This week our class completed the SKIPS (Supporting Kids in Primary School) program.  During the program students learned about good mental health, types of mental illness and how they can best support someone with a mental illness.  Students were asked to complete a pre and post quiz to identify previous understanding and for us to see their growth in knowledge. Students who completed the SKIPS program were able to take home their work booklets today to share their learning with their families.

A huge thank you to Ms Field, our school counsellor and senior psychologist, who delivered this wonderful program to our students. Well done to all our students for their excellent participation and thoughtful contributions.

Children’s University: September Challenge

A reminder for all our Children’s University students that passport hours need to be finalised by the end of Week 9 (Friday 21/9/18).

Why not get a head start on the yummy September Challenge (below) or have a go at the Book Week activity.

September Challenge

Everyone loves to eat, and everyone has a meal that they love more than any other. How many of us know how to cook, though? Your challenge for this month is to prepare your favourite recipe and share it with us. When you share, make sure you tell us why you love this meal so much and include a photo of the finished product, or even some video footage! Remember to get help from an adult if you’re using dangerous utensils or equipment in the kitchen. Be sure to take evidence to your in school CUA Coordinator for a stamp in your passport. Time allocated is at the discretion of the in school CUA Coordinator. We can’t wait to see what you create!
