Thank you to staff, students and parents for the amazing way in which the year has commenced at Berwick. The theme of Be the Hands and Heart of God has been evident in many ways this term including:
This initiative is fast becoming a welcomed tradition on the campus calendar. It is about being mindful in the art of paying it forward.
For the last 21 days, students and staff have made a conscious effort to extend kindness and gratitude in many different ways to others in an effort to make others feel welcome, supported and connected as a school community. Some examples include; tidying lockers areas, notes of gratitude to teachers, smiling at someone you don’t know and implanting a daily good deed like carrying someone’s books to class.
Below is an explicit example from Ms Rebecca Connors’ Care Group where all students took the time to write individual expressions of thanks and gratitude to local workers at Coles Supermarket at Eden Rise given the pressure many of them had been under due to the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak.
See two examples from Raphaell Wagner (7 White) and Tae Rooke (9White) – great effort!
