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 Dantus Thottahil​ 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.

The Term in Reviewhttp://www.sjv.qld.edu.au/news-events/Pages/The-Term-in-Review.aspxThe Term in Review<p>​SJV is built upon the charism of the Presentation Sisters whose founder, Nano Nagle, followed in the footsteps of Jesus and dreamt that everyone would have the opportunity to be included and participate fully in life. Students at SJV are certainly given lots of opportunity to participate in many different activities. As we conclude Term 3, it is important to stop and reflect on all of the exciting activities our students have been involved in that make our school such a rich, wonderful place of learning:<br></p><p><ul><li>Years 3-6 Running Club</li><li>Sports Aerobics<br></li><li>P-2 Fun Fitness Friday<br></li><li>Maths Olympiad Contests<br></li><li>School Choir<br></li><li>Touch Football training<br></li><li>Contemporary Band<br></li><li>Opti-Minds Competition<br></li><li>Fr Dantus visiting classrooms<br></li><li>Classes attending Parish Mass<br></li><li>Years 2-6 Athletics Carnival<br></li><li>Excursions & Incursions<br></li><li>Yr 5 & 6 Formation Day<br></li><li>AFL Auskick Program<br></li><li>Writing workshops & Author visits<br></li><li>ICAS competitions<br></li><li>Book Week activities<br></li><li>Father’s Day Stall & Picnic<br></li><li>100 Days of Prep Celebration<br></li><li>Catholic Education Week<br></li><li>Roar Active Program Years 2-4<br></li><li>Raw Art Lessons<br></li><li>Year 4 Camp<br></li><li>Prep & Year 1 Athletics Carnival<br></li><li>Market Day Years 5 & 6<br></li><li>Origin Energy Netball Competition​<br></li></ul><br>Many of these events happen due to the generosity of time and organisation of our staff who willingly serve our community above and beyond their normal duties. The lantern carried by Nano Nagle as she served the people of Cork is proudly carried on in the work of our staff and I thank them for their service to our community in nurturing every child’s intellectual, physical, emotional, social, moral and spiritual growth. I would also like to thank the many parents who generously offer their support for our school. The partnership between home and school is a valuable strength of our school community.<br><br><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/news-events/PublishingImages/thankyou.jpg" alt="thankyou.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:350px;height:238px;" />​<br></p><p><br></p>
Year 5 & 6 - Civics & Citizenshiphttp://www.sjv.qld.edu.au/news-events/Pages/Year-5-&-6---Civics-&-Citizenship.aspxYear 5 & 6 - Civics & Citizenship<p></p><p>The Year 5 and 6 students have been engaging in their Civics and Citizenship unit as a part of the HASS curriculum. Through this unit, the students have been learning about financial decision making, how these can impact on the broader community and also how expanding and developing businesses involves making decisions and considering the trade-offs.<br><br>To deepen their learning, and make connections to real world contexts, the students have developed businesses that cater to the needs and wants of SJV’s staff, students and the wider community. They are gathering market research and are making adjustments to their goods and services to better cater to their target audience.<br><br>Your child (Prep – Year 4) will have the opportunity to come to the Year 5 and 6 Business Market Day on Thursday 16th September between 9:00 – 10:50am where they can purchase some of the products, should they wish, and learn more about the services available. Some of the incredible products include slices and cupcakes, lip scrubs, scrunchies and face masks all handmade and designed by the senior students. While some of the services include dog walking, piano lessons and after school tutoring. It would be wonderful if your child could support one or two of these business endeavours (prices range between $0.50 and $10 for some of the services) so that the Year 5 and 6 students can fully understand the process in its entirety. Please keep an eye out for a catalogue in next week’s newsletter.<br></p><p>​​<br><br></p>
