Farewell, Class of 2017!

Today marks the last official day of school for the Class of 2017, Year 12 students at All Saints’ College.

The morning started with the Year 12 breakfast where students sign each others’ shirts and say their goodbyes. From there the group went to plant the Class of 2017 tree which was dedicated by Father Tony Murray-Feist.

Then the Year 12s went through the Colonnade, a gauntlet of students from the Senior School, teachers and support staff who cheer them off into the arms of their parents waiting in the car park.

This evening is the Valedictory Dinner at HBF Stadium where parents, teachers and students come together for a night of reflection and entertainment.

Recorded live stream footage of this morning’s events can be viewed on our Facebook page and this post will be updated with photos throughout the course of the day.

Good luck to the Class of 2017. Go well!

Mandarin introduced at All Saints’ College in 2018

Mandarin introduced at All Saints’ College in 2018

All Saints’ College will introduce Mandarin language classes for students in 2018 following an extensive consultant-led review of its offerings in this area listed this as a key recommendation.

The Language Learning Review, managed by Dr Nayia Cominos PhD MA from Kephi Consulting, suggested the College should offer one Asian language (Mandarin) and one European language (French) to cater for its diverse community and the needs of a 21st century workforce.

ASC will introduce Mandarin from Kindergarten to Year 6 in 2018, removing Japanese from the Junior School curriculum from the new academic year. The College will offer Mandarin and French (for second language learners) for Year 7 students from 2018 and support the ongoing study of Japanese and Italian for our current Years 7 to 11 students who wish to continue with those languages, through internal or external providers.

“While this provides us with some exciting new opportunities, we are also mindful that this is disappointing news for some members in our College community, and keenly felt by our teachers of Japanese and Italian, and it is important to add that in no way is this decision a reflection on the wonderful work of these teachers over many years,” said Principal Ms Belinda Provis.

“Some of our Junior School students have been learning Japanese for several years and this is obviously not a ‘lost’ experience as their language learning skills will certainly enrich their language studies as they now transition to Mandarin,” added Ms Provis.

The Languages Learning Review took over 12 months to complete and engaged with staff, students, parents and external professionals through face to face and online surveys as well as focus groups.

“We are pleased to add that – because our Languages staff are multi-talented – each of them is qualified to teach in another area of the College. We are naturally very keen to retain these staff at All Saints’ and so we are pleased to be able to offer them ongoing work at the College,” added the Principal.

All Saints’ student flies high with aviation award

Less than 12 months after starting training, All Saints’ College Year 11 student, Harriet Holbrook, has won the Australian Women Pilots’ Association (AWPA) WA Branch Aviation Award for 2017.

This award assists female student pilots in their training and includes a $2000 scholarship to put toward a Recreational Pilot License (RPL), Private Pilot Licence, RA-Aus Pilot Certificate, RA-Aus Navigation Endorsement or Gliding Certificate.

Harriet is nearing completion of her RPL and is undertaking final training and examinations with the Royal Aero Club of Western Australia (RACWA) at Jandakot Airport.

In January, with only 40 hours accompanied, and four hours solo flying time under her belt, Harriet took off from one of the shortest and most dangerous runways in the world, Courchevel Airport in the French Alps, with an instructor.

“At first, looking down the runway was daunting but once in the air, it was really beautiful and peaceful. Coming into land was again scary due to the very short length, but it was quite an experience,” she said.

Harriet said she was very surprised and grateful to find out that she had won this year’s award and enjoys achieving goals and the challenge of flying.

“I also really love the peacefulness when flying solo, especially when I fly down to Mandurah,” she added.

Harriet was first inspired to start aviation after she signed up for the Royal Aero Club of Western Australia Young Eagles Program, which introduces students aged between eight and 17 years of age to aviation.

 

Heritage Week 2017 a success!

Heritage Week 2017 was a great success, with hundreds of students taking part in various activities and events throughout the five day program.

This year Heritage Week focused on the ‘Heritage of Service’ here at the College and the various ways staff, students and families have supported the community since our inception and how this has shaped our philosophy today.

With that in mind, Foundation parents from the very first class of students in 1981 were invited back for a morning tea and tour so they could see how their vision for the College had been realised more than 36 years later.

This year also saw the introduction of a ‘Pop-up Museum’ which featured artifacts from the very beginning of the College; sausage sizzles raising money for the Ethan Davies Fellowship for paediatric brain cancer research; Junior and Senior School Old Saints’ Challenges, where students had to construct a temporary shelter out of newspaper and masking tape for use by people that were homeless or impacted by natural disaster; and the annual Old Saints v Students Sports Event with basketball, netball and indoor soccer games. An announcement on the winner of the Heritage Week House Cup will be made in the coming days.

Thank you to all who took part, particularly the Old Saints who took time out of their schedules to be at the College throughout the week and help facilitate the various events.
