Yr 1 – Outing to Popeye Village

Yesterday year 1 students went to Popeye Village. The outing was related to games and play. Play is essential for a child’s emotional, social and physical development. Through play children work out who they are and how the world around them works: Play helps children to develop confidence and self-esteem. Here are some photos of the event:

Today all the teaching staff from Kindergarten to Primary attended a professional development meeting as part of the CoPE Session.

We discussed the power of storytelling as our school will be participating in the programme: Storytelling Schools. It was a session where the teachers become learners and we all took part in the activities that later on we will be doing with our students. Here are some photos of the event:
