All of Castleview’s Sporting achievements including Sports Day winners were celebrated in a special Assembly today. Well done to everyone who represented Castleview so well at the different Sporting events throughout the year.
Thankfully the sun shone for us on Sports Day. Excellent efforts were given by everyone in our Interhouse Competition and for the Class Races. Well done everyone!
This week we launched our final Building Resilience unit. This unit is called ‘Expect the Unexpected’. In this unit, we explore how we cannot protect ourselves from change (no matter how much we would like to) as it is part of life. Sometimes change can be a positive experience and sometimes it brings with it, disappointments, difficulties or loss. In this unit we will be learning that:
– Change is a part of life
– It’s ok not to be ok
– I have learnt ways to look after my mental health
We will reflect on the 10 tools we have been learning about over the past three years. We know how to look after our physical health by doing things like brushing our teeth, excercising and trying to make healthy food choices. However, we must also ensure we are looking after our minds. The ten tools we have been learning about help us do just that. We should practise using these tools regularly.
It is a relevant week to launch our final unit of Building Resilience as this week is Mental Health awareness week. The theme for 2019 is body image – how we think and feel about our bodies. This links to our ‘Respect Yourself’ unit.
Primary 3 did a super job hosting their open afternoon for parents and carers today. They showcased their Ancient Egyptian artwork, performed a song and a dance and sampled some food that would have been popular during Ancient Egyptian times!
Thank you to all parents and carers who were able to attend and thank you for the positive feedback about the afternoon.
