Term 1 has come to an end. As a school we have had our trials and
tribulations and my congratulations to all the students and staff who have
handled the good and the bad with grace and dignity. My thanks also go
out to the parents who have supported their children during this time.
Their education is a partnership between the school and the parents and
carers to support them in whatever way we can.
Year 12 students have finished their half yearly exams. These are a good
indication on how they are progressing in the Higher School Certificate
course. There is still a long way to go so the exams are also a good
indicator of areas of weakness that need to be worked on with the
support of the teachers.
Congratulations to the girls cricket team who travelled to Bathurst to
compete in a four team play off for the title. The girls represented
Maclean High School with distinction and eventually finished third only
to be beaten by the eventual winners Hunter Sports High School in the
semi-final. Thank you to Mrs Johnson for all her organisation and to the
parents who supported the team along their journey.
A reminder regarding the CHANGE of DATE for our Staff Development
Day for Term 2. It has been moved to MONDAY, 2nd MAY, which is the
Monday of the second week back. Students return to school on Tuesday,
26th April. The focus for our Staff Development Day is on student and
staff wellbeing. The change of date is to accommodate presenters and to
secure an appropriate venue. Thank you for your understanding.

CAPA Department Update
The CAPA Department would like to welcome back Ms Simpson and also
welcome Mr Skipper who is teaching Visual Arts and Language. We have been
busy producing some beautiful work this term. We enjoyed our excursion to
Brisbane APT. This motivated Year 11 students and gave them some exciting
ideas towards planning their HSC artworks. Year 12 students are well underway
with their HSC, spending lunch times, and in between exams, on their Concept
and Artwork. Year 7 students are looking forward to the River of Learning,
they have been working with Ms Breckenridge on their art work and will be
displaying the finished product on the day. Year 8 students have been drawing,
discovering different cultures through mask making and developing their
own stencil artwork. Year 9 students are doing Sculpture Under the Sea and
photography is booming with sugar skulls, paper figures and darkroom prints.
Year 10 Visual Arts students are working with clay.
Keep your eyes peeled at the Maclean Show for some of the artworks from
our talented art students. If you are interested in upcoming Film Making
Workshops in May, have a chat with one of the Visual Arts teachers. All entries
need to be in soon for the River of Learning Art Competition. Also, recent
updates are on our Facebook page and website.

Deputy Principal’s Report
What a hectic term it has been with some challenges, like the
need for a new timetable, and many successes. Year 7 and I
have settled in well to Maclean High School. In one short term
there have been too many highlights to mention them all. They
include sporting successes (Girls Cricket - 3rd in the State),
special events organised by the Student Representative Council
(Shave for a Cure), visits by the Stellar team from Southern
Cross University, lots of great excursions - the Year 7 Cultural
Tours and the Year 11 Heron Island trip to name a few. Year 6
students (from our feeder primary schools) enjoyed Transition
Day and Year 12 students are on their way to finishing their time
at Maclean High School by winding up their first examination
period.
I would like to thank all those families who work closely with
us to ensure the students at Maclean High School behave in
a way that reflects our core values represented by FRESH. It
was fantastic to see so many parents and carers come along
to our Term 1 Parent Teacher Evening. Our major contact for
Term 2 will be via written formal reports. At school we are
strengthening our systems by utilising the various components
of Sentral software. It is how we monitor attendance and
behaviour, and this term we have expanded the use of Sentral
to track Information Technology, General Assistance and Work
Health and Safety concerns, and next term we will be completing
reports using this software. Our aim is for parents to access
Sentral via a parent portal so families can have real time access
to their student’s attendance and positive incidents of behaviour.
To do this we need parents and carers, who have not already
done so, to register their current email address with the school.
You can do this by phoning the school on 6645 2244 or emailing
Maclean High School at [email protected]
I would like to congratulate the vast majority of students who
have exhibited, through their positive behaviour, the core values
represented by FRESH. Unfortunately from time to time a small
minority of students require closer monitoring to ensure this
outcome. During the term a team have been meeting once a
week after school to revise discipline implementation guidelines.
Next term we have made some changes to the way we are
monitoring those students, who because of their behaviour or
attitude, have been placed on the level system.
Lastly, I wish everyone a safe and happy break from the school
routine.
Mrs Gaye Kelsey, Deputy Principal.

Apology for Incorrect Date in Last
Newsletter
In the ‘Dates to Remember’ section of the last
Newsletter the 26th April was incorrectly named
as the Staff Development Day.
The correct date for the Term 2
Staff Development Day is Monday, 2nd May.
Due to recent tragic events, and the welfare of our
staff and students, the Term 2 Staff Development Day
will be focused on mental health maintenance and
strategies to deal with this. To engage the appropriate
presenters for the day the date has changed from
Tuesday, 26th April to Monday, 2nd May, (the first
Monday of the second week back). This means that
Maclean High School will operate a normal timetable
on Tuesday, 26th April for all students but will not be
operating on Monday, 2nd May as there will be no
staff present at school.

shaved at various places around the Clarence
Valley. These students have been diligently
collecting money for this cause and should be
congratulated for their giving spirit.
The SRC helped to raise money for the Leukaemia

Year 7 Drama
This year, the Year 7 cohort is the first year group to get a regular dose
of Drama as a part of their English course. Once a fortnight students
are getting out of the English classroom and into the Drama hall to
experientially tackle the issue of bullying and build group resilience.
Every student in these classes has admitted to witnessing, and or,
experiencing bullying at least once in their lifetimes. Drama is a way
of exploring these issues in a safe and meaningful manner. Students
discuss, explore and enact then perform bullying situations from their
real life experiences. After each performance the student-actors are
questioned by their classmates about their character’s motives and
feelings after the bullying incident. The audience then identifies ways
in which the characters could act differently to bring about a more
positive outcome for all involved in the bullying incident. The aim is to
build students’ resilience towards any bullying they may encounter by
developing strategies to help themselves and their peers get help. As a
result of these Drama lessons the students are building confidence and
getting more comfortable with the other members of their class. The
enthusiasm and energy of the Year 7 students this term has made the
learning both meaningful and productive. We are now looking forward
to building their storytelling and performance skills for next term.......

Open Touch Football
On Monday 21st March the Open Boys and Girls Touch Team travelled to Goonellabah to be part of the
Combined High Schools Knockout Competition and the Northern Rivers Zone Trials. Upon arrival both teams
were straight out on the paddock with the boys contesting Alsonville High School and the girls Kyogle High
School. These were great games for our students to get to know each other’s game and display the prowess
and skill level of our teams. With each team comfortably winning by 4 touchdowns it placed them in a good
position for the next games.
The girls next encounter was against a very fit Alstonville High School team. With only eight girls available on
the day, due to a number of factors, our girls battled wearily through the game but unfortunately the fitness
of the Alstonville girls proved too much for the Maclean side.
The boys game was closely contested with the newly combined “The Rivers” School. Both teams displayed
some excellent skills in both attack and defence and at the final hooter a draw meant the winner was still
undecided. This proceeded to a “dropoff” to gain a result so the winning team could progress to the next
round. After three minutes in extra time the teams were down to 4 on 4 and The Rivers School dived over
the line for a concluding try.
Despite being out of the knockout from this point the students displayed some fantastic skills and many
of our students were looked at for selections into the Northern Rivers teams. Congratulations to Eathan
Kapeen, Nathan Hollis, Shane Dennis, Christian Whittaker and Brianna McFarlane who have all gained
selection to represent the Northern Rivers Zone Team at Goonellabah on the 9th April early next term.
We wish you all the best for selection at the next level.
Mrs Kylie Lowe and Mr Andrew Whiteside.
NSWCHS Swimming Championships
Congratulations to the following students who gained
selection in the North Coast team to attend the

held in Bathurst. Congratulations to Carly Leeson
who captained NSWCHS XI to win the NSW Schoolgirls
Championship. Carly’s excellent batting and bowling
earned her a place in the NSW Honorary All Stars team,
a position she has held for the past three years. Carly was
lucky to bring the Lord Taverners Shield back to Maclean
High School before it returns to Sydney.

Each girl has made an important contribution to
the overall success of the team.
Cricket girls exult with best ever
result!
Maclean High School’s progression through the 2015/16
CHS Girl’s Cricket Competition has ended on a high note
with Maclean achieving a very commendable 3rd place
out of 270 teams across the State. Last week the team
made the arduous 12 hour journey to Bathurst to attend
the semi-finals and finals of the competition which is
officially known as the Marie Cornish Trophy, Marie being
a famous cricketer from yesteryear who continues to play
a major role in the development of young cricketers.
Maclean met the formidable Hunter Sports High
School, last year’s winner, in their semi-final. Hunter
won the toss and sent Maclean into bat. Captain
Carly Leeson’s perofrmance with the bat was mature,
patient and faultless, batting for the entire innings
to make 120 not out. She was well supported by
Alyssa Lawrence, Alyssa Luland, Zara Tabor, Shannon
Moran, Shinae Macdonald, Rhiannah Woods and
Brianna McFarlane. Maclean was feeling quite
cock-a-hoop when it amassed a very competitive total
of 178. This feeling of elation and confidence was
short-lived as Hunter proceeded to make fast work of
reaching the winning total in the 20th over. Best bowling
figures were achieved by Carly with 1 for 20 off 5 overs.
Matilda Arndell also chipped in with a very exciting final
over.
This semi-final loss put Maclean into a playoff for 3rd
against Blayney High School. After losing the toss
Maclean was sent into bat. Once again Maclean’s batting
performance was solid, setting Blayney a target of 172
with Alyssa Lawrence 3, Carly 33, Shinae 60 not out and
Alyssa Luland not out on 48. Maclean bowled and fielded
brilliantly with Shinae being the pick of the bowlers taking
5 for 6 off 7 overs. Blayney was never in the hunt being
all out for 56 in the 24th over. It was a fairy tale finish
with Brianna Roberts taking the final wicket caught by
Kimberley Beilby.
Hunter Sports High School was the eventual winner of the
Marie Cornish Trophy after a very convincing win against
Mulwaree High School in the final.
The attitude and behaviour displayed by all
players at all times, both on and off the field, has
been exceptional and appreciated by officials
and supporters. They have been wonderful
ambassadors for the school continuing Maclean
High School’s excellent reputation in this arena.
Well done girls.
Girls Bill Turner Trophy 15’s Girls
On the 6th April a band of new footballers to
Maclean High School played Macauley College
in the first round of the State knockout. The
girls were under pressure right from the
start and conceded three goals in the first 15
minutes. If it wasn’t for the bravery and agility
of Erin Shugg in goals, it could have been a
lot more. At half time it was 3-0 and the girls
had resolved to defend harder and work more
for each other. They certainly did that, and it
was unlucky that we conceded only one goal
in the second half, for a final score of 4-0. It
was a good improvement on the first half
effort as the girls all became more familiar
with the role they had to play. All the girls
tried their best and it was good to see the
improvement in the players through the game.
Mr Wayne Sutton.
Again this trip to Bathurst could not have been achieved
without the tremendous support of parents and
grandparents. Sincere thanks to them all. Special thanks
also to Lesley Sutton, our CHS Sports Coordinator, for her
help in making the trip happen.
Congratulations to, not only the girls who played in
Bathurst, but also to the other girls in the squad who
participated in earlier games - Sarah Skinner, Lizzy Hyne,
Shanyn Hammond, Kyra Pilon and Jennifer Petty.

Year 10 Child Studies
Throughout Term 1 the students have been working through the
module ‘Play and the Developing Child’. As part of the module
students have identified and participated in a range of play and
craft activities suitable for children of all ages and developmental
stages. They have made toys from toilet rolls, made a variety of
paper planes and learnt how to knit. They have also revisited
playing hop scotch, duck duck goose and what’s the time
Mr Wolf. The class also found out how to make slime, play
dough and coloured pasta. From here the challenge was set to
explore ways coloured pasta could help the development of the
child and investigate how play can support inclusion and provide
opportunities for children to build and contribute to cohesive
groups, eg promoting fairness, taking turns. The final task was for
each student to make a toy from recyclable goods and materials
and determine their sustainability and suitability for different age
and developmental levels.

Year 12 Geography Excursion
On Thursday, 24th March, the Year 12 Geography class
went on a kayaking excursion on the Clarence River Estuary
departing from the end of Shores Drive, Yamba. This was
a mandatory excursion led by Mr Crowley (teacher) and
Mr Commerford who supplied the kayaks and equipment.
During the excursion the class was shown a number of
biophysical interactions and a number of human impacts
occurring along the estuary. Mr Commerford was extremely
knowledgeable with naming local wildlife and the history of
the river and human settlement in the area. The students had
a great day and learnt much from the experience.

As a component of a Community Access Program, LS5 students
visited the local station of Fire and Rescue NSW in Maclean.
Students were provided with information from local fire fighters,
