Welcome to Pigeon Mountain School

We are a large Decile 8 contributing State Primary School catering for students from Year 0 to Year 6

Welcome to Winter!

This week, we hosted an event on behalf of The Parenting Place. Anyone who attended will no doubt agree what a wonderful event it was, and how it reminded us of the incredibly difficult job we have as parents.  I read something on Facebook this week which, as a parent of 3 children, made me think.

“Don’t become preoccupied with your child’s academic ability, but instead teach them to sit with those sitting alone. Teach them to be kind. Teach them to offer help. Teach them to be a friend to the lonely. Teach them to encourage others. Teach them to think about other people.  Teach them to share.  Teach them to look for the good.   This is how they will change the world.”

Reflecting on the interactions I enjoy every day with the wonderful students of Pigeon Mountain, and how they demonstrate the school values of Respect, Resilience, Excellence and Responsibility, I think we’re all doing a pretty good job of getting the balance just about right!  Give yourselves a pat on the back and keep up the good work!
