Children’s University update

51 students from both years 4 and 5 have recently received their Children’s University Passports and are ready to embark on their learning journey!

Children’s University is a program offering recognition for educational experiences outside of school hours. The model links with local education and activity providers (including sports clubs, museums, galleries, school clubs) having a strong emphasis on the experience itself and the value that particular activity has to offer. As they spend time on each ‘experience’, this will be noted on their passports against the hours required to complete the program. Upon completion of the program, students will be formally recognised at the Children’s University Graduation Ceremony where they will receive their certificate in front of their family and peers.

All students involved in the program are encouraged to visit the iCentre on Wednesday mornings from 8:40-9:00 to seek support, update their passports or receive advice on ways to increase their hours.

I look forward to this year being equally, if not more successful than last year.

Psychology and Social Work Placement Student

In an attempt to further increase the Wellbeing support available at Rose Park Primary school, we have initiated relationships with several local universities whereby we vet and interview 4th year Psychology and Social Work students that are looking for placements and experience. The selected students will undertake a 10 week placement where they are able to work with selected students/classes on targeted wellbeing issues. All placement students will be overseen and managed by Kim Copeland, our Student Wellbeing Leader as well as designated lecturers from their associated University.

We currently have Emma Tribe, a Psychology and Social Work student from Monash University conducting placement on site. Emma will be supporting up to 15 students and focusing on supporting students to further develop social skills and coping strategies to help deal with stress and anxiety.
