ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL'S REPORT
CHILL OUT ZONE
The new Chill Out Zone in the Junior School area (opposite Junior A) has proven a hit with the students. I've even caught a few parents chilling out in there!
This space enables students a place of quiet reflection, access to sensory tools for calming and relieving stress and also has a variety of quiet activities - games, playdough, puzzles, mindfulness colouring etc.
Thanks to the wonderful work of our PFA and some generous donations, we have been able to provide a really wide variety of these resources so there is always something different for the students to use when they are in there.
The Chill Out Zone (COZ) is staffed most lunchtimes and is also utilised by our wonderful integration aides and teachers for individual or small group work during class times.
If you haven't had a chance to see it yet, please do drop in and have a look.
FROM THE OFFICE
This week has progressed well at OSHClub, with the introduction of a few new ideas such as, Star of the Week, Milo Mondays and Jelly on a Friday afternoon. The focus of the week has been on the theme of 'Empathy' with special games designed to test how well the group can put themselves in other's shoes such as 'Detective', as well as an emphasis on understanding each other during times of conflict.
Next Week (6th Nov – 10th Nov )
Due to the potential for some good weather to roll around next week, we've decided at OSHClub to make the week's goal 'Health and Fitness', utilising the outdoor play areas as much as possible, and learning about healthy food through some creative activities.
