Harmony day - Gleneagles Secondary College

Issue 5 29 March, 2019 www.gleneagles.vic.edu.au | Reema Boulevard, Endeavour Hills VIC 3802 | T: 9708 1319 | F: 9708 1324 HARMONY DAY Harmony Day encompasses all the defining factors of Australia. It is a day where we celebrate our differences, where we inspire inclusiveness, respect and belonging of all Australians, regardless of their cultural background, race, or gender. On Thursday 21 March Gleneagles Secondary College did just that. The SALT team was successful in organising a range of activities designed to engage students across all the year levels in celebration of Harmony Day. With a range of activities organised there was something for everybody, including a photo booth where students and teachers were able to snap a few photos while holding up flags of their countries.

A ‘welcome’ mural was also available for the bilingual Gleneagles community to share what ‘welcome’ is in their own languages. In addition, multiple performers, many of whom were students, were able to share their cultural dances, sing their hearts out and support their friends on stage!

Harmony Day not only acknowledges ethnic and cultural diversity, but it celebrates this diversity in the most positive and spectacular of ways. In an era of increasing dividedness, it has become a necessity for Australians to celebrate multiculturalism, because it is one of the most pivotal shaping factors of Australia. Harmony Day not only fosters solidarity and inclusiveness, but it teaches us to accept the differences of the people around us. At the end of the day, it is our differences that make us who we are; unique, independent individuals.

The SALT team set up a voting station where students voted for a $500 donation from the school towards the Southern Migrant and Refugee centre.

While wearing orange as a sign of social communication we raised $1597.50 from the Free Dress Gold Coin Donation, this money has been donated to State Schools Relief. Maya Ghassali | Yr 12 Student & SALT member

GLENEAGLES IS BECOMING A RESOURCESMART SCHOOL! In light of our recent efforts to reduce waste at Gleneagles, the College has made the commitment to become a ResourceSmart School. A waste audit conducted by students in 2018 found that the school sends approximately 50 cubic meters of waste to landfill each month, equivalent to approximately 68 kilograms of waste each day, 95% of which is recyclable or compostable. What is a ResourceSmart School? ResourceSmart Schools are a government initiative that helps our school embed sustainability into everything we do. We are aiming to reduce our resource use (like our plastic and food waste, electricity and waste water) plus support indigenous plants and animals.

This program will also help the school to save money by decreasing the amounts of waste that require external management.

  • Parents: What does this mean for you? As a college, we want to decrease the amount of landfill waste we produce yearly. As parents, you influence our ability to achieve this goal through the packaging and waste your child brings to school.
  • Plastic packaging in your child’s lunch should be kept to a minimum. A waste audit conducted in 2018 found that approximately 15% of the school’s landfill waste consists of soft plastics (such as chip packaging and clingwrap)
  • Opt for more sustainable options such as reusable lunch containers, beeswax wrapping or brown paper bags. These products can either be washed and reused, or repurposed into compost or worm farms
  • Soft plastics such as food packaging and plastic bags can be recycled in most Coles and Woolworths stores Parental and community involvement is vital to the success of this program. Small changes to the waste brought into the home will make massive changes to the sustainability of our environment. To learn more about wastes in the home, head to https://www.casey.vic.gov.au/what-you-can-put-your-bins. Alternatively, contact Julie Mullins at mullins.julie.e@edumail.vic.gov.au Students: What does this means for you? Students are expected to continue to follow College expectations by putting rubbish into the correct bins and picking up the waste around them. Any questions, queries or ideas can be forwarded to Ms Mullins or any members of the Environmental Leadership Team.

We will continue to update the school community on our progress and achievements throughout the year through assemblies, newsletter articles, Compass posts and on our website http://www.gleneagles.vic.edu.au/ Teisha Dopper | Senior Environmental Leader SELECT ENTRY ACCELERATED LEARNING (SEAL) PROGRAM Applications for entry into the 2020 Year 7 SEAL Program are currently being invited. An information night to outline this program is being held Wednesday 3 April at 7.00 pm. Applications will close 12 noon on Friday, 26 April, 2019 and testing for entry into the SEAL Program is scheduled for Saturday, 4 May 2019.

Please inform family members or friends who may be interested in this program that they may obtain the application form and further details through the College website. Kathie Toth | Assistant Principal MEDICAL ACTION PLANS ARE NOW OVERDUE As some of our students have medical conditions the school is required to have current Action Plans for each of these students and their condition/s. The Department of Education policy requires that Action Plans be completed by a medical practitioner annually.

If your child/ren’s action plans have expired our school requires that you provide us with a new Action Plan for the safety and appropriate care of your child/ren.

Harmony day - Gleneagles Secondary College

The following medical conditions require an Action Plan: Asthma Anaphylaxis Diabetes Hay Fever Allergy of any kind Your family GP will be able to provide you with an Action Plan, alternatively a blank form can be collected from Sick Bay/Student Services and taken to your GP for completion. For those families that have so far been unable to complete and hand in their child/ren’s Action Plans, the upcoming school holidays should provide ample time and opportunity to visit their GP and get these vital forms completed.

Debbie Collard | Administration YEAR 8 INTERSCHOOL BOYS TENNIS On Tuesday 19 March, six boys from year 8 went to the Casey Tennis Centre to compete in the Casey North Interschool Tennis competition. The team included Eric Qian (8E), Amir Ajrovski (8A), Jarell Santos (8B), Maksim Nikolic (8B) and Kai Xuan Tee (8E). The boys played a mixture of single and doubles matches against Doveton and Fountain Gate Secondary Colleges throughout the day. The team won a total of 11 sets against the two schools, and as a result progress to the Southern Metropolitan year 8 boys finals next term. Well done! Lucie Turner | Year 8 Team Leader YEAR 8 INTERSCHOOL VOLLEYBALL On Tuesday 19 March our year 8 volleyball teams took part in an interschool competition at the very impressive Casey Stadium.

Our girls finished 2nd and both teams showed wonderful team work, sportsmanship and maturity over the day through their participation. It was a great day out and the students represented Gleneagles very well and had a fun day competing.

YEAR 7 CAMP On Monday 18 March the first group of year 7 home groups set off to the Ace-Hi Ranch Camp in Cape Schanck for three days. We were very lucky with the weather over the first three days and experienced sunny blue skies with some very cloudy patches and mild evenings. Students participated in range of activities to both challenge themselves and to provide them with the opportunity to develop resilience all whilst making new friends. Despite their fears, students enthusiastically participated in rock climbing, archery, flying-fox, giant swing, mountain boarding and the initiatives course.

It was great to see the students happily working together as a team to achieve common goals and encouraging those who were a little more reluctant. On the first evening students experienced a night walk led by the camp supervisor and we walked several kilometres through the rolling hills down near the coast. On the second evening students were a little quieter so we arranged some small trivia activities and a movie to watch. On Wednesday we said farewell to group one and welcomed group two, who were led by my fellow Year 7 Team Leader Kellie Fallon and they were very keen to get stuck into the same activities.

Both groups were treated to a surprise visit by our Assistant Principal Andrew Barker and our Junior Sub-School Leader Sophie Sykes. While the second group was not so blessed with the weather they continued with the activities without complaint and a positive attitude. I’d like to compliment the students on their exemplary behaviour and thank the staff who volunteered to come on camp. The students had a wonderful time and made strong friendships and memories which will put them in good stead for the years to come at Gleneagles Secondary College.

MAKSIM EXCELS FOR GLENEAGLES AT CANOE CHAMPIONSHIPS On Sunday 17 March, Maksim Nikolic of 8B competed in four canoe discipline races at Nagambie Lake Regatta Centre. Maksim represented Gleneagles proudly at the championship event, which included whole teams of students from schools including MLC, Camberwell College, Girton College from Bendigo and Yarra Valley College. Maksim won three medals on the day: Marathon – single 3.7km Silver medal Marathon – double 3.7km Bronze medal Sprint – 200m Bronze medal The Year 8 team are very impressed with Maksim’s achievements and are very proud to have him represent the school at such a big event.

Well done Maksim!

Thanks to Maksim’s father Mr Zoran Nikolic for providing the above information and images. Sophie Sykes | Junior Sub-School Leader YEAR 10 COASTS EXCURSION On Friday 15 March the Year 10s travelled to Portsea on the Mornington Peninsula to complete field work for their Coastal and Marine Environment unit in Humanities. They investigated the following research question: How, and why, are the coast and marine environments of Portsea under threat and how are they being managed? Students were able to gain real world experience and link this to what they have been learning in the classroom by gathering evidence to use in their Common Assessment Task.

They examined the coastal environments of Portsea’s Front and Back beaches with a specific focus on natural processes occurring on the coastline, human activities impacting the coast and the effectiveness of management strategies that have been implemented. Of interest was the recent collapse of part of London Bridge so students were able to compare this with images before the collapse and suggest reasons why this may have occurred.

Students put their geographical skills into action on the day by completing a field sketch of London Bridge and testing whether there was longshore drift on the Front Beach by throwing oranges into the ocean. Students also investigated the impact of the dredging of Port Phillip Bay on the Portsea Front Beach and different ways this is being managed.

We were very lucky with the weather on the day and these perfect conditions allowed students to fully engage with the environment around them and appreciate the importance of protecting natural coastal environments.

Jade Stent | Humanities Domain Leader YEAR 7 INTERSCHOOL VOLLEYBALL On Wednesday 13 March we had 18 students head out to participate in the girls and boys Interschool Volleyball Competition. The students were enthusiastic and eager to learn more about the game from start to finish. The teams encouraged and watched each other play while also learning from watching other games going on around us. Both teams came out on top for the day and brought the flags home. Students will now progress through to the regional competition in Term 2. Well done to all students involved!

GRIP LEADERSHIP 2019 With the primary objective of exploring paths of successful and effective leadership, eight representatives of Gleneagles’ Student Activities Leadership Team joined more than 1000 young leaders in attending GRIP’s ‘Student Leadership Conference’ on Tuesday 12 March, 2019 at the Melbourne Convention Centre. Bringing a fresh, revitalising perspective to student leadership in its entirety, GRIP raised awareness of the vast opportunities students have in order to best serve their peers in this area, including discussions of what character traits make for a noteworthy leader.

Gleneagles has created an amazing school culture and SALT is gaining invaluable knowledge on the possible changes we can make in hope of shining light on the richness in both culture and character. From the day’s events, the SALT team have been inspired to spark greater change amongst our school community and hence, urge all students to challenge ideas, or put new ones forward by chatting to any student leader available to them. After all, leadership is about people and not position or power, it is the knowledge we wish to amplify in 2019 and the years ahead. Rowan Maher & Jeylan Cayhan | Yr 12 Students GIRLS IN STEM MORNING TEA AT CASEY TECH On Friday 8 March, students from years 9-12 attended a special morning tea at Casey Tech to celebrate International Women’s Day.

Eight students networked with students from other local schools and met women scientists and STEM professionals. The guest speaker was an eminent marine mammal researcher Dr Kate Charlton-Robb who discovered a new species of dolphin in our own Port Phillip Bay. She studies dolphin genetics and champions our oceans and marine mammals through her organisation Marine Mammals Foundation. After a morning tea, students had the opportunity to participate in a hands-on workshop in either genetics, robotics, engineering or VR design. Julie Mullins | Learning Specialist

Plan ahead to avoid long delays Melbourne and Victoria are growing fast. We’re building the Metro Tunnel and improving the public transport network so we can run more trains, more often. This will involve disruption to your journey so we’d like to help you plan ahead to avoid long delays. Here are some tips: – – If you can, avoid peak times and travel before 7am or after 9am.

Take advantage of the Early Bird fare. Touch on and off before 7.15am and your train travel is free. – – We expect other public transport services and roads to be busier than usual. Plan ahead and allow extra time. AFL fans should allow extra time to get to the MCG in April, with a number of train lines not running to Richmond Station. The free tram zone will be extended to the MCG for affected games. Plan ahead and allow more time if you’re attending a show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
