MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

New School Council Chair

Father Rod Bower has led our School Board and School Council for the last five years. Bishop Peter has now asked Fr Rod to join the Samaritans Board. Samaritans is our Diocese’ social justice and welfare agency. I am very grateful to Fr Rod for his wise and effective leadership over these five years. He has chaired our Board and Council thoughtfully and with due diligence given to all of its decision-making. We pray God’s blessing on his continued ministry in the Gosford Parish, in his role as Archdeacon of the Central Coast and his new role with the Samaritans. Our new School Council Chair is Assistant Bishop Charlie Murry, who assumed this role after last Tuesday’s Council meeting. We welcome Bishop Charlie and the experience he brings to our school.


Years 3-6 Family Service at Lakes Anglican   

Thank you to all the families who came to this service. It was great to see the students up the front reading the Bible and praying, and the choirs singing. The congregation gets a real boost when our families join them for a service so your support is much appreciated by me and by the church.


Careers Expo  

Our own school Careers Expo was held today. I thank our Careers Adviser, Mr Campbell, for all the work he put into preparing the day. It included a number of job skills workshops as well as the expo with many organisations exhibiting. The Try-a-Skill Day for Year 10 on Thursday was a new opportunity for our students, which was taken up by quite a few of them. This was a great way for students to have a go at a trade or other type of skill they might like to investigate more.


Big thanks to our wonderful P&F

At its meeting last week our P&F agreed to donate just on $40,000 to fulfil a number of requests from our staff. This is additional to the $35,000 already committed to provide equipment for our new STEM centres that are being constructed. The new items approved are:

  • A digital sound mixing console for the hall. This will provide much better mixing capabilities for musicals and Showcase and be used every week at assemblies and chapels.
  • A set of musical instruments to be kept in the hall for performances, assemblies, graduation, Speech Day, etc. This will be a big help the Senior School Music Faculty and will reduce wear and tear on instruments that we currently have to haul up to hall.
  • Additional home readers for the Junior School.
  • Portable LED lighting units for use in drama productions, musicals and other special events.
  • New portable goal posts for the Senior School oval.
  • A shade structure over the seating on the SS oval.
  • An interactive wireless projector to be trialled in the Senior School.
  • Improved plantings in the Junior School car park – planter boxes and new trees.


The P&F still has other money in the bank and we will certainly find other very helpful ways to use it to improve the school’s facilities. Thank you to all who contribute to the P&F fundraising ventures throughout the year.


Breaking News: Debating

Our Senior School Debating team yesterday won the HICES Preliminary Final against Arndell Anglican College. Now they are off to the Semi-Finals. Thank you to Mrs Stibbard for her coaching of the team.

The Primary team beat William Clarke College yesterday in the Elimination Final. Next they debate Central Coast Grammar School (who beat us in the Grand Final last year!) in the Preliminary Final early next term. Thank you to Mrs Holland for her coaching of this team.

CHAPLAIN'S CHAT

MESSAGE FROM MATT

For the last few years I have been teaching Year 7 Christian Studies classes and before that I was on Year 5 for the same subject. Since Pete has been here he has taken on Year 5 and for both of us it is a real joy to spend time in the classroom discussing some of life’s big issues and thinking about faith.  At the moment Year 7 are analysing the movie adaptation by Disney of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe written by C.S. Lewis. We do this so that Year 7 can be aware that allegory as a literary tool is used extensively in the Bible, but also in mainstream literature and theatre. It does help that it was also my favourite book series as a kid.


Last year I had the privilege of seeing the house in Belfast where C. S. Lewis grew up and the school he attended as a boy.  I have shown the students how his boyhood school looks just like Hogwarts and that his family used to take holidays on the northern coastline of Northern Ireland.  It was here that I was able to check out Dunluce Castle ruins which legend has it was the inspiration for Cair Paravel, the castle in the Narnia series.  If you’re a golfer, it’s only a few kilometres to the east of the world famous Royal Portrush Golf Club.  The allegorical nature of the Narnia story had its roots back in CS Lewis’ boyhood and the overflow of his lived out faith life as an Oxford University scholar.


As we watch the movie together and the students answer some set questions you can see them having various “A-ha!” moments as they see the story within the story.  To understand how allegory works will help them understand Jesus’ parables, Shakespeare, movies, songs, poetry, art and so much more.  Narnia is a fantastic way for them as students to reflect on the story of Jesus that is tucked away in the adventures of 4 children in a magical wardrobe.  Who knows what other treasures our students might uncover as their eyes are opened to the wonderful world of allegory.

Dunluce Castle ruins in Northern Ireland…… the inspiration perhaps for C. S. Lewis’ Cair Paravel Castle in the Narnia series.

 

Bless ya!

P&F NEWS

It's hard to believe it's the end of Term 2 already! With the help and support of the Lakes Grammar parent volunteers and supporters, the P&F have held a number of successful fundraisers, with money going to a number of exciting projects to support and enhance student learning. 

The Welcome Disco in Term 1 was enjoyed by many students, raising $1894, while our always popular Easter Raffle raised $2788!

Earlier this term, we had some wonderful Dads volunteering at the Mothers’ Day Breakfast, handing out roses and selling raffle tickets, with the Mothers’ Day Stall and Raffle raising $1372. Our final Fundraiser for the term was the Lamington Drive, raising $1500!


None of these fundraising events would be successful without the support of our dedicated P&F executive team, members and volunteers, as well as supporters from the Lakes Grammar community.


The school and students benefit greatly from the funds raised, and we look forward to letting you know about the exciting projects we are contributing to next term.


Have a safe and restful break, and we'll see you in Term 3!

Year 6 Camp - Canberra

Welcome back to Year 6 who enjoyed their annual camp in Canberra. It was a great pleasure to spend some time with the students in this beautiful environment and to see them challenging themselves with their learning across a variety of venues, visiting Parliament House, Questacon, the AIS and Old Parliament House, to name but a few. I extend my thanks to the students for the way they embraced the opportunity and to Mrs Livette, Ms Bennet, Ms Abrams, Mr Price, Pete and Mr Summers for giving of their own time to ensure the children had a memorable week away.


The camp provided students with a wonderful opportunity to participate in a variety of educational programs with a focus on Australia’s history, culture, heritage and democracy. The Australian Government recognises the importance of all young Australians being able to visit the national capital as part of their Civics and Citizenship education. To assist families in meeting the cost of the excursion the Australian Government is contributing funding of $20 per student under the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate program towards the cost of the camp. The rebate is paid directly to the school upon completion of the excursion.


Over four action-packed days, our Year 6 students impressed us with their wonderful behaviour and eagerness to learn. They laughed, explored, investigated and made new friends, as they toured our nation’s capital together. From our bus driver’s crazy ‘dad jokes’, to making string bracelets on the bus, using Preferential Voting to discover our favourite fruit and laughing with our Swedish tour guide in Parliament House … a great time was had by all!


Anne Livette-Vial, Ashley Bennet, Jo Abrams, Peter Oates, Danny Summers, Bob Price


Some quotes from Year 6 students:


Leaving home as my chilled fingers grasped onto Mum’s warm hands at 6.00am, I saw my friends running towards me with the biggest grins, and I knew this was going to be the best trip ever.
Kathryn C


As I held on tightly to the bar at the top of the Big Drop, panic flowed through me and I convinced myself to let go. Suzannah B


On the first freezing cold night in Canberra, we went to the crazy, fun Questacon where the slide was steep, the skulls were huge and the robot was super skilled at air hockey. Austin M


Black Mountain Tower: As I stepped out into the cold night sky, the beautiful view over Canberra caught my eye, and I wondered how much better this trip could get? Bethany and I stood in awe and I craned my neck to look at this magnificent tower. Suzannah A


At Parliament House, we found out there were 2700 clocks, with their main purpose being to let the members know that a vote was about to happen for either the Senate or the House of Representatives. Ellena M


As I walked into the AIS, my brain exploded, and I hoped that I could train here one day!  
Lachlan J


GeoScience: Sixty-four excited feet jumped on the floor, perfectly in time, hoping to make an impressive earthquake. Isobel W


Laser Tag: I dashed around the corner, before the enemy could see me in the dim maze of Laser Tag, and I wondered if I would win this time. Anugraha B


On Thursday night at Laser Tag, everyone had a lot of fun and all the old arcade games were free. Liam W


As I rushed around the walls, with the enemy hiding in every corner, I saw blinking lights from all the players and I wondered; is this my teammate? Kayla W


Overall Canberra was a great camp, giving us lots of time with our friends and a chance to learn a lot about Australian history. Aidan M


What an amazing trip it was, from start to end! We went to Parliament House, War Memorial, Questacon and AIS – it was really fun! Jamie S

It is great to recognise the achievement and involvement of these students in all areas of our school life. I commend them for the high standard that they have achieved and for ‘having a go’ at the different opportunities on offer in our Junior School.


Tess M, Blake N, Richmond T, Kaleah B, August K, Cheyanne R, Addyson H, Elijah A, Karina J, Declan J, Chelsea C, Mackenzie A, Clover H, Mia K, Alexander H, Lexi R, Nicholas B, Mikaela L, Miranda F, Harrison W, Olyver H, Zoe V, Christopher W, Paige L, Clair W, Casper H, Dexter R, Kenzie M, Lena E, Sam C, Ravi F, Hayley O, Illyssa R, Tom L, Liam M, Caitlin G, Tahlia R, Tyler H, Matthew C, Kayla W, Alyssa D, Harrison C.

Peer Support

We are excited to be implementing the Peer Support program at Lakes Grammar in the Junior School again next term. I would like to thank Ms Elisa LeRay for her efforts in conducting the Peer Support program at the school.


The Peer Support Program:

* empowers our students to support each other and contribute positively to society

* provides students with a supportive learning environment in which to develop the skills, understandings, attitudes and strategies to improve their mental, social and emotional wellbeing

* develops key skills in resilience, assertiveness, decision making, problem solving and leadership

* utilises a whole school approach to support positive cultural change and

* provides authentic leadership opportunities for Peer Leaders.


Our Year 6 students undertook two training days in Peer Support Leadership at Camp Toukley this week.

We will conduct Peer Support sessions for 30 minutes each Friday afternoon in Term 3. Students will work in groups of 12 with a pair of students in each group from Kindergarten to Year 5, led by Year 6 students.

The Peer Support program has five modules that the students work through. The students participate in one module each year. The topic area that we are looking at this year is ‘Optimism – living positively’.


Bowel Cancer Fundraiser

June is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, and a highlight of this campaign is Red Apple Day.

Noah and Giselle Simon in Year 6 and Year 4 have done some fundraising and awareness raising towards this cause over the past two weeks.

To support Red Apple Day, the Junior School held a "Schoolyard Crunch" on Wednesday 20th June. The students enjoyed bringing in an apple on the day for fruit break so that we, as a school community, were able to raise awareness and support the message of Bowel Cancer Australia.

Bowel Cancer Awareness Ribbons were also available to purchase this week for $2.00 during recess and lunch - Noah and Giselle did a great job selling ribbons over the fortnight as part of their Bowel Cancer fundraiser.

Thank you to all of our students and families for supporting this fundraiser and most importantly for helping to raise awareness for Bowel Cancer.

Building Learning Power

We are continuing to work on our Building Learning Power program in classrooms. The diagram below shows the four areas of our ‘Building Learning Power’ program (Reach Out, Look Within, Think Clearly and Believe in Ourselves) which link in with our school motto ‘With Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength’.


A number of learning actions which are associated with each area are listed around the outside of the circle.

Lakes Grammar Habits

The Junior School utilises the learning framework of Lakes Grammar Habits to effectively integrate our Building Learning Power, Positive Behavior for Learning and Virtues programs.

* Building Learning Power develops the capacity of students for learning, their curiosity, craftsmanship, creativity and collaboration.

* The Virtues program develops children’s Christian values, moral harmony and moral integrity, including kindness, honesty, trustworthiness, service, empathy and moral courage.

* Positive Behaviour for Learning develops our student self-regulation and self-awareness to demonstrate respect, responsibility and care for themselves and others.

The Junior School collectively focuses on a Habit each week drawn from one of the three programs whilst concurrently working with students to develop a range of habits and capacities in the day to day life of the school.

Next week, we will be focusing on the following concept. The Habits are also recorded in the Student Diary for each week:

CLASS 3B

In English Year 3 have been studying the book ‘Lost’ by Stephanie Owen Reeder.

It is a true tale of three children who got lost in the bush in 1864.  It tells of their struggles and ultimate survival after walking for 9 days over nearly 100km.


Part of our study of the book has been to look at life in the 1800s.  One of our most enjoyable and delectable studies was 1800’s food, so we made damper.  Our damper came out crusty on the outside and soft and warm on the inside, mmmmmm. Here we are enjoying an inside picnic with damper, loads of butter, lashings of golden syrup or honey.  Some even came back for seconds and thirds!

Here is the recipe if you would like to make your own at home this winter.


damper

ingredients

3 cups SR flour

Pinch of salt

80g butter – cubes and chilled

3/4cup water


METHOD

  • Step 1
  • Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Step 2
  • Add the water to the flour mixture and use a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion to mix until the mixture just comes together, adding 1-2 tablespoons extra water if the mixture is a little dry. Use your hands to bring the mixture together.
  • Step 3
  • Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Shape into an 18cm disc and place on tray. Use a sharp knife that has been dipped in flour to mark 8 wedges on top. Dust the damper with a little extra flour and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the damper is cooked through and sounds hollow when tapped on the base. Transfer to a wire rack for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature

Bill Turner Cup

 

Friday, 8 June our under 15’s boys team took on St. Eddy’s in the round 3 match.  With only 4 schools still left on the coast we knew it would be a tough match.  At the half-time whistle it was nil all with both sides missing opportunities and being denied by excellent saves from the keepers.  Filled with confidence our boys were rocked by 2 quick goals from some excellent St. Eddy’s strikes early in the second half.  Our boys dug deep into their reserves of grit and scored late in the second half.  They continued to press hard right until the final whistle but no second goal was forthcoming with multiple quality saves by their keeper.  Despite losing, I assured the boys that they had played the best game of the Bill Turner Cup that I have had the privilege of watching.  They have been a joy to coach and have been absolute sportsmen.  Well done lads…you have been great ambassadors for our school.
