Issue 4 / 21 March 2014
From the Head of Junior School I had the opportunity and privilege to attend the Year 4 camp at Tyalgum Ridge Resort. It was fantastic to see the children enjoying camp activities such as the flying fox, waterfall hike, low ropes course and archery. The night time activities were a great way to spend time with their mates and once again enjoy some games with friends. Thank you to the teachers Mr Buddee, Mrs Gibson, Mrs Jorgensen, Mrs Bristow, Mrs Walker and the parents who attended the camp as well. A good time was had by all and there will be stories to tell for years to come.
Picnic in the Park Thank you to the Parents and Friends committee who organized a very successful picnic in the park. St Andrews families were able to enjoy the music and fine food (well sausages are fine food in a child’s eyes) under a starry night on the Junior School oval. I am continually impressed at the talent of the students who performed throughout the night.
Kiss and Ride Just a reminder to be courteous to other families when collecting and dropping off your children in the Kiss and Ride section of the car park. It has been reported to me that there are a number of parents who are dropping off their children at the gate, rather than using the Kiss n Ride area. This causes problems for other cars and disrupts the flow of traffic. Year 5 Family Service I really enjoyed the family service that was led by the Year 5 students last Sunday. It was great to see so many students getting involved in the worship life of the congregation. They sang the songs, read bible verses and acted out simple plays added to our worship. Early Learning Centre We are doing a lot of work getting ready for the opening of the St Andrews Early Learning Centre in January 2015. We are holding an information session for all potential parents on March 27th 2014 at 6:30 pm in the MPH. If you or you know of families who have children who are approximately 2.5 – 3.5 (pre-kindy) or approximately 3.5 – 4.5 (pre-prep) years of age in 2015 and would be interested in attending our Early Learning Centre, please come along to the information session in the MPH. Cyber Safety No program my child will want to use is essential to their development, treat all programs as an added extra, a privilege. Darrin Schumacher Deputy Principal/Head of Junior School
ICAS News International Competitions & Assessments (ICAS) For Junior Schools 2014 Your child is invited to take part in the 2014 Australasian Schools Competitions. A letter to all parents can be found in the TASS Parent Lounge. To book please follow this link to TryBooking http://www.trybooking.com/77036 or via the College Website. Parents have until Friday 4 April to register and pay. PLEASE NOTE: Entries cannot be accepted after this date. COMPUTER SKILLS (Years 4-10) Tuesday 20 May, $9.20 per student SCIENCE (Years 4-12) Wednesday 4 June, $9.20 per student WRITING (Years 4-12) 16-20 June, $19.30 per student SPELLING (Years 4-7) Tuesday 17 June, $12.55 per student ENGLISH (Years 4-12) Tuesday 29 July, $9.20 per student Note that all Year 12 students will be entered for this with entry fees paid for by the College. All other years this competition is optional and you will be required to cover the cost yourself.
MATHEMATICS (AMC) (Years 7-12) Thursday 7 August, $6.35 per student MATHEMATICS (ICAS) (Years 4-12) Tuesday 12 August, $9.20 per student Note that all Year 8, 10 & 11 students will be entered for this with entry fees paid for by the College. All other years this competition is optional but highly recommended. Parents should note that prices include credit card and booking fees.
The competitions take place each year in schools throughout Australia and the South Pacific Region. They provide opportunities for all students to gain a measure of their own achievement in an external assessment situation. All students receive a Certificate and an individual Results Letter indicating which questions they answered correctly, as well as the average mark for their state. The documents are suitable for inclusion in a portfolio. The Results Letter is also useful for highlighting students’ strengths and weaknesses in Mathematics. Certificates are awarded to each year level as follows: High Distinction - to the top 1% of entrants in the state Distinction - to the next 10% of entrants in the state Credit - to the next 20% of entrants in the state Achievement - to the students who are placed in the top 20% of their Year Level at their school, but do not qualify for one of the above state Certificates Participation - to all students who do not qualify for one of the above Certificates. Medals are awarded to the top student(s) in each Year Level in each state. Schools receive valuable statistics which enable them to compare their achievements with the rest of the state. Please note that a large percentage of schools, like our
College, make all of the papers optional. This means that students who demonstrate an exceptional aptitude in a disciplinary area are generally the ones who register to compete as it is a competition. Therefore when you receive and view your child’s results, the comparison to the cohort who completed the paper is not a true indicator of where your child is ranked in Queensland.

Counselling Update This is a recent post by author and child psychologist Tina Bryson. It may seem confronting and difficult to imagine but believe me when I say this approach to your child’s inappropriate behaviour does work. I say this as a parent of a seven year old who is prone to mega-meltdowns. It requires calmness, patience and control on your part and a united front if working alongside your partner. Have a read and see what you think. At the very least next time you are confronted by challenging behaviours give it a try. “Got a young child threatening you or acting out with disrespectful behaviour? Maybe you should forget about the behaviour in that moment. Here’s some advice I shared with a mom about this topic: I think he’s talking about all kinds of calculated acts of planned aggression “next time I’m going to run you over and bury you!” and “I’m going to push you out of a tree!” in order to make himself more powerful, because I actually think he feels pretty controlled by his emotions and very vulnerable. I also sense that what he really needs is not really for me to arm you guys with “strategies”, but more to encourage a shift in how you think about him and his behaviour. Specifically, I’d encourage a shift from thinking about what the main goal is with him. I think our goal is not to control his behaviour in the moment - I know it feels like it’s our goal and responsibility to teach him that his behaviour is not acceptable or appropriate, but I think if we approach with this perspective, the way we respond to him will escalate things. Instead, I think our goal in the moment is to forget about the behaviour and focus on providing him support for emotional regulation. The behaviour will be able to be addressed more effectively once he’s calm and comforted and regulated. If our goal is to teach, then we are not effective disciplinarians when we address the behaviour when he’s in a reactive state of mind. To get him to the receptive state of mind where we can effectively address behaviour, we must first calm and connect and comfort and see things from his point of view. Nurture, nurture, nurture. We can really validate what he is feeling (something more than “I can tell you’re angry, but . . . “ which doesn’t really validate), let him tell his story, comfort, offer help and support and a safe haven to help him when he’s feeling internally chaotic and reactive. Something like (in a quiet comforting voice with an empathic facial expression and nurturing body
posture) “You’re having a hard time right now. What do you need? How can I help you? What can we do to calm down?” This does not reinforce negative behaviour. That is a common fear but it’s a misunderstanding of how behaviour works. What you are doing is reinforcing that you are a safe, predictable person who will help him when he needs help. Just like you’d comfort him (and not blame him) if he’s physically suffering, we want to comfort him (and not blame him) when he’s emotionally suffering. Once he’s back in control of his own emotions (without us trying to control him), then we can effectively talk about good choices and behaviour. He knows already what is right and wrong. He doesn’t need us to teach him that something wasn’t OK or appropriate. He already knows, but he can’t do it in the moment, so our job is to provide the emotional and relational support that allows him to do what he already knows is right.
Chaplains Chat Life at St Andrews is so varied – ranging from the Academic, to the Arts, Sport, Service and everything else in between. There is never a dull moment – a cliché, I know, but true. It is such a privilege to work in such an environment. Being involved with students working so well in the classroom, on the futsal court and making music is a great source of joy for me personally. Dare I even say it – maybe I should be paying to be here – rather than the school paying me? In amongst the good stuff though can be all manner of challenges. It seems to me that circumstance can plot against us to steal our joy and contentment away. We can misconstrue a comment made by someone and before we know it, we maybe questioning our own abilities and whether we are doing a good job. It is at this time that it is so assuring to be reminded of some ageless wisdom that I encountered over the holidays. Take a quick check for yourself – ‘What or who is the source of your joy and contentment?’ Is our personal well-
The more we address the behaviour in the moment by telling him what to do or reprimanding him or controlling his body or communicating control, punitiveness, anger, or any kind of threat/fear, the more he’ll escalate. I know there will be times where you are super comforting and he may still escalate, but I wonder if we approach this way, and then move on, instead of focusing on the bad behaviour, if these situations might not escalate into incidents. I know how unpleasant it is to deal with him when he’s reactive, but keep in mind how awful his internal chaos feels to him. He feels that he’ll consistently have someone there to nurture him through the internal storm and that he can use you as a tool to calm his inner chaos. Create safety and comfort; that’s the key.” Mardi Frost School Counselling Team
being subject to the whim of others and their treatment of us. Is it based on how many jobs we can get done or even on how well we complete a task? Bottom line is – who or what is the source of our joy and contentment? If our wellbeing rests solely on these aspects of life, then chances are, our joy can be snatched away from us. In contrast, if our joy ultimately rests in the fact that we are claimed by our loving God as His child then our joy is untouchable. We will still be subject to challenges in our life – we will still second guess ourselves but when troubled and perplexed, God speaks His truth into our lives and this restores our joy as we celebrate our position in His care. Our joy and well-being is untouchable when it is reliant on our God’s love and care. This fact places us in a position to always love others, no matter what may come. Graeme Schache Chaplain

Here are some date claimers: A Showcase of Senior Music Students Senior Music Evening Thursday 8th May 6.30pm, RBT
The group, comprised of students from Years 7 to 12, performed some great numbers from well known movies such as “Toy Story” and “Transformers”. The concert also featured some impressive soloists. The highlight of the concert came when some of our students got the opportunity to join the band up on stage and play some very interesting instruments. It was indeed a treat to be entertained by this talented group of young musicians and we are grateful for the opportunity St Columbia Anglican School gave our students to see the quality of live music performance that comes with commitment and enthusiasm for the study of music. I loved seeing the enthusiasm of all the students watching this performance, and especially loved the dance moves I saw! Miss Lauren Washington Music Teacher
Band Notes Persistence is a key concept we brandish around at schools these days. It makes sense, if you want to improve than you must persist in your efforts. As you know I am a true believer that talent is overtaken by exposure and effort. In other words a talented student will not perform as well as the student who immerses themselves in their task and who ‘persists’ with regular practice. As we enter week 8 and student’s lives are being overtaken by assessments it is time to ask how their practice is going. Run a concert at home, which can be videoed for future reference. (We will come back to it later to compare improvements). Remember it is not ‘how much’ you practice each week, but ‘how many times’ you practice that gains the greatest improvement.
Tuckshop News The new Tuckshop area is coming along quite well. We are now starting to see the framing for the walls and pipes going in. Looking forward to the finished product!

Managing kids who won’t take no for answer Kids can be very strategic at getting you to agree to what they want. But two can play at that game! Ever had a child who keeps asking for a favour or a treat over and over until they get the response they want? These kids generally use one of two strategies. They may either nag or hound you until they get an affirmative response or they seek out another adult who will give them the answer they want. Pester power wears you down! From a kid’s point of view, the first method, which is based on persistence, is generally very effective with tired parents and sole parents who are more vulnerable to this type of behaviour. “All right have the ice cream. Anything for some peace and quiet,” is a response that most people who have spent time around children are familiar with. The same applies to adolescents: “Okay, you can go to the party. Just stop nagging me about it!” Playing one parent off against the other The second method is a little more devious but very effective and usually occurs in dual parent families. You know the situation. A child’s request for a treat, favour or outing is turned down for good reason (“No Jessica you can’t have an ice cream now. Wait until after dinner”). The child then goes to the other parent (without sharing the conversation they’ve just had with you!) in the hope that he or she may well give them the positive answer they are looking for. These situations can drive parents crazy and are indicative of two people operating on different parenting planes. If it happens every now and again then it is no big deal. However, if one parent is always granting a child his or her wishes without consultation or thought about what the other parent thinks, then it’s probably time to step back and reflect on how you can both work better together. One “no” is enough Be firm with a child or young person who goes to another parent in search of a ‘yes’ after they have received a knock back. “Where did you get that ice cream from? I already said no.” “Daddy said I could have it.” “I am sorry but you should not go to Daddy after I said ‘No’.” If in doubt, defer The other technique that you can use when one parent tends
to give in more often is to agree to defer to each other whenever a child or young person asks something tricky. “Okay Jessica, I’ll just check with Dad and get back to you.” This strategy can be wearing and even artificial but it’s helpful in bringing the other parent into the picture and it also demonstrates that you are double act. It’s the smartest way to manage teens as they have a propensity to corner you into making quick decisions. The principle here is to control the timing of your responses and not be railroaded into snap decisions. Take it in turns saying “no” Most dual parents play good cop/bad cop, with one being the disciplinarian or hard-line manager and the other more the play director. That tends to be the way of families. This is wearing on the bad cop so it helps if you can swap roles (or even backbones) occasionally so that the ‘bad cop’ parent gets a break. Sole parents play both roles, which is draining. Managing children who won’t take no for an answer demands teamwork, a willingness to hold your ground and, most importantly, good communication skills. The aim is to reach a point that when you say “No, not this time” (or however you say it), your kids actually believe what you say.
