Building Resilience and Awareness

Midway through the term, we were delighted to introduce parents to the Connected Parenting presentation by Lael Stone from the Resilience Project. Her passion involves supporting parents to understand their children by developing an emotional awareness of their needs with the fundamental principles – connection and compassion. We were extremely pleased with the attendance of parents from both Minimbah and Penbank who all commented on the value of the presentation. Through Body Safe and other teaching practices, engaging in emotional literacy is integrated through all that we do. I thank you for your contribution to the evening.

Inspiration and Creativity
At the heart of learning is the ability to create. School Meeting this term inspired our imagination, allowing children to perform and share their learning. We are often in awe of the talents of our students and congratulate all children on their individual achievements. At an early age, the passions and interests of children emerge, and it is wonderful to see the children’s excitement as they enthusiastically launch into the school day. For staff, the love of our work inspires us as we work together to ensure the children are learning in the best possible way. Our inclusive approach engages our children in Real World learning, developing, and motivating our young people to have the knowledge, skills and sense of purpose that enables them to thrive and contribute to a better world.

The significance and quality of the experiences provided to our children are due to the commitment of staff who diligently plan and execute the work of our school. I thank all staff for their dedication and commitment to the learning environment at Penbank. It is truly an amazing place for children to learn and grow.
