The Robert Rundle School Success Night is an annual event celebrating a year of learning and growth with all of the families. This year's Success Night is on Thursday, May 31, 2018, with the theme "Think Outside the Box." Families are invited into classrooms to learn and play together. Play is important in the learning and development of children.
"At play, children are empowered to learn on their own terms, in their own ways, and in their own time; this freedom is what distinguishes play from other activities. Play allows children to take the initiative, to test their physical and mental limits, and to explore positions of power and questions about good and evil.In play, children use words and symbols to transform the world around them, creating worlds where they can act 'as if' rather than 'as is.' Play is a pleasurable and highly motivating context in which children can explore possibilities and solve problems that are beyond their reach in ordinary life."
