How to be a good friend

In 3/4W, we just read a book called ‘Never lonely again’ and spoke about what makes a good friend.

This is what we thought about what makes a good friend:

  • Be kind to people and not shout. Use kind voices and tones.
  • If someone is lonely, you can try to be their friend or be friendly towards them.
  • When they have made good choices, you should say ‘good job’ or encourage them.
  • Share things with your friends.
  • Say nice things to people and maybe say ‘I can be your friend’.
  • Remind your friends or people kindly about making the right choices. Don’t encourage inappropriate choices or pay attention to not so good choices.
  • Be confident to say ‘stop’ to things that are unkind or hurtful to people. If they don’t stop, use persistence to keep trying or tell a teacher.

Do you think there is anything we could add to the list? If so, please include it in the comments. How have you been a good friend? 

Welcome to Term 4!

Welcome back to Term 4! I hope you all had a well rested break. I went to Hobart in the first week of the holidays. Some of my highlights included:

  • Visiting Mount Wellington and playing in the snow. There is still so much snow there that some families were even tobogganing on it!
  • Going to the Cadbury visitors centre. I tried a lot of chocolate there 🙂
  • Seeing the beautiful botanical gardens
  • Hearing some lovely guitar music at the Salamanca Markets
  • Eating scones whilst seeing the view from Mount Nelson

Here are some photos from my holiday:


We have a lot to look forward to this term! Some things to look forward to include:

  • Gymnastics
  • Balwyn Show Day
  • End of Year concert
  • Our new integrated unit ‘From Little Things, Big Things Grow.’

What did you enjoy most about the holidays? What are you looking forward to this term?
