Beyond the Classroom
Development and Community
Welcome back to the final term of the year.
Several members of the teaching staff have been nominated by the community for the National Excellence in Teaching Awards (NEiTA). Congratulations to the following teachers in the Primary school: Kimberley Bachmann, Georgina Stevenson, Regina Brennan, Briar Bracey, Lucardia Moulton, Suzy Edwards and Ailsa Crocket; and the following teachers in the Secondary school: Brad King, Chris Dunn, Jolie Cowen, Emily Labinsky, Louise Burgman, Naomi Holley, Katie Flanagan, Thomas Smithers, Nicole Walker, Tammy MacGinley, Annette Box, Helen Philp, Alison Scott, Kate Wiedemann and Ysabella Dawson.
These awards are designed to encourage and support educators through recognising those who are examples of excellence in their profession. It is a wonderful way to recognise the fantastic and important work of our teachers and is a great reflection on the quality of the whole school teaching and learning community.
Ms Naomi Holley has started her Long Service Leave for the term and Ms Helen Philp is leaving us in 3 weeks on Maternity Leave. Therefore, we welcome Ms Amanda Jansen, who teaches both History and English, who will be taking their classes.
As the school year has fundamentally changed for Year 12s due to the new arrangement for the QCE and ATAR, so too has our calendar of events. We begin our good-byes to our Year 12s this week with the Music Dinner. The following week sees a whole host of valedictory events which will culminate in the farewell to seniors by the student body on Friday 16 November and the Sports Awards evening. After this time, the Year 12s go into study mode for a whole week prior to the commencement of external exams.
This weekend sees our COVID-19 version of the MAYO ‘Soaring Upwards’ Festival. I do hope you are able to come to the school, even for just a short period of time, to support the gallery and the stalls.

Welcome back to Term 4. I pray you found time to rest as we prepare for a busy and exciting term. This week, we celebrated the induction of the new student leaders for 2021.
Back in the 1970’s, Robert K Greenleaf wrote a book; “The Servant as Leader”. Within the book is a famous quote and one I use for leadership. “The servant-leader is servant first… It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. That person is sharply different from one who is leader first… The difference manifests itself in the care taken by the servant-first to make sure that other people’s highest priority needs are being served. The best test, and difficult to administer, is: Do those served grow as persons? Do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants? And, what is the effect on the least privileged in society? Will they benefit or at least not be further deprived?”
This kind of leadership that Greenleaf spoke about, servant leadership, was modelled by Jesus Christ. Jesus came to serve, not to be served. “Just as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28) Therefore, as our 2021 student leaders take up their new roles, we pray that God will bless them as they prepare to lead. We pray that as they lead, and enable others to grow, that they also may grow.
Developing relationships is the key to a successful Boarding House. 2020 has been a year full of happiness, fun and successes, with girls striving to be the best they can be. Building authentic relationships is the key to the girls feeling connected to the Boarding House and the whole school. Relationships are built on trust and it is important for the girls to feel safe and secure in their environment. All members of the Boarding community strive to form relationships with each member of our community. This was evident, particularly during the September holidays, as many of our International students stayed in the Boarding House for the two-week break. The building of relationships was shown through their support and encouragement of each other.
It was a different feeling in the Boarding House during the holidays, as the girls’ routines were relaxed. Lily Devlin, our Activities Coordinator provided the girls with a variety of activities to keep them busy and they certainly enjoyed the flexibility of being able to participate in varied activities each day. One of the favourite activities appeared to be ‘Eton Kitchen’ where the girls were able to cook up a number of items to share with each other.
Thank you to our staff who were prepared to assist over the holiday period to look after these girls and for their dedication. One of the great positives has been witnessing the development of new relationships between the girls in different year groups and staff. We would also like to acknowledge the support and effort from both the Kitchen and Facilities staff during the holidays.
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 2020. 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. Students who achieve a Grade Point Average of 13 or above with no overall result lower than a B, 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 Years 7 and 8 where some subjects are studied on a rotational basis, only those subjects studied in the first 2 rotations are used in the calculation of these awards. In Year 12, Honours awards are based on the grades awarded using the provisional subject results for the internal summative assessments in each subject.
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. 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.
Determination of Year 10 Subject Prizes
A subject prize is awarded in Year 10 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 on whom should receive the prize.
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. Please 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 more than one subject prize will be awarded. 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. The award is presented to a Year 12 student who has attained the highest internal assessment subject results across 5 subjects. The Proxime Accessit to the Dux of the School is 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 Units 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. 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.
2021 Scholars’ Assembly
In response to the new QCE system, Year 12 students will also be considered for the following awards to be presented at the Scholars’ Assembly post their graduation on Tuesday 2 February 2021.
Determination of QCE Subject Prizes
A QCE subject prize will be awarded for each subject to the student who receives the highest overall subject result. This result is based on the overall subject result out of 100 which is calculated by the QCAA, by adding together the internal and external assessment marks. If more than one student receives the highest subject result more than one QCE subject prize will be awarded. To receive a subject prize all four assessments must be completed.
Determination of the QCE Dux of the School and the Proxime Accessit to the Dux of the School
The QCE Dux of St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School will be awarded at the Scholars’ Assembly in the year following graduation. The award is presented to the student in Year 12 who has attained the highest overall academic result for Units 3 and 4 in that Year 12 cohort. The Proxime Accessit to the Dux of the School is the student who has attained the next highest overall academic result for Units 3 and 4 in that Year 12 cohort. The determination of these awards is based on students’ subject results which are calculated by the QCAA by adding together a student’s three internal and one external assessment results. Only the top 5 subject results will be considered for the calculation of the Dux and the Proxime Accessit. To be considered for the awards, students must complete all four assessments for five subjects. Subjects are not weighted. If it is not possible to distinguish between two students both shall be awarded the Dux prize. The decision as to the Dux and the Proxime Accessit to the Dux of the School shall remain confidential until the presentation at the Scholars’ Assembly.
Supervised Study Sessions
Supervised Study Sessions will resume on Monday 12 October and will run every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The sessions run from 5:00-7:30pm and are held in the Eunice Library. Please note that if your daughter needs to stay for all or part of this time, she needs to be booked in.
Bookings for all sessions throughout Term 4 can be made via FlexiSchools on the School’s website. While the study sessions are free of charge, if you would like your daughter to have dinner, this can be purchased for $10 at the time of booking. Bookings are essential and should be made before 9am on the day of each session.
This term, we welcome four QUT students who will be completing their Prac placements at St Margaret’s:
Charlie Hannaway - HPE and English; supervising teacher - Talia O’Callaghan
Chloe Crichton - English/Drama; supervising teachers - Natalie Grant and Kate Wiedemann
Riley Cummings - History/Humanities/English; supervising teacher - Louise Brown
Patrick Collum - English/Humanities/Geography; supervising teacher - Patrice Chappell
Each of the teachers will have the opportunity to teach classes across Years 7-10 and also observe some senior classes.
The Leader’s Induction Service was held today which proved to be a wonderful school event, celebrating our current Year 11 students on their appointment as senior leaders. These students will now walk alongside our Year 12 students as they mentor them for the coming weeks ready to take full reign in 2021.
We look forward to their Prefects Assembly next year, where these seniors will unveil their theme for 2021.
A great start to Term 4
It shouldn’t go unnoticed that the first event this year with an audience is the Book Character Parade. Such a momentous occasion is testament to the significance of this celebration; a celebration of reading and books. This event marks the beginning of our three-week celebration with official Book Week starting on 17 October.
The theme for this event is “Curious Creatures, Wild Minds”. Such a theme highlights the importance of characters in books, as opening a book introduces the reader to a fascinating array of new people, characters who are curious creatures or ones who have wild minds. Curious creatures often take the reader on journeys, they break the rules of ordinary life.
The wild minds of characters can help the reader learn about life, the world around them and how these characters work through their problems.
As the reader learns more about the characters, they also learn about themselves. The characters offer another person’s perspective, what they are going through, their thoughts, emotions, advice and how people in the world react to their circumstances and experiences.
All that they learn from the characters, the reader can bring back to the world the reader lives in. The characters found in books are like friends waiting any time we want them, just open a book to find them.
The Book Character Parade occurred between the Years 5 and 6 Arts Spectacular performances. These items paid homage to our 125-year celebration, highlighting St Margaret’s notables who possessed wild minds. Next week, I will take the opportunity to share more about our first week of special events.
Music Dinner was held last Wednesday evening and was a wonderful celebration of the music students’ achievements throughout 2020. It was also a special opportunity to say thank you and farewell to our 2020 Music Seniors. Eton Hall was transformed with each table decorated according to the ‘Music Megastars’ theme. A very big thank you must go to the Music Support Group and other parent helpers who went to enormous lengths to provide such a special evening for our music students. Thank you also to the facilities and catering staff for their extraordinary efforts in supporting the St Margaret’s Music Program!
