School Board

Our school board met on Wednesday 5th June with the main focus of examining information about the schools behaviour data and programs that support school behaviour programs such as Positive Behaviour Schools.

The discussions around our data was very interesting and it was great to see the parent and community member’s perspective.

At the next board meeting in term three, it was agreed that we would focus on our indigenous programs, hoping to have a presentation from the aboriginal girls (STARS) and boys academy (Clontarf). We will look specifically at our Reconciliation Action Plan and what strategies will we adopt as a focus for 2025.

The board always brings a broader perspective about how we are tracking as a school and we really appreciate their breadth of knowledge.

Clontarf

Sporting Industry Camp

The Academy hosted the second camp of the term for eligible year 9-11 fellas, attending the Sporting Industry Camp based in Perth. All activities on the camp revolved around the sporting industry, an employment visit to Collier Golf Club, tour of the West Coast Eagles, playing a basketball match vs Belmont and a tour of Optus Stadium. Highlights of the trip included a photo with Liam Ryan, beating Belmont in basketball and getting a photo of Harley Reid’s locker.  The boys upheld the Clontarf values at all times and had a fantastic time.

Our final camp for the term will be for year 7/8 boys and we are looking forward to giving them a great Clontarf experience.

Reconciliation Walk

The Reconciliation Day walk is an extremely important day in our academy’s calendar and we were very proud to take a large group of fellas to participate in this walk along with staff member Cammy Bennell playing the didgeridoo during a performance. We also included a worksite tour to valued partner Iluka and boys were shown through their Capel site and had a presentation from Iluka staff which included former student Brandan Yarran.

During week 9 we will be hosting SWAMS for Day 2 of our Health Checks for 2024. The first day with SWAMS was a great success getting 20 boys to conduct a full health check with a doctor and nurse.

Clontarf Superstar of the Month

James Oakley has started term two really well, attending every day at school as well as every morning training so far. He represented the academy at the ANZAC Day Ceremony, attended the sporting industry camp and currently leads our points for the Harlem Globetrotters Trip in Week 10.

Great work James!


Follow the Dream

Reconciliation Walk

Students from Clontarf, STARS and several non-indigenous students participated in the Reconciliation Walk on Friday 31 May, commencing from Koombana Bay through to the Graham Bricknell Shelter. At the Graham Bricknell Shelter the students experienced cultural dance, music and listened to the stories from our local Elders and Aboriginal Community Members, about the importance of supporting one another and coming together as a community, inclusive of indigenous and non–indigenous peoples. The Reconciliation Walk was a culmination of Reconciliation Week, which is book ended by two significant events, the 1967 Referendum on 27 May and Mabo Decision 1992, 3 June.

FTD Student - Caleb Holzapfel

Hi, I am Caleb Holzapfel a year 12 student who has been in the Follow the Dream program for six years, commencing in year 7. I am committed to the program as it assists me in learning and passing school with the support of my teachers. Through the program I have attended excursions to gain a better understanding of university entrance and courses, and also industry and employment opportunities. I have also applied and been successful in participating in the Curtin University Engineering camp, which was completely funded and a great experience. Also, having the tutors support me through this, I have developed some strong long lasting relationships with the teachers.

Thanks Caleb

Metalwork - Tradesmen Dads Making a Difference in Our Workshops

We're excited to share an inspiring story from our school's workshops.

Over the past two Fridays, we've had the pleasure of welcoming Dwayne Rogers, a skilled machinist from Bunbury Engineering Network and proud parent of Wade Rogers from year 9, to our metalwork room.

Dwayne, along with his former apprentice, Justin from Geographe Engineering, has generously volunteered his time to teach our teachers the intricacies of lathe operation and other essential metalwork skills. Their expertise has also revived our CNC lathe, which is on its way to being fully functional after years of dormancy.

Dwayne, a graduate of Newton Moore SHS in the 1980s, credits his career success to the example and guidance he received from our workshop teachers. His stories, including a humorous anecdote about his first day at school, have indicated how much times have changed, but also how many things stay the same. Now more than ever, there is a demand for skilled tradesmen and capable apprentices.

Both he and Justin have highlighted the current challenges in finding apprentices in their field and have suggested work placement opportunities for students demonstrating a keen interest and aptitude in the trade.

In collaboration with our VET Coordinator, Tish Kneuker, we are exploring ways to support students who excel in practical subjects but may face challenges in other academic areas. Our goal is to create meaningful connections between students' talents and potential career paths, while also fostering the development of professional attributes that are highly valued by employers.

We look forward to Dwayne and Justin's continued involvement and are grateful for their contribution to our school community.

If you, or somebody you know, has valuable practical skills they would be willing to share, please contact Jack Hunter Jack.hunter@education.wa.edu.au or Tish Kneuker for a discussion on how you can make a difference in our school.

Examples of such skills might include: wood turning, carpentry, sheet metal, jewellery, welding, casting, etc.

Year 10s Life Choice Incursion

On Thursday 23rd May, The Life Choice foundation presented to the year 10 students in the Performing Arts Centre.  The presenter was a professional racing car driver, Andrew "Fishtail" Fisher. Andrew has raced at the pinnacle of Australian motor sport in V8 Super Cars, V8 Utes, Porsches and is currently racing an SLR5000 in the Touring Car Masters Series, winning many races over the years.

Andrew has now commenced motivational speaking and has spoken to over 350,000 high school students and thousands of inmates in gaols and detention centres across the country about being courageous in the face of difficulty.

Andrew challenged students to STOP & THINK through the consequences of important life choices, encouraging them to choose the path that is ‘right’ for them. His final message to the students was "It's Your Life, It's Up To You To Make It Count!".

This talk was very inspiring and enjoyed by all that attended.

Staying safe on social media

The internet can be a positive space that helps us connect with others and discover information. However, just like our day-to-day activities in the real world, what we do on the internet carries some level of risk, and not everybody you meet online has good intentions.

Don’t let these users ruin your experience, make sure you do what you can to stay safe online.

These are some tips to keep yourself safe online:

Set your accounts to private

Think carefully about what you post online and who you want to see it. Consider setting your profiles to friends and followers only.

Remember anything you post can be shared

Even with strong privacy settings in place, it is important that you remember that what you post online is never really private and can be shared. Posts also stay around on the internet long into the future. It is therefore important that you always think before you post.

Be choosy about friends and followers

Remember that not everyone who requests to follow you has friendly intentions in mind. Depending on the information you have visible on your profile, someone who friends or follows you might know your contact info, general location, age, and other data. This is why you want to think twice before accepting a request or invitation to connect from just anyone. Many social media networks have tools that allow you to manage the info you share with friends in different groups. If you’re trying to get your influencer hustle going, create an open profile or fan page that encourages broad participation but limits personal information. Use your personal profile to connect with your real friends – typically ones you know in real life.

Block anyone who bothers you

All social media sites allow you to block people who you don't want accessing your account. It is not permanent and they won't be notified. You may also have the option of muting someone so they don't know you can no longer see their posts. 

Report trolling

All social media platforms have rules and allow you to report abusive comments.

Dealing with fake accounts and impersonation

If someone has set up a fake social media account in your name, or a friend’s name, you can report the fake account directly to the service or platform that hosts it.

Bullying in Schools

In order to be successful in school and in life, kids need to feel safe both physically and emotionally.

It is essential that students are supported and provided a safe space in which to learn.

What can parents/carers do?

  • Be aware of signs of distress in your child, e.g., unwillingness to attend school, a pattern of illness, missing equipment, requests for extra money, damaged equipment or clothing.
  • Inform the school of any cases of suspected bullying even if your child is not directly involved or affected.
  • Take an active interest in your child’s social life and acquaintances, online and offline.
  • Assist your child to discuss any incidence of bullying with the school. If possible, allow your child to report and deal with the situation. Your child can gain respect and confidence through taking the initiative and dealing with the problem without direct parental involvement.
  • Discourage any planned retaliation, either physical or verbal, by discussing positive strategies they can use.
  • Do not deal directly with the other children or their parents/carers but work through and with the school.

Guidance for Students:

What can I do if I’m being bullied?

  • Tell the student who is bullying to stop. State quite clearly that the behaviour is against school values/rules and is not okay.
  • Seek help. Talk about it with someone you trust. Tell a teacher or other adult at school. Feel confident that an incident can be solved.
  • Tell your family.
  • Take a friend with you if you are worried to tell someone by yourself.
  • Do not retaliate.
  • If you are experiencing bullying on the way to or from school, tell someone and walk home with friend.

What can I do if I see someone being bullied?

  • Don’t be a bystander. Seek help. Fetch a staff member who can assist.
  • Create an excuse for either student to leave the situation. Say something like “The teacher/friend is asking for you.” And guide them away.
  • Support the student who was targeted by following up with them in a private conversation. Acknowledge that you saw what happened, ask them if they are okay, and ask how you can help.
  • Tell someone.

Together we can support our students and help put an end to bullying.

Newton Moore SHS is committed to maintaining a safe environment for learning. Bullying in our school is not tolerated, and reports are taken seriously.

Support for students is available at school with students encouraged to reach out to teachers, Student Services staff, and Deputies to report incidences and seek assistance.

Additional support is available via the following links:

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)

At Newton Moore SHS we acknowledge the students that make positive choices. This is part of our commitment to creating a school culture where students feel supported and are recognised for doing the right thing.

Students receive PBS points for recognition of these behaviours, and these can be used at our school PBS shop. Below are some of the items on offer.

The top five-point earners for each year group will receive a reward at the end of term so keep an eye out for more information on this.

Attendance

With the end of term two fast approaching, marking the halfway point of the educational year, there is no doubt that the year is flying by at a fast rate. Combined with winter being upon us, this is often the time of the year when we, as parents, need to dig deep into our toolkit of strengths, to ensure that despite the wind and rain, our students still get to school to make the most of their education.

What You Can Do?

If you need support with your child’s attendance please do not hesitate to contact the Attendance Officer.

Today At School Your Child Learnt Something New That Will Help Them Learn More Tomorrow.

Parents/guardians are responsible for informing the school if a child will not be attending on any day.

Upper School Deputy Principals’ Update

I am sure, as we draw to the end of another semester, we can all agree that it has flown by and it is important to keep persevering to the very end. For our year 12’s, that is closer than they might think, having only one more term left of high school before heading off into the workforce or further studies. I encourage all our year 12’s to make the most of the time left, you have come this far, finish with a bang!

It has been a big term, with OLNA, Externally Set Tasks, and exams, I am sure all our upper school students are looking forward to a relaxing holiday.

Before holidays, we have a few weeks to keep pushing through, a reminder that the academic calendar will continue right up to the last day of term. Attendance is crucial at this point as a lot of what is covered in class over the last weeks will be continued in semester two.

Week 10 (17 – 21 June) our year 10’s will be involved in a careers week, a great opportunity for students to really explore their career options and the pathways that are available to them. It will be run during normal curriculum time and will give the students a great insight into the workforce and available options.

Week 11 (24-28 June) Country Week and Year 10 work experience are running. We wish our Country Week students the best of luck and remind our year 10’s on work experience to make the most of the work opportunity and really embrace their chosen work place.

OLNA Year 11 and 12

The first opportunity for year 11 and 12’s to sit OLNA will be from the 10th to 21st June 2024. We remind students to access all resources provided by the school to prepare adequately, including the OLNA Support Website www.olna.com.au.

Lower School Deputy Principals’ Update

As we come to the end of another term, it is important not to slow down now. Academics and learning will continue until 15:00 0n the 28th June. The learning from this term will be carried over to next term, so it is important to continue to strive for excellence.

As always our school provides a rich mix of opportunities for our students and in the coming weeks, we have a number of excursions happening. Our year 7 and 8’s are competing at the Clontarf Coodanup Basketball tournament and the year 9’s will be part of the Mind Flight Career taster program. We have our Shining Knight, Aspiring Attendees and PBS reward events all happening in week 11.

To all our students, parent, carers, and staff, we wish you a safe holiday and look forward to an exciting semester two.

Here are some images from events that have taken place since the last Schoolzine.

Term 2 is always a busy term! This is the time when teachers are consolidating their assessment of student’s achievements to gauge semester one progress. On the 18th June 2024 from 2.00 -5.30pm a second parent night will be held. Parents are encouraged to attend the night by booking appointments online and have the option to pick up your child’s first semester report. We really value the opportunity to speak to as many parents as possible and look forward to seeing you on the night to discuss your child’s academic progress.

I would like to wish all members of our 2024 Country Week team in week 11 best of luck at this year’s Country Week. The teams and coaches are to be congratulated for their commitment and effort as there is a lot of work that goes into preparing for Country Week. We wish them the best of luck. A special shout out to Mr Hayward and Mr Towers, our joint Country Week coordinators, we are truly thankful for the extra effort they have put in, often outside of school time, to make this happen.

Our upper school deputy has started counselling year 10 students in selecting subjects for year 11. I would like to thank all parents and students for their support and attendance at these special interviews. Parents are encouraged to read the subject information book located on the Downloads and Links page at our school website Senior School Handbook 2025 for further information.

As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, we are reminded of the crucial role that online safety plays in the lives of our young people. The website for the eSafety Commissioner found at:

Online safety | eSafety Commissioner is a trusted and safe website to access for advice, support and resources and I encourage you to explore it. Another useful website found at Take It Down helps to remove explicit photos or videos that children may have shared online.

Please note that our Annual Report 2023 is now complete and I encourage all parents to read a copy of the report, available on the Downloads and Links page on the school’s web page. I extend my gratitude to staff and learning areas for providing information about their 2023 highlights.

Please stay safe over the holidays and we look forward to all students coming back ready to learn in term three.

At each Board Meeting we have students report back about priorities and strategies they would like to see happen to support what they are doing in terms of leading programs and projects in the school.

The school board plays a pivotal role about guiding what and where we are going in the future and will be spending a considerable amount of time in Semester 2 looking at priorities and directions which will be the focus of our new business plan.

MASH

Adam Road Winter Carnival

Newton Moore prides itself on giving back to the primary school carnivals from where our students came from. The school’s MASH (Moore Academy of Sport and Health) program is designed to allow this to happen.

Last week approximately 20 MASH students attended the Adam Road Winter Carnival at Hay Park. We provided umpires, referees, and coaches to cover AFL, Netball, Hockey, and Soccer. It was great to receive positive feedback from parents, spectators, and teachers on how our MASH students conducted themselves and helped organise the day.

Follow the Dream

Welcome Jamie Rankin, Follow the Dream Tutor.

“I have been tutoring with the Follow The Dream Program since 2014. I am passionate about the benefits of the program for our indigenous students. The students come to the sessions with a purpose and we as tutors can contribute to their educational, social, and emotional needs and provide another layer of support outside of the classroom, in a safe and caring environment and in knowing that we teachers/tutors are making a difference through the rapport and relationships that are built.”

National Sorry Day & Reconciliation Week

The dates for National Reconciliation Week 27th  May to 3rd of June commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.

Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds, and actions of all Australians as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation, and in playing our part we collectively build relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures, and futures.

The National Reconciliation Week theme for 2024, Now More Than Ever, is a reminder to all of us that no matter what, the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will —and must —continue.

We will be inviting Newton Moore SHS students to participate in the Bunbury Walk for Reconciliation on the 31st of May. The usual rules for excursions will apply. Students must not have lost their good standing to attend.

Mother’s Day Morning Tea

The Newton Moore Stars Foundation welcomed Mums, Aunts, Grandparents etc to celebrate the importance of Mothers (or those who take on the mothering role) in the lives of our girls with a lovely Mother’s Day morning tea.  Thank you to everyone who joined us! Our students had a wonderful time.

Clontarf

Our number one focus at Clontarf is school attendance! That is why we rewarded the 12 academy members who had 95% or more school attendance in Term 1 with a special pizza lunch during week 3. Congratulations to these boys! We are looking forward to that number growing in Term 2.

We had a great time celebrating the special women in our boys’ lives with our Mother’s Day lunch.

The lovely food was put together by our Year 8 students under the guidance of Clontarf staff Steve and Cammy. The special women that were here then watched a video that was put together by our boys who were quizzed on questions about their Mums, Nans, and Aunts.

A massive thank you to all the families that attended! We were so pleased to see 15 different families represented at the event and look forward to having you in our academy again soon.

Fundraiser

Clontarf students representing Newton Moore SHS at Country Week this year had the opportunity to raise valuable funds for their trip through a Bunnings Sausage Sizzle organised by the Clontarf Academy. All five boys who attended put in a fantastic shift which saw over 400 sausages sold. All of these sausages were donated by Chantelle from Woolworths at the Bunbury Forum, which is so greatly appreciated.

Both Woolworths and Bunnings are great partners of the Clontarf Foundation, and we really appreciate their assistance is helping the boys fundraise for Country Week.

A huge thank you to the Clontarf staff, Tim, Steve, and Cammy, for organising the event and giving up their time on Mother’s Day!
