Term Four Begins!

We are back from our holidays and we are ready for our final term of 2016!

It was great to hear about everyone’s holiday adventures and the students enjoyed sharing their highlights from the past two weeks.

To reflect on their holidays, students wrote in their gratitude journals.

We learnt about gratitude during The Resilience Project presentation a few weeks ago. Martin Heppell explained the importance of gratitude. Gratitude is also part of our Positive Education program at BHPS.

Gratitude is defined as the quality of being thankful, readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.

Students started their gratitude journals at the end of last term. Each day, students record three things they are grateful for. Today, students wrote about what they are grateful for from their holidays.
