Second Letter Home from The Alpine School Campus (Altitude 1600m),
Friday 21 October, 2016
Welcome again to the community of the Alpine School Campus. Congratulations again on the achievement of being personally, as a team, as a family and as a school selected to participate in this Alpine School experience.
The purpose of these letters is to provide you a perspective of the intended program here at the Alpine School. What your son or daughter experiences, and then of course what they may communicate to you, may vary! This is quite normal! We will not be writing about individuals, more about the experiences of the community as a whole.
It seems amazing that a couple of weeks have passed already. As we indicate to your son or daughter, the time here seems to pass at an accelerating pace. I think it is something to do with the familiarisation of the living situation here. And familiar they certainly seem to be! I am very pleased at how readily our students this term have settled-in.
Visiting Weekend Reminders
Parents/ Guardians visiting weekend is approaching and this time is specifically a weekend about you as a family and about your relationship to you son/daughter, and is an integral part of the whole Alpine School separation and reintegration process. Give them your undivided attention and take the interest in their experience here and their return and reintegration over the Spring period will be so much better for all of you. You will all be changed for the better as a result!
If you are not able to make the visiting weekend or would like to talk to us about any of the matters raised, please do not hesitate to do so.
Mark Reeves (Principal) & Nicola Winter (Acting Campus Principal - Alpine School)
