FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Dear Parents, Guardians, Students and Staff of St Norbert
College
Our College Community Mass held last Sunday 15
February was a wonderful opportunity to welcome
new students and families to the St Norbert College
community and to celebrate our 50th anniversary.
Thanks are extended to Father Peter, Father Joshy, Father
Stephen and Deacon CJ Millen and to the many staff who
worked in the weeks prior and on the day to make the
Mass a success. Particular thanks to Mrs Megan Silva
and Ms Margaret Kyd, who coordinated the Mass and
the College staff, Ms Alicia Walter, the choir, musicians,
readers and members of the Student Ministry who
supported them. It was wonderful to welcome back to
the College past families of the College, some of whom
worked very hard in the foundation years to build the
grounds and facilities we enjoy today.
The Parent Information Evening for students new to the
College held on Tuesday 17 February was an invaluable
opportunity for parents to have an insight into the child’s
life at St Norbert College. The important message of the
evening; parents and teachers working in partnership
for the success of the students, is one focus for the
whole school community not only new families. Thank
you to Mrs Chrystelle Borrello Year 7 Coordinator, Mrs
Natasha Quinn Deputy Principal and Mr Mark Pavy, Dean
of Studies, Head of House, and all Homeroom Teachers
for the smooth organisation of the Parent Seminar. It is
important at the start of the school year to foster positive
working relationships between home and school. I
take this opportunity to remind parents if there is an
area of concern it is not only best practice, but Catholic

A PRAYER
God our Father,
the qualities I see lived out so well in some people
are a reflection of your own goodness,
and I know
that I have much to learn from other people
who reflect your image and likeness in different ways.
Inspire me
to respect others fully as my equals,
seeing and loving in them
what you see and love in them.
In Jesus’ name I pray,
AMEN

Education Commission of WA Policy to speak to the teacher or staff member concerned. I have attached the CECWA
Complaint and Dispute Resolution Policy at the end of the newsletter for your records.
As mentioned in the first newsletter for the year, the student’s results in 2014 were a credit to their commitment to
their studies and hard work. Last week the students who received Ad Omnia Paratus Awards, Academic Distinction
Awards or ten or more merits based on the Semester Two, 2014 reports were invited to a luncheon. Thank you to
Ms Erica Bursey for organising the luncheon and congratulations to the growing number of students achieving such
accolades.
The College House Swim Carnival was also held last Friday at Challenge Stadium. It was a wonderful day filled with
House spirit and determination. Congratulations to Magdeburg who were champions on the day but were not alone
in striving to do their best. Thanks are extended to Miss Mel Gore, Head of Sport, Mr Sheldon McIntyre, Head of
Physical Education and the PE staff, Heads of House, staff, parents and student helpers.
Last week marked the start of Lent with Ash Wednesday on 18 February.
This is a significant date in the Christian calendar; a season of penance,
reflection, and fasting which prepares us for Christ’s Resurrection on
Easter Sunday. The Church calls on us to seek mercy during the entire
Lenten season. The College celebrated the Ash Wednesday Liturgy and
distribution of the Ashes in House groups again this year. Thank you
to Ms Margaret Kyd Liturgy Coordinator for her organisation and the
Heads of House and Student House Captains for a lovely service. Many
students were moved by the audio visual presentation of our own Year
11 Pilgrims from 2014 serving the young orphans and underprivileged
children in India last year. They were truly “Prepared for All Good Works”.
A date for your calendar is the first Parent Seminar on Tuesday 3 March at 7.00pm held in the Br Patrick Doolan
Learning Centre. The seminar will be facilitated by staff at our College, Mrs Tracey Burgoyne and Mr Greg Hulshoff on
the topic of connecting to the Parent Portal (coneqt P). I strongly encourage all new families and those who have not
used the parent portal to attend. Please bring a laptop or personal device with you as you will have an opportunity
to log onto the parent portal during the seminar.
The College Open Day on Monday 9 March is fast approaching. Please invite interested family or friends to come
along to meet our students and to enjoy a tour of the College. More information is attached to this newsletter.
Towards the end of last week, families should have received school fee statements for the year ahead. Whilst every
effort is made to keep the fees as low as possible, the resourcing of the College is dependent on school fees being
paid. Please make every effort to honour your commitment to pay your child’s school fees. Families who have
difficulty with the payment of school fees are asked to make contact with Finance Officer Mrs Lindy Munnings in the
near future.
A reminder Friday 27 February (this week) is a student free day for St Norbert students. The College staff will be
involved in a Professional Development Program for the day. All students, particularly Year 11 and 12 students are
expected to use this day as a study day away from formal classes in the lead up to reviews and Interim Reports.
God Bless

PEER SUPPORT PROGRAM 2015
In 2014, all Year 10 students were trained as Peer
Support Leaders through the Health Education
Program. On Wednesday 25 February, our now
Year 11s facilitated an “Establishing Relationships”
session with the Year 7s in their Homerooms.
This session allowed the students to better
get to know each other, and strengthen their
relationships as the Year 11s assist the Year 7s
with their transition into high school.
STUDY WALL PLANNERS
All students should have completed their Student
Wall Planner. Parents/Guardians are asked to check their completion, sign the diary (page 21) and ensure that the
Wall Planner is hung in a prominent, visible place in the home. Replacement Wall Planners are available from Student
Services for $10.
ONLINE LITERACY AND NUMERACY ASSESSMENT (OLNA)
In Week 1.6, OLNA Testing will be held for students who have not yet met the the minimum standard of Level 3 of the
Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF). There are two ways to demonstrate the standard:
•
Prequalification through demonstrating Band 8 in Year 9 NAPLAN; or
•
Demonstrating the minimum standard through the OLNA. Students who achieve Band 8 or higher in Year 9 NAPLAN Reading, Writing or Numeracy assessments will be prequalified for that component and will not be required to sit the corresponding OLNA component. In preparation for these tests, students will be completing practice tests in English and Maths classes. Reading and
Writing sessions with Ms Francesconi are being held on Tuesday in the BP Forum from 3.30pm- 4.30pm. Numeracy

HUMANITIES
HELLO FROM HUMANITIES
Humanities has started the year with some new faces. Welcome to Mr Matt Price and Miss Caitlin Collins. We also
extend a warm welcome to Mr Patrick Ah Fong who joins us from the Maths Department.
The Year 7s are currently exploring the world of Ancient Greece. The Year 8s are discovering the exciting world
of Medieval Europe. Year 9 students are delving into the shocking world of slaves and convicts. The Year 10s are
researching ways for Western Australian towns to be more sustainable.
Our senior classes are hard at work. Mr Ah Fong has transformed the old music classroom to create a Business
Centre for the Accounting and Finance and Certificate 2 and 3 Business students. The Stage 3 Geography students are
completing fieldwork this week studying the changes of the Central Business District and Inner Mixed Zone of Perth
and Northbridge. We wish all students in ATAR and VOC Humanities classes a successful 2015.

ITALIAN
CARNEVALE
On Tuesday 17 February, Italian students had the opportunity to discover the meaning of this festivity, celebrated
predominantly in the city of Venice, Italy, but
also in Rio de Janiero, Brazil, as well as New
Orleans, in the United States.
“Carnevale” means the taking away of meat
and marks the end of winter (in the northern
hemisphere), but also the beginning of Lent.
For this reason, on the Tuesday before Ash
Wednesday people celebrate by wearing
masks and costumes, eating rich, fried foods,
throwing confetti and paper streamers and
generally “misbehaving”….knowing that from
the following day a period of fasting and
‘sacrifice’ begins.
Students were given an opportunity to have
some creative ‘fun’ and misbehave, throwing
coloured confetti and streamers in the classroom, as well as making a face mask in the true ‘Carnevale’ tradition…..
(much to the cleaners’ shock that afternoon!) The throwing of confetti symbolises the farmer’s sowing of the seeds
in the hope of a bountiful crop the following summer.
Grazie!
Ms D Tersigni - (Italian Teacher)

CULTURAL CORNER
HARMONY DAY
Harmony Day is a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home.
At St Norbert College, we have over 40 different nationalities that make up our
diverse community. We celebrate our diversity, from the traditional owners of
this land to those who have travelled from countries all around the world to be
here. In recognition of Harmony Day 2015, St Norbert College will be holding their
second annual Harmony Day Celebration. On this day we will be acknowledging
and embracing our multicultural identity in a whole school celebration as well
as upholding the sense of belonging and respect for everyone. On Thursday,
March 19, the College will host a number of activities that identify the various
cultures of the world. The events include a Liturgical Service, an International
Food Market, a Staff vs. Student International Rules match and a World Cultures
Performance. Didgeridoo music, Indigenous dance performances and African
drumming workshops will be held.
A senior student and a staff member will share stories about their heritage, giving
an insight to their cultural identity and their journey to Australia. Students are allowed to wear their traditional dress
to school on Harmony Day.
I would like to thank families who have contributed food for our International Food stalls. If you are interested in
assisting us in any way, especially through food contributions for our International Food stalls, please contact Colette
Miranda via email to [email protected]

MATHEMATICS
MATHEMATICS STUDY CLUB
Each Tuesday: 3.30pm to 4.30pm (Two Types)
1. Mathematics Workshops (All Levels) in P3 Run by Mrs B Murphy
This workshop is available to all students and goes through the fundamental concepts necessary to move forward
in their normal Mathematics classes. Active teaching and learning takes place. It is recommended for any student
with gaps in their understanding. Mathematics is a very sequential subject, and any areas not understood should be
addressed in order for students to reach their full potential. Students are welcome to come along with specific areas
of concern in Mathematics and have them addressed.
2. Mathematics Quiet Study in P2 Run by various Mathematics Teachers
The session is available to all students. It is a quiet study session with a Mathematics Teacher on hand to help
when needed. This is recommended for students who sometimes have issues with homework and need some extra
assistance.

VISUAL ARTS
MURAL
At the beginning of the new year a stunning new mural was
installed in Ludolph Court (the Year 12 Quad in front of Café
135). This beautiful work was designed by Jorja Belli (Year 8)
and hand cut by the Art Club regularly throughout 2014. It is
the first time the Art Club has worked with steel and they’ve
done a fine job. The mural
has been painted and
sealed with “Norbertine”
Blue. A special thanks to
all members of Art Club in
2014, to Mr Collins for his
advice and expertise and to the Maintenance Team for installing the work.
EXCURSION
Last week senior students in Visual Art, Design and Photography explored a
range of locations and arts events run by Fringeworld and the Perth International
Arts Festival. They sketched and photographed a huge variety of sights seeking
inspiration for their own works. The highlight was Subiaco Park where students
experienced a virtual exhibition of works that appear only when you download the
App of the same name and point your phone at a particular GPS point. This very
new technology is still on show and well worth a visit if you can get there.

SASJ 8/9 TOUCH
The boys kicked off their campaign last Wednesday against John Wollaston at St Norbert College. After originally
having 30 boys express an interest to play this season, we narrowed it down to 15 boys after a couple of training
sessions. John Wollaston were competitive early, but with the speed and experience of our Year 9 boys teamed with
the eagerness of our Year 8s, SNC ran out comfortable 9-4 winners on what was a very warm afternoon. Special
mentions to Ben Johnson who scored five touch downs and the Jansen van Rensburg brothers (MJ and Jaco) who ran
rings around the opposition.

CANONS BASKETBALL
GAME ON
The SSWA Senior Girls Basketball got underway on Monday 23 February against a traditionally difficult opponent in
Clontarf Girls Academy. With some senior girls unavailable due to injury and other commitments a team was formed
with heavy reliance on Year 10 students. With a large core group of girls fresh from the USA Basketball tour we were
quietly confident in our abilities. The game started off with Clontarf scoring the first few baskets and our girls taking
time to adjust. With some strong team play and smart decision making the girls were able to break apart the zone
and find open, uncontested shots. The second half was very positive as the Canons were able to capitalise on strong
defence and good offence and were able to runaway with a 41-16 victory.
Mr L Ford (Coach)
The Senior Boys Basketball team played Belmont City College in the first round of competition on Tuesday afternoon
the 24 February. The Canons had a very strong start to the game by applying defensive pressure in the back court
and forcing the opposition into early turnovers. The team from Belmont City College held their own throughout the
middle period of the game by playing an up tempo brand of basketball, however the Canons were able to withstand
this pressure and stretch their lead to 14 at the half-time break. The second half saw the Canons continue to work
hard and begin to limit the amount of passing turnovers, leading to better execution of offence. Through a fantastic
overall team effort the St Norbert College team ran out winners 45-22. Their next game will be Tuesday 3 March, at
Como Secondary College.
Mr S McIntyre (Coach)
WEEK 2 AND 3 RESULTS
SNC8
Although first games are often unsystematic and untidy, I was surprised by the high-quality basketball produced by the
young girls of SNC 8. They displayed a skill level beyond their age, their remarkable ball movement and impenetrable
defence being a testament to this. With their height and skill level, Year 8 Nes’eya Williams and Year 9 Savahna Nevill
dominated the rebounds, while Year 9 Nicol Dubert with her quick hands, led the team in steals. In the end, SNC 8
came out with a big win, beating the Dazzlers 77-16.
After the impressive start to the season for the girls of SNC 8, who showed great tenacity and skill level in their next
game against the Wildcats. Their opponent was a team composed of proficient players, many of who play district
basketball. A suffocating defence and dominating rebounds, put the Canons 15 points in the lead by the end of the
“Prepared For All Good Works”
9
half. The team continued to work hard for the remainder of the game, eventually winning by 25 points. Everyone in
the team contributed to the win. Special mentions go to Kayla Hartree, Felicity Plewright and Tayla Howley for their
great work in defence.
Clarice Antero and Sarah Duku (Coaches)
SNC4
This game brought a few challenges for the team as Juno Paragas was unavailable due to injury, leaving the squad
with only six players. Early in the first half, Mark Santos, one of the team’s top scorers landed awkwardly after
shooting over an opponent and sprained his ankle, leaving only 5 players fit to play. Julian Ramos, the team captain
stepped up, hitting three consecutive 3 point shots early in the half to give the team a big. Lennon Butler and Ivan
Nge provided a great defensive presence near the rim, preventing multiple attempts by the Cougars to score and
grabbing rebounds to release the guards attack on the other end. Jamie De Silva and Randy Fuentes played a solid
game as wing players keeping active on the defence to nab a few steals. The leadership of Julian also helped as he
made his presence known on the perimeter defence, getting multiple steals and converting them to points.
I was very impressed with how this team responded with the challenge they were given. I am very excited to see how
far this team will get this season. Final Score was SNC4, 57 to MM Cougars 32. Best Player: Julian Ramos
The next game was our first game against another Canons team. Unfortunately for everyone this was the day after
the Interhouse Swimming Carnival and all the boys were still fatigued. Mark Santos was not able to play as he injured
his ankle the previous week and Juno Paragas is most likely to be out for the rest of the year due to a torn ACL. So
with only a 5 man squad it would be tough coming out of this game with a win. The boys tried their best to make the
most out of the game, with Lennon Butler continuing to prove why he deserves to play with the older students as
he grabbed multiple rebounds throughout the game. Julian Ramos continued to lead the team by example, pushing
himself hard even though he was very tired. I appreciated the effort they put up against a very strong team.
Final Score SNC 4 v SNC 6, 21-82. Best Player: Lennon Butler.
Jan Ramos (Coach)
SNC3
On the weekend SNC 3 played against Kent Street. This game proved to be a physical encounter as Kent Street sported
it’s more experienced and bigger players. Despite our strong efforts in defence, the team struggled in offense, which
in the end was the deciding factor of the final result, SNC 3, 20 to Kent Street 43.
Best Players: Connor Young Free and Cyrus Tadena
Julian Ramos (Coach)
SNC9
Against a well coached opponent and with a limited amount of players available, the SNC9 girls had a difficult second
game of the season. The teams defensive efforts were effected due to the limited bench, but the offence flowed very
well and passing was of a hight standard.
The team had their chances to win the game, but with four minutes left in the game, the team was staring down
a nine point deficit, but just when all seemed lost Morgan Doecke caught fire and hit three 3’s in a row. After free
throws we were up by One. The girls pressured the ball and after playing great defence and not allowing a score and
getting the rebound, a silly mistake was made which ended up costing us the game. However Brandon and myself
where very happy with the effort, passion, intensity and heart that the girls played with. They did an outstanding job
given the circumstances.
Jordan Laing (Coach)
SNC5 v SNC7
Coming into the game SNC5 v SNC7 showed no nerves and both teams played with intensity as they both wanted to
win the game. It didn’t take long for SNC5 to show their dominance as they stormed away, with Point Guard, Aiden
Murphy an unstoppable game. In the end SNC5 was too strong and finished 57-22 winners over SNC7. Aiden Murphy
finished as the games top scorer with 31 points and Alex Stevenson scored 12.

Rainbows is a peer support program for children and teenagers living in a single parent or step family, or who have experienced a significant change and loss in their life (such as but not limited to: death of family or friend, moving country or state, illness or disability). When a change takes place in a family – whether it is death, divorce or separation – it has a profound effect on the whole family. Children, as well as adults, grieve over the loss of a loved one or place that was once part of their everyday lives. Grief is a normal human reaction to a significant loss. Frequently children are not able to express their grief verbally, so it surfaces in their behaviour, schoolwork, as a physical ailment or it affects their emotional development. Even those children who appear to have adjusted well are often struggling inside with different emotions of grief. The Rainbows program offered at our school provides the guidance children and teenagers need to work through their grief and move on to the healing process. It helps them to sort through their confusion, deal with their feelings, regain self-­‐
esteem and get on with life. The Rainbows Program consists of twelve sessions where small groups, in similar age categories, meet weekly with a trained facilitator. The group is bound by confidentiality, which fosters trust and provides a safe atmosphere. If you would like your daughter or son to participate in the program please contact: Deise Carvalho Psychology Services [email protected] 9350 5433 Join the
