Anglican Schools Commission Board visits the School
I was delighted to welcome the ASC Board for a tour of the School and morning tea on Tuesday of this week. Led by the Board Chair Mrs Barbara Godwin OAM and the CEO The Reverend Peter Laurence OAM, members toured the Technology Centre, the Learning Enrichment Centre, The Commons, the Year 7 Centre and the Early Learning Centre. Our visitors were most complimentary of our grounds, facilities, the students and the ambience of the campus. Head Prefect Jayden Asmus and Chapel Prefect Chloe Patulney welcomed the group and accompanied them for the morning. As we have come to expect, the Prefects did themselves and the School proud, speaking with confidence and poise.

A Wonderful Founders' Day
wideIMGP8568

The School's 28th birthday was celebrated in great spirit last Friday. The morning Founders' Day Service led by Frederick Irwin Anglican School Chaplain, The Reverend Noel Oakey paid tribute to our founders and acknowledged the special gifts each of us brings to the John Wollaston community. Our Primary choirs sang beautifully with four soloists leading the congregation in our traditional concluding song I Am Australian.

After lunch the annual Staff versus Students netball match for the Principal's Cup was played in the gym. In a closely fought contest, the staff prevailed keeping their winning record intact. Despite the threat of rain, the Wollaston marketplace was held in the grounds with a variety of games, a bouncy castle and slide, portrait painting, disco and novelty stalls entertaining the students for the afternoon. As we have come to expect, there was a great sense of fun and goodwill with students of all ages interacting in a positive and caring way.

Each Founders' Day we donate the proceeds of the collection at the Service and the takings of the stalls to charity. This year we donated $2,500 to Anglicare's Street Connect, an initiative which supports homeless youth in Perth. Thank you to all involved in contributing to the day's success. It is always one of the most enjoyable days in the school year.

2017 Anglicare WA School Sleep Out
widesleep out

Four brave John Wollaston students slept out on Friday 4 August at NIB Stadium for the 2017 Anglicare WA School Sleep Out.

Street Connect
Street Connect is a youth friendly outreach service which assists homeless and “at risk” young people aged 15-25 in the Perth inner city area in making positive life changes. Two qualified youth workers utilise a mobile youth resource centre (the bus) to engage street present young people, aiming to develop solid relationships and offer support and information to “at risk” young people.

The bus is a safe space for all youth and is stocked with various pamphlets, a mobile phone to call services with, sandwiches and water as well as blankets, sleeping bags, hygiene packs, pregnancy tests, condoms and a first aid kit. Street Connect does not receive any government funding and relies entirely on donations and fundraising to survive.

All students who registered for the event collected sponsors before the night and in total raised over $11,000 for Street Connect, Anglicare WA’s mobile youth homelessness outreach service.

Four brave John Wollaston students and two staff members slept out on Friday 4 August at NIB Stadium for the 2017 Anglicare WA School Sleep Out. The students raised over $1,000 through their individual sponsorships and this will be combined with the School's contribution from Founders' Day of approximately $2,500.

 

School Council Bursaries 2018
School Council is offering up to five bursaries to John Wollaston students entering the Secondary School in 2018. The purpose of a School Council Bursary is twofold. Firstly, to offer financial assistance to an existing school family who supports the values of the School and secondly, to provide educational opportunities for an appropriately qualified student who would not otherwise be able to remain at the School for financial reasons. 

Please click on the link below for more information about School Council Bursaries being offered in 2018.

SEQTA Engage
SEQTA
John Wollaston has embraced the digital learning management system known as SEQTA. SEQTA is used across the Primary and Secondary Schools and parents and guardians of students in Pre-Primary to Year 12 have been given access to this system through SEQTA Engage.

It is an expectation of the School that all parents/guardians access the SEQTA Engage portal at least once a week to review their child’s progress and respond to staff communications. SEQTA Engage allows parents/guardians to see assessment results and teacher feedback for their child/ren. Teachers use SEQTA’s Direqt Message function to email parents/guardians regarding academic or pastoral care concerns. Through SEQTA Engage parents can also see their child’s attendance history and address unexplained absences. Academic Reports will only be available through SEQTA.

Please take the time to log into SEQTA Engage and update yourself with any outstanding messages and results that you have not seen. If you require assistance to join SEQTA Engage or navigate the system, please contact Karen Ayres at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The Wollaston Dash
zwide teams

Last Wednesday morning, 2 August 2017, saw the very successful running of the inaugural Wollaston Dash. The Wollaston Dash is a relay race through the grounds of the School with each House Team made up of one student from each year group.The Year 12s ran the final leg of the race, along the front of the School, behind the Chapel and down through the heart of the School to the finish line. It was fantastic to see the Secondary School line the course and cheer on their House to the finish line.

Congratulations go to Hale House on being the inaugural Wollaston Dash champions.This Wollaston Dash signals the beginning of the Athletics season at our school.

Next Tuesday 15 August is the Secondary Inter-House Athletics Carnival at Ern Clark Athletics Centre. This will be a great day where all students will have the opportunity to represent and cheer on their House in a variety of athletic events. I would like to remind parents that the Secondary Inter-House Athletics Carnival is a normal school day and students are expected to attend. The House with the highest proportion of students at the carnival will be awarded extra points towards the House Spirit competition.

Due to the Athletics Carnival the Chalk Café will not be open on Tuesday 15 August, but will be back to normal service for Weeks 6 and 7.

Secondary Inter-House Athletics Carnival
The Secondary Inter-House Athletics Carnival and similar school events are fantastic opportunities for students to contribute to and to be involved in the co-curricular program of our school. We know from a wide range of research that being involved in these types of events is an important element of students feeling connected and valued as part of their community. In a time when many students spend far too much time in isolation, in front of a variety of electronic screens, the Secondary Inter-House Athletics Carnival is an opportunity for our students to run, jump, throw, cheer, support, connect and form stronger bonds with their fellow House team mates.

As we look forward to Tuesday 15 August, I invite and encourage all parents and friends to come along to Ern Clark Athletics Centre and support your children during this great day of fun and athletic pursuit.

Secondary Pre-Athletics Carnival Events
On Tuesday 8 August the Secondary Pre-Athletics Carnival Events were held at the School. Students competed in high jump, discus and the 1500 metre event.

Team Super Savers visit Parliament House
SuperSaversParliamentSMALL

On Monday 31 July five Year 5 students were invited to Parliament House to spend the day sitting in the Legislative Council as part of a United Nations Association of Australia project. Our students are part of a global program to make the world a better place through the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. A guest speaker program provided the provocation and inspiration for a workshop in the afternoon.

The Year 5 team plan to build on the connection they have already made with Save the Children Australia, to raise funds and provide services to refugee families in our local area. At the end of the day, a representative from the group was asked to stand up in Parliament House and make a presentation to all other participants. Chelsea Bydder made us all proud with a clear, confident description of the team’s future goals. She was supported by her good friends Amelia Jacobson, Arthlay Matibhiri, Anna Shaw, Mia Wall and Siyathmi Parakramawansa.

Sporting achievements in Year 6
At Assembly this morning I congratulated four Year 6 students for the recent excellent achievements. Danielle Samuels, for success in the State Gymnastics Championships in a number of events; Olivia Dodds for her first place in this week's IPSHA Inter-School Cross Country competition; Jacob Hale who has been selected to represent WA at the National Swimming Championships in Adelaide in December and Olivia Trueman, who has been selected for the State Soccer Team. These are all indicative of not only great sporting talent but also dedication and perseverance.

IMGP9189 IMGP9184 IMGP9198

Year 6 students led the way with great examples of their package free lunchboxes for Package free Monday!

This week the students showed their support of ‘Package Free Monday’ with many children making a conscious effort to reduce the amount of packaging in their lunchbox. Our Environment Captain, Esther Murray, spoke at Chapel about the impact of waste on the environment and the benefits of healthy eating. Some of our Year 6 students then shared their lunchboxes with the School and explained what they had done to reduce waste. This included using lunchboxes with individual compartments and not using plastic wrap around sandwiches or cut up fruit and vegetables

Each week we will be tracking the classes that are reducing their packaging and, at the end of the term, the winning class from Pre-Primary to Year 6 will get the opportunity to visit the Domestic Kitchen in the Technology Centre and make their very own morning tea or lunch!

Two short plays are being presented with an intermission in between with fresh fruit served as a snack during intermission.

Details about the two plays (with catchy songs and opportunities for audience participation):


Amy’s Bedtime Story

Kyle’s Rainbow Day
Written by local Performing Arts Primary School Specialist Teacher - Nicole George
It’s free dress day at school and Kyle is excited to wear the shirt his Granddad gave him… but for some reason his school friends think it’s an odd choice for a boy! By the end of the school day they have all learned that it’s ok to like different things… and that we’re all amazing, just like the rainbow!

Director Bree Hartley says “Come along for an interactive and fun theatre experience specifically created for children!”
“These plays were designed to be a fun and lighthearted way to explore some of the struggles small children face with a big emphasis on FUN!”
“Writer Nicole George is a local teacher (who teaches at West Byford Primary School and lives in Byford) and parent and as such has a unique insight into the minds of young children.” “She wanted to give young children an easy-access theatre experience that would be engaging and worthwhile.”
“At only $5 per ticket it is an affordable family outing and one that is sure to be a highlight of the holidays.”
