PB4L Report
Week 4

Bouncing back in a workplace can be hard to do especially when someone has overstepped or hurt our feelings. It can then be hard to brush it off and move on. Surprisingly, this is what we expect of our students at school. We ask them to say sorry, forgive and more on. Most of our students are capable of bouncing back from situations.

 

What happens between childhood and becoming an adult? Why do we, at times struggle?

 

This week I’d like for ask for your feedback and voice on how Staff at Heritage College can show resilience. Thank you to those who have filled out the survey in the past two weeks. It’s only a three question survey so please help shape the culture at Heritage College.

The Internet's Underbelly

 

“The digital world has made pornography accessible, anonymous and affordable, but for young people it can be damaging and disturbing. This episode focuses on accessing age-inappropriate content and unwanted contact.” (esafety.gov.au)

Mother's Day Community Walk

Our Year 5 students at NWS Campus took part in the Mother’s Day Community Walk at Casey Central Shopping Centre this week.

 

Students were so excited to share their respect to all Mums for their amazing contribution to our lives. What an uplifting service activity this was for our students who received hugs, compliments for their manners and a general warm fuzzy feeling inside for their generous deed.

Electric Gate Works

Works are well underway with foundations being laid and cabling going in for our new electric gates at NWS Campus.

 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused as we upgrade our front gates which will make for a safer work environment for our staff working outside of regular hours.

Construction Zone

Creative juices are certainly flowing in our new campus Construction Zone. Students are loving the new play space, including the occasional splinter and abrasion:) It’s great to see them working together to create interesting structures, and then pull them all apart to start over again.

Needed for the Secondary Art Room

The Secondary Art Room is in need of newspapers and plastic bottle caps (rinsed) from drink containers of any kind.  We would love to receive any bottle caps in ziplock bags making them easy to collect.

 

Thank you in advance for your donations.

This week sees all Years 3, 5, 7, and 9 students across Australia sitting standardised Literacy and Numeracy Tests.

 

These tests provide just a snapshot of where our children are at and inform our planning and teaching in the classroom.

 

Congratulations to all our students who stayed calm and did their best during this week of testing.

Mother’s Day Celebration At Kinder

Last Friday, the kinder opened its doors to welcome and celebrate all the mums who have played such an important role in shaping our young children. After sharing a special morning at chapel the mums were invited to enjoy some morning tea and hot drink. Then the pampering began!

 

Mums were treated to a lovely hand massage before the children showed off their artistry with some advanced nail painting skills. The concentration and determination to get the nails just right for mum was a way that we saw the children express their gratitude and was one of the highlights of the morning.

 

The fun however had only just begun. We dressed up the mums and their children in funny costumes and props and posed together for a special photo memento to be cherished for years. Then provided the opportunity to wind down with some shared colouring before gifting mum with their presents that were worked on tirelessly to show mum just how much she was loved.

 

What a great morning we had! Thank you to all the mums who attended and who have played such an important role in the lives of the children in the early learning centre. It is truly a blessing to work with your children and share a special relationship with you during the process. We hope you had a great Mother’s Day! You’re all doing a fantastic job!
