A huge thanks to the parents/carers who came along yesterday evening for a workshop on Growth Mindset from the Live-N-Learn trainer. Jennifer.  Parents/carers learned about Growth Mindset, how to build resilience and to develop confidence.  Jennifer also delivered an assembly yesterday to the whole school and workshops continue today to be delivered over P3-7.

The feedback from children has been very positive –

Dylan, P3 – ‘ I learned to never give up and to keep trying.’

Aimee, P3 – ‘I learned that I have to keep trying and mistakes are okay.’

Emma, P3 – ‘ I learned that we have thousands of brain cells.¬† I learned that it’s okay if you make a mistake.’
