No Possum-hunting on School Nights

No Possum-hunting on School Nights

Categories: School, Milikapiti

Katherine Leo, Principal at Milikapiti School has a message for parents: save possum-hunting for the weekends. One of the hardest things for kids is staying up late, which means they wake up late, come to school late and miss quite a lot of their literacy time.

Everyone likes to go possum-hunting but it’s probably best to make it a special activity for Friday and Saturday nights. On school nights, kids need to get to bed a bit earlier, so they’ve had a good sleep and come to school ready to learn.

Our remote school attendance officer, Trevor (or TW) does a fantastic job of liaising with families and catching up with them on a day-to-day basis. Trevor is committed to getting kids to school so they can get the best education for their futures.

We’ve started a breakfast program at school, which means kids just need to get out of bed, get ready and come and have breakfast at school and be ready to learn.
