The Lindisfarne Way

Over the last three years staff, students and members of the wider community have worked together to develop The Lindisfarne Way. The Lindisfarne Way is a manifesto of key aspects of the school that we value as of fundamental importance. The opening section highlights the School’s Purpose, Values and Culture and I have included this below.

The Lindisfarne Way

Our Purpose

Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School is a high quality, independent, Anglican, co-educational grammar school that serves the southern Gold Coast, Tweed Coast and northern New South Wales. We seek to provide the distinctive identity, relationships, learning and leadership that support our staff and families to work together to meet our high expectations for the achievement and holistic development of our students in our local, national and international communities.

Our Values

Within our Anglican tradition, we value:

  • Compassion: Building genuine relationships through generosity of spirit and care for others.

  • Wisdom: Gaining the knowledge, understanding, skills and character that comes from learning.

  • Respect: Appreciating all within our environment and leaving an honourable legacy for those who follow.

Our Culture

We cultivate learning through relationships, expert teaching, educational research and innovation that focus on:

  • Leadership: Creating the competencies that equip us with hope, clarity and direction.

  • Standards: Establishing high expectations that empower student involvement, development, achievement, service and voice.

  • Collaboration: Working together within aligned structures, processes, practices and systems that enable our desired ethos and strategy.

You hear a lot around Lindisfarne about the School’s core values of Compassion, Wisdom and Respect and we are fortunate to be part of a community where these values are more than just words that appear on a glossy brochure. I want to focus briefly on the school culture that we are working hard to continue to strengthen. Over the last few months I have conducted many enrolment interviews and school culture is the most cited reason raised by prospective parents when I ask them why they have chosen Lindisfarne. Some common responses are that “we have heard great things about the school from friends” or “we want our child to be challenged and given opportunities to flourish.” 

We are proud of the high expectations we have for our students. As part of The Lindisfarne Way we have developed a Graduate Profile that describes the character traits that we want our graduates from each of our sub-school to exhibit. This document includes traits such as kindness, generosity, acceptance, resilience, creative thinking and many others. Rather than just being ambitious words on a page, our staff have been looking into ways to explicitly teach these traits through curricular and co-curricular activities. Developing these values is too important to be left to chance.

Year 12 - Leap of Faith

By the time this newsletter is released, our Year 12 students will be at their formal. Theformal is one of a number of significant events during their last week of regular schooling.

Next Monday night, there will be a service of thanksgiving in our chapel, followed by their final assembly next Wednesday, which concludes with the tradition of all students and staff forming a guard of honour for Year 12 as they walk up the famous stairs and say goodbye to the daily rhythm of attending Lindisfarne.

Each event forms part of a significant tradition and rite of passage, where the students celebrate an ending and a new beginning. They are released from this community, and will venture out into the world where they will find their place in other communities, and other forums.

Under the Faith Formation framework, the Year 12 pastoral program is called “Leap of Faith” and I still find myself reminding people that it is not a religious ritual or program. If we understand “faith” (in its most basic, non-organised religion form) as occupying the place in our lives between “now” and “not yet”, then by definition, we all have faith because we all live in that tension between what is now, and what is not yet.

The Leap of Faith program, then, is a very practical and flexible scope and sequence of themes and activities, where we try to address the issues and questions which students might have as they work toward whatever is not yet for them.

Any leap of faith can be daunting and frightening because you don’t know what is going to happen or how things are going to turn out. One of the spiritual and emotional components of the program is to guide students through some exercises aimed at overcoming doubt, because if you don’t have faith, all you are left with is doubt and unknowing, and they are not positive or productive mindsets.

I will address the students at their service of thanksgiving next Monday night, but also wanted to take this final opportunity in this forum to wish them all health, success and abundant wellbeing as they take their leap of faith into the unknown, and know that while you stop attending the school, we will always be here for you, and hopefully our influence will always be a part of you.

God bless you as you take the leap.
Rev Chad

​Mudgeeraba Rural Fire Brigade Donation

The Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School community delivered a donation of sweets and chocolates to the volunteers at the Mudgeeraba Rural Fire Brigade.  The donation was delivered by Martin Dixon, former parent of Lindisfarne and a Retained Firefighter (Engine Keeper) of Tweed Heads Fire and Rescue 468.

Over 200 people have been displaced by the blaze however there had been no loss of life.
A total of 17 properties have been destroyed in Queensland during the fire emergency, with many more incurring damage, including form smoke.  Eleven homes have been confirmed lost to the savage fires that have torn through the areas of Sarabah, Binna Burra, Witheren, Numinbah Valley and Springbrook.
The fires have burnt out more than 5500 hectares of land. Firefighters are still battling about 50 fires across the state.

It takes months for communities to recovery from the devastating impacts of the bushfires.  “We sincerely appreciate the help from community,” Brad 2nd Officer in Charge at Mudgeeraba Rural Fire Brigade.

​Year 12 Exam Stress

Seeing your child undergoing stress for the first time can be extremely overwhelming for a parent.  

What can parents do to help?  

  1. Taking a holistic approach and concentrating on basic needs e.g. diet, sleep, social connection, exercise, mental health and physical health.

  2. Regularly checking in with your young person, e.g. “How is the study going?” 

  3. Creating special time with the young person to do something with them that they enjoy.

  4. Letting them know you are there for them, e.g. “What can I do to help?”  This may look like topping up their water bottle and a reassuring touch or smile.

  5. Reminding them of the bigger picture and their goals, e.g. “Imagine how exciting it will be to drive yourself to University/Job!”

For extra support, please see the link below and other topics on School TV including Surviving Year 12, Anxiety, and Internet Addiction. Additionally, the School Psychologist Cassandra Gist is available for psychological therapy.

Junior School News

This week at assembly I spoke with our students about their school pride. This is something that develops over time and impacts positively on the experience they have at school. We had just watched a wonderful performance from our Stage 2 dance group and while our girls enthralled the audience, I observed both the routine as well as the faces of those watching.

I could see smiles, acknowledgment, admiration and awe in the young faces captivated by the performance. There were also many parents, so proud of their children sitting next to other parents showing pride in other people’s children. All students of Lindisfarne.

Each week at assembly we acknowledge musical efforts, academic feats, sporting and cultural talents. From skipping to dance, netball and surf lifesaving, our students shine across a huge range of endeavours.  

Highlighting these achievements, and showcasing where possible, not just shows students what they can aspire to emulate but also brings on another feeling amongst the students. School pride. Pride of the achievements of others, pride that students and their school are doing so well and pride in the opportunities offered by the school.

School pride helps children to identify with their group. The Lindisfarne tribe. It can be fostered further with support from home – something that benefits students and the school.  We are blessed to have a very supportive parent body and this week through; assembly, the Netball Presentation Evening, the Twilight Concert and the ‘Jump Off’ for Jump Rope For Heart, students and parents have shown their commitment to their passions and endeavours as well as our school. With our incredible students at Sunshine Avenue – we have a lot to be proud of.

Online Progressive Reports - Wabisabi

Online Progressive Reports. Changes in the Junior School.

Following a feedback cycle around our Online Progressive Reports the Junior School have implemented a few changes to enhance this system. This is in order to get the maximum benefit out of communicating about assessment, progression and the school’s day to day activity.

Students are uploading their own work to Wabisabi. This means that when a task is completed in class, students will capture their work using their iPad and upload it to Wabisabi. Parents and carers will notice that they may not contain teacher feedback instantly on this work. The teachers will update the post once they have viewed it and decided on the feedback for the student. This feedback should be present within a week. In the meantime, discuss the task with your students and talk about how they went. This can offer a really rich learning experience outside of the classroom. 

Also, teachers have moved onto a different cycle of posting. 50% of the posts on Wabisabi will be student achievement and progress. 25% of uploads will be whole class posts and another 25% will be images or information about other things happening at school. At the Junior School we want to ensure that parents and carers are being informed about progress and not just cocurricular activities happening at school. 

Finally, can I please ask that all parents update their Wabisabi app. A new release has been pushed out and it is important that all apps are up to date. In addition to this, the web application is now mobile responsive, meaning that it will fit into your mobile phones web browser and will provide the same, if not a better user experience. We also encourage parents to write comments on their students work. As students spend time reflecting on teacher feedback we also want them to see you have viewed this and made a comment.

If you have any questions or would like to chat more about this, please do not hesitate in contacting me.

What does a 100kg parrot say?
“Polly wants a cracker……..RIGHT NOW!”

OK, it’s a really old joke and pretty corny but you have to admit it’s a little bit funny.

There is no evidence to suggest that such an intimidating parrot ever existed but one in New Zealand came close.
Researchers have discovered the fossil of a one metre tall, 10kg flightless parrot that lived 19 million years ago in Otago. To date, it is the largest fossil of a true parrot ever found.

New Zealand is famous for its parrots and if you have ever been hiking in the backcountry of that beautiful land you may have had your backpack raided by a Kia, the mountain parrot and contender for the crown of the world’s most intelligent bird. The Kia’s impressive brain is matched with an enormous beak which it has been known to use to let down the tyres of cars whose occupants fail to produce a treat!


Why all of this talk about parrots you ask? Well, it is time we shared a little bit of good news for a change. While it is true that the natural world is under enormous stress, there are people out there actually making a difference.

One of New Zealand’s iconic birds is another giant flightless parrot, the Kakapo. This gorgeous, comical bird used to be common but, as always, the arrival of humans brought rats, cats and, most damaging of all, stoats all of which combined to nearly wipe the Kakapo out. In fact, they were thought to be extinct until a small population was discovered on Stewart Island in the late 1970’s. Since then, the birds have been relocated to predator-free islands and the eggs have been hatched under controlled conditions in incubators. This year a new record was set with ninety healthy chicks being born. Ironically, the increase in the number of eggs laid may be due to climate change. The warmer than usual seasons have resulted in the Rimu trees producing more seed, more often and this is the Kakapo’s favourite food.

The kakapo recovery program has been driven by a small group of determined people who have refused to give up on this adorable bird. Individuals CAN make a difference. It is easy to start feeling overwhelmed and helpless in the face of global challenges but if you keep your focus local and try to address just one problem in the place where you live, you can start to see the results of your actions. You will discover like-minded individuals all around you and the changes brought about by your combined effort will be greater than the sum of what you could achieve individually.

Take a moment to make yourself feel more optimistic and visit the Bush Heritage Australia site at https://www.bushheritage.org.au/ where you will discover a whole community of people dedicated to repairing the damage humans have visited upon nature. This not for profit organisation purchases degraded farmland and turns it back into its original state with cat proof fencing to eliminate that most catastrophic of all introduced predators. This year they passed the 11 million hectare mark in land acquisition and continue to expand their  portfolio of permanently protected real estate.
The seven billion humans living on the planet are causing immense damage but luckily there are fourteen billion hands to help fix it.

Have a wonderful week in Science and make one positive change in your daily routine that will benefit the planet.

​DramaWorks 2019 – Congratulations!

Last Tuesday saw Year 10 and 11 Drama students travel to the Byron Bay Community Theatre for DramaWorks 2019DramaWorks is produced by the North Coast Drama Collegiate and presents the work of some of the North Coast’s most accomplished 2019 Higher School Certificate Drama students.  It was a fabulous performance, highlighting the incredible quality of dramatic work that students on the North Coast are delivering.  

Among those performing this year were Year 12 Drama students from Lindisfarne.  Murran Kain, Ashleigh Budge, Sol Faint and Karli Worrad were invited to perform their comical rhythmic piece about four strangers who meet on a train, Chooga-Chooga Train

These students are to be congratulated on their tireless efforts in the play building and rehearsal process, their team work, their dedication to the task and for consistently working at a demanding and rigorous level of excellence.  They represented Lindisfarne proudly and gave exceptional performances. 

As well as extending performers to yet another level and exposing Lindisfarne Drama students to a wider audience, opportunities such as these also creatively inspire younger audience members and further encourage them to create at the highest level and to never give up pursuing eminence.

During Term 3, Year 7 students have been completing a unit on Nutrition. Students have learnt about the role of carbohydrates, fat, protein, vitamins and minerals. The culmination of this unit has been the preparation of a healthy snack which the students bought into school to be tasted by the rest of the class. 7A completed the task last Friday and it was a huge success. The students brought in a wide range of healthy snacks and a great morning of tasting and comparing was had by all.

Touch Football

We had a boys and a girls team represent Lindisfarne in the Ballina Years 7/ 8 NSW All Schools Touch tournament yesterday, with a spot up for grabs in the NSW All Schools Final in Penrith for each division winner.

Our boys had a limited number of substitutes, which didn’t bother them early in the day; however, later in the day the amount of games took their toll. They had a relatively even spread of wins and losses, and definitely have potential moving forward.

Our girls played their way into the finals after navigating their way through the pool games. After a nail biting semi-final victory, which culminated in an extra time drop-off format which got down to three players. Our speedster Kiara Denny used her pace and speed to score the winning try to make the Grand Final. Unfortunately, the girls went down 2-1 to Kingscliff High School in what was a very even contest. There maybe the possibility of a Wildcard entry to the NSW All Schools for this team. 

Overall, we are very excited with the trajectory that Lindisfarne is heading with its Touch Football program.


Cricket

We sent three teams to the Woolworths Cricket Blast Cup for our Year 7 and 8 students in Murwillumbah today (Friday, 20 September). The girls had a blast in some perfect weather, small boundaries, tip and run -  soft ball format. Australia is clearly leading the world in Women’s Cricket, so it would be fantastic to see Lindisfarne have a girls team up and running soon.
