St Saviour's College Newsletter 2022 - Term 4 Week 6
Remembering Where You Came From
Last week, the Church celebrated two very solemn occasions, All Saints Day (1 November), and All Souls Day (2 November). Contemporaries have recalled but part of these special days, celebrating the eve of All Saints (Hallows), Halloween, on 31 October (not that I am sure that many would be aware of the day’s significance). This time in the liturgical year is dedicated to remembering those who have gone before us, including the saints, and those in our lives who have passed away.
It is always important to draw on those we have lost. We know that we cannot live forever, but times like All Souls’ Day, provide us with an opportunity for timely reflection to give thanks for those who came before us.
Last weekend, Art Teacher, Ms Jo Stewart, took a group of our boarders to the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane. Ms Stewart described it as a fantastic opportunity to see the art, noting that the visit was extra special because many students had personal connections with the artists in the collection who are relatives. What a wonderful link between the past and the present. Even beyond death, these artists will be immortalised, and their artworks will remain as solid connections between the past and the present.
Also, last weekend, I was driving my Dad to Mass and we were chatting about how much change there has been in both of our lifetimes in terms of technology, and more broadly, worldview. We were musing with the idea that Dad didn’t have electricity in his family home until he was 15 years old. Now most 15-year-olds are connected to the global community via the smart phone resting in the palm of their hand! This conversation was timely reminder that life moves quickly, the world changes at a rapid rate… take time to engage with those who came before us.
During these holy feast days, we remember those who have gone before us who connect us with our past. We give thanks for those whose example have left lasting impressions, inspiring us to be faith-filled people who yearn to live ‘good’ lives – be they be saints or otherwise. For all our faithful departed… Eternal rest, grant unto them O Lord, may your perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.
Farewell to our Year 12 Students
The title of Pope Francis’s encyclical, published in October 2020, “Fratelli Tutti” was originally coined by St Francis of Assisi, addressing his brothers and sisters, proposing to them a way of life marked by the flavour of the Gospel. In this encyclical, Pope Francis reminds us of the need “to acknowledge, appreciate and love each person, regardless of physical proximity, regardless of where he or she was born or lives”. Through his writing, Pope Francis, is ever encouraging us to remember that we are indeed ‘Easter people’, who seek out every opportunity to recontextualise the message of the Gospel in new ways.
The words of “Fratelli Tutti” ring true for our St Saviour’s College community. Fratelli Tutti states that “Human beings are so made that they cannot live, develop and find fulfilment except in the sincere gift of self to others”. While we have been relatively disconnected over the past few weeks from our Year 12 students who have been engaged in external exams, they have remained a sincere gift to us. Many of our graduands have already moved into their post-school pathways; however, those who are able to join us, please do so on Wednesday 16 November, at 11.00am, here at the College.
I thank our Class of 2022 for the gift you have been for our community, for the leadership you have demonstrated, for the joy you have brought, and for the gift you are to us. We pray that you continue to be people of integrity and mercy, living lives which hold fast to our College values of hospitality, compassion, justice and excellence. And my prayer for you comes from the Prophet Jeremiah, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Year 7-11 Awards
Next Friday, 18 November, at 8.45am, we will be hosting the Years 7-11 Awards in the Callaghan Centre. We look forward to celebrating the many achievements of our students across the academic, sporting, cultural, spiritual and service facets of College life. Many thanks to all the staff who are working towards making this a memorable celebration.
Blessings for the coming weeks.

Study Skills Day
Year 11 students who are ATAR eligible attended a study skills and ATAR preparation day on Thursday with Year 12 students from across the diocese.
These students heard from current Year 12 students who have excelled in their studies. They also heard from teachers from across schools about how their ATAR is calculated, how to maximise their study time and how to get the most from their internal assessments.
Year 9 into 10 Core Subject Allocations
This week parents and students have been provided with a letter of recommendation for Year 10 Core subject pathways. This letter contains important information about 2023 Core subjects and recommendations from Teachers. If your daughter would like to change from the recommended pathway, please return the slip at the bottom of the second page.
Reports for students Years 10 and 11 were published to the parent portal last week. If you need any assistance accessing these, or if you would like to request a hard copy of your child’s report, please contact the office.

Faith and Mission
All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day
To open our last week’s assembly, McAuley 3 and 4, led by Mrs Rasmussen, provided us with a touching and personal prayer to remember and give thanks for all the good things in our lives. To commemorate All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day, the students shared memories of those in their lives who they have lost. I was moved by how invested the students were with the prayer and the prayers from the heart were received compassionately from the community. Georgia shared with us a reading from the Gospel of John: “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me".
“In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you, for I go to prepare a place for you.
“If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going.”
Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me".
Thank you to Mrs Rasmussen and McAuley 3 and 4.
Annual Service of Prayer for Reconciliation
Anglican and Catholic Dioceses
During the last week, the College was delighted to have representatives accompany Chappy Cath and Mrs Hagemann to the Reconciliation Service between the Anglican and Catholic Dioceses at St Patrick’s Cathedral, presided by Fr Michael, Bishop Robert and Bishop Cameron (from the Anglican Diocese). The Reconciliation Service occurs every three years and reaffirms the commitment to gather together as a day of prayer for reconciliation and greater understanding between two communities. Holly Anderson, Amelia Claxton and Alison Douglas, three of our senior boarders, accompanied Chappy Cath and I and all these young ladies were active in the Service. This was a lovely way to recognise and bear witness to the strengthened relationship between our two Churches and a way to pray in solidarity and a common devotion to God.
A lovely aside that was discovered whilst attending the service, was that Amelia recognised Bishop Cameron from her communion service as a younger child and provided us with the lovely family photo of the occasion (below).
Rosies – Our Friends on the Street
Sunday Street Retreat
Thank you to the Rosies team for attending our last Street Retreat on Sunday – Eliza Morcom, Maryam Abawi, Kiara McMahon and Mia Sloan. Such Mercy Girl spirit was shown. We would also like to express our thanks to Mrs Maryanne Walsh OAM, Senior Education Leader for Toowoomba Catholic Schools, for her generous donations of food supplies each month for our Sunday Street Retreat.
Rosies has been providing BBQs and hot cuppas for those in the community who have fell on hard times, since 1987. Rosies provides a service across 13 cities in Queensland, three times a week. With approximately 51,000 people homeless in Australia today, there is most certainly a need now, more than ever.
Some of the visitors to our Street Retreats even equate connection and conversation to be as important as safe accommodation and food. The stress that comes with homelessness or being at risk of homelessness also increases the risk of mental illness. People would be surprised what a difference a simple chat and basic hospitality can do to impact an individual’s mental health and physical wellbeing.
Over the course of this year, a big thank you to Chappy Cath, Mrs Narinder Loi, Ms Renee Hunter and the 30 Mercy Girls who came along to Rosies with me.
Choc Challenge – Help Support the Families of our Firefighters
In the face of everyone else's fear, firefighters show bravery. They arrive at violent car crashes, and fire situations. These are just a few of the calls that they respond to. Unfortunately, they enter high pressure and purely terrifying circumstances. However, sadly, accidents happen and sometimes these men and women never come home. They leave their friends, families, and fellow firefighters in disarray, mourning and shock.
9% of career firefighters lost their lives in 2021. That equates to 202 people. So that means if every student in this hall represented a firefighter, we would have all passed away.
I have always been very passionate about firefighters and the sacrifices that both them, and their families make for saving people’s lives. This is why we believe that we must raise both money and awareness to support these brave men and women. We must raise as much support as we can for these men and women who are fighting for us.
Raffle tickets to be in the draw to win one of five 2kg blocks of chocolate that have been donated to the College can be purchased from Beth and her team during break times in Dublin Place. One raffle ticket is $2 and three costs $5.
The first price will be drawn Thursday, November 10. Tickets can still be purchased after this as there are more prices to be drawn.
For more information, please contact me, Beth, or Mrs. Hagemann. We would love to see as much support as possible because this is a very important as we can make the change in people’s lives.
Student Wellbeing and Engagement
From the classroom – “Care for Creation” Year 8 Zoo Trip
A reminder that our Year 8 cohort are travelling to visit the Darling Downs Zoo next month, forging a new partnership with the Zoo in our efforts to “Care for Creation”.
The earth and all life on it are part of God’s plan. We are called to respect this gift. We are responsible for taking care of the world we live in and for sharing all the wonders and resources the earth gives us. We are firm believers that our changing environment prompts us to stop and think about how we live on our planet. We are called to respond and to adopt new ways of living and we would like to consider opportunities for our staff and students to become more involved. This is an exciting excursion and a great opportunity for all students to learn about different animals and their habitats and they will be participating in educational presentations throughout the day. Students are reminded to return permission slips to Students Services, have your parents/carers complete the permission requirements online, through the Parent Portal.
Always Making the Right Choices
At St Saviour’s College we acknowledge that students are under increasing pressure to navigate complex social situations both online and in person. Student safety is of the utmost priority for all Toowoomba Catholic Schools; therefore, it is paramount that our students receive clear guidance and support in this area.
Young Mentors: eSafety
Schools are reminded that “eSafety” consistently update their offerings on their website. Currently, registrations are open for parents and carers seeking to understand the influence of games, apps and social media on young people's mental wellbeing, or engage in hard-to-have conversations. Topics include: cybersafety and topics usually considered to be taboo or uncomfortable to talk about. A selection of “eSafety” resources are available if you click here. Webinars for parents and carers via the eSafety website provides free webinars for parents and carers to learn the latest strategies for helping children stay safer online.
The eSafety Commissioner has launched a new program that aims to improve older Australians’ digital skills by connecting them with student mentors.
The intergenerational Young Mentors program brings teenagers together with older Australians to share digital skills and knowledge and help them gain the confidence they need to navigate the online world. The eSafety Commissioner is requesting schools, libraries, councils, aged residential care facilities and other community groups to consider involvement in the program. This opportunity may be of particular interest to:
- School coordinators looking for a service in community, volunteering awards, work experience or leadership program for their students
- School community service program coordinators
- School Information Communication Technology (ICT) or Digital Technologies (DT) lead looking for a program that ties in with an ICT or DT elective
- Coordinator looking for a program for their students to undertake in the Service section of the Duke of Edinburgh Award. CSAs are reminded that funding assistance for the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.
Blurred Minds Approach
Blurred Minds has been developed around three evidence-based pillars to create an engaging curriculum mapped learning experience for students.
- Mapped to the Australian Curriculum, targeting years 7 to 10 in Health and Physical Education
- Underpinned by gamification principles to ensure student engagement
- Supports Social Cognitive Theory
Going to the website: https://www.blurredminds.com.au/free-resources/ allows you to view the games and resources, which help parents and their children build knowledge, start the conversation. The website also contains training resources, consisting of four 1-hour, interactive workshops https://www.blurredminds.com.au/workshops/. The workshops are under the following topics:
- Changing Attitudes (1 hour) about alcohol education
- Vape Detective (1-2 hours) Vaping Education and how to make vaping uncool
- Empowering Change (1-2 hours) - a combined drug and alcohol workshop
- Virtual Choices (45 mins). This learning-by-doing approach combines modern development principles from Virtual Reality to help increase your student's resilience and reduce their peer pressure susceptibility.
The Daniel Morcombe Foundation Website
Visit https://danielmorcombe.com.au/safe-bedrooms/ to access this helpful and informative resource for parents and carers and their children and teens. Safe Bedrooms is a suite of resources which equips parents and carers with the tools to lock predators out. Online grooming can happen to any child. However, 97% of Australian parents and carers hadn’t previously considered online grooming a threat. Safe Bedrooms provides information for parents and carers on how to recognise, react and report online grooming. Through the series of videos and resources, parents and carers can learn about the warning signs of online grooming, how to protect their children and what to do if they are concerned about a child. By becoming informed, parents and carers can keep their children safe online.
Behaviour Support for Productive Choices
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, Protea Place, St Patrick’s Parish.
- Intervention and Postvention strategies on campus for identification and referral for students who may need support, across all year levels.

Student Reminders of College Guidelines and Expectations
Use of Mobile Phones and Earbuds
As per the guidelines outlined in the College Student Planner, students are not to use personal electronic devices (mobile phones or earbuds) at school, within the hours of 8.30am – 3.00pm, without permission from the Principal. Any device found switched on in the possession of a student while they are at school will be confiscated and the parent/carer will be contacted by the office. The electronic device can then be collected by the parent/carer at the end of the school day. The instruction is clear and Homeclass teachers spent a good deal of time ensuring this was clearly communicated during the start of year housekeeping session in Week 1. Students have all been asked to sign pages of the Guidelines in their Student learning Journals to indicate their compliance. These can be found on page 8, so please discuss these with your child. We trust that parents and carers are supporting the address of this matter from home, by encouraging our girls to comply with College Guidelines.
Out of Bounds Areas
The Student Learning Journal (diary) has a clear, colour-coded map of the College grounds, indicating areas which are out of bounds, as well as areas in which students must have adult supervision. I have given several reminders on Assembly to students and staff about this in recent weeks, so please review the Learning Journal to ensure compliance with this document.
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.
The uniform requirements are as follows:
- White short-sleeved blouse with red piping
- College striped skirt (*below the knee)
- Red tie with College badge pinned in the centre
- College white formal hat
- Mid-calf, white socks
- Black leather lace up shoes (no buckles, casual styles, raised heels or coloured stitching)
* It is important that students are conscious of their skirt length remaining below the knee. This may require letting down the hem, to allow for a growth in height.
What is not acceptable:
- Makeup or other cosmetics
- Earrings other than one, in each lower earlobe
- Earrings other than one pair of plain sleepers or studs; no ‘decorative’ earrings
- Earrings larger than 5mm
- No other jewellery apart from a plain wristwatch

REMINDER: This is the last week for borrowing.
All returns are due back in Weeks 7 and 8. Please ensure you check what is out in your/your child’s name through our Library Web App. All students should know how to access this, if they don’t, please remind them to see Mrs King in the library.
Years 11 & 12: If you need your textbook over the holidays make sure it has been renewed until next year – this can be checked through the library app too.
The one time of year everything must be back. There is no borrowing of library resources over the Christmas break as we would like all resources returned to their home in the library so they can be checked over and audited for the year.
Overdue and recall notices will be sent out on an automated system to remind students to return all their resources.
We have a variety of new resources that will be available for borrowing next year. So, visit the library in the first week or check out our first newsletter of next year to see our new resources.
In the meantime – check out our online catalogue for our eBooks – download and read on the go! Search as normal and look for the ‘e’ icon on the resource. Before the end of the term come and ask the library how to do this.
Remembrance Day Display
Come in and check out our display. We have some fantastic books around commemorating Remembrance Day, and what better way to honour those that served than by reading about the different times we, as a country, have been involved in conflicts, both close to home and around the world.
Keep Calm and Read ... over the Holidays
Interested in a Summer Reading Club????
Libraries are not only invested in supporting the development of early literacy skills of children from birth, they are also keen advocates of sustaining literacy and promoting the importance of recreational reading across all ages, particularly during the summer months.
The summer school holidays are a time for kicking back, catching up with friends, playing outside, and enjoying the freedom that comes with being young, having no responsibilities, and no homework for the summer!
All this free time can however result in a loss of learning gained during the school year, which is often referred to as the ‘Summer Slide.’
The great news is basic skills are easy to maintain as your kids enjoy their free time! The Summer Reading Club inspires opportunities to keep your kids engaged all summer long by reading, playing, exploring and discovering which is what the research has identified as the antidote to this phenomenon.
The Summer Reading Club is a fun, free program delivered annually by the State Library of Queensland online and in public libraries and Indigenous Knowledge Centres across Queensland to encourage children to keep reading through the summer!
(State Library of Queensland, 2022. Retrieved from: https://summerreadingclub.slq.qld.gov.au/)
Check out the following link from the State Library of Queensland:
And another reminder that you can read online through our collection of eBooks in our catalogue – head to our Library online Web app (link in 1st section), do a search and look for the eBook filter on the left menu, tick it and see what is available for you to read online! Loan it just like a physical book. Check out what a mystery search looks like in the eBook collection below:
Stay safe and keep reading.
Congratulations to Kellie McMahon (Year 12) for capping off a stellar second half of the year, competing in the National Futsal titles in Brisbane during the holidays, officially receiving her Olympic Change Maker award and being notified that she has been accepted into the Phase 2 of Queensland Academy of Sports YouFor2032, which is a talent identification process for the upcoming Olympics in search of future elite athletes. Congratulations Kellie!
Boxing super star Lady Lekaysha (Year 9) wins in Sydney. The indigenous All-Star defeated the current Australian silver medallist over the weekend. In a post-fight interview it was also very pleasing to see just how humble and grounded our champ is, thanking her team and opponent and the All-Star competition for the opportunity to show their skills and talents. This tops off a great year and it’s wonderful to see her hard work, training and discipline rewarded. Congratulations Lekaysha!
Western Clydesdales Rugby League
Congratulations to Eliza Morcom (Year 10), Charlotte Morcom (Year 12) and Mariah Brown (Year 10) for gaining a representative call up to Western Clydesdales U19 Women’s Rugby League squad. This opportunity will hopefully see them continue their solid form going forward with their rugby league and the experience they will gain considering they have only finished at either Under 16 or 17 level. The College wishes the girls all the best for their upcoming season.
The girls TVA Volleyball team won a close and tight match, finishing their season in 3rd place overall. This is a wonderful achievement for a group of girls who have been super committed to training and duty and their skill level has improved through the roof over the last few months. The team cannot wait for the new season and have decided to continue their training on a Monday afternoon. If you would like to be involved in 2023, please see Mr Hickey or the sports office for more information.
Well done to the girls Under 15 Division B team, who at the time of writing, finished 2nd on the ladder and will play for the Cup on Thursday evening at 5.20pm. The girls have trained well under the leadership of Hannah Purvis and will look to cap off a great 2022 season with a win. Best of luck.
After spitting into two teams the Futsal squad have been enjoying the prospects of games each Thursday night in Term 4. Playing at the Glennie School the girls have shown they are a force to be reckoned with and they approach each game in a serious and professional manner. The Futsal program will continue in 2023 with the school titles in March, the first big event for the new year. If you are interested in futsal or soccer, please contact Mr Leathart in the Sports office. Well done to Kellie, Kiara, Meg and Furaha for leading the way.
Certificate II in Sport Coaching
Congratulations to the year 10 students pictured below for completing their Sports Coaching Cert II over the last year. These students now have the opportunity to gain part time and casual work in the sport and recreation field, not to mention the vital results contributing towards their senior QCE. Well done Meg Woodcock, Alison Douglas, Aleng Deng, Tennille Prause and Adolphine Buloze. Not pictured but also awarded certificates are Kaysharn and Kyomie Deemal.
Return Sports Uniforms
Any outstanding sports playing jerseys or school-owned sporting equipment should be returned to the Sports Office. Could parents please check with their students if they have any items at home. Rugby league and rugby union shorts are main items that students tend to forget they have.

How to Land a Casual Job before the Holidays
1. Start looking now
]While the one month standing between today and the summer break may seem like a long stretch of time, you'd be surprised how quickly time can pass when you're hunting for work. It is recommended that you start looking for work as early as possible. Between researching places you'd like to work, writing a resume, interviewing, and getting all your schoolwork done in the meantime, a month can pass fast.
2. Practice your interview skills
Job interviews can range from incredibly formal to surprisingly casual and relaxed. Reading the room and knowing when the right time is to show off certain skills is a skill within itself, and one that can be practiced and improved over time. You can prepare by learning more about the company or the role you're applying for, asking friends or family members to ask you some practice questions, and recording the answers that you give. When it comes to job interviews, being confident and letting your personality shine through is key.
3. Have a Professional Looking Resume
Having a strong resume is possibly the most important part of any job application. It is your main opportunity to communicate your skillset and experience to any potential employers, and often forms their first impression of you. The school's careers website has a resume-builder (stsaviourscareers.com.au) which helps you build a professional-looking resume from start to finish. Once complete and once you have carefully checked it, your Resume will be ready to send straight into any potential employers!
