From the Principal
Welcome to our third and final
newsletter for this term.
Sport has been high on the
school’s agenda for this term.
Congratulations to Red House for
a job well done. Well done to our
Secondary Interschool team who
competed at the YP Athletics Day
held in Moonta this week. Well
done in advance, to the Primary Interschool Athletics
Team who I’m sure will have competed very
successfully in the SYP Combined Primary Schools
Athletics Day on Thursday this week (the day we
print our newsletter). As always I am pleased to
report how great it was to see the spirit of friendly
competition evident in the way our students
approached these days. I received many positive
comments after our own Sports Day about both the
behaviour of our students and the smooth way the
day operated.
A big congratulation to Blake who has been
selected in the Australian Under 16 School Boys
Cricket team. It is not every day we have a
member of an Australian team who is also a
YAS student. We look forward to a report from
Blake when he returns from Sri Lanka.
Meet the Principal – Morning Tea Invitation
Wed 2 April
I have spoken to a number of parents who have
said they would love a chance to meet with staff
informally and to take a tour of the school and
see it in action; if you would like this opportunity
then please complete the RSVP at the end of
the newsletter. We, staff and I, look forward to
having a cup of tea with you from 10:30 to
11:00am and then, if you like, a tour of the
school from 11:00am.
Staffing
With Term 2 fast approaching I can report that
at this stage we are expecting no staff changes
for second term.
NAPLAN Testing
The annual NAPLAN assessments are coming
up in the third week of Term 2. For your
information the tests will be conducted over the
days Tues 13 to Thursday 15 May. Protocols
are in place to ensure the tests are conducted
according to the rules. Parents are advised that
we expect all students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 to
participate in the NAPLAN test. We ask that you
try not to schedule anything that will require
your child to be absent from school on those
days.
We are however aware that the test protocols
allow parents to withdraw their child(ren) for
philosophical or personal reasons. Students
who are absent due to illness on test days have
an opportunity to sit the test on their return to
school in the week of the tests. If you have such
concerns regarding the NAPLAN tests please
contact Junior School Coordinator, Kelly Coe, if
your child is in Years 3 or 5 or Middle School
Phone: 8852 1233 Fax: 8852 1024 Email: [email protected]
Coordinator, Bronny Maywald, if your child is in
Years 7 or 9 in the next few weeks to discuss
the issues?
Attendance
At YAS we keep an eye on student attendance
at a number of levels – home group teachers
follow up unexplained absences, at leadership
meetings we specifically consider students who
have a large number of absences and the
attendance officer regularly visits with us to
proactively support concerns we may have. We
take this issue seriously as regular attendance
at school is one of the key indicators of
academic success. Term 1 had 54 days so a
student who was absent for 5 days had missed
just under 10% of the instruction time available.
We know there will always be unavoidable
absences from school. Prolonged illness can
prove to be one such reason. Occasionally
families seek exemption from school so that
their child can go on a family holiday.
These longer one-off absences can usually be
dealt with if you or your child seeks school work
to complete during the absence.
The more detrimental kinds of absences are the
regular and semi-regular single day absences.
These lead to work being incomplete and key
concepts and tests being missed. It is sobering
to reflect that if a child regularly misses 1 day
per week of school from years 1 to 11 they will
be absent for approximately 441 days, which is
approximately a year and half of learning time. If
you require assistance or advice regarding
attendance then please do not hesitate to
contact the school.
National Day of Action against Bullying and
Violence
As I reported in the last newsletter March 21st is
the National Day of Action against Bullying and
Violence. To signify this day a bullying audit will
be conducted across the school. Mrs Agnew has
been working with members of the SRC to
finalise and revamp the questions we will be
asking. If you would like more information
regarding bullying an easy to follow fact sheet
along with many other resources can be found at
http://www.bullyingnoway.gov.au/nationalday/for-schools/resources.html
For your information I have included a couple of
sections from this resource in this newsletter.
It is also timely to remind you all that DECD has
published a Parent Guide to Raising a Concern
or Complaint brochure. This is available from the
front office or from the link on our school website
if required. Steps guiding how complaints should
be made are explained in the brochure. If you’d
like more information give me a call or visit the
department’s website at
www.decd.sa.gov.au/parentcomplaint or email
[email protected] There is
also a free call number 1800 677 435.
This document supports the YAS Grievance
Procedures and I have included a copy of the
procedures in the newsletter or you can
download an electronic copy from our website.

From the Junior School
Hello everyone! Here we are in Week 8 already!
It seems hard to believe how quickly the term is
going. It has certainly been a very busy term with
lots of events and special days.
Our Sports Day was very successful! All students
participated enthusiastically and demonstrated
good sportsmanship. We had some excellent
results across the board! It was a great day and
we received positive feedback from parents and
visitors. Thank you to anyone who helped out on
the day! It certainly makes the day run smoothly
and assists teaching staff with different jobs!
Today we hosted the SYP Interschool Sports
Day. Our Primary students have been practising
their events and were more than ready to
compete. We are sure it has been another great
day of competition and fun! The Parents and
Friends group put a lot of work into organising
the catering for the day. Thank you to our P&F,
your effort and time is very much appreciated!
A reminder to all of our students to keep reading
and filling in your Premier’s Reading Challenge
sheets. We would like as many of the primary
students to complete the challenge as possible!
This term is our three way interview process.
Letters and booking sheets will be sent home in
the next week, although some of you may have
already received these from class teachers.
Please read the covering letter carefully and
return your interview preference sheets to
teachers as soon as you can. Every endeavour
will be made to accommodate those of you who
have more than one child in the unit as far as
booking consecutive times for your interviews.
We would encourage you to attend these
interviews. It is a very effective avenue for all of
us to discuss your child’s learning and
development.
On Wednesday March 12, Mrs Secker and the
Reception children visited the Yorketown
Community Children’s Centre. They were
involved in lots of play-based activities and
certainly enjoyed their time together. It is a great
opportunity for our children and staff to interact
and share in a variety of learning activities.
If you are running late for school, need to take
your child early from school or for an
appointment please ensure you sign them in
and out via our front office. Do not just collect
them from the classroom. This is school
procedure and how we monitor where our
students are at all times. Also, if your child is
absent for any reason, please fill in and return
our school absentee notes to your child’s class
teacher. Thank you for your cooperation in these
matters.
There are some upcoming events you might like
to pencil into your diaries. We have the ‘Music is
Fun’ band coming to school Friday 6 June. We
are looking forward to their visit. The shows are
always entertaining and interactive!
Our primary camp has been booked. The dates
are Monday 8 September until Wednesday 10
September. We will be attending the Arbury
Park Outdoor School in Bridgewater. Information
regarding cost and camp details will be sent
home early next term.
That’s probably enough for now! Hope you are
all enjoying this lovely weather. Remember,
keep reading and recording those books!!

MID TERM REVIEW
Some Middle School and Senior School
parents/caregivers would have received letters
early last week alerting them to concerns that
some teachers have about their child’s progress.
We would encourage those parents who haven’t
already done so to, either contact the Middle
School or Senior School Coordinators to arrange
a meeting with the teacher/teachers concerned
or, to directly contact the appropriate subject
teachers. It is only three weeks before Term 1
reports will be sent home. Any concerns that
have been raised should be addressed before
then.

LIBRARY NEWS
Congratulations to Dudley from 3/4H for completing his Premier's Reading Challenge. Dudley is the
first student to complete and hand in his PRC Challenge sheet. Students have until September 5 to
read and record twelve books on their sheet. Medallions and certificates will be presented in fourth
term.
This week we are running a colouring in competition featuring characters from the soon to be
released movie ‘Mr Peabody’. Prizes will be awarded Wednesday of next week.
Thanks go to The Friends of the Library for organising a Mothers Day raffle, come and check out the
gorgeous gift basket prizes. Tickets are $1, available in the library with proceeds used on various
projects in the library.
Have you noticed our new library sign at the entrance to the gym car park? This upgrade reflects the
opening times which were altered last year. During the school holidays we are closed for Mondays
and public holidays. Therefore for the upcoming holidays we will only be open Tuesday-Thursday and
there will be no Holiday Happenings.
A bit of library lunchtime fun
