Dear Parents, Students, Staff and Friends of the College.
We have had an exciting start to the term with our Parent/Teacher Information Evening,
our Worship Service, School Photos, Choir and Bible Bunch starting, Reading Café and
the Year 6.1 Assembly. The Year 3 and 4 students are busy with preparations for their
item for our College Sunday Service to be held on Sunday, 22nd March at 9.30am.
Continuing with our goal to become successful learners, confident and creative
individuals and active and informed citizens we need to look at what resilience is.
Resilience is the ability to steer through serious life challenges and to find ways to
bounce back and to thrive. Resilience is not something we have or don’t have. We work
on it throughout our lives, and the sooner we start to work on it the better. Parents are
the most important people to help build their children’s resilience. Children learn a lot
by watching their parents. When parents cope well with everyday stress, they are
showing their children how to do the same.
We need both outside and inside supports to build our resilience. Outside supports
include caring relationships and positive role models and inside supports include selfcontrol, thinking skills, confidence, responsibility and participation.
Encourage your child to keep on trying, show your child that “mistakes are ok,” build up
their strengths and let then “have a go” on their own. Encourage them to take
responsibility for their actions.
Those who hope in
Lord will renew their
strength. They will
