Students start and finish each school day in Advisory. This gives them time to plan, time to prepare, time to review and time to reflect, etc. But more than that, the advisory is a time for students to be exposed to a wide range of ideas, interests, skills, and experiences. It is the advisory teacher’s chance to inspire, provoke, bond, organise and make the learning come to life. The role of the Advisory teacher is central. They help students to manage their time, plan their work and internships, and complete community service projects. They work with parents, family, mentors and other staff. Advisory teachers identify the particular learning needs of their students and support each individual through their learning journey.
It has been fantastic to see such interest in the new Dental Bus program we
have recently made available. Oz Dental have given us an extension and we are
able to still accept forms for families to take advantage of this valuable service
until August 31st. We require 50 children who are interested in this service to
go ahead. At this point we are 9 children short of this target. Please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org to notify us of your interest (if you have not done so
already) to enable this to go ahead.
Please see page 10 of the latest newsletter for further information.
