Head of Garnsey Campus

The Year 10 students enjoyed a three day leadership program at Phillip Island this week. Developing leadership is an important part of a child’s education at the Garnsey campus and it is important that we undertake training with students as they enter their senior years in order to promote our belief that all senior students offer leadership within the School and wider community. Of course, some of the Year 10 students will be selected as Outdoor Education leaders to assist with programs for Years 7-9 year levels and some will nominate for selection as House Officials commencing when our Year 12 students finish early in Term 4; however, for others their leadership will be as role models in the School and in co-curricular activities.

The Year 10 leadership program involved a series of activities conducted in Mentor Groups which challenged students to think and engage with the qualities of leadership that they have and seek to develop. Initiative activities, responding in an emergency and some of the theory of leadership such as group development and leadership styles were addressed. Congratulations to all the Year 10 students on their participation in the program.

I was able to visit them on Wednesday and there was a great feeling of community and support amongst the students as the sun was shining on Phillip Island. . Thanks must go to the staff who assisted, organised and managed the program.  I look forward to watching these students as they continue to undertake their leadership journey at Gippsland Grammar.

Science Week 2014

This year science week experienced new lows. Minus 191 degrees Celsius to be precise. For the first time we had access to Liquid Nitrogen and what a fascinating substance it is. We had demonstrations on four occasions where we were able to freeze a number of common items like Flowers, rubber balls and fruit. Each shattered like brittle ceramics or glass. We watched as balloons reinflated themselves and balls and barrels were hurled into the air. We saw a magnet spin and levitate above a super conductor cooled by the liquid nitrogen. The final job of the remaining liquid nitrogen was to ice up some water to be used in the Head of Science’s ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’.

There were also activities in the chemistry lab with a ‘carbon tower’ grown by a rapid chemical reaction. Our planned Science Activity night was postponed due to both weather conditions and other unfortunate circumstances. This will occur before the end of term.

Results and certificates for the ‘Big Science’ competition also arrived during science week. The competition occurred late in term 2 and we once again had a number of excellent results achieved by students. Out of the 300 students who took part 97 Students achieved a Credit or better with 12 students achieving a High Distinction.

Dan Lee, one of the leading VCE students unfortunately missed science week as he was attending ‘Asian Science Camp’ along with a dozen or so other high achieving science students from across Australia. We look forward to hearing all about the conference and activities he was able to attend during this week.

East Gippsland Secondary Interschool Gymkhana

Five students headed off to Bairnsdale on Thursday 28th August for the annual gymkhana. Tamara Morris (Year 7), Priyanka Joshi (Year 7), Filly Lang (Year 8) and Genevieve Pyne (Year 12) made up the Gippsland Grammar team, with Alicia Gault (Year 7) in a composite team.

All riders did a terrific job. Consistent places in their Rider, Handy Mount, Showjumping, Activity and Games events, saw our team finish second overall. I’m still not sure whether the girls were more excited about second place or about the bags of chaff, the Horseland gift vouchers and the blocks of chocolate they won! (I think the chocolate prevailed!) Excellent performances in all her events saw Priyanka become Champion Year 7 rider.

Thank you to the parent helpers. The weather certainly contributed to a great day.

SEISA DANCE REPORT 2014

The SEISA Dance competition was held on Thursday 28 August at Beaconhills College in Pakenham.  This year the Gippsland Grammar team consisted of 46 students across Years 7-12.  We achieved first placings in all 6 categories of the competition and as such won overall with 209 out of a potential 240 points.  This was a unique achievement and one that we will all remember for many years to come.  It was exhausting for the dancers due to the 2 hour choreography workshop prior to the competition’s commencement but the students came away with some fantastic ideas from the contemporary dance exercises and sequences presented by the night’s two adjudicators.  

The 2014 Dance Captains; Georgia Dunkley and Georgia MacQueen, were both wonderful leaders of the team and I commend them for their efforts during the preparations for the competition and the evening itself.  Thank you to all of the students who showed initiative and wonderful co-operation throughout the entire rehearsal and performance period, including those who tried out for the team in 2014 but unfortunately did not make it through to the Pakenham event.  We bid farewell to many Year 12s who have experienced their final school Dance competition and it was wonderful they could finish on such a high note with an entertaining ‘Shrek’ routine!  Thank you also to all of those students who took on a role in choreography.  We had an enormously talented team of choreographers in Georgia Dunkley, Georgia Dixon, Elani Hughes, Georgia MacQueen, Aylin Rutherford and Amelia Vuillermin.  It is not easy to develop and teach a routine to your peers and this task was done with organisation and enthusiasm.  I was particularly pleased this year to see such dedication to the rehearsal process, particularly from those students who competed in two categories.

We were accompanied to Pakenham once again by Mrs Faye Kennedy and the students, and I, greatly appreciate her unfailing support and enthusiasm.  I would like to thank those family members who assisted with costumes, music, rehearsals, advice, support and transport.  Our thanks must also go to Ms Jenny Cumming from Leaps and Bounds Dance School in Sale for allowing us the use of her studio for some rehearsals.    I can’t praise all of our students enough for their behaviour on the night and their cooperation and enthusiasm during their preparation and their outstanding performances.
