WE CARE WEDNESDAY
MR PAUL ALLEN, DIRECTOR OF SOUTHSIDE CENTRE VISITS ST. EDWARD'S
On Friday there was a special visitor to St Edward's. The Director of the South Service Centre Brisbane Catholic Education Office, Mr Allen, came to our school. He spent time walking around the classrooms and talked to many students about their learning - he found out their WALTs, WILFs and TIBs...The puppets made an appearance in some rooms! Mr Allen loved how we could talk about our learning behaviours and especially loved hearing about the "Steve" awards. He was proud to see what we are learning in our class and loved how the classroom was bright and full of student work. It is great that we had this special visitor see the super stuff happening at Eddies.
Each Week 8 of the term we focus on “Wellbeing Week”. This is an opportunity to take time for individual, class and community wellbeing. Below is a brief outline of the week ahead……Year 6R will launch and explain these activities more at assembly this week. We are looking forward to having a ball!!!!
