Driver Messenger 13 September 2018 Driver Messenger 13 September 2018.htm[19/09/2018 12:24:32 PM] Taken from - http://www.ngenperformance.com/blog/leadership-2/the-value-of-self-reflection Our Turtle Tank opened this week. Some of our students need support to better learn how to be reflective like the turtle. Understanding how our behaviours affect our learning and the learning of others is part of being a good reflective learner. To help students develop this important skill we will be opening the Turtle Tank next week. The Turtle Tank will be a space that provides students with the opportunity for deep thought following inappropriate behaviour with a focus on three questions: 1. What came before? 2. What is up ahead? 3. What do I need to do to improve? When: Monday to Thursday Lunchtimes Who: Principal to support students who have demonstrated high level inappropriate behaviours, including assault, property damage and harassment How: 1. Student completes reflection sheet + conferences with Principal 2. Student works on fixing the harm 3. Letter sent home to parents informing them of incident The letter that is sent home will have a tear off and return section as we value working in partnership with families to help Driver students achieve success at school. This approach is designed to ensure that all student behaviour is reflective of our values and we value support from parents & carers in helping it succeed. http://www.ngenperformance.com/blog/leadership-2/the-value-of-self-reflection
