Welcome

  

Hello! My name is Melanie Kinsman and I am a Master of Social Work student at Flinders University. I am currently on placement at Eden Hills Primary school. As part of my role, I will be conducting social skills programs such as ‘What’s the Buzz’ for small groups of students. In these sessions, I aim to empower young people to reach their full potential. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone over the coming weeks, especially those children who will be involved in the programs I’m running. In my spare time I like to read, watch films, and garden.

Piano Lessons

Piano Lessons spots are available at Eden Hills Primary with Laura Tink. These are held during school hours, but please get in touch if looking for out of school lessons. Lessons are half an hour for $35. Expressions of interest forms at the Front Office.

Lunch Time Clubs

Dungeons and Dragons

Dungeons and Dragons club has been going great. Everyone has been having a ball! We have been playing D&D in the learning street on Fridays at lunch and we have three campaigns going on run by Max, Jacob & Harper and Nivyn. They are the DMs (dungeon masters), and they are making sure that the players are having a fun time playing. After all that’s what D&D is all about! When we did our first time playing it, we got a lot more players than we expected! They were pouring through the door, and we didn’t know what to do at first! But then we sorted them out into tables and played some D&D. It was all okay in the end. We all had lots of fun.           Harper

Lego

In Lego club we gather in the library on a Friday at lunchtime. Together we start making a masterpiece. If you like your creation, we can save it so that next time you can continue on your creation. Hope to see you there.                                                                                                        Adam

Magazine

In magazine club we make a school magazine each term. Leading up to this anyone who wants to put something in the magazine meets in room 11 on a Wednesday at lunch. People can make headers, cartoons, stories, pictures, games or anything you can think of, and they will be put in the magazine at the end of the term. If your work is unfinished, it is because you never came to finish it and please remember to put your name and class on your wonderful work.                                                                     Acacia

Arts and Craft

Arts and crafts club have had a wonderful start. The kids that have been coming to the library on Tuesdays have been having a wonderful time. Every Tuesday we have something brand new to make; chatterboxes, bookmarks and make your own board game. We try to get something new and exciting each time so the whole school can get creative with their work. If you see the arts and crafts sign anywhere in the school, make sure you come along to get your creative on.                       Savanah

Trivia

Trivia club is on Wednesdays at lunch in the library. We have a new quiz every week. We ask questions about everything and have a few funny ones too. We switch who makes the quizzes every fortnight. It is going well, and everyone is having lots of fun. We’d love to see you there.        Alfred & Tenzin

Board Games

Board Game club is on Monday at lunchtime in the Resource Centre. Come and join us to learn to play some of our special games that are not available at other times, including some brand-new ones.              Melissa (SSO)

Wellbeing

Welcome back to all our students and families and especially to our new students and their families. I hope you all had wonderful holidays and that your first few weeks back at school have gone smoothly.

For the new students and your families, I would like to introduce myself and share with you what I do at the school and give you some information about the program I work in. The program that I work in, is called the National Wellbeing Program. The program aims to support schools promoting the well-being of all students with a focus on their social and emotional well-being needs.

I came into this role with a background in counselling, art therapy and training and assessment with a community development focus.

I have been working in this well-being role at EHPS for the past 9 years. I strive to support students to have a voice and develop a sense of what healthy well-being looks like. I work with individuals and small groups of students, with a focus on developing student’s social skills and conflict resolution skills, as well as building confidence and positive self-talk. I meet students where they are at, and together, we navigate and explore a path that they can take charge and be responsible in, and that is also realistic and achievable. Students can self-refer, alternatively their parents/guardians or teachers can refer.

I have really valued and enjoyed being part of the EHPS team and community, I continue to ensure that the students, staff, families, and school community are supported around their well-being needs.

I only work on Wednesdays from 8am to 4pm. I work alongside Perdita in Breakfast Club on Wednesday mornings, so please come in and say hi.

If you would like further clarification about anything, please feel free to book a time through the Front Office.

Kind regards

Pamela Hansen
