From the Principal
Dear Parents, Staff and Students,
We have been humbled by the number of messages we have received on the death of Fr Bob Barber SM. It is clear that he had a genuine and lasting impact on the life of this College. In speaking with the Marist Provincial, Fr Tony Corcoran SM, we have determined that a Requiem Mass celebrating Fr Bob’s life will be held at Woodlawn in the coming weeks. As soon as these details have been finalised, I will share them with you.
Year 12 parents will shortly be receiving a letter, under separate cover, outlining the expectations we have of our HSC students in terms of their home study habits. Parents from other year levels can expect similar correspondence as the year progresses. If we are serious about our mission here at Woodlawn, then our focus on the academic domain must be at the forefront of our educational programme. You will hear us using the term ‘academic care’ as often as we speak about ‘pastoral care’ or ‘student wellbeing’. Should you have any current concerns with your child’s level of academic engagement or would simply like to discuss developing a home study routine, please make contact with your daughter/son’s Year Coordinator, in the first instance, to start this process.
In staffing news:
- one of our College Counsellors, Ms Christina Hazell, has given birth to a healthy baby boy, Noah;
- Mr Ross Towns appeared in and won the semi-final of SBS ‘Mastermind’ which aired on Monday night;
- Mrs Janine Rebbeck has tendered her resignation from our cleaning staff to take-up a position at St Vincent’s Hospital. We thank Janine for her dedicated work over the past two years and wish her all the very best for the future.
While there have been no additional COVID-19 updates since last Newsletter, it is imperative that students who are displaying even the slightest signs of illness remain at home. A reminder that should a student become unwell during the course of a school day they will be required to be collected from the Student Services Office ASAP to minimise the risk of cross-infection.
As per NSW Health advice, people displaying symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, dry cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, headache) are advised to get tested. A student or staff member who has been unwell cannot return to school unless proof of a negative COVID-19 test has been provided. There are several local testing centres aside from your local GP, including Lismore Base Hospital and Ballina Respiratory Clinic. Visit the NSW Health website for further details.
Current Public Health Orders can also be found at: health.nsw.gov.au by clicking on COVID-19 (Case Alerts). These lists are updated daily and if you have recently travelled you must follow the mandatory isolation guidelines stringently.
Additional cleaning measures remain in place at the College for Term 1 and while social distancing is not officially required of students in schools, students are restricted to mixing within their immediate year levels only, where possible, and have also been asked to refrain from close interactions with other students and staff.
Finally, as this fortnight’s reflection, as we begin our annual Lenten journey, I include the following message which Pope Francis recently sent American President, Joe Biden for your perusal:
‘At a time when the grave crises facing our human family call for farsighted and united responses,
I pray that your decisions will be guided by a concern for building a society marked by authentic justice and freedom,
together with unfailing respect for the rights and dignity of every person,
especially the poor, the vulnerable and those who have no voice.
I likewise ask God, the source of all wisdom and truth,
to guide your efforts to foster understanding, reconciliation and peace
among the nations of the world in order to advance the universal common good’.
Please remember the family of Roy Czislowski (Year 12) in your prayers. Roy's mother, Jacinta, passed away last night after a long illness.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
From the Assistant Principal - Learning & Teaching
On Wednesday, 10 February our high achievers from the 2020 Year 12 cohort were publicly acknowledged in front of our community. We are very proud of their achievements. I addressed the College community with the following message:
‘These young adults set themselves attainable goals and worked diligently to achieve success. There were hurdles, challenges and failures throughout their Woodlawn journey. However, they not only had the humility to take correction and apply feedback, they showed great resilience to overcome all the challenges and make the necessary sacrifices to be standing here before us today. We are all proud of their achievements and in particular the young adults they have become. One of the pleasures of working in a high school is watching students enter Year 7 as children and leave Year 12 as young adults, and fine young adults you have become. You are a credit to yourselves and your families.
These students took responsibility for their own learning and developed a consistent home revision program that worked for them. They are proof that there is a direct correlation between high work ethic and high academic performance.
Excellence or achievement of any kind does not JUST HAPPEN. It comes about through dedication, goal setting and taking ownership.
All anyone can ever ask of you is to try your best and take responsibility for your actions. If you work to your potential in any area you will reach a level of attainable success. That may look quite different for each of us as we all have unique gifts and talents.’
‘The lessons of today prepare us for the challenges of tomorrow.'
Our aim is to facilitate students achieving the ‘Fullness of Life’ by attaining faith, academic and wellbeing outcomes. Woodlawn offers many opportunities across a variety areas. However, the main reason students are at school is to attain the best academic outcome possible. As I said in my address to students, this does not just happen. It takes dedication and strategic teaching from our staff and a solid partnership with parents. Students need to be held accountable for their own learning. They must not be allowed to flounder, blindly fumbling their way through high school.
As parents, it can sometimes be unclear what the expectations for students may be. Here is a simple guide. The approximate number of minutes per night that a student should spend on revising and completing set homework should be calculated by the year they are in and then add a zero. For example, a Year 9 student should be completing 90 minutes of nightly school work with a combination of personal revision and set homework. This simple formula will enable students to get into a steady home revision pattern that will serve them well when they enter the Senior HSC year. It will make them accountable for their own performance. There is a direct correlation between home revision and sound academic performance. Quality teaching and hard work in class, supported by a solid home revision program is essential for academic success.

Head Heart Hands
“Lent comes providentially to reawaken us, to shake us from our Lethargy.”
This week we began the season of Lent with a number of Liturgies that were designed to reflect the needs of the different Year Groups. The Lenten message is one of Redemption and Hope. Our students were encouraged to reflect on their faith, their lives and their relationships. I have shared one of the prayers from our Liturgy:
'Lord, as we enter the desert of Lent, help us to embrace a spirit of surrender. Help us to break away from that which ties us to this world, so that we can fully become the saints you created us to be. Give us the strength to order our lives with You at the centre, and to set aside our desires for worldly power or wealth. Bless us with eternal life and unite us with Christ your Son. Amen.'
During Lent we are called to Action to serve our communities, to repair relationships and to stand in solidarity with the poor. Our Heart of Compassion Fundraising will begin next week. Over the next five weeks, Home Groups will support the essential work of Caritas by purchasing Hearts of Hope. This campaign is supplemented with reflections, prayers and weekly stories about people whose lives are changed due to various Caritas programs. Please support this campaign generously by donating money for these hearts. Last year we raised over $5000 and we are hoping to do the same this year.
Our Opening College Mass was celebrated in Week 3. We were blessed to celebrate this occasion with Bishop Gregory and Fr Bing. The Bishop spoke passionately about how we, as individuals, need to be introspective and ask ourselves what type of person we wish to be. His challenge was ‘to be brave and aim for something in life …. It’s what you do that you become the kind of person you want to be! Here at Woodlawn, we foster in students the desire to be people of integrity and this was affirmed by the Bishop: 'It's your actions and what is in your heart that is the most important indicator of the type of person you are.’ This is very much in line with the idea that we are human beings and that we should strive to become beings who are selfless.
We also welcomed our Year 7 families this week, to join us for a Liturgy and an opportunity to meet staff and familiarise themselves with the College. We were truly blessed to bring together staff, school leaders and our Year 7s. With the idea of relationships firmly in our messaging, we shared reflections, prayers and symbolic moments. We learnt of the hopes and dreams of our young people and assured families ‘not to be afraid and we are with them’.
This year the Mission team is working with the Teaching and Learning Team to assist students in goal setting and reflection on their learning. With the student at the heart of all we do, we have revised the Responsibility for Learning Matrix (RFL). In Weeks 5 and 9 of each term, students and families receive feedback about individuals' learning and classroom behaviour. Each teacher rates their students on their ability to follow instructions, their work ethic, the respect they show each other and our staff, their participation and their readiness to learn. This process will give us a snapshot of where students are placed in their learning. Those students who are struggling in any of these areas will be identified and I will work with the team to help them set goals, with an improvement agenda at the forefront of these goals. Students who are consistently exceeding expectations in these areas will receive Commendation Certificates that will enable them to work towards the attainment of Silver Awards and ultimately Silver Badges. This process will be trialled in Term 1 with a review taking place in Week 10. Please access your student's RFL through the relevant portal. These can be viewed in Week 6.
We are looking forward to the following:
Leadership Speeches: Base Classes for Years 8-10 (followed by SRC elections).
Youth Ministry Experience ( INCITARE)
Clean-Up Australia Day
International Women's Day
LEAD Conference (Year 11 self nominating)
TRANSITUS. Spirituality camp for Year 7 students. This is self nominating.
Remember: If you can be anything, Be Kind.
Assistant Principal - Mission
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
As is always the case, the school year has begun at a frantic pace. We have had the Opening School Mass and High Achievers' Assembly, the Swimming Carnival and the Year 7 Meet and Greet in the first few weeks. This is in addition to the regular classroom activities that have taken place. No wonder some of our young people are feeling tired….
For some students, the return to school can be challenging. It is important to remind high school students about maintaining their physical health. This includes the importance of engaging in regular exercise (60 minutes or more of moderate to vigorous physical activity each day), eating nutritious food from a variety of sources, getting enough sleep each night (between eight and ten hours) and engaging in no more than two hours per day of screen-based activity for entertainment. Whilst achieving these goals can be challenging, a less than optimal physical health is going to have a negative impact on other aspects of wellbeing.
Over the next two weeks in Pastoral Care lessons, Year 7 are going to complete a survey facilitated by reachout.com and supported by the Catholic Schools Office. The data gathered will provide us with a snapshot of information about each student. We will find out about their interests, aspirations and some general details about them. All of this will help us to better understand each student and enable us to support them in their transition to high school.
The mental health of our young people is of paramount importance.
Headspace National is hosting free mental health education sessions for parents and carers of young people. These are a series of online sessions that can be accessed here:
Year 12 are fortunate to be attending their Senior Retreat next week. This is an opportunity for them to further their relationships within the year group as well as to think about their own personal journey - both on a spiritual level and considering life post-school. Upon their return from Retreat there is one week of classes before the Half Yearly Examinations. There are many students who will find this week challenging. Here is a list of ways that parents can support their students during this time. In addition, it is important that the students spend quality time in revision. There are many strategies that can be implemented - here are some suggestions. Teachers will have been supporting students in their classes with hints and suggestions particular to each subject. One element that is essential is that students need to commit content to memory and complete practice questions as part of their revision program. These responses should be submitted to the teacher for feedback so that improvements can be made. We all acknowledge that examinations can be stressful for any number of reasons. Here is some general information about examination stressors and some suggestions for coping with this stress.
Leader of Student Welfare
Around the Grounds
Year 12 CAFS have been looking at 'Youth' as part of their Groups in Context Core Unit. The students were asked to come up with different types of sub-groups that exist for young people and to write this on a palm card. Examples included groups such as goths, footies, eshays, lads, nerds. etc. Two palm cards were then drawn at random. The class was split into two groups with the design brief to create an outfit that represented the group on the card that was pulled. Here is the outcome of what the groups created: the 'footies' and the 'country folk'.
Leader of PDHPE
From the High Potential Learning Coordinator
St John’s College embraces an holistic approach to the recognition of giftedness/high potential in students and is committed to providing students with an education that is in harmony with their particular needs and abilities.
‘Although a number of different definitions have been proposed over the years, there is no universally accepted definition of students who would be identified as having particular gifts or talents. However, a shared understanding of giftedness is important in order to address their needs. In Australia today, Gagné’s model provides the most generally accepted definition of both giftedness and talent’.
Source: Australian Curriculum
The College refers to Gagne’s model. According to the model, gifted students are those whose potential is distinctly above average in one or more of the following domains of human ability:
As giftedness is dynamic, rather than static, identification needs to occur over time. The College uses a variety of objective (ability-testing and student performance) and subjective (parent nomination, teacher nomination, peer nomination, self-nomination) to identify high potential learners. Should you identify your child as needing extension in certain learning areas, please don’t hesitate to contact me via email.
