From the Principal

Foreword

Dear Parents and Guardians,

On Tuesday morning, Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School won the ‘Business of the Month’ award for “excellent customer service and culture, employer of choice and community contribution” at the Tweed Chamber of Commerce breakfast. Upon receiving the prestigious award, I spoke of the recent updates and developments happening at our school. Year 8 student Samuel Smith was also invited to attend the event and joined the line-up of special guest speakers presenting for the morning. Sam spoke superbly about today’s celebrations surrounding KIN Schools Day at Lindisfarne raising awareness for the Kids In Need Association Inc. He also spoke about the upcoming KIN Schools Day Charity Dinner on Friday, 16 November.

Sam has invited AFL super star Peter 'Spida' Everitt as well as celebrity power couple Mat Rogers and Chloe Maxwell to speak at this exciting fundraising event at Twin Towns – and they’ve all graciously accepted. Lindisfarne will be supporting the organisation of the KIN Schools Day Charity Dinner and we look forward to a packed house. You can book your tickets at www.trybooking.com/417860 or, if you’re unable to attend, there is also the option to leave a donation on the site. All proceed for the KIN Schools Day Charity Dinner will go to the Kids In Need Association Inc. who do a remarkable job helping children in our local community who are ill, have special needs or are disadvantaged in some way. We’d love you to join us.

On Monday, 24 September, Lindisfarne has the honour of hosting Senator Concetta Fierravanti-Wells during her visit to our region. Senator Fierravanti-Wells is the duty senator for the Tweed Coast and has, most recently, held the position of Minister for International Development and the Pacific. Year 7 students are fortunate to be able to hear from the Senator about what it means to be an Australian Senator.

Members of the community are also invited to hear from the Senator at a morning tea to be held at the Mahers Lane Campus from 10.30am to 11.30pm. During this time, Senator Fierravanti-Wells will update the community on current issues in Federal Government and current key priorities, particularly for the Tweed region. If you are interested in attending, and to assist with catering requirements, please RSVP by Friday, 21 September to Tania Wilhelm (twilhelm@lindisfarne.nsw.edu.au). We look forward to seeing you there.

Finally, I’d like to congratulate our Lindisfarne Lions Green and Lindisfarne Lions White netball teams who have made it through to the Tweed Heads Netball grand finals this Saturday. It is the reward of much hard work over the season. Thank you to the teams’ managers and coaches also: Mrs Sophie Farmer, Mrs Megan Lowns, Mrs Karen Copeland and Mrs Lelde Taylor. I look forward to attending the games and cheering on all our Lindisfarne teams. If you’d also like to attend the grand final games, the opening ceremony commences at 12.15pm with our teams in action at 12.30pm and 2.00pm. We would greatly appreciate your support for our teams.

Kind regards,

Stuart Marquardt

Reflection

Fred’s Place Community Sleepout

On Thursday,30 August, the annual Fred’s Place Community Sleepout was held in the grounds of Seagull’s Club at West Tweed.

Fund’s raised during the sleepout event go toward supporting the extraordinary work done by Fred’s Place, which is a local division of St Vincent De Paul here in the Tweed. Fred’s Place are a critical community service, who assist the homeless and marginalized people in the area with all sorts of support and advise, helping them push through the tough times and find their feet again after whatever hardship has befallen them.

One of the reasons why the community sleepout fundraiser is so important is because Fred’s Place receive no funding from either the state or federal government. This year so far, over $60,000 has been raised, and donations are still coming in.

As a part of our Service Learning program at Lindisfarne, we are continuing to explore ways we can partner with Fred’s Place to support their essential work.

This year, Lindisfarne was represented by Jaime Coetzee from Year 12, Isabella Dowd and Arabella Flynn from Year 11, and they were accompanied by Mr Marquardt and myself. We are hoping that each year, we will be able to increase the number of students and staff who participate in this event.

About 50 people from local businesses and community organisations rugged up with multiple layers of clothing, and had the choice of either sleeping in a small tent or a cardboard box. Our three students opted for tents, while Mr Marquardt and I elected to go with a cardboard box each (see photos below).

As with most night time temperatures, the coldest part was an hour or so before dawn through to just after sunrise.  By the time the sun rose, the early morning dew had just about collapsed our cardboard boxes. The sleepout forced us all to reflect on the sad reality that too many people in our local area experience similar conditions every night.

I would like to acknowledge the commitment and passion for this cause which was displayed by our student representatives; Jaime, Arabella and Isabella.  And thank you to the Lindisfarne community, which has already raised over $1,000.

Blessings,

Rev Chad Rynehart

​Message for Parents and Students

We have had another request from the family living opposite Mahers Lane Campus who owns the pony in the paddock.

They have requested that we refrain from feeding the pony as he is overweight and has also developed a foot condition called laminitis. This condition is partly due to an excessive amount of sugar. The owners will be placing a sign on the fence if you could please respect their request for the health of the pony.

Pats are fine but no food please.

Host Families Required in Term 4

Families are needed to host a group of students from China for seven weeks from October 10.

There will be two students per host family and a shared room is fine (with the same gender only).  Host families are asked to provide three meals a day and transport to school.

As the students are under the age of 18, host families will need to hold a Volunteer Working with Children Check.  This is free to apply for and is valid for three years.

Year 2 Open Classrooms

Year 2 hosted our Open Classrooms on Wednesday morning. Families in 2M and 2SR completed ‘Working with Words’ activities and played spelling games in the undercover area. Together, we explored contractions, compound words, made silly sentences, discussed the various parts of speech, investigated long vowel spelling choices and matched homophones with their pairs. Meanwhile, 2R used their iPads in the classroom to recount local history, looking closely at photographs of local landmarks taken in the past and present and noting the natural and man made changes on a Keynote presentation.

As always, it was a pleasure to have our parents, grandparents and guardians join us and share in our learning.

From the Students

My Mum and Dad and I got to do six rotations. Our favourite was the long vowel flip charts table, it was lots of fun. Evee 2M

I did some spelling games with my Mum. We played ‘Contraction Bingo’. Tilli 2M

We did word games for our Open Classroom. We wrote words with chalk and matched pears that had homophones written on them. Poppy 2M

Our Open Classroom was awesome. We did history presentations on Keynote with our parents. We focussed on six different local landmarks. Koa 2R

Mum and I made a Keynote slideshow about historical places in Tweed Heads. We included photographs and looked for changes. I also shared my other presentations with my Mum. Boyd 2R

I taught Dad how to make a history slideshow on Keynote about the changes in our local area. It was interesting and it made me feel happy because I shared my work with my Dad. Hugh 2R

I really loved writing contractions with chalk and teaching Mum how to play ‘Scattegories.’ It was fun! Oscar 2SR

It was really fun playing word games with my Mum and Dad today. I taught them new things. Max 2SR

I worked with Stephanie and her Dad, and Rithika and her Dad. We enjoyed matching compound words. It was kids verses parents! Anuradha 2SR

Year 4 to 5 Transition Session

As part of their transition process into Middle School, our Year 4 students travelled to Mahers Lane on Wednesday.

They were provided with an insight into life in Middle School while participating in a variety of planned activities led by the Year 5 teachers. Groups played Stinge Ball in Ngahriyah, participated in classroom activities and had a Q&A session with a current Year 5 class.

Students also had the opportunity to meet teachers that they will work closely, work in space they will become very familiar with next year and have all expressed their excitement for the upcoming transition sessions in Term 4.

​Ivy Thompson takes out first place for her incredible speech!

Unfortunately Ivy Thompson could not participate at the Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School Public Speaking Final last week at Mahers Lane. She did, however do an amazing job delivering her speech at the Gold Coast Eisteddfod. 

During the Gold Coast Eistedford she presented her speech in two categories and received first place in both sections. Please join me in congratulating Ivy on her incredible achievements. The Lindisfarne community are incredibly proud of your achievements.

Year 7 Report

Mobile Phone Use

This week I address the phenomenon that is a mobile phone. Those small, handy, music-at-our-fingertips, connection-with-the-world devices that are also probably the biggest point of arguments in most homes where teenagers reside. Sound familiar? Mobile phone use is so epidemic there is actually a phobia known as “Nomophobia”- an anxious feeling bought about by not being able to access your phone or seeing a low battery sign.

Some alarming statistics from Vodaphone Australia:

  • 11% of Australians check their mobile phones immediately when they wake up.
  • 12% do the same before they go to bed, this is despite recommendations for people to switch off their phones at least an hour before bed – only 25% of people are practising this advice.
  • 30% of Australians check their mobile phone in the middle of the night, of that, 70% respond, but this doesn’t include checking the time. This is most common among 18 to 24-year-old’s who are checking instant message and social media notifications.
  • 4% of Australians read work emails in the middle of the night and about half respond.

What does this mean for us here at Lindisfarne?

Increasingly we are seeing students using phones to communicate with parents during school. Feed results and marks back home, text if they are feeling unwell or in a stressful situation or simply to “chat”. On top of this the presence of phones at school means that not only is social media readily available at students fingertips but it sits there as a constant detraction from all the productivity that could be achieved when asked to work independently.

Phones are not to be used by students at school. Whilst we all appreciate that students have phones and that they come in handy for communicating a change in pick up or a missed bus they must remain in a child’s locker or at student admin throughout the day.

Our school policy states:

Mobile telephones should not be brought to school. However, if deemed necessary to do so, mobile phones should be left at Student Administration or in lockers for safe keeping. Mobiles are not to be used in any other areas except Student Admin. The School accepts no liability
for lost, stolen or damaged mobile phones.

Teachers are vigilant with phones both in the classroom and in the playground but the size of the device makes them easily accessible. Honesty and integrity about what you are doing when others are not watching will be a key component in responsible phone use. We encourage you to have the conversation with your child about responsible phone use and following school policies.

The Great Lindisfarne Rainforest Regeneration Project

Get out your diaries and SAVE THE DATE! Saturday, 22 September will be the inaugural working bee of the GLRRP. Bring sturdy boots, work clothes, a spade, water bottle, hat, an enthusiastic attitude and an optimistic outlook. We will meet at the Trades Skills Centre before hiking over to the work site. Please let me know if you are intending to come along by dropping an email to hinksetter@lindisfarne.nsw.edu.au.

The current rainforest of northern NSW and southeastern Queensland is only about 4% of what must have been a magnificent natural wonder when Europeans first arrived. There are accounts of the first explorers rowing up the Richmond river in darkness, not because it was night, but because the forest had closed its canopy completely over the river. It is hard to imagine nowadays. Revegetating and caring for remnant patches of rainforest is a small but tangible thing we can do to enhance the place where we live and work, leaving it in a better condition than when we came to it.

Last week’s quiz question concerned the connection between the Elaeocarpus and the Casuaris. Elaeocarpus is the familiar Blue Fig or Qwondong tree and Casuaris is the utterly unique Cassowary. The connection is that the Cassowary eats the blue fruit of the fig tree and the male Cassowary’s neck is the same colour. It appears as though the female cassowary is attracted to males whose necks most resemble the colour of the Blue Fig fruit. This is just one of literally thousands of interconnections between plants and animals in the rainforest.

Regenerating the Lindisfarne rainforest won’t bring the cassowaries back (our local cassowary died out not long after European settlement) but it will bring a sense of genuine accomplishment to all who participate. So, save the date and come along for a convivial morning of hard rewarding work with like minded members of our community.

This week’s quiz question: The Australian rainforest is very ancient. Can you figure out where it came from by unscrambling the letters in Wongadan? Send your answers into hinksetter@lindisfarne.nsw.edu.au and work hard in Science this week.

Year 10 Geography Excursion

This week, Mrs Rowe and Mr. Coverdale’s Year 10 Geography students participated in a field excursion to Jabiru Island to study the estuarine ecosystem centred on mangroves. Students participated in activities such as mangrove and crab species identification, conducting a transect and quadrat and measuring features of the mangrove microclimate.

Based on their classroom and fieldwork studies, students are currently preparing an assessment response regarding strategies to support the future environmental sustainability of mangrove ecosystems. Our thanks are extended to the Lindisfarne and Second Nature Education staff who facilitated this experience for our students.

Congratulations to our Stage 2 students on a fantastic production of Roald Dahl’s Three Little Pigs.

A school musical is a wonderful vehicle to bring together talented students, passionate staff and dedicated parents to present an artistically rich performance full of joy to our community.

NCIS AFL 9s

Last Wednesday, 5 September Lindisfarne entered 3 teams into the NCIS AFL 9s championships at Grafton. 

The divisions for the day were Primary Boys, Under 15 Boys and Open Boys. Whilst the weather that greeted us was less than ideal, the boys showed a high level of skill. AFL 9s is the AFL’s answer to touch football. The game is played on field similar in dimension to a soccer field. It is split into 3 zones and the ball must travel through each zone without touching the ground.

Lindisfarne produced a high paced game in each division and this resulted in all teams making their respective Grand Finals. The Primary and Under 15 boys finished agonisingly close to winning with only points in both games being the difference.

The Senior Boys, however, enjoyed a great path through to the grand final winning all their games, then claiming the grand final by one goal.

It was a fantastic day and it looks to be getting bigger next year with the introduction of a female division.

Coordinator of PDHPE
