Rowing News Issue No.7

On Saturday, the rowing club made a day trip to Melbourne to race the Head of the River. The event was attended by schools and clubs from all over Victoria looking to put a good performance in on the River Yarra. The Yarra is a very different stretch of water to the Sale Canal, with a slight tidal influence and significant stream; which impacts times, depending on how well crews navigate the course. Grammar were represented by senior and intermediate squads, with four quads and three scullers competing. 

In the morning, the senior girls coxed quad (Steph Poland, Lucy Harrison, Sarah O’Brien, Emerson Lowe & Ella Anderson) rowed a tough race and finished a very respectable 3rd. In the next division, intermediate girls and boys also raced coxed quads. The girls (Caitlin Baker, Liz Lawrence, Tess Maxfield, Alice Jones & Kate Hamilton) unfortunately had an accident when boating, resulting in some damage to the fin, which made steering the course very difficult. Nonetheless, their efforts impressed and they will surely bounce back at Black Mountain Regatta. The intermediate boys put out two coxed quads. The crews were; Andrew Gray, Matthew Patterson, Jake Holland, Tom Stewart (coxed by Ruby Sellings), and Harry Broad, Jack McGrath, William Lamb, Ronan Capraro (coxed by Ailish McGrath). The crews finished 2nd and 4th respectively in their category. The winners of this category were only 5 seconds clear of 2nd place. This shows how well our boys did, as they lacked the local knowledge of the Yarra (the winning crew train there). In the last division of the day, the seniors took to singles to wrap up proceedings. Steph Poland and Lucy Harrison represented the girls, whilst James Gerrand championed the boys.  Both Steph and Lucy had incredible races, putting in gutsy performances to finish 1st and 5th in their category – well done girls! James Gerrand found his rhythm early on and powered along the river to win his category by over a minute.

After a long day trip to Melbourne, we now look forward to our next event – Black Mountain Regatta on the 5th and 6th of December. This will be the first regatta that we will be sending novices to, as well as seniors and intermediates. Please refer to the email from Frank with information about this event for new rowers and families.

The McColl Club were in action once again this week, organising a film night on Tuesday to raise funds for the Rowing Program. Around 120 tickets were sold, making the night a huge success. The funds raised by the McColl Club go towards the maintaining and improving the boat club. They do a fantastic job and their efforts and support are much appreciated.

This Saturday, there will be an in house regatta with all squads. There will be a Christmas theme, as it will be our last Saturday training as a whole club before the end of term. Please bring some suitable Christmas attire and decorations for boats, as there will be a competition on which crew can look the most festive!

Schoolies trip to Rwanda

A group of Gippsland Grammar students have chosen to help those less fortunate in Africa for “Schoolies”.

Gippsland Grammar School Captain Amelia Vuillermin along with fellow classmates Kelsey Rettino, Ryan Worboys, Ellie Anderson, Cordell Lofting and Jaimie Mitchell have travelled to the village of Gahini in Rwanda to immerse themselves in community life and offer assistance where need.  This is the fourth consecutive year a contingent of Gippsland Grammar Year 12 students has embarked on such an adventure.  The students finished exams last week, attended their Valedictory service and celebratory dinner on Friday evening and then boarded a plane bound for the three-week overseas trip Saturday.  “Schoolies” is a graduation festival celebrated by Year 12 students throughout the nation.  For most it’s a big party.  Largely thousands of students converge on Queensland for the ultimate summer holiday, and for most it is their first holiday without family.  Gippsland Grammar and the entire Anglican Diocese benefits from a strong relationship with the African community of Gahini, in Rwanda.

 

School Photographer

School photographer Lisa Baker can often be seen working at official school functions, especially at this time of year with valedictories and end of year celebrations.  Her photographs help record important events for Gippsland Grammar, vital for now and in the future. These photographs are often used in a number of different ways – they can help promote the school, they might appear in school publications and sometimes they are just for the students and their families.  All photographs taken by Lisa are available as reprints.  It’s a service offered to school families and prices are very reasonable.

Simply visit www.lbphotos.com.au and use gg as the pin to access the school online album.
Photographs usually only stay online for about six months. 
If you have any queries about this service feel free to contact Lisa direct on 0427 567 404.

ISC News

This Term has been busy with Joy Reid and myself working closely with Year 7’s and 8”s in developing their information, literacy and digital skills.

With supporting skill development and guiding learning being an important focus of our ISC, I have thoroughly enjoyed having the opportunity to co –teach with our Year 7 History and Geography teachers this year. Through their investigations of Asia and Ancient Egypt, Year 7’s have learnt and practiced new skills which have included:

  • Developing their own questions
  • Note Making
  • Using Inspirations’ mind mapping tool
  • Accessing ISC virtual resource guides
  • Using copyright friendly resources in their presentations
  • Using Moviemaker as a presenting tool
  • Uploading tasks to the school portal Discussion Board.

It has been wonderful to see their progression in these skills during 2014.

It has also been rewarding for Joy and myself to work closely with the Year 8 English teachers this term. In their “Paired Reading” project, students have learnt how to customise and maintain a blog, use the web tool Voki, use copyright friendly resources only, create their own movie and embed all multimedia into their blog. Students have enjoyed the variety of tasks in this project. With reading being an essential life skill, this project was a great way to foster a love of reading and allow students to present their responses in a challenging and creative way.

In Week Six, all Year 7’s and 8’s had the opportunity to showcase their learning. It was also a requirement to peer and self -assess which students managed to do in a respectful and constructive way.

Victorian Premier’s Reading Challenge
Congratulations to our Year 7 and 8 students who have now completed their 2014 Victorian Premier’s Reading Challenge having read well over 3,000 over two year levels. They will be receiving their certificates shortly to acknowledge that they have read over fifteen books.

Josh Strauss in 8D took out the prize for having the read the most books overall – 124 books.  Josh also helped his class to victory with 8D taking out the prize for reading the most as a class – 586 books. This will be the second year this class of exemplary readers shall take out this prize. Congratulations, 8D.

Once again convenor, Joy Reid, has done a fabulous job keeping this six month program alive as she plays a key role in promoting a reading culture at our Garnsey campus. Many of our students have read voraciously during this challenge and the twelve students who read over fifty books celebrated their achievements at a Chinese Luncheon held at the Gippsland Dragon on the 20th November.
