This weeks’ highlights include:

It can be incredibly difficult for parents to see their kids struggle with anything, even when it is their own emotions. However, it is important for parents to step back and let their children learn how to deal with life’s uncomfortable feelings. Rescuing them or sheltering them from things that cause upset may seem like the right thing to do to protect them. However, in the long run these actions can stunt a child’s ability to regulate their own emotions, which is an integral life skill. Find out why it is important to let your kids feel uncomfortable feelings!

When your child is between two and eight, and again in adolescence, they’re ruled by their frontal cortex, or feeling brain. Neuroscience educator, Nathan Wallis, explains what this means for them.

Bull Creek News: Multicultural Week

Last week Bull Creek students celebrated Multicultural Week. We embrace diversity and inclusivity each day at school and it is always wonderful to learn more about our friends’ cultures.

On Thursday, we held a Multicultural Tasting Day. Families were asked to bring in a small plate of food to share, representing their country of origin. Students displayed confidence when speaking about their dish, outlining its name, ingredients, where it is from, when it is eaten and what is special about it. We had the most amazing spread of food from around the world. We thank our parents and carers for their input and incredible cooking skills! The children were very brave trying new foods that they had never seen or heard of before. Banksia 1 and 2 classes also participated in a range of multicultural activities including storybook discussions, hand printing, collage and exploring rhythm and beat with multicultural musical instruments. What a fun day!

On Friday Mr Hofmeester organised a special Multicultural Assembly including Tinikling Bamboo Dancers and whole school singing. Students dressed in cultural clothing. It was lovely to see a sea of outfits representing different countries around the world as we gazed across the undercover area.
