Seniors had a TED talk in assembly this week continuing on the theme of success. Ms Moon led the assembly which looked at the latest research on pupil success – it wasn’t related to IQ but related to resilience, responsibility and learning from mistakes.
Mrs Jermutus also shared her experience of German schooling and how pupils are encouraged to take responsibility from a young age. Pupils were shocked to learn that primary aged children take the bus to school by themselves! The TED talk was by a former teacher who analysed successful children and those that had ‘grit’ showed the most promise. Ms Moon encouraged pupils to think about how they can show grit in their learning this term.
