We are very excited to announce that in this term’s SVP meeting we will be hearing from our R-Year 7 School Wellbeing Leader, Suzanne Ierace, who will be sharing valuable information about the PLAY IS THE WAY® methodology. The Heights School utilises this methodology for teaching social and emotional skills using guided play, classroom activities and an empowering language. It is a process that gives our school a way to develop, improve and entrench the personal and social capabilities of students.
We encourage all of our volunteers, interested parents and caregivers to come along to this special SVP meeting to learn about the benefits of the curriculum and how you can use it at home.
