As schooling in Australia reaches its halfway point for the 2014 school year, there has been significant interest in the Your School guide, which ranks Australia’s highest performing schools, i.e. the top echelon (or 1%) of schools, based on last year’s NAPLAN outcomes.
The Weekend Australian newspaper published the rankings last weekend, which saw Ormiston College named in the Top 8 of all Queensland secondary schools; 39th highest of co-educational schools in Australia, Number 3 in Queensland and the Number 1 co-educational secondary school in the Greater Brisbane area.
Wow! We warmly congratulate our students and teachers on the ambitious learning goals they aspire to and the hard work and subsequent gains being made in the essential learning areas of literacy and numeracy.
However, as you might expect, the OC end of term highlights extend beyond the academic. Last weekend the Redbacks also confirmed their status, for only the second time in history, as the TAS Sporting Association’s strongest Term 2 school.
The values of Excellence, Friendship and Respect that we see underpinning Junior and Senior School TAS sport are also visible in our 'mate vs mate' inter-house sporting competitions at the end of term, not to mention our many cultural events such as the recent Winter Concert where around 400 young people took to the stage in a celebration of the musical learning that has occurred during the year so far.
It is fair to say that first semester has been a very positive one for OC. Our trademark spirit and commitment to academic and co-curricular pursuits has been complemented by a new building and new student courtyard, new staffing structures which reduce the size of our sub-schools, and who could forget all the fun and success of the 2014 College Carnival.
We thank all families for their association with the College and remain both mindful and grateful for the integral role parents play in their children’s success across a school semester.
We look forward to next term when our work in partnership continues, knowing that with your backing, the College is very well positioned to remain one of Australia’s most positive and productive school communities.
What a busy and productive term it has been here at Ormiston College. The last few weeks have seen many exciting events occur which included the fantastic Winter Concert, Junior School Track and Field and Prep Buccaneers Ball. This week also saw the Secondary School successfully achieve overall Champion School for TAS sport again so congratulations and well done to all Students, Staff, Coaches and Managers who worked hard to make Term 2 sport the successful season it was. It really is amazing to watch our College community come together each weekend to battle it out against our rival TAS schools.
Term 2 concludes today with the Secondary School battling it out in their houses for who will win the Inter-House Athletics Carnival, best of luck to all involved in what will likely influence the outcome of who wins the House Cup. I would like to take this opportunity to pass on my best wishes to staff members Peter Ioannidis, Margaret-Anne Hunt, Eli Gilfedder and the 27 students who are departing for Greece and the Greek Islands this evening. I am sure that they will have an amazing time, share many cultural experiences and maybe even eat a few gyros (kebabs) along the way. I look forward to hearing the stories and seeing the photos from the trip when they return safely.
As you would know the Dimensions of Learning Framework underpins the College’s approach to teaching and learning across the campus. You may be aware that Dimension 1 relates to developing positive attitudes and perceptions with Dimension 5 relating to Habits of Mind which are productive mental habits. Both Dimensions 1 and 5 contribute to creating a positive mindset and productive backdrop for learning at the College. During the first week back, Glen Gerreyn from the Oxygen Factory will visit the College for our Year 9 students to complete an ‘Hour of Power’ presentation and our Year 10 students a ‘Day of Hope’ presentation which will positively support the development of Dimension 1 and 5 thinking for these students.
Events worth highlighting when we return in Term 3 include the POPS Trivia night on Saturday 26 July so get your team together for an action filled night of Musical based trivia! The College also has a range of Eisteddfods starting from Sunday 27 July where our students will be showcasing their home grown talent to our College community. Finally, I’d like to thank our families, students and staff for what has been a great term. I hope you all have a safe and relaxing holiday and look forward to when we return for Term 3. Best wishes.
A reminder that the College Enrolment Policy states that should you wish to withdraw your child/children 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. Notice for an end of Term 3 departure is due on Tuesday 22 July.
Please contact me if you require further information or assistance.

TAS FINALS SUCCESS
Congratulations to the Term 2 Redbacks who enjoyed record breaking results in the Finals round last weekend. In addition to an amazing 11 Premierships, what was most satisfying was the consistency of all our teams. So many teams finished in the top three and the big improvers were definitely Netball and Boy’s Tennis. The overall results ensured the Redbacks easily defended their title of Champion TAS School for Term 2 sport.
Well done to all the players, managers, coaches and particularly the coordinators, Mrs Geldenhuys (Netball), Mrs Gilmour (Tennis), Ms Pangrazio (Hockey) and Mr Peterman (Rugby).
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 Year 12 on Thursday 31 July. Please note that this is during the second week of Term 3 to enable Year 12 students to respond early in the term to any feedback they receive as they progress toward their final assessment pieces in Senior Studies. Parents will be able to secure bookings through Parent Lounge from Thursday 24 July.
Years 10 and 11 Parent/Teacher/Student interviews will be held in Term 4 on Wednesday 15 October for Year 10 and Tuesday 21 October for Year 11.
This week the Formal information has been updated on Parent Zone and the College App. The latest letter provides information about the early departure time for students on the day of the Formal, Parent Hour, parking and payment requirements. If you are unable to access this letter or have any questions, please contact Mrs Louise Peters on 3821 8924.
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 3.
My best wishes are extended to the 27 students and Mr Ioannidis, Mrs Hunt and Mr Gilfedder who have just embarked on a three week tour of Greece. In addition, I would like to wish Mr Jarrett all the best for Term 3 as he enjoys some well-earned long service leave.
I take this opportunity to wish the College community a happy and safe holiday. It has been a busy and productive term and I look forward to the return of the students on Tuesday, 22 July.

Engineering and Technology Careers Evening – Wednesday 23 July 2014
All high school students, parents and teachers are invited to attend the event to hear from recent Engineering and ICT graduates and learn about their experiences in the industry so far. The event will also include the opportunity to talk to academic staff and current students about programs available and discover why UQ provides students with the best foundation for a career in Engineering and ICT.
I would like to thank staff for their continued professionalism and dedication and for providing students opportunities to 'Seek to Achieve' academically, culturally and in sporting pursuits.
Thanks to all staff and parents involved in Term 2 Sports and Cultural activities. Your support has allowed our students opportunities to strengthen their sense of belonging within the Ormiston College community.
Congratulations to all students who took part in the many activities offered in our extensive co-curricular program in Term 2! Students have taken great pride in their achievements and have developed a greater sense of belonging.
Our co-curricular program has encouraged the development of friendships, enhanced intellectual awareness, improved academic performance, an appreciation of different perspectives, and closer interaction with staff members who genuinely care about your children!
Last Thursday night at the Winter Music Concert we were fortunate enough to see the progress that our Music Ensembles have made since the start of the year. Many hours of practice have been put in by all performers and the positive outcomes were seen by all who attended. Congratulations to our stars on stage for making the night a success. Thank you to all Music staff for your passion that you bring to the Music program.
Last Saturday the TAS (The Associated Schools) Term 2 Finals were held at various venues around Brisbane. Ormiston College won a record 11 premierships on the day. A proud Mr Cudmore announced that there were record seasons for Hockey (90% strike rate), Boys Tennis (73%) and Netball (65%).
Middle School students performed magnificently. The following teams tasted Premiership success:
Year 7 Rugby, Year 8 Rugby, Year 7 Tennis (Greater Brisbane Conference), Year 8 Tennis, Year 8 Hockey, Year 7B Netball, Year 8B Netball.
A big thank you to the individual Sport Coordinators for your organisation, time and energy and to the dedicated staff members who coached or managed a team. Your passion and commitment were evident throughout the season. Thank you parents for your continued support and for ensuring our sporting stars get to the venues around Brisbane on a weekly basis.
Semester One Reports
During the school holidays, you will receive a Semester One Report about your child’s level of achievement and progress made during the first two terms of this year.
Please note that the Semester One Report provides feedback on subject academic results, attitude, effort and organisation. I encourage you to take the time to sit with your child and discuss the report. It is a perfect time for students to reflect on their successes and set goals for Semester Two.
Character Builders - The Great Race
On Tuesday, all Year 8 students, Year 8 Form Teachers and selected staff members took part in their final Getting Along activity which was designed to foster positive relationships within the Year 8 cohort.
Students initially took part in a one-hour presentation by an external company, Character Builders which focuses on resilience, persistence and getting along.
Following this presentation, The Great Race took place. This activity involved all students working in teams and building positive relationships with their peers and staff members.
The Great Race was a fun team experience that required each student to work with their peers to complete a number of challenges around the school. Character Builders facilitated each station challenge and encouraged students to problem solve, collaborate and persist. Staff members from the Science and English Department joined in the fun, which heightened the involvement of students.
Thank you to Year 8 Coordinator, Mrs Annette McArthur, for organising this event and to all Form Teachers for your continued support for our young adolescents.
Year 1 Visit
On Tuesday afternoon Year 9 students had the opportunity to work with their Year 1 buddies showcasing their Science projects. Apart from sharing their knowledge of science, it was a chance to interact and share their passion of this discipline with these budding scientists. A fantastic time was had by all involved. Thank you to Mr Henville, Mr Parsons and Ms Window for making this event happen.
As we head towards the holiday period and a haircut is needed, please keep in mind the College’s hair policy.
The diary clearly states that ‘Students’ hair must remain its natural colour and be worn in a neat conservative style without hair product.
"Girls’ hair longer than shoulder length when tied back must be plaited neatly in a single plait."
Bobby pins are used to pin back 'wispy' hair, plaits start where the hair is tied back.
"Boys’ hair is to be neatly brushed or combed…and not shorter than a number 3 clipper."
"Hair swept across the forehead that would be longer than the position of the eyebrows will need to be cut."
Not adhering to these expectations will incur an infringement.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all families for your continued support so far this year. On behalf of all staff, have a happy and safe holiday and I look forward to a rewarding and challenging Term 3!

It is our final week of what has been a very busy and rewarding term in so many ways. I would sincerely like to thank all of our parents and grandparents who have enthusiastically supported us throughout Semester One. It is really appreciated.
It has been lovely throughout the term to receive such positive feedback from parents about our staff and I also thank our amazing team for another wonderful semester.
The Winter Concert was fabulous and I am sure the students really enjoyed showing off their talent. Thank you again to all of our staff involved in this event and to our parents for attending.

Miss Hickey held a Pochino movie night last Friday which the children enjoyed immensely.
Our first Debating Team have made it to the next round. Thank you Miss Jarvis for coaching the team.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish Mr Iconomidis all the best for his Long Service Leave. We will welcome back Mr Saxby next term. We also thank Mrs Helm and Mrs Scott for the work they have done this term in taking over from Mrs Mc Dermott and Mr Elliott while they have been on Long Service Leave. Finally, I would like to thank Jessica Reid for her contribution to the College in her time here as College Nurse. Her work has been greatly appreciated by all of us.
I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday and I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday 22 July.

Last Thursday evening, over 300 students crossed the Lingo Lin stage and performed in our annual Winter Concert. The evening featured performances from students from Year 1 through to Year 12. Many of our Ensembles presented their first public performance for 2014 and impressed their audience with the quality and consistency of their performances throughout the evening. Congratulations to the students who performed and to the Ensemble Directors for their hard work preparing each group. Thank you to all of the families who attended the concert and to the parents who manned the Music Support Group canteen before the start of the concert. This concert once again demonstrated the strength of our younger Ensembles and I am looking forward to the quality of the work they will present in Semester Two.
AMEB Theory Results
At a recent Middle School Assembly, two of our AMEB Group Theory students received High Distinction certificates for their Grade Two Exam. Both Kali Roche and Chiara Gay are to be congratulated on this outstanding achievement, in such a short space of time. Both girls have already commenced work on their Grade Three Exams for October.
At Headmaster’s Assembly last week, the 2014 Choir and String Captains were presented to the Headmaster and received their badges. Our 2014 String Captains are Sarah Wildner and Beau Rush. Our 2014 Choir Captains are Amy Harper and Alys Holmes. The four young leaders have made a significant contribution to the College’s Music Department for many years and I congratulate them on their appointment to these roles for 2014.
At a recent Middle School Assembly, our Concert Band leaders for 2014 were presented to Mr Makridakis and received their badges. Congratulations to Xavier Bradford and Alice Brookes. This two young musicians provide a strong role model for the members of Concert Band and will be excellent leaders for this group throughout the year.
The end of Semester One, sees a number of our Junior School students conclude their time as leaders of Pochino Choir or OC Singers. These students have taken on the responsibility of leadership with energy and have had a very successful semester in their roles. As one of their final tasks in their roles, these students introduced the performances of our Junior School Choirs and Pianissimo Percussion at the Winter Concert. These fine young leaders are:
Captains: Rachael Taylor and Alice Durham
Vice-Captains: Sophie Winslade and Ari Bampton
Captains: Georgia Greggs and Tiani Spiteri
Vice-Captains: Emma Franken and Eva Morris
Music Tuition Enrolments
Opportunities are available next semester for additional students to join our Music Tuition Program. The OC Music Tuition Program provides expert tuition from our dedicated staff who cater to the needs of our individual students. It is never too late to start and even if you’ve never learnt an instrument before, the Music Tuition team are able to help you get started.
Successive scientific studies have confirmed the immense benefit that learning a musical instrument has on young minds. It improves cognition, develops literacy and numeracy skills, refines fine and gross motor skills, improves reading skills, promotes multiple ways of knowing, enhances creativity and students who study a musical instrument on average achieve strong academic results than those who don’t. In addition, the social and friendship bonds and memories Music students create in our Ensembles, performances, on tours or camps will last them a lifetime, long after they leave OC.
Music Tuition places are available on most instruments and should your child be interested in learning Tuba, Euphonium, Bassoon, Bass Clarinet and Oboe, the College can provide an instrument to use free of charge, for at least the first 12 months of Tuition, subject to demand.
If your child would like to enrol in the Music Tuition Program and start learning an instrument, please download, complete and return the Music Tuition Enrolment Form which is available on the Music Page of the Parent Zone. If you have any questions about the Music Tuition Program, please contact myself or Sonya Dewar via email@example.com
A very important note was posted to Parent Zone and the College App this week, in addition to being emailed home to those families involved. In week 2 and 3 of next term, the following Ensembles will be competing in the Redlands Eisteddfod:
• Chamber Singers
• Redback Chorus
• OC Chorus
• Jazz Band
• Symphonic Band
• Concert Band
• Beginner String Ensemble
• Sonata Strings
• Pochino Choir
• OC Singers
• Brass Ensemble
• Flute Ensemble
The note includes all of the logistical details and performance information. If your child is a member of these Ensembles and you have yet to download this note, could you please do so at your earliest convenience and confirm the dates in your family diary. We have increased our presence in the Ensemble section of the Redlands Eisteddfod in 2014 and will be showcasing the strength of the OC Music Program across Choral, Strings and Band.
If you anticipate any issues with your child being unavailable for their scheduled Eisteddfod performance, could you please contact your child’s Ensemble Director as soon as possible.
Year 5 Immersion
All is prepared for the Year 5 Immersion Program to commence at the very start of Term 3. There will be a compulsory information evening for all Year 5 students and their parents on Monday 21 July, starting at 7.00pm in the Lingo Lin Performing Arts Theatre. At this meeting, all students and their families will meet our Immersion teaching team and complete important paperwork regarding the use of the College’s instruments. Lessons will then commence on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons in Week 1. It is very important that all Year 5 families attend, to ensure your child is able to take their instrument home after their first lesson.
If you have any questions regarding the Year 5 Immersion Program, please do not hesitate to contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org
The College’s annual Open Day is coming up towards the start of Term 3 on Saturday 16 August. All of the College’s Ensembles will be expected to perform as part of Open Day and as one of the most important College events of the year, all students need to ensure they are available to perform. The final performance schedule will be distributed at the very start of Term 3.
In conclusion, I would like to wish all of our OC Music students and their families a safe and relaxing holiday break. The department has achieved a great deal in Semester One and the stage is now set for a very successful Semester Two as we work towards Singing for your Supper, String Soiree, Gala and Speech Night.

ONLINE ORDERING and SENIOR STUDENTS ID CARD
The online Tuckshop ordering system is working extremely well, with lots of students embracing the new system. The volunteers are loving the easy serving and the scanning system, and the students with ID cards that have been recharged, appreciate the express queue for the first 10 minutes of lunch. There is no waiting in line and they can usually get what they want. I would encourage more students to get on board and use the system. Whilst there is a small fee to pay to recharge the card, it far out ways the security of having your child carry cash and risk losing it. It also saves time in the queue allowing more time for them to enjoy their precious lunch break.
Click here to access the mystudentaccount and set up your family’s account. Alternatively visit the College App and click on the Tuckshop button to go directly to My Student Account.
Please click on the Tuckshop Roster link below to see where help is needed, and telephone the Tuckshop Convenor, Janelle Reid on 3821 8928 if you can spare some time to help out, or help at some future time. Alternatively please email Janelle at email@example.com. Thank you – any spare time you can donate would be extremely helpful, particularly for 2014, as help is short and new volunteers are urgently needed.
