End of Term 2 - Information and Highlights

End of Term 2

It has been another eventful term, and I recognise the efforts and achievements of many students in the Frensham community across these past nine weeks. The School’s Birthday Celebrations were truly joyous, celebrating the history, ethos, values and the future of Frensham Schools and also celebrating the opportunity for us to gather as a community in a somewhat more ‘normal’ way than was possible in 2020. Of course, we are not back to our full complement just yet and are not able to accommodate our pre-2020 Service numbers in school venues, but to be able to raise our voices together in song without restriction, participate in friendly sporting matches with Year 12, join with all students and staff in the Birthday Lunch in the Dining Room for the first time in over a year was very special indeed.

It has also been a pleasure to have read all Student Reports of their progress over this first semester, and to see the growth and development in maturity, skills and confidence that so many of them have experienced. Our feedback and advice to students is very focused on supporting future growth, and we encourage families across this vacation period to engage with their daughters in conversation about their learning their goals and aspirations for next term. This learning conversation, discussing academic strengths, weaknesses, areas for future focus, helps to keep students focused on their growth rather than their results or marks. Whilst important, too much of a focus on “scores” are somewhat secondary to students’ feelings of self-efficacy, independence and their mindset for future development.

We wish all families a safe and restful vacation period ahead and look forward to welcoming students back to Boarding Houses on Monday 12 July ready for classes to commence on Tuesday 13 July.

Parent Feedback
The Frensham Advisory Committee is an advisory body to the Head set up under rules approved by the Board of Governors. It meets at least three times each year to discuss matters raised by the Head or the committee members as pertaining to Frensham policy and procedures. There are often matters discussed in this forum that help to inform the School’s future plans and to give the Executive, through the Head, greater insight into a particular topic from a parent perspective.

Following the two meetings in Semester One, we invite parent feedback on two areas of the School’s operations. The first is the student catering provided and this brief survey will be conducted alongside a student survey and an evaluation of the overall catering offering. We also invite feedback through our Communications Survey, which seeks to understand the ways in which parents currently access required information, what is working well and suggestions for future improvements to be incorporated into our future planning in this area. Both surveys will be open until the end of the vacation period (Monday 12 July 2021).

Boarding

As the term draws to a close, girls are packing and readying themselves for a holiday break with family. The Boarding Houses will then prepare for a new group of girls in Term 3.

Winifred West wrote on 1 June 1920, One reason why school is good is because at school we meet people with different ideas, different temperaments, different outlooks, and so arises a greater demand for tolerance and imagination than is made at home. There is more need for ‘give and take’ and the experience of school should prove of value in life.

This same message applies today and is one of the primary outcomes of the boarding experience. Girls from country, city and even from overseas with different ideas and experiences learn to live together and become a cohesive and collaborative community. Girls are supported in the development of key qualities and dispositions as outlined in our Character Education framework. 

Next term, Year 7 and Year 8 students stay in their House of Origin, Year 12 are all located in Bryant McCarthy and all boarders from Years 9 to 11 move between Houses. 

Once House allocations are determined, careful planning occurs to decide on room allocations. Each House has a combination of different sized rooms, from single rooms through to rooms with eight beds. The aim is for all students to have an opportunity to experience a range of dorm sizes throughout their time at Frensham, finishing with Year 12 in single rooms. 

When determining the room allocations, significant discussion occurs between Heads of House and House staff, Year Coordinators and Executive staff. Decisions about rooms are never made lightly as girls will be sharing dorms and learning to live with girls of different personalities and needs. This approach is purposeful and made with each individual student in mind. We are currently working towards our new House and dorm allocations for next term.

We wish all girls a happy holiday and look forward to welcoming them back to new experiences and the strong friendships that will continue to develop in the coming term. 

Ms Amanda Graham, Director of Boarding

FACULTY FOCUS

English

While the study of English continues to evolve as all great learning should, at its heart, it is the study of literature. As the Year 12 Extension 1 English rubric notes:

Literary texts can invite responders to engage with the interior worlds of individuals and how they perceive, think and feel about themselves and the societies in which they live...how texts communicate notions of identity and alternative ways of being and thinking...how diverse textual representations enable the responder to experience insight into the lives of other groups and individuals, and other times and places.

From Years 7-12, students study the vast and different literary worlds, learning how stories transcend time and place. Engaging with these texts invites a reflection on their own world and their place in society. Here are some samples of what the girls have been studying over the course of the year.

A Word dropped careless on a Page
May stimulate an eye
When folded in perpetual seam
The Wrinkled Maker lie
Stanza 1
, Emily Dickinson

We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep. …
Prospero, The Tempest, William Shakespeare

I remembered that the real world was wide, and that a varied field of hopes and fears, of sensations and excitements, awaited those who had the courage to go forth into its expanse, to seek real knowledge of life amidst its perils.
Jane Eyre
, Charlotte Bronte

He had one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced, or seemed to face, the whole external world for an instant and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favour. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself.
The Great Gatsby
, F Scott Fitzgerald

This is the hottest summer I can remember, and the thick heat seems to seep in and keep in my sleepout. It's like the earth's core in here. The only relief comes from the cooler air that creeps in between the slim slats of my single window. It's near impossible to sleep, so I've spent most of my nights reading by the light of my kerosene lamp.

Tonight was no different. And when Jasper Jones rapped my louvres abruptly with his knuckle and hissed my name, I leapt from my bed, spilling my copy of Pudd'nhead Wilson.
Jasper Jones,
Craig Silvey

Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy.
Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend.
No animal shall wear clothes.
No animal shall sleep in a bed.
No animal shall drink alcohol.
No animal shall kill any other animal.
All animals are equal.
Animal Farm
, George Orwell

The course of true love never did run smooth
Lysander, A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream, William Shakespeare

Sometimes rain made me want to cry, like there was something deep inside me - the sadness flower that opened up when rainy days came, and blossomed inside me until I couldn’t breathe.
Lenny’s Book of Everything
, Karen Foxlee

What Matters Competition
Inspired by Gough Whitlam's commitment to involving young people in the shaping of Australia's future, the What Matters? writing competition is currently open to school students in Years 5 to 12, from Australia. Responding to the simple question 'what matters?', entrants are free to express their views on any matter they care about.

Girls from Years 7-11 were encouraged to put their passions and deeply held beliefs into words. It is clear at Frensham that there are many things that matter and teachers were impressed and inspired by the diverse range of entries. While it will be a couple of months before the shortlist is announced, it is undeniable that there is a strong link between writing and thinking deeply when students are given the opportunity to choose what they want to write about, then plan, craft and refine their work.

Bell Shakespeare - live action, Finally!
Students in Years 8, 9 and 10 were fortunate to have a live experience and a taste of two of Shakespeare’s most famous plays Romeo and Juliet, and Macbeth. Each performance explored key scenes and offered an analysis of Shakespeare’s language, choices and themes, all with a modern twist.

Ms Lee McGuinness, Head of English

HSIE

Our world is becoming increasingly complex, and the issues that our young people need to address are becoming more significant and overwhelming. Ecosystems are dying as unprecedented weather events decimate environments and the seemingly unstoppable march of climate change reshapes our landscapes. New technologies make the world a smaller place, but keep people further apart as we swap community for individuality. And a smaller world brings different cultures closer together, a process that can enrich us, but also makes our differences starker and more challenging. Our lives are being transformed by change. Geography’s focus on understanding the confluence of these changing forces makes it a vital discipline for all our students.

Change is a core theme throughout our Geography curriculum. We want students to recognise that there is both short term and long-term change, that it occurs at different and unexpected scales and that not all people are impacted by change at the same rate or in the same way. Most importantly, we want students to be skilled in identifying current trends and their implications for future change.

These trends are best explored when students are in the field, gathering data and learning about our world within the environments they are studying. Excitingly, Frensham’s new Year 10 IGCSE Geography programme provides students with significant opportunities to conduct field studies. Students have spent time exploring land use at Mittagong Marketplace, collected data on change in the vegetation and profile of Warilla Beach and conducted investigations into the Nattai River around the Lower Holt. As an essential element of their examinations at the end of the year, Year 10 are committed to improving their fieldwork skills and experience.

Year 9 Geography students have also been in the field, travelling to Sydney to conduct an investigation into urban change in Pyrmont and Barangaroo. Starting in Pyrmont, the girls were given a guided tour of the area going back to the land use of indigenous cultures prior to white settlement, the transformation the bay went through with the establishment of the Colonial Sugar Refinery site in the 19th century and the recent gentrification of significant sites throughout the suburb. Catching a ferry to Circular Quay, students compared the changing place of Pyrmont with that of Barangaroo. At both sites, students measured the soundscape and the height of buildings in the area (the new Crown Casino is 271.3m tall) while also making observations of salient features of the environment. Students concluded that the changing land use in the area was connected to the changing demands of the population in Sydney, making the link between place and communities stronger.

Change is also a constant theme in our classrooms. Year 7 students have conducted inquiries into the processes that change landscapes and landforms, creating features such as waterfalls, meandering rivers and cave systems. Students gathered sources of information, identified key processes and mapped these processes into a flow chart. Year 11 students conduct their Senior Geography Project on an area of individual interest, tracking change and communicating their findings to their chosen audience. Year 12 Senior Geography students have studied change in regard to our local viticulture industry and the urban dynamics in world cities, including Sydney.

Change is often referred to as the only constant in life. Thanks to their studies in Geography, our students will be well equipped to flourish in our continually changing world.

Australian Geography Competition
The Australian Geography Competition is a contest for Australian secondary school students, assessing their geographical knowledge and skills. The Competition aims to encourage student interest in Geography and to reward student excellence. Over 70,000 students sat the Australian Geography Competition in 2021.

Students in the top 1% of results in Australia: Bella Cay, Darcy Maple-Brown (Year 10); High Distinction (top 15% of results in Australia): Lucy Arnott, Augusta Muir (Year 10), Adelaide Ayling, Sophie Simpson, Imogen Smith, Sidney Wheeler (Year 9); Distinction (top 25% of results in Australia): Olivia Huggins, Millie McMurtrie, Janna Martin-Cooley, Phoebe Rouse (Year 10), Poppy Carter, Chloe Cowley, Claudia Hampson, Cate Horsfall, Abbey Kuiper, Holly Regan (Year 9).

Mr Nathan Bessant, Head of HSIE

Jamieson Programme

The Jamieson Programme is built on the belief that Teenagers are risk takers growing up in a complex and rapidly changing world. Traditional education was focused on the known whereas today’s world asks us to educate for the unknown.

Key elements of the programme are embedded throughout Years 7-10 including global citizenship, responsibility / service and leadership, health, fitness and physical challenge, critical, ethical and flexible thinking.

There is a particular focus in Year 9 where an extended day programme is undertaken once a fortnight. This semester, students have almost completed two elements of the Cambridge IGCSE Global Perspectives course. They enjoyed the challenge of working in teams to achieve an outcome that brought greater attention to their chosen global issue. Girls are now finalising their research on an independent topic of their choosing, considering a range of perspectives on the issue and working to establish courses of action to improve the negative effects of their global problem.

Other highlights for Year 9 have been learning about different religions, visits to the Nan Tien Temple and the Sydney Jewish Museum, current affairs and working on their fitness goals. Next term the girls will enjoy a three-day residential programme - Global Forum. The Forum is one of the central components of the Jamieson Programme and the 2021 theme is: Making a Difference - Understanding My Place in the World. Thought-provoking guest speakers – including Old-Girl Ms Annabelle Chauncy OAM, Dr Peter Anderson (UOW), Frensham parent, author and ‘Rurals for Refugees’ advocate Sarah Clutton and Rural Woman’s Award winner and Old Girl, Cressida Cains will inspire the girls this year. 

Teachers enjoy working with Year 9, exposing them to physical challenges and critical thinking about important issues that affect our world and we are very much looking forward to next semester.

Mrs Merrilee Harris, Director of Jamieson Programme

Music

Term 2 provided Frensham musicians and ensembles with many rich performance opportunities. The first major event was the Year 8 Weekend where, in the School Service, the Senior Choir sang an anthem to a live audience for the first time in 12 months. The anthem was composed for the Senior Choir back in 2020, as a response to the shock we all felt during the catastrophic drought and bushfires. It is titled Tulit Ergo which is the beginning of a passage from Genesis:

The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it. . . God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.

The piece is a reflection upon the increasingly critical issues that we all face, concerning our care for, and custodianship of our beautiful planet. Lily Hunt was the soprano soloist.

Traditionally, the Year 8 Service and Concert features all instrumental and vocal ensembles in the school and this year was no exception. The Junior Choir sang Ho Hey by the Lumineers (accompanied by Year 12 musicians), the Concert Band performed Van Morrison’s Brown Eyed Girl, the Kennedy Strings performed Enya’s May It Be and the Jazz Band played You’ve Got a Friend in Me from Toy Story. The final item featured all of Year 8 performing a traditional African song called Aya Ngena with three-part harmony, xylophones and drums.

In May, the Madrigals were asked to sing for guests at the launch of the Winifred West Legacy at Bendooley Estate. They sang Aretha Franklin song Since You’ve Been Gone featuring Grace Amos as soloist, and Frensham’s traditional grace, Non Nobis. 

Since 2020, there has been a programme in place for Gib Gate students in Years 2 and 3 to learn a string instrument under the guidance of music staff and extra-curricular tutors. On 2 June, the whole of Gib Gate visited Frensham to be given an introduction to a broader range of orchestral instruments. The Frensham Kennedy Strings and Concert Band combined to create a 70-piece orchestra, presenting a range of musical experiences including an introduction to the different orchestral families as well as a performance of Pirates of the Caribbean. The most memorable part of the afternoon was when students in the Gib Gate Junior Orchestra as well as the Stage 2/3 String Programme joined the Frensham students to play some pieces together. There were over 100 students performing together from Year 2 to Year 12! The aim of the experience was to build strong musical ties between junior and senior students and to inspire all involved to take full advantage of the musical opportunities on offer at Frensham Schools.

The Frensham Schools Birthday Service on Friday began with the violinists Hilary Swan and Chloe Litchfield playing the Processional with Mrs Pinazza. Grace Amos, Isabelle Promnitz and Amelia Byrne sang the solos in the much-loved One Voice. Grace Lewis was the cantor for the Lord's Prayer. In the Frensham Birthday and Year 12 Service on Sunday, Sophie Perkins accompanied Venite on the piano and Sachi Darling sang as cantor in The Lord's Prayer. 

In the concert that followed, Mrs Pinazza conducted the combined Kennedy Strings and Concert Band in a dramatic performance of theme music from Pirates of the Carribean. Madeleine Mulligan (Mus.1) and Sophie Perkins (Mus.2) then performed their own, original arrangement of Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody. Following this, the Madrigals presented a piece specially composed for their concert appearance. The lyrics of the piece, Share Your Truth, were taken from the text of, Australian of the Year, Grace Tame’s speech to the National Press Club in March of this year. As always, the final item in the concert featured a medley of songs selected and performed by all of Year 12.

The Madrigals have been rehearsing for the last few weeks in order to have four pieces ready for their annual entry in two choral sections of the City of Sydney Eisteddfod. Rather than relax after Birthday celebrations, the choristers continued to work hard and, on the Wednesday night, filmed their four items for video submission. The results will be published in early August.

Agriculture at Frensham

Year 9 Agriculture students have been studying egg and chicken meat production this term. They have been responsible for the care of 20 day-old chicks that arrived earlier in the term, and the class enjoying handling them and observing their growth, each lesson. They harvested the last of their summer vegetables and have now planted some winter varieties. The class has also been working on the Map My School Competition which involves them using the Scribble Maps programme to map the school boundary and determine the area of the school covered by trees.

The Year 10 Agriculture class has been studying milk production in the Dairy Production unit. Students travelled to Pyree, near Nowra, to visit a conventional 20-a-side herringbone dairy as well as a robotic dairy. The class was able to compare the two systems in regard to milk production, cow welfare and labour units required. At the robotic dairy, the cows come into the dairy on a voluntary basis. The computer reads the cow’s electronic collar, then portions out feed relevant to the cow’s weight, milk production and stage of lactation. While the cow is eating, lasers determine the location of the teats and then robotic arms place the teat cups on for milking. Once milking is complete, the cows then leave the robotic crate and electronic drafting gates direct them to either a pasture, silage feedlot or cattle crush for any treatment required. Of course, the highlight of the tour was the opportunity to hand feed the calves. The class is thrilled that lambing has just begun at Holt Farm.

Top row: Year 10 Agriculture students feeding calves, bottom row: Year 12 students sampling ‘paddock to plate’

Year 11 students have been studying the Animal Production unit and have conducted a trial on the growth rates of the Year 9 chicks. They are also excitedly preparing for their Ag on Tour trip early next term to ‘Allawah’, in Illabo, the property of Frensham parents, Nicole and John Hopkins.

Year 12 girls are working through the Plant / Animal Production unit as well as completing past HSC exam questions to fine-tune their answering technique in preparation for their Trial Examination next term. Earlier in the term, the class had a visit from Mr David Kent, past Chevalier College Agriculture teacher who purchased ‘Wesley’ (one of the Angus steers from the Livestock Team) at the Sydney Royal Easter Show steer auction. He brought with him some cuts of beef and the class analysed the quality of the cuts as well as photos of the carcass. At the end of the lesson, the students cooked up different cuts of meat to taste and compare as well as some valued added products such as home-made sausages, rissoles and a casserole. The class would like to thank Mr Kent, for not only purchasing our steer, but for providing a practical insight into ‘paddock to plate’ in the beef industry.

Holt Farm has been little quieter this term without the steers, but just in the last 3 days the sound of newborn lambs have been echoing across the paddocks. Over the term, the livestock have been cared for by a group of students who are completing Farm Management as the Service component of their Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.

ICAS Academic Competitions at Frensham Schools Term 3 for Years 2-11

In 2021, we will be offering the opportunity for all students from Years 2-11 to enter the ICAS competitions.

International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) is designed to provide a measure of student achievement in an external assessment situation against other students who demonstrate a high level of ability in a variety of disciplines. It allows students an additional opportunity to apply their higher order thinking and problem-solving skills in English, Mathematics, Science, Writing and Digital Technologies and gain recognition for their efforts. For all tests, a high level of literacy is assumed, including highly developed comprehension skills in a ‘limited time’ situation, including in the Mathematics and Science papers.

The ICAS papers are not designed to test the NESA syllabus in any discipline and are set at ‘above level’ knowledge of discipline content and skills. Students will be presented with high-quality, expert-developed multiple-choice style questions, allowing them to apply their learning without the need for prior study or revision. For Writing they will be provided with an age-appropriate stimulus and will write either a narrative or persuasive style response. 

All ICAS Assessments are now online, a move that reflects a sector-wide transition to online assessments. This allows greater accessibility for students and faster delivery of results. The assessment programme, supervised by teachers, will be run at School at Gib Gate for Years 2-6 and at Frensham for Years 7-11.

Final reminder: Parents can enrol their son or daughter in any, or all of the disciplines we offer by completing the Google form before the cut-off date of Thursday 17 June.
