Learning Styles

How do you best learn?

Today in 3/4CA we completed a “Learning Styles Inventory” to discover the different ways that we can learn in a variety of situations. The goal was to find out if your preferred method of learning is VISUAL (by watching), AUDITORY (by speaking and listening) or KINESTHETIC (by moving or doing). 

Interestingly the majority of our class were “Visual Learners.”

You could try completing the online test yourself, it’s easy- just go to Learning Styles Inventory.  

When you have discovered your preferred style, please comment below and tell us how you best learn!!

Parents in School

 

It has been a very busy first month back and I thank parents for supporting all our extra curricula activities. The following is a snapshot of parent/ school events:

Prep parents tea and tissue, beginning of year mass, Andrew Chinn concert, Prep welcome mass., swimming trials, parent/ teacher conferences, Prep faith night, parent helper training, 3/4BM class mass and puberty education night. 

 

Prep Faith Night

Last night the preps had their Faith Night. We were lucky enough to have Helen as our speaker who gave the preps the opportunity to draw a God moment. All the drawings were beautiful and this activity showcased our preps understanding of God. Thank you to Helen for your knowledge and to the parents who came to this evening. 

Here are some photos of the night.
