Positive Thinking - Weekly Wellbeing Update


BIS_Positive Thinking - Weekly Wellbeing Update


Positive thinking is a mental and emotional attitude that focuses on the bright side of life and expects positive results.

This week, our Year 11 students continued to focus on a series of lessons aimed at developing a positive body image and the negative role that can be played by the media in propagating a sense of a ‘perfect body’, whilst our Year 8 students were focusing on ‘connecting with friends’.  


Many of us as adults have experienced these types of dilemmas in life and can perhaps share some insight with our children about how the results that we hope for can very often depend on whether we are able to think positive.
