YEAR 9 INTER-SCHOOL SOCCER 2017
The Year 9 Girls represented Collingwood College at inter-school soccer with pride and determination this week.
The first game saw the team lose (5-0). However, their sportswomanship and effort was triumphant in the face of adversity. The second game saw the team’s confidence return with a win (3-0). The back line remained crucial throughout the day and the forward line created multiple scoring opportunities. The third game was tough but the midfield worked hard to push the ball up the field. Fatigue was felt during this game and resulted in a loss (2-0). Fantastic team work saw the group win their final game for the day (1-0).
Enki, our coach for the day, provided strategies, tips and moral support.
I am so proud of you all. See you this time next year!

PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies) is an extensive and holistic program for encouraging social skills and emotional literacy in Primary and Secondary students. PATHS is designed to be used by educators and psychologists and effectively addresses behavioural problems.
PATHS was implemented in the Primary School at Collingwood College in 2014 and later adopted by the Lower Secondary School.
Lessons in the PATHS program are adapted to the disparate pedagogies within Collingwood College and include guidance in identifying and articulating emotions; appropriate emotional expression; interpreting social cues; controlling impulses; using strategies for problem solving; developing a positive sense of self and learning to value the perspective of others.
PATHS lessons often form the basis for rich class discussion and assist students of all ages to develop emotional intelligence.
The PATHS focus in the Upper Primary School this term has included conflict resolution; learning de-escalation strategies; stress management; and developing awareness and respect for divergent views and beliefs.
Please speak to your child's teacher about current PATHS lessons in their classroom.
