The circus was in town and the students were excited to participate in the activities!

A visit this morning from Circus Challenge where the students had a fantastic time learning new skills! Students took their turns at the spinning plates and juggling stations, each one elevating the excitement of the session.

They were grateful for the opportunity to participate in the circus activities and have a day filled with fun and excitement. The memories of spinning plates and juggling would remain with them for a long time to come.

We are so good at sewing! ๐Ÿ™‚

During Enterprise on Thursday, students made some friendship bracelets and completed some cushions.
After learning to use the sewing machines over several weeks, students used the machines to stitch the cushion holders and then stuffed them, so the cushions are ready to use!

It is impressive to see the dedication and talent that students possess! Sew good!

Each morning, students raise the flags at the entrance to the complex. Featured in this image are the Retail students.

This daily ritual serves as a symbol of respect, unity, and patriotism within the school community. Students take turns participating in this task, starting their day with a sense of responsibility and pride in their school. As they raise the flags together, they are reminded of the values and beliefs that the flags represent. This simple act fosters a sense of community and camaraderie among the students, bringing them together in a shared purpose. It also serves as a visual representation of the school's commitment to upholding and honoring important traditions. Overall, the flag-raising ceremony each morning is a meaningful and significant way for students to start their day on a positive note.

What is an Independant Public School?

An Independent Public School (IPS) in Western Australia is a public school that has demonstrated its capacity to use increased flexibilities and responsibilities to make local decisions across various school operations, ultimately enhancing education outcomes for students.

*Here are some key points about IPS:

*Initiative and Autonomy: The IPS initiative, launched in 2009, allows schools to opt-in and choose to become independent public schools. Itโ€™s not mandatory; schools decide whether to participate.

*Local Decision-Making: IPS schools have more autonomy in decision-making. They can make choices related to curriculum, staffing, budgeting, and community engagement. This flexibility enables them to tailor their approach to meet the specific needs of their students and community.

*School Boards: Each IPS has a school board comprising teachers, parents, and community members. The board collaborates with school staff to establish a vision that reflects community aspirations and needs. Board members contribute to strategic planning and community partnerships.

*Principalโ€™s Role: IPS principals must comply with relevant legislation, industrial agreements, and government policies. They sign a โ€˜statement of expectationโ€™ that outlines strategic planning and self-assessment, contributing to the schoolโ€™s review and the principalโ€™s performance assessment.

*Growth: The IPS initiative has expanded significantly, with 639 independent public schools as of Term 1, 2024. Thirteen schools were initially selected, and two new schools opening in 2024 will also have IPS status.

In summary, IPS schools empower local communities, foster collaboration, and promote student success through tailored decision-making processes.

All IPS need Board members to participate in the direction and decision making of the school.

JTCESC is seeking Board Members - Parent Representatives. If this is of interest and you would like to support the school and the students, please feel free to attend our AGM and seek further information.

Tips to help anxiety of the first week at school!
Dealing with anxiety on the first day of school can be challenging, but here are some tips to help teenagers cope with their anxiety:

1. Prepare in advance: Plan your day ahead of time to reduce stress on the actual first day. Organize your school supplies, pick out your outfit, and pack your bag the night before. Knowing you are prepared for the day can ease your anxiety.

2. Familiarize yourself with the school: Visit the school a few days before if possible or explore the school's website and virtual tours to get familiar with the layout. Knowing where your classes, locker, cafeteria, and other important places can make you feel more at ease.

3. Connect with friends: Coordinate with friends to meet up before school or arrange to walk in together. Having familiar faces around can help reduce anxiety and make you feel more comfortable.

4. Practice deep breathing and relaxation techniques: When anxiety starts to build, take slow, deep breaths. Inhale for a count of four, hold for a count of four, and exhale for a count of four. Repeat this exercise a few times to help calm your nervous system.

5. Focus on positive thoughts: Instead of dwelling on negative thoughts or fears, try to focus on positive aspects of the first day. Remind yourself of new opportunities, making new friends, or enjoying your favourite classes.

6. Establish a routine: Having a consistent routine can create a sense of comfort and stability. Set a regular sleep schedule, eat a nourishing breakfast, and allocate time for self-care activities that help reduce stress, such as exercising or meditating.

7. Be open-minded: Approach the first day with an open mind and a positive attitude. Remember that everyone is likely feeling a similar mix of excitement and nervousness. Embrace the experience as an opportunity for growth and learning.

8. Seek support: If your anxiety becomes overwhelming, don't hesitate to reach out to a trusted adult, such as a parent, teacher, or school counsellor. They can provide guidance and support to help you navigate the first day and manage your anxiety effectively.

Remember, it's normal to feel anxious about the first day of school, but by implementing these strategies, you can help minimize the impact of anxiety and start your school year on a positive note.
