What a great start to the term!
There was a real “buzz in the air” yesterday and it was lovely to see so many smiley faces walking through our Primary building doors. The “buzz” is still very much alive today and I’ve been very impressed with students’ enthusiasm, sense of responsibility and thirst for learning. It’s such a happy place to be!
At our Welcome Assembly yesterday, I encouraged students to be brave and adopt a growth mindset this year. I showed them a video clip where Piper, a cute little bird, learned to become “comfortable with the uncomfortable” by being courageous and adopting a growth mindset. If you were unable to attend our Assembly, I encourage you to watch the below clip and discuss it with your child(ren). You may even want to share personal examples with them of situations where you, as a child or as an adult, have needed “to be like Piper” and be brave when facing uncomfortable situations. From personal experience, being authentic and vulnerable with our children helps them better understand and cope with the world around them. Hope you enjoy!
