1.30pm – 2.30pm – NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS

Miss Jen asked the children if they knew what a resolution was ? Volicia had a fair idea and shared her knowledge of the word with the group. Miss Jen started with her example that she would vow to love herself more. The children liked that idea and all agreed they would do that too although some of them said they love themselves so much already and think they are amazing which was so wonderful to hear.

We then went around in a circle and each child told us theirs while Miss Jen wrote them all done down on their own special RESOLUTION page. Many of the boys said they would like to be better at soccer. Having Mr Dayne who is Pro soccer player as their OSHC & Vacation care main man was more than happy to tell the boys he can help them with that no worries at all and told them how awesome he thought they were at such a young age already.

Kai said he would try harder in class. Many of the children agreed that they too would try harder in class as we all can get a little chatty and distracted at times but they know they are all very clever which was also so lovely to hear them speak such positive words about themselves. Scout said she would spend more time playing with the lovely things people buy her and spend less time watching TV and so it went on hearing all the great resolutions of our awesome team.

Each morning in Before school care we do our positive affirmations we decided we would add weekly resolutions to help us work towards being the best we can be.

During the afternoon Miss Jen asked who could remember what our friends had said their resolutions were ? Scout, Julius & Taj won an ice block each as they answered the most correctly as we also talked about how important it is to listen to others when they are talking about special things about themselves. The other children were delighted to hear that they had been listening and remembered what they had said. Well done team !!

The word for 2021 will not be COVID as it has seemed to be in 2020, it will be POSITIVE !! 🙂 We are all looking forward to a wonderful year as we all deserve 100%.
