Last night we had an excellent turnout for our first Community Evening. This event was held as a culmination of our Positive Start Program.
Throughout the first seven days at school we have covered lots of things that we hope help your children settle back into school routines.
The school values have been an important part of this program and we hope that the children now have a better understanding of each of these values. Hopefully last night they showed you the anchor charts that we have worked on that show the behaviours we will demonstrate for each value.
Your children have all set SMART learning goals and are already working hard to achieve these goals. They have begun working on a poster that displays their strengths and today they started learning about different learning styles (you can read more about this in the posts below).
We have discussed Habits of Mind, You Can Do It and Smart Learning Behaviours (your child has all three of these glued in the back of their diary). I have been amazed at the Smart learning behaviours that the children are already showing and look forward to watching them develop throughout the year.
It was great to see so many parents attend and to see the children so excited to show you their new working space. I hope you all had a wonderful evening and were able to see how hard the children have been working in their first seven days at school!
