As you will be aware, the school has taken on The Resilience Project as part of the Wellbeing Program to help develop resilient and happy young men. One of the key principles of this program is Gratitude. Practicing gratitude is a way of focussing on the positive things in our lives and appreciating what we have rather than what we don’t have. I encourage parents/guardians to bring this theme into their homes and work in partnership with the College in helping your sons develop a sense of hope – a powerful mindset in the health and wellbeing of any person. The following link contains information about the significant benefits of gratitude; Gratitude. Below is a list of questions which parents/guardians can use with their sons:
- What were three things that went well for you today?
- Who is someone you feel really grateful for today? Tell us why.
- What is it about our home that makes it our home/special family place?
- What is something you are looking forward to tomorrow?
