Proposed Industrial Action – Thursday 29 November 2018

I am writing to inform you that the Australian Education Union (AEU) is in the process of balloting its members in government schools and preschools to determine support for a ½ day strike on the morning of Thursday 29 November 2018.

The department has been advised that this ballot will not close until 4pm Monday 26 November 2018.  Schools/preschools will be able to communicate the impact of this action to families from Tuesday 27 November.

Should members of the AEU vote to undertake industrial action, the impact this action will have on program delivery at individual schools and preschools will vary depending on the number of  members taking industrial action.

Once this is known, I will work quickly with our Education Director to determine whether adequate standards of child/student safety and welfare can be provided and whether this school/preschool will either be:

  • Open – with usual education programs, or
  • Open – with modified/limited education programs, or
  • Closed – with no education programs available

As soon as this decision is made, information, including what time usual education programs will re-commence on the day, should this be necessary, will be communicated to enable you to make any necessary arrangements. 

Please contact the school/preschool if you have any questions regarding this information.

Regards,

 

Rob Shepherd

Principal

TRANSITION/ORIENTATION PROGRAM 3 December 2018

As an introduction to Le Fevre High School we invite our new students to our Orientation Program for the 2019 enrolment. This Program will provide students with an understanding of the procedures and expectations of the school.

The Orientation Program will be held at Le Fevre High on Monday 3 December 2018.

 On the Monday morning students are asked to assemble at the flagpole at the front of the school at 8.35am. Students will need to be in their Primary School uniform. They will then be escorted to the gymnasium where they will be placed in care groups and will meet some of the teachers they will be working with next year.

During the day, students will undertake ‘orientation activities’ to familiarise themselves with the school including: –

  • taking part in guided tours around the school
  • a range of ‘getting to know you activities’
  • taking part in lessons
  • having their ID photos taken

Recess and lunch can be brought from home or purchased from the school canteen.

Dismissal will be held at 3:15 pm. At the end of the day, students can be collected from the front of the school or can make their way home by bus or bike as agreed by parents. A bike rack is available, but students do need to lock their bikes at the rack for security.

We look forward to meeting you at the Parent Welcome Night, 6pm – 7pm on  3 December 2018. We will be providing an overview of expectations /addressing questions. You will be able to meet Care Group teachers and other students. Pizza and beverages will be supplied.

Computer Cut Wingfield supports student learning at LFHS

The Stage 2 Design and Technology class would like to formally acknowledge the generous support of Computer Cut, Wingfield in the supply of time, labour and materials in supporting the learning outcomes of students. Students in the class are studying the impact and role of advanced technology in the design and manufacturing process of engineering products. Autodesk Inventor Sheetmetal was used to create 3D models which were prototyped from 3mm MDF which was laser cut using our Epilog Laser Engraver. The final product was to be Laser Cut from 3mm steel plate. Contact was made with Tony Brister from Computer Cut who was able to support the students achieve this outcome. Student files were sent to the company which were job set ready for production. Last Thursday members of the class went to the factory to watch the process and view the range of advanced technologies available.

Providing students with these links to industry establishes a vital context to their learning. The generosity of Tony and Computer Cut cannot be underestimated. The experience was invaluable to the students who were in awe of the fact that Tony had donated his time, resources and materials to the students of Le Fevre High School. On behalf of the school I would like to thank Computer Cut for their generous support of this course.

Le Fevre High School presents Brisbane

Le Fevre High School presents Brisbane’s Gun Tampion

Le Fevre High School is a local school with a maritime focus offering Naval Engineering and Maritime Trades Engineering courses to its students. The Maritime Trades Engineering course draws students from local partnership schools to gain TAFE accredited competencies, including exposure to industrial workshops and the development of employable skills.

Due to this maritime focus, Le Fevre High School has developed a partnership with the AWD Alliance and the Royal Australian Navy in which they are responsible for the manufacturing of the Tampion for the three air warfare destroyers (AWD’s).

The Tampion is a ceremonial cover for the barrel of the AWD’s Mk 45 Mod 4 5” gun that is displayed when the ship is alongside. It is made of marine grade stainless steel, chromed with a brass-etched Brisbane badge on the front.

On Wednesday 15 August 2018, the group of students responsible for the manufacture presented the completed Tampion to Brisbane’s Commanding Officer, Commander Josh Wilson, in a presentation held on the bow of Brisbane. Following the presentation the students were invited to tour Brisbane and enjoy a morning tea with Commander Wilson and the ship’s company in the Commanding Officer’s cabin.

Manufacturing of the Tampion took the students approximately one school year. The Le Fevre students previously presented the Tampion for HMAS Hobart in July 2017, and will also be involved with the manufacturing of the Tampion for our third destroyer, Sydney.
