We had a great first day of school....

We had a fabulous first day of school yesterday! Our students spent the day meeting their friends and getting to know their teachers and routines.

At our first day assembly, we talked about our goals for the year and our hopes for ensuring a happy and positive school climate for all our children and staff. To do this, we see ourselves as a community. A community is built on relationships where we are always looking out or standing up for each other. We understand how important it is to develop our own self-regulation skills. We work at being kind and patient with one another and we get help when we need it.

Our Goals:  
  • To learn in a positive environment
  • To feel safe and secure
  • To succeed to the best of your ability
  academically - your studies
  emotionally - your feelings

  socially - your friendships and how you interact with others

Our Goals: How to Achieve our Goals? 
  • Take responsibility for yourself and your learning
  • Understand and accept the consequences of your behaviour and your choices
  • Follow the school safety rules
  • Have a Growth Mindset and always do your best!
  • Have fun!
  
Thanks Westminster!
