PRINCIPAL’S REPORT Term 2 has been a very busy term with students being involved in a number of exci ng and challenging ac vi es, ranging from camps, excursions, cultural week, athle cs, NAPLAN and subject speciﬁc learning. Next term looks to be as exci ng as students begin the process of selec ng subjects for 2014. Term 3 events include Subject Expo, Parent & Teacher Interviews, Year 10 SET Planning interviews, the school musical, and our Japanese student exchange visit and many more ac vi es. I encourage you to come along to as many of these events as you can to discuss your child’s learning with teachers. Details of upcoming events are on the school website. Australian Geography Compe
Earlier in the year, fourteen of our Geography students competed in the Australian Geography Compe on. These students competed alongside 75 000 students from all around Australia. It was a challenging compe on and all the students who entered did very well. Congratula ons to Emily Jones and Khuong Vu who both achieved a Credit and Caitlin Clark who achieved a Dis nc on. Well done to all our compe tors. Arts Compe
Recently Jody Swader (Art Teacher), entered a number of art works by our students, into a compe on run by the Logan City Council. The following students were successful in gaining a place at a 3 day Training & Mentoring Program in Visual Art, which will be held at Dreamworld. Bryce Wells, Connie Wade, Imogene Mackey, Krystal Foster, Lily Sunderhauf, Molly Sunderhauf, Tiﬀany Hartwig, Alisa De Vallance, Lauren Hamilton and Ethan Paech. Congratula on to all, I’m sure this will be a valuable experience. Junior Secondary Facili es Upgrade We have just completed state of the art facili es upgrade of our junior secondary kitchen and junior secondary classrooms ready for the arrival of Year 7’s in 2015. The classrooms look bright and invi ng. Shortly we will be replacing the old dull furniture with modern, bright furniture. The kitchen is state of the art and complements our Trade Training Centre facility for senior students. Both areas will be open for business from the beginning of Term 3. SchoolKids Bonus The second payment of the Schoolkids Bonus is coming in July. If you are eligible you could receive up to $205.00 for each primary student and up to $410.00 for each secondary student. You could receive the Schoolkids Bonus if you have a child in primary or secondary school and receive Family Tax Beneﬁt Part A or you are a primary or secondary student receiving an income support payment. If you think you are eligible and you haven’t already updated your child’s educa on details with Centrelink, then visit Online Service by 29 June 2013 to ensure you receive the correct amount and are paid on me.

Congratula ons to all students who demonstrated STAR commitment and behaviour this term. Have a well deserved break and we’ll see you all in Term 3. Kay Louwrens Principal
Take home laptop program – statewide recall of Acer Aspire 1830 There have been incidents of a ‘cracked case’, where there is a hairline crack near the power button. Acer has provided clarification regarding loose screws on the upper casing of some devices. In some instances, small cracks have appeared on the upper casing plastics surrounding the power button. This is a result of two screws loosening on the lower casing of the notebook, which are easily replaced. Acer investigations have identified this as being related to incorrect length screws in the devices. These incidents are warranty repairs due to a defect in the product. Warranty process is that Acer will arrange to have the upper casing replaced along with a longer screw. This service will be covered as a warranty repair and NO CHARGE will apply to the school or student. Acer have informed Windaroo Valley State High School that we will undergo remediation Term 3 2013. I have no specific dates yet. However, it will be necessary to recall all laptops for a period of time. Acer can ‘do’ about 40 laptops per day, so we will need to stockpile the laptops so that Acer can keep working without a break. Logistically it will be challenging to recall 385 laptops for remediation. At the appointed time it will be necessary for every student to return their laptop to the IT department. There will be some paperwork to fill out and Acer will also do a health check of each laptop whilst they are here. As soon as I get information I will keep students informed at parades and on the notices. This may be an opportune time to remind students of some basic rules to be followed to ensure reliable device function Students are responsible for the care of their device. General Precautions: No food or drink is allowed next to your device while it is in use. Drinks or other liquids are not to be carried in the same bag as your device Never remove plugs or cords by tugging at the cable Cords, cables and other devices are to be inserted and removed carefully Ensure the battery is fully charged each day Carrying the Device: Screens must be closed prior to transporting the device Devices should always be carried within their protective sleeve Carry the minimum amount of paperwork in the same carry bag as the device to prevent pressure on the screen Screen Care: The screen can be damaged through pressure Do not poke at the screen Do not lean on the device when it is closed Do not place anything on the keyboard before closing the lid Do not place anything in the carry case that could press against the cover Clean the screen with a soft dry cloth or anti - static cloth Phillip Hermitage Information & Technology
ACE — Athle c Core Extension 2013 started with an increase in our program to 120 students. This is great testament to the program as it is growing in popularity and we are continuing to provide great opportunities for our students at school, district and state levels of competition. Fitness testing provided a glimpse of the potential of our students and we began working towards the cross country season and building our fitness as we do every year. We finished off the term with our annual Boulevard run. Term two started our second Boulevard run, which we implemented as a strategy to improve our cross-country results. The school cross country was a success with the ACE students making up the majority of the places in the Windaroo Valley’s cross-country team. District cross-country carnival was held at Windaroo Bears Rugby Union field and Windaroo Valley had a high presence and results at the carnival. Our Junior teams won the overall trophy and our senior teams placed third. Overall Windaroo Valley placed third in the Pacific District. 20 students were selected to represent the school at the South Coast Regional Cross-Country Championships. Six students were selected to go to the State Championships. This is a growing number and something to work on for the future. A special mention to Duyen Nguyen who placed second in the 13 girls AWD category. As term two closes, we shift our focus to trying to retain our District Athletics Title for the 14th consecutive year. This will take a focused team effort more than ever as the other schools in our District are looking to end our streak. Our focus for the year is strength in numbers. Numbers at training, competitions and a united group working for the improvements of individuals and the school. I look forward to term three with anticipation and excitement . Week two on Monday the 15/7 will be our UQ Athletics Enhancement day. Followed the next week by the beginning of our athletics season with the school field events day on Friday the 19/7. Come on Windaroo 14 in a row!!!!!! Richard Allen ACE Coordinator
SEP GOES GREEN On Friday 10th May, a large group of SEP students and staff had the amazing opportunity to work alongside some staff from the Jacobs Well Environmental Education Centre. Steve and Brett assisted us to plant a citrus orchard (25 trees) and a bush tucker garden. They arrived in their ute with its custom built trailer. They provided us with all of the potting mix, mulch, fertiliser, stakes, tools, plants and equipment. They donated a plethora of tools for the students to use in maintaining the garden and added a greenhouse, compost bin and worm farm to the amazing array of items. The students worked very hard and were extremely enthusiastic. Everyone had a great time working in teams and learning about our new plants and how to look after them. The products of these plants will enhance the already wide variety of fresh ingredients we currently grow in the gardens. The fruits of our labour will be utilised in the Trade Training Centre for creating some very fresh and fabulous food. After everybody finished their hard work we stopped for some fresh banana cake and cordial, with cappuccinos for the teachers. We thanked Steve and Brett and they promised to keep in touch and to some and see how our gardens are progressing. We look forward to being able to show them what great ‘Green Thumbs’ we have in the SEP. Debbie McConkey SEP Co-ordinator
