Week 2 Term 1 2022
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We commit ourselves to actively working alongside Aboriginal people for reconciliation and justice.
Welcome back to our new school year. I hope you all enjoyed a very relaxing and enjoyable time with family and friends over our Christmas break. We begin this new year again with some uncertainties, however, we are hopeful that, over the next few weeks, we will see some easing of restrictions bringing some more stability and consistency in teaching and learning and a return of visitors to our school.This year again promises to be a year full of unknown opportunities for us all to support each other in our partnership of educating, guiding and modelling Christian values to our children.
The term has started with a real sense of purpose and a great spirit of co-operation and enthusiasm for learning. Teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure that classrooms are ready for learning and I am sure that you will be happy with your child‘s new learning environment. We especially welcome our 2022 Kindergarten students and the many families who are beginning their educational journey at St Carthage’s. We hope your time here is happy and rewarding. We know that the start of the year has been difficult with families, particularly our new families, who have been unable to come in and see your child/children's learning environment but we thank you for trusting your children to our care.
I would like to thank you for supporting us in undertaking our Maths Assessment Interviews last week. We have gained valuable information and insight to assist the students with their mathematical conceptual understanding. It was also a great opportunity for teachers to touch base with students before formal classes begin.
Congratulations to our students for the way you have started on this new stage of your learning journey and thanks to parents for having them so well prepared for school. Thank you to the staff who have spent holiday time at school setting up rooms, developing programs and organising resources and school events for Term One. It is this dedication and commitment which allows us to start the year so smoothly. Well done all!
To you, the parents and families, I eagerly look forward to meeting you over throughout the term few weeks when we can again welcome you on our school grounds. We are here to work in partnership with you and I would appreciate any input or suggestions which you may have to ensure that our school runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
We welcome Mrs Sally Innes, Miss Annabel Overell, Mrs Mia van der Walt, Mr David Morrissey and Mrs Bethany McDermott (teaching staff) and Mrs Penny Collins and Mrs Dale Strong (Teacher Assistants) to our staff this year. Sally joins us from Our Lady Help of Christians, South Lismore and she has taken leave from her permanent job to experience life at St Carthage's. Annabel taught at Toowoomba Grammar School last year and previously at St Joseph's Wee Waa and St Joseph's Tenterfield. Mia comes to us from St Joseph's Gilgandra and prior to that Mia worked overseas. Both Bethany and David have worked at St Mary's Casino and both have worked here as well. Penny has worked as a TA at Our Lady Help of Christians and Dale has worked in Department schools over the past couple of years. I know you join with me in welcoming these new staff members to St Carthage's and we hope their time with us will be happy and successful.
As we move through our second week of school, I hope that your children are settled and happy in their new classes. Certainly the talk has been very positive, with teachers commenting about how eager and enthusiastic the students have been. As we begin this new year, it is important to remember that parents and teachers are partners in helping each child achieve a successful transition into adulthood. This combined support is essential if the transition is to be a positive developmental experience for your child. A good relationship with your child‘s teacher will make it easier for you to stay informed about your child‘s progress across all areas of schooling and to work together if difficulties or problems arise throughout the year. On occasions, you might find that teachers offer advice or constructive criticism about your child that you may not agree with. However, it is important to keep an open mind to the teacher‘s comments (and they to yours). Unfortunately none of us are perfect, so if a problem arises, it is important to consider both sides of the story. The outcome should be one that helps your child succeed at school. There needs to be a sensitivity which respects the parents who have a special knowledge of their children, and the teacher as a trained professional.
School staff at St Carthage's are dedicated and caring people and they want to be not just good educators, but educators who their students will remember because they shared their knowledge and love of learning with them. Jonathan Sarks, Rabbi and author of ―The Politics of Hope, said about teachers:
“Educators open our eyes to the world. They give us curiosity and confidence.
They teach us to ask questions. They connect us to our past and future.
They are the guardians of our social heritage.
Life without a teacher is surely not a life.”
May 2021 be a great year for you and your children and please remember, if you have any questions, queries or concerns regarding your children throughout the year, please contact your child‘s teacher, our Assistant Principals or myself so that we can work together on a joint solution.
The next couple of weeks Rapid Antigen Test were sent home today. These were in a manilla envelope marked with your child/children's name.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we again navigate the ever-changing landscape that we call Covid-19.
It was great to welcome our Kindergarten students and their families to school on Tuesday and then to see them happily arrive at school for the rest of the week. I think that there will be some very tired little people tonight and I also think their teachers and support staff will also sleep well!
Congratulations on a great start!

Parent Information Meetings
We are unfortunately unable to have parents and carers onsite for our Parent Information Meetings at the moment. The exception is our Kindergarten parents who missed their information meeting at the end of last year. They will be able to meet at school in the hall under Covid safe procedures.
Parent-Teacher Information Meetings are a vital communication link between home and school. I encourage every family to attempt to join the Zoom meetings. This sends a powerful message to your children about the value you place on your child’s learning this year. Teachers go to a lot of trouble preparing these nights and I thank them for giving up their family time to assist your children’s education.
Teachers will send parents the Zoom link.
See table for the meeting schedule;
5.30pm Monday, 14th February - Year 6
5.30pm Tuesday, 15th February - Years 3 and 4
5.30pm Wednesday 16th February - Years 1 and 2
5.30pm Thursday 17th February - Year 5 (Zoom) and Kindergarten in the school hall.
Kindergarten Parent Information Meeting
We invite all Kindergarten parents to an information meeting next Thursday evening at 5.30pm. Here teachers will talk about what the students will be learning, school expectations, what your child needs etc. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
We ask that you follow our Covid safe protocols by scanning the QR code on entry, physical distancing, sanitising on arrival etc.
We look forward to you joining us.
Year Six Induction
Due to the Covid restrictions on numbers in the Cathedral we are unable to have an Opening School Mass. We have spoken to our Year Six student leaders and they have decided that they would like to receive their badges as soon as possible rather than wait for restrictions to ease in the hope that we can have families join us.
We will therefore have a prayer service next Friday 18th February at 9.30am with our Year Six students. We will present our leaders with their badges. We will zoom this prayer for families to view.
Welcome Barbeque and Disco
We are hoping to have this event later in the term.
Social Media Reminder
It is quite common for parents to establish social media groups or pages to share information or connect with other parents in your child’s class and school community. Please be reminded that it is not permitted to establish a social media presence using the school's name or logo without written permission from the Principal. Any permitted social media pages/groups/accounts must adhere to the schools and the Catholic Schools Office Diocesan Social Media Policies.
Changes to Afternoon Pick Up
If there is a change in your child’s travel arrangements, please let us know by note or phone call. We ask that phone calls to the Office to advise children of an unexpected change to pick-up arrangements be made prior to 2:45pm. This provides Office Staff with the best chance of ensuring that your child receives the message. As you might imagine, a flurry of last minute phone calls at this busy time of the school day is not ideal.
If a child is unsure of their home time arrangements on a particular day, and we have received no notification, the child will be sent home on their bus as usual.
Late Arrival and Early Departure
- Students arriving after the school bell has rung, must be brought to the Office by their parent/carer upon arrival.
- Parents/carers collecting students early must come to the School Office. Staff will call students to the Office for collection.
Please Note: We are unable to allow children to go with another parent unless we have permission (preferably written). If unknown to Office Staff, parents/carers calling to collect children will be asked for photographic I.D. This is not meant to offend and is only in the interest of your child/ren’s safety.
Notification of Student Absences
Parents of students marked as Absent (unexplained) will receive an SMS notification asking you to advise the reason for your child’s absence by return SMS. As SMS messages are now considered legitimate forms of communication, a follow-up phone call or note is not required. However, if you are unable to respond to the SMS then the school does require some form of communication via a phone call or email to explain absences.You can also enter your child's absence prior to getting the SMS notification using the Compass App.
It is both a legal requirement and a safety issue that all visitors report to the Office and sign in and out of the school. This is necessary in the unlikely event of a fire, evacuation, lockdown etc. but more importantly for the safety of the students in our care. If you are staying at the school, you will also be issued with a visitor’s badge.
Parking on School Premises
The School Visitor/Accessible parking area (in the front of the Administration building) is for short term parking between the hours of 9:15am – 2:45pm. You are welcome to use this carpark during these times if you have an appointment at the school. It is not a pick up or drop off area for parents’ use before or after school (unless you are entitled to Accessible Parking). The Staff Carpark (behind the Administration building) is for Staff only and not for visitor use at any time.
Parish Mass Times
The times for weekday Masses in the Cathedral are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 8:00am, and Friday at 12:05pm.
Weekend Mass times are; Saturday Vigil – 5:30pm
Sunday Morning – 9:00am
Sunday Morning – 11.00am
Welcome to the 2022 School Year
Welcome to the 2022 school year to all our returning and new families. I hope you all stayed well and had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday break. We have started the school year well and we look forward to continuing to have a great year full of learning and fun here at St Carthage’s.
Our teachers had a wonderful two days sitting with students to conduct the Mathematics Assessment Interviews (MAIs) last week. We thank all our parents for working with us to have students attend their individual appointments. The information gathered, as a result of the interview, is important in helping us to assess where a child's understanding is at in order for teachers to plan teaching that is targeted to the needs of their learners to enable them to thrive mathematically.
On Tuesday we welcomed our new Kindergarten students. From all accounts they have had a great start to "big school" even though there were a few tried faces this afternoon. Thank you to our Kindergarten parents for organising a time for their Best Start and Mathematics Assessment Interviews. The Best Start Kindergarten Assessment is a state-wide assessment that helps show teachers the literacy skills of each student at the beginning of Kindergarten. As a Diocese, our Catholic schools then complete a MAI with each Kindergarten student so that we have an understanding of their numeracy skills. Both of these assessments help teachers to plan lessons to best support the learning needs of every child in their classrooms.
The data collected through the Best Start and MAI will be shared with parents during Term One. If you have any questions regarding this please speak with your child’s teacher.
At St Carthage’s the wearing of the correct school uniform is compulsory. A note to the school is required if your child is not in the correct uniform. Permission must be sought for a child to be excused for longer periods (e.g. medical reasons).
Please label each item of clothing clearly as we end up with numerous uniform items (particularly hats and jumpers) in Lost Property and they can not be returned to the rightful owner as they have no name on it.
School hats are a compulsory part of the uniform and need to be worn at all times when the students are outdoors (including Bus Bays). If your child/ren comes to school without their hat they will be asked to sit in the shade.

PE & Sport Days
Pick-Up and Drop Off Arrangements
Before and After School
The following areas have been designated as safe areas for the children to be dropped off before school and to be picked up after school:
- School grounds:
Parents may collect children from the school grounds. Children will wait on the Library steps for collection.
This should lessen the confusion and temptation that some children have to play on the playground equipment when the bell rings. Parents, this equipment is out of bounds until the Cathedral Line and the Bus Bay Lines have moved off. However, no child should be on the equipment at any time if their parent is not supervising them.
- Cathedral grounds (preferred option):
Children being picked up from the Cathedral of an afternoon, line up with their hat on, near the Bus Bay 17-20 line. Teachers will escort them, via the underpass, to the Cathedral. All children are asked to walk in an orderly way.
A “Drive-Through” operates as outlined below.
DO NOT PARK:
Parents are asked to avoid blocking bus zones or private driveways and are not to park in the Police Youth Club Car Park, the Service Station or the Staff Car Park including the driveway access (located off Dawson Street).
Cathedral Pick-up and Drive-Through Guidelines
- All children must sit on the grassed area and wait for parents to collect them. (No children are to run off to meet their parents).
- No parking in the middle grassed area of the Cathedral grounds.
- ONE WAY TRAFFIC only.
- The Drive-Through-Lane is only for parents of children who do not need assistance getting into cars. (speedy operation) Parents, please do not leave your car. Teachers will direct your child/ren to your car when it is time and safe to do so.
- NO CHILD is to enter a car from the right hand side of the vehicle when using the drive-through.
- If your child needs assistance, parents must park in the “Pick-up Parking” area on the far side of grounds and walk over to pick up your child.
- All pedestrian access via Cathedral steps and paths. Please do not cross in front of queuing “drive-through” traffic.
- Vehicles exit “Pick-up Parking” area on inside lane of Drive-Through queue (see diagram below).
- Parents in Drive-Through-Lane have RIGHT OF WAY.
- Please do not block driveway access to the Presbytery, Parish Office or Priest’s residences.
- Parents who need to park and collect children may wish to stagger their pick up time until after the initial rush.
- At 3:40pm any children still waiting to be picked up will walk back to school with the supervising teachers.
- In the event of funerals at the Cathedral, wet weather or storms, children are to be collected from the Library steps. A message will be placed on ClassDojo.
We would appreciate it if all parents could read and share guidelines with other people who might pick up your child and support us in this endeavour in keeping your child safe.
Bus Safety - Flashing Lights Campaign
- Sticking to the speed limit and following the road rules in school zones
- Slowing down to 40km/h when bus lights are flashing
- Looking out for children crossing the road near bus stops, in school zones or along bus routes
- Giving way to buses when they merge back into traffic.
- Never drop off or meet children on the opposite side of the road to the bus stop or call them across the road. Always drop them off or meet them on the same side of the road as the bus stop.
- Encouraging their children to be distraction-free around buses - put down their phone and take off their headphones.

Encouraging students to move from their Heads to their Hearts to their Hands...
Welcome back everyone! As some of you may know I was on leave for much of last year after a cancer diagnosis. Thank you so very, very much for the many prayers and thoughts (and lovely cards from children) sent my way – they were so very much appreciated and I believe contributed to my recovery. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
It’s been a busy first week, so much happening, but I'd like to share just three items with you…!!
First - “SEE, JUDGE, ACT”
Over the past few years we have brought to our school culture the phrase “Head, Heart and Hands” with students and we teach that it is not enough to only learn about the Gospel teachings of Jesus, we need to then take them into our HEARTS and then DO SOMETHING POSITIVE!
We would now also like to start using in our school the phrase – SEE, JUDGE, ACT. We can use this phrase when we SEE something which is not right or just.
We don’t JUDGE in a negative way – we judge what is happening with the eyes of our faith – we ask ourselves - what would Jesus say or do?
Then - we can try to ACT TO DO SOMETHING TO MAKE THE SITUATION BETTER.
We will over the next few years embed this phrase into our everyday language -If you can use this phrase at home that would be fantastic!
Second - I'd like to share a little example of how we are always trying to make learning in Religious Education an engaging experience for the students. (Just like adults, if they are not engaged by the process of teaching we have lost them!)
A highlight today was mixing with Year 5 students and teachers as they explored their Religious Education Unit– Seasons of the Church.
We believe students will learn best when they are engaged - so we make Religion fun and engaging and start our learning at what the student knows! (Not what we think they know or should know). As you can see from the photos the students were very much engaged!
Thank you so much to…the eager and knowledgeable Year 5 students, the very professional Year 5 teachers and the great help we receive from Catholic Schools Office through our RE Education Officers Helen Hunter and Catherine McAleer. Both Helen and Catherine were very impressed with the knowledge the children displayed!
Finally, please help with our FOOD FREEZER FOR NEEDY FAMILIES
Today was the Feast Day of Our Lady of Lourdes and February 11 was proclaimed World Day of the Sick by Pope John Paul II - in times of trouble and concern, we can pray to Our Lady of Lourdes for help and support.
At St Carthage’s we try to be practical helping those in need by keeping a FOOD FREEZER FOR NEEDY FAMILIES - These meals are provided to families who may need a meal to make things a little easier.
If you can contribute we would be grateful. (Please bring to the School Office (please attach a list of ingredients and baking date).
At the moment our FREEZER IS EMPTY :(
hint hint...See, Judge, Act!
Mathematics Assessment Interview (MAI)
Most students have now completed their Mathematics Assessment Interview (MAI). This assessment is undertaken by every student across all of our diocesan primary schools at the beginning of each year. The MAI data provides valuable information for our teachers which allows planned learning experiences to be targeted to the needs of each student.
This interview is part of the Extending Mathematical Understanding (EMU) system initiative which is an evidence-based, whole-school approach for the teaching and learning of Mathematics.
At St Carthage's we strive to continually improve mathematical outcomes for students through the development of conceptual understanding of Mathematics.
The core beliefs of our whole school approach are that:
1. It is a fundamental right of every student to be numerate.
2. All students can achieve high standards given the right time, support and opportunity.
3. Early and ongoing intervention are essential.
4. All teachers need to be able to articulate the instructional decisions based on their data and pedagogical content knowledge.
Although the information gathered from this interview is primarily used by the classroom teacher to assist with the planning and teaching of mathematics, all families will receive feedback from their child's classroom teacher in the coming weeks.
Best Start Literacy Assessment (Kindergarten)
Best Start Interviews have also been completed by most students in Kindergarten. This assessment provides the opportunity for the classroom teacher to sit with a child one on one, focusing on what that child can do within Literacy. The assessment is not a test but provides teachers with useful information to help support each child's learning at school. Families will also receive feedback to support their child at home in the coming weeks.
Welcome to Kindergarten!
This week we welcomed 69 students to Kindergarten. It has been an exciting but long week for these students and their families. Students have been settling into their classrooms, getting to know their teachers and making lots of friends.
In between learning new routines, lots of fun learning has been occurring. Students have been developing their fine motor skills through a variety of learning activities.
The last two years have seen sport heavily impacted within schools, particularly representative sport. It is exciting to see sport recommence in 2022.

St Carthage's was successful in gaining a grant from the Australian Sports Commission to hold after school sports clinics. Club Connect is designed to connect school sport to local clubs and organisations.
This term St Carthage's is running a AFL, netball, rugby league and tennis program. Students from Year 2-6 were invited to participate in this program. Currently over 120 students have nominated the program. I am extremely excited about the enthusiasm that our students have displayed to participate in the program. There are still limited spaces available in AFL. Please email me if your child would like to participate in this program.
We hope that we can offer this program again next year.
Students are also invited to participate in the Auskick program. Please refer to the flyer below for additional information.
