Week 7 & 8's key to success

You Can Do It - Getting Along
Our You Can Do It focus for week 7 & 8 is the Getting Along key. Positive Habits of the Mind that help develop Getting Along behaviour in a young person include:
·        Being Tolerant of Others - accepting that everyone acts unfairly towards others some of the time, and not making overall judgements of people's character based on their differences or behaviour.
·        Thinking First - thinking that when someone treats me badly I need to think about different ways I can react, the consequences of each, and the impact of my actions on the other peron's feelings.
·        Playing by the Rules - thinking that by following important school and home rules I will live in a better world where everyone's rights are protected.
·        Social Responsibility - thinking that it is important to be caring, to try hard to do my best, to be fair to others, to make sure that everyone has the freedom to say what they think and feel without fear, to be honest and tell the truth, to have integrity by making sure that I do what I say I am going to do, to respect others and have nice manners, to act responsibly by making good choices, sorting out problems without fighting, caring about nature and other living things, and to be understanding and including others who are different.
