From the Principal VOLUME NO. 15 – 27 MAY, 2019

GAZETTE Dear Parents, Students, Staff and Friends of Rosebank,

In completing another extremely busy week I cannot help but reflect on the complexity, excitement and diversity of a Rosebank education. This is not only reflected in the broad and inclusive curriculum in which students are immersed daily, and which becomes most apparent as we move through the series of senior Learning Progress Meetings, but the myriad of other activities as highlighted by this week. Those included Mock Trials, Debating, the Instrumental Music Soiree, and the briefing session for our family hosts for our International students who arrive in July as part of the IBSSSEP program. The students who will embark on the Kokoda Track, those who will travel to Kakadu or the Philippines in October, as well as thestudents who will travel to Perth as part of the The Australian Catholic Youth Festival (ACYF) in December. This is on top of the planning process for a possible immersion experience to Chile in 2020 (part of our partnership with our Benedictine sisters and brothers of the Manquehue movement based in Santiago).

What does this wide and diverse program of opportunities attempt to provide? The immersion program is an extension of our international educational program which provides a focus on the beauty and complexity of the world’s people and cultures creating a sense of global citizenship and belonging. It goes beyond the ‘escape’ culture promoted by the travel industry to ‘being with, and understanding of’ through listening and sharing. It is a program that breaks the underlying deadening messages of ‘us and them’ and replaces it with a belief in and an experience of ‘we’. It undoubtedly looks for that which binds the human experience – our dreams, ideas and hopes. It creates unique moments of radical hospitality where the stranger is met as an opportunity for meeting God. It is part of the sacred work of ‘the school in the Lord’s Service’.

As such the Immersion program is an expression of our commitment to education for Wisdom. We see a humanity increasingly sceptical of institutions and rightly so. The ‘mission’ is beyond institutions. We now see a contemporary movement to a personal plural spirituality – a seeking of meaning through a variety of traditions. Sr. Joan Chittister OBS notes however, that we need more. ‘What is needed is a prophetic as well as a private spirituality’. What is to be prophetic?

Sr. Joan claims that we have divorced spiritual obligation from political policy and have retreated from engagement with a suffering world to a kind of pious indifference. Dianna Green in reviewing Sr Joan’s recent book explains ‘Her intent is to help each of us to reclaim the prophet inherent within, and in the process to say yes to life. As Jesus has promised: ‘I have come that you may have life and have it to the full’.

I had the privilege of studying in Boston under Walter Brueggemann one of the great Old Testament scripture scholars. In covering the Prophets he put

to rest the notion that they are clairvoyants or psychics. Rather they were ‘truth tellers’ not agitators, anarchists or traitors. The prophet is one who acts fearlessly and persistently for the sake of the world, the future and the Mission. This ancient tradition identifies the core postures we must adopt: awareness, audacity, authenticity, self-giving, patience, vision, faith and confidence. He would often paraphrase the various reluctant souls (the Prophets) called by God to speak the truth: They effectively were saying ‘if you persist in the way (whatever ailment was being referred to) you have chosen, therefore, so and so will happen’.

Sr. Joan sees this prophetic tradition continue into modernity through the voices of Rev. Martin Luther King, Dorothy Day, St. Óscar Romero, Sr. Helen Prejean, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Rosa Parks, Archbishop Hélder Câmara We can all name many others. These are the great souls who were willing to risk, to not be bystanders, to persist, to not despair, to reject the false dichotomies often presented by the media and by politics in an increasingly adversarial world. Sr. Joan, in her own life, calls us to be the carriers of the prophetic tradition into the ‘morass of the contemporary world’. To be a prophet demands not only a vision, but the commitment and courage to fix a "muddled," visionless world.

Finally Sr. Joan warns that if one speaks prophetically one will not be loved. This way of life requires courage and stamina and so education in the faith must include an education in resilience. While we may not be able to remove all their challenges, we can help young women and men build resilience - the ability to overcome difficult experiences and be shaped positively by them. Dr Rangan Chatterjee, (The Stress Solution) writes that our brains respond to the information around us, so resilience can be taught, modelled and nurtured at any age. Her suggestions are:

Have one-on-one time with each child, without distractionsResilience comes from relationships; children need nurturing. It’s not a magical inner strength that helps kids through tough times; instead, it’s the reliable presence of one, supportive relationship, be it parent, teacher, relative or family friend. It’s quality, not quantity that counts.

Give sleep a chanceLack of good-quality sleep is a huge driver for stress: it has a negative effect on memory, concentration, cognitive function, and decision-making. One of the fastest ways to improve sleep is to limit screen time before bed.

Get out and exerciseAs well as keeping them physically fit, exercise will increase children’s resilience. It actually strengthens the brain. Regular physical activity teaches our stress-response system to recover more efficiently.

Teach delayed gratificationResilience means understanding you can’t always have what you want as soon as you want it. It’s an important concept to pass on in the age of Amazon Prime, Spotify, Netflix and Uber. Psychology teaches us that people who can accept delayed gratification lead happier, healthier lives. Without the ability to defer pleasure and reward, our kids are losing an important skill for their wellbeing.

Eat the alphabetNutrition has a significant impact on mental health. Good-quality food changes the composition of our gut bugs, which helps send calm signals to the brain. Poor-quality, highly processed food sends stress signals instead. A diverse diet, rich in fibre, will lead to greater diversity in our gut bugs, which in turn will help make us more resilient, and anxiety and depression less likely.

Model gratitudeInstead of pestering your children with questions such as, “How was school?” and, “What did you do today?”, teach them to reframe their day. Try this alternative approach: 1) What did someone do today to make you happy?2) What did you do to make someone else happy?3) What have you learned today?This simple exercise helps us all find the positive in every day. It teaches gratitude, nurtures optimism, and recognises kindness.

Rangan adds, it doesn’t matter what may have happened at work or school, or how stressed any of us may have felt when we sat down at the table; the whole mood seems to lift once we’ve played this game. I learn things about my kids that they’d probably never have thought to tell me otherwise. Try it. It might just become the highlight of your day.

An education in Wisdom is an education to both a personal and prophetic spirituality. The message of the Gospel and indeed of creation is that we are co-creators. As such Jesus has no hands but ours. How can we become truth tellers, to ‘turn on the light’ and assist in making the world a better place.

You're Invited!

With NAPLAN behind us and a range of assessment, exam blocks and trials still ahead for all of our students, I would like to extend an invitation to all parents and friends of the College, to attend an important Parent Workshop, hosted by Elevate Education. Details of the workshop are as follows:

Parent Workshop - Elevate EducationDate: Tuesday, 4 June 2019Venue: Rosebank College SRSCTime: 7pm(This is a parent only event)

RSVP required (click on link):

We highly recommend that you join us on the evening, to be a part of an empowering conversation around supporting your children in every facet of their education journey. The workshop will enable you to feel more confident in imparting valuable and lifelong skills to your children across a range of topics including:

• Time Management: How parents can help their child manage their time effectively, so they can maintain a balanced routine, not leave tasks to the last minute, and avoid distractions.

• Study Support: What kind of work is most valuable in helping to achieve higher marks? Presenters will discuss what good study looks like so parents can help their children work smarter.

• Motivation: Sometimes, the most difficult part of studying in high school is simply being motivated enough to do the work. This seminar will help parents understand the key drivers behind student motivation, and how to leverage these to help their child reach their potential

"The schools that see the greatest behavioral change from their students are those that bring the parent community into the conversation. This workshop provides parents with strategies to get on the same page as their children so that the skills taught in class are reinforced at home." - Elevate Education

Parents who attend will also be provided with access to the Elevate Parent E-book to follow up and extend on the best ways to support their child through high school.

I hope to see you all there.

From the Dean of MinistryThe Wisdom of Australia’s First Peoples.This is Reconciliation Week. The theme in 2019 is Grounded in Truth – Walk together in Courage. Last week Australia voted in a Federal Election. Today the Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, announced his intention to work with Australia’s First Peoples towards constitutional recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This refers to a move that has been many years in the making whereby our Constitution would be amended to include specific acknowledgement of our First Peoples. Such an amendment would require a referendum. In 2017 the First Nations National Constitutional Convention held at Uluru, issued The Uluru Statement from the Heart appealing to all Australians to walk together on the journey towards constitutional change to give Indigenous Australians a voice in the laws and policies that directly affect them. Rosebank proclaims its solidarity with our First Peoples, especially in the lived presence of our students of Aboriginal heritage and culture and our long-standing friendship with the community of Ltyentye Apurte (Santa Teresa) in the Northern Territory. I offer the text of the Statement for our prayerful reflection.

We, gathered at the 2017 National Constitutional Convention, coming from all points of the southern sky, make this statement from the heart: Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander tribes were the first sovereign Nations of the Australian continent and its adjacent islands, and possessed it under our own laws and customs.

This our ancestors did, according to the reckoning of our culture, from the Creation, according to the common law from ‘time immemorial’, and according to science more than 60,000 years ago.

This sovereignty is a spiritual notion: the ancestral tie between the land, or ‘mother nature’, and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who were born therefrom, remain attached thereto, and must one day return thither to be united with our ancestors. This link is the basis of the ownership of the soil, or better, of sovereignty. It has never been ceded or extinguished, and co-exists with the sovereignty of the Crown.

How could it be otherwise? That peoples possessed a land for sixty millennia and this sacred link disappears from world history in merely the last two hundred years?

With substantive constitutional change and structural reform, we believe this ancient sovereignty can shine through as a fuller expression of Australia’s nationhood.

Proportionally, we are the most incarcerated people on the planet. We are not an innately criminal people. Our children are aliened from their families at unprecedented rates. This cannot be because we have no love for them. And our youth languish in detention in obscene numbers. They should be our hope for the future.

These dimensions of our crisis tell plainly the structural nature of our problem. This is the torment of our powerlessness.

We seek constitutional reforms to empower our people and take a rightful place in our own country. When we have power over our destiny our children will flourish. They will walk in two worlds and their culture will be a gift to their country.

We call for the establishment of a First Nations Voice enshrined in the Constitution.Makarrata is the culmination of our agenda: the coming together after a struggle. It captures our aspirations for a fair and truthful relationship with the people of Australia and a better future for our children based on justice and self-determination.

We seek a Makarrata Commission to supervise a process of agreement-making between governments and First Nations and truth-telling about our history.

In 1967 we were counted, in 2017 we seek to be heard. We leave base camp and start our trek across this vast country. We invite you to walk with us in a movement of the Australian people for a better future.

Archbishop’s Student Leadership LuncheonOn the 14th of May 2019, we represented Rosebank College at the Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP Student’s Leadership Luncheon at his home, Cathedral House. Together with other students from inner-west Catholic schools, we discussed and debated a plethora of prevalent social and political issues relating to the church and youth, with the Archbishop. We were also given the opportunity to express our ideas on how the Australian Catholic Church can adjust and develop their approach on appealing the relevance of the faith to the new generation of Australians. We sat at a table with students from Domremy College Five Dock, St Patrick’s Strathfield and Casimir College Marrickville. It was a great opportunity to meet like minded students and gain a deeper understanding of the different dynamics of faith each individual has. To begin the luncheon we were asked some icebreakers to get to know each other, then served lunch. Conversation then followed and we were each given the chance to contribute to conversation and voice our opinions on contemporary issues the church faces. As well as, listening to the opinions of others, addressing the different perspectives and background each had in the faith. Although, we had distinct ways of expressing our viewpoints, in the end we all came to a common consensus’. Topics of discussion on our table included the future of the church in terms of engaging youth more regularly and locally, how to not lose faith when faced with a tragedy, and expression of faith within our Catholic school communities, along with the diverse range of opinions on faith and beliefs within friend groups. Towards the completion of the afternoon each table was given the opportunity to ask a question of the Archbishop that he addressed to the whole room. The first question asked was about the current situation in the Middle East and persecution of Christians resulting in the rapid decline in the percentage of Christians left in their society. In addition to what we, the Australian Catholic Church, is doing to aid those caught in the warfare? The Archbishop responded with the history of the conflict and that the church helps in the ways of the Holy Land collections and much more. Our table asked about not losing faith when faced with tragedy. The Archbishop responded with a personal anecdote of when he suffered with Guillain-Barré Syndrome and the power of prayer. Another significant question asked by a student from St Joseph’s College Hunters Hills was in relation to the diminishing presence of brothers and nuns in Catholic Schools.

It was a very engaging and enjoyable afternoon, and we truly learnt a lot about faith and will cherish the friendships made with other like-minded students. I’m very grateful for the unique and eye-opening opportunity. A huge thank you to Mrs Gow for taking us to the event, our House Coordinators, Mr Galea and especially to the Archbishop for hosting us.
