    Principal’s report We are committed to working closely with parents to support student learning.

    SENTRAL The SMS student absence and lateness notification system to parents has been in operation for a number of weeks now and is proving highly effective. The vast number of parents receiving text notifications are responding almost immediately which ensures a student absence or lateness is justified promptly. I thank parents for engaging with this system so readily. We now have over 550 families signed up to Sentral. If you aren’t, please contact the school. It is worth remembering also that students learn best when they have a strong attendance pattern. It is understood that lateness to school can sometimes be unavoidable, however regular lateness is unacceptable as it disrupts lessons, teaching and student learning.

    THE LEARNING CENTRE The Learning Centre is staffed fulltime providing extra support to students each and every period of the school day. The recent addition of new furniture has ensured it is a welcoming and inviting area. Parents are able to ring the school and speak with the Learning and Support Teacher (LaST) or other members of the Learning Support Team (LST) if you would like to discuss further support for your child.

    PARENT/TEACHER EVENING

    It was fantastic to see the turnout of parents at the recent Year 7 – 9 P/T

    Evening despite the weather.

    BHS P & C

    Thank you to all who were able to attend the working bee last Sunday.

    Garden beds were remulched and are looking great and refreshed. We

    were waiting for the much needed rain and certainly got it.

    STUDENT AMENITIES

    We continue to further improve the students’ amenities and this week installed more seating for students in the main playground area. The students have welcomed the additional seating which looks different, allows them to sit together, and off the ground.

    Deputy Principal’s News Firstly my apologies for the late cancellation of the Year 12 parent information evening planned for Wednesday 5th June.

    Staff illness and personal circumstances meant it was not able to go ahead. It has been rescheduled for 20th August. More

    information will go out closer to the day.

    At the end of this term, our Year 9 students will be participating in the YAM program. This program is an evidence based

    program designed to equip young people with the skills needed to address mental health issues.

    Deputy Principal’s News FEEDBACK, TEACHING AND LEARNING Mid-year is one of those times when there is a focus on assessment and reporting. This is an important and busy season. Not only have students had in-class tests, assessment tasks and, in the case of Years 7 and 9 NAPLAN tests, but parents have also had progress interviews with teachers. Mid-year reports will be sent home in the next few weeks. These are all very important. Assessment of student learning and reporting to parents and students is crucial. These processes are designed to inform our teaching and our students’ learning. Assessments, including NAPLAN, provide valuable information that can help pinpoint areas requiring support and development. Prior to the recent NAPLAN tests I told students in Years 7 and 9 that rather than dreading the prospect they should welcome it, knowing that the results would provide information designed to assist them and their teachers. Likewise with the mid-year and end of year school reports, students and parents should carefully read the teacher comments, welcoming the positives and taking on-board suggestions for further improvement. Mr Chris Neave Year 7, 9 and 11 Deputy Principal

    TRANSPORT AND CYCLING SAFETY Some students have required reminding recently that helmets must be worn if they ride to and from school. This is not only a school requirement but a legal one. Ursula Road is extremely busy at the beginning and end of the school day with pedestrians, cars and many buses. All students and parents are reminded to exercise caution. This reminder about transport safety also extends to train travel. Students should not move between carriages, must obey warning signs and level crossing gates and must stay well back from the edge of the platform while waiting for their train. Students must have a valid OPAL card in order to travel on buses and trains. Students who have lost their OPAL card must arrange for a replacement through this link – https://apps.transport.nsw.gov.au/ssts/home#/ Mr Chris Neave Deputy Principal

    Science

    Students in Years 7-10 have completed their Semester 1 examinations and are currently receiving their marks and

    feedback. It is always pleasing to see so many students trying their best to achieve their best.

    Year 8 have commenced their study of the Scientific Method and will soon receive their planning component for the Stage

    4 Student Research Project. Year 10 have started the Earth and Space topics whilst both Years 7 and 9 are beginning the

    Living World module where they are learning about a variety of biological concepts.

    Year 11 have about 12 weeks of coursework before the final examinations and students need to attend all lessons, ensure

    they understand the concepts taught and spend time at home on revision and consolidation.

    Year 12 Science students should be working hard in preparation for their Trial HSC examinations next term. It is important

    that they have established a regular study pattern of revision and past paper practice.

    Here are some photographs of our Year 10 Marine Studies class on an excursion to Lake Illawarra to complete the practical

    component of their boat licence.

    HIT1 BASKETBALL

    Our 'HIT1 Basketball’ Training runs every Thursday during Breaks 1 & 2 for our Junior Basketballers. The sessions

    commence with a focus on warming up with explicit emphasis on a core basketball skill (square, jab, pull through, etc.)

    followed by 1 on 1 games to 21, pitting the players head to head with a new challenger each week.

    After 4 weeks of training we have some spectacular success stories so far including:

    * Jack Cotterill (Yr9)

    cutting up the court & undefeated at 3 & 0 after taking some serious scalps along the way

    * Mason Broadhead (Yr8)

    sitting on top & undefeated with 3 & 0 win/loss record!

    * James Downie (Yr8)

    starting with 2 straight wins before a loss to a fellow Yr8 young gun.

    * Captain Mikey Mouawad (Yr10)

    sitting on an undefeated 2 & 0 record after juggling football commitments AND his bodacious basketball game.

    * Title favourite Judah Kami (Yr9)

    currently 3 & 1 after an epic match (and his only loss) with Captain Mikey Mouawad (Yr10)

    * Liam Barclay (Yr7)

    continually challenging himself, competing against the older boys each week and continually improving his

    game.

    Liam is already proving to be a fan favourite for his enthusiasm and effort!

    Ultimately, all of the boys are competing well and this training serves as great preparation for the Junior Boys South Coast

    Knockout Basketball commencing in Term 3.

    THE 2019 ATHLETICS CARNIVAL BY BDLC

    For the first time, at the recent school athletics carnival, students from the Black Diamond Learning Centre had the

    opportunity to participate as a team. For the students, this meant that they could compete at every activity. To be ready

    for the carnival, the students received training for each event in the lead up to the carnival. The students were very

    supportive of this initiative. Attendance increased on the day and as the following comments and photographs show the

    students thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

    “I went in a lot of events…I thought it was much better than last year.” Ashleigh (Year 10)

    “I enjoyed myself this year and it was great being part of the BDLC team.” Avalon (Year 8)

    “It was fun and we had a lot of people in house colours supporting their house.” Tyson (Year 7)

    “It was great for my first time at an Athletics Carnival.” Brock (Year 7)

    “The Athletics Carnival was sooo…fun and I came first in my 100 metre race.” Gabriel (Year 7)

    “I enjoyed the javelin and the jelly beans.” Dylan Poole (Year 8)

    Participating as a group was a concept initiated by Ms Brennan and the Black Diamond team, as a result of consultation

    with parents and students and implemented with the major assistance of Mrs Green from PD/H/PE. The students of the

    Black Diamond Learning centre are looking forward to competing again in 2020.

    Careers

    PARENTS AND STUDENTS IN YEARS 10 – 12 Please see the attached flyer for our new ‘Job Jump’ website. Feedback has been very positive indicating that it provides a superior level of service to other websites especially for Year 12 students researching university options. A significant feature is that students are able to nominate an area of interest and regularly receive information specific to that area as well as efficiently researching alternative entry, adjustment factors and scholarships for each university. Another handy feature of ‘Job Jump’ for Year 10 students/parents is the subject section advice component which is especially timely for the rapidly approaching Year 10 subject selection evening. I have also attached the calendar of tertiary careers events that I published this week (along with a detailed compendium) and is issued to all Year 12 students. Please note some changes that have taken place to early admission at UOW. More information will be released by the university in the near future.

    2019 NSW PREMIER’S READING CHALLENGE

    This year the PRC commenced on Monday 4 March and will close on Friday 30 August. It

    is open for all students in Year 7 to 9. This year students no longer need to go through the

    student portal to enter online their reading log. Students can now go directly to:

    https://online.det.nsw.edu.au/prc/home.html

    They will then need to login using their DoE username and password.

    Once logged in, click on Student Reading Records. To add a book to the student’s reading list, type in the PRC book ID

    number or title and the book details will appear automatically. Click the add button. Once the students have completed

    the challenge I can validate their reading log.

    Students in Year 7 and 8 are welcome to use the books they are reading as part of the Renaissance Reading program to

    help complete the PRC.

    The PRC has also introduced a new Student PRC website:

    https://online.det.nsw.edu.au/prc/studentExperience.html#/

    This website is designed to help students find their next PRC read and they can also enter their reading log online here

    after logging in.
