Principal’s Message

Greetings.

Once there was a time when all official items for the school community came through this Newsletter, and then Facebook was invented. I am aware that most who will read this Newsletter have a Facebook interaction. Last month, through a process of different communications to different audiences, the Facebook readers became aware that I was talking to Gary Cully about Parklands. So I thought I should try and clarify this for the school community.

Next week I celebrate the start of my 70th year of life. This means my 69th birthday. As I look back and reflect on those years I remember the adventures, the school days, the heartaches, my early days in the field of engineering, and the journey in leading two Christian Schools. I have had a wonderful life. In reflecting on this, I see two things that have clearly guided my life to this point. They are “saying yes” to the call of God when those moments came, and learning to trust God and allow Him to change me during very difficult times in my life.

I am now very aware that “age does weary us”. I used to run 1hr 22min half marathons in my early forties, but at the last Cross Country day, I was unable to catch the little runner who did his best to beat me home. It is a delight for me to come to school and do the job that I love. However, it is only an interim role as I move slowly but surely towards old age. I am still young at heart, but l know I am not as sharp as I used to be.

Many are now aware that I have been talking to Gary, who helped me build this school, starting with the role of teacher in the first Year 8 class and eventually becoming the Head of Secondary School. If all goes according to plan, he will join with me in the school from the start of 2020 to assist me in my role, and any further appointment would then be for the Board of the school to announce.

Another major event coming in the next few weeks is a National Election.

Independent schools are generally comfortable with what each potential government is prepared to offer in recurrent funding to assist families who chose an Independent School for their children. The issue of concern is more about the freedoms we enjoy in this country. We have all seen campaigns over our lifetime to give all citizens in Australia equality as stated in the rules of the Nation. However, there are issues arising where people are wanting to reduce the freedoms enjoyed by a part of the community because of conflict with another issue. This is the case currently with Freedom of Religion as defined in a public utility such as a school.

We care for all in our school and this aligns with our Christian purpose, but we believe that a community of a Christian School needs to be able to select people who hold to both the value of teaching and the commitment to Christian purpose. We remain hopeful that both major parties will support this fundamental right.

The school continues to grow towards a full two stream from Prep to Yr 12. There is the continuing issue that most classes are full. Our full Primary classes coming through to transition to Secondary are giving little space for extra student intake. As we approach the start of 2020, we are advising enquiring families that many of our classes are full and additions can only come from gaps in existing classes. It should be noted that when gaps occur, we offer these to students on our Waiting List which means students are now coming into the upper grades of primary in preparation for secondary schooling at Parklands.

A school needs to be planned in land, resources, finance and education. This I have done carefully from its beginning to this time. There are two guiding principles that I have held to in building Parklands that come from my previous experience in Townsville.

The first is that big, crowded schools are not necessarily a good thing, and secondly, the senior school needs a variety of resources to allow students to achieve their potential. These must be in place to ensure continued growth in the senior years. We have the Resource Centre, Science Labs, Manual Arts, Music Centre and Sports fields. We recently added a large Sports Centre and a Hospitality Centre. Our future planning will include Drama and Engineering facilities. We continue to buy land when it becomes available.

Our next emerging project is to plan a three stream Primary School on the location of our first demountables. This will be a long drawn out process with several stages of development, and high demands on our finances. The end result will eventually be a three stream Primary then continuing into a three stream Secondary. This will allow us to have two medium sized parts to our school with each offering students the potential to develop their gifts and talents.
This is my dream for Parklands.

Head of Primary

Year 3, 5, 7 & 9 NAPLAN Testing

“The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) is an annual assessment for students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9. It has been an annual event for schools since 2008.
A reminder we have our annual Year 3 & 5 National Testing again this term. Staff have steadily been preparing these students for the various tests and look forward to seeing their results later in the year. Would Year 3 & 5 parent please provide their child with a good breakfast and ensure they are at school on time these days:
• Tuesday 14th May — Language conventions & Writing
• Wednesday 15th May — Reading
• Thursday 16th May — Numeracy
• Friday 17th May — Catch-up tests for students absent on 14, 15 or 16th May.

Please remember that NAPLAN results are only a ‘snap shot’ and not a full, true reflection of your child’s academic performance! It would be best to look at the NAPLAN results in consultation with the Term 2 report results and the teacher’s comments from their interview.

If you don’t wish for your child to do the NAPLAN Testing, please feel free to contact Mrs. Jo Anderson – in the Learning Enrichment Department.

Chapels

We have enjoyed wonderful times in Chapel, now on a Tuesday afternoon. It’s been great to see so many parents and grandparents joining us as we listen to memory verses, sing a couple of songs, hear a story from Mr. B and esteem our ‘student of the week and awardees’. I can honestly say that Chapels are the highlight of my week!
A very big “Thank you” needs to go out to all the amazing people who have made Chapel possible each week: Mr. Holman, Mrs. Bazley and Patane for the IT / lighting and sound, Mr. Baskerville for his words of wisdom, teachers and students for leading song worship, Miss Rachel Baskerville & Strubin for the announcing awards, Mrs. Lowe for doing up the award power point slides, teachers attending to the classes and staff and parents preparing the students for their memory verse. Without everyone playing their part, Chapels would not be as enjoyable as they are, Thank you!

Communication

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

Class Teachers ask that IF you have a concern or question about class work, assignments, process or procedure, behaviour, calendar events etc. that you please contact them directly. They are your first port of call.

– If you require information about any of the following areas, please contact the specific staff member concerned directly:
Specialist lessons (HPE – Mr. Lewis, Music – Mrs. Patane, Art – Mrs. Bazley, Library – Mrs. Bayer or
Student Services – Mrs. Oxley, Mrs. Swinn or
RTC – Ms. Godwin, Mr.Crawford, Mrs. Broughton, Miss Robinson or
LE – Mrs. Jo Anderson

If you don’t get resolve or wish to discuss the matter further after having spoken to a teacher, would you kindly then contact myself, Grant Jakins through Student Services?

Profile Preview Afternoon and Profile Evening

A big ‘Thank you’ to all those parents that took the opportunity to visit classrooms to see their child’s profile and took extra time to catch up with teachers on the Profile Preview afternoon. This assisted to reduce the set interview process on our formal Profile Evening!
If you haven’t as yet met with your child’s teacher and still wish to do so, please make an appointment to see them at a mutually agreed upon time.

Car Park Speed and Vigilance

A reminder to please slow down (20klm) and drive very carefully through the school car parks, especially vigilant around the Prep area and pedestrian crossing! Students have been reminded to stop, look right, left and right before walking over the crossing but can I ask that you take it for granted, that they will not do the correct thing. Please also remind students to be careful with bags while moving between cars so as not to cause any marks or damage.

A big Thank YOU to Mrs. Ann Schatkowski who does an amazing job keeping everyone safe when using the pedestrian crossing!

Parent Support and Involvement

Learning isn’t bound by the school gates. Research indicates that ongoing parental involvement in children’s learning reaps benefits in many ways, including shaping positive attitudes to learning and supporting student achievement. Finding practical ideas for parents to engage in learning in a way that is fun and purposeful takes time that classroom teachers don’t always have.

Learning Potential Resources can help. This parent-friendly website is free to access and provides a range of literacy and numeracy activities designed to support the Australian Curriculum for primary school children.

Visit the Learning Potential Resources website

Browse by year level band and discover:
• Everyday ideas – simple activities for home and out and about
• Practise together – offline activities to reinforce literacy and numeracy skills
• Practise online – interactive games and videos.
Enjoy the time spent learning and having fun together.

Year 1

Welcome back to Term 2!

We have hit the ground running in Year 1 and everyone was excited to catch up with friends and share all about our holidays. We also had the opportunity to watch a beautiful puppet theatre show about life in the reef! It was wonderful.

As always, in Term 2, we will have a heavy focus on literacy. We are learning about Recounts in English and will be extending our knowledge and use of reading strategies to help us become remarkable readers!

We are continuing our unit on Past and Present in HASS and Science is going to see us participating in some cool experiments as we learn about Physical and Chemical Changes.

Can’t wait to see what term 2 has in store for us!

Mrs Clausen, Mrs Davis and Mrs Marsh

Year 5

At the beginning of this term, Year 5 visited the Caboolture Historical Village.  This trip helped the students to go back in time to over one hundred years ago, where they experienced aspects of school and life in that era.  The students participated in four activities and were immersed in life during the colonial time.  The eye opening job of washing without a machine, making machinery and tools without electricity and only the skills of a blacksmith, gem sieving and the life of a lone bush ranger, amongst many other elements, really engaged the students.  The day took them on a journey of life over a century ago whilst comparing it to their everyday lives today.  It was a day thoroughly enjoyed by all!

Year 7 News

Welcome back to Term Two!

Term Two is such a busy term in the life of a school with a lot of excursions, incursions, sporting opportunities, the Arts department fiercely rehearsing an upcoming production and Duke of Edinburgh students preparing for their first overnight hike in May.

Attendance – Every Day Counts

Research shows that missing 10 percent of the school, or about 18 days in a school academic year, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month. (“Attendance Matters,” 2018).

Regular school attendance allows your child to:
– Cement learning and understanding
– Connect with their classroom teacher daily, building a relationship of trust and academic integrity
– Receive support with learning, assessment and projects
– Involved themselves in specialist subjects (the arts, sport, design technology and digital technologies)
– Connect with their peers face to face, rather than via other forms of media
– Practice and master organisational and timetabling skills that will be used in further studies and the workplace.

If your child is absent for a day, please ensure that Students Services is contacted. Encourage your child to contact the teachers for the subjects they missed that day so they can complete the classwork. Alternatively, they can check the subject websites (all students know how to do this) to see the content and lessons they missed.

State Champion

Commitment and dedication are two things Emily Fotek demonstrates regularly in her passion of gymnastics. Every afternoon Emily leaves school early to make training on time and work on her routines. Over the Easter school holidays, Emily competed at the Queensland State Gymnastics Championships. The competition was held over 2 days where Emily finished 1st and was crowned Level 8 State Champion. She was also selected in the Queensland State Team to compete at the Australian National Championships in Melbourne May 20th-24th. Congratulations on your selection Emily, and all the best for the Nationals.

Athletics Carnival

In week 2 the college held their annual 9-12yrs and 13-18yrs Track + Field carnivals.

This is always a great opportunity for the students to show their house colours and support each other as they compete in a number of events throughout the day.

The 13-18yrs carnival was won by Joshua 1897 points, defeating Samuel on 1705.

The 9-12yrs canirval was a tight finish with all students competing for their house. Samuel won the day on 1303 points, defeating Joshua on 1281 points.

The 2 carnivals were great days and we thank all staff, volunteers and students for making it one to remember. Congratulations to all the age champions on a huge effort across all events.

Student Care and Wellbeing

Wellbeing and Reporting an Incident

The Parkland’s values of Christlikeness, Learning, Excellence, Attitude and Respect lead us to have the desire to be looking after the wellbeing of our students. The Student Care and Wellbeing team are there to provide the support, encouragement, gentleness, challenge and love that is required for our students to have a good and healthy wellbeing.

We do this in many different ways through programs, courses for parents, presentations, class room visits, individual sessions and referrals to outside services. We want the students to get the best information and understanding on the topics that affect them. Topics such as grief and loss, resilience, interacting with friends, dealing with circumstances of life, working with difficult people, showing honour, being a powerful person, demonstrating loving on purpose and dealing with conflict. These are normal life issues that we face and getting support and learning through these is the best way to be a powerful person.

We know that there will be times when there is conflict at school between people especially in the playground. Energy is high, competitive natures and differing opinions come out through the playing of sports and games in the breaks.  It is good and healthy to have manageable levels of conflict in our lives. As children grow they require the conflict to be able to teach them new skills and understandings in working with people. This is healthy growth, but through this conflict (as we all know through our own experiences) people sometimes make mistakes and do not deal with conflict appropriately. So they need help to be able to learn the skills in respectfully dealing with conflict.

Knowing this, the Student Care and Wellbeing team is the safe place for students to come and learn from this conflict and the mistakes that they have made in their interactions with others. We encourage our students to inform us about an incident that may have occurred in the playground, so that all involved can get the appropriate support for their wellbeing and learning.

The process for reporting an incident:

  1. Student or teacher informs the Student Care and Wellbeing team that an incident has occurred. This is best done ASAP after the incident. The longer the time frame is between an incident and us finding out about it, the harder it is for quick, positive resolution.
  2. Student Care and Wellbeing team will request student/s to complete incident report (where appropriate)
  3. Support is given to the student/s involved in the incident and their physical and emotional wellbeing addressed.
  4. In every circumstance where an incident is reported, a thorough investigation is completed. This includes speaking with the student/s involved, any witnesses and the referring teacher.
  5. The outcome of the investigation is reported to a Head of School.
  6. The student/s are then provided the opportunity to work on a resolution. This may include completing a Responsible Thinking Plan, an apology letter, a support session with a social worker, referral to friendship skills masterclass conflict resolution program, a Head of School discussion or referrals to external support services.

We appreciate your understanding of the college privacy restrictions which mean that we are not able to discuss with you the outcomes related to other students. This also means that your child’s involvement or information is protected from being discussed with others. We will however, advise you if there are any outcomes or actions relating to your child.

Please find the link to the policies relating to this topic –

https://parklands.qld.edu.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/3.60-Policy-Student-Bullying.pdf

https://parklands.qld.edu.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/3.22-Policy-Dispute-Resolution.pdf

Our values and tools of supporting students lead to positive resolutions of conflict. Through this process there are skills to learn for all the students involved. Skills that take repetition and time to learn. Yes, healthy resolution and communication through conflict feels like hard work. Every time they work through a conflict and learn from this experience with the appropriate support from the Student Care and Wellbeing team they are building the skills to be powerful people.

Fire Safety

Most house fires start in the kitchen, so remember:

  • Never leave your cooking unattended
  • Clean your oven, stove and range hood regularly to prevent the build-up of grease and fat which could catch fire
  • Keep tea towels and other flammable items aware from cooking appliances
  • Ensure that dishwashers have completed their cycle before leaving the house
  • Do not use metal items in the microwave
  • Check all electrical appliances and cords for damage
  • If cooking oil catches fire, DO NOT use water and DO NOT pick up the pot. Instead, turn off the heating source if safe to do so, place the lid on the pot, or use a fire blanket as per instructions on the packaging. LEAVE IN PLACE and call Triple Zero (000).
