From the acting Chaplain
A journey of discovery
As someone who has been part of the School community for the past nine years as a parent and then as a staff husband, it was a very easy decision to accept Julia’s invitation to be Acting Chaplain while Rev. Natasha was on leave. The hidden joy was the new journey of discovery for myself as I began my time with the Saints Girls’ community.
I had previously been the Chaplain of Middle School at Melbourne Grammar, an all-boys school. How different St Peter’s Girls is to that! I had also been ‘out of school’ for some 14 years. So, it was going to be a challenge to remember how to ‘ride the bike’, as the saying goes. The first discovery was that the heart for our children and youth was as strong today as it has always been. Our children are such a precious gift to us, not just to individual families, but also to the whole of our community. The life, adventure, energy and passion that they bring is a wonderful, wonderful thing.
The second discovery is a shared discovery with the students. I began my time in the lead-up to Christmas (the season of Advent) and we are now in the lead-up to Easter (the season of Lent). These times mark the two great significant events of the Christian church – the life and death/resurrection of Jesus. The challenge is the question of relevance and meaning for us today. How does our story interact with the story of Jesus? How do the teachings of Jesus speak to us today? As you are no doubt aware, our students are quick to point out if they don’t see relevance or purpose. Our society today moves onto the new at an ever-quickening pace. In our chapel time we deliberately pause and go a bit slower and consider bigger things. This journey of discovery is one done in community together. What, I hope, we have discovered is that there is a richness in the wisdom that can come from a relationship with God. We have looked at a number of people throughout history and the present, whose faith has led them to be extraordinary people in their contribution to society. We have seen how when stories come together they can lead to great things.
A third discovery has been one driven by pragmatics. With the new developments the Chapel has temporarily been transformed into the Resource Centre. So, our chapel services are conducted in the Arts Centre. With use of familiar symbols – a holy table with candles, robes and a picture of the Chapel – and with the familiar aspects of Chapel – singing, Bible readings, prayer and a reflection – we have been able to find ‘sacred space.’ This is a significant discovery because it reminds us that it is not the surrounds or situation we find ourselves in, but our attitude and heart that are important.
The season of Lent is a journey of self-reflection. It follows the example of Jesus’ testing in the wilderness. Thankfully, we are not called to go into the wilderness for 40 days without food. But, there is a significant lesson to us of the need to test our resolve and to explore ourselves. This is an important aspect of the outdoor education program of the School. During Lent, we are encouraged to do this spiritually. It is a journey worth taking. It is a journey that promises great blessings – the blessings of a deeper knowledge not just of ourselves, but also of God’s great love for us, seen in the wonderful events of Easter.
I am loving my journey of discovery here at St Peter’s Girls, and am so thankful that I can take it with the students, staff and wider community.

Last Thursday, the Stage 1 and Stage 2 dancers had the privilege of participating in an in-house workshop with the highly experienced freelance choreographer and contemporary dancer, Jack Ziesing. Jack has been training and performing both interstate and internationally continuously over the past eight years, so we were extremely appreciative to fit into his busy schedule after his performances at WOMAD. As the Stage 2 dancers are in the early processes of choreographing their individual end of year compositions, the workshop was focussed largely on choreography and the ‘light and shade’ in movements. Jack began by writing down and informing us of the ways in which he typically builds his choreography. Rather than combining ‘trick’ after ‘trick’, his approach explores the manipulation of certain body parts and the dynamics that movements can be performed.
One of the components of the workshop was working with a partner to create eight counts of movement. To build this, one partner stood with her eyes shut while the other partner would push a body part, which was then the main origin of movement. The challenge was to manipulate only the selected body part, with any additional movement being a result of, as Jack called it, the ‘engine’ or centre of movement. Once everyone had eight counts of choreography, we explored dynamics, altering the movements to fit certain words such as thrashing, throwing and protecting.
This workshop gave an amazing insight into how to create inventive choreography. I know that I can say, on behalf of all the dancers, that Jack was incredibly instructive and gave us more of an understanding of the depths of contemporary dance. Jack’s advice and instruction on how he develops movement is going to be an amazing help in the upcoming term.

Dads Night Out – A night on the green
Don’t miss this year’s Dads Night Out for some barefoot bowling fun.
Come on dads – bring a mate, meet the other fathers at St Peter’s Girls and have a blast!
“The Dads’ Night Out in 2016 was a fantastic event and was greatly enjoyed by all involved. I’ve been a father at the School for a number of years and my wife is an Old Scholar as well, so I’ve attended a few events in that time. This particular night was a great way for me to catch up with other fathers I know well and also meet the new fathers who have only recently become parents at the School. The bowling aspect was fun; we all had a bit of a laugh and obviously the games resulted in a cheeky competitiveness amongst the dads. I highly recommend that all fathers attend this year to support the School and continue to foster these community connections that are so unique to Saints Girls.”
A testimonial from Darren McCormack, dad of Matilda, Year 9

Open A – Saints 20 defeated by Wilderness 38
Another great effort played by the Open A basketball team this week! The girls were focussed against Wilderness and were able to shoot more accurately under pressure, as well as box out and play strongly defensively. Special mention to Sindhu Nedumaran for boxing out in defence well and getting rebounds off the other team, allowing the girls to take the ball back down to the other end of the court and shoot. Chelsea Marchetti (Captain)
Middle A – Saints 16 defeated by Wilderness 34
One of the most consistent matches for the Middle As this season, with two solid halves of basketball. Stand outs in defence were Rachel Banham and Zara Sadri who were able to cause many turnovers. Top scorers this week were Ella Liddy and Sophie Norman. Thank you to Sophie for playing both As and Bs this week. Vanessa Brooks (Supervisor)
Middle B – Saints 18 defeated by Wilderness 23
A very even match this week, which the girls could have won if they were able to convert more of their many scoring opportunities. Fantastic ball movement into attack from Kellie Bested, Ashley Piper and Indya Dodd. Saints girls demonstrated fantastic team pressure in defence, as well as good communication throughout the match. Vanessa Brooks (Supervisor)
Wednesday 15 March
Year 6 – Saints 9 defeated Pembroke Blue 1
The girls battled with determination through the heat to get a win this week, and it was much deserved. All girls have been improving their skills on field, particularly their ‘stealing’ while base running. Highlights were the strong batting of Emma Pool and Willow Stewart-Rattray, as well as the amazing teamwork of Emily Bryce and Grace Richards as first base and pitcher respectively. We wish the girls trialling for the SAPSASA team all the best. Lydia Smalls and Jasmine Ledgard (Coaches)
Teeball Blue – Saints 17 defeated Walford 8
The Year 4/5 blue teeball team had an incredible game against Walford. The girls played a great game, with Dani Cox and Scarlett Dillon making great hits and getting girls home.

Teeball White – Saints 13 defeated by St Andrew’s 14
A great effort by the girls to only go down by one run in a close game. It is great that they are adapting to play and improving on their running and fielding. Keep up the fantastic work! Lucinda Tierney (Coach)
Thursday 16 March
Open A – Saints 7 defeated Wilderness 3
This was a fast-paced game right from the start, and the girls worked hard to score whilst ensuring they applied pressure on their opponents when defending. There were many steals from the applied pressure, which allowed Saints to attack regularly. Special mentions go to Mikaela Georgiadis and Katherine Woolley on outstanding games. Sarah Richards (Captain)
Open B – Saints 9 defeated St Ignatius 3
The girls demonstrated great teamwork and strong persistence in defence. Once again, the pressure from the defence provided numerous turnovers and allowed Saints multiple opportunities for shots in attack. Well done to Rose Pittman, Sarah Richards and Olivia Goldsmith who all had strong performances. Lynne Spry (Supervisor)
Open C – Saints 8 defeated Wilderness 1
The girls had another great game, with strong pressure applied to gain possession and turn defence into attack. Overall, this was another great performance heading into the finals in two weeks’ time. Best players this week were Sophie LeMire and Ebony-Jade Nash-Smith. Sarah Richards (Captain)

This week all girls played well and have improved greatly since their first game on 16 February. Heather Lines (Supervisor)

Year 8A – The crew of Sophie Kameniar, Ella Waltham, Olivia Kelly and Keely Flannagan competed in two races. In the heat we came in third, meaning we qualified for the B final. We took the lead early in the final but in the last 100m Walford managed to catch us. We are all looking forward to the Head of the River this week. It has been a great season. Jodi Papendorf (Cox)
The Year 8B coxed crew did a great job last Saturday. Molly Bond, Gemma Schaedel, Sara Peak and Rose Young put in an amazing amount of effort. We aimed to come at least third and we achieved that goal in the first race. Unfortunately, we didn’t start well in the final race; however, the girls pushed hard to get to the finish line and felt they rowed better than they ever had before. We are all looking forward to the Head of the River on Saturday. Trinity Nelson (Cox)
Saturday 18 March
Open A – Saints 9 defeated Pulteney 2
Saints Open As had an outstanding game against Pulteney. After a close first innings of 3-1, Saints began to break away with many hits and these resulting in runs. As always, Aroha Munroe and Imogen Parker did an outstanding job pitching and catching. Everyone had an excellent turn at bat, in particular Molly Ellis who consistently hits at a high standard. Each player had an exceptional game, working together as a team. This win brings us another step closer to winning the Shield. Jasmine Ledgard (Captain)

Open A – Saints 3 defeated Wilderness 0 (25-14, 25-11, 25-8)
The girls this week were a force to be reckoned with. The entire team came out firing to defeat Wilderness convincingly in all three sets. Emily Murdock stood out this week with her excellent sets setting up the team for a great attack. Brooke Elliott’s wonderful blocking also maintained the upper hand for the girls. This great team is enjoying their successes and looking forward to more challenges to prove how much they have all improved. Abbey Goodwin (Captain)
Open B – Saints 1 defeated by Wilderness 2
The Open Bs played a tense, tight match against Wilderness before going down 2 – 1 (25-23 in the third). In the first set the girls were quiet and Wilderness were able to get on top, with our lack of communication an issue. There was a fantastic turnaround in the second set where our girls’ enthusiasm was ignited and we were able to win the set. A great finish ensued but we unfortunately ended on the wrong side of the ledger. There were great spikes by Grace Dawson, consistent passes from Ava Loechel and strong serving from Qianna Huang and Charlotte Carney. Dan Searle (Supervisor)
Open C – Saints 3 defeated Wilderness 0
The Open Cs had an excellent win on Saturday against Wilderness. Everyone played well, the spirits were kept high and the result was extremely pleasing. Best players were Lauren Hernan, Isabella Villani, Catherine Neale and Mary Brownridge. Georgia Howe (Coach)
Open D – Saints 3 defeated Wilderness 0
The Open Ds had a great win against Wilderness on the weekend. After a slow first set, the girls lifted their energy and played incredibly.

Middle A – Saints 1 defeated by Wilderness 2
The Middle As had a hard game this week, unfortunately losing in a close three-set match. For the first time, the girls were put under game pressure but, despite this, managed to keep up the enthusiasm and motivation, which was great to see. Siena Kulinski and Sarah Wishart, in particular, had great games, with great serving from Siena to secure us the first set and good presence at the net from Sarah who finished numerous points by either blocking or spiking the ball back at our opponents. Victoria Neale (Coach)
Middle B – Saints 3 defeated Wilderness 0
Our Middle B team had another comfortable win this week, remaining undefeated so far this year. The girls played well as a team and, in particular, Paris Greene served well and Emily Dobson-May was very enthusiastic and moved brilliantly around the court. Victoria Neale (Coach)
Middle C – Saints 3 defeated Woodcroft 0
Saints started very well, with some excellent serving from Sarah Gulliver and Zhangyu Han. There were many contributions and girls moving into position to support players to create second and third shot efforts. Jia Wen Feng, Jenna Bowden and Jiayi Wang also had solid games with some consistent serving. Neil Fuller (Supervisor)
Monday 20 March
