Principal's Report

From the Principal...

NAPLAN Testing

The NAPLAN Tests for students in Years 3 and 5 will take place on Tuesday, 9th, Wednesday, 10th and Thursday, 11th of May. I encourage all parents to help their children remain positive and calmly confident up to and during the NAPLAN period. All students should reflect on their record of consistent application to their learning over the previous three and a half (Year 3) or five and a half years (Year 5). NAPLAN should be seen as a chance to demonstrate that long term learning and to enjoy the intrinsic challenge of the tests. As part of the regular teaching program the teachers will have familiarized the students with questions presented in the format.

 

Council of International Schools (CIS)

The school leadership, teaching and support staff, along with School Council, are committed to the continuous improvement of all aspects of Ormond Primary School. A key strategy to support this aspirational target is the pursuit and achievement of full accreditation within the Council of International Schools. Work to towards the achievement of full accreditation is a major focus over the next twelve months.

 

Ormond Primary School has been recognised as a high performing school at each of the three previous school reviews conducted by the Department of Education Victoria in 2006, 2010 and 2014. Through CIS accreditation Ormond Primary School will be acknowledged as a high quality school within a broad, international educational forum. Membership and accreditation with the CIS implies that Ormond will achieve and maintain exemplary standards in all key areas now and well into the future. The achievement of the seven School Membership Standards ensures that Ormond Primary School has joined with very high performing schools from around the world. All of these high performing schools are successful in developing students who are truly capable of continued studies and employment in a range of global settings. The nurturing of global citizens begins at primary school with a sharp focus on a comprehensive and holistic education for all students. The culture and environment necessary for the maintenance of a very high performing school will be developed through the achievement of the CIS accreditation.

 

All CIS Member Schools are high quality schools committed to incorporating international and intercultural perspectives into their programs so that students can move forward with the attitudes and understanding that will provide them with a solid base wherever their studies or work may take them.

 

To become members of CIS, schools participate in a rigorous application process which includes a visit to the school by a CIS staff member. Schools must meet the Membership Criteria and Standards and agree to support and uphold the CIS Code of Ethics for Schools.

 

CIS Membership acknowledges that the school:

Clearly demonstrates international mindedness and actively promotes international awareness in its students

Applies the CIS Code of Ethics for Schools

Is willing to undertake an external school improvement process

 

School Membership Standards

 

A.  School Guiding Statements

  • The school has clear guiding statements (e.g. mission, vision, educational objectives) which are suitable for the enrolled student body
  • The guiding statements commit the school to providing international and inter-cultural experiences for its students and this commitment is reflected throughout the school

B. Teaching and Learning

  • In their content, design and implementation, curricular programmes serve to put the school’s guiding statements into practice including the school’s commitment to global citizenship
  • Curricular programmes are well organised, documented, and support teaching and learning

C. Governance and Leadership

  • The Governing Body and School Management observe legal and ethical principles in all dealings with the school community
  • The Head of School is a suitably qualified, competent and experienced in education
  • There is a co-operative and effective working relationship between the governing body and the head of school supported by written documentation which outlines roles, responsibilities and limitations of authority
  • The school’s operations and expectations for staff are guided by clearly formulated policies and practices
  • The school carefully plans its development to ensure ongoing school viability, quality school programmes, and accomplishment of the school‘s guiding statements

D. Faculty and Support Staff

  • The school has leadership, management, teaching and support staff sufficient in numbers and with the qualifications, competencies and character to carry out satisfactorily the school’s mission, programmes, services and activities and to support student well-being
  • All staff are employed under clear written contracts or employment agreements and receive adequate compensation for their work.  Adequate procedures are in place for the recruitment, orientation and well-being of internationally recruited teachers

  • Any “auxiliary” services which the school may be offering (food, security, transportation, cleaning, etc.) meet acceptable standards of safety and quality

Football/Pokemon/Collectors Cards

During the footy season many children will begin to collect footy cards and they will want to bring them along to school. I like to remind everyone, especially younger students and their parents, about our ‘Footy Card Protocols’ so that all children can enjoy this activity throughout the season. Collecting cards and trading them with friends is a wonderful pastime which helps to promote an understanding of value as well as providing experience in trading and negotiating. However, the enjoyment of these activities needs structure and a few simple rules.

 

  • Children need to trade cards only with children of a similar age. It would be unfair for a child in Year 3 to attempt to trade cards with a Prep or Year 1 student as they would often have a different understanding of the relative value of various cards. This is a potential source of conflict which can easily be avoided by trading only with age group peers.
  • Cards should not become a distraction in class. Children who bring cards to school must put them in their tub, locker or bag during class time.
  • Responsibility for the cards rests with child who owns them. If a child drops their cards in the yard, puts them down or misplaces them it is their responsibility. Do not leave your album or pile of cards unattended in the yard as they are valuable and you need to look after them. Make sure your album is clearly labelled with your name.
  • Keep your special cards separate from your trading cards. Your special cards are mementos that you will want to keep. Your trading cards are ones showing players from your least favourite teams or cards which you already have.
  • Cards that are found in the yard need to be handed in at the Office. If you find cards in the yard or around the school they have been lost by someone else. Hand the card in at the Office so that the rightful owner can collect it.

 

Parents could discuss these rules with their children so that they enter into collecting and trading with a clear idea about how best to enjoy the activity.

 

Congratulations 

Congratulions to Elani Gibney, past teacher and current CRT who was married this past weekend. The Ormond Primary Community wish much love and well wishes for your future.

Lost Property Volunteer

Do you have a spare half an hour or so each week to lend a hand? We are in need of a new volunteer to take over organising the Lost Property Cupboard.

 

Thank you to Rochelle Holstein for you efforts in organising the Lost Property Cupboard for last year and so far this year and ensuring that misplaced belonings are returned to their rightful owners. You time and energy has been greatly appreciated. 

 

Please contact Brodie in the office if you are intersted or for more information.

 

Love Your Sister

Yesterday we held a one off fundraiser in suport of the 'Love Your Sister - Big Heart Project' which is a World Record attempt to make the longest line of five cent coins, with all proceeds going to Cancer research. 

 

Every metre of 5 cent coins is equal to $2.90. We raised $1031.25 which is over 355 metres towards the World Record Attempt. An outstanding effort from everyone, thank you to all who donated. 

Premiers Reading Challenge

The Victorian Premier's Reading Challenge (PRC) is for every Ormond Primary School student. All students have been registered, and children from Prep to Year 2 are encouraged to read or ‘experience’ 30 books with their parents and teachers. Children from Year 3 to Year 6 are challenged to read 15 books.

 

Regular reading from an early age is vital for success at school and has lifelong benefits. The Challenge encourages children to read more and promotes a love of reading.

The Premier’s Reading Challenge is a personal challenge, and all children who meet the challenge will receive a certificate of achievement signed by the Victorian Premier.

 

Parents can also choose to have their child’s name included on the online Honour Roll. Last week a form came home inviting you to sign to have your child’s name included on the roll. If you would like your child’s name included, please return the form to your child’s class teacher.

 

Every book read from 21st March, counts towards achieving your child’s personal reading goal in the Premier’s Reading Challenge. The challenge closes on 8 September 2017, so get on board the challenge wagon, and see where reading takes you!

PRC coordinator

Prep News

Welcome back Preps! All of the students have settled into Term 2 smoothly and we are now back into the swing of things. Thank you to all the parent helpers who will be coming in on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday to assist with readers.

 

In ‘Language Experience’ for this week students created bubbles for the letter ‘B’. The students loved this activity and had a great time seeing how big and how many bubbles they could blow. In the picture below Jack shows off his bubbles.

 

A few reminders to all parents and prep students: Prep A now has library on a Wednesday and Prep B and C now have library on a Friday. Sound Talk is still on a Friday, please encourage and assist your child in bringing something in for the letter of the week as Sound Talk is a great opportunity for students to become come more confident with their public speaking.

 

Also, if in the mornings parents could please begin to encourage their child to enter the Prep Building by themselves when the music starts to play. This is a great way for students to begin to develop their confidence and to start to get into a strong habit of being responsible for organizing themselves for the day.

 

Year 3 News

On Friday 28th April the Year 3's ventured on a journey of discovery about the 'First People's of Victoria'. They learnt all about different aspects of Aboriginal culture. For example, they investigated Indigenous costumes, ceremonies, clothing and transport. They enjoyed using the Ipads to record and take photos of their experiences. The students were able to talk knowledgeably about the exhibit using their prior knowledge and their investigations in class. This excursion was a wonderful culmination of the Year 3 Humanities investigation and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
