From the Headmaster

Dear Parents

Open Day saw many families tour Glendalough and Heyington. As always, our boys were the essence of the afternoon, guiding and conversing with our visitors. It was so pleasant to meet a number of Old Collegians, with sons by their side, some for the first time and others I had taught. Our Music staff were here in force to conduct our talented musicians. My sincere thanks to all the staff of Glendalough and those in leadership roles from Heyington and Waterford who were here to chat and run displays, particularly colleagues who had sport the day previously. It is a mark of the professionalism and generosity of our staff that they were so engaging and ebullient on Sunday. Finally, my thanks to our Mothers’ Associations for the hospitality they provided in Boyd Egan and Smith Halls. Your presence sent to those visiting, a strong message of community, commitment and service being key elements of our community.

While extending best wishes to all mothers for a special day on Sunday, I restate my invitation to mothers and sons to join us for Mass this Friday (8.10am in the Chapel of St Kevin) and afterward to be part of the blessing of our new Heyington quadrangle sculpture – Mary and Jesus: Mother and Son.

Last Friday evening, I was entertained by the St Catherine’s and St Kevin’s production of Sweet Charity. The young lady in the lead, Demi Markakis, was very talented. The lads who featured most prominently were Sam McCabe as Oscar Lindquist, Antony Sinni as Herman, Philip Borg as Vittorio Vidal and Charles Staindl as Daddy Brubeck. Well done to all the boys who took the opportunity to be involved! Hamlet features this week in the Ruby Tout with two of our VCE Theatre Studies classes each presenting an Act from one of Shakespeare’s classics. Tickets are available through the College website. Whilst I am in a ‘stage’ mood, may I promote our Years 7-9 Musical, High School Musical Jnr, a joint SKC/LMH production mid this month: 2.00pm Sunday 15 May, 7.00pm 17 – 19 May at Vaucluse Hall, Waterford Campus. Tickets are also available online via the College website.

We gathered as a full College to celebrate the Feast Day of Edmund Rice on Tuesday. Mass was celebrated by Fr Mathieson OFM Cap, on the courts in the Wilding Centre. Each section of the College completed the day with a celebration and activities. At Glendalough, a boy-directed mini fair raises funds for the Edmund Rice Foundation. Years 7 – 9 participated in a Walkathon with the funds earmarked for Africa via the Edmund Rice Foundation. Years 10 – 12 took the opportunity for Tutor Group outings. All six Houses ran House-specific fundraising for the Edmund Rice Foundation throughout the year. St Kevin’s takes the House monies, the Edmund Rice day Glendalough Fair monies, the Years 7 – 9 Walkathon funds and adds this to the funds from the Zimele Dinner and Zimele Walkathon to produce our overall contribution to the wonderful work in Africa under the banner of the Edmund Rice Foundation.

The Tutor Group outings fulfil a very different purpose. Be it sharing a meal or an activity, they are designed to build relationships between boys and with the Tutor. The day is of particular importance for the Year 10 boys as they complete their move into the senior Houses.

Public thanks are due to Mrs Power and all the Ministry Team, our musicians and choirs for the Mass. My admiration is extended to the Tutors for the range and diversity of the senior outings, to the Middle School and Waterford teams, guided by Mr Guinane, for the Walkathon, and Glendalough staff for coping with excited boys, lollies, drinks and high winds!

Kind regards


Stephen F Russell

 
St Kevin's will value diversity and friendship within the community.

Faith and Mission

Our Headmaster, Mr Russell reminded the boys during Assembly on Monday that Mother’s Day was coming up and not to forget. He also encouraged the boys not to just scribble something on a card, but genuinely write to their mums. As I sat there, listening, I couldn’t help but ask myself "Had I done that?". Then I remembered that Ireland’s Mother’s Day was back in March so I was off the hook there. But then that sense of dread descended as I realised I had finally remembered that thing that was just out of reach in the back of my mind; I had not sent a birthday card. My mother’s birthday is 3 May and as it was 2 May, there was no hope of getting a card home to Ireland in time. So instead, I have taken Mr Russell’s sound advice and have decided to write something instead. My mother is the number one reader of all my recent writing in the Newsletter and, although I appreciate it’s a day late, Mum, I hope you like this.
Dear Mum,

Happy Birthday!

I am quite daunted about writing this letter as I do not know how to put everything I want to say into words. Or rather, I do not really believe words can fully express what I am trying to say. A big hug, a walk or probably the most fitting option, sitting watching a few episodes of the Gilmore Girls, would best get across what I need to. But here we are, opposite sides of the world and an annoying time difference apart that makes none of that possible, so we have this letter.

Thank you.

Thank you for everything. As I look back over the astonishing, and possibly embarrassing, twenty-six years I lived at home, to list everything would account to a novel. Thank you for always putting us first, to the extent that you always came in second, if not third, after Dad. We never went without but you did. I think back and remember fondly the Irish Dancing costume you hand embroidered or the Musto jacket or the summer craft projects you would buy us at the start of our summer holidays. Of course there was, and is, so much more. Thank you for the parcels of ‘Irish joy’, full of all those goodies we miss from home.
Thank you for your work ethic. You and Dad, through your constant work, have installed these values in me. I had such great examples growing up and I get to reap so many benefits from your influence. Thank you for instilling a love of reading in me. Although we do not exactly have the same taste in books, seeing you constantly with a book, as you sped-read through almost anything you could get your hands on, has left a lasting impression of the importance of reading with me.
Thank you for the walks, Masses, lunches and almost constant coffees. No trip away from home, ever, was complete until we had a coffee somewhere. For all the time you gave me. I know you are always there to listen.

Thank you for putting us through University and supporting me when I went back to study while working full time. Thank you for getting me into University in the first place. I will always remember the day you filled out my University-choice form and I was insistent I did not need it as my first option was sewn up; well that turned out not to be the case. I cannot fathom how different my life would be if you had not put down the course you did. You know me so well, better than I did at the time and here I am now and cannot imagine being happier doing any other kind of job.

Last, for now, but certainly not least, thank you for always being my biggest fan. It is hard not to believe in yourself when you have someone, like you, that has such an outstanding belief in you. My unwarranted poise comes directly from this notion that you believe I can do anything. You have always supported anything I have taken to doing, thank you.

Lots of love,

Alice

High School Musical Jr

Tickets are now on sale for the Years 7 - 9 SKC/Loreto Musical High School Musical Jr.

The musical is based on the 2006 smash-hit movie, High School Musical. The show follows the relationship between basketball star Troy and academic whiz Gabriella. Despite their differences, the pair bonds over their shared love of singing. Other quirky characters include competitive theatrical brother and sister Ryan and Sharpay, as well as Martha, who loves hip-hop, and Zeke, who loves baking.

The large cast of almost 70 students from St Kevin’s and Loreto has been working together since the beginning of the year on the singing, dancing and acting to bringing this entertaining story to life. The cast portrays the various factions that are found in American high schools – jocks, cheerleaders, thespians and brainiacs. The catchy score includes hits “Get’cha Head in the Game” and “We’re All in This Together.”

Performances for High School Musical Jr will be held at St Kevin’s Waterford campus in Richmond. The show is suitable for all ages.

Bookings are now open.

Open Day Update

The Smith Hall took on the attributes of My Kitchen Rules this past Sunday. With one hour to go, the enthusiasm and positiveness of our lovely ladies of SKC left no stone unturned. The first round of recruits under the guidance of Ms Jacinta Chute (Year 11), were able to orchestrate and execute the cutting of chicken, egg and ham & cheese sandwiches (with 15 loaves of bread) and 200 scones (with jam & cream), plus an assortment of biscuits – all pattered by the 1:00pm start. Not to mention preparing coffee and tea. A resourceful Mrs Liz Burrill crept into the Cricket Cupboard to ensure we had enough platters and aprons to accommodate all.

Many thanks to the following ladies and sincere apologies if anyone has not been mentioned - there were a number of SKC Mothers on the day assisting as their sons were performing. Thank you for your help:
Jacinta Chute, Ciel Neenan, Liz Burrell, Angela Cannon, Kate McIntosh, Yvonne Briggs, Susan Lynch, Donna Hayes, Ann James, Viv Cameron, Ann Beadell, Kate Tonge, Tina Hogarth, Jacqueline Dinan, Dominique Rogers, Jo Thomas, Heidi Fry, Lenore Neath, Kate Rice & Jo Sudano

Many thanks to these lovely ladies of SKC for your contribution and attention to detail this past Sunday. Our visitors felt extremely welcomed and the efforts which you displayed were so appreciated for the afternoon tea presented in Smith Hall.

Generations in Jazz

A number of Choristers will be attending Generations in Jazz in Mt Gambier this weekend. As this is a major school activity and Mr Werner has provided me with a list of those involved, it will not be necessary for individual Choristers to apply for leave from their duties this Sunday. However, those tenors, basses and altos involved in the tour should still attend their rehearsal this evening.
