Week 9, Term 2 2020
Dear parents, staff and students,
So, now we are back with full classes. How has it been in the past few weeks?
Parents still have to leave their children at the school gate. The children play in three different areas each morning before school and at play times.
When children enter and leave their classrooms we have strict rules around frequent handwashing.
As a staff we have socially distanced as much as possible.
We love having all our children back. We want to keep them safe. We want to ensure we are safe too. We can now feel like a school again and, though it is different in many ways, our focus on safety is the same as it ever was. It is just a little more visible than perhaps it was before.
Important flu facts from Queensland Health:
1. Flu is a serious illness for everyone, but particularly for children.
2. Flu strains change each year, so you and your children need to be vaccinated every year.
3. Flu spreads easily between people, particularly children.
− If you (or your child) are unwell, stay home and seek medical advice.
− Wash your hands frequently with soap and running water.
− Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, throw the tissue in the bin and wash your hands.
Having an annual flu vaccination this year can:
∗ Reduce the severity and spread of flu
∗ Prevent you getting flu on top of other respiratory infections that may be circulating
∗ Relieve pressure on our health system
Free vaccine is available for those individuals at greatest risk of severe flu. They are:
• all children aged 6 months to less than 5 years of age
• pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy
• persons 65 years of age or older
• all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 6 months and older
• individuals aged 6 months and older with medical conditions which increase their risk of severe influenza and its complications.
All other Queenslanders can purchase the vaccine from their doctor or immunisation provider.
Visit your doctor or other childhood immunisation provider to arrange vaccinations.
Rebooting School Sport
This week we have received some great news about the rebooting of school sport in Queensland. Yesterday a letter to all parents was sent via schoolzine outlining our amended school Athletics Carnival. Thanks to Mr Luck for ensuring that all children are able to participate in this carnival and we look forward to the final results in Week 4 of Term 3.
Unfortunately there are many sports that will not occur in 2020 as the timelines for state championships have passed during the restrictions due to COVID. It is also critical to note that although some events may continue, their format will vary considerably and there will be limited to no capacity for spectators as we abide by social gathering restrictions. It is important to note that although schools are largely exempt from many restrictions, in order to be able to deliver the curriculum in a practical manner, this does not extend to school sport. There are also some discussions in local circles regarding additional options for our students for interschool sport events for Term 4 rather than Term 3 as normal. For more information, please see Mr Luck’s Sport Update and keep an eye out for more details as they come to hand.
Camps and Excursions
We are currently considering which camps we will continue planning for and which are no longer feasible for 2020. Whilst talk of camps has been rather quiet recently, we are looking at providing opportunities for our Year 5 and Year 6 students. We will be moving forward with our communication regarding camps early in Term 3 once we have confirmation that camp sites are open to all schools. This we hope will also help keep families well informed to start planning financially for the costs that are involved. We know that this is a highlight for our students in Years 5 and 6 each year and we can’t wait to see the students off on new adventures and learning experiences shortly!
Reading Your Child’s Report Card
Teachers and students alike have been busy completing and marking assessment pieces to contribute to their overall results for this semester’s report cards. As mentioned in a previous newsletter, report cards for Semester 1, 2020 will be distributed in Week 2 of Term 3 and will report on five Learning Areas: Religious Education, English, Mathematics, Physical Education, Science or HASS. This change in timing for 2020 is due to COVID-19 restrictions and has allowed more time in class for teachers to monitor student learning and their progress.
At St Saviour’s Primary School, we report to parents to:
- Communicate progress of individual learning
- Make comparative judgements against the achievement standard
- Inform parents of the application and attitude of students towards their learning
- Be accountable to the intention of our teaching as communicated at the start of each unit
Your child’s progress is graded on a five-point scale based on their progress throughout Semester 1. This progress is measured against their year level Achievement Standard. So what does that mean? The Achievement Standards describe the depth of understanding and the sophistication of knowledge and skill expected of students at the end of each year level or band of years. It means that your child’s teacher/s covers curriculum and then assesses your child’s knowledge, skills and understanding against what they have taught at this point in the year. The teacher uses evidence from your child’s work to give an overall grade of achievement at one of the following five points:
Evidence in the student's work typically demonstrates that the student has the targeted knowledge and a sophistication of conceptual understanding, an excellent application of skills and the ability to transfer the above to new situations.
Evidence in the student's work typically demonstrates that the student has the targeted knowledge and a developing sophistication of conceptual understanding, a strong application of skills and they are beginning to transfer the above to new situations.
Evidence in the student's work typically demonstrates that the student has the targeted knowledge and expected conceptual understanding, expected application of skills and they are able to transfer the above to familiar situations.
Evidence in the student's work typically demonstrates that the student is developing the targeted knowledge and conceptual understanding, developing the application of skills and to transfer the above to familiar situations.
Evidence in the student's work typically demonstrates that the student has an emerging knowledge and conceptual understanding, has an emerging application of skills and can apply the above in scaffolded situations.
Other notations against Academic Achievement on the report card may include:
Insufficient evidence to make a judgement
M or *
Modified program delivered and assessed
Thank you to each and every member of our school community for your support, understanding and adaptability over the past few months. We are so proud of our staff and students' resilience through this time - they have risen on many occasions in supporting each other.
A reminder to parents that Term 2 will end for students on Thursday 25th June as Friday is a professional development day for staff.
We look forward to seeing all students return to school on Monday 13th July. Hoping we stay and well over the holiday period.
Wishing you all a well rested holiday break
Semester One Report Cards
Students will still receive report cards for Semester One. These report cards will reflect the fact that students have been learning both remotely and at school.
In accordance with Toowoomba Catholic Schools' and Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority directives, teachers will report on a minimum of five learning areas. Every year level will report on Maths, English, Religion and HPE. Year levels will then choose to report on Science and/or HASS depending on the evidence of learning that has been collected. That means that there will not be a grade for The Technologies, The Arts and Japanese this semester.
Teachers will still be providing marks via an A-E scale. These will be supported by comments in Maths and English and a general comment.
Given the timing of students returning to school, these report cards will be sent home on Friday July 24 (second week of Term 3).
If you have any questions about the report cards or are concerned in any way, please feel free to contact me on email@example.com
Semester One Academic Awards
As Semester One report cards will be sent home in Term 3, academic awards will also be held until after the holidays. Academic awards are presented to students who perform exceptionally well in all learning areas over the course of a semester. One member of each class also receives an academic encouragment award for the effort they put into their learning over a semester.
Interschool Sport - Term 3
Term 3 is usually the term that our Year 5 and 6 students participate in interschool sport. Unfortunately, this competition has been cancelled this year due to restrictions that are in place regarding COVID 19. It is unknown whether there will be interschool sport in Term 4 this year. If there is sport in Term 4, we will certainly have discussions around whether St Saviour's Primary will participate.
I do understand that these Friday afternoons, where students can compete against other schools, are an important part of their education. We will certainly monitor the latest restrictions that are in place in the event that a replacement activity could take place.
Darling Downs Trials
The following sports will still have Darling Downs Trials in 2020. When the dates are closer, parents will receive a Schoolzine alert from Mr Luck. Students will need to see him and collect a nomination form. Please remember that these trials won't be a 'come and try' day. Students will need to excel in their chosen sport and be very competent in the rules and regulations.

Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to the final newsletter for Term 2.
CLASS AWARDS (Week 8 & 9 Assembly): Congratulations to the following students who received CLASS AWARDS for their actions, effort or achievements during Weeks 7 & 8.
At the final assembly for Term 2 next week, the Leadership Team will be presenting our end of term, Cornerstone Value Awards and also the (once a semester), Adopt a Cop Awards. Sergeant Kirsty Gleeson hopes to be able to join us to present these awards and also chat with the students in their classes on topics such as cybersafety, bullying and treating people with respect.
Prayer for REFUGEE WEEK:
Almighty and merciful God, whose Son became a refugee and had no place to call his own;
look with mercy on those who today are fleeing from danger, homeless and hungry.
Bless those who work to bring them relief;
inspire generosity and compassion in all our hearts;
and guide the nations of the world towards that day when all will rejoice in your commonwealth of justice and of peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Sabeel Center, Jerusalem
At Assembly this week we acknowledged that in the last couple of years, SSPS has been fortunate to be able to welcome and embrace several refugee families into our midst. As things start to become "more normal" and restrictions are lifted,
"let us not forget those people who have been left without family, without country and without support and have come to Australia seeking protection. Let us all do what we can to make this year a year of welcome and this a welcoming land."
(Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ)
ROSIES VISIT: (Not Sr Rosie)
Last Friday we had the privilege of meeting with Fay and Jim Stein who coordinate the local branch of ROSIES. We talked about all the amzing things that ROSIES do for the less fortunate in our community.
Fay and Jim have been giving their time to ROSIES three times a week for the past 8 years. The people who they have been helping are the lonely, poor and/ or homeless in Toowoomba. They help by distributing food/ clothes and other helpful items.
This term, the Year 5s are donating fruit each week and the Year 6s are donating jumpers and jackets as part of a Jumper & Jacket Drive where the school community has been asked to assist with collection.
Fay and Jim were invited to come to SSPS to make us aware that we are very fortunate and that some people are not. Listening to Fay and Jim highlighted the importance of connecting with our wider community. ROSIES provides an important service, which will always be of great value to those less fortunate than us but ROSIES also provides a means by which we can too, offer support, compassion and practical assistance. ( Kyrillos, Grace O, Gemma & Lizzie- Yr 6 Councillors)
SACRAMENTAL PROGRAM: Assuming that restrictions continue to be lifted and we are able to have up to 100 in the Cathedral, we are looking at having two sessions for First Reconciliation at the end of Week 2, next term. Proposed dates/times are:
July 24 (Friday 6pm) & July 25 (Saturday 10:30am) So please make a note of these dates in your diary.
Hoping that you have a good "end of the week",
St Saviour’s Primary School Athletics Carnival 2020
We are very excited to announce that we will be running an amended athletics carnival in line with the COVID-19 restrictions in Term 3.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions a total of only 100 people (this includes students and adults) can attend the carnival. Students will therefore be competing in events in PE lessons and in class/age groups (program below). Unfortunately, to adhere to the 100 people restriction parents are unable to attend the carnival this year. Our main objective is to make sure the students get to compete in the athletics carnival. We are conscious that our year six leaders look forward to their final athletics carnival and they will still get the chance to lead, cheer and help out over the course of the weeks.
With field events being conducted during PE lessons, 1st, 2nd and 3rd (2011 – 2008) will not be able to be worked out until all students have competed in the event. All results will be recorded and winners for each age group will be announced at the following assembly.
Sprints, relays and ball games will be conducted by age groups and ribbons will be given to first, second and third. All races from 2011 – 2008 will be timed. Unfortunately, due to the size of our oval, no 200m and 800m events will happen this year.
The carnival will take a total of four weeks to complete as outlined below and I thank parents and students for their understanding during this time. At the end of the carnival, age champions and an overall house winner will be announced again on assembly.
We have received notification today that there will be no Zone carnival or Darling Downs Athletics Carnival.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Miss Sleba or myself via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please view attached letter that was sent to all families on Tuesday via SZAPP regarding the Athletics Carnival.
- High Jump in PE Lessons (2012 – 2008) 1st, 2nd , 3rd and one point for every student who participates. Winners will be announced on assembly.
- Mini Hurdles Race in PE Lessons (2015 – 2011) one point for every student who participates.
- Long Jump in PE Lessons (2011 – 2008) 1st, 2nd , 3rd and one point for every student who participates. Winners will be announced on assembly.
- Sack Race in PE Lessons (2015 – 2012) one point for every student who participates.
- Shotput in PE Lessons (2011 – 2008) 1st, 2nd , 3rd and one point for every student who participates. Winners will be announced on assembly.

We have a few more profiles of our P&F Executive coming in Term 3.
Since 2018, Parents and Friends (P&F) have been looking for a change of name. The state body, renamed as Catholic School Parents Queensland (CSPQ) wanted to remove the old stigma that P&F is focused on fundraising, and to focus on the other areas we assist with. Whether it be social events, pastoral activities or coordinating parent assisted activities, the P&F has for years been a link between parents and the education system, bringing the community of the school together for the betterment of the school and most importantly the students, our children.
Considering this, the committee has been discussing changing names. We have come to an agreeance on a name and would like to seek your support for the change. The name we have chosen highlights the ideals that are important to the committee members, and we believe to all parents of the school. We are at essence a tool for engagement, a liaison between parents and the school and working hard to keep our school community interacting and enjoying each other’s company as our children become lifelong friends. We put forward our new name and look for any objections to the change to be raised prior to our next meeting in Term 3.
We are F.A.C.E. = Family and Community Engagement at SSPS.
We look forward to your feedback and welcome all family or community of the school to our meetings. Come along and meet and greet other caring people from our school community. Any conversation or concerns please email us at SSPpandf@twb.catholic.edu.au
Next P&F Meeting – Tuesday 21st July at 5:30pm in the school staff room
Maximum of 20 people can be in attendance. Please register your attendance via email email@example.com
This year has had a lot of impacts, no news to anybody. The P&F has had to make a tough call and this year we will not be able to put together the Family Fun Day like we have in previous years. But we can still have a community event. In November (date to be confirmed) we are planning on having the Colour Run and a family gathering (CoVid-19 restrictions pending) along the lines of a community market afternoon, with bottle stall, raffles and stalls for people to share their wares or business with the school community. So if you have a knack for organisation or party planning and want to share your sense of pride in our community, please put up your hand and let us know how you can help. A small amount of your time will have a large impact, particularly for the kids that have so many of their social engagements impacted this year.
Keep an eye out for our Term 3 fundraiser - HOMESTYLE BAKE PIE DRIVE. Information will be sent home soon. Orders will need to be placed by Wednesday 5 August, for delivery on Wednesday 12th August.
PIZZA TREAT DAY:
Special thanks to our Pizza Treat Day coordinator Cathy Condon and her wonderful volunteers, Mrs Wunsch and Mrs Bishop who helped distribute Pizzas and treats today for everyone at school. Pizza Treat Day is definitley a highlight each term. Thank you.
RECYCLING OF OLD UNIFORMS:

Year 6 visit to the St Saviour’s College Science Laboratory! Week 8 Reversible and Irreversible Changes
When observing the science experiments, I could hear a lot of balloons popping, I couldn’t really smell anything but I could see the smoke from the dry ice as it was really cold and the smoke from the elephant toothpaste which was really hot, so Mr Stokell had to wear gloves.
When we came to the predictions about if they were chemical or physical changes and if they were reversible and irreversible changes, I was able to get all of them right. I think I am a Practitioner and I know more about physical and chemical changes. I know a lot of new information and have a better understanding about it and am now able to identify the difference between reversible and irreversible changes. What I learned was that if you put dry ice in a tube and attach a balloon, the balloon will start to blow up, like it would if you used a helium tank and if you put too much dry ice, eventually it’ll blow up. Another thing that I learned is that dry ice is a physical change because it can turn from a solid into a liquid into a gas and can then transform back into its original form. My favourite science experiment is the elephant toothpaste and it really interested me and I was able to have a lot of fun. I hope to do it again.
Written by Alicia Farkarlun 6W
Out of all the Science experiments we did at the Science lab, elephant toothpaste was my favourite by far! I would love to see it done again. Most of my predictions were correct except for the Sodium Chloride and Silver Nitrate experiment. Now that I’ve gone to that lesson up at the high school, I am much more familiar about physical and chemical changes. I’m also able to identify if experiments are irreversible or reversible. One of the most important safety rules at the lab was to stay a safe distance from the experiments and to not touch anything unless you are told to.
Mrs Doherty showed us a really great example of Atoms. She said that when it’s really, really cold they are all squashed up tightly together, but if you were to heat the object up, the Atoms inside the object will become looser and start to move around more freely causing a solid, liquid or a gas to form. I find it really interesting how the chemicals in liquids, gases and solids mix together to cause a chemical reaction like an explosion or a solid, gas or liquid to form. I’m really glad that we were able to go up to the high school Science lab so that Mr Stockell and Mrs Doherty could explain reversible and irreversible changes to us. I would be excited to go back up to the high school’s Science lab for another lesson about reversible and irreversible changes or something new.
Written by Evangeline Wann
On Thursday morning we had the privilege to go to the high school science lab and experiment real science!
In the first experiment we used copper sulphate and zinc. We saw that the zinc turned to a black colour and bubbles formed upon it. My prediction was correct as I said that It would turn a different colour and become irreversible. In the boiling egg experiment, it became a solid as it was boiling water and began to cook. I predicted that the egg would bubble, but it actually became a solid and the egg white floated down to the bottom. It was a chemical change as well as irreversible. My favourite experiment was the Hydrogen Peroxide and potassium iodide (also known as elephant toothpaste!). When Mr Stokell poured the two chemicals together they got really hot and bubbled over the beaker and steam was coming from it! I predicted that it would be a chemical change and irreversible as you can’t get it back to it’s original form. I also predicted that it would bubble over. I was correct.
The next experiment used a balloon and dry ice. The balloon blew up due to the carbon-dioxide produced by the ice. I predicted that it would be a physical change and irreversible as the dry ice would melt but due to Mrs Doherty’s presentation about atoms , I knew that it could go back to a solid! In the fifth experiment, the materials they used were lead nitrate and potassium. In this experiment, Mr Stokell added both of them into one beaker and it turned into a monkey yellow and became a solid! I predicted that it would be a chemical change and irreversible. I also said it would stay clear, but I was wrong. Since I went to the high school, I have a better understanding of how to recognise what is a reversible and irreversible and what things need to be to deal with experiments.
Written by Gemma Smith
During our time at the college for Science, we got the opportunity to see many different experiments including; Copper Sulphate + zinc; boiling an egg; Elephant Toothpaste; Dry Ice (Balloons etc.) ; Lead Nitrate + Potassium Iodide; Sodium Chloride + Silver Nitrate; Mixture of water and sand. During all of these experiments, we had to predict what would happen and whether we thought it was going to be reversible or irreversible, chemical or physical change. Then, we either got to perform the experiment ourselves, or Mr Stokell would. In all of the experiments, we had to observe whether it was physical/chemical or reversible/irreversible and had to write down our findings. Only one experiment had a peculiar smell but most of them you could just see and hear.
Mrs Doherty explained each experiment in detail and very thoroughly. She showed us the particles, chemicals and atoms by writing the symbols on classmates hands and then showing us how they reacted and what had happened. These explanations really helped me to understand what had happened and whether it was a reversible or irreversible change. Most of my predictions were correct because I guessed correctly at whether it was going to be a reversible/irreversible change and a chemical/physical change. After the lesson at the college, I now have a better understanding of physical/chemical changes and reversible/irreversible changes because we got to visualize it and got a clear explanation. I can identify reversible and irreversible changes easier now and I am feeling great about them now. I learned that when two chemicals are put together they can react and can either separate or make a new substance. I wonder if physical changes can be irreversible, and if chemical changes can be reversible? I noticed that for a lot of the experiments Mr Stokell had to wear protective equipment such as gloves, goggles and a lab coat. My favourite experiment would definitely have to be the Elephant Toothpaste experiment: When Hydrogen Peroxide + Potassium Iodide mixed together with dishwashing liquid and food colouring (for decoration) and bubbled out of the test tube. This was my favourite because it had a fascinating reaction and made me wonder.
I really enjoyed our Science lesson at the college and I would like to thank Mrs Doherty and Mr Stokell for an amazing lesson.
