Development and Community
We are very proud to announce that St Margaret’s has been announced as finalists for The Australian Education Awards 2019 in three categories:
School Principal of the Year - Non-government – Ros Curtis
Primary School Principal of the Year - Non-government – Angela Drysdale
Boarding School of the Year
We of course look forward to the results at the awards evening in Sydney on 16 August.
Recently we held a Year 10 Broadening Horizons Conference, and I would like to thank Mrs Naomi Holley, Ms Liz Johnston, Mrs Jo Butterworth, Ms Kate Montgomery and other staff involved in the organisation of this event. We were also fortunate to have some past students come to be part of a panel and speak with our students. After their session they stayed for morning tea and were very generous in talking with the Year 10s and passing on any advice they had learnt from their experience. We truly value the connections we continue to have with our Old Girls and I wish to pass on a very heartfelt thank you to the following people:
Last Friday, Jo Butterworth and I attended an ISQ (Independent Schools Queensland) workshop about the New QCE. 2020 will see the first cohort of school leavers receive a QCE (Queensland Certificate of Education) and ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank). This is a Queensland wide change and many aspects of its implementation are already in place for the current Year 11 cohort. Like with any change to a school system many challenges and opportunities arise, and Jo and I had the opportunity to share with other independent schools the challenges and opportunities that are coming with this new system.
St Margaret’s has a strong foundation of educational excellence and this is evident through the focus of the Strategic Plan, its reputation and the Sisters and their philosophy for educating girls. Therefore, it was reassuring to reflect on our progress in transitioning to the new system with peers from other schools to share ideas and processes from across the Independent School Sector.
This change, along with its challenges, is providing opportunities to enhance the learning experiences and strengthen the outcomes for students. Thanks must go to all teaching staff and the leadership of the Heads of Faculty who have assisted in ensuring that St Margaret’s is in a strong position with regards to transitioning to the new system due to the strong learning culture of the school and its ability to shape and reshape within the Queensland educational landscape, while maintaining its own mission and vision for all students.
It’s important for students to experience leadership opportunities during their schooling, to learn the art of building relationships within teams, defining identities and achieving tasks effectively. It also provides an opportunity to learn to identify and display effective communication and interpersonal skills. Part of my role as Head of Senior House for the Boarding House is working closely with the senior students as they take these learning steps to build their leadership skills.
It is common knowledge we all lead and role model differently. We attempt to lead by example and encourage the students to develop positively as individuals. This term, I have hosted workshops with the Year 11 students as they will soon be stepping into captaincy roles. Our first workshop was to help the students identify their character strengths and weaknesses. We encourage the students to cultivate these strengths and to use them to help develop their lower strengths. We have also discussed leadership in action, leadership style, boarding culture and identifying and understanding the ‘St Margaret’s Way’. The students understand the importance of learning these skills and the responsibilities to come. The current Year 12s continue to be an inspiration for the younger years and embed a positive culture for our community, especially in the Boarding House.
It is very rewarding as a staff member to be a part of this leadership journey with your daughters. It is only stepping stones, but an integral part to their learning as they become confident professional leaders for our future.
Years 11 and 12 Exam Block
The Year 12 Exam Block begins next Monday 10 June with a full day of QCS practice, followed by a study day on Tuesday 11 June. The subsequent exams are detailed on the Exam Block schedule that can be accessed on the Year 12 POD page. There is only one Year 11 Exam Day on Monday 17 June. On this Exam Day and during Exam Block, students are not required to attend school unless they have a scheduled exam.
The girls are required to wear full school uniform to each exam. We are also ensuring that no electronic devices including mobile phones and smart watches are brought into the exam room, so please remind your daughters to leave them at home or in their lockers.
Update - Year 10 Subject selection
This week, Year 10s begin Senior Education and Training (SET) Plan meetings. The SET Plan interviews are with either Ms Lesa Fowler, Head of Boarding, Ms Naomi Holley, Director of Careers and Portfolio Pathways or me. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss your daughter’s subject selection for Years 11 and 12 so that we can prepare the timetable for next year. The girls have already signed up for their interview and you are most welcome to attend, or we can ring you at the time of the interview.
Year 12 English and Music Extension
Year 11 students have the option of studying English and Literature Extension or Music Extension. Extension subjects are only offered for Unit 3 and 4 and will commence in Term 4 this year. Music students and high performing English and Literature students will be invited to a meeting in Week 9 this term to learn more about the courses. If your daughter is interested in these subjects, please ask them to see Mrs Walker for Music Extension or Ms Layton for English and Literature Extension for more information. Students who choose to study an extension subject will be required to drop one of their existing subjects at the end of Unit 2.
Request for Extensions
As we head into the busy part of the term, can you please note the following for your daughter if she misses an assessment or needs an extension due to illness.
If there is a valid reason for the non-submission of a response on the due date, such as illness, a student must apply for Special Provision by completing the Request for an Extension form located in the Academic Hub on the POD. A medical certificate must be supplied in Years 10-12 in the event of illness. The Dean of Pedagogy and the Head of Faculty will determine a reasonable adjustment for the submission of a response. For students in Years 7-9, a letter from parents or carers to the Head of Faculty outlining the reasons for the non-submission of assessment is required. The student will be required to submit the assessment on the day of her return to school, unless an extension is approved.
School of Life
It has been a very successful start to the School of Life club. The presentations kicked off earlier this term with budgeting, elections and voting and yesterday was the last presentation for Term 2 which focussed on curriculum vitaes and interview tips (including how to dress appropriately for interviews). The club will be back in Term 3 starting with a presentation on superannuation, followed by personal credit/credit cards, nutrition and the Australian tax system. All students in Years 10-12 are encouraged to attend these sessions. Also, a reminder that suggestion boxes are placed in the Senior Library and School Support. All suggestions are welcome.
I am often unfortunate enough to witness how some beautiful young girls portray themselves online. According to Maggie Hamilton in her book What’s Happening to Our Girls?, what a girl now aged 12 experienced when she was 7 is not what a 7 year-old faces today. No wonder it is so difficult for us as parents to have an understanding of the lives of our girls today. Hamilton says that no previous generation of girls has been where today’s girls are heading. Advertisers and the media are partly to blame; Hamilton states, “This early process of turning girls into consumers reduces them to little more than a target market, and has a dramatic and detrimental impact on their aspirations, body image and sense of self.”
And then there is the internet: a place where our daughters roam and we often have no idea of where they are exploring or what image they are putting out there for billions the world over to see. Adolescents need boundaries; this is because of the stage of brain development they are at, which means they are not good at impulse control, prioritising or assessing risk. Often, they are unaware of which pictures or comments they post are inappropriate or even downright offensive. The boundaries and consequences need to be laid out clearly, as Carr-Gregg states, “We are our adolescent’s prefrontal cortex”.
It is important as parents that you frequently talk and re-emphasise the values held dear within our own families and communities. Within the School we continually refer to our values. There is unfortunately no manual on how best to parent our children, but there are a number of books and websites which can help us to navigate these often confusing adolescent years. Of note are authors such as Maggie Hamilton, Michael Carr-Gregg and Steven Biddulph. A website that I find particularly useful is www.parentingideas.com.au.

The Value of Reading
Numerous studies have identified the significant impact reading has on the reader. It has been found that 10 minutes exposure to reading materials each day will help shape your child’s future. Interestingly, all reading materials (picture books, comic, novels, recipes, even the back of food packets) contribute to a child’s daily reading goal.
Reading for 10 minutes a day shapes your child’s future by benefitting their performance in general knowledge, vocabulary, reading comprehension, verbal fluency and spelling which are linked to improved measures on a child’s academic success as illustrated in the infographic below:
A child’s empathy and emotional intelligence can be improved by frequent reading as it allows readers to better understand people and the world around them, which is especially important in today’s world.
It is critical that students spend time each day rehearsing fluent reading behaviours. Our AR (Accelerated Reader) Program assists students to identify books at their independent reading level. The girls continue to embrace AR with 85.5 million words read by the Year 3-6 girls thus far, six girls have read over 2 million words and fourteen girls have read over 1 million words.
The AR results provide evidence that our students are fervent readers. However, if you have a daughter who is not a regular reader, you can help to develop her reading habits by setting aside 10 minutes a day. It only takes ‘doing it’ 20 times to make it a habit. Reading challenging books with your child role models fluent expressive reading and instils a love of literature.
And in the words penned over 40 years ago by Dr Suess:
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more things that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

Winter Sport Camps – Athletics/Hockey/Netball
This year, St Margaret’s is launching two new sports camps – a QGSSSA Netball and Hockey camp. These camps will run simultaneously, in conjunction with the annual Athletics camp which will be held on Friday 21 June to Sunday 23 June at the BLK Performance Centre at Runaway Bay on the Gold Coast. The Athletics, Hockey and Netball camps will involve skill and team development sessions which will assist all girls in their preparation for the QGSSSA competition season in all three sports. Each sport will run separate programs; however, any multi-sport athletes will be able to cross-over between sports. Further details can be found via the POD sports pages.
Isabella Harte (Year 8) who stunned the road running world with her sensational victory at the Brisbane Marathon Festival on 2 June. Isabella, who is still only 13 years old, was the first female to cross the line in an all age event and was 7th overall in a 1,100 strong field.
Indoor Rowing Championships
The Indoor Rowing Championships held at Sommerville House last week saw St Margaret’s achieve great results on the night and the promise of an exciting season ahead. Old Girl, Rowing Olympian and current St Margaret’s Rowing Coach, Madeleine Edmunds (’09) was on hand to present many of the placings from the event.
The St Margaret’s Indoor Rowing Team was made up of the following girls:
Year 8: Lucinda Bourke, Indiahna Frawley, Inge Mellor, Charlize Fahrensohn, Sally Bambling
Year 9: Holly Carrigan, Emma Pickering, Verity House, Abigail George, Poppy McPherson, Kate Bloomfield
Year 10: Primrose Carrigan, Sophia Wightman, Morgan Wright, Lucinda MacPherson, Emma Arnott, Chloe Fenwicke
Year 11: Shanelle Flute, Imogen Tsien, Lucy Scott, Pia Malouf, Margot Lisle, Annabelle Brown
Year 12: Sophie Gerber, Lily Devereaux, Mia Fahrensohn, Isabelle Cox, Emma House
Lucinda Bourke led the charge in the Year 8 individual ergo over 500m. Holly Carrigan in Year 9 finished 3rd with Primrose Carrigan in Year 10 charging home in the last 200 metres finishing 2nd in an incredibly tight finish, with only .01 of a second separating 1st and 2nd.
Shanelle Flute led from the front to win the Year 11 2000 metre individual with Lily Devereaux putting in a gutsy effort in her individual 2000 metre race.
The Year 8 relay team took to stage with Lucinda Bourke, Indiahna Frawley, Inge Mellor, Charlize Fahrensohn and Sally Bambling rowing 200 metres each. They experienced some challenges early on dropping back to midfield after a great start. Realising their position, the girls pulled together to rein in the leaders and finish 3rd in a tight finish for the placings.
Verity House, Emma Pickering, Abigail George, Poppy McPherson and Kate Bloomfield powered through to achieve a 3rd in the Year 9 relay. The Year 11 relay with Imogen Tsien, Lucy Scott, Pia Malouf, Margot Lisle and Annabelle Brown finished in 3rd as did Sophie Gerber, Lily Devereaux, Mia Fahrensohn, Isabelle Cox and Emma House in the Year 12 relay.
The All Age Relay consisting of 2 rowers from each year level saw the girls rise to the occasion as our Year 8s led the way. Well done to Lucinda Bourke, Indiahna Frawley, Emma Pickering, Holly Carrigan, Morgan Wright, Primrose Carrigan, Shanelle Flute, Imogen Tsien, Sophie Gerber and Mia Fahrensohn on taking out the win in the All Age Relay.
Well done to those who competed and supported the night and for the outstanding achievements both on and off the ergo.

Students currently away on their Exchange
We recently heard from the following students:
Teneille Allen, St Anne’s, South Africa:
It’s been hectic over here. I am having such an amazing time and went hot air ballooning this morning. What an incredible experience! Hope this term is going well.
Estella Caro (and Celia Quinn), Pensionnat du Saint Nom de Marie, Montreal, Canada
Once again, I have to say how quickly time is flying by. It is technically our last full week of normal classes because we have exam block next week. It feels as though each day just keeps getting better and better. On the 24th of May, my host family took me to the famous Montreal Schwartz Deli where we had the best smoked meat sandwiches ever. The Sunday of that weekend we went on a helicopter tour of Greater Montreal, piloted by one of Quebec’s finest; Julianne’s great uncle. Last week at school we had another amazing time; Wednesday celebrating the end of the year party, which was Coachella themed. On Friday, we did a mammoth 25km bike ride at night called ‘Tour la Nuit’ which was actually a lot more enjoyable than it may sound. It was a beautiful way to see the whole city, get some exercise and have a really fun Friday night. On Saturday, we visited the old port of Montreal where we did some shopping, tried the two famous bagel shops and experienced an escape room (we escaped with 3 minutes to spare!!). On Sunday, I went to the cinema with some friends to see the new “Rocketman” movie.
Celia and I are so incredibly grateful for this amazing opportunity, and although it has not ended we cannot thank you enough for everything. It has been the best 2 months of my life so far and frankly I don’t want it to end just yet. Amongst all these amazing activities and experiences, we are trying to keep on top of our Maths work. It must be a busy time at the moment at St Margaret’s. I hope everything is going very well.
