Our Promise To You
We start each year teaching a social skills program that aims to create a school wide common understanding of our school values focussing on the Play is The Way framework. Students quickly understand the acceptable ways we behave toward each other.They also develop class rules and are taught the skills needed to keep our school a safe and enjoyable place in which to learn.
The Play is The Way framework is based on the Golden Rule – “Treat others as you would like them to treat you.” Other aspects of the framework include:
- Be Brave – Participate to Progress
- Pursue Your Personal Best No Matter Who You Work With
- Have Reasons For The Things You Say and Do
- It Takes Great Strength To Be Sensible
Our PCW (Pastoral Care Worker), Fiona Vanderlinden, runs a well-attended breakfast club two mornings each week before school (Tuesday and Thursday), and offers lunchtime programs as an alternative to children playing outside.
