SWIPE for my big 3's School Achievements...
It goes without saying that Simon & I are proud of our Spunklets every single day, but there are days where we are extra proud of them. One of those days was today ( and a couple last week too! ) Today was CHPS Annual Presentation Day and today all 3 of our kids received academic awards! So proud! Max received his for 'Dedication To Learning', Ava for 'Enthusiastic & Dedicated Approach To Learning' & Sienna for 'Improvement In Her Commitment To Learning'. Amazing! They have shown such dedication to their education & in particular this year, Sienna who can struggle with her self confidence and is not a natural academic high achiever like Max & Ava, has shown so much improvement and loving to learn! So proud of her! Also last Wednesday, at the special end of term STAR Awards Assembly, Max was nominated for one of the STAR awards. He was nominated for the 'Safe' Award. "Max demonstrates an understanding of what is essential to keep himself & others safe within the school environment. He is proactive in seeking support to solve issues, always acting responsibly to make our school a better & kinder place for everyone". Just 7 students across K-6 are nominated in the 4 categories, another great achievement! He also got to have afternoon tea with the principal. Well done Max! And last Friday we were blown away when Sienna came home with a huge award also! She was crowned 'Student Of The Year' for K-2 for Matific! Wow! She was awarded a special certificate at assembly for coming first for the whole of K-2! She's a little maths whiz, just like her big brother! Well done Sienna!

‘In Australia, 41% of teachers report high levels of occupational stress (Milburn, 2011)
Teachers make more mental stress claims than any other industry (WorkCover, 2014) • In a survey of over 800 Australian teachers in government, Catholic and independent schools almost all (99.6%) teachers reported that they had been bullied at school by fellow teachers, principals or parents
– more than 90% of teachers reporting that they had been bullied by colleagues’
Does this shock you? Because it makes me feel so sad! As we come to the end of the year a time to celebrate and be thankful I’m saddened by seeing people who are just glad to be through the year and some who may not be continuing their teaching journey because of stress and shit people.
If you have nothing nice to say you’re clearly not trying hard enough!
It breaks my heart hearing how teachers, women, girls, people are struggling to feel supported and work in positive environments.
Working as a teacher is hard, you spend 90% of your day giving your energy to 25+ little people and at times you’ve just run out of energy.
But if there is one thing you take into the following year its just be kind! Teachers should SUPPORT teachers! We’re in this together, everyday.
The highest form of wisdom is kindness!
So stop being assholes to each other and choose to support, laugh, help and have fun! ・・
