Student Welfare

Seasons for Growth - Successful Groups - Time to Chat - Relationship Support

This important aspect of a child's growth and development is supported by various programs that the school runs. These cover the needs of children as well as offering regular parent sessions or evenings.

Two staff members focus on student well-being with individual or in class support as negotiated. Children may be involved in the garden project as a place to work and talk or they may be involved in more structured programs such as 'Seasons for Growth' or 'Successful Groups'.

Janine Panagiotou and Simon Wundersitz  each take a particular interest in student well-being.  

God created us all as unique individuals and has a special plan for each of our lives.

Through care, prayer and a range of planned activities each child is respected and valued as they move through their learning journey.

SLEEP

Healthy children learn better.

Over the past few decades the focus has been on eating a healthy diet and regular exercise. A good nights sleep is also paramount to your child’s health. Primary School children who have sleep problems or have late nights have trouble with their school work and behaviour.

Here are some suggestions that parents and carers can do to help their child get a good night sleep.

• Have regular bedtime and wake time (this shouldn’t be more than an hour later on weekends and during holidays

• Have a good bedtime routine (read to younger children or let older children listen to relaxation music)

• Children’s rooms should be quiet and dark and not too hot or cold

• Reward good night time behavior

• Avoid caffeine based drinks (coffee and coke)

• Avoid spicy or salty foods in the evening

• Avoid any scary movies, computer games and rough play before bed

• Remove TV’s and computers from children’s rooms \

Children aged five to twelve need 10-11 hours of sleep per night.
