Within the Value of Truth that we are exploring this term, is the question; Is it uplifting? In other words, in our speech and our actions do we encourage and inspire those around us?
At times, we all get caught in negative thinking, self-doubt and procrastination. Having an encouraging friend, parent or teacher to talk with can be of great benefit. A positive perspective can enable us to see the truth in a situation that may need addressing and a practical way forward.
One of the defining elements of John Colet School is that we explore and embed our values as a whole school. We approach the learning of our values in a developmentally appropriate way which will differ depending on which age we are with, yet the core remains the same. This is just as valid for our staff and our supporting community. Our goal is that all may inspire!
