Development and Community
At last week’s Parent Information Evenings, I referred to the work of Judith Locke who is a well-known Brisbane based Clinical Psychologist, researcher and former teacher. I commend her books to you The Bonsai Child and The Bonsai Student, why modern parenting limits children’s potential at school and practical strategies to turn in around.
In The Bonsai Student Judith identifies 5 essential skills that all need to be acquired for life success, that is, to face life every day, to manage reactions, cope with challenges and ultimately thrive. She also claims that most issues arise for students because they lack at least one of these essential skills which are:
Although these vital skills are essential for life success, they obviously have an impact on schooling and academic achievement.
Please note for your calendar that Saturday 6 March is Open Day and it is a compulsory day for all students. We understand that some students will have unavoidable clashes on that day and will be unable to attend. If this is the case for your daughter, we require a letter indicating her inability to attend. Open Day is a great day for the students – where they engage in activities and/or performances to showcase the school to our visitors. We also welcome our current parents to come to the school to see the school in action from 9:30am to 12:30pm. Please feel free to bring guests to the school so they too can see St Margaret’s and the students and staff in operation.
Last week, it was lovely to meet many parents who attended the Primary and Secondary Information evenings at the school. Many reported that their daughters were excited for the year ahead and enjoying their classes and activities.
At the Secondary Information evening I spoke a little about St Margaret’s Way. Perhaps your daughters have mentioned the St Margaret’s Way to you at home? If you are new to the school, I’m sure that over the coming weeks you will be able to hear more about it.
The St Margaret’s Way underpins our culture, demonstrating a respect for those around us and ensuring that we notice everyone here at school. The vision of St Margaret’s Way is to ensure social and professional interactions between all within our community - students, staff, families - that foster a sense of belonging, coherence and well-being. The St Margaret’s Way is a set of values and behaviours to which all members of the St Margaret’s community adhere. It grew out of questions put to the community: How do I want to feel every day when I come school? What am I doing to ensure that others feel this way? The vision of this plan is to ensure social and educational interactions that foster a sense of belonging, coherence, well-being and accountability amongst staff, students and parents. Essentially it is a pastoral approach that is designed to give a language to the way we are and strive to be in our interactions with each other. It is a focused energy on wellbeing, noting that all within the St Margaret’s community have a role to play in the wellbeing of all in our community. There are two key focus areas - firstly we appreciate and acknowledge (each other, students, parents), and we are aligned and accountable (to ourselves, to each other, to the vision of the school).
I look forward to a year where our community can continue to embrace and foster the St Margaret’s Way.
Next week is Ash Wednesday which begins the journey of Lent. The journey begins with Shrove Tuesday, some call this day Pancake Day. Many years ago, this is the day Christians traditionally used up all their sugar, flour etc. as they prepared to fast during the Lent. Lent is a six-week journey which leads us from the Ashes to the Resurrection.
Traditionally, Lent was a time of fasting, of giving up something. Now days, people are also encouraged to think about what they could take up, things like being more intentional in being kind to others, sitting quietly and reflecting or being mindful. Lent is a time to allow ourselves to be a little selfish and find time for ourselves to delve into our hearts, and ask ourselves how is our relationship with God? How is our relationship with ourselves, and how is our relationship with the world around us?
This prayer, by John Birch is very fitting:
Inscribed upon our heart,
the maker’s mark,
the Word of God,
that all God’s people
that we are precious,
of a Loving God
becoming family together,
and may eyes lift upward
as we listen together
to hear angels worship.

Week 3 of Term 1 is always buzzing and everyone is now confident in their Term 1 groove and routine. It is also a week with much excitement in the air. This week, our Year 12 cohort is preparing for their school formal this weekend. We pause and reflect on this cohort and how much they have stepped up in their leadership roles and what a positive start of the year it has been.
Another highlight of our week in Boarding, is the ‘Lunar New Year’ celebration dinner. This will be held in Eton Hall with many staff also attending. We are so fortunate to celebrate all cultures and respect each others’ traditions. It will be a special night for our whole Boarding family to come together and celebrate with our International Students.
Our school values have been at the forefront of all conversations over the past few weeks, as we continue our long heritage of educating the whole student body in the St Margaret’s Way. The St Margaret’s Boarding community is a special one and we value everyone’s contribution.
In your daughter’s Academic Advising meetings over the past week there has been a lot of discussion about setting goals. Setting goals can sometimes be a daunting task when you have only just started the year and may be studying a completely new suite of subjects with new teachers. Therefore, your daughter’s goals may change or become more specific over time; however, the purpose of thinking about some goals now is to enable your daughter to focus her attention on specific areas of strength or weakness.
To set realistic goals, I encourage your daughters to read their Continuous Reporting comments from last year, think about their own study habits and consider the range of activities in their life they need to balance. You will have an opportunity to discuss your daughter’s goals with her Academic Advisor at the upcoming Parent Teacher Interviews.
Reminder to book in for an Academic Progress meeting – Year 12 (including ATAR Indications)
All Year 12 students have been invited to sign up for an academic progress meeting to discuss their Year 11 progress, goals for 2021 and ATAR Indications, if eligible. Many girls and parents have done this; however, many are still to book in for a meeting.
Meeting times are available before, during and after school and parents are most welcome to attend these meetings. Your daughter has access to the booking system through the POD to book in a time to meet.
Dates and time periods available are listed below:
Parent Teacher Interviews
In conjunction with Continuous Reporting, all parents have access to Parent Teacher Interviews twice a year (Terms 1 and 3). The Term 1 Interviews will be held with your daughter’s Form Teacher (Years 7 and 8) or her Academic Advisor (Years 9-12). The focus of these interviews will be to share with you information and the goals that your daughter has set with either her Form Teacher or Academic Advisor. Parents of Year 12 students will also have the opportunity to book times to see their daughter’s Year 12 subject teachers to discuss the progress of their learning.
This year, we are pleased to be offering both video and face to face interview options. On Monday 8 March, we will be holding Interviews via Microsoft Teams and on Thursday 11 March, we will hold face to face interviews in Eton Hall. Both sessions will run from 3:30-6:00pm and further information regarding bookings will be emailed to parents.
Term 3 Parent Teacher Interviews for Years 7-12 will give you the opportunity to meet with your daughter’s subject teachers. The Term 3 Interviews will be held on Monday 12 July from 10:00am-8:00pm. However, it is important to note you can contact your daughter’s Subject Teachers, Form Teacher or Academic Advisor via email if you have any questions at any time throughout the year.
Supervised Study Sessions
Supervised Study Sessions (SSS) will operate out of the senior Library on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Each session runs from 5:00pm to 7:30pm, with students having the option of purchasing dinner from the Boarding House for $10 (served at 6pm).
For students attending these sessions after an afternoon of sport, transport is available to and from Windsor Park. For those staying on after school to attend SSS, the senior Library is open until 5:00pm prior to the commencement of the study sessions.
Parents who book their daughters in via Flexischools can feel comfortable knowing that their daughters are receiving academic support, but are also interacting with peers in a physically and emotionally safe environment.
Dates for the 2021 Supervised Study Sessions are below (please note that bookings open the first day of each term):
Term 1: 1 February - 25 March
Term 2: 27 April - 10 June (except for 3 and 4 May due to the Day/Boarder Weekend)
Term 3: 19 July - 9 September (except for 11 August due to RNA holiday and 2 September due to the Student Free Day)
Term 4: 11 October - 18 November (except for 12 October due to Speech Night)
To book, parents will need to log into Flexischools and select ‘Supervised Study Sessions’. Bookings are limited to 25 participants each night and when a session is full no more bookings can be made. Bookings are essential and should be made in advance to ensure a place is available. If dinner is required, payment must be paid at the time of booking and this option selected in Flexischools.
During these sessions, girls work with tutors to organise a plan of study for the term. This involves students looking at their assessment calendar and planning how to ensure they are planned and ready for the next lesson and assessment. The main goal of SSS is to assist girls to revise work covered so far and support and extend their understanding of learning from lessons so they are prepared for assessment. It is important that students arrive on time and check in with the tutors to get their name marked off and then sign out when they are collected by their parents.
As part of the Pastoral Care Program at St Margaret’s, the school has introduced Beyond the Panama sessions for Years 10, 11 and 12 to provide the students with important and necessary life skills. Please see below, information from Ms Raniga who is coordinating this exciting program.
It has been pointed out time and again that schools don’t do enough in educating students about financial literacy and soft skills. At St Margaret’s, we have recognised this gap. Through Beyond the Panama program we will aim to upskill our students on financial literacy and soft skills so that our students feel more confident, compassionate and capable young women when they leave school…and beyond.
The Beyond the Panama program is designed to run as a three-year program, from Year 10 through to Year 12. The program will progressively build on each year. We’re in the process of setting up a POD page where information on all upcoming presentations will be provided, including any useful links and files for the girls to access. Parents and Teachers are also welcomed to join this POD page.
In Year 10, this program will be run during lunch times every fortnight, commencing this week. Our first task is for students to complete their tax file number applications. The schedule for the year ahead will be available on the POD.
In Years 11-12, Beyond the Panama program has been incorporated as part of the Pastoral Care Program. Last Friday, we ran our very first session on ‘Budgeting and Savings’, providing students with tips on how to budget effectively, including useful tips on savings. The Year 12s concluded this session by writing a letter to their future self, reminding them of the tips and advice they received during this session. We would also like to extend our warmest appreciation to Frontline Education for providing our girls valuable tips on interviews and CV’s.
Please tune into the POD for further details. We would love all parents and staff to be part of this journey together, supporting our girls to help them be everything they can be.
Last week at the Primary Parent Information Night, Ms Curtis shared the five essential skills for life, identified by Dr Judith Locke. Each week, I will unpack one of these skills in terms of what the school does and what you can do as parents to build this essential skill. This week, I will discuss resilience. In a nutshell, it is the ability to cope with difficulty and to bounce back in terms of social and emotional learning, cognitive skills and learning and physical wellbeing.
School role in teaching resilience
Social and emotional wellbeing - The development of resilience has always featured in our Pastoral Care Program:
The You Can Do It program identifies “inside characteristics of students”. The five foundations are getting along, organisation, persistence and confidence. Resilience is the fifth and sits as a foundation to the other 4 characteristics. In the Early Childhood Program, these characteristics are named and have accompanying puppets e.g. Ricky Resilience.
Cognitive Skills and Learning - classroom academic programs:
Physical wellbeing - camp/outdoor education, sporting teams, competitions - students are challenged to step outside their comfort zone with physical activities and physical education classes.
Parent role in teaching resilience
When a child is exposed to different situations where they experience discomfort, parents need to use it as a teachable moment to discuss ‘how to deal’ and strategies to employ, rather than trying to rescue the child.
Resilience helps children develop coping skills. They provide the cognition, behaviours and attitudes for making their lives in the classroom, playground, home and community happier and more productive. They also give life skills for coping with difficult times in their future careers and relationships. The skills include:
Together, as parents and teachers, we can influence a child’s ability to be resilient.
Open Day – Saturday 6 March
Open Day will be held on Saturday 6 March from 9:30am-12:30pm. This is a wonderful morning where the children have the opportunity to share their academic, cultural and sporting talents with family and friends.

Thank you to all girls who participated for their efforts. Thank you also to our conductors Ms Brennan, Mr Ng, Dr Syntageros, Mr Mackenzie and Ms Rayner for their hard work throughout the day.

Thank you to all parents who attended the meeting held this week. The next meeting will be held on Tuesday 2 March at 5:00pm in the Primary Music Room (second floor of Chaseley). Parents from both the Primary and Secondary Schools are welcome to attend.
Brisbane Girls Grammar School Invitational Swim Meet
The swim team, consisting of 105 members, participated in the first swim meet of the season at the Centenary Pool last Friday night. All girls were primed and raring to go after a team meeting and a carbo load of pasta, generously supplied by the wonderful Years 8 and 9 parents. Many of the girls not only swam extremely well with many recording a ‘Personal Best’, but the team also demonstrated exceptional team spirit throughout the evening.
This Friday, 12 February internal trials will be held at the St Margaret’s swimming pool at the conclusion of school. Details of these trials will be available via the Secondary Swimming POD page.
It was a super start to Water Polo on the weekend with St Margaret’s Swimming pool hosting the U12 Division for the Brisbane Water Polo competition. The school was absolutely thrilled to see the Water Polo community enjoying the pool.
Thank you to our Water Polo Support Group for their efforts on the BBQ at St Margaret’s.
Secondary Interhouse Swimming Carnival
House spirit will be on the line on Tuesday 23 February at the Valley Pool, as all girls swim, cheer and march for their House. All students are required to wear their House colours on the day which includes their House coloured polo shirt, PE skirt, coloured socks, panama and coloured swim cap for competition.
All girls are to report to their year level areas at 8:20am and wait for departure. Sun safe practices must be adhered to by applying sunscreen throughout the day and wearing a hat when not in the water. A good level of hydration should be maintained as well as sound nutrition for both morning tea and lunch. A charity barbecue and the Valley kiosk will be available for students to purchase items.
The focus of the day is enjoyment and fun within a safe and competitive environment, with students aiming to perform their best for themselves, their House and St Margaret’s.
Please note, due to the Valley Pool operating under the Swimming Pool and Aquatic Centre Industry plan, ONLY students and staff can be in attendance. Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this matter.
St Margaret's Sport acknowledges and values the important work that volunteers carry out within our sporting landscape. Whether you are a support group member, volunteer at a canteen, barbecue or at matches and competitions, it enhances the quality of your daughter's experience.

Matilda the Musical comes to St Margaret’s in 2021
As this year’s Drama Captains, we are very excited about an incredible event on the horizon. We are excited to present our biennial musical this year, especially given the uncertainties that plagued live performance across the globe last year and which continue to keep theatres closed in many locations. This year, the St Margaret’s community will be bringing Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical to the stage.
Since October 2020, students have been hard at work rehearsing and preparing what is sure to be a wonderful performance. The show will run from 18-20 March on campus, in a transformed Eton Hall. This much-loved musical featuring original music from Australia’s own, Tim Minchin is one for the whole family and not to be missed. Stay tuned as further information on ticket sales is released and join us on Open Day to get a sneak preview. We are very much looking forward to seeing you in the audience at the 2021 Musical.

School Photo Gallery and Image Consent for Your Child
Since 2020, St Margaret’s has used an online photo permissions platform – pixevety – to collect parental permissions for the use of your child’s photo. This was introduced last year. Recently all new 2021 parents to the school and any 2020 parents who have not previously updated their child’s permissions through pixevety would have received a letter from the school.
You would have then received a follow up email direct from pixevety, asking you to click on a link provided and register a free account with them which, when you do, will give you access to the St Margaret’s photo gallery. If you have been nominated as an ‘authoriser’ (one parent/guardian per child), before you can access the gallery, you will be asked to agree to or change the default consent settings applied to all St Margaret’s students.
There are a couple of key things to note.
The benefit of creating an account is that you will have access to a wide range of photos that are taken throughout the year.
Below is a screenshot of the 2020 highlight gallery:
If you have not already done so, we would appreciate all parents creating an account (by clicking on the link sent by pixevety) to enable you to update your child’s consent settings.
If you did not receive an email from pixevety, please email: email@example.com.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email me or call 07 3862 0837.
