Student Leadership
As a Catholic school in the Edmund Rice tradition we aspire to be faithful to our four touchstones. These touchstones are
part of our foundation statement promulgated by Edmund Rice Education Australia. From this guidance the College creates
its own direction and under the values of Community, Justice, Respect the College has developed operational plans under
the pillars of Partnership, Stewardship, Identity, Learning and Leadership. These come together as part of the holistic
approach to education at St Virgil’s.
One of the pillars of St Virgil’s is leadership and at the completion of the voting process for student leadership, I am pleased
to announce the 2015 College Leadership group.

Grade 10 Exams
The Grade 10s yesterday commenced their final exams for 2014 and it was very pleasing to see the amount of effort that was
put into preparation for each of these assessments. Boys are encouraged to continue their diligent efforts and we look
forward to them finishing their final two exams next Monday.
Canberra Trip
This week our Grade 6 class have been on their annual trip to Canberra. They have been the ‘right royal celebrities’, being
invited to the inaugural address in Parliament of the Indian Prime Minister, getting photos with the Indian Secret Service
and participating in some War Memorial activities with the Australian Cricket Team. For those following them on Twitter
(@svctas), there have been surprises every day with their celebrity spotting. The trip has been a great success and it appears
that the boys are very much enjoying the warm weather being put on in our Nation’s capital.
Board
St Virgil’s College Board of Management met earlier this week and as always, the Board heard the normal suite of reports
around the management of the College. This month the particular focus was on the ratification of a number of Board
Policies. If anyone would like to peruse these, they are available via our College website. I thank those members of our
community who have volunteered as part of our sub-committee process and we look forward to welcoming a number of
new members onto our committees and Board next year.

Many parents will have noticed the amazing African craft items for sale at the Fair.
The goods are manufactured by the parents of the children of the Mary Rice
Centre as part of a micro-finance project at the MRC which enables parents to
produce some income to support their family. Manufacturing occurs on-site at the
MRC further strengthening the sense of community at the school.
The College has items such as bags, Massai blankets and jewellery on sale at the
Front Office at Austins Ferry. Please call in and pick up a wonderful Christmas
present whilst supporting the children of the MRC and their families.
Liberating Education
We open hearts and minds, through
quality teaching and learning
experiences, so that through critical
reflection and engagement each person
is hope-filled and free to build a better
world for all.
In the spirit of Blessed Edmund.

Awards Assembly
We look forward to a very special occasion tomorrow (Friday), when we formally acknowledge excellence among many of
our students in a range of areas. This assembly is one of the highlights of the year and we look forward to welcoming a
number of special guests. As this is a formal occasion, Formal Uniform is compulsory.
Immunisations
The last of the Grade 7 and 9 Immunisations were conducted on Monday. If your son was absent for these please contact
your GP or your local council.
COLLEGE CHAPL AIN
BR PETER FLINT
I came across an article on “Cafeteria Catholics” in US Catholic. I am more than aware that Australia’s religious culture is
very different to that of the USA. (“The Australian Soul.” by Graeme Bouma is an excellent read.)
The whole article in US Catholic,
stood out for me.
http://www.uscatholic.org/cafeteriacatholics is well worth reading. This paragraph
"Last July, Pope Francis made headlines for joining Vatican workers for lunch in their cafeteria. The cafeteria is a beautiful
symbol of what our church community could be like. The Church should not be like an elitist restaurant with high-minded
hosts jealously guarding the guest list. Invitations to dine should not depend on who we are or who we know. We should
not be asked to leave because our manners, dress, or food preferences do not hold up to some exclusive club rules.
We should be a Church more like a cafeteria, offering welcome hospitality to all who are seeking spiritual nourishment,
community, and respite from their worries and labours. But, please, let’s not ruin the meal by judging what others have on
their trays."
A Blessing Bowl
At the conclusion of the Staff Mass this morning, Fr Felix blessed and dedicated the Blessing Bowl made by Mr Greg
Bannister. Whenever items had to be blessed in the past there was a bit of a hunt around for a glass bowl and a bush branch
to use as a sprinkler.
Greg used his woodworking skills to make a bowl with handle and matched a brush.
There will be lots of Holy Water to go around at the Blessing of the Bags at the start of next year.

Tasmanian Basketball Primary School Championships
Last weekend a very enthusiastic SVC Grade 6 Basketball team travelled to Burnie for the Primary School Basketball
Championships. Drawing the best teams from all over Tasmania was going have some real talent on display. The boys were
enthused thanks to their recent first placing in the Southern Region Championships and were keen to go well in Burnie.
The weekend stared well with hard fought victories in their two pool games which placed them on top of their section.
After a very tough semi-final the boys unfortunately went down by six points after a very close and tough game. This meant
a playoff for third place and the opportunity to have a top three placing after a tough weekend. The boys played some great
basketball in this game and were able to secure a win in the playoff and finish the weekend in third place overall.
A big thank you to Anthony Stewart for coaching the boys and to Michael Moschogianis for his contribution as Team
Manager. A big thank you to the parents for supporting the boys throughout both legs of the Championships.
Congratulations boys on a great effort!

Canberra Trip
As you are reading this week’s edition of The Star, Grade 6 are probably on their way home after a fantastic few days in the
Nation’s Capital – Canberra. We will publish a couple of highlights here but will share additional recounts next week. The
boys have certainly had some great experiences that they should remember for some time into the future. After a very early
start on Monday morning, the boys landed into Canberra mid-morning and were immediately whisked away for a tour of
the embassies and high commissions.
Monday, even though very interesting, will prove to be a bit mundane compared to what was to happen on Tuesday. The
boys were given the opportunity to be part of the welcome of the Indian Prime Minister to Parliament House and to also see
the pomp and ceremony surrounding such an event in the House of Representatives – along with a very loud gun salute!
After this almost once in a life time opportunity the boys ventured up to the war memorial. Once we had participated in
our education programme the boys had some time to investigate the memorial more fully. The boys had some
opportunities to be photographed with members of the Australian cricket team whilst they also undertook some official
duties. Another experience for the boys to remember!
Overall the boys have had an unbelievable experience this week, one that they should remember for many years to come.
They have been very well mannered and respectful of everyone around them whilst they have travelled from venue to venue
with many compliments being passed on to that effect. Thank you to Mrs Chambers, Mr Waugh and Ms Showers for their
helping out on the Canberra trip.

Junior School Celebrations of the Arts
On Wednesday, December 3, all families are invited to our Arts Evening where the Grade 5 Band will perform followed by a
display and auction of art created by all the boys. All families are invited to join with us to celebrate the Grade 5 Band’s
achievements for 2014. Please have this date marked on your calendar as further details coming home very soon.
Art – Christmas Cards
Boys, under the guidance of Ms Stary, have been busily putting the finishing touches to this year’s Christmas Cards. The
images that the boys have produced have now been turned into beautiful photos and finished off with the help of some
elves (some very generous mums) who placed them onto the fronts of Christmas Cards. This year’s Christmas Cards have
been sent home with the boys, along with order forms. If you haven’t received them as yet, please check your son’s bag or
contact the Junior School Office.

iPads at the completion of Grade 10 with no extra charge.
Grade 10
It is anticipated that students will be given the opportunity to purchase their iPad at the end of the year. The cost is yet to
be determined, as we are still negotiating end-of-lease arrangements with these iPads. There will be further advice given
when this is known. Students not wishing to purchase their iPad will need to return the iPad, along with the charger and
cover. Parents will be invoiced for any damage or missing parts.
A Meeting with Minister Shayne Neumann, Shadow Minister for Aboriginal Affairs
Ms Claire Graham
Last Friday the Shadow Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister Shayne Neumann, visited St Virgil’s College to meet with
the Aboriginal Reconciliation Group and the 2015 student leadership team in the Library. Minister Neumann was here to
discuss the ‘Recognise’ campaign which is the people’s movement to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
in our Constitution and is working towards changing the Constitution by referendum in 2017.
The boys asked the Minister some extremely intelligent and insightful questions and were very attentive. He was excellent
with them also and the boys requested that he come back and talk to all of our students next year when he visits Tasmania
again.

Grade 7 Drama
Miss Imogen Gray
Grade 7s are currently working through a process Drama unit using the picture book Varmints. This book explores issues
such as sustainability, displacement and invasion. As part of this unit students are able to use costumes to assist them with
characterisation. Needless to say, if you are walking past the drama room or JPC don’t be surprised to witness students in
pretty dresses and high heels. The boys have had a lot of fun with this unit and being able to dress in clothing that they
wouldn’t normally wear.
Here is what some of the boys had to say:
Kerem Turhal: “Most boys seemed to enjoy dressing up in costumes”.
James Shepherd: “I have a new appreciation for high heels- I don’t know how women do it!”
Alex Welsh: “I enjoyed playing the invasion game ‘Lemonade’ and dressing up in costumes, especially the Russian inspired
clothing”.
Maurice Noisier: “I chose drama as my major next year because I loved dressing up”.
Grade 7 Geography Excursion
On Tuesday November 25 boys in Grade 7B and 7C will be participating in a Geography Excursion as part of their studies in
the unit: Place & Liveability. Boys will need to wear their full sports uniform and School hat. They will also need to bring a
water bottle and food for Morning Tea. We will be returning by the beginning of lunch, so boys may still order from the
canteen. The trip is departing at 9.00 am and returning at 12.30 pm. If you or your son, have any questions concerning this
excursion, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Tristan Cripps or Ms Maryanne Saxton-Hillier at the Senior School.

Grade 9 Cricket
Coyle-Clingeleffer Cup
St Virgil’s College 4-85 (Jarrod Kaye 55n.o.)
Defeated
St Patrick’s College 10-84 (Declan Waddington 3-3, Brad Percey 1-8, Austin Keeling 1-9, James Graham 1-5)
On Tuesday the annual Coyle-Clingeleffer Cup cricket match was held at St Patrick’s College in Launceston. In its third
year, St Virgil’s was yet to taste defeat and the boys were keen to ensure that our record remained. Captain, Declan
Waddington, won the toss and elected to bowl first and all the bowlers repaid him with a disciplined display which ensured
the St Patrick’s team was never able to score with any ease. Wickets were shared between all bowlers, however, Declan did
finish with the impressive figures of 3-3 and a smashed stump from his off-spin!
Despite the small total all the batsmen knew scoring runs was going to be difficult, and so it was with some early wickets
ensuring some tense moments as we struggled to score. However, a decisive partnership between Jarrod Kaye and Reece
Williams of 54 saw us race to the total once we were on top of the bowlers. Jarrod in particular played a fine innings,
working very hard early on to see off the new ball and then accelerating when scoring became easier.

Sailing - The Admiral Signals!
Monday’s sailing was cancelled due to a howling gale - winds too strong for the skill level. Last night looked good, until we
got to the water’s edge and found a strong sea breeze coming in. There was a certain level of trepidation amongst the brave
lads. Although we had seven of the said brave lads present, only two boats were launched and only those with "reefs in the
main.”
The trickiest part of the evening was actually leaving the pontoon, the second tricky part was returning to the pontoon. The
third part was straying upright in the strong sea breeze that gradually died as the evening went on.
There were a number of firsts in the evening. The first brave lad to fall out the back of a boat shall remain nameless - I
promised Henry that. The first capsize was with Lucas at the helm. I rated a capsize as a larger loss of “Wagonwheel
Points” than a fall-out-the-back-of-a-boat. There was an extended debate about this judgement. All fearless lads recovered
well after their immersion.
Present with us as first timers were: Charlie, Hayden and Daniel, all joining St Virgils next year. They all rated the evening’s
experiences as 10/10 and they assured me the threat of not getting a WagonWheel had nothing to do with the rating!
I think we are going to have a Regatta before the end of the year to show off some skills. Peter Higgs is putting some
thoughts together and expect details very soon. There is some debate as to whether a Fall-out-the-back-of-a-boat event will
be included along with a rating for the most spectacular capsize. Henry volunteered to judge the Capsize and Lucas the
Fall-out-the-back. We’ll see?
In spite of what seems imminent, there were no collisions.

Grade 8 Stepping Up Evening
This week marks six months since the Grade 8 Stepping Up evening. On the night Bill Jennings, from Time and Space,
mentioned that a great way to ensure that the conversation held that evening between the boys and the significant male
mentors in their lives was to get the question sheet out later in the year and have a follow up chat. I hope that many boys
and the significant ‘older fella’ will take the opportunity this week.
