Principal's Report

A big thank you....

On behalf of the school community, particularly our Yr 6 students, I would like to send a hearty thank you to the 2017 Graduation Committee  for organising a hugely succesful Trivia Night.

Kylie Henry led the charge on the night as Quizmaster, with Richard spruiking prizes and running competitions.  The room was a buzz of laughter, conversation, food and thinking as we answered question after question.  It was a close call in the end (unfortunately my table came 5th) and a great night was had by all.

 

A key part of the night's success was the meticulous planning and efforts in the weeks and months prior.  Kylie Van Beelan co-ordinated the team and together the Graduation Committee really came through.

 

Thank you to Kylie Van Beelan, Michelle Whitford, Kylie Henry, Richard Henry, Nicole Long,  Narelle Richardson, Kristy Way, Mel Woodworth and Amy Davis for the tremendous effort you put into making the night so enjoybale.  Your efforts raised over $4000 for the school to put toward this year's graduation and other projects.  Thank you.

 

Thank you also to our sponsors, you made the night possible.  Please checkout the large list of sponsors at the end of this newsletter.  These business have a great community mindset, supporting our school and I encourage you to show your appreciation to them in return.

2018 Parent Contributions

 

School Council and our Finance Committee have finalised our Parent Contribution requests.  These will come out in the next week.  We have been able to keep the requests at the same amount as 2017 - no increase in contributions from parents.  We work hard each year to provide as much notice as possible to support families in preparing to meet the expenses associated with schooling.  If you have any concerns regarding meeting any expenses associated with your child at school, please do not hesitate to speak with me.  We can always work out an arrangement to suit your circumstances.

New Sponsor for our Kilsyth Basketball Teams

 

We have a new sponsor for our KPS afterschool basketball teams.  A wonderful KPS family run business has sponsored our teams for new basketball tops.  They have donated over $1000 to provide new tops for our players.  Such a generous contribution!   THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!

Building Works

A series of ramps and other minor building works will be installed over the next six weeks or so.  We are very excited to have the opportunity to have these funded by the Department of Education and look forward to the great improvements they will make to our school and it's accessibility. 


During the works, certain areas of the school will be fenced off to maintain safety as the workman complete the job.  I ask everyone to respect the boundaries of these fences and to work together as we strive to keep disruption to the school and yard to a minimum.

2018 Enrolments and Planning

It isclose to the time when schools begin to finalise their planning for next year.  If you know anyone who is interested in enrolling in our school for 2018, please encourage them to contact the office for a tour and a meeting with me.  We have a number of new students ready to begin at KPS in the new year and are ready welcome many more.

Whole-School Production 

'Captain Kelly's Diamond!' 

Just under two weeks until all of the students will be dancing, singing and performing on Mt Lilydale's Centennial Hall stage! It has been fantastic seeing the Seniors take on the responsibilities of lead speaking roles in the production. They have been doing a wonderful job rehearsing and learning their lines. 

The rest of our students have been doing an excellent job in learning their dances. They are all very nervous and excited to perform in front of their parents and friends on the night of the production.

Foundation News

Production is coming...

Thank you to everyone for their cooperation with getting our costumes organised.  It feels quite real now that we are practising with our hats on! Notices and Flexibuzz notifications will be sent in the coming week regarding arrangements and finer details.  We will be having dress rehearsals in the days leading up to the 20th and on the day we will be catching the bus to the theatre for a whole school dress rehearsal.  We are getting very excited about it! We hope you've bought your family tickets!  Here is the link if you need to purchase

We Are Learning To... (WALT)
 

We've been working hard on developing our number knowledge and counting skills. Knowing numbers to 20 seems quite a simple concept. However, this involves diving further into exploring language around two-digit numbers such as before, after, more than and less than.  Students have practised skills with subitising concepts which involves automatically recognising numbers without counting them.

In Reading, we have begun exploring Literacy CAFE. The CAFE menu breaks each component—Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Expanding vocabulary—into significant strategies that support each goal. Posted on the classroom wall  it serves as a visual reminder of whole-class instruction as well as individual student goals.  Some students have a goal within the Comprehension component.  They are focusing on becoming more confident with drawing on text specific vocabulary to retell or summarise events from the book.  Others are focussing on reading for meaning, blending sounds and rereading and others are focussing on beginning and ending sounds.
We are building up to writing an information report!  At this stage we have been exploring features of non-fiction books and reports.  Ask your child what they will find in a non-fiction book and a fiction book (it's confusing that non-fiction doesn't mean not true!).   

Next week we will be sending through Seesaw updates.  Seesaw is our online portfolio of students' work.  Stay tuned for updates in relation to maths, reading and writing. This will be either a photo shot or a brief video.  We encourage you to discuss this learning experience with your child.  We will also be sharing our learning goals with you!

Next week

On Tuesday we have:

* Responsible Pet Ownership session - this is just for our class! Students will learn how to interact and care for dogs in a safe and responsible ways.  Yes we get to meet a real dog! It's fun and informative for our students to further develop their knowledge of pets in the community.

*Whole school TRIBES day which includes our Health & PE activities including our COLOUR RUN!  If you haven't already done this, please head to www.myprofilepage.com.au to set up your fundraising page!  We will be running down at Elizabeth Bridge after recess and we are very excited!! We hope you can join us for the fun.... and mess!  
 

Wednesday is the Kinder to School Transition session! Please spread the word with sibling families.  We look forward to seeing many of our 2018 parents and students join us at 2.30pm.

 

Friday is the school disco! 6pm - 7.15pm!  I will be out of the classroom on Friday for my Term 4 planning day. I can't believe I'm planning for the last 11 weeks of the school year! If you don't have a Working With Children Check and you would like to come on our excursion to the beach in December, I strongly advise you to process this online over the holidays.  You can produce your receipt at the office which is suffice until your card arrives (they can take a while!)

Personal & Social Development

Our students are collaborating so well together throughout the school day. I love hearing the play dates that take place outside of school and positive interactions that they can build their skills.  Part of the Victorian Curriculum requires us to report on these interactions.  Recognising and expressing emotions, developing resilience,  relationships and collaboration are all areas in which we focus our knowledge and skill based learning.  Students engage in Cooperative Play experiences twice a week to practise and develop social skills.  We have also worked on resilience activities and building a positive mindset. Providing social opportunities for your child is a great learning experience for these skills to be maintained and developed, especially as we prepare our students for Junior School!

 

2 weeks to go...

Kylie, Jenny and I are looking forward to the remaining couple of weeks with our lovelies!  It will be a quick lead up to the production and a wonderful showcase from our students.

Thank you to all our families for their continued effort to support the learning and development of this wonderful cohort of students.  We really do love what we do xxx 

 

Junior School News

TRIBES Night

On Friday the 1st of September Junior school boarded the TRIBES Night bus, we sang and said goodbye to our parents. We spent the next hour playing games outside, taking heaps of snaps at the photo booth, doing word searches and creating little yarn monsters. We took part in a feast of pizza, hot chips and icy poles. By this point we were all very excited to go on our night walk around the school, so we put on our big jackets, beanies, and grabbed our torches. We wandered in and out of bounds, right around the school grounds! We then said goodbye to the grade ones and the grade twos got into their pajamas and settled in for a movie. The Secret Life of Pets was playing, and we did not hear a peep from them until it was bedtime! 

The grade twos were a delight, they went to bed when they were asked and nearly slept the whole night through!! 

Thank you to all of Junior School for being so wonderful on our TRIBES night adventure. We all had a great time. 

 

Production

The whole school production is less than two weeks away! Junior school has been working really hard practicing our dances.  We have been practicing with Jess the choreographer and back in our classroom. We now have our stage positions and we are working on perfecting every step. Miss Vaughan has been rehearsing daily with the senior students.

Just a reminder that we need student costumes in by this Friday ready for our whole school rehearsals.

Also, there are still tickets available to purchase online. Bring friends and family to watch our fantastic production.

Literacy

Junior school has been focusing on information reports over the last few weeks. We have spent lots of time looking at different sorts of information reports and have started researching topics using laptops, iPads and a range of books. The students have been finding lots of interesting information and have really enjoyed sharing it with the class.

Middle School News

2 Weeks to go and so much to do!

Another term is absolutely flying by! We’ve achieved so much in eight short weeks!

 

Our school production rehearsals are going gangbusters and the students are all refining their performances. They are all so committed to their performances and we couldn’t be prouder of them. If you haven’t already sent your child’s costume we would love to have it ASAP please. The more organised we are, the better we like it. 

A very special mention to Wendy, who has given up lots of time and mentored some students to paint the most spectacular backdrops!

 

This term we have been studying Australian explorers. We are aiming to bring the unit of learning together by filming short iMovies to showcase learning. Each student will bring home a note explaining more fully what this will entail in terms of simple costumes. The students are really excited to become filmmakers!

 

In Writing we’ve been doing some fantastic things! In the first half of the term students learnt about different poetry forms and then made a PowerPoint presentation of some favourite original pieces. If you’d like to send a USB stick in Mrs Hubbard, Miss Rennick or Mrs Seemann the presentation can be transferred for you to keep. Lately the students have been learning about procedural texts and have been exploring both the written and oral forms. Students have written their own and deconstructed others to study the structure. They’ve had the opportunity to play barrier games and follow instructions without looking at their partner’s work. Students have built constructions and made pretend pizzas. It’s been a lot of fun!

 

Maths has seen lots of open-ended tasks while the concept of measurement has been explored in all its forms. Students have been out and about measuring the length and area of just about everything in the school. Even feet have been measured! They’ve built structures to explore volume and capacity too.

 

We’re looking forward to the last two weeks of term. It’s going to be absolutely jam packed and busy but filled with lots of great learning experiences. The first to kick off the last two weeks will be Hooptime tomorrow. That’s going to be fantastic!

 

Yours in Learning

Senior School News

Hooptime

Our day at the local Kilsyth Basketball Centre last Friday the 1st of September was a great day out.   ALL of teams that we put forward were successful. Our very own Kilsyth Knicks won the main Round Robin, took out the Future Stars title, and now have the opportunity to go through to the next divisional stage. Congratulations to all the teams that participated and a massive thankyou to our awesome parent helpers, Nicole Long, Sharon Hibbard, Sharon Sticht and Kristy Way.  We also appreciate and thank all the parents who were able to make it along for the day to support our kids!

 

Colour Run Day

Our Kilsyth Colour Run will be next Tuesday the 12th of September.  The Students will run around Elizabeth Bridge during the morning session.  We are looking forward to this fun event – feel free to come down! After the colour run, we have our TRIBES day activities, which should be a blast too.

Production

As the production nears, our students have been busy preparing. At the moment we would strongly encourage you to support your child, particularly if they have a speaking role – this could be as simple as getting them to practise to you on the way to school etc.  Our students with speaking roles should all know their lines without the assistance of scripts. If they cannot do this, they will need to PRACTISE! PRACTISE! PRACTISE!  Also, ALL costumes should have been handed in to your child’s classroom teacher by now.  If for whatever reason you have not done this, could you please make sure it is in ASAP.

Graduation

Firstly, I will start by saying a massive thankyou to Kylie Van Beelen, Kylie Henry, Nicole Long and all the other people who helped to organise the KPS Trivia night.  We raised a lot of money on the night and a great time was had by all! As the date nears for graduation, more information will be provided for this important event.

Thank you to all the teachers and parents who have helped during the day to make it a great success. 

 

Colour Run!

We are gearing up for out Colour Run next Tuesday 12th September.  We will have a day of Health and Physical education Tribes activities and our Colour Run which will be the highlight of the day.  We are hoping to raise money to purchase some sports equipment for the students to use during recess and lunch time.  

A way to help with your fundraising is to

- send an email to your family and friends asking for a donation, explaining why you are raising money and how to donate.

On the day we will also have 3 Tribes sessions in which will involve the students learning about being healthy and how important exercise and making healthy food choices is for their body.

The Colour Run will take place at Elizabeth Bridge starting at 11:50am.  

Foundation and Junior school will run first.

Middle -from 12:05

Senior school from 12:20

Please note that these are approximate times.  

Students can come to school in their white T-Shirts ready for the Colour Run.  

If your child is an asthmatic please make sure they have their puffer with them on the day and please remind them to bring it with them to the Colour Run. 

If you would like to help out at the event or just come down and watch you are most welcome.  

Please cross your fingers for no rain!

Ultimate Frisbee

As part of our target games, Seniors have been learning how to throw a Frisbee and the rules to Ultimate Frisbee.  We have been learning to backhand throw and forward flick.  Hopefully next term we can have a game with the oval is a bit dryer. 

Peer Assessment

Our Middle school students have been learning how to peer assess.  We have been learning about appropriate feedback and we are working on encouraging our partner.  This has been a great to see the students giving advice and helping others to work on their FMS skills.  We have also been learning to kick and punt.  

Squish and Kick

Juniors have been learning to squish the spider and then kick the ball using the inside of their foot.  It has been quiet a challenge for some students but great to see those students haven't giving up.  We have knocked over skittles, tennis balls on cones, kicked goals, kicked to a partner, weaved in and out of cones

Balloons and beanbags

Our Foundation students have been consolidating their throwing and catching skills.  There is so many steps to remember when you throw and catch, but for this term we have just worked on make our hands in a nest so we are ready to catch. Thank you so much to Tammy who comes and helps out with PMP on Thursday afternoons.  The students love seeing their parents at school helping.  We are very grateful for all your help.  

 

Circuit work continues

Seniors have continued to enjoy building and testing different circuits.  We have worked on lemon lights and switched to understanding the terms conductor and insulator and being able to use them accurately when explaining our observations and results. 

 

Heating up

Middle school enjoyed testing wooden, plastic and metal spoons in jugs of hot water and explaining which material heats up more than the others and backing this up with evidence. Middle school are working on their understandings of what variables are and how they are used to make an investigation fair. 

 

Marshmallow shooters

Juniors were so excited this week to launch marshmallows  into the air with our cup shooters and explain the push and pull that occurs. 

 

Science awards

Well done to Max and Sione. 

 

Variables 

We have been working on improving our understandings about what variables are. I thought I would include an example of what they are so that you can work on them at home. 

 

Visual Arts News

I hope our dads of Foundation students, liked their farther's Day presents of decorated picture frames. The students loved making something special for you that you can treasure forever...

Our juniors are enjoying making a mess with paper mache. They will create an animal- keep your eyes peeled.

Most of our middles have now completed their pillows. They have all become more confident in their sewing abilities as well as threading the cotton into the needle.

Our seniors are working on one of three tasks. Most have now completed their skateboard decks and Mr Gooding and myself are in the process of deciding the best way of displaying them. They are now also working on a street art design for the back of the art room and also creating wire houses or creatures which will then be covered in modroc and decorated.

I am still in need of newspaper if you have any no longer needed. Thank you for all your generous donations and support.

Chaplain’s Chat
“I just don’t know where to go?”
 

This is a cry I hear frequently and it is very real.  We find ourselves with a challenge we have had no previous preparation for, we know we can’t manage on our own and that we need support but don’t know where to start to access that support.

When a child has a temperature or a broken bone going to the Drs. is clear cut and an automatic reaction but what do we do with other situations where we haven’t experienced a defined pathway.

Often, we may not even be aware that there is support available, let alone how to go about accessing it.  l have in my office a range of brochures, guide books, contact points and tip sheets for a variety of different circumstances which families are welcome to access and which might possibly help you find the first step on that pathway.

I have “Beyond Blue” information booklets on ‘Depression and Anxiety’ with lots of helpful information in and contacts for follow up.  There are fridge magnets and information about contact to Parentline”(13 22 89) a great support.  There is a brochure from Eastern Community Legal centre about free assistance with Rental and Tenancy Issues.  I have an interactive computer game produced by the Attorney General’s Dept. to help children navigate through all the changes that occur during separation or divorce.

There is information offering tips and information for families where a parent has a mental health problem or disorder.  There is “Beyond Blue” guidelines particularly for supporting a young person with depression.  I have a document produced by The Aust. Childhood Foundation which outlines and encourages “Connected Parenting” filled with simple, practical tips designed to enrich family life and yours and your children’s relationship.  There is also a practical guide for keeping young people safe on line entitled “Facebook – friend or foe?” there is an succinct little guide called “ Me, my kids and my Ex” produced by The Child Support Agency with Tips and Hints on Surviving Separation.  There are also some guides on dealing with some of the other hard stuff we deal with like grief, anger and change.

Please feel free to pop in and see whether there is something there that may be helpful and if you are not sure, just come by and ask, who knows, a search may uncover another effective resource to share.

SRC News

Who are we!

Hi, I am Alysha Henry and I am Connor Slattery and we are the 2017 SRC chair people.

Our job is to help the SRC co-coordinators, Miss May and Miss Rennick,  with running and organising the SRC meetings. 

 

Throughout the school year the student representative council raises money for a range of causes. These include: 

- Sweetheart Day: Raising awareness for children with heart disease.

-Stomp out the Gap: Raising money to bridge the gap in education for Indigenous children. 

-Jeans for Genes Day: Raising money for the children's medical institute so they are able to find ways to treat or prevent childhood cancer, epilepsy and genetic diseases. 

-ANZAC appeal: Helping to support families affected by war. 

 

On the last day of each term we hold a free dress/dress up day. Everyone loves our free dress days and is willing to bring a gold coin donation. The money raised on these free dress days goes towards our world vision sponsor child. 

 

This is how the SRC is currently helping the school, the community and our sponsor child. So many good causes!

 

Thanks,

Alysha Henry and Connor Slattery
