Class Jobs

These learners are Mr K's right hand. You must be very responsible, have good attendance, and exemplary behaviour. Your primary job is to oversee all other classroom responsibilities. It is your responsibility to make sure all tasks are being completed to a high standard. You may be asked to report back to Mr K at any time if students are not performing to expectations. You will be expected to greet visitors as they enter the classroom and include them in whatever task is being completed. At the conclusion of the term, you will be involved in interviewing and hiring for all open classroom jobs, training learners in their new roles, and setting expectations. You will also be responsible for any miscellaneous tasks assigned by Mr K. This may include running errands, monitoring the class, handling duties of an absent student etc. This is a job that requires dedication, leadership and a great deal of self-management. 

Cubby Custodian
As a Cubby Custodian, you are responsible for making sure that all tote trays are taken to desks and bags are placed neatly, with the exception that a student is absent. You need to check that all shelves are organised, neat and in the right place. Once break has ended, inspect the bags: If any lunch boxes or school bags are open and/or left out of the cubbyholes, ask the owner to come and put them away properly. After a lesson, check that all resources are returned to the correct area and are stacked tidily. At the end of the day, make sure that all tote trays are back in the assigned spots. Tidy cubbyholes and bookshelves and check for rubbish. Once you are satisfied that everything is neat and organised you may go home.

This position is for two responsible people who set the bar high for everyone else. Whenever the class is attending focuses, team hui etc., these people will lead the way and represent our class. These two representatives will also be team captains (or responsible for selecting captains) when we’re out for class games, and when we’re doing anything in a sporting matter. When our class is travelling around the school, the captains will lead the lines for the class to follow. The qualities that are needed for this job include: respect, leadership and having self-control. You must also be able to manage your time efficiently, have confidence, and be able to create a pathway for others to follow.

Tech Heads
You are responsible for setting up all technological equipment required for a lesson as instructed by Mr K. It is your responsibility to turn on the Activ Panel each morning to load up the class blog and informer. Vice versa you are required to log out and then shut down the computer at the conclusion of each day unless instructed otherwise by Mr K. Throughout the day you will be required to ensure that the Activ Panel is switched off when not in use or is refreshed when it falls asleep during class time. You must also ensure that the Electricians have put the laptops are on their chargers. You must be punctual each morning, responsible, have good attendance and excellent ICT skills. 

Daily Informer and Notices

You have to be organised a responsible to have this job. You have to make sure that Mr K has added the 'promotion' for Day 2 each cycle, as well as basketball information. You have to make sure the page is refreshed before you read it out. Before you start reading, make sure all the students are quiet and listening. You are to make sure students are receiving notices that they need and are able to get them to those who may have missed out.

Fashion Police
The fashion police’s job is to check for school uniform requirements daily. To do this, as the class line up at different times during the day you must check their uniform. You must check for the following: only stud earrings in these colours, navy, silver, gold, black, white, green and jade, they also have to check for if you have your bottom button on your top is done up, uniform can’t be worn with mufti you either wear one or the other, your socks also can’t have any logos on them and your hair ties have to be the required colours.

If students are consistent in not wearing the correct uniform, you are to report to Mr K in order that he might send a note home.

Homework and Agenda Generals
Your responsibilities include checking homework before it goes to Mr K as well as making sure all agenda books are signed at random days. Every day you will be required to load the 'daily agenda' on the ActivPanel and discuss it with the class before it is written up. This will require you to be diligent at completing your own homework and having a perfect Agenda book layout.

Book Worm
Being a book worm is a dedicated job that includes organising the classroom books so that they sit in their assigned shelves for the next person to use. You are required to return books for the other students promptly and without question. You will make sure that the books in class have no 'dog-eared' pages and no rips or split seams. If any of these do occur, you must be able to handle the situation and be able to find the person needed to fix the books. They may also be asked to pick books to read to the class, and they may need to read information to the class when asked. You will have to decide on what books our classroom should have on the shelf to benefit everyone, as well as changing the books at the library when needed (be careful to select books that cater to the whole class).

For this job, you have to be a good and sensible photographer. You are responsible for bringing your own device to school every day. During the school day, you need to take your device with you around the school to take photos of school work e.g teaming, tech/arts, class work etc. But before you take your photos, you need to ask for permission from the people you are taking photos of. At the end of the day, you need to be able to upload all those photos to a classroom drive folder. That way students can collect the photos for their portfolios and Mr K can use them for the class blog.

You are responsible for correct the use of the lights, appropriate usage of the heater (after consulting with the teacher), and making sure that no students sit less than a metre from the heater. You need to make sure that the windows are only open at appropriate times, e.g. only one window open when the heater is on. You also help the Tech Heads whenever necessary, like when they are away, and helping Fire Wardens, and during lockdowns, securing windows and doors, and turning off the lights. You must also make sure the laptops are properly plugged in and charging, and that they are locked away at the end of the day. You also need to make sure that all the lights and the heater are off before you leave after school.

Desk Directors

At the end of each day, you must walk around each of the desks and ensure that all rubbish and any classroom materials are all in the right place. 

Fire wardens are responsible for helping Mr K in closing the doors and windows. When you close the windows, make sure that the top ones are fully closed, also make sure the sliding windows are closed properly so they are locked. This will minimise the exhaustion of CO2 and intake of oxygen. Check to see that both doors are closed. Join your partner at the front of the line.

Organisational Officers
You are responsible for passing out all class papers and books. Additionally, you may be asked to assist Mr K in distributing classroom, lab, IT materials.

The big blue bin will need to be outside every morning. At 3pm, the bins will need to be emptied by the caretaker's shed. The blue bin will be brought inside at the end of the day. When we have teaming or Tech Arts, these students will be responsible for making sure another class can do our bins for us. You will also check for rubbish around the outside of our classroom.
