At the Principal s Desk There must be a secret place where all lost school items go to hide. Lost socks are probably in charge, but school hats and jumpers are definitely also residents of Lost Item City. It s a strange phenomenon that sees literally hundreds of school items disappear throughout the year. Schools are like the Bermuda Triangle for stationery and clothes. Items are taken inside the school walls and then never seen again. It s a mystery to all of us. Parents often discuss how they can avoid losing 50 hats AGAIN this year. Because not only is it annoying and time consuming, it is also costly. Lost items cost money. 1. Label everything 2. Take the minimum 3. Check bag regularly 4. Keep spares 5. If you take it off put it in your bag. 2

3 Southern Region Athletics Carnival Last Friday 40 students travelled to Canowindra to participate in the Southern Region Athletics Carnival. The Southern Region Athletics Carnival is held between a range of different large and small Catholic schools in our area. The weather was far from ideal but a great day was had by all competitors. A big congratulations to Stirling Farr the 11yr Age Champion and Jacky Chen the senior boy Runner-up. St Joseph s won the Most Improved School, Trophy. Well done, great team work. A large number of students from St Joseph s will compete at the Diocesan Carnival which will be held in Dubbo on the 18 th August. More details will be sent home as we receive them. Year One News What a beautiful time the Year One children had last week celebrating Grandparents and Grandfriends! It was lovely to hear so many stories from the children about conversations they've had with their Grandparents. One big difference in the schooling experience for our Grandparents is the change in technology. We have found it very interesting to hear about how our Grandparents learnt to read, write, sing and a wide range of skills. Our students have been very lucky lately and have been using the ipads to write stories, create art work, complete Maths and comprehension activities and to enhance their skills as Geographers! The children have also been getting ready for Book Week and have been immersing themselves with reading books! We encourage children to read and be read to every night. 3

4 Year Three News Year Three have been learning about everything to do with Brazil as we count down to the Olympic Games. Mrs Wills and Year 3 have made a medal Tally chart so they are ready to count the medals when our Australian athletes win. Year Five News Stage Three Sport Five weeks of specialised athletics training from an expert coach is well underway. We have been working hard on our sprinting starts and fine tuning our techniques. On Wednesday we focused on our discus throwing techniques and used small hoops for safety. It has been freezing cold but we are taking every opportunity to get out and about! We are looking forward to next Wednesday! 4

5 Year Six News Year Six and some people in Year Five are going to be running a support group call Peer Support. The children will be have sessions with the leaders every Thursday morning after Spelling Mastery. The leaders will be talking about resilience and how you just have to keep trying. The students will also be able to talk to their leaders about any problem that they are facing. We are all looking forward to Peer Support and we hope everyone enjoys it. :) Hannah Richardson Peer Support Our whole school will be starting Peer Support sessions this week. Students will be using a new module; Taking Opportunities which focuses on resilience. The experiences presented in the module help children develop skills to identify their strengths, celebrate their achievements and seek assistance when faced with challenges. In this session each group will establish their group agreements so they can work well together. Children will share some of their favourite things and learn about the other members of their group. You might like to discuss with your child what they can do this week to help them take an active role in Peer Support 5
