You Can Do It! Getting Along

Our focus key for weeks 9 and 10 is the Getting Along key. Getting along means working well with teachers and classmates, resolving disagreements peacefully, following the rules fo the classroom and making positive contributions to school, home and the community including protecting the rights of others and looking after the environment. One of the tools that we utilize at Sandgate State School to help students with the Getting Along key, is the High-5 Hand Strategy. Students from all year levels are encouraged to use the High-5 hand when dealing with conflict. A copy of this poster can be found below. It is often useful to have a copy of the poster on the fridge at home, to use as a talking point if your child comes home discussing conflict that they may have encountered during the school day.
