Term 1, 2023, Week 1
Welcome back to 2023 to all of our new and existing families!
With the holidays now a distant memory, there are several pieces of news that I would like to share with the St Saviour's Primary community.
Firstly, I would like to share some staffing news and officially welcome six new staff members to St Saviour's Primary:
We welcome four new classroom teachers with varying backgrounds to our staff. Sarah Logan (Year 1) returns home to Toowoomba from Brisbane, Linda Ogg (Year 2) joins us from Winton, Lisa Cavanagh (Year 3) has vast experience in Toowoomba Catholic Schools and most recently has been an Education Officer and finally Eliza Smith (Year 6) has made the move to Toowoomba from Victoria. You are all most welcome.
Madelyn Robinson will be part of our Prep team in a school officer capacity for Semester 1 this year. Maddy is a welcome addition to our staff and is currently studying to become a teacher, with her graduatation from university planned for half way through this year.
Renee Kilpatrick has come on board as our tuckshop convenor. Renee is a chef with extensive experience. This year tuckshop will run on Mondays and Fridays only. Renee will be making some minor menu changes to begin the year, so please keep an eye on the menu.
In other exciting news, I would like to formally congratulate Mrs Luci Hogan and her husband Lachy on the pending arrival of their first child in Term 2. Exact dates for Luci's parental leave will be finalised in the near future, followed by the advertisement for a Prep teacher to replace her in accordance with the Toowoomba Catholic Schools Recruitment Procedure. Once this procedure is complete, the successful applicant will be announced to the community.
STAFF PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
During the week before students attended school, the St Saviour's Primary staff attended various professional development opportunities. All of these opportunites were linked to the school Annual Action Plan which is informed by the Toowoomba Catholic Schools Strategic Plan.
Key professional development themes included a new staff induction, student protection and code of conduct training, Australian Curriculum, physical activity and learning, non-crisis intervention and a day of spirituality based on our theme for the year 'Mercy Matters'. Classroom teachers also spent time learning about the new students in their class by talking to previous teachers, whilst school officers also attended targeted training for their role.
The beginning of this term also offers many community events including:
Years 3-6 Swimming Carnival at Glennie Aquatic Centre - 31 January from 9am
Parent Information Evening - 1 February. There are three sessions on this night.
Session 1 to be run by classroom teachers in classrooms at 5.15pm.
Session 2 will be presented by leadership in the Mercy Centre at 5.40pm.
Session 3 will be a duplicate of session 1 and will commence at 6.10pm in classrooms.
Parent Engagment Network Meeting Term 1 - Tuesday 14 Feb from 5.15pm (ALL parents welcome with further information in week 3 newsletter)
Welcome BBQ - Thursday 16 Feb - Time TBA - SAVE THE DATE!
I look forward to seeing many parents/carers as these events.
Over the Christmas holidays we received the very exciting news that we have received state and federal funding to refurbish the school library and build four new classrooms next to the current Year 1 classrooms. This will include a new disability lift and an upgrade to the drop off and pick up zone on Lawrence Street.
It is anticipated that the project will go out to tender in late March/early April. Once a suitable building company has been decided upon the project will hopefully commence over the winter school holidays with the aim of being finished early 2024.
Further information will be provided as it becomes available. The realisation of this project is largely due to the commitment of Ms Madonna Sleba and the previous St Saviour's Primary School Board. A fantastic result for the school.
Thank you for reading and I hope all families have enjoyed the first week back at school.
Welcome to our new Staff
Happy New Year to you all and welcome to 2023! Hopefully you had a restful and safe holiday from the school routine. We’re excited to have our school community back together again for a new school year.
The staff have been busy preparing for another busy year.
Part of our preparations meant that we participated in a number of Professional Development opportunities. One in particular, was our Spiritual staff formation day held last Friday. Our Religion focus for 2023, is “Mercy Matters;” We discussed the history of our Mercy school, the key contributions made by Catherine McAuley, the importance of being of service to others in our community and where to for our school heading into 2023. We explored and shared the meaning behind the Cornerstone values and what actions we can take to share the Spiritual and Corporal works of Mercy with our students. We will continue to work together with our students and the wider school community in order to walk in Jesus’ footsteps by serving each other and putting our Mission and Vision into action.
A very practical way YOU can assist us is by being part of our Pastoral Care group for 2023. It is a very important, simple and effective method of contributing to our school community and one which is very much valued and appreciated. If you’re making a lasagne, spaghetti bolognaise, quiche or any type of family meal, please consider making two so that we can store one here at school in the freezer and then we’re able to support our families who are in need. Let’s be positive role models to our students by showing that we can make someone’s day brighter by a simple act of kindness. Thankyou for your support!
Sacramental Program 2023 – It’s not too late to join us!
We will plan to prepare for, and celebrate, the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation and Communion in Terms 1 and 2 this year. If you’d like to enrol your child/ren in the 2023 Sacramental Program, collect a copy of the Enrolment form with a copy of your child/ren’s Baptismal certificate, from the school office or the Parish office. The Parent information session will be held on Thursday 16 February at 7pm in the Cathedral centre. Cluster groups will then begin on either Thursdays 3.30pm or Sundays 10.15am.
Have a great week and thanks for reading!
Welcome to the 2023 School Year,
A special welcome to our new families, both in Prep and throughout the school. We hope that you find us a welcoming, inclusive and friendly community. Next week, at the Parent Info Sessions, will be a great opportunity to meet and greet again, remembering that last year we had to send out the Parent Info via a video.
Change to School Routine for 2023
We are trialing a change to our Morning Tea and Lunch routines, which involves having the students play first, and then eat. This has been instigated in several local schools (and beyond) with the overall feedback being quite positive, in that the students are more settled at the end of the break, after eating and more settled as they head back into the classroom.
So while the break times are the same, the activities have changed :
Morning Tea: (Preps still eat first for MT)
10:45 (15 mins) Yrs 1-6 play time.. toilet/ wash hands
11am (15mins)Year 1-6 eat
11:15 Into class
12:45 (30mins) Prep to Yr 6 play time...toilet/ wash hands
1:15 (15mins) Prep to Yr 6 eat
1:30 Into class
Staff will be monitoring student behaviour, attitudes, etc over the coming few weeks, knowing that for some students it will take a while for them to get used to the change. Parents, please note that all classes have an established "Snack Attack/ Fruit Break" or similar at about 9:30 each morning to help fill tummies to last until 11am.
We will be looking for parent feedback after a few weeks of the trial and will share with you what we notice/ experience here at school. Thank you for your support with this.
Looking further ahead, in Week 7 we have School Photo Day which does involve some preparation, both at our end and for you as Parents/ Carers. Please read the following carefully.

2023 Focus Areas in Teaching and Learning
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful time on holidays spent with family and friends. This week I thought I'd outline a few key areas we are working on in Teaching and Learning for 2023
In 2023 at SSPS, we will support our students to be the best readers they can possibly be! With the two main aims of our project being ‘Academic success for all’ and ‘Quality instruction’, we will all support your children to beome successful, independent readers. Over the coming weeks I’ll include some ideas on how you can support your children with reading at home too.
We continue to embed our Learner Qualities in all we do here at SSPS in 2023. Whether it be showing determination at the Cross Country, or asking questions about the life cycle in Science, our learner qualities are beginning to become common language for us all!
This year we begin to familiarise ourselves with the changes to the curriculum as a result of the national review. We are focussing on familiarising ourselves with what the revised curriculum looks like, as well as beginning to plan using the revised curriculum. We will not be teaching or assessing with the new curriculum until 2024, which will give our educators time to prepare for the changes. More detail on the rollout can be found here.
Have a wonderful week!
Class browse and borrow sessions have begun so please ensure your student has their library bag on the day their class visits the library (see your class communication for details). Year 6O were happy to select and borrow books for their home and classroom reading on Wednesday.
Students are welcome to spend the lunch-time play session in the library each Wednesday where they can read, draw, create with paper, play board games and work on puzzles.
Our Year 6 Library Councillors and volunteer students began their library service this week by unwrapping our new whiteboards.
Thanks Abby, Louis, Isaac and Charlotte!
Prep and Year 1 Library Lessons
These lessons will provide an opportunity for students to;
- give a personal response to our shared stories
- make connections between the story and their experiences and knowledge
- retell the main parts of the story.
Above all, I hope to build on these students' love of stories so they will be keen readers into the future.
Fitness club is a fun way for your child to work on their fitness with their peers in preparation for the SSPS Cross Country in the last week of Term One. These sessions are offered to students in Year Three to Year Six. Fitness club will run every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 7:15am - 8.00am starting on Tuesday the 7th of February 2023 and running till Thursday 23rd of March 2023. Your child is welcome to attend all sessions, once a week or whatever suits your family schedule. These sessions will be run by Mrs McHugh, Mrs Wagner, Mr Logan and myself. If you have any questions, please email me via Brendan.email@example.com.
St Saviour's Primary Swimming Carnival 2023
St Saviour’s Primary Swimming Carnival will be on the 31st of January from 9am to 12pm at Glennie Aquatic Centre. All students in Year Three to Year Six will participate in this carnival. Students will catch a bus from St Saviour’s to Glennie at 8.40am and return to school after the carnival. Children can then be picked up at the normal time of 3pm. Please make sure your child/ren bring togs, towel, goggles, swimming cap, swimming bag and food. All items are to be labelled. A house-coloured swimming cap is available for purchase from the school office for $5. The children can wear coloured shirts to support their individual house. If they choose not to do this, they can wear their sport uniform. Thongs are fine to wear to and from the pool. Please, no zinc, face paint or hairspray. If you have any questions regarding the swimming carnival, feel free to contact me at Brendan.firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have sent out a notification via Parent Portal which requires you to give permission to sporting events for 2023. I have streamlined to process to make it much more manageable for all involved. This means that you will only need to complete one permission form for all sporting event your child is involved in for 2023. The permission form outlines all sporting events/activities. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me Brendan.email@example.com.
Zone and Darling Downs Trials
All Zone and Darling Downs trials will be placed on Parent Portal. Please check Parent Portal regularly or set up notifications on your phone if you wish for your child to be eligible to trial for Zone and Darling Downs sporting teams as you will be required to obtain paperwork from myself. I am unable to nominate students after the closing date so please make sure you do keep an eye on Parent Portal. Any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

What a great time of the year! Welcome to families old and new. As your School Counsellor, I work to ensure the wellbeing of all students in the school. I offer individual counselling, group counselling, psychometric testing, class guidance lessons, and co-ordinate whole school wellbeing initiatives.
We are kicking off the year by continuing our school-wide wellbeing journey with weekly Positive Education Enhanced Curriculum (PEEC) lessons. PEEC is research-based explicit curriculum that was designed in consultation with world-renowned researchers in the field of positive psychology. We look forward to using concepts and skills learned through PEEC to continuing fostering our wonderful SSPS community.
In Week 7 we will welcome Backflips Against Bullying – an evidence-based visiting performance group that uses acrobatics and parkour to engage students and teach them about bullying and harassment. Some key principals discussed will include resilience, exclusion, exit-strategies, powering bystanders and cyberbullying. I look forward to sharing more information about this event as it gets closer!
All families also have access to SSP Wellbeing Hub. Here you will find a variety of social and emotional resources for caregivers and students alike on a range of topics, including external service providers and support options (e.g., Triple P Parenting). I will continue to add content to this hub throughout the year, so don’t be shy to pop in from time to time. This is where you will also find our Bullying Reporting Form (for Grades 4-6) – a digital and confidential way for students and families to report any bullying concerns.
If you have any concerns regarding your child’s wellbeing or adjustment to the new school year, please speak with your child’s class teacher. Alternatively, if you have a general enquiry about the School Counselling service or wellbeing initiatives, please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com
Wishing you all a fantastic start to the 2023 school year.
Welcome to Term 1 2023:
For those of you who are yet to meet the office staff, we would like to introduce ourselves to you. Mrs Julie Robinson and Mrs Jodie McMcLachlan work 5 days a week in the office. Mrs Alex Sleba works Monday - Thursday. Alex is also our school Work Place Health and Safety officer for 2023.
The office is open each day from 8.00 am - 4.00 pm each day. Phone lines are open each day from 8.00 am - 4.00 pm.
We understand that at times, messages need to be delivered to students and we aim to always deliver these messages to the classrooms before going home time. To help ensure that all messages are delivered before 3.00 pm we ask that you please allow enough time for the office staff to do this. Often classes are outside or at PE and if messsages are phoned through at 2.55 pm is almost impossible to deliver these messages on time. We ask that you contact the school no later than 2:45 pm to ensure your child/children receive the message.
If your child is late to school - it is very important that they are signed in at the office as presenting late, before going up to their classroom. School commences at 8.30 am each day. Roll Marking is done between 8.30 am - 8.45 am. All children who are late, must take a Late Slip up to their classroom teacher. Students can sign in on their own if late, however they must report to the office before going to class.
Children who leave school throughout the school day, must be signed out by a parent or guardian in the office. Children are not permitted to walk out of the school grounds without a parent/guardian during school hours. They must also be signed back in once they return to school.
Late Pick Up:
If you are late to pick up your child from school, the children are supervised on Lawrence and Perth Street until 3.30 pm. After 3.30 pm they will be returned to the office, and a parent will be rung about collection.
Please remember to nofity the school office by 9.00 am each day if your child is absent from school. You can do this a number of ways. You can phone and leave a message on the voicemail (before 8am), you can ring and speak to one of the office ladies peraonally or you can submit an an absence form via the parent portal. For any absences that are unexplained you will receive an sms notification from the school about this absence. If emailing your child's teacher regarding an absence, please make sure you also inform the office also as often teachers do not get to check emails once class starts for the day. If your child is away for a long period at a time, we do require you to fill out a form from the office.
If your child presents to sick bay and is too unwell to stay at school, the office staff will phone a parent/guardian to come and collect. It is important to remember that if your child is unwell, we do ask that you keep them home until they are feeling better to return to school.
Parent Portal and School Calendar:
All notifications will be sent home via the Parent Portal. This includes permission notes for class excursions and school sports carnivals. Semester 1 and Semester 2 Report Cards are also uploaded to the Portal. The school calendar is also updated regularly, so please if you are unsure of any dates, check the calendar. If you are having accessing the Parent Portal at any time please contact the office.
Medication at school:
Medication at school can be administered by the office staff, however it is very important to note that any medication administered must be prescribed from the doctor with a doctor's label printed on the medication. We are unable to administer any kind of panadol or paracetemol. Parents will be rung immediately if a child presents with high temps. A medication form must be completed by a parent prior to any medication being given to a student at school.
Children who are asthmatic are requried to have their puffer, spacer and asthma medication plan at school. This includes children who do suffer from seasonal asthma. All asthma medication is kept in the classroom with the teacher. If you are yet to send in your child's asthma medication and current plan, we do strongly advise you to do this as soon as possible.
At times we do have cases of Head Lice present at school. Please see attached flyer from Qld Health outlining the correct steps in treating head lice. If Head Lice are detected on your child whilst at school, a parent will be rung and you will be asked to come and collect immediately and commence treatment at home.

The Prep carpark can become quite congested at peak times - please drive slowly and stop at the pedestrian crossing to check for any families crossing to enter Prep. Please do not stop in the driveway to "run in" and collect your child from Prep. There is limited parks in the Prep carpark, so please do not hold up other parents who are waiting to find a park. If you have collected your child, we ask that you leave as quickly as possible to avoid congestion and hold up's for those parents trying to source a car park. Thank you.
Lawrence Street Parking:
Please remember to take care when driving in Lawrence Street to find a park. Lawrence Street is our main pick up and drop off location, so it is always very busy at peak times in the morning and afternoon. The Cathedral carpark can also become very busy so please ensure you take time and drive with care. Parents can access the Toowoomba Catholic Schools carpark directly opposite our school for pick up and drop off. Please ensure you cross at the school crossing if you are parking in Lawrence Street and need to cross the road. No parking in front of the Boarding School on the circular driveway - this is strictly for Boarding School families to access.
