Dear Parents and Caregivers

Thank you to Board of

Trustee Members

The Board election has now been

held. Congratulations to these

parents who have been elected:

Gail Dickson, Sarah Timmis, Rob

Berg, Megan Gowans, Travis White

has also been elected as the staff

that these people are prepared to

contribute to the governance of our

school.

The Board of Trustees also includes

myself, Annie Doherty, as the

Principal.

We also want to express our thanks

to our Board members who are

stepping down from the elected

board, but continue to support our

school in a number of ways. This

includes Alison Carswell, Marco Van

Gelderen, Trevor Milford and Nikki

Joubert who was our previous staff

representative.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

Promoting the IB

Student Learner

Profile

This week we will look at what it

means to be Principled.

To become principled, students strive

to act with integrity and honesty and

a strong sense of fairness, justice

and respect for the dignity of the

individual, groups and communities.

They take responsibility for their own

actions and the consequences that

accompany them.

Activities for Parents:

• Involve your child in

deciding on the rules for a

game or activity and then

ensure that they stick to the

ones that have been

decided upon.

• Encourage your child to play

games that involve teams.

Discuss with your child the

qualities of a team player.

What sort of person would

they want on their team

• When your child wins a

game, insist that he or she is

a well-mannered winner.

They might want to thank

their opponent or shake

hands with them if that is

appropriate.

• When playing a game, don’t

change the rules or let your

child win.

• Being a gracious loser is just

as important as being a

good winner.
