Our neighbours came for a visit. Mr Thomas eventually took them home.
Alessia Campagna and Keeley McLeod are our 2015 Values Captains. One of their responsibilities is to update the Values Board. This term they have focused on the Values of the term, some definitions of bullying and how to meditate.
The Values this term are: kindness, confidence and assertiveness.
Alessia and Keeley also give out the Values awards every fortnight and are responsible for making sure all staff have enough Bee cards to give as rewards.
Congratulations Alessia and Keeley on a fantastic job.
Mindfulness Meditation has been scientifically shown to help keep the mind fit and healthy and help students do better at school.
At the next Closure Day on Friday, 30 October the teachers at St Charles Borromeo will be learning how Mindfulness Meditation can be used in their classes with Georgina Manning.
The staff from St Charles Borromeo Catholic PS (Templestowe, Melbourne) were still smiling after a BIG day of spelling on Monday. Well done! (Sorry I didn’t get all of you lovely people in the shot-I need a wide lens). It’s great when a whole school comes on board with a consistent spelling approach. #teachingspellingworkshop
A fantastic morning where our grade 5s from 5/6I shared stories, jokes and learnt from their buddies from Roseville. Conversations flowed with lots of laughs. Some residents said to me that this was the best day and they look forward to seeing the children. Many thanks to Amanda for preparing them so well and Shellie (Angie’s Mum) and Sharon (Emi’s Mum) for joining us.
We have extended our Be My Buddy Program to also include Bupa Templestowe, as well as, Roseville Retirement Village(who have been our buddies for 10 years). Today was our first time together and all involved had a wonderful time. Many thanks to Susan Camilleri and Anne-Marie Hardcastle who helped with our visit.
On March 20th we celebrated the National Day against Bullying and Violence. Our Values Captains, Alessia and Keeley, organised a great day. We started with a whole school assembly where we watched Alien Adventure. We worked with our buddies to create our Take a Stand Together Wall and we shared morning tea.
