Week 5 Term 4 — 12 November 2018


Special thanks this week to:

 Janelle and Sheridan for the organisation of the Year 12 Formal. I also need to acknowledge
Jasmine for going above and beyond with special trips to pick up formal accessories.
 Jasmine (she has had a big week) for her leadership of our school as we have navigated our way
through HR SAP. Outstanding!
 SAS team for Year 12 sign out. A huge job!
 David Robinson for going above and beyond for his trip with Lynton and Yuin to their two day
 All the staff/students that supported the Aboriginal Education Sessions. Our school was very
fortunate to have Peter Dawe and Terry Crawford share their amazing knowledge about our
Aboriginal Culture and Indigenous flora and fauna.
 WHS and timetable team for their ongoing work.
 The staff who showed real generosity at a time that others needed it.

Hello all,

Wow week 5 already!! This term continues to fly along. I have started to develop a twitch when I see
Christmas decorations at the shops. I’m so not ready for Christmas!!


This week Wednesday 14th is set down for Scripture seminars. This is the last one of the year. Years 7
and 8 will be at 11am, Year 9 and 10 will be at 12:15pm. Students who do not attend religious education
are able to do private study or reading. Thank you in advance to Judy for her organisation.

Week 5

I will be at Berry Street training on Thursday and Friday, thank you to Imelda for stepping in during my
absence. I am also really looking forward to the formal on Thursday evening. Thank you to Janelle and
Sheridan for their efforts in planning the formal, I am certain it will be a lovely evening.

Just a note: I am constantly amazed at the zealous hard work that staff put in at this school. The fresh
ideas, enthusiasm and always, always looking for ways to make this school amazing for our students. I
don’t want to single any one person out; however, I do thank each of you for what you do on a daily

A short one from me,

Have a great week.

Heather 

Hi All,

I hope you have a great week this week. I would like to thank all of your continued support of me in my
role. I would particularly like to thank staff for their kind words of encouragement.

I would like to remind all staff to please continue to reinforce with students our mobile phone rules. Also a
reminder to staff if you could please continue to follow up with the procedures for truancy - as we have
had a couple of incidents of late.

I would like to thank the Pillar Teams for their excellent work throughout the Year – Well done to you all. If
I could please have the sheets completed and returned to me by the end of the week that would be

I look forward to meeting with Head Teacher colleagues this term. I recently spoke to a Head Teacher who
said that he received some very pleasing feedback from a year 12 students in regards to how well he had
handled a complex situation years before. I think this highlights how as teachers we set examples for
students in ways we are not even aware of. I encourage you all to continue to set good examples as
ethical instructional leaders.

Excellence in Teaching

I would like to acknowledge Sam Bell for great classroom teaching and as the top1%er for this week. Well
done Sam!

Enjoy the week!

Year 8 uniform checks

I have been able to make contact again with a few students and their parents in regards to their non-
compliance with uniform. In circumstances of financial hardship we are working to support the family. In
other instances where students are still choosing to come out of uniform despite parents sorting out
uniform etc. detention processes will be followed.

We have run a few after school detentions over the year, albeit not enough but they are very effective in
getting the message across to students. Those who have had a detention learn the process quickly. I will
endeavour to log as much of this as possible onto Sentral to ensure roll call teachers etc are aware of
steps taken.

Thanks again for monitoring this and for roll call teachers flagging concerns.

Pillar Team meetings

Thanks for everyone’s participation in these meetings and the processes of evaluation you have
undertaken. It was a pleasure to catch with all the teams and reflect on the year’s progression. Some
great ideas on moving forward and possible milestones for next year were shared. These will definitely
form part of our Executive planning on November 28.

If Head Teachers who ran those meetings could ensure I receive the A3 sheets back this week- that would
be much appreciated.

Thanks to the Year Advisors and Assistant Year Advisors

Thanks to Carol Fong and Vivian Kha for their outstanding support of students. Just as dedicated Luke
Deakin and Rhonda Mitric; who have been deep in planning with Troy Neale for the next Year meeting.
Some great ideas and suggestions for next year are being worked through. Members of the Welfare team
will be engaging in professional learning to support these 2019 initiatives over weeks 4, 5 and 6. Thanks
for your dedication in completing this training Year Advisors. To all staff if something does arise and the
Year Advisor is out on professional you can always approach the Assistant Year Advisor.

Special Provisions/ Student paperwork

Just a reminder to all teachers that if a student mentions that they may require adjustments or special
provisions for any assessments or examinations this should be directed to Imelda Judge in the first
instance. The documentation and communication of this support needs to be coordinated through
Learning Support which is supervised by Imelda. This process needs to be tight and conversations with
the parents or the students need to be very clear, particularly with regards to what support can be

Have a great week every one 
