2014 SACE ACHIEVEMENT
Daniel Hill attended Government House on Tuesday 10
February for the SACE Merit Ceremony 2015. Daniel
received a Merit for Mathematical Studies making it two
merits he has received as part of his SACE studies. Daniel
was presented with his award by Dr Joshua Ross (pictured
left) from the School of Mathematical Science at Adelaide
University.
Daniel also received a Principal’s Scholarship from The
University of Adelaide (pictured right). The presentation was
made on 23 February at Bonython Hall. Daniel will use the
scholarship to assist with the costs of his studies in Economics (Advanced).
CAMBRIDGE IMMERSE 2015: AN EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE IN AUGUST 2015
www.cambridgeimmerse.com
Cambridge Immerse is a two-week residential educational experience that allows participants to gain an insight into a
chosen discipline, ranging from the arts to the sciences. Subjects offered include Medicine, Law, Economics and
Engineering. Tutorials and seminars are taught by highly regarded tutors from Cambridge University in an optimal
learning environment that stimulates academic enquiry; yet the carefully planned schedule ensures that the
programme not only meets the academic needs of the participants, but also provides a unique insight into the
university city through an abundance of activities.
A carefully designed curriculum provides participants with an in-depth understanding of a wide range of topics,
allowing students share and develop more informed and engaging responses to key debates within each discipline.
Students are challenged, and emerge more confident and ready to articulate what they have learnt, with knowledge of
their chosen fields that provides fascinating insights beyond the school syllabus – and, of course, many unforgettable
memories along the way.
Students reside in Queen’s College one of central Cambridge’s most beautiful university colleges.
Enrolment in the program is ongoing, and students aged 15 and above are welcome to apply. Further information is
available at www.cambridgeimmerse.com. A PDF version of the prospectus is also available to view at
https://www.cambridgeimmerse.com/CambridgeImmerse2015.pdf
Applications are online through the website. Further information can be provided by

WORK EXPERIENCE (JUNE 15-19): AN IMPORTANT REMINDER
All Year 10 students should have their Work Experience preparation at the forefront of their minds. Hopefully
employers have been contacted to register your interest and Work Experience Forms (Available from Student Services)
are being completed.
A number of students have seen me about possible placements or difficulties in finding an employer. Unfortunately,
statewide there are many students applying for work experience and it is not always possible to secure an exact
placement. However, many students yet to experience the world of work can, and do, benefit from an experience in a
field of interest or a secondary career they have been considering.
The school can support students in this process through Luke Northcote or Sue Booth in Student Services; however, we
are not able to organize specific placements for students.
Students unable to organize a placement will be provided with an alternative program here at school during Work
Experience week. Specific questions can be directed to Luke Northcote via the school.

BLACKWOOD HIGH SCHOOL HIGH ACHIEVERS
 Congratulations to Georgia Brown in Year 12, who was selected for the SASI Netball competition in
Sydney from 8 to 12 February 2015.
 Congratulations to Harry Jones-Ashwell in Year 9 who was selected in the South Australian Squash
Development Squad to play in the Australian Junior Open in Sydney from 2 -7 April.
YEAR 8 UPDATE
YEAR 8 SPORTS DAY
I was pleased to see the high levels of student participation and engagement at the
Year 8 Sports Day. Most students were in House colours, and many had made the extra
effort to wear costumes or body paint. The competition was fierce but light-hearted,
with a perfect mix of novelty events and more serious preparation for the whole school
Athletics Day. Points were tallied for House Points and Care Group points as part of the
Burfield Shield competition. At the end of the day Madigan (Blue) won the House
competition, and Ms Princi’s 8C Cheetahs won the Care Group competition.
PASTORAL CARE PROGRAM
So far this term, Extended Care Group time has been used for Pool Day, student
induction and assemblies. This week has seen the beginning of the Pastoral Care
Curriculum. These lessons are designed to link throughout the year, building student
resilience, self-awareness and confidence. Activities target a range of personal and interpersonal skills, and supporting
student growth and development. In Term 1, the focus is on helping students develop a positive sense of self and set
goals for the year based on their values and strengths.
VACCINATIONS
The first round of vaccinations will occur on 17 March. The process is scheduled to make minimal disruption to class,
and to be as fast and pain-free as possible. Parents and carers are encouraged to discuss vaccinations with their
children, and to provide reassurance if they are nervous. All students should have returned the consent forms.
Dr Tinsley, Year 8 Leader
CHANGES TO MIDDLE YEARS PROGRAM (YEARS 8 – 10) ASSESSMENT IN 2015:
For the last couple of years the International Baccalaureate (IB) have been working with schools – such as ours – to
review the Middle Years Program (MYP) and suggest changes. 2015 has seen the first year of these changes come into
practice. This includes, a greater conceptual emphasis in the program, as well as some changes in the way that subjects
are taught and assessed.
Parents who have been at the school for more than one year are likely to notice different assessment criteria on their
child’s report card in Years 8 to 10. All learning areas will now have four assessment criteria, each with a maximum
achievement level of ‘8’.
Please find examples of the MYP assessment criteria for both English and Health & PE below:
English
Health and Physical Education
a) Analysing
e) Knowing and understanding
b) Organising
f) Planning for performance
c) Producing text
g) Applying and performing
d) Using language
h) Reflecting and improving performance
Students will be given multiple attempts to demonstrate their achievement against each of these criteria across the
semester until they are finalised and used to determine final 1 – 7 grade for the subject at the end of the semester.
Nick Gillies, IBMYP Coordinator
CANTEEN UPDATE – NO NEED TO LINE UP
All students can pre-order and pay for their Recess or Lunch prior to 9.00 am at the Canteen.
Please go to the large green door on the eastern side of the Canteen (by the shelter shed).
All staff will be happy to help. This includes paying for food, drinks, chips and ice blocks.
Order early and there is no need to line up and you won’t miss out on your favourite food
choice.

CULTURAL PHYSICS PRACTICAL
Last Thursday Year 12 Physics students and Sam
Thomson, our Pastoral Care Worker held a cultural
Physics experience for our International students.
The students joined Sam for some billy tea and
damper at the back of the Visual Arts Centre. It
was more than just a social occasion as the
students were involved with the preparation
process. After a brief demonstration the
International students, in groups of three, built and
lit their own cooking fires, prepared damper rolls,
with flour, water and sultanas. While their camp
ovens were cooking, using the coals form the fires,
the students attended a boomerang throwing
demonstration by Mr Learmonth.
The Year 12 Physics
class was learning a
unit on centrifugal
force
and,
as
everyone knows, a
good cup of billy tea
depends on the tea
leaves being sent to
the bottom of the
billy by some skilful
swinging, which Kabilan and Parsa mastered quite quickly.
The delicate blend of tea, Amgoorie and Earl Grey, was accompanied by the
hot buttered damper rolls topped with apricot jam and was enjoyed by all
the students. It certainly was a new and intriguing experience for the International students.

ELITE SOFTBALLERS’ VISIT
Our Year 11 PE classes were treated to clinics by elite
softballers Monica Perry and Alicia Herron last week.
Monica and Alicia are American imports for Sturt Falcons
Softball Club. Monica is a pitcher and Alicia is a strong
batter. It is no surprise that Sturt are on top of the ladder.
Mr Aulert and Mr Smith’s classes were led through batting,
fielding and pitching drills then played a game where
Monica pitched. Students were in awe of her pitching
speed and both the girls’ power and skill level. Both classes
were given a fantastic insight into more specific skill
technique and game plays.

THE NATIONAL YOUNG LEADERS DAY 2015
On Monday 2 March, four students, Riley Mitchell, Lachlan Jeffries,
Cooper Goss and Nathaniel Ramesh, along with Student Counsellor,
Ms Argie Buesnel, attended the National Young Leaders Day, hosted
by the Halogen Foundation at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
There was a great line-up of guest speakers arranged by the
foundation. Michael Martin, Executive Director of The Halogen
Foundation; Matthew Cowdrey, Australia’s greatest ever
Paralympian; Rachael Leahcar (pictured with our students), second
runner up on The Voice in 2012; Andrea Boyd, the only Australian
in the International Space Station Flight Control Team; Sonya Ryan,
founder of the Carly Ryan Foundation; Andrew Montesi, co-founder
of international youth mental health platform TalkLife and Carolyn
Curtis, CEO of The Australian Centre for Social Innovation.
The theme of the conference this year was to ‘GET STARTED’, in relation
to ideas or problems that us, as individuals, had recognised in our
everyday life. Each guest speaker talked to us about how they got to
where they are now, what they did to get started and the obstacles that
they faced. There was also The Expo we could visit during the morning
and lunch breaks. There were a group of organisations and tertiary
educators providing information on various courses, programs and cocurricular activities that may help our future development as leaders. It
was truly inspiring to hear the stories of the guest speakers and I am sure
that all who took part were determined to become better leaders.

Visual Arts – ‘Come Out Festival’
Jenny Remete and I were invited to a conference at the
end of last year to be part of this year’s Come Out
Children’s Festival. The theme is based on Building
Bridges and Peace for the Future.
We have been asked to create 50 flags using tie-dye as a
background with a peace symbol which will be riso silk
screened. We have also been asked to make and design
two large flags based on the Peace theme incorporating
Community based symbols both within our local
community and wider communities.
The students
involved are a large group of Year 8 students currently doing Visual Arts.
This is a wonderful opportunity and we hope to take part in the flag
waving during the festival.
Students have already started some research and are currently
investigating peace symbols from all cultures to develop their original
ideas
There will be more updates as we progress.

INFORMATION FOR PARENTS OF SENIOR STUDENTS
My name is Kirrilie Smout and I am a clinical psychologist who works with teenagers. I am from Developing Minds and
we are working with the school this year to help the students achieve their best results.
This month we spoke to the students about how they might be able to motivate themselves to study, regularly
complete homework and stay organised. We talked about research which shows that “IQ” is only responsible for a
small part of success at school. In other words, it doesn’t much matter how smart you are. What matters more is
what you do during the year.
We also talked with the students about how they might motivate themselves to regularly work on study.
Some of the most important strategies included: 1) using written lists and visual reminders rather than relying on their
memory for knowing what they have to do; 2) setting up habits and systems to get things done (link an action with
some kind of trigger – a time or place or activity) and 3) doing shorter focussed periods of homework/study rather than
longer periods where they were being constantly distracted by phones/social networking. We suggested they do this
by putting phones across the room for 15 minute periods, closing programs and using software to limit access to
programs – all for short periods of time.
We also discussed using mini rewards and punishments for themselves to increase motivation, using
“chunking” (starting with a small, easy step, or trying to study in short periods rather than wait until a long extended
period of time) and motivating ourselves to start by imagining what it will feel like to do well or to be disappointed in
ourselves.
It was great to work with the students. We have encouraged them to email us with any questions and we will see them
next term to talk about revision strategies.
Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions as a parent. If you would like some more support in
helping your student through senior school then there are a range of free articles on my website:
www.developingminds.net.au or you can access them via our facebook page Developing Minds Psychology and
Education.

DIGITAL ENTERPRISE PATHWAYS – SUPPORT FOR STUDENTS WHO HAVE
AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDERS (ASD) AND OTHER DISABILITIES
Digital Enterprise: Pathways to Education and Employment for Young People with Disabilities is a national program
funded by the Australian Government Department of Education under the Broadband Enabled Education and Skills
Services Programme. It is a joint initiative based at the University of South Australia and involving four universities, two
registered training organisations, state government and not for profit community organisations in South Australia, the
Northern Territory, Victoria and New South Wales.
Digital Enterprise programs are being establishing in four technology-enabled spaces, in four states, to provide high –
tech learning programmes for groups of young people aged 10 to 35 who have Autism Spectrum Disorders and related
disabilities. Through challenging and developing their IT skills, the program aims to foster their sense of personal
initiative, reduce isolation, develop entrepreneurial skills and increase their rate of participation in further education
and employment.
Digital Enterprise is extending these benefits to other young people with disabilities who would like to access training
that will significantly develop their technical interests and increase their technical abilities and employable skills. For
those who are aged 16 or over, who will learn entrepreneurial skills, the program will open up a range of post-school
options including enhanced employability, capacity to establish new businesses, and pathways to further education.
The link to the homepage is http://digital-enterprise-pathways.net/. There is information about how to participate,
learning resources and resources for families.
YEAR 12 PRESENTATION
The Year 12 Cohort have recently had
some opportunities to explore their future
career and study options through the
assistance of Flinders University and the
Prospective Student Department.
The entire class of 2015 were lucky
enough to be visited by Careers Specialist
Mark Gregory who has been in to work
with many Blackwood High School
students over the last few years. Through
this presentation students were given
advice on taking a proactive role in researching their future and ensuring they build the employability skills needed for
the future job market.
Another Flinders University initiative that we at Blackwood High School are accessing is giving students direct access to
faculty staff and students from the University to discuss in detail future course options and career specialties. The first
of these was with the Engineering Department. Those who signed up to attend gained a better insight into the diverse
range of specialties that exist within the field of Engineering.
Further sessions will continue at various times through the coming semester with Social Work, IT, Criminology, Biology
and Environmental Science,
Paramedics
and
The
Bachelor of Arts + course all
scheduled to visit. Students
interested in taking up one
or
more
of
these
opportunities should keep
their ear out for any notices
and an eye out for sign-up
sheets.
