To kick start the year at our Teacher Only Day back in January, all staff here at Silverdale spent time imagining their DREAM SCHOOL. We talked about the type of place we desire for our amazing learners. We imagined a place where every person who enters our gates feels welcomed, supported, happy, excited, challenged to be their best, valued, safe and accepted. We imagined a school that is the centre of a vibrant community where many cultures are represented and celebrated. We then started thinking about what values and beliefs would underpin this dream school – what do we need to believe about teaching, learning and relating to others that would help us to get there? It’s our goal to come up with a set of values and beliefs that WE create TOGETHER as a school and community that represents who we are and what we aspire to be. As parents and caregivers of our amazing learners, your voice is very important. I’d like to invite you along to a short evening here at school where we can hear from you about your DREAM SCHOOL and start to think about the underlying values that will help make this a reality. Children can come along and watch a movie while we meet.
