From the Principal

Foreword

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This week marks the end of an era for the Lindisfarne graduating class of 2018. In light of this momentous occasion, I’d like to share a few passages from my speech at the Year 12 Farewell Assembly on Wednesday. 


There is a saying it takes a whole village to raise a child – today our Lindisfarne village gathers to farewell the class of 2018 as their day to day attendance at the school draws to a close.

This time of year comes about too quickly. The final year of school is packed with deadlines and commitments, ever increasing responsibilities and decisions. At this time of celebration students are also faced with the reality that final exams are just three weeks away and final preparations will commence from tomorrow for the HSC exams that lie ahead.

For the class of 2018, you will spend almost your entire life living in the 21st century. With advances in medical technology there is a good chance that you live to see in the 22nd century. It is likely that many of you will work until you are 70 and live until you are one hundred years old or thereabouts.

Those of us from previous generations have left you with a lot of work to do but are confident in your ability to take our state and nation forward into the future.

The progress of last century, the innovations and inventions of that time, so readily embraced and largely enjoyed by so many of us will I expect present ever-increasing challenges for the young people of the 21st century.

Last century we developed a dependency on plastics, the aeroplane, the automobile, antibiotics, television, computers and the internet.  We were hungry for resources,  heavily reliant on fossil fuels, some countries adopted nuclear power and the greater population had little understanding of the impact this thirst for resources would start to have.  

We are feeling that impact now.

There are superbugs resistant to antibiotics, our oceans are littered by plastics, we have a whole generation of children who play online instead of outside, our roads are clogged and our cities polluted.

But it is not all doom and gloom!

Sitting before you we have the most environmentally aware and sustainably minded generation that we have ever had. A generation prepared to face the challenges and make a difference through individual and collective action.  

For the class of 2018, you will see a great deal in your lifetime and be able to lead the way in creating the world for tomorrow.

In doing so, keep some perspective. Yes, there is the pressure of exams and decisions to make about the future, but rejoice in the opportunity that you have access to a quality education and the relative prosperity that you already enjoy. UNESCO believes that over 264 million children don’t go to school. Many more live in great poverty, with poor health and sanitation, lack of access to clean water and little access to health care. 

In many respects you have already won the lottery of life.

Around the conclusion of your exams this year, the 100th anniversary of the Armistice signed to ‘end the war to end all wars’ World War 1 signed on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918 culminates the Centenary of ANZAC commemorative events with Remembrance Day 2018 being respectfully observed across the nation.

Of the 416,809 Australians who enlisted in the great war, 60,000 were killed and 156,000 wounded, gassed or taken prisoner. World War 1 took an insurmountable toll on a young nation of fewer than 5,000,000 people.

We are now a nation of over 24 million people, built on the sacrifice of past generations including those who paid the ultimate price in serving our country in times of war.

It is up to each and every one of us to make the most of the opportunity we have been given.

If we are to make the most of our future we need to understand our past as a nation.

Part of that is to recognise that our first nations people – the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of Australia have 60,000 years of history prior to European settlement. My own journey through life post graduating from Year 12 has seen me live in Boulia Qld, land of the Pitta Pitta people, Mt Isa Qld land of the Kalkadoon, Sunshine Coast land of the Gubbi Gubbi, Albany WA land of the Menang and the Tweed Coast land of the Bundjalung people.

Yet the first time I ever saw a map of Australia that showed the traditional tribal lands of our first nations people was when the former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd delivered the apology to the Stolen Generations in 2008.

Think deeply about the past and it will help inform your future. 

By now, the class of 2018 are probably starting to think, “has our Principal, Mr Marquardt finally lost the plot?”

He’s talked about all sorts of issues at the Year 12 Farewell Assembly.

The progress of the last century and the ever-increasing impact of that progress in the 21 century.

  • Already winning the lottery of life.
  • The Armistice, the centenary of ANZAC and the sacrifices of WW1.
  • The need to recognise and reconcile with our first nations peoples.

Yet there is a purpose to my address. A quality education will provoke thought, to think deeply, to ask questions to challenge the prevailing view.

It allows you to form your own views and opinions, to argue your case and to defend your position, to stand for your beliefs. It allows you to create a future that honours the past and respects the present.

For the class of 2018 your education will be your window to the world.

It allows you to enjoy the view and also to create the scenery.

For the Lindisfarne class of 2018 we have invested in you and you have invested in your school. We pay tribute to each and everyone of you.

We thank our School Captains – Holly Otto, Stuart Purcival, Lilli Dowker and Fraser Crane for their leadership.

We thank all of your teachers, staff, our Heads of House, and our Head of Senior School Mrs Lush and our School Chaplain Rev Chad Rynehart for their commitment to guiding you to be the best version of yourself.  

We thank your parents for the unconditional love and support they have given you.

As you conclude your day-to-day attendance at school, we hope that you will have a deep enduring connection to this place, return often (starting with Speech Night 2018) and remember that you never actually leave a school like Lindisfarne, you just stop attending every day.

Congratulations class of 2018 and may God bless you on the next stage of your journey.


May everyone have a safe and happy holiday. We’ll see you back in Term 4.

Grandparents' Day

We are waiting to hear from you with your baking ideas for our Grandparents' Day. Leave us a message at pandf@lindisfarne.nsw.edu.au and help out where you can.

Marian Keyes said “Baking makes me focus. On weighing the sugar. On sieving the flour. I find it calming and rewarding because, in fairness, it is sort of magic - you start off with all this disparate stuff, such as butter and eggs, and what you end up with is so totally different. And also, delicious.”

Enjoy a well-deserved break over the holiday period.

Thank You

As communicated to families yesterday, Mr Marquardt has offered me the opportunity, upon my return from long service leave, to lead the development of an exciting new initiative for the School commencing in 2019. Whilst I am very keen and enthusiastic about accepting this challenge and look forward to diverting my knowledge, skills and experience to this project, I am feeling overwhelmingly emotional about leaving my role as Head of Junior School.

Over the past week, I have been privileged to attend and participate in the many celebrations to honour the graduating Year 12 students - many of whom began their school journey at the Sunshine Avenue Campus the same time I was appointed Head of Junior School.

As I witnessed these young adults mark their final days of school, I appreciated how fortunate I have been to have played a significant part in their lives and how grateful I am for the relationships I have forged with them and their families.

As I reflect on the past 13 years, I am immensely proud of the achievements of all the children who have been part of our Junior/Primary School. I have been blessed to work with an exceptional team of teachers, teacher assistants and support staff who, through their tireless dedication and genuine care, have encouraged and assisted these young people to become successful, compassionate and resilient.

When leading tours of our Sunshine Avenue campus for prospective families, I always proudly share how this School has a strong sense of community. This is a result of the devoted parents and carers. Thank you for your ongoing support and keen interest you afford your children’s education.

I have valued every experience in my role as Head of Junior School and will cherish the memories for years to come and am proud of what we have been able to achieve over the past 13 years.

KIN Schools Day Charity Dinner - Thanks for your support!

Dear Lindisfarne Community,

I am writing to say a huge thank you for once again holding a KIN Schools Day celebration at Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School. It was an enormous success, raising over $2,000 for the Kids In Need Association, a local charity which has been changing children’s lives in our community for over 35 years. It certainly is a great example of what can be achieved when a community comes together and that a little bit, can make a lot. A huge thank you to the teachers, staff and students who participated to make it all possible. I look forward to celebrating with you again next year.

Our next exciting event coming up is this year’s KIN Schools Day Charity Dinner, Champions Unite. Planning is well underway and I am again hoping you will open your hearts and get involved. It is a night guaranteed to entertain, with something for everyone. We are delighted to announce Mat Rogers, former Rugby League and Rugby Union International representative, Peter ‘Spida’ Everitt, former AFL star and current host of 92.5 Gold FM’s morning radio show. These champions each have a story to share and a yarn to tell, some I am told would put a smile on the Mona Lisa and a tear in your eye. They have each given their time freely to this event, which I think speaks volumes about them as individuals. TV personality and former model, Chloe Maxwell has also volunteered her time and services as MC for this exciting event.

There are a variety of ways you can participate:

This year, the auction items will be available for online bidding as well as at the event which will give greater exposure to the supporting businesses. It will also allow people who are unable to attend to register and purchase the catalogued items.

I am also extremely proud to announce the major raffle prize, which has been kindly donated from local councillor and his wife, Mr and Mrs Warren Polglase. It includes a four night accommodation package at the prestigious Pinnacles Resort in Airlie Beach, Queensland.


I would also like to take the opportunity to thank Smile Street Dental as Major Sponsor for this event, I am so pleased to have the support of this wonderful local business who has shares my quest of supporting kids in need.



With open heart and fingers crossed, I thank you in advance for your support.

Preschool Newsletter Term 3 2018

Preschool kindly asked a local tree lopping service, All Tree & Stump Works located on Sullivan Street, for some tree stump donations to add more natural elements to our outdoor learning environment. And this week we were so excited to receive some beautiful silky oak stumps which were cut to a variety of sizes and used as seating, stepping stones and to create an outdoor yarning circle.

The children were super excited and used their lovely manners to thank both Brad and Kyle - a father/son team- for all their hard work cutting and delivering the stumps in order to make this a reality for us.

I am sure all children in the Early Learning Centre will benefit for many years from this valuable community connection.

SAKG Report

Last Wednesday in our SAKG lesson we were harvesting precious potatoes. I think we harvested about forty potatoes. We got into groups of two or three and one of the groups was sketching and journaling about the garden. The second group were harvesting potatoes and it was a lot of potatoes! Hunting potatoes was fun, we were digging with our hands and Mrs Roberson used a fork to loosen the soil for us. I found a “great looking” potato! Hehe!

Everyone’s drawings of the garden were phenomenal too. There is one warning with potato. The green plant part is poisonous for animals and humans!

Middle School Science

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who turned up on Saturday morning for our inaugural rainforest working bee. After being anxious that the turn up would be poor, it was moving to see just how many people care deeply enough about the environment to give up time on their Saturday morning to lend a hand.

Participants inspected the site and were introduced to the plan for rehabilitating the rainforest before getting stuck into the job of clearing rubbish and planting, watering and mulching 60 trees. There are now blue figs, bloodwoods, weeping lillipilly, Queensland kauri, and Bangalow palms where only camphor was growing before Saturday. The day was beautiful and the atmosphere festive as many hands made the work go quickly. We were all finished and eating homemade biscuits by 10.15am.

(Please see our photos in the gallery below).

We won’t hold another working bee until Term 2 or 3 next year when we hope to make real inroads into the project. In the meantime, there will be only minimal maintenance of the newly planted trees.

Enjoy your holiday and do something sciency: research one of the topics from Middle School Science, start a short film for next year’s Sleek Geeks competition based on something you have learned this year, plant a tree or, best of all, find a quiet place somewhere to sit and observe nature for a while.

Science Quiz

Last week’s quiz referred to the camphor laurel smell. This comes from a compound commonly referred to as an essential oil. These essential oils can be separated from the trees that produce them by a distillation process. The most common is Tea Tree oil which is a major industry here on the north coast but there are literally hundreds of essential oils found in Australian native species.

Your quiz question for the holiday is a mathematical brainteaser. On Sunday, 1 January, Thomas announced that he was going to have a party on every fifth Sunday of the month during the year. How many parties would there be at Thomas’ house that year?

Get your thinking caps on and give it a crack. MSS will be back in three weeks.


Year 7 Report

The journey is a quick one!

This week as my second child finishes his school journey at Lindisfarne I am compelled to address how quick the time has gone. The elegant formal has been done, the graduation service acknowledging the efforts of all has been celebrated and this morning that final walk of the stairs lined with eager faces from Year 5 right through the next years graduating Year 12’s, teachers, staff and families took place.

So why dwell on this when we at Year 7, are at the start of our journey?

This year, as I have watched and supported your children as they enter into Year 7, I have been astounded at how fast the year has gone and I am again reminded of the speed at which this journey takes place. In no time we have watched nervous Year 6 students unsure of so much quickly turn into independent young adults seeking out opportunities and making the most of all that is available to them at Lindisfarne. Something I am sure they will continue to embrace in years to come.

The journey may be lightning fast but the road isn’t always smooth so I encourage you to embrace every moment that is high school life with your child. Celebrate the pleasing exam results and assessment tasks, acknowledge the sporting achievements and extra-curricular successes but be there for the lows too. Support them when school is overwhelming or the friendships take the many twists and turns that it does. Be their role model, their pillar of support and their guiding light. Laugh at the jokes, take the silly photos and offer the hugs when needed. Above all and most importantly ENJOY every single moment.

To the graduating class of 2018, on behalf of Year 7, I say a heartfelt thanks. Thankyou for being there for us, for leading the way and for leaving some very big shoes for us to grow into.

STEM Maker Day

This term, 16 students from Years 6 to 10 participated in the STEM Maker Day which was held at Kings Christian College. There was an amazing selection of workshops on offer throughout the day. The activities ranged from robotics, drones, techno gliders and graphic design. It was inspiring to see the engagement and enthusiasm of our students participating in these activities. Our students walked away feeling excited about the creation of our very own Lindisfarne STEM day sometime in the future!

Coach’s Report – NRCC U16 Basketball

The U16 basketball teams travelled to Trinity Catholic College last week to compete in the NRCC Basketball competition. Aside from the game play, our students wore the Lindisfarne emblem with pride and were a true testament to the values we hold in high regard.

Despite a reduced roster, the girls battled extremely hard all day. They found themselves in a hard-fought match, but got off to a great start thanks to five successive baskets from Georgie Hughes. The tireless efforts of Daisy Ashton marshalling the defense and quarterbacking the offense was a sight to see. The girls managed a narrow 22-17 victory. But why stop there?

The girls proceeded to surpass their own expectations winning their next two round-robin games and making it into the final. They were absolutely beside themselves with excitement, and geared up for the final against the host Trinity College, who were also undefeated. The team of 7 was absolutely exhausted, but fought until the end. One of the stars of the day, Paloma Peisajovich went down with an unfortunate injury, and the girls came out second best. We were incredibly proud of their efforts and the good spirit in which they played. Congratulations to Tori Marchiori, Amity Day, Brooke Morris, Georgie Hughes, Daisy Ashton, Paloma Peisajovich and Keeley Hughes.

The boys went one step further. The boys breezed through the round robin, looking impressive and being asked to hold back on the scoresheet. Confident and classy, the boys showcased their skills. They outscored their opponents 122-28 and set up another final against the hosts.

In a hard fought final, the boys showed their resolve and emerged Grand Final winners by a one-point margin. They were the class act of the day and truly deserved the title. Congratulations to Romany Woods, Joshua Cargnoni, Ben Wright, Fraser Carpenter, Gus Edwards, Will Edwards, Bryan Richards, Ryan Simpkins, Flynn Curtis and Kodey Edgar Farrell. All players contributed significantly on the score sheet.

A big thank you to Nathalie Gray for all of her efforts and expert coaching on the day.

  • Lindisfarne as a school came out 5th after the day.

Mrs Allison Sands









NSW CIS Secondary Athletics

At the recent NSW CIS Secondary Athletics Championship in Sydney’s Olympic Park, there were a number of excellent performances from Lindisfarne students.   Oliver Churchill had an outstanding championship winning the 15 Boys 1500m (4:27) and finishing second in the 15 Boys 800 (2:04).  He was also unlucky not to place in the 15 Boys Discus; narrowly missing out on 3rd place.  Jye Walker showed talent and perseverance to emerge victorious in a tense 13 Boys High Jump final with a winning jump of 1.65m.  Although there was some confusion with the final placings, Jacob Sands narrowly missed out on a place in the 15 Boys Javelin (4th) with a throw of 37.56m.  

Other commendable efforts included Julian Sim-Sing in the 14 Boys 100m, Maia Shaw in the 16 Girls 200m and 400m, Kodey Edgar Farrell in the 16 Boys 100m, Kel Shaw in the long jump and triple jump and Jye Conquest in the 16 Boys 400m.  I would like to mention that all Lindisfarne students competed in good spirit and were brilliant ambassadors for the school at the championships.
