Principal’s Message

Dear Parklands Family,

I know I write about this every year, but I just love our Back to School BBQ and events like it.  For those who didn’t attend, on Monday afternoon we had almost 200 parents plus children descend on the College to connect with our community and catch-up with staff.  Our student leaders and volunteers served food and drinks while staff caught up with parents for an unhurried chat outdoors. We don’t often get chances like these to just socialize, and I appreciate these relaxed moments to simply get to know people better.

Toward the end of every year, I conduct many, many enrolment interviews and welcome dozens of new students to Parklands. During these interviews I get a brief snapshot into the lives of our prospective students and their families. It’s wonderful to be able to re-connect with these families in the New Year and see their children in our uniform happily playing with new friends. And it’s also nice to see our new families finding new friends and connecting with our culture.

This year, we are cautiously planning to conduct all of our favorite events that our community have grown to love.  These events are designed to connect staff, students and parents as well as promote friendships between long term and new families.  An increasing number of our students study at Parklands for up to 13 years, representing a solid amount of time in which to invest in relationships and belong to our community. I invite all of our families to come to as many events as you can and find a place at Parklands.

2021 has already come with its share of challenges.  A COVID-19 vaccine is just around the corner, but it may be a while yet before we see our nation safely vaccinated.  To this end, I invite us all to be vigilant, stay safe and keep healthy.  Please be mindful of restriction in our community, and play your part to keep us and our school safe.  Parents, whenever you are on site, please keep socially distanced and wash your hands.  Drop and go as much as possible, and if you or your children are sick, please stay home.

I look forward to seeing you all throughout the year.  If you ever have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to email me or make an appointment.  I am out and about most mornings, welcoming students as they start their day.  Feel free to find me as I wonder around, I welcome the connection.

Head of Primary School

Welcome back, I trust you took the opportunity to meet the Primary teachers at the Back to School BBQ, to ‘settle in’ and become accustomed to Parkland’s processes and procedures?

A special ‘Welcome’ to all our new parents and students. If unsure about anything, please feel free to ask a teacher, TA, Student Services, RTC or myself.

ROSIA RD CARPARK and DROP OFF AREAS

In wishing to keep all our students safe, here is a reminder of what we do to make the “Drop Off”’ process easier, quicker and more practical for parents:                                                                                                                                                         In order to speed up the PREP drop off & sign in, we ask parents to pull into the ‘Prep drop off bays’ just in front of the Prep classes, where staff and Year 6 leaders will be present to assist ‘Preppies’ get bags out and then escort them directly into class.  A teacher at the stairs, with class lists will sign in your prep child without you even having to get out of the car! The Prep student will then follow their day’s procedure once ‘signed in’ and in the classroom!

All Year 1-6 students and parents will follow the “normal” drop off or parking procedures where students can individually walk up or be escorted up to the undercover area by parents once they have parked in the lower car park bays.  If using the Drop Off Area just past the Pedestrian Crossing, please don’t leave your car or park in any of these Drop Off bays. Parents are reminded not to drop off students on the bend near the top exit gate of the Rosia Rd Car Park. If crossing the internal road, please only cross at the Pedestrian Crossing!

ALL student pick up is as per the usual procedure, where parents may park in any available bay and go and collect students from Prep to Yr. 6 Classrooms or Playground. Students are asked to remain in the Undercover Area until 3.30pm unless collected by a guardian or older sibling.                                                                                                                    Please drive slowly (20klm) and carefully through the school car parks, especially vigilant around the pedestrian crossing! Remind students to be careful with bags while moving between cars so as not to cause any marks or damage!

Morning and afternoon procedures

On arrival in the morning, students are to put their bags in the port racks outside their classroom and then make their way to the supervised Undercover Area where they can play games and be ready for the start of day.

In the afternoon students can be collected, signed out on the iPads from 2.30pm onwards in the Undercover Area.

We ask that no students leave the Undercover Area on their own, without a guardian or older sibling BEFORE 3.30pm.

Morning Tea and Lunch Procedures

In wishing to give students the opportunity to eat and play through their day, we’ve extended the morning break time to match lunch, being 30 minutes. Students will sit and eat their food in the Undercover Area for 15 minutes before being released to go and play for the remainder of both breaks.

Uniforms

Can we please ask that you assist us in ensuring the students are correctly dressed in the right uniform each day? We don’t wish to experience students wearing their sport uniforms when not required or to mix and match their academic with sport uniforms. If unsure about uniform items or correct uniform requirements, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher, TA, the RTC or check the school’s website.

Would you please be so kind as to ensure that ALL uniform items, lunch and water bottles are clearly labeled with the student’s name?

Communication

Can I please take this time to remind you of important information about Primary School communication procedures?

  1. Teachers ask that IF you have a concern or question about class work, assignments, class process or procedure, class bahaviour, calendar events etc. that you please contact the teachers directly. They are your first port of call!
  2. If you require information about specialist lessons, please contact the following specific staff members directly:
    HPE – Mr. Werner,
    Music – Mrs. Patane,
    Art – Mrs. Bazley,
    Library – Mrs. Jill Kerr
    Student Services – Mrs. Oxley or Mrs. Abolins
    RTC & LE – Mr. Crawford, Mrs. Broughton, or Mrs. Jo Anderson
  3. If you wish to discuss a matter further after having spoken to the relevant teacher, would you kindly then contact me through Student Services?

AUSLAN (LOTE – Language other than English)

We are very excited to announce the continuation of AUSLAN (sign language) in Years 5 to 8 at Parklands. Dr. Beth Tailby, a completely DEAF, very accomplished Auslan teacher will be presenting lessons to the Primary Yr. 5 & 6 students on a Thursday for a semester each.

Students will learn the alphabet, numbers etc. and the basic art of being able to sign!

 Protecting our Anaphylactic students

‘Anaphylaxis is an allergic reaction which is potentially life threatening. It should always be treated as a medical emergency, requiring immediate treatment! Most cases of anaphylaxis occur after a person with a severe allergy is exposed to the allergen to which they are allergic – usually a food, insect sting or medication’.

The intent of this article is to assist in preventing anaphylaxis and to provide advice for minimizing the risk of anaphylaxis at Parklands, including our “Before and After School Hours Care facility”.

On advice from Anaphylaxis Australia, we do not have a ‘total Nut-Free school’ because there are so many different allergens such as dairy and some fruits, the total focus cannot only be on nuts.

Of course we wish to do all we can to protect those students who could have an Anaphylactic reaction so we at school have put in steps / measures to protect them and this is what we ask parents to do to assist us.

  • We ask that IF possible, you kindly avoid sending in:
  • Any fresh nuts
  • Muesli bars or biscuits that list nuts as an ingredient
  • Packages of mixed fruit that contain nuts
  • Talk to the teacher before sending food to school for parties.
  • If your child eats peanut butter before school, please make sure they wash their hands before coming to school.

Products with a “may contain traces of nuts” warning is ok to bring to school but just should not be shared. In this instance, also remind students to wash their hands after eating such products! Thank you for your understanding, patience, flexibility and support in this regard.                                                 Please don’t hesitate to ask a teacher or staff member if there is ANYTHING you need clarified!

Looking forward to a great year of working together!

Thank you

Head of Middle School

Welcome back to a great year. All students are now on site and working through timetabled lessons after our orientation programs have been completed. It is great to see year 9 back after their camp, which was a great success.

Year 9 Camp

Camp was a great experience for the students. We had 76 students enjoying the fun and challenge of the Bornhoffen Camp grounds for three days – great way to spend the first three days of Year 9.

Students got to experience Abseiling, High Ropes, Team Building activities, Low Ropes course, and a Creek Walk activity through rocks and rapids. Students were challenged to push themselves past fears of heights, and to work together to successfully navigate various obstacles and challenges.

Alongside this were the evening games of Spotlight and Sardines, and the creation and cooking of damper through the middle of intermittent rain. (A massive thank you to Mr Braun for braving the rain to save the fire and the damper). The cook-up was a great success in the end.

A special thanks to the staff who assisted with the camp. Mrs Folcher, Mrs Harder, Mrs Crook, Mr Prevett, and especially Mr Braun for leading the camp. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

Communication with Teachers

It is important to keep open lines of communication regarding the learning journeys of your children. We, as a college, are here to assist your child’s learning to the best of our ability. But it is a team effort. You know your child best, and we are here to work with you for the best outcomes.

If you need to contact a teacher, the best method is an email directly to them. If you have questions or concerns regarding homework, assessment, or student progress, please feel free to email and our teachers will be only too happy to answer.

There will be two sessions this year to be able to connect with your child’s teachers in person: beginning of term 2 and term 3. I would encourage you to take the time when this occurs to meet with the teachers and discuss together the pathway to success that you can help us to create.

Year 9 Subjects

Our year 9 students start the journey of elective subjects this year – subjects which they have chosen to suit their own personal learning journey. Sometimes these selections can be made incorrectly, and a realisation comes that ‘I wish I was in a different subject’. Students have until the end of week 3 (Feb 12) to submit a change-of-subject form and talk with me about their change of subject. This form requires a parent signature also, so they will talk with you about it.

Students will be notified of the approval via email, and will be free to attend the new subject from that point onwards. Past the cut-off date, students are committing to a full semester of study, with the next opportunity for change available in the beginning of term 3 (July).

Year One

Welcome to our 2021 school year!

We had an amazing first week! Although it was short, it was a perfect start to help the Year 1’s settle back into school life.
We are so looking forward to what this year holds and cannot wait to be a part of your child’s learning journey.
We will have lots to learn throughout the year and hope to encourage your child to love learning as they reach their personal goals!
Our start to Year 1 involved learning new classroom routines and getting to know each other through small group games and activities. This term, we will be learning all about Families – Past and Present, weather and seasons and healthy living all the while, extending our oral, and written vocabulary and reading fluency and accuracy.
We can’t wait to show you all we learn along the way!
Take care!
the Year One Team!

Year 7 News

Year 7 have officially started the academic year!

This year as a part of orientation, students, their Pastoral Care teachers, Mr. Elvery, Mrs. Braun, as well as the student’s main subject teachers had two days of connection, learning about Secondary school and fun.

The students, in their Pastoral Care classes participated in activities designed to form connections and bond as a class and cohort, as well as establish powerful relationships with their teachers. They went on a scavenger hunt around the college with Mr. Elvery, played games and bonded with their Pastoral Care teacher and discussed their goals for the year and received their Year 7 wristband with Mrs. Braun.

The students were also immersed in the setting up of iPads, learning to use their new college diary and the processes and daily organisation needed in Secondary.

Being organised and prepared for class can be a struggle for many Year 7 students. Previously, they may have had a tidy tray or place in a single classroom to keep their belongings. Whereas, now they are moving around classrooms, carrying materials required for a morning, middle and afternoon session, and remembering different subject requirements for different days.

Some ideas to help organise your child are to:

  • Have an area set aside for school items
  • Only pack for what is needed for the day
  • Have a separate box for books and texts not used that day
  • Label all items
  • Have the timetable and booklist on display
  • Pack the night before
  • Talk to your child about how being organised is a healthy habit and skill that can be transferred to their sport team, music lesson, part-time job and life in the coming years. Not just a chore you use for school.

Being organised is a skill and healthy habit that takes time and a lot of practice. You child will need a lot of help, a lot of reminders and a lot of love to develop this skill.

Thank you to the many parents and students who attended the annual Back to School Barbeque on Monday night. It was wonderful to meet and connect with so many families within our college.

If you have any queries, you may contact us via the College office on 3380 4200 or via email at: abraun@parklands.qld.edu.au

Student Care and Wellbeing

Understanding the Responsible Thinking Classroom

A lot of us grew up with detention in school – I know I did. Detention is typically a place where a student will sit for a period of time and a) do nothing, b) write lines, c) pick up rubbish or some other task under supervision. Usually these tasks have very little learning attached to them and is more about wasting a student’s own time for their misconduct.

As an RTP Facilitator, one of the misconceptions that I often hear is that the RTC is for “naughty” students and sometimes the RTC is perceived as a “detention” for these naughty students to come and be punished. When one looks from the outside in, with little education or understanding around the RTC, I understand how people can perceive the RTC to be this way. A child demonstrates a disruptive behaviour and leaves the classroom to attend the RTC due to this. Sounds like detention or punishment right? Wrong.

Detention has a negative connotation attached to it, where the RTC rather, is a space for students to learn responsibility, self-control and to devise strategies for positive life choices. It is very different to a detention as the student is thinking, self- reflecting, learning to think from another person’s perspective and developing a plan for future.

Where staff would usually supervise a detention, the RTP Facilitators exist to provide emotional support, to positively challenge and coach students through this process and then support them to re-engage in class and put their plan into place. Very different to detention.

To find out more about the responsible thinking process please go to our website at http://parklands.qld.edu.au/behaviour-education-rtp/

The Friendship 8

Conflict is a normal part of life. Teaching our kids how to resolve some of these friendship conflicts at school can be as simple as practicing these 8 steps:

How can you help your child resolvefriendship concerns?

Encourage them to try the ‘Friendship 8’

Ask them to let you know how they went and praise them for successfully putting these strategies into practice.

Remind your child about the importance of forgiveness and moving on.

Encourage your child to talk to their teacher if they have tried these friendship steps and still have been unable to resolve it.

If your child has been through these steps OR the seriousness warrants, encourage your child to report to the RTC.

Snippets

Throughout the term teachers send the RTP Facilitators positive feedback about students via our Operation Snippet initiative. Staff members can also be sent snippets from other staff, students and parents. If you would like to honour any staff member in the school for their hard work please send a snippet to rtc-staff@parklands.qld.edu.au or ajackman@parklands.qld.edu.au and we will make sure that it is passed on as a lego block.

Here are some great snippets we have had the privilege of giving to a student and staff member.

“This student did an excellent job reading this morning during a reading comprehension assessment. I am proud of the effort he gave to both his reading and to trying words he did not recognise.”

“Thank you for all of the time and effort you give to your staff. I feel grateful for the support that you give to me personally and I’m sure that many others feel the same. Thank you for your kindness and for seeing the best in people. It’s a pleasure working with you.”

Thank you for supporting this initiative and for helping us build each other up.

Silent Signals

The Silent Signals are a way for our primary students to silently communicate with their classmates and teachers during class, without disrupting the lesson. Students may ask their teacher a question using the rocket hand, ask to go to the toilet or ask their neighbour to please be silent so they can listen. We encourage our students to try these out and you may even like to practice these at home. Talk to your child today if you would like to practice the Silent Signals at home.

Scroll down to see examples of the silent signals students have created to help them communicate with each other and the teacher more effectively.

PCC Instrumental Music

Eph 5:18b-19 “Instead be filled with the Holy Spirit, singing psalms & hymns & spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts.”

Welcome again to 2021! This year promises to be another year of growth & excitement in the Parklands Instrumental Music Programme as we welcome our new Give It A Go! students and continue to encourage our existing students to continue to learn & grow. There are lots of ways for your child to be involved in music at Parklands, and our prayer is that they would learn not only the technical skills of playing instruments & singing, but that they would also come to do what the above verse says, making music in their hearts to the Lord. What better way to live!

Lessons & Rehearsals

Most Instrumental music lessons have commenced in week 2 of Term 1, with the exception of Give It A Go! lessons which will commence in week 3. Choir & Ensemble rehearsals are also beginning in the first few weeks of Term 1, again with the exception of the Give It A Go! Band which will commence in Term 2. Primary Choirs & Wind Ensemble will commence in week 3, while Secondary Choir is scheduled to begin in week 2.

Ensembles & Choirs include:

–       Primary Junior Choir (Year 2 & 3)
–       Primary Senior Choir (Years 4-6)
–       Secondary Choir (Years 7-12)
–       Wind Ensemble (Years 4-12, woodwind, brass & percussion students with minimum 12 months experience)
–       Give It A Go! Band (Year 4, beginner band for woodwind, brass & percussion students in the GIAG programme)

All Choirs are open to students regardless of whether or not they’re having lessons, and no experience is necessary. The Give It A Go! Band is generally reserved for students in the Give It A Go! Programme as it caters for beginner students. Students wanting to play in the Wind Ensemble should consider having lessons either at school or outside of school to improve their skills.

Give It A Go! Band Programme

We’re excited to be welcoming our next group of Give It A Go! students this year. Emails will be going home to Year 4 students in the next few weeks with more information, but this is an exciting development in our Give It A Go! Band Programme. If you or your child are interested in being a part of this programme, please read the point 1 below regarding costs & inclusions.

Instruments on offer in the Give It A Go! Band Programme include:

–       Flute
–       Clarinet
–       Saxophone
–       Trumpet
–       Trombone
–       Percussion (includes drums, auxiliary & mallet percussion)

There are a number of ways to be part of our growing Instrumental Programme – here’s how your child can be involved:

  1. Give It A Go! Band Programme – Year 4 students only

This is a one year beginner programme for Year 4 students, giving them the opportunity to learn a woodwind, brass or percussion instrument in small groups during school time. There is a one-off $400 levy for the year which covers all lessons & band rehearsals, a tuition book & use of a school instrument for one year. Many places for this are currently filled, however we do have a number of vacancies across most instruments. If your child is in Year 4 & would like to be involved, please contact us at instruments@parklands.qld.edu.au

  1. Private lessons

Private lessons are available for piano, guitar, drum kit, voice, most woodwind & and all brass & stringed instruments. Lessons are scheduled mostly during school time, & fees are billed by & payable directly to the instrumental teachers at $30/30mins.

The Friendlies

It was fantastic being able to see so many families last week as they dropped their kids back to school. Such a great way to start the year having a 3-day week to ease the kids back into those early wake-up calls! They all seemed to settle quickly back into the school routine.

I love how our community really is able to connect together at events like the “Back to School BBQ”. There were so many new families and heaps of familiar faces there that we were able to say hello and have a chat with. Having a strong connection with each other is what our school is all about. Apart from learning of course!

 The Friendlies meetings are always open and welcoming to any families within our Parklands community. If you would like to be kept updated on all things Friendlies just email friendlies@parklands.qld.edu.au
