Principal’s Report

Student Achievement

Congratulations to Paige Goodwin (Year 12, Stewart House) who competed in the 2013 Energy Australia Swimming Championships in Adelaide 26 April - 3 May.  

Paige competed in the 50m Backstroke and achieved a very good position in the Open Women’s category against swimmers from all around Australia.

For further information on this competition please go to:

http://www.swimming.org.au/calendar/index.cfm?fuseaction=SwimMeets&MeetID=11786 

I wish Paige all the very best with any future endeavours in the sport.

Past Student Achievement

Congratulations to Melanie Simpson (Class of 2010, Andrew House) who as a member of The University of Melbourne Orchestra, performed with other very talented musicians in a stunning concert conducted by renowned Conductor and Trombone Soloist Christian Lindberg  on Sunday evening, 19 May, 2013. The concert was a great success and it featured the talents of a group of remarkable young people.

Melanie Simpson plays the French Horn and was a member of the Eltham High School Symphonic Band for a number of years. Her skill and talent was evident from very early on in our Music Program but continued to develop under the direction of a highly committed group of staff and was supported by her fellow young musicians.

In her final year of secondary school, Melanie was one of our high achieving students and this gained her a place at the Melbourne University Conservatorium of Music where she continues to study and develop her musical ability and skill.

I attended the concert which I enjoyed very much and I am very proud of Melanie’s achievements to date. I wish her all the very best as she pursues a career in Music.

Staff Achievement

Congratulations to  Ed Fairlie (Instrumental Music Teacher and Conductor of the Concert Band, Stage Band and Jazz Choir) who has been commissioned

[Back to Top]

by the Association of Music Educators  (aMuse) to compose a piece for the forthcoming “Sounds Great 2013” conference.

 “Sounds Great 2013” is a music educators’ conference presented collaboratively by the music education organizations in Victoria:

 

AMUSE –          Association of Music Educators

ABODA –          Australian Band and Orchestra Directors’ Association

VOSA –            Victorian Orff Shulwerk Association

KMEIA –           Kodaly Music Education Institute of Australia

ADMIS –           Association of Directors of Music in Independent Schools

DEECD –          Victorian Regional Instrumental Music Coordinators

ANCA –            Australian National Choral Association

 

 “Sounds Great 2013” will be hosted by Arts Centre Melbourne towards the end of the Term Two holidays, July 11 – 13.

A bevvy of international presenters will be joined by outstanding local educators to present streams for band, strings, secondary classroom, primary music, music theatre and choral teachers.  Whilst the conference is provided primarily for Victorian music educators, many travel from interstate and overseas to participate.

The Association of Music Educators has asked Ed to write a conference hymn or anthem that “embraces the communal signing experience by being uplifting, inclusive and resonating”.  The piece, a three-part SAB hymn/anthem, will be performed by the delegates each day using voices and instruments, and will close the conference by being performed at the final concert in the ANZ Pavilion at Arts Centre Melbourne.

The piece will also be given to delegates as a “musical gift” to take away and share with their school communities.

The Association is extremely pleased and proud to have someone of Ed’s calibre to compose for them. The work is now complete: it is both stirring and evocative.

Ed has been invited to be the Association’s guest for the workshop component of the conference. For more details visit the website: http://www.soundsgreat.org.au/

This is yet another great achievement for Ed as a young composer and we are very proud of him and feel privileged that he continues to guide and support our young musicians.

Curriculum Day

I congratulate all the staff for their hard work and for what was achieved on Curriculum Day last Friday. A detailed report is featured in the Assistant Principal’s section of this Newsletter. The work carried out will continue throughout 2013 and support the implementation of the National Curriculum and the Aus VELS. A team effort with a very positive result.

Gonski Reform

As you would be aware, the Gonski funding on offer promises to deliver great benefits to local public schools through additional resources, better targeted to meet student need.

To highlight the importance of Premier Napthine signing the Gonski Agreement, a community rally has been organized for Saturday (May 25) at Melbourne’s Treasury Gardens between 12:30 – 2pm.

This is an important event if you value Government School Education, which in light of the most recent State Budget appears not to be a priority for the current Government.  I ask that in addition to attending the rally yourself that you please help spread the word about this event.  I have attached a poster for circulation.  You may also wish to go to the Facebook events page, which gives an easy way to invite friends and family.

[Back to Top]

In addition, Thursday this week is Public Education Day.  This Newsletter provides me with the opportunity to remind all of our community of the fundamental importance of every child having access to high quality public education.

Therefore, If you have not already done so can I encourage you all to register your support for fairer funding on the I Give a Gonski website or even to print off and hand out some fliers to friends, neighbours and even colleagues about the Saturday event.

Given the last two years of major cuts to the public school sector there is little in the State budget to redress these. Non-government schools have again received a funding boost for school education that far outweighs anything received by the government schools.

Additional funding for students with disabilities, for school support services and modest capital works are welcome but what is particularly disappointing is that there has been no commitment to the National Plan for School

Improvement. The National Plan has the capacity to guarantee an indexed, needs based school funding formula. This is crucial to support the work of government schools.

This is why I encourage you to support the rally on Saturday 25 May and I look forward to seeing you there on behalf of our students, your children.

Dangerous Behaviour on trains

It has been brought to our attention recently that a small number of students that travel to and from school by train on the Hurstbridge Line have been engaging in dangerous, risk taking behaviour.  Whilst we will address this from a school perspective, we need the support of parents to ensure that our young people understand both the dangers associated with behaviour such as travelling on the rear coupler of a train.  As well as the fact that this is highly dangerous, it is also breaking the law and that people behaving in this way will be prosecuted.

I ask parents whose children travel to and from school by train to have a conversation with your children and to remind them of your expectations, the expectations of the school and those of the public transport system with the focus that safety is the key issue of concern, followed by the law.

Generally the students from our school behave appropriately when travelling on trains and I commend them for this.

Assistant Principal’s Report

Curriculum Day

Last Friday’s Curriculum Day was a day away from classes for students but a busy day for staff as they focused on the task of Curriculum Mapping in a number of productive sessions. Curriculum Mapping is a process where the school’s curriculum is mapped out according to the key knowledge and key skills that are being aimed for in our teaching and learning program. Using a ‘Backward Design’ approach, teachers were then able to track backwards and identify the key units and learning activities that students need to progressively experience in order to meet these broader goals.

As well as ensuring that the school’s curriculum is coherent and progressively supports and challenges students, Curriculum Mapping also assists us as a school to identify opportunities for reinforcing skills and knowledge where they can be applied across learning areas (for example Mathematics and Science, or Humanities and the Arts). It will also assist the school as it moves to implement the new National Curriculum (AUSVELS). The work that was begun on Friday will be continued throughout the year in a range of forums, including Staff and Faculty meetings.

New VCE Subject – VCE Extended Investigation

Extended Investigation is a new VCE subject at Eltham High School which will be study scored in 2014.  The subject has been piloted at Eltham High through VCAA for 2 years with much success.  The subject is a Unit 3/4 sequence only and is available to all Year 11 and 12 students.

The focus of the subject is on students developing and conducting a research project in an area of interest to them.  Students are able to pursue almost any area of interest through their investigation.  The research project is an individual project although students work collaboratively to support each other through the research process.  Students are taught skills including developing research questions, critical thinking, research ethics and method design, academic writing and presentation.  Eltham High School has also developed a partnership with LaTrobe University who pair Extended Investigation students with a university based academic mentor.  The skills taught in this subject are of benefit not only in other VCE subjects but as students transition to high education.

Further details are available in the Senior School Subject Selection Handbook.  Anyone who would like further information can also speak to Ms Clarke (Office Room 304), Mrs Reed and Madame Hughes (both in Room 144), all of whom teach the subject. These teachers will also be available at lunchtime on Wednesday 29 May in room 301 to answer any questions for those who wish to attend.

Year 11: Semester 1 Examinations

The Year 11 Semester 1 examination period commences on Thursday 30 May and concludes Friday 7 June, 2013. The examination timetable has been forwarded electronically to students, who are requested to read this document carefully taking note of the date, time and venue for each of their exams. In the event that two examinations are scheduled simultaneously or an absence occurs during the course of the examination period, students are requested to access the Google Drive (forms) links to re-schedule their examination(s) to the last day Friday 7 June, 2013 during periods 3-4 and 5-6 as listed in the exam timetable. Year 11 students enrolled in a Year 12 subject are required to attend their scheduled examination as a priority and liaise directly with teaching staff in relation to completing the set working tasks missed. Where this occurs, student absences will be recorded as 'approved' on Compass.

SAC/SAT Redemption

This notice is to remind students who are absent on the day of a scheduled SAC/SAT that the redemption must occur within ONE week of a student's return to school. The SAC/SAT redemption day is each Tuesday afternoon between 3:30pm and 5:10pm. Year 12 students are expected to complete their SAC/SAT redemption during their next scheduled 'spare' periods upon their return to school prior to the Tuesday after school session. A medical certificate is required, dated on the day of the absence for students to qualify for a scored assessment.

An additional SAC/SAT redemption session has been scheduled for Year 11 students on Thursday 23 May to support the completion of Unit 1 assessments due Monday 3 June, 2013.

Eltham Mudbrick Tour - 20 October, 2013

Did you know?

1)       The first Eltham Mudbrick House tour was held in 1965.

2)       Since 1976 there has only been one year when it has not run in Nillumbik; the year of the Black Saturday fires, 2009. 

3)       Eltham High School has been the custodian of this event since 2010.

Last year’s Eltham Mudbrick House Tour was a great success and allowed the purchase of the Hoffman Grand Piano that is now located in the Performance Centre at Eltham High School.  I send my thanks again to the Eltham High School, Councillors, staff, parents and home owners who made this possible.  Thank you!

Eltham High School is running the fund raising event again this year and preparations are already advancing well. The School Council is about to begin selling advertisement space in the guide booklet and the process of sourcing houses for the tour is well underway.

Now I need your help:  We particularly need a volunteer now to take control of and drive promotion of the 2013 event.  If this is you or someone you know please contact Andrew Evans on 0417 575 061.  I am very keen to get this function started now.
