Dear Parents and Caregivers, Konnichiwa!
Whole school swimming program
This week the year 3 and 4 students have participated in the 5 day swimming program at the North Adelaide Aquatic Centre. This is part of a whole school swimming, surf safety and aquatics program for every child. Having skill and confidence in the water is fundamental for every Australian. For the Grange community, being so close to the beach it is perhaps even more critical.
I was fortunate to be able to attend and see each year 3/4 student and their class actively and enthusiastically participate. Over the 5 days the children made much progress, had fun and developed strong confidence in the water.
A teacher from another school at the pool today said to me “I want to come to your school” upon seeing our well behaved students. This positive student behaviour was certainly demonstrating and living the school values of
* Being kind
* Showing respect
* Giving best effort
The positive behaviour is due to the work and support of our parents, the close collaboration with teachers and our teachers that provide an engaging, differentiated and structured learning environment to explicitly teach, encourage and enable positive behaviour. A great team effort!
