Dear Parents,

Graduation

Wow what an amazing night it was celebrating our Year 7’s graduating from primary school. I don’t believe there was a dry eye in the house. We couldn’t be prouder of Aleesha, Brandon and Jazmyn and the risks they have taken to improve their skills, challenge their learning and to continuously step outside of their comfort zone. On behalf of the school we wish you all the very best for their next chapter, stepping into high school.

Principal Position

I am very excited to have received a letter of appointment as Principal here at Rapid Bay until the end of Term 1, 2019. I have really enjoyed my time as Acting Principal in Mark’s absence and am looking forward to starting the 2019 year.

School Camp

Our school camp to Ankara is less than 3 weeks away. Attached is our program and what to bring. As you would be aware the cost of the camp is $70 which is hugely discounted thanks to RATCH. Please contact the school if you would like to discuss payment options and plans.

Integrity

My favourite definition of integrity is that it is ‘doing the right thing because you know it is the right thing to do.’ It is essentially having a moral compass that guides you in your decisions and actions. It is a crucial part of developing the personal and social capabilities of our students, enabling them to become successful citizens.
Some ways we can help develop integrity in our children are
  • Present them with moral dilemmas and guide them through the choices and consequences of possible actions
  • Develop a moral vocabulary
  • Focus on intrinsic rewards for effort rather than extrinsic
  • Create a classroom culture of integrity, where students make strong choices because it is the right thing to do
  • Build self-belief in your child. Children with self-confidence will be more likely to have the strength of their convictions to make good choices in difficult situations
