Expectation for week 1 & 2 - I am Respectful: respect people, property, places.

As tricky at this concept can be for little learners, the explicit teaching over the past two weeks of the term happened a little easier than anticipated.  Teaching opportunities were amplified based on the spate of break-ins and damage that had taken place to our school over the holiday period, showing the lack of respect to others' property and place, then the flow on effect to the respect of people.  On a simplified and more positive approach, we teach our students "Give Respect = Get Respect."


 PAUSE Update

This first fortnight, we have begun revisiting Pause lessons from throughout the year and drawing upon the needs of individual classes and students.  Many classrooms have visited the first lessons on the brain; the parts of it and its function.  Some classrooms have been focusing on gratitude and what we can be grateful for each day.


Reporting Issues
At MSS we encourage students to report lunchtime issues to the staff members on duty. This ensures issues can be resolved in a timely manner and with the support and guidance of an adult.  If your child is informing you of issues at home, please let us know and encourge all of our students to report issues to staff immediately.


Timeout
Timeout at lunchtimes will continue for students in the unfortunate circumstances that Mareeba State School expectations are not met.  In timeout, students discuss with staff their behaviour, why they have been given timeout and how to correct the behaviour and to make better choices.  Parents/carers will receive a text message to inform that their student has been in timeout that day.  Please discuss this at home and if you have any further questions, contact the school.
