Our school has been working hard to care for students and families during remote learning, while maintaining a high standard of education. Take a closer look at our approach.

Parents will continue to receive email updates throughout remote learning. A record of all significant communication can be found on the COVID-19 page of our website, including helpful FAQs.
And thus we end our first two weeks of remote learning. Normally I would be encouraging students and staff in matters of school education, but in lockdown times our parent body have also joined the daily educational team (welcome!), so well done to all of you in working and guiding your children through the learning materials alongside our teachers. Our school now has nine hundred classrooms, and the campus stretches across a hundred or more suburbs, so it has been a broad team effort from all involved.
No matter how much we are isolated physically, our key concern remains that our students are cared for and connected with; and that they continue to move forward in their learning. Mr Carter and Mr Richardson have been in regular communication with parents across both sections of our school and I commend to you their helpful advice, including here in the newsletter.
The immediate plan for Sydney is uncertain, but can I encourage you in times like these to set your mind beyond the present to the promises of our eternal Father. “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Cor 4;17-18

Remote Learning Continues
As announced this week, remote learning is continuing for a further 4 weeks until August 28. We thank all our parents once again for partnering with us during this difficult time.
We know and appreciate that managing children learning remotely at home while working is challenging. Balancing work, toddlers, running a household, learning activities isn’t easy. We thank our parents for their continued work with their child/children and the support you are giving them and to the school community.
Our teachers have been working extremely hard offsite to provide a quality and supportive remote learning program for all our Prep to Year 6 students. They are spending an enormous amount of time and effort providing engaging lesson activities that help children to learn, grow and improve. This includes making teaching videos, interacting with children via Zoom, giving feedback and making extra support available to all students. They are also endeavouring to implement innovative and helpful ways to support your child and give them opportunities to connect with their friends.
We are able to support those families who need to send their children to school. Our learning support teachers, teachers aides and some casual teachers are supervising children who need to attend school. Please help us by only sending your child to school if there is a need as outlined by the health advice. Please use the Google form to register your child for the first time.
Remote Learning Resources Pick up Take Two!
Two weeks ago we successfully distributed learning material and Chromebooks for the first period of remote learning. Parents and students have found these learning packs really helpful. Our Prep to Year 2 Teachers have prepared another pack for the coming weeks of school work. We’d like to distribute these at school next Wednesday 4 August from 1pm – 4pm. An email and text message will be sent next week. Parents are permitted to leave their LGA to pick up remote learning resources from schools.
Next Friday 6 August our school has decided to set aside a day to take a break and reduce our screen time. The purpose of this day is to take a breath, refresh and catch up on work. This will look a little different in the Junior School than in Secondary. Next Friday our teachers will still Zoom the classes scheduled and post two pieces of work for the students to complete. Then you may use the rest of the day to refresh, take a walk, try something a little different.
With more devices at home and children using devices more readily, it is important to consider cybersafe practices to manage, monitor and protect your children while online. We subscribe to Family Zone. Our school devices use this service to filter, manage and monitor students’ devices. Their website has some really helpful links and articles to help parents during this time. I encourage you to take a look at this website when you have an opportunity to help ensure you and your family are putting into practice some cybersafe strategies.
If you have any feedback, comments or questions please email me at email@example.com.
Mr Paul Carter
Head of Junior School
Paul Carter shared a video message with parents last week.
In such times as these, we seem to look towards our artists, entertainers and musicians to express with sight and sound what we as a collective struggle to put into words. I’ve heard from many students that whilst the past few weeks have presented unique and certain challenges, the simple act of picking up their instrument and playing it has been a much needed source of joy and escape.
I think this, in part, comes down to the type of focus that is required to develop a technique, learn a piece of music or write a song. But more than that, we know from King David’s harp playing, that God can work through music to sooth and refresh.
Our goal as a music team for this lockdown period has been to get students active on their instruments and also writing music.
Mrs Irvine has turned playschool presenter and developed a series of videos teaching students to sing songs and see sounds on the music staff. Our Year 4 Instrumental Program has continued with our ensemble directors, under the guidance of Mrs George, developing a website with instructional videos, play alongs, posters and sheet music. The website is available here.
Students in Years 5 and 6 are bringing to life particular scenes in the novels that they are reading in literacy by creating sound effects and arranging music in an app called SoundTrap with Mrs Irvine and Mrs George.
In Year 7 and 8, students are working on short composition projects under the guidance of Mrs Stonestreet, Mrs George and Mr Humphreys. The first is through developing an imagined video game and composing music to establish the characters, levels, power-ups, etc. The next project will focus on the Olympics.
And in Years 9 to 12, students (and their teachers!) have completed a two-week ‘Practical Challenge’ where they have set goals on what they’d like to work on in relation to their music reading, technical ability on their instrument and a performance piece. They have been making a short practice vlog to track their progress. From next week students and teachers will start their ‘Composition Challenge’ with short song-writing activities.
Our Music Tuition Program (formally called Peripatetic Program) also continues! Parents had the option to either pause their enrolment for the lockdown period or take lessons online via Zoom. We’ve been really encouraged by the number of parents who have opted for lessons to continue online. I’ve particularly enjoyed seeing the resourcefulness and creativity of our tutors in providing quality learning activities for the students. If you would like to know more about the program or enrol your child, please visit this website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lastly, a large driver of the momentum in music education is regular performance opportunities. Whilst it is too early to lock in dates, as a team, we have been looking at creative ways that we can pre-record and livestream different student performances when we are back on site for face to face learning. Stay tuned for information about this as it becomes available.
Mr David Humphreys
Head of Music
At the end of last term, Year 10 Geography students travelled to Parramatta as part of the topic that they have been studying called Changing Places. In this topic students have been looking at the concepts of liveability and sustainability.
Year 10 conducted fieldwork around Parramatta to find out how liveable and sustainable the city has become after significant urban development, using techniques of observation notes, line drawings and a liveability survey. To gather this fieldwork data students walked around in classes with their teachers to observe different parts of Parramatta; residential, commercial and recreational. They even got to see Bankwest Stadium, the home of the mighty Parramatta Eels.
Year 10 were able to engage with a part of Sydney that most of them do not regularly visit. The excursion was also a great opportunity to put into practice what they had been learning about Changing Places in class. The teachers were impressed with the conclusions that students came to about the liveability and sustainability of Parramatta.
Mr Matthew Miller
Head of HSIE
In the pre-lockdown time of last term our Year 10 Drama students had the privilege of being part of the audience for a 25 year anniversary performance of 'The 7 Stages of Grieving' by the Sydney Theatre Company at the newly refurbished Wharf Theatres.
The play is a solo performance written by Wesley Enoch and Deborah Mailman, with the title referencing the seven phases of Aboriginal history and Elisabeth Kübler-Ross's model known as the five stages of grief. The play explores the concept of Indigenous history being a grieving process since colonisation, due to the loss of Aboriginal people and culture. It was an important moment for our students to view a performance that they had explored in class, live, on stage, as they listened to an Indigenous perspective on issues in Australia's history.
After the performance we took part in a Q and A with Shari Sebbens (director) and Elaine Crombie (actress). Our very own Damon Beaton was brave enough to ask a question of Elaine Crombie. He asked: was she personally affected by the issues present within the play and if so, how? Her response gave us all insight into the complexities present in our own country's past.
It was pleasing to see the humble way our students approached this performance. As a Christian school we are to be shining lights in our community: being slow to speak, quick to listen and showing God's love to those who are particularly vulnerable. Through their respectful attitude during this excursion, as well as the thoughtful way they listened during the Q and A, our students embodied what we value here at our school. May they continue to approach our diverse and complex world in this way.

Head of Drama
It already feels like a lifetime ago that Joseph was put on stage. And considering everything that has happened over these past 2 years we are so incredibly thankful to God that amongst it all we were able to successfully produce a major whole school production which culminated in our show week at the end of last term.
I would like to thank all who were involved whether that be the students who were on stage, students and staff behind the scenes or the many parents who were so supportive of our efforts in the lead up. Without your input and support we wouldn't have had such an edifying community experience together.
As I sit in my lounge and attempt to guide my students through a remote learning experience, I can't help but be grateful. Grateful that we have already collectively fed into our school community so well this year and can now draw upon this while we're apart. Grateful that we have a better sense of what we are capable of doing under God when we can work together. And grateful that our students were given such a rich learning experience while we could be together as a part of the show, whether on stage, backstage or in the audience. What a wonderful opportunity for us all to have had. I sincerely hope you are all strengthened by God during these times as we look forward to coming together once again.

On Friday 4 June, Montana Pantano, Year 8, represented Shire Christian School at CSSA Gymnastics in Rooty Hill, achieving 5th place overall in her first ever inter-school competition.
Montana participated in the level 7 section and said she was grateful for the opportunity to represent the school.
"I competed in many events including vault, bars, beam and floor," she said.
"It was a huge day of competition, which was exhausting. For my first inter-school competition, I did quite well, coming 1st on floor and 2nd on vault, placing 5th overall in the entire competition. I was very happy with my results as I had never placed in CSSA before."
Well done, Montana!
How can we remain hopeful, positive, and encouraged when so much is happening around us at the moment to push us in the opposite direction? My go-to starting point is always God’s inspired Word.
In Romans 15:4 I read, “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the ENCOURAGEMENT OF THE SCRIPTURES we might have HOPE.” But that’s only the start! I also find that throughout the Bible, the verb ‘encourage’ is often followed by the phrase ‘one another’ or ‘each other’! The God who created us in his own image has revealed himself as ONE God in THREE Persons. In other words, he has DESIGNED us for RELATIONSHIP. The principal means he has set in place for our encouragement is ‘ONE ANOTHER’. It is not surprising, therefore, that our enemy, Satan (meaning ‘Accuser’), who is determined to undermine the spiritual life we were designed to enjoy, is the master of DIScouragement. And, if ‘one another’ is so fundamental to God’s design for our ENcouragement, it stands to reason that Satan will make every effort to destroy our UNITY in Christ.
With all this in mind, what do I have to look out for? Every opportunity that might come my way to ENCOURAGE someone who might be finding things tough, especially someone who just doesn’t have ‘other’ to add to their ‘each’ or ‘one an’! Just a smile, or a positive, uplifting word can do wonders - letting them know about something they have said/done/been that has been a blessing.
The other side of the coin is also important. If we have been designed to be encouraged by one another, our enemy, Satan, will always be ‘prowl[ing] around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour’ (1 Peter 5:8) and he knows how much his purposes are advanced by creating a critical, fault-finding, judgemental attitude in us toward one another. The extra pressures on our daily lives during the pandemic and lockdown restrictions make things difficult for all of us, requiring decisions to be made ‘in the dark’ and that can only be tested by hindsight, a situation which enables Satan to have a field-day in engendering unrest and tension among us. So let us examine our hearts in the light of this and make sure we are more likely to be positive towards, and supportive of, one another, rather than engaging in fault-finding and being critical.
Another important feature of mutual encouragement is being in regular prayer for one another. Even the Apostle Paul was not so confident that he didn’t greatly appreciate the prayer support he received from friends (Philippians 1:19; 2 Corinthians 1:11; Ephesians 6:18-19). Do we let others know we are supporting them regularly in prayer? Closely associated with this is the encouragement we can give by sharing with each other the things we are learning from God’s Word daily, and the way we see his gracious hand at work in answer to prayer.
The ‘one another’ aspect of encouragement is made much more difficult in the present circumstances. (I was going to mention how enthusiastic, heart-felt congregational singing is also a significant channel of mutual encouragement, but that might be rubbing salt into the wound!) We can be thankful for the way technology is helping us to overcome these problems, so let us be creative and use it in whatever way we can. (I didn’t think I’d ever find myself writing about being thankful for technology - but there you go, extraordinary things happen in extraordinary times!)

Your free guide to a career in Optometry
Given that approximately 75% of vision loss is preventable or treatable, there is usually something that can be done to help your patients.
Given that work-related factors such as clinical challenges keep 78% of Australian optometrists happy and satisfied with their profession, you will most likely enjoy this profession if you like the challenge of putting together all the clues to reach a diagnosis and management plan in complex cases.
The scope of practice of optometrists is expanding. Students commencing an optometry degree in the future will be therapeutically endorsed when they graduate. This means that they will be better placed to assist some of their patients who present with eye inflammations, infections and injuries. It is expected that the number of people presenting to optometrists instead of emergency departments with eye injuries will increase

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” - John 1:14 (ESV)
