HOUSE ASSEMBLIES NEXT WEEK (4 & 5 SEPTEMBER)

There will be house assemblies this week from 8.30-.8.40am.

Liddell – TODAY

Students should be in the assembly hall for 8.30am, sitting in register groups, so their teacher can see them and mark a register during assembly. There will be signs up in the hall directing you where to sit.

YEAR OF KINDNESS

This week is about being kind to yourself through awareness of your own actions and how they affect you. Sleep is really important for both our physical actions and our mental health. The use of electronic devices and the level of activity we undertake each day can impact upon how well we sleep. Try to small changes this week such as going to bed half an hour earlier or reducing your screen time by 30 minutes.
