Children and the parent volunteers who are attending camps will receive a bundle of consent/health forms today or tomorrow. Please return the completed forms as soon as possible so that teachers can summarise the data well in advance of camp. Thanks to all the parents who have volunteered their help for the EOTC week activities.
We have decided to trial the extension of After School Care, to Before School Care, which will operate from 8am-8:30 daily commencing Monday 15 February. If you would like to book your child into this programme please contact Rebecca – $3 per session. The children have settled into their new After School Care programme very well – thanks Dee for the time and effort you are putting into the planning for each session.
We continue our focus on ‘Caring for others and our place’. We are following the Principles of Positive Behaviour for Learning, teaching children the steps that need to be followed to ensure everyone knows what behaviour is expected. For example, before children go to lunch, teachers are teaching the following steps: Wear your school hat; apply sunblock; get your lunchbox; walk to the lunch area; stay seated to eat lunch; wait for the teacher to release – hand up; sort worm farm scraps into bins; walk to put lunch box away; pick up sports equipment; walk to the play area. Whilst these might seem common sense, we realise that children do not automatically understand the steps to follow. We are finding that our lunch area is more settled – a testament to the processes we are following which clarify expectations for our children. We are developing and teaching similar school wide processes for caring for our playground sports equipment, reading in class after playtime etc.
Kia pai to wiki – have a good week. Ka kite, Sharon
