Message from Director
On November 26 all school staff participated in the Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum Training provided by QSI headquarters. This curriculum was presented by a trainer from Baku. Teachers, from 3 YO’s through Secondary IV, will be teaching this curriculum beginning in January.
Parents are invited to an introduction to the Keeping Safe program on January 11th from 9-10 am in the cafeteria. Mr. Martin and Mr. Teeter will be presenting an overview of the entire program. All parents are invited.
The Keeping Safe curriculum was developed in South Australia in 2008. QSI is using the Global Edition of the program, updated and put out this year. The two themes of the program for all children are: “We all have the right to be safe.” and “We can help ourselves to be safe by talking to people we trust.”
There are some Non-Negotiable aspects of the program. One of them includes a group operating norm. These are agreed upon by each group or class in order for the environment to be safe and inclusive.
Respect other people’s opinions-only one person speaks at a time
Everyone listens actively
Everyone’s contribution is valued and acknowledged
Everyone has a “right to pass” or not talk about something
Use of “one step removed” (talk in the third person rather than about yourself) or “protective interrupting” (for the teacher to use if they feel a student is about to disclose sensitive information).
The topics covered are age appropriate for each level and have been carefully researched and screened over time. To find out more about the program, please see the website listed below and come to the introduction meeting on January 11th.

Preschool popcorn party with a special guest Our sweet little 3 & 4-year-olds with big hearts had a visit from the QSIT Panther this week. He brought popcorn and cheer to celebrate that the class collected 1,7 kilos of coins for charity.
10C students won the Upper Elementary Division of the Charity Tetri Drive. These students collected 2,7 kilos of coins, which brought them a sponsored pizza party.

Congratulations to the local charities receiving the funds collected.

My yoga practice will be more than general workouts. It will focus on recovering from physical injuries. I have a different approach with each student and I enjoy learning what each student wants from yoga and how their body wants to move. Yoga helps you live a healthy, joyful and happy life.
