Principal's Report

Principal's Report

Dear Parents,

 

POSITIVE VIEW OF LIFE
It is wonderful to see the school spring to life again last week with the enthusiastic coming together of students and teachers, fresh from what appeared to have been a most enjoyable holiday break. However, I guess as the term goes along and the weather becomes warmer (hopefully), the accumulation of the year’s activities will start to take its toll and the children will need plenty of love, support and inspiration to help maintain their enthusiasm.

 

Sometimes it so happens that inspiration does not always come from people who we might wish to emulate or imitate. St Francis Xavier, during his exhausting mission to the people of Asia, is quoted as saying, “I complained about having no shoes until I met a leper who had no feet.” 

 

A couple of years ago there was a film which told the story of the legendary Christy Brown, who was born into a large family in a very poor part of Dublin. Christy had cerebral palsy which gave him a shaking body and an ungovernable head; his left foot was the only part of his body he could move. When he was five years old, he took a piece of chalk with his toes and began to draw. His mother taught him to read and then paint using his foot; he also learnt how to type.

 

People like Christy Brown and St Francis can help us to reappraise our attitudes to life. Sometimes we need to see past the negative intrusions into our lives and be influenced more by the positive aspects of each day’s events. We need to look at any given situation and ask ourselves what is right or good about it before we start to look for the negative or pessimistic view. This, I feel, is a most important trait we can pass onto our children, so they continue to embrace life with a spirit of wonder, awe and enthusiasm. With this type of approach our children would never fall into the trap of taking things for granted and would always be grateful for the opportunities that have been given to them. How blessed and exciting would life be …? 
 

School Improvement

Next week, a small contingent of staff from Infant Jesus School will be attending the National Diocesan System – School Improvement Colloquium on school effectiveness and improvement. We have been asked to present at this conference, some of the work we are doing as a school in the area of school leadership, whole school improvement and digital technologies. The theme of the Conference "Catholic School Improvement – Impact on ALL Students" – places at the heart of the conference, a focus on the young people we serve in Catholic education. 

Our workshop details the development and impact of school improvement over the past three years; shares the future direction of school and system reform in WA through Leading Lights; and demonstrates moving theory to practice through the sharing of one school’s journey in developing quality teachers who have embraced digital transformation with improved outcomes for students as their focus.

 

Don’t Label Children . . Help them Learn
 

Most parents would be hopeful that the observation that, “Children will be a great comfort to you in your old age,” is true for them when the time comes; that time might come sooner than expected, if the second part of the observation is true, “and they help you reach it faster, too!” Lionel Kauffman.

Parents are in constant demand from their children but, thankfully, those demands are mostly about food, shelter and pocket money. When demands of a more serious nature arise, such as bullying, we parents need to be immediately available to avoid the prospect of real damage being done to the self-image and self-confidence of our children.

However, parents need to be sure that bullying is what actually occurred and that it wasn’t taunting or teasing. Bullying is not accidental but intentional and, whatever its form, its intention is to hurt the other person. 

 

Bullying is an aggressive and negative behaviour and can occur regularly over a lengthy period of time. Taunting does not contain a physical component but makes fun of a person with the intention of hurting their feelings. Taunting tends to cause embarrassment to the other person by making them become red-faced or teary or visibly frightened. Teasing is somewhat harmless and occurs when a person pokes fun at another person and usually receives a return serve.  Neither person feels hurt, because hurt is not intended nor directed at something distinguishing about the other person, such as their speech or appearance.

 

As parents, we need to be careful that we don’t protect our children too much for, if we do, we aren’t empowering them to deal with conflict and challenges that pop up in life. If we want our children to be resilient and able to develop a healthy self-image and positive relationships, even through disagreement and conflict, then, we have to allow them some practise at facing their physical, emotional and social challenges with minimal interference from us and other adults.  If we are always there for every minor incident, our children will run the risk of growing up unable to look after themselves in adult social situations.

Sometimes children are reluctant to tell adults about bullying, because they feel embarrassed and ashamed that it’s happening; they might worry that their parents will be disappointed. They might even feel that it’s their own fault and that if they looked and acted differently, it wouldn’t be happening. When a child does seek help, they need to be praised for being courageous enough to talk about what’s happening to them. They need to be reassured that it’s the bully who’s behaving badly, not them, and that together you can work out a plan of action.

 

Bullying has many styles and motives and devising a strategy to eliminate it will depend on the individual circumstance. However, there are some basic principles that will suit most circumstances and these principles might include:

 

  • Advise your child not to respond to bullying by fighting or bullying back. This can easily escalate into violence, trouble and someone getting injured.
  • Advise that it’s natural to be upset by the bully, because that’s what bullies thrive on. Practise not reacting, or looking upset or becoming teary.
  • Advise telling the bully very firmly to stop what they are doing and then calmly walk away. By ignoring the bully you show you don’t care.
  • Encourage your child to get with friends who help their confidence; find activities that help your child feel confident and strong.

Performing Arts Festival

Over the next five weeks students from Infant Jesus School will participate in the Catholic Schools Performing Arts Festival. Children will represent the school in the Choral (School Choir) and in the Liturgical sections of the festival. The festival incorporates students from Catholic schools around the state.  It is a time of great excitement for our budding musicians as they will assuredly share their hard work and prowess, through voice or upon dedicated instruments, with the wider community.

 

In the next few weeks the music students will be diligently polishing their performance pieces to ensure they are well prepared for their scheduled performances. Please be advised of the important dates to note in your diary

 CONGRATULATIONS

Congratulations to Layla Firns (6W) for making it into the Under 12s Bruce Cup Tennis team.  Layla will compete in Melbourne in October. We wish her all the best.

School Uniform

The parents and staff at Infant Jesus School expect a high standard of dress to be maintained by all children. Students attending Infant Jesus School are required to wear the correct school uniform and sport uniform on the prescribed days. It is not appropriate for students to wear various coloured scarfs and jackets at school after they have arrived.

 

We encourage children to keep their hair neat and tidy whilst attending school. Hairstyles for both boys and girls should be appropriate and reflect accepted standards. Shoulder length hair or longer, is to be tied up with either scrunchies or ribbons in appropriate school colours.

 

Parents are requested to refrain from allowing children to dye or streak their hair during school terms and the Principal reserves the right to decide the acceptability of hairstyles.

 

A watch and a necklace with a Christian symbol may be worn and students are permitted to wear a signet ring.  Additionally, students are not permitted to wear nail polish or makeup to school. Students may wear one stud or sleeper (plain – eg. gold or silver) in each ear lobe.

 

Prayer for the Week

Dear God

We pray for ourselves, our families, our communities and

our schools.

May our hope in the future be nurtured,

May our trust in each other be encouraged,

May we be a sign of God’s love on this earth and enable

those we touch to be models of your goodness.

Empower us to be your servants, leading as You would in

justice and charity.

Enlighten us today with the power of your Spirit.

May You bless us and keep us always

in the palm of your hand.

Amen

SCHOOL NEWS

Learning

Year Four News 

The Year Four children have settled back into routine and are excited for the upcoming term and all of the events that have been planned.

 

In Religious Education the children have continued to prepare to receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist by further developing their knowledge and understandings.

 

During our Literacy dedicated time, children develop their Reading, Writing and Word Study skills. The text types the Year Four children will be looking closely at this term are; Information Reports, Historical Narratives and Recounts. During writing, the children will use their knowledge of the First Fleet and the content learnt in History and Geography to create these text types.

 

This term in Mathematics, the children will develop their Place Value skills by exploring fractions and decimals. This is something that can easily be discussed at home when sharing or preparing food, as it helps children to relate their learning to real life situations. The children will also study; time, angles, graphing and will continue to develop Times Tables skills.

 

The Year Four History Program will focus on the First Fleet, including reasons for the journey, who travelled to Australia and their experiences following arrival. The children will develop their historical skills by posing questions and identifying different information sources. They will use knowledge to create multiple choice games, this task will see them use their coding skills.

The children will also be developing their ability to code and use robotics with Miss Phoebe.

 

In Science this term, the children will be looking at Earth and Space Sciences. This involves investigation of erosion, weathering, rock formations and soils. Once again, they will develop their investigation and observation skills through experiments.

 

Mathematics

It is important that everybody learn to do some calculations mentally when paper and pencil or a calculator is not handy. Over the next few weeks we will be look at the development of beginning mental math strategies that a parent might help a child learn at home. 

 

Mental math should not be confused with the memorisation of basic mathematics facts — such as knowing the times-tables by heart. While memorising basic facts makes mental math easier, doing mathematics mentally requires both memorised facts and the manipulation (strategies) of numbers and operations in order to solve problems that are much more complex than the simple number facts we can easily memorise. 

 

The following mental math strategies are arranged in general order from the easiest strategies children can learn to perform in their head to more difficult and challenging mental math gymnastics. 

 

STRATEGIES FOR ADDITION
Doing addition problems in your head is probably the best way to start doing mental math. Even young children — 5, 6, and 7 year- olds— can do the easiest strategies below. While the first few may seem trivial to adults, they are a good way for children to begin learning to do mental math. 

 

When the words “hearing” and “saying” are used in these strategies, they mean “hearing in your head” and “saying in your head.” 

 

COUNTING-ON
Counting-on is one of the simple but powerful mental math strategies children can learn and is the easiest for most students—many children figure out this strategy naturally. Counting-on means a child mentally says the biggest number to add, and then counts-up the second number, one (or two) at a time. For example, in the equation 5 + 3, you start with the 5 in your head, and then count up: . . . 6, 7, 8. You might suggest to your children that if they want to add 2 + 6 in their head, they should start with the bigger number, in this case 6, and count up (. . . 7, 8) since, with addition, you can add numbers in any order and get the same answer—order does not matter. This is called the commutative property of addition. 
When mentally counting-on, children and adults often resort to using their fingers to count up (or down), simultaneously counting on their fingers while they count in their heads. If your children use this handy device, let them. It is not harmful if it helps to make counting-on a useful mental math strategy. 
 

Performing Arts - Opening Mass

Last Friday Alex Bao and Cronin Mulvey from our Year Six Leadership Group attended the Opening Mass for the Performing Arts Festival. The Liturgy was a true celebration of the Arts including great choral singing, liturgical dance and drama to make the message of the sharing the Good News . Auxiliary Archbishop Don Sproxton, who concelebrated the Mass with priests from the parish and of the archdiocese, spoke about the importance of the celebration and the coming together of many people worshipping, singing and dancing about the message of Jesus Christ. 

The Performing Arts Festival is a month long festival of days and nights of showcasing talent in the area of dance, drama, music and performance. Our school choir, Year 4 choir, band and individual instrumental performances will participate in this prestigious event.

Feastday of St Martha 29 July

One of the most precious things in life is to have a home where you can go at any time and find people who accept, love, and understand you. Jesus found such a home in Bethany, at the house of a woman named Martha. She welcomed him and served him, and they developed a special bond of friendship.

 

Martha lived with her sister Mary. Like many other pairs of sisters, these two women were different in personality. Martha was energetic and outspoken, while Mary was quiet and reflective. Jesus loved both of them and appreciated the gifts that each one had.
 

The Gospel of Luke records that once, when Jesus was visiting, Martha prepared the meal while Mary sat talking to their visitor. Martha complained that Jesus should tell Mary to help her. Jesus said that because Martha was worrying so much about the work, she did not have time to enjoy being with him and listening to his words.

 

Another time recorded in John’s Gospel, the sisters sent a message to Jesus that their brother, Lazarus, was ill. They knew Jesus would come and cure him; they trusted in his loving care for them. When Jesus finally came, Lazarus had already been dead for four days. As soon as she heard that Jesus was nearby, Martha, a woman of action, went out to meet him, while Mary stayed in the house. In her grief, Martha told Jesus honestly what she had expected from him. Jesus asked her to believe that he was the resurrection and that he had power to give eternal life to all who believe in him. Without really understanding this mystery, Martha trusted Jesus totally and said, “I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one who was to come into this world” (John 11:27). That day Jesus raised her brother Lazarus from the dead, showing that he has power over life and death and power to give eternal life.

 

The home Jesus found in Bethany was not only in the house but in the faithful heart of a woman named Martha.

 

POPE FRANCIS SPEAKS

"Here and now, especially where we are a "little flock" (Luke 12:32), the Lord's disciples are called to live as a community which is the salt of the earth and the light of the world (Mat 5:13-16). We are called to bear witness to a constantly new way of living together in fidelity to the Gospel. Let us not allow ourselves to be robbed of community!

(From The Joy of the Gospel (Evangelii Gaudium) by Pope Francis #92) 

WHY IT IS GOOD TO READ THE GOOD BOOK

Professor John Bergsma, Professor of Theology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio, is visiting Sydney and Perth this week.  Professor Bergsma served as a Calvinist pastor for four years before his conversion to Catholicism in 2001. He is passionate about encouraging Catholics to read the Bible, as he told The Catholic Weekly's Natasha Marsh.

 

Why do you think Catholics do not read their Bibles?

There’s a cultural attitude among many Catholic communities that going to Mass is enough. It’s so sad, because many attend Mass without understanding what’s going on, and as a result they don’t benefit as much spiritually. Sometimes they don’t benefit at all.  For God’s grace or power at Mass, and in the other Sacraments, to really make a difference in your life, there has to be faith and understanding. The understanding comes from reading God’s Word.  Many of us as Catholics have attitudes and lifestyles that don’t agree at all with God’s Word. Because of that, our lives are not blessed, and we seem just as unhappy and dissatisfied with the world as everyone else around us. The answer is to reshape our thinking by reading and memorising God’s Word.

 

How can Catholics be encouraged to read the Bible?

Honey catches more flies than vinegar. I don’t think "guilting" people into reading the Bible is the way to go. But if we can catch the vision for the joy and peace it can bring into our lives, we will want to read Scripture.  My whole approach is to keep the study of the Bible light-hearted and enjoyable. My attitude is that Scripture is a kind of holy playground that God has given his children to explore. It is delightful, inspiring, and sheds light on how we should live in this world.
