From the Principal

A sense of belonging

In the 1950s and 1960s many Italians from the same village settled in Pennsylvania in the USA. Some years later a study was completed to consider what factors were leading to their excellent health. It was a time when many Americans were identified as having poor dietary and exercise habits and researchers were keen to determine what could be gleaned from the practices of the Italian immigrants. Surprisingly, there was little difference from other residents, so attention turned to genetic factors. Again, nothing pronounced was noted which puzzled the researchers. Finally, interviews were conducted which found an extraordinary level of participation and contribution to local community groups and clubs. In this instance, a sense of belonging to these groups was the link to a longer life.

 

Many of our students are currently involved in end of year sport, drama, music, art and Magis performances and functions. It is brilliant that these students have such a strong sense of belonging through these activities. We also acknowledged our numerous parent volunteers at a celebration last week. On the night, I made the point that their sense of service was a superb example to their children.

 

On Friday evening a large crowd listened to a panel of John XXIII men discuss parenting as part of the fathering project at our College. The participation of West Coast coach and parent, Adam Simpson, was a major attraction and it is a brilliant concept to bring our Dads together. On Sunday I attended Mass and Morning tea with Loreto Alumni who do an exceptional job of maintaining their links to both Loreto Nedlands and John XXIII College.

 

It is a privilege to have an involvement in a Catholic College that fosters an involvement of both students and families and our gratitude is extended to our wonderful extended community for their varied and rich contribution.

Around The Primary

Dear Parents

The Primary Music Ensemble Concert on Wednesday evening was a special event for those students who have participated in various ensembles and choirs throughout the year. It was the last performance for our Year 6 students and we especially thank them for their contribution to Music in the Primary school over many years. Thank you to our Music staff who work very hard behind the scenes, rehearsing and assisting students with their practice and repertoire to make this event happen.

 

To top the week off, Ms O’Connor and Year 5G planned and produced a fantastic Christmas item for today’s Assembly.

It is that exciting time of the year when we welcome our 2019 Pre-Kindy and Kindy students for their Orientation session. Our Pre-Primary to Year 6 2019 students will have their Transition session next Friday with their 2019 teacher and also meet new classmates for next year.


It is important that we encourage the students to meet this change with a sense of positivity and hope. The students will meet new friends and begin to make new connections with others that will continue into next year. At the end of the year, our staff conduct what we call handover sessions where they share pertinent information with the 2019 teacher to ensure that each child’s academic, social and wellbeing needs are shared with relevant staff.

 

As the school year draws to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our 2018 PALs for their fantastic contribution in coordinating volunteering requirements throughout the Primary School, as well as, organising family and parent events throughout the year. It is a wonderful example of the depth and breadth of our College community. Special thanks to Liz Blaxell for her year as Vice President of the Parents’ Association Committee and also for co-ordinating the Parents’ Association Liaison (PALS).

Youth Summit

I would first like to state how amazing it was at the Youth Summit that we attended last Friday. It  not only allowed  Year Fives from different Catholic schools to gather and listen to keynote speakers and each other about leadership and ”Being The One”.  It was great experience for me. I took in all the wisdom that I received from all the role models on that day and will try to use it in my life. I found everything we did was so interactive and it made us all feel a part of something big. It was a wonderful day.

Liam Pietrzak (5B)

 

The Youth Summit day was spectacular, my peers and I got to experience a fun and educational day at Chisholm College. The day was full of really fun activities, such as, exercise and listening to great keynote speakers, all relating to the overall theme of “Being The One.” This means that we all could be leaders in our schools and in our own lives. All of the speakers had interesting things to say that were easy to understand and fun to listen to. As we left school we were all excited to be going to this special event. I was so grateful that I had the opportunity to go.

Amelia Hennessy (5B)

 

On Friday 16 November four Year Fives including me attended the Youth Summit at Chisholm College. The theme was “Being The One”. The keynote speakers spoke about the responsibilities involved in being a good leader. I found it very interesting when one of the keynote speakers a television journalist spoke about his experience with bullying at school and how it affected him. When I left the Youth Summit, I felt I was a leader and felt more confident in myself.

Mahalia Upton (5G)

 

I thought the Youth Summit we attended last Friday was amazing! All the guest speakers really inspired me.  I think they did a fantastic job inspiring all the students that attended about what it means to be a leader. It was a very interactive experience, with all of us feeling that we could speak and be listened to. I feel I will now strive to carry out the lessons I learned on the day in my everyday life.

STEM Drone Club​

The College STEM Drone Club had it first official meeting this week. Students flew their own drones around a simple course and it was wonderful to see the piloting skills of our inaugural members. We will get together again next week at the same time in the Gym.

 

Next year the College hopes to buy its own set of drones that the students can use. We hope to have the students use coding to program the drones to fly in formation and solve problems collaboratively. When we have our drones next year we will also start drone racing with a view to eventually building our own drones.

Buying a device for Christmas? Experts recommend 5 things to consider FIRST

Written by Family Zone Team on 20-Nov-2018 

 

This holiday season, many kids have only a single item on their wishlist: a new device. But buying a smartphone, tablet or laptop is a big decision for parents. How can you be sure you're making the right one?

 

First there’s the question of age. Is it even appropriate for children below high-school age to own their technology? What do the experts say?

 

"The new normal"

Young children owning their own mobile devices “is the new normal.” That’s the conclusion of the Royal Melbourne Children’s Hospital, following an Australian Child Health poll that found two-thirds of primary school kids and more than a third of pre-schoolers own their own mobile device.

 

The ACH poll found two-thirds of primary school kids and 36% of preschoolers now own their own mobile device. As for Australian teens - if yours tells you “everyone else” has one, turns out that may literally be true. Only nine percent of Aussie children aged 14-17 do not have a smartphone, a 2016  Roy Morgan survey found.

 

Younger than you think?

So what is the right age for a child to get their own device?

Possibly, a bit earlier than you may have thought, according to Family Zone cyber expert and ySafe psychologist Jordan Foster (but definitely not this young!).

 

She maintains that when children are given their own device earlier rather than later, there’s an opportunity for parents set firm boundaries and enforce rules. Waiting til kids are older may seem like the right decision, but they will almost certainly be more resistant to restrictions.

 

Younger children tend to see device ownership as a privilege, not a right. And that’s an attitude parents can reinforce - and  leverage. Plus, if children start out their technology journey with strong parental controls in place, it creates appropriate expectations about safety and responsibility that will continue into their high school years.

 

Developmental stage

Foster’s fellow cyber expert Dr. Kristy Goodwin, a child development specialist, urges parents to consider children’s social and emotional development as a first priority - not chronological age.

“It’s difficult to prescribe a precise chronological age when it’s safe and/or appropriate,” says Dr. Kristy. “I recommend delaying the decision until you feel your child is emotionally mature and responsible. Remember, your child may be tech savvy but they make lack the social and emotional skills required to safely use the device.

 

Do they, for instance, “understand the permanent consequences of posting a photo online, or sending a message?” Dr. Kirsty asks.

 

This is especially true when it comes to smartphone access. Most tablets and laptops are “mobile” but most require a WiFi connection. Because of this - and also because they are bigger and bulkier - they tend to be used either at home or at school, under adult supervision. A smartphone, on the other hand, will literally go everywhere with your child - and of course most come with a data plan that means connection anytime and anywhere is possible.

 

Giving your child a smartphone is giving them a powerful communication tool that does so much more than make and receive phone calls.

 

With a phone, they can also create and receive text messages, images, and videos - “and these can be easily and quickly distributed online, screenshot or uploaded onto other websites.

 

“You’re also giving them a device that can access the Internet anywhere, anytime - unless you use parental controls like Family Zone which can restrict what kids can access and when devices are used.

 

“When you give a child a smartphone they can potentially post, or distribute embarrassing or incriminating photos/videos/ messages. Kids’ online mistakes or errors in judgement now have digital DNA attached.”

 

Making the call

Before making a purchase of any new device for your child, experts advise parents to:

1. Assess your child’s emotional maturity. If they’re not ready to understand privacy, empathy and cyber safety risks, they’re probably not ready for a smartphone. If they’re not brilliant at looking after their belongings yet, they’re probably not ready for a smartphone OR a laptop. Consider a tablet instead.

 

2. Consider a smartphone at a somewhat younger age - around 10 to 11. This can be a critical periodfor children to accept parent-managed access without question or complaint.

 

3.  Make the gift of a new device a teaching-and-learning experience about digital citizenship, safety and wellbeing.

 

4. Set up firm rules about how, what, when and where the device can be used. A written contract that sets out your expectations, and your child's responsibilities, is the best first step. Family Zone has created a great  one you can print at home. Download it here.

 

4. No matter what device you choose, be sure to put strong parental controls in place to filter inappropriate content, restrict social media and games, and set bedtimes and playtimes. Or - if you’re purchasing a smartphone - consider the FZ ONE, the only “real” smartphone for kids with Family Zone controls built right in.

Magis

The Year 10 team of Emily Tyson, Ben Linsten and Alex Panther has been competing in the World Scholar’s Tournament of Champions at Yale University.

 

The John XXIII team was undefeated in their three debates, a wonderful performance at this high level of competition. We are excited with the wonderful results from Yale World Scholars!  All three team members performed extremely well, and we gained a total of 16 gold and 11 silver medals – splendid for a team of three.

 

Emily Tyson was the standout and the top student from Australia, not just WA. She ranked 15th in the world out of nearly 900 students competing in the Tournament of Champions. Emily won 9 gold medals – an exceptional performance. Ben Linsten (4 gold) and Alex Panther (3 gold) also did extremely well, and the team was very strong in team as well as individual sections.

A second highlight for this week is that or Year 8 team which came second in the Quest Challenge has qualified for the National finals in Brisbane. Full details for both events will be in the next newsletter.

GOOD NEWS for the Feast of Jesus Christ Universal King

John 18:33-37

 

The reflection for this Sunday’s Gospel is part of a longer 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.

 

It’s clear from [Sunday’s] Gospel, and the New Testament in general, that while Jesus frequently spoke of his Kingdom, is hailed like a king on Palm Sunday and is facetiously given the title of king by Pilate, his kingship is vastly different from those of Caesar, Herod and even David and the other Kings of Israel.

 

The earliest Christians seem to have understood this very well. We find very little writing or artistic representation of Jesus as a king before 324 AD. In that year Emperor Constantine becomes a catechumen and Christianity becomes the religion of the Roman Empire. After this time Jesus starts to appear wearing a crown and holding an orb. Mary is styled as the Queen of Heaven and begins to be pictured as such. This is all understandable as the previously persecuted Christian sect now emerges to become the most powerful unifying force in the Roman Empire. It was a sweet victory, but it meant that whatever was said of the Roman Emperor, even more must be true of Christ the Universal King and Lord.

 

As centuries passed and the Roman Empire passed away, the Church maintained many of its now long-standing royal prerogatives and language. Just as an example, to this day the Pope and some bishops live in places called palaces. They wear jewels and rings and have feudal coats of arms. Worse still by far, however, is the mentality and behaviour of a very few Bishops, who seem to think that the church is above the scrutiny of the faithful, and the law of the land.

The problem with all these historical accretions is that they directly contradict the way in which Jesus spoke about himself as a King. Almost all references to Jesus’ kingship occur within the passion narratives. Today’s extract from John’s gospel is among the most famous of them all. ‘You say I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.’

 

There are not too many Kings or Queens today who would love their people so much that they would be prepared to die for them. We know from history that when the going gets tough many monarchs get going. But what we get in Jesus as King is one who did not compromise his humanity, who would not yield from his preaching and does not abandon us in our desolation. Jesus’ kingship is revealed in his utter fidelity to us – even to the end.

 

So let’s not be seduced by the power, pride, riches and greed which worldly rulers so crave. Let’s keep our own eyes on Christ our King who loved people more than things, who spoke the truth with love, and who died that we might live. And let’s not shrink from challenging the entire Church to do the same.

Health

Energy drinks​

Energy drinks are not suitable for children and teens. They are also not recommended for pregnant women, people with heart disease, or people who are sensitive to caffeine.

 

Energy drinks typically contain:

  • Caffeine (ranges from 30mg/250ml to 150mg/250ml, depending on the brand)
  • Guarana ( a caffeine extract from a plant)
  • Sugar (in higher quantities than sports drinks)
  • Protein (the amino acid taurine is often added to these drinks
  • Vitamin B

The higher caffeine content of these drinks can produce a variety of unpleasant side effects. The high sugar levels in these drinks can reduce the body’s ability to absorb water, meaning that it is dangerous to consume these drinks before, during or after physical activity. It is particularly dangerous to mix energy drinks with alcohol.
