In our Dean’s Assembly the idea of the growth mindset was introduced. The growth mindset is a way of thinking that means that no matter what your experience or the feedback or the messages you got, you will always look to find the learning and use this to grow into a better person. It’s the idea that we can grow and change and learn no matter what. A growth mindset embraces challenges, puts in effort, uses feedback to improve, and knows that hard work is needed to learn.
This video today contains powerful messages that you can take on board heading into the end of the year, that you have the power to be who you want to be. To focus on growth and development. To maximise the good that you all have inside of you. It is worth reflecting on and using to amp yourself up for a fantastic exam season ahead!
For more information about the Growth Mindset have a listen to Carol Dweck’s TED talk on the power of believing that you can improve.
