SCHOOL WIDE FOCUS - Connections


This term the whole school is focusing on one of the core values for St Thomas's School: Connections.
 
SELF: Our learning will begin with a focus on 'self' and then expand into common connections with other year 7&8 students. 
These connections could be a shared culture, country, language, street address, religion, sport, food etc.


NEW ZEALAND: We will then move our learning to New Zealand and its place in the world today. How does the world connect with New Zealand and how does New Zealand connect with our world?

GLOBALLY: How can we connect in a more constructive way to lessen some of the issues our world now faces around religions, refugees, war, elections, male and female equity?


KEY COMPETENCY

Our Key Competency focus for Term 1 is 'Relating to Others'. 

LEARNER DISPOSITION

Our learner disposition for this term is 'collaboration'. This is very much suited to our topic where students will work together and have shared responsibility, make important decisions and their work will be interdependent.


Parents and Caregivers are welcome at any time to be part of the learning for the term and we encourage family to be actively involved in both Home Learning tasks and those completed at school.
