The Lion's Roar - 21 August 2019 | 21 August 2019
In order to accommodate the many buses that will be required to transport Middle and Senior School students to the State Athletics Centre for the Carnival on Friday 23 August, there will be a significant impact on parking and kiss 'n drive areas in the morning and again in the afternoon.
There will be a number of buses parked at the northern entrance (Whitfords Ave entrance), which will limit parking in this area, with additional buses parked on St Marks Dr and within the School grounds.
We strongly encourage families to consider parking off site (for example, near the Muzz Buzz kiosk or around Belrose Park) and make use of the manned crosswalks on Endeavour Rd and Whitfords Ave. We want to ensure all our students get to School safely, so we encourage you to be extra vigilant during drop off and pick up times on Friday.
Thank you for your cooperation.
St Mark's Stars
Jasper Forder (CH8.2) was recently selected by Hockey WA to represent WA as part of the State U13 squad. Four WA teams (two boys and two girls teams) will travel to Hobart, Tasmania, to compete in the U13 Australian Hockey Carnival from 2-8 October 2019. Best of luck in your preparation, Jasper!
Caitlin Madden (C9.1) will be putting her Orienteering skills to the test as she participates in the 2019 Australian Schools Orienteering Championships to be held in Wagga Wagga (NSW) and Beachworth (Victoria) next month. Caitlin and her WA teammates will participate in a variety of disciplines, including Sprint, Individual and Relay events, as well as Long and Middle Distance races. Enjoy the experience, Caitlin!
Three St Mark's boys will represent Western Australia as the Soccer National Youth Champions in Coffs Harbour later this year, with Daniel Bennie (W8.2) and Benjamin Heppenstall (W8.1) in the Gold Fields State Under 13 Team, and Darius Andres (C9.2) in the Gold Fields State U14 Team.
Rachel Donne (6.6) represented Western Australia in the 2019 AFL 15s Girls Championships in Tasmania, which took place earlier this month. Well done on your selection to the Team, Rachel!

St Mark's was ably represented at the Annual IPSHA Speakers' Challenge, with Year 4 students Cara Kennedy (4TD) and Cadel Coffin (4DOW), doing very well indeed. Both Cara and Cadel came away with Bronze medals!
This year, the St Mark’s Netball club has been fortunate enough to field twelve teams over the Winter season. Our teams are made up of players from Year 2 through to the Year 8. We have played in two associations' competitions this season, Wanneroo District Netball Association (WDNA) and the Joondalup Netball Association (JNA).
We would like to thank all the parents who have volunteered to coach and manage teams, as well as the parents who have scored and timed during the season. We have also been very fortunate to have St Mark’s students umpiring matches for us. Thank you to Evie Wright (W10.2), Emily Bell (M10.1), Jesseca Owen (M12.2), Isabella Dalton (CH10.1), and Mia Gonano (CH9.2).
This year we are very excited to be playing in new uniforms and are very grateful to Craig Scafidas of Kids College for sponsoring the replacement uniforms. We have recycled the old uniforms by donating them to Fair Game who distribute donated items to communities who are in need of sporting equipment.
This season has seen our Teams compete in some very high divisions in the Junior section of the competition. Two Junior Teams were moved up into Division 2, and although they will not reach the finals, competing in Division 2 has been a good challenge for them. One of the Year 4 teams competed under JNA, where the girls have had to play against an age group slightly higher than their current year group and with goal posts higher than those used in the NetSetGo Tier. The remainder of our players competing in the NetSetGo competitions have had great fun playing on Friday nights, with some teams having many a convincing win. Well done to our Year 2 Team who played netball matches for the first time this year.
We are opening our Spring registrations to all existing players and welcome new players. Spring season netball is a great option for those who want to try netball for the first time. It is a fun way to start playing: there is no training and the games are more social in nature. Games take place on Wednesday afternoons/evenings. To register please follow the links, or for additional information please contact Lynne Jooste at email@example.com or 0448 976 762:

Around the School
Last Friday evening, in the midst of the big storm, a group of 14 students and two staff headed to Optus Stadium to join hundreds of students from other schools supporting the Anglicare WA School Sleep Out. The experience was designed to give the students a taste of what life is like as a homeless person in Perth, by camping out in the cold corridors of the stadium.
As part of the program, students had specific tasks to complete, such as submitting paperwork and queuing at the 'offices' for Centrelink and the Department of Housing, amongst others. At intervals during the night, students were woken and asked to 'move on' by officials. The initial high spirits of the evening quickly tapered down as the students experienced the frustration of not being able to get assistance easily, and not being able to settle for the night.
The St Mark's representatives were from the Year 11 cohort: Camille Teyssier, Abigail Shackleton, Michaela Watts, Grace De Pellegrin, Katie Marshall, Kasey Crockford, Madison Burton, Tea Edwards, Mia Forder, Corey Bartle, Alyssa Sadgrove, Maria Carter, Matthew Mower and Charlotte White. The students were outstanding representatives for the School and took the challenges to heart. They were accompanied by Mr John Simmons and Mr Scott Kendall, with Mr Steven Davies joining them for the first part of the evening.
In addition to gaining a new insight and empathy for those living rough, students from all schools raised funds to support Anglicare's Street Connect Bus. St Mark's was able to add $2,591 to the tally, which brought the overall total to more than $85,000!
By Scott Robertson, Production Director
Congratulations to everyone involved on a great run of four sold out shows (plus a matinee) for the Secondary School production of Beauty & The Beast. Each show was an improvement on the last, garnering standing ovations at every performance. Over 970 people attended our 2.5 hour Broadway spectacular, performed by students from Year 6 – 12, to rave reviews. Thank you to all members of the St Mark's community who attended and/or provided support to the cast and crew. We really appreciate the support, and hope your family were entertained.
Special Director thanks go to the following staff members who assisted in bringing this musical to life. It was a huge task and it would have been impossible without all the contributors coming together as a team of champions.
Pamela Grubb (Musical Director) and Leah Guelfi (Voice Coach): these two stars were completely responsible for the great sound of every single musical item, and had their hands full with the orchestra and cast. We would not have had a musical without them! The orchestra comprised Meg Vincensoni, Lucy Hartnell, Jenny Rowland, David Goldfinch, Bill McAlister, Joanne Papafilis, Joshua Emslie-McCarthy, Cohen Lovell, Gabriella Ibrahim, Mikayla Ramsay, Leah Jones, Karam Thethy and Emily Jones.
Sean Hartley (Technical Manager & Lighting Design) did so much for the show but, most amazingly, sound mixed 15 mics every night, live. They don’t do that at schools! Sean was assisted by the student tech crew, comprising Mark Swan, Brent Rush, Natasha Mijat, Ella Upfold and Banjo Stapledon.
Carissa Tucker (Choreography): I loved the dances in this show (especially the tap!) and they’re all due to the magic of Carissa. She was also a wolf and cameo dancer.
Nathalie Vidot and Sarah Davies (Assistant Directors) kept me sane, made me laugh AND added magical movement to many scenes and moments. They always pitched in wherever we needed help, and they make great coffee.
Margaret Prouse (Costume Design): Just imagine being given the brief that I wanted a black, white and red colour palette and we were going for non-traditional costumes for the mechanicals. Margaret was ably assisted by parent Jacky Nel, along with Year 8 student Nadia Nel.
Kristy Raymond and Suzie Croke (Backstage Managers): Brilliant work backstage with costume fittings and herding our 62 member cast, plus helping out wherever and whenever needed.
David Bailey (Backstage Crew Coordinator): David was given a stage crew of Middle Schoolers (mostly Year 6 ) and with grace, patience, and deft wrangling, made them great. The crew included Jayden Willcocks, Siobhan Symonds, Jett Morrow, Alex Fazio, Tom Kennedy, Harrison Gazeley, Henry Thompson and Ryan Hawker.
Eloise Thomas (Makeup) led the Production Angels, guiding them through some challenging makeup briefs. Old Scholar Naomi Andrews (Class of 2017) was on hand to help out. The Production Angels include Naomi Andrews, Tallulah Allen, Molly Bean, Josie Bishop, Ashe Hammill, Ella Jackson-Pierce, Ruby Jansz, Leeselle Jones, Claire Scafidas, Talia Taylor, Maya Sharp, Megan Whitwam, Amy Schutze and Nina Whitwam.
Keith Love and Matt Angwin (Set Construction) – what a set! They constructed a clever, safe and secure set that was able to used in many different ways.
Julian Spada constructed Maurice's Machine - a fantastic piece of kit that really added to the show.
The productions Scenic Artists were Sam Knox and Old Scholar India Conway (Class of 2018).
Shirley McKibbin (Front of Stage Coordinator) organised the Front of House Team with military precision, ably aided by Sharon McCarthy, Natasha Robertson, Nathalie Vidot, Sarah Davies and Kellie Bailey. Year 12 students Chloe Marlow and Chelsea Longman were on hand as our very capable ushers.
Kate Howard (FOH Photographer & Program Design) and her Year 10 Photo Digital Design students did a spiffing job doing cast portraits and Year 10s Lucy Dawson and Matilda Starr designing the program. Formal photography was done by Old Scholar Leon Martin (Class of 2018)
Tammy Buchanan and the Home Ec Staff and students (Catering for Matinee): The Seniors raved about their feast and it really set the tone for our very first outing.
Parents were also involved in providing food for the hungry cast and crew during rehearsals, and we thank Alison Stuart, Hasnah Mattar, Vladimir Baranovschi, Judy Brook, Lisa Cooper, Jen Van Selm, Lawrie Kenny, Zoe Bradfield, Heather Watson, Debra Tasker, Anita Cunningham, Michele Upfold and Cass Cheeseman for keeping the 'hangries' at bay.
And of course, we have to thank our outstanding cast members: William Bradfield, Roxy Baranovschi, Mia Cheeseman, Bella Cooper, Stephanie Cunningham, Riley Daniel, Summer Elkin, Georgia Plant, Asha Pressley, Ruby Spath, Jackson Tasker, Natalie van Selm, Ashlyn Cole, Lily Doble, James Groocock, Philippa Kapp, Cushla Kennedy, Ella Jaggard, Priya McLeod, Angus Milne, Louise van Selm, Estella Brown, Annabel Cunningham, Aleasha Garner, Rebecca Harvie, Emily Hart, Zuleika Hazli-Aluwi, Ruby Starr, Daisy Wang, Ashton Bain, William Brook, Nicole Brown, Shae Clayfield, Martha Hues, Monique Lanham, Alexander Nichols, Isabella Nichols, Chloe McMillan, Elyssa Ward, Renee Wood-Gush, Josie Zhang, Asha Davey, Crestin Eva, Natasha Nichols, Sophia Manners, Poppy Marinovich, Daisy Taylor, Sarah Watson, Nina Whitwam, Chloe Upfold, Tayla Burton, Nick Davison, Lauren Hill, Patrick Kenny, Lauren Marsh, Madison McKinley, Hannah Moore, Charlie Stewart-Beard, Will Stuart, Luke Ackermans, Georgina Preston, Chloe Rowntree and Tiahna Ward.
In honour of their friend and classmate, Year 11 students will be going ahead with the planned fundraiser this week. Many of the group knew Kristian from early childhood and are keen to show their love and respect for him, and for his family, in a tangible way.
In support of the Hoogenkamp family, all Middle and Senior School students are invited to get involved in a variety of activities, including:
- Wearing their sports uniform and one accessory (beanie, hat, scarf or socks) that represents their favourite sporting team, for a gold coin donation (to be handed in at PCG time)
- Bake Sale at recess ($1 for two items)
- Sausage Sizzle at lunch time ($3 for a sausage and $2 for a can of softdrink)
In addition, one of our staff members has kindly donated a signed West Coast Eagles jersey (with certificate of authenticity) which will be raffled at $2 a ticket or 3 for $5. The winner will be drawn at 1.15pm tomorrow.
A Note for Families
The School continues to offer support to our students and staff during this difficult time. The email sent out from the Principal, Steven Davies, on Monday 26 August contains some approaches that may be of assistance to families. Mental health and wellbeing information, contacts, and further links are available on the Parent Resources page of our website.
A group of Year 4, 5 and 6 students who performed well in their respective Interhouse Cross Country Carnivals in Term 2 head off to McGillivray Oval to represent St Mark's at the Primary Champion Schools Cross Country Carnival.
The teams were as follows:
YEAR 4 GIRLS: Ashlyn Stanford, Aysha Corley, Tahlia Kuenen, Matilda Wallace and Olivia Murphy
YEAR 4 BOYS: Leo Harvey, Jeffrey Jupp, Aaron Bitters, Fletcher McLean and Lucas Sutton
YEAR 5 GIRLS: Grace Frazer, Elissia Atkinson, Tess Kollman, Makenzie Davis and Mackenzie Hall

YEAR 6 GIRLS: Tahlia Davey, Jasmine Gray, Elyn Bawden, Asha Scadden and Asha Pressley
YEAR 6 BOYS: Beau Lees, Jack Bennie, Lachlan Thomas, Riley Dickson and Harry Preston
The students did very well indeed, competing against students from 70 schools from around Western Australia. Our Girls Teams finished 10th overall, and our Boys Teams finished 8th. Together, the St Mark's team came in 7th place - a really great result. Congratulations to all of you!
Parent Volunteer Opportunities
The Sew Sustainable Club is about teaching students sewing skills and educating them about upcycling materials. We are using old uniforms as fabric to create products like bags and pin cushions. The aim is to reuse and minimise waste. We are currently seeking donations of old house shirts and glue guns. These can be provided to Julie Abbott at the Junior Reception.
We are also looking for more parent helpers to join us. This term we are meeting Tuesday lunchtime 12.30pm to 1.30pm with a group of Year 4/5 students. We would like to offer more meetings next term, but this will depend on availability of helpers. If you are able to assist, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Early Learning Centre
ELC uniform reminder: during Terms 2 and 3 ELC students are required to wear track pants with sport shorts underneath, track top with polo shirt underneath, School sport socks, sport shoes which are mostly white in colour and a School hat. On warmer days, children will be permitted to remove their track pants and tops whilst at school. Please ensure that all items are clearly named in case they get lost. Please note that uniform regulations also require that only school coloured hair accessories be worn, and no jewellery (apart from small plain sleepers or studs or a watch), no tattoos or nail polish are permitted.
ELC GARDEN WATERING ROSTER
Thank you to those parents who have already put their names down to help out in this regard. Your assistance is very much appreciated. There are still several days available on the roster for this term – mainly Mondays and some Fridays. See roster on portal. Parents are welcome to water before school (anytime from 8am) OR after school (anytime until 4pm). One parent commitment hour may be claimed for any day you are on roster (watering only takes about 45 minutes, less if it has been raining). It would be wonderful if we could get the roster filled.

NOTE FOR YOUR DIARY
- PP-Y5: Friday 13 September is Primary Interhouse Athletics Carnival Day. All Pre-Primary to Year 5 students will be participating.
Middle & Senior School
The Secondary Interhouse Athletics Carnival is coming up this Friday. It is a big undertaking to get all students prepared for travel to the State Athletics Stadium, and we need your help to ensure everything goes smoothly.
Attendance at the Interhouse Athletics Carnival is compulsory for all secondary students and they are expected to be present for the whole day. All students are able to contribute in a positive way to their House team’s effort, whether that be as a competitor who has been nominated for an event or events, as an official with duties on the day, or as a spectator and supporter of those who are competing. Students are required to travel with their House groups on the buses to the Stadium, and to return on the buses to School. Students will be dismissed at the usual time.
All students are to go straight to their normal House meeting venue when the bell rings at 8.30am. They will need to have their sports bag with them. The roll will be marked, and students will be assigned a competitor number. Under the guidance of their PCG teachers and Head of House, students will board the buses.
- CARNLEY: Bottom floor of the Senior Academic Centre
- CHALLEN: Hall
- MOYES: Floreat
- WATKINS: Pavilion
Students are responsible for bringing all personal medications and to ensure that they keep it with them on the day. This could include asthma inhalers, epipens, antihistamines, and insulin. If required, please collect any medications from the Wellness Centre prior to leaving school, or contact the School Nurse.
A crew from St John's Ambulance will also be present.
Students are required to wear their House uniform with appropriate sports shoes, and as the weather is expected to be chilly, we advise them to wear their School tracksuit. School hat, rain jacket and sunscreen should also be brought along in their sports bag - we also recommend bringing their sports uniform to change into if it does rain. Only Year 12s are allowed to dress up, although they are expected to wear their House uniform when competing.
Students should bring their own water, lunch and snacks, or money to purchase food from the Stadium Kiosk or Boost Juice van.
Parents and friends are welcome to attend! The program is available to download here.
On Friday 16 August, St Mark’s was taken back to medieval times as our Year 8 students participated in the annual Medieval Day. This year, the day had a great cross curricular feel, being opened with some medieval song and dance performed by the Secondary Choir and our Year 10 Dance class. Our Year 10 Dancers then helped our Year 8s learn a number of dances. Congratulations to Moyes House for winning the Medieval Dance competition!
By far, the highlight of the day was our Medieval Marketplace. As part of their assessment for Humanities and Social Sciences, students were required to construct and run a historically accurate stall. The students rose to the challenge by creating bakeries, medicinal apothecaries, ale houses, as well as jousting and activity stalls. The Year 10 Music students provided some live entertainment in the Market, adding to the festive atmosphere.
Thank you also to the Photo and Digital Design students for taking photos on the day.
Valedictory Celebrations: RSVP Deadline extended
We have extended the RSVP deadline for the Year 12 Valedictory celebrations to Friday 30 August. Please reserve your place through the attached link. You are not required to book a place for your Year 12 child, only for the guests (including siblings) who will be attending to celebrate with the Year 12s. Please book your places here.
Mock Exam Schedules
The 2019 Mock Exam Timetable was given to Year 12s yesterday. You can also download the schedule here.
The Year 12 mock WACE exams start on Monday 7 October. Exams run from Monday 7 October (first day of the second week of holidays) to Friday 18 October. All Year 12 students return to school on Monday 21 October. All mock exams will be held in the Senior Academic Centre unless otherwise stated. Students must observe all conditions of WACE ATAR examinations; they should bring their Smart Riders or exam timetable as proof of identity to each exam.
Students will have their WACE practical exams during the first week of the October holidays. Students will receive details of these exams from the School Curriculum and Standards Authority.
Students attend school from Monday 21 October to Wednesday 23 October when they will receive their marked exams. Year 12s will participate in the Colour Run on the morning of Thursday 24 October, on which afternoon Valedictory celebrations will take place. Students do not need to attend school after Thursday 24 October. WACE ATAR examinations commence on Monday 29 October. Students may use the School library for preparation prior to their ATAR examinations. They will, however, need to attend in correct uniform (sport uniform is acceptable), and should sign in and out at Senior School Reception.
Year 12 students will not receive a report, but will receive a statement of results. The proposed issue date of the statement of results is Friday 18 October. It is important that students check that the statement is correct before results are submitted to SCSA.
Receiving the Mock Exam Schedule yesterday may have made it quite real for some students. Our staff are working to reassure them that they can get through, and that now is the time to plan for success, rather than panic. If you have any concerns about your child, their PCG tutors will be your first port of call.
Through St Mark's SchoolTV, there are a number of articles and resources designed to support both students and parents through the exam period. Features to take a look at include:
On 20 August, a group of six Year 10 students, Bryoni Milne, Chloe McMillan, Mitchell Crocker, Josie Zhang, Alexander Nichols and Emily Dingle, attended a City of Joondalup Youth Forum and a Council Meeting.
The day started with an interactive presentation on ‘Place Making’ by Town Team Movement, an organisation that strives to improve public spaces in the area of Joondalup, and how young people can become involved in the community through ‘place making’ projects.
In school groups, students were invited to reflect on areas in the City of Joondalup and how these places could be improved or activated. For example, we considered adding indigenous-inspired coloured lights to the trees that lined the walkway, adding benches and inviting artists from the Art Gallery to create some art pieces along the path to invite people to the restaurants and businesses in the area. During the process we were introduced to James Gilbert, an Old Scholar from the Class of 2009 who has worked at the City of Joondalup Youth Services for over six years.
After lunch, we attended a formal meeting of the City of Joondalup's Council, and heard about various issues within the community. Students from each school asked questions that concerned their personal beliefs and issues. Alexander and Emily asked about the Leafy City activation within the northern suburbs and how they decided whether if there should be native or non-native species in residential areas.
The next hour and a half consisted of public statements towards the Council on a range of matters, including future land developments, use of school facilities and financial governance. There was significant debate and discussion on the use of the facilities at Sacred Heart College outside of school hours. This topic garnered media attention, as it is very topical, and could have future repercussions for other schools within the City of Joondalup.
This concluded our day, with all students improving their understanding of the workings of our local Council.
The 2019 Old Scholars' Career Day will be held on Wednesday 23 October, from 12pm to 3.30pm. In past years, the events have been held on a Saturday, but with the support of the School, we will be hosting it during school hours this year to allow all Year 10 and 11 students to participate.
Ideally, the Old Scholars' Association would like to have a panel of at least 40 guests, with the event held over two sessions (with a lunch break in between). At each session, there will be approximately 180 students. Small groups of students will make 'appointments' with the guests, and learn more about the career or industry through an informal chat. It is intended to be relaxed event, with our guests sharing their stories of how they came to do what they do. No big presentations required!
It is important that we showcase a broad range of career options to students, including those that arise from a university pathway, TAFE pathway, apprenticeship, workplace learning and more!
If you are available to assist, please email email@example.com. Parents can claim their time as parent commitment hours, and will also be supplied with a delicious lunch!
As an example, we envision a panel that could include:
- Aged Care/Community
- Arts & Media
- Australian Defence Force (Army, Navy and Air Force)
- Business Analyst
- Clinical Psychologist
- Digital Forensics & IT Security
- Event Manager
- Executive Assistant
- Finance & Mortgage Broker
- Forensic Chemist
- IT (TAFE or Uni pathway)
- IT Management
- Oral Health Therapist
- Personal Trainer
- Police Officer
- Real Estate
- Rehab/exercise science
- Social Worker
- Sports & Recreation
- Town Planning
In our Community
Junior School Art Teacher, Jeanette Rengel, is looking for the little soy-filled plastic fishes that are often included with sushi packs.
Mrs Rengel is looking for a few hundred of these for a major project reflecting on waste and sustainable fishing as part of the preparations for the 2010 Joondalup Lantern Festival, which is themed around the Ocean. Mrs Rengel's plan is to fit bud lights into them and hang them from fishing poles.
If you are a keen sushi fan, please keep the fishes for her. Just rinse them out and pop them into a bag, and send them to Junior School Art room once you have a few to donate. Please keep the lids as well. This will be an ongoing project for the next six months, so please remember to keep the little fishes aside.
