Thank you once again for seeking a Christian education for your child, one that is compatible with the worldview and values of your home. I trust Term 1 has been productive for your child/ren and again remind you of the importance of holidays as part of the educational program.
Please ensure that your child does not see holidays as a break from learning, but just a break from school. If your child does not read, write or do some simple mathematical task over the break, they will drop back a little academically from where they finish the term. Can I suggest an extra treat if they achieve a certain number of hours of reading over the holidays – say 30min per day x 14 days = 7 hours?
To help make it easier for you, I am willing to add a Merit Certificate with a Gold Principal’s Award to whatever you incentive you offer your child if they will bring in a letter signed by you confirming that they have achieved 7 hours of reading over the break. I will hand the Certificates out at the first assembly in Term 2.
I hope you have a great break and find a good book or two to enjoy yourself. I am nearly finished ‘Switch on Your Brain’, ‘A Random Walk Down Wall Street’ and ‘The Book That Made Your World’ but all of them were interrupted by a John Grisham novel, ‘The Racketeer.’
Yours partnering in education, PM
