Remembrance Day

Today a group of students travelled to the Shrine of Remembrance for Remembrance Day.
A big thank you to all students who bought flowers along to help make our school wreath.
Two of our grade 6 students, Sarah and Shakiba laid the wreath at the steps of the Shrine during the official ceremony.

Resilience

Resilience comes in many different forms, and some young people have described it as:

  • Dealing with hardships and still holding your head up
  • Giving things a go or trying your best
  • Being strong on the inside
  • Being able to cope with what life throws at you and shrug it off
  • Standing up for yourself

 

Give examples of who you have to help you with the following:

I HAVE

  • People around me I trust and who love me no matter what
  • People who set limits for me so I know when to stop before there is danger or trouble
  • People who show me how to do things right by the way they do things
  • People who want me to learn to do things on my own
  • People who help me when I am sick, in danger or need to learn

What do you do to show that you can do the following?

I AM

  • A person people can like and love
  • Glad to do nice things for others and show my concern
  • Respectful of myself and others
  • Willing to be responsible for what I do
  • Sure things will be all right

How do you do the following?

I CAN

  • Talk to others about things that frighten or bother me
  • Find ways to solve problems I face

Grade 2 transition to grade 3 program

We have begun our grade 2 transition program.
Each week the grade 2 students will be visiting the grade 3/4 classroom and completing set tasks with them.
We are undertaking this program to assist our grade 2 students with their transition to the senior school. Skills to be covered will include, use of iPad and Stile. Encouraging independence during learning tasks and getting to know the students they will be with in 2015.
Grade 3/4 students will be buddies to the Grade 2 students and sharing their experiences in Grade 3/4.
Patents who are interested in finding out more about the program are welcomed to speak to Laura, Mulynda or Sonya
