Principal’s Report

 

Music Support Group Major Fundraising Event for 2011:

The Music Support group is well into planning for the annual Mudbrick House Tour on Sunday 23 October. This has become the group’s major fundraising effort for the year and we need your support. All funds raised go toward the enhancement of the instrumental music program, in particular to the purchasing of instruments, music and expert support through guest musicians and conductors.

 

If you have a Mudbrick House in Eltham that you are willing to open up to our community then the Music Support Group would be very happy to include it in the tour.

Please contact Dean at msg.ehs@gmail.com or on 94371337.

I thank you for your support with this fantastic initiative.

 

Donydji Trip Presentation:

I extend a warm invitation to all members of our school community to attend a presentation session on the school’s most recent trip to Central Arnhem Land visiting both the Donydji and Gapuwiyak communities.

Students and staff report having had a life changing experience and they want to share this with our community. The presentation session will take place on Wednesday evening, 17 August at 7:30 pm here at the school. It is envisaged that the presentation will take 30 minutes approximately. Everyone is welcome but I ask that you RSVP by contacting Kate Scalzo on 9430 5111 or at sca@elthamhs.vic.edu.au. The location of the presentation will be determined after we have an indication of numbers.

 

Digital Demons – Playing by the rules:

A Student Action Team (SAT) comprising of Billy Marshall (Year 9 – Andrew House), Tom Phillips (Year 9 – Stewart House), Louise Martin (Year 9 – Everard House) and Jasmine Gunnoo (Year 9 – Rutter House) has been selected to participate in the “Digital Demons - Playing by the Rules” cybersafety program.

 

The program is focused on cybersafety with particular emphasis on 'skilling up' students to become ambassadors for the safe and responsible use of social media. Our school's SAT will be encouraged to take action and raise awareness of cybersafe practices and behaviours within both our school and the wider community.

 

During the ‘Introduction Day’ at the Melbourne Cricket Ground  on Thursday 11 August the SAT will participate in a forum to identify the issues that surround the use of social media tools and begin planning their commitment to action. Teachers will undertake a master class that will provide an opportunity for them to ask questions about the program and support them to facilitate the performance of their SAT.

 

Following on from the ‘Introduction Day’, students will participate in two web conference sessions through the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development's Virtual Conference Centre. These sessions will support our SAT to take authentic action in our school. During the online sessions students will work with a facilitator to discuss research and analysis strategies. Offline, students will gather data and information that addresses their research questions and informs their action. The teachers supporting this initiative are Craig Bradley and Melissa Hughes.

 

This is an authentic leadership opportunity for this group of Year 9 students. I congratulate them and their teachers. I am certain that they will represent our school community in an admirable way and we all look forward to the outcome of their work.

 

Term 3 Working Bee:

I extend a personal invitation to all members of our community to join me and the Grounds Committee at our next working bee which will take place on Sunday 21 August starting at 9:00 am. Once again this is an opportunity for us to work together towards the common goal of supporting the ongoing development and maintenance of a safe and welcoming learning and work environment for our young people and staff. The work that we need to carry out is outlined in a subsequent section of this newsletter. As always a delicious morning tea and a barbeque lunch will be provided for all participants. These events also provide us with the opportunity to build community. I look forward to seeing you all there. As always students are very welcome to attend.

 

A reminder about Student Safety:

I ask all members of our community to take great consideration around student safety during peak traffic times of the day; the morning drop off and the afternoon pick-up. Of recent we have had a small number of uncooperative drivers who have impinged on the safety of our students.

 

There is a weekly report in the newsletter as to what work is planned to be carried out over the following week in relation to the building works and how this will affect the traffic management system particularly at the Withers Way entrance of the school. I ask that all parents who drive their children to school make a point to read this so that you are informed of what is happening and how this may affect you. Student safety is the number one priority and once again I ask you for your support.

 

It is important that you support your child’s timely arrival to school of a morning. There have been a number of occasions of late when parents arrive at the front of the school close to 9:00 am or even later; classes start at 8:55 am, the warning bell for period 1 sounds at 8:45 am, every child should be in the school by this time. Late arrivals tend to cause a level of panic in both the driver and the student and safety is often compromised.

 

Members of staff on duty have been placed in difficult situations because of thoughtless driving and or parking which impinge on student safety. They have had to deal with some less than ideal situations and on occasions have been verbally abused. This is not appropriate behaviour and it is unacceptable.

 

In order to minimize the amount of traffic during the period of the building program, if your child can arrive at school via some other means outside of being driven to the school I ask that you encourage them to do so. If you must drive and pick up your child from school then I ask that you plan with your child where an appropriate and safe drop-off and pick-up point might be. I suggest that you consider the Ely Street end of the school or some other place close by which alleviates you having to drive right up to the front gate of the school.

 

I remind all drivers that the maximum speed in the area of the school is 40 Kph and inform you that both the police and the traffic officers from the Shire of Nillumbik have begun patrolling the area of the school during peak times to help deter reckless driving and unlawful parking.

 

This may result in reprimand and fines.

 

Note of Condolences:

We extend our most sincere condolences to Mr John Coates and family for the recent loss of his mother and Mrs Jan Baddeley and family for the recent loss of her father. Our thoughts are with the two families at this difficult time.

BUILDING REPORT

The expected concrete pouring for the Performance Centre floor has been delayed.  Building inspectors will again be on site this afternoon to determine if the works are at a stage to allow the pour to occur.  While we are hopeful that this will happen on Wednesday morning we are not able to confirm this.  If the pour does not occur on Wednesday, we would expect it to happen on Thursday morning.

As a consequence, the Withers Way drop off area will be closed to vehicle traffic.  Please use alternate drop off points.

DONYDJI TRIP

In June 2011 Students: Lucy Robertson, Alicia Fueggle, Rob Scherini, Tess Newport, Dom Page, Oscar Weichmann and Aiden Sommers accompanied by Kristine Alford (yr 12 2010) and teachers Linda McLeod, Cameron Laurance, Phil Boyd and John Baly and Arthurs Creek PS / Doreen PS teacher Dianne Zobel travelled to Arnhem Land as part of a cultural exchange with two schools – Donydji Homeland and Gapuwiyak School. 

What transpired was a powerful exchange where students from both cultures quickly overcame any fears and immersed themselves in all activities on offer.   We learnt that life up North is often harsh with food often difficult to access due to flooded rivers and no road access.  Also the invasion of the Cane Toad has decimated much of the native fauna making it difficult to find traditional food. We also came to understand how remote this part of Australia is and how this makes everything difficult from simple things like communication and purchasing simple items to getting equal education.   Even so, the people we met were so welcoming and keen to include us in their daily lives.  The children were happy to work with us in the schools and excited to learn.

Of the many activities we participated in the following stood out:

Swimming in water holes

Fishing

Visiting art galleries and museums

Searching for bush tucker

Singing songs around the camp fire

Learning Djambarrpuygu Language

Teaching in the Schools at Donydji and Gapuwiyak

Kicking the footy with the local kids

Trekking through the bush and re-discovering a stone axe quarry

Learning about songlines associated with the area and how strong the bond is between man and land

Hanging out with our new friends/building relationships

 

Ultimately, the group returned with strong convictions about our new friends in Arnhem Land.  Everyone found it difficult re-entering our materialistic society, as the people we had made such close bonds with seem to live happily together with little.  Our experience has given us a greater understanding of what is important in life – family and friends over material gain. We saw a totally different side to Indigenous Australia.   What we found were people working incredibly hard to live together in harmony without the strife and conflict that is often portrayed in the media.  It has been insightful to see this and now our challenge is to share this with our own community to help dispel the wrong images that we sometimes believe to be true. It will be interesting to see how we go about using this knowledge in our own lives from this point on too. 

 

Here are a few sentences summing up the trip from all of the students that went to eastern Arnhem land in 2011.

 

Aidan -  It really opens your eyes to what their real culture is compared to what most people see in our lives

Dom -  it was an amazing experience once in a life time. The people are so friendly and excited

Alicia - The people in Donydji and Gapuwiyak were some of the most beautiful people I have met.  How they bring you into their family, life and culture was incredible.  It made me feel like I belonged.  As for the land, their lifestyle and culture, it will follow me everywhere I go.  I learnt that family, friends and having fun is the most important things to remember.

Lucy - Going to Donydyi and Gapuwiyak is the most amazing experience and it’s not only that, it changes you and gives you a view of life 

 Tess -The people were beautiful and honest I learnt so much about their culture and their traditions. I have come back with different ideas about the way we live 

Robert -The trip to Arnhem Land is an eye opening, life changing experience it’s something I will never forget and hope the relationships I have built will stay with me for life

Oscar – Arnhem land is an amazing place and much different compared to Melbourne. It opens your eyes and gives you a different perspective on Australia.

 

A big thank you to Jon Baly and Neville White for making the trip possible and allowing us to continue the partnership with the people of Donydji – an incredible experience that we know is so special and one money can’t buy. 

Phil Boyd
