Around the College Our Extraordinary Year Book Our Year Book has now been published and we have begun to enjoy its richness. The document is a vivid account of a wonderful year. It is a great historical text and captures our culture beautifully. It is detailed and affirming, comprehensive and touches on our unique spirit. I acknowledge the effort of Mrs Sharon Sard, the editor, and her team of support staff including Robert Cronin. Fr Frank Freeman was the Principal of St Mark’s College from 1980 to 1982. Every year we send him a copy of our Year Book. His response is printed below in a letter. Dear Greg, Warm greetings to you. The mail today brought a very wonderful surprise, namely St Mark’s College Year Book 2018. Tarnia, Lucinda and Lucy enjoying the Many thanks for sending it to me. I am most appreciative for your thoughtfulness. discovery within our Year Book How it warmed this 88 year old heart to read how wonderful the College, which was and is still so dear to me, has developed over the years. Congratulations to you and your staff. I have begun to read, and surely there will be more pleasurable readings over the coming days. Certainly a nostalgic trip down memory lane. I was indeed so happy during my all too short time in Port Pirie: a great country community to live in. I have many pleasant memories of taking over a rather tense situation at the time and working with the Good Samaritan Sisters and the Diocese to consolidate St Mark’s College. What a great groups of Sisters and dedicated women they were!! Supportive and friendly on all occasions. After, at the request of the Provincial to leave and take over Chadstone, it pained me in subsequent years to hear of the problems that arose. But thank God all that is now water well under the bridge. Now what a wonderful College St Mark’s has become! There is a note of sophistication so obvious though all the pages of the Year Book; the appealing neatness of staff and student; the very educational productiveness of so many areas of delegated responsibilities; the involvement of parents, priests and past pupils; in the celebration of the academic and cultural achievements of all students, not only the seniors, as is often the case in year books, but also the little ones from primary years. No one left out. Even grandparents are remembered and honoured. Indeed a first class production, everything a College Year Book should be. When I have finished a thoughtful reading of the same it will go into the Provincial Archives. I did recognise a few familiar faces from my time: John Mullins. Shane and Margaret Fantinel, I remember hiring them both; Robert Cronin-the book maker! Peter Munday - we worked closely setting up the woodwork area. Loving woodwork myself, I am pleased to see how that has now obtained such a high quality and standard as it is with the other educational and cultural activities. So once again, Greg, many thanks for sending me the Year Book. Congratulations once again to you and your staff on such a first class production. I close with sending you my warmest best wishes, and a prayerful remembrance, imploring the Blessings of the Lord on all who work in the educational community of St Mark’s. Frank Freeman sdb

Asking the right questions The following article is adapted from Developing Minds and asks us to consider the importance of young people sharing their experiences/feelings/thoughts as a way of generating and maintaining their own resilience. It is important that we acknowledge the impact our response has when students share these with us. Our response has the potential to support and guide them through these situations positively, however, it must also be recognised that there is potential in our response to hinder this. Developing Minds is an Adelaide based company set out to assist young people and families to support children/teens to feel calm, confident, cooperative and cope with challenges. This article challenges the way that families (and educators) react and respond in conversation with their son/ daughter (or student) and asks us to consider our ability to help young people share their anger, worry, concern, distress or any other ‘big feeling’. Visit the Developing Minds website: Has your child or teen told you about something today which made them angry, worried or upset? If you live with a “big feelings” young person, then this is probably a very regular occurrence in your life. How did you react? It’s interesting to note that we often want to “fix it fast” when we hear about problems by saying things like “you’re okay”, “don’t worry”, “calm down”, “I’ll call the school” or “let’s solve this”. There is nothing wrong with these sentences sometimes, but other times they can be less helpful. There are many other helpful things we can do when kids tell us they are upset - let’s focus on one possibility: asking more - and better - questions. There are three helpful things about asking children and young people good questions about things that have upset them. 1. We get more information which means we can better support them. 2. They get a strong message from us: we care about what is going on 3. They get a chance to practice talking about tricky stuff (and this is most important of the 3!) We know that children and teens who are good at telling people about how they feel, what happened and what they want to do are far better emotionally than young people who don’t have these skills. How do we help kids and teens get better at this? Simple, we help them practice talking about upsetting things. How do they practice it? By being asked about it.

Bosco Campus Here are a few tips for asking questions about something which has upset a young person: Act calm and relaxed while asking. While we may not feel calm on the inside, we can try and make sure we act calm on the outside. This often means we must wait long enough until we and our children/teens are BOTH feeling calm enough to be able to talk about what has happened that was upsetting. This may mean that this conversation needs to take place 30 minutes, 1 hour, a few hours or even a day or two afterwards. When inquiring about details, consider asking questions while doing something else (i.e. walking, building something, drawing/colouring, playing a card game, watching TV, driving in the car or preparing a meal). This can lower the intensity of the conversation at times. When having these conversations, it is important to show interest, care and concern but not look alarmed or overwhelmed. Remember, our kids need to feel to trust us and feel safe with us in order to find out more details about what happened and strategies that might help. Make sure the questions asked are simple rather than hard. Discussions around difficult topics may not only cause distress but may be very difficult for children to readily share details about because they are less skilled at communication and conversation skills as we are. Try and reduce the response demands by simplifying questions such as: • Scale questions. For example: On a scale of 0-10, how much does X bother you? • Using demonstration, role-play or drawing. For example: Can you show me how you felt? (asking a child to act it out or pick out a feeling face from a set of pictures or on a scale). Can you show/draw me what they did that was mean? • Using either or questions. For example: Did you feel more upset about THIS or THIS? Were you more angry OR worried? Was it THIS which happened OR this? • Or make a guess. For example: I’m wondering if you are feeling angry and sad that your friends called you that? Ask about the positives. When things are hard, it is common for kids (and us) to focus on it and talk about nothing else. This can be unhelpful for many reasons - it can further compound their distress and sense of hopelessness and get us stuck. It is really important to help children and teens ALSO talk about, be aware of and enjoy their strengths and the positive things in their lives, and the things which made the challenges easier - even if there are not very many. For example: • What is helping? • What makes it easier? • Who has been kind? • What did you do well? • What made you feel better? • What helped you cope? Question asking is a gift we give our kids Imagine a child/teen who over their entire childhood has had repeated practices saying: I felt this and this when this happened, this made it worse and better, this is what I could have done differently, this is what I wished had happened, and now I feel this. Now imagine a child/teen who over their childhood has hardly ever had a chance to do this and has had to communicate their distress without words. These will be very different children as they enter adulthood. Asking kids questions takes time, patience, empathy and the ability to tolerate pain (it’s hard to hear) but it is an incredible gift we give them. Marc Forster, Deputy Principal, Bosco Campus
