Cul­ture cel­e­brated

Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph News -

Port Kennedy stu­dents cel­e­brated En­deav­our Schools’ in­clu­sive ap­proach to ed­u­ca­tion last month with a day of ac­tiv­i­ties to support so­cial and emo­tional learn­ing.

En­deav­our Schools hosted its an­nual Fun and Friendly Fair on March 28 as a way of re­ward­ing and em­pow­er­ing stu­dents by high­light­ing the pos­i­tive cul­ture that ex­ists there.

Prin­ci­pal Chris Burgess said events like the fair were im­por­tant for the cul­tural iden­tity of the school and the re­in­force­ment of its val­ues.

“It was great to have many of our par­ents come along and par­tic­i­pate in the ac­tiv­i­ties with our stu­dents as they play an im­por­tant role in the ed­u­ca­tion of our stu­dents,” he said.

“The lead­er­ship and re­spon­si­bil­ity of our older stu­dents who sup­ported and guided their younger bud­dies through­out the dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties was re­ally pos­i­tive and re­in­forced what it means to be a stu­dent at En­deav­our Schools.”

The fair was also a way of put­ting the schools’ buddy pro­gram to use with older stu­dents join­ing those younger for a range of fun ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing ob­sta­cle cour­ses, mak­ing mu­sic, face paint­ing, ‘win in a minute style events’, bis­cuit dec­o­rat­ing and sport­ing skills chal­lenges.
