From the Headmaster

Dear Parents, 

Fifty-four of my colleagues including the Deputy Headmaster, headed off for camps on Monday. Ruby, the hound and I came in to farewell the 6.30am departures. I am delighted to report that no boys were late withdrawals due to an over-friendly Jack Russell. I admire all staff who have gone away, ensuring that the experiences of the Outdoor Activities Programs at Years 10 and 11 and the Music Camp at Years 7 and 8 will be woven into the learning here across the next few terms, due to the staff walking both figuratively and literally with our boys.

Whilst singing the praises of staff, it is also appropriate to acknowledge the mountain of work and commitment made to the summer sports programs by all involved. The Teachers-in-Charge roles are challenging administrative roles and all coaching positions, from a rowing crew to a badminton side, require commitment and generosity. I do hope every boy took up my request to personally thank their coach and manager.

We hosted the APS/AGS representative fixtures here on Tuesday for boys and girls and recognise the adroit organisation of our Dean of Sport, Mr Travers, and his Assistant Dean of Sport, Mr O’Brien for that day and ever more importantly, for the season past. Our APS representatives were:

  Badminton
Morrison Siu
  Squash
Nicholas Gibbs (Captain), David Dassie, Nicholas Myrtle, Jake Victor
  Tennis
Todd Millington
  Volleyball
Darcy Bolton

The various Presentation Evenings gave us the chance to celebrate involvement and recognise some individuals. Thanks to the TICs and parent committees who assisted. The evenings I attended were wonderful celebrations of community. Sincere thanks to those who heeded my appeal to dress to match the requirements we place on your sons and to those who were timely in their responses. Sadly, I think it is necessary that I support the TICs and parent committees by stating publicly that there must be a cut off point for replies to allow cost-effective and professional catering and set up. It may well result in some disappointment from families who miss the regular calls in the newsletter to book.

Senior studies are also receiving focus at this time. The first of our Year 13-led seminars was held last week. It was fantastic to witness the attentiveness of our Year 12 boys to past scholars and bodes well for the program we will put in place led by these talented old collegians across the months leading to the VCE. This week, our senior year will be deeply involved in assessments and examinations which will then give us the academic tidal mark from which we will assault the VCE battlements. Rest assured, our boys will be highly trained and mentally armed to scale and overcome the 2014 VCE.

Boys return next term in winter uniform across the College. Please ensure personal grooming, particularly hair, matches the smartness of the more formal uniform. We are considering taking the wearing of the formal uniform through until Melbourne Cup weekend. Boys for some years have commented that early Term IV still requires a jacket, long trousers for Years 7-12 and the warmth that a top button done up and tie brings.

Finally, may I wish the blessings of Easter to all our community. I pray that the joy of the Resurrection is a wonderful family and parish celebration at the end of the holiday break.



Kind regards



Stephen F Russell

Faith and Mission

For those whom they love

Even with Years 10 and 11 on camp and many musicians also away, there has been the usual buzz of activity around Heyington this week. There have been AGS/APS sporting fixtures, Year 12 students coming and going from exams and workmen attending to maintenance. The place is never quiet. Strangely enough, this is the perfect backdrop for Year 7 and 8 to commemorate the suffering and death of Jesus as they have followed the cross around the school in a traditional ‘way of the cross.’ The world did not stop for the torture of Jesus. The Romans brutalised thousands of people in this grubby way from one end of their empire to the other. If anybody paid much attention, it was to a grim form of entertainment.

In Mark’s gospel, the crowd which howled for the blood of Jesus seems to take a back seat once Pilate, more interested in keeping things under control than in justice, handed Jesus over to be crucified. When the mob reappears for a moment, it says simply ‘the passers-by jeered at him.’ Jesus was a momentary amusement. People thought there were more important things happening that day. There weren’t. Nor did anything more important happen on any day before or since. The death of Jesus is the cornerstone of all history. The event is the key to what it means to be human. We are loved by God even in our darkest hour. God can be creative even with our destructiveness. The event which should reduce us to silence happened amid noise and chaos. With each passing year, Good Friday seems to have more of the flavour of ‘business as usual.’ We all need to find time to listen deeply, with our whole being, to the story of the death of Jesus.

The way of the cross at St Kevin’s was led by some of the students from Year 10 and 11 who were unable to go on OAP. They each wrote reflections on what the passion narrative means to them and to us in this vast city twenty centuries later. Here are some snippets:

The story of Jesus’ death reveals many aspects of humanity. In our journey through the Stations of the Cross, many figures are introduced. One of these is Jesus’ friend, Peter. Jesus asked Peter to stay awake while he was praying but Peter fell asleep. What’s more, when the authorities came to arrest Jesus, Peter denied knowing him three times. How many times do we deny something, to protect our interests, even when we put the needs of others in danger?

Another figure is Pontius Pilate. Pilate had responsibility over Jesus’ fate. He denied his morality – he knew Jesus had committed no crime – and sentenced Jesus to death. How many times do we allow the pressure of the majority to collapse our moral strongholds? Pilate washed his hands to symbolise any guilt for his unjust sentencing being washed away, but does this really make him innocent again? We can’t turn a blind eye on our poor actions. Likewise, we can’t turn a blind eye on those who are in need.

Judas, one of Jesus’ disciples, denied his responsibility as a disciple of Jesus, betraying him to authorities. Is it right to hand over an innocent man for money? How many times are you bribed for something, or do you give way to temptation for a moment’s satisfaction, and what benefit do you gain, as a person, from this?

Tom Bailey

The story of Jesus death is important to me because it forms the basis of all my beliefs. Jesus’ actions show what a truly amazing person he was and they display some of the characteristics that should be more evident today, such as perseverance. From the story we can learn about the brutality and darkness of human nature. Pilate and Peter succumb to peer pressure due to the mob mentality of the people. Pilate sent an innocent man to his death. Yet even though all his friends and disciples abandoned him, Jesus didn’t revolt. His attitude convinced the centurion that he was God’s son. Simon of Cyrene was taken off the streets to help Jesus but such kindness was rare amid the brutality. From the characters in the passion, we can learn a lot about perseverance, kindness, betrayal and peer pressure. Jesus was willing to accept his death for others.

Joseph Arthur

Some people may find it hard to learn from such a gruesomely realistic story as that of the death of Jesus. When we hear about the serious pain suffered by Jesus, it makes us feel sympathy for those enduring pain and suffering today. The story of Jesus brings hope to anyone living with drugs, alcohol or the effects of crime. We need to think that Jesus did this for us and by choice, not because he was forced to.

Tom Cheney

The story of Jesus shows determination and resilience in tough times. Peter shows how scared the disciples were. The scene where the guards come to arrest Jesus shows that the guards did not understand Jesus and were actually scared of him. Pontius Pilate was weak and allowed justice to be overturned by the people. Jesus was willing to accept being crucified because he knew it was the work of God.

Ben Wallace


This story is a reminder of what people can do for others. It is a constant reminder of what people can do for those whom they love.

Guest Speaker: Mr Adam O’Donnell

Adam O'Donnell is an ordinary bloke who has had the privilege of doing extraordinary things whilst serving as a Team Commander in the British Army's Special Air Service and with the Australian Commandos.

His service has taken him all over the world, from the challenge of negotiating a peaceful resolution to an armed stand-off between warring factions in Bosnia to the exhilaration of parachuting into the Indian Ocean at night and from the freezing heights of Mt Everest to the scorching heat of the Afghan desert where, in 2006, he spent the longest night of his life awaiting the arrival of 400 heavily armed Taliban intent on killing him and his team - all 13 of them.
He's been charged by elephants, slept on by a yak and shared a trench with a large, and as yet unidentified, snake. As a relative newcomer to the "Lucky Country" he's still learning just how many of the world’s most lethal creatures "still call Australia home".

Recording of Occupations

During 2013 the Old Collegians' Association ran several cocktail evenings for specific occupation groups and we intend to do the same in 2014. The nights were a great success, with many a story and business network cemented in the common experience of being a Kevinian. 
The St Kevin's Old Collegians' data base needs to have a record of the occupations so that invitations can be sent to the correct people. We are very keen for all Kevinians to nominate their occupation but specifically this year we would like to hear from all those in Entertainment/ Media/Music/Theatre and another group we will call 'all of those of the Noble Profession' (education). 

Please contact Kevin Culliver (Executive Officer SKOCA) old-collegians@stkevins.vic.edu.au

Careers

This week we would like to thank the Year 10s for their patience following the DAT testing last week. In particular, thanks goes to those students required to re-sit one or two of the tests due to some technical difficulties on the day. Our task is to collate all results for presentation to parents and students at the DAT Testing Report Evening on Tuesday May 13 after which all Year 10 students and parents will be asked to make a Careers Appointment to discuss their results and for initial VCE subject planning.

This is a final reminder to Year 12 students who would like to have an initial Careers Appointment prior to Term 3 that they will only be able to book in Weeks 1 to 3 of Term 2 after which appointments will be reserved for Year 10 students.

Cycling Victoria - School Criterium Series

 
Sam Bascombe's sprint finish
 

The final two races took place on Friday at Casey Fields in Cranbourne. The weather was beautiful and the quality of cycling even better. St. Kevin's finished second overall to a very strong Scotch Team. Highlights included the tremendous courage shown by Julian Guinane to stay with our two strongest cyclists in the under 19 Team Time Trial, The teamwork shown by our under 17's and the podium finish achieved by both year 7 teams. In the individual Criterium, a special mention must go to Sam Bascombe in the under 15 A division who forced the pace for 10 km's and then still had enough left for a sprint finish that he won by less than half a wheel. A fantastic day was had by all and a very big thank you goes out to those parents who assisted with preparing their boys and those that helped on the day with transport and support.
