Week 3, Term 3 every year is Education week, where we celebrate the contribution of public

education to our community. Elizabeth Macarthur had so any amazing events to fit into Education Week that we had to make it education month. Some of the events we enjoyed:

 Community of Schools 2567 Showcase. An amazing evening where we celebrated the performing arts with our feeder primary school. Harrington Park Primary, Narellan Primary and Narellan Vale primary.

 Public school ambassador of the year awards ceremony where Mikalya Sawyers was awarded our public school ambassador in ceremony at Revesby workers club.

 HSC Dance, Drama, Music and Art night. These nights showcased the outstanding practical performance pieces of our Year 12 students for the HSC.

 Relieving Director for Public Schools Macarthur, Scott Davidson, toured the school to view lessons and meet the executive. It is great to see our Regional Director being so hands on with the kids and looking at their work in the classrooms. He was very impressed with the standard of work.

 Hosted Moorebank High School and Prairiewood High School in Instructional Rounds. Yet again Elizabeth Macarthur was leading the way with professional reflection and professional training. Meagan Morrissey trained 15 staff across the three schools to observe an element of practice in classrooms and analyse the work of teachers across the school. This is the true strength of public education where as a network we can support each other to constantly improve our practice to ensure that we are delivering the best quality education to students across the state.

 University of Western Sydney Art Exhibition. The University has hung some our students work at Milperra campus.We have also had works hung at Mount Annan Central Shopping Centre where we won the $8000 prize. The community support in putting their dockets into the barrel helped us achieve this target and this money will go to buying new textbooks and resurfacing the basketball courts.

Parent Teacher Nights in Week 2 and 3. This has been the 3rd Parent Teacher Night this  year we have run to ensure that parents are given the opportunity to meet their child’s teachers and discuss any issues with their child’s progress. These have been highly successful events that ensure that we are working together to support student progress.

HSC I would like to take this opportunity to thank many staff who have worked long hours after school and on weekends and during the last two holidays breaks to work with students on their major HSC works. As I write this on the weekend, teachers from the Technology and Applied Studies Faculty (TAS) - Industrial Arts and Life Technology have students in classrooms completing their major works.

I want to thank all the staff who have generously given their time and to all the parents who have made dashes to Bunnings and Spotlight and have been picking up kids late at night. After the major works are marked it is now time to knuckle down and study for the written exams. Students should be studying 3-4 hours per day at the moment in Year 12. Tuesday afternoons we run a study centre for seniors from 12.40-3.10pm. If Year 12 have part time jobs, it is time to take a break from those shifts until after the HSC exams. Students need to be focusing all their energies on the HSC exams which are only 7 weeks away.

Carnival – 6th September 3pm-10pm This is our biggest fundraising event of the year. Mrs Kim Hope and the P&C Committee are organising the Carnival on the 6th September. This will be a great night for students, parents and the local community to enjoy. There will be carnival rides such as the dodgems and double ranger and tea cups. There will be a side show alley with games and lots of stalls with food and a variety of local stall holders. There will also be fireworks on Elizabeth Park around 9pm. The P&C Committee will be preselling ride arm bands for $30 that allows kids 10 rides. This is a considerable saving as some rides are $3 but others are $8. Pre-sold tickets mean that every ride will only cost you $3. P&C will be preselling armbands on August 29th before school and during the lunch breaks. We hope we can see all parents and students pop in and enjoy the carnival.

Student medical forms During Terms 3 and 4 we will be updating our medical records systems to ensure we have the most up-to-date information on your child‘s health.

If you have a child with a medical condition you will receive a copy of the new forms in the mail and will need to fill them out and return them to us as soon as you can.

The good news is we have already started collecting some of this information, which means less for you to do.

The new forms will help us collect your child‘s important medical information and the introduction of new systems will mean we'll be able to better manage the daily and emergency health needs of your child.

We appreciate your support as we start collecting the information, and if you have any questions please call the office on 4646 1899.

Mrs Edmunds School Administrative Manager YEAR 8 Welcome back to Term 3, hope you all enjoyed the break.

Another busy term for Year 8 students and parents. It was lovely to see so many of you at the Parent Teacher interviews at the beginning of the term. I received some really positive feedback from parents and teachers about the change in classes and students are happy and working hard.

Well done to the Year 8 boys who competed in the rugby league gala day earlier this term.

Mr Meads spoke very highly of your behaviour and efforts.

This term Year 8 will be completing the final component of the High Resolves Program which is Surrounding Justice. This will be taking place on the 29th and 30th August in the school hall. I received some excellent feedback from the presenter of the program who was happy with student behaviour and involvement in the program.

I encourage all students to develop a regular study plan to prepare them for Yearly examinations that are coming up in Term 4. Regular revision of class notes and practising writing extended response to questions will improve your results and confidence in examinations.

Don’t forget to check the Elizabeth Macarthur High School website for the school calendar (upcoming events), assessment schedules in eDiary, Moodle and other important information.

Hope you have an enjoyable Term 3.

Miss Pilley Year 8 Advisor YEAR 9 This term is fairly quiet for Year 9 with the absence of formal examinations. Hopefully, they are taking advantage of the downtime to focus on their submitted assessments and setting up a revision routine in preparation for Yearly examinations next term. Year 9 students will commence their ROSA next year and the study habits they form this year will determine how they perform in this stage of their schooling Uniform has been quite good this term. However, we take this opportunity to remind students and guardians that Year 9 is not to be wearing the blue senior jumper. Many students are wearing non-uniform jumpers, saying they are waiting to buy the blue senior jumper for next year. Year 10 students are not seniors, and current Year 9 students will be expected to wear the red junior jumper until the end of next year.

Fast forward students were presented with certificates at assembly this week, and also participated in a workshop to build the goal-setting skills. Having a vision for the future, and having small, achievable goals is important in achieving post-school success and the Fast Forward students got a chance to seriously consider their post-school goals. On September 6th (Friday, Week 8), the Fast Forward students will be participating in a University day to experience a day in the life of a University student. It is a great opportunity for students to see a University campus and compare the responsibilities of a University student to their own.

We’d like to finish off with a feel-good story and congratulate Joshua Beezem and Morgan Londero for their honesty. The boys found a mobile phone on the playground and took it to the office, hoping to have it returned to the owner. Well done boys!

Ms Rico and Ms Fernandez Year 9 Advisors YEAR 10 Congratulations to Samantha Harkness in her efforts in the South Western Sydney Regional Public Speaking competition. Both her and Joshua Costlow presented outstanding speeches on the day. Good luck to Josh, who is competing on August 14 in the semi-final.

Good luck to Katie Dickey and Payton Davis who are participating in the “Connecting Women’s Project” this term at Currans Hill. The girls will be working one-on-one with contemporary artists to develop life skills through art therapy.
