Principal’s Report

Symphonic Band Tour

I congratulate all the students on their return from the Symphonic Band Tour. From all accounts the tour was extremely successful and the students gained a great deal from the experience. Once again our students represented our school and our community in an admirable way and the feedback that they received was positive and very complimentary of the students and the program itself. I do want to thank all the staff that took on the challenge and participated in this very worthwhile venture. I particularly wish to thank Mr Rick Plummer, our Director of Music, and Mrs Jill Browne our, music secretary, for their organisation of the tour. A full report is included in a further section of this newsletter.

World Challenge and Donydji Trivia Night

A big ‘thank you’ to all the members of our community that attended the fund raising event last Friday night, 16 August. The funds raised go to support the students involved in the World Challenge Expedition this year, and in particular, the community project that will be undertaken in the village in Lao/Vietnam, as well as the community/school in Northern Arnhem Land, as part of the Donydji Project.

I commend the organisational talents of our staff and congratulate them on putting together such a successful event. I also congratulate the staff band on its performance throughout the evening. I am certain that everyone that attended had a great time, whilst supporting our students and the two very distinct projects that they will be involved in.  Well done to all!

Wear it Purple Day

Each Year Eltham High School supports “Wear it Purple Day” which will be held this year on Friday, 30 August.

Wear It Purple is a youth-led organisation that exists to support and empower rainbow (i.e. sexuality and gender diverse) young people. These are young people, working for young people.

Wear it Purple believes that every young person is unique, important and worthy of love. It believes no one should be subject to bullying, belittlement or invalidation whoever they are.

The Wear it Purple Organisation is working toward a world in which every young person can thrive; irrelevant of sexuality or gender identity. Their aim is for rainbow young people to be safe, supported and empowered in each of their environments.

‘Respect for Diversity’ is one of our school values which underpins our belief that social justice is the cornerstone of our community. Everyone has the right to feel safe, to be themselves without prejudice or fear. A diverse learning community brings richness to the learning environment and is a process that benefits both the individual and the community.

Support “Wear it Purple Day” by wearing PURPLE on Friday, 30 August.

Term 3 Working Bee

I wish to thank everyone that took part in the Working Bee last Sunday, 18 August. In particular, I wish to acknowledge and congratulate all the young people that were in attendance. As always the day was a huge success with a great deal being accomplished around the school: Planters were constructed, additional railing was positioned in different locations, posts were painted, paving was completed and a great deal of gardening was achieved.

I commend the work of the Grounds Committee who consistently ensure that the work for the day is clearly identified and that the allocation of the workforce is done with reference to their interests and skills. If you would like to be part of this dynamic and fruitful team, please contact Kate Scalzo at sca@elthamhs.vic.edu.au who will be more than happy to pass on your details to a member of the Grounds Committee for a follow-up chat.

Stay tuned for the next Working Bee and I look forward to seeing you all there.

Symphonic Band Tour to Adelaide

Last week I was lucky enough to join the Symphonic and Stage bands on their tour of Adelaide. I would like to congratulate all students for their magnificent performances throughout the week and thank the students and staff for the opportunity to spend the week with them.

Every day I observed student leadership in action. While there were students in designated leadership roles, leadership was demonstrated by each and every student at different times. Examples of how the students showed this included: Ensuring that they were all in the right place at the right time, never having to ask them to do anything more than once, being respectful of others and leaving a good impression wherever they went. This made the role of teacher an enjoyable experience and meant that the music staff could stay focused on their core business of helping the students to hone their music skills.

I would also like to comment on the support and care that the students showed for each other. The encouragement that was shared within the group during rehearsals and after each performance was heartfelt and natural. It was evident that the students wanted the best for their peers, and this support was extended to other performers as well.

Finally, I would like to comment on their willingness to reflect on their experiences. The students were constantly engaged in informal conversations with their teachers, seeking feedback, clarification and advice, with a view to continual improvement.

These experiences could not have happened without the commitment of the Instrumental Music team. The students are very lucky to have access to such a talented group of teachers. Their ongoing encouragement and support both challenged the students and led them to their best performances.

This experience encapsulates what we strive for as a school, in terms of growth and development opportunities for our students. To me, we are doing the best for our students when we know them well and provide them with challenges to encourage them to be the best they can be. Students at Eltham High School are lucky to have such a range of opportunities available to them which allows them to demonstrate their talents and strive for excellence in their chosen field.

Procedure for Illness and Injury

A reminder to parents and guardians that there is a clear procedure that needs to be followed when a student is injured or unwell at school.

While students may find it easier to make a call to their parents directly and arrange to be picked up from school, this is not the correct procedure. This is because it is important for the school to be aware when students are injured or unwell.

Students must let a teacher know that they are unwell, and they will be directed to the First Aid Room. Michelle Ford, our First Aid Attendant, will monitor students and will contact families and make arrangements for pick up as needed. 

It is important that we can account for the whereabouts of all students at all times. When students leave school they must be signed out by a parent or guardian at the General Office; this ensures that our records are always accurate. Thank you for your co-operation with this matter.

Cross Country Ski Trip: Monday, 12 August

On Monday, 12 August 21 brave students ventured to the lofty heights of Lake Mountain. The plan was to spend a day cross country skiing on the beautiful snow gum lined trails. However, the weather gods had a different plan: Extreme winds, combined with a significant number of dead trees (following the bushfires), resulted in all trails being closed for the day.


Some creative thinking by the Lake Mountain Ski School, and co-operation from the Resort Management, resulted in an alternative that still allowed us to do some skiing. Using the ski school teaching area, and the toboggan slope, students were able to learn and refine their technique. Everyone had an enjoyable day on the snow, and should be well placed for next year’s outing. An early finish allowed us to visit Steavenson’s Falls on the way home, which were looking spectacular with high river flows and lots of regrowth.

Students enjoyed the day and I would encourage Middle and Junior School students to place it in their calendar for next year.

Musical Notes

Symphonic Band Tour to Adelaide:

Sunday, 11 August – Saturday, 17 August

Thank you to Ed Fairlie, Vanessa George, Monty Mackenzie, Fran Mullins and the Symphonic Band students for an outstanding week in Adelaide. To spend a week away creating such beautiful music was an experience that will live with us forever. I would like to make special mention of our Symphonic Band Leaders, Sarah Abdurazak and Maddison Carter, who were invaluable in their support for both myself as Conductor and the Ensemble as a whole. Under their leadership, the team of Symphonic Band Leaders were exemplary with their work ethic and professionalism at each performance and throughout the week.

The focus throughout the week was on the development of our musicianship and repertoire through the various performances and rehearsals. Each performance was outstanding and captured the essence of the composers’ intent, allowing us to take our audiences on a profound emotional journey. It was also nice to be recognised at the Australian Band and Orchestra Directors Association Band Festival where Percussion Ensemble, Symphonic Band and Stage Band were all awarded First Place in their sections. Stage Band was equal First Place in their section, drawing with Marryatville High School, who are the current National Stage Band Champions.

Every band and conductor that heard the Symphonic Band perform was impressed with the level of musicianship and technical ability that we demonstrated. They were extremely appreciative of the music that we shared with their students and the impact that it made. We received so many humbling accolades throughout the week, and to quote one of the conductors:

“Great to see a band and conductor who have taken it to the next level. Thanks for coming to Adelaide and giving us a master class in how it should be done.”

Andrew Newhouse, Director of Music, Prince Alfred College

The highlight of the week for the students was their very first performance on Monday morning at Wilderness School. We produced one of the most beautiful performances of Dusk by Stephen Bryant that you will ever hear; creating a musical moment that will live with them forever.

Working Bee: Sunday, 18 August

Despite wind, wind and more wind almost 40 volunteers, comprising parents, ex-parents, students and teachers turned out and supported the Sunday Working Bee, with some impressive results to show for their efforts.  Along with a range of construction tasks, there were lots of maintenance tasks carried out that really made a difference to the overall look of the school by the end of the day. Thanks goes out to all those in attendance on the day, but special thanks goes out to the Grounds Committee volunteers who take leadership roles on the day; supervising tasks and provisioning food and drink at morning tea, as well as the barbeque lunch at the conclusion of the event.  Well done!

Below is a summary of the tasks completed on Sunday:

·         Rails and tops were affixed to the second raised box garden adjacent to the Stadium complex.

·         A short section of post and pipe fence was constructed on the west side of the new building complex to enhance student movement.

·         Fourteen metal uprights were concreted into position around the two major ironbark trees in the Courtyard complex.  Sleepers will be slotted into position in the coming weeks.

·         Pruning and weeding was completed in the Central Courtyard complex, as well as between the 800 and 900 blocks.

·         Mulching was completed on the garden beds between the 800 and 900 blocks.

·         A signification number of bollards were stained in the Central Courtyard complex, as well as around the Pin-Oak adjacent to the bike shed.

·         Soil was moved back from the wall of Room 601 and made tidy.

·         A significant amount of mowing and brush cutting was completed across the campus precinct.

·         Paving was completed around the base of the raised box garden adjacent to the Canteen.

·         A significant amount of pruning and weeding was completed in the Environmental area adjacent to the tennis courts.

Special thanks to the following volunteers who gave up their Sunday to make a difference to the environment of the school: 

Robert Ackland, Leo Adamson, Robert A, Marian Birkett, Rob Clarke, John Coates, Veronica Curmi, Lester & Mara Dale, Ivan Dickinson, Bret Ditchfield, Tref Gare with Ned Kiely, Barry & Anne Gration, Philip Green, Peter Hepworth, Sid Lancia, Kamilla Laxton, Simon MacDonald, Frank Medcalf, Chris Morrison, Tim Natoli, Lisa & David Norden, Marli Parker, Vincent Sicari, Mal Sinclair, Stephen Stone, Jeremy Taylor, Sue Washington, Julie Watson, Toni Zuzic with Celeste & Danica

Thanks also to the Canteen staff for providing food for the day.

There are two more Working Bees for the year: Sunday, 27 October and Sunday, 17 November (both in Term 4).  It would be good to see a few new faces at the events in Term 4.

Study for Change’ Excursion to NAB, The Docklands

On Friday, 16 August 2 staff and 14 students participated in a day of professional training at the NAB head office training facilities at the Docklands, together with two other state schools: Noble Park and Bellarine Secondary College. The focus of the day was to work in teams to brainstorm ways to increase understanding and awareness of human trafficking and homelessness through mediums of social media, marketing, creative thinking, finance, team management and positive thinking. The students participated in workshops arranged to enhance their public speaking skills and develop a punchy ‘elevator pitch’ for their social justice campaigns. There was an opportunity for personal reflection and a laughing meditation to promote positive thinking. The sessions culminated in a flash mob on human trafficking with an enthusiastic display of collective, collegiate involvement. 

Students at Eltham High School are currently investigating ways of raising awareness and support for a prominent campaign - The Big Umbrella Anti Human Trafficking Campaign - Child Labour and Slavery Rescue Mission. The Big Umbrella's Campaign 147 aims to raise over $52,000 in the next 12 months to fund Blue Dragon's rescue missions. Each rescue mission costs a minimum of $1000. Through this campaign, students are hoping to find at least 147 people to get involved and donate $1 a day for 365 days. All the proceeds are generously donated to this cause and will help rescue 52 children currently living a life of slavery and abuse. You can support this campaign by following the links to this website:
