Principal's Report

From The Principal

The College is extremely excited to launch a New Program for 2018. The SEE program is a program for students who show high academic aptitude and have high academic aspirations. 

 

Program Goals

SEE has been developed to address the needs of high achieving students who demonstrate academic excellence, high levels of task commitment and outstanding creativity. A ‘high achiever’ must be prepared to take on the challenges offered, be willing to take risks and to set more challenging goals.

The program aims to allow students to:

  • Develop deep understanding and critical thinking skills
  • Enhance their ability to work with more abstract and in-depth course material
  • Become effective problem solvers
  • Successfully work as independent and co-operative learners
  • Create pathways to success for their future study and career aspirations

Please don’t hesitate to contact the College if you would like any further details about this program.

 

NAPLAN (National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy) tests were conducted this week for students in Years 3, 5, 7 & 9. Parents will receive individual results later in the year. Teachers will use the data provided from the NAPLAN results and other data to track student performance and improvement over time.

 

The Mothers’ Day stall organised by our Parents’ Group was once again highly successful with a wonderful selection of gifts available for students to purchase. I hope that the mums, grandmothers, and significant people enjoyed the gifts selected for them by the students.

 

The College Open Day was held on May 9th. It was great to see so many families from our community interested in finding out about our College. A special thanks to all of our students and staff who gave up their time to support the College during the day and on the night.

 

The College Annual Variety night is coming up on the 16th of May. I have been told that it is a great night and from the talent I have seen performing around the school I am sure it will be. It would great to see the theatre full supporting our students.  Please contact the office to purchase tickets.

 

Our Year 10 students will all be involved in Mock interviews on Thursday the 18th of May, as part of our Managed Individual Pathways program. Thirty-one guests from business and industry will be conducting the interviews, which are a valuable experience for our students. Thank you to Jodie McCarthy and Pam Naylor for organizing this important event.

 

I would like to let the school community know that the Canteen will be changing ownership in the coming weeks. Our current operators have had to finish up due to family circumstances. I would like to thank them for their service to our College community. Fina Foods will be taking over from Monday May 22nd. That will unfortunately leave the college without a canteen for the week of the 15th to the 20th. The Parents and friends group has kindly agreed to put on a Barbeque for 2 days, Our SRC will also put on a Barbeque and we are trying to arrange food for one other day. I will keep our community up to date on what is happening. I would,however,  like to remind parents that students are not to leave the grounds to buy food.

Walk Safely To School Day

WE’RE TAKING IT IN OUR STRIDE ON FRIDAY, 19 MAY2017

Well it’s that time of year again when our school seriously starts talking aboutwalking!

Not only is walking a wonderful way to get you where you want to be, it also gets your health – and your child’s health on the right track too. So that’s why this year our school is participating in National Walk Safely to School Day on Friday 19 May2017.

 

Walk Safely to School Day asks that we all consider our transport habits and try to incorporate more walking as part of a healthy, active way to get around. And although walking all the way to school isn’t realistic for many of us, it’s quite easy to figure out how you can build a walk into your family’s dailyroutine.

 

You can teach your child the healthy habit of walking more

  • Walking with them the whole way to school
  • If they get the bus or train, walk past your usual stop and get on at the next stop
  • If you have to drive, park the car a few blocks away from the school and walk the rest of the way.

Regular exercise like walking with your child not only helps them (and you!) beat chronic problems like obesity, heart disease, behavioural and mental health issues and diabetes. It also gives you a great opportunity to teach your child safe ways to behave around roads andtraffic.

Remember, Active Kids are Healthy Kids so get planning your own Walk Safely to School Day journey for Friday 19 May2017!

Kiss asthma goodbye this World Asthma Day

Asthma Australia has come up with a great app for young people with Asthma!

 

Why was an asthma app for young people developed?

The National Young People and Asthma Strategy (NYPAS) is managed by Asthma Australia under the Asthma Child and Adolescent Program (ACAP) and funded by the Australian Government. 

A major survey of young people aged 12-25 years was undertaken in 2014 by Young and Well CRC for Asthma Australia.  Results and recommendations indicated that internet options for health advice were preferred by young people to other interventions. 

Mobile phone apps are a well-used tool by this age group and Asthma Australia supported the development of an app specific to young people with asthma through its research fund. This work was undertaken by a team from the University of Sydney led by Associate Professor Lorraine Smith and included Professor Susan Sawyer, Dr Juliet Foster and Associate Professor Rafael Calvo as contributory investigators.

 

How was the app developed?

The development of this new app included clinician feedback and most importantly, the involvement of young people with asthma via focus groups to help ensure the app is relevant to their needs. 

The app includes a goal-setting function that incorporates gamification to make the app more attractive and to enhance the user’s experience and motivation.  

Our survey of young people with asthma also showed that approximately 50% have a mental health issue, double that of the general population of young people.  This figure aligns with similar research for other chronic conditions. The app has therefore been designed to also help young people with the psychological impacts of asthma.

A competition for young people to name the app resulted in the catchy and somewhat cheeky title, ‘Kiss My Asthma’.  The app is being launched today on World Asthma Day, 2 May 2017, at a climbing gym in Sydney with young people from the focus groups climbing (along with two brave members of the app team). 

 

What does the app include?

The app features:

  • access to your Asthma Action Plan
  • the ability to track your asthma symptoms, severity and attacks, making it easy to inform your doctor or specialist accurately about your asthma
  • mood tracker
  • setting goals and receive support from one of the app’s monster assistants
  • reminders to take your asthma preventer medications
  • Asthma First Aid instructions and emergency contacts
  • finding out more about asthma, asthma medications and devices, and managing anxiety

Where can you download the app?

Kiss My Asthma is available on the App Store and GooglePlay now!

Secondary News

From The Assistant Principal

The college open day and night was a great success and it was very heartening to see so many of our current students feel proud of their college and they were the finest ambassadors we could ask for.  Staff were fantastic in their efforts and I have no doubt that we were welcoming and demonstrated to the community what a great place Carwatha is.

 

A reminder to all parents that we ask for their support with the college uniform – that at all times must be worn and must follow the specifications as listed in the college diary and on the website.  Please note that hoodies worn under jackets are not uniform and should not be worn.  It is also not acceptable to have bright artificially coloured hair. Should you have any question about uniform please do not hesitate to contact me or one of the year level coordinators.  We thank all the parents that support us and work hard to ensure that their child is in full school uniform and at all times is well presented.

 

COMPASS

Compass allows parents to be very informed of how their child is progressing.  Parents and staff can now email each other directly from compass and this will facilitate more direct conversation.  Parents are asked to check compass for attendance – where they can see lesson by lesson, or daily the attendance of their child.  Staff have been recording lesson plan goals or learning intentions and success criteria on compass – which allows students to know exactly what they should be learning and if they have mastered it properly.  I encourage you to ask you child questions about their learning and get them to show you the lesson plans that staff develop on compass.  It is very important that parents stay connected and involved in their child’s education – especially in secondary as though they may not express it – they still need support and guidance.

If you have lost your compass log in or need assistance on how to navigate compass please do not hesitate to contact the general office.

SRC Report

On Thursday 4th of May the SRC committee held a casual dress day with a denim theme.

 SRC also held a sausage sizzle for both the primary and secondary students during lunch time, which was very successful with all sausages and drinks being sold out. Music was played, and many students enjoyed their time outside in the sun relaxing. We would like to thank the student body for supporting this SRC event.  

SRC students were also involved in our Open Day, which was held on the 9th of May. The vibrant school community was in action that day and parents could observe and interact with students engaged in their dynamic learning environment. For the evening tour, the SRC gathered together for a meeting where we spoke about the importance of our roles so that the parents were able to view the wide number of positions our school has to offer. This event was a wonderful opportunity to experience a day in the life of Carwatha College P-12, and SRC students thouroughly enjoyed sharing their wonderful journey with prospective parents.

Ipad Information

iPad Hire

Apple has changed its model availability as of the beginning of May. The cheapest model (iPad 5th Generation) and hard case will now cost $70 per semester or $140 per year.

When parents request iPad hire outside of the normal distribution period (beginning of the school year) there is always a delay in providing the device. The school does not carry stock.

8A Science Experiment – Expansion And Contraction

On Tuesday May 9, 8A science students did an experiment about states of matter, regarding how they expand or contract. Students in groups performed experiments demonstrating the expansion and contraction of a gas and a liquid, and watched a demonstration about the expansion and contraction a solid. To be successful in this experiment, students needed to observe and record results accurately and have knowledge of the particle theory, kinetic energy and the terms ‘expansion’ and ‘contraction’. Thank you to Huy and Ashton for assisting me in packing up the experiment.

8C Science Experiment - Dry Ice 

On Friday May 5th, 8C students participated in a dry ice experiment. They learnt that dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide, not frozen water. The focus of this experiment was understanding that a change in heat can cause substances to change their state of matter. Students saw dry ice turn straight from a solid to a gas, without becoming a liquid, like water would. They then answered questions based on their observations. Did you know – dry ice can be used to make beer, kill warts and eliminate bed bugs?!

Mrs Crawford

From The Year 10 Coordinator

For the last two weeks our year 10 students have been working closely with teachers, preparing for one of life’s nerve wrecking activities, ‘The Job Interview’.

Preparations began with a launch to outline the program goals, activities and timeline. Job applications are now being polished up, with the final edits being applied. Mock interview preparation was our assembly focus last Thursday. I’m confident that by the time the BIG DAY arrives, Thursday 18 May, our students will be well prepared, with resumes in hand, dressed to impress, and well-rehearsed.

 

All our teachers, and students alike, are looking forward to seeing our year 10’s looking super special, in their appropriate interview clothes, as they walk into the interviews. I encourage all parents and family adults to find an opportunity to discuss the “Winning the Job” process with your child. Share experiences and provide the support and confidence that will surely be welcomed and comforting.

 

At our last Year Level Assembly, I had the pleasure of awarding many certificates in recognition of our student’s accomplishments in either academic achievement, community service, attendance record, subject awards, etc…

I’m pleased to say that more than half the year level was awarded certificates for greater than 90% school attendance.

Some of the outstanding academic achievements include:

  • Savo Smoljanic, Dina Diamantis and Yum (Claire) Huang – For achieving 100% on the Unit 1 General Mathematics Matrices Test
  • Eftalya Coskun, Kylie Handley, Samuel Leventakis, George Souravlas, Natthanan (Mai) Thonyai, Dina Diamantis, Yum (Claire) Huang, and Yinghhan (Hannah) Li – For achieving 100% on the Unit 1 General Mathematics Matrices Application SAC

Congratulations to these students. I look forward to many more great student achievements.

Year 11 Excursion - Healesville Sanctuary

On Friday April 28th, Yr 11 Biology students went to Healesville Sanctuary for the day. The focus of the day was how animals adapt to their environment, and what homeostatic mechanisms they possess to help them survive. Students first had an educator-led session in the morning, and then watched the famous ‘Spirits of the sky’ show. A well-deserved lunch was eaten, and then students investigated an Australian animal at the sanctuary as their focus for the afternoon. Students then completed a booklet at school, as part of an outcome on Homeostasis and Adaptations. Thank you to Mr Murphy for attending and the students for proudly representing our college in public.

From The Assistant Principal

It has been a busy couple of weeks in the Primary Sector of the College.

 

Last Friday our grades five and six students participated in their first GALA sports day for the year. From all accounts, they had a great day. The students are to be congratulated on their fine behavior and sportsmanship. Well done!

 

Grade Prep- 3L celebrated their unit of work by having a Multicultural Lunch last week.  It was wonderful to see the varied and different food that students brought to share. It was also great to see students sample all the different food. 

 

Thank you to Anne Copley and her team of helpers who set up, and manned, the Mothers' Day Stall. The children enjoyed their shopping experience, taking home some lovely gifts!

 

I'd like to remind parents once again, to please name all items of clothing, particularly windcheaters and bomber jackets. There are already many unnamed items in lost property which must belong to someone.

Gala Day

Sports Report – Gala Day 1 – 5/5/17

On Friday we had 4 sports head out including, AFL, Tee ball, Netball and Basketball. A big thank you to all who helped out on the day; the day wouldn’t have run as smoothly without you.

 

Basketball travelled out to Dandenong Basketball Stadium. We had 4 teams entered on the day, 1 boys' team, 1 mixed team and 2 girls' teams. Our second girls team and our boys team had a good afternoon winning 2 games, drawing 1 game and losing 1 both finishing 4th in their pools. The mixed team battled hard all day and managed in the end to win their final game to end the day on a high note. Our first girls' team managed to make the final winning 4 games, drawing 1 game and losing 1. In the final they worked extremely hard but unfortunately went down to a strong opposition in Rosewood Downs.

 

Netball had two teams competing, a mixed team and a girls’ team. Both teams started out strong with a win in their first games. In the end the teams finished 1st and 4th for the day.

It was a cold start down at Greaves Reserve but that didn’t stop the Netball, Tee ball and AFL teams. The boys in AFL got off to a slow start losing their first two games but worked extremely hard to come back in the next two, finishing the day with 2 wins. Everyone showed great determination and persistence to work as a team to overcome their challenges. In the end they finished up in 6th spot which is the best we have done in a number of years.

 

Our T-ball team had a fantastic time at Gala Day. We won our first match for the day and had a couple of close finishes in other games but unfortunately just missed out on winning those games. In our final game we were playing for 7th or 8th place. We had a great game and were able to come out as winners. This meant that we came 7th overall.

 

All students had a wonderful day; they were full of energy and enthusiasm, representing Carwatha College to the best of their ability. Everyone should be proud of their efforts and I look forward to our next Gala Day later in the term. We would love to have as many parent helpers as possible. It is a great opportunity to come see how fantastic our sports program is and watch the kids in action!

Gala Day 2 – Friday 23rd June

 

Please if you can help on the day, come and see Mr Richards or Miss Levy.

Racoon Oil Pastel Drawing

Students looked carefully at images of racoons. We looked at the texture and colour of their hair, and shape of their eyes, ears and nose.

Using a lead pencil we sketched lightly these main features, and then used oil pastels to add colour and texture to our racoons by flicking and blending.

Finally, adding a water colour background to compete our artwork.

Library News

Genrefication Is Coming To Carwatha College P-12 Library!

"Where are your scary books?"


"Do you have any books like Twilight?"

 

“I like reading crime novels. What do you suggest?’

 

We are currently transforming the fiction collection. We are implementing a new strategy to promote reading and literacy through the ‘genrefication’ of the fiction collection. Instead of books being shelved according to author, we are rearranging and labelling our fiction books by genre. We have chosen six of the most popular genres to begin with: science fiction, horror, fantasy, chick literature, classics and crime novels.

Benefits

  • Students can find the books they want more easily as they will still be arranged alphabetically by author within the genre and each genre is colour coded. Science fiction, Future, Dystopian Fiction and Steampunk all have a yellow sticker at the base of the spine. The Classics have a purple sticker, Chick Lit and Romance is pink, etc. Also, with all of one genre together, students can more easily select a book appropriate to their age and reading level.
  • Books are organized the way students look for them.
  • We can instantly identify holes in our collection.

Lunchtime Crafts

Over the last two weeks our lunchtime craft sessions have been organised around Mother’s Day. We hope the mums or grandmothers whose children attended the sessions will enjoy the love contained in their gift.

Library team: Mrs Jenny Famularo, Mrs Debra Sal, Mrs Maree Wood.
