminders of College Guidelines and Expectations
Bullying (inclusive of cyberbullying)
There is no place for bullying at St Saviour’s College. Bullying is a repeated pattern of behaviour, which includes name-calling, taunting, mocking, making offensive comments, kicking, hitting, pushing, theft, inappropriate text messaging, sending offensive or degrading images by phone or internet, producing offensive graffiti, gossiping, excluding people from groups, and spreading hurtful and untruthful rumours.
Cyberbullying is a repeated pattern of behaviour, defined as, ‘the aggressive, intentional act carried out by a group or individual, using electronic forms of contact, repeatedly and over time against a victim who cannot easily defend him or herself’. St Saviour’s College is committed to promoting responsible and positive use of social media sites.
Cyberbullying behaviour can include:
- abusive texts and emails
- hurtful messages, images or videos
- imitating others online
- excluding others online
- humiliating others online
- spreading nasty online gossip and chat
- creating fake accounts to trick someone or humiliate them
How common is it?
In the 12 months to June 2017:
- 1 in 5 Australian young people reported being socially excluded, threatened or abused online.
- 55% sought help from their parents, 28% from their friends; 38% blocked the offending social media account; 12% reported it to the website or platform.
- 1 in 5 Australian young people (15% of kids, 24% of teens) admitted behaving in a negative way to a peer online - such as calling them names, deliberately excluding them, or spreading lies or rumours. Of these, more than 90% had had a negative online experience themselves.
Here at the College, members of our community are modelled respectful behaviour, with our positive interactions with one another. There is no room for negativity at St Saviour’s.

BOOK WEEK CULMINATION – What a great week we had in the library and across the school celebrating all things reading! Book Week is a special time to acknowledge the role reading and literacy plays in our lives, both academically and socio-emotionally.
Our culminating event was our Book Quiz that was held in the Hall and what a fantastic, fun afternoon. The students were amazing with their participation and enjoyment, I think I even heard some of them saying they wanted to check out the books we were asking questions on!
Bring on next year’s celebrations! But don’t forget that reading is about consistency and even if we are celebrating specifically at this time of the year, reading is a yearlong, life-long activity that benefits us in whatever we do. With that in mind Australia Reads is coming up – check out the date further below, and Keep Calm and Read On.

The Rugby 7s competition will kick off again in Term 4 2021. This year St Saviour’s College have two teams - 13s and 15s. Students who are interested need to attend training and collect paperwork in the coming weeks to make sure they are cleared to play. Students will need to pay $25 to cover the cost of insurance for the 2021 season. Any questions or queries regarding Rugby 7s please see Mr Leathart.

After a slow start, the Wednesday afternoon competition is coming alive and our girls are doing well learning some of the basic skills and demands of the game through competition against other schools. Students are reminded that if they are helping, they need to be dressed appropriately and conduct themselves which represents the college in a positive manner.
Tuesday Night Volleyball
Students playing Tuesday night volleyball are also reminded that the way you conduct yourselves is always on display to the greater public. It has been great to see some of the results in this competition with the girls able to work on some skills in an authentic performance environment. Games and duties will continue until the end of term and resume after the term 3 break. Students are reminded that if they are helping, they need to be dressed appropriately and conduct themselves which represents the college in a positive manner.

Sport and Student Responsibilities
School sport is a privilege, and the college has worked hard over the years to increase the standards and opportunities in numerous sports for our students to participate in. Failure to attend academic support or submit drafts means you could be removed from these teams until your work is up to date. The college trusts that students will make the right decisions about their studies. Any questions please see Mr Leathart.

Winter Showcase 2021
Last Thursday, the talents of St Saviour’s College were well and truly on show. With the diverse amount of participants, it was a fabulous display of the Arts. It was wonderful to see students who would not normally perform in front of an audience have the opportunity to showcase their talents. A special mention to Year 12 student Kate Hudson-James for her organisation prior to the event and being MC for the night, as well as performing several acts herself.
A highlight was Kate’s rendition of “On My Own’, a reprise of her first Showcase piece in Year 7. The Saviour’s Sisters sang beautifully and we enjoyed seeing them in the Paul Morton Coral Festival at the Empire Theatre on Tuesday night.
A huge thank you to Hazel Johnson for the organisation of the Fashion display, Joanne Stewart and Wes Irwin for curating the Visual Art display, Chris Grierson for the fantastic organisation of the delectable savouries and soup, Adele Sretenovic and the Interact students for liquid refreshments, Jennifer Potter for her lightboard wizardry, Lucy Leicht for all the preparation into many fantastic acts and the fantastic backstage talents of Berni Gray. The night could not have gone as smoothly as it did without your support.
The opportunities for the Arts students at the College are growing and we hope to see more in the future.
