Dinosaurs alive during National Parks Week celebrations

It’s National Parks Week from 4 to 12 March and the City of Armadale is celebrating by enlisting the help of a host of mythical and prehistoric creatures to entice digital natives into the great outdoors.

Download the app Magical Park for your Android or Apple devices and when you visit the Armadale City Centre during the week, drop into Memorial Park to collect dinosaur eggs and run from dinosaurs or walk through a fantasy land of fairies and unicorns to locate lost kittens.

Available until 20 March, Magical Park will transform selected City parks into a digital fantasy land, creating a virtual world seen through the app once you enter the boundaries of the park.

The Magical Park app will also be available at Rushton Park in Kelmscott and the Harrisdale Playing Fields, allowing kids to run free and delve into a little augmented reality.

While still a digital app, it is a fantastic opportunity to get the kids motivated and off the couch and moving outdoors to burn up some energy and enjoy a few of the City’s 795 reserves and 74 playgrounds.

Family favourites at Movies in the Park

Enjoy a relaxing outdoor cinema experience with friends and family at Movies in the Park, proudly presented by the City of Armadale.

Bring a picnic rug and hamper to start these perfect autumn evenings outdoors in the fresh air and natural beauty of some of the City’s most picturesque parks.

Friday 10 March – Rushton Park: Jungle Book
Friday 24 March – Reg Williams Reserve: Finding Dory
Friday 7 April – William Skeet Oval: Kung Fu Panda

Check the City’s website for all session times and details.

Last swim before upgrade

On the eve of the much-awaited $26 million upgrade of the Armadale Aquatic Centre, a final swim will be held on Saturday, April 8 before the centre closes its doors.

All past and current users of the centre are invited to attend the closing celebrations from 11am to 2.30pm.

Refreshments and entertainment will be available, before the Mayor officially closes the Centre, signalling a new era for the important community facility.

 

The Great Cocky Count

Registrations for the 2017 Great Cocky Count on Sunday 9 April, are now open.

The City is encouraging residents to join in the biggest annual survey and monitor a site to assist with the annual count.

Volunteers monitor known roost sites to count the cockatoos as they come into their evening roosts
on a single night.

In Perth, the count takes place every April at sunset, usually between 5.30 and 6.30pm, to record sightings of white-tailed and red-tailed black cockatoos.

For more information or to find out about a roost site, contact 9387 2251 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Registrations close by Sunday 19 March.

Focus on the corner store

Traditional, stand-alone shops were once the cornerstone of the community in the days before major malls and shopping centres.

There was always a friendly local deli nearby. Some still exist.

Grab your camera and snap some pics of your local shop or favourite family-run store and enter the 2017 Focus Photography Competition for a chance to win $500.

The competition closes 31 March. Visit the library website here for full details and terms and conditions.

Primary Swimming Carnivals  
Thank you to all parents for braving the warm weather and joining us for another wonderful swimming carnival. The House Spirit was fantastic and all students had a most enjoyable carnival. Thank you to Primary Physical Education Co-ordinator Mel Fowler for organising this event. Yesterday the JWACS Inter-School swimming team performed admirably at Wesley College. Many of our students placed in their events in what seemed to be one of our most successful carnivals. At Assembly this morning I acknowledged the fine effort of Jacob Hale in Year 6, who won two events; the butterfly and freestyle. For the freestyle Jacob created a new inter-school record, with a time of 32.18 seconds for the 50 metres. This is a great achievement; well done, Jacob! I also recognised the bravery of Megan Gray for swimming extremely well while in some physical discomfort and the determination of Emily Beaman, who volunteered to replace an injured team member in extra events. We do care for each other at John Wollaston! Well done to all students who competed at both swimming carnivals.

Buddy Classes
Last Friday 3 March we had our first ‘Buddy Class’ session as part of our Friday Connections programme. This involved all the students being ‘buddied’ up with students in another year level. It was wonderful to walk around the School and see the positive interactions between the students of different ages. Year 4 and 5 students were helping the Year 1 students with their science experiments, the Dingoes were teaching the Possums how to play Numero and the Quokka and Kookaburra classes worked together to make origami girls to acknowledge and celebrate Girl’s Day in Japan. Friday Connections are all about giving our students the opportunity to connect with a variety of different people throughout the School. This includes connecting through Choir, House Spirit and Buddy Classes.

Healthy Drinking
With the recent hot weather, it has been important to make sure that everyone at School has been well hydrated. Students are encouraged to have sips from their water bottles at regular intervals throughout the day.

So what drinks should you provide as part of a healthy lunchbox? The Live Lighter programme supported by the Heart Foundation and Cancer Council, along with the WA School Canteen Association recommend that all children have a water bottle at school each day as part of their healthy lunchbox. You may also like to include a small plain milk drink.

Please save fruit juices, juice boxes and flavoured milks for treats at home as they are often very high in sugar. For more information on healthy eating at school please go to www.livelighter.com.au. You may like to try out the delicious pizza scroll recipe!

Harmony Day
A Taste of Harmony
This year we are celebrating Harmony Day on Tuesday 21 March. Students have the opportunity to dress up in clothing representative of their nationality and contribute tasty cultural food for a Lightning Lunch. As our school community grows in diversity, we are keen to extend the spirit of harmony to our parent body. Some of our parents have kindly volunteered to teach other parents how to cook a traditional dish from their culture. These are the available choices on the day:

  • Chinese wonton
  • Italian pizza
  • Chicken curry from India
  • ANZAC biscuits
  • A Japanese speciality

Classes will take place in the Technology Centre from 11.00am to 1.30pm ending with a shared lunch where parents can mingle and taste all the different foods. If you would like to sign up for one of these classes, please contact Primary Receptionist, Donna Brown at This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Year 12 Ball held at the Parmelia Hilton on Friday 24 February truly was ‘A Night Under the Stars’ with all attendees beautifully presented and behaved. Congratulations to the Student Prefects for their work with Deputy Principal Pastoral Care, Nick Jones ensuring the evening went smoothly. After being presented to the Principal, students and their guests were served mocktails, followed by a delicious buffet meal. The DJ then livened up proceedings with some great dance music. Belle and Beau of the Ball, Hannah Watts and Ronan Marc-Cowley were presented with their sashes and took a turn around the dance floor, to great applause from their peers. All students should now have the login details to access photos of this memorable event; these can be obtained from Mr Jones if anyone has missed out.

Secondary Inter-House Swimming Carnival
Congratulations to everyone who participated in or assisted with the Secondary Inter-House Swimming Carnival on Thursday 2 March. Although it was very humid with grey skies overhead, the storms stayed away and everyone had an enjoyable and successful day. Thank you to Head of Health and Physical Education, Lonneke Holleman and the HPE Department staff for all their work leading up to and on, the big day. A huge thanks also, to all parent volunteers and helpers who help make these important school events the success they are. The ACC Inter-School Swimming Carnival will be held on Tuesday 14 March at HBF Stadium. Successful student participants will have received more information about this event from Miss Dunn.

SEQTA Primary Welcome and Secondary Update
It was my very great pleasure to speak to a number of primary parents this week, giving them an overview of our Community Portal, SEQTA Engage. The School is expanding the use of the excellent SEQTA digital platform throughout the Primary School. Parents of Primary School students from Pre-Primary to Year 6 will shortly receive welcome provisioning emails to join SEQTA Engage. If you receive a provisioning email please activate the link within one week.

Parents of secondary students are reminded that you will require access to SEQTA Engage to receive information about the upcoming Parent/Teacher Interview Evenings and to view Interim Reports for Year 7 to Year 12 students. Parent/Teacher Interview Evening information including the appointment card will be available on SEQTA Engage from Monday 13 March. Interim Reports for Year 10, 11 and 12 students will be available for viewing by Friday 24 March and for Year 7, 8 and 9 students by Friday 31 March.

If you have recently changed your email address or experience any difficulties with SEQTA Engage please contact Karen Ayres at the School on 9495 8121.

Invitation to School Events
Parents are invited to attend a number of Secondary School events to be held in the lead up to the end of term. The Parent/Teacher Interview Evenings are a terrific chance to touch base with your child's subject/course teachers. Students are expected to attend the interviews in full Summer Uniform, to be held on:

  • Thursday 30 March - Year 10, 11 and 12 Parent Teacher Interview Evening, 5:00pm – 7:00pm in The Commons
  • Monday 3 April – Year 7, 8 and 9 Parent Teacher Interview Evening, 5:00pm – 7:00pm in the Year 7 Centre and The Commons

Also in the last week of the Term 1 there will be two important events. The Secondary Colours Assembly will be held on Wednesday 5 April at 8.45am in the BDISC. At this assembly we will acknowledge student successes and representation at the Inter-House and Inter-School Swimming Carnivals, as well as announce the Year 7 House Councillors.

On Friday 7 April at 9:00am in the BDISC, the Whole School Easter Worship Service will take place. This is traditionally a very special John Wollaston occasion. We look forward to welcoming you to the School at these important events.

Mindfulness at JWACS
There have recently been a number of media spotlights on high profile sporting identities, expressing the positive changes they have experienced in their busy and stressful lives, largely due to practicing mindfulness on a daily basis. In the 2017 Student Homework Diary there is a new mindfulness activity for students to practice every week. Here are a few ideas from the diary that you might like to practice at home!

backpack

Life’s Backpack – think of all the people, places, pets and things that are important to you and why. Then pack your imaginary life backpack and carry it around with you everywhere you go. (2017, p. 26)

Favourite Song – in your mind mentally sing your favourite song while at the same time writing out all of the words and describe what they mean to you and how they make you feel. (2017, p. 30)

Sounds – go outside, close your eyes and listen to the sounds around you for one minute. Then write down all of the sounds you heard and what made them. (2017, p. 32)


Best wishes

  • Above average gain in John Wollaston's NAPLAN results                                            BACK

  • Equestrian

  • New Chairman of School Council

  • Launch of the Strategic Plan 2017 - 2020

Above average gain in John Wollaston's NAPLAN results
The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) is responsible for Australia's national reporting programme, including My School. The My School website is updated annually with the previous year's NAPLAN results and other enhancements. The 2017 update became available to the public on 8 March 2017. I encourage you to browse the site www.myschool.edu.au  when you have the opportunity.

For the past few years, ACARA has released information on schools demonstrating substantially above average gain in their NAPLAN results as students’ progress from Year 3 to Year 5 and Year 7 to Year 9. Gains of this magnitude are significant and worthy of acknowledgement. I am delighted that ACARA has contacted me to advise that John Wollaston has achieved above average gain in our 2016 NAPLAN results.

My School reports three types of gain in student achievement:

  • overall gain compared to previous years
  • gain compared to schools with similar students based on the Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage (ISCEA) level
  • gain compared to other students at the same average NAPLAN starting score

Schools identified with above average gain have generally demonstrated substantial improvement in both reading and numeracy. Congratulations to our students and staff who have achieved such pleasing improvement in the 2016 NAPLAN. Whilst I am the first to acknowledge that NAPLAN is but one measure of a student's skills and ability, and should be viewed in this context, it is very pleasing that our literacy and numeracy programmes are realising such positive educational outcomes.

 

Equestrian
Congratulations to the John Wollaston equestrian students who competed in a dressage day over the long weekend. The girls all achieved personal bests in their tests showing commitment and bravery. They all were very proud in their JWACS Uniform and represented the School with pride. If you would like any further information about future equestrian events please contact: Cathy Smyth This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

New Chairman of School Council
At the February meeting of School Council, members elected Mr Julian Misso as the new Chairman. Mr Misso takes over from Mr Laurie Scidone who will remain on Council and also serve as a member of the Finance and Building and Grounds Committees. Mr Craig Moulton was elected Deputy Chairman. Council also welcomed Mrs Bronwyn Twining as a new member. Mrs Twining who retired last July after a long and successful career in education, including nearly 15 years at John Wollaston, is keen to give back to the profession and serve as a member of the governing body of the School. The School Council looks forward to another positive year for the school community.

Launch of the Strategic Plan 2017 - 2020
The new Strategic Plan was ratified by School Council at its February meeting. Thank you to the many parents who contributed to the comprehensive consultation phase led by Dr Liz Pattison in Semester 2 last year. Your input, together with that of the students, staff and CEO of the Anglican Schools Commission the Revd Peter Laurence OAM, has resulted in an exciting strategic plan which reflects the vision and ideas of our school community. In common with all stakeholders is the wish for the School to continue to prosper and affirm its standing as the "school of choice" in the region. 

As the School moves towards the end of this decade we have the opportunity to build upon the many achievements of the past and importantly, chart a new direction for the future. It is important for us all to embrace the exciting initiatives and challenges that lie ahead and be guided by our Mission: "We enable our students to discover their passion and direction in life and make a positive contribution in the world."

 
With good wishes
Anne Ford
