Teacher Movements Year 5 Red – Semester Two
Ms Lucy Zambonetti, will be taking long service leave for Semester Two. As a result, Ms Melissa Heaver will be transitioning into the teaching role for Year 5 Red for Semester Two. Ms Heaver is an enthusiastic and nurturing teacher who is excited to join the Newman College community. Ms Heaver has recently been working in Mercy College and is passionate about providing engaging learning experiences that meet students where they are at, whilst also promoting growth. A thorough handover process has been put in place to ensure that Ms Heaver has a strong understanding of all Year 5 Red students before her commencement in the role. As part of this handover process, Ms Heaver will be in the Year 5 Red classroom on several occasions before the end of term. Ms Heaver is looking forward to getting to know the Year 5 Reds and their families and as such will co-lead parent-teacher interviews this term. Ms Zambonetti has very kindly agreed to hold the parent interviews this term so that she can debrief with parents before her long service leave.

Code of Conduct
The Keeping Safe Child Protection curriculum is a program that spans from 3 years up to Year 12. Our College delivers this curriculum during classroom teaching, and through the Wellbeing Programs and Health curriculum.
As a Catholic community we are committed to educating the whole person. In order to do this, we need to ensure a safe, supportive and engaging environment. The basis for this environment is that all in the community model what healthy, respectful relationships look like. The Code of Conduct is the definitive guide to the behaviours we want to model to, and expect from, our children and young people. We want to create a culture that assists our children and young people on their learning journey. We can only achieve such a culture in partnership with all who participate in our community. The Keeping Safe Child Protection curriculum is a program that spans from 3 years up to Year 12. Our College delivers this curriculum during classroom teaching, and through the Wellbeing Programs and Health curriculum.
A reminder to all families that the Code of Conduct can be accessed via the College website. The Code is mandated by Catholic Education Western Australia and the application of the code extends to all staff, students, parents, guardians, caregivers and volunteers.
Any perceived breaches of the Code can be discussed with a member of the Senior Leadership Team. As always, if students ever need support, they are encouraged to contact their Leader of Wellbeing, a College psychologist, Counsellor or classroom teacher.
The Code seeks to value the dignity of every person, foster positive relationships, ensure confidentiality and accountability and supports professional boundaries. Events held during school hours, and those College associated events outside of school hours are also supported by the Code of Conduct. Additionally, postings on social media platforms that identify the College or College events are bound by the Code of Conduct. We thank you in advance for your understanding and look forward to a positive partnership that supports our students, your children.
