lxtÜ K tÇw lxtÜ DC itvv|Çtà|ÉÇ VÉÇáxÇà YÉÜÅá All Year 8 students were given a consent form for Hepatitis B, Varicella (Chickenpox) and HPV Vaccinations on Tuesday evening 29 January. Year 10 students have today been given a consent form for Diphteria, Tetanus and Pertussis (Whooping Cough). It is very important that these forms are completed and returned to the College office by 8.00am FRIDAY 1 February. Year 8 will have their first dose of HPV and Hep B vaccinations on Wednesday 20 March at 1.30pm, therefore it is imperative that students return the forms by above date, otherwise they will miss the opportunity to have the vaccination. The Varicella and second HPV vaccinations will take place on Monday 27 May. The final HPV and second Hep B vaccinations will be on Tuesday 29 October. Please note that Year 8 students cannot have the 2nd or 3rd vaccination unless the first one has been administered. The Year 10 vaccination will be given later in the year on Tuesday 28 August and it is highly recommended that they receive this injection as a recent tetanus vaccination is a requirement to be able to attend the Year 10 Camp later this year. This is a free service provided by the Brisbane City Council. Parents are asked to sign and return these forms even if you do not wish your daughter to receive this vaccination. Completed forms will be collected via courier from the College main reception on Friday 3 February. Thank you. Helen Carty - Deputy Principal - Pastoral Care

Once completed you must ensure that each student returns her own envelope even if payment is made in the eldest child’s envelope. Envelopes are not to be placed inside other envelopes as they can often get missed. Please return these envelopes plus your individual photo order on the photo day Tuesday 19 February. Please do not return these to the College Office as it is not a collection point. Unfortunately, if envelopes are not brought on this day, orders will need to be made directly with the photographer (Advanced Life Photography 3216 8280) and a late fee will need to be paid with the order. You can make payments by cash, cheque or money order. NOTE: Credit Cards - Advanced Life also have an automated system for payments by credit card. Go to www.advancedlife.com.au for easy to understand payment instructions. To validate your online payment, you will be issued with an 8 digit receipt number. As proof of payment this must be written on the envelope in the space provided. Your receipt number must be recorded on your envelope and returned to school for your order to be completed. You can also make payments by cash, cheque or money order. Thank you.

We have already had a wonderful response from some of our new Year 8 Parents who have volunteered to assist with Year 8 Parent gatherings and social functions for this year. What does it involve? Parent Year Level Representatives generate community spirit by organising events such as drinks by the pool, dinner and other social events. If you have attended one of these events and enjoyed it, consider the planning that went into it. However these are not onerous tasks and we are happy to refer you to others who have acted as reps to determine if this is something you would like to do.

The information below is taken from the 2013 Parent Handbook which is available on the College Website. They relate to the critical issue of the partnership between the school and parents to ensure that your daughter’s safety and well-being is given the highest priority. There are some changes to procedures, so I would ask that all parents read this information carefully. Helen Carty - Deputy Principal – Pastoral Care ABSENCE FROM SCHOOL In the best interest of your daughter’s safety it is ESSENTIAL that you contact the School Office or the Absentees line 3394 9964 as early as possible if she is absent from school. If the office is not open a message can be left. This is the only way to determine if there is a valid reason for your daughter’s absence. If your daughter has not arrived and no notification has been received by 9.00 am, you will be sent an SMS message asking that you contact the College to verify your daughter’s absence. At intervals telephone checks are made to ensure that absences are legitimate. Requests for special absence from school must be directed, in writing, to the Principal. While the educational value of overseas or other extended trips is recognized as is the occasional need for family holidays in term time, the priority of regular attendance must always be considered.

ILLNESS PROCEDURE 

If a student is ill in class, she should tell her class teacher who will sign the Student’s Movement Log if she/he gives permission for the student to leave class to go to Sick Bay. She should then go directly to the Sick Bay.



Our duty of care to your daughter means that under no circumstances is your daughter to contact you on the College phone, her mobile phone, by text message or email to arrange to be collected from school.



Parents will be contacted by staff and asked to collect their daughter where necessary.



Parents are asked to take staff advice and come willingly to collect your daughter.



It is vitally important that parents notify the school of an emergency contact number so that arrangements can be made for the welfare of a sick student if her parents cannot be contacted.

PARENTAL CONTACT WITH SCHOOL The Homeroom Teachers are responsible to the Principal for the general behaviour and pastoral care of the homeroom group. Subject teachers are responsible for monitoring the behaviour and progress of students in individual subjects. Parents with any concerns should contact the homeroom or subject teacher through the school office either by telephone or email. If appropriate, the teacher will direct the issue to another member of staff - Subject Coordinator, Year Coordinator, School Counsellor, Learning Enrichment Teacher. Staff cannot be expected to respond to emails outside of school hours and may take some time to respond to emails during the school day because of their teaching commitments. Urgent requests or concerns should be conveyed by telephone through the school office; staff will ensure they are attended to in a timely manner. All enquires about students should be made at the office. Parents must not go directly to classrooms. Parents must not go to staffrooms or offices without prior arrangement.

SUPERVISION BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL Supervision of students begins at 8.10am and finishes at 3.30pm each day. No responsibility for students is taken outside those times, other than students involved in particular activities under the supervision of a particular teacher, coach or other staff member. These activities may include training for sporting teams, Music Ensemble rehearsals, Club activities or meetings. Some other facilities are made available to students outside the general supervision times. The Library is open between 7.45am and 4.30pm. A staff member will be available in Room 210 each morning between 7.15am and 8.00am for assistance with Maths and supervision of school related computer use. No responsibility can be taken for students not involved in one of these activities before 8.10am or after 3.30pm. When social functions or sporting activities are held at Loreto, staff will remain behind until all students have been collected. It is therefore most important that students are collected punctually. For sporting activities off-site, staff will transport back to Loreto any students who have not been collected by the appointed time. Staff will take no further responsibility for supervision. Students will then be expected to wait in the undercroft until collected by parents. Helen Carty - Deputy Principal – Pastoral Care

\Vg hÑwtàx ]tÇâtÜç ECDF The ICT Technical staff have had a busy holiday break preparing all of the ICT equipment for the start of the year. The major focus this year is that all students will now have their own laptop to use both at school and at home. This will allow the continued development of digital pedagogies and of course increases the availability of resources to the students. This access does come with significant responsibility for our students to use the technology wisely and productively. To encourage the responsible use of social media in particular, we are promoting the ‘THINK BEFORE YOU POST’ concept. The picture below outlines the process by which we will be encouraging our Loreto students to use social media and texting in a socially responsible and culturally acceptable manner.

   

Laptop Distribu on Informa on  Year 12 Year 12 student will receive their laptops on Wednesday 30th January once the orientation day with Year 8 students has finished. These are reconditioned laptops from our student and staff laptops of last year. They are provided with a new carry bag and will allow access to College resources when the student is both at school and at home. There is no cost to parents for this part of the laptop program as it will be only for the year. Year 10 Year 10 students will receive their laptops on Tuesday 5th February. During the day each of the Year 10 Homerooms will be given a lesson to allow for the laptop to be correctly setup as well as some training in the use of the new equipment. Students will login for the first time and programs will be checked. In the afternoon a parent must come along to school to sign the rental agreement documents so that the girls can then take the laptop home. No laptops can go home unless this occurs. Supporting documentation on setting up your wireless connection and Cyber Safety issues will be provided as well. This pickup can occur between 3.30pm – 6pm on Tuesday 5th February in the Mulwith Building NOT the MWC as previously advertised.

Year 8 Year 8 students will receive their laptops on Monday 11th February. A similar process to that outlined for the Year 10 students will occur where during the day where the students will be given instructions and training in the setup and use of their laptops. The distribution will involve a parent information evening and then at the conclusion of the information giving, parents will be able to sign the rental agreement and the students will be able to take their laptops home. No laptops can go home unless this occurs. Supporting documentation on setting up your wireless connection and Cyber Safety issues will be provided as well. This Information session will be held on Monday 11th February in the Mary ward Centre starting promptly at 7pm. It is very important that the students and at least one parent attend this evening.  

ID Cards All students must carry their ID cards with them at all times. These are crucial for printing, borrowing of library resources and for Auto Self-Registration when student arrive late at school. Year 8 and students new to the College in other year levels will be issued with ID cards immediately. All other students were asked to retain their ID card for the start of the year until ID photos could be taken in mid-February. All students will be issued with new Loreto College lanyards and card holders. Replacement cards cost $5 and can be obtained from Mrs Bongaarts in student reception.

Printing All students are allocated a print allowance of $15 for the year. If returning students still had credit from last year the $15 will be added to that. A double sided B & W print costs 10c and a double-sided colour print costs 40c. We would encourage the girls to think carefully before they print as once the $15 is exhausted they will have to pay Mrs Bongaarts in student reception to obtain more print credit.

Parent Lounge A reminder to parents that you can access a great deal of information about the College and the activities of your daughter by accessing our parent portal – ‘Parent Lounge’. This portal can be accessed via the Loreto College website – www.loreto.qld.edu.au and by going to the Staff, Student and Parent Services tab in the ‘Quick Links’ menu on the home page. Returning parents were provided with a user name (your parent code) and a password last year. New parents will have these details mailed to them. You are able to change your password if you have forgotten by clicking on the ‘Forgotten Password’ link on the bottom left of the login. Some parents have contacted us about some difficulty in changing their password and most of these problems seem to be associated with a spam blocking issue we are having with Gmail and Hotmail email addresses in particular. We are working through these problems with these organisations at the moment so we ask for your patience.

TEENAGERS, ALCOHOL and DRUGS What your kids really want and need to know about alcohol and drugs Presented by PAUL DILLON

An Information Session for Parents Tuesday 12 February 7.00pm - 8.00pm Mary Ward Centre There is a great deal of anxiety and misinformation about drugs and their use. This short, sharp, one hour presentation by one of Australia’s most respected researchers in this field will give accurate, up-to-date information on what we know about young people, alcohol and drugs in Australia. It aims to empower parents with some basic information about current trends in alcohol and other drugs by examining the questions young people really want and need answers to. Students in Years 10, 11 and 12 will have heard from Paul Dillon earlier in the day – attending this information session will assist you to have useful conversations with your teenager and to respond to queries that may be raised.
