Developing Robust Routines: At Glenroy West, we recognize that routines grounded in Responsibility and Excellence lay the foundation for a successful school journey. Here’s how you can make a difference:
- Organise School Items: Encourage your child to prepare their uniform and school bag the night before. This instills a sense of responsibility and helps avoid morning rushes.
- Consistent Sleep Schedule: A regular bedtime and wake-up time promote a healthy lifestyle, respecting the body's need for rest and preparing for a day of learning.
- Nutritious Breakfast: Eating a healthy breakfast at a consistent time each morning fuels the body and mind, reflecting our commitment to excellence in health and education.
Creating a Positive School Mindset: Our school values Integrity and Respect, and we believe in fostering these values at home too.
- Positive Conversations: Discuss school experiences positively at home. If you have concerns, we encourage you to speak with our staff, maintaining a respectful and proactive approach.
- School Engagement: Show interest in your child's school activities and homework. This involvement demonstrates respect for their efforts and learning process.
Encouraging Independence and Problem-Solving: We aim to develop students who are responsible and excellent problem solvers.
- Guided Problem-Solving: Instead of immediately solving challenges for them, guide your child to think about possible solutions. This approach nurtures their independence and critical thinking skills.
- Learning from Mistakes: Encourage your child to view mistakes as learning opportunities, an essential part of growing and achieving excellence.
Promoting Regular Attendance: Regular attendance is key to academic and social development.
- Understanding the Importance: Discuss with your child how attending school every day contributes to their learning and social skills.
- Promptness: Encourage punctuality. Arriving on time for school is a sign of respect for the school day and a responsibility we value.
