TERM 3 BLESSING
"May God shield you in every steep place.
May Christ steady you on every rough path.
May the Spirit go with you through every dark pass."
(Ancient Celtic Blessing)
Every so often I hear of something one of our student’s has done and it makes me cry with pride. Usually these have nothing to do with amazing success in terms of achievements but rather an act of kindness or good-will.
One such story occurred in the holidays and I asked this young man, Year 12 student Luke Temple, if I could share his story as a reminder of the good in today’s young people.
One evening in the holidays as Luke was driving home from a friend’s place, he noticed an old lady looking distressed on her drive-way. Luke stopped and asked if she was ok, and if he could help. The old lady, seeming confused and upset, said her husband had had a fall and could not get up. Luke called an ambulance and went inside to find the elderly man had fallen, badly cutting his face and was unconscious. Luke then, under the guidance of the ambulance officer on the phone, performed CPR on the man until the ambulance arrived. Sadly when the ambulance men placed the defibrillator on the old man he had passed away.
Luke however after chatting to family and other support people decided he wanted to return to the house and check on the old lady. Such a brave and powerful thing to do, as the couples children were able to hear from Luke what had happened. The elder lady has severe dementia and could not recall the incident. Luke was also able to learn that the elderly man was 91 and had been very unwell for some time.
What made me so proud, and reminded me of the wonderful faith of our young people was when Luke said to me “I don’t think I was meant to save the man, I think I was meant to help the lady.” So true Luke and that would never have happened if you had not stopped to ask if she was ok. What a wonderful example to his peers, and to all of us, of the importance of taking care of the elderly in our community and being aware of those who might need our help. It would have been so easy to drive past that evening but your kindness and compassion meant he stopped and helped. I, MacKillop and your family are all very proud of you.
CONGRATULATIONS MR TOWLE
In the last week of Term 2, MacKillop College RE and History teacher Mr Harrison Towle graduated from University. Congratulations to Harrison who is a great addition to the MacKillop team.
Please advise your young people that should any student experience an injury while at school whether it be in the playground or during a lesson, please report to the front office. Our front office staff are always glad to assist and in the case of any serious injuries or illnesses need to follow procedures in order to complete incident reports and alert parents and caregivers before the student leaves the college at the end of the day.
STUDENT AMBULANCE COVER
Please see below the guidelines on ambulance cover for students from CCI insurance.
The NSW Ambulance policy covers dependent school students attending approved, fully supervised school activities within NSW.
The policy stipulates that in the event that a student is provided with emergency ambulance in NSW an invoice will be generated in the name of the student and addressed to the parent/guardian.
On receipt of the invoice the parent/guardian should, if they have ambulance cover under private health insurance, a health care card, a pensioner concession card or a Commonwealth Health Seniors Card, record these details in the relevant section on the back of the invoice, endorsed by the private health fund if applicable, and return to the Ambulance Service of NSW.
If the parent/guardian has no form of ambulance insurance they should forward the invoice to the students’ school. The school will then imprint the school name on the invoice using the official school stamp and write “Catholic Schools Office Lismore '' as the official certification that the services are covered under the terms of this Policy, and forward it to the Ambulance Service of NSW.

YEAR 11 2022 SUBJECT INFORMATION NIGHT
On the advice of NSW Health and in line with the most recent COVID safety recommendations our Year 11 2022 Subject Information Night will not go ahead as originally planned. We will however be emailing all families a screencast of the presentation along with a whole suite of digital resources that will support students making the right choices for the senior secondary schooling. Families are encouraged to check their emails next Wednesday, 21 July and are encouraged to watch the screencast with their child at a time that best suits.
All year 10 students will be receiving a hard copy of a subject selection form along with details of how to book an enrolment interview for Year 11 at Mackillop College in 2022. These interviews will occur on Thursday, 29 July in the College Library on our Junior site. Unfortunately only one parent can attend with their child and we ask that the subject selection form is brought along to the interviews.
As always please feel free to make contact with the College should you have any questions around specific subjects or the enrolment process moving into year 11.

VINNIES WINTER APPEAL
We have officially begun our Vinnies Winter Appeal, where we will focus on making life a little easier and warmer for those who do not have as much as we do.
We encourage everyone to think about sorting through their clothes and decide what you could give to others. (Please ensure that they are clean and do not have any stains or tears).
When we give clothes to Vinnies, some go directly to people who need assistance with clothes, while the rest go into the Vinnies Shop, and the money made from their sale goes to assisting people with vouchers for electricity, rent and food.
We will also collect warm blankets if anyone has those to share.
The ministry is a really important one and so we ask everyone to carefully think how YOU can make a difference.
Some of the other plans we have during this time includes a Hot Chocolate stall, cake stall and a breakfast sausage sizzle. Students should keep their eyes open to hear about the opportunities offered over the next few weeks.
STREET RETREAT REFLECTION
Last term 6 of our year 11 students travelled up to Brisbane to participate in Street Retreat.
This retreat consisted of being involved with community services and ministries to assist with the marginalized throughout our society. This retreat has created many new memories and perspectives for our students and is going to be a special experience they keep for the rest of their lives.
SHINE unites Youth Ministry students in Parish Secondary schools within the Diocese of Lismore. The Youth Ministry program is offered to Year 9 and 10 students, allowing those with a willingness to nurture their faith an opportunity for Christian fellowship and spiritual formation in the area of peer to peer youth ministry.
This two-day event combines elements of praise and worship, inspiring keynote speakers, student testimonies, small group discussions, interactive workshops, prayer, eucharistic adoration and mass. A feature of the gathering is peer-to-peer ministry, we welcome all Senior Ministry Team members to apply for roles: small group leaders, testimony and workshop facilitators.
SHINE is an integral part of the Proclaim Lismore Students continuum of Student Discipleship Retreats, and is expected to have over 550 participants, with Youth Ministry students from MacKillop College making up some of this number. Please join us in praying for its ongoing success.
Parents/carer’s will be sent the online forms to be completed for this event, and the cost will be billed in the next billing period.

YEAR 7 LEADER OF PASTORAL CARE
Welcome back to Semester 2. I hope all had a safe and enjoyable break and were able to spend some quality time with family and friends. Whilst we have begun the semester with some uncertainty around what the next few weeks will bring, we can be thankful that we are able to return to our normal school schedule at this stage.
I would like to remind all of Year 8 to continue to tick those boxes! Wear the correct uniform, use the College Diary, complete homework, be punctual, follow the teachers’ instructions and most important, be respectful to your peers and staff.
I look forward to the next six months with Year 8 again and appreciate your support and cooperation and please continue to contact me if I can assist in any way.
Congratulations to Miya Freeman who has received a Leader of Pastoral Care Award.
YEAR 8 LEADER OF PASTORAL CARE
Forgiveness breaks the chain of causality because he who 'forgives' you--out of love--takes upon himself the consequences of what you have done. Forgiveness, therefore, always entails a sacrifice.
The price you must pay for your own liberation through another's sacrifice is that you in turn must be willing to liberate in the same way, irrespective of the consequences to yourself.
Dag Hammarskjöld, Markings
Having defeated Napoleon in 1815 at the Battle of Waterloo, it was on this day in 1827, that the Duke of Wellington was appointed Commander-in-Chief of the British Army.
After defeating Napoleon, Wellington heard someone say that war was glorious. His reply was: “Take my word for it: if you had seen but one day of war, you would pray to Almighty God that you might never see such again.”
On one occasion a deserter from the army was brought before him. Wellington was about to pronounce the death sentence on him, and said: “I am extremely sorry to pass this severe sentence, but we have tried everything, and all the discipline and penalties have failed to improve this man who is otherwise a brave and good soldier.”
Then the Duke of Wellington invited his fellow-soldiers to speak on his behalf. One of them said: “Sir, there is one thing you have not tried. You have not tried forgiving him.” Wellington was struck by these words and told the deserter that he was forgiven. Never again did the soldier desert, and he always showed his appreciation to the Duke.
Let’s pray in silence for a moment for someone whom I need to forgive, or for someone who has forgiven me…
Father, I ask you to help me to be generous when I think of the attitude and actions of others.
Forgiving someone isn’t an easy option, and I know that forgiveness isn’t somehow pretending that something wrong hasn’t happened.
For what I have done wrong, forgive me Father, to the extent that I am generous in forgiving - or hoping to forgive - those who have done wrong to me.
12 students from Year 9 were awarded for community service at the end of Semester one. This small number is anything but reflective of the generous efforts of so many of the boys and girls in Year 9.
I am aware of our young people doing both ordinary, and extraordinary acts of service. Without students submitting their record of service, we are not in a position to give due recognition in the form of a Community Service Award.
Any student who contributes a minimum of ten hours’ community service in Terms 3 and 4 is eligible for a Community Service Award. I encourage parents and students to make use of this opportunity for recognition. Seeing people doing good works, can be the inspiration for others to do the same.
UNIFORM, GROOMING AND JEWELLERY
At our Year Meeting on Wednesday, Year 9 were reminded of the College Code of Presentation for uniform, grooming and jewellery. This represents my first and only warning for those students who persist in ignoring the Code. I am hoping not to have an office filled with the jewellery of Year 9 students. I am, however, prepared for this eventuality.
YEAR 9 CANBERRA EXCURSION
At this stage, the excursion is proceeding. Changes to this plan will only occur if COVID spreads and the school is advised that the excursion is no longer possible.
Each Assembly for Year 9 considers the Rule of Respect. Respect is considered under one of four focuses:
- Respect for self.
- Respect for others.
- Respect for the environment.
- Respect for property.
This week’s Year meeting focused on respect for others, most particularly, respect for teachers. Part of demonstrating respect is student compliance to a teacher’s instructions. The understanding from which students are to operate is as follows:
You must comply with any instruction given by a teacher.
This is to be done without challenge or complaint.
Any questions should be for clarification only.
Students were reminded of the two situations in which they are permitted and encouraged to go against a teacher’s instructions. Put simply, a child should not comply if a teacher instructed them to do something that is either dangerous or morally wrong.
The Character strength focus for Term 3 is Bravery. Year 9 focused on this strength during extended Pastoral Care period on Wednesday:
- To be brave is to face your challenges, threats, or difficulties.
- It involves valuing a goal or conviction and acting upon it, whether popular or not.
- A central element involves facing – rather than avoiding – fears.
YEAR 9 LEADER OF PASTORAL CARE
Welcome back to another semester. Hopefully, each student had a great break and enjoyed the rest away from school.
Students need to be mindful on their return to school that their uniform is neat and tidy, as well as following the College Code of Presentation. If students require various parts of the uniform, they are able to purchase new items from St Agnes’ Uniform Store or second-hand items from the office. Students need to be in the correct uniform right up until their last day of term.
After some careful consideration Retreat has been rescheduled for Week 7, Term 3. Year 10 Retreat Week will be held from Monday 23 August to Friday 27 August (Term 3, Week 7). Retreat Week is one of the most important compulsory events in the Year 10 calendar, and is always a highlight for the cohort; where friendships are strengthened, reflection and growth occur and positive memories are made.
Students will be split into four groups of approximately 55 students, allowing for a more personal two-day retreat experience, and will either attend the Francis Retreat or Stuarts Point Convention Centre on Monday and Tuesday OR Wednesday and Thursday during this week.
The same process will happen for this retreat as it did for the last retreat. Students will be asked to organise their groups and then will be allocated a venue. This is a compulsory event that students will thoroughly enjoy however if students are unable to attend they will need to email our Principal, Cath Eichmann, explaining why your child is unable to attend.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask your child's PC teacher, Marg Gobius or myself.

Careers 7-10 Girls
There is a fantastic online event for students interested in careers within the STEM industry.
Choose Your Own Adventure STEM Careers Day is a virtual event demonstrating to students considering a pathway in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) that there is a thriving industry filled with female developers, technology entrepreneurs and engineers, scientists, and mathematicians.
The aim is to show students that there are endless pathways to STEM careers, starting with career stories from graduates, scientists, technologist, engineers, and mathematicians that have taken less than conventional pathways to STEM careers.
The event is on Wednesday 21 July 9:00am-11:00am.
Please email Jo Pilgrim firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested by next Monday 19 July.
Tuesday marked the beginning of the last term of school for our Year 12 students. This is quite a significant day for these students and something that our Year 11 students can also reflect on as they follow Year 12 on their journey. This day is also significant for our Year 11 students as we have reached a point where we need to start thinking about who we want to lead our College in 2022. Our SRC including the School Captains, Vice Captains and House Leaders will start their responsibilities in Term 4 of this year and then lead us through until the end of Term 3 in 2022. The Student Leadership team will be announced at the Celebration of Excellence when we farewell the current Year 12 students.
This week, nominations for all positions on the SRC were opened. Students may either self-nominate or nominate a peer. They were asked to think about the people they wanted to represent them and the school. SRC has always been an important role but it is even more important as senior students. The roles represent the whole school community, often out of school hours and in the wider community, and as such demand students who will be role models, dedicated to leadership and committed to hard work.
Students who are nominated will be required to go through an application process which includes an interview to determine their suitability to the position.
I look forward to seeing the nominations and watching our young leaders step up and take on this very rewarding role. We have many strong leaders amongst our year group and I have no doubt that we will be well represented throughout 2022.
Lastly, thankyou to all those students who are continuing to respect the NSW Health orders and wear their masks when indoors, we all have certainly found it challenging but Year 11 have faced it with maturity, respect and resilience.
YEAR 11 LEADER OF PASTORAL CARE
Year 11 Hospitality students are continuing with the work placement program in the St Agnes' Food Services Production Kitchen. This is a mandatory part of the Hospitality course where students experience working in the Hospitality industry and are able to practice skills working alongside qualified chef’s.
Students assisted with the catering for the 260 plus meals per day for the Catholic Care of the Aged patrons. Over the past fortnight, students completed the placement in the school holidays and in compliance with COVID restrictions. Well done!
Thank you to Ken Selway, Food Services Manager for providing our students with such an opportunity. In particular, a huge thank you to the Production Kitchen Chef, Michelle Border for taking students under her wing during the placement. We are very lucky to have such a wonderful collaboration where students can learn directly from experiences in the work place.
Hospitality Teacher and VET Coordinator
Welcome to the last leg of our HSC 'marathon'! It was great to see everyone back at school this week, although I had seen many of you throughout the holidays as lots of people took advantage of the JMC being open. Massive thank you to the teachers who volunteered their time during the holidays to supervise the area and congratulations to the students who took advantage of the offer. After chatting with many of the young men and women in Year 12, it would seem that most tried to get a balance between school and leisure over the break which is awesome.
Obviously you will be aware by now that the Trials have been postponed by two weeks so instead of starting in Week 3, they will start in Week 5. I spoke to Year 12 on Wednesday in our year meeting about a couple of things, but this was our main focus. My message to them was this - we have entered into a period of uncertainty where assessment dates may change, the way in which you interact with each other in the school environment may change and who knows what else may change but we have absolutely no control over it. There is no point worrying about all the what if's, there is nothing we can do. What we can control is what we personally do right now. We need to get up each day and proceed with the certainty of what that day provides. We can control how hard we work, keeping our motivation, doing practice papers, applying ourselves in class, working towards getting our knowledge tested, speaking with teachers and staying in the right frame of mind. This is completely within our control, and should be the focus. If you start looking into the future and try to prepare for every possible outcome this is pointless because what is going to happen will happen regardless of what we do, it is outside our control.
It is okay to be stressed, this is a stressful time for a HSC student regardless of what else is going on but it is not okay to be 'overstressed'. I encourage all students if they are feeling too stressed that they should come and see me so that I could reassure and bring them back to a 'healthy' stress level!
If anything, one skill that your children are going to be adept at when they get into the 'real' world is resilience! Please encourage your son or daughter to speak to me if you feel they could benefit or contact me directly.
Have a great weekend.
YEAR 12 LEADER OF PASTORAL CARE
In Term 3 our focus is on the character strength - BRAVERY
What is the nature of this character strength?
To be brave is to face your challenges, threats, or difficulties. It involves valuing a goal or conviction and acting upon it, whether popular or not. A central element involves facing – rather than avoiding – fears.
Why focus on bravery?
- We want our students to be brave in the classroom and playground - to take the risk to ask questions, to choose challenges and risk mistakes, share their thinking with others and to take critique from peers.
- We want our students to have a growth mindset. Students with a growth mindset flourish even when challenge increases. They believe that their abilities grow through trying new things, even if they fail. They tend to see failure as useful and important in the process of learning.
- We want our students to realise how they can make a difference in the world by being brave. Conversations around courage allow students to think critically about their sense of right and wrong, pursue justice, speak up for what is right and good and saying ‘no’ to something that doesn’t feel right.
- We want our students to be brave and embrace experiences and challenges that push them. Persevering in challenges nurtures confidence and self-belief that they are strong, powerful, that they can cope and that they are not as fragile as they might sometimes feel.
Students who bring bravery into their daily school life can improve their learning, performance, and engagement at school - it is a crucial element in thriving as a person and as a learner at school.
TEEN TEXT LANGUAGE IN 2021
Text speak has certainly made it interesting for teachers and parents to try and communicate with teens. We thought it might be helpful to share some of the most common 2021 teen slang definitions that we are seeing used today. Some you may know, some you definitely won’t but all are definitely good to know.

MUSIC AND COVID
Whilst recent COVID restrictions have resulted in events being postponed, rehearsals are still operating with health guidelines in place. Singing has moved to outdoor spaces with reduced numbers and the choir will continue to explore ‘signing’ activities to incorporate with their music making.
The Drumline and Colour Guard are still in rehearsal preparing for an ‘online’ submission for the National Percussion Eisteddfod. Rehearsals for these ensembles will take place at Regional for weeks 1 and 2 of this term. A bus has been organised to transport students from MacKillop to Regional leaving at 3:00pm. Students will be required to organise their own transport home.
The co-curricular music and dance showcase scheduled for this week has been postponed. With restrictions likely to remain in place for a number of weeks ensembles will continue to rehearse with the aim of audio recording repertoire throughout the term.
Please contact Rob Denham with any questions relating to the co-curricular music program at MacKillop College.
