At Gooseberry Hill PS, we believe that all children have the right to feel safe at all times but we also know as parents, carers and teachers we cannot be with each child every minute of the day.
The physical and emotional impact of bullying, cyber bullying, child abuse and domestic violence is now much better understood. Research consistently shows that teaching children preventive ways of staying safe, such as those described in the protective behaviours program, is an effective way of strengthening children’s ability to recognise danger, seek help and minimise risk.
Gooseberry Hill PS is committed to teaching every child the protective behaviours program.
We’re really excited to have BOOK CLUB running this Term, but it will look a little different! It will be a virtual catalogue rather than the printed catalogues you’re used to receiving.
To order from this issue go to:
Place your order on LOOP as normal, orders must be placed by Monday 18 May at 9.30am.
We will receive your order here to our school like normal.
If you have any questions or queries, please contact: Mary Nardone, Library Officer (9257 4600)
