Hello, my name is Jessica Wolfenden and I am very excited to be in the role of Year 9 Coordinator in 2022. Lisa Price has been in the role for Term 1 before her maternity leave, and I will take over for Terms 2 to 4. I am looking forward to continuing to support this group of Year 9 students in their third year at Craigslea State High School. Our aim is to provide guidance for all students socially, emotionally and academically to engage each student in a positive school experience.
Year 9 students will continue to take part in the weekly CAB (Craigslea and Beyond) program. The focus of this program has been on developing the student's social and emotional wellbeing through planned activities covering topics such as goal setting, positive self-talk, healthy friendships, cyber safety and leadership. External presenters, the school health nurse and guidance officer, and form teachers will all help to present these issues in a way that has proven to be a holistic approach to student wellness. We will also be revisiting some of the skills we learnt in the Healthy Minds Program early last year.
A process that will continue into Year 9 for the students is the uniform code and procedure for non-compliance. The Craigslea State High School student dress code provides clothing that aims to contribute to a safe and supportive teaching and learning environment through: ready identification of students and non-students at school, fostering a sense of belonging and developing mutual respect among students. We will be monitoring uniform throughout each term, along with form teachers. The aim of this process is to ensure all students uphold respect for themselves and the school through pride in their uniform.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at any time. The best way to do so initially is by email - Jess email@example.com.
I look forward to a productive and safe 2022!
Year 9 Coordinator 2022
