 Principal's Welcome

 

 

Message from the Principalhttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/About Us/Pages/Message-from-the-Principal.aspxMessage from the Principal<p style="text-align:justify;">Dear Parents/Caregivers, </p><p style="text-align:justify;">On behalf of our school community, welcome to the St. Joseph's Primary School, website. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">In 2019, St. Joseph's celebrates its centenary! The school was 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 style="text-align:justify;"><li>Community</li><li>Partnership</li><li>Hospitality</li><li>Stewardship</li><li>Peace</li><li>Balance</li><li>Compassion</li><li>Humility</li><li>Healing </li><li>Listening</li></ul><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;">These values are underpinned by The Word of God and Prayer.</p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;">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.</p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;">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.</p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;">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.</p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;">We ask God's blessing on us all as we journey together throughout 2019, celebrating 100 years of growing the hearts, minds and spirits of learners.</p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;">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. </p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;">In all things, glorify God<strong> </strong></p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;"><strong>Terese Shephard</strong><br>Principal</p><p dir="ltr" style="text-align:justify;margin-right:0px;"><strong>See Also:  </strong><a href="/About%20Us/Pages/Principal%27s-Vision.aspx"><strong>Principal's Vision</strong></a></p>

Term 4 is Transition Timehttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/Term-4-is-Transition-Time.aspxTerm 4 is Transition Time<p>​​Humans are creatures of habit. Even when we welcome it, change takes more energy. So perhaps it is not surprising that children often find it difficult to make transitions between activities, places and objects of attention. Trouble with transitions might come from a place of fear. “It could be fear of the unknown, or fear of what’s going to happen when they’re put in a new situation,” notes Dr. Rosenthal.<br></p><p>Our Year 6 students have already begun their transition to High School with days at their prospective schools. St. Joseph’s 2021 Prep students have had their pre-prep days and are excited to be coming to ‘big’ school next year.<br></p><p>Other classes will be transitioning in various ways throughout the term, both formally and informally. Below are some examples of how this may occur:<br></p><p><ul><li>Dance lessons – P-2, 3/4 & 5/6 groupings</li><li>Yr 1 students doing some of their learning in 2/3</li><li>Yr 5 students learning with Year 6</li><li>Yr 3 students doing some of their learning with Yr 4 It is important to note that the students are still working at their own level and on their own curriculum, but the learning is happening in a different classroom with a different teacher. Further, staffing is yet to be finalised and will be announced as soon as possible.</li></ul></p><p><br></p>
Read, Read, Readhttp://www.stjosephsgayndah.qld.edu.au/news-events/Latest-News/Pages/Read,-Read,-Read.aspxRead, Read, Read<p>​​​​​Students should be reading each night and a book could be read multiple times to a student, depending on the length of the text. A child could be listening to an adult read, reading to an adult or older sibling, or independently reading.  ​Reading at home should be easy, as we want to develop confident students who have a love for reading.</p><p>Comprehension and retell of the events from the text is important when reading and can affect your child’s reading ability. Your child may draw or write events in sequence, talk about the characters emotions or comment on why they did/did not like the book. All the discussions and dialogue you have with your child about their books will enhance their reading ability and develop their language experience around different texts.<br></p><p>The same approach should be taken with their library book. Take the opportunity to read to your child or listen to them read, and then discuss, write or draw the events, what strategies you used for ‘tricky’ words or what you thought of the characters etc. While we encourage our students to be reading every day, we don’t expect extra activities are completed at home. This is not homework, rather a simple guide to support your child as a reader.<br></p><p>Remember…reading at home should be easy and should be for enjoyment. We want to develop confident readers who have a love of reading. Just 10 minutes a day can make a HUGE difference!<br></p><p><img src="/news-events/Latest-News/PublishingImages/Pages/Read,-Read,-Read/reading.jpg" alt="reading.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /><br></p><p>​<br><br></p>
