COORDINATING PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE THOUGHTFULNESS One of the problems facing western culture is the emphasis on ‘me’ and on ‘self’, on acquiring all we can and seeing success in terms of material possessions. In a happy and healthy community the emphasis needs to be on helping others and forming good relationships. Little acts of thoughtfulness such as the following are worth considering:             

Call an old friend just to say ‘hi’ or send them a copy of an old photograph with a note; Hold a door open for a stranger; Compliment someone on his or her appearance; Let someone know how much you miss them; Leave a thank you note for the cleaner; Recommend a good book or article to a friend or colleague; Give blood; Offer to baby-sit for a friend who just needs a break; Ask to see a manager or a chef just to say ‘thank you’; Welcome new neighbours; Ask about others’ children; Check in on an older person just to see if they’re okay; and Forgive someone when they apologise.

Jesus is the best role model when it comes to looking out for others. He cured the sick, restored sight to the blind, forgave the sinners, welcomed the children, washed the feet of his disciples and much more. The challenge is for us to find opportunities to help others and in doing so we bring joy to them and build happiness within our families, schools and communities. Mr Jim O’Brien Coordinating Principal

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Parent Committee, CCSP NSW On behalf of the College Community I would like to congratulate Ms Jackie Howard who has been nominated by the Lismore Diocese to stand on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Parent Committee (Council of Catholic School Parents NSW/ACT). A nomination to be part of such an association is a strong recognition of Jackie’s service to St Joseph’s Regional College’s Aboriginal students. The Committee: 

allows for meaningful Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander parents and carers representation at state level.  provides a network and forum for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander parent leaders.  discusses issues and concerns specific to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education at State and Federal levels and monitor state and federal policy.  develops resources for Catholic school communities to support Reconciliation, to celebrate partnership and to support the active engagement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities in the learning of their children. On behalf of the St Joseph’s Regional College, I wish Jackie all the very best in her nomination and thank her for the wonderful work she does as a part of our vibrant community.

Year 12 Seminars and Sunday Study Sessions This week Year 12 commenced a program of HSC Seminars with the view of moving forward in their preparation for the Higher School Certificate. I would like to particularly thank Year 12 Coordinator, Ms Heidi Flanagan, Leader of Pedagogy, Mr Chris Delaney, Leader of Curriculum, Mr Ian Lutton, Leaders of Key Learning Areas and staff for the wonderful program that has been prepared for our students. Indeed, our Year 12s should feel much supported by the College’s staff going that “extra mile” for them. I would also commend to you, Mr Lutton’s enabling Year 12 students to access the College Library on Sundays for the remainder of the term. These are all great initiatives that invariably reflect the generosity and spirit of St Joseph’s Regional College staff. Finally, last Monday our Year 9 students attended a mass and were also involved in different forms of community service. By all accounts, our students participated in the day in a manner that reflects our gospel values. Below I commend to you a letter received from Fr James our College Chaplain. Dear Jim, Nora, Helen and Frank, I would like to express my gratitude to each of you for the wonderful Year 9 Mass this morning. The sense of community and joyful prayerfulness of the students was truly inspiring. From the opening song-Because You Loved Me- which was sung by all present with great enthusiasm, the atmosphere was set for a very positive day. It was particularly moving to hear the reflections on the theme of Family that were given by the students at the end of Mass. These students are to be congratulated for what they shared with us and the manner in which it was shared. To each of you, along with Sharon, Debbie, Wendy, Jasmine and all the staff- thank you for all your efforts in making the Mass such a success! Unfortunately due to other commitments here I was not able to join Year 9 after their morning tea. From what I heard, this would have been a great experience with many various community service initiatives. For your interest, I am away Tuesday and Wednesday with a group of St Pauls/MacKillop students, however can be contacted by phone should there be anything you would like to discuss re Year 10 Mass on Thursday. Wishing you a great week, Fr James Assistant Principal Appraisal Dear Parents During Term 3 on Tuesday, 3rd September, Cath Eichmann, St Joseph’s Regional College Assistant Principal will be involved in an assistant principal appraisal process as part of her contract renewal conditions with the Catholic Schools Office. The appraisal process seeks information from a variety of people associated with the parish school. The process aims to highlight the positive aspects of the assistant principal’s performance and identify areas for further development. A timeline will be constructed to suit the needs of the parish school community. A panel consisting of a diocesan parish school principal, a fellow assistant principal and an education consultant from the Catholic Schools Office will conduct the appraisal.

The full assistant principal appraisal process involves:

 a staff survey and staff interviews  an interview with the principal  an interview with the parish priest  interviews with any parents who wish to present  a formal interview with the assistant principal by the panel  a self-appraisal report completed by the assistant principal Any parents who wish to make contact with the panel are welcome to do so by contacting Tonia Flanagan (02 6622 0422) before the appraisal date. Thank you for your support of the parish school’s leadership team. Dirk Botha Assistant Director, Lismore Catholic Schools Office

God Bless Jim Dempsey Principal

A message from School Fees Administration, Parish Admin Centre SCHOOL FEES HAVE YOU RECEIVED YOUR SCHOOL FEE STATEMENT? We believe that communication between the Parish and families is very important, to ensure that we are aware of individual circumstances and are alerted to any possible errors with accounts. Parish Administration posted almost 2000 statements to families last week. Did you receive yours? Many families have already contacted us about their accounts. Here are some of the questions they’ve asked. I’m responsible for part of an account. Why does the statement show more than my share? Our systems do not allow for split accounts. Full fees and the building fund are charged on each account. It is then up to families who have split fee arrangements to ensure each person is paying their share. We can help by:  Ensuring the account is sent to both parties  Reconciling the account if there is a dispute between parties Do I need to pay the amount owing by 23 August 2013? Some families have chosen to pay their school fees in 3 equal instalments. For these families, their final instalment is due on 23 August 2013. If you have an agreed payment arrangement, pay via Direct Debit, Centrepay or Salary sacrifice, your fees are spread over the entire year. I am struggling financially. Is it possible to pay a reduced fee? Absolutely! Our Fee Assistance Program assesses your current income levels while taking into account your employment situation and the number of children in your family, relative to the rest of the population. This ensures that each family pays a fee that is affordable. However, you MUST get in touch with Parish Admin as soon as possible to make use of this option. Why must my account balance be NIL by the end of the year? Each year our schools budget the amount they will need to provide the best possible resources and staff to ensure your children receive the excellent education for which the St Agnes’ Parish schools are known. These fees are “topped up” by almost $ ¾ million by the Parish, to help keep school fees as low as possible for families. Any fees budgeted and not collected result in the schools having to cut their budgets by that amount each year. What happens if I don’t clear my account by the end of the year? If you think this will apply to you, PLEASE call us to discuss your situation in confidence. Unfortunately where families have not contacted us in advance, the balance remaining will be handed to our Debt Collection Agent for collection in full. How do we contact you? Ring Emma or Chrissie on 6588 7444, email us at with your request, or make an appointment to see Trudi at 49 Hay Street, Port Macquarie. John McQueen Parish Director Education

2013 Diocesan Athletics Report Last Friday, 16th of August SJRC Athletics Squad travelled to Coffs Harbour to compete at the Diocesan Athletics Carnival. Coffs Harbour turned on a perfect day for us. The students were all very keen to show their talents on the track and in the field. Any student who placed first in their event (1st and 2nd in the 100m, 200m & 400m) qualified for the NSWCCC Carnival to be held at Homebush in Sydney on the 13th September. Students who placed in the top 4 in their events are listed on the previous page. Congratulations to all squad members as we took out second in the overall points tally Thank you to the staff who travelled with the team: Mr Alex Gillman, Mr Michael Morson, Mrs Leanne Tinsey and Mrs Janine Handley. Mr Michael Cannon Athletics Coach St. Joseph’s Regional College Rowing News Last Sunday, 18th August, four students from St Joseph’s Regional College participated for the first time in a 26 kilometre Three Rivers marathon. Bryce Gardner teamed up with Mary Shelley and Lilly Howard with Stacey Coombes in double sculls to complete the course from Telegraph Point to Port Macquarie Rowing Club in less than two hours. It was a great achievement for the students to navigate down a river with bends, sand bars and fallen trees from the recent floods. I give them ten out of ten for their effort well done. Ron Batt the National Coach Education and Development Officer of Rowing Australia will be visiting our club on Saturday, 31st August. The visit is to observe our rowing program in operation. We are asking as many students as possible to be at Rocks Ferry in Wauchope. Even if you are not a rower, turn up and try our newest sport. Alan McCartney, Head Rowing Coach WALKATHON- Mini Marathon - For those students who wish to run the Walkathon in our mini-marathon, are asked to complete the entry form which can be found on our College website or follow the link is below. hUME5ZUkpoamlMTXc6MQ#gid=0
