From the Head of Senior School (Issue 10 2018)

Written on the 2 August 2018

Welcome back to Term 3!

Academic Assembly
Congratulations to the following students who were presented with Academic Excellence Awards for their studies in Semester 1. These students achieved 6 A's or 5 A's in their Year 10 or 11 subjects for Semester 1. We will also present certificates to Year 12 students who achieved 5 A's or 4 A's in their subjects in the 3rd Progress Report of this year - students who achieved a Credit, Distinction or High Distinction in their University subject are also considered to have achieved an A.


 

Parents & Friends Association
The P&F is a friendly, easy-going group of mothers, fathers, friends and grandparents with one major thing in common - they all have a child/grandchild/family friend attending the Senior School. All are welcome to be a part of the P&F and they are always seeking new members to bring along different ideas and a fresh approach. The P&F is not a traditional 'primary school' P&F - they understand that everyone is busy and time-poor, so input by members is minimal. If attending group meetings is not your thing, you can simply add your name to the volunteer list and assist at events where possible. Your valuable time and generosity, no matter how much or how little, will always be greatly appreciated. The primary focus of the P&F is to organise social get-togethers with parents, grandparents and friends. Occasionally the group organises fund-raising activities such as a movie night or shopping night. Activities include:

  • Term 1 Welcome Drinks
  • Term 2 Mother's Day Mass
  • Term 3 Assumption College Kilmore Exchange (when SHC hosts) - provide assistance at various weekend activities
  • Term 3 Parents Farewell Drinks

The P&F meets once per term (usually in The Parlour) for an hour. For further information, please contact Ingrid McKay (Chairperson) imckay@internode.on.net.


Marist Mission
Special thanks to the students and families who supported the Marist Immersions movie night fundraiser on July 27 at Event Cinemas, Marion. The evening was very well attended and important funds were raised for Marist communities in India, Sri Lanka, Fiji and the Philippines. We also thank our community for their generous donations of clothing and bedding in support of St Vincent de Paul Society Winter Appeal. On Friday 10 August, student leaders from the Senior School will accompany students from Marymount and the Middle School to Walk a Mile in My Boots. The Hutt Street Centre initiative seeks to raise awareness for those who are homeless and marginalised in the city of Adelaide. On Wednesday 15 August, we celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary with a whole campus mass in the McAteer Centre. We will also be farewelling Monsignor Ian Dempsey who retires as the Brighton Parish Priest at the end of August. We look forward to seeing Grandfathers, Fathers, Uncles and Brothers at our Father's Day Mass in the Chapel at 9.00am on Wednesday 22 August. Please see the email invitation that was distributed by James Gill, Director of Marist Mission for RSVP information.


Stage 2 Trial Exams
These exams were held in the week commencing 2 July. Students were provided with the opportunity to experience exam conditions that replicated the final exams as much as possible. Invigilators were employed to monitor students during their exams and reported that the students' level of concentration and application to their assessment was impressive. Well done to all students involved in trial exam week!


Subject Selections for 2019
Subject selections for 2019 commence this week with meetings for Year 10 students conducted on Tuesday 31 July and an information evening held for their parents on Wednesday 1 August. Year 11 students and their families have their meetings next week. A reminder that the Curriculum Handbook 2019 is not available in printed format, but can be accessed via www.shc.sa.edu.au/senior/curriculum.
