Year 12 Examinations
Our Year 12 Examinations began this week with English, Economics, Biology and Further
Mathematics. Many of our Year 12 students have been visiting the school over the last few
days to meet with teachers and to receive final advice and last minute tips. We have all been
impressed by the preparation of this year’s Senior class and are confident that they will do
their best over this examination period. We offer them our full support and we look forward to
celebrating their results with them on Monday 15 December 2014.
Grandparents’ Day
United Nations Public
Speaking Competition
On Tuesday 28 October, we welcomed approximately 400 grandparents and family friends of
boys from all levels to our school. They were given a tour of the school by their grandsons,
attended a concert involving musicians from all sections of the school, and then were able to
spend and enjoyable lunch together in the Performing Arts Complex. This is always a very
important day in our busy calendar but one that is most rewarding. Our students are always
so delighted to be able to show their school to their grandparents and family. I thank and
appreciate all those staff, students and parents who work to make the day a great success,
in particular Mr Ken Schwab, Mrs Elizabeth Board and the Development Office staff, and to
the members of the CGS Auxiliary for their assistance. I know that the students who had the
opportunity to show their Grandparents around the school were very proud to do so and I hope
that the Grandparents enjoyed their day too.

Many students in the Senior School sat the Australian Mathematics Competition in August. A
large number of these students received Credit, Distinction or High Distinction certificates. The
very top students, those who scored in the top 0.3% of students in Victoria, received a prize.
This year, I am pleased to announce that we have five prize recipients: Danny Chen (Year 9)
and Yueyang Chen, Mike Ji, Leo Wan and Nicholas Wong (all in Year 10). Congratulations to all
five students who were presented with their prizes at yesterday’s Assembly.

Victorian Young Leaders to China Program
Regional Athletics 2014
Fourteen students, accompanied by Mrs Lynn Shiau, recently participated in a six-week
Victorian Young Leaders to China Program, initiated by the state government. The program
was an opportunity to be part of a life-changing international education experience aimed at
students developing capabilities for modern ways of living, thinking and working. It provides
the students with a rich learning program, assisting them in developing and demonstrating
leadership skills, and empowering them to make an active contribution to their schools and
communities as young leaders.
The students increased their global knowledge, intercultural understanding and developed
thinking and relationship skills for engaging in a global context, as well as improving their
language skills in Mandarin.
The boys attended pre and post-program seminars to assist in warming them up to the
experiences and challenges they were likely to face, as well as a debrief on their return, which
also included presentations of their chosen project tasks undertaken as a consequence of their
experiences in China.
Congratulations to the following fourteen boys who were presented with their certifications of
completion at yesterday’s Assembly, in recognition and acknowledgement of the work they did

Alliance Françoise Competition 2014
Earlier this year, 39 students of French in Years 11 and 12 participated in the annual French
orals competition conducted by the Alliance Françoise de Melbourne. This year our students
received a total of 16 Credits, 6 Distinctions and 5 High Distinctions.
All students are to be congratulated for participating so enthusiastically in this year’s competition.
Three of our Year 12 Leavers, Michael Anderson, Louis Cerdan and Harry Purves were awarded
perfect scores in the first round of the competition and were subsequently invited to participate
in the finals.
At yesterday’s Assembly, I had the pleasure in presenting achievement certificates to Year 11
students Max Harper, Andrew Masanauskas and Augustine Nguyen who each scored a High
Distinction in this year’s competition.
House Plays
The criteria for this year’s House Play Festival was that they be ‘One-Act Plays’ and each House
is to be commended on producing entertaining plays of a very high calibre. The Semi-Finals
were held on Tuesday 14 October and the adjudicators, Ms Wood and Mr Hall, whittled down
the competition to just four Houses: Bridgland, Robinson, Steven and Summons to do battle
in the finals.
With Joel Hrbek (Year 12) as Masters of Ceremonies, and this year’s House Play Finals
adjudication by Mr Gough and our special guest and Old Boy Mr Ben Giraud, the final results
saw Bridgland House awarded 1st place, Summons 2nd, Steven 3rd, Robinson 4th, Macneil
5th, Schofield in 6th place, Derham in 7th place and Clifford in 8th.
Congratulates to Hans Anjou and Brian Kim (both Year 10) of Bridgland for their direction and
their adaptation called The Assassination.
At yesterday’s Assembly the 2015 Captain of Bridgland, Matthew Waters (Year 11), was
presented with the House Play Shield.
Each year, awards are also given for acting performance. The Best Actor award this year was
also presented at the Assembly to James Gordon (Year 10) with the runner-up Alexander
Bitzios (Year 11) being commended for his performance.

2015
Camberwell made a positive start to the Summer Season with many encouraging performances
over the weekend.
The First Tennis team faced last season’s runners up Ivanhoe in their second match for the
2014/15 season. Playing at Melbourne Park, home of the Australian Open, the boys were keen
to record a second win. Alek Harper and Stephen Chen (both Year 9) recorded two more wins
in their double matches, remaining undefeated as a pairing for the season. Singles matches
were extremely tight, with six out of eight sets going to a tiebreak. Unfortunately Camberwell
were unable to capitalise on their opportunities, eventually succumbing to Ivanhoe, six sets
to ten.
The 10A Tennis team beat Ivanhoe convincingly, winning 8 sets to 4. Camberwell’s dominance
at the net was pivotal in securing three wins in the doubles matches, the boys displaying
impressive composure to win three tiebreaks for the day.
The First Basketball team played encouraging, high quality basketball despite losing to Ivanhoe
on Friday afternoon. Camberwell made a strong start; however, the persistence of Ivanhoe
led to a ten point win for the home team. Max Harper and Stuart Blackie (both Year 11) were
stand out players.
Camberwell’s Cycling team took to the road, competing in a field of 56 male riders. Hamish
Webber (Year 10) led the way for Camberwell, finishing fourth overall while Peter Thorn
(Year 8) came 28th. A strong start for the team as they now set their focus on the Criterion
Race on the Saturday 8 November.
10A Cricket had a tense and exhilarating start to the season, defeating Ivanhoe with three balls
to spare. After initially struggling to dismiss Ivanhoe’s top order, Camberwell’s bowlers began to
find their rhythm, with Ben Niemandt and Thomas Finney (Year 9) making vital breakthroughs.
Set with the task of getting a run a ball off their 25 overs, Camberwell’s openers made a strong
start, Jack Graves (Year 9) batting with confidence whilst James Frampton (Year 9) made a
crucial 30 retired, guiding the team to an impressive victory.
The First XI Cricket side sought to build upon their promising start against Peninsula last
week. Playing Ivanhoe, Camberwell won the toss and elected to bat on a slow and tricky pitch.
A steady flow of wickets left the team reeling at 9/55 before Andrew Young, 50*, and Michael
Liu (both Year 10) put on 46 for the final wicket, Camberwell eventually posting 101 off their
50 overs. Michael Liu then backed up his batting effort with an impressive spell of swing
bowling, taking 3 for 18 off 8 overs. Lachie Powell (Year 10), 2 for 18 off 5, ably backed him
up; however, despite pressure mounting on Ivanhoe, they surpassed Camberwell’s score with
5 wickets in hand.
The First Volleyball team travelled to Dandenong where they played Trinity. Camberwell
started strongly, winning the first set with, captain, Tao Wang (Year 11) and Chris Kerdemelidis
(Year 9) playing well. The match proved to be a close one, Camberwell going blow-for-blow
with Trinity. The introduction of Nicholas Pahos (Year 11) in the third set proved effective as
Camberwell took a 2 sets to 1 lead; however, Trinity’s strength and experience proved too
much for Camberwell, with Camberwell eventually succumbing to the reigning Premiers.
Camberwell Kayakers got off to a great start last Saturday in their first race for the Summer
Season, racing on the Loddon River just outside Bendigo. The new paddlers raced very well for
their first race. The experienced paddlers led from the front with Gus Coleman and Karl Salins
(both Year 9), Hanze Hu (Year 10) and Jacob Hunting (Year 8) all winning their races. Captain
Andrew Holloway (Year 11) raced particularly well to win his U18 marathon.

Year 12 Examinations
On 9 September 2014 (last week of Term 3), current Year 11 students attended a presentation
where they were given information regarding their first assessment piece for 2015 - the
Presentation of a Point of View SAC, which occurs in the week commencing 9 February.
Students are required to choose an issue which has appeared in the Australian Media since
1 September 2014 and structure a 5 to 6 minute talk where they present a point of view in
relation to that issue. On Tuesday 7 October, our students attended a presentation by Ms Judith
Field on Direct Speech, which aimed to provide them with a number of practical strategies and
approaches to effectively structure and deliver the speech. Current Year 11 English teachers
will be working with their classes on this task this Term, and students will be expected to have
their speech fully drafted by the end of this school year. They will be using the Christmas and
January holiday break to refine the piece and your assistance in reminding your son to return
to school next year with his speech fully prepared and rehearsed is greatly appreciated. Please
feel free to contact me with any queries: [email protected]

On Wednesday we took to the local tracks for our Run/Walk for Koala Kids. For one solid hour
the boys completed laps of a set circuit, with some impressive distances covered by those who
elected to run. Several boys ran in excess of ten kilometres during the event, including Lachlan
Doehmann and Khalid Abbas (Year 6), Thomas Grave, Charlie Harper, Harley Beechey, Ryan
Box and Ryan de Kretser (Year 7) and Noah Marshallsay, Christian Chene, Jack Fitzgerald and
Nicholas Ioannou (Year 8). The sausage in bread and lollipop for lunch completed an excellent
event. We now ask that the boys collect the money pledged from their sponsors and return it to
their Form Teacher by the end of next week. My thanks to Mr Burke for organising the logistics
of the day, and to Ms Liz Ferentinos (mother of Arnie Ferentinos, Year 9, and an ambassador
for Koala Kids) for sourcing our food supplies. Thanks also to Mrs Elliott and our enthusiastic
team of parent helpers, who volunteered their time to prepare the barbecue lunch.
United Nations Public Speaking Competition
Lachlan Doig, James Gunasegaram (Year 7) and Michael Tan (Year 8) have been selected
to compete in the final of the United Nations Youth Association Voice (Public Speaking)
competition. We wish the boys well for the final.
National Touch Rugby Competition
Well done to Oscar Treacy (Year 6), who represented Victoria at the National Touch Rugby
Championships in Morwell last week. The round robin format saw Oscar involved in games
against teams from each other state and territory in the Under 12 division.
Queensland Open Water Championships
Our resident superfish Connor Xu (Year 8) ventured to Queensland over the weekend to
contest the Queensland Open Water Championships, which is a challenging five kilometre
event. Connor placed fourth in the Under 14 age group.
State Athletics Championships
Congratulations Lachlan Doehmann (Year 6), who claimed fourth place in the 800 metre event
at the State School Championships at Albert Park last Monday. This is an outstanding result
that now qualifies Lachlan to compete in the National Championships in Tasmania in late
November.
House Swimming Carnival
The House Swimming Carnival will take place next Friday, from 11.15am to 2.00pm at MSAC.
Parents and spectators are most welcome at the event. The competition for the overall House
Cup is fierce, and any of several Houses can still win, depending on the outcome next Friday.
It certainly promises to be a great day of competition.

The first round of Summer Sport went off without a hitch. The current Year 6 students tasted
CGS Sport for the first time, while at the other end the Firsts Teams competed for a chance
at AGSV Premiership glory in 2014/15. Firsts Badminton and Table Tennis had wins while
Firsts Volleyball nearly pulled off the upset of the season going down in five sets to last year’s
premiers.
Squash continues to enjoy their new competition being a part of Squash Victoria’s Saturday
morning Junior Pennant Competition. The three AGSV schools (Camberwell, Marcellin and
Trinity) compete against Squash Victoria clubs such as Mountain District, Lilydale and
Westerfolds. It’s a great initiative and the students are enjoying the competition and new
format, especially the doubles.
Badminton has changed its home venue with a move to Pro Badminton Academy in Blackburn.
There are nine purpose built courts which Camberwell is lucky to train on during the week and
that the AGSV use for competition on the weekend.
The Old Boys Cricket Team are playing the First XI in the last ever game on the KAO on
Saturday 22 November from 10.00am onwards. If you are interested in attending or even
rolling the arm over, email the Director of Sport for more information. Spectators are also more
than welcome to pop in and support the teams throughout the day.
Training resumes as of Wednesday 5 November for all teams both before and after school. The
last day of Summer Sports training for Term 4 is Friday 21 November.

Music
October has been a busy month musically. Two very successful Soirees; one for Brass and one
for Piano, gave these instrumentalists the opportunity for performance practise before their
music exams, and to complete the study of one or two pieces they have been working on. The
boys of the Middle School Orchestra and Band and String Orchestra (about 200 boys in all)
gave a wonderful and entertaining concert to nearly 400 Grandparents this week. The boys not
only enjoyed performing, but it gave them another chance to play some of the music they have
rehearsed so diligently during the year. The level of performance that these boys have attained
during the year is quite outstanding.
Also this week was the Twilight Chamber Concert with music selected and co-ordinated by
Mr Bob Wakely, combining chamber works and concerto movements. Soloists were Edward
Tan, Oliver Wong, Nelson Zhao, Adrian Xu (all Year 9), Harry Speagle (Year 10), Michael Xu,
Boris Chan, Justin Tu, Jerry Li (all Year 11) and Joseph Kim (Year 12). The staff and student
orchestra accompanied the boys with great care and sensitivity. The Brahms Clarinet Quintet
comprising of Nathan Fong (Year 10), Edward Tan (Year 9), Nicholas Wong (Year 10), Nelson
Zhao (Year 9) and Jonathan Duan (Year 10) was a highlight. A work of such sophistication,
complexity and requiring such profound musicianship was performed by these boys with great
finesse and dexterity at a level beyond their years and ages. The CGS Chorale added an extra
dimension with their sublime vocal sounds. Special thanks to those in Year 12 who came back
to be part of this concert and my thanks to all the boys involved, and who I am sure have
benefitted greatly from this experience, and to the staff for their guidance and support to the
boys. A most appreciative and delighted audience filled the Music Rehearsal Room.
The Year 7 Class Band Concert, which is every boy in Year 7 who learns a musical instrument,
will give a lunchtime concert on Thursday 13 November at 12.55pm in the Music School.
The final event for the year for Middle and Senior School is the Service of Nine Lessons
and Carols on Wednesday 10 December at 8.00pm at St Mark’s Church. The 90 members
of the choir have begun rehearsing the music required for this occasion. Do not miss it!

Friends of Library - Book Exchange
CGS Second-Hand Book Sale: Thursday 11 December 2014
It’s that time of year again and Friends of Library will once again be holding the popular
second-hand Book Sale in December. This is a great event on the school calendar but we need
lots of volunteers to make everything run smoothly. It’s a fun way to meet other members of
the school community, so if you can help we’d love to welcome you. See the flyer with this
issue of the Bulletin for how to volunteer...and look out for more information over the coming
couple of weeks.
Friday 11 November, 9.00am - Development Office
If you have an hour or three to spare on this morning, please join us to help collate book lists
and other important information for families as we continue to prepare for the Book Exchange
- and get our boys ready for 2015. Many hands make light work, so if you’re able to spare any
time to help, it would be very much appreciated!

Kangaroobie Meats – Beef & Lamb Sales
Direct to Your School
www.kangaroobiemeats.com
Camberwell Grammar School has been bringing students to Kangaroobie
farm and school camp for well over 20 years. Matt Bowker (1990), Old
Boy and owner of Kangaroobie, is happy to bring the farm back to the
School by offering the sale of high quality grass fed beef and lamb directly
to the School community.
How does it work?
It’s easy. Simply visit the online store and place an order at
http://www.shop.kangaroobiemeats.com/. Deadline for ordering is Tuesday 25
November at 6.00pm.
We will then bring your order to Camberwell Grammar, outside the Cafeteria on
Thursday 27 November at 3.00pm. You or your son can pick up the order
directly from us, the farmers who raised your meat.
Who benefits?
Your school – 5% of sales will go directly to the Friends of Performing Arts.
You and your family – Buying direct from the farmer means you can trust that
your food has been produced ethically and responsibly. Also grass fed products
are rich in all the fats now proven to be health-enhancing, including omega 3
and 6 fatty acids.
