Last night, the staff and school council at Suddaby Public School teamed up to host their first ever Learning Skills Night for their families.
Learning skills is an area of focus at Suddaby PS for this school year, as part of the school improvement plan for student achievement. Students have been setting goals, taking steps to work towards them, and reflecting on their progress. Recognizing that children do best when schools and families work together, school council volunteers and staff worked together to plan and create a learning skills carousel. Families got to visit, ask questions, learn how learning skills are practiced and measured at school, and how they can be nurtured and developed at home. In addition, representatives from Carizon joined the event to highlight the connection between Suddaby’s Tools for Life Program and learning skills.
As families left, each child took home a key ring with the six learning skills explained in family-friendly language, along with suggestions on how to support learning skills and work habits at home.
Suddaby PS had a great turn-out, welcoming over 120 families, and look forward to offering similar opportunities in the future.
