HEADMASTER’S WELCOME

It is a genuine delight to welcome you into the All Saints family, a place where I know you will feel nurtured and welcomed. From the first day at school (once you have recovered from the trauma of the car park), we will work tirelessly to vindicate the trust you have placed in us by choosing our school for your child. As a community, we take the core triangular relationship between parent, child and school very seriously indeed. We will, over the years, rely on your support and involvement a great deal, just as you will learn to rely on us. It will be an exciting, occasionally challenging and ultimately rewarding journey for us all. Your child will inevitably have difficult days – disappointment about a test score; a falling out with a friend; days when they just don’t feel 100%. These days will be the exception rather than the rule and we will be walking alongside them, helping them to keep things in perspective and loving them as best we can. Our discipline policy is redemptive rather than punitive in its nature and we view those mistakes that we all make from time to time as essential tools for growth and learning. We will depend upon your support at such times. Invariably anti-social behaviour in all its various forms has its root in something that the child is anxious or uncertain about, so please let us know if there are things happening in your child’s life which might give rise to such feelings. There are many ways for you to get involved as new parents. You might consider becoming a Year Level Coordinator,

arranging social events for the parents of children in your child’s year level; we have various support groups – the Parents and Friends Association, the Friends of Music, and vport. Alternatively, you might consider coming in to help with reading or other class-based activities. By getting involved in school life and sacrificing that most precious of commodities, your time, you will show your child that not only do you love them but that you value education and believe in its transformative power. What a gift that is to bestow. This New Students’ Guide contains information that is designed to prepare your child for the 2019 academic year. Please note pages 5 and 6 contain very important information relating to orientation sessions (in 2018 and 2019), while pages 7 to 10 include information on uniforms, books and stationery for 2019. If you would like clarification of any points covered in this guide please do not hesitate to contact our Main Administration office, or if you have any questions whatsoever concerning your child’s education, please contact your child’s Class Teacher, Tutor, Year Level Coordinator or Head of House at any time in the future. I very much look forward to meeting you personally in the near future and working closely with you in the years ahead. With best wishes,

PATRICK S WALLAS

The School operates a text hire scheme which enables students to borrow their textbooks, charged annually. Any damaged or non-returned books will be chargeable at replacement cost.

Students from Year 3 to Year 12 will receive a Student ID Card. These ID cards identify your child as a student of All Saints and can be used as formal ID. They are issued during the first term or upon commencement at school. This card will contain

information such as the student’s date of birth, house and year level. These cards can be used for print services and can be linked to their Flexischool account for tuckshop purchases.

UNIFORM FITTINGS

Qualified staff are available for the fitting of all uniforms and new families are urged to make an appointment in November. Appointments are not available in January (please see next page for full fitting appointment details). It is important for all new students to make a uniform fitting appointment with the Friends of All Saints Shop. Please contact on 07 5587 0346 to make your appointment. We understand that students may grow over the Christmas break. Should this occur, we will be more than happy to exchange any unsuitable clothing prior to the commencement of school. All uniforms are to be paid for at the time of purchase. Payment methods are cash, cheque or card.

Girls may wear either a plain gold or silver single stud, or a plain gold or silver single sleeper in the lobe of the ear, but no other jewellery is acceptable. Nail polish and makeup are not permitted.

LABELLING

It is very important students label every article that is worn or brought to school. A large proportion of property found is unnamed, not named fully or the marking is unclear or worn. Articles that are commonly found unnamed are shoes, jumpers, sports jerseys, sport bags containing swimwear/sports clothes, camp gear, pencil cases, calculators and musical equipment. Please ensure all bags, including sports bags, are named. Due to health reasons, unnamed lunchboxes and drink bottles will only be kept for 24 hours then thrown away. All unnamed lost property that is unclaimed by the end of term will be disposed of. Some suggestions for labelling include: • Set of labels (stick on and iron on) • Laundry marker (may need to be redone from time to time) All hats are embroidered with the student’s name at the time of purchase.

For timetable, service and pass application information visit their website www.surfside. com.au/school-services/queensland-school-services or contact their Southport office on 07 5552 2700. Please refer to the Translink Journey Planner if you do not find the appropriate school service - jp.translink.com.au. Please note, Gold Coast school bus services only run on public school days. Each afternoon, Junior School children are taken to, and supervised at, the school bus stop which is located inside the turning circle at the School’s main entrance. Middle School and Senior School students may make their own way to the bus stop. When boarding the bus, students are required to queue sensibly, with Junior School students entering the bus first, filling seats from the front, followed by Middle School students and then Senior School students. (We do not recommend bus travel for the younger Junior School students in their first weeks unless the child is travelling with an older sibling or friend).

TRAVEL BY CAR

Students must be dropped off and picked up within the school grounds in designated car parks only. We do not allow parents to use Highfield Drive as a pick up/set down point. Parking during school hours on Highfield Drive is also prohibited. Senior School students who wish to drive must refer to the Student Driver policy (also listed on the following page).

The School has three car parks (see map on page 22). The Junior School car park is along the service road behind Main Administration and under the Early Childhood Centre. Pre Prep parents have priority in the Prep parking area between 8.00am and 8.30am each morning to allow them to sign their Pre Prep child in. We ask that other families use our ‘Kiss and Drop’ zone and encourage their children to walk independently to their classroom. Year 6 student leaders are also available to assist walking our younger students to their classrooms. The Middle School car parks are adjacent to the Administration building and Languages / Year 9 block. The Senior School car park is behind International House.

STUDENT DRIVERS

Students who wish to drive to school or school functions must register with the Director of Pastoral Care and agree to travel under the terms and conditions set out at registration. Students who wish to travel as passengers must also be registered. Student drivers who are deemed dangerous will be suspended from parking on campus. In light of congestion and its attendant risks, no learner drivers are allowed to drive on school property. Please ensure you change drivers before entering the School. Once students have their licence, they must apply for a school permit before they can drive to school. Students must also apply for permission to carry passengers. Both the driver and the passenger must have their parents’ signatures. Yellow registration and permission forms are available from Senior School Administration. A sticker, with passenger numbers, will be issued and must be attached to the front window of the car. If Year 12 students choose to park in the Senior School car park, they are not permitted to leave the School until 3.45pm. Failure to follow this rule results in traffic congestion at the Southern exit and the inability to quickly clear parent pick-up cars from the top car park (i.e. if students want or need to leave before 3.45pm, they must park outside school grounds). Year 11 students do not have access to the Senior School car park and are requested not to drive to school.

Semester fees and levies as per the fee schedule will automatically be invoiced to your school account. A statement will be sent out at the start of Semester 1 and 2 and payment must be made within 14 days. School accounts can be paid by credit card on Parent Lounge Payway or BPay via online banking. School accounts may also be paid in person at the School. ASG Funding Solutions (formally School Plan) is available to parents for payment of the tuition and levies component of school fee accounts at the beginning of each semester only. Details of ASG Funding Solutions are available at www.asg.com.au/funding-solutions. Periodically the School may charge your school account for other curricular activities, such as camps or excursions. These additional fees are payable on issue of your monthly statement. The School does not offer account facilities for purchases made through the Friends of All Saints Shop. Performing Arts Music and Drama fees are calculated at eight lessons per term and billed each semester through a separate entity – Friends of All Saints Performing Arts Trust. Such fees must be paid by BPay, cash or cheque. Payment for these fees is not available through the Parent Portal.

Some Senior School lost property is located in Senior Administration; however most Middle and Senior School lost property will be at the Friends of All Saints Shop.

TECHNOLOGY INTERNET AND PRINTING

The School has a system in place to monitor student use of internet access and printing from computers. It is necessary to control and try to limit the use of these facilities to a reasonable level. Students should be aware that all their internet searching can be tracked. We have filters in place to prevent student access to sites deemed undesirable and those with no academic value. All students are allocated 2GB of internet usage per school day and $10 is allocated for printing at the beginning of the school year. This amount is adequate for most students in the course of their normal studies. Students in some subjects may find it necessary to top up their printing account from time to time. Topping up these accounts can be done by bringing cash to the Middle and Senior School Library. These charges cannot be directly billed to school fee accounts. Printers are located all around the School including the library and tuckshop. These all scan, copy and print in black and white (default setting) or colour.

LOST PROPERTY All lost property found around the School is collected and deposited in the big wheelie bins clearly labelled ‘Lost Property’, which are located outside the Junior School Administration and Friends of All Saints Shop. Some Senior School lost property is located in Senior Administration; however most Middle and Senior School lost property will be at the Friends of All Saints Shop.

TECHNOLOGY INTERNET AND PRINTING

The School has a system in place to monitor student use of internet access and printing from computers. It is necessary to control and try to limit the use of these facilities to a reasonable level. Students should be aware that all their internet searching can be tracked. We have filters in place to prevent student access to sites deemed undesirable and those with no academic value. All students are allocated 2GB of internet usage per school day and $10 is allocated for printing at the beginning of the school year. This amount is adequate for most students in the course of their normal studies. Students in some subjects may find it necessary to top up their printing account from time to time. Topping up these accounts can be done by bringing cash to the Middle and Senior School Library. These charges cannot be directly billed to school fee accounts. Printers are located all around the School including the library and tuckshop. These all scan, copy and print in black and white (default setting) or colour.

MIDDLE AND SENIOR SCHOOL LIBRARY

Middle and Senior School Library opening hours: Monday to Thursday 7.45am to 6.00pm Friday 7.45am to 5.00pm

The Middle and Senior School library provides an extensive selection of digital and print resources for students to access. It also offers a variety of study spaces to cater for individuals, small groups and whole class visits. Each of these has appropriate technology and resources to enhance student learning such as writable desks, white boards, wall mounted touch screens and the ability for students to connect their own devices to larger screens. The Room with a View is a beautiful space for quiet reading or working on your device. After school this is a quiet zone. There is also an outdoor area for students. The library also has a media hub with three large screen TVs broadcasting the latest news and sports throughout the day.

Students are welcome to come to the library before school, during break and after school to read, work on assignments, do their homework or undertake research. Students are encouraged to borrow from the library as often as they wish and there are almost no limits to the amount of resources they can borrow. Occasionally books with a direct curriculum focus may be placed on a borrowing freeze but this is usually only for a short period of the term. If the students have overdue materials a temporary restriction may be placed on their account. However, they are most often still allowed to borrow and are reminded to return the outstanding loans. Parents are encouraged to assist their children in the selection of reading materials and may like to borrow resources for their own reading or interest. The library maintains two digital platforms, Overdrive and BorrowBox, for accessing audio and ebooks. Students may access these at any time from any place. Links to these can be found on the School’s learning management system (FIDO).

The name of the groups are ‘ASAS Class of…’ followed by the year your child will be graduating. For example, if your child is starting in Pre Prep in 2019 the Facebook group will be called ‘ASAS Class of 2032’. Search for your child’s year level group and click ‘Join’. A parent coordinator will then approve your request once they verify you are a parent of the School.

The Sick Bay and School Nurse are located in the Main Administration Building and their phone number 07 5587 0320. The School Nurse will attend to students who have minor complaints at school. When a student needs to go home, every endeavour will be made to contact parents. Please ensure your contact details and child’s medical conditions are always kept up to date.

YEAR LEVEL FACEBOOK GROUP

Volunteer parent coordinators have created closed Facebook groups for each year level – only parents from that year level will be allowed access to each group. These groups are intended as an informal communication tool for parents to connect, meet each other, organise social activities and ultimately help make each family’s school experience best it can be. The name of the groups are ‘ASAS Class of…’ followed by the year your child will be graduating. For example, if your child is starting in Pre Prep in 2019 the Facebook group will be called ‘ASAS Class of 2032’. Search for your child’s year level group and click ‘Join’. A parent coordinator will then approve your request once they verify you are a parent of the School.

At All Saints, we know that some of our students will occasionally need a little extra help, and we make it our business to be available to them when they do. Every academic staff member at All Saints is involved in the School’s Pastoral Care program. Experience suggests that students in need will often approach their favourite teacher for some friendly advice, and it is the staff's willingness to listen and to provide considered advice that is the cornerstone of our Pastoral Care program. It is in such informal interactions that many minor frustrations and concerns can be addressed and solutions achieved. From time to time, students will have special needs relating to their academic performance. Some students will need to be challenged more directly in order to keep them engaged, whilst others might need more specific help with particular aspects of their learning. To this end, a dedicated team of specialist teachers and counsellors offers specific educational support to those students who may need it. The secret to any successful Pastoral Care program is awareness, and at All Saints we pride ourselves on getting to know your child. By building positive relationships between staff and students so that a true sense of partnership develops, we are better positioned to detect those slight changes in behavioural patterns that can indicate a problem. Once a problem has been shared and talked through with someone the student trusts, it never seems quite so insurmountable. The

COUNSELLING building of positive relationships is the cornerstone upon which our Pastoral Care program is constructed.

BEST POINT OF CONTACT

In the Junior and Middle School, the class teacher is the focus of our Pastoral Care program. The class teachers are the best first point of contact with the School. Junior School The Junior School also has two full-time Assistant Heads of School whose roles encompass both pastoral support and curriculum intervention. They are available to work with staff, students and parents in every way possible to help each child reach their potential. Middle School The Middle School also has Year Level Coordinators, whose role have a very big focus on pastoral care. There is also an Assistant Head of Middle School - Pastoral Care. Senior School The main point of contact for pastoral care in the Senior School are the tutors and the Heads of House. There is also a full-time Director of Pastoral Care.

The School Psychologist and School Counsellor assist individual students and families with personal issues. Within the philosophy of the School, caring for students is a shared responsibility and the School Counsellors work alongside family, teaching and support staff to provide a positive learning environment.

EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT Intervention in a student’s learning program (for extension or support) is managed in the classroom by the class/subject teacher. In situations where more intensive and specific help is required, the class teachers and learning support staff work together to prepare the most appropriate management plan. This may involve small group work, withdrawal groups, or additional home study materials. While the School acknowledges that some students may benefit from outside tutoring, we are not in a position to recommend private tutors.

LIFELONG CONNECTIONS

PARENTS & FRIENDS The All Saints Parents & Friends (P&F) Association is an integral part of the All Saints community. The philosophy of the P&F is that ‘Funds are raised only after friends are raised; without the building of a community spirit and the establishment of friendships, little else can be achieved.’ As a result, many functions are not only about raising funds, but also about providing an opportunity for people to meet and a sense of community to be enjoyed. Friendship and fundraising events give parents an opportunity to be involved in their children’s education, gain a greater awareness of the wider aims of the School and enhance their family’s experience at All Saints. P&F committee members are available as points of contact to the wider parent body and class coordinators are appointed for each year level to assist parents to get to know one another in their child’s class. Under the P&F umbrella are several other sub-committees that contribute greatly to the Association and the School. These are: • Friends of Music • Basketball Supporters’ Group • Rugby Supporters’ Group • Netball Supporters’ Group The All Saints Swimming is separately incorporated and operates from the All Saints pool facilities.
