Parent Workshop – Developing Resilience in Children – Wednesday 29 May

Parents are invited to attend a free workshop being held at Narwee Public School (in the room next to Mrs Muffett’s classroom) on Wednesday 29 May from 9.30am – 11.00am. If you would like attend the workshop please book in with Mrs Monin

This workshop helps parents gain knowledge about resilience, looks at how it is developed and what external factors can effect resilience. It also looks at how to promote your child’s resilience and examines what resources are available to parents.

The 1.5 hour session covers topics such as:

  • What is resilience?
  • Why is it important?
  • What are the factors associated with it?
  • 7 learnable skills of resilience
  • The overall model of resilience
  • The protective factors associated with resilience

We hope you are able to attend.

Changes to School Uniform Policy & Associated Guidelines

The NSW Department of Education has revised the School Uniform Policy and associated guidelines following an extensive review and consultation process, including with the NSW Parents and Citizens Association. The revised School Uniform Policy requirements include that:

  • all students have the opportunity to access the full range of school activities, including physical activities while wearing a school uniform
  • girls must have the option to wear shorts and pants
  • consideration is given to cost and how to assist families, including for schools to inform parents how they can access financial support to purchase school uniform items

The revised School Uniform Policy and associated guidelines can be found at the link: https://education.nsw.gov.au/policy-library/policies/school-uniform-policy

Where changes are required to a school’s uniform, there must be formal consultation with students, teachers and other staff, parents or carers, and the school community (including  the Parents and Citizens’ Association). Parents and carers should be given up to 3 years to comply with any changes.

For queries please contact Mrs Monin.
