Welcome back to Term 4, I trust that all had a relaxing break and our Year 12 students were hard at work studying.
Our Year 12 students are currently undertaking their exams at the College. Months of revision and study are now coming to a head as they sit their exams which will determine their ATAR. Many of the students are using the HUB as a place for quiet revision, study, and support. I would encourage those who find studying at home a challenge to continue to utilise the support that the College offers students.
I had the great pleasure of being a part of the Leadership Evening for our student leaders last Thursday evening. It gives me great confidence to see the students discuss, plan and exchange ideas on the way that they can help improve the College and make a difference to all students in the school. Their vision aligns with that of the College with a strong focus on mental health and bullying in 2019.
Carroll College Community Council
The Term 4 Community Council meeting will take place on Thursday 1st November at the College. This council of parents works with the college to set strategic direction. There are a number of vacancies available on the council and I encourage parents to join to have strategic input into their child’s education. The meeting will take place at the College in the new D Block.
If you are interested in joining the Community Council please email me at the college and I will forward the names and nominations onto the council.
The last stage of the College building works is well underway with the refurbishment and development of E Block classrooms and the staff resource centre. The four stages over the last 14 months have been a long process with many disruptions for staff and students. The long-term benefits for students will be immense and students have been enjoying the new facilities of D Block already. Completion is due Term 3 2019 and will see one-third of the College being redevelopment.
I am happy to show parents around the new building and facilities at the College. Please contact me below to arrange a suitable time for a tour.
With term four already upon us and planning for the new year well underway, the Pastoral Team is busy putting together a valuable Pastoral Care Programme for our students. We recently conducted a survey of the student body, the results of which, will help inform the content of the Programme. Among the concerns raised by our students was cyber bullying and wanting to look at ways to stay safe online.
Consequently, we will be informing them of impending changes to the law to combat online abuse.
These laws, to be implemented by the NSW Government are designed to protect people from serious online abuse, ranging from serious cases of cyberbullying and trolling, through to the stalking and harassment of victims of domestic and personal violence.
The NSW Government will introduce legislation amending the law to make it clear that the definitions of ‘stalking’ and ‘intimidation’ in the Crimes (Domestic and Personal Violence) Act explicitly includes activities conducted online or via text messages that are designed to instill fear of physical or mental harm. These amendments will also confirm that courts have the power to make Apprehended Violence Orders in response to serious online abuse. This will ensure that perpetrators stop their abusive online behaviour or face arrest and possible imprisonment.
People who stalk or intimidate using modern technology will face a maximum five-year prison term under the NSW Government’s amendments. The change announced recognises that online abuse can cause victims significant psychological trauma and have potentially devastating, even tragic consequences.These changes are not aimed at policing free speech. They are aimed at preventing abuse.
Examples of abuse that these amendments aim to tackle include:
• posting threatening or hurtful messages, images or videos online;
• repeatedly sending unwanted messages online; and
• sending abusive emails.
The reforms address an emerging trend of offenders threatening and harassing victims on social media.
This activity can make its victims feel scared, powerless and depressed. Carroll College is committed to educating our young people to not only protect themselves from such online abuse but to also raise awareness of the serious consequences of these types of behaviours. We live in a technology driven society and young people must be able to navigate themselves with surety.
If you have any current concerns about your child and the content of their social media accounts, you can make a report to the E-Safety Commission. https://www.esafety.gov.au/ or, if it is occurring during school hours, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s Pastoral Leader.

Carroll College Honour Roll
During Term Three, we announced a new Award for 2018 - The Carroll College Honour Roll, to be presented during our annual awards ceremony in December to an ex student of the Carroll College Community. The award, known as the Carroll College Honour Roll will be selected based on the following criteria:
- Demonstrated excellence in their chosen field - Sporting, Cultural, Science or the Arts
- Made a substantial humanitarian contribution to the Local/National/Global Community
- Demonstrated leadership, innovation and creativity
- Contributed to the community on a voluntary basis
- Made a substantial contribution to development of regional community and/or economy
- Become an inspirational role model for the students at Carroll College
We are currently beginning the shortlisting process for 2018 and are calling for nominations. If you are aware of any ex student who demonstrates one or more of the above criteria, we would love to hear from you.
You are invited to contact the college: firstname.lastname@example.org (mailto:email@example.com) with the following information:
- Name of the Student
- The years they attended the College
- A brief five to ten dot point outline of what they have achieved since they have left the college and how their actions demonstrate one or more aspects of the above criteria.
We very much look forward to hearing from you and commencing the task of documenting the achievements of our alumni.
Term Four sees students making the switch to their summer uniforms. In line with the current policy, girls dress lengths should be no less than four centimetres above the knee. Ankle socks are white for girls and grey for boys. Moreover, as part of our summer uniform policy, students should be wearing their College Cap while outside during terms 1 and 4. Even though some days may be cloudy, UV rays are present and they can be causing irreversible skin damage.Caps are available for purchase through the canteen and at $8.00 represent great value for money.Our current uniform policy can be found on the College Website. If you need any clarification, please follow the link below:
The 2019 College Leaders were inducted last term during the final Year 12 Assembly. At this time, the role of Faith Formation Captain was announced. I am pleased to introduce Gretchen Ashby, Cosette Klarica, Tayla Preddey and Destinee Zischka as the inaugural Faith Formation Captains.
Their role, whilst developing, will include:
* Inspiring Year groups and the student body to actively participate in College activities
* Working alongside other captains to share ideas, kick-start approved initiatives and the like
* Promoting faith development in younger students, encouraging the experience of the spiritual dimension of other religious traditions and emphasising the importance of attending Mass
* Working with the CSYMA Students
* Encourage the initiation of a Social Justice Action Group and become more active in spirituality initiatives
During the holidays Year 10 students Liarna Miller and Jorja Scott, travelled to the Northern Territory as part of 2018 Youth Ministry Mission Trip. The girls will give a short presentation at this Friday’s assembly sharing their highlights from the experience. Here is a brief snippet of their stories
While I was in the Northern Territory, my eyes and heart were opened to the innumerable ways God is working in my life. I left having witnessed first-hand what God’s presence has helped people achieve. The most rewarding part of the mission trip to Darwin was the joy that came of serving others. I learned so much at Daly River, not only through eye-opening experiences, but also through meaningful conversations. Everyone I met gave me a new perspective on life. One of my best memories is camping at Daly River. We laid under the stars, immersed in rich culture and faith. We prayed together, we laughed together, we told stories together. The Holy Spirit was so alive in that moment. I want to respond to the more important question, “what did I do afterwards?” Since then I have all this new motivation to spread the gospel and to help others. I want to better understand my own faith and I aspire to be a better person, and take on the attitude of those I met on the trip. The mission trip to the Northern Territory was truly a life-changing experience. I feel blessed.
My long list of highlights began when I got on the first plane on the way to Darwin, Northern Territory for the 2018 Youth Ministry mission trip. But a moment that I will never forget was being able to hear the wisdom from and share our experiences with Miriam Rose an elder from the Aboriginal community Daly River. She is the the most amazing, powerful woman I have ever met. Miriam has inspired me to continue journeying through faith and has made me aspire to have a deeper connection with the Indigenous people of my local community. This experience as a whole has showed me how to talk to God and to understand that he is always there and loves me no matter what.
Fr. Francis Carroll … Pray for Us
Live Jesus in our Hearts … Forever
Mrs. Charlotte Nicoletti
Coordinator of Religious Education and Faith Formation
Please keep the following families in your prayers. Jade Delaney (Yr 9) on the passing of her Grandfather, Kate Kavanagh (Yr 7) on the passing of her Grandmother and Zailie (Yr 11) & Hollie-Kae Betts (Yr 12) on the passing of their Grandfather.
This term I am saying farewell to Carroll College, after almost 2 school years in this role. When I began, I anticipated seeing my own children into high school here, however, changes in our circumstances will instead see us relocating to Canberra for 2019. My final week at the school will be week 5.
I don't have words for the ways in which the students of Carroll College have taught, inspired, challenged, delighted and amazed me in my time here. To the young people of Carroll College: whether I've worked with you directly or not, you have continually refreshed and invigorated my hope for a just and kind world. Thank you.
The staff here - teachers, admin, leadership, support - have all impressed upon me their commitment to the school and the school community, and to the holistic wellbeing of students. We are working together to ensure that students and families know where to get additional support in the event of any delay in recruiting for this role.
As parents and carers, if you have concerns about your child’s wellbeing - whether at school or outside of school - you have several options for support:
- check out Headspace (www.headspace.org.au) for the parents & carers section and/or to link your child into the resources developed specifically with and for young people.
- talk with your young person. Be prepared to actively listen and try not to problem-solve unless asked to. Give them time to come back to you if they don’t want to talk right away.
- if the concerns relate to school or are affecting them at school in some way, encourage them to talk with the pastoral coordinator, or contact them yourself.
- take them to see a GP about a referral for counselling
Sometimes our childrens' struggles expose challenges for us as parents, carers, siblings that we haven’t previously realised or that we come to see in a new light. Seeking support for ourselves, or family counselling, can positively impact every individual in the family as well as strengthen the whole family unit, and challenge the stigma that young people sometimes feel about seeking support. Both Catholic Care (http://www.catholiccare.cg.org.au) and Relationships Australia (https://www.relationships.org.au) offer relationship and family counselling locally, as do several private pracitioners.
Good mental health is a community responsibility, and our community is our strongest resource.
It’s been an honour to work as part of the Carroll College community.
Aside from Headspace, other helpful websites include:

Thank you and go well.

Our Year 12 students have begun the final chapter of 13 years of schooling with the start of their HSC exams. Those students I have spoken with after their exams have said that they have been challenging but fair. We wish them all the best as they complete the remainder of the exams. The last exam is not until the 8th November.
The initial stages of next year’s timetable are well under way. Students in Years 8-10 will soon receive an email outlining the courses they have been allocated. If any student needs to make changes to their selections, they need to see me ASAP so staffing and rooming can commence.
Students in Years 7 to 10 will soon begin receiving their final assessment tasks for their subjects. It is important that they get started as soon as possible as this time of the term is always very hectic.
End of Year Exams will commence for Year 10 in Week 5, and Years 7-9 will commence in Week 6. Please talk to your child about planning their study time so that they can achieve their best possible result.
If you have any concerns with your child’s learning, please contact their classroom teacher as soon as possible so that any issues can be resolved before they become major problems.

Shakespeare: A man for all of us
Any English teacher has heard the whining “But why do we have to study Shakespeare?” What is our answer? There are many. I would like to examine just a few:
- Would any Maths teacher say that studying the works of Pythagoras or Euclid, just because they lived 3,000 years ago, was unwise? Of course not! These mathematicians are studied because they are at the top of their game”- the best of the best- so to speak. And so it is with Shakespeare. He is the greatest writer in the English language and it would do a grave disservice to students to ignore him simply because he is “old school”.
- “Anything we know about the human, we learn from Shakespeare”. These are the words of the great literary critic, Harold Bloom, who asserted that understanding what it means to be human in all its vast intricacies lies in the works of The Bard. Shakespeare speaks to all of us across 430 years, posing searching questions about our motives and actions. Jealousy, greed, moral cowardice, love, hatred, reconciliation, they’re all there in The Complete Works.
- Whilst William Shakespeare did not formulate completely original works, he literally made “silk purses out of a sow’s ear”. His is the language of kings and commoners. He as the great impresario of his times. His tragedies were meant to catch the conscience and to show that all men and women share the same stage called life. Whether our lives are brief candles or not, we have to make of life what we best want.
- Parents! Have you read King Lear? Everyone knows what it is to have a thankless child at some stage but woe to any of us who treat our children with anything less than deep respect. It is too late for Lear at the end of the play. Reconciliation starts in the present moment! It is as true in 2018 as it was in the 17th
- Did you know that the great man invented many words? Your children are curious and do love exploring quirky phrases and words. Not that I am encouraging insults being used but there is a wonderful site called “Shakespearean insults” that children love.
- Who of us does not remember a monologue or a tract of dialogue learned at school? These things stay with us because they are beautifully crafted and true to life. Hamlet, Portia, Shylock, Edmund, Emilia all had great speeches!
- His plays say something to every age and every culture. As you read this, Shakespeare’s plays are being performed in every corner of the earth, in every language. How can it be? It is because he taps in to universal themes and values.
- It is in the craft of a teacher to make him accessible to the young. I love nothing else so much as an ex-student telling me years later “Now I see what the fuss is about”.
In 1995, I had an all-boys Year 9 English class on the Central Coast. We studied Macbeth. At lunchtime, four boys would wander into my classroom and do play readings. One came up with the idea of turning the play into a version of Star Wars. The original idea of Darth Vader as Macbeth. Because of the interest from budding thespians, musicians and designers in the group, I decided to submit a musical score, dialogue and set design to The Shakespeare Schools Competition. Six boys from a regional school with no airs and graces with just passion and perseverance won the national competition for set design and were winners of the NSW phase in all categories. I have never forgotten it for it proved that The Bard’s plays get through to the curious and the inquisitive, to readers who can and do see Shakespeare’s relevance today.
So, I sing in praise of my favourite writer who daily inspires me. His genius continues to take my breath away. He is wise beyond his schooling; he knew all too well the chambers of the human heart and could see the human condition in all its majesty and degradation. He had no elite schooling but as they say, “a wise man learns from books and life itself”.
I know from observing my CCB Year 9 class that they both understood Macbeth and, more importantly, designed contract work that showed real engagement and pleasure.
Optometrist visit and Biology dissection.
Craig and Ron from OPSM visited the college to see year 12 Biology students before their trial examinations. They assisted us with an eye dissection and all the required information for our communication topic. This proved very helpful as all students gained a good understanding and knowledge. Craig and Ron came prepared with a presentation and guided our session. We would like to thank OPSM and especially Craig and Ron for volunteering their time to assist us with our studies.
Thanks Yr 12 Biology. (Brandon I’Anson and Harry Shannon)
Ron working with eyes still in place.
There will be an assistance dog coming into the HUB on occasion during Term 4. As the dog is at school for a specific purpose, we request that students do not approach or pet her. If there are any students who have an allergy to dogs/dog hair, could parents please contact the school within the next week, so that steps can be taken to alleviate any issues that may arise.
Acting Learning Support teacher
We travelled to Albury on Monday 24th September for the State Finals in the Under 15 Boys AFL, with games played on the 25th September.
Our first opponents were TRAC (The Riverina Anglican College, Wagga Wagga). This team had many representative juniors and it was obvious after the first few minutes that we were facing a far superior opponent in all facets of the game. Our boys simply do not compete with sufficient intensity for the first half of the game and TRAC made us pay scoring 52 unanswered points.
After a halftime rev up the boys came out and really competed for everything and played strong footy. Unfortunately, even though we restricted TRAC to 26 points in the second half, we were unable to score a point. The final score was 78-0.
Game two had us playing Westfield Sports High School from Sydney. It was evident that the team’s confidence was down and it showed. Westfield started determined to put a win on the board after losing comprehensively to TRAC earlier on. Our first half performance had a few players competing well whilst others were not putting in their usual performance. Westfield held a 48-0 lead by the halftime siren.
Our second half performance was a little better with Westfield only having ten shots on goal. Again, we were unable to score a point even though we came very close on several occasions. Westfield Sports won the game 88-0. Some gutsy performances from Stuart McGee, Lavhy Franchi and Caleb Piper.
Even though the scoreboard was disappointing for the team, the boys certainly came away with much needed experience and some fond memories of an overnight trip with many of their friends. A great effort to reach the State Finals. Congratulations to the team. Also, a special thanks to Mr. Simon Wheatley for coming down and assisting the team.
Stuart McGee (Captain), Luka Brogan, Noah Reid, Tully Ware, Jake Brogan, Charlie Jones, Jed Salmon, Ryle Schuchman, Declan Cursio, Jack Davis, Michael Diacomihalis, Lavhy Franchi, Harrison Gleeson, Dylan Golden, Archie Hadley, Harry Haultain, Samuel Heffernan, Taj Pendlebury, Caleb Piper, Kody Thompson.
PDHPE Teacher/AFL Coach
CCB Greenies is an environmental social justice group established by our current Yr 12 students. The Greenies, have worked hard within the school and the Eurobodalla Shire to join the global community in reducing the impact of waste on our planet. We have a name change; Rosellas.
The new name makes a connection to the importance of Australia’s native wildlife and reiterates the defining features of the group: an independent and local team of members committed to achieving solutions to environmental issues that affect our Shire. The Rosellas are not affiliated with any political parties, but rely on people inspired to do their small part in support of environmentalism. Students are encouraged to see the work that the Rosellas do by attending the fortnightly meetings in the Hub at AM2 on Tuesdays of Week B.
As part of our reduction of waste initative the Rosellas along with Carroll College has introduced a Water Bottle that can be purchased via the following options.
The introduction of the water bottle is to reduce ongoing waste within the College. With the water refill station available and another to be installed these can be refilled and re-used.
This is a solid metal bottle with a dedicated area under the crest for the students name, for easy identification.
Please ensure their full name is on the bottle so these can be returned if misplaced.
Cost is $13
Application for Reduction of Fees, Due Dates & Payment Arrangements
It is recognised that families make choices and priorities in regards to their standard of living, investments, education and extra-curricular activities. The school considers that families who have chosen a Catholic Education consider it important and that fee payments will be prioritised accordingly and live up to the Parent Charter.
Parents experiencing significant financial difficulties may apply for school fees assistance. This is done through the Application for Reduction of Fees. Any reductions granted generally apply on a year by year basis, i.e. a separate application is required each year. In some situations, the reductions may be reviewed on a term by term basis, in which case you would be required to lodge an application at the commencement of each term. You may be asked to meet to discuss various aspects of your application. It is necessary that where you are granted a reduction in school fees that you commit to and maintain a suitable payment plan.
Government Grants provide part of the funding required to operate the College. The balance of operating costs must be found through college fees. The continued existence of Carroll College is dependent on parents paying the required level of fees. Every effort will be made by the College to recover fees from parents who are deemed to have the capacity to pay.
Applications for Reduction of Fees must be made at the earliest opportunity rather than later so that assistance is able to be provided. Fees are due at the end of the 1st week of each term. If you have not applied for an Application for Reduction of Fees and no formal payment arrangement has been made with the College - even if you are paying weekly, fortnightly, monthly or on an adhoc basis – fees must be paid in full by the end of each term at the latest or additional administrative fees will be incurred. The exception to this is families with Year 12 students, those fees are due by the end of Term 3. If you are having difficulty paying your fees, please contact the Business Manager as soon as possible via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you make an Application for Reduction of Fees it may result in:
Fee Payment Arrangement e.g. an amount determined to be paid per week or fortnight or other option through a specific payment method (e.g. Direct Debit) – which allows you to manage your payments. This will not reduce the amount of your outstanding fees but allows manageable payments to be made over time. An important part of any arrangement is ensuring that you maintain your payments. This arrangement demonstrates your willingness to address outstanding fees and to make regular payments. The College will contact parents to determine the most appropriate amount to be paid on a regular basis.
Fee Concession/Remission is an arrangement whereby a parent is not required to pay the full amount of fees. A partial or full remission/concession may apply but is subject to conditions. For example, a fee payment of $50 per fortnight by Direct Debit throughout each term and the remaining term fees may be remissed or written off. If the payment or any other conditions are not maintained, the arrangement is void and full fees will be due immediately.
No fee concession/remission – however an applicant can go onto a Payment Arrangement.
Conditions will apply to any Application for Reduction of Fees and must be upheld in order for the arrangement to continue. Past payment history will be taken into consideration for any future assistance.
The Fee Committee will assess and make determinations about any Applications for Reduction of Fees. Applications are considered confidentially and on a case by case basis. Each application must be submitted with the relevant supporting documentation. Any application and subsequent arrangement can be reviewed at any time, particularly when circumstances change. Please ensure that regular updates are provided to the College which impacts students and family fee payments e.g. major health issues, breakup of family, different living
arrangements, responsibility for fee payments. Where there are changes to the responsibility for payment of fees, the change form must be completed by both parties and provided back to Carroll College to take effect.
It is also important to make Applications for Reduction of Fees at the earliest opportunity including at the start of each school year or start of the term so that applications can be reviewed and assistance can be provided. Retrospective applications will only be considered in extenuating circumstances.
If you are paying your fees regularly - weekly, fortnightly, monthly or on an adhoc basis but have not applied for (and don’t plan to) lodge an Application for Reduction of Fees, you must acknowledge your payment of fees will extend past the due dates, payment will not be completed by the end of the term or School Year, specify the payment arrangement and nominate a date when fees will be paid in full. Please contact the Business Manager to discuss and formalise this arrangement. Please email in the first instance: email@example.com These payment arrangements will be reviewed annually and require families to provide updates as part of this process. If you do not contact the Business Manager, your fees will be treated as outstanding fees and will be followed up as per Catholic Education and Carroll College Fee Policies.
College Fees assist with the operation of Carroll College including building works, equipment and resources which provide our students with many opportunities. Where there are outstanding fees, these will be followed up according to the Catholic Education and Carroll College Fee Policies (excluding anyone on a Reduction of Fees Arrangement or Payment Arrangement – where conditions are being met and regular payment/s are being maintained). As part of this process, continuing outstanding fees, unsatisfactory responses, non-payment or lack of regular payment will result in the pursuit of those outstanding fees through a debt collection agency.
Year 12 School Fees
For any families with Year 12 students, fees must paid in full by the end of Term 3.There are still several families yet to address these outstanding fees. Please make arrangement to settle your outstanding fees as soon as possible.If you expect to settle your fees shortly, please advise via email and also indicate the expected date. If you don’t expect to settle your fees – please provide some detail via email to the Business Manager: firstname.lastname@example.org

Due to the refurbishment of the Staff Centre and the relocation of the Staff Kitchen to the Restaurant, the associated outdoor Year 12 Kitchen now forms part of this interim arrangement as it provides hot water for staff. The outdoor Kitchen is therefore out of bounds to all students and will no longer be available for the Year 11 Students about to become the next Year 12 Student cohort.
As an interim measure during the refurbishment and construction of the Staff Centre, the Year 11 Students who have been elected to the SLT will be part of a special Year 12 Canteen Roster to provide access to Year 12 students only, requiring hot water or food heated in a microwave. Those SLT students will serve Year 12 students only via a dedicated Year 12 line at the Canteen which is expected to run for the first 10 minutes of AM Break and PM Break. If no SLT students attend on their roster, then Year 12 students will not be able to access hot water or microwave as Canteen Staff will be operating as per usual routine.
All Year 11 and 12 students are invited
and encouraged to take advantage of
Senior Study Sessions in the HUB.
Sessions are held every Monday and
Wednesday from 3.20pm- 4.20pm.
The sessions offer:
Individual tutoring and assistance
A sustained private study environment
Time management guidance
Study skills and strategies tips
Collaborative learning facilities
Task planning and editing assistance
