Triple P Seminar-Fear-Less
We are providing parents the opportunity to attend a Triple P seminar on Tuesday 15 Sept 5.30-7.30 at Duncraig Primary School Library. Fear-Less Triple P supports parents and helps them to learn new cognitive behavioural strategies for anxiety management, encouraging them to apply these themselves for all their children. If you would like to attend, please book via the link. Note there are limited places.

Dear Parents, Carers and Community,
Duncraig Primary School is fundraising for the Australian Childhood Foundation. This fundraiser has been organised by our student leaders because they believe that all children have the right to be safe from violence and abuse.
Any donation that you can make to this fundraising page is hugely appreciated. Visit the donate page.
Thanks so much for your support!
Latest News – Chaplains Chat, Eco Team and Awards
Welcome back for 2020. I hope you found time for rest and renewal over the break.
This year I will attend Duncraig Primary on Tuesdays.
During lunch times this term I am supporting activities in the library – initially students working on positive affirmations including this term’s value of ‘Respect’.
I am also available to respond to formal parent requests to support their child through challenging personal and social issues. This can be through 1-1 confidential conversations where I am a positive presence as I listen to, value, and encourage children.
If I may be able to assist your child, please speak to their teacher or administration to request a chat. I will be in touch to confidentially discuss their situation with you and how I may be able to support them in my role.
All the very best for the year,
Paul Stokes (Chaplain)
WE would like to create an ECO team at Duncraig Primary School. The purpose of this team is to develop some whole school initiatives that support a culture of sustainability and environmental responsibility. This would include a group of parents and staff who would work together to participate in programs such as the Kitchen Garden, recycling and waste management. If you would like to be involved please come to the conference room at the school on 5 March at 2pm.

Children who are colour blind can see as clearly as other people, but can’t tell the difference between some colours or see colours differently from other people.
Very few people who are colour blind are ‘blind’ to all colours – most often they see red and green as very similar.
It’s good to know if a child is colour blind because he may have difficulty at school with activities that use colours, such as drawing and sorting blocks, and with computers.
