Our ‘Insight Handouts’ that are sent home with each weekly newsletter forms an integral part of our pastoral care strategy across the school. This together with our work through the school chaplain, school nurse, school psychologist, speech therapist and the diligent work of our Associate Principal who also coordinates with other inter-agencies such as Department of Child Protection, Department of Health and other government and non government departments all help our school nurture our children and forms a huge part in the promotion of their emotional and social well being.
I urge all parents to read these resources and to access the information on the Positive Parenting website.
A number of parents, through feedback, have asked if these resources can be placed on the web site as they have made good use of them in the past. Having them available on the website will allow easy access to current and past editions.
