It isn’t always easy to get up in front of others and perform or deliver a speech. This week, we have seen some outstanding Voice of Youth speeches, but I know that not every year 6 child enjoys the experience. What is wonderful to see is every child giving it a go and for some, that means really challenging themselves and being brave. This is what experiences like our Voice of Youth competition or our Talent Show can encourage students to do, get out of their comfort zone and try new things. It is a good way to build resilience in our children as they can see that they can try something that is hard for them, but they will get through it with support from family and friends. Then there is a sense of accomplishment and feeling proud of themselves for being brave and trying.
Our Talent Show is coming up soon. This can be a way that your child might like to try something new by getting up and showing off a talent to our community. You can encourage your child to give it a go, knowing that our community will be very supportive and cheer them on. We can’t wait to see what talents our community has!
Have a wonderful week,
