School Council Update

With 4 parent member vacancies for school council and 4 nominations, there will not need to be an election. Congratulations to the following parents will join the ASPS School Council from April this year:

  • Jun Yang
  • Mark O'Brien
  • Shaun Cooley
  • Jemima Collins

Having recently approved a new Strategic plan and with the schools IB PYP Evaluation coming up in 2019, it is certainly a busy and exciting time to be joining  school council. It is my pleasure to introduce our newest parent members below.

 

Jun Yang

My name is Jun and I am the proud mum of three boys at ASPS: Ethan Mar in Grade 5, Lachlan in Grade 2 and Rohan in Prep.  Although being a mum keeps me busy, I also work as an Endocrinologist at Monash Health treating patients with hormone disorders, and conduct medical research on the hormonal causes of high blood pressure (as a Scientist at Hudson Institute of Medical Research).  My other commitments include being a Joey Scout leader with 1st Glen Iris, where I enjoy helping young children develop a range of personal and social skills.  I will now relish the opportunity to contribute to the life of ASPS by joining the School Council.  I care a great deal about the quality of children’s education, especially in mathematics and science, health and development.  As a fluent Mandarin speaker I am also interested to see the school's Chinese program succeed.  I am sure that my vision is the same vision shared by all parents - to help bring out the very best in our children through effective learning.

 

Jemima Collins

Hello, I am Jemima and our family joined ASPS in Term 2 last year. I have enjoyed helping in the classroom, canteen and assisting in organizing the 2017 Winter Ball, which prompted me to join the Parents’ Association. My goal is to be a bridge to help PA and School Council work together to ensure overall collaboration and engagement to create a wonderful school community. You will see me around the school yard with my 6yr son - John, 2yr daughter - Elizabeth and a giant ‘puppy’ dog Murphy.

 

Shaun Cooley

Shaun has over 25 years of experience working for international financial institutions across private wealth management, global equities, foreign exchange, mergers and acquisitions, and capital markets.

 

Shaun is currently the Head of Product at JBWere (a private wealth management company) and  held  senior management roles at global investment banks in Europe and Asia before moving to Australia with his family.  Shaun has two kids at Auburn South Primary (Stella, year 4, and Saxon, year 1) and is dedicated to ensuring that all kids have an educational facility that promotes inclusion & well being. 

 

Mark O'Brien

I am the dad of Thomas (2B) and Samuel who will be in Prep in 2019. I am delighted to join the Auburn South Primary School Council where I am looking forward to being able to leverage my skills and contribute to our school community.

I have a background in healthcare and am currently General Manager at Junior Adventures Group a large provider of before and after school care that partners with over 400 private, public and catholic primary schools across Australia and the experience and skills I bring to the council includes operational, financial and governance skills. I have an intimate knowledge of the pressures that schools and school communities face so therefore am well placed to support current council members and the wider school community base to drive innovation and continuous improvement.

 

I am a passionate and hands on dad, and am a firm believer that we have a unique opportunity to build brighter futures through our school curriculum and school community involvement.

I look forward and feel privileged to be part of an already progressive and highly regarded school council.

Prep parents Welcome Evening

This week, all Prep parents will have received an invitation to attend our Prep Parents Welcome Evening in our kitchen garden. This is historically one of the more enjoyable social functions in the year and catering will be provided by our very own SAKG team, karen and Andrea. RSVPs are essential and please return the attached form to the school office by the end of the week.

 

SCHOOLS CLEAN UP AUSTRALIA DAY

Thank you to everyone for helping with Schools Clean Up Australia Day on Friday. We have such a lovely school to be proud of and it’s looking wonderful.

We don’t want the wrappers to pollute the environment or animal’s homes.

Let’s keep it clean and put our rubbish in the bin!

REDUCE your rubbish! Bring nude food – that’s food without wrappers!

We had a visit from Josh Frydenberg (above), the Minister for Environment and Energy on Friday to celebrate our school’s involvement with Clean Up Australia.

Valuables at School

Each year, the school reminds parents and students not to bring valuable items (i.e. special toys, expensive watches and jewelry) to school. There is always a risk associated with bringing these items as the may get damaged or go missing.  As a parent, my children don't take toys to school or kinder as these are items that they play with at home. At ASPS we have fantastic play spaces and equipment for recess and lunch playtimes; there isn't a direct need for children to bring in additional toys.  That said, it will take something serious for me to ban specific items and my preference is that students are empowered to make sensible choices about what they bring to school and how they play with them. Please consider the above note with your children as you make the best choice that will suit them socially while taking care of personal items.

 

In accordance with DET policy, the school does not accept liability for lost or damaged items that are brought to school.

 

Red Cross Fundraiser (Free Dress Day)

Students are invited to wear something red and to bring a gold coin donation to school on Thursday 29 March. Thank you to Lily Brown and a team of her 4A classmates for leading this initiative.

Additional donations can be made via:

 

 

 

Student Action - Shaving Head at ASPS Picnic!

I am excited to bring to your attention some action being taken by one of our Year 4 students, Isabelle Ting. Isabelle is raising money for the Leukaemia Foundation and will be shaving her head as part of the World's Greatest Shave initiative.  I encourage all families to support Isabelle by visiting her fundraising page below and we'll look forward to the great shave-off at next week's picnic!

 

"I am doing the World’s Greatest Shave to give people with blood cancer the emotional and practical support they need.

By shaving my hair I will help support people with cancer by donating my hair to make wigs for those who have lost their hair through treatment. By people sponsoring me I hope to raise money that will help to save some lives and give people hope for a well future.

My fundraising is dedicated to my ‘Aunt’ Jane who had Hodgkin Lymphoma and now is well and thriving, living a wonderfully full life. Also my Aunty Barbara who has breast cancer and lost her hair during treatment. Hopefully my donation will help provide wigs for those who need them."

Registration closing date: Monday 28th May (Only the STS coordinator can register students)    

Entry fees: Individual $8 per entry; Group (maximum 2 students) $15 per entry.

The STS Website www.sciencevictoria.com.au/sts has all the information and guidelines you need about the competition.

 

Be sure to look at the “For Students and Parents” pages and “STS handbook.” Judging day with the exception of the two categories Experimental Research and Creative writing will take place on Saturday 4th August.  This is a unique opportunity for students to shine while presenting their projects to a panel of teachers.

 

You can access guidelines, competition rules and General Information for each section at the front of the handbook.

Year Five Zine Scene

        Zine / noun informal:

                               a small magazine that is produced cheaply by  
                               one person or small group  of people, and is 
                               about a subject they are interested in
                                                                  https;//cambridge.org/dictionary/english/zine
Year 5, Zine scene!
In 2017 the Year 5 teachers ran a zine workshop for their students. The intention of the workshop was to explore the purpose of zines, to read and reflect on existing zines, learn techniques to create zines, and to experiment with layout and design, (e.g. stamping, collage, colour, shading).  Students then created their own masterpieces. Through their zines, students expressed funny, informative and reflective ideas, publishing and sharing works they had written through inquiry and writers workshop.

Unexpectedly, and with short notice, ASPS had an incredible opportunity to participate in the Zine Fair at Melbourne Town on Sunday, February 2nd, 2018.  Clementine, Halle, Polly, Will, Emma C, Ananya, Ari, Sathya, Addison, Jess, Ms Janover, Ms Corrigan, Ms Hollingsworth & Ms Endersby worked tirelessly to gather ASPS zines for the stall. Over 50 zines were sold, with some of the profits used to purchase zines from other stalls for our library.

ASPS was among the stand out stalls, with a State Library representative and a Brunswick Gallery owner both requesting ASPS zines for their respective exhibits. Currently there is a [small] Zine Exhibition in the ASPS library. There are also [some] blank zines for you to take and create your own!

Please feel welcome to come and view the exhibition and if you have made a zine, bring it to the library – we would love to see it!

Parenting Ideas Articles

Let kids off the leash for greater confidence and resilience

By Michael Grose

www.parentingideas.com.au

 

“Did you as a child or teenager enjoy more freedom to move around your neighbourhood than you give to your kids?”

 

I often ask parents this question at my presentations and the answer is usually overwhelmingly affirmative. I then ask:

“Put your hand up if you benefitted from this freedom in any way including developing self-confidence, gaining independence and learning how to solve your own problems.”

Almost every parent present raises a hand.

 

Deep down we know that giving kids more freedom is good for their overall development, yet we so often struggle to give kids the same liberties to roam that many of us enjoyed as children ourselves.

Recently Tim Berryman, principal of Fitzroy Community School, gave a speech urging parents to be brave and give their children more freedom.

 

The speech obviously struck a chord, as more parents in his school now allow their children to travel to school independently, as well as walk to the shops, the park or friends’ homes without an adult.

Bravo to the principal for taking a stand and three cheers to the parents who changed their ways and gave their kids the opportunity to roam away from home without adult supervision.

 

In my book Spoonfed Generation I wrote how it was the edgier escapades – such as climbing walls, exploring drains and building cubbies from scraps scrounged from a nearby wood yard – and not the safe experiences that shaped me and made me less fearful as a child. These types of experiences in unpredictable environments taught me about being resourceful, assessing risk and confronting my fears.

 

I would strongly argue that although I benefited greatly from a very good formal education at school it was these unorganised activities that helped me reach my full potential. Unfortunately, these are not the type of experiences many of today’s children and young people enjoy.

 

Not all risks are the same
There are a number of reasons why today’s generation experience less freedom than previous generations. These include busy after-school schedules leaving less time for wandering and the centralisation of shops and parks reducing opportunities for walking. However it’s the perception that the world is a more dangerous place that seems to be most pertinent. This is despite there being little evidence to suggest that stranger danger is on the rise.

 

The wish to keep kids safe is now paramount for many adults, but it comes at the expense of children’s and young people’s natural developmental need for unpredictable experiences away from constant adult supervision.

 

We need to be careful we don’t throw all risk into the same basket. We need to separate risk-taking in terms of unsafe/unhealthy risks (e.g. playing chicken with cars on busy roads) and safe/developmental risks (e.g. using traffic lights to cross busy roads). It’s evident that children who are exposed to safe risk-taking usually are less fearful, less anxious and more able to take on new challenges and experiences.

 

Parents need to be brave
Perhaps one of the hardest parts of parenting is letting go of our primal need to keep kids safe from pain and harm. The wish to protect is in the DNA of most parents, yet we can’t let that innate desire restrict children’s basic developmental need to explore, to be curious and to pull away from parental protectiveness.

 

As Tim Berryman said so eloquently in his speech, “We don’t need to reflect for long to consider all the disasters that could befall our children in the park, travelling to school or going to the shops. …(But) if we are aware of the cost of this fear, and instead keep it in check, we will help to nurture a more empowered child, laying out the ground for a more empowered adult.”

 

Just as we want our children to be brave and face their fears, we too need to face down some of the unwarranted fears that we have for our children’s safety. Navigating fear is a part of parenting just as it is part of growing up. It makes us feel uncomfortable. But when we face those fears, confidence and competence grows and anxiety dissipates. This principle is just as pertinent for parents as it is for our kids.
