As the midway mark for Term 3 2022 rapidly approaches, we see Semester 2 well underway with a huge range of creative and engaging learning opportunities across the site. While COVID is still having an impact upon our staff, students and families, we have managed to continue our full timetable of teaching and learning. I thank you for your continued support with regard to keeping your children and young people home when they are unwell, as this reduces the chances of a major spread.
As you would be aware, Term 3 is a particularly significant time for our senior students. Once again, I wish our senior students well as they enter the crucial home stretch for 2022. Many of our staff will be offering their ‘catch up’ services during the next holidays and I recommend utilising their support. For Year 12s, this is a very important time and they may need an extra push and some understanding from home and school to maintain their motivation and stress levels. In terms of the graduation, Larah Stieg has been negotiating with venues as to the most appropriate and COVID friendly event location. More details will be communicated very soon.
To support the positive school values culture of the school, the Primary, Middle and Senior Years cohorts recently held separate assemblies to acknowledge and celebrate students who consistently demonstrated Respect, Resilience and/or Responsibility during 2022. Students were presented with a range of awards that ultimately reflected their positive attitudes to school life and learning achievements.
It’s Mid-Term Checkpoint time again, where feedback is sent home to families regarding their children’s learning achievements and attitude. It is intended to be a quick ‘check in’ that also enhances a sense of partnership between school and home. We hope that this regular process begins many conversations both informally and at parent teacher nights.
As you would be aware Monday 22nd August was a Student Free Day. Other dates to note are:
- Thursday 8th September – OVC R-12 Sports Day. We welcome family attendance but if you are unwell or have any COVID symptoms please do not attend. Masks are recommended (but not mandatory) and social distancing is encouraged even if outdoors.
- Friday 9th September School Closure Day (Show day).
- Friday 30th September last day of term (2:15pm early dismissal).
Deputy Principal's Message - Key Information for Parents/Caregivers
YEARS 7-12 MID-TERM CHECKPOINT
Mid-term Checkpoint reports will be posted home to parents/carers on Friday of this week (26 August). This report will provide a ‘snapshot’ regarding students’ learning progress in each of their subjects. The Mid-Term Checkpoint report features a traffic light system – Green for satisfactory progress, Amber for partial progress and Red for minimal progress. In addition, there will be information that should highlight other factors that may be contributing to the overall academic progress of the student. The contact details for each subject teacher will be included.
As our goal is to work in partnership with parents/carers, we strongly encourage direct contact with specific subject teachers or the student’s mentor teacher. Early intervention is vital to support student success at school. The Mid-Term Checkpoints reports will arrive in the post sometime next week (depending on the efficiency of Australia Post). Reports will also be attached to DayMap for parents/carers access.
STUDENT FREE DAY (Monday 22 August)
Differentiated Instruction was the focus of the professional learning for teaching staff. As a learning community, we developed a deeper and consistent understanding of differentiation and the impact on student learning outcomes, engaged in the latest research around differentiated instruction and reflected upon our current classroom practice to determine the next steps in our improvement journey.
We are very appreciative for the work and support of Rachael Craig, Curriculum Lead Flinders Park LET, who skillfully led our professional learning and thinking throughout the day.

Primary Years (Reception-6) Update
It has been a busy year so far in the Primary Years! As well as great learning going on in the classroom we have been participating in various sporting events; the 4/5/6 girls participated in the Crows Cup AFLW and had a fantastic time, the year 5/6s have been working with the Port Power Community Programme. Miss G and the year 5/6 basketball teams competed against 7 other schools at the Western Zone SAPSASA basketball carnival. All players did a fantastic job and made OVC proud! The U9s soccer team have been playing some great soccer and having fun at the same time!
BOOK WEEK EVENTS
On Wednesday the 24th of August, the OVC Primary Years students and staff celebrated Book Week. The theme for 2022 was Dreaming with Eyes Open, this theme is about stepping into your own story, listening to country as the first storyteller and learning from friends who help you on your way.
We began the day with an incursion, The Wonderful World of Roald Dahl. This vibrant performance included the stories of the Enormous Crocodile, The Twits, The BFG and James and the Giant Peach. Some of our talented budding actors were able to join in on the presentation and did a fantastic job in doing so.
During lessons 3 and 4, all students participated in a book week parade and shared class presentations. Everyone did an exceptional job of presenting their creative class pieces and made their teachers very proud. Several prizes were on the day to the following recipients:
- Best Class Participation: Ms Amy’s Class
- Most Creative Presentation Years R-3: Ms Switala’s Class
- Most Creative Presentation Years 4-6: Ms Harris’ Class
- Best Dressed Teacher: Mr Jenkins
Overall, the 2022 Book Week celebrations were a huge success! We wish to thank all caregivers for the effort that was put in to organising the wonderful costumes. Although the magic of reading can take you anywhere, all OVC staff agree they wouldn’t wish to be anywhere else.
This week we had an assembly where some students received awards for demonstrating our school values: respect, responsibility and resilience. Carleen M (Fiel) earned the merit award for being an exemplary role model to all of her Primary Years peers.

High School - Middle Years (7-9) Update
What a fantastic first semester our Middle Years students have had. Our Middle Years has grown to close to 240 students which has meant an increase in the number of classes and opportunities available to our students. We have been incredibly proud of the resilience our new students have shown in their transition to High School. Our Year 9 students also showed excellent determination in their commitment to online learning early in the year. While Covid-19 disrupted many of the start of year events we normally run at the start of the year we still have much to celebrate and acknowledge.
In the first term our Mentoring program focused on developing a strong connection to the school and for our new students helping them to navigate the many changes that come with being at a new school. This has included induction to the many ICT Systems that are required to access the learning at OVC, our new whole school wellbeing program called Open Parachute, and some career education to get our young people setting goals and thinking about their futures.
Despite the disruptions of COVID- 19 we have been really pleased to see that the vast majority of our students are regular attenders at school!
- In year 7-21% of our students have had school attendance above 90%
- In Year 8-19% of our students have had school attendance above 90%
- In Year 9-22% of our students have had school attendance above 90%
In addition to this we have a record low number of unexplained absences across our Middle Years. This is due to the fantastic work of parents in keeping us informed when their child is going to be absent from school. Regular and timely communication has also assisted us in supporting students that are struggling to attend early on and before it becomes a bigger issue. The image below highlights the impact missing a day here or there can have on a young person’s schooling over an extended period. If you require any assistance regarding school attendance, please contact your child’s Mentor Teacher in the first instance.
We are privileged to work with a dedicated team of teachers and support staff that work hard to meet the diverse learning needs of our students. Pleasingly academic achievement in the first semester is very positive with 75% of students passing their core curriculum. For students that are struggling to be successful with their learning we have implemented a range of interventions to assist including, literacy support through Multilit and SPARKS (reading conventions), the addition of Quicksmart Maths in Semester 2, Maths Homework Club run by our STEM Team and our Learning Club run by the Smith Family. In addition to this our Mentor Teachers also assist students to set goals and work in collaboration with students and families to monitor the progress of these goals throughout each learning cycle.
SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING
Social emotional learning is paramount for young people’s growth and development, especially during transition points of a student’s schooling. A number of our year 7 girls have had the opportunity to take part in girls groups this semester. During girls groups, students practice the social emotional learning skills of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making in a fun way. As the girls take part in activities in a relaxed setting, informal conversations allow staff to hone in on said skills through redirection and reflection on lived experience. This semester has seen the girls make slime, tie dye tops for sports day in their house colours, paint pots and propagate their own plants, amongst other activities. We look forward to new students participating in and benefiting from girls group in semester 2.
We are fortunate enough to be a part of The Smith Family’s Growing Careers Project. This partnership allows our Middle Years students to experience Careers Education early on in their schooling. By exposing our students to different careers, pathways, and opportunities early on, they have more insight and direction for when it comes to critical subject selection. This semester our Middle Years students have taken part in River Journey (where students are prompted to map their education and futures) and Flash Mentoring (where students have met with tertiary students and professionals who have shared their own education and career journeys). Student feedback has shown these sessions to be helpful, especially for our year 9 students who have just completed their subject pre-polling for year 10 in 2023.

High School - Senior Years (10-12) Update
YEAR 11 MENTOR GROUPS
This semester Year 11 Mentor Groups have spent a great deal of time working through a mental well-being program. Some of the focus areas included goal setting, problem solving, and asking for help when necessary. The openness of the students was very impressive as they shared issues and offered assistance to others. They also nominated leaders for Student Voice and worked collaboratively to address some issues at our site. The Year 11s also initiated a yard clean-up program where all Mentor Groups across the site were allocated a specific area to keep tidy. This has resulted in a much cleaner yard for our students and guests. Again, this is an outstanding result, achieved through sharing thoughts and putting an idea into action. Hopefully the holidays are enjoyed, but the Year 11s must also remember there is a lot of work to do for successful results.
This photo reflects the outcome of a wager between Skye T and Mr Groff regarding the recent Showdown between Port Power and the Adelaide Crows. As the Crows lost, Mr Groff had to wear a Port Power guernsey for the day on Tuesday after the Pupil Free Day. Skye arrived nice and early to make sure Mr Groff had to endure the loss for the maximum of time. The spectacle of Mr Groff in something other than an Ocean View College shirt kept many scratching their heads. Well done to Skye for putting her pride on the line and we will see what happens in the future between our local sides.
SENIOR SCHOOL NEWS
The SATAC books, a collection of university and TAFE SA options for next year, have been delivered and given to our Year 11 & 12s to take home. Please take the opportunity to look at these and discuss options with your child. The information includes lists of prerequisites, assumed knowledge, what each course covers, the mode of study, whether the course can be deferred, last year’s lowest Selection Score as a guide to what this year’s may be. There is also a number to call for further information at the end of each course explanation.
Year 12 parents will soon be contacted to arrange a meeting or phone chat about the SATAC Application process (applying for tertiary Studies next year) or a check-in about post school “Next Steps”, whether that is an apprenticeship or employment that students are heading towards.
The Year 12 breakfast will be held on the Tuesday 15th November at 7:00am. This is a special event arranged for our students, as an acknowledgement of their commitment to their studies. This will be followed by our Farewell Assembly at school. The Graduation Ceremony is scheduled for Monday 21st November.
Year 11s have recently completed their first Stage 2 compulsory subject, Activation Identities and Futures (AIF). Our Research Project teachers took on this new subject in a SACE Board pilot. “Students will follow their own unique interests and ways of thinking to progress their understanding and learning. Instead of following the usual methods of research, students will come up with their own ways to solve a problem.” – SACE Board.
Similarly the Year 10s have also completed the new version of the Personal Learning Plan, Exploring Identities and Futures (EIF), which investigates the skills and dispositions needed for developing self-agency and answering the question of “Who do you want to be?”
Week 3 Tuesday 9th August students lead the Senior School Assembly which was a celebration of what the senior cohort had achieved over the last 2 terms. Academic achievement and learning growth were acknowledged. Students were also awarded a Values Award for upholding our school values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience.
While we have a dozen of our senior students undertaking Vocation Education and Training (VET) at other schools for one or two days a week, we are running the Certificate ll in Kitchen Operations in the OVC kitchens on Mondays. The students look like the real deal in their new chef uniforms and are gearing up to participate in the VETiS World Skills cooking competition in September – something like a mini Master Chef competition.

Well done to all year 7-12 students who participated in the students with disability basketball carnival. The team performed well, winning 4 games and drawing one. Throughout the day the team displayed our school values and showed everyone the fighting OVC spirit. Thanks to all staff and students who were involved throughout the day.
Group activities included Space Jump, small script performances with limited preparation time, and performing a scene with just an image.
In week 5, students then competed against one another in a range of Theatre Sports games with 100% attendance and involvement. The event was a hit and especially because it was also their first time EVER performing to a large peer audience. The students were so thrilled and proud of themselves. The audience and staff members were blown away!
We are now focusing on our performance for the School Arts Evening. What a happy and proud moment it was for all. Our cheeks and stomachs hurt from all of the laughter. A huge thank you and well done to the Middle and Senior Inclusive Education Students!!
INCLUSIVE EDUCATION VOLUNTEER WORK
In Term 1 and 2, the Inclusive Education Middle and Senior School classes have been undertaking volunteer community work at the Ocean View College Children’s Centre. In collaboration with the Pre-School Director Kelly Squire, our students have been tidying their garden, sweeping, weeding, maintaining the cubby house, clearing and preparing mulch for the garden beds, and planting succulents. Our students have also grown spinach, spring onion and kale from seeds and will establish a vegetable patch for the Pre-School students and our students to use for cooking.
In class, our students have been learning principal work skills and transferring this knowledge through their volunteer work. They have so far focused on accessing the community safely, workplace safety, team work, responsibility, showing initiative, honesty, respect, being a good role-model and leadership.
The students are looking forward to sharing with their families the succulents and vegetables as they grow, and cooking new recipes to taste.

NIINA MARNI (“Are you good?”)
After a few quiet years due to COVID, Reconciliation Week 2022 was back. This year’s theme was: Be Brave! Make Change! Our passionate teachers structured lessons that incorporated Aboriginal perspectives. PE teachers taught Aboriginal games while the Home Ek teachers cooked meals incorporating native ingredients. Uncle Eddie Peters taught students songs that incorporated Torres Strait perspectives, and Uncle Michael O’Brien performed a Welcome to Country at the Junior School assembly. The week culminated with a feed of doughnuts representing the Aboriginal flag.
FREE Dental at your child's school
The “My school dentist” program provides onsite mobile dental treatment & education for your child.
This is a FREE dental check that will be at OVC on Tuesday 13th September 2022. Consent forms must be back by Tuesday 6th September 2022. If you would like more information please contact 82481244.
Children's Centre Update
The children have begun Term 3 full of energy and ready to continue exploring their environment. There has been lots of snails and worms, which have provided opportunities for the children to get their hands dirty as they dig and unearth creatures buried under leaves and in the soil. There has been lots of conversations around the importance of returning creatures to their home, where they feel safe and secure.
We had an exciting discovery in our veggie patch recently. Each year, sweet potatoes come up in our garden. When we digging around, we noticed something popping out of the ground. When we pulled it up, it was a very BIG and strange looking potato. We presented it to the children and discussed what it could be. Some guesses were; a rock, a pumpkin, giant onion and a potato. We are planning on cutting it open to see what it’s like inside. We will compare it to a ‘normal’ sweet potato!
We have been very excited to go over to the school library each Wednesday fortnight.
Ms Annie reads us a story and the children are able to borrow a book to take home and share with their family.
We are now beginning the enrolment process for 2023. If you have children aged from 6 months to 4 years, please pop in for a visit or give us a call (82483670), to find out about our amazing playgroup, occasional care and preschool programs. If you have any friends with young children, please let them know too, or direct them to our Facebook page.
Its been a busy start to the Term for the Clontarf Academy here at Ocean View College, with camps, morning trainings and afternoon activities in full swing right from the start of the semester.
The Clontarf Foundation exists to improve the education, discipline, self-esteem, life skills and employment prospects of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men, and by doing so, equips them to participate more meaningfully in society.
Already in Term 3 we have had our Year 10, 11 and 12 academy members take part in our SA Regional Employment Forum, focusing on both part time and post school employment pathways. Employment plays a major role in our programme here at Ocean View Clontarf, and the Annual Employment Forum gives our young men an opportunity to talk to our fantastic partners about the many roles and pathways available to them if they complete their schooling. This year, the young men participated in ‘mock’ employment interviews to practise their interpersonal and communication skills, work site visits to a few of our partners and their sites including Flinders Port Holdings, the Australian Defence Force, AGIG and Fulton Hogan, and a ‘speed dating’ type forum where each student spent time talking and learning about 8 different partners and their various roles and responsibilities. We also had time for some fun with Go-Karting, Laser Skirmish and an Indoor Cricket and Soccer Session. A huge thank you to the following partners who participated in the busy four days: SA Water, Oz Minerals, Fulton Hogan, BMD, Flinders Port Holdings, Suez, Bunnings, Blackwoods, Kmart, Woolworths, Coates Hire, AGIG, Office Works, ADF, BHP and Peak Irons.
Upcoming camps for Term 3 include the Year 9/10 Port Augusta Basketball Carnival in Week 5, and the Year 7/8 Woodhouse Adventure Camp in Week 7.
Morning trainings and afternoon activities have also made a triumphant return this term, with OVC hosting SA Water and Suez to a morning training session in Week 3. We look forward to hosting Oz Minerals in Week 5, and Bunnings in Week 9. Morning trainings are a great part of our programme, with the early starts creating positive habits for our academy members, further preparing them for life after school. Starting at 7am on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, the Clontarf bus is picking up our young men from 5:30am for an hour of fun and inclusive games and sports, followed by showers and a hot breakfast. If you would like to come along, please get in contact with the school. Afternoon activities so far have included 10 pin bowling, attending the Yipti Yartapuultiku Naming Ceremony for Port Adelaide’s Aboriginal Cultural Centre, and a job site visit to Coates Hire in Albert Park.
Upcoming Clontarf Events for Term 3 include health checks with Watto Purrunna Health Service, a visit from Headspace Port Adelaide, Big Day Out excursion days for our senior and junior academy members, and involvement in the PAE Council naming event for the Kaurna Laneway.
Our young men are able to participate in these fantastic activities by committing to their education, maintaining high school standards, and achieving more than 80% attendance throughout the school year. A big congratulations to the young men involved in Clontarf at Ocean View College, who currently have an average attendance across the 32 enrolments of 82%.
If you would like some more information regarding the Clontarf Programme here at Ocean View College, please get in contact with Peter Rolfe or Kelvin Maher, by calling the Ocean View College front office on (08) 8248 1422.
