Ascension Day, Reunion Week and 90th year Celebrations

It has been intentional to formally mark St Aidan’s 90th year with our annual Ascension Day celebrations. On Thursday, celebrations will begin with a lunch at the Brisbane Club for our past students. Our Ascension Day service will follow at 2.00pm at St John’s Cathedral. Staff and students in Years 4 – 12 will join Sisters Eunice, Sandra and Gillian, alumni, past and present Council members, parents and staff as well as other invited guests for this important event.

Across this week, commencing with last Saturday evening’s, 10-year reunion, we welcome back past students who are celebrating their 10th, 20th, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th and even 70th year since finishing their schooling at St Aidan’s. It is an absolute pleasure to host you at our school events.

A week like this takes incredible planning and organisation and as you would expect, a huge team of staff and volunteers, working hard behind the scenes. Thank you to our alumni and marketing teams, catering, facilities and IT staff for organising such special celebrations for all in our school community.

Community Partners

Thank you to all involved in last Saturday evening’s successful P & F Trivia Night. As in previous years, the night was fun-filled, with friendly competition, fundraising for the Empowering our Girls pilot program and lots of great costumes, reflecting the ‘Back to the ‘90s’ theme. My sincere thanks to the team of generous parent volunteers who made this evening a wonderful event and of course to all our sponsors for your continuing support of St Aidan’s.

On Tuesday, our students hosted a two-course, fine dining meal that was enjoyed by our friends at Jindalee Rotary. St Aidan’s has had a long-standing partnership with Rotary Club, Jindalee and we are very grateful for their on-going sponsorship of our Interact Club. We know that together, both clubs go a long way in fostering and encouraging the idea of service.

Congratulations to:

Our Andrews Cup Cross Country team for their second placing in the Percentage and Aggregate Cups. An amazing achievement! Well done!
Olivia Doherty (Year 12) who placed 3rd at the individual national gymnastics and has the opportunity to register for the Australian Gymnastics team.
Tammy Vo (Year 8) who won a gold medal at the National Gymnastics Championships in the Level 9, 15 & Under Queensland team. Tammy also won a silver medal overall.
Amy Guo (Year 8) who won two gold medals at the Junior Open Badminton competition in Sydney for U15 doubles and U15 mixed doubles.

Best wishes:
• To all of our Alumni connecting with our school and each other across the days and evenings of Reunion Week
• To our Senior School students participating in the CBCA Readers Cup
• To our Year 5 Public Speakers and Year 6 Debaters for their annual ‘friendly’ competition with St Margaret’s Anglican Girls’ School

Block Testing Timetable Years 11 and 12
• Block Test Day Year 10
• Study tips

Block testing years 11 and 12
Year 11 and 12 students have been issued with a Block testing timetable. Block testing commences on Tuesday, June 7, with a home study day for Year 11 and 12 students. There will be no classes for year 11 and 12 students on this day. The last day of block testing for Year 11 is Tuesday 11 June. The last day of tests for Year 12 is Wednesday 12 June.

Block Test Day Year 10
Friday 7 June is a block test day for Year 10. Students are required to attend school for the full day, as per the usual timetable. They will be supervised for study sessions in between the Maths and Science exam on this day.

Study Tips
Now that students are approaching assessment, they may be finding that their workloads are increasing and that time management may be coming an issue. Effective study techniques implemented now are essential for success. Some tips to help students include:

1. Organise your study space and calendar
2. Create flow charts and diagrams. The act of transforming information from text to visual (and vice versa) is extremely important in helping deepen understanding
3. Keep a vocabulary list, and make visual representations of challenging or specialist terminology
4. Practice; the importance of practising questions, skills and procedures on numerous occasions is a predictor for success. This is also true of writing practice; write full practice paragraphs and essays throughout the term.
5. Spaced practice; repetition is good but spaced repetition is even better. Repeating the practiced skill/concept/procedure every 3-4 days will help it stick
6. Get adequate sleep and exercise, and eat healthy, energy giving food.

Many thanks go to the members of the Music Support Group for organising all the catering and raffles for the Gala Concert and thank you to all the parents who donated items for the raffles. Also, to the parents for supporting your daughter’s involvement in the music program as St Aidan’s.

Term 2 Recital
Date: Thursday 6 June
Time: 6.00pm
Venue: Auditorium

This concert is a wonderful opportunity for students to perform polished repertoire and to learn about performance etiquette.
This concert is strictly a one hour event and the order is determined on the receipt of the permission form; as permission forms are submitted, students will be added to the concert order. If the hour concert order becomes full, any additional students will be asked to perform at a later Recital.

The order of performers will be published in the emailed newsletter in the week of the recital. Students are to arrive at least fifteen minutes before the start of the concert. All students should wear their blue school uniform to the performance.

All students must hand in the permission form no later than Friday 31 May. All forms are to be returned to Senior Staff Reception or music@staidans.qld.edu.au. Additionally, piano accompaniment will be provided on the night and music must be handed in with the permission slip. No accompaniment will be available if music is not supplied by due date. Due to the potential length of recitals, we ask that students perform one item only for each study area.

Permission slips will be distributed via the private tutors.

Music Groups
All students are welcome to participate in the Music Ensembles on offer at St Aidan’s. Students need to have some proficiency on the instrument appropriate to the ensemble but all students are encouraged to sing in the choir! Any girl who is interested is encouraged to discuss their involvement with Dr Cuskelly j.cuskelly@staidans.qld.edu.au, Ms Trott c.trott@staidans.qld.edu.au or Mrs Figliano s.figliano@staidans.qld.edu.au. A full list of St Aidan’s music ensembles/rehearsals is attached below.

Instrumental lessons in 2019
Don’t forget to complete the electronic private tuition form as soon as possible and return to us here at the school. Knowing which students are continuing with their lessons really assists in organising instruments, timetables and rooms. And of course, we are very keen to hear from any new students who are interested in learning an instrument. The link to the online enrolment form is as follows:

Music Support Group
The St Aidan’s Music Support Group, made up of parents, students and staff, provides vital support to the school’s young musicians through its fundraising endeavours and its smooth organisation of concerts and other music events. The group regularly purchases much-needed instruments, music and other equipment, and also helps support other activities such as workshops and overseas tours.
The support group relies on the goodwill of parents to help with ticket sales, catering, publicity, and fundraising which are vital to the seamless running of concerts throughout the year. Meetings are scheduled for Monday evenings at 7:00pm in the Science and Technology Building meeting room (SG02) and new members are not only most welcome, but also very much appreciated. Please feel free to contact the group’s president, Paula Hodge, paula.hodge@bigpond.com if you have any questions, or if you would be willing to volunteer but are unable to attend regular meetings.

Rehearsal Schedule for 2019
In order to assist parents and students in planning, please see the rehearsal schedule for 2019. This schedule has been prepared in consultation with the Head of Sport and every effort has been made to minimise clashes. However, please bear in mind that there are usually a minimum of 2 sports training scheduled in any week and should there be a clash between a music rehearsal (offered once a week only) and a sport training students are to attend the musical rehearsal on the set day and attend the alternative sports training on the other.

Mathematics Assistance Program Term Two

It is important that students develop as independent learners. By using the additional resources on the class One Note, textbook and Pearson Places or Cambridge Go, girls can ensure they get enough practice at the range of skills. For extra assistance in understanding a concept, interactive tutorials provide hints and examples to support students through the skill.
When difficulties arise, individual assistance can help to improve understanding. All the Mathematics teachers are aware of this and make it a priority to allow time for this to happen in their lessons. As another facility, members of the Mathematics department provide free tutorials to provide further assistance to any girls who are experiencing difficulty. Any girl can turn up to the room below and ask for help with a specific difficulty. Students need to attend the session at the starting time and ensure that they record their name on the attendance roll. Girls should make use of all opportunities to ask their own teacher for assistance in and out of class.

*all students welcome to attend these tutorials, however; priority will be given to those students listed.

Morning for Grandparents and Special Friends
It was our pleasure to host over 300 guests at our annual morning for grandparents and special friends. We attracted visitors who live locally and those who travelled from interstate and even overseas specially to spend the morning with us. The students were extremely excited about introducing their grandparents/special friends to their teachers and friends and showing them around our wonderful school.
I take this opportunity to thank the staff and students for the time and energy they devoted to making this event a very special one for everyone. I also make mention of Wendy Cox and her team from Graceville Fine Foods for providing the most amazing morning tea for all our guests.
Most importantly, we thank the grandparents and special friends for making the time to spend the morning with us. It is truly one of our favourite days of the year!

Andrews Cup Cross Country
On Monday of this week, the St Aidan’s Andrews Cup Cross Country team competed at our very own sports fields - Ambiwerra. It was a hugely successful day in terms of results – St Aidan’s finished 2nd overall in the Aggregate Andrews Cup and 2nd in the Percentage Cup. A particular mention must go to our 10 years age group who also placed 2nd in their division. These results reflect the girls’ hard work and commitment to training leading up to the event, and their determination on the day.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our competitors not only for their results, but also for their team spirit and encouragement of each other; our Cross Country Captain, Stella Brown for being such fantastic role model both at trainings and on the competition day; Ms Murry, Ms Cairns, Mr Moseley, Libby Jacques and Loren Morrsinkhof for their continued support of the 2019 Cross Country Program; and also thanks must go to Ms Tracey Jeanes-Fraser for her role in organising the day as the ‘Host School Sports Co-ordinator’.

Sorry Day
Sorry Day on Sunday 26 May marked the beginning of Reconciliation Week. The first Sorry Day was established in 1998, after the handing down of the ‘Bringing Them Home Report’ when it was first tabled in Parliament in 1997.
A group of St Aidan’s students from both the Junior and Senior school and their families gathered on Sunday, with local elders, student representatives from other schools and members of the local community to mark this national day of remembrance at the ‘Journey Home’ plaque at the Sherwood Arboretum.
The Sorry Day ceremony organised by the Benarrawa Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Solidarity Group included a Welcome to Country by local elders, reflections, a reading of the Apology to the Stolen Generations, music and singing and laying flowers on the plaque of remembrance, alongside the elders.
Sorry Day gives us time to reflect, mourn and also to celebrate a proud people.

ICAS
The University of New South Wales (UNSW) is offering competitions for high achieving students and providing an opportunity for students to experience an external testing situation. Please note that there are some changes to how these tests, known as ICAS, are delivered compared to previous years. This year, the Junior School will be using the UNSW payment system and all families will receive an information letter from the school as soon as this is available.

• ICAS Assessments are now online assessments. Only the writing test for Year 3 and 4 will be paper based.
• The tests are aimed at recognising academic excellence for high potential students.
• There is an emphasis on challenge and extension.
• The tests must be completed in September and on the days listed below. Students cannot complete the tests on a different day.

The tests will take place on the following dates:

How can I tell if an app or a website is really good for learning?
Despite the claims of certain products that they teach your child to read or do maths, media that's really good for learning may not produce immediate, observable results. Instead, websites and apps with the most learning potential help your child learn how to learn -- and make them want to come back for more. It's a bit tough to find the good stuff, but it's worth it. Many of the apps, games, and websites that Common Sense reviews also are rated for learning potential.
Products that lay the foundation for lifelong learning encourage questions, foster curiosity, and support critical thinking. They teach by engaging kids, building concepts and deep understanding, providing feedback about performance (and adjusting difficulty accordingly), and providing opportunities to strengthen learning beyond the play session. A few that incorporate these qualities include open-ended sandbox games such as Minecraft, creative games such as Faces iMake, and math apps/sites such as DragonBox and Get the Math. For more information check the link to Common Sense Media (Australia).

Speed Limit Changes to Oxley Road
In case you were not aware, from Tuesday 28 May 2019, a new 40km/h speed limit will apply at all times on Oxley Rd, Corinda, between Martindale and Hassall Streets. In addition to Council, the Department of Main Roads and Queensland Police have endorsed this change. It will be enforceable if the Police choose to do so.
The changes include new 40km/h speed signs and road markings, and 'High Activity Zone' warning signage.

Andrews Cup Cross Country Results
On Monday 26 May, the Andrews Cup Cross Country was held at Ambiwerra Sports Fields, Corinda and an outstanding team effort saw the St Aidan’s Junior School Cross Country team place second in both the Aggregate and the Percentage. Particular mention must go to Isabelle Mortensen who won the 10 year age group and to our 10 Years Age Group collectively who also placed 2nd in their Year level. All girls are to be congratulated on their effort.
All team members are to be congratulated on their commitment leading into the competition and on the day of the competition. Training commenced in Week Two of Term One and the attendances and efforts have led to great individual and team results at the Andrews Cup. I would like to thank the parents who supported the runners at Ambiwerra – your encouragement was appreciated by all girls. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our Cross Country Captain, Stella Brown for being such fantastic role model both at trainings and on the competition day. A further thank you must be extended to our Head Coach, Ms Murry, Ms Cairns, Mr Moseley, Libby Jacques and Loren Morrsinkhof for your continued support and commitment to the 2019 Cross Country Program.

Year 4 Beginner Band
St Aidan’s has an outstanding Classroom Music Program, and the introduction of Every Day Music from Kindergarten to Year 3 means that students are not only immersed in music, but that they are developing an independent and sophisticated understanding of essential musical skills and knowledge for the level. It is clear to the classroom and music teachers that students are reaching musical benchmarks early and with greater competence. In an attempt to ensure that students receive every opportunity to learn a musical instrument, the students in Year 4 are invited to again be part of the Beginner Band Program at St Aidan’s. The Beginner Band lessons will occur weekly on Tuesdays during assembly time (12.40pm).
