After the school holidays, it is lovely to return to school and see happy smiling faces.
At our school assembly, we regularly celebrate student achievements and look for ways we can encourage our students to be the best they can be.
A young Foundation (Prep) student was recently awarded a 'Student of the Week' certificate for bouncing into class on the first day back and proudly telling his teachers he can now count to 109 (no small feat for such a young man!). However, his teachers did not stop there... in conjunction with recognising his efforts in front of the whole school, they had also given him the opportunity to show off his new skill in front of the class and encouraged him to count on even further (which he could!).
Our love of mathematics is contageous!
(Or as the old saying goes... if you don't feel that way - fake it 'till you make it!).
Our enthusiasm for the growth we see in our students makes them glow!
I am sure you have many creative ways of appreciating your students' many talents in all areas of the curriculum. If you feel like sharing... feel free to leave a comment or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
