Selected seventh and eighth grade choir students were invited to perform at the Australia National Choral Association Choralfest Conference in Fremantle, Western Australia. There is no other event quite like it which draws in so many sectors of the choral community—teachers, educators, university lecturers and conductors, singers, composers, choir managers, and committee members.
In this three-part series, high school psychologist Dr. Jeff Devens shares how parents can help their children settle in as they transition into a new culture, school, and country.
In order for a child to learn, the mind and body must work together. This is why a perceptual motor program is important in the early years. The perceptual motor program at SAS focuses on developing the whole child, physically, cognitively, and social emotionally. It also offers a transdisciplinary experience and encourages the core values of compassion, honesty, fairness, respect, and responsibility.
