    RESILIENCE: HOW CAN WE PROMOTE IT IN OURSELVES AND OUR CHILDREN - WEDNESDAY 30 MAY, 7.00 PM, AURORA CENTRE
    by Marinda van Vuuren - Friday, 18 May 2018, 1:36 PM
     

    Dr Lucy Hone

    We would like to warmly welcome you to join us in attending a presentation by Dr Lucy Hone held here at Burnside High School in the Aurora Centre on Wednesday 30th May at 7pm. This presentation is based around building and developing Resilience in ourselves and our children and is presented to you jointly by the Burnside High School Health Department and the PTA. 


    Dr Lucy Hone is a director of the New Zealand Institute of Wellbeing & Resilience, a research associate at AUT University, a published academic researcher, author and blogger for Psychology Today. As well as this she has lived through tragic personal events which have forced Lucy to turn her substantial academic training and professional practice to foster resilience in very personal circumstances. 


    This presentation is very generously funded by the Burnside High School PTA and is available to all parents, caregivers and friends of the Burnside High School community for free.

    NOTIFICATION OF LATE STARTS - WEDNESDAY 16 MAY and TUESDAY 29 MAY
    by Marinda van Vuuren - Monday, 14 May 2018, 10:08 AM
     

    Please note that the start time for school will be later than usual on the following two days:


    • On WEDNESDAY 16 MAY, we will be delaying the start of school until the beginning of Period 2 (9.25 am) for all students.  This is to provide an opportunity for staff to disassemble displays and set up their rooms for teaching after Open Evening.  A warm invitation is extended to all parents and caregivers of prospective students to attend Open Evening from 5.45 - 9.00 pm.


    • There is a Paid Union Meeting on TUESDAY 29 MAY for Burnside High School staff. This will delay the start of school on that day until 11.00 am, beginning of Period 3.


    On both of these mornings, the library will be open for supervised independent study should childcare be an issue.


    Thank you for your support.
