At Waggrakine this year we have started to implement the PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies) program. This PATHS program is focused on social and emotional learning. We hope that the implementation of this program better equips our students to handle emotions positively, empathise and make responsible decisions.
During our PATHS sessions we have focused on complimenting at all levels. Each day one student is our PATHS Kid of the Day and they receive a compliment from the teacher, their peers, their family and themselves. Students are finding complementing themselves the most difficult but their peers are enjoying complementing their peers.
Here are a few compliments students have given during these sessions:
– You are a positive person who always listens when people are feeling down.
– You take life as it comes and you aren’t afraid to be different and step out of the crowd.
– You brighten our days with your smiling face every morning.
– You are a supportive friend and an amazing role model.
Please feel free to add any of your own compliments for students in TA 2.
