Great, Week 8!

We are Learners…

The reporting period for semester one is well underway and this is a great opportunity to celebrate all of the learning achieved this year. As well as celebrating the successes, it is important to utilise this reporting time to consider where growth can be achieved for the remainder of the year. Take time to start talking about some of your child’s learning achievements for semester one and what learning in semester two might look like. Our teachers are always happy to discuss your child’s learning, please contact them via email with your queries or to make a time.

We are Responsible…

In the secondary year levels, our students become much more responsible for getting ready for learning. This includes preparing good food to fuel them for the day and wearing the uniform correctly. We would like to ask that parents support their children to take responsibility for their readiness for learning, by checking in and ensuring that they have brain fuelling food in their bags and that they are wearing the correct school uniform.

We are Respectful…

We have a tremendously respectful community at PCC. It never ceases to amaze me how considerate and caring members of our community can be towards each other. Nothing helps us get ready for learning better than a sincere ‘good morning’, ‘how are you?’ or ‘are you okay?’ What seems simple and easy, can make a huge difference to our lives. Take time to be present with each other and lean in.

We are Safe…

Having discussions at home about being safe are crucial to the development of our student’s ability to make safe choices when not supervised by an adult. Talking about safe choices and options for social situations that teenagers encounter. Talk about the challenging topics of alcohol, smoking and even vaping. Discuss the dangers and empower our children to make informed, healthy choices. For more information, again, speak with your child’s teacher.
