Child Protection Curriculum
This term, all students are learning about relationships as part of the Child Protection Curriculum (CPC). The CPC is taught using age appropriate language, depending on the audience it is targeted to.
The Smith Family are running a program called TechPros on Monday after school this term. Students are led by a facilitator, organised through The Smith Family, to improve their IT skills, knowledge and build on their experiences. In session one students were assisted by mentors from Woodcroft College to improve their Microsoft Word knowledge. In session two students looked at keeping themselves safe online through various videos and then created a digital comic strip. The students are really engaged and are looking forward to improving their IT skills in the remaining sessions.
Port Power Tickets
With the assistance of the Port Adelaide Football Club’s Community Youth Programs and Variety Australia, we were lucky enough to send 2 students to the Port Power vs Adelaide Crows AFL Showdown. Jackson and James were fortunate to be chosen to represent our school. They were also involved in a media session, along with chatting about school and football with Port Power’s AFL player Darcy Byrne-Jones via video link.
Our students were given merchandise to wear at the game. The video was then shown on the big screen before the Showdown, along with being shared on Port’s social media site. Jackson and James said that they loved the noise at the game, the fireworks before the start, along with the crowd singing ‘Never tear us apart'. They also enjoyed Port winning. Well done boys on representing our school.
Labs N Life Program
Some of our students in room 11 have been working with some labradors during our Labs N life program. This program is designed to improve students confidence in training dogs, responsible dog ownership, improve communication, teach students to work as part of a team and solve problems with each other. Our students have gained confidence with the use of clear communication that must be displayed not only towards dogs, but also in day to day life.
