In the lead up to Cultural Diversity Week (21 - 29 March), we will be holding a parent evening which aims to engage families from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Backgrounds in conversation about supporting students and contribution to community life at the College.
This week we launch the Benefit Mindset Challenge. The challenge is an annual commitment to working towards being a more compassionate community that is inspired to act in service of others.
In a Benefit Mindset we not only seek to fulfil our potential, but choose to do it in a way that contributes to the wellbeing of others and society as a whole. We question why we do what we do and believe in doing good things for good reasons.
A benefit mindset is symbolised by the everyday leader. We believe in creating a good society and healthy ecosystems through our everyday interactions. We are compassionate presences, trustworthy companions and aware contributors. We are the open-minded and open-hearted ones that show up, see what is needed and take wise action.
Whereas a growth mindset encourages development, a benefit mindset encourages development in service of life. We believe in using our strengths and our development to make valuable contributions to others and the world.
