Being my last YES Message for the year I will keep it short and to the point. Simply – Rest! School is hard work that staff and children need to recuperate from. Like we need to rest and sleep each night, we also need a significant break to get our energy levels back to continue with the hard work of teaching and learning, so make sure you do something (or nothing) to really unwind from school, ready for a fresh start in the new year.
What can you do to help at home? Survive the six weeks of having your children at home with no break from them J. Help them let their hair down and if you’re lucky also let your hair down. That sounds easy, but being a parent myself, I know that is hard work in itself.
