Welcome back everyone to the final, action-packed Term 4!
The annual Next Step survey provides comprehensive information about the employment, study, and life choices of Year 12 completers approximately six months after completing Year 12 in Queensland Government, Catholic and Independent schools. The survey, conducted by the Department of Education, is conducted six months after the end of each school year when students will have accepted tertiary education places.
80.6% (87 out of the 108 Year 12 completers in 2020) completed the survey. Of those, 88.5% continued in some recognised form of education and training. The most common study destination was bachelor degree. A further 9.2% transitioned directly into paid employment and no further study. There were 2.3% of respondents not in the labour force, education or training.
The Year 12 completers from St Margaret's continued in education or training in 2021 in the following areas of study:
Total (students) ** 77 —
28.7% or 25, Year 12 completers from St Margaret's were enrolled in a double degree, combining two bachelor degrees into a single course of study.
I am just following up on an earlier newsletter in which I wrote about the concerns about young people and vaping. The Lung Foundation Australia (LFA) has launched a campaign, Unveil what you inhale, to inform young people, parents and educators about the dangers of vaping. From 1 October 2021 it will be illegal for Australians to access e-cigarette products containing nicotine without a prescription. In theory, this should effectively put an end to adolescents’ access to nicotine-based e-cigarettes. However, analysis of e-liquids commissioned by LFA found 100 per cent were inaccurately labelled and 20 per cent contained undeclared nicotine. A range of other substances toxic to humans was also detected.
On Tuesday this week we held our prize reading assembly. At that assembly, students in Years 5 – 12 receiving awards for the following events were announced:
The 124th Speech Night and Prize Giving Ceremony (12 October 2021) is fast approaching and excitement is building as students anticipate the end of the year and all that it brings.
This year we will again be booking tickets for Speech Night online through QPAC booking system. Please note that due to COVID restrictions, our venue QPAC is only able to have 75% audience capacity. In order to reduce our audience capacity, we now only require prize winners and all Year 12 students to attend the evening. All non-prize winners will be invited to watch the event via the following livestream link: https://www.stmargarets.qld.edu.au/speech-night-live-stream
Please note, each prize winner can only have 2 guests attend the evening. Parents may request one ticket or two tickets maximum. If at any time you reserve a ticket and you no longer require it, please email Lisa Watson on email@example.com.

Welcome back. We hope you found time for rest, and recreation and are ready for the term ahead. Term 4 is a short term, filled with very special events and transitions. One of those transitions is farewelling our Year 12 students as they prepare to sit their exams and move into the next phase of their lives. This week we have our Senior Leaders’ Induction, which is a wonderful opportunity acknowledging the new leaders for 2021/2022. We ask for God’s blessings to support these students, as they step into their new leadership roles.
Last term I talked about the need to be flexible as we respond to the constant changes we have faced during this pandemic and always watching the QLD government announcements for the latest restrictions. In response to changes from last term, this week we look forward to our reimagined Soaring Upwards and Primary Arts Spectacular. Please check any school messages regarding changes we have had to put in place for our Year 12 celebrations next week.
A prayer for our students as they return to school.
Gracious God, at the start of the term, we are beginning something new. New things can be exciting. New things can be scary. New things can be wonderful. New things can be confusing. God, help the students remember that you are always with them. You are with them when things are exciting, or scary, or wonderful, or confusing. You are with them every day. Loving God, please our students feel your presence as we begin the new term. Amen.

The Boarding House is back in full swing for Term 4. As always it was lovely to see the smiling faces of the girls returning to their home away from home with wonderful stories of their holidays. Many of the girls were kept busy with various sporting events: however, they all thoroughly enjoyed the time they were able to spend with their families.
As with everywhere in the school it is a very busy term here in the Boarding House with many significant events, particularly for Year 12. Celebrating Graduation next week prior to knuckling down for External Exams will be a very emotional time for the Seniors. Even though the Seniors don’t officially depart the Boarding House until the end their of External Exams, the Boarding House Dinner planned on Monday night will give us all the opportunity to say goodbye to these lovely young women and also give them the opportunity to farewell their extended family of “Sisters”.
After next week they officially step down from their roles as Seniors leaving the Year 11’s to step up into their Leadership positions and start their journey of leading the Boarding House.
We wish all our Boarding Seniors the best of luck with their busy schedule and know that the have the full support of the Boarding House over this very busy time.
Prize Reading Assembly
This week we started the first day of term acknowledging students at the Prize Reading Assembly. As part of this assembly, we announced academic awards for 2021. Please find below details of how awards are determined.
Determination of Honours Awards
Honours awards are given for excellent academic achievement based on results from Terms 1, 2 and 3 of a given year. In Years 7-10, students who achieve a Grade Point Average of 13 or above with no overall result lower than a B, will receive an Honours award. These awards are calculated using the results of all subjects which are studied for three or more lessons a week. In Year 7 where some subjects are studied on a rotational basis, only those subjects studied in the first rotation are used in the calculation of these awards. In Year 8, the Arts subjects that are studied for 2 lessons a week are included in the calculation for Honours Awards. In Year 11 and 12, Honours awards are based on the grades awarded using the provisional subject results for the internal summative assessments in each subject. The Year 11 and 12 Honours are calculated using the results of the students’ top 5 subjects.
Determination of Commendation Awards
Commendation awards are given in recognition of excellent engagement in learning. They are based on the level of application demonstrated in class and at home, as well as the attitude displayed in all contexts. The Attitude to Learning result is recorded on the report card. In Year 7, these awards are calculated using the results of all subjects (except Science of Learning). To receive a Commendation Award a student needs to receive an average score of 4.5 or higher over Terms 1, 2 and 3. Students who receive an Honours award are not eligible for a Commendation award

Students who receive an Honours award are not eligible for a Commendation award
Determination of Year 10 Subject Prizes
A subject prize is awarded to a Year 10 student who receives the highest subject result based on three terms of work. If more than one student receives the highest subject result the decision is made by the Head of Faculty in consultation with the year level teachers to review the collection of assessment and make a judgement based on the quality of the assessment folio to deem who should receive the prize. To receive a subject prize all assessments must be completed.
Determination of Internal Year 12 Subject Prizes
A Year 12 Internal Assessment Subject Prize is awarded at Speech Night to the student who receives the highest provisional subject result based on the internal assessments. Note that percentage results are used in determining these awards for the Maths and Science Subjects. If more than one student receives the highest internal subject result from Unit 3 and 4, the cumulative result from Unit 1 and 2 in that subject will be used to determine the prize winner. To receive a subject prize all internal assessments must be completed.
Determination of the Internal Assessment Dux of the School and the Proxime Accessit to the Dux of the School
The Internal Assessment Dux of St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School will be awarded at Speech Night. This award is presented to the student in Year 12 who has attained the highest internal assessment subject results across 5 subjects. The Proxime Accessit to the Dux of the School is awarded to the student who has attained the next highest internal assessment subject results in that Year 12 cohort. The determination of these awards is based on students’ subject results at the completion of the summative internal assessment period for Unit 3 and 4. This subject result will be calculated by adding together the three internal assessment results for 5 subject results. To be considered for the awards, students must complete all three assessments for five subjects. Subjects are not weighted. In order to distinguish candidates for the final award results from Unit 1 and 2 may be considered. If it is not possible to distinguish between two students both shall be awarded the Internal Assessment Dux or Proxime Accessit to the Dux prize. The decision as to the Internal Assessment Dux and the Proxime Accessit to the Dux of the School shall remain confidential until the presentation at Speech Night.
Supervised Study Sessions (SSS) will operate out of the Senior Library on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Each session runs from 5:00pm to 7:30pm, with students having the option of purchasing dinner from the Boarding House for $10 (served at 6:00pm).
For students attending these sessions after an afternoon of sport, transport is available to and from Windsor Park. For those staying on after school to attend SSS, the Senior Library is open until 5:00pm prior to the commencement of the study sessions.
Dates for the final term of 2021 Supervised Study Sessions are below (please note that bookings open the first day of each term):
11 October - 18 November (except for 12 October due to Speech Night and 28 October due to the moved RNA holiday)
To book, parents will need to log into Flexischools and select ‘Supervised Study Sessions’. Bookings are limited to 25 participants each night and when a session is full no further bookings can be made. Bookings are essential and should be made in advance (and prior to 9:00am on the booking day SSS is required) to ensure a place is available. If dinner is required, payment must be paid at the time of booking and this option selected in Flexischools.
During these sessions, girls work with supervisors to organise a plan of study for the term. This involves looking at their assessment calendar and planning how to ensure they are prepared for their next lesson and assessment. The main goal of SSS is to assist students to revise work covered so far and support and extend their understanding of learning from lessons so they are prepared for assessment. It is important that students arrive on time and check in with the supervisors to get their name marked off and then sign out when they are collected by their parents. Please note that Year 12 students are not permitted to use the Study Centre for Supervised Study Sessions.
The Leader’s Induction Service held on Thursday proved to be a wonderful community event which celebrated our current Year 11s on their appointments as senior leaders. These students will now walk alongside our Year 12 students as they mentor them for Term 4 ready to take full reign once they leave. We look forward to their Prefect’s Assembly next year where these seniors will unveil their theme for 2022.
On the first weekend of the September holidays, Year 11 St Margaret’s and Year 11/12 Churchie students amalgamated to prepare for the annual Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camp. The camp saw 21 St Margaret’s students wholeheartedly dedicate their time to become the primary carers for approximately thirteen female guests intellectually and physically impaired children. The school also provided 6 helpers who prepared and served food and cleaned up over the 3 days for over 100 people.
Since 1999, the Camp Program has given Year 11 students the opportunity to care for a child with special needs over a three-day period in what is a unique and life-changing experience for all involved. Each camp is provided free of charge for the participants and the majority of the camps run in the September and December school holidays.
The students, supported by a team of dedicated teaching and medical staff, are responsible for the care of these children during the days over the course of the Camp. They quickly learn about the challenges and demands involved in caring for a child with special needs. Not only do the students have an enriching experience, but the children are treated to a weekend full of activities and interactions they would not normally have the opportunity to experience. The Camps also provide much needed respite for parents, siblings and primary carers in what may be their only break of the year.
The eager guests arrived on Saturday morning and their grateful families handed a challenging responsibility over to the students. In return, the parents received beautiful gift packs, which were donated and prepared by the generous St Margaret’s community. A range of activities were available throughout the camp, including; swimming, art activities, karaoke and a trip to Australia Zoo.
Through great acts of devotion, persistence and responsibility, each companion and helper ensured that their guest’s experience was one that they would never forget. When the students relinquished the responsibility of their guest back to the parents, it was clear that the students’ contribution to the camp had made a significant impact on not only the children, but their inspirational parents, many of whom were able to take a well-deserved break. The camp deeply broadens students’ understanding of the realities and complexities of life as they carefully consider the lives of those living with a disability and the impacts this can have on their families. It must also be noted that our St Margaret’s Year 11 students attended lunch time workshops prior to the camp learning how to assist high needs children under the guidance of these staff members.
There were many staff involved in the Sony Camp experience. I would also like to particularly thank Ms Anderson, who facilitated the camp with the staff from Churchie, Ms Bloomer for her assistance and Ms Pallot oversaw the care of each guest and coordinated the nursing staff. I would also like to thank Josie Gracey, Reggi Ali, Claudia Mazzotta and Tom Smithers who also helped supervise over the weekend.
Happy Term 4! I trust everyone had a fabulous, restful holiday and ready for a busy eight weeks. To acknowledge the end of a school year, each year level will be involved in a celebration and a service-learning activity. Each celebration is an acknowledgement of the significant learning that occurs for each particular year level and provides an opportunity for the students to share their talents.
Providing there are no restrictions, families and friends are invited to each of these celebrations. So, open your diaries and pencil in the dates relevant to your family.

Congratulations to all who performed at Soaring Upwards (photos to come next week)
Congratulations all students who performed at the Soaring Upwards Music Festival on Thursday afternoon. This event was scheduled to be held earlier in the year but unfortunately did not proceed due to a COVID lockdown. We recognised that it was important to still provide students with a performance opportunity, so the event was postponed to Term 4. A special stage was set up on Circular Drive and students from across the Primary and Secondary school were invited to listen to the performances. It was a wonderful afternoon of music making and thanks must go to all involved in both rehearsing and presenting performances. We will look forward to sharing some photos from the event with you next week.
