Year 5 Science Morning

10 August 2018

On Tuesday the Year 5 girls attended the Year 5 Science Morning at Toowoomba Grammar School. The girls participated in a morning of science rotations with students from Fairholme and Toowoomba Grammar Junior.  Here are some of their reflections:

Science Morning was really enjoyable.The activity that I enjoyed the most was the mentos and coke experiment. Kate Roper

I enjoyed the Mentos Mayhem experiment. We had containers of water, lemonade and coke and put mentos into each drink. The water did nothing, the lemonade fizzed a little, and the coke made a big explosion! Charlie Alcock Reedy-Ayriss

I enjoyed making catapults at Science morning.  It was fun to see who could get on the ‘brag list’ for each test.  Most of the tests were harder than expected! Louise Anderson

I enjoyed making and testing catapults at Science Morning. We also made invisible ink using lemon juice. You had to dry your picture and put it under a light to see what the drawing was. Alice Sengaroun

This Week in Boarding

It’s been a busy two weeks in boarding with socials and dinners. Last weekend our Year 7 Boarders attended a junior secondary social at Downlands and our Year 8 to 11 joined in the Fairholme Boarder Bash the weekend before. We have held an etiquette dinner, birthday Tuesday and an Indigenous dinner in the Glennie Dining Room during the past two weeks. On Monday of this week, our Year 12 Boarders joined Fairholme Year 12s for a lovely meal and socialising. We get together twice per year for this function.

The pool is available for Sunday swimming, chess has resumed and so has craft. Brown House attended a weekend movie and we have outdoor activities planned for Saturday afternoon. All boarders will head to Junior Years for a BBQ Lunch as part of the GOGA Reunion Weekend. Tutoring is running again in boarding with the girls taking up the offer of additional homework support.

A Message from Mrs Cohen

3 August 2018

The universal wish of parents, when asked what they most desire for their children, appears to be that they are happy. The answer almost always comes without hesitation. And would it not be wonderful if we could all go through life happy, without a care in the world, all our worries lifted from us? There is, however, more to happiness than just “being happy”.

We all do need to care, we do need to feel sad when confronted with the images of homeless, wounded people after an earthquake; or the horror of going to bed with the thought of bombs and rockets raining down in myriad areas in the Middle East, or hearing about yet another high school massacre.

What I want for my children is that they are compassionate, empathetic and resilient all underlined by a sense of wellbeing. Yes, I do want them to be happy – but not all the time. I believe we put too much pressure on our children to be happy because, let’s face it: if they’re happy then we’re happy. What a burden for them to carry. We need to be very careful of focusing continually on how they are feeling as this could inadvertently amplify feelings of anxiety or sadness.

As parents, we often try to smooth out the bumps in the road before our daughters trip up. Yes, we may be trying to cushion them from the disappointment of failure, but are we doing them any favours? Should we not rather use these opportunities to teach them the value of failure; teach them to acknowledge the disappointment and determine how they might improve in the next attempt and the next. The relatively safe environment of school and home is the perfect place for them to learn these skills and thus build up resilience.

Too often when parents level the path for their daughters they are teaching them to be helpless because mum or dad will sort out any difficulties. As a mother I have felt the pain of watching my daughters struggle with friendship issues, poor grades, breakups and disappointments and I have had to resist the almost overwhelming urge to rush in and make it all better. I do this because they have to learn to deal with these challenges and I know I have to teach them.

More and more in our stressed and fast-paced world we find students tend to pass the blame for forms not signed, drafts not completed or poor results. It is so important our children recognise they are responsible for their own success, be it academic or personal. Throughout their lives they will come across classmates, teachers, colleagues or bosses with whom they don’t gel. They need strategies to deal with these instances, not escape routes.

Martin Seligman, the father of Positive Psychology - the study of the strengths and virtues that enable individuals and communities to thrive - lists five components of the concept of flourishing (PERMA):

  1. Positive emotions – happiness
  2. Engagement – being completely absorbed in activities
  3. Relationships – being authentically and positively connected to others
  4. Meaning – connecting to things larger than oneself
  5. Achievement – a knowledge of one’s genuine strengths

(Gostrengths.com, 2014)

 He states that as parents the emphasis that so many of us place on the first one comes at a cost to the other four. We would all do well – and through that, our children too – to take note.

A Message from the Deputy Principal

3 August 2018

The Problem of Popularity

We all worry about friendships, play dates, birthday parties, who’s in and who’s out. Sometimes we worry more than our children do. We want them to be happy and enjoy having lots of friends. We are sad when they fall out with friends and anxious when they make a friend we are doubtful about. Popularity is a minefield, for parents as well as children.

While many friendships don’t last long when we are young, the effects of popularity, or lack of it, can endure a lifetime. If you’re popular, you’re given more opportunities to practise social skills or gain access to new information. The flip side is that unpopular kids don’t get the same advantages.

When it comes in the form of likability and making others feel included and welcomed, popularity leads to good outcomes. Adolescents, however, tend to admire being cool, visible, influential and dominant, and kids who trade on status may vie for it as adults and fail to develop other important skills. As a result, they may be more likely to experience depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties or addiction.

Here are some thoughts about how you can help your children develop the right kind of skills. Of course, we need to model this to them as parents and ensure that we, too are seeking the right kind of popularity.

Move the focus away from status.
Stop liking, liking, liking, and counting your likes. Ask questions that encourage children to target real, quality friends rather than fly-by-nights. Offline, don’t convey to your kids that they need to be in a particular club or clique, rather that it is the quality of their friendships that is important. When you focus on ephemeral popularity, they won’t learn how to identify healthy, reciprocal relationships.

Address their desire for popularity.
When children are unhappy with their place in the pecking order, offer extra love, acknowledge their feelings and share your values. You can’t persuade them to not care, but you can try to understand why this matters to them. Remind them what they’d lose if they sacrificed their existing friendships to pursue popularity.

It’s difficult when a child wants to be popular, and there are no easy answers. Adults can point out that the most popular kids may also be lonely and lack trusting reliable friendships. We can never know what is really happening in others’ lives.

Focus on what they can control, such as being kind.
In every community, there are things that make you popular. If it’s a wealthy community, it might have to do with your level of wealth. If it’s a religious community, it might be about your parents’ status in the religion. You can teach skills that will make a child more likeable, but helping them attain status is trickier. By encouraging them to focus on what they can control, including being kind, you’ll increase the odds that they land the right friends.

Turn outward to find new friends and activities.
There’s a primal social impulse to be part of the pack, but children thrive when they think less about themselves and more about others. If your daughter comes home and says, ‘No one likes me’ or ‘Everyone is walking to lunch without me,’ turn the tables. Encourage them to invite that new student to lunch or to tutor a younger student. When kids transcend the self, they feel empowered and confident. Engaging in something bigger than themselves also helps them stop ruminating about unreturned Snapchats or their social position.

Cultivate good matches.
The unspoken rule of adolescence is that you’re supposed to interact with the people closest to you in the social hierarchy. The culture may value physical attractiveness or athletic ability, but your child may thrive in a setting that values academic achievement or community service. Look for activities that align with your child’s interests. Your child’s teachers and counsellors can suggest good friend matches, pair them on projects and reinforce social skills.

Teach them the skills they need to be more likeable.
Help struggling kids practise basic skills such as asking questions. Help them focus on connecting instead of impressing. Encourage children to identify common ground. If you’re talking about something that only pertains to you, it’s irrelevant to the friendship.  Are they wearing a shirt from a music group you like? Did they watch the same football game last night?

Some children may not know how to join a conversation. Show them how to slide into action without interrupting, and match the emotional tone of the group. When we look at videos of children who end up being the most liked, they listen to others and try to build on and shape what they’re doing instead of saying ‘No, that’s stupid, let’s do it this way’.

Learn from children who change often.
Children from some business families may move several times during their school years. Other students can learn from their openness. They may be more likely to approach a stranger in a crowded common room or to appreciate positivity over status. These children have figured out what works for them. They’re not trying to find a forever friend or a best friend. There’s a freedom to take risks on new friendships when you live in the moment. When the goal is to befriend people who are nice, the burden of popularity is lifted.

The best antidote to craving the wrong friends is finding the right ones and parents can help by offering transport or making their home welcoming.
