As we continue with the theme of 7 Habits of Happy Kids, we moved onto habit 3 – ‘Put first things first”. This is probably one of the most difficult habits, because we are so used to doing the things that are the easiest or most enjoyable first, instead of what is actually important. We tend to procrastinate and put off the things that we don’t want to do, like studying for a test. I’m sure there are many of us that end up cramming for a test the night before, instead of preparing for it well in advance and eliminating the unnecessary stress that follows. Think about how good it would feel when we are prepared for this sort of thing. A wise person once said, “Do what you have to do, so you can do what you want to do.” [read more]
As you know our focus for this term are our seven healthy habits. Habits that we can implement and encourage in our daily lives and how we can be the best version of ourselves, both in and out of school and the workplace.
For this week we looked at our second healthy habit, begin with the end in mind – “have a long term plan”. We are so quick to react and respond without thinking ahead, as a result we are never completely aware of the outcome.
encourage us to all try start planning ahead, think about where it is we want to go and what it is we would like to achieve at the end. Remember it’s not how we start something, it’s how we end. [read more]

Welcome to 2020 all Riverside Rovers. My word for the year is “COURAGE”. To quote Rev TD Jakes, “It takes courage to be successful. It is far easier not to be successful. Misery will always have company. If you don’t want to make waves, be mediocre, be normal and fit in.” “It takes courage to be different, it takes courage to go where you’ve never gone before. It takes courage to WIN.” “It takes courage to be exceptional, it takes courage to be wise, it takes courage to be knowledgeable”. So come on learners of Riverside, find your COURAGE for 2020 and shine.
