The Ormiston College social event of 2013 is not something we stage very often. Although I do recall losing count of the people who suggested we should, when all everyone could talk about for some weeks in 2008 was the spectacle that was our last Anniversary Ball.
Some events are worth waiting for, and after 25 years of OC community, growth, spirit and achievement we are aiming to ensure our 25th Anniversary Ball is really something special.
It will be an evening of glamor, entertainment, fine dining and dancing; a celebration of all that has been achieved by so many since the founding of our College in 1988 and the wonderful people who have comprised our community to this day.
Earlier this year we enjoyed the Grand Family Picnic and the opportunity to celebrate the College's 25th Birthday with the children of OC. However, the 25th Anniversary Ball will be a grown up affair.
Not a fundraiser, in fact quite the opposite, the Anniversary Ball is significantly sponsored by the College to ensure this red carpet event remains affordable and accessible to all who associate with OC and deserve to be part of this celebration.
Our Year Level Parent Representatives are doing a fantastic job of bringing our community together. Contact your Parent Representative, or the College, form a table of 10 or register and let us take care of the seating, dress formal, enjoy pre-Ball drinks, a 3 course dinner, an amazing ‘ballroom', fabulous company and a great night out.
We thank you for being a valued part of Ormiston College and look forward to you sharing in this distinctive event as we celebrate the occasion of Ormiston College's 25th Anniversary.
A reminder that the College enrolment policy states that should you wish to withdraw your son and/or daughter from the College, written notice must be received by the Headmaster at least one full school term before the departure date. If this notice is not received, full tuition fees must be paid for the proceeding term. An end of Term 3 departure requires notice to be given on or before Tuesday, 16 July.
Please contact me if you require further information or assistance.
As we arrive at the end of another Term, I would like to take this opportunity to remind parents of the due dates for payment of fees for 2013.
Due Dates for Payment of Fees are as follows
Term 3: 2 July 2013
Term 4: 24 September 2013
Statements were sent via email on 4 June, 2013. If you have not received your Statement, please contact the Accounts Department immediately. Overdue accounts may incur additional charges as per the 2013 Schedule of Fees and Conditions.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of the parents who have supported the College with their prompt payment.
ORMISTON COLLEGE 25th ANNIVERSARY BALL
I am sure you have placed your Flyer/Invitation to the 25th Anniversary Ball in a prominent place in your home. All College Families were mailed your Invitational Flyer and should have received it during the past week.
So the word is definitely out! The College will be in celebration mood on 24 August, so I hope you are there to participate in what will be a Wonderful Night!
Bookings are online via the College Website, through Try Booking. Quite a few people have already used the Site and have found it very quick and easy to book, pay for and print out tickets. The Site also gives the organisers information which we need, such as special dietary requirements.
Believing you may have a few questions about the Ball, I have produced an Information Sheet. Please click here to read it. Perhaps printing it will be a good idea; however you will be able to access it through Parent Lounge. Click on the date of the Ball and open the paperclip.
Are we looking forward to the Ball? Absolutely!
THE SENIOR FORMAL
The Year 12 Formal Committee and I have been very focussed on organising the 2013 Senior Formal, so that it will be a memorable night for the Graduating Class. This is the first of several major events between now and their Valedictory - Graduation Ceremony on Friday, 15 November.
Parents of Year 12 students will receive your invitation to the Parents' Hour during the holidays, but I have distributed the latest Memo with a Payment Envelope and Payment Slip which collects information we need about how many parents will be attending the Parents' Hour and also how many orders there will be for the 2013 Senior DVD. The DEADLINE for return of this Payment Slip to the Senior Office is Wednesday, 17 July 2013.
I know the excitement is building for the Senior Formal on 2 August and I look forward to seeing you at the Parents' Hour. This year we are going to try something new, by forming a parent "Guard of Honour" for the Year 12s to walk through, up the hill from Cellar Door which is the venue for Parents' Hour.
INFORMATION EVENING: UNDERSTANDING THE QUEENSLAND SYSTEM AT EXIT
Each year, the Dean of Studies and I offer Parents in Years 10, 11 and 12 an Information Evening to assist you to understand the processes by which the Queensland Studies Association (QSA) will generate a Student's Overall Position (O.P.). So, here is advance notice of the date of this year's evening: Thursday, 8 August. Venue and time will be advised next term.
Deputy to the Headmaster
TRIMESTER 2 FINALS
This weekend we will be playing against a variety of schools depending on where each of our teams finished on the ladder at the end of the home and away rounds. Teams that finished 1st and 2nd will play off to determine the Premiers. In all, our teams will compete in 15 Premiership playoffs. The Finals weekend will determine the ultimate place of each team on the ladder. While it is obviously exciting that 15 out of 29 teams may potentially finish on top of the table, the other fixtures played this weekend are equally important as they will determine third through to sixth place.
The Redbacks have been very consistent in Trimester 2 and are well placed to challenge for the mantle of Champion Trimester 2 School. I encourage all students to support the Redbacks in the last games of the season. I am sure that everyone will try their hardest this weekend and uphold the principles of good sportsmanship. Good luck to all our teams.
ATTITUDES AND PERCEPTIONS
Dimension One of the Dimensions of Learning Framework is called Attitudes and Perceptions. One of the reasons that Dimensions of Learning is such a robust teaching and learning framework is that it strongly recognises the pivotal role that good attitudes and perceptions play in successful teaching and learning outcomes. Our Years 9 - 12 students will be involved in events that will tap into the development of attitudes and perceptions in the first week of Term 3. No doubt the Year 9 and10 students will be inspired by Glenn Gerreyn from the Oxygen Factory as he presents his Hour of Power to the Year 9s and the Day of Hope to the Year 10s.
This year the Year 11 and 12 students will also attend the first presentations in a new biennial program to support our senior students. Glenn Gerreyn will present his Men of Honour presentation to our Year 11 and 12 boys and the Year 11 and 12 girls will attend a Peer Power seminar Beyond the Mascara.
HAIR CUTS AND COLOUR
As students embark on three weeks of holidays it is timely to remind everyone that hair must remain its natural colour. From time to time, some students think that they may be able to put a non-permanent colour in their hair at the start of the holidays and it will wash out for the start of Term 3. Unfortunately for the students concerned, such products do not wash out in a hurry so the one sure way to be compliant with the rule is to keep the colour out of the hair in the first place.
The College requirement for boy's hair is a conservative cut and the holidays provide an opportune time for boys to get a haircut for the start of Term Three.
REPORTING AND PARENT/TEACHER/STUDENT INTERVIEWS
As Semester One draws to an end, Profile Reports are being prepared and should arrive in the mail by the end of the first week of the June/July holidays. These Profile Reports will include grades and comments from all Subject Teachers as well as comments from Form Teachers.
Following these reports, Parent/Teacher/Student interviews will be offered to Years 8, 9 and 12 on the following dates:
Year 12 - Wednesday 24 July
Year 8 - Wednesday 31 July
Year 9 - Wednesday 21 August
Year 10 and 11 Parent/Teacher/Student interviews will occur in Term 4.
FAREWELL TO STAFF
As their Semester 1 contracts are now concluding I would like to extend my thanks to Julie Cass, Carol Hooper and Yuki King who have all made valuable contributions in the Senior School.
In addition, the LOTE Department will be without the services of Karyn Matthew who will be on Long Service Leave in Semester 2 and Ingrid Pride who will commence Maternity Leave. We wish Karyn a most enjoyable and well deserved break and extend our best wishes to Ingrid during this exciting time for her family.
Finally, Kirrily Littlefield, who was on Maternity Leave, has tendered her resignation. We thank Kirrily for her dedication to Ormiston College and the English and Drama Department over the past 2 years.
WHOLE SCHOOL PHOTO
On the first day of Term 3, a Whole School Photograph will be taken of all students and staff from Prep to Year 12. This photo is part of our 25th Year Celebration. The photo will be taken before morning tea and all Senior School students will require full school uniform. Please ensure all items of uniform, especially ties and blazers are in good repair for the first day of Term 3. Please check that your child's blazer has buttons, as the blazer needs to be buttoned up for the photo.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish the College Community a happy and safe holiday. It has been a busy and productive term which included the fabulous production of CATS. I look forward to the return of the students on Tuesday, 16 July.
Head of Senior School
There is never a dull moment in the Music Department and once again the Department has been a hive of activity.
OC EISTEDDFOD 2013
Once again in 2013, the Music Department will be running our internal Eisteddfod competition. This year's Eisteddfod will feature our Solo sections and provides an opportunity for ALL OC students to enter and be part of this longstanding OC event. The OC Eisteddfod sections and entry form can be downloaded via the link here. Entries close Friday, 21 June 2013. Please note that in 2013, there will be NO entry fee for the Eisteddfod.
Tonight at 7.00pm, the members of Kinder Chorus, Treble Clefs, Pochino Choir, OC Singers, OC Chorus, Concert Band, Flute Ensemble and Intermediate Jazz Ensemble will be presenting our traditional End of Semester 1 Concert in the Lingo Lin Theatre. The members of all Ensembles (except Kinder Chorus) need to arrive at 6:15pm and move to their warm up areas. Kinder Chorus members need to meet Miss Thomas in JAC at 6:40pm. The canteen will be open from 6.00pm for those who would like a bit to eat before the concert. The concert will start at 7.00pm and will be finished by 8:30pm. All families are reminded that all students attending the concert, both as performers and audience members need to be in full College uniform.
JAZZ BAND & SYMPHONIC BAND @ REDLANDS IGNITE FESTIVAL
The members of Jazz Band and Symphonic Band will also be performing publically this weekend as part of the Redlands Ignite Festival.
Jazz Band will be performing at the Jazz Concert on Friday evening, starting at 7.00pm in the Raby Bay Bandstand (next to Hogs Breath Café). The students will be presenting a 30 minute set and the evening continues with more great Jazz performances, including our very own Birds Apprentices.
Symphonic Band will be performing on Saturday afternoon from 4.00pm, outside Binary Music in Bloomfield Street, across from the Council Chambers. This afternoon performance will also feature art work by OC Visual Art students. Both concerts are free and a great opportunity for the whole family to come along and enjoy some of the finest musical performances on offer in the Redlands. I know you will join with me in wishing Ms Logan and the students all the very best for these performances.
JUNIOR SCHOOL CHOIR DAY
On Tuesday, 18 June, the members of Pochino Choir and OC Singers will be involved in a day long series of workshops as part of our annual Junior School Choir Day. Our guest conductor for 2013 is Mrs Julie Christiansen OAM, Founder and Artistic Director of Birralee Voices. This will be a very valuable day of singing and preparation for the Semester 2 performances coming up for both Ensembles. Further details regarding the day will be distributed to both choirs by Miss Thomas and Mrs Forster.
EXTERNAL EXAM SUCCESS
Over the semester, a number of our OC Music Tuition students sat external exams with bodies such as the AMEB and Trinity College London. Of the results we currently have on hand, I would like to acknowledge and congratulate the following students on their achievement:
Jarrod Fisher Trinity College Grade 1 - Guitar - Merit

MUSIC TUITION EXAM CERTIFICATES
Recently, the Year 2 to 12 students who are enrolled in the College's Music Tuition Program sat their Semester 1 exams. Over 100 of these students achieved an A or A+ on their exam. In recognition of this outstanding achievement, these students will be presented with an Honours Certificate to formally recognise this achievement. The Certificates will be presented by the student's Music Tutor prior to the end of this term. I would like to congratulate each of these students on achieving such a fine result.

Last Wednesday Year 6 students attended a Japanese drumming performance in the Theatre. This energetic and entertaining performance introduced students to a range of traditional Japanese musical instruments, including the taiko (drum) and the shakuhachi (bamboo flute). Audience participation was encouraged, with students (and staff) having an opportunity to play the different instruments and to ask questions at the end.
This annual performance at the College by the taiko drummer and the shakuhachi player is always very much enjoyed by students, as indicated by the following student comment:
"As I walked into the Theatre, I was already fascinated about the Japanese taiko and other instruments. It was also interesting listening to the history of each instrument. My favourite song was the Japanese nature song! It reminded me of the beautiful nature in the world. Also, I would like to learn more about Japan's traditions. The performance was truly amazing." (Kyle Psaila 6LDW)
As this is the final full newsletter for Semester One I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the staff and students to thank our parent community once again for the support given to OC. It is wonderful to see so many parents and Grandparents volunteering their time in classrooms, on excursions and at our vast array of music and cultural activities. It is really appreciated and makes for a wonderful partnership between home and school.
On a staffing note I would like to thank Mrs Carson for her work with Prep this semester. We welcome Mrs Herzig back from Long Service Leave next term. I would also like to wish Miss Psaltis and Mrs Jamieson all the best as they embark on some well-deserved Long Service Leave. Mrs Jamieson will return in Term Four and we welcome Mrs Papapavlou to 6SJ. Miss Psaltis will return in Jan 2014 and in her absence she will be replaced by Ms St Ledger.
We have a number of events still to come next week and in particular we look forward to our Years 4-7 Interhouse Athletics Competition on Monday. Let's hope we have fine weather! Special thanks to Mr Pincott and his team for the organisation of this event.
Yesterday a number of students competed at the Queensland International Chess Competition. Results will be announced next week. The Met East Comp Football Qualifying Match vs Birkdale SS was also played and we look forward to hearing the results from this match.
The students have been busy rehearsing for the Winter Concert which will be held tonight in the Lingo Lin Performing Arts Theatre from 7.00pm to 9.00pm. A big thank you to our wonderful music teachers for all they do in preparing our students for these events. I look forward to seeing you there.
Tomorrow the following teams will compete in TAS Grand Finals - Year 7 Hockey, Year 7 Rugby, Year 7B Netball. Good luck everyone!
The Symphonic Band will be performing at the Redlands Ignite Festival 2.00pm-4.00pm

Last week, Tuesday, 6 June, the Junior School team participated in the Regional Reader's Cup Challenge at Manly State School. The team included: Alexander Rudd, Cody Miller, Eryn Lowe and Maggie Greer.
The Reader's Cup challenges students to read widely, work collaboratively in a team and continue to develop a love of reading. The competition involves students reading a number of books and recalling events, facts and details from the text. This year the students read the following books:
- The Little Refugee - Anh Do
- Not Bad for a Bad Lad - Michael Morpurgo
- The Golden Door - Emily Rodda
- Parvana - Deborah Ellis
- Ghost Club #1 The New Kid - Deborah Abela
- Word Hunters: The Curious Dictionary - Nick Earls and Terry Whidborne
Over several weeks, the team met regularly to develop questions and explore the texts further. By far the most popular book amongst the group was ‘The Golden Door' by Emily Rodda, with many members of the group now reading the two sequels.
During the competition, the students had the privilege of listening to Terry Whiborne, illustrator of ‘Word Hunters', share his experience of becoming an illustrator and working in the world of books. The students were fine ambassadors of the school and participated well in the competition, receiving an overall placing of 5th out of 22 teams. The team are to be congratulated on their efforts throughout the term.
Head of Curriculum
The Health Centre continues to be a busy place and there is a constant stream of visitors being cared for with varying degrees of injury or illness. Many students and staff are attending for first aid care or so that they can have a comfortable place to rest until they can be collected from the College. The purpose built sick bay is located in the Junior Administration building.
The Health Centre is a place for students across all year levels to receive first aid treatment, medication and advice. Medication will only be administered to students as per the College policy. All medication must be labelled by a pharmacy or medical practitioner, and a consent form completed by the parent prior to administration. The College is unable to give herbal preparations at any time.
Some students have permission to carry their own medication (with approval), for example- ventolin, insulin, and EpiPens. There are guidelines for carrying some of these life-saving medications and an action plan should be made available to the College and carried with the student at all times.
First Aid kits are placed strategically throughout the College but students are encouraged to seek assistance from a staff member before accessing any first aid consumables. There are strategic places which also provide access to emergency medication and advice. The ‘RED BOXES' contain EpiPens, Ventolin, Glucose and diabetic carbohydrates, high visibility vest. The locations of these kits are:
• The Senior Administration Staff Room
• The Somerset Sports Centre - First Aid Room
• The Lingo Lin Performing Arts Theatre - Music Corridor
• The Junior Arts Centre (JAC)
• The Junior Administration Health Centre
There are additional First Aid kits in the Science labs, Swimming Pool, Sports Offices and in all the College Kitchens and facilities. There are two defibrillators on the College campus- one in the Junior Administration Health Centre and the other in the Somerset Sports Centre First Aid room.
As we approach the halfway mark on the College Calendar, I would like to take the opportunity to remind parents that the expiry dates on all medications need to be checked. Please confirm that all asthma inhalers, EpiPens, diabetic supplies and medications are current and functioning prior to the start of the new term.
Prescribed medication can only be given with a doctor's order and needs to be labelled to allow staff to administer it safely. Parents are required to fill in the Medication Administration and Consent Form.
Ormiston College employees who administer medication follow the Rights of Medication Administration by ensuring that they perform these checks:
• Right patient- use at least 2 identifiers (label, order and patient)
• Right medication- check the label and order
• Right dose- check the order or calculate dose as required (with nurse)
• Right route- check that the patient can receive the medication as requested
• Right time- check the frequency and confirm time of last dose
• Right documentation- documented record after dose is administered and any side effects and /or desired outcomes
Over the counter medication will be administered in the same manner and requires parental consent. Any request to administer medication must be accompanied by a labelled package by your pharmacist or medical practitioner. No herbal medication will be given at any time. Parents must advise the College of any allergies or previously administered doses.
If any of the above safety checks require clarification, a phone call to parents or guardians will be made. For your child's safety, please ensure that your daytime contact details are current and that the College has an emergency contact available. Parents can update details via Parent Lounge.
If you wish to discuss any Health Matters or First Aid needs please contact Catherine Wakefield (Registered Nurse) at the College Health Centre.
I would like to extend my best wishes to each of our students and families for the holidays. Enjoy your well-earned break!
Friday, 31 May saw our first community fundraiser run by the P & F Association. As many would agree The Cancer Council is a very worthy cause. Our guest speakers touched us with their personal stories, and thanks to the generous support from local businesses with raffle prizes, donations upon entry and percentage of sales from our stallholders, we raised a fantastic amount of just over $2200! Well done everyone, thank you!
Another small order of Tea towels have now been received, we still have a limited quantity of each group available if you wish to purchase your child's year at only $12 each. You can contact me anytime to arrange payment and collection.
It's time to collect and return your Woolworths Earn & Learn Points Sheets to the Junior Office Collection Box!!
As you know, our school has been participating in the Woolworths Earn & Learn program. The program has now finished for this year, so a big thanks to everyone who supported us. We're now at the important stage of the program where Points Sheets are collected and lodged as our Earn & Learn claim. We will then be able to get new educational equipment for our school. The more we collect, the more we can redeem. So this week please send in your Woolworths Earn & Learn Points Sheets and any loose Earn & Learn Points Stickers you may have. Remember to check your handbag, the car glove box or they may be stuck on the fridge. Every little bit helps. Thanks again for all your support!

As our students are gearing up for this year's Formal I thought that perhaps I'd send out an expression of interest for a Year 12 Parents Dinner.
This has become a bit of a tradition for parents to gather after seeing off our Year 12s at Sirromet. It is usually a very busy few hours leading up to drinks at Sirromet and if anyone is interested I would be happy to organise the dinner. If you are interested in joining us for dinner at a local restaurant and to get an indication of numbers, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. As we are all busy and perhaps don't always get a chance to read the Newsletter could you please forward this to other Year 12 parents. I look forward to hearing from you.
