WordFlyers Parent Information Evening

 

WordFlyers Parent Information Evening

19th February

Duncraig Theatre

6:00-7:30

WordFlyers is an online literacy learning platform for students in Years 7-10. It has been designed to develop grammar, reading, comprehension, punctuation, vocabulary and writing skills in an engaging online environment. As you know, a subscription to WordFlyers was included in the booklist requirements for English in 2018. The WordFlyers Parent Information Evening will be an opportunity for parents to hear from a representative from Blake Education about what this online learning platform can offer both students and parents. Rachel King will demonstrate the functionality of WordFlyers and how it can enhance student learning, both in English and across the curriculum. Her presentation will last approximately 50 minutes and there will be an opportunity to ask questions afterwards. Howie Jakeway (Head of Learning for English and Languages) will offer a short presentation on how WordFlyers will work alongside existing Programs of Study in Years 7-10 and will also be available to answer any questions. This is an important opportunity to hear about an exciting development in the teaching of English at St Stephen’s School and we look forward to seeing you at this information evening.

First Assembly of 2018

The first assembly of 2018 was held today in the gym. It was also the first assembly that the new Year 7 cohort has attended. The school band was in attendance which is always special.

A school assembly is a gathering of all or part of a secondary school for a variety of purposes, such as celebrating achievements, announcements, raise the roof with  singing, others are so quiet you can hear a pin drop but it is an ideal opportunity to communicate information on a regular basis.

Pictured below is Principal, Mrs. Donella Beare, Head of Secondary, Mr. Bruce Titlestad, and Deputy Head of Secondary, Dr. Liz Criddle.

“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.” – Colossians 3:23

Cyber Bulling Presentation

Mr Bennet Andrews, Deputy Head of Care, gave a presentation on Cyber Bullying today in the Community Room.

In an informal gathering Mr Bennet covered a number of issues and advocated creating safe, online environments for children. The presentation was to help parents recognise the signs of cyberbullying and give them the resources to help their children.
