Happy Free Dress Fri-Yay! Free Dress Friday is just to help us feel good. Our priorities as we move through term 4 are wellbeing and mental health. To reestablish the children’s sense of connectedness with each other and the school is of utmost importance. Over the next few weeks we will be hosting a variety of well being focussed activities both in and out of class to help the children reconnect.
Today is World Teacher’s Day - the perfect opportunity for me to extend my most grateful and heartfelt thanks to the teaching team at Parkhill. We are so lucky to have the best team of teachers here at Parkhill. They are committed to ensuring the wellbeing of every young person in our community and dedicated to meeting the learning needs of every student. I feel privileged to be part of this team!
SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING:
We continue to encourage the children to activate their voice through the use of our student support structures. One of these is the playground report system. The information we receive from our playground reports is well collated and shared with staff. The children are asked to tell us where and when things occur so that we can be responsive to their ever changing needs. Coupled with our teacher reporting system and student safety records, we are better able to help the children resolve conflict and build resilience. Please also remind yourself of our Community Essential Agreement, this can be found on the website – link below:
