From the Principal
   The start of the 2020 school year has been unusual.

   The school closure yesterday due to the impact of extensive rainfall over the weekend was not a decision taken lightly and I
   greatly appreciate the inconvenience this can cause. I am very pleased to welcome everyone back onto campus today.

   Thank you to all those who have offered assistance to the school during this time - it is greatly appreciated. For those of our
   community who have been directly impacted by the floods be assured of our thoughts and prayers.

themselves for such a long period of time. Our thoughts and
prayers are with all who have been part of this experience.
As we commence the year, it was wonderful to see so many
parents at school attending our welcome assemblies and at
the Sunset Social. I would particularly like to welcome all of the
new families to our school community. We also have some new
staff who we welcome to the school:

2020 is shaping up to be an exciting year at St Paul’s. This year
we will be surveying all our stakeholders to get feedback that
will shape our new Strategic Plan. We will also be striving to
roll out our Master Plan, which aims to provide new learning
environments and facilities across the school. I am looking
forward to working with you on this exciting journey.
We pray for God’s blessing on our school as we commence the
year and look forward expectantly to all He will do in this place.

Congratulations to Year 12, 2019 for their Outstanding
Academic Achievement
It is with great pleasure that we can begin the academic year celebrating the success of Year 12, 2019.
From our graduating class of 2019 the Dux is Kirsty Lavender, achieving an ATAR of 98.70. Kirsty has been accepted to study a
Bachelor of Engineering (honours), majoring in Biomedical Engineering with a Diploma of Professional Engineering Practice
under a Women in IT and Engineering faculty scholarship at the University of Technology.
Combining HSC and IB scores, 14 students achieved ATARs above 90 (19%) and 37 students achieved ATARs above 80 (48%)!
University and private college course offers are still being made, but feedback so far is that, as in previous years, most students
were offered places in their first choice of course. We are also very pleased that a number of our students have been accepted as
apprentices and are enrolled in TAFE courses whilst others take the opportunity to have a ‘gap’ year. We congratulate all of our
outgoing Year 12 students and wish them the very best for the future!
Some parents have asked about the information from the school regarding HSC results release and are unaware that NESA
only releases subject results to schools. Information regarding HSC scaling and ATARs is not provided to schools. To access
this information St Paul’s employs a statistician who recently met with senior executive staff to confirm that 2019 results were
consistent with previous years. A full outline of the HSC and IB Diploma results will be published in the annual school report later
this year.
I would also like to welcome new and continuing students back to a new academic year. I encourage students and parents to
continue to contact the school to discuss any questions or aspect of concern regarding academic progress. Please contact
classroom teachers in the first instance if you have any enquiry about your child’s progress.

Secondary School Curriculum Contacts
If you have any questions about Secondary School Curriculum please feel free to contact me, especially with
regard to NESA Year 11 HSC and IB Diploma curriculum and assessment questions.
Dr Mary Robyn continues to be responsible for NESA and IB MYP middle year’s curriculum and assessment, so any curricula
or assessment questions for these years should be addressed to her. Dr Robyn also oversees the Secondary School Library. In
the Junior School, Mrs Corinne Day as Deputy Head - Curriculum has overall responsibility for Junior School NESA and IB PYP
curricula.
Mr Matthew Berg continues as the Coordinator of Learning Enrichment, answering questions regarding student inclusion and
support in the Secondary School.

Secondary School Appointments
A number of appointments have been made in the Secondary School this year.
Mrs Julie McDonough’s role has recently changed regarding International students. In addition to looking after homestay, her role
now also includes greater responsibility for the provision of International Student pastoral and academic support.
A number of new teachers have also joined St Paul’s due to growth in Years 7-10, where the school is now four streams
throughout. These teachers have all had significant teaching and/or other experience at their previous schools. Mrs Casey Taylor
joins the Language and Literature faculty, Mr Nicholas Storm joins the Design faculty, Mrs Valerie Huston joins the Language

Acquisition faculty, Mrs Ruth Dunn joins the Inclusion faculty as an English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher, Mrs Amanda
Brotherton joins the Sciences faculty and Miss Heather Bray joins the Physical and Health Education faculty whilst Mr Anthony
Kelshaw remains on leave. Miss Kate Ridge continues a maternity leave position in this faculty whilst Mrs Patten remains on leave.

Online Classes, my.stpauls and Timetable Structure
Student timetables are published on my.stpauls with class pages allowing students to engage in activities for the
class.
These are updated throughout the year as students commence new units of work. Parents are able to access aspects of class
pages, allowing them to support student learning.
Class composition differs from year to year. Year 7 classes are all mixed ability, colour coded to enable students and teachers to
distinguish between classes. In Years 8 to 10, one class has been created with students whose average academic achievement
across a range of subjects in the previous year placed them at the top of their year group. Other classes in these years are of
equal academic composition. These classes will be reviewed at the end of Semester One. Elective subjects, including languages
other than English, are formed based on student choice. Mathematics classes are based on the specific Mathematics curriculum
requirements in Years 8-10.
Year 11 and 12 classes are based on student choice within the restrictions placed by NESA or the IB.
Further information regarding Years 7 to 10 may be found at the Middle Years my.stpauls page.
Further information regarding Years 11 and 12 may be found at Senior Years my.stpauls page.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any teaching or learning enquiries.

Our new team of prefects will soon be helping our Junior
School staff run the Swimming Carnival on Monday, 24th
February. Our prefects always do an exceptional job of
instilling plenty of enthusiasm and house spirit into the day as
well as providing invaluable help in running activities such as
the novelty events. The Secondary School Swimming Carnival
takes place this Friday, 14th February at Oasis Swimming
centre in South Windsor.
All our students have settled into the school year well from an
academic perspective, with Year 7 coping particularly well to
the changes associated with starting Secondary School.

  Speech and Drama report by Music Academy Tutor Lyn Sibley
  With great pleasure and pride I watched my students from St Pauls Grammar School participate in the Australian Speech
  and Communication Assoc. (ASCA) Examinations on the 9th November at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre.

  They all excelled. Geoffrey Norris topped the marks with 94% for Senior Grade 4. Mohammad Ahmed received a High
  Distinction for a Senior Grade exam. Richard Norris and Daniel Schouten can now sign letters after their name now they
  have been awarded the Certificate of Communication.

  It is always gratifying to see all the hard work my students put in over the year be awarded excellent results. Their
  confidence and self-esteem is always reinforced when they stand in front of an audience and give a well-presented speech
  or story. Not only do they give the speech but have the opportunity to speak and answer questions spontaneously about
  the speech and their ideas. The poetry section introduces everyone to new ideas, words and the creative thoughts of
  others. It is always entertaining when they present a favourite novel - talking about it and reading part of it aloud.

  Congratulations to you all. Here are the results:
