A MESSAGE FROM THE HEADMASTER
MOTHERS’ DAY – 8 MAY 2011
“My son, obey your father's commands, don't neglect your mother's teaching. Keep their
words always in your heart. Tie them around your neck. Wherever you walk, their
counsel can lead you. When you sleep, they will protect you. When you wake up in the
morning, they will advise you. For these commands and this teaching are a lamp to light
the way ahead of you. The correction of discipline is the way to life.” Proverbs 6:20-23
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the mothers and grandmothers in our College
community a wonderful Mother’s Day on Sunday. I know that your children and grandchildren
love you and appreciate all that you do for them.
Mothers’ Day is an opportunity to reflect on our mothers and the unconditional love they have for their children.
As I reflect on my own childhood, I remember many of the things that my mother did for my sister, my brother and
me. I remember great meals she cooked, the work she did to care for us, the sympathy she gave when we hurt and
the pride she had when we achieved. I also remember many of the things she taught me in conversations, in
actions and even when disciplining us. Even though there were numerous times we argued with her as we grew
up, today I remember only a small number of the arguments we had with her. As I reflect on my mother, I am
thankful for the love, care and guidance she gave us and the contribution she made towards us becoming the
adults we are today.
As I think about growing up, I also remember the times that my mother said, when we had done something she
was not happy with, “I do not like what you are doing but I will always love you.” Yes, there were times at least one
of us did things which upset our mother, times when we did things we were not allowed to do, times when our
reports said we were not working hard enough at school, times when we argued with her and times we thought
she was ‘the worst mother ever as ALL our friends’ mothers were going to let them go “.
Today, I can look back and see that nearly all the arguments between my mother and her children were times that
it was the children who were doing or planning to do something silly or dangerous and challenging the values she
wanted us to have. I see now that my mother’s reactions were examples of her love for us. Although we may have
been stubborn and angry towards her, she still wanted to keep us safe, to help us know right from wrong, to avoid
the errors teenagers make and to get the best start in life. There were probably many times that she wished she
could give up, but because she loved us she continued to take the hard steps to challenge us and, at times, to
discipline us but she never stopped loving us.
May I encourage all students to spend some time this weekend to reflect on the unconditional love their mother
has for them and to say a big “THANK YOU” to her.
I would also like to encourage each of us to reflect on another example of unconditional love - the love that God
has shown to us. We are blessed in that God provides all that we need. He cares for us even though every day we
all do things that He does not like. He never gives up on loving us. There will be times when He needs to rebuke
us, times when He will say ‘No!” times when He will guide us away from things we want to do and towards doing
things He wants us we do. The full extent of His unconditional love for us was shown when, although we are
sinners and deserve his wrath, He sent his son to die for us so that we may be saved. Please remember that whilst
God ‘does not like what we do, He will always love us”, watch over us and offer the gift of eternal life through Jesus
Christ.

THANK YOU FOR MUM’S BIG BREKKY – PARENTS AND FRIENDS
This morning’s Mum’s Big Brekky, at which members of the Parents and Friends Association served breakfast to
about three hundred Broughton mothers and their children was a wonderful celebration for Mother’ Day. To see
such a large number of Broughton mothers and grandmothers having breakfast with their children and
grandchildren was exciting.
The breakfast was part of the P and F initiative of continuing to build the sense of community within the College. I
thank the team who planned and set up for this event. I particularly would like to thank those who arrived at the
College at 6 a.m. this morning to prepare the breakfast.
P.S. Dads – don’t worry as we will have the chance to have a ‘Blokes Breakfast’ with our children on Friday 2
September 2011. More details about this in a newsletter closer to the date.
WORKING BEE – 14 MAY 2011
The Term 2 Working Bee will be held on Saturday 14 May 2011. Further details are provided in the College News
section of this newsletter.
UNIFORMS
Students are reminded that as from Monday all students are to be in winter uniform. As we move into winter
uniform could I ask parents and students to review the uniform guidelines which can be found in the Student
Handbook (Senior School – Page 18, Junior School – Page - 8).
At this week’s Senior School assembly, I raised concerns about the way a small number of students are wearing
their uniform. Some matters that were raised included:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
a number of boys who need to have haircuts to meet the ‘Eye brow – Ear lobe - Collar’ rule;
spiked hair is not allowed;
girls with hair that touch their shoulders should have it tied back with a red or white ribbon;
the winter uniform does not give an excuse for boys to have their shirts out;
the top button of the shirt for boys should be done up and their ties should be worn correctly;
blazers and hats should be worn when coming to and from the College;
hats should be worn when in the playground.
Although there are a number of concerns that I have raised, please note that the majority of the student body are
wearing their uniform well.
Parents are asked to note that individual and group photographs will be taken on Wednesday 25 May for the
Senior School and Thursday 26 May for the Junior School. Students have been advised that if they do not meet
uniform requirements on the day, they may be excluded from having their photograph taken.

COLES SPORTS FOR SCHOOLS
The Coles Sports gear has arrived! Towards the end of Term 1 the College received delivery of the sports gear from
the vouchers that were collected in 2010. Across the College the Parents, students and Staff were able to collect a
total of 26,880 vouchers, an amazing effort! The equipment has been on display in the IRC and very shortly will be
put to use in both Junior and Senior PE and Sports classes. The trolley contains a range of equipment including,
basketballs, soccer balls, AFL balls, and softballs. As well as this there are bean bags, skipping ropes, witches hats,
hurdles, batons and bibs.
Accompanying the sports equipment are posters Year 7 students created in Term 1 that explore the benefits that
physical activity has on all the dimensions of health. A video of the display can be viewed on the IRC website at
http://bacirc.edublogs.org/. Click on displays 2011 and then Year 7 Benefits of Health and Physical Activity.

FREE EVENTS FOR PARENTS
A series of free seminars for parents are run in the Macarthur area. These seminars address topics such as
Decoding the Adolescent Mind and Building Strong and Resilient Young People. For dates and other seminars the
following website is very informative: www.macarthurparents.com.au.
JUNIOR SCHOOL
MRS A BLOCKLEY - HEAD OF THE JUNIOR SCHOOL
Welcome to Week 2 of Term 2. By the end of this week we will have finished the various
Mothers’ Day events held at the College. I would like to wish all mothers and grandmothers a
wonderful day on Sunday and a well deserved rest.
NAPLAN
Next week we move onto testing in the form of NAPLAN for Years 3 and 5. This will take place on
Tuesday for Language and Writing, Wednesday for Reading and Thursday for Numeracy. We
encourage all students in Years 3 and 5 to attend on these days to participate in these tests, and
to have a relaxing night beforehand as all preparation for these tests has already been done at
school in the course of their learning. These tests are a valuable measure of individual student growth over a two
year period. Broughton values periodic diagnostic testing as a way of tracking academic development of our
students but also finds the additional information gained from NAPLAN valuable.
SPORT
In the first two weeks of this term students have been trying out for the various winter sporting teams for Terms 2
and 3. Next week the teams will be training. This will be followed by friendly games against Macarthur Anglican
School at Broughton on Wednesday 18 May.
CARPARK
We would like to request that parents refrain from speaking with teachers who are on afternoon duties in the pick
up zone. These teachers are responsible for both student safety and for keeping the traffic flowing. If you have an
urgent matter to discuss, may we suggest that you park your car and wait for the teacher to finish their duty, or
otherwise make an appointment at a more mutually convenient time.

GETTING READING RIGHT AT BROUGHTON
2011 marks Broughton’s second year of implementing a new synthetic phonics program called Get Reading Right.
Our current Year 1 students worked through this program last year, as the first group to begin this exciting
program. They are now in their second year with exciting results being achieved. With two grades now using the
synthetic phonics program, the Infants teachers have been making resources and have also been trained on how
to use the program effectively within the classroom.
Children begin their pre-literacy skills early on in life. These begin from the first time they are read a book and are
able to delight in a parent’s voice telling them stories that match wonderfully coloured pictures. In Kindergarten,
we use these pre-literacy skills and develop them into literacy skills, building on the work that has already
happened, just by a child’s mere interaction with books in their younger years.
As parents it can be an intense task watching your child develop these new literacy skills as you see them come
home with cards labeled “camera words,” and language such as “phonemes” and “graphemes”. The even bigger
question that we have as parents is, “how can I help my child with their literacy?”
Jo-Ann Dooner the Co- Founder of Get Reading Right recently had her research and experiences appear in an
article that explores, and hopefully gives a starting point to, synthetic phonics. The article’s web address, as well as
the Get Reading Right web address, have been included to help you understand the synthetic phonics program
that we are implementing at Broughton.
Although the program is explicitly being taught to Kindergarten and Year 1, the concept of Synthetic phonics is
being used throughout all the Junior School, when looking at reading development. Getting Reading Right
identifies five reading forms that form the core of a Reading Program:
•
•
•
•
•
Phonemic Awareness
Synthetic Phonics
Vocabulary Knowledge
Reading Fluency
Comprehension
BROUGHTON Newsletter
-
5
All of these reading forms are incorporated into the reading and writing programs for all grade levels to ensure
that students are developing their literacy skills.
If you have any concerns about your child’s literacy skills or reading development please contact your child’s class
teacher.
Please enjoy reading the article as well as the Get Reading Right website, which also has a special section for
parents.

ACTIVE AFTER-SCHOOL COMMUNITIES PROGRAM TERM 2 2011
The Active After-School Communities Program for Term 2, 2011 will commence Monday 9 May 2011 and finish on
Wednesday 22 June 2011. Dates for Terms 3 and 4 will be available later in the year. This program is free to attend,
as it is funded by the Australian Sports Commission. The commission aims to encourage young people to enjoy
being physically active and to eat well.
The program will be run on Monday (based on cricket) and Wednesday (based on basketball) afternoons. Both
sessions will be lead by an external coach and will be open to any student in Years 1-6.
The program will be generally run in the R.A.Webb Sports Centre between 3- 4.15pm. After normal classes,
students will meet at the canteen with the Out of School Hours Care Services (OSHCS) to wait for the supervising
teacher and get their name marked off and then move as a group to the Sports Centre.
At approximately 4pm, at the end of the AASSC program, students will have a break and fruit to eat. Those not
involved in the OSHCS program should be collected, and signed off, from the Sports Centre or Senior Cafeteria.
Students involved in the OSHCS program will rejoin their regular program at the IRC.
Students will need to bring to school with them; suitable footwear for physical activity in the sports centre (white
soles), their own water bottle and any required medication such as an asthma puffer. Fruit is provided for
afternoon tea at 4pm.
Permission forms have been given out for all students in Years 1-6 which need to be returned to the Junior School
Office. If numbers are too high, preference will be given to students who return their permission notes early.
Should all places be filled, you will be phoned and notified about this.
Any parents interested in helping out are welcome to contact Mrs Ferris by phone (02 4633 8365) or email:

MISA DEBATE ROUND 1
On Thursday 28 April, the Year 8 Debating team consisting of Kye Hooper, Scott Perrin, Michelle Fortescue and
Georgi Georgieff travelled to John Therry Catholic High School to compete in the first round of the MISA 2011
Debating Competition. The topic was 'That the voting age should be lowered to sixteen' and the Broughton team
were the affirmative.
Kye and Scott ably presented the team's arguments and Michelle forcefully rebutted the negative team's points
and very convincingly summed up for her team. Georgi provided commendable support as the team adviser.
It was clear that the Broughton Team Line - 'Sixteen and Keen' - was superior. This, combined with cooperative
team work and excellent delivery by the speakers, won the debate for Broughton. The John Therry Team were
gracious in defeat and provided a sumptuous lunch. The students are looking forward to Round 2 when they meet
Magdalene Catholic College here at Broughton.
STUDY SKILLS TIP FOR MAY: CARING FOR YOUR NOTEBOOK COMPUTER
Have you been working on improving your study skills this year? Working through the units on the Study Skills
Handbook site www.studyskillshandbook.com.au will help you learn techniques to complete your work for school
more effectively and improve your academic results, helping you move towards your personal best at school and
beyond.
There are also a number of additional units on the site looking at technology: how you can use technology to help
you study, useful iPhone Apps, and ways to manage and organise your files. There is also a section on physical
care of your computer, and how to make it last as long as possible. Following are some of the tips from this
section.
FOOD AND DRINK: Food and drink do not go well with computer screens and keyboards. Keep drinks especially
well clear.
CASES: Notebooks don’t bounce, so keep them in their protective cases/covers and don’t use them on unstable
surfaces.
HEAT: Don’t leave a notebook in a car for too long, especially on a hot day. Notebooks don’t like extremes of
weather temperature.
PETS: Be aware that pets may like to chew through power supply cables.
TRIPPING: When you are using your power supply, be aware of trip hazards. The cables inside the power supply
are also easily broken so even though it may look as though it is OK, it could stop working.
DUST: Avoid dusty or smoky environments. Don’t store the laptop somewhere dusty (like under your bed) as the
air filters can get blocked.
AIR VENTS: Work out where the air vents are on your computer. Make sure you don’t block the vents when the
computer is on or it may overheat.

STORMS: You should always unplug the computer from the power outlet during a lightning storm. Otherwise your
data may get fried!

EARLY ENTRY 2011 – UNIVERSITY OF WOLLONGONG
University Of Wollongong’s Early Entry applications will open on Friday 1 July 2011.
Early Entry at the University of Wollongong is how 2011 Year 12 students can earn a place in a Bachelor degree at
UOW before they sit the Higher School Certificate. They are after people with passion and talent for a subject
area—the kind of people who can excel at university.
Early Entry applicants are assessed based on their school academic record, not just the ATAR. Excellent results in
relevant subjects often mean students are ready for university study.
Each year UOW works to refine and improve the Early Entry program which has lead to a few changes which
schools and students should be aware of.
The key changes for 2011 are:
• Students can apply for Early Entry to a of maximum of four undergraduate courses only;
• Students will be asked to place their courses in preference order on their application – students are not locked
into these preferences in any way, and placing a course lower in preference will not impact on how faculties
consider a student’s application;
• For the first time, students will be able to apply for Creative Arts degrees through the Early Entry process, rather
than the separate process that has been in place previously.
Broughton students can access the Early Entry website for full details of this year’s program including eligibility,
courses offered, how to apply and process expectations.
The 2011 Application Guide will be available in soft copy at this site from late May 2011.
PREFECTS’ CORNER
VICTORIA TRANBY
This Sunday we celebrate Mother’s Day. It is the time of year where we thank our Mums for all
they do and spoil them. Parents are very special. They are always there to support us when we
need help, encourage us and, most importantly, love us.
In the Bible it says we should honour our father and mother, which is a commandment God
gave to his people. We should always honour our parents and thank them for all they do. On
Sunday do something special for your Mum and remember everything she does for you.
PRAYER POINTS
•
•
Give thanks for those who so willingly serve on the Parents and Friends Association and who spend
countless hours assisting the College and to the many parents who helped at the Mothers Day breakfast.
Praise God for the many blessings which he gives to our College and for the opportunity given through
this event to bring so many of our community together.
Praise God for the gift of parents, particularly this weekend, praise God for our mothers. We pray that God
will continue to watch over and bless our families.
