Gippsland Grammar Remembers

Remembrance Day is an opportunity for us to pause and reflect on the impact of war on our lives. As a teacher of Year 12 Global Politics, my students and I have spent a lot of time this year analysing the Civil War in Syria, the Ukraine-Russia conflict and the impact of terrorism from non-state terrorist organisations like Islamic State and despite best efforts to provide analysis in an objective way, it is often quite distressing to consider the enormous loss of life which is occurring as we sit in our beautiful surrounds in the newly refurbished Room 14. For me, Remembrance Day allows us to pause and remember not only those Australians who died in World War I and subsequent wars, but peoples the world over who still suffer in war.

Remembering and learning from the past is important. I take this opportunity to invite families to be part of an important project, the results of which, will form the central display of our 100 years ANZAC service in 2015. I invite every school family to research and submit a story about their family’s experience in World War I. Many of you will have family who were Australian servicemen and women in the war but they may also have been in other countries, in service or civilians. I hope this will be a great project that families can work on together. I was fortunate to visit Gallipoli and see the grave of my Great Great Uncle James Alfred Anderson who served in the 8th Light Horse regiment at Gallipoli, died in the Battle of the Nek made famous in the film ‘Gallipoli” and is buried at Anzac Cove; he will be the subject of my story. Throughout the next 6 months we will include information about this project in our newsletter and I would love to hear about your progress in researching your family’s connection to this historic event.

Below is a beautiful prayer for peace which we read at our Garnsey campus Remembrance Service held at the flagpole in our Quadrangle.


Let us pray for all who suffer as a result of conflict, and ask that God may give us peace:

For the service men and women who have died in the violence of war, each one remembered by and known to God;

May God give peace

For those who love them in death as in life, offering the distress of our grief and the sadness of our loss;

May God give peace

For all members of the armed forces who are in danger this day, remembering family, friends and all who pray for their safe return;

May God give peace

For civilian women, children and men whose lives are disfigured by war or terror, calling to mind in penitence the anger and hatreds of humanity;

May God give peace

For peace-makers and peace-keepers, who seek to keep this world secure and free;

May God give peace

For all who bear the burden and privilege of leadership, political, military and religious;

Asking for gifts of wisdom and resolve in the search for reconciliation and peace.

May God give peace

O God of truth and justice, we hold before you those whose memory we cherish, and those whose names we will never know.

Help us to lift our eyes above the torment of this broken world, and grant us the grace to pray for those who wish us harm.

As we honour the past, may we put our faith in your future;

For you are the source of life and hope, now and forever. Amen

Staff Sunday Soiree Delights Large Audience

On Sunday 9th November music staff and friends presented a delightful Sunday afternoon concert in the beautiful Chapel of St. Anne with its wonderful acoustics. Performers in the 80 minute concert included both music and academic staff who are fine musicians as well as musician friends. The concert ran uninterrupted and afterwards performers and audience were treated to a delicious afternoon tea provided by our wonderfully supportive Friends of Performing Arts or FoPA. Those gathered, and it was quite a large audience, were unanimous in their praise of a variety of music styles as well as the excellent performances. It was also a great opportunity for parents and a number of students, as well as the general public to enjoy the excellent musical skills of the Gippsland Grammar music staff and their invited friends.

The afternoon began with Dan McKimm presenting two Jamie Cullen songs accompanied by David Harrington on kit and Grammar students Martin Pang and Ross Anderson on piano and bass. Maths teacher Joel Black, piano teacher Lynette Biggs from our Bairnsdale Campus and retired staff member Suzanne Morris presented major works by Brahms, Chopin and Percy Grainger, while English teacher Penny Monger was accompanied by Joel Black in a delightful blues and IT specialist Geoff Stagg entertained with an extensive Carcassi waltz on classical guitar. Joel Black also joined Colin and Rosemary Iversen on violin and cello to perform a typically Edwardian salon waltz by Coleridge-Taylor and Brad Cruickshank took our breath away with two wonderful exhibitions of brass virtuosity on euphonium and trumpet, accompanied by Julie Lockhart in one and his own CD backing where every instrument was pre-recorded by Brad.  Brad Cruickshank was joined by Dan McKimm and Serena Jefferis to perform a Brass Trio and in turn Serena was joined by Alison Dunn and Colin and Rosemary Iversen to give an account of an Irish jig.  

Our official school accompanist, Julie Lockhart, also teamed up with Serena to perform a very fast Hora Staccato on sopranino recorder and together concluded the concert with a comic Flanders and Swann piece, A Word On My Ear. All in all, this was a thoroughly entertaining afternoon and we hope to be able to present one or two such concerts in 2015. Special thanks to Serena Jefferis for undertaking the coordination of the concert and to Sue Bryant for doing the programme and a whole lot of behind the scenes helping out.

SEISA Round 5 - 13 November 2014

Junior Boys Basketball
GG: 44 defeated STP: 16

After a late start due to St. Pauls being late, the boys took to the court and jumped out of the box well. It was a solid first half helped by some impressive steals and baskets from the ever polished Jack Allman. We finished the first half well in the clear. The second half saw an outstanding overall effort from the team with Jack Allman and Kyle Dunkley the standouts on the day. It was a great team effort that saw the margin blow out to nearly 30 points. Great season boys and good luck in the final next week!

Junior Girls Basketball
GG: 17 defeated by STP: 26

This week the Gippsland Grammar girls’ basketball team played a strong team from St Pauls Warragul. At halftime the scores were even, but St Pauls Warragul pulled away to win 17-26 their way. Olivia and Tayla Walsh have been consistent throughout the tournament, but this games standouts were Claudia Todd and Lucy Deller. Well done to all of the girls for a great few games!

Junior Boys Tennis
GG 6 sets (40-games) defeated STP 2 sets (28-games)

Today we travelled down to Warragul and won our first game of the season. It was great to finish off the season with some success. Mr Ray would like to thank all of the members of the team for their efforts and they would obviously like to thank him for his time and dedication to the team. The results on the day were as follows:

 Junior Boys Cricket
GG: 2/136 defeated by STP: 9/138

We travelled down to Warragul to play on a small and quick ground. What a match it turned out to be. Losing the toss we were sent in to bat, posting a very respectable and impressive 2/136 off our 20 overs. It was a great batting effort with Bryce Worboys retiring on 36, Jeremy Gunther retiring on 32, Peirce Kidson-Purry making 17 and Matt White/Cody Stedman finishing off the innings with 9 not out and 10 not respectively. Heading into our bowling innings we were full of confidence. However what was to come nobody could have guessed. Kyle Van Ray retired on 35 not out for Warragul in the 4th over when the score was on 40. We then managed to restrict St Pauls to 9 for 60 before Kyle came back in to bat. Kyle ended up making 111 not out, leading St Pauls to victory in the 18th over. It was very disappointing however it was a great game played in really good spirit. Our standout bowlers were Ben Burrowes who took 4 for 12 off 4 overs and Mitch Evans who took 3 for 8 off two overs. Bad luck boys, but we had a great season and hopefully can have a win in the final next week!

Junior Girls Softball
GG: 8 defeated by STP: 9

In an extremely tight game at home, we went down 8-9. Some standout players were Sidney Churchman who displayed some great pitching, Kiara Stanton with some awesome work at first base, Isabelle Shelton catching well as usual and Mae Ross fielding at a high standard. It was a narrow defeat after leading by a slender margin all game! Bad luck girls!


Rowing News Issue No.5

It has been a quiet week around the boat sheds with the year 9 rowers being away on elective camps. However, the remaining intermediates have had a busy weeks training along with the seniors and novices. We hope that the year 9s have enjoyed their time on camp and will be ready to jump back into rowing to prepare for the Melbourne Head, our next event.

The Melbourne Head is taking place this weekend, on Saturday 22nd November. Arrangements for a mini bus to take competing rowers there are being finalised. However, if you wish to make your own travel arrangements with family or friends then please notify the rowing department and make sure you are on site for 7:30am Saturday morning, ready to help with unloading the trailer.

The Melbourne Head will only be attended by Senior and Intermediate crews. We are looking to bring some novice crews to Canberra, for Black Mountain Regatta on 5th and 6th December. This will be an exciting opportunity for our new recruits to compete in their first race before the end of term.

The McColl club were in action last weekend, fundraising at Holey Plains Homestead open day, running a food and drink stall. It was a sunny weekend, with thousands of visitors from around Gippsland exploring the gardens and homestead. We really appreciate the efforts of the McColl club for taking the time to volunteer and contribute to the running of the stall.

For those of you who aren’t already aware, the McColl Club are hosting another fundraising event for the rowers on the 25th November. The plan is to go and watch The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 at the Sale cinema at 6:30pm. There will be a meal along with a raffle on the night. The McColl club ask the help of any rowers who are able to provide donations for the raffle. Raffle Donations can be left at the rowing office or the rowing sheds. If that doesn’t suit,contact Linda Poland 0416510869 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .Linda will be at the boat sheds on the 15th of November, which will be the first opportunity to buy tickets for the event.

An update on the “NO HAT, NO ROW” situation:- rowers have been very good recently at bringing down hats and we haven’t had any issues. We have a stash of spare hats, courtesy of the McColl club, but still encourage you to bring your own hats as there aren’t enough spares to go round for all. It is very important all rowers wear hats on the water to reduce risk from heat illness and sun burn.
