Kids Matter Term 4 Focus

Weeks 1 - 3   Supporting Others

Weeks 4 - 6   Honesty

Our Kids Matter focus for Weeks 3-6 will be honesty. Staff will be focusing on honesty during Health lessons and will be looking out for students that display this value. Can you please discuss with your child/ren about this important value.

 Being honest means telling the truth, not stealing, giving things back when they belong to someone else and owning up when you have done the wrong thing.
