Importance of a Good Routine

Let's talk Bedtimes...

“Although it is normal for some children to have worries, it is crucial to help them adjust to a routine. Avoidance of school and a bedtime routine will only increase and reinforce a child’s fears. It’s important for parents to help their children readjust to a school-time sleep-schedule, with scheduled time for meals, studying, and sleep,” says Dr. Al Yafei.

Anti Bullying Week

BULLYING GIVES US THE BLUES!'

This week in Primary school we are reinforcing Anti bullying throughout the school. We will be discussing ways on how to prevent bullying, how do we stop bullies and how to take care of a friend who's being bullied. Activities will be happening across the school - in classrooms, the library, playgrounds, assemblies etc. We encourage you to also discuss this important topic with your child at home. They may complete home activities such as sharing a story, a piece of writing or a small poster and share it with their teacher and class and discuss.

This is not a required project but a wonderful idea to show how we all care by sharing it with their classmates and teacher.
