Term One, Week Eight
Dear Parents, Students and College Community,
Earlier this week, Wednesday 25 March, we honoured Emmanuel Day. It was a
fantastic occasion where the students and staff began the day with the celebration
of Mass. We were privileged to be joined by members of the Mater Christi parish
and parents for Mass. I am particularly grateful to Fr Bryan Rosling, Parish Priest
of Mater Christi Parish, who celebrated Mass for us. During Fr Bryan’s homily he
reminded us of the significance of our College name and its connection to our
The day was full of fun and we were blessed to have beautiful weather to celebrate
our College Feast Day. I thank Deputy Principal – Mr Joe Cordina, our House
Coordinators – Mrs Deanna Catalano, Mr Phil Oddie, Mr Kieran Gherardi, Miss
Sarah Payne, Miss Amy Morris, Mrs Kate Winfield, Campus Ministers – Mrs Marie
French & Miss Miranda Dempsey and our Student Leadership Team for their hard

work and organisation to ensure that we all enjoyed Emmanuel Day for 2015.
Interim Reports will be distributed to students in the last week of Term One on Wednesday 1 April. Whilst
students will receive their Interim Reports to take home, parents will be
able to access them electronically on SEQTA. With the Reports will be
information regarding the Parent Teacher Conference which is scheduled for Wednesday 29 April in Term 2. The Conference is a great opportunity for parents to meet the teachers to discuss the student’s academic progress.
Today we welcomed Hammond Park Catholic Primary School (HPCPS)
as they participated in their annual Sports Day. It was fantastic to see
the HPCPS students enjoy their day in front of so many parents,
grand-parents and friends. My thanks to our staff and students who assisted in making HPCPS Sports Day a
great success. The weather for the HPCPS Sports day was perfect and I hope that this is the case for our
College Cross Country event next Thursday.
God Bless,
Mr Leo Di Gregorio
NAPLAN Year 7 and 9
NAPLAN testing begins on Tuesday 12 May (Term 2, Week 4) and will involve students in Years 7 and 9 at the
Requirements for Year 9
All Year 9 students were spoken to during Week 7 to discuss the new requirements for gaining a WACE and
achieving Secondary Graduation. The Year 9 NAPLAN tests take on greater significance for Western Australian
students and this article is designed to highlight the importance of the testing, why Year 9 students need to take
these tests seriously and what the College and parents can do to help students gain success in the tests.
From 2016 onwards one of the requirements for gaining a WACE and achieving Secondary Graduation in Year 12
is to demonstrate a minimum standard of Literacy and Numeracy. The minimum standard has been defined as
achieving Band 8 or 9 in each student’s individual Year 9 NAPLAN tests. Students who achieved the bands in
these tests will be considered as having achieved the minimum standard. Students who do not gain Band 8 or
above will be required to sit the Online Literacy and Numeracy tests (OLNA) commencing in 2016.
Those students required to sit the OLNA test will have two opportunities to meet the standards in March and
September in 2016. Consequently, if students do not meet the standards they will continue to sit the OLNA test of
each proceeding Year until they achieve the standard. Students who do not achieve the minimum standard by the
end of Year 12 will not gain a WACE meaning they do not meet the requirements for Secondary Graduation.
The College will be providing learning opportunities, practice, support and assistance to students over the coming
weeks during Term Two in preparation for the NAPLAN testing.
Parents may find more information at http://www.nap.edu.au/naplan/parent-carer-support/parent-carersupport.html and sample tests at http://www.nap.edu.au/naplan/the-tests/the-tests.html
Should you have any queries concerning any of the above please feel free to contact me at the College.
Mr Vince Bellini
Deputy Principal (Year’s 7, 9, 11)
Term One Interim Reports
Students will receive their Term One Interim Reports as a hard copy on Wednesday afternoon next week. The
Interim Reports will display indications of how the students are performing with their “work attitude and habits”, as
well as how they are coping with the academic content of their subjects/courses.
Please note that some teachers will have requested interviews with parents/guardians on the Term One Interim
report. These interview will take place on our Parent/Student/Teacher conference day on Wednesday, 29 April.
Further information about how to book interviews with teachers using the school’s PTO (Parent Teacher Online)
system will come out to families shortly.

Deputy Principal (Year’s 8,10,12)
Emmanuel Day Celebrations
Today we celebrated the Feast of the Annunciation as the school’s
commemoration of Emmanuel Day. It began with a lovely mass
celebrated by Fr Bryan. The students read beautifully and the band
and choir made the occasion special.
We would like to thank Fr Bryan and all members of the Emmanuel
community for making the mass a wonderful celebration.
The rest of the day continued with drama, sports and a great sense of
community as you can see in the images below.
Miss Miranda Dempsey
Head of RE and Campus Minister
Last week on Friday 20 March Emmanuel’s ACC Swim team competed in the ACC “D” Division Swimming Carnival
at HBF Stadium. All our swimmers put in a fantastic effort and competed at a very high level. Overall, Emmanuel
finished in 5th position, with a total of 869 points.
A special thank you to Miss Kerry Reynolds, who was the ECC Swim Coach for the squad this Year. Miss Reynolds
displayed a high level of enthusiasm towards all the training sessions, which all our students responded to as they
worked tirelessly in the pool. Nearly half of our athletes swam a better time on Friday than they did in the ECC
Carnival three weeks ago. This mass improvement reveals the importance of swimming training and how beneficial
Miss Reynolds was as our swim coach. I would also like to thank Mr Phillip Oddie and Mr Alex Conway for driving
the bus and assisting with the early morning swim training sessions.
There was a strong emphasis on performing as a team, and gaining points for the College on the day. However,
there were some exceptional individual performances throughout the carnival. The following students excelled on
the day in their respective age groups.
Kevin Kalember (12) - Open Boys Champion
and ECC Swim Captain
Dustin Atmadjaja (7) - U13 Boys Champion
Alyse Tarbotton (10) - U16 Girls 2nd Place
Renee Khan (11) - U17 Girls 3rd Place
Connor Bull (8) - U14 Boys 3rd Place
Jessica Chandler - (12) Open Girls 4th place
and ECC Swim Captain
Jacob Fitzgerald - (9) U16 Boys 4th place
All results can be viewed at the following website
and I want to congratulate all of our competitors.
Well done!

ACC Swimming Carnival
Our Year 7 spectators had a wonderful
day supporting our ACC Swimming
team last week at the interschool
The team appreciated their loud
support and cheers which spurred
them on in their events.
We look forward to making this an annual tradition for our Year 7’s.

Senior Super 8’s Cricket Carnival
On Tuesday of last week, Year 10 to 12 students
competed in the Super 8’s Cricket Carnival at Harold Rossiter Park.
We nominated two senior boys and two senior
girls teams to compete in their respective
competitions. All the students were excited to play
the nine other schools, hit runs and take wickets.
It was also a good chance for students to take a
break from their studies for a day and refresh their
The boys competition was fierce and the
Emmanuel (B) boys did very well finishing 6th
overall in a twelve team pool. Our Emmanuel (A)
Girls team put on a dominant display in the girls
competition going through undefeated and
winning the title of the best girls team on the day.
Congratulations to the Emmanuel (A) Girls team on a terrific
performance and well done to all the students that participated on
the day. The sportsmanship shown on the day from all students
was second to none, and everyone displayed a positive attitude
no matter the outcome of their game.
Thank you to Mrs Winfield – coach of the winning girls team, Mr
Ryan and Mr Gaynor for coaching the teams on the day and
doing a fantastic job.
Senior Basketball Carnival
It was a big week of sport for our senior
students at the College with the first taste of
basketball for the season getting under way in
the form of the Peel and Harbour League
Basketball Carnival held at Mike Barnett Sports
Complex in Rockingham.
On Thursday of Week 7, we took a boys and
girls team to the carnival to play against some
well respect schools in the region. The boys got
off to a terrific start beating Seton College by 1
Throughout the rest of the day they were competitive but failing to win another game. The Senior Girls
demonstrated wonderful basketball skills and came away finishing 2nd in the their competition. This qualifies the
Senior Girls to compete in the semi-finals competition next term. Congratulations to the senior girls and senior
boys who put on such a great display of basketball and College spirit.
Thank you to Mr Edwards who coached the Senior Boys and Ms Jermy who was coaching the Senior Girls.

Emmanuel Year Nine Academy Footballers in the Community
Over the last six months our relationship with South Fremantle Football Club has
become very strong. They have used our school grounds to train their Colts and
Warrior 16’s over the preseason, and in turn they have supported us with a variety
of resources. This relationship has further aided our Academy students as South
Fremantle Football Operations Manager, David Depane, has asked if two of our
Academy students would make themselves available for each League game to
run water for the players.
The two students selected for last weekend’s League game were Brodie Bates and Riley Millar. They met David an
hour before bounce down, in front of the South Fremantle change rooms, and were instructed of the expectations and
tasks for the game. It provided a fantastic opportunity for them as it not only provides some community service hours
that they have to complete each Year, but it also gave them an insight into how a league footballer prepares for
Not only did our students run the water but they also had to study a League player that plays a similar position and
they are to write a report on their findings.
Here’s what Brodie and Riley said about the experience:
Brodie said “It was a great experience and I would
love to do it again anytime soon. The atmosphere was
really good and something I would suggest for anyone
to do.”
Riley said “It was an awesome experience being able
to go down to the change rooms at half time and
before the game to see how all the player prepared to
go out onto the ground. Being so close to the action
was awesome as well and it was great to see how
hard all the players went at the ball and how smart
they played. Having the opening round was great and
it was a very good contest. I can't wait to do it again.”
I am very proud of the boys for their effort and the way
they conducted themselves and I look forward to
receiving similar feedback for our next two students,
Jayden Ramshak and Connor Dawe, who are heading
out to Lathlain Park for South Fremantle’s away game
with Perth.

Year 12 Maritime Excursion to Carnac
Our Year 12 Maritime students recently traversed their
away around Cockburn Sound onboard our College
vessel “Success”,
supported by
Cockburn Sea
Rescue vessel
“Avail IV”.
Students plotted a
course using charts at school, and then put theory into practice by setting
waypoints and navigating the
vessels some 28 nautical miles
around the Sound. The local
sea-lions on Carnac Island put on a
show for the students, and next stop was navigating the entrance to
Herring Bay on the northern
end of Garden Island. Also a
quick visit to Dome Port
Coogee and a run through the
Australian Marine Complex with
lots of zig-zagging as students
perfected steering compass
courses. With a reasonable
swell running on the day, it was a great experience for our students to
fine-tune the skills learnt
whilst acquiring their
Skipper’s Ticket.
Students were also able to interact with technologies such as RADAR
and FLIR on the rescue vessel which gave them a greater
appreciation of how they work. Whilst onboard we took responsibility
for all radio communications which the students monitored with great
The only grumble on the day from students was the fact that we didn’t
get to fish some of the great ground that was showing on the colour
sounder. Perhaps next time!

Bush Rangers Learn about Western Shield Conservation
All this week the Year Nine Bush Rangers classes have been visited by Mr Stephen
Crane, an Education Officer from Nearer to Nature. He has been teaching the
students about the conservation program called Western Shield – a program that
consists of conserving our native fauna through a number of different ways.
Mr Crane spoke to the students about the various parts of the Western Shield
program such as monitoring through trapping, microchipping and baiting for cats and
foxes. Students learned how
to set the traps that would be
set out in the wild and how to
microchip a native animal.
Students also had a chance
to monitor motion camera
pictures taken in the South
West and had to identify the
animals that had triggered
the cameras. These animals
ranged from echidnas, kangaroos, wallabies, cats and quolls.
Students are now working on identifying native
animals from photographs in the wild.
Thank you to Mr Crane for coming in and teaching
the Bush Rangers classes about Western Shield.

victorious and won
their trials. The
students from both
sides were marked out of 165 points. Justice League and
Mockingbirds - both combined Years 10 to 12 students, were
up against
Year 11s
comfortably beat Corpus's teams by almost 20 points. The
Executive Authority- also a mixed Year 10-12 team, had it tough as
their fixture was against a strong Year 12 Corpus team but
managed to beat them by over 2 points.
Overall, our students were very confident in how their carried
themselves in court and did Emmanuel very proud.

Attention: Year 7 Students and Parents
You are invited to apply for Emmanuel’s Gifted and Talented Program
Emmanuel Catholic College offers a specialised Gifted and Talented Education
(GATE) Program for Year 7 students. Entry to the program is by invitation and offers
are made based on external testing results, academic performance and teacher
The GATE Program commences in Week 1 of Term 2 and runs during Period 3 on a
Wednesday; it runs for the duration of the Year. Students will be withdrawn from
class during this period and complete the GATE Program. As the College timetable
rotates on a Wednesday the students will not miss the same class each week.
To gain entry into the Gifted and Talented Program, students will need to be nominated by either a parent/guardian
and/or by a teacher. Nominated students will then sit the ACER General Ability Test (AGAT) – a standardised test
that assesses numeracy, literacy, problem solving and reasoning skills. The test takes 45 minutes and will be
conducted on Thursday 26 March during Period 2. Students will then be offered a place in the GATE Program
based on the testing results, academic results and teacher feedback. Please submit all nomination forms by the end
of the day Monday 23 March.
If you would like to nominate your child for the Gifted and Talented Program please discuss this opportunity with your
son or daughter. I would strongly encourage all interested students to apply; there’s nothing lost by sitting the test
and much to gain!
Nomination forms will be emailed to all Year 7 parents and are also available from the GATE Office and Year 7 Form
Teachers. They are also available here.
Specific details about the testing will follow once the nomination process is complete.
