Dear Parents, Students and Friends
Today began in prayer at the College with staff joining for Mass for the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Today is a holy day of obligation in the Church’s liturgical calendar. Fr Steve celebrated mass at 8.00am and it was a special way to begin our day.
Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA) Competition
Tomorrow, three of our students, Teagan Moses, Emma Tuckwell and Hugh Tuckwell will be travelling to Canberra to compete in the National MUNA (Model United Nations Assembly) Competition. These students, accompanied by Mrs Anna Smart and Mrs Belle Barling as team counsellors, will represent New Zealand. They will be debating six United Nations resolutions over the three-day event, in the former House of Representatives in the Museum of Australian Democracy (Old Parliament House). The resolutions debated will cover topics of international interest including trade and development, human rights issues and other important global concerns. MUNA is organised and coordinated by Rotary Australia and is endorsed by the United Nations. The students will also attend a formal dinner at the Australian National University on Saturday evening where they will listen to keynote speakers discussing current international and human rights issues. These dedicated students have spent many hours researching international laws and conventions, as well as New Zealand's foreign affairs policy, to prepare their debates and are eagerly anticipating the opportunity to compete in this event alongside schools from all over Australia. On behalf of the College, I wish them well and thank Mrs Smart and Mrs Barling for accompanying the students for the weekend.
MacKillop Day is taking place on Tuesday 27 August (Week 6). It is an e-free day. Students will be encouraged to refrain from using their devices - particularly their phones - all day! Ideally, we will be encouraging little to no use (where possible) of technology in classrooms.
There will be a short whole school assembly following homeroom where House Captains, Faith and Braith will speak to the students about a number of issues including:
- social media and phone use (overuse)
- benefits of refraining from mobile phone use
- mental health, anxiety and its links to social media
- increase in cyberbullying
- the rising issue of e-waste and its impact on the environment
Students can come casually dressed on this day and are encouraged to wear blue. We ask that students contribute a gold coin donation with monies raised going to Beyond Blue. Thank you in advance for your support.
Our College Registration was a positive experience last week. The panel was very impressed during their visit. As the finalised report becomes available, I will share the major Commendations and Recommendations with you. I take this opportunity to acknowledge the staff for their preparation and level of professionalism. Panel members commented on our positive College culture as they visited classrooms and interacted with students, parents and community partners.
HSC Trials are almost complete. I have been impressed by the commitment and perseverance of our Year 12 students over the past fortnight. They have prepared well for exams and shown the necessary diligence required for this point in their studies. Well done to all.

Mrs Belle Barling commences Maternity leave next Friday 23 August. We wish Mrs Barling and her husband Brett all the very best as they await the arrival of their fourth child. Mrs Barling plans to return to work at the beginning of Term 2, 2020.
Mrs Emma Kenna is awaiting the arrival of her second child. Mrs Kenna commences leave on Friday 6 September. Ms Jane Garland has been successful in gaining a temporary senior teaching role to replace Mrs Kenna. Ms Garland will be teaching Years 11 & 12 Hospitality classes until Mrs Kenna returns at the beginning of Term 3, 2020. I congratulate Ms Garland on her appointment. There are a few details still to confirm regarding staffing changes in this area. I will communicate these once finalised. Best wishes to Mrs Kenna and her husband Steve at this exciting time.
The feedback from our Registration Panel last week was very pleasing. All the panel commented on what a wonderful, friendly student body we have and they were impressed with the way students engaged with them. The panel also commented on the great teaching and learning they witnessed. The Curriculum team have been given some recommendations to look at around our record-keeping in particular, and some of our assessment task weightings in the senior years, but overall we have made it through the process with great results.
Our Year 12 students are currently into the final days of their HSC Trial exams. The feedback from the students has been that the exams have been very challenging, but a good practice run for the real thing later in the year. When the students receive their exams back they should take a few moments to analyse their strength areas and the areas they need to do more work on. A simple way of starting this is to go through the exam and note which questions were from individual topics, and how many marks they received for them. For example, in Biology, there are 4 topics, each worth 25% of the exam. If a student’s results were 20/25, 12/25 18/25 and 21/25, it is very clear that the student needs to do more work on the second topic. It is essential that the Year 12 students use the feedback from these exams as a catalyst to work on improving exam technique and their study. Students should be in constant contact with their teachers on ways to improve.
Our Year 11 students should be making sure their course notes are up to date and they should begin the process of committing information to their memories in readiness for their exams at the end of this term. Students should make dot point summaries of content and constantly revise them as they prepare. Study has to be more than just reading over notes. It should be an active process with a pen in hand, making notes, rewriting facts, drawing and labelling diagrams and constructing mind maps. The more revision the students do, the better their results will be.
Parent-Teacher interviews are being held in Week 5, Monday 19 August and Week 6, Tuesday 27 August from 3.30pm until 7.30pm. These opportunities to meet with your child’s teachers are very important. Teachers will be able to provide you and your child with concrete strategies that will help them achieve at a higher level. Please go into Sentral and make your bookings. If you need help with Sentral access, please contact Kristy Ellis at the College.
Curriculum and Achievement
Year 7 Faith Formation Day
Year 7 shared their first College Faith Formation Day last Friday 9 August. Formation Days are crucial in the life of the College. They are a day away from the routine of the school day, to be amongst their peers, build friendships and learn about their faith. The theme was “A Friend for Life”. Students met in small groups and as a cohort unpacked what it means to be a friend and what qualities each of us looks for in a friendship. CSYMI (Catholic Schools Youth Ministry International) students from Years 10 and 11 ran events such as ice-breaker games, workshops, and group sessions. This initiative allows for peer-to-peer ministry amongst our students. A wonderful day was had by all and I need to say a HUGE thank you to staff who supervised the day, Mr Ashby, Mrs Dell, Mrs Wales, and Ms Colalillo, and especially to our Youth Minister Juliette Pierre and the CSYMI students for their enthusiasm, faith and willingness to be involved.
St Vincent de Paul's Winter Appeal
Throughout June and August, Carroll College has been collecting donations for the St Vincent de Paul’s Winter Appeal. Thank you to all who donated to this worthwhile cause.
Today is the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is a holy day of obligation in the Church’s liturgical calendar. The feast is celebrated in honour and devotion to the Mother of God: Theotokos, the Bearer of God for us all.
The conclusion of Mary’s life on earth was marked by the same divine intervention as her birth. She was born without original sin, an immaculate conception. She is a woman par excellence; a model of virtue, humility and holiness.
From the moment of the Annunciation, Mary was both mother of Jesus and his first disciple. She would have hugged her child, kissed him better, wondered as he spoke in the Temple as a twelve-year-old and loved and supported him unconditionally as he embarked on his public ministry. We look at her as mother of the Church to guide and intercede for us with her beloved Son. (Annie Rennie)
It is that time of the term when Year 12 students are finishing their Trial HSC exams. Students are working hard on their assessment tasks and teachers are busy marking and writing reports. Please keep these students in your prayers during this busy and often stressful time.
Finally, St Bernard’s Parish is celebrating the Feast Day of St Bernard this coming Sunday after Mass at 10.00am. All are warmly invited!
Fr Francis Carroll … Pray for Us
Live Jesus in our Hearts … Forever
Mrs Charlotte Nicoletti
Faith Formation Coordinator
This year's NAIDOC week was packed full of exciting events. On Wednesday 31 July, five Catholic schools from the South Coast came together to celebrate indigenous culture at the Yuin Banaan event. The indigenous students and staff of Carroll College, Broulee; St Bernard's, Batemans Bay; St Mary's, Moruya; St Patrick's, Bega and Lumen Christi, Pambula converged on Captain Oldrey Park in Broulee to participate in a range of fun and educational cultural activities. They experienced bush tucker walks, traditional damper cooking, basket weaving, dancing and much more. Thank you to all of the agencies who supported the day and the people who gave their time to share their cultural knowledge with everyone.
This year our NAIDOC ceremony was based on the theme Voice, Treaty, Truth - let’s work together for a shared future. The students created a wonderful presentation about how Indigenous Australians have used their voices to tell the truths of the First Australians. Thank you to the Gunyuu dancers Jordan, Thomas and Max for sharing some traditional dances with us.
We have also had the pleasure of having Buddy Martin, the ACT NAIDOC Artist of the year here in the College for the past few weeks as our artist in residence. Buddy has worked with our students to paint a wonderful mural at the front entrance of the College. He has also been working with the students to assist them in creating personalised artworks on boomerangs and clapping sticks.
Our Gurumbangma Indigenous Mentoring and Transition Program starts next week for Indigenous students in Years 5 and 6. The program has been designed to support Indigenous students from our feeder primary schools to transition to high school.

This week’s instalments come from three students, Jake Brogan, who was Runner Up in the 13-15 age group and Huon Dufield and Grace Reid, who both won Encouragement Awards for their writing pieces.
by Jake Brogan
In the beginning, it was dark, different shades of brown, black and grey covered the compartment around me. I was slowly moving, no not moving, I was not in control of what I was doing. It was more like sprouting or growing. I laid in this dark space for ages, not knowing how far time had encompassed. Then in one sudden moment, in a soon to be long life, I cracked open. I could feel the root-like substances growing beneath me, slowly pushing me upwards, before I emerged from the damp ground sometime later. A seed turning into a plant, and watched as the glaring sunlight protrudes on my growing stem. I wait and watch, as the bright sun dissipates in the horizon, whilst I lay on a small patch of grass, slowly growing millimetre by millimetre.
Many moons passed whilst I took hold of my new surroundings, a large, over encumbered tree lay a few feet to my left, while I was perched on top of a small hill, overlooking a great expanse of lush bush, with the ocean, barely visible at the end of the great expanse. Wildlife surrounded the area, with birds of all types squawking and screeching at every hour of the day, many insects passed me, groups of them carrying foods of all sort to take back to their unknown home. But every now and again, people came, and spoke in an inaudible language that I couldn’t comprehend. They always looked and muttered things about the large tree next to me. as if it was some type of flaw or mistake. I instantly thought what would they do to the tree, as I felt strangely connected to it. It’s large oak trunk covered in misshapen and loose pieces of bark.
Days and days withered past, every morning the old tree was looking like it was getting older and frailer until the same group of people came with various destruction tools to end the old trees inevitable life. The noise from the fast moving device was piercing and whipped through the tree like it was paper. The tree fell down with a humongous thud, and I could hear the birds chirping and squawking in the background. But it all of a sudden seemed quiet, everything stopped moving after the thunderous thud the tree provided as its bare trunk was laid to waste. I felt it, every other form of flora and fauna felt it, that tree was important, in an unknown way, it was the beginning of the end.
The world stopped after that, every now and then I would see trees being cut down in the distant horizon, every one of them I felt like the old tree as if we were connected. I must’ve been close to ten feet now, with various fresh green leaves and a dark oak like the old tree before. I could see far higher than I could from the beginning, and I think that was being recognised. Birds and other animal perched upon my shore and sturdy branches, while insects and other little critters avoided me, because of the predators laying upon my branch. Every now and then, during this unknown time period, I heard the distant roar of the transportation device the people used, and when you heard that roar, I knew I was about to lose one of my brethren.
Behind me, many of the once lush bush that opened toward the horizon was gone. I knew as I had grown a fairly substantial amount that I would be next. I have over doubled in size and width, I cannot control my movement but I can control the direction my branches and I can go. Later I heard a different roar, a much more powerful large roar. Something was coming, everything within reach could hear it. The large machine appeared, out of nowhere, with various contraptions and sharp tools that would easily tear through anything in its way. It finished off the remainder of the once beautiful forest and replaced with a barren bare space of land. Before dusk, a large mob of people came towards my soon to be final resting place. They drew a large blue X on my now old and withered bark, as I was nearly as large as the old tree that stood before me a long time ago.
My reckoning day had begun, I heard the large machine coming from miles away. I knew I was facing my inevitable death but I had planned beforehand what I was going to do. I suddenly knew why I had been brought into this earth. So I let them hack away at my trunk, shredding me down till my last breath, but in my heart, I knew what I was going to do. It took barely a second, for what felt like an eternity. But I knew in my heart, that it was alright, dying with content, knowing that the legacy of the old tree will live on.
I woke up not knowing where I was with no recall of my memory, enclosed in a dark space. Slowly growing, not knowing my purpose, only knowing I had one. After a long period of time, I spurted from the ground, seeing an old cut tree stump. I felt strangely connected to this stump. And then I realised, I was the seedling of the old stump.

11-09-2015 Dear diary,
I just found a seed in my backyard. I couldn’t tell
what seed it was so I decided to plant it,
what could possibly go wrong...
11-02-2016 Dear diary,
my seed has grown very fast into a tree with strange fruits.
I ate one and it tasted like every fruit combined in a good way,
I’m going to start selling them, what could possibly go wrong...
11-04-2016 Dear diary,
everyone loves my new fruit I discovered, I’m the talk of town,
everyone is coming from all around to just get a taste.
What could possibly go wrong...
11-04-2017 Dear diary,
I can’t believe that my little business has grown so much.
I went from being a little town boy to someone on the news that
discovered the tastiest fruit ever, all because of a singular seed,
and nothing has gone wrong...
11-09-2018 Dear diary,
on the news today there was a sudden drop in population,
one Sunday afternoon 100 million people dropped dead.
They are still looking for the cause of death.
What has gone wrong...
11-09–2019 Dear diary,
another 50 million have died and over 200 million in quarantine,
they are yet to find out what the cause was.
I just hope I don’t get affected. What else could go wrong...
11-07-2019 Dear diary
they have found out the cause, and I can’t believe it, it’s all my fault.
I can’t believeI did this, I hope no body comes for me.
It wasn’t my fault, how could I have known I wouldn’t be able to expla%§#*~...
*Knock Knock Knock* “FBI OPEN UP” I dropped my pencil and ran to my bedroom door and locked the latches. What could I do I would be accused of murdering millions, I have to get out of here. I open the window and climb out onto my roof, and then ran out to the back of my house, jumped into my neighbours yard and just ran and ran and didn’t look back.
When I got to the subway I tried to hide my face, there were notices of me on them saying “Keep clear, Dangerous person” and “Report if seen” I can’t believe I became a wanted criminal and now I’m on the run. I snuck onto the train and try’d not to stand out. I was just shocked that I hadn’t been harmed by the fruit since I was the first to try it.
I could feel someone staring at me, I could see them out of the corner of my eye but I didn’t want to draw attention so I ignored it ready to get off at the next stop hoping that person wouldn’t follow me. The train came to a screeching stop at my destination, I swiftly hopped off and headed for the exit when I noticed two security guards there, I quickly turned around and tired to blend into the crowed before they noticed me but it was too late one pointed to me and started to walk towards me. I started to walk away but they started to jog so I just ran onto the tracks, I knew I wouldn’t be able to convince them I was innocent so I kept running until I saw a light.
Except it wasn’t the light of day but of a train coming straight towards me. I see a door in the distance but the train is coming in fast, I ran to the door but the handle wouldn’t budge *BEEP BEEP* I bang on the door again and again but it won’t open I just have to keep trying because it’s too late to turn back. A kick the door and again and it finally opens I slip through and the train speeds past wind and dust blowing in my face I had just made it with my life. I snuck through the tunnel system and into the outside world. I snuck past shops and though ally ways until I got to the outskirts of the city and into a small abandoned shelter. I don’t think I can go out into the real world again. At least not until a cure is found and I’m forgotten.
11-09-2030 Dear diary,
The population is still slowly depleting and I’m still on the run
I’m not sure how much longer I can do this for, I’m starting to
get sick and the food supply is running low.
I can’t believe everything has gone wrong.
The Trouble With Magic Seed
by Grace Reid
Upon Cyril the crow’s extraordinary luck, he found a seed he believed to be magic. The seed was small, it glowed an unusual mustard yellow but anything that glows or shines Cyril thought ought to be magic. So upon this crow logic, he kept the seed.
Quite oddly this seed was discovered on a Thursday, Cyril does not like Thursdays. Thursday is Cyril's least favourite day, he believes the day is too far gone in the week to be a beginning but too far from the end of the week to be an ending. So alas a Thursday to Cyril will never be anything but a Thursday.
Being early in the morning the crow grove where Cyril lived, called Velence was mostly deserted. Everyone had left to scavenge for food meaning the nests were empty, Cyril carefully placed the seed in a covert space unknown to any of the other crows. Once having done this Cyril decided that since the summer heat was setting in he would go for a quick bathe in the neighbouring river, near his nest that was perched on a high branch of an old yew tree.
So Cyril left. Once Velence was completely deserted the only thing to disturb the peacefulness of the tall Sycamore and Yew trees that created the crow colonies grove, was the hot summer air that blew gently through the trees and pushed the clouds overhead far to the East. Producing the most picturesque European woodland, with the sun gracing the earth with its warm beams of light and the promise of a prosperous summer season.
The covert hiding place that Cyril had hidden the seed, may have been unknown to all the other crows but it was not unknown to Basil the squirrel. Who used the tree nook hole to store some of her food and vittles in preparation for winter. Stumbling upon the odd seed Basil realised that she had not put it in the tree nook. Basil was crafty and knew the only other creature who used this knook was Cyril. So to spite the naive bird who she disliked very much, due to his tendency to continuously remove her food and replace them with shiny objects and long pieces of string, she took the seed knowing something as shiny as this odd little seed would be very much missed and searched for, dashing through the woodlands.
Cyril returned and to his distress, the seed was gone. You can picture the sight, a distraught crow flapping and crying about the place like the world was going to end. It truly did feel like the world might end for the dramatic bird. Cyril went to investigate the grove, questioning every creature who was arriving back to Velence after the morning scavenge. The crow went about asking where they had just returned from and what they had previously been doing, whether they saw anything suspicious whilst around the woodland.
One young squirrel by the name of Rosaly mentioned that she had seen Basil entering the grove when it was deserted, mentioning that it was odd for her to be entering the grove without any food with her. Also that she had been acting oddly all morning after her initial trip to store food. Immediately assuming a cynical plot, Cyril went off in search of the suspect squirrel in question.
After journeying far across the woodland Cyril found Basil lounging in a grove full of almond trees. Content and more arrogant than ever, leaning against the base of a large oak tree. Seeing Cyril swoop in she began hurling insults towards him to further anger the foolish bird. In a wave of indignation Cyril spat insults in retaliation, then a quarrel broke out between the pair. Now it must be known that this odd pair wore, like the rest if their clans, tunics and jerkins as well as other pieces of clothing. They may be simple creatures but they are sophisticated beyond compare to any other two species of animals, besides the otter and church mouse.
Now when Cyril pecked and striked at Basil, the seed that lay precariously in her tunic pocket fell out. Claw, beak, tail and talons were all used in this brawl that disrupted the peace and serenity that’s had once befallen the woodlands. Seizing the magic seed Cyril flew through the trees at a rate you can only imagine.
What happened next was completely unprecedented, the seed pushed its way out of Cyril's beak as he flew. Mid-air the seed grew legs and fell to the ground with the grace of a swan. Cyril was beside himself with shock, chasing after the seed. The last he saw of the rogue leg-growing seed was when it landed in the hollow of a log and miraculously disappeared. Cyril spent several days after that pacing the length of the hollow log until he decided it was no use, his magic seed was gone forever. To think the seed was found on a Thursday, a day too far gone it the week to be a beginning and too far into the week to be an ending. Cyril thought to himself that maybe Thursdays aren’t that bad after all.
Peering down at Earth the Goddess Demeter laughed like she hadn’t in many a Millenia at the odd crow Cyril and his furry nemesis Basil the squirrel. The pair who fought over the possession of a seed Cyril believed to be magic. It turns out the seed truly was magic, Demeter cackled to herself as she lifted the leg-growing seed in question. “Caused a lot of trouble haven’t you, my magic friend”, as if answering the seed hopped about enthusiastically causing further laughter from the Goddess of grain and agriculture.
Archdiocesan Netball Gala Day
On Wednesday, 31 August Mrs Johnston, Miss Bonner and I took 56 keen netball playing students to Canberra to compete in the Archdiocesan Netball Gala Day. It was a chilly 5.30am start, and a cold day on the Lyneham Courts but the girls toughed the wind chill and played well throughout the day.
Outstanding team spirit, maturity and ability was shown throughout the day by all teams.
The competition was fierce! We had some pleasing results; our 7/8 Division A, 9/10 Division B and the Year 12 Open teams narrowly missed out on making the finals – a pleasing result overall for the day.
All Carroll teams won more than half to most of their games throughout the day. Many girls also umpired and handled themselves professionally throughout games. Most importantly, the girls had a fantastic time, and their behaviour was exemplary. The students really represented the College with pride all day.
Miss Hailee Gray
Year 11 and 12 Industrial Technology spent Friday afternoon with Jerry from Pine Design completing their industry Study. We would like to thank Jerry for his time and knowledge. The students enjoyed their visit and the experience is vital for the HSC students in preparation for their trial exams.
