Dear Parents and Guardians,
“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation,
which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.” Confucius
23 MAY
Cattle Club : Maryborough Show
The road to wisdom is a challenging one. I think as parents we all bear the scars of experience, but in so doing
have certainly developed wisdom. Our sons are similarly on their path to wisdom garner knowledge and
enlightenment using those very same tools - reflection, imitation and wisdom.

As a school community we are called to develop wisdom as well. To ensure that the path to developing young
men of good character, robust abilities and a discerning intellect includes these three key growth tools.
Experience is the daily challenge of class, of relationships and of emotions. Imitation is by providing great role
models in our staff and also in of older students as they present models of behaviour and conduct and finally
reflection challenging who I am, what do I do and why. This third one is often difficult for teenagers and our
spirituality and formation programs are catalysts to reflective practice but the recent student mental health selfreflection survey was a very important method of allowing students the time to ask“How am I going?”.
The results of the survey have been presented over the last three newsletters with analysis of the data and ideas
on how as a College we will respond to areas of concern. This analysis has two remaining weeks and I certainly
hope parents have garnered good information about your son, the Nudgee College community and the value
of formation and positive wellbeing in your sons’lives. Past issues are available for your review. In our survey boys
were able to reflect and articulate upon their teachers, their peers, school life, their coping abilities and how they
are supported. They could also tell their stories; their experience or witness to bullying and if ever they have been
called upon to challenge it, the notion of being a bystander and how they responded to that call.
There were many wonderful results but I’d like to share your son’s thoughts on his teachers. Boys reported that
their teachers first and foremost wanted them to succeed that they seemed to enjoy teaching and Nudgee life.
That their teachers cared about them and were interested in who they were. Over 95% of the 554 respondents
indicated this of the people who are charged with the daily care and education of your child. But there were boys
who reported feelings of negativity and disappointment. We are constantly mindful of this and address this as
best we can. Accepting less than perfection allows us to relax and be satisfied. Reality says we may never be at
100% but as a community we will continue to focus on and professionally develop our staff so that they can
always be at their best and achieve their own professional goals. We always knew, but now have it confirmed, our
teachers are our greatest resource.
In conclusion – why do we bother? How does a students attitudes impact on the educative function of school
and his 8 year journey fromYear 5 toYear 12.To explain I’ll draw on the wisdom of 18th century rights and freedom
author and activist Thomas Paine - “I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress,
and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience
approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.” Thomas Paine
If education is the ultimate goal of St Joseph’s Nudgee College then it is our sole purpose to form young men
that graduate with a firm heart, a strong conscience and one whom holds his principles till his death. As each
boy departs to his next chapter he has been truly educated and truly understands that to be‘real’he must always
remain Signum Fidei.

We are an Easter People and alleluia is our song!!
We continue to live out our Easter calling in the liturgical season of Easter. With only two more weeks until Pentecost, we are
reminded that we live in hope, and break open the meaning of the resurrection of Jesus. The resurrection is not just something that
happened for Jesus 2000 years ago. It is something bringing to life goodness, graciousness, mercy and love, that in the end, heals
all wounds, forgives all sins, and brings deadness of all kinds of new life.
In the Easter season, let us remind ourselves that God never overpowers. God’s power in this world is never the power of force, of
speed, or physical attractiveness or of brilliance. Instead, God’s power is more muted, more helpless, more shamed, more humbled,
more marginalised, more of service. It’s language it pure love, only love and always love.
It lies at a deeper level, at the ultimate base of things and it will in the end, gently have the final say. This is the good news of the
resurrection of Jesus and thus, as an Easter people, alleluia is our song!
Mother and Son Lunch and Edmund Rice Dinner
This weekend the some staff at Nudgee College will attend the Edmund Rice Dinner at the Brisbane Convention Centre. This dinner
is organised by Edmund Rice International to raise awareness and funds for a variety of relief funds run by the Christian Brothers in
various parts of the world.
On Sunday, the Seniors of 2014 will share lunch with their Mothers at the Annual Mother and Son Lunch at Victoria Park Golf Club.
All Seniors must wear full school winter uniform with blazers to this function.
Emmaus Retreat – The Year 9 Retreat
The Year 9 retreat is held next week on Thursday 29th May. All Year 9 parents have been emailed information about this retreat. If
you have not received an email please contact the Edmund Rice Centre.
Boys are expected to be at school on Thursday to participate in this compulsory day of retreat and reflection. This Emmaus Retreat
allows our Year 9 students to take time out of their busy schedule to reflect upon their prayer life and become aware of their God
amidst their lives. This retreat is one of the important elements of the spiritual development provided by the College.
All students will gather at the McKennariey Centre at PC and board buses for 4 different venues. The retreat will conclude with the
students being returned to the College McKennariey Centre at 7.00pm. Please make arrangements for your son to be picked up at
this later time.
The students will be divided into house groups and attend four different venues as follows:
Barrett and Duggan
Santa Teresa Spirituality Centre, Ormiston
Fogarty and Ross
Mercy Place, Bardon
Riley and Tierney
Emmaus Centre, Banyo
Magee, McKenna and Shaw
Riverglenn, Indooroopilly
It is an expectation that all Year 9 students attend this retreat as part of the holistic education
program provided by the College. Students are to wear free dress with closed in shoes and to
bring with them a hat and water bottle.

Everything is “On The Line”
Over the past 18 months the College has made a very conscious and planned move toward developing technology to support
learning. Many College activities occur “on the line.” For anyone who has watched the movie The Internship, you will know I am
incorrectly referring to the internet and everything being “on line.” One of the main characters in the movie is struggling to work
with computers, google and the internet and constantly refers to things being “on the line.” The movie is a light comedy and
did not get great reviews, but it does paint a great picture of the divide that exists between the youth of today and some of us a
little older who are having to work hard to understand technology and keep up with the continual change. Nudgee College has
undergone significant technological changes in recent times. These include:
The introduction of a system of Continuous Online Reporting. At any time of the year a parent or carer is able to see when an assessment task is due, the assessment criteria, the result and a comment relating directly to the task providing feedback on their son’s performance.
Digital summary reports, the first one to be issued at the end of this semester, that provide a summary of the semester’s academic progress.
Google calendars for each student, which can be viewed by parents and caregivers, allowing them to monitor homework and assigned tasks. This has seen the SRB replaced by the online calendar.
The introduction of the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program. This program aims to improve student engagement and
communication, enables peer interaction and extends the place and time of learning, not restricting learning to the classroom.
It is clear that technology is evolving at a rapid pace. Students today are adept at using mobile touch screen technologies such as
iPads and smart phones, and social media such as Facebook, Twitter etc. The College is continually looking to incorporate these
technologies and even aspects of social media in the classroom to improve student motivation and learning. Because of the rapid
evolution of technology, current research is limited and can become outdated in a few short years as the technology changes.
What is not changing is the students’ widespread use of these technologies and the use of social media on a daily basis outside
of school. Research has suggested that implementing technology to enhance and improve student learning creates a positive
learning atmosphere for most students.
Typically, as far as Hollywood movies go, the main characters in The Internship overcome the technological divide that exists
between them and their younger colleagues and learn how to use the technologies available to them to advance their careers. I
would encourage you, if you haven’t already, to go on the line and use the google calendar, take advantage of the online reporting
system and stay in touch with the College through the website. It can only be a positive for the boys to see that we are all lifelong
learners. And please, if you are having any issues with the College technology, contact us and let us help you.

Reflections of a Nudgee Boarder
Over the last two weeks, we have hosted representatives from EREA who have come to speak to a wide range of staff regarding
Nudgee and how it operates. They asked the boarding team today to describe what the boarding houses feel like and also what the
boys are like. I thought I’d start by sharing some of the responses from other Heads of Boarding Houses and my own thoughts. We
described our boarders as being welcoming, spirited, funny, having a great sense of pride in their college, loyal and good mates.
The actual houses were described as being calm, friendly, welcoming, caring and a community or family. I was extremely proud to
have been given the time to reflect on what we do and how privileged I am to be able to care for you sons. That is how we feel as
staff here in Boarding - privileged to be a part of the lives of so many fine young men.
What will be even better from next term is that we have physical surrounds to match the quality of staff and the boarders. Stage
One is due for completion on the 16th July which is the first week back next term. This will mean Hodda and Murphy boys will be
moving some time after that. Whilst it will be exciting to move we will need all boarders to take everything with them at the end
of the term. This will ensure builders can access where they need to and also so the boys aren’t taking a few years worth of built up
gear with them into the new buildings. Please start planning how you will empty your son’s room over the next month.
Boarding Page
Again, please look at the Boarding Page for any news or information regarding boarding here at the College. Also, I’d encourage you
to use your sons’ Google Calendar to help him be organised and on top of things leading into the second half of the term.
Boys’ Education
Boys get criticised a lot for not being good communicators, being destructive, lacking the ability to sit still for long periods of time
and for under estimating the amount of work they need to do whilst over estimating what grades they will receive. Ever noticed
that? Sometimes this is absolutely true but regardless, they need our help and our understanding. If you think you need help or
would like to read further on the topic of boys, please look up authors like Steve Bidhulph, Dr Ian Lillico and Dr Michael Carr-Gregg.
They all provide excellent material, stories, advice and suggestions that will really help you and your son.

Junior School Assembly this week.
This week at the Junior School Assembly we celebrated two areas of
excellence: our Big Brothers and Principal Award recipients.
The Junior PC groups are truly blessed with the most wonderful and
dedicated Big Brothers a Junior School could ask for. This week on assembly
we recognised the enormous contribution they make to our youngest
students. I asked each PC to write comments on the Year 12 boys and time
and time again the message was clear, they are great role models. The Junior
School boys have limited interaction with the older students and these young
men certainly ensure their PC each day is a positive experience. I thank them
for their continued commitment to our youngest students.
“So far you have been the best Big Brothers and I’ve had so much fun. I can’t wait for the fun we are going to have in the rest of the year
and I hope you keep it up. I hope you enjoy it with us.” (Year 5 student)
Principal Award Recipients Term 1
This week on assembly we also acknowledged our
Principal Award recipients for Term 1. These students have
demonstrated a willingness to give their best in all facets of
their learning. I congratulate the following students:
Tyler Wolfe 5C
Rowan Burton 5D
Declan Townsend 5H
Maximus Morrow-Woods 5R

Year 6 Excursion
This week as part of our Year 6 Religious Education Unit students had two
very different religious experiences. We visited the Jewish Synagogue in
Mary Street followed by a celebration of the Eucharist and tour at the
Cathedral of St Stephen. As this is the spiritual home of Brisbane Catholics
and also the birth place of St Joseph’s College, Gregory Terrace, from which
we developed, it was indeed a wonderful day. For boys to see much of
what we have discussed in class in both the Synagogue and Cathedral was
indeed rewarding. It was a wonderful sight, and was acknowledged to me
by many members of the congregation, to see over 120 Nudgee students in
full blue and white, front and centre at our Cathedral.

Cross Country
Last Friday we hosted the weekly competition, with the GPS teams being joined by runners from St. Patrick’s, St. Columban’s and
Nudgee Junior. Races from 10 years through to 17 years were contested over the afternoon on a wet course thanks to a half hour
downpour just prior to the meet. The Primary Nudgee boys had great numbers and ran well on the home course. In the 10 years
Alex Kluck, Henry Cliff and Malachi Tuck scored a trifecta, and Lewis Cammack won the 11 years boys also.
Scoring in the Secondary section was close, with the afternoon seeing Nudgee winning the 14 years and 16 years, and coming
second in the 13, 15, and Opens. This amounted to a close meet win from GT and BGS.
The following boys were in the top ten places. Hayden Cotter, Stephen Lean and Ryley Robertson in the 13’s, Nelson Birogi (1st) and
Ben Molineux in the 14’s, Michael O’Sullivan and Fin Martinez-Bennett in the 15’s, David Lean (2nd), Hayden Barrett, Yousif Birogi and
Jack Donovan in the 16’s, and Jordan Pizzica (3rd) and John Lean in the Open 6km.
Congratulations to all the boys on some fine running.
A huge thank you to all the parents and staff who braved the wet to man the officials posts, and to those who helped in the canteen.

Nudgee College V Churchie
Last Saturday saw some very close matches across all of the grades. The 8A’s fought hard all day to eventually lose a very tight
contest by two games while the 10B’s team of Andrew Deshon, Campbell McCoy, Lewis Begg and Myles Andrew forced a 34all draw
with their Churchie opponents. Both the 10C’s and 10D’s won their matches with the team all working well together in the doubles.
The 16A’s were also victorious and didn’t drop a match all day against the Churchie team. The 5A’s team of Zachary Paulik, Eamon
Gerrard-Stace, Declan Townsend and Edward Launchberry also won again showing that they will be a force to reckon with this
The firsts four took the match to the more favoured Churchie team and were two matches all after the doubles however could not
reproduce that form in their singles to eventually lose six matches to two.

Nudgee College Art Dimensions
Vibrant Brisbane artists’ Kylie Farrelly and Amanda Russian will bring a local perspective to this year’s Art Festival. The Opening Night
Gala will be the best opportunity to secure a piece of art by one of these extraordinary Feature Artists.
Kylie Farrelly is Brisbane born and raised and taught Art as a Secondary School teacher in Queensland High schools. Since having her
children she has established her Art Studio Gallery in Teneriffe. Kylie works mainly in acrylic using a bold colourful palette to capture
the energy she draws from our vibrant city. Kylie, well known for painting recognizable locations within Brisbane’s landscape, will be
painting a “Nudgee Scape” at the Opening Night Gala, which will be offered as one of the many prizes available on the night .
Two Storys by Kylie Farrelly
Amanda Russian, also raised in Brisbane, is a professional artist who has been exhibiting since 1997. She is very accomplished in
oils but enjoys pastels equally. Her art portrays the natural environment integrated with every day activities such as bushwalking,
camping, and fishing. Her love of colour and texture and use of light and shade bring to life these landscapes on canvas.
What about Me by Amanda Russian
Alongside these acclaimed artists will be works of Art from previous winners of the Art competition as well as a variety of local artists
competing for this year’s prizes. Our Nudgee College Art Students, Years 5 to 12, will have their work on display at the Festival. The
Nudgee College Cultural Arts Committee invite all Nudgee families past and present, friends and the wider community to support
this impressive Annual Cultural Event.
