Life here at St Joseph’s is definitely returning back to ‘normal’, as can be seen by the very full calendar of the last few weeks. Though exhausting, it is also exhilarating. To be able to come together as a whole school to celebrate our patron saint , St Joseph, was wonderful. The outdoor liturgy, led beautifully by Year 1 students was very special and the tabloid activities that were facilitated by our Year 6 students were great fun for all. Even Mr Michael Nolan got in on the act with pinning a moustache on a larger than life photo of me. I think this was one of the most popular activities of all. Though the parachute, tug of war and obstacle course all came a close second, I feel. There was a great community spirit felt all throughout the school on that day.
The following day we acknowledged National Call to Action Day against Bullying and Violence. Again, with the help of Year 6 student leaders all students engaged in activities and discussions around what bullying is and is not, how to be proactive if bullying occurs and each class has a pledge which all classmates have signed to say that they will not engage in unkind behaviours such as bullying. To help children further their understanding around bullying and equip them with strategies, all classes will engage, over the next few months as sessions become available, with an online session with staff from Kids Helpline. The class teachers will inform you of when their session is so that you can engage with your children around this topic. The attached document, “Is it Bullying” is one that we find particularly useful to help children identify whether an incident is bullying or not. We hope you find it useful too, when talking about school issues at home.
This week also saw us celebrate the diversity we have in our society, culturally and neurologically, as it is both Neuro-diversity Week and Harmony Week. It has been enlightening to walk around the school and see various signs and posters created by the children that explain, acknowledge and celebrate the various neurodivergent traits people have. To see these and hear the way our children are talking or acting towards and being inclusive of others gives us hope for a more understanding and accepting society.
This is equally evident in the way children talk about and include others from cultures that are different to their own. Monday’s Harmony Day celebrations were bright, colourful and reminded us all that we are so lucky to have so many different cultures contributing to make a fascinating, tolerant and inclusive 21st century Australian culture.
Janelle Heffernan, the principal at St Carthages in Lismore, has expressed her and her community’s thanks for the donation of the filled backpacks. Thanks for making a difference and helping your children to make a difference to someone’s life and their wellbeing.
“I just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you to you, your colleagues and your school communities for the very generous donation of backpacks filled with supplies for distribution to our school families who have been directly impacted by the recent floods in Lismore. Your generosity of time in driving to Lismore to deliver was amazing.
We have had about 35 families (60 students) who have lost their homes and all of their possessions. We have so many more who had flood water in their homes but managed to save some of their possessions. Many families have lost their businesses and are unsure at this stage whether they will rebuild.
Our students have now returned to school and the smile on their faces when they saw the backpacks was priceless. It brought tears to our eyes. The older students expressed their feelings saying that they couldn't believe that people so far away would care enough about them to help them out.
Our little people were filled with excitement when they got to pick their own bag and there were so many to choose from!
We now have the majority of our students back at school and even though we are unable to occupy 10 classrooms, our school hall and our administration block we are managing in the spaces we have. We are cohabiting with builders so that is, at times, interesting. We also are not able to use any of our green spaces so we have empathy for schools in the city who operate only on hard surfaces! We have told our students that they are on an adventure and they have coped beautifully.
So again I say thank you and hope that you will be able to pass on our thanks to the other schools that were involved in this massive effort.
Our school leaders have done a little video to share.
I wish you all the best for the remainder of the term and we pray that the Easter season brings with it a message of hope for our devastated communities.”
Reflecting back on the last two weeks I feel so very grateful for what I have, what we have as a community and I am very aware that so many others are nowhere near as fortunate as us. To finish off with, I ask you to take a quiet minute to offer up this prayer for those people in the flood affected areas of our country and for the millions of people in the Ukraine experiencing immense devastation and trauma.
Most merciful and compassionate God,
Giver of Life and Love, hear our prayers and let our cries come unto you.
We weep with your people
We hear the cries of displaced children and laments of distressed parents
We feel the desperation of those searching for loved ones
We behold the silence of vanished towns and villages.
We see the devastation.
We are overwhelmed by the enormity of it all.
Our hearts are hushed, our minds are numb.
Let not our hands be stopped, our voices dumb.
God of the universe, open our hearts to feel your compassion
Galvanize in us the act of continued giving
Bond us to our sisters and brothers in need
Comfort and heal the injured, the bereaved, the lost
Strengthen the aid workers and medical personnel
Bolster the resolve of governments and those with power to help
Open through these tragedies pathways to partnerships and peace
In Your Name of mercy and healing and compassion we pray.

In the last week of this term, our Years 3 and 5 students will be participating in the national NAPLAN ONLINE Practice Test session during the NSW Test window date of 24 March – 8 April 2022. This will take the form of two tests, an Omnibus and Writing (Year 3 will participate in the omnibus only. Omnibus is a combination of Numeracy, Language Conventions and Reading).
- It is an opportunity for dioceses/schools to test their IT and support structures – i.e. a dress rehearsal for the real event.
- The window is far enough away from the real test event that any issues identified may be remediated appropriately.
- It is an opportunity for a national platform resilience test.
The practice test provides a good opportunity for students to familiarise themselves with the test platform
Excessive preparation for NAPLAN Online is not recommended. Students and parents can use the public demonstration site ACARA NAPLAN demonstration site to familiarise themselves with the types of questions and tools available in the NAPLAN Online tests. An area that we have identified in the last few years where the children need to follow the advice of the teachers is with Maths. As the test is online many students do not use the paper and pens that are available to them to do their working out which results in the children not achieving as well as what they are capable. We ask that you keep encouraging your children to work out their answers through drawing or writing on paper to give themselves the best advantage. If you have any questions about NAPLAN Online, please contact your child’s teacher.
NAPLAN testing fortnight for 2022 is the 10th – 20th May.
Positive Behaviours for Learning (PBL)
Do Your Best: Learn and let others learn!
During our ‘Do Your Best’ focus, students are learning how to do their best through learning and letting others learn. At St Joseph’s we highly value learning and we are focused on our own desire to be active learners. We do this by fostering a great love of learning and mastering new skills. PBL lessons over this fortnight will outline ways each student can make an effort to be a creative learner. Lessons will also focus on the importance of how our behaviours impact the learning of others in the classroom too.
In the classroom we are highlighting the importance of respecting others’ right to learn by working quietly, listening, staying focused, asking for assistance and challenging ourselves. We aim to complete our set work tasks with quality and attention to detail. When working collaboratively we are learning to be great listeners, to take turns and ensure we actively contribute. This means that we respect different points of view and we are inclusive of all members in our group.
If you have an opportunity, please discuss these concepts with your children.
Students are enjoying taking their class tokens to the colour house boxes and watching the numbers rise.
Special thanks to our dedicated Sports Captains for counting our tokens.
National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence
Last Friday 18 March 2022 was the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence (NDA). The theme for 2022 was Kindness Culture. By building Kindness Culture together, we can promote inclusion, respect and community belonging for all students in schools across Australia.
To recognise the importance of this day we held an assembly led by some of our Year 6 students and Ms McGinlay. During the assembly, these students highlighted the different types of bullying as well as what we can do to be upstanders and call out bullying when we see it. Students came out of uniform dressed for the theme “Uniquely You”. Across the day, students also took part in anti-bullying activities supported by our Year 6 Leadership team.
The Leadership team did an outstanding job in leading these tasks! Here is just some of the positive feedback shared by class teachers:
Isabella was outstanding! 3B loved having her run the lesson, they were engaged and settled throughout her teaching, which highlights her kind and gentle nature. She answered questions thoughtfully and respectfully throughout the lesson. I was so impressed with her and her approach, what a lovely role model for our younger grades. She is welcome back to 3B anytime!!
Daisy was very confident when presenting the Anti-Bullying Day PowerPoint to Year 1 Gold. She captured their attention and spoke very clearly, ensuring their understanding. She encouraged questions and responded thoughtfully to their ideas. Students in Year 1 Gold commented, “Maybe Daisy can be our assistant all the time!”. She did an excellent job!
5 Gold had the pleasure of welcoming Luke to run the Anti-Bullying Day activity. I was blown away by the professional and confident way he presented the content to Year 5. Luke listened to everyone's ideas and gave all students a voice to share their experiences. He should be extremely proud of stepping up at the last minute to share with a Stage 3 class. It shows great maturity and impressive leadership. Well done, Luke!
Luca was amazing!!! Not only was he clear in his delivery, but he also avoided simply reading from the slides. He was also very aware of managing his time effectively. He kept an eye on the time to make sure he had enough time for the activities, and at one point he decided to skip one slide and move on to the storyboard activity, which I thought showed excellent time management. He wandered around the room and gave his peers feedback and encouragement. He took this seriously and was professional.
Wellbeing Policy Launch
Student wellbeing is one of the priority areas in our diocese for 2022. Over the last two years, the diocesan Wellbeing and Pastoral Care Policy and Procedure documents have been reviewed and updated in line with current research, legislation and relevant guidelines.
As part of the introduction and launch of the Student Wellbeing and Pastoral Care Policy and Framework, Mrs Charnock, Mrs Pearson and our school captains Eleonor and Luca were invited to attend a special function at the St Pius x Factory Theatre on Thursday 17th March.
At this event CSO staff, Principals, Teachers and students had an opportunity to share what their schools are currently doing in support of student wellbeing. Mrs Pearson shared on behalf of St Joseph’s outlining initiatives such as our school’s Lunch Club, Gardening Club and quiet areas for outdoor play.
We look forward to sharing further Wellbeing initiatives with our community in the months to come.
With our eyes on Jesus, we journey through Lent trying to understand and accept what God has in store for us.
Jesus did this, and he is our example.
Even as he died, Jesus gave himself over to whatever God wanted of him.
Help us Lord to do your will.
Please take time to watch this beautiful and deep prayer. Let’s pray together for hope and peace for all those in the Ukraine.
Saint Joseph was a beloved father, a tender and loving father, an obedient father, an accepting father; a father who is creatively courageous, a working father, a father in the shadows.
St Joseph’s Day 19th March
The Feast of St. Joseph – the husband of Mary and the foster father of Jesus is celebrated each year. God called Joseph, a simple carpenter, to care for and protect Mary and Jesus. With great faith and trust, he accepted God’s call. St Joseph sets a good example for us all. Joseph showed us how to love, how to care for others and how to put the needs of others before himself. St Joseph is often shown in artworks with the symbol of a lily. The whiteness of the flower represents Joseph’s virtue, holiness, innocence, and obedience to God as well as Joseph’s faithfulness to Mary.
We encourage you to view Rosalie's Story from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)
Parish Sacramental Program Commitment Ceremony
Our prayers and blessings are with the children in Years 4, 5 and 6 who are commencing their preparation in the Sacramental Program for 2022. These three sacraments: Reconciliation, Confirmation and Holy Communion continue and complete the journey of initiation the children started at their Baptism. As a community we pray for each child’s journey ahead. May the experience deepen their faith and may they feel even more fully God’s limitless love.
Holy Week Liturgy
Our school will celebrate a special Holy Week Liturgy in Week 11
4B Classroom News
Students in Year 4 Blue are working hard and enjoying learning each day. We have embraced our school BYOD policy and are using our devices to support and enhance our learning. We are living our motto every day-
To Learn, Love and Live the Truth.
To try our best and have a go!!
Harmony Day and Anti Bullying Day
For Harmony Day we sang " A Song of Peace" for our community, parents and students, at assembly on Monday morning in Week 9. Year 4 did sign language when we sang the Song of Peace. We wore orange, cultural or colourful clothing.
This week we learnt about Anti-Bullying. The Year 6 students showed us a power point about bullying and the four different types of bullying -cyber, physical, emotional and verbal bullying. They asked us to sit in a round circle and we made a kindness chain. Anti-Bullying is about not making fun of people who act and look differently. It is about including everyone and radiating kindness to all. We really enjoyed our Year 6 peers helping us to learn how to be upstanders and we really feel safe knowing we can turn to them if we need help.
Our learning has fit in so nicely with our first unit, ‘Jesus’ Ministry” in our Religion lessons. We have learnt to see and understand Jesus as our Friend, our Teacher, our Saviour and our Miracle Worker. We enjoyed exploring the stories in the Bible and relating these to our lives.

In our Maths unit on Measurement and Length, we researched ways we can measure length.
Our investigation project was to create a long flying paper plane. We each made 3 and flew them to establish which one we would submit to the ultimate class challenge. We then gathered and flew them off the 1936 building balcony. What a blast!! The paper planes performed well in windy conditions and we measured their flying distance in metres and centimetres. And then it was on to our next deep investigation........
Go, Go, Go Paint we need to finish this before the bell goes. Last week we did a really fun maths investigation, we had to paint a picture of a sea creature. But apparently that just wasn't enough for our teachers! They wanted us to do it life size!!! How COOL is that!!!!The biggest one was 1.9 meters wide and 1.5 meters long!!!That would have took some work! Here are some short sentences on what students thought of this activity.
Hayden-I liked to design and building our creature.
Evan-I liked to paint and see the creature emerging beneath my brush.
Max- I liked to draw and gather information about our piece of work.
The main point was that everyone agreed it was fun. Our work was aided by the use of the fabulous ABC website BTN !! Kath and Kim even came for a visit!!!!
By Gabe, Max, Xavier and Hensley
In Year 4 we have read the extraordinary book My Place. We also have been the watching the fantastic series on ABC TV. We have enjoyed the book ever so much that we decided to make our very own My Place themed page. In that page we will include fascinating vocabulary and detailed illustrations. We are trying to make our pages as if they were actually in the book. Our class loves writing and sketching our My Place assessment activity. We have also used the Google Earth App to locate our own homes. We sketched their images and framed them for display. We are having lots of fun and our class is by far the best in the school.
We love Year 4!

This is me
CRUNCH! CRINKLE! CRUNCH! PHEW! Finally I finished my statue. In Year 4 today we are making a foil figurine! Mine looks like a person at the beach. It even has a surfboard. Before we made the statues we coloured in a piece of cardboard as a scene. Once the foil figurine was finished to perfection we hot glued it onto the cardboard scene. The trouble was that if you scrunched it up too violently you got a very skinny person and It could RRIIIPPPPPPPPPPPP!
The moment that it was finished was so dazzling. It's like a microchip in my mind!

Creative Art Webinar
On Tuesday 22nd March we attended a webinar hosted by the Canberra Art Gallery. Carolyn showed us how to draw a self-portrait and we drew Nick Cave, the rockstar, without looking at the paper. We didn’t take our hand off the paper at all whilst we were drawing!! In the self- portrait we made a hidden face in our picture. In the first quarter of the Zoom session, Carolyn turned around and behind her was a 3m tall clay model. It was supposed to look like a model of what your face looks like. (It just looks like spilt orange juice). We tried to figure out how a woman was feeling in a self-portrait. The project was fun and we had a good time.

Boot Camp and Cross Country
We have been doing Boot Camp in Year 4 every day. We have been training exceptionally hard for cross country as we want to be fit for the two kilometres and we really want to make it to regionals. In Boot Camp we have been racing, running and sprinting. We also get into groups and do a relay in the quad. The teachers like to dress up in camouflage clothes and hats (sometimes wigs) for Boot Camp and for Miss Casey's birthday we got her some cool camouflage clothes as well. After Boot Camp when are exhausted, we love getting hosed to refresh us. Everyone enjoys Boot Camp and we think it's without a doubt the very best!
By Hayden, Evan and Josh
Our virtual excursion to the State Library was very informative and really helped our class to gain an insight to life as a convict and to the history and experiences of the Aborigines.
We did an authentic, creative art work of a bottlebrush. We did multiple interactive activities. It was out of the world fun!!! We learnt that Aboriginals add on a possum skin coat every year to keep warm and they put a special symbol on it. It was fun learning about the history of Indigenous Australians.
By Benjamin, Rory and Fin.
BYOD is where you bring your own device to school. In Year 4 we love to use our computers and we can do so much fun research and activities. Our computers are easier to work with than writing on a piece of paper. On our computers we do: Study Ladder, Typing tournament, Kahoot, iMaths, Pobble 365, Nrich maths and Star maths.
In Year 4 we have are enjoying increasing our typing skills using the Typing Tournament program. This program actively promotes the use of the right fingers on the right keys and supports us towards using two hands effectively on the keyboard. If we make a mistake we get it under lined in red and that tells us that we made a spelling mistake. Your hand hurts when you write a lot on a piece of paper, but when we type on a computer our fingers don't hurt and it is a lot faster than writing. Thanks to Typing Tournament we are super fast typers!

Whether it be in the water, running long distance, kicking a goal, taking a mark or bowling a Shane Warne flipper, our students at St Joseph’s have been outstanding in the past few weeks and they have all represented our school with honour, grace and dignity!
A huge congratulations to following athletes who attended the Polding Catholic Schools NSW Swimming Championships on Tuesday: Harrison C, Luke C, Ava K, Adelaide M, Katie M, Ava K , Jacob F, Archie D and Sidney M. We are so very proud of you all for making it this far. It would have been such an experience swimming in the Olympic Pool in Sydney where past Olympians have swam!
A further congratulations to Ava K (Yr 4) who achieved a PB in her 50m freestyle event, shaving 2.15 secs off her qualifying time!
Ava K (Yr 3) and Harrison C have progressed to the next stage, swimming for NSW! Ava will not only be representing St Joseph’s but also NSW in freestyle as will Harrison Coppola for the 50m Breastroke, 50m freestyle and 50m butterfly. We wish these two athletes all the best for the next leg of their swimming journey.
Outside of the swimming pool, St Joseph’s students from Years 2-6 competed in our Annual Cross Country Carnival which was held at Empire Park on Wednesday 23rd March. Thank you so much to Amanda Vickery and Nicole Doyle for organising and co-ordinating our parent helpers. Your amazing support is part of what makes this event so special for eveyone. Thank you also to all of our parent helpers and those who came to support and cheer on the children. You all made it so much fun for our St Joseph’s students and spurred them on when needed!
Despite it being a rather warm day, we were lucky to run this event just before the showers!
As only the first three qualifying runners are to be progressed to Diocesan event, the following students have made it to the next round:

OVERDUE BOOKS. There are a few students who have overdue library books. Please assist your children to return their books each week on their borrowing day.
School Support Dog
It’s been a month between training sessions but once again Remi impressed Trainer Kelly with her focus and obedience. This week Remi practised the “stay” command and was able to sustain this for a lengthy period of time even when the trainer was out of sight. Remi also practised sitting and waiting at a door before entering the room on command. She certainly earned her dehydrated dog bone at the end of the session!
Remi has also been hard at work at school reading with students, providing emotional support and just being present in some classrooms. Here’s what the students have to say about Remi at school:
“Remi is cute and she’s soft. She makes me feel happy.” (Patrick Year 5)
“When Remi is in our class everyone is quiet and calm and then I can get my work done” (Flynn Year 3)
“Remi is a lovable dog who makes me feel safe and happy at school.” (Henry Year 5)
“Remi is really pretty and all my friends love her.” (Freya, Year 4)
“It makes everyone feel connected because we can all be her friend.” (Year 4)
“Some people find it hard to work like if they have ADHD and she helps them to do their work>” (Adelaide Year 3)
“It’s fun having a dog at school. I can see she can pay attention and I think if she can do it then I can do it.” (Amelia, year 4)
“Remi makes me feel happy.” (Ellie Year 2)
“Remi makes everyone quiet and calm and she sleeps on the carpet in our room.” (Ezrah, Year 2)
“I like Remi coming to school because she likes cuddles” (Finley, Year 2)
“Every Monday Remi listens to me read.” (Will, Year 3)
Our lunch time ‘Culture Club’ has certainly started off with a BANG! Students have loved coming to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander room at lunch time and immersing themselves in fun cultural activities. Some of these activities include, Wonnaura inspired symbol rock creating, painting and drawing, creating with natural materials, Awabakal language games, nature play, and art using animal tracks evident in Australian desert regions.
Due to the popularity of ‘Culture Club’, we are currently working through a waiting list of Year 1 and Year 2 students. ‘Culture Club’ will be offered to students in other grades in the coming weeks.
Kindergarten Biraban Art
It has been a pleasure to work with our Kindergarten students over the last 2 weeks. Students have learnt about the traditional land on which our school sits – Awabakal. Students were very interested to learn that the totem for Awabakal people is the wedge tail eagle. The wedge-tailed eagle, known as Biraban in Awabakal language has special significance for this area. Kon, their “celestial entity”, looks like an Aboriginal man, but in flight resembles an eagle.
Through a series of steps, students patiently and expertly created their own amazing Biraban artwork. To help get our creative juices flowing, it was great fun getting outside and portraying the movements of native Australian animals- including the wedge-tailed eagle.
Our ‘Biraban’ artworks look amazing. Check them out in our school foyer soon!
Aboriginal News…. For Interest Sake
Whibay-gamba is the Awabakal name for the area around Nobby’s – one of our city’s most famous landmarks. An Awabakal Dreaming story about Nobbys tells of a giant kangaroo that lives inside the island, and how he would sometimes shake his tail making the land tremble- a reference to the region’s long history of seismological activity!
18 March - National Close the Gap Day
The students and staff at St Joseph’s Merewether acknowledge ‘National Close the Gap Day’, recently held on 18th March. This day was first organised in 2006 so that organisations can come together to improve the health of First Nations people through donations and community events. Held on the third Thursday of March, Close the Gap Day is about raising awareness of the Aboriginal health crisis.
21st March Harmony Day
On Harmony Day we recognise our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures as well as all other cultures within Australia. As Australian’s we are lucky to live in such a diverse country. Harmony Day is about inclusiveness, respect, and a sense of belonging for everyone!
I am privlidged to impart knowledge to students of our amazing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures as part of our diverse country.
What a vibrant array of colours were on display on Monday 21st March as we recognised Harmony Day at St Joseph’s! Our school’s cultural diversity was celebrated through the sharing of traditional dress, and the orange and rainbow themed clothing that dazzled us all. Thank you to all the parents, students and staff for your efforts.
We began the day with a Liturgy to thank God for the gifts we enjoy because we live in a peaceful multicultural society. Thank you to the children who read so beautifully, and to the EALD children and Year 4 students and teachers who led us very respectfully through the singing and movement to ‘A Song of Peace’.
At lunchtime we enjoyed a special multicultural menu on offer through the canteen especially for Harmony Day, and each class engaged in discussion and activities around the central theme for the day – ‘everyone belongs’. We are blessed to be part of a school community where, indeed, everyone does belong!
