“Seasons for Growth”

Seasons is a grief and loss program based on the belief that change and loss are part of life and grief can be a natural response to these losses. It provides students an opportunity to learn about how death, separation, divorce or other significant loss events may impact on their lives. The participants will learn the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required to understand and respond well to such experiences. Mr Mal is running this program for students who are selected by teaching staff and the administration, or referred by parents with parental written consent.

Resilience Program “Drumbeat”

Drumbeat is a program designed for students to build resilience through rhythm on an instrument called the Djembe. It has consistently shown beneficial outcomes across a range of social measures for a variety of students. Mr Mal started the program with a boys group last week, which will continue into Term 4, and a girls group will start early next term. The students are already excited and are looking forward to learning more about drumming and applying their knowledge.

The team at Camp Hill OSHC would just like to share with you some fantastic news and success!  During out annual industry conference held on the 18th & 19th of September, the Camp Hill team were awarded the “Wild Rumpus Service Award” for outstanding achievement in 2017.  Kylie Brannelly, CEO of QCAN, articulated that on top of the numerous parent and faculty nominations, Camp Hill was the final recipient due to the large amount of feedback from other services who use us as inspiration and motivation to raise the bar. In an industry that thrives on collaboration and helping each other this is just about the best feedback we could hope to get!  A huge thank you to parents and staff for their amazing nominations, and to all our staff (pictured and not pictured) for their outstanding achievements.

P&C Thank you
A massive Thank You to Kerri Rook, who co-ordinated the Father’s Day stall.  A huge task in ordering, wrapping and making sure that every child got the same opportunity on the day to purchase something special.  Over 1000 gifts took over her house, so thanks to her family and her daughter Natasha for wrapping.  To our wonderful volunteers on the day that helped things to run smoothly, THANK YOU!
