Beyond the Classroom
Development and Community
Congratulations to all involved in the Primary Arts Spectacular – The Power Within. As always, the performance last Friday evening was an absolute delight. Although there are always key players in the production of the Years 5 and 6 Arts Spectacular – particularly, our students and Mrs Kerry Rider who do a magnificent job, there are also so many other staff involved including, our speech and drama staff, our music staff, our primary teaching and support staff, and our facilities and marketing staff. Then, of course, we have had a strong band of volunteers assisting during the preparation phase. Thank you to everyone for your energy and support.
Congratulations also go to our P&F for organising the inaugural Primary Mother/Daughter High Tea last Sunday. It was a happy (and sold out) event; thank you too to the volunteers who organised and assisted on the day.
St Margaret’s is an eSmart accredited school and we are participating in the Alannah & Madeline Foundation’s National eSmart Week (1-9 September) along with hundreds of other communities, to show our commitment to building an eSmart Australia. We know that the web is a great place to learn, be creative and stay connected. However, with one in five young Australians found to have been cyber bullied – and the many other challenges young people face online – it’s important we invest in giving our community the awareness and skills they need to be responsible digital citizens.
In last week’s newsletter I wrote about the Ausenco scholarship that is offered in Year 12. This prestigious annual scholarship is valued at $4,000 per annum for the four years of university study and also includes opportunities for paid vacation employment and the potential for a graduate position at Ausenco. Information can also be found here (PDF 1.6MB).
This is a reminder that an information session for students of Physics, Specialist Mathematics, Mathematical Methods, Maths B and C in Years 11 and 12 will be held on Friday 6 September, 9.50 to 10.25am. All students will receive an application pack via email at this time.
The deadline for applications has been extended to Monday 30 September. Interviews will be held on Thursday 10 and Friday 11 October and the awardee will be announced at the prize reading assembly on Monday 28 October and will be presented their scholarship at Speech Night on Tuesday 12 November.
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for the wonderful warm welcome I have received since beginning at St Margaret’s. A very special thank you to all those who made my commissioning such a wonderful time of celebration. There were so many people, both front of house and behind the scenes, who made the service possible.
Big special church services are not created and led by one person, but rather a big team of people. I appreciate and I am grateful for the team of dedicated staff at St Margaret’s. St Margaret’s is a very caring and supportive community. I give thanks to God for the opportunity to serve the school community. I thank God for the generous hospitality so visible within the school community.
Next year we will be celebrating our 125th year. This special anniversary will give us an opportunity to give thanks to the Sisters of the Society of Sacred Advent, whose dedication and determination helped start St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School. The Sister’s devotion to prayer, worship and education of the whole child has meant that God is always at the centre of all we do.
Prayer helps us to place God at the centre of our community and is an important part of the school ethos. As a Christian school, which is Anglican, there are many opportunities to pray and give thanks. A few years ago, St Aidan’s and St Margaret’s produced a special Prayer Book which is used regularly at both the schools. However, it is time to update the Prayer Book. We would like to add new original short prayers the school community can use at various occasions including functions, events and special times in the life of the school. Staff, students and families are invited to submit an original prayer to be added to this Prayer Book. We may not be able to use all the prayers submitted; however, we would very much appreciate your contribution.
Please email your original prayers to email@example.com
The Rev'd Susan Crothers-Robertson
To flourish means to live well, to grow in every sense, to appreciate the beauty of all things, to establish and nurture relationships, to be able to manage challenges and be resilient, to be strong. We encourage the girls in boarding to be positive, as optimistic emotions enable them to feel confident, to have a go, to do well in all aspects of their learning and deal sensibly and constructively with setbacks.
Positive emotions need to pervade the whole boarding house from the girls to staff to parents. Barbara Fredrickson and others have shown through scientific studies that people who flourish have greater life possibilities than those who are “languishing” (going through the motions) or those who are dominated by negative feelings about life and feel they cannot cope. If you feel positive you see the world better, you appreciate things more (you actually “see” more that is going on around you), you live better in relationships, you are kinder, you help others more, you understand others better, you “learn more’ in every sense, in and out of class, you remember more, you are more likeable, you contribute to others more and you think more about what you do and how it affects others. It is hoped that all students will “engage” positively in all activities at school and in boarding. For girls to flourish, all must feel “safe and secure” in their lives. This is critical and, therefore, one of the main goals of the boarding house.
From school to university
Next week, Year 12 OP eligible students around Queensland will complete the QCS test and the results will be used to calculate OPs. Many students will use their OP to apply for university courses; however, only about 50% of students entering university will use an OP. The other method of entering university is to use a Selection Rank which our OP-ineligible students receive by completing a Diploma of Business.
When the students apply for tertiary entrance, beside each course name are two numbers, separated by a comma, eg (17,63). The first number is the minimum Overall Position (OP) for Queensland Year 12 students. The second number is the minimum QTAC Selection Rank. Of course, students must also choose courses that meet the subject prerequisites for their tertiary preferences.
Next Tuesday and Wednesday, all Year 12 students who have not completed their Diploma will be working with our school provider, Barrington College, to complete the final units of their course. Students who have completed their Diploma will be completing a Senior First Aid course which provides another valuable qualification for their portfolio. All OP-ineligible students are expected to remain at school following their courses to study in the library.
On Monday, all Year 12s will be involved in an RVE Masterclass until 1.05pm and following this will be able to leave school. To ensure the girls completing the QCS test are able to perform to their best, please make sure they get adequate sleep on Monday and Tuesday night.
NAPLAN Results 2019
Wednesday this week saw the release of the 2019 NAPLAN results. Around this time every year there is a flurry of reports about how well or not so well schools have performed on this test. It could be easy to lose sight of the importance of providing an education that is personally significant and relevant not just one to prepare students to do well on tests.
As a school, St Margaret’s has performed well with our school means for all tests being significantly higher than the state and national means and being listed in the top 20 for Year 3, 5, 7 and 9. The girls at St Margaret’s should be very proud of the results they received and remember that NAPLAN is a point in time measurement of a student, not an outcome of all learning.
Individual student reports for students will be sent home in the coming weeks. If you do not receive your daughters NAPLAN report, please contact Rosie Parisi on 3862 0826. Information about these reports and other information about NAPLAN results can be found at the following link http://www.nap.edu.au/naplan/parent-carer-support/
I commend to you the book ‘Better than OK – Helping Young People to flourish at school and beyond”. Researcher and positive psychology presenter Julie Davey discusses the importance of the fabulous first five minutes. Many people focus on and talk about the negative things such as what they don’t like or what they don’t like about others.
Heavy on the shoulders, negative thoughts can consume you, they can lower your energy levels, deplete the immune system, create long term negative attitudes, close you off from others and from considering new possibilities. Unfortunately, some individuals fall victim to the trap of alcohol and drug dependency to try to block their feelings.
If we want to find solutions and live a happy life we must focus on the positive in every situation. Life is what we make it and the power of attitude is the key. Our levels of health, happiness and success are based on how we respond to what happens. As adults we need to be mindful of how we role model this behaviour. Davey suggests the first five minutes of each day we should focus forward, find a positive in every event and switch our focus to avoid dwelling on problems. Here at St Margaret’s students are taught this, but ideally this should be practised at home with family before coming to school.
The more often you imagine yourself – pretend and practise – being happy, confident and successful and enjoying life, the more likely you are able to create this for yourself.
Oh, what a Week!
On a regular basis I conduct enrolment interviews. At these interviews I am often asked, what type of school is St Margaret’s? I can confidently respond that we are a school committed to providing a holistic education, one that caters for the cognitive, physical, spiritual, social and emotional development of each child. The learning experiences on offer this week and last reflect this commitment.
Arts Spectacular was the culmination of cultural learning experiences with the Years 5 and 6 girls sharing their dramatic, artistic and musical talents. Thank you to the staff for helping the girls find their ‘power within’ so they could give their very best performance.
In the sporting arena, Andrews Cup athletics competition and Downey Park netball semi-finals occurred. This higher level of competition challenged team members both physically and mentally. Each student gave her personal best and demonstrated sportsmanship in the face of winning and losing.Well done to Team 11 for your determination and congratulations to Teams 12 and 13 who play in the Preliminary Finals this Saturday.
On Sunday, two teams competed in Opti-Minds, a competition of many teams, where the students plan independently of a teacher and work collaboratively to create a solution to a proposed problem. Congratulations to Team 1 – Science Engineering, Charlotte Perry, Elisa Castley (absent from the Challenge on Sunday due to a ballet competition), Claire Bastian, Sarah Lewis (absent from the Challenge on Sunday due to holidays), Mana Fua and Matilda O’Gorman who won their division and now will head to the State finals. After competing, many of these girls headed to school for high tea.This was a wonderful afternoon where the girls and their mothers shared in the delights on offer and practised their ‘manners matters’.Thank you to the P&F for organising this special occasion for the Primary School.
I will address social and emotional development next week when we focus on acknowledgement of both National Child Protection Week and National eSmart Week under our school theme ‘Child Safety is Everyone’s Business’.
Our annual whole of school Choral Concert is an opportunity for all girls involved in choirs to perform to a wider audience. It is an evening of fun, dynamic performances from all choirs across the Primary and Secondary Schools. A wide variety of repertoire will be performed, with pieces ranging from musical theatre numbers to classical pieces to pop songs.
Once again, our Year 2 students will perform with Exultate, and we will of course finish the evening with our combined choirs’ finale performance. This year we are also very excited to include a dance performance by Ballare, one of St Margaret’s dance groups. The concert will be held on Tuesday evening 17 September in Eton Hall starting at 6:30pm and finishing at approximately 8pm, with refreshments available in Eton Courtyard from 6:00pm. The cost is $5 for adults, no charge for students/children. Please click here (PDF 159.7KB) for a letter with more information.
Please note that a sausage sizzle, provided by the Music Support Group, will be available for choral students prior to the concert (after rehearsals), from 5pm on Tuesday 17 September in Eton Courtyard. For catering purposes, students are requested to write their name on the sign-up sheet in the Sister Helen Orchestra Room by Friday 13 September.
Commissioning – Thank you to Exultate and Assembly Band
Thank you to both Exultate and the Assembly Band for their musical contribution to the commissioning service for Reverend Susan Crothers-Robertson held last Tuesday. It was a special and important event in the life of our school with the musical contribution appreciated by all in attendance.
Years 5 & 6 Arts Spectacular
The Years 5 & 6 Arts Spectacular was held last Friday evening and was a wonderful celebration of our Primary students’ artistic endeavours. Congratulations to all students and staff who worked very hard to bring together such a spectacular performance. A special thank you and congratulations to our Primary Rock Band, Highly Strung, who provided music for both the opening and closing numbers!
Nundah Village Street Festival

Visiting Exchange Students:
15 of our visiting exchange students as well as our Rotary exchange student went on their cultural excursion to Sydney on 22 and 23 August accompanied by Ms Achari and Ms Stone. The girls enjoyed two very busy days full of activities, such as touring the inside of the Opera House, jet boating, harbour cruise, the Sydney Eye, Madame Tussaud’s, Bondi beach and bus tour of Sydney.
thank you to Ms Stone for her assistance on the trip. It was great to see a group of 16 connecting,
sharing experiences and getting along so well.
Students Currently Away on their Exchange:
I recently heard from Priscilla Russell, Charlotte Russell and Georgina Winter who are currently away on their exchange at St Anne’s in South Africa:
We have reached the half-way mark of our time at St Anne’s. Our exchange experience has gone by so fast! After four weeks, we are confident to say that we have, for the most part, memorised everyone’s names, learnt our way around the campus, and revised our daily timetable.
Our third weekend was spent in the boarding house. Charlotte and Georgina had a sleepover in Macrorie House with their partners Zi and Jess. From what they have said, it sounded like a fun night, filled with dancing, board games and singing. On Sunday, Elizabeth Kettle visited us from St Mary’s, Kloof. She was joined by her exchange partner, Tash, and her family, who were visiting their niece at the school. We were invited to join them for a picnic on the front lawn, enjoying some South African delicacies whilst sharing stories of our time thus far on exchange.
The following Monday, we participated in STEPP, a program organised by St Anne’s, aimed to better educate under-privileged children. Once again, it was an extremely rewarding and enjoyable experience.
Last Tuesday, we went shark diving! We woke up bright and early on Tuesday morning, feeling anxious yet excited for the day ahead. Upon our arrival in Durban, we changed into a wetsuits, fins and snorkels, and out to sea we went! Eight kilometres off the coast, we arrived at the shark park. As shark fins began to circle the boat, we were filled with fear. Once we were in the water, all we could see was grey and silver figures, glistening on the sea floor. Soon enough, sharks began to swim around us. They came right up close, looked us in the eye, and continued to swim. As we lay on the surface, hand in hand, we were mesmerised by their calmness. What an incredible experience! That Friday, we celebrated Jess’s (Charlotte’s exchange partner) 16th birthday. We spent the afternoon in Macrorie House, eating lots of cake, pizza and iced tea, whilst socialising with girls from all boarding houses. Afterwards, we attended Chanel dancing practice. We learnt how to waltz, jive and fox trot.
Last weekend, Charlotte and I (Priscilla) headed to Umlanga Rocks in Durban. We spent most of our time there at the beach, swimming and tanning. Meanwhile, Georgina went to Gowrie Farm, an estate not far from school, with Mia Presbury and Zi (Georgina’s partner). Georgina told me she enjoyed playing golf, driving the golf cart and watching movies. The next Monday, we spent the day at Pietermaritzburg Girls High School. All the girls seemed lovely. They were intrigued by our accents and enjoyed hearing about our life in Australia. Ultimately, the girls were extremely welcoming, and we thoroughly enjoyed the day.
From that Thursday to the following Monday was half-term. All girls are able to go home and spend time with family and friends for a couple of days. Charlotte and I ventured to a game farm. We saw every animal in the big five (elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo and leopard)! We even saw a pride of lions hunting! Georgina travelled to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. She tells me it was such an incredible experience, which she will cherish forever.
Today, we are travelling to Nambeti Game Reserve, along with Charlotte Lowe, from Pymble Collage in Sydney, and Paige Nurkin, from North Carolina. We are looking forward to the game drives and spending time with fellow exchange girls.
All in all, we have had so many adventures over the past four weeks and are eager to explore more of what South Africa has to offer!
From Priscilla on behalf of herself, Georgina and Charlotte

It has been a busy term so far with great progress being made on site for the new sports precinct and the Capital Campaign. Since we started the Capital Campaign for the new sports precinct just over 18 months ago we have received more than 270 donations from 240 current parents, past parents, future parents, grandparents, past students and staff.
I’m thrilled to share that we have reached our first ($1m) milestone, and have raised $1,004,607 of our new $1.2m stretch goal for the new sports precinct.
Our Donor Wall, which will be permanently erected in the new sports precinct, will feature a design that is a little different to the traditional listing of names. The Donor Wall will feature the names of those who have supported the campaign, through donations of $1,000 or more, in a range of sizes associated with different levels of giving in a 'wordle' style design.
View the design concept for the Donor Wall. (PDF 376.9KB)
The Donor Wall is important, as it is not only a tangible way in which we can recognise our donors for their generosity, but it also sends a powerful message to our girls; that is, it takes a community to create something special.
Will you join us?

Professional Women’s Network Cocktail Event with guest speaker, Trish Jackson (’79)
Date: Thursday 17 October 2019
Time: 5:30pm start, 7.30pm finish
Venue: McCullough Robertson, Level 11, 66 Eagle Street, Brisbane
Tickets: Corporate groups $800 for 10, $80 adult and $40 students (Years 10-12/tertiary)
Surviving against all odds, Trish Jackson uses her disability to educate the next generation; the key to ending bullying and discrimination. Trish is one of 10,000 babies born with several birth defects because her mother was given a sample packet of the drug Thalidomide, a supposedly ‘safe’ drug, during her pregnancy.
After graduating, Trish’s second job was ironically in the health department in the pharmaceutical section – ironic for two reasons: she was the result of the greatest pharmaceutical disaster in the world and the government who had told her she ‘could not work’ ended up being her employer for over a decade.
Today she is a guest speaker and agent for change – she is still campaigning for compensation after 57 years for the harm caused by the drug Thalidomide.
Join us for our PWN Cocktail event as Trish will share how, in the face of adversity, she has chartered her own professional path and how corporate workplaces can create a more inclusive culture.
Tickets are available via Flexischools. Please click here to purchase your ticket. (link for Flexischools https://www.flexischools.com.au/FM/FM.aspx?t=DemoLogin&uid=stmargags)
