Newman News Term 1 Week 6: From the Leader of Early Childhood

The College places great importance on providing a holistic education for our students. At an Early Childhood level this encompasses many aspects of a child’s learning and development. We are constantly striving to cater to the diverse learning needs of our students, and continue to offer learning opportunities that are engaging, exciting and build on the learning areas of the Western Australian Curriculum. Excursions and Incursions are an opportunity to provide experiences that allow children to explore, extend and enrich their learning, whilst reinforcing the learning objectives of the classroom curriculum. This Term, our Kindy and Pre Primary students will be venturing out on excursions to Kings Park’s Naturescape and through this they will explore the culture of the Noongar people. Additionally, Constable Care will be visiting our campus this Term to reinforce the concepts that we teach in our Keeping Safe: Protective Behaviours curriculum. Many more opportunities such as these will continue to be provided throughout the year, and we thank parents who kindly volunteer their time to assist with supervision during these events.
