Not long now until the Easter Bunny’s here!
Easter is fast approaching, which means the Easter Bunny will be bringing goodies and the kids will have plenty of time to get through them on their Easter Hols!
We’ve also been busy here in the P.A. getting ready for the Easter Raffle and I think it’s safe to say we have outdone ourselves again this year with the Easter Hampers we have on offer for each class.
All proceeds go directly to RMDS to pay for educational resources that are not funded by the Department of Education and Science, and this year the school will be putting the money towards yard improvements and outdoor activities for the children while they are in school.
The sensory room provides a calm space for children who can become overwhelmed by the busyness of the classroom. This ability to take a break allows the child to return to the class calm and centred. The room currently features artificial grass coverings with acrylic mirror, felt material, and a padded sun; a floor-to-ceiling colour-changing lava lamp; a wheel projector which projects water onto the floor, and a projector/light package with bluetooth music speaker. Funding permitting, the school intends to add a never-ending tunnel of lights, bubble mirror and a tactile pad along the padded wall, a hammock and squeeze machine, a sensory ball pool, and weighted blankets.
The sensory room was initially developed for children with additional needs but children throughout the school have enjoyed it. Children who may be a little anxious or unsettled can use it to take a break, to calm themselves and to help them cope with the stresses they have been dealing with. We’re very grateful that we can offer this very important facility to the children of RMDS
