PRINCIPAL’S ADDRESS

Dear Parents and Carers,
It is my pleasure to announce the Student Leaders for 2018-2019:

Captains:                  Lachlan Espulso & Lucy Glass
Vice-Captains:         Thomas Miller & Jade Dundas

House Captains:

BUTHU:                     Madison McGovern & Lucinda Cullen
DIRUM:                     Lachlan Armstrong & Lachlan Cain
KONDARI:                 Lydia White & Ben Barker
NARWARI:                Lucy O’Neil & Will Clayton

Ministry Group Captains:

Praise & Worship:      Courtney Williams & Piper Hinton
College Life:               Natalie Quattromani & Bronte Everett
Justice & Action:        Kyesha Feste & Mollie Anderson
Arts & Culture:           Tory-Lea Fox & Keely Blenheim

It is an honour to celebrate the spirit of leadership at Xavier Catholic College with these fine young people.  I have great confidence in these young women and men and have no doubt they will serve the College with distinction.  Already they have made a name for themselves as dedicated students and positive role models.  I hope at their graduation next year they will look back to this time and the commitments they have made with pride in a job well done.

I use the phrase “the spirit of leadership” with great intent.  For that is what I believe it to be: a “spirit”.  It is not something that resides in the position.  Leadership is not something one holds simply by holding a title:  be it Captain or Principal.  These are powerful words, but they are not synonymous with leadership.  Leadership is truly a spirit.  It is a spirit that exists throughout our community.  It exists in every student and teacher, every school officer, every parent and friend to this College.  Leadership is not something to be exercised or controlled through the power of the position.  Leadership is something to be unleashed.  The student leaders’ task is clear: not to control, but to liberate; to unleash the spirit of leadership at Xavier Catholic College.

I offer to them my full support and promise to walk the journey with them. 

God bless
Simon Dash
Principal

HEADS OF SCHOOL ADDRESS
As the term draws to a close and with the onset of some chilly weather, we know that it will still be very busy in our classrooms with many assessments being finalised. Please ensure your children are focussed and giving their assessment tasks the attention they deserve.

2018/2019 Student Leaders
The end of term is also the first step in the formation program for our College leaders. On Thursday 28th and Friday 29th June our newly appointed leaders will spend two days at Camp Pialba gaining an understanding of what it means to be a leader in an Ignatian school. We also invite our current student leaders to this Retreat to share their experience.

External Review Process
Last week we hosted visitors involved with the External Review process, which will provide input towards Xavier’s five-year plan.  Our visitors met with staff, parents and students, and toured our classrooms during their three-day visit.

We thank all of those involved in this process and will advise the outcome of the review in due course.

Bullying Survey for Secondary Students
Last week students in years 8 to 12 were asked to complete an online survey to investigate the issue of bullying across the College. We began with a discussion about what bullying is, the various forms bullying can take and where to seek help if needed. Students then completed the survey in class, with teacher support if requested. 

Year 7 students will complete the survey before the end of term.  The results will be collated and reviewed by the Pastoral Care Team and any follow up needed will be undertaken by them.

School Officer’s Day
Last Wednesday, 13th June, we celebrated School Officer Day as part of an international day of recognition – International Education Support Staff Day.  

This international celebration is the result of the endorsement of a resolution at the 2015 Education International (EI) World Congress to create a worldwide day recognising the significant contribution School Officers make to the quality education in our schools.  The day is also a time to acknowledge the important role of Services Staff in our school communities.

Our wonderful School Officers were presented with a small gift and morning tea and were acknowledged at both Primary and Secondary Assemblies, for their invaluable contribution.

THE READERS CUP
 
Xavier Catholic College was privileged to host the annual Wide Bay Readers Cup last Tuesday. Our school has a proud tradition in Readers Cup, with both our teams having achieved some excellent results in the past at both regional and state level. This year, our year 5/6 team won their division beating 29 teams from across the Wide Bay. They have now achieved this … four years in a row! Our year 7/8 team came second, narrowly missing out on an opportunity to qualify for the State final in September. We wish our year 5/6 team all the best as they prepare for their state final in Brisbane in September. Good luck!

What is it?
Readers Cup is organised by the Queensland Branch of the Children's Book Council of Australia. It is a state-wide competition for young readers. Teams of four students together read a set of books, and then compete with other school or public library teams to answer quiz questions from the books.

 
Why do it?
Readers Cup competitions challenge students to read widely, work collaboratively in a team and continue developing a love of reading. It allows readers to compete at a regional and state level similar to sporting competitions and to meet other students with a shared passion for books.

WORK EXPERIENCE

We encourage year 11 and 12 students to pursue work experience in career areas of interest. Students can do a maximum of 30 days’ work experience in any one year. This is an excellent opportunity to gain insight into an industry of interest, to either affirm or discard potential future career pathways. Work experience is not compulsory for year 11 and 12, but highly recommended. Preferably, work experience would occur during school breaks.

The following extract is from the Foundation for Young Australians’:

While virtually every child is asked, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’, only 6% of adults end up in the careers they wanted when they were younger. Instead of training for a particular occupation and working in that area for life, some studies have estimated that Australians will make 17 changes in employers across 5 different careers.  Compounding the uncertainty is the reality that many jobs of the future don’t exist today.

When it comes to identifying possible future career pathways, we encourage students to consider their interests, abilities and motivations. Work experience provides an excellent opportunity for successful post-school transitioning. We encourage students to find their own work experience as this provides them with the opportunity to develop personal and communication skills. However, if a student requires additional support, we can assist them to organise a placement. Please take time to sit with your child and look at the Careers and VET page on the school portal. If you have any questions regarding work experience contact John Donnelly at jdonnelly@bne.catholic.edu.au.

Xavier Sporting Teams
Xavier wishes all the very best of luck to both the CONFRO and QISSN teams competing in the 1st week of the holidays at their respective rugby league and netball competitions. I’m sure all your hard work will pay off and you’ll be rewarded with a rich and memorable experience on your tours. 

Along with these teams, our Xavier Oztag, Touch and Basketball teams have all been training strongly this term at the weekly morning training sessions. The QLD All Schools Oz Tag competition will be held from Friday 27th July to Sunday 29th July. The Sunny Coast All Schools Touch Football competition is being held on Sunday 29th July. An information letter has been sent home with students. The Fraser Coast Interschool basketball competition will begin in Term 3. Good luck to all our students representing the College in their respective teams.

Xavier Supporter Shirt
A reminder to parents and extended family members, that you are welcome to purchase a Xavier Supporter Shirt to wear to interschool events and support our students representing the College in extra-curricular competitions, including those interschool events that are not sport-based. These shirts are available for purchase via the Qkr app for $44.

Oztag news
Xavier Oztag has grown in strength with 5 teams representing the school at the Fraser Coast Oztag High Schools Challenge this year. Our representative teams were:

Year 7/8 boys
Year 8/9 girls
Year 9/10 boys
Year 10 girls
Open mixed team

The competition played in Maryborough was against other schools in the Hervey Bay and Maryborough district. Our students’ behaviour both on and off the field was exemplary. Every Xavier team gave their all in each game played, with 4 of our 5 teams making it to grand finals. Unfortunately, the Opens went down by 2 tries in their grand final, but the year 7/8 boys were victorious winning theirs. The year 8/9 girls and the year 10 girls both made it to the top of their respective pools and had to play each other in the grand final. The younger team can hold their heads high as they only went down by 2 to the more experienced year 10 girls team. All in all, 5 teams, 4 grand finals and 2 wins made it a very successful tournament for our Xavier Oztag teams. 

Well done to all students involved!  We look forward to our next round of competition at the QLD Oztag All Schools event on the 27th- 29th July.

U12 Wide Bay Boys Basketball
Congratulations to both Toby Railz and Larry Smith for representing Wide Bay Basketball at the recent State Championships held in Cairns. Xavier’s basketball future looks bright with the talented boys and girls coming through the lower year levels. Great work boys!

CONFRATERNITY RUGBY LEAGUE

On Saturday June 30th, the Xavier College Open Rugby League Team will depart for Charters Towers for the 2018 Confraternity Tour. The Confraternity Carnival draws together 48 rugby league sides from Catholic and Independent Schools from throughout Queensland.  2018 will be Xavier's 10th Confraternity Tour. This year the carnival is being hosted by Columba College, and matches will be played at Columba's campus in 'The Towers'.  Xavier will field a squad of 20, welcoming 5 students from St Mary's Kingaroy.  The side has a strong core of committed and enthusiastic players that will represent Xavier extremely well throughout the carnival.  The side has been training well early on Tuesday mornings, and as a result the players have developed the skills and structure to enable them to be a force at the Confraternity Carnival.  We thank Miss Angela Hogan (Manager) and Mr Mark Lowe (Trainer and FAO) for giving up their time to attend the tour and help to make it a memorable experience for the players.  Below is a brief profile on each of the players in the 2018 squad, and I'm sure you will join with me in wishing them all the best for their upcoming tour.

Confro Team 2018.JPG
 


First NameProfile
1Jaxon CrockfordJaxon is a welcome addition to the Confro squad in 2018.  Possessing a lethal combination of size, speed and skill, he is dependable under the high ball and can slice open the defence when chiming into the backline. In recent games he has found his voice at the back, barking instructions to the team and ensuring they make their defensive assignments. A key player.
2Tristan SandersTristan joins us from St Mary's, Kingaroy, and like all good wingers possesses speed and athleticism. He can be relied upon to lock up one sideline in defence, and brings Confro experience having played in 2017.
3Matthew GearyMatthew also joins us from Kingaroy and is another returning in 2018. Geary adds size and speed to the backline, and will often be seen taking a run in the ruck to give the forwards a rest.  A great team man, he has blended in seamlessly to our matches and we look forward to Matthew taking on a leadership role within the team in 2018. 
4Casey Russell Returning for his second Confro tour. Evasiveness and speed are words usually associated with outside backs, and Casey boasts these qualities in spades. His swerve and step make him very difficult for defences to handle and he can get the team on a roll with one run. Casey's experience across many age groups, including a-grade, means he can read a game better than anyone.
5Lachie SmithLachie is a gifted athlete with a skill set broader than any.  His swift footwork will be an asset returning kicks and supporting ball runners, while his terrific handling skills will be vital in diffusing attacking kicks. His AFL pedigree makes him a target for attaching cross-kicks, and his high endurance allows him to make the hard yards when defences are fatigued. The perfect player for the role of custodian at the back.
6Lachie ArmstrongAs five-eighth Lachie has plenty on his plate, but seems to handle it all with a minimum of fuss. Chopping down big opposition forwards one moment, piercing a tiny gap the next. His toughness and league pedigree makes him the quintessential Confro player, and a player every coach wants on their roster. Will play big minutes, but will give 110% for every one of them.
7Patrick HoultThe second half of our rookie halves pairing, Patrick made a huge impression in his Xavier debut. Lightning-quick feet matched with silky smooth ball skills makes him a real X-factor for Xavier in 2018. Will be perfectly placed to use his speed as the opposition starts to tire, and it's clear he will be a real game-breaker during the tour.
8Hayden BoneyOnly the fourth player to play in 3 Confro carnivals for Xavier, Hayden is an uncomplicated player that leaves nothing in the locker. His fearless charges into the opposition defence inspire those around him to lift their efforts, and his defensive efforts are every bit as tough as his runs. A proud representative of his hometown Cherbourg, Hayden has matured into a determined young man and we welcome him back for his 3rd tour.
9Griffin LoweGriff touches the ball more than any player in the squad so his influence on our game is huge.  Luckily for us he has a presence on the field that demands effort from his troops while providing them with encouragement and support. Topping tackle counts is the norm, but subtle talents like slowing the speed of the play the ball and making the right tactical calls are where his real impact lies.  Played the most minutes of all in 2017, and will to do again in 2018.
10Isaac MielczarekMelky is no doubt seen as the enforcer for the team and the one to lead our forwards throughout the carnival.  Another playing in his 3rd carnival, for a big man he plays big minutes. If fired up, will do his talking through his game and take it to the next level.  One of our leadership group for good reason and knows, and models, the attitude and effort required to make it to the top.
11Zac DurstonZac is everything you want in a prop/2nd row.  Tough, hard, and dependable, he is exceptionally hard to put on the ground and racks up a huge amount of post contact metres. A player who is always there to support his mates both on and off the field, Zac is an integral part of the squad and will be looked at to lead by example in 2018.
12Conor DoughertyWhat Conor lacks in size he more than makes up for with tenacity and heart. He can fly under the radar at times, however his fellow players and coach know that Conor's work ethic and attitude provide us with a real advantage in our pack.  His progress from raw talent to genuine starting second row has been great to watch, and it is possible we could see even greater things in Chartres Towers.
13Will Kluck (C)A real player's player, Will is a tackle and run machine.  His ability to make a number of tackles in defence and then back it up with multiple runs in attack requires plenty of courage and heart. His passion for the game is matched only by his ability to foster team spirit. Klucky has unfinished business at Confro, and will get his opportunity to lead his boys as Captain of the side.
14Brad GoodluckBrad has been a revelation since joining Xavier this year. He has fought hard to earn his spot, and is now repaying the faith.  Each game seems to be a step up, which is no easy task for a youngster in the heavy mid-field exchanges. A versatile utility capable of playing back row or backline, Brad will be an integral part of Xavier Confro for a number or years to come.
15Lachlan GrumleyLachlan's story has come as somewhat of an inspiration to Xavier rugby league this year. His unwavering commitment to his goal of getting to Confro has meant many hours of effort, but his willingness to grab opportunities when they arise has seen him reach milestones both on and off the field. Brings as much to the squad as any other player and will be ready whenever called into action.
16Jeremiah DonnellyJeremiah is an adaptable impact player whose enthusiasm plays a crucial role when he is inserted into games. Keen to play wherever and whenever, he is guaranteed to lift spirits whether in camp or on the paddock. Another who has come a long way in a short period of time, Miah has an uncanny knack for sniffing out a try or can be relied upon to provide quality back up to the forward pack.
17Brayden AndersonAnother to have impressed on his Xavier debut, Brayden is a big, strong lad who runs hard, straight, and usually over the opposition defence. Forming a good combination with Patrick in the halves, Brayden's rugby league experience and his line-running ability could see him finish Confro with a bag full or tries. Whether off the bench or starting, he will play a key role in our overall result.
18Jaiden DavisJaiden is another powerhouse that brings a wealth of experience to the side on his debut Confro tour.  He uses his size to advantage, busting tackles to make big post-contact metres, but also having the awareness to look for offloads and second phase play.  He is a dominant defender who can wrap up forwards one-on-one, particularly when defending our goal line. Big things expected. 
19Brock ShepherdLike all good outside backs Brock possesses speed and athleticism. Always looking to finish off a backline move and will no doubt end the carnival with a bagful of tries to his name.  Will always answer the coaches call at any time in any position. Another of our Yr 10's with a big Confro future.
20Jayden CarpenterA versatile addition to the squad, Jayden has earned his spot through dedication and commitment. With a terrific passing game and great tackling technique, Jayden is often used as a replacement hooker however is just at home anywhere in the backline. With loads of potential Jayden is widely regarded as a player to lead the Confro squad in years to come.
CoachMr Tony McQuaidMr McQuaid has put the squad through its paces from the start of the season, will be coaching at Confraternity for the 9th time. As well as coaching, has spent many hours planning and organising the trip and using his hidden talent of designing, to create the uniforms for the tour. There is nothing he wouldn't do for his team and the boys love their Quaidy.
Assistant CoachJake LundAttending his 3rd Confro tour, Jake is an example of the experience that Confro provides.  Jake played in Rockhampton in 2016, however injuries have prevented him playing in 2017 & 2018.  Rather than miss the opportunity, Jake has played an invaluable role as assistant coach, organising session warm ups and providing support for the squad. Has the utmost respect amongst the squad and our tour will be better for having him involved again. 
ManagerMiss Angela HoganMiss Hogan will leave no stone unturned to ensure the tour runs smoothly and the players have a memorable tour experience.  Many hours have been spent preparing behind the scenes and that is before the bus is even boarded. With a long history in rugby league, Angela's role also includes assisting with the formation of the boys throughout the trip. 
TrainerMr Mark LoweMark brings years of rugby league knowledge to the coaching staff.  He plays a pivotal role in providing individual player feedback, as well as running messages and water to the players during matches. Usually has a long line outside his room each morning for strapping, his extensive experience is an asset to the 2018 side.
 

FROM THE CAMPUS MINISTER

International Refugee Day
World Refugee Day is held every year on June 20th.  Here at Xavier the two charities that we promote and support this term, Jesuit Refugee Services and Jesuit Social Services, work directly with those who are seeking asylum and assist in the resettlement process.  We celebrate and commemorate the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees and stand in solidarity with those who flee or are being persecuted in life. 

Last week under the guidance of our College student leadership team, some of our students and staff in years 7 – 12 stood in silence for the entire first lunch break.  It was incredibly powerful to be a part of this and it became very obvious that the feelings of those who are silenced, ignored and forgotten are often out of sight so out of mind.  I was overcome with emotions as we stood there whilst students played, laughed and engaged in their regular lunch time rituals.   

Some of our younger students took action on Thursday by sitting down throughout their first break, giving up the opportunity to play and enjoy the freedom that is offered to us here in Australia.  These students once more discussed the feelings of those who could not live a full life and shared what they had at their disposal such as a safe place to live, a warm bed, an education and food to eat.  

Thank you to all who were able to take part in both of these events and to the Social Justice and Action team led by Mrs Dani Wright.

“These small things do not free people from detention, close Manus Island and Nauru as overseas prisons, nor change the minds of the majority of Australians who believe that we should punish asylum seekers in order to stop the boats. But in doing these things we dig the small channels that, when the season changes and the rain comes, will irrigate the parched fields.”   Andrew Hamilton SJ
