From Our Head of Junior School
We recognise the importance of reconciliation every day at Saints Girls, but National Reconciliation Week provides a point-in-time opportunity for focused attention. This year’s theme for National Reconciliation Week, ‘Be a Voice for Generations’, encourages all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in our everyday lives. Junior School students and staff continued to develop their understanding about reconciliation in numerous ways this week. These are just some of them:
Reception students began their music lessons this week by singing an Indigenous song called Ngaya Naba which means ‘my family’ or ‘our family’. The girls played along with their non-tuned percussion instruments. They also listened to the sounds of the didgeridoo.
During PE lessons, Reception, Year 1 and 2 students learned about different traditional Indigenous Games. They were taught the story and background of several different games such as Parndo, Mer Kai and Wana.
Year 1 students shared an Aboriginal story each day this week and have been learning Kaurna greetings. Students have been observing changes in the sky and landscape and drawing on First Nations knowledge of Aboriginal Astronomy and Kaurna seasons to expand their learning. They are building an understanding of the importance of The Acknowledgement of Country by exploring the natural, constructed, and managed environments at School and in Bell Yett Reserve, and by considering ways they can care for places.
Our Year 2 EAL/D (English as an additional language or dialect) students investigated the Australian ‘Kutika’ Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo this week. After sharing a book about ‘Kutika’ they asked questions and provided explanations about the relevance of the Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo as a Kaurna symbol; and learned how across Australia the Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo is intertwined in Indigenous histories, cultures and languages.
The Year 3s have been learning about the significance of Reconciliation Week through class discussions, videos and picture books. After exploring the meaning of the Australian Aboriginal flag together, the 3SMU girls created their own depiction of the flag, conveying the meaning of each colour symbolically through their artwork. The 3MOMC students read ‘Finding our Heart’ and discussed the Uluru Statement. They discussed the meaning of the word ‘reconciliation’ and how we can all be a voice and heart for ‘bringing together’. They created a collaborative artwork to symbolise this concept.
The Library has been a hub for deep learning about Reconciliation across the year levels.
Through a selection of picture books by indigenous authors, the Year 1 classes worked towards a better understanding of what ‘reconciliation’ means. They also discussed how our School acknowledgement, in both Kaurna and English, brings together two languages.
The Year 4 library classes investigated reasons for the inclusion of different features in Welcome to Country ceremonies that they had seen. Discussing the information on cards from the ‘Our Land Our Stories’ series, viewing Aunty Joy Murphy read her book ‘Welcome to Country’ and reading from the book ‘Come Together’ by indigenous musician Isaiah Firebrace, all helped to clarify different perspectives and thoughts.
Year 5 library lessons were aimed at increasing understanding of the Stolen Generations through watching a video of Archie Roach’s autobiographical song, ‘Took the Children Away’, followed by the Adam Briggs tribute song to Roach, ‘The Children Came Back’. Students compared the lyrics and mood of the songs, then discussed how the songs viewed the past, present and future for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. They created collections of words and phrases that they felt linked these songs to Reconciliation Week.
Year 6 classes watched video clips during their library lessons relating to events marking the start and end dates for Reconciliation Week, and considered their significance for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. May 27 is the anniversary of the 1967 Referendum that resulted in changes to the Constitution, and 3 June is Mabo Day commemorating an historic legal land rights decision. They also viewed parts of the 2008 Apology to Indigenous Peoples and discussed its connection to the upcoming Australian Indigenous Voice Referendum.
In Art lessons, the journey into Reconciliation Week began last week, with Mya Damon, a Ballardon-Nyoongar (WA) artist, visiting for a full day to work with Year 5 and 6 students. Mya shared her artwork and told some of the stories behind them. Many topics were discussed, including what makes a community, the purpose of Reconciliation Week, and the 2023 Referendum. Mya shared some signs and symbols from her mob and encouraged the students to design similar symbols that represent a special community or a symbol that represents themselves. Mya then helped students add these to seven large collaborative paintings. We are delighted to have Mya back next term to help us finish painting the canvases.
It wasn’t just students expanding their understanding and developing their appreciation of local Aboriginal culture and connection to land this week. Junior School teachers enjoyed a very informative investigation of the features and plants of Ferguson Park. ELC teacher Nell Tierney shared some of the wonderful learning she had acquired through working with Kaurna Elder, Uncle Tamaru, and explained properties and uses of some of the plants, known to Aboriginal people for thousands of years.
We encourage families to talk with students about their learning during Reconciliation Week, and to find opportunities to continue these conversations throughout the year.

The Countdown to Matilda the Musical Begins!
You might know the story of Roald Dahl’s Matilda. You might have seen the 1996 movie starring a young Mara Wilson, or the 2022 musical on Netflix. You might even have been lucky enough to see Matilda live on stage. But let me tell you – our Matilda, featuring over 70 students on stage and supported by over 30 more in the band and behind the scenes, is a whole new level of magic!
The School Musical is held every two years. Matilda will be the third production I have had the pleasure of being involved with and each year I don’t think the standard can get any better – but the bar just keeps getting raised higher and higher! The talent pool here at Saints Girls is just huge. Auditions were an absolute delight – watching and listening to an extraordinary group of girls made casting such a difficult task. If only there were more parts!
Our younger students in particular really excited us, giving us so much confidence in the continuing growth of the Arts Programs at our school. Since then, we have been hard at work singing, dancing, playing, creating, sewing, painting and organising our way to excellence and we are almost ready to present to you our spectacular production of Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical.
We have a stellar cast and crew, featuring some of Saints Girls’ most talented singers, dancers, actors and musicians. One of the best things about working with these girls is their ability to use their initiative, be resourceful, and take ownership of their work. You will see many outstanding dance pieces choreographed by our Assistant Choreographer and Year 12 student, Amelie Zacharia Henley, scenes self-directed by the actors, and costumes selected and made by the ensemble themselves.
This is one of the things I am most proud of – the way our musical is truly a product of the hard work and creativity of our staff and students. Putting on a Musical is an absolutely massive task. Our staff have put in hundreds of hours of work to ensure that what you’re going to see on stage next week is the absolute best piece of musical theatre it could be, so I want to give a shout out to the incredible talent of Kate Burnett, Sally Rounsevell, Joni Combe, Scott Lorien and Kirsten Mansfield. The talented cast – particularly ‘Matilda’ (played by the extraordinarily talented Maddy Schroeter) and her classmates – have also dedicated many extra hours outside of ‘normal’ rehearsals to perfect choreography and singing.
Please join us on June 7, 8 and 9 to experience St Peter’s Girls’ present Matilda the Musical. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

SACE Stage 2 Dancers Take Centre Stage
Well done to our SACE Stage 2 Dance Choreographers on their stunning performance of ‘CREATE23.’
The students worked tirelessly to develop their own dance pieces for assessment, choosing a theme to form their choreography around. Students were able to select external dancers or use themselves in their dance.
A special mention goes to the Year 9 and 10 dancers also involved in this performance. It was a wonderful evening for the dance community in supporting our students and their creative work!

Ethics Students Raise Their Voice
Last Wednesday, eight of our Senior School students represented St Peter’s Girls in the state Ethics Olympiad. The Ethics Olympiad is an excellent opportunity to discuss current ethical issues in our society and collaborate with teams from other schools to answer a set of questions about these dilemmas.
Both senior teams worked extremely hard in preparation for this event, familiarising ourselves with the eight ethical cases and building up knowledge and research, enabling us to discuss the issues from many perspectives. This effort is reflected in the results with our team of Year 12 students placing 1st, and our Year 7 – 11 team placing 4th. The girls are congratulated on their fantastic achievement and hope to continue their success in the National Ethics Olympiad in July.

Beating Plastic for Environment Day
On Monday 5 June we will celebrate World Environment Day, a day where people take the opportunity to actively and consciously support the environment. This year’s theme focusses on solutions to plastic pollution under the campaign #BeatPlasticPollution.
The World Environment Day website states, ‘The world is being inundated by plastic. More than 400 million tonnes of plastic is produced every year, half of which is designed to be used only once. Of that, less than 10% is recycled. An estimated 19-23 million tonnes end up in lakes, rivers and seas. Today, plastic clogs our landfills, leaches into the ocean and is combusted into toxic smoke, making it one of the gravest threats to the planet.’
Additionally, microplastics always find their way into the food we eat, our drinking water and even the air we breathe. Many plastic products contain extremely harmful and dangerous additives, which absolutely poses a threat to our health now and in the future.
Luckily, many scientists around the world are working on solutions to tackle this issue, and a lot is already happening. What we need the most now is a surge of public and political support to help speed up actions from governments and companies to solve this crisis. This highlights the importance of this World Environment Day commencing action from every corner of the world.
World Environment Day 2023 will showcase how countries, businesses and individuals are learning to use materials around the world more sustainably, offering hope that one day, plastic pollution will be history.
The Environment Club provide all students the opportunity to collect plastic recyclable items at school, as picture above.

Year 3s Historical Library Learnings
The Year 3 classes recently visited the Burnside Library for some educational sessions.
With the guidance of a History and Cultural Officer, we first viewed some treasures from the Local History room, including past maps, books, objects and newspapers related to the Burnside district. This linked with our Unit of Inquiry ‘Where we are in place and time’ and deepened our understanding of primary and secondary sources of information.
For our second session, we met author Corinne Fenton, who shared her writing and research processes involved in creating some of her picture books. In honour of May being History month, Corinne also described the historical background behind some of her stories. We had many questions and Corinne was kind enough to answer these with detailed responses and interesting anecdotes.

EDGE Girls Launch into STEM Workshop
Last Monday the Year 7 EDGE girls took part in a workshop run by the University of Adelaide. We learnt about rockets and the scientific methods and reasoning involved in simple and complex rockets which we really enjoyed as we are studying STEM as our focus this term.
We started off learning about the different types of rockets – I hadn’t realised how simple rockets could be! Did you know that by blowing up a balloon and then releasing it you are creating a rocket? We explored Newtons Laws of Motion and the forces required when sending a rocket off into space, then we looked at the companies and programs involved in space exploration.
Our main task for this lesson, however, was to create a rocket with a skewer and a matchstick-head rolled in foil. The chemical reaction in the matchstick created a gas which built up in the foil and, when it released, the foil was propelled by the built up gases.
This workshop was very engaging and it was a great team activity as everyone was really involved and became quite competitive!

Performing Arts Dinner Highlights
Last Friday evening, we held the inaugural Performing Arts Dinner in our Arts Centre. It was an amazing and successful evening, with delicious food and a vibrant atmosphere made up of Performing Arts students, parents and staff, with the assistance of our wonderful DJ, Angus Brill-Reed providing the music.
We were lucky enough to hear from industry guest speakers; Rachael Beck (singer/actress), Zoe Komazec (Mary Poppins the Musical), Jack Ziesing (Stephanie Lake Dance Company) and our very own Izzy Norman (Patteson 2020, Bachelor of Music), all providing some insight into their career pathways and journey throughout the Performing Arts industry.
We also enjoyed fantastic live performances throughout the night including Old Scholar Alex De Porteous (Patteson 2016) who shared her beautiful voice with us.
My (Zara) highlight from the night was our amazing Staff band, who blew everyone away with their renditions of ‘Flowers’ by Miles Cyrus and ‘Ease on Down the Road’ by Charlie Smalls.
I (Amelie) thought it was wonderful to see the bond between some of our oldest and youngest Performing Arts girls celebrating the community we love.
It was a perfect way to celebrate our Performing Arts within the school community, hear from industry professionals and hit the dance floor together! We are so grateful to everyone who supported us with this evening, it was a very special night. Thank you also to the Friends of the Arts for their continued support.

1. First Place: Madeleine Andrejewskis
• Ending Portfolio Value: $54,832.17
• ROI: 9.66%
• Strategy: Madeleine went above and beyond and sought the advice from a financial planner, following their advice. Luckily, her advisor didn’t let her down.
2. Second Place: Lily Forby
• Ending Portfolio Value: $53,275.20
• ROI: 6.6%
• Strategy: Lily looked at the historical data and trends for each company and read some news about whether the company would continue to be popular. If she felt that it would be, she bought shares.
3. Third Place: Abbey Phillips
• Ending Portfolio Value: $53,207.00
• ROI: 6.414%

Spread Drive Supporting KickStart for Kids
This term, Junior School students are invited to participate in the KickStart for Kids Breakfast Spread Drive. This drive is an initiative organised as a collaborative project between a group of Year 12 students and the Year 6 Student Ambassadors. It is aimed at raising awareness about other children in our community and the work of KickStart for Kids.
KickStart for Kids is a South Australian organisation that aims to create an equal chance for all children to succeed in life. They run breakfast and lunch programs to provide meals for children who go to school hungry. Students are better able to focus, interact with others, and perform well in class when they have eaten nutritious meals.
KickStart for Kids relies on contributions from the community. So, we invite Junior School students to bring in breakfast spreads, such as jams, Vegemite and honey to support this organisation and support the children who benefit from their programs. Please don’t bring products that contain nuts. There will be a collection box located near the Junior School Library from next week until the end of the term.

Piano Eisteddfod – Register Now
On Thursday 22 June in Week 9 of Term 2, the Arts Department will hold St Peter’s Girls’ Piano Eisteddfod. It is open to all Junior and Middle School students who play piano. Parents are welcome to attend, and the time of each student’s performance will be communicated to families.
Girls will have the opportunity to perform a piece to a panel of judges, who will critique their performance based on accuracy, technique and musicality for their specific music level. This is a great opportunity for girls to perform in a supportive environment and receive some valuable feedback.
Girls are asked to play one piece that best displays their musicality and technical ability at their own musical level. There will be no minimum or maximum time limit. While the Eisteddfod provides our top piano players with a platform to perform, the aim is to give performers of all levels the opportunity to participate.
A Piano Recital will be held on Thursday 29 June at 6pm. Students will be chosen from the Eisteddfod performers who show confidence and a high level of musicianship. Selected recital students will be notified by email.
If your daughter would like to be involved, please complete and return the Piano Eisteddfod Consent Form by Tuesday 13 June. Girls can collect the form from the Arts Office or you can download it via the link below. Students will later receive their time slot to perform in the Eisteddfod.

In Weeks 5 and 6, IGSSA (Independent Girls’ Schools Sporting Association) is celebrating Reconciliation Round. Each IGSSA school is encouraged to celebrate these rounds in their own way. Saints chose to do the following:
• Indigenous ribbons were provided to all Year 3 – 12 teams to wear during these rounds
• Our teams lined up facing the opposition at the start of the game and recited our Indigenous acknowledgement
• At the conclusion of the game, our coach presented the best player from the opposition team with a Best Player medal
• Teams came together and had a team photo post-match
Our Sports Captains have further celebrated Reconciliation Round by decorating the school with themed balloons, streamers and Reconciliation Sport Posters.
The theme for National Reconciliation Week 2023, ‘Be a Voice for Generations’, encourages all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in tangible ways in our everyday lives – where we live, work, socialise and play sport.
Links to further information, facts, posters, social tiles and other resources from Reconciliation Australia are available at National Reconciliation Week – Reconciliation Australia.
