Anyone for a walk? Walking is such an understated activity. There is little or no cost involved. There
are so many places to walk, even just around the block, yet we pass up exercise for the smallest of
excuses. Research shows that regular walking modifies your nervous system
so much that you’ll experience a decrease in anger and hostility.
It is just amazing to see two people, or a group of walkers just striding away
and chatting. As winter approaches, let’s try to keep active and walk
the winter chill away. Mrs. Boake
Grade 4 News:
We are going to be very busy this term with experiments, learning about what makes a good leader
and using an Atlas. Last term was really special with them, and I can only hope that this term is even
better! Let’s keep reaching for the stars!
Dear Parents/ Guardians, 21 April 2023
I am dumb, and I am a failure. I do not deserve to be happy. I will never succeed in anything I do, and no
one will love me. People don’t even want to be around me. I let my parents, children, or friends down
because I am not enough.
These are the statements that consciously and unconsciously plague our minds on a daily basis. Some
mornings we regret the day before it has even begun. Negative self-talk shapes our entire perception of
ourselves. I, too, frequently make statements such as “I’m too dumb to help you with your Mathematics
or Physics homework” or “I’m not smart enough to do this or that.” It might seem like a harmless joke at
the time, but affirmations like that stick with you, and you start to embody what you vocalize.
Learn to be kinder to yourself. Pay attention to the comments you make about yourself and your abilities.
We are all on our own journey, and each of us has a different set of skills and attributes. Repeat after me:
“I’m not where I want to be, but I’m on my way”
