Allow them to wobble

When teaching children to ride a bike we allow them to ‘wobble’. We are nearby ready to catch them if they fall but the ‘wobbling’ is an important part of enabling our children to gain the skills and confidence to ride effectively. We quickly learn that they will always be on ‘training wheels’ unless we allow them to falter a little as part of the process of learning.

 

There are parallels with education. For younger children it is important that parents are walking alongside their children to assist with any significant ‘wobbles’. As students get a little older their independence needs to develop as they grow into young adulthood. We don’t want them to fall but equally we need to teach an increasing sense of responsibility.

 

If a mark is to be queried; homework has been missed; untidy uniform is to be explained or items have been left at home; then the first explanation should be from the secondary student. Obviously with more serious concerns, parental support and engagement is vital but I strongly encourage parents to allow their children to be the first point of contact with the teacher.

 

Over the past few years, all Catholic schools in Western Australia have developed a code of conduct for staff to ensure that interactions with students are within relevant guidelines. It has been a good process at John XXIII College given we have such positive and energetic staff.

 

We have also had initial discussions with the John XXIII College Parents' Association about developing a Code of Conduct for Parents. We receive excellent support from our parent body so it is a fitting time to consider appropriate protocols. We look forward to elaborating in due course.

Be a Good Egg This Easter

We cannot ignore the fact that there is as much slavery in the world today, as there was before, or perhaps more – said Pope Francis.

 

Can’t find slavery-free Easter eggs in your supermarket?
Ten years ago there was almost no slavery-free chocolate in our supermarkets in Australia. Now, because of public pressure and consumer demands, most supermarkets will sell some. 

 

There is now slavery-free chocolate available in so many places.
It tastes delicious and is no more expensive than other chocolate. Try your leading / local supermarkets.

Get on board!  When you go to your local supermarket, look for chocolate that has one of these three symbols. If you can’t find any, ask the manager if they stock any.

Australians spent around $210 million on Easter chocolate last year.
This year it will be about the same, or more. Companies will produce what we ask for. Please use your buying power and purchase slavery-free chocolate. You can make a difference to the world, and to the lives of the enslaved children who are forced to pick the cocoa beans used in a lot of chocolate.

Please buy and eat only slavery-free Easter eggs and chocolate this Easter and help change this tragedy.

French students celebrate La Chandeleur

On Monday 1 April, the Year 7 French students had a special cultural lesson to find out about the French celebration of La Chandeleur.


Students learnt about the early pagan origins of the festival up to it being declared a Christian religious event by the Pope in the Vth Century. Students discovered the origins and superstitions linked to the celebration before having a go at flipping crepes themselves and eating them! The Year 7s finished the class with some games to help us learn the key ingredients of crepes in French.


Many thanks to Madame Charly and Madame Leckey for this wonderful lesson and for making the French classes so much fun!

Volunteers needed to help at the College Musical ‘Mary Poppins’ - 30 April to 4 May

At John XXIII College, our community of students, Alumni, family, parents and friends are a vital part of the success of so many of our College events and this generosity is truly appreciated.


The College Musical is one of the highlights of the school year and once again we are calling for volunteers to assist with the smooth running of this much-loved event.


This year’s musical will consist of six performances - running for five evenings from Tuesday 30 April to Saturday 4 May at 7:00pm with an additional matinee performance on Saturday 4 May at 2:00pm. We need several volunteers for each performance. You can volunteer for just one performance or several. We only ask that you do not volunteer for the performance you are attending, as we want you to enjoy the performance.


Volunteers are needed in two areas:
Front of House
We need two adult volunteers at each performance to cover the smooth running of our sales and ticketing. Volunteers will be responsible for selling any unsold seats at each performance and managing the attendance list. There will be a team of student volunteers to assist with ushering people to their seats.
For the evening performances, Front of House volunteering duties commence at 6:40pm and should be completed by 7:10pm. For the matinee performance, we would need volunteers from 1.40pm to 2.10pm.


Intermission
During intermission we serve a variety of snacks, and we run a bar and tea & coffee station. Six adult volunteers are needed for each performance to help with our hospitality service.


Intermission at the evening performance runs from about 8.15pm to 8.30pm, so we ask our volunteers to arrive by 8:00pm to help set up, and also stay on for a short while to help pack away at the end of intermission. For the matinee, volunteers should arrive by 3:00pm and will be done by 3.45pm approximately.


If you can help out at one or more of these performances, please respond to fomad@johnxxiii.edu.au with the following information:
• Your full name
• Mobile number and email address
• Date/s you are available to volunteer (please specify if you are volunteering for the Saturday matinee)
• Whether you wish to assist with Intermission, Front of House or both.

Politics and Law Guest Speaker

Year 12 Politics and Law students received a visit from the current Federal Minister for Human Services and Digital Transformation, Michael Keenan. Minister Keenan spoke about his life and position in politics while students were given an opportunity to ask a range of insightful questions. Students were eager to find out about Minister Kennan’s role while he was Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Counter Terrorism and the interesting policies created. It was a memorable incursion for all students, particularly considering the current state of politics and looming federal election.

House Volleyball

After five rounds of matches, the finals for House Volleyball were completed this week.  Most games were closely contested, with a number of the results being decided by one or two points. It was fantastic to see four different Houses represented in the play-off for 1st and 2nd. It was extremely close for the placings between 2nd and 6th, however St Louis House were dominant this year winning all three competitions with some excellent volleyball skills and teamwork on display. Well done to all students who represented their Houses and a special congratulations to the St Louis students. Thanks to Sport Captains Jamie and Michael for their efforts in organising the competition.

 

Results:

  • Years 7/8                1st St Louis           2nd Koolyangarra
  • Years 9/10             1st St Louis           2nd Campion
  • Years 11/12          1st St Louis           2nd Loyola
  • Overall                  1st St Louis           2nd Campion

Maths Week

Secondary students have had a busy week celebrating Mathematics. From fun problem solving activities to the more formal Computational and Algorithmic Competition and lunchtime activities every day there has been an opportunity for every Secondary students to participate in some way. The excitement at Mingo on Thursday in the Pavilion lead by Mr Yates and Mr Gallagher and the quiet concentration of building Hanoi towers on the Chapel lawn provided a positive way to spend a lunch break. Budding Year 7 Mathematicians Maya Mintz and Xavier Gordon impressed the judges by their ability to quote the decimal places of Pi, and Mr Williams drew a huge crowd with his minty wrapper measuring. We finished the week off with the annual Interhouse Maths Week Grand Final where a representative from each Homeroom worked as a team in Houses to solve a list of Math puzzles, crack a code and open the lock to success.

 

Year 12 Coaching

The College has introduced a coaching program for our Year 12 students. Coaching is defined as ‘a process focused on developing a relationship between two parties that is future orientated for improved outcomes in a particular area.’ The program is designed to provide every Year 12 student with the opportunity to meet individually with an experienced teacher to discuss their overall academic progress. The meetings will focus on celebrating ‘successes’ and identifying goals for further improvement. Students will be coached through the process of goal setting, identifying and prioritising specific strategies, creating a timeline for implementation as well as the skill of self-reflection. The program is not designed to be course specific, rather to encourage students to review their overall academic progress and study habits. The aim of the program is facilitate student led conversations focused on improving their transferable skills and thus increase their academic achievement.

 

Further information and an overview of the logistics of the program will be provided to Year 12 students next week.

 

If you have any queries regarding the program please don’t hesitate to contact Mr Luke Bostelman, Year 12 Assistant Deputy Principal or me at the College.

Around The Primary

Dear Parents

This week our Primary community gathered together to farewell Mr Alderman at a special Assembly. Mr Alderman has worked at the College for 23 years as a Physical Education teacher.

 

He has made a wonderful contribution to the Primary School over these years. Mr Alderman has brought a wealth of experience to this role and made a significant difference to the students in his care and their teachers.

 

We wish Mr Alderman a happy retirement and thank him most sincerely for his dedicated service. Mr Alderman you will be greatly missed!

 

 

We are also going to miss Ms Karin Ilich (1B Teacher) and Mrs Lisa Ferraro (1G Teacher) as they are both commencing Maternity Leave. We are so happy for them and really look forward to meeting their special little additions next term.

 

In Term 2 we warmly welcome onto our staff, Ms Maggie Crowley (1B Teacher), Mrs Sonia Thomas (1G Teacher) and Mr Steven Williams (PE Teacher).

 

On a different note, I will be taking four weeks Long Service Leave at the beginning of next term. The Primary Assistant Principals, Ms Allen kylie.allen@cewa.edu.au and Miss Joyce jodi.joyce@cewa.edu.au are happy to be contacted if you have any concerns. I will return to work on Monday 27 May and be ready and refreshed for the remainder of the busy term.

 

Thank you to the many parents who have already booked a time to meet with class teachers. These information sharing meetings are a valuable opportunity for teachers to share information about each child’s academic and social development. Please feel that you can always approach me with any questions or concerns you might have.

 

We hope many parents can join us for our Easter Reflections next week (further details below).

 

Kind regards,

Holy Week

As Easter falls in the school holidays, our Reflections for Holy Week will be held next week.  On Wednesday 10 April, all students will be active participants in the Palm Sunday and Last Supper Reflections.  This Easter Reflection will begin at 11.30am.

 

It is hoped that students will be able to bring a palm from home. These palms need to be of a manageable size to enable the students to carry and gently wave the leaves as part of the Reflection.

 

On Thursday 11 April at 9.00am the Year 6 students will lead the Good Friday Reflection. Parents are welcome to join us for both of these prayerful times.   

Money Tree

Our Money Tree is looking fabulous in the garden!
 

Next week will be the last opportunity for classes to place a leaf on the tree. We look forward to receiving any final donations next week so all the coins can be counted over the holidays. Next term we will be able to inform the whole school community of our fundraising success for Project Compassion. Once again, we sincerely thank you for your generosity.

'Roar and Snore' Zoo Camp

The Year 5B Zoo camp was a great experience and enjoyed by all.

 

The afternoon started off with an activity called “Race to Save.” Students got into their groups and went trekking around the zoo to find highly sought-after clues.

 

By 6pm we were all ready to be fed and rehydrated and there were smiles all around after we had shared a tasty meal together.

 

The evening was jam packed with lots of learning, becoming experts in endangered animal species and we also learnt how to provide enrichment activities for the different animals living at the zoo.

 

After that, the students were ready for the much anticipated “Night Tour.” Our groups had some awesome “up close” experiences with the animals. For one group, the lions were a real treat and the second group had a very close encounter with the zebras! By the end of the tour everyone was ready to curl up into their sleeping bags and get some sleep.

 

The next day was spent exploring the different areas of the zoo. The students were very privileged and got to experience the “Eye to Eye” encounter with the giraffes. They also experienced a day in the life of a Zookeeper and students were able to enter the Red Panda enclosure and help with the daily chores of maintaining the enclosure. Some students got very close to the extremely friendly Red Panda!  In fact, there was an extremely friendly Red Panda that got up very close and tried to give a student a hug!

 

The Zoo camp ended with some time spent relaxing on the grassed area and enjoying lunch with friends. All in all, we had a roaring good time!

 

 

Language Update

Our Year 3 students have been learning how to write hiragana and they had so much fun using the calligraphy brushes!

The boys’ team won four games, drew one game and lost one game. Congratulations to all our competitors on their effort and sportsmanship displayed throughout the day.

 

Thank you to parents who came along and supported the teams and to Ms Ruth O’Donnell for managing and coaching the girls’ team.

Year 11 Drama performance

Year 11 Drama students during their recent performance of the play ‘Cosi’ by Louis Nowra. Drama not only engages with the creative side of the brain, it enhances students’ artistic and creative abilities and gives them a better understanding of themselves and their world. Drama fosters self-discipline, confidence and team work and develops skills in interpreting, researching, negotiating, problem solving and decision making. 

 

 

Magis

John XXIII has competed very successfully in three important gifted and talented programs in the past week, Creative Edge Challenge at Curtin University on Saturday, the second round of WA Debating leagues on Tuesday, and the prestigious da Vinci Decathlon at Winthrop Hall, UWA on Tuesday and Wednesday.

 

At the Creative Edge Challenge this year we fielded a team of four, Charlie Richards from Year 12, Nick Brennan from Year 11, and Bella Pether and Akash Parekh from Year 10.  The team performed extremely well in the three challenges set, represented the College admirably, and were very positive in their feedback on this exciting event. Tuesday night’s debating also saw many fine performances and a 6-3 win/loss ratio on a night where two of our teams had byes. Congratulations to all teams and coaches/managers.  A special Magis debating seminar breakfast for all interschool debaters will be held next Wednesday at 7:30am in the library. After the breakfast students will divide intro two groups, novice and advanced, for instruction from WA Debating league representatives.

 

For the first time John XXIII College fielded a team in all five year groups from Years 7 to 11 at the da Vinci Decathlon, held at Winthrop Hall this year.  It is a difficult and fascinating competition with the ten areas including some complex challenges, but all teams responded well and participated with great enthusiasm and talent.  About 400 students competed each day and a full report will be presented next week when results are received, as time constraints limited the announcements on the day.  However highlights included the Year 11 victory in the Creative Producers section and Year 9 winning the cartography.   Congratulations on all 40 John XXIII College students on representing your College, and warmest thanks to the following key teachers who gave up their time to assist with preparing students for the event;  Ms O’Loughlin, Ms Davies,  Ms Devanand, Mr Cotter, Ms Ball, and Mr Carello. Special thanks also to Ms Holmes and Ms Devanand for their assistance on the day.

 

With Creative Edge and Da Vinci completed we now move to the World Scholar’s Cup and two Magis-run College events, John XXIII College Public Speaking and Creative Writing (short stories).  Teams are now being finalised for the World Scholar’s event, and it is expected that we will send even more teams this year to the WA round in Term 2, the Global round in Term 3 and the Tournament of Champions at Yale University, USA, in Term 4. 

 

Posters and information have now been circulated about the Public Speaking and short story competitions, which are open to all John XXIII students from Years 7-12.  Entries for the Creative Writing must be received by the first Friday in Term 2, whilst Public Speaking nomination forms are now available, and nominations will be accepted up to the first Thursday of next term.  A public speaking seminar in week one, Term 2 will then be followed by Heats held at lunchtimes in week two and the grand final featuring the top three speakers in each year group in the GBLT at 7:00pm on Tuesday 11 May (week 3).

Rowing Club

South West Head of the River Regatta

Sunday 31 March 2019

 

This is an annual Country Regatta which the John XXIII College Rowing club attends along with local country schools; Bunbury Catholic College and Bunbury Grammar.  It is held on the beautiful Bunbury foreshore fronting the Bunbury Rowing Club who host this event.

 

What a way to end the boys summer rowing season and commence the girl’s season.  It was a glorious weekend at Bunbury commencing with the family and rowers dinner on Saturday night, hosted by the John XXIII College Rowing Club, where 200 plus attendees enjoyed the balmy evening at the Bunbury rowing club foreshore.  A relaxed and social evening for all, but early to bed as at daybreak the preparation for racing was to begin.

 

The day dawned glorious with a slight wind rippling on the river – excellent rowing conditions.  The first race started with the bang of the starters gun and the crews were off.   The JTC crew finished strongly – and started the Regatta the way our rowers wanted to finish, with many wins on the board.   With our largest ever Bunbury regatta rowing contingent of 70 rowers we had an opportunity to do extremely well.  And that we did with a swag of medals, winning the penultimate final Open Mixed Eight race and the prestigious Ronald Walter Prosser Cup, as well as the ergo competition and the overall club points competition and trophy.

 

It was a victorious Regatta for the JTC Rowing Team and so rewarding for the girls and the boys to row together.  The camaraderie and support between the team members was terrific to see.  With that and the support of the Bunbury Rowing Club who contributed boats and facilities, Bill Kaye Photography for the amazing photos,  the coaches who kept the rowers on time and on track, the parents and friends who cheered and supported, and lastly the rowers themselves who competed so well and graciously accepted medals, all contributed to making the event one to remember and one not to be missed in future years.  A special thanks goes to Rob Thomas for all his behind the scenes work organising the team and facilities for the Regatta, and his time spent coaching and motivating our rowers to do their best.

 

Most importantly, it was so rewarding just to see all the  students together enjoying their time in Bunbury and rowing with such passion and commitment after many weeks of tough and early training mornings, having such a ball and savouring the added thrill of victory - which is something to be celebrated by us all.

Does your inbox spark joy?

Written by Family Zone Team

To be distracted is to be human. But in today’s digital world, the opportunities for distraction have exploded - while our capacity to deal with them seems to diminish by the day. 

 

In his new book Digital Minimalism, computer scientist Cal Newport proposes a new battleplan in the quest to slay the dragon of digital distraction.

 

Distraction itself is nothing new. Ever since Homer - whose wily hero Odysseus plugged his ears with beeswax and lashed himself to the mast to resist being lured off-course by the call of the Sirens - human beings have struggled to stay on-task.

 

But the ancient Greeks had it easy, at least by comparison with our world. With no electricity, and limited reading matter, even the alphabet was regarded as a new-fangled technology (and a potentially disastrous one, in the view of many - Socrates included!).

 

Social life was conducted face-to-face, as it has been throughout all of human history up to the mid 19th century, with the invention of the wireless telegraph and, later, the telephone.

Samuel F.B. Morse, the inventor of the telegraph and the code named in his honour, sent the world’s first text message in 1844. It read “What Hath God Wrought?” - an appropriate status update for the dawning of the digital age.

Fast forward to fake news, live-streamed human massacres, widespread smartphone addiction, babies who swipe before they can crawl, data mining and identity theft, primary school kids watching porn and a worldwide obsession with “likes” and “followers.” Now more than ever,  Morse’s question reverberates with renewed relevance. But enough with the questions, already. How about some answers?

 

Subtitled “Choosing life in a noisy world,” Newport’s book Digital Minimalism makes the case for a philosophy of technology use that revolves around the deceptively complex notion of “enough.” (And yes, he has been called the Marie Kondo of the digital world.)

 

Practical tips like turning off notifications, putting your phone on “Do Not Disturb” while you sleep or indulging in the occasional, short-lived digital detox are all well and good. But what we really need is an entirely new relationship with our technology - one that puts at the centre a state of mind he calls “Deep Work” (and you and I might simply call “concentrating on one thing at a time”).

 

Newport defines Deep Work as “the activity of focusing without distraction on a cognitively demanding task … when you’re really locked into doing something hard with your mind.”

 

Recent research has shown that even a quick glance at a notification or update can significantly reduce performance on such tasks. (Writing blog posts very much included, in case you were wondering.)

 

“Every time you switch your attention from one target to another and then back again, there’s a cost,” Newport explains. “This switching creates an effect that psychologists call attention residue, which can reduce your cognitive capacity for a non-trivial amount of time before it clears.

 

“If you constantly make ‘quick checks’ of various devices and inboxes, you essentially keep yourself in a state of persistent attention residue, which is a terrible idea if you’re someone who uses your brain to make a living." The implications for teaching and learning in today's digital classrooms are obvious - and dire.

 

Among Newport’s other pillars of digital minimalism, he advises:

 

Embrace boredom - If you always whip your phone out the second boredom rears its unattractive head, your brain, he says, will inevitably connect boredom with the need for instant stimulation. And that means when it’s time to think deeply - a task that’s usually deficient in moment-to-moment novelty - your brain will rebel.

 

Quit social media - It’s not as hard as it looks, Newport insists. (He’s never had a social media account of any kind himself, so it’s not entirely clear how he knows that.) Otherwise, you risk “a digital life that’s so cluttered with thrumming, shiny knots of distraction pulling at our attention and manipulating our moods that we end up a shell of our potential.”

 

Drain the shallows - “Shallow work” is Newport’s term for digital admin stuff - emails, most notoriously - that can suck up the time we would otherwise spend working deeply. He advises aspiring digital minimalists to aggressively reduce the time spent on such tasks, to make room for what really matters in work and … that other thing.

 

What do you call it again? Oh yeah. Life.

Liturgy

Community Liturgy

Thank you to the students in Year 8 who prepared our Mass this morning.

 

Year 7 students will be preparing the first Community Liturgy for Term 2, on Friday 3 May.  Year 7 families are very welcome, especially those who are new to the College.  If you have not previously attended Mass or are not Catholic, just come to the Chapel at 8:00am.  There are no reserved seats or special places and all the responses are on a PowerPoint.   

 

Community Liturgy summary

  • Where:                 College Chapel
  • Time:                     8:00 – 8:30 am
  • When:                   every Friday in term time

This year the great feast of Easter falls during the middle weekend of the school holidays.  For Christians around the world it is the highlight of the liturgical year. Parishes will celebrate special liturgies, commencing with Palm Sunday the weekend before. 

 

Many families like to celebrate these liturgies as part of their Easter festivities, and some of our local parishes have sent details of their services Holy Week. This information is also on the College website – and will be updated over the next week.

 

Sacrament Program
FAQS

 

What happens in the Sacrament Program?

Children in Years 3, 4 and 6 prepare to celebrate, respectively, the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation in their own ‘home’ parish. 

 

How are the children prepared?

The Religion curriculum in Catholic schools includes a unit of work on the sacrament in the relevant year level. Once the students have completed the unit of work they are awarded a certificate, which is required by the Parish.

 

Some parishes provide additional classes for students attending Catholic schools.

Last, but not least, parents are the children’s first teachers in Faith. The program in the Perth Archdiocese is ‘family-focused, parish-based and Catholic school supported.’

 

When will the sacraments be celebrated?

Each parish is different; refer to your local parish for dates and times. Some information from local parishes is provided below – and you can find more detail on the College website.  

 

Why are there differences from parish to parish?

Each parish is a unique Faith community and the Parish Priest responds to the needs of the parish, within the context of the wider Church. No two parishes are the same – so there will be some variation in how the parish Sacrament Program is administered. As a regional College we are enriched by families from a diversity of parishes.

 

If I have a child in Year 3, 4 or 6, when should I enroll in my parish program?

Parents are reminded to enroll their children in parish Sacrament programs as soon as possible

GOOD NEWS for the 5th Sunday in Lent

John 8:1-11

The reflection for this Sunday’s Gospel is part of a homily by Jesuit priest, Fr Richard Leonard. Fr Richard Leonard SJ is the Director of the Australian Catholic Office for Film and Broadcasting, is a member of the Australian Catholic Media Council and is author of Preaching to the Converted, Paulist Press, New York, 2006.

 

There is a tough phrase at the end of the Gospel we have just heard; 'Go and sin no more.' It's like a sting in the tail, standing in contrast to the compassion of Jesus in his encounter with the woman. Yet, on closer inspection, it is the most important phrase in the story. And that's saying something because this dramatic event is the only one in the Gospel where Jesus confronts sexual sin, where only the woman is dragged from the scene of the crime to answer the charge of adultery. Is it any wonder that in some early manuscripts of John's Gospel this story was left out, its authorship questioned? The dangerous memory of Jesus' compassion toward the woman was too strong in the minds of John's community for it to be excluded, however, and so it remains as an inspired text for us to make our own. It is sometimes very important to hear Jesus say to us, especially in the area of our sexuality, 'I do not condemn you.'

 

So often, however, we want Jesus to leave it at that. But Jesus goes further. He tells it as it is. If any of us want life and want it to the full, we have to stop doing the destructive things that get us into trouble in the first place. It does not matter if it is drinking, gambling, eating, working, stealing, sexual dysfunction, being into pornography, being violent at home or any other type of obsessive compulsive behaviour, there is little point in being sorry for the consequences of our weaknesses and not changing the pattern of behaviour that leads us to ruin each time.

 

Twelve step programs enshrine the wisdom of today's Gospel in how they help us to own up to the destructive behaviour of our lives and yet give us hope to live beyond our worst moments.

 

Steps four to ten say:

 

Step 4. I have made a searching and fearless moral inventory of myself.

 

Step 5. I have admitted to God and to another the exact nature of my wrongs.

 

Step 6. I am entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

 

Step 7. Humbly ask God to remove my shortcomings.

 

Step 8. Made a list of all persons I had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.

 

Step 9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible except where to do so would injure them or others.

 

Step 10. Continued to take personal inventory and when I was wrong promptly admitted it.

 

The thing I like best about these is that they are pro-active. They alert us to the fact that the best pathway to know healing and forgiveness is not to be passive, but to be active and admit our own faults and work to heal them. Some of us may have been given a tough hand from life's deck of cards, but we do not have to be passive victims, never able to changes the cycles of destructive behaviour. If the steps work and we trust today's Gospel then we can be happy, healed and forgiven because we heal and forgive others.

 

Jesus bestows great dignity on the woman by saving her from being condemned to death, but even more so he knows that it does not have to be like this and so challenges her to turn her life around.

 

May we hear the same challenge in this final week of Lent. No matter what we have ever done, sexually or otherwise, we are greater than our worst moments. Jesus loves us enough not to condemn us, but to give us the Eucharist so that we might find the strength and hope to stop doing the things that destroy us and to live a life that leads to peace and joy.

Health

Meningococcal disease information

Meningococcal disease is caused by bacteria (not by a virus), and transmitted via mucus or saliva. Meningococcal bacteria can live harmlessly in our throat and nose. Around 20% of people will be carrying these bacteria at any one time without ever becoming ill (‘healthy carriers’).

 

There are many different strains of meningococcus – the most common in Australia are B and C.

The bacteria are spread by activities such as sneezing, coughing, intimate kissing, and sharing food and drinks. Environments where people are in close contact, such as day-care centres, school camps, parties and nightclubs, make it easier for the bacteria to spread. However the bacteria only live for a short time outside the body – and even if you pick them up, it doesn’t mean you’ll become ill. The danger only occurs if you pick up a strain you’re not immunised against, or don’t have any natural immunity to – or if your immune system has for some reason become weakened and cannot cope.

 

The bacteria do not survive more than a few seconds in the environment, so cannot be picked up from surfaces or objects that have been contaminated by the infected person’s respiratory secretions.

 

Precautions to take:

  • Remember it is important to practice good hand and cough hygiene.

Also Don’t share:

  • Food, dips, ice-cream
  • Drinks, bottles, straws
  • Lipstick or lip gloss
  • Toothbrushes
  • Cigarettes, mouth guards, musical instrument mouth pieces

Also

  • Don’t suck the end of a shared pen/pencil
  • Don’t suck baby’s dummy before putting it in baby’s mouth
  • Watch out for toddlers sucking and sharing toys.

 

Please check Information attached about Meningococcal Disease and Meningococcal vaccines available from Department of Health.

Request for additional stops 

We appreciate all the feedback we have received from parents and guardians in relation to our private bus charter service.

 

We are currently still working through all the feedback we have received with Horizons West. We had hoped to have this finalised earlier, however this is taking longer than we originally anticipated.

 

We will come back to families soon with an update on what changes we have been able to implement and will most likely start the new routes at the start of Term 2.
