During Kindness week the kids in After School Care learned the important lesson of taking accountability for their actions by writing apology letters. We use these letters to help the children understand how their actions affect others. These notes are used for various reasons, whether it's hurting a friend's feelings or body, being disruptive or leaving a mess for others to clean up. We hope to need them less and less as the year progresses.

“Nothing great comes without a risk”. After School Care added a little adventure to their outside time last week simply by adding a knotted rope. The kids enjoyed multiple rounds of tug-o-war and then proceeded to mountain climb up the slide using teamwork and a lot of muscle. I’m happy to report there where no injuries but there were a lot of really tired and happy kids.
