YCDI

YCDI (You Can Do It)

The You Can Do It! Education, is a school-home collaborative approach to promoting the social-emotional wellbeing and achievement of all children. It does this by strengthening the five social and emotional skills and values which all children need to manage their own learning, behaviour and emotional wellbeing (confidence, persistence, organisation, getting along and resilience). YCDI encourages different ways of thinking that can help them to develop in each of these areas.

Buddy program

At Yarraman oaks we recognise that our younger students look to our older students as role models. This allows us to coach the older students in how to lead others in a kind and respectful way. We have a buddy program that we develop with our prep and grade 5 students. This is so the preps will have a buddy for 2 years rather than 1 which gives students more time to make Yarraman oaks their home and alows the grade 5 students to be exposed to a leadership role for a long period of time.

Walktober

Each October, as part of the Walk to school health initiative, our school has a healthy living focus, particularly with increasing our physical activity levels. During this month, activities are organised during recess and lunches to encourage and support our community to move! Much fun is had by all.

Social Groups

We provide many opportunities for children to engage and thrive in our school community. From craft groups, to interest groups, these run all year long during Recess and Lunch times.

Environment Group

Students from across all year levels, enjoy getting their hands dirty, whilst planting, tending and harvesting our school vegetable garden and various flower gardens. Students love caring for our school chickens who work hard to fertilise our gardens and recycle our scraps from Breakfast Club. The eggs collected are raffled off each Friday. Students in the Environment Group are also responsible for our school recycling program. This program aims to reduce our impact on the environment through the recycling of paper and plastic. Students have an opportunity to learn first-hand how they can reduce landfill and take positive action to care for their environment.
