It was wonderful to see our Year 9 and 10 students performing George Orwell’s Animal Farm
in the Wheelton Amphitheatre last night. There was a real picnic atmosphere as families sat
on their cushions, rugs and even bean bags! The students embraced their roles vigorously and
exploited the opportunities provided by the outdoor venue to great effect. Congratulations
to Mr Sam Gough, who directed the show, and to his team of designers and technicians for
presenting such an imaginative version of this well-known parable. Congratulations also to the
cast and crew for their performances and for creating such an entertaining piece of theatre.
There are two more shows – tonight and tomorrow night, so if you have not already booked a
ticket try to get along to see the show.

Last week we congratulated Leon Fei (Year 5) for winning first place in The American Protégé
International Piano and Strings Competition 2015, and also for winning the special Judges
Distinction Award for best performance in the competition. At yesterday’s Assembly we were
lucky enough to have Leon perform the ‘First Movement of Winter’ from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons
for us. He played magnificently and received a very warm ovation from the School. We look
forward to hearing Leon play on many more occasions in the years ahead.

AGSV Table Tennis
As mentioned in the Sport Report later in this Bulletin, CGS played against PEGS in the AGSV
Table Tennis Final. The match was a fantastic showcase of table tennis, played at the highest
level and in a wonderful spirit. The determination to not give in was perhaps the ultimate
difference in many close rubbers. The final score - CGS 8 rubbers, 32 games defeated PEGS
7 rubbers, 31 games. The team was led gallantly by their Captain, Augustine Nguyen, who
managed to come back from 6–10 to win 12–10 and clinch a crucial rubber against Martin Lau,
the Captain of PEGS. Congratulations to each and every member of the team and squad on
such a successful season. Augustine was proud to present the Premiership trophy to the School
at yesterday’s Assembly.

The CGS First Badminton Squad successfully retained its title as the AGSV’s premiership
Badminton Team, winning the championship for the 15th time. The Camberwell side consisting
of Felix Wang (Year 10), Shawn Li (Year 12), Conrad So (Year 11), Alex Chen (Year 10),
Steven Guo (Year 11) and newbie Kevin Yu (Year 11) had to overcome formidable opposition
from PEGS. The final started off with four singles games, followed by two doubles matches.
The whole morning was played with a very high level of intensity but, in the end, Camberwell
managed to prevail over the PEGS opposition.
This impressive victory complemented the Squad’s undefeated record for the season. Felix also
presented the Premiership Cup to the School at Assembly.

Curriculum Information Evening
It was great to see so many parents here for the Curriculum Information Evening on Tuesday.
The night provided us with an excellent opportunity to share our curriculum priorities, such as
the ongoing roll out of the Australian Curriculum, the School’s development of our Schoology
site, the trial of the Maths Pathway Program in Year 6 and our system of assigning grades. It also
allowed us to hear from parents on a range of matters relating to their sons’ learning, including
homework and the use of technology in the classroom. As I mentioned at the commencement
of the night, we are looking forward to welcoming Dr Craig Hassed, a former Camberwell
Grammar student and a world leader in mindfulness, to the School next term. Craig will be
running a session for the boys and he will be our guest speaker at the William Angliss Dinner
on Tuesday 12 May. Details about this special night will be sent out next term.
We have also formed a relationship with Swinburne University and we are looking to implement
an Emotional Intelligence Program, aimed at Year 8. I feel that both of these areas will further
enhance the boys’ learning and overall sense of wellbeing. I will look forward to sharing more
information on these exciting initiatives next term.
My thanks to Mr Scott Wyatt, Middle School Deputy Head, for putting together such an
informative and thorough presentation, and to Mr Mark Dowley and Mr Mark Mews for their
input on the night.
Year 6 and 11 Parent/Teacher Nights
Thank you to the Year 6 parents who attended the Parent/Teacher evening on Wednesday.
I know that the time allocated for each appointment is brief, so please contact any of your
son’s teachers if you would like to follow up on any of the matters discussed. We now turn
our attention to the Year 8 Night, which will be held in the Wheelton Centre next Wednesday.
Online bookings are available for our Year 8 parents until Tuesday afternoon.
Easter Service
I extend a warm welcome to parents and family members to next Wednesday’s Easter Service
at St Mark’s. The service will commence at 9.30am.
End of Term
It is difficult to believe that we only have one week to go! Our term will conclude next Friday
at 3.20pm following a final Middle School Assembly.

Junior School
At this week’s Assembly all Year 5 boys were presented with their leadership badges, reminding
them of their position as the Senior Junior School class and the associated responsibilities and
expectations. In his address to the Junior School Assembly, Dr Paul Hicks reminded boys that
the true purpose of leadership was serving others. In our school we regularly have examples
of boys doing the right thing just to do the right thing and not because it will earn them
recognition or kudos. Our Year 5 boys set the tone and the standard through their words and
deeds. We wish them every success in their endeavours and look forward to seeing them
aspire to the highest standards.
Easter Service
During last week’s Assembly the 14 boys nominated to stand for election to the Year 5 Executive
Council presented themselves and their ideas to the boys from Years 3 to 5. Their presentations
were superb! The boys had clearly given a great deal of thought to the idea of leadership and
how they personally could contribute to enhancing the life of the School and the experience of
their school mates. I am sure the parents who were there were very proud of their sons, just
as I was.
The nominees were: Nicolaas Bray, Aneek Sengupta, Evan Chiu, Leon Fei, Brendan Tse, Gregory
Kerdemelidis, Keith Ng , Mathieu Ly, Zach Kyriakos, Alexander Newman-Thurlby, Maclane Cross,
James Eastwood, Samuel Betts and Michael Alexander.
From the 14 boys nominated to stand for election to the Year 5 Executive Council, eight were
elected. All nominated boys are congratulated for their nomination and recognition as leaders
by their peers, and the Executive Council was introduced and invested with their badge of
office: Nicolaas Bray, Evan Chiu, Leon Fei, Keith Ng, Mathieu Ly, Aneek Sengupta, Brendan Tse
and Gregory Kerdemelidis.
I will be asking our Junior School Leaders to make a difference; to provide guidance,
encouragement and energy so that our school is a better place because of their leadership and
example. I wish them every success and I look forward to working closely with them in the
months ahead.

What an amazing way to finish the Summer Season. Firsts Badminton and Table Tennis Teams
both won their respective AGSV Premiership Competitions whilst Lawn Bowls and Triathlon Teams
have their finals in the coming days. Table tennis was one of the most enthralling finals I have
ever seen; 11 all in the final set of the match with the score locked at seven Rubbers a piece
and two games a piece, Captain Augy Nguyen (Year 12) and Jonathan Geddes (Year 11) then
won the next two points to win the match and the Premiership. Well done also to Mr Stephen
Smith for his nerves of steel in what was a very tense encounter. A more detailed evaluation
of Summer Sport will be outlined in next week’s Bulletin.
Summer Sport has concluded now and Winter Sport will commence as of the first Wednesday
of next term (15 April). Please check the CGS App for further information in regards to team
lists and training schedules. Also email me with any concerns or questions you might have
about Winter Sport on [email protected]
Good luck to Mr Hamish Meachem and the swimming squad at the AGSV Finals on tonight at
MSAC.
Sport Report
The final round of Summer Sport saw both the Badminton and Table Tennis Teams win their
respective Final and attain silverware.
Camberwell’s First Table Tennis Team played PEGS, looking to win their sixth premiership in
seven years. Trailing two games to love, Joe Chen (Year 9) excelled to win his singles rubber
in five games, with Camberwell winning four of the possible six rubbers in the first round
of matches. The reverse singles saw the honours tied, both teams winning three rubbers.
Heading into the seeded pair matches, Camberwell was up seven rubbers to five. With the first
two seeded pairs going down to PEGS, the premiership came down to the success or otherwise
of the first seeded pair of Jonathon Geddes (Year 11) and Augustine Nguyen (Year 12). With
two games each the last game was a tight and thrilling affair, but a late burst of skill and focus
saw the pair take the final rubber to ensure a Camberwell victory.
The First Badminton Team won their 14th premiership in the 25 years of the sport in AGSV.
Cruising to victory over PEGS, winning six rubbers to love, standout players included
Shawn Li (Year 12) and Steven Guo (Year 11), who both won in tight matches, and
Felix Wang (Year 10), Captain of the side.
The 10A Basketball Team won their fifth consecutive match in a close fought battle with
Peninsula. Poor discipline in the first half was the topic of a rousing speech from Mr Hone the team soon responded, leaving the opposition in their wake as an impressive match from
Will Kruyt (Year 10) and Je-Rome Cheong (Year 10) led the side to a 29-26 point victory.
The First XI Cricket Team defeated Mentone in the 20/20 round. The last game for almost half
the team saw a shake-up in the batting order as Camberwell were sent in to bat. Two early
wickets saw Lachie Powell (Year 11) arrive at the crease in only the fourth over and the innings
in the balance. Lachlan scored a composed but suitably rapid innings, to amass 55 not out,
Camberwell scoring 3/140 off their 20 overs. In reply, Mentone got off to a quick start, before
Lachlan again stepped in, taking 3/30 off his four overs, including bowling two key death overs.
Once again a composed spell from the ever-improving Michael Liu (Year 11) saw Camberwell
home, winning by five runs.
The Second XI Cricket played Peninsula, at Deepdene Oval. Camberwell lost the toss and were
sent in to bat. Brothers, Will (Year 11) and Jack Dalrymple (Year 12) opened the batting and
made a strong start, scoring 72 and 45 respectively, and Camberwell finishing with 158 from
their 20 overs. Mitchell Linley (Year 12) opened the bowling and picked up an early wicket, with
Rohan Chitale (Year 10) bowling tightly towards the end to secure Camberwell a five run win.

Assembly Performance
Finally, despite calls for Play of the Week to be awarded to the very modest but theatrically
robust debater Farouk Al-Salihi (Year 12), the award must go to John Kypuros (Year 12) for
the demolition of his opponent in Second’s Volleyball. At match point for Camberwell, John
managed to retrieve a shot, with his foot, kicking the ball, crisply, into the opponent’s corner
and thus winning the match. An incredible piece of skill, and worthy recipient of Play of the
Week.

News from Monash University
 Comprehensive Courses vs. Specialist Courses
Deciding on a course is so much more than choosing a discipline to study. Students have to
weigh up considerations such as where to study, as well as how to study. The question of
how to study can be particularly complex, as it depends on whether the student wants to
keep their options open, or is ready to commit to a specialised area for the entirety of their
degree.
Monash has grouped their courses into two ways of studying: Monash comprehensive
courses, and Monash specialist courses.
Monash comprehensive courses are suitable for students who:



Want to keep their study and graduate options open
See university as an opportunity to try new things
Need some time to discover and define their interests
Comprehensive courses offer a wide range of majors within a field, and students can start
their course knowing what they want to major in, or spend up to a year figuring it out.
Another benefit of comprehensive courses is that they all contain elective units that can be
studied either within or outside of their chosen field (i.e. from a different faculty).
Monash comprehensive courses are: Bachelor degrees in Arts, Business, Commerce,
Information Technology, and Science.
Monash specialist courses are most appropriate for students who:


Are confident about what they want to study
Know what they want to “be” upon graduation
Specialist courses allow students to study their chosen discipline from day one. Upon
completion, many of these courses will provide students with the accreditation they require
for professional practice.
Monash Specialist courses include: Bachelor degrees in Engineering, Teaching, Nursing,
Law and Medicine.
Double degrees -should be considered for students who:
Have a diverse range of interests and don’t want to give anything up
Are time conscious – want to qualify in two separate disciplines in the shortest period
of time
 Want to double their vocational opportunities upon graduation


Double degrees allow students to study for two degrees at the same time. The double
degree offerings span the comprehensive and specialist courses; degrees can be comprised
of two comprehensive courses, two specialist courses, or one comprehensive and one
specialist course.
For further information about Monash comprehensive and specialist courses, watch this
YouTube video - Monash Comprehensive & Monash Specialist
 New Bachelor of Health Science
The Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences has a suite of specialist courses that
allow students to start their destination area of study from day one of university. As part of
this suite, Monash is now offering the new Bachelor of Health Sciences degree (3 years),
which allows students to specialise in one of the following four areas:




Public Health
Human Services
Emergency Health and Paramedic Practice
Radiation Sciences
Students who complete the Bachelor of Health Sciences will be eligible for a range of
Masters by Coursework degrees no longer than 1.5 years in length, including the Master of
Public Health, and Master of Medical Radiations (Radiation Therapy).
For further information about the new Bachelor of Health Sciences, students are
encouraged to attend the ‘At Monash’ Health Science seminar on Tuesday 19 May at
Monash Clayton. Registrations are essential at At Monash Seminar Series
Careers in Criminology
Many students consider a career in the legal industry yet only know about being a lawyer or
judge. Many have heard of, but do not know, what a criminologist does.
According to the Job Guide, criminologists examine the systems by which people accused
of crimes are brought to justice, attempt to explain the reasons for criminal behaviour and
suggest ways crime might be reduced.
Criminologists may specialise in organisational research, victimology, corporate crime, adult
corrections and/or juvenile justice. They may work in the legal field, in the
social/psychological fields, which study the effects of the criminal justice system or the
factors which contribute to offending behaviour by individuals.
So, what type of person becomes a criminologist?





Someone who has analytical ability
Someone with personal integrity
Someone interested in welfare and human behaviour
Someone interested in working with disadvantaged groups

The Fun and Famous Falls Creek Snowsports Family Week
Monday 6 July to Friday 10 July (or Sunday 12 July, see below)
Fantastic value for families and friends. Children’s Lift and Lesson Packages can be organised for both
skiing and snowboarding at significantly reduced prices. This year, for the first time, Adult
Packages will also be available, but will be limited, details to follow in the an information
email, to receive this email an “expression of interest” needs to be made, please see below.
This popular week will once again take place in the second week of the July school holidays at Falls
Creek, the most reliable Victorian snow resort. It is open to all CGS families and their friends. Your
actual involvement in lessons and activities can be as little or as much as your family desires, but
regardless of your involvement significant savings can be had. The week’s tuition is conducted by the
Falls Creek Snowsports School. Some enjoyable social activities will also be happening for those who
wish to attend. Non-CGS families are most welcome to participate.
Lift and Lesson Packages
The lift and lesson package option usually follows the following format: Monday to Friday: A 1.5 to
2-hour lesson per day and a five day lift ticket. The cost of a five-day primary lift and lesson package
will be $230 per student. The cost of a five-day secondary lift and lesson package will be $322 per
student. The normal cost to the public for a child (6 to 14 years old) lift and lesson package is $478 and
for a youth (15 to 18 years old) it is $642. These primary and secondary packages being offered
constitute a significant saving – even the cost of a child five day lift pass ($234) with no lessons and
youth five day lift pass ($398) with no lessons is more expensive than the CGS primary and secondary
lift and lesson offers. There will be seven day options available as well, please see below.
Accommodation/Supervision
Please note that students need to be accommodated with and be under the supervision of at least one
parent, friend or guardian during the week. Accommodation needs to be individually organised by
families attending and it is very much advisable to do this soon. Booking options are provided below.
Please note that the cost varies widely depending on whether you want budget lodge style, through
self-catered apartments to premium accommodation.
The options are an accommodation service called Mountain Multiservice:

Further Information
The race trials event for CGS Snowsports team selection for the Victorian Interschools Snowsports
Championships will once again be held at Falls Creek on the weekend immediately following Family
Week ie. Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 July. If your son is going to be a member of the CGS Snowsports
team this year and you will be attending Family Week in the week prior, then you will need to consider
this when making your accommodation booking ie. you will need to book for this weekend as well as
the 5 days. Consequently, great value 7 day lift and lesson packages will also be available in addition to
the original 5 day option. Alternatively, if you are not going to be part of the CGS Snowsports team this
year and you wish to stay for the weekend, you are also welcome to take advantage of the lift and
lesson package for the extra 2 days, and then on the Sunday your family may choose to participate in
some fun racing activities that will be organised in conjunction with the race trials.

Avan Yu Winner 2012 Sydney International Piano Competition Avan Yu, the winner of the 2012 Sydney International Piano Competition is returning to Camberwell Grammar School. He will be presenting a short recital for all music students, followed by a Q&A. This event will be held during Periods 4 and 5 on Monday 4 May (Term 2, week 4) in the Rehearsal Room of the Mallinson Music School. Many students may already be familiar with Avan, from the recitals he gave at Camberwell Grammar in 2012 and 2014. This incursion will offer not only the chance to hear another performance from this world-­‐class pianist but also allow students the opportunity to talk to and interact with Avan. Attendance is strongly recommended for any boy who learns the piano either at school or externally. If your son would like to attend, please complete the form below and return no later than Friday 17 April to Mr Greg Roberts or the Music School Office. ___________________________________________________________ I would like my son to attend the Avan Yu incursion on Monday May 4. Son’s name: ___________________________________ Year : _______ Signature: _____________________________________ News from the farm
There are few more important dates on the farming calendar
than the timing of the 'Autumn break' - that is, when the rains
of Autumn break the dry of Summer. This kicks along grass
growth at Kangaroobie and starts grass growth for Mark and
Karlie's lambs.
At Kangaroobie, the key date is St Patrick's Day, 'If it doesn't
rain before St Patrick's Day then it will be a tough Autumn
and Winter' goes the local saying. Well, it waited until the last
minute but, almost on cue, on 17 March we had some much
needed rain and, if the saying is true, we should be well set
for the next two seasons. At Mark and Karlie's, the key date
is Anzac Day so we'll wait to see how they go.
Our calving this year has gone very well, with most of the
cows calving happily by themselves and only a few needing
assistance. Luckily for some groups of visiting students (or
unluckily depending on how yucky they found it), they were
able to help pull a couple of calves out. There was much
excitement and education.
And finally, we have been impressed with the increasing
level of knowledge and interest about the difference between
grass-fed and grain-fed meat over the last couple of weeks.
It is becoming clear that nearly all supermarket meat spends
a lot of time in a small pen being fed a high grain diet –
certainly not our idea of happy animals. The difference
shows through in the taste of the meat (as you keep telling
us), and in things you can’t feel and taste like the greater
proportion of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids and higher levels
of antioxidants. So, thank you, for caring about how your
meat is grown.
