Edition 12 2015.pub - Capella State High School

Issue 12 08 May 2015 Principal’s Note Welcome to this week’s newsle er. We had great news at the recent Rostrum Public Speaking Compe on held in Dysart. There were 4 heats amongst Central Highland Schools and Capella SHS won 3 of them. How good is that? Congratula ons and thank you to Mr G, teachers and parents who transported all of our students to Dysart and returned home late in the evening. Well done everyone! As I write this, Ms Burns is looking a er our Senior Ca le Club students who are compe ng in the Rockhampton Beef Expo. We wish them well. I should also men on that we will be entering the Educa on Qld Showcase Awards state‐wide compe on again this year with our agricultural grounds extension being another highlight of our successful program. Next week we have two significant events running. Yes it is NAPLAN week where our Year 7 and Year 9 students will be tested against the na on. The tes ng will provide significant informa on on your child’s progress especially in literacy and numeracy. We encourage all students to a empt the 5 tests from Tuesday to Thursday next week. The best thing you can do to assist your child is to help them have a good night’s rest the day before. The second event is the Mayoral Summit held at the Cultural Hall from 10.00am on Saturday. For the past 2 years we have had a community reference group that has given feedback to the council about Capella’s needs. Indeed Capella was the first reference group established for the council, hence Capella is hos ng all the community reference groups at the cultural hall on Saturday. Come along to see how you can have input into your town ma ers. Date Claimers MAY

Reading and Radical Readers – Our CSHS Junior Home Reading Program Over the last two days, it has been a privilege to be part of an innovative cluster project aimed at working in with other schools in the
Emerald area to increase consistency in the teaching of reading, and thus improve outcomes for students. BMA has committed over
$250,000 across three years to the cluster of six schools to ensure that reading, the core driver of literacy development, is improved for
all students. For us at Capella SHS, that means tightening our alignment in reading practices from classroom to classroom and building
on the good work already being done by our teachers working in collaboration with our literacy coach, Mrs Donaldson to lift common
expertise and consistency, and focus on core literacy skills.
The timing couldn’t be better then, for students to focus on increasing the amount
of reading being done and for the Year 8 / 9 students to begin our annual Radical
Readers program. Radical Readers is a whole-school home reading program
wherein students log, and gradually increase the amount of reading being done.
It is at this time of year, when newer students are settled into high school routines, that they can take their foot off the pedal when it comes to reading. This
program is aimed at ensuring that students are applying the quality work done on Reading in classrooms to their own texts of choice.
Students need to:







Ensure they get a Radical Readers Activity Sheet and Radical Readers
Tracking Sheet
Read for 20 mins a day or night on at least four occasions during the
week
Complete one simple activity of their choice per week – the activity
should take no longer than approximately 15 minutes. All activities have
been designed to foster multiple, higher order thinking skills
Have their Radical Readers Tracking Sheet initialled or signed by a parent when the reading is done
Present their completed sheets and activity to their Skilling Teachers every Wednesday
Incentives will be provided to students who have the most interesting and complete reading activities at the end of the term
Students who fail to complete reading activities may be disciplined for their non-compliance
NAPLAN Testing
Next week (Tues May 12, Weds May 13 & Thurs May 14) sees students in Years 7 & 9 participate in the National Assessment Program
in Literacy and Numeracy. Please assist your children and our school by ensuring that students:



Eat well
Sleep well
Have as little anxiety around the tests as possible – this can be supported by parents having open, reasonable discussions about the tests as if they were the same as any other school assessment
Our school encourages full participation in NAPLAN, however, if you would like to discuss arrangements for your child’s specific needs,
please contact either myself or Ray Clarke.
Junior Camps
Due to low numbers of responses, we have extended the deadline of the return of school forms for the Junior Camps, both to Airlie
Beach and Camp Fairbairn, (just out of Emerald). Please ensure that forms are returned by Friday May 6th at the latest.
Should you wish to discuss any aspect of your child’s
