News from Head of Primary, Zoe Richardson

The Daily Mail recently featured an interesting article in their online news edition, “Parents ban daughters from watching TV and set them 100 outdoor challenges in a year”. The article described a couple who were determined not to let their young daughters become sedentary, banned them from watching TV and then set them 100 outdoor challenges in a year.  Among the challenges were experiences such as caving, canoeing, wild cooking, animal watching, orienteering and star gazing.

This article caught my attention as it clearly demonstrates how parents can model and inspire high performance learning values, attitudes and attributes within the home.  A family working together to develop collaboration, concern for society, confidence, inquiring, creativeness, open-mindedness, perseverance and risk taking skills can help to inspire, motivate and focus parents and children in a common purpose. 

Modeling and encouraging High Performance Learning and the VAAs both at school and within the home is important.  The demands of the 21st century require that student’s comprehensive needs are addressed through the shared responsibility of students, families and schools.  We live in a global economy that requires our students to be prepared to think both critically and creatively, evaluate massive amounts of information, solve complex problems, and communicate well. A strong foundation in reading, writing, math, and other core subjects is still as important as ever, yet by itself is insufficient for lifelong success. 

High Performance Learning which occurs at school as well as in the home equips students to deal with challenging and engaging academic programs and be better prepared for further education, work and civic life.
