 Principal's Welcome

 

 

Message from the Principalhttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/About Us/Pages/Message-from-the-Principal.aspxMessage from the Principal<p>On behalf of our school community, welcome to the St. Joseph's Primary School, website.<br></p><p>The school opened on October 6, 1919 by the Sisters of the Good Samaritan and the hard working members of the St. Joseph's parish community.  We continue to honour the presence of the sisters as we strive to live out the Benedictine charism and values of:</p><ul><li>Community, <br></li><li>Partnership, <br></li><li>Hospitality, <br></li><li>Stewardship, <br></li><li>Peace, <br></li><li>Balance, <br></li><li>Compassion, <br></li><li>Humility, <br></li><li>Healing, </li><li>Listening.  <br></li></ul><div>These values are underpinned by The Word of God and Prayer.<br><br>Our staff embody these values as they seek to teach, challenge and transform the learners placed in our care.  They are committed to providing quality learning experiences as they support all students to realise their potential. Learners are known holistically and their spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional and social needs are catered for.  <br><br>As an educational leader, I believe that all learners can succeed, but not in the same way and not on the same day.  I believe in having high expectations on all learners and supporting them to meet those expectations.<br><br>We look forward to working in partnership with you, the community of St. Joseph's, as together we grow our learners.  We welcome parents as their child's first educators, to engage in the learning journey of the children.  There are plenty of opportunities for parents to engage with the school and with their child's learning.<br><br>We ask God's blessing on us all as we journey together throughout 2018. <br><br>God of the journey, be among us.  We ask this confident of your faithful kindness and in the name of Christ who journeyed before us, and the Spirit who lights the way.<br><br>In all things, glorify God<br><br><strong> </strong><br><strong>Terese Shephard​</strong><br>​Principal</div> <p class="ms-rteElement-P"><br><strong>See Also:  </strong><a href="/About%20Us/Pages/Principal%27s-Vision.aspx"><strong>Principal's Vision</strong></a></p>

1:1 Environmenthttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/1to1-Environment.aspx1:1 Environment<h2>​​​What does the 1:1 mean for St. Joseph’s Learners?</h2><p> <em>“By 2020 or sooner, it will be all about ‘just-in-time knowledge’. In a world of fast knowledge development, none of us will have the capability to know much of anything at all. The most important skill we will have will be the ability to go out to get the right knowledge for the right purpose at the right time.” <br><strong>Jim Carroll – Futurist, Trends & Innovation</strong></em></p><p style="text-align:center;"><em><strong><img src="/news-events/Latest-News/PublishingImages/Pages/1to1-Environment/iPadsCropped.jpg" alt="iPadsCropped.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:400px;height:260px;" /><br></strong></em></p><p style="text-align:justify;"> A 1:1 environment should be the goal of every learning institution, however the iPad is not coming to take over the classroom at St. Joseph’s, nor is it replacing quality teaching. Teachers must welcome the device like their predecessors welcomed the chalkboard, the calculator and the CD-ROM. The device will give our students a better opportunity to share, connect and seek out information. The iPad will not be a distraction, but another arm of the classroom. It will not always be on display. There will be times when the best lessons are done with the absence of technology.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"> Students will be taught that the iPad is an avenue for learning and discovery, but it cannot replace their ability to think critically or creatively, or to question and choose strategies to solve real life problems. These are the skills that our student will need to be effective citizens. With the iPad, they will have access to an overabundance of information and potential answers, but it will not give them the strategies to filter the information, solve problems and communicated their findings. The General Capabilities of the Australian Curriculum: Critical and Creative Thinking Capability and Information and Communication Technology Capability demand that we give our students the skills to be critical and creative thinkers and to be ICT competent.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"> Our teachers are accessing professional development on how to incorporate technology into the classroom and how to make productive use of the selected Apps. Students will also take part in ‘boot camps’ in the first few weeks of Term One, so that they become efficient in the use of the iPad. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Jim Carroll’s predictions about knowledge by 2020 impact us all as this is already the world we live in. So, we can only imagine what the knowledge growth trends will be by the time our Prep students enter the workforce! <br></p>
School Prayerhttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/School-Prayer.aspxSchool Prayer<p>​​​We have a lot to celebrate in 2019, in particular our school centenary! In preparation for our school centenary, our Year 6 leaders of 2018 started the process of creating our school prayer. As part of our centenary celebrations, we officially launch our school prayer in 2019. This process also involved our School Board, staff and students. We are very proud of the final product and it is unique to our school. <br></p><p><br></p><h2 style="text-align:center;">St Joseph's School Prayer</h2><h4 style="text-align:center;">God of compassion and understanding.<br></h4><h4 style="text-align:center;">You guide us and give us strength <br>as we strive to grow as learners and people of faith.  <br>Be with us this day as we pray.<br></h4><h4 style="text-align:center;">Jesus, compassionate brother...<br>TEACH US</h4><h4 style="text-align:center;">Mary, courageous mother...<br>LEAD US</h4><h4 style="text-align:center;">St Joseph, our patron saint ...<br>GUIDE US</h4><h4 style="text-align:center;">May the spirit of the Good Samaritan Sisters flow <br>through our school community now and forever.<br></h4><h4 style="text-align:center;">AMEN</h4><p><br></p><h4 style="text-align:center;"><img src="/news-events/Latest-News/PublishingImages/Pages/School-Prayer/SCHOOLPRAYER.jpg" alt="SCHOOLPRAYER.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:350px;height:206px;" /><br><br></h4>
