Philippines/Maghanoy School Program

St Andrew’s Social Justice Focus
Paddy Edwards and
Callum Mills Abroad
21st February - 6th March

Kadasig Aid and Development is a voluntary group based in Australia working to improve the lives of children and families through livelihood programs.

The Philippines Journey

Our involvement in this program centres around a 14 day trip to the Philippines in which we will be visiting our new sponsor school (Maghanoy School) - an initiative undertaken half way through 2019.

In late December, the school shipped off 3 very full balikbayan boxes of stationery which is due to arrive very soon. Our responsibility is to assist our sponsor school with materials they will need to run a successful education program for their community.

We will be travelling with 6 other Australians who are also involved sponsoring and developing areas of the community. This includes other schools, boys/girls refugees and community organisations founded by the Kadasig group. It is sure to be a challenging and rewarding experience and we look forward to sharing with you upon our return.

What you can do?

We are truly appreciative of your donations that we received in 2019. Prior to our departure on February 21st we are asking for money donations which will allow us to purchase the necessary goods upon our arrival in the Philippines such as sporting equipment, food, toiletries and other essential items. Any contribution would be greatly appreciated. These donations can be made through your classroom teacher or at the front office.

Thank you and God bless.

Paddy Edwards & Callum Mills

Student Personal Information Exchange Proforma

A ‘Student Personal Information Exchange Proforma’ has been sent home with every student in Year 1 to 6.  This proforma aims to provide classroom teachers with further insight into the development of your child/ren.  We ask that each child’s proforma is returned to school by Wednesday 12th February.  
Class teachers will reflect on the information provided in these Profroma’s. With the combination of the ‘handover’ of knowledge from last year’s teacher, Student Personal Information Proforma and our end of Term 1 Parents/Child/Teacher Interview we aim to gain a strong insight into the personality of your child.  This can only add to the strength of the relationship between teacher and student.   

Cyber Safety Evening

Cyber Safety Evening - Year 3/4/5 attendance, along with an open invitation to all 
Parents of Year 3/4/5 children are requested to attend a Cyber Safety Evening to be held on Tuesday 11th February (6.30pm - 7.45pm) in the school hall.  

The evening is also an open invitation to all parents from Foundation to Year 2.   We are requesting the attendance of at least one parent of each Year 3/4/5 child.  With the children accessing the use of one-to-one Chromebooks it is essential that both parents, students and staff are aware of the responsible use of technology at home and at school. 
Parents who attended the February 2019 cybersafety session do not have to attend this forthcoming session but are warmly welcomed.  

Beginning at 6.30pm parents will be led through a Cyber Safety presentation by our guest presenter Marty McGauran. 
Marty will be presenting Cyber Safety sessions for all children from Year 1 to Year 6.   Class teachers will present cyber safety sessions throughout the first weeks of term 1 and throughout the school year. 

Digital Technologies Cyber Safety and Acceptable Use Policy  - Year 3-6 - Parent/Student Signature

As educators, and as parents, we must be vigilant in our approach to the manner in which our children access and communicate in their face to face interactions along with their interactions in our online world.  

 

Parents should have received in the past week a copy of the St Andrew’s ICT Cyber Safety and Acceptable Use Policy. 

The policy outlines the children’s responsibilities associated with the use of technologies.    The policy also addresses the need for parents to be vigilant in the monitoring of their children’s use of technology and the internet at home. 

The policy outlines the children’s responsibilities associated with the use of technologies.    The policy also addresses the need for parents to be vigilant in the monitoring of their children’s use of technology and the internet at home.

 

Return of Digital Technologies Cyber Safety and Acceptable Use Policy

We request that all families read through this policy and discuss the content with your child.  Parents are requested to sign the policy and then return the policy to your child’s class teacher by Friday 15th February. Children in Years 3 to 6 classes are also asked to sign the policy.  We believe as a staff that the children in these levels are mature enough to understand what the policy asks of them.   Please return the document in full so that it can be referred to by students throughout the school year.   

Copies of this policy will also be available at the Parent Teacher Interviews if any documents are not received by parents.

School Accounts Distribution

School accounts will be distributed to all families at the end of this week.  Please refer below to payment processes for School Fees and Levies.  

School Fees Payment Options

School fees and student levy accounts will be issued in February for the whole school year. Swimming and Camp fees will be added to your account where applicable during the school year. 

You may choose to pay the account in a lump sum, quarterly, monthly, fortnightly or weekly.  Payment options in preference order are as follows:-

  •  BPay- you will notice at the top of the account the biller code and BPay reference number.
  • Direct Debit - forms are available from the school office to set up a direct debit payment. These payments may be made weekly, fortnightly, monthly or quarterly.
  • Cash or Cheque to the school office.

Copies of accounts will be distributed to families each school term.

 All fees should be paid in full by 16th October, 2020.

 If you experience difficulty paying your school account, you should contact the principal to arrange a payment plan.

 

Student Wearing of Uniform - School Shoes

It is terrific to see our children returning to school wearing the correct school uniform as available at PSW.  We noted on a regular basis throughout 2019 that a number of children, often in the senior classes, were wearing sports shoes on a day other than their day of Physical Education lessons or Inter School Sports days.  
We request that parents remind students to wear black school shoes on days when sports sessions will not be taking place.   

Novel Coronavirus Correspondence from Catholic Education Melbourne 

Parents are encouraged to read the most recent correspondence below in relation to the CEM approach to the Novel Coronavirus:  

(This correspondence was shared via the Skoolbag App on Monday 3rd February) 


Dear Parents and Carers, 
Further to my message last week, I am writing to provide you with updated advice about the novel coronavirus outbreak relating to people arriving in Australia from mainland China. 
Any child returning from mainland China (not including Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) who was in mainland China on or after 1 February 2020 is to be isolated at home and should not attend school until 14 days after they were last in mainland China. 
This recommendation applies only to children who were in mainland China on or after 1 February 2020. It does not apply to students that left mainland China before 1 February 2020. 
As previously advised, parents of students that have been exposed to a confirmed coronavirus case or that have arrived in Australia from Hubei Province should ensure that their child is isolated at home and does not attend school for 14 days. 
You can access further information and updates from the following websites:
·       For Victorian updates to the current incident, go to: https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/novelcoronavirus
·       For national updates: https://www.health.gov.au/news/latest-information-about-novel-coronavirus
·       For international updates: https://www.who.int/westernpacific/emergencies/novel-coronavirus
·       WHO resources: https://www.who.int/health-topics/coronavirus
 

The well-being of your child continues to be of paramount importance to our school staff. I will continue to share information and advice about the coronavirus outbreak as it becomes available.

Unexplained Student Absence’ - Notifying the School Office of Student Absences

It is essential that parents contact the school either by phone, 9551 5094 from 8am, via email - office@saclaytonsth.catholic.edu.au  or via the Skoolbag App,   if your child will be absent from school. 

Parents who do not contact the school will be sent a SMS text message  seeking clarity on the whereabouts of their child.  

As a means of saving our administration team from making multiple phone calls we ask that parents contact the school to advise of student absences.  If a child is to be absent for a number of days then parents are asked to advise the class teacher of an extended time of absence.  This may be applicable to family holidays, extended periods of illness etc.

This process has been put in place as a matter of safety for the children in our care. We thank parents for your support of this new procedure. 

Tuckshop 2020 Opening Hours

The Tuckshop will open from 10 February, 2020 for recess sales on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11.00am to 11.30am. 

Parents will recall that we have appointed Mina Spano to the role as Canteen Coordinator for the 2020 school year.  We’re excited to present our children with a new menu, full of healthy options. We’ll communicate to parents in the coming fortnight as to what a weekly canteen menu may look like.   Given that we are looking to provide our children with freshly made healthy foods it may be a case where we advise parents on an ongoing basis as to what’s on sale in the week ahead.  

Mina will be warmly welcoming parents to jump on board as canteen helpers on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Stay tuned!

CareMonkey Registration for New Families

It is recommended that parents access the site    www.caremonkey.com/sign-up  . By following the instructions you can create your own free CareMonkey account and control all data about your child/children. The CareMonkey system stores the information on your behalf and you will be able to grant (or deny) access to your data with our school. You are also able to share this data with any other group or individual you choose (eg. your child's grandparents, their child-minder, their sports club, etc).

 

From the school’s perspective, this information will only be visible by the relevant staff for your child and will be managed in accordance with the Privacy Act. 

Medical Issues

Please contact the school office if there are any medical issues that we should be aware of.   It is most important that all medical forms, asthma and anaphylaxis plans, are updated for the 2020 school year and returned promptly.  We are advised that children may need to be excluded from school if they do not have the required medical information or medication available at the school eg. Epipens, with the correct ‘use by dates’.

Do I have to complete an Action Plan, if the child only has seasonal asthma, or asthma symptoms when they have a cold?
Yes, any time asthma medication is prescribed and expected to be taken at school or the children's service, it must by law be accompanied by a medical management plan. If the health professional is concerned about diagnosing the child with asthma, it is recommended that they put a shorter review date on the action plan, and write a covering letter to the school or children's service explaining the expected time frame the child will need reliever medication.

Out of Hours School Care

We are delighted to welcome Jennifer Wilson back as the schools Out of Hours School Care (Youth Leadership Victoria) coordinator.  Out of Hours School Care runs daily from 6.30am to 8.30am and 3.15pm to 6.30pm.

Better Buddies Programme

 

 

Information about the Program

The Alannah and Madeline Foundation’s Better Buddies Framework is based on several years of research into buddy programs in schools.  Buddy system’s play an important role in helping to create friendly and caring school environments assisting young students’ transition into primary school.

Buddy systems teach, and give children the opportunity to practise the important values of respect, care, inclusion and acceptance, responsibility and friendship.  Through looking after and caring for smaller children who are just starting school, older children learn the skills associated with empathy and compassion through activities in the classroom and in the playground.  This helps in combating bullying and other forms of antisocial behaviour.  Teaching pro-social values and skills can also contribute to the development of resilience, a protective factor for children if they experience hardship or loss.

What does the Better Buddies Programme do?

The Better Buddies Programme;

  • assists with student transition to primary school
  • develops positive cross-age relationships
  • provides opportunities for peer tutoring
  • contributes to more positive behaviours by providing role models
  • develops responsibility
  • builds self confidence
  • develops empathy
  • promotes inclusion
  • discourages bullying

What’s on?

The Better Buddies Programme involving the Year 5 and Foundation students will start this week, with training sessions for Year 5 students which comprise the following aspects;

Part 1: What are the expected behaviours and qualities of a big buddy (reflecting the St. Andrew’s values).

Part 2: Role & Relationship Boundaries

Part 3: Developing empathy for Foundation buddies (students reminisce about their own experiences of starting school).  

The training culminates in students reflecting on what makes a great buddy, from which a big buddy charter can be written. The charter is used as an evaluation tool throughout the buddy programme.

 

The First Buddy Session where Foundation and Year 5 students are introduced and get to know each other will be on Friday 14th February. 

We will be having a Teddy Bear Picnic, and inviting students from both Year 5 & Foundation to bring along a teddy bear or something special that they would like to share with their buddy.

Term One will be filled with many fun and engaging Buddy activities. Stay tuned!

Parents and Friends

Dear Families,

Welcome to Term 1, 2020!

After a successful 2019,  Parents &Friends are underway planning for another great year of activities for 2020. The P&F's first meeting for the year will be focusing on key fundraising goals and key events and activities for 2020.  We invite all families to join and connect with us.

 

The P&F hosted two Welcome Morning Teas for our new Foundation and existing families last week on Thursday and Friday. It was lovely to see such a big turnout and a fantastic opportunity to have a cuppa with our families. Both morning teas were held under our school’s new blue sunshades and beautiful Oak tree.

Thank you to all families who have donated their children’s pre-loved uniforms. Our cupboards are full.  All second-hand uniforms are $5 each and the second-hand uniform shop is open Mondays 2:45pm – 3:10pm. For new families please come by via the Office and Annette will guide you to the shop. Special thanks to Nerida, Nicole and Helena from P&F for coordinating the second-hand uniform school and families.

 

We will have more information on upcoming activities in the coming newsletter, so stay tune!

 

Feel free to contact us or grab one of us at school during drop-off/pick-up or email us at parents.friends.standrews@gmail.com.

Looking forward to connecting with all of you,
