During the Lower and Upper Primary assemblies last Friday our educational psychologist Vivienne Scott talked to the children about being a good friend. The assemblies were run in a workshop format, with the children being actively involved. They got to tell the person sitting next to them what they like about them and then they reflected over how it feels to say and hear kind words.
The word assertive was also discussed and the children were given examples of what it is to be assertive and showed some impressive understanding of the term and the importance of standing up for people around us and respecting the rights and beliefs of others.
The story of how Gilbert the Goat learns to show respect was showed and much appreciated by the children, who then discussed how to be careful about their friends and how to treat others with respect.
We are very proud of how friendly our children are in school and how caring they are about their friends.
