​​BRISBANE CITY COUNCIL MOVIE IN THE PARK

Thank you to the P&F for their efforts supporting the Brisbane City Council Movie in the Park event last Saturday night. The weather was not kind, but it was a fantastic catering effort given the conditions. Thanks to all who also helped with cooking and organising food yesterday. The sausage sizzle and hot chips were a different lunch option and a popular treat in this last week of school.  

CELEBRATIONS OF LEARNING

Both P-2 and 3-6 Celebrations of Learning have now taken place. It is important to set aside time to share the great work our students are doing and the learning activities they are involved in. A number of parents commented last night about the variety of learning experiences and range of opportunities provided to students. This year’s technology focus has highlighted significant change in not only the National Curriculum but also the resources available to schools and students. While electrical circuits, coding and robotics are visually quite impressive, it is important for our teachers to make sure these activities are based upon quality learning and teaching opportunities that provide relevance and active engagement in the content and concepts being taught. From the conversations I had last night, St Joseph’s is doing very well in providing a contemporary and engaging curriculum, and the majority of parents are amazed at the achievements of students throughout the year. Congratulations to the students on 2 successful evenings sharing their work, and a big thank you to our class teachers and support staff, through whom this all happens.

ENROLMENTS 2017 

I trust that all the sibling enrolment application forms have been lodged by now. At this stage demand for Prep placements in 2017 is high, with more applications than we have spaces. Our enrolment policy is to offer places to younger siblings of current students, then Catholic children from within the Parish, then Catholic children from other Parishes and finally, non-Catholic applicants. For our own planning, you can see why it is important that we have all sibling applications in prior to these interviews – we need to know how many places we can offer to new families. After we have made all offers of placement to our new families by June/July, it can be very difficult to fit in a late or forgotten sibling application in November and December.
