EDITOR’S NOTICE BOARD

Hello and welcome to our October edition! October is definitely a sporting month. This year is the first year we have the AFL Grand Final Eve as a public holiday! It is great news to all the AFL fans. But even if you don’t follow footy; it is still nice to have a day off and a long weekend! Long live AFL! We try not to talk about politics in this magazine. However this Is just so noticeable that I have to say, it only took my baby’s shower time to change the Prime Minister of Australia! I am serious. I had just finished showering Pasha, was walking out of bathroom and found that the Tony is out and Malcolm is in and all over the news. Jaw dropped! Since Spring arrived, there have suddenly been so many activities I can enrol my kids in. How about you? Have you tried local play centres, music and yoga classes, kids’ eat free meals, golf and concerts? Go through our magazine and you will keep your kids occupied this school holiday. We are running a competition again to win two family entries to Cheeki Botz. Check page 7. It is actually not that hard to win. Move your fingers and there you are, winning, winning, winning! Last but not least, take care, hay-fever victims!

Congratulations to the winners of Mulgrave Country Club’s sixty-dollar voucher competition: Sharlene Connors & Liz Williamson!

John comes out of retirement to work in Aged Care

W

orking in government for many years meant transi oning into a career in aged care was a huge change for Employease student John. As well as the significant change in jobs, John was also facing coming out of re rement and ge ng back into study as a very mature student. Having last studied during his secondary school years he found se ling down to study again was a challenge, but John was determined to have a job that he enjoyed and that kept him busy. Simple measures such as keeping a diary and alloca ng specific evenings to study meant that John was not just able to complete the course but also receive comments from trainers such as “an excellent assignment, one of the best I've seen,” which he holds as his proudest achievement within the course. A er working hard for six months and ge ng his cer ficate, John had a job close to home within a few weeks. He states that he feels extremely confident in the workplace and doesn't worry about tasks such a li ing as the manual handling skills he learned within the course prepared him for what actually occurs. John saw his work placement as an extremely important component of the course as it was great exposure to what work would be like, there is nothing like real work experience to prepare you for employment. Overall John believes that Employease has made coming out of re rement a comfortable and easy process and now plans to study in the disability field to further extend his knowledge. If you would like to know more about your Government Funded training opportunity call Charley on 97612156.

Eczema is very common in Children One in Five Children could suffer from Eczema Although eczema affects all ages, it usually appears in early childhood and disappears around six years of age. In fact, more than half of all eczema suffers show signs within their first 12 months of life and 20 percent of children develop eczema before the age of five. There is no need to be embarrassed by your child’s eczema - you are not alone. Eczema also known as atopic dermatitis is a very itchy rash. Much of the skin damage comes from scratching and rubbing that the child cannot control. The exact cause is not known, but it results from a combination of family heredity and a variety of conditions in everyday life that triggers the red, itchy rash. There is no cure for eczema but in most cases it is manageable and remission can be achieved. Tirant Good Skin Clinic is recognized as one of the world leaders in the treatment of psoriasis, eczema and other chronic skin conditions. The practitioners at the clinic specialize in Complementary Dermatology combining medical research science with best of bio herbal research to achieve outstanding results. Over the last 30 years.

DON’T MISS THIS UNIQUE EXPERIENCE Following sold-out performances in 2014 and 2015, Attilla Sautov will be channelling more of his immense creative energy into this classical/rock extravaganza. He will blend classical masterpieces with contemporary rock in an eclectic melting pot of music. With his 1812 violin, and backed up by his Symphonic Rock Ensemble, he will amaze with music that is sure to stir a range of emotions. The varied program will feature modern classics from Michael Jackson, Sting, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Coldplay and Aerosmith as well as rock arrangements of classical compositions from Paganini, Bach, Vivaldi and Mozart. It will also include Explosive, Palladio as well as Russian, Italian, Brazilian and Irish folk music. Any concert with Attilla Sautov is an astounding experience. Attilla rivals the world's best violinists with his incredible virtuosic skills. He has conquered some of the most difficult violin compositions in history, and his command of the instrument is nothing short of amazing. A child prodigy in Tashkent, Attilla went on to study in Moscow and then entertained audiences with an international classical solo career. He has performed in over forty countries, and has won prestigious international violin competitions. Along with Attilla's accolades, experience and incredible talent, he has a charismatic and spontaneous stage presence, which is a bonus for his new crossover style.

解读蒙特梭利教育 蒙特梭利教育在国内非常热门。虽然它比较 昂贵,不少有能力财力的家长还是会让孩子早点 接触这种教育理念。那么,究竟什么是蒙特梭利 教育?它有什么优势能让国内家长不惜重金?这 里将为家长们解密蒙特梭利教育。 一百年前,一位对后人影响深刻的博士—— 玛丽亚 蒙特梭利经过对儿童教育的研究,开发 了一种独特的教育方式,这就是现当代闻名的蒙 特梭利教育。 蒙特梭利教育激发孩子对学习的热爱。通过 营造一个学习环境,对孩子因人制宜使用不同的 活动项目和器材,来鼓励孩子学习的主动性。这样的学习方式使得孩子自信,自我约束, 自我欣赏,从而由内而外培养了积极向上的社交品质。这种教育方式为孩子日后一生的学 习都奠定了基础。 纵观今日世界,教育之重在于让孩子自我激励,才能发挥百分百潜能。蒙特梭利教育 重视的是孩子整个身心发展还有孩子与社会的联系,与今日社会的联系,与未来的联系。 蒙特梭利教育始于孩子三岁,一直到孩子六岁。这样设计的原因是孩子从出生到六岁的阶 段是海绵体,就是大脑会像海绵一样吸收学到的知识,这是一种近乎天才的能力,这种能 力可以使他们模仿语言,完善动作还有消化指令。蒙特梭利博士观察到孩子成长过程也有 敏感阶段。在敏感阶段里,小孩子会被特定的刺激源吸引,而这些刺激源能使他们获得知 识和能力。基本上这些阶段发生在每个小孩身上的时间类似,这个阶段就是就是获得某些 知识和机能的最佳时期。 从3到6岁小孩子经历了一个自我塑造的过程。蒙特梭利理念的实际应用还有特殊设 计的器材都使孩子能够吸收知识和完善这个自我塑造的过程。学前班一共有四个主要教育 范围:动手能力,神经感应,语言和数学。教学重点也会放在:创造性艺术,音乐,科 学,地理和文化学习。小孩子对于家庭第一文化的学习是孩子第一阶段学习的中心与动 力。 学前班的学习环境是驱使这种动力的土壤,把整个世界带到孩子脚下。地球,地 图,音乐,土地模式,不同种族生活的照片展示等等,都是蒙特梭利教育的特点,在这种 教育下成长的小孩更能感知身边的世界。 墨尔本有几所蒙特梭利学前班,学费都是可以接受的范围,并且不同于一般的幼儿 园,时间比较长,对于双职工家长也有比较多灵活的选择。也有蒙特梭利小学,一般只接 收读完蒙特梭利学前班的儿童。有的家长担心读完蒙特梭利,会错过正常小学的一年级, 其实可以选择蒙特梭利小学,或者直接让孩子进入正常小学读2年级。希望大家通过这篇 文章能了解蒙特梭利教育,也欢迎大家来信探讨。 部分内容选自澳大利亚蒙特梭利教育联盟刊登的内容,更多信息,请参考: http://www.montessori.org.au/ 蒙特梭利学前班 联系电话:03 9545 0764 地址:751-755 Ferntree Gully Road, Wheelers Hills, VIC 3150 邮箱:mariamontessori@optusnet.com.au
