New pro­grams en­gage stu­dents

Isis Town and Country - - News -

IN TERM 3, St Joseph’s School will roll stu­dent en­gage­ment pro­grams de­signed to help make school a more en­joy­able ex­pe­ri­ence for all stu­dents.

The Lunch Club is one pro­gram, which will pro­vide semi-struc­tured play op­por­tu­ni­ties.

St Joseph’s be­lieves if chil­dren have a more re­laxed and en­joy­able lunch time, they will be more able to en­ter the class­room af­ter lunch ready for learn­ing.

The lunch clubs will be tech­nol­ogy, board games, pho­tog­ra­phy, art and craft and read­ing.

Cool Con­nec­tions is another pro­gram be­ing rolled out.

Play-is-the-Way is the pro­gram cho­sen by St Joseph’s School to en­able whole school so­cial and emo­tional teach­ing.

The key con­cepts of Play-is-the-Way are to treat oth­ers as you would like them to treat you, be brave – par­tic­i­pate to progress, pur­sue your per­sonal best no mat­ter who you work with, have rea­sons for the things you say and do and it takes great strength to be sen­si­ble.

In ad­di­tion to en­gag­ing in Play-is-the-Way dur­ing HPE lessons, stu­dents will also en­gage in the pro­gram on a Tues­day from 2.30–2.50pm.

Dur­ing this time stu­dents will be in ver­ti­cally streamed groups (each group will have stu­dents from Prep to Year 7).

This will en­cour­age some Cool Con­nec­tions be­tween stu­dents across the school.
