Champagnat Project Parent Forum
Our recent Parent Amalgamation Forum was again well-attended and provided an opportunity to share updates with families surrounding our preparation for the Champagnat Campus. The theme was Positive Education, with key leaders sharing their insights into the program that underpins our classroom practice and dialogue. Information surrounding Positive Education along with key points discussed at the forum can be found in the Champagnat Campus Update section of this Hearts Newsletter.
Parent Teacher Meetings
Parents and teachers gathered this week to open dialogue about learning and student progress. Parent Teacher/Learner Meetings are an important occasion where our girls are encouraged to engage in conversation with their parents/caregivers and teachers about academic strengths and opportunities for growth moving forward. We value these evenings and the support of our families in their attendance. We continue to be grateful for our shared partnership. If you were unable to connect with one of your daughters teachers this week, please send them an email or contact our Reception on 8179 4400. Our teachers will then make contact to discuss your daughters learning.
Last week we gathered as a Marymount community to launch the 'Bullying No Way' campaign as well as a number of student driven initiatives. The MLG facilitated the assembly and shared their experiences and work to date. The girl's passion for injustice and wellbeing was clear as they articulated their thoughts and ideas with confidence and conviction. In the last fortnight our MLG, YEP and SHAKARE groups, with the support of our teachers and counsellors, have raised awareness through the following initiatives:
Herd for Hope
Walk for Water
Close the Gap
Bullying No Way
Acts of kindness Jars
Easter cards and gifts for Townsend House.
Social outreach is a lived reality at Marymount Campus and I congratulate the girls on their commitment and student driven initiatives.
