Show the Love for Townsville http://www.stpeterscaboolture.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/Show-the-Love-for-Townsville-.aspxShow the Love for Townsville <p>​This Thursday, Valentines Day, we will be providing the opportunity for all within our community to ‘Show the Love for Townsville’. As a system, BCE is hosting this opportunity for all within our community of schools to bring a gold coin to donate to the cause of supporting those affected by the extreme weather events in northern Queensland. This gold coin day could potentially raise $85 000 systemwide for distribution by the Townsville Catholic Education Office, to families within the FNQ community. This will not be a free dress day for our students. Your support of this fundraising initiative is appreciated.​<br></p><p><img src="/community-news/SiteAssets/Pages/Show-the-Love-for-Townsville-/ShowTheLoveForTownsville.jpg" alt="ShowTheLoveForTownsville.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:572px;" /><br>​​<br><br></p>
Building Communityhttp://www.stpeterscaboolture.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/Building-Community.aspxBuilding Community<p></p><div style="text-align:justify;">Welcome to the beginning of another wonderful year at St Peter’s. Welcome to all our new ​families and staff. Welcome back to all those who are returning from last year. This year we have set ourselves the challenge: To build a stronger community here at St Peter’s.<br></div><div style="text-align:justify;"><br></div><div></div><div style="text-align:justify;">In recent times, our society has become more aware of personal and global anxieties which pervade many aspects of our life and which isolate us mentally a​nd physically. Social cohesion seems to be at an all time low, with more and more people leading separate, isolated lives. Some may say that social media and technology have made us less able to communicate on a one-to-one human basis, but on the other hand they have connected us in ways that assist those in remote communities be part of the global world. One thing is for sure, the sense of community and commitment to community is not what it used to be.</div><div><br></div><div>How can we, at St Peter’s, build a stronger, better community?  </div><div style="text-align:justify;">Hugh Mackay, a social researcher and author, suggests that we can build social cohesion or community, by acknowledging each other with a ‘hello’ or a smile. He states that we have ‘plenty of time for solitude at home, so once we step out of our door, we have the responsibility to connect with those around us. You’ve got nothing to lose and a community to gain (Australia Reimagined p.158).’<br></div><div><br></div><div style="text-align:justify;">We know that our lives have become increasingly complicated and busy. Busyness is our​ main excuse for not doing a whole range of things. It overwhelms us to the point that our busyness affects our health, our family life and our community. The effects of busyness can be seen in sleep deprivation, being afraid of being still or in solitude and it can distract us and insulate us from being compassionate to others needs. (Mackay,p.78) Sometimes in our busyness others become invisible to us.</div><div><br></div><div style="text-align:justify;">Where to from here? Let’s begin with a commitment to try our best to be physically mindful of those around us. Greet others with a smile. Stop and chat for a short while. Learn the names of the other parents in your child’s class. Make an effort to come along to our​ school functions. Offer assistance to our school fair or Welcome Dance. Keep in the communication loop by reading the newsletter or class letters sent home.</div><div><br></div><div style="text-align:justify;">When you choose to belong to our community, you are choosing to take your place as a  member of this St Peter’s community. At our Welcome Liturgy on Friday, every child and staff member made a commitment to making St Peter’s community stronger, by joining a piece of wool together. Parents who were present, we asked to show their commitment by joining pieces of wool as well. If you would like to add your commitment to our ​ community, drop into the office so you can add your piece of wool as well. Here’s our community piece so far:<br></div><div style="text-align:justify;"><br></div><div style="text-align:justify;"><img src="/PublishingImages/CommunityWool.jpg" alt="CommunityWool.jpg" style="margin:5px;" /><br></div><div><br></div>
St Peter is the Rockhttp://www.stpeterscaboolture.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/St-Peter-is-the-Rock.aspxSt Peter is the Rock<p style="text-align:justify;">It is most important that high standards and school expectations are established at the beginning of the school year. School staff will be enforcing appropriate uniform, hair and jewellery expectations. These are detailed in the parent handbook which can be found on the Parent Portal. All parents agreed to support these expectations at the time of enrolment.<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">​Over the last eighteen months our staff have been engaged in a review of our approach to behaviour support. Currently we are exploring an approach focussing on establishing positive behaviours that support student learning (PB4L). Part of our journey has been a review of our school rules or values. Whilst our school values have not changed, they have been reframed to be more obvious and meaningful in the variety of school contexts.  These rules now form the ‘ROCK’ on which our school is based. They also make the connection to our St Peter’s charism and our Catholic Faith as Jesus told St Peter that he would be the ‘Rock on which he would build his Church’.<br></p><h2><strong>Our ‘ROCK’ values:</strong><br></h2><h3><strong>Responsibility - Our Learning - Care of self and others - Keeping safe and well</strong><br></h3><p><img src="/community-news/SiteAssets/Pages/St-Peter-is-the-Rock/ROCKValues.jpg" alt="ROCKValues.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:572px;" /><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">​New signage has been placed around the school that defines these expectations in each of the different school contexts. Classes will be developing their Class Covenants based around the ‘ROCK” values. These will be presented to the school community during this Friday’s 8:30am liturgy. All parents are welcome.<br></p><p><br></p>
