2011 Another great year in the life of St Andrews College. This SAC Year Book 2011 captures much of the adventures in learning across all learning areas including cultural and sporting pursuits. Students of St Andrews College have the best teachers you could wish. They mentor and coach our students to achieve “personal bests” and “to soar with their strengths”. As you read and relive your wonderful year at the college, spare a moment and pause to give thanks for the enormous assistance your teachers have given you. 2011 was a year the college further enhanced its learning and teaching through greater engagement and collaboration. Through this collaboration teachers fine-tuned their teaching methods for each class – “know your class”. Students learning growth continued to improve. Enjoy reading this memory of 2011 and as you do remember your peers and your shared joys together. I thank Ms Therese May, Editor in Chief, for her diligent work in bringing to life the 2011 college year. Finally, I wish each of you every Blessing for your future endeavours throughout your lives. God Bless you, Nicholas Vidot Principal 4

OUR ACADEMIC LIFE

p. 8

PRIZELIST The College annually awards prizes to students to recognise their achievements across the range of school activities. In each of Years 7 to 12, Academic Excellence awards are made to students on the basis of their assessment results over the whole year. From these, the highest-placed student is awarded the Dux prize, with a second and third place also awarded. In Years 11 and 12 different subjects are compared with each other using the same techniques used to compare subjects in the production of the Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank, in order to gain a fair comparison of the students’ performance. First Place in Course, like Academic Excellence, is awarded on the whole year’s assessment results, and is awarded to the student gaining the highest place out of all the students taking that subject, no matter how many students take the subject. Where there are several levels of a course, a trophy is also awarded in lower-level courses to the student who gains the highest place out of those doing the course only at that level. In Year 12, four of the trophies for first place in course are named for members of our school community who have passed away. School Blues are awarded to students on the basis of sporting and other representative achievements. Students may excel in a single activity or across a range of activities. Winning of age championships, leadership of a house, representation of the college, setting of records, and representation at higher levels all contribute towards the achievement of a Blue. In each of our representative sports, a “Best and Fairest” award is made to the student judged by coach, manager and team players to be most deserving of that award. A “Coach’s” award is made by the coach to the student contributing most to team spirit. The College greatly values a spirit of service among our students, and awards certificates for service to students who are involved in groups such as St Vincent de Paul, Caritas and Amnesty International; to students who serve their peers through work within the College such as acting as exam readers and writers or College events; and to students who contribute to society beyond the College. In individual subjects, certificates are also awarded in Years 11 and 12 to students who not being the top student in the course are placed in the top 10%. In Years 7-10, students who are first in their class while not being first in the whole form, or who are the most improved in their class, also receive a certificate. In Year 8 two trophies are awarded for members of our school community who passed away. The St Andrews Award and the St Andrews Ambassadors Award recognise the students who, like St Andrew, influenced others through their outstanding Catholic Christian ethic, character, leadership and virtue. They personify all the values we as a community endorse and to which we aspire. The St Andrews Award is awarded to a Year 12 student each year. The St Andrews Ambassador Award is presented to a student in Year 7 through to Year 11 each year. Personal Bests are a central value of the St Andrews College ethos. Consequently, we award Outstanding Effort certificates to students who are given the top rating for effort in all of their subjects on both reports for the year. Congratulations to each student who is acknowledged on the following pages. Be proud of your achievements, and know they are the result of your own hard work building on the gifts and graces given to you by your God, your parents and your teachers. 8
