Less screen time, more green time

Less screen time, more green time

What are you most looking forward to in 2019?. I always look forward to Term 4, not because of the approaching holidays, but because that is always the time when you recognise the great progress boys have made and there are always strong connections, basically you realise how great your class is!  On a personal note, I am really looking forward to returning to Spain and finish off the Camino ...

The Growth Mindset Revisited

The Growth Mindset Revisited

  1. Posted on May 9, 2019

If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning. That way, their children don’t have to be slaves of praise. They will have a lifelong way to build and repair their own confidence.” - Professor Carol Dweck. Last March I explored one of the current buzz phrases in education and parenting, the "Growth Mindset"....

What to do with our sleep-deprived sons?

  1. Posted on June 29, 2018

I asked my son what he wanted to do over the July school holidays. His response was a simple, but anxiety-inducing grumble: “SLEEP.” My mind raced to him telling me about friends who said they binge-watched Netflix shows and gamed into the early hours of the morning. I tried to think back through the past few weeks - was I always remembering to remove his devices at least an hour ...
