Let’s Talk Resilience with Madame Pilote
Resilience is a crucial skill to have. Throughout my education career I have seen first hand how more and more important it has become for children to develop this skill at a very young age. Students who develop resilience early in life have a better chance to successfully cope with the many challenges they will face in their future.
I would like to invite you to a one hour workshop where I will share with you some tips and findings I have come across over the years, to help children become more resilient. I have been particularly inspired by a book I read some time ago, called “The Danish Way of Parenting“.
Date: Tuesday 9 November 2021
Venue: Primary Forum, Carramar Campus
Please book your ticket using the following link: https://events.humanitix.com/mp2021

Remembrance Day Poppies
In the lead up to Remembrance Day, Monday 11 November, poppies are available to purchase for a gold coin donation from the Reception Office.
All poppy appeal donations go directly into assisting veterans and their families in need. The importance of these funds continues to be highly relevant as we support veterans of recent conflicts such as Iraq, Afghanistan and East Timor, alongside the aging population from past conflicts.
Loud Shirt Day
Exciting news! Loud Shirt Day is fast approaching, we will be celebrating this on Friday 12 November. Loud Shirt Day is the perfect excuse to wear your brightest shirt and get LOUD and PROUD to raise money to help give the gift of sound and speech to deaf children.
This year we are:
- Inviting the students to wear their loudest shirts for a gold coin donation
- Celebrating being LOUD with a lunchtime disco in the forum
Jump Rope for Heart 2021
Jump Rope for Heart is a fantastic physical activity and fundraising program that has been run by the Heart Foundation for over 36 years. It’s a great way for your child to keep fit and learn new skills, but it also helps raise funds for vital heart research and education programs.
Since Jump Rope for Heart started in 1983, schools like ours have raised more than $104 million for the Heart Foundation’s lifesaving work.
It’s important you register your child online, so they can receive the full benefits of the program and participate in online fundraising, simply follow the link below to get started.www.jumprope.org.au/parents
Students will be practicing their skipping at school and home, and during this time you can share their online fundraising page with family and friends to help raise money for this great cause.
We will hold our school Jump Off Day on Wednesday 24 November (Week 7), and this will mark the end of the program and is a chance for everyone to come together to skip and show off their newly learned skills.
Thank you for supporting the Jump Rope for Heart program!
