On August 5 Ned’s Mindset Mission will be visiting the school for a performance at 8.35 am in the Hall.
What is Ned’s Mindset Mission?
Throughout the performance, students discover how to activate their growth mindset to overcome social, emotional and academic challenges. Inspiring students to:
N - Never give up - Understand the Power of Yet
E - Encourage others - Spark Courage in other people
D - Do your best always be learning and growing
NED’s Mindset Mission is a positive behaviour assembly visiting our school! A performer takes our students on a 45-minute journey filled with storytelling, illusions, yo-yo tricks and humour. The assembly introduces the character NED who is on a very important mission to find his mindset. Our students will be inspired by how NED faces unexpected challenges with a growth mindset. NED’s message and memorable friends inspire students, promote academic achievement, and support our school goals. NED will become a positive role model at both school and at home.
For over 25 years, Ned's Mindset Mission has used yo-yo tricks in their school performances. They share that while yo-yoing is cool and simple, it’s not always easy. Everyone who learns to yo-yo will make mistakes along the way. Students are told that if they try yo-yoing, it’s important to learn from mistakes and never give up. Teachers and parents often see children practice persistence and find great fulfillment in doing their personal best as they learn to yo-yo with NED. Best of all, this “NED mindset” is infinitely transferable to school subjects!How it works - A Pay it Forward System:
Yo-yos let schools host the show without using money from their budget. If a school chooses to participate in the Pay it Forward, which St Joseph's Wandal is, they get the performance and follow-up teacher resources for free. Then, they host a Pay-It-Forward sale of NED yo-yos. When families choose to purchase a yo-yo, they don’t just get a tool for helping their child practice persistence, they’re also helping to send NED's Mindset Mission to the next school!
Our school will be having a NED sale of yo yos starting on Monday 5th August, the day of the performance, and will continue until Friday 9th. There will be a designated area in the office. There will also be a NED zone where the children can learn skills and practise with their yo yos. It would be great to support the NED show so that it can continue to spread the positive messages to other schools. More information will be sent home in the next newsletter regarding the sale of yo yos.
