Elegregroe and his message: ‘We’ve got the power’ to be resilient, respectful, caring and sharing, a contributing student and being honest was received very well by all students.
To be resilient he said we have to be strong, Kia Kaha. The strong ones are those that are most successful and show resilience.
To help to build resilience we need to use our WITS. W = walk away. I = ignore. T = talk to someone. S = stop. “Next time I get annoyed by others, I’ll use my WITS!”
Respectful is the way we talk, the way we care, the way we look after our class mates, our personal belongings and appreciating that we’re all different. Respectful works well with the next value, caring and sharing.
To be a contributing student we need to look at ourselves to see how we’re helping others, contributing and participating, and stepping up across the school day.
He finish with the last value of ‘Honesty is the best policy.’
Some extremely important reminders of how we show The Rapaura Way.
