GALSTON PUBLIC SCHOOL

Education Week Open Day, saw students participating in a Book Character Parade, and an Honour Assembly where the Senior Band and the Dance Group both gave superb performances. A Book Fair was supported by parents who generously donated new and engaging books to the Library and Open Classrooms which offered a delightful time for parents and visitors alike to share their children’s efforts. Finally a picnic lunch was enjoyed by many families to conclude this wonderful day.

Year 6 Peer Support Leaders recently completed a Training Day. This valuable training day was in readiness for this year’s Peer Support program which will run for eight sessions on ‘Living Positively’ – a module which focuses on optimism. The module will support students to develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to identify their individual strengths and maintain a positive outlook on life. Students will be involved in activities to help them develop skills such as resilience, coping, critical thinking and planning. Peer leaders have planned each session using the material from Peer Support Australia. Congratulations to the leaders for the commendable skills they displayed in running their first lesson and also to the K-5 students who showed respect and consideration by working so well in their peer goups.
