From the Principal

Dear parents, friends, staff and students

This week Year 10 students have been involved in Ministry Outreach in a range of different settings. I have been pleased to hear of the generous way in which they have engaged with the experience, sometimes in situations which are quite challenging. In our lives we can often face situations which take us outside our comfort zones and test our resilience, adaptability and good humour. It is wonderful to know that our young women are able to manage themselves in such situations. I want to congratulate our Year 10 students on their involvement in outreach and encourage them to continue to seek ways of reaching out to those in need.

I was also able to spend a few minutes this week hearing reflections from the Year 11 students who participated in Good Samaritan Outreach during the recent break. Each of the girls found the time both challenging and rewarding and, most importantly, came away with a new sense of the importance of personal contact for those who find themselves in situations of homelessness, poverty or social isolation. In particular the girls were enriched by hearing the personal stories of people and realising how fragile life can be when difficult circumstances arise. I have been spending some time visiting my father in hospital recently and I have noticed how much reliance is placed on volunteers. There are so many places which benefit from people who volunteer and it would be a wonderful thing if each of us were able to find time in our busy lives to devote some time towards helping others. Perhaps this could be a challenge for all of us – to try to find a way to reach out to those in need in our community, to spend some time with them and to listen to their stories.

Year 12 students have commenced their Trial HSC examinations. On Monday I reminded them that they are in the prayers of the community at this time, which of course can be a time of heightened anxiety. I also assured them that the normal support structures of the College are available to them and I particularly reminded them that if they need any assistance during this time they should let someone know. I am confident that the girls have had excellent preparation for these exams and I know that when they return to school their teachers will be providing feedback to assist them in improving further before the final exams commence in October.

Last weekend I visited our new student leaders at their leadership camp. I want to thank and congratulate Ms Zammit and Mrs Duncan for their generous time commitment and the preparation and planning that went into the camp. It was clear during my visit that the girls had wonderful ideas they were developing as they plan to lead our students during the coming year. I look forward with excitement to working with this group of leaders.

I was listening this morning to news of the persecution of Christians in Iraq. In other parts of the world there is persecution and suppression of people as a result of conflict. As a community we continue to pray for peace in our world. In order for there to be peace we need to have peace in our hearts and peace in our close relationships and communities.

Lord of heaven and earth
of all nations and peoples
all faiths and no faith
reveal yourself to those who are suffering,
reveal yourself to all who are refugees,
reveal yourself to those who are powerful,
reveal yourself to all who are powerless,
reveal yourself to ordinary people in their everyday lives,
that this world might reflect your love and your glory.
Bless the hands that bring wholeness
to lives blighted by sickness.
Bless the saints who in sad and desperate places
bring a sense of hopefulness.
Bless all those who face daily opposition
and show a faithful witness.
Bless the generosity of the rich and powerful
for the gift of thoughtfulness.
Bless the peacemakers working in conditions
that are often hazardous.
Bless the politicians making decisions affecting all of us.
Bless our words and actions as we carry your light
into places shrouded in darkness.
Bless your children whoever they might be
with the warmth of your love and grace.

Mission News

As we move to the middle weeks of Term 3 I am conscious of an enormous array of activities taking place. Last Saturday night Mrs Donna Dempsey and Mrs Gail Davey accompanied a group of our Year 11 students on our regular monthly contribution to Vinnies Van. This week all of our Year 10 students are taking part in the Community Outreach program with approximately 90 agencies or organisations hosting our students for placements. Year 12 had their most recent Connect gathering last Friday before they started their HSC Trial Exams. Year 8 Students are continuing with their SOJAD program with two classes still to take part in the day of activities with the staff and students at St Edmund's School. Year 9 students are continuing their work at Jamieson House, along with the St Benedict’s Club at the MSB Centre and with JCA and their homework help program, as well as the SPARKS program with St Vincent De Paul. Our Big Sister, Sisterhood and Step Up programs will kick off again in the next couple of weeks and we’ll continue with the friendship exchange between our Year 10 students and their counterparts from St Edmund's.

While all these events are currently happening we also have an eye to the future with some big plans underway. On 12 August we look forward to welcoming the senior members of our community to our annual Grandparents' Day Assembly and morning tea. Information has already gone out to students reminding them to get in touch with Grandparents, Great Aunts and Uncles, close friends of the family and to invite them to be our guests at the College from 9:30am for our special assembly followed by morning tea until around 11am. To assist with seating and catering we are asking families to rsvp through the linked invitation below, on our website or through the link sent to the students via email.


On the following day, a small group of our senior students will be attending a lecture at the Australian Human Rights Commission where Sr Clare Condon, Congregational Leader of the Sisters of the Good Samaritan and winner of the 2013 Human Rights Medal, will speak on the topic of “Sanctioned Violence. What does it do to our relationships and our community?” On Thursday 14 August another group of our students and staff will be attending the Beecroft Forum Dinner of the Major Issues and Theology Foundation, where former NSW Premier and Foreign Minister Bob Carr will speak. On Friday, 15 August a group of four Year 11 students will be going to St Scholastica's College at Glebe to assist with workshops for their Foundation Day celebrations and about 150 of our students and accompanying teachers will be travelling to Parramatta Mall for our annual day of busking in support of the St Vincent De Paul Winter Appeal. On the following day, three Year 12 students will be backing up for another day of busking for the Saturday shopping crowds. Everyone is most welcome to come along and support our students. On both days the music will be playing from about 12 noon until 2pm.

While we are very busy getting ready for all these activities, we are also currently planning for some other significant events coming up in the next couple of months. Currently, Year 11 students are in the first stages of preparation for their Retreat which comes up at the beginning of Term 4. Students have been asked to indicate their preference from among three programs, each focusing on one of the core College values, Pax, Hospitality and Stewardship. Year 8 and Year 9 students will soon receive information about their Reflection Days which take place in September.

Later this term we will hold a focus on the issue of Refugees and Asylum Seekers. This focus will take place in Week 7 from 25 - 29 August. It will once again provide us with an opportunity to consider our response to this most pressing need. We have been holding a week such as this for a decade now and sadly, each year, the problem seems to be more significant. The numbers of people seeking asylum continues to increase, the conflicts that force them to flee seem to be escalating and the policies of successive governments in Australia are becoming more harsh and inhumane. The enormity of the situation can sometimes feel overwhelming, however, we hope to provide our students with a greater understanding of the situations and some practical ways to show our concern for the needs of others.

During the next school holidays MSB will once again form a partnership with Josephite Community Aid (JCA) to host a family fun day picnic for newly arrived families. The picnic will be held on Friday 3 October. The event was a great success last year and we look forward to another great day this year. We already have a team of people who have been working on preparation of the event and we’ll soon be calling on others to help. Keep an eye out for more information in coming newsletters and please put the date in your diary. We’re hoping that lots of MSB students and their families will be able to come along and there will be plenty of ways that people can help, even if they can’t make it on the day.

Year 8 into Year 9,  2015 Elective Information Evening

Attention Year 8 Parents

The Year 9 2015 elective information evening will be held on Tuesday 5 August, Week 4 at
7 p.m. in the College Hall.

The purpose of the evening is to present a holistic picture of girls education at Mount St Benedict College, to provide information on the Board of Studies requirements for Years 9 and 10 (Stage 5) as well as the elective structure and course selection for next year.

The Year 9 2015 Elective Subject Selection Handbook will be distributed shortly and teachers will be available on the evening to discuss any questions you and your daughter may have regarding the courses being offered.  Students will be sent a password on Wed 6 August at 4 p.m.  They will be able to lodge their choices electronically, until 4 p.m on Fri 15 August.

The College will offer 14 elective courses from which your daughter will choose TWO for Years 9 and 10. These courses are 200 hour courses which must be studied over both years. Careful consideration will need to be made in the subject selection process as once the students indicate what courses they want to study and timetabling of the lines begins it is very difficult to change their preferences.

Therefore, it is important that you and your daughter attend this information evening. All students are expected to attend in school uniform and bring their elective handbook to the evening.

It is my hope that the night will help both students and parents in the decision-making process for electives in 2015.

Mr John Muskovits
Assistant Principal Dean of Curriculum

Student Leadership Camp

On Sunday 27 July, the newly elected College Captains, went away to St Joseph’s Centre in Baulkham Hills on a Leadership Camp.

Over the weekend we were able to break up into groups and develop a stronger sense of our goals and message for the following year.  We also began to determine the legacy we wish to leave with the school.

To begin with, we played a few getting to know you games. We did this by throwing three tennis balls at people and saying their name, but the same ball couldn't go to the same person twice. Through this we all learnt that many of us lack hand eye coordination. However, we then realised the way to succeed in this game was not to think 'every woman for herself' but to think collaboratively as a team, and problem solve together.

Later in the afternoon, all the captains got together to decide the five most important rules to ensure that we stay true to our vision of effective leadership and work cohesively as the leadership team. We decided that acceptance, respect, organisation, enthusiasm and teamwork were our principles that we wanted to follow throughout the year.

Using these rules to guide us, we formed into our portfolios and captain groups to start to think about the kind of events and actions we want to undertake this year. We built on previous ideas and events from years gone by, but also came up with a lot of new ideas, to generate excitement for the coming year. We practised presenting and pitching our ideas in front of a crowd, while our peers critiqued us to help improve our presentation skills.

We finished off a very eventful day with the film ‘The Sapphires’ and quite a lot of snacks.

On Monday morning, we all woke up at the unthinkable hour of 7.30am. We had our breakfast and packed up our rooms to start a new day. We went down to the meeting room, to meet our group leader Matt from the organisation ‘yLead’. Matt provided facilitated discussions on how to improve our leading style and allowed us to think practically about what 'works' and how to make the best of our time as captains. This allowed us to organise our ideas, connect closer as a group through dancing and nursery rhymes, and use different learning techniques for problem solving.

Using these new techniques and qualities, we all put our heads together and thought of two options for our new 2015 motto for our Year of Hospitality, which made the reality of being the new leaders of the school finally hit.

We ended our camp with a liturgy, which allowed us to reflect on the two days and centre our thoughts. Parents accompanied us, and we were able to conclude the weekend together.

This experience really inspired us to think big and plan strong.

Creative and Performing Arts

Term 3 is an important term for the HSC students as they put the final touches on their Major Works which are marked or submitted for marking throughout the term. Dance Practicals are in Week 4, Drama Practicals are in Week 6, Visual Arts in Week 7 and Music Practicals in Week 8.

Dance News

It’s been busy times with the preparation for HSC Dance as well as many Eisteddfod and dance ensemble meetings and rehearsals.

The MSB Sydney Eisteddfod dance team performed extremely well on 26 July at the UNSW Science Theatre.  The girls represented MSB to a very high standard and we are proud of their efforts. We look forward to MSB Sydney Eisteddfod in 2015 to see what the girls will bring back!

At the end of Term 2 the HSC Dance students saw the Bangarra Dance Theatre perform Patyegarang at the Sydney Opera House. This was a beautifully crafted piece of contemporary dance work choreographed by HSC Seminal artist Stephen Page, Artistic Director of Bangarra Dance Theatre. We listened to him speak about the work and enjoyed a Q&A session with the dancers and the choreographer himself. The girls enjoyed the afternoon and experience, viewing a world class performance at the Sydney Opera House.

Congratulations to all the Dance and Drama HSC students who performed their work at the HSC Showcase night. They have worked extremely hard over the year and it was a wonderful evening highlighting their efforts. We wish them all the best for their upcoming examinations on 5 and 6 August.

Watch this space for the newly created Dance ensembles. They have recently begun to work on a Jazz and Tap piece for performance in future assemblies. We are very excited by the enthusiasm shown from Year 7 & 8 students and look forward to seeing them on stage under the bright lights!

Drama News

The HSC Drama students are to be congratulated for their Group Performances and Monologue Performances at the Showcase Night last week. The girls have been focused on these pieces throughout the year as they prepare for their HSC Examination on 21 and 22 August.

The HSC Drama students have to devise a group performance piece of 8 to 12 minutes based on a list of given stimulus by the Board of Studies. The pieces this year were:

BACK TO BASICS: "In a world of social media, lies and deception, four professors challenge the theories of love and discover the true meaning behind finding your soul mate"

GUILTY OR NOT GUILTY: Throughout time Barbie has evolved physically, but her mind has stayed the same. What will happen when Barbie is faced with the reality of a modern world where society blames her... is she guilty?

Students have the option to select an Individual Project which could be Performance, Video Drama, Scriptwriting, Design or Critical Analysis. This year the students have all selected Monologue performance. The piece can be original or taken from a variety of literary sources and must be 6 to 8 minutes in duration. There are a range of pieces this year from the classic, to Australian Contemporary, from Comedy to Drama.

For their HSC performance they will have 30 of the Years 11 and 10 drama students as audience members.



Year 11 Drama attended the Sport for Jove production of Henrik Ibsen’s A Dolls House adapted and directed by Adam Cook on 29 July at the Seymour Centre. The girls were completely engaged and inspired by this performance. It is always valuable for our Drama students to see live theatre performances as it takes their understanding and appreciation to another level.

Breath taking, outstanding, engaging…speechless ” – Olivia Jones

It was a pleasure to have a day out to the theatre with this class.

Broken Bay Netball Championhsips

The 2014 Broken Bay Netball Championships were again a succesful day for MSB and our talented students. This competition has in the past seen international umpires officiate (Helen George local HDNA product) and many former and current ANZ players such as Catherine Cox, Brooke Miller and Nicola Gray compete with their high schools. 2014 was no exception with two current ANL players competing in the Senior division.

Our four teams were all undefeated after their pool rounds and we ended the day with three sets of medals! MSB finished as Y7 and Junior (Y7/8) champions, our Intermediate girls (Y9/10) bringing home silver medals and our Seniors ending as semi finalists - well done to all.

It was great to see ex MSB students there as umpires (Mikala Smith, Kirsten Gossip, Jessica Knight) and assistant coaches (Alex Walsh, Lily Vidler).

This year Laura Pinker (Y12) and Courtney Harkin, Cassie Chivers, Piper McEwen from Y9 represented us as umpires on the day, managing their games with great skill and maturity.

It was also great to have two teams from Bradford Grammar England contest the Senior division adding an international element again this year.

Here are the coaches reports from the day:

SENIOR TEAM (Y11/12)

Congratulations to our Senior Representative Netball Team who, despite last minute player changes, came together exceptionally well and went on to win all matches in their pool and progress to the finals. Unfortunately they were narrowly defeated in the semi-final against the team who ultimately won the Broken Bay Senior Championship. Emma Hayman, Emily Michell, Alyssa Tanner and Samantha Fitzgerald were outstanding in defence, whilst our steady mid courters, Ashleigh McKimm, Antonia Essey, Monique Frendo and Harriet Burke moved the ball beautifully through the centre court and into the circle. Caitlin Knight, Alex Wade and Rachel Montgomery showed their shooting finesse and also took many notable intercepts in general play. A special thanks to our team parents who enthusiastically supported and took care of the scoring duties and to Samantha and Harriet who stepped in to play in the team for the day.



Mrs McGregor

INTERMEDIATE TEAM (Y9/10)

These girls had a very strong history going into these championhsips having never lost a game, some across a three year period at Broken Bay level. They are all very talented netballers and just to make this team is an achievement in itself as trials are always hotly contested. Rachel Takchi, Lauren Martin and Alyson McGrath are attacking shooters who despite injury and illness combined well in the circle. Our midcourters Georgia Quick, Tammy McGregor, Bella Duncan and Charlie Folkard provided some great drives through the middle, defended centre passes well and fed the circle with great timing. Our circle defenders Kaitlyn Noble and Angela Cloeraine gained us possession multiple times throughout the day with strong turnovers and rebounds.                            

The intermediate division on the day was the strongest one that I have ever coached against and it is a credit to the girls' talent that they were undefeated in their pools games and semi finals and only narrowly defeated in the final to finish as runners up.

Thanks to all of our wonderful parents, most of whom had billeted the English students for the two prior nights, for scoring, cheering and even providing first aid when needed.

JUNIOR TEAM (Y7/8)

Congratulations to the Junior netball team undefeated Broken Bay champions.

Wednesday was a wonderful day for this bunch of enthusiastic girls.

The first game was against St Peter’s and the girls were everywhere with all on court taking intercepts with the final score with a 24-4 win.

The second game was against Stella, traditionally a very strong school from Manly, the girls won this 20-5. This was our closest game for the day.

Great work from Capri Vidler, Georgia Dean, Elise Bond, Annie Dittmar, Shannyn Bissett, Kassidy Grant, Kyara Waaijer, Claudia McKenzie and Sasha Savenko

Thank you to the great parent support and the umpires on the day.

Mrs Walsh

Y7 Team

The Y7 team had a great start to their first ever MSB Representative Championships conceeding only one goal after three games! Convincing victories continued until the final where they faced a strong Stella Maris team. The game was a nail bitter with coach Lily Vidler living through each pass until the final whistle was blown with our girls winning by one goal! Congratulations to the following Y7 champions:

Jessica Barr, Emma Bourne, Samantha Dale, Erin Gracie, Sophie Hayman, Keisha Murray, Caitlin Walsh and Chloe Withford

MSB Representative Athletics Team

The team has been officially entered and emailed to all students to check carefully. Students who become unable to compete over the next few weeks will need to contact Mrs Grant urgently.

Broken Bay Golf Championships

Any student who is an experienced golfer and an affiliated golf club member and would like to enter the Broken Bay Golf championships on Friday 5 September please contact Mrs Grant prior to Friday 15 August.

NSW CCC KO Soccer Competition

Our Open Soccer team has now progressed to the quarter finals of the NSW CCC Knock Out Competition after a convincing 6-0 win against St Josephs Lochinvar last Wednesday. Goals were scored by Natalie Tobin (Y12) 3, Grace Gibbeson (Y9) 2 and Jasmine Boudib (Y10) 1. Thanks to the parents who provided transport and support, to Mrs Lewis for organising nets and Mr Campbell for his first aid assistance.

Mr Hume is now focused on our next game against Casimir College, Marrickville in week 5. Students will be emailed permission notes next Wednesday, again parent transport will be greatly appreciated.

Game report:

Last Wednesday, the Senior Soccer team continued their journey in the CCC Knockout competition against St Joseph's Lochinvar. After waiting so long from round 1 to round 2 there was a risk that the girls would not be switched on. Adding to this, Annabelle was badly injured in the opening minutes meaning we had to switch our defence around.

Any fears were quickly put to rest when Natalie scored from a free kick from 30 metres out and then Grace capitalised on a good move down the right edge to score our second goal.

In the second half our girls stepped up the pressure on a younger team from St Joseph's and scored 4 more times.

Congratulations to all involved and a big thanks goes to Mrs Grant for her organisation and Mr Campbell for his First Aid.

Mr Greg Hume
