Dear Parents, Carers and Students of MPWPS
Our first group of 5/6 campers are almost home. I am imagining some quiet homes will tonight be full of stories, wet clothes, shoes and socks casualties from the snow trip. Please remember how tired children can be dramatic, and support a smooth re-entry dinner on the couch of course!
Camp is a wonderful opportunity for children to start on that road to independence with some of those roads being bumpy and some smooth. Please acknowledge and celebrate that your child has been away from you and the trusted family for four nights. Listen to their stories of high adventure. Remind them they have been able to manage themselves, their personal belongings (mostly) and bounced back from times when they would have missed home and their families. All of the campers returning today have achieved success and as their Principal, I acknowledged and celebrate their experiences. They are now on the road to being resilient young people. Welcome home campers!
Our next group leave on Monday and I know they are excited, as I have witnessed some of this excitement in the Library where groups of children have been working on their Red Faces scripts. I will be waving them off on Monday so hope to catch you all there.
