- SHOALHAVEN COMMUNITY OF CATHOLIC SCHOOLS
- COMMUNITY NOTICES
At St John’s we aim to assist all students to reach their potential and whilst our goal is to provide quality Catholic education there is a clear focus on excellence in learning and peaceful just relationships. These are our two wells. To ensure success in all these areas all members of the school community must play a role. This is where good leadership is essential. At St John’s our goal is to develop leadership skills in all our students. This is where the diversity of our community members provides a richness in their leadership skills.
Some of our young people are transformational leaders whose passion is clearly evident. They are so overtly passionate they easily encourage others to step up and join them. We see them here at St John’s promoting their passion at assemblies and year group meetings and leading community action groups.
Equally important however are our other leaders. Those who show leadership through service and our transactional leaders who can competently organise almost any event. These students are evident in social justice groups such as PAX and Vinnies and the environmental group JAG. They also become involved in the many opportunities to support others in initiatives such as the water walk and letter writing. They visit nursing homes and join service community groups such as RFS.
Many students find leadership comes so naturally however for most students it is one of those challenges that, when they take it on, they surprise themselves with how much they grow. This is where the key to good leadership is embedded. Leadership must be distributive. Good leaders take on the challenge and hear the voice of others. They take time to hear that voice and then act in such a way that they are building the capacity of other leaders. Capacity building is central to good leadership. Good leaders invite others to join them and support them in their role. Our students that take on the roles in SRC are exemplars in this.
With this in mind I would like to acknowledge the Year 12 students and the many young people who have taken on leadership roles and opportunities throughout the last 12 months. The extra challenge it has presented has resulted in some surprising and very positive outcomes. Young people never cease to surprise us with their ingenuity.
Over the next couple of weeks we will be welcoming new leaders as we undertake the selection process for the new School Representative Council. I encourage all students to nominate for these roles and take on the challenge that they offer.
FAREWELL TO STAFF
We will have a couple of very valued staff members leaving us at the end of Term 3.
Sue Rankin has worked in many roles in administration over her 16 years at St John’s. Sue has shared her outstanding skills in these roles to ensure our staff and students are well supported. In most recent times one of her key roles has been in attendance and supporting the pastoral care roles in the school. Her care for our young people has been very evident in the work that she has undertaken. We are grateful for her outstanding service to our community.
Matt Mathison has been the Technology Officer for St John’s for many years and during this time has resourced the school to ensure that we could enhance the learning of all our young people with contemporary and effective technology. Matt has also been a keen learner and has used his skills to support effective communication not the least of which has been streaming events such as the school assemblies. Matt has led the SJE News Team, a truly quality production. Matt has also been undertaking university studies. We wish Matt every success in his new role.
Leland Foster's work as an Aboriginal Education Assistant at St John’s has always focussed on ensuring that all students were well supported to maximize their learning outcomes. He has provided exceptional support to so many students in this area and used his cultural knowledge to support in skills such as didgeridoo. Leland has undertaken study whilst working and now has a position in his field of expertise. We wish Leland the best in his new position.
Mrs Sandra Hogan
A reminder that Term 4 marks the change to summer uniform. We receive many comments on the outstanding manner in which the students from St John’s present in the Shoalhaven community. This is the result of the school working with the students to understand the importance of personal presentation and the family support for excellence in this area. It is essential that every student takes pride in the school uniform and wears it according to the guidelines indicated in the School Diary. All students should be in their correct summer uniform from the first day of Term 4.
A reminder that:
- Girls may wear their long pants as a part of the summer uniform
- The girls’ skirts must reach the knee. Please check your skirt lengths during the holidays to ensure that they are at knee length.
- Girls have the option of socks or tights. From the beginning of Term 4 all students should be wearing the official school socks purchased from Lowes.
- Boys wear a short sleeved shirt which is to be untucked. They have the option of pants or school shorts and the school socks.
- School shoes are appropriate black leather lace-up polishable sturdy shoes.
- Hairstyles must be moderate and of a suitable length and natural colour as prescribed in the diary. No facial hair. Hair should be tied back once at collar length/below the earlobes. The new shaved on the side style is not allowed at St John's.
- Only appropriate jewellery as prescribed in the school diary.
- Excessive make up: the current fashion of heavily shaping and colouring eyebrows is not to be worn at school.
- Correctly sized SJE sports shorts
If purchasing uniform items from Lowes, please mention the school name. We thank parents for their ongoing support in ensuring these guidelines are continually being met.
Students may wear either FULL winter or summer uniform during the last two weeks of Term 3. The weather is changeable so each student can dress to accommodate their level of comfort. Students must make the decision one way or the other though, as any variation on a full uniform will incur a playground withdrawal. Year 12 students may wish to take the opportunity to have their winter uniform laundered in time for the graduation ceremony.
Have a wonderful week!

As Term 3 begins to draw to a close I would like to offer a timely reminder that the new SJE socks are compulsory from the start of Term 4. To avoid the rush now would be a good time to purchase your socks from Lowes so as to ensure all students present in their correct full summer uniform after the holidays.
Diary use across the Year 9 cohort needs to be a focus for all students. Using the school diary consistently will assist with organisation and achieving the SMART goals set each term. If any student is having difficulty achieving their SMART goals please speak to your PALS teacher.
The Look Out Wellbeing Program that has been running in Year 9 PDHPE classes this term has seen some outstanding work developed by the students.
Students have worked hard to create resources for a variety of age groups to support those who may be experiencing some kind of mental health challenge. I know Mrs Frew and the PE staff have been blown away by the depth of knowledge and level of commitment by the Year 9 cohort to such an important program. As their Year Coordinator I am beyond proud at what I have seen produced by the students.
I have included some of the resources created, take a look, they are awesome. Congratulations Year 9!!
It is also great to see Year 9 students developing their skills in their elective practical lessons.
The aromas coming from the Food Tech classroom were mouth watering and the beats blasting from the music room always gets the feet dancing. Keep up the good work Year 9 it’s great to see you all developing those skills for life.

Mrs Lynette Kelly
Year 9 Coordinator
It's been a busy few weeks for Year 10 and it has been pleasing to see all the engagement and creativity coming from the classes I have visited. A snapshot of the last few weeks for Year 10, but first;
Last Friday the Year 10 cohort participated in a presentation by Paul Dillion focusing primarily on alcohol and attempts to debunk some of the myths in this area, particularly around how to look after friends. In an effort to ensure that young people are able to make healthier choices, it provided accurate, up-to-date information, including the latest prevalence rates of alcohol and other drug use by secondary school students, the risks associated with drinking spirits, as well as the dangers associated with the disinhibiting effect of alcohol. Basic life skills were also discussed around alcohol-related emergencies, particularly in regards to looking after themselves and their friends.
The Year 10 Bushcraft classes have been exploring Public Land management strategies, in particular focussing on introduced plants (weeds) and feral animals. Students have been discussing how it arrived in Australia, why it was introduced, features of this species that make it successful in the Australian environment, where it can be found, and its habitat/range. As part of the management strategy of introduced plants students have been removing lantana from the State Forest. They have also been removing litter and other household rubbish from the State Forest. Great to see students taking care of an environment that we get a lot of use and enjoyment from.
After “hanging around” in the gym and practicing their rock climbing skills in a closed environment, it was great to see students put their skills to the test at Nowra showgrounds. Students were abseiling down steep cliffs, climbing up sheer cliff faces all while belaying for each other and completing safety checks. A lovely day spent enjoying the outdoor environment. Special thanks to Mr Jak, Mr Higgins and Mr Watson who gave up their days to ensure that our Year 10’s got to step outside of their comfort zones, challenge themselves and experience the splendour of nature.
Hopefully that put a on smile on your face similar to the ones I saw last week when I visited Miss Baker’s music class.
The Year 10’s have been studying Western Art Music with a specific focus on the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods. Students have performed Canon in D and will soon learn 'In the Hall of the Mountain King'. Students have also been composing their own art piece of music using ternary form and implementing the stylistic techniques appropriate to the style. A very euphonious class!
After completing their initial drawings and specifications and brushing up on the use of hand tools, students have been busy making their side tables. The sounds of saws, hammers, chisels and sanding have created a pleasant working environment for all those involved. So far all fingers have been accounted for!
Why did the math book look so sad? Because it had so many problems. Seriously though, I was talking with Mr Smith about a joke for Trigonometry but it was just too graphic!
Students across the year group have just finished their trigonometry unit. It was great to see students applying their new found knowledge to practical and real world situations. I look forward to seeing what some of the classes can achieve when they start on volume. First Year 10 student to come see me with the formulae wins a prize:
The thespian talents of Year 10 have been well and truly on display in English with students thoroughly engaging in Shakespeare’s King Lear. They have been reading, acting, workshopping, and analysing key scenes, while exploring the themes of family, power, justice, gender, loyalty and relating these to the experience of modern day teenagers. Personally, I can’t wait to hear some of the podcasts the students produce for their assessment. I could keep writing more but I can’t decide on what pencil to use...2B or not 2B?
The Visual Art class were showing off their artist flair making wearable art. Next stop the runways of Paris Fashion week! Ton art est cool!
This week our Year 10 Food Technology students baked Lemon Meringue Pie and Berry Meringue Cupcakes.
Year 10 House Activity Challenge
Over the past few weeks, Thursday lunchtimes have been action packed for this year group. I have been running house activity challenges where students have been representing their PALS group and competing for House Points. While some students have been seeing red (Go Chisholm!) with the umpiring decisions it has been great to see the engagement, enjoyment and positive interaction amongst the year group.
Work Experience Week 8 Term 4
A reminder that Year 10 are on work experience during Week 8 of Term 4 (Monday 30 November- Friday 4 December). It is important that students start to identify particular areas of interest and potential local businesses that may host them for work experience. More information can be found on the Year 10 Careers page.
Transition Week: Year 10 into 11
To assist students with the increased demands of their studies in Year 11 and 12 we are running a transition week in Week 9 of Term 4. Students will look at study tips such as effective revising techniques, organisational skills, creating habits that lead to success, proactive wellbeing tips and future focussed planning. Stay tuned for more details.
I hope you have had a laugh or at least a smile at the cringe worthy jokes. It will release some positive endorphins as we reach the end of term!

YEAR 10 WORK EXPERIENCE
All Year 10 students will be undertaking work experience in Term 4 Week 8 (30 November - 4 December).
It is the students responsibility to organise their own work experience placement, the skills they learn from this activity are very similar to looking for real employment. In the current climate it is important to start early as many businesses are doing it tough and can not take work experience students this year. PALS teachers and Mrs Hill are available to assist with the process.

YOUTH MINISTRY ART COMPETITION WINNERS
Students are learning the very important skill of bargaining, a favourite Indonesian past time ‘Saya rugi!’ ‘I’ll be broke!’
We have explored the world of the Pasar or market and looked at how shopping can look very different for Indonesian families.
We then moved on to investigating the rich and diverse world of traditional ceremonial clothing throughout the Indonesian archipelago.
Students completed presentations about a specific Suku Bangsa or ethnic group. They then made their own representation of an element of traditional clothing which they presented to the class.
Mrs Lucy Manley
YEAR 10 FRENCH
Year 10 French have had a wonderful Term 3. They are an exceptional group of students who always put 100% into their learning progress. So far this term they have undertaken 4 major learning experiences.
Learning Experience 1 - VERBS!
Student completed a verb booklet which they began at the beginning of Year 9. This booklet includes most tenses learnt in French. This has been very advantageous for their progress in English grammar as well as allowing them to apply the mechanics of French to most situations.
Learning Experience 2 - LISTENING
Students listened to both dialogues and monologues in French and respond to questions in English. This was a French Beginners HSC style exam which was challenging. Nevertheless, students excelled in this task.
Learning Experience 3 - WRITING
Students undertook a task where they wrote about what they used to do when they were ‘young’ (!). The needed to use the imperfect tense which they have learnt this term (l’imparfait en français!). Again, exceptional descriptions were produced.
Learning Experience 4 - READING AND RESPONDING
Students read three authentic French articles from different sources and responded to questions in French. They also changed an article from first person to third person IN FRENCH. This is not an easy task and again students excelled.
Bravo la seconde!
Next week, students will undertake another learning experience:
Learning Experience 5 - SPEAKING
Students will have a 2-minute conversation with Mme S which will involve responding to 5 questions.
A WONDERFUL MEMORY
FRENCH FOOD DAY 2019
Ms Carmel Smallwood
This week, I watched the inspirational story of Leila Smith, Deputy CEO of the Aurora Education Foundation.
Of particular note was her description of how the foundation strives to guide, inspire and inform students. This resonated strongly as goals that the team in Gooroon also strive for; to guide and support students so that they can achieve their best, to inspire students to be ambitious and to play a role in informing our whole community of the richness of Aboriginal culture and it’s relevance to our daily lives.
As a measure of our progress toward those goals, next week we will be celebrating the graduation of ten Year 12 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. All of these students have shown great resilience and strength of character in this particularly difficult year. All ten students have chosen further education and/or career pathways including early acceptance into, or applications for, university courses for 2021, apprenticeships or traineeships. We are all very proud of their achievements. The ceremony will be live streamed to parents/family on Wednesday 16 September. (Link to be emailed.)
Earlier this term we bid farewell to Leland Foster. Leland has been working with Gooroon as Aboriginal Education Assistant for the last 2 years and has made a wonderful contribution to the unit. Students and staff were sad to see him go but we all wish Leland well in his new position. Having worked with him in Gooroon, I know that he will be very successful.
The Homework Centre continues each Wednesday, with measures in place to meet COVID safe guidelines. This will continue each term from Week 2 - 9 from 3.00 to 4.30 pm in Gooroon. This is a great opportunity for students to complete assignments or homework with the assistance of teachers who voluntarily attend.
Due to the current COVID directives, our didgeridoo program has had to be suspended. As an alternative, students have begun to work on the creation of small message sticks. Appropriate wood has been gathered and is now being prepared for painting. Our dance groups have been able to continue with Covid safe measures in place.
This year, our NAIDOC assembly will be live streamed in Term 4 on Friday 6 November. NAIDOC Week officially runs from Sunday 8 to Sunday 15 November. The theme this year is ‘Always Was, Always WIll Be’, recognising that First Nations people have occupied and cared for this land for at least 65,000 years. https://www.naidoc.org.au/ Keep an eye out for the link, which will be published nearer to the date. Preparations are well underway for what will be a different, but engaging, presentation.
On behalf of all the team in Gooroon,
Mr David Muller
Hello everyone, my name is Mrs Natalie Hayes and I will be supporting Defence students and their families as the Defence School Mentor during the leave of Mrs Gaudie in Terms Three and Four.
As a Defence spouse, I am well aware of the many challenges associated with the Defence way of life, particularly how quickly plans can change.
Therefore, one of my main priorities is to provide support to Defence families as they navigate these challenges.
So I can provide appropriate support, I would encourage Defence families to let me know of any upcoming deployments, periods of parental absence or changes in circumstances that may affect a student’s overall wellbeing.
If you would like to contact me, please feel free to email me email@example.com or phone (02) 4423 1666.
Throughout this week I have been meeting with each year level to introduce myself and get to know the students. Everyone has been incredibly welcoming and I look forward to supporting and getting to know each of you.
Mrs Natalie Hayes
Defence School Mentor
TERM 4 REPRESENTATIVE SPORT EVENTS - CANCELLED
Please be advised that the following events set down for early term 4 have been CANCELLED.
Wednesday 14 October (Week 1, Term 4): Junior Yr 7-9 Boys Cricket
Friday 16 October (Week 1, Term 4) - Boys 14 years & Girls Yr 7-9 AFL
Monday 19 October (Week 2, Term 4) - Boys & Girls Junior (Yr 7-9) and Boys & Girls Snr (Yr 10-11) Basketball
Given the existing conditions and current CEDoW leadership advice, the lack of preparation time for schools, the number of students and officials involved, the fact that students and staff will be there all day (rather than play and leave) and engaging in competition against multiple schools, across multiple locations make all these events not viable.
Thank you to the students who were willing to be involved. Fingers crossed we can continue our gala days and rep sport events in 2021!
Close off for orders is 8.30am daily, a 25c transaction fee applies.
We have also now received approval for volunteers to assist in the canteen. Volunteers have been identified as essential workers. Vicki has prepared a roster for the remainder of this term however we have several days where assistance is required. If you are able to assist in our canteen, please contact Vicki on 4423 1666 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Come alone or it would be lovely to bring a friend along to assist.
