Year 10 Leadership Camp

At Gippsland Grammar, we feel that all our senior students are leaders in different ways.  Even though many students may not see themselves in that way, many of the younger students watch and look up to them. It is because of this, last week all of the year 10 students headed off on a 3 day leadership program.  Although it started with a bump having to move the program from Forest Edge to Philip Island at the last minute, overall it was a great trip.

Throughout the program students rotated through activities with their mentor group.  The activities they participated in were: Basic First Aid training, a Leadership presentation, a scenario bushwalk, Initiative games, a teamwork session and the flying fox.  It was fantastic watching the students participating fully in these activities while working together facing some challenging tasks and obstacles along the way.

Not only did the students get to work on some great leadership skills they also got to spend a large deal of time with their mentor group.  Watching the students strengthen their friendships with each other is superb, knowing how much they will need each other’s support in the next couple of years ahead.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank some of the GAP students Clark Hillsely, Will Brougham and James Whelan for coming and giving a helping hand.  A huge thank you goes to the year 10 mentors Jenny Dyke, Robyn Davis, John Gaulke, Frank Mesaric, Chris Ray and Nick Kuch for the time and effort they put in.  I know how much the year 10s all appreciated having them there supporting them.  I would also like to thank our six year 11 leaders; Caleb Blok, Ben McAnulty, Ross Anderson, Holly Howes, Eleanor Riggall and Kelsey Weir.  In the last year these students have all helped out on different Outdoor Education programs with our younger students and showed some fantastic leadership skills.  Because of this they came on this leadership program helping the year 10s by leading by example.

Target Association Schools State Championships

On the 7th of September Jorjeana Anderson and Rylee Barling were invited to compete in the senior girls division of the Victorian Clay Target Association Schools State Championships in Bendigo. Rylee and Jorjeana were invited after they came 1st and 2nd respectively at the South East Zone Championships at Frankston. With 72 of the state’s best shooters also competing the competition was going to be tough. The girls shot their best under pressure, Rylee scoring 22/30 and Jorjeana scoring a 14/30. The school is very proud of the girls efforts and what they have achieved this year and hope to see them participating at such a high level again next year.

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.
