5: Personal Learning Goal of the Month!

For the last month of the academic year, the Personal Learning Goal focus will be built around Hope students being “Resilient”. This is an important goal to focus on at the end of the school year as students make the final push towards the end, finishing the year positively and with purpose. Students can demonstrate being resilient in the following ways:

  • Having a positive attitude, even when they are not immediately successful at an activity.

  • Seeking out help only when they truly need it, having strategies to support them when they are stuck with their learning.

  • Realising learning takes effort and investing this effort into challenging tasks.

  • To keep trying, even when learning is challenging and to improve through further practice.

Please encourage your child in demonstrating this month's goal by discussing how they have demonstrated being resilient outside of school life too!
