On Monday, when our families were enjoying the last day of the holidays, our staff was back at school doing some learning of their own.
We spent time finalising our Pedagogical Commitment which demonstrates to all our ongoing commitment to our students and their learning. This is available for viewing on our website or via the link below.
I ran a session with staff where we delved deeply into the reasoning behind behavioural choices of our students. We watched a TEDx talk presented by J Stuart Ablon who has worked with families and schools for more than 25 years, tackling challenging behaviour. I share this with you because a lot of what he said resonated with me as a parent as well as as a teacher; his experience has led him to believe that 'Kids do well if they can.' As a concept, this sounds incredibly simple, but I encourage you to watch the talk and let me know your thoughts. If you've ever had that morning battle with your child about getting ready or the afternoon battle over screen time, I think you will find this interesting.
