|1||All Classes – OUR VISION AND VALUES
We will focus on the second two School Values throughout the month of October. Your Year Heads, your PSL’s (Guidance teachers), all your teachers and I will expect to see you showing these values in your attitude, work and behaviour both in and out of school throughout October. I will be speaking to many of you to discuss how you are striving to embrace these values. Think carefully about how each value applies to you.
Our October values are:
· Those around you
· The Environment
· For Freedom of Expression
· For your own actions
· For being safe and making good choices
· For participating in the life and work of our community

We have chosen ‘Trumpet’ by Jackie Kay as our first book to read. Currie Library has a number of copies to lend to our book group and there is an e-reader version available. If you put your name down already then come and see me to find out how to access the Currie Library copies. If you didn’t put your name down but want to join then come and chat to me!
If you are keen to set up an S1 to S3 book group then I’d love to hear from you!
