School Fair
Thank you to the amazing people who helped out with the School Fair on Saturday 6 May. From the lovely ladies who sorted through donations, labelling and boxing them up, to our awesome P&F Committee and helpers who pitched in with cooking and serving food, running stalls, setting up and cleaning away. Thank you also to the smiling families that came along and enjoyed a great day in the sunshine! It was so lovely seeing our school community coming together and having fun for the second time this year.

P & F Disco Friday 26 May
The first P&F Disco of the year is nearly here! We are looking forward to seeing students from Kindergarten to Year 7 on Friday 26 May in the Victoria Morgan Arts Centre (VMAC) at John Wollaston Anglican Community School. After last year’s successful change of format we will continue with a $5 payment at the door. Please have the correct tender to help speed up the admission of all children. Parents of children in Kindergarten to Year 2 are required to stay with their children for the duration of the Disco. All other students in Years 3 to 7 must be delivered to and collected from the VMAC by a parent. No child will be allowed to exit without an adult for safety reasons. The $5 entry includes a glow product and a drink at the end of the Disco for the hot and thirsty dancers. Small prizes will also be handed out during each Disco session. It is always a great night for the children and the young at heart so come on down!

Lollypop Lady Gim
Gimnice

It is now official that Gim has retired from her work at our school. Luckily at the end of Term 1 we were able to host a ‘going away morning tea’ for Gim, so families would have the opportunity to formally say thank you for her many years of service at John Wollaston. Students also had the opportunity to say thank you and farewell, holding their lollypops high in honour of our lovely Gim. Our thanks and best wishes go to Gim for all her future adventures.

Biggest Morning Tea 
In support of the Cancer Council, the Primary School will be hosting a ‘Biggest Morning Tea’ picnic on Thursday 25 May, from 10:30am to 11:15am. All students from Kindergarten to Year 6 are invited to bring some morning tea, a picnic blanket and a gold coin donation to the grassed central courtyard near the Library Resource Centre. Parents and secondary siblings of primary students are also invited to join the primary children and enjoy some autumn sunshine and friendly conversation! We look forward to welcoming you to John Wollaston for this Scott House fundraising initiative.

Encountering Canberra
CANBERRARESIZEDtall
A stream of red swept through Canberra this week when our Year 6 students, smartly dressed in their winter uniforms, visited a number of places of interest. The accommodation at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) lived up to all expectations, not only for the great food, but for the fact that the sleeping arrangements resulted in more sleep being had by all! Many of the experiences provided the students with a wealth of information to draw from in their unit of inquiry ‘Societies are governed by a variety of systems which have an impact on the lives of individuals’ with visits to Old and New Parliament Houses and the Australian Electoral Commission on Day 1. In a previous unit of inquiry the students explored some of the research done by the CSIRO using GPS technology to track the flight paths of bees. They were very excited when they visited the CSIRO to learn more about this and see a model of a bee armed with a miniature GPS!

Celebrating our Mums
The smell of baking emanated from the Early Learning Centre last week as the children busily prepared for their Mother’s Day tea parties. Gratitude can take many forms, from hand-made gifts to hand-written messages of appreciation or gentle massages and colourful nail-painting! Watching our ELC Mothers leave school decked in beads and crowns, it is clear our ELC children greatly appreciate their Mums!

ELC Swimming
Our Pre-Primary to Year 2 students have come to the end of a successful first week of swimming lessons. Swimming is only one of the very important skills developed during these lessons. Swimming lessons also help our students to develop as risk-takers and step out of their comfort zones, learn important self-management skills and develop independence. Swimming lessons continue until Friday 26 May.

  • ESTs for Year 12 General and Foundation courses: Monday 22 – Wednesday 24 May
  • Year 11 and 12 Examinations: Friday 26 May – Friday 2 June
  • Academic Scholarships for 2018

School Photograph Day – Monday 8 May
By its very nature, this is a disruptive day to the regular teaching and learning programme. However, it is important that all students observe the schedule for the day and to make sure they are in the BDISC five minutes before their scheduled photograph. This will help to ensure that that day runs smoothly for photographs. Students must wear their full winter uniform for all photographs. An electronic version of the schedule is available for you to access in the documents section of SEQTA Engage.

Photograph order envelopes have been distributed to students from Kindergarten to Year 12. Parents are asked to ensure that their child has their photograph order envelope with them on Monday 8 May, even if photographs will not be ordered. Spare photograph order envelopes are available at ELC Administration, Primary Administration and Student Services Reception.

The School will be holding a second School Photograph Day on Thursday 17 August 2017. Family/sibling photographs of students from the same family, attending John Wollaston Anglican Community School, will be offered on Thursday 17 August 2017. Parents of children in Little Wollies classes will be advised of their photograph days in the coming weeks.

NAPLAN: Tuesday 9 May – Thursday 11 May
NAPLAN commences on Tuesday Week 3. Students in Years 7 and 9 have received their NAPLAN schedule and an electronic version is available for you to access in the documents section of SEQTA Engage.

NAPLAN Information for Parents

ESTs for Year 12 General and Foundation courses: Monday 22 – Wednesday 24 May
Students enrolled in Year 12 in WA General and Foundation courses will be sitting Externally Set Tasks (ESTs); commencing Monday 21 May. These are compulsory 50 minute assessments that all Year 12sin WA who are enrolled in these courses are required to sit and constitute 15% of the course assessment. The tasks are set by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA). However, teachers at the School will mark the assessments using a marking key provided by SCSA and sample scripts will be forwarded to them for moderation purposes. Examination conditions apply for students sitting ESTs. ESTs are sat before the examination period commences in order to meet SCSA requirements and deadlines. The regular timetable continues to apply except for when a scheduled EST is to be sat.

Year 11 and 12 Examinations: Friday 26 May – Friday 2 June
Year 11 and 12 Examinations commence Friday 26 May and conclude Friday 2 June. Students have received their examination timetable and a copy of the conditions (rules) that must be observed for examinations. All Year 11 and 12 students only attend school on the days that they are to sit a scheduled examination. Most examinations are scheduled for the morning, commencing at 8:40am. After sitting their examination (students must stay for the full duration of the examination), students should return home. Should a student wish to attend school at times when they do not have a scheduled examination, they must sign in at Student Services Reception on arrival (or after their examination if they intend remaining at school) and sign out when they depart the School. Provision will be made for students to study/work in the Library Resource Centre. All classes for Year 11 and 12 ATAR, General, Foundation, Preliminary and Certificate courses are suspended for the examination period.

During the examination period, VET students continue with their regular programme on Thursday and Friday but do not attend school Monday to Wednesday.

When not attending school for a scheduled examination, the expectation for all students is to be studying at home, completing course tasks, attending work placements or attending TAFE (VET students). The time should not be viewed as additional free/holiday time. All classes recommence on Tuesday 6 June. Monday 5 June is a public holiday.

Academic Scholarships for 2018
John Wollaston Anglican Community School is delighted to announce Academic Scholarships for 2018. Year 4, Year 6 and Year 9 students enrolled in government or independent schools, including current John Wollaston students, are invited to participate in a scholarship examination to be conducted at John Wollaston Anglican Community School commencing at 8.20am in The Commons, on Saturday 17 June 2017.

Two scholarships per year level will be awarded. Successful applicants will be granted a 50% remission on Tuition Fees. The scholarships will be awarded for the student’s education for a three (3) year period commencing from entry into Year 5, Year 7 or Year 10 in 2018, at John Wollaston Anglican Community School. This is a wonderful opportunity for students and their families to experience the modern facilities, engaging learning programmes and supportive staff that the School has to offer.

  • Gratitude                                                                                    BACK
  • Year 7 Salvation Army Incursion

The latest research emerging around the topic of gratitude is really quite incredible. People who practise gratitude on a regular basis are more physically and mentally healthy than people who do not. Gratitude, from the Latin word, Gratia means grace or thankfulness. The American people understand the importance of gratitude, albeit for one day a year. Thanksgiving Day in the United States, which has historical roots as a sacred celebration, is a day where families gather to share a meal and give thanks for all the good things they enjoy in their lives. Researchers from the Harvard Medical School have found that there is a strong link between gratitude and happiness. People who practise daily gratitude feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, deal with adversity and build strong relationships.

There are some really simple ways that we can express our gratitude on a daily basis. These include:

  • Keeping a journal where we record everything we are grateful for each day
  • Taking time over the evening meal for each family member to speak about their day and express what they are grateful for
  • Writing a handwritten note to someone expressing your gratitude to them
  • Doing a good deed for someone for no apparent reason

As Deputy Principal Pastoral Care at John Wollaston Anglican Community School, I am grateful for;

  • Our committed and professional teaching and support staff
  • Our students who display compassion, kindness and friendship to each other every day
  • Our open grounds and excellent facilities which inspire students and staff to be the best person they can be

There is an excellent YouTube video The Science of Happiness which examines the power of gratitude. I encourage you to take seven minutes out of your busy day to watch this video. Please click on the link below:

Year 7 Salvation Army Incursion
On Tuesday 2 May the Year 7 cohort had their Salvation Army incursion "Beyond the Classroom". This incursion is part of the year long Year 7 Transition Programme that works closely with the Salvation Army. The Year 7s learnt about homelessness in Perth and Australia and what one can do to help this situation.

School Fair tomorrow
With fine weather forecast tomorrow, I encourage all school families to attend our School Fair. It promises to be a terrific day with over 50 stalls, several food outlets, pony rides, double lane slide, all age bouncer, obstacle combo, a pet show, a dance display and live music. There will be something for everyone! The Fair has been months in the planning. Thank you to all involved and, in particular, our Business Manager Gailene Shore who has coordinated the event.

World's Greatest Shave Fundraiser
Congratulations to the 16 secondary students, my Personal Assistant Susan Kirby and Head of Humanities Gary Bordoni who participated in the World's Greatest Shave in the BDISC during lunchtime on Monday 1 May. Head of Charter House Pauline Galley organises the School's participation in this fundraiser on a biennial basis and each occasion is a great success. This year's event received wonderful support from our Year 12 boys several of whom decided to have their locks shaved for the cause. The staff were great sports with Mr Bordoni agreeing to lose his moustache for $100 and Mrs Kirby braving my handiwork with the clippers! With pledges to be tallied at the end of the month, it is anticipated that we will raise approximately $3000 for the Leukaemia Foundation, which is an outstanding effort. Thank you to Mrs Galley and the two hairdressers from Tyler Reid Hair and Beauty Salon in Canning Vale who donated their time to the School.

Thank you to all families for your support in joining SEQTA Engage. I have been very pleased by the use of this parent portal, which enables parents and guardians to have a greater involvement their child's day-to-day schooling and a clearer understanding of the educative process.

It is important to remember that the SEQTA portal is an educational tool that can be viewed by staff (SEQTA Teach), students (SEQTA Learn) and parents (SEQTA Engage). The volume of correspondence generated by our school community over a 24-hour period is considerable. Since the portal's implementation, we have spent time explaining to students and staff the etiquette to be observed when using SEQTA; that is, all communication must be formal in style, courteous and timely. It is appropriate that parents and guardians also observe this etiquette so that as a school community we have a shared understanding and expectation of our communication with each other. To that end, I request that you observe the following protocols when using Direqt Messages on SEQTA Engage:

Canberra Encounter Experience
We are all excited about our tour to Canberra! We leave on Sunday 14 May and our Year 6 students are looking forward to staying (and eating at the wonderful café) at the Australian Institute of Sport. On Monday 15 May we will visit the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House and then go to Parliament House. Tuesday will involve visits to the National Film and Sound Archive, the National Capital Exhibition and then the Australian War Memorial. Primary Head Girl, Olivia and Head Boy, Fletcher will lay a wreath at 5:00pm at the closing ceremony on behalf of the John Wollaston school community. On Wednesday we will visit the National Gallery of Australia, the CSIRO and then the Telstra Tower for a great view of Canberra. On our last morning we will visit Government House, the Royal Australian Mint and then a favourite to end the tour, Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre. We arrive home later on Thursday night, ready for a good night’s sleep and a day at home on Friday 19 May. We are looking forward to a great trip, with plenty of news to share with the whole school community after our return.

Pirates! The Musical
pirates1

Over the school holidays the Primary Performing Arts group were busy rehearsing for this year’s musical theatre production. Over 60 students from Years 3 to 6 are involved and I am most pleased to see more boys taking part this year. Mrs Jenny Coles displays great enthusiasm and energy and I certainly admire her zest! There are plenty of great songs in this production and I look forward to the performances both at the Perth Convention Centre and here at John Wollaston. More information will follow about tickets for each performance. I can promise you a brilliant show with some beautiful singing for your entertainment.

Kindergarten Speech Pathology Workshop
On Tuesday 23 May our Kindergarten families are invited to a seminar conducted by a Speech Pathologist from the Dyslexia-Speld Foundation. This is the culmination of Speech Pathology screening for all Kindergarten students. The seminar will cover areas such as, early literacy foundations; typical language development; and developing oral language at home. Parents will receive resources and handouts at this event. We know that the number of words our children are exposed to in the early years and the frequency of two way conversations with adults, have a great impact on future literacy development. We want to provide the best possible opportunity for our students to develop alphabetic and phonological awareness and, most importantly, make sure that all students are making progress. This Screening Project is designed to give us valuable information to assist your child to learn. Please always remember that reading to your child each day is a vital part of learning and adds to the warmth of your relationship with your children.

Speech Pathology letter to Kingergarten parents

NAPLAN
The annual NAPLAN (National Assessment Program for Literacy and Numeracy) for Years 3 and 5 will take place next week. While we understand NAPLAN is just one assessment at one point in time (a ‘snapshot' of learning) and we are careful not to create too much anxiety around this process, it is nevertheless important data. I encourage you to stress the importance to your child of doing his/her best, carefully reading the questions and completing as much of each test as possible. Please speak to your class teacher with any further queries.

NAPLAN Information for Parents

Welcome to New Students
In my recent interviews I have noticed that many families are coming to John Wollaston based on recommendations from friends and family. This is most pleasing and testimony to the quality of our students and staff. We have a strong, caring school community. Thank you all for contributing to our success. As always, please arrange to meet with me through Primary Secretary, Mrs Brown should you have any concerns. I would also like you to meet with me to share any positive news; there is nothing better as a teacher, to receive praise and encouragement.

Take care

Thermomix Incursion

On Monday 1 May, the Year 11 and 12 Hospitality and Year 12 Food, Science and Technology students enjoyed an incursion with Jenny Hanna from Thermomix. The students learnt about the history of the Thermomix and used the machines to create mushroom cappuccino, pizza Bianca and hummus. They also did a comparison of the Thermomix and traditional cooking methods making floating islands served with sauce Anglaise and butterscotch sauce. It was a hands-on learning experience with the students developing an understanding of the capabilities of the machine in both Hospitality and home environments and seeing food science in action.
