Coming Up

Year 7 Tour @ Carbrook, Beenleigh Eisteddfod, Assembly, Volleyball Schools Cup & Netball Schools Gala

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

Welcome to Term 3!

 

I hope all our families were able to take things at a slower pace and enjoy some family time over the holiday break. In our household, there is always a puzzle sitting on the dining room table for anyone who wants to add to it. As I started building the frame of a new one in the holidays, it reminded me of how much we depend on that frame being put together first and being done right, so all the other pieces connect to form the bigger picture.

 

In Assembly yesterday we talked about the Calvary character virtue puzzle. Character traits are focused on throughout each stage and as students move through the stages, the bigger picture of their character is formed. A focus on these character virtues happens purposefully and incidentally each day through the language we use when teaching and speaking to the children and through our Formation program. Each virtue, specifically chosen to build in our students what they will need most as they grow and develop during these stages of their lives. Feel free to tap into this at home and share with us the ways that you focus on building your child’s character.

Term 3 Clubs

We are very excited about the new clubs starting up this Semester. Debating and Public Speaking competitions are in full swing this term. We have Running Club replaced with Volleyball training, now held during break times in preparation for upcoming competitions. Lots of our favourite clubs such as JAG, Chess and Missions are continuing. Teachers have gone through the club options with the students and we encourage parents to also chat at home with your child about the different clubs they would like to try out.

Clubs are a great place to make new friends and discover gifts and interests we never know were there until we step into the right environment and try. Check out the Term 3 clubs options below.

Parent Teacher Interviews

Parent Teacher Interviews are scheduled for next week, Tuesday 16 and Thursday 18 July. Please use the Parent Portal or the Orbit App to book in your interview. These will be a timely check in now that Semester 1 reports are released, and to set goals for the new semester.

Happy Hens Country Cuisine Wednesdays!

Wednesdays are our Country Cuisine days at the Happy Hens Tuckshop. Parents, use the college app to order Tuckshop for your child on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Look out online for our rotating Wednesday specials; Nachos, Teriyaki Chicken Poke Bowls, Pasta Bolognaise and Cottage Pie.

 

I’m sure Sheryl would never say no to volunteers – it’s not too late to send her an email if you’d like to help out as a once off or regularly throughout the term.  Happy Hens Roster

Term 3 Unit Overviews - Discovery

Returning from the school holidays we have found that there are still a few different viruses going around in our community. To safeguard our students as much as possible, if your child is unwell with viral symptoms (runny nose, sore throat, fever, rash, cough) please consider keeping them home until symptoms are no longer present. Please note if your child presents to the Health Hub unwell with viral symptoms and/or with a temperature of 37.5 or above you will be contacted to collect your child. Please continue to remind your child to wash their hands and cover their mouths when they sneeze or cough.

WE NEED YOU!!!!

At Calvary, you are invited to be an active partner in the education of your child/ren and we would like to invite you to provide us with feedback.

 

We are seeking feedback to help us get a greater understanding of what you value, what we are doing well and to hear about how your child's learning journey has been going.

 

This year we would like to invite you to attend an in-person session to talk with an external Marketing Consultant, Phil Winton. Phil has been working with the College as an external consultant since 2022.

 

The focus of these sessions will be to ask you a series of questions and work through and unpack your responses. This process will allow broader discussion and help provide us with a richer understanding of your feedback.

 

The Executive Leadership Team will not be made aware of who attended the sessions.

 

For parent registration, 3 sessions on Monday 22 July
