 What's On At Christ The King



Webinar Wrap Uphttp://www.christthekingdbay.qld.edu.au/latest-news-events/Pages/Webinar-Wrap-Up.aspxWebinar Wrap Up<p></p><p>I heard from a few parents who tuned in to the webinar last week presented by Andrew Muller on Building Mentally Healthy Kids. Andrew shared a great deal of information to help us understand how kids think and why they do and say the things they do.<br><br>These are the take homes I got from his webinar:<br></p><ul dir="ltr"><li dir="ltr"><p>Our two main aims for our children are academic success and making young people ready for life.</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>One of the core building blocks in making children ready for life is love and security. Children need secure attachments, feel a sense of being loved, know their feelings and be able to calm themselves down.</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>If children don’t feel secure, their response is often to anxious or to avoid.</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>We have 3 main clocks – nutrition, activity, and sleep. It is important that children have food that is deeply coloured eg. berries, watermelon, bananas as it increases nitric oxide which refuels our battery as it's stored as energy in the cells in our body. Wahl Nutrition has a YouTube clip on this.</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Time on devices should cease long before bedtime to ensure students are getting adequate sleep.</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>When children are being oppositional, don’t get sucked into an argument as children will get stuck. Speak in a monotone voice and move around the house eg. keep talking but move to the kitchen.</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Andrew’s phrase was ‘don’t show up to every argument you are invited to.</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Tricky children will ask for something 9 times before they give up.</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Make misbehaviour abnormal, not normal.</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Kids need more repetitive movements and less screens to increase their dopamine levels. Dopamine provides motivation and helps children change their emotional state. Things they can do are puzzles, hitting a ball against a wall, tapping fingers together, handball, basketball, totem tennis etc</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Envy is a waste of time and traps children. Happy children freely follow their own passions and give up envy.<br></p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Children are happiest when they feel they make a meaningful contribution. They are family members and need an opportunity to contribute to the family and community if possible.<br></p></li></ul><p><br></p><div><div><div><p>I will forward an email to all parents that Andrew sent following the webinar on ‘How to wean your teen from the screen? Many children here have device addictions. We see it in their behaviour, their inattentiveness, and their inability to concentrate. If you don’t know what to do, this will help.<br></p><p><br></p></div></div></div><div><p>Andrew’s next webinar:<br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>YOU ARE WARMLY INVITED TO ATTEND </strong></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>AN ONLINE WEBINAR WITH ANDREW FULLER.</strong></p><p style="text-align:center;"><br>THIS IS A FREE EVENT SPONSORED BY CATHOLIC SCHOOL PARENTS<br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>Webinar 2: Identifying & Building Your Child's Learning Strengths</strong></p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>Tuesday 19 October 7-8pm on Zoom</strong></p><p><br>Please note this webinar will be live and not able to be recorded.<br><br>Andrew is a Clinical Psychologist, Family Therapist, Author, Speaker and Creator of 'Learning Strengths'.  This second webinar is to support our children's learning and wellbeing.  Topics suitable for all ages Prep to Yr 12.<br><br> This session is applicable to every family and empowers parents to guide their children (and themselves) towards success.  This approach takes the latest research from brain science, positive education and resilience to create strength based education.<br><br>Topics to be covered will include:<br><ul><li>Increasing engagement & motivation<br></li><li> Learning strengths<br></li><li> Neuroscience of young adult's learning</li></ul> <br>Please click on the link in our latest newsletter to view our event website and register.<br><br>A zoom link for the webinar will then be sent directly to your registered email.<br><br>Limited registrations.<br><br>In consideration, please only register if you intend to join the webinar.<br></p><p><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/latest-news-events/PublishingImages/AndrewFuller2.jfif" alt="AndrewFuller2.jfif" style="margin:5px;" />​<br></p></div>
Works Completedhttp://www.christthekingdbay.qld.edu.au/latest-news-events/Pages/Works-Completed.aspxWorks Completed<p>We managed to get quite a few tasks done around the school during the last holidays. Our playgrounds have been completed; we are now waiting on the shade structures to provide shade. We purchased two outdoor table tennis tables for the students to use at lunch time and removed the fence around the tennis court. On Wednesday we appreciated our new BIG fans to cool us down in the hall during assembly. We have a few more minor tasks to finish off before the end of the year.</p><p>Our newsletter contains additional photos of our new playgrounds.  <br></p><p>​<img src="/latest-news-events/PublishingImages/playground2021.jpg" alt="playground2021.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:536px;" /><br></p>
Welcome to Term 4http://www.christthekingdbay.qld.edu.au/latest-news-events/Pages/Welcome-to-Term-4.aspxWelcome to Term 4<p>It was wonderful to see all those who could make it on Friday morning for breakfast! We really hope that this term provides us with more opportunities to gather as a community.<br><br>This is a very busy term with activities so you will need to keep a close eye on newsletters and email so you don’t miss anything. All planned activities that I am aware of are listed in our latest newsletter but this may change at any minute with COVID as we all know.<br><br></p><p>We announced our first CtK VIPs at assembly this week. Congratulations to these children who worked hard to get their tickets this week. Each Tuesday we will draw the next VIPs from each class. VIPs wear a special badge for the week, get special privileges around the school, do special jobs and come and have lunch at the office on Friday with Mrs Logan or myself.<br></p><p><img src="/latest-news-events/PublishingImages/VIPStudents151021.jfif" alt="VIPStudents151021.jfif" style="margin:5px;width:536px;" /><br></p><p>​</p>
