Principal's Welcomehttp://www.sjv.qld.edu.au/About%20Our%20School/Pages/Principal%27s-Welcome.aspx, Principal's WelcomePrincipal's WelcomeOn behalf of the St John Vianney's school community I warmly welcome you to our school. We have a wonderful partnership with our Parish Priest, Fr Frank Jones and the Parish of St John Vianney's. The ministry of education is one that is shared between parents, teachers and the wider community. As Principal, I will support you in nurturing and promoting the growth of our children as we reflect the life and mission of Jesus, promoting a vibrant spiritual life through learning, prayer and liturgy. My commitment to Catholic Education is lived out through my active involvement in Parish and school life and living out the Gospel values through our words and actions. I have a passion for living out the work of Nano Nagle by working with the poor and marginalised.

It has been such a delight to work with our talented students this year and I am so proud of everything they have achieved, both individually and as a whole group. <br></p><p><br></p>
Library Newshttp://www.sjv.qld.edu.au/news-events/Pages/Library-News.aspxLibrary News<p style="text-align:justify;"></p><p style="text-align:justify;">I have been reading the book, Reading Wellness by Burkins and Yaris, which encourages teachers to create enthusiastic readers - we all want our students to love reading! A question posed in the book is, “How does reading make them [the students] feel good?” Here are some possible responses: </p><ul style="text-align:justify;"><li><em>“…When we read with someone we love”</em><br></li><li><em>“…When we read the book over and over” </em><br></li><li><em>“…When a book is so good, we read it instead of doing work we need to do” </em><br></li></ul><p style="text-align:justify;">The later one I may have been guilty of from time to time. When does reading make your child feel good? Should you keep reading to your child, even when they can read independently? YES! Not only do children love a story, reading aloud and chatting about what you are reading with your child can help them to develop their language and literacy skills. It assists children to learn about words and how they work. Reading becomes a good experience as they picture the story in their mind and develop their imagination. Well done to families who have gotten back into the reading routine for Term 4. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Raging Readers begins for Prep V this week as the Year 6s prepare for story time. Book Club cut off for last orders is Friday 19th October.​<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Happy Reading! </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong><em>Lisa Harris, Teacher Librarian </em></strong> </p>
