PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

 

Hi Everyone - 

 

We’ve had a lot happening on campus this week including preparing for and wrapping up with the 24hr drum for our Indigenous Leadership students.  We are at a point in the rhythm of the year where we are starting to plan for the reflection and celebration of all of our learning for the year before we break for summer holidays, (7 more weeks).  We know that rhythm, routine and ritual  (the three R’s) create climates of safety and resilience for our kids. This weekend, as you march to the beat of your own internal rhythms, may you find space for reflection, appreciation, celebration, and even healing with your children. 

 

Reflection prompts for you and your children - 

What beat (activity, words, song, person . . ) makes your child’s heart beat and feet dance? 

What is bringing them joy these days?

What is something you appreciate about your child? How can you build appreciation into your routines? 

What rhythms of life, routines, activities and traditions bring connection, resilience, strength and healing to your child and family?
