I had a great day this week out at the Diocesean Cross Country Carnival. The best part of the day was seeing the students give their best when they were racing. Sometimes it is easy to try hard and give it everything when you can see another person running next to you. It can be harder when you are trying to improve something like marks or grades in the classroom. This is when you are trying to beat yourself, always pushing yourself a bit harder to learn something new.
This is what we call a growth mindset. We are always trying to encourage a growth mindset in our students, so that they know that if something is hard, we need to push ourselves to try hard and push ourselves to be our best. It’s just like a cross country race. Today was hot out on the track, but the runners just kept going. It can be hard learning new things, but we have to encourage our students to keep on trying, even when it’s hard.
Our teachers are always encouraging students to try a little bit harder, learn something new and be their best!
Have a wonderful week,
