Thursday 9 May, 2019 | Term 2, Week 2
IN THIS ISSUE:

Dear Parents and Friends,

It is wonderful to be back together again after our beautiful Easter break. It was a busy time with Easter celebrations and then commemorating Anzac Day with services across the country.

In our Catholic tradition we honour and recognise Jesus’ resurrection from the dead, and His glorious promises of eternal life. We know from the Gospels that Jesus rose from the dead on the third day following his crucifixion. His resurrection marks the triumph of good over evil, sin and death. Since Easter represents the fulfillment of God's promises to mankind, it is the most important holiday on the Christian calendar.

We marked ANZAC Day on our first day back with our student leaders leading us in prayer to help us remember all who lost their lives through Australia's involvement in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations. On this day, we especially remembered the courageous actions undertaken by the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps during the First World War. We prayed for the airmen, sailors and soldiers who died in battle, sacrificing their lives while on duty. We commemorated their bravery and prayed for the families who lost loved ones. As we strive for peace in our country and world, help us to become instruments of your peace each day with each and every encounter we have. Peace begins with me. Lest we forget is a deeply moving sentiment but it is about gratitude not glory. Our forebears sacrificed their lives for their country and the lifestyle we appreciate today.

Processing the unimaginable horror of the recent terrorist attacks in New Zealand causes us to reflect on the work we need to do to protect our society from the language of hatred and division. Each day at school we speak about being here for the other and respecting diversity.

 

On Monday mornings we say “I’m OK and you’re OK” and that we look out for and after each other.

I am delighted to let you know that Mrs Jenny Hayek has joined our teaching team as a Teacher’s Aid and will be supporting the teachers and students in Year 1 for the remainder of the year. Please introduce yourself to her when you have the opportunity.

Welcome Jenny! It is great to have you with us.

In addition to this letter I have attached information about the Australian Opera visit in Week 5 and also a letter from the Leadership Team from CEDP and our Vicar General for Education in response to the horrific terrorist attacks in Christchurch and Sri Lanka.

Have a wonderful week!

 

Mrs Jeanette Black

Principal

"In many countries May is the month of Mary.
May the Mother of God accompany us and protect Christians in fighting against the forces of evil. Let us entrust ourselves to her
and pray for the Church and for peace in the world.

By the Light of the Moon                 
Opera Australia's Visit to St Madeleine's


We are delighted to have Opera Australia visit us again this year on Wednesday 5th June. The performance is titled “By the Light of the Moon” and it will be a revisit of the well known poem The Owl and the Pussycat. The two performances will be at 10am for students in K - 2 and 11.30am for our students in Yrs 3 - 6. You are most welcome to attend!

 

By the light of the Moon combines the spirit of nonsense with the greatest hits of opera to offer young people and their families a magical insight into both art forms, and all wrapped up in an enchanting story that explores the many different ways that love can bring happiness into our lives.

 

The story is a reimagining of Edward Lear’s enduringly popular poem The owl and the Pussycat and seeks to answer the question of why this odd couple goes to sea in a pea green boat and what they get up to during their voyage of a year and a day. As it turns out, they’re on a quest to find the meaning of love, which they eventually do following a series of curious encounters with characters inspired by figures from nursery rhymes. Each encounter focuses on a different form of love - romantic love, the love of creation, the love of family and friends, the love of self and the love of life - with the aim of guiding young people towards a greater understanding of the emotion that makes the world go round.

 

Being a musical comedy, there’s lots of music with eight of opera’s most famous arias and duets being imaginatively reinterpreted to suit the style and content of the production. Meanwhile the comedy comes not only from the peculiar situations and characters, but also the style and language of nonsense verse and prose. In terms of the scale of the piece, there are only four performers - one who plays the cat, another who plays the owl and two more who share the roles of the Queen of Heart, Old King Cole, Miss Muffet’s spider, the contrary gardener Mary, and the Three Blind Mice.

 

The music of an opera is as much a part of the drama as the costumes and scenery. It helps to create the story, by setting the mood or drawing an imaginary landscape, to take the performers and audience to a different place or time.

Please join us at the Opera at St Madeleine’s on 5th June.

 

A  statement from all leaders in Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta reaffirming that we stand in solidarity with all peoples of faith and reject those whose language fosters hatred and intolerance of difference.

Message from Most Rev Vincent Long Van Nguyen OFM Conv

On 17 March, Bishop of Parramatta Most Rev Vincent Long Van Nguyen OFM Conv made a strong statement about the terrorist attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand. We share Bishop Vincent’s horror, grief and distress at this senseless violence and loss of life. 
 
Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta condemns Islamophobic, racist and extremist violence in all its forms. Together, we take up the invitation of Pope Francis and the Grand Imam, Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, to “all persons who have faith in God and faith in human fraternity, to unite and work together so that it may serve as a guide for future generations to advance a culture of mutual respect in the awareness of the great divine grace that makes all human beings brothers and sisters.” (Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together, Abu Dhabi, 4 February 2019).
 
As leaders in our school communities and the Catholic Education Office, we reject the language of racism and intolerance, and proudly commit ourselves to work together for mutual respect and human solidarity.

This statement, issued on 12 April 2019, is made on behalf of the leadership of 80 Catholic systemic schools as well as system leaders from the Diocese of Parramatta.

Message from the Very Rev Christopher de Souza

Please find attached an important message from the Very Rev Christopher de Souza, the Vicar General on the recent bombings in Sri Lanka.

Watching my own children become parents is an unexpected parenting joy.

Not in the light-hearted ‘your-turn-has-come’ way where older generations delight in watching their own children endure the same sleepless nights, naughty toddler behaviour and teenage rebelliousness that they experienced as parents.

The joy for me lies in watching my adult kids protect, teach, nurture and  support their children, in the timehonored way that parents have done for generations. This work, also known as generative parenting, was outlined by American psychologists and researchers Dollahite, Hawkins and Brotherson in the 1990’s.

Also known as mother work (and father work), generative parenting refers to the instinctive activities of parents that enable the next generation to survive and thrive. These activities range from providing kids with food and shelter and other basic needs through to developing more complex skills in their kids such as working with others, adapting to change and developing the resourcefulness needed for full independence.

Like most parents my daughters want to be the best parents they can be so they both devour parenting books, attend courses when they can and join online chat groups for support and ideas.

But it’s their mother work, their instinctive work, that’s their most potent parenting force. Here’s why.

Mother work is protective
When my eldest daughter visits our house she does a quick reconnaissance trip through each room, lifting errant blind cords and removing heavy objects, to make our house safe for her two boys to move around. The protective side is strong.

Mother work is educative
When my youngest daughter patiently explains to her exuberant young three year old that she needs to allow other children to share her toys, she is doing important teaching work. That requires super patience.

Mother work is nurturant
The safety my daughters provide when they wrap their arms around their children when they’ve fallen and hurt themselves comes naturally to them.

Mother work is supportive
The emotional support these young women provide to their children when they’ve been upset by the thoughtless or rough behaviours of siblings and friends is often hard work. But they are up to the task.

My daughters’ mother work will continue well into their children’s teen years and beyond. The nature of the work will change with each developmental stage but the intent of the work –to nurture, protect, teach and support – will stay the same.

Men can do this work too, but they do it differently. When a mother instinctively protects she generally draws her child closer before searching out the source of fear. There’ll be lots of cuddles before she puts a nightlight on to ease a child’s fear of the dark.

When a father instinctively protects he’s more likely to eliminate the source of fear, and skill his child up to fend for themselves. He’ll prove there’s nothing to be scared of when the light goes out, and show his child how to turn on the light when needed. Both are valid approaches, and are indicative of the gender differences in child-rearing.

This Mother’s Day, it’s my daughters’ instinctive mother work that I’ll celebrate, as that is real magic of parenting.

Happy Mother’s Day.


Sunday 12 May 2019: Fourth Sunday of Easter- Year C

Jn 10:27-30
A reading from the holy Gospel according to John

I give my sheep eternal life. 

Jesus said:

‘The sheep that belong to me listen to my voice;

I know them and they follow me.

I give them eternal life;

they will never be lost

and no one will ever steal them from me.

The Father who gave them to me is greater than anyone,

and no one can steal from the Father.

The Father and I are one.’

Parent Information Session - Reading K to 2

Last term, St Madeleine’s facilitated a parent information session on reading, with a focus on K to 2. This workshop focused on informing parents about how we teach reading in the early years of school, including an overview of the strategies used to develop effective comprehension and decoding skills.

 

Depending on parent interest, we are considering facilitating a second workshop for those parents who could not attend in term 1. If you would like the opportunity to attend, could you please register your interest via email at stmadeleines@parra.catholic.edu.au. The proposed date for the workshop is Friday 17th May at 9am in the library. Interested parents will be emailed to confirm.

 

This workshop also served as an introduction for parents who would like to assist in their child’s classroom. It is essential that parents are well informed in order to effectively support teachers during the literacy block. It is a requirement that parents who would like to assist in the classroom, attend this information session and complete the ‘Child Protection Training’ using the link below.

http://childprotection.parra.catholic.edu.au/home

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or your child’s classroom teacher.

NAPLAN 2019

During weeks 3 and 4 students in years 3, 5, 7 and 9 will participate in NAPLAN. As you are aware, the assessments are now facilitated through an online platform for reading, writing, conventions of language (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and numeracy. Year 3 writing, however, is administered as a paper-based test.

 

The schedule of assessments at St Madeleine’s will be as follows:

If you know your child is going to be absent on any of the assessment dates, could you please notify the office as soon as possible. Any questions or concerns regarding NAPLAN, please do not hesitate to contact myself or your child’s classroom teacher. Please find following some further information regarding tailored testing.

The tailored test design of NAPLAN Online

NAPLAN Online uses a tailored test design, which adapts to student responses in real time and present students with questions that are more or less difficult based on a student’s test performance.

 

The adaptive nature of the tests means students are more likely to stay engaged with the tests as they receive questions better suited to their ability, allowing children to show what they can do rather than just what they can’t. Feedback from schools that took NAPLAN Online in 2018 confirmed students find the online assessment engaging.

 

Students who find questions difficult early in the test are given some questions of lower complexity, more suited to their performance. These students are less likely to become discouraged as they progress through the tests. High-achieving students are given questions they will find more challenging.

 

A student’s NAPLAN result is based on both the number and difficulty of questions the student answers correctly. A student who completes a more complex pathway is more likely to achieve a higher result (and a higher band placement) than a student who answers the same number of questions correctly but follows a less complex pathway.

The following link provides information on Tailored Testing.

Jodi Jefferson
Assistant Principal

Welcome to Term Two. PDH has kicked off this term with some interesting and engaging learning.

During Wellbeing, the students have continued to practise strategies for healthy minds, bodies and spirits through their various weekly activities.

K-2 Engaged in reflective practice where they thought about the good and the bad of the week and discussed using this to guide them through any challenges and celebrations they might face the following week. They also spent some time highlighting.

Sarah Glettner
Health and Wellbeing Teacher

Years Kindergarten, 1 & 2:
In week 8 we learnt about being mindful. Mindfulness is a skill that needs to be practised. It’s when you block out all distractions and focus on one thing. What a challenge!

 

Week 10 was all about looking at the strengths of others. When we know the strengths of others, we know who we can go to when we need help for different things.

Years 3 & 4 

Last week in Stage 2, we discussed our own strengths. Understanding our strengths can allow us to help others and share this gift.


In week 10 we discussed the skill of reflection. When we reflect on our week it helps us to see what was good and not so good so we can celebrate or learn from this.

Years 5 & 6

To start our fortnight in Wellbeing, Stage 3 explored Dr Howard Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences. Dr Gardner believes that we are all intelligent in different ways. We might demonstrate intelligence  in music, nature, relationships with others, or understanding mathematics. Realising our intelligences in different aspects helps us form a better understanding of our identity.

 

Week 10 was all about strengths and limitations. Understanding our strengths and limitations also helps us understand our identity.


Stage 3 Touch Gala Day

 

On Friday 12th April, 5 teams from Year 5 and 6 attended a Touch Football Gala Day. It was a wonderful day to finish off Term 1.


Congratulations to the two teams who were undefeated and won their pool – Skye Melrose, Maja Susnjara, Lilly Sakkal, Chloe Boston, Charlize Zreiby, Hannah Tran, Mylea Abood, Sienna Bonello, Grace Liddle, Sienna Angles-Corke, Isabella Chiha.

Approaching the School & Complaint Handling

 

At St Madeleine’s Primary School, the dignity of each person is valued and the rights of all members of our community are respected. From time to time concerns may arise or parents of the school community may need to approach the school in order to: 

• Discuss the progress or welfare of own child

• Express concern about actions of other students

• Enquire about school policy or practice

• Express concern about actions of staff

• Express concerns about actions of another parent 

It is therefore necessary to have procedures that will help solve problems as soon as possible so that a safe and harmonious school environment is maintained. The best results usually flow from working together. 

These guidelines aim to:

  • Provide a guide in order that concerns are dealt with in an open and fair manner.
  • Ensure that the rights of students, teachers and parents are respected and upheld.
  • Support sensitivity and confidentiality.
  • Help reach an agreed solution

On occasion, concerns may cause frustration and anxiety. At such times it is always important to organise a time to talk with school staff in an unhurried and confidential atmosphere.  NB: No parent should directly approach another person’s child. The school will deal with issues between students as part of the school’s Student Management and Pastoral Care Policies.  

CONCERN 

The academic progress of own child

APPROPRIATE ACTION 

Directly contact the child’s teacher either by note, by phone or in person to arrange a suitable time to discuss any issues.


The welfare of own child


For minor issues directly contact your child’s teacher to clarify information.

For more serious concerns, contact office. State nature of concern and arrange a suitable time to talk with class teacher or appropriate staff member.

To convey information about change of address, telephone number, emergency contact, custody details, health issues etc please contact the office.


Actions of other students


Contact the class teacher for a classroom or playground problem.

Please note: It is against the law (Section 60E) of the Crimes Act to approach any other person’s child at school. The offence committed by a parent approaching a child is intimidation.


School policy or practice


Contact office state nature of concern and make an appointment to see the Principal and/or appropriate member of staff.


Actions of a staff member


Contact the office and state concerns to the principal.

Arrange to meet directly with the principal and staff member concerned.


Actions of a parent


Contact the office and state concerns to the principal.

Arrange to meet directly with the principal.

 

If at any stage you feel you are not satisfied with the solutions offered or believe you have not been given a fair hearing or your feel your concern has not been addressed to your satisfaction, then you are encouraged to make an appointment with the Assistant Principal or Principal to discuss the issues further. 

If the matter is not resolved by the school Leadership Team, parents will be offered the phone number to contact the Catholic Education Office. 

The recommended procedure for students is:

  • If issues arise in the classroom students are encouraged to speak to their class teacher in order to
  • seek assistance in finding a resolution.
  • Children encountering problems on the playground are asked to follow the “What to do if someone
  • is annoying me” procedure and if they continue to have problems they are instructed to then talk to
  • the teacher on duty at the time of the incident. If they believe that their concern has not been
  • adequately addressed they are encouraged to speak to their class teacher.
  • Children have the right at all times to speak to the Principal, Assistant Principal or any other staff
  • member about issues, complaints or grievances they might have.

 

Absences & SMS Messaging


Absences from School

In the event of your child being absent from school the school will send an SMS to you. Please reply before 2pm with a simple explanation e.g. sick, unwell, appt or leave. This is all that is needed, and no written note is necessary. We require a SMS for our records otherwise your child’s absence will be marked as unexplained.

Should your child be absent for more than two days please notify the school by telephone or email.

Partial absences also require a reason by law and this is to be recorded and signed by the parent upon late arrival or early dismissal.

Reminder notes for days away without explanation are routinely sent home throughout the term.

This is how the system will work:

  1. Each morning at 9am, the teacher will take the class roll electronically.
  2. If your child arrives after 9am, you must accompany your child to the office to sign a late note.
  3. Parents must not drop their children at the classroom after the bell.
  4. After 9.30am, the office will send an SMS to the parent’s phone notifying them of the child’s absence.
  5. Please reply asap when you receive the SMS before 2pm please.
  6. The reply must include the child’s name and a valid reason only for the absence.

You may also phone the school, submit a skoolbag submission or email stmadeleines@parra.catholic.edu.au explaining your child’s absence.

 

The SMS reply will act as the note explaining the child’s absence, so no paper note, email or phone call will need to be sent into school.
