Compass Corner

Your child’s first report for Grades

 1 to 6 will be on Compass from

 Friday afternoon. There will be several of these reports each term.

This first report is on Mathematics.

So, log onto Compass to access your child’s learning in your own time, on your home computer or mobile device (e.g. iPad or phone). Compass allows you to see your child’s work and the teacher’s assessment and feedback. You can leave a comment for the teacher and child to view too. We cannot reiterate the importance of engaging with what your child is learning at school.

So please get online and share in your child’s learning at Mildura West. You can log on here: https://mildurawestps.vic.jdlf.com.au

Mindfulness

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.

At MWPS our children participate in 5 minutes of Mindfulness every day.

We are implementing Mindfulness because when we tune in to our body and our mind through mindfulness, we can improve our learning.

Mindfulness assists mental health and wellbeing and has been successfully implemented in a wide variety of government and non-government schools with positive results in classes of all sizes, backgrounds, locations and ages.

It has also been proven to help students with sleep, wellbeing, managing emotions, concentration and school behaviour including reductions in bullying.

It assists in:

•stress management,

•increased resilience,

•increased creativity,

•better decision making, and

•a sense of calm, clarity and contentment.

Please ask your child all about Mindfulness and maybe they can try it at home.

Home Routine

Although we are all busy people, please try to put a routine in place whereby children know they must do their homework. Reading from real books is important for children to develop a love of books. They should be reading at home every day. It’s also important for parents/carers to read TO their children. Having a range of books at home and regular visits to the library also encourages this. 

Open Door Policy

Remember we operate an open door policy. Please pop in to visit your child’s classroom and say hello to the teacher. We love it when our parents/carers spend time in our classrooms. Book an appointment with your child’s class teacher if you have questions or concerns that are of a private nature. A date for parent/teacher meetings to get to know your child will be announced next week.

We want the very best for your child. Please continue to work with us so your child can grow in confidence, with a love of learning, and a determination to be the best person they can be.

We will do everything we can to help your child to do their best.  Let us know if we can support you in any way.

As you know one of our school values is Respect.  We endeavour to ensure that all children show respect for everything (friends, adults, property) and we constantly remind learners of the values that underpin our every action. This week we have been focussing on reminding children to greet others and use their name. Please help us reinforce this curtesy.
