OUR CORE VALUES @ SALC Making Connections INTEGRITY

Making Connections INTEGRITY

Integrity – ‘The Spirit of Honour’

“We aim to demonstrate integrity in our relationships with those in our own and wider community. We believe integrity is at the core of how others see us and as such, seek to be hold fast to what is good, by being honest, fair, trustworthy, respectful and ethical in everything we do. Integrity means we do the right thing and make the right choices, even when no one is watching. When we practise integrity, there is no difference between our behaviour and what we know to be right.”

Titus 2:7 – ‘In everything set them an example by doing what is good’

SHARE A STORY

In the JS Library this year we are planning to engage with the Share a Story Project and have a focus on exploring literature through the monthly topics in the beautiful Share a Story CALENDAR  with the desire to celebrate literacy and learning at SALC.

 

The Share a Story Project is the idea of the prolific and well respected author Jackie French  (who has currently published 103 books!). She is Australian Children’s Laureate for 2014 and 2015 and Senior Australian of the Year 2015.

“Luther and the Cloud Makers”by Kylie Newburn and illustrated by Sarah Nelisiwe Anderson  is a beautifully written and illustrated picture book that is not only a great book to share with younger children but is a perfect example of a resource to support student inquiry into Sharing the Planet.

Read an in-depth review by  the Picture Book Nook.

This book will be one I recommending for the Year 2 Sharing the Planet unit.
