CHURCHLANDS ROCKS THE


POOL IN 2015

Churchlands has once again taken


out honours in the 2015 A Grade
Swimming Carnival, making it ten out
of the last eleven years

Shenton College was always very close behind on the


leader board and beavering hard in our slip stream.
Our relays paved the way for a meritorious victory
onthe day.
With the new inclusion of Year 7 students into the
school, our swim squad was awesome in size and
looked extremely professional in their blue and white
school bathers.

A team breakfast and a motivational talk by ex


Olympian swimmer and Churchlands student,
Neil Brooks, really set the scene for a very
competitiveday.
With the Year 8 students as a support crew, the
atmosphere at HBF Stadium was electric, especially
in the team events where Churchlands dominated.
The success of the day was due to the great
efforts of the swim squad, the support staff and
the spectators. A very big thank you to Head
Swimming Coach Pauline Pratt and to the whole PE
Department who were involved in four swimming
carnivals prior to this monumental effort.

From

The Principal
Welcome to the first newsletter of 2015
In particular I would extend a special welcome to
the families new to Churchlands SHS in 2015. We
estimate almost 900 new students to the school this
year and can now say that Churchlands is the biggest
and the best school in Western Australia. Along with
new students and new families to our community we
also welcome fifty new teachers. Among these new
teachers are twenty one graduate teachers who we
will work with to ensure they become fully registered
by the end of 2016.
Although Term 1 this year is only nine weeks long it is
an incredibly hectic period for the school. A number
of unfinished programs resulting from our population
expansion needed attention. These included an
incomplete new dance room, air-conditioning issues
to new buildings and a slowdown in the installation
of new student lockers. On top of this the schools ITC
network was compromised by a virus imported from
a student laptop which took most of the first month
toresolve.
However not all the news was disappointing! This
term we have seen our wonderful swimmers complete
year carnivals at school with a number of record
breaking performances. We also had a number of
students in the Rottnest swim with one of our Year 11
students completing the solo swim in just under six
hours. To cap this off Churchlands again won the A
Grade swimming carnival. This is our tenth victory
in the past eleven years continuing Churchlands
dominance in swimming over the past fifty years.
A number of Parent information nights have been
held already this year. These include Year 11 parents
information on Elevate Study Skills Program, Year 12
Parent ATAR information night and an information
night titled Social Media What parents need
toknow.
On the curriculum front we have completed one on
one counselling sessions for every Year 12 student.
Anexternal consultant, Ms Sally Topley meets with
every ATAR student to assist in goal setting and
planning to achieve success while Ms Clare Slodecki
undertakes a similar role with non-University bound
students. In the week commencing March 6, Year
10 and 11 students who had yet to meet minimum
requirements sat OLNA (Online Literacy and Numeracy
Assessment)testing.

I am sure that many of you are aware that the state


government is funding a significant building program
due for completion at the end of 2017. I am pleased
that the architects responsible for our recent new
buildings, Bateman Architects, have been awarded the
contract for almost $40 million worth of extensions.
We now commence working closely with this group
to develop a plan to take Churchlands forward as our
student population continues to grow.
I would like to congratulate the community
mindedness of the P&C, and in particular outgoing
president Ross Elliot. Events from last year such as
the Quiz night and the Good2Grow event will be built
on into the future. I have also received hugely positive
comments from parents about the welcome parents
sundowner held on Friday, February 6. The P&C AGM
held on February 9 also attracted the largest ever
number of parents to a P&C meeting at Churchlands
SHS. Recently we held our Year 7 followed by Year
8 family barbeques which were again extremely
wellattended.
Finally I would take this opportunity to acknowledge
the work of my administration team who have
transitioned a school of 1500 to almost 2300 students
without missing a beat. Associate Principals Mr Bernie
Dunn, Ms Karena Wilson and Mr Paul Housley along
with Deputy Principal Ms Deb Hoy have ensured that
not only are all structures in place but they have also
managed day to day situations as they arose in a
caring and professional manner.
In this they have been admirably supported by the
untiring work of Program Coordinators Mr Adrian Lee,
Ms Kim Hudson and Mr Dave Tomlin. Add to this the
amazing work done by our Office Ladies means that
I am extremely fortunate to have such outstanding
resources to support the schools leadership.

Junior School
Term 1 has been an exceptionally busy
one with a wide range of activities
occurring in Junior School including
camps, sports carnivals, Academic
Extension excursions as well as the
day to day school work, homework
and tests
The camps in particular were fantastic and this gave
a great opportunity for students to meet new people
and make new friends. We conducted eight camps
throughout Week 3 and Week 6 and the behaviour of
the students was exceptional.
The Year 7 and 8 students have settled into the high
school environment very quickly and the vast majority
have really enjoyed all the great things a large school
can offer. The students have displayed very good
behaviour, engagement in class and in most cases an
excellent work ethic. These crucial behaviours are the
key building blocks students must develop so they can
achieve their personal best. Despite the Year 7 and 8
intake being so large, the transition from primary to
high school has been a very smooth one. A big thank
you to all parents and students for your efforts in
ensuring this success.
HOUSE POINTS UPDATE
We are in the process of electing our House Captains
and Student Councillors for this year and these should
be announced late in Term 1 or early Term 2.
Below is the current situation with the House
Competition including the recent year level

In Term 2 we will begin a range of House activities


which will be organised by the House Captains and
all the points build towards the overall House Trophy
winner which is announced at the end of 2015.
NO HAT! NO PLAY!
This has been introduced for Year 7 and 8s this year
and, despite staff having to constantly remind students
to put their hats on at recess and lunch, has been a
very successful and appropriate initiative.

Foreign Affairs, The Hon Julie Bishop, MHR, addressed
the function.

Mr Hunt took them on a tour of the new building

Report
YEAR 7s... ITS ONLY JUST BEGUN!
Its hard to believe its nearly the end of the Term 1 already and
the Year 7s are now well and truly adjusted to their new life at
Churchlands S.H.S. Our new Year 7s have made an excellent
start to the year with most using their diaries to stay organised
and keep up to date with their homework.
We have also had some fantastic experiences with the 7s
including attending the Perth Writers Festival, the Swimming
Carnival and the popular Year 7 Camp.
In week three Year 7 English AEP students were taken to the
University of WA to participate in the schools program for
the Perth Writers Festival. This was a fantastic opportunity for
students to meet authors first hand and ask them questions
about the writing process. This experience was particularly
rewarding as AEP students will be reading a fantasy novel by
Kate Forsyth this term and she was one of the featured authors.
Students were enthralled to hear how she was inspired to write
her Impossible Quest series, and couldnt wait to get the book.
Our students were a credit to the school, asking the authors
some very insightful questions.
The Year 7 Swimming Carnival was held on Tuesday the 24th
of February. It was a hot day, but it was great to see so much
enthusiasm from the Year 7s to participate. The results were

Year 7 camp at Point Peron took place throughout week 6,


with each House staying two days and one night. The camp
was jam packed full of lots of fun activities like kayaking, rock
climbing, beach games and making movies. The weather was
perfect and students showed great enthusiasm for all of the
organised activities. An added treat was a visit by a few local
dolphins, they came in so close to shore we could almost reach
out and touch them. The camp was a perfect opportunity for
students to make new friends and get to know each other
through a series of team building activities. Id like to thank all
teachers and students for making the camp such a wonderful,
positiveexperience.

Meet an Olympic Champ
Our school was fortunate to be chosen to host a
Meet an Olympic Champ session organised by
the Australian Olympic Committee. The initiative
is aimed at year 9 and 10 students across the
country to spread the Australian Olympic Teams
a.s.p.i.r.e. values; namely attitude, sportsmanship,
pride, respect, individual responsibility and
expressyourself.
Students from Shenton College, Duncraig SHS
and Churchlands SHSs swimming and football
programs, as well as our state sporting team
representatives were invited to attend our fantastic
venue, the Concert Hall on Wednesday 4th
March. The Mayor and local newspaper were
also in attendance. Students were privileged to be
introduced to four Olympians: current Kookaburras
hockey player and 2012 London bronze medallist
Matthew Swan, 2008 Beijing rower Natalie Bale,
Sydney 2000 gold medallist in sailing Belinda
Stowell and former student 2008 Beijing Olympic
gymnast Olivia Vivian.
Students (and teachers!) were in awe as Olympians
shared personal stories about the highs and
lows of their sporting careers while stressing
the positive impact of sport on their lives. Visual
media, questions from the audience and autograph
signing also featured during the session. One lucky student

Hospitality
The Year 12 Hospitality
students are off to a bubbling
start this year
After learning the basic precision cuts, and
not losing too many fingers, they have
produced a number of delicious dishes
including Canapes, Caesar Salad, Eggs
Florentine and Lamb Koftas with Raita.
They also made a delightful Thai Chicken
Noodle Salad which they sold to staff for
lunches. There were many compliments
from staff and even requests for the recipe!

Eggs Florentine by
Katelyn Thomson
and Mary Rogers

There has also been a morning tea and


breakfast which they have already
cateredfor.
The coffee machine is also now up and
running with the students eager to make
the perfect espresso. We will be starting a
staff morning Coffee Club next term, (they
still need more practice!), where coffee
can be purchased before school four days
aweek.
With many more scrumptious dishes to
be made and entertaining guest speakers
planned, the students are in for a busy
eventful year.

Visiting Geologist gives

students a taste for rocks


Sandologist shared his passion
for rocks, surfing, and outdoors
with the Year 11 Earth and
Environmental Science students,
Tues 24 February
A passion for the outdoors gave Noel the drive to
graduate from Curtin University with a Bachelor
of Applied Science (Geology). Noel then embarked
on an exciting career, from hydro-geologist in the
goldfields developing water supplies, to alluvial
diamonds in the Kimberly, then the Pilbara to
work in an iron ore mine; before heading to Zambia
and experiencing a very different world of copper
and emeralds. Noel returned to Australia with his
stories of the Pilbara where he mapped, drilled
and explored.
Noel thrilled the students with stories of gun
toting para-militaries and black market diamonds,
while weaving in the story of observational
geology with many rock samples that were
passed around, thrown, scratched and even tasted
by the students!

Izaac Masters and James Wayte get a hands on feel of rocks.


Noel Youngman in the background

Many of the students have indicated that they


are interested in Geology as a career said Roger
Harris, Earth and Environmental Science Teacher.
Having someone like Noel come in and share
is vital to maintain their vision and motivate
theirstudies.
James Matthews, Earth and Environmental
Science Teacher, explained that Noels visit
corresponded with the Year 11 curriculum, where
the students were identifying and classifying rocks
and minerals.

Matthew Grindrod, James Wayte, Kellen Starkie, Noel Townsend and


Izaac Masters with Noel Youngman (Geologist and self-proclaimed)

Students are currently studying rocks and


minerals. Noels hands on overview of
observational geology was perfect consolidation
of what students are doing in class.
As one student commented;
I didnt think rocks were that interesting, but
know I am considering a career as a Geologist!

Sundowner

A surprise email from Amanda DSouza


(nee Carter) who graduated 1990, came
with an offer to put some names to the
photos from the 1980s photo collection

The P&C kicked the year off


by hosting a Sundowner with
Principal Neil Hunt for all parents
and staff

Combined with the archive specific photo albums that


were purchased with a grant from the P&C, there are
now eight photo albums available for reflection or amuse
past students at future reunions. Thanks to Amanda for
providing a huge amount of her time on our collection, her
efforts are greatly appreciated.
Amanda also has a Facebook page and can be contacted
on mokes24@gmail.com
Any old photos or articles of clothing are most welcome.
Please contact me at jherd@churchlands.wa.edu.au

It was a balmy Friday evening at the end of the


first school week and with 250 people attending
it was a great way to start the year.
The Sundowner was hosted in front of the
new Year 7/8 building which was opened up to
allow parents to look around and see the great
newfacilities.
These events are a great opportunity for
parents to have the opportunity to meet other
parents as well as the Churchlands staff in a
relaxed environment. Given the success of this
first Sundowner there will no doubt be others
further down the track. We will make sure we
remember the camera next time too!
Other great opportunities that are coming up
to socialise (and also get involved with helping
if you like) are the Community Art Show (6-7th
June), Quiz Night (31st July) and Good2Grow
(5th September).
We look forward to meeting more new parents
at these events.

Writerss Festival
Perth Writers's Festival Schools Day
Students in the Academic Extension program in
English attended the School's Day of the Perth
Writers Festival at The University of Western
Australia in February. Each year group attended
three seminars where they listened intently to writers
as they answered questions about their craft and
their works. In the breaks they watched comedy
acts, worked to create illustrations, had books
signed and generally soaked up the atmosphere of
the festival precinct at the university. The Year 7
students will study the novel of one of the writers
and were very motivated by the representation.
Theday was such a success that the students are
keen to attend next year's festival event,

Visual and Performing Arts


The start to 2015 has seen some
changes in the Visual and Performing
Arts Department
We welcome four new teachers to our subject areas, Ms
Mollie McPhail, Dance and Drama, Mr Daniel Njegich,
Media and Photography, Ms Paije Flynn, Drama
and Ms Heather Vandenrydt, Art. The students will
certainly benefit from the experience and knowledge
that these talented teachers bring to our learning area.
The department will be opening our doors to parents,
students and staff in a variety of new ways this year.
Photography and Art have started after school clubs
for students and staff to explore ideas and develop
skills. 2015 also plays host to the inaugural Junior and
Middle School Visual and Performing Arts exhibitions
and performances with a cross section of student
course work. The annual Drama production has its run
from the 30th of April to the 2th of May in Term 2. The
39 Steps, is a riotous stage production adapted by
Patrick Barlow. Dates and ticketing information for all
events will be advertised on the website when details
are finalised this term.

Summer School

Year 12 ATAR Visual Arts students have been working


on a Summer School project which had them take a
narrative painting and re-make it in a variety of ways.
This allowed them to explore elements and principles of
art as well as alternative meanings and ideas presented
within the work.
Year 12 non-ATAR students have taken the old
reproduction prints that have faded and were destined
for the rubbish, and repainted them with their own
imagery and interpretations. Some have cranked the
colour or have added new symbols and objects, others
have re-created a whole new work. These images will
re-appear on the walls of the English classrooms in the
next few weeks.
Other Visual Arts
classes have
established new
projects in clay,
drawing, painting
and printing which
will appear in the
Gallery later in
thesemester.

Foods
The Year 8 students are enjoying
working in the new food room
The room has all the latest technology including
Induction hotplates. This latest cooking equipment uses
a magnetic and electric combination which speeds
up cooking, is smokeless, environment friendly and
pollution free.
The challenge for the Year 8 cooking students has been
to produce a healthy snack food containing vegetables.
Students have learnt about the benefits of eating a diet
which is high in vegetables, and also about some of the
different ways vegetables can be preserved.
We have been very impressed by the variety and
creativity of the vegetable snacks. Some of these
included; rice paper rolls, sushi, muffins, scones,
pikelets, fritters, smoothies and dips. The students
have agreed that vegetables can be interesting and
tasty when prepared in different ways. This will help
in getting the recommended five serves of vegetables
aday!!!

to Joel Rodgriguez
PROJECT

3D Grain Match
Careful grain matching and extreme
accuracy can achieve stunning visual
effects. Joel Rodgriguez shows how.

ve always been interested in creating interesting


shapes out of wood. Both my grandfather and
father have a shed where they work and I often go
in there and mess around with tools and bits of
wood. I saw a picture in a magazine earlier this
year that showed how wood grain could be used to
create 3D effects and I was very impressed,
so I started to explore this area. I found
YouTube very helpful in getting started. This
was the genesis and before long I had a
drawing and an idea ready to discuss with
Mr Peter Jones, my wood teacher.
Once I decided what I wanted to do I thought
about what I could use it for and struck upon the
idea of a cutting board. It did not take me long
however to decide there was no way I would use it for
that after the hours I had to commit to creating it.

Clockwise from above:


The finished piece.
The final clamp was challenging.
Showing how the grain ran in
individual pieces.
A piece of wood machined square
was used as a sanding block.

For the timber I decided on pine, jarrah


and cedar. Mr Jones machined the timber
to 40 x 25mm and then we set the saw
angle to 30 and starting cutting each
section lengthwise. I found the angles not
quite perfect so I carefully sanded the sides
to ensure a close fit. I used Titebond glue
and heavy duty rubber bands to squeeze
together three blocks at a time to form
hexagons. Clamping the hexagons together
to form the final board was somewhat
of a challenge.
Prior to oiling I used a belt sander to flatten
the surface before hitting it with an orbital
using different grades. A final hand sanding
removed the rings left by the orbital.
I spent around 50 hours on this project and it took
me about one and a half terms as I spent a day a
week at TAFE. At the end of the year my school had
a technology display and I received offers but I dont
think I will sell it as I put so much sweat and hard
work into it. Its certainly the best thing Ive ever
made and I am really looking forward to getting back
into wood this year as a Year 12.
