Term 3 Week 2
In wintery depths
There warms the Spirit’s true Being,
It gives the world appearance
Through heart’s forces, powers of existence,
Strengthening, in spite of world coldness
The soul fire in the human interior.

Hi all, hoping that everyone in the school community has been keeping cosy, occupied and safe at home, as we step through another lockdown and remote learning experience. A BIG THANK YOU to all the parents and carers that are supporting our students and their siblings at home with Zoom sessions and learning activities, as well as overall wellbeing. It’s a juggling game that some are finding tiring, so please keep checking in with your usual supports, informal or professional, as needed. Please contact your Class Teacher or the Student Care Team, if you are experiencing any challenges or changes with your children’s mental health, wellbeing or daily behaviours.
We look forward to being back at school but understand that returning to school may make some children feel a bit more anxious. This is being widely reported in research and the media about the longer–term mental health impacts of COVID-19 lockdowns. If additional support is needed, please just ask.
GENDER DIVERSITY YOUTH SPACE
A new initiative from Way Out is happening in Kyneton on Saturday 14th August. Please see flyer below. The aim of Planet Gaga is to support non-binary, transgender and gender diverse children aged 6-11years old. The right supports at the right time are so very important for children that are affirming and celebrating their gender identity in the way that feels right for them. Gender stereotypes are placed on our children right from infanthood, through clothing, play activities/toy choices, social expectations and so much more. Let’s make sure that your young people are receiving an inclusive and affirming message in their daily activities and experiences. If you are looking for gender diversity resources, please check out the following resources.
