In wisdom and love
you created our earth
to sustain us and give us life.
We turn to you now
in faith and hope,
asking you to look with favour
on our fire-ravaged and drought-stricken land,
on our starving and displaced animals,
on our failing crops and burning
farms, towns and forests.
Strengthen, sustain and give new heart
to our farmers and to all who are affected by drought,
be with those who support them.
Strengthen and comfort the victims of the fires,
those who have lost family, friends, property and stock.
Protect our volunteer firefighters and all members of essential services.
In your loving providence,
send abundant rain to quench the fires and to restore our parched earth.
God of all compassion inspire us to act
in the way of Jesus Christ your Son.
May we each be awakened to the cries of our common home.
Lord the giver of life:
Renew your people;
Renew the face of the earth.
Saint Dominic and Saint Catherine – Pray for us.
Happy New Year to all Siena families and members of the broader Siena community. Whilst very much aware of our fire ravaged land, as well as current fears regarding the coronavirus, we begin our academic year with great hope and joy. We do so as people of faith and as people who work with young people, each showing us the joy of living the precious gift of life.
Last week I was delighted to meet new Year 7 students and all Year 12 students as they returned. This week we were joined by Years 8 – 11 and I have greatly enjoyed seeing the full college community in action as classes commenced. My thanks to student leaders and staff who have warmly welcomed all new students and staff to Siena, myself included. I have discovered firsthand that Siena College is a warm and welcoming environment with a firm commitment to inclusion, truth seeking and excellence in every endeavour. So much of this has been shaped by the rich Dominican history of the College and those who have gone before us in stewardship of all that we now enjoy and carry forward. I thank Mrs Robson Garth and so many others who have led with such vision and dedication; may we who continue their work be so graced with these gifts as we begin a new chapter. This year marks the 80th anniversary of Siena College. It is a wonderful opportunity for each of us to reflect upon and learn afresh all that Siena stands for and provides for young women in a new age. I encourage all members of the community to engage with the 80th celebrations across this year.
In this first newsletter of the year, you will read of our College theme and updates relating to the commencement of Learning and Teaching programs. You will also read important information regarding possible student reaction or distress regarding the bushfire season. It is possible that some families within our community were directly affected or even distressed by images portrayed. This can adversely impact a young person’s hope and optimism for the future. Please note an inclusion in this newsletter regarding how we might each support anyone impacted at this time.
We continue to closely monitor the latest updates regarding the novel coronavirus. All correspondence will be communicated via the Parent Portal.
Staff are prepared and excited to commence the school year in support of every young woman. These opening weeks are important ones, at school and at home, in establishing positive routines and high expectations for all. Together we commence this year with great enthusiasm and firm resolve to ensure learning and growth for all, in the Dominican way.
Our College theme has at its heart this reading from the Gospel of Matthew:
Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples,
'Who do people say that the Son of Man is?'
And they said, 'Some say John the Baptist, but others Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.'
He said to them,
'But who do you say I am?'
Peter answered, 'You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.'
Saint Dominic is said to have carried the Gospel of Matthew with him as he walked the landscapes that brought him into contact with those who were marginalised – whether through circumstance or belief. As contemporary Dominicans we continue to carry on this tradition: going out to the margins and challenging the status quo by searching for truth.
The Catholic Church in Australia continues to pray for those affected by bushfires. This week staff and students at Siena used the prayer below to stand in solidarity with our sisters and brothers in need.
At an integral part of the first day of their Transition Program all Year 7 students participated in ‘Dominican Discovery’ around our College Campus. They encountered images, words and symbols that link strongly to both our Catholic tradition and our Dominican charism. With staff members on hand to ask questions and provide direction, our students experienced the ‘culture’ of Siena for the first time through Dominican eyes. A highlight of the session was meeting Daisy – our very own Dominican dalmatian!
Welcome back to the 2020 academic year and a warm welcome to all of our new students and families. I am pleased to introduce our 2020 Senior Learning Leaders:
Marissa Joyce Head of English
Laine Rice Head of Health and Physical Education
Assimina Semertjis Head of Science
Claire Al-Noah Head of the Arts and Technology
Paul Failla Head of Mathematics
Jemimah Walsh Head of Humanities
Belinda Duncan Head of Religious Education
Dean Fleischer Head of Languages
We welcome to our team:
Anita Galli Head of Senior Pathways
Anne Rice Head of Learning Diversity
As part of the Heads of Learning team, we also have:
Donna Laughlin Director of Learning and Innovation
Andrea Carter Leader of Pedagogy
Tina Di Camillo Leader of Pedagogy
You are welcome to contact any of the Senior Learning Leaders mentioned above, but as always, your first point of contact for curriculum related matters should be the subject teacher. It is essential that we continue to develop open and transparent communication and if possible, contact your daughter’s subject teacher earlier rather than later, if you perceive there to be a concern.
Year 12 students require an ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) for entry into many undergraduate-entry university programs in Australia. This year we will again run the Year 12 Learning Conversations. This program provides an opportunity for the student to share a learning conversation with a senior member of staff about their academic and personal goals, strategies that may assist in their learning and finally to develop a 2020 Action Plan with a focus on improvement. Year 12 students will also estimate an ATAR based on their Year 11 Semester Two Examination results. The Year 12 students will receive the relevant documents and an ATAR calculator program so that they can spend some time reflecting on their Year 11 achievements and prepare for their learning conversation. The focus is not so much on the estimated ATAR that they calculate but the way in which they can maximise their learning opportunities in 2020.
The Year 7 to 12 Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, 12 March and Thursday, 19 March between 4.00 pm and 7.30pm in the Latingata Morrom Gymnasium. The Parent Teacher Conferences are an important opportunity to develop a working and supportive relationship between subject teachers, parents and students. It is essential that the student attends the Parent Teacher Conferences so that they are able to share their learning experience and participate in the conversation about their subject expectations. Parents and guardians will be able to download a copy of their daughter’s Interim report prior to the Parent Teacher Conference. Further information will be provided in a later newsletter edition.
It has been lovely over the last few weeks to welcome back our students, parents and staff for 2020. We begin the new school year filled with hope and anticipation for what the future holds as we embark on the learning journey in partnership with one another. A special welcome is extended to our new families and staff who are joining us this year.
The holiday period has been like no other, and as we know, the recent bushfire season in Australia has been catastrophic. It left in its wake a tragic loss of human life, native animals, livestock as well as many homes. Families have been either exposed or affected directly or indirectly, leaving many feeling overwhelmed and devastated. During such a traumatic event, children and teenagers are the most vulnerable. It is important to understand that they may not fully comprehend what they have seen either first-hand or in the media coverage. It can make them feel sad, anxious and even stressed.
Whilst most will recover and resume normal functioning, there will be some young people that will be deeply affected and require support. I have spoken with several students who were impacted in some way by bushfires in Victoria, NSW and Queensland. No doubt this extends to many families in our community. In order to support our young people during this time, it is also important for adults to manage their own shock, grief, anxiety and anger before talking to children about this tragedy.
In a Special Report on School TV, parents and caregivers will be given some key strategies that can be implemented to support young people who feel scared or worried as a result of this traumatic event. The impact of what they have experienced or seen, even if only on TV, may be felt for some time. Please reach out to us if you have any concerns at all about your daughter’s response to this crisis. We hope you take time to reflect on the information offered in this Special Report.
Whilst there has been great devastation, we also see signs of hope as regeneration has already begun in fire affected areas. It is essential for our own wellbeing and for that of our young people that we focus on hope and remind one another that we are not alone on this journey.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13)
Today parents face a multitude of modern day challenges in raising happy, well and resilient young people. Whilst there is a great deal of information available, this can often be confusing and overwhelming for parents looking for guidance.
SchoolTV is an online resource designed to empower you as parents with credible and sound information with realistic, practical and ongoing support strategies. An excellent feature of SchoolTV is that it is available when you need to access it, in your own time. Evidence based recommendations and strategies are provided by specialists who practice in the field.
Items currently featured include:
School Transitions - To assist Year 7 parents embarking on the journey through secondary school, or even a child starting at a new school, there is no doubt that the transition is a very exciting time for students and parents. However, transitioning is an ongoing process. It can continue long after students have entered their new environment and may encounter difficulties at a number of different stages. These stressors may appear as anxiety and frustration and result in negative or disruptive behaviours. Such behaviours can become problematic making the transitioning process even more difficult for children and parents. Parents will learn practical strategies to assist your child during the transition process and reduce stress and anxiety levels.
Surviving Year 12 - The final year of secondary school is a year of hard work and a huge commitment for students. With so much going on it can be hard to find the balance between study and life. It is a time when personalities start to emerge, there are more complex interpersonal relationships and there is the pressure to perform academically. With all of this going on, it’s not surprising that some students have an emotional response and it is therefore extremely important for parents to know how to support their children during this time.
Some young people will need more support than others. Keeping the communication lines open with your child, their teachers, mentors and other parents will be crucial. Being aware of your child’s mental and physical wellbeing can play a vital role in their learning success. In this edition of SchoolTV, parents will discover practical advice for students and parents to help get through the final year of secondary school.
Parents will be notified through the newsletter when new items are available. I hope you find something worthwhile in this current series. Enjoy SchoolTV.
Our Siena College Learning Framework provides an excellent foundation for strong learning opportunities for our students. Our Learning Framework incorporates four necessary elements with the learner at the centre to ensure that every student can experience growth in their learning. Our Lesson Framework complements our learners by providing a shared understanding of the lesson structure, enabling students to effectively engage in their learning.
All classes have commenced by determining classroom expectations. These expectations are on the subject class page and provide an excellent opportunity for students and parents to revisit as required.
As part of providing a safe and collaborative learning environment, students are paired with a ‘Positive Learning Partner’ (PLP). This ensures all students engage in an environment that offers support and trust and develop skills of collaboration and respect for others.
Study is an integral aspect of the Dominican faith tradition. Home learning enables students to cement their classroom learning and identify areas for further growth. Home learning also provides an opportunity for students to play an active role in improving their understanding and for parents to work in partnership with their daughters and teachers to positively influence their daughter’s education.
Given the varying nature of subjects, home learning requirements will vary. Part of the learning process for students involves discernment and time management as they plan home learning. Subject teachers consider the suggested total guidelines and their professional judgement in determining the home learning for their individual subject. The following is a guide per year level regarding the amount of time that students should spend on home learning:
Year 7: 60-90 minutes per day, 50 minutes maximum per subject per week
Year 8: 60-90 minutes per day, 50 minutes maximum per subject per week
Year 9: 90 minutes per day, 50 minutes maximum per subject per week
Year 10: 90-120 minutes per day, 75 minutes maximum per subject per week
Year 11: 2-3 hours per day
Year 12: 3-4 hours per day
In becoming independent learners, students are encouraged to:
• Use Siena Central to access class learning and to view home learning tasks daily
• Submit work that reflects their best effort and in which they have pride
• Complete and submit all work and assessment or apply for a ‘Application for Change of Submission Date’ form (assignments and tests only) by the due date
• Establish a regular home learning routine which includes:
- Accessing Siena Central to confirm Home Learning requirements
- Home Learning/study planner
- Due date calendar
- Regular study/revision of their class work to consolidate learning
- Dedicated learning space free of distraction
- Catching up on missed class work if absent
• Seek assistance from their subject teacher to clarify understanding of learning and task
• Communicate with the subject teacher prior to task due date where a lack of understanding prevents completion of task
Parents, as the primary educators of their children, are encouraged to:
• Provide an environment conducive to effective home study
• Help their daughter balance the amount of time spent completing home learning with engagement in leisure or recreational activities
• Assist their daughter in developing a home learning/study timetable
• Encourage their daughter to set aside a regular daily session to study/revise and complete home learning and assessment tasks by the due date
• Observe and acknowledge their daughter’s success by asking how their home and class work is progressing
• Check Siena Central subject class pages regularly to monitor that home learning is being completed
• Encourage their daughter to exercise thoroughness and care in the completion of work
• Encourage their daughter to seek assistance from the teacher where lack of understanding exists
• Communicate with class teacher or Head of Student Wellbeing where appropriate
• Assist their daughter in determining responsible use of technology during Home Learning
A successful learning space should:
• Have a suitable desk and chair
• Be free of noise and distractions (such as the TV, iPhones, social media, other people, etc.)
• Be well organised, allowing easy access to resources and stationery
• Display a 2020 calendar with important dates such as due dates, assignments, key school events, etc.
• Be well lit and ventilated
The ‘Application for Change of Assessment Date’ form for tests or assignments is available on Siena Central in both the Student Zone and Parent Portal. If required, this must be submitted to the teacher prior to the due date of the task.
The Year 7 Home Learning Guidelines assist our Year 7 Students in transitioning and settling into secondary school. Home Learning will commence for Year 7 students on Monday, 24 February 2020.
To assist Year 7 Students with assessment requirements, a Year 7 Academic Calendar will be compiled and published. This will be made accessible to all students and parents in the coming weeks via Siena Central. The Academic Calendar will provide an outline of the due week for Unit Assessment and whether the task is to be completed in class or at home.
Siena Central provides the opportunity for both students and parents to engage with the classroom learning. Parents access to their daughter's subject class pages enables direct access to daily classroom learning and home learning tasks. On the class pages, parents and students can also access the Student Overview. The Student Overview outlines all unit topics and key assessment dates. A useful tool in assisting students to develop strong organisation skills.
Assessment Task Feedback is also communicated via Siena Central. Parents will receive an email alert when feedback has been uploaded. Please see the Parent User Guide available on the Parent Portal.
If you have any difficulties accessing the Parent Portal, please contact IT help at the College on 9835 0200 or email@example.com
Online Naplan test dates for Year 7 and Year 9 students are Wednesday, 13 May to Friday, 15 May. More details will be communicated later in the term.
We wish all students well in their learning endeavours in 2020.
As members of the Siena community, we are called, in the spirit of St Catherine and St Dominic to be outward focused seekers of Truth. In discovering of the Truth of our times, we should be unsettled, disturbed and moved to action.
Our current world context presents us with some unsettling Truths which provide us with the opportunity to reflect and consider how we will respond. Our Justice Education program at Siena provides students with numerous opportunities to engage with the world around them and to act in a way that reflects Gospel values and the principles of Catholic Social Teaching.
In 2020, our Senior students will once again have the opportunity to participate in the Street Retreat run by St Vincent de Paul. Each term, eight students accompanied by two members of staff, will work alongside the regular Vinnies volunteers who serve on the Soup Van providing meals for those experiencing homelessness in the city. Our students hand out toiletries donated by students and staff at the College and engage in conversations with the people they encounter. Watching students in this space is always a very rewarding and enriching experience. To see the warmth extended from our students and to see the increased ease in conversation as the night progresses is always such a gift.
This year, all students at the College will have the opportunity to contribute to Street Retreat through the donations of toiletries. Each Term, a House will be allocated and we will ask students to make donations in their House Groups. Suggestions for donations include:
Soap, body wash, deodorant, shampoo and conditioner, lip balm, baby wipes, sanitary pads, hand cream, body lotion. Donations of beanies, socks, gloves and scarves are also sought.
Term 1 – Dianella
Term 2 – Waratah
Term 3 – Cassia
Term 4 – Kurrajong
Donations will be coordinated by Hayley Di Stefano, our Leader of Social Welfare.
As in years past, Siena has support St Dominic’s Parish Vinnies Chapter by assisting with sandwich making before school, once a fortnight. Groups of eight students across all year levels are invited to volunteer in this service opportunity. Students meet at St Dominic’s Church at 7:45am each Tuesday fortnight and make sandwiches and sweet treats to accompany the Soup Van hot food items provided by Vinnies that night. Students are supervised by Siena staff at all times and return to school in time for the commencement of Period 1. Interested students should email Bronwyn Ilott at firstname.lastname@example.org with their name and year level.
Another whole school initiative we are excited to support in 2020 is the #giveagirlabook campaign. This campaign is designed to provide books to female students in Africa. All Siena students will be asked to donate a pre loved fiction or non fiction book to this cause as an act of solidarity with girls in Africa, a recognition of their own privilege in gaining an education, and an opportunity to reflect on how books can truly change the world. Students will bring in their donations in House Groups. The #giveagirlabook campaign will be launched in the first week of March, in conjunction with International Women’s Day events held throughout the College. Attendees at the International Women’s Day Breakfast are also encouraged to make a donation. Baskets for donations will be made available at the Breakfast.
For too many girls in Uganda, books are a luxury. 'Books,' they told me, 'are more than just things made of paper and ink.' To turn the pages of a book meant gaining a vocabulary. It meant mastery of the English language and that meant a job. Which meant quieting their growling stomachs and paying for their siblings to stay in school.

Siena students are fortunate to have the opportunity to participate in two Immersion experiences in 2020. Nine Year 11 students are currently preparing to visit Tsakane, South Africa, at the end of Term 1. The students will be staying in households hosted by women from the Kopanang Project and as such, will experience what it is like to live in conditions very different to their own homes. During their time in Tsakane, the students contribute to the community through volunteering in the Community Creche, preparing meals for children who access the services of a Community based food program, tutoring local children and working alongside the women of Kopanang to teach basic skills in computer literacy. Our students visit historical sites in Johannesburg and learn about South Africa’s past and the stories of the people.
To prepare for the experience, our students undergo a series of workshops throughout Term 1. This year, our students are privileged to be working with Suzy Zail, author of the YA Fiction Novel I am Change. Suzy will be sharing with our students her experiences of time spent with young girls in Uganda. It is envisaged that this will assist our students in considering the challenges to education faced by girls in Africa. Sr Sheila Flynn will also be working closely with the students to educate them and prepare their hearts and minds for the journey.
This year we are very excited to offer an Immersion to Arnhem Land to students in Years 9, 10, and 11. We are working alongside the company Red Earth to develop a program that will meet the needs of our students and adequately prepare them for the rich experience this destination offers to learn from our original and traditional land owners. The immersion will take place from 12-20 September (Term 3) and is open to any student in Years 9, 10 or 11. This year we are able to open up this experience to twenty five students. Students will be accompanied by Siena staff members and staff from Red Earth. A parent Information Session will be held at the College on Wednesday 4 March at 6.00pm for any interested parents.
Our Immersion programs provide Siena students with unique and privileged opportunities to enter into new landscapes and be amongst the people of these places. Through these rich experiences, students gain new perspectives and grow in their understanding of what it means to be a member of a global family and what it means to be Truth seekers in our contemporary context.
Please contact Bronwyn Ilott email@example.com should you have any questions regarding Siena’s Immersion program.
We began the year with one hundred and thirty Year 7 students completing a two day Transition Program before all the other students returned to the College. This included various activities to ensure that our Year 7 students feel connected, confident and safe in their new learning environment, in order to help them maximise their learning opportunities.
Our Year 7s spent their first morning getting to know their House Group Teachers, who carefully introduced them to the structure of a school day at Siena. Using games and circle time activities, the girls began to get to know one another. At lunchtime the girls were met by our Student Leadership Team who enjoyed sharing their stories of their first days at school and were able to answer questions the Year 7 students may have had. In the afternoon the Year 7s participated in a Dominican Discovery, a program designed to introduce students to the key principles and people of the Dominican faith in which we learn.
The second day provided an opportunity for the Year 7s to meet some of their classroom teachers and participate in a variety of learning activities in different areas of the College. The girls were introduced to the Science laboratories and conducted their first practical activity, participated in a creative lesson with Visual Arts staff and explored the many different musical instruments made available to them through the Instrumental Music Program.
We wish each of our Year 7 students a positive start to their learning journey at Siena College.
Feedback on the Transition Program is most welcome from parents and may be emailed to:firstname.lastname@example.org
Every year the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority arrange a series of Top Class concerts that feature VCE students who have been awarded excellence in the Arts.
It is with great pleasure that we congratulate Teagan Matthews who has been awarded Top Class Drama honours in recognition of her outstanding solo performance that she devised for her Drama Performance Examination in 2019. Teagan will perform at the Arts Centre on Monday, 16 March.
Teagan worked with determination throughout the playmaking process to research, write, direct and perform an original and creative seven minute solo based on the character of The Gothic Spirit. This character stemmed from the works of famous gothic writers Mary Shelley and Lord Byron and incorporated clever use of symbolic and dramatic metaphors that were embedded throughout. Teagan’s ability to create diverse and interesting characters, together with her performance skills to transform characters, time and place, featured heavily in her work and resulted in a highly engaging performance. We take this opportunity to congratulate Teagan and wish her well as she prepares for the VCE Season of Excellence Concert.
Congratulations to Monica Jagic (Class of 2019) whose VCE Studio Arts project, a digital animation entitled ‘Sure Thing’, has been accepted into the Top Arts exhibition for 2020. A special mention to Olivia Graham (Class of 2019) whose photographic work was shortlisted for this event. The Top Arts exhibition will run from Friday, 13 March to Sunday, 19 July at the National Gallery of Victoria.
We extend a warm welcome to you and your daughter to join us at our Open Evening and Twilight Fair on Tuesday, 3 March. There will be a rolling program of events, student led tours and interactive faculty displays from 4.00pm until 8.00pm.
Bring a picnic (please note no BYO alcohol) or grab an easy dinner from the food trucks and enjoy the live concert from our wonderful talented music ensembles. We also invite you to meet our principal, Mrs Elizabeth Hanney, who will present in the St Catherine’s Centre auditorium at 6.30pm.

To reflect our concern for and desire to care for our Common Home, all students are encouraged to embrace Siena’s Nude Food initiative. Students are asked to use containers and other alternatives to single use plastic to transport their food from home. We are hoping to greatly reduce litter around the College and lessen the impact on our environment through embracing more sustainable options.
'Nude food uses less rubbish and energy. It helps decrease landfill because we are using reusable containers, not wrappers and cartons. Nude food also saves energy because we don’t buy the little containers, so less energy is used making the big containers.'
Reducing the use of packaging can also be good for wildlife. Many native animals eat plastic rubbish and packaging because they believe it to be food. National Geographic also noted the importance of solving the problem of debris pollution. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch – a collection of debris and microplastics that spans a vast area of the Pacific Ocean – is a known problem for marine life. Fish and algae consume the plastic debris, which can lead to death in individual creatures and create great problems within the ecosystem.
Additionally, Nude food saves money because if you buy a larger tub of yoghurt and put it in containers it is cheaper than buying lots of little tubs of yoghurt. It also saves money because the price of buying a nude food lunchbox is less than buying all the small packages for a week of school.'
Our Siena College 80th Anniversary Celebrations will commence on Wednesday, 29 April 2020. We will celebrate Mass at 10.30am at St Patrick’s Cathedral followed by the Alumnae lunch at the Park Hyatt at 12.00 noon. The cost of the lunch is $100 per head for two courses and a variety of beverages.
A bus will be available for those guests who would like to attend the Mass and lunch. The bus will depart Siena at 8.45am for St Patrick’s Cathedral, and following the lunch will depart the Park Hyatt at 2.30pm for an expected arrival back to the College by 3.30pm. There will be no charge for the bus.
Further details are available via the following TryBooking links:
We warmly welcome all members of our Siena College community, past, present and future, to join us in celebrating our 80th Anniversary.
Please direct any queries to Liz Merrett at email@example.com or 03 9835 0217.
