Little Ways Play Group

This Friday the first gathering of the Little Ways Play Group will happen at 9.00am in the Music Room under the Library. The play group is open to the wider community and the gathering of the local mothers and toddlers should have a wonderful time together. This is an opportunity to reach out to others of different faiths and build community. Ms Tess would love mums and toddlers to join the group each Friday morning at 9.00am. in the Music Room.

 

A Generous Community

posted 12 Dec 2016, 16:26 by Denise McKiernan   [ updated 12 Dec 2016, 16:27 ]

Parents be proud of your children.  Two weeks ago the Mini Vinnies members supervised the St Vincent De Paul Christmas Appeal.  They went into the classrooms explaining the needs of others and asked for donations.  The children from Kinder to Yr. 6 raised $167.  A wonderful response, keeping mercy alive in our hearts.  I am constantly touched by the generosity of families in our community.  Your children learn from you and your giving to others.  I thank you.

At this Friday’s assembly, the Mini Vininies members are presenting a SPaR (stop, pray and reflect).  Their thoughts, feelings and reflections on helping others are put into this presentation of ‘HOPE’.  If you can attend, you will be delighted by their commitment to our community and the wider community.  Come and write GENEROSITY, GIVING, HELPING on a mercy heart to put on our ‘Tree of Mercy’.  I will be outside the hall to assist your from 2pm.

God bless our families, Tess Family Educator

PBL's at St Therese School

posted 8 Feb 2015, 19:33 by Danielle Lewis   [ updated 29 Mar 2017, 20:31 by Denise McKiernan ]

In 2015 St Therese’s School has embarked on a new program of student management called Positive Behaviours for Learning (PBL)

 What is PBL?

Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) is a whole school program that actively promotes positive behaviour. It enables students to develop a clear understanding of required expectations, become responsible for their own behaviour and work together to create a positive, productive and harmonious learning community. Our school-wide expectations are represented with a bee: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Be a Learner. 

PBL is a data driven program. Therefore, what we learn from the data, such as, specific inappropriate behaviours which we need to address, affects what we do throughout the school in PBL. Each week, the school will have an area of focus that involves explicit teaching and support of positive behaviours. Teachers and students will participate in lessons that involve discussion, role-play and reflection. It is important for the students to be able to identify what each behaviour looks like, feels like and sounds like, so that they can respond appropriately to requests and directions.

Our school-wide PBL focus defines our expectations for all settings at St Therese’s Catholic Primary School.
