Term 1 - 21 February 2018

From the Principal


In a year where ‘Connectedness’ is our whole school focus, we will have the opportunity to contemplate the nature of authentic relationships and, in particular, to consider how these can be founded in a strong sense of fairness, justice and respect. So will you celebrate St Valentine’s Day next week as the annual day, carefully crafted by advertisers, where you are able to make a public statement about ‘love’? Some of you may well receive bundles of loving correspondence, boxes of chocolates, and bunches of flowers, although I’m sure many of you, like me, will probably not receive …

Chaplain’s Corner


In his book The Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell writes of a community living in Pennsylvania who had initially come from Italy. Although their diet was not at all good and the men smoked like there was no tomorrow, the incidence of heart disease was almost unknown for men under 65. This was during the time when heart disease was the cause of death for more men in the USA than any other reason.

Researchers looked into this and discovered that the richness of relationship that the Rosetans shared with one another was what set them apart from other communities …

Performing Arts News


During a recent conversation with a friend and colleague of mine, a discussion took place about the inherent satisfaction of home renovation. We hypothesised that the intense gratification felt after building (or demolishing) something might be amplified for musicians because these are tasks that have a finite outcome and can actually be finished, where artistic pursuits are rather more open ended. Our work as performing artists is never finished as such. There is always a better tone to be produced, cleaner articulation to strive for, a better …
