Last week was a great week as my exploits continue as a Mental Wellbeing Explorer: My sponsors and educational partners The Waverley Academy, have donated another €2000 to assist with the development of the Winning Minds Movement
Thanks to Jennifer Lynch and the Students at Roslyn Park College for a marvelous experience. The following is some feedback from students “I will focus on my strengths in future instead of always thinking of my weaknesses”
Today was our second class in our ‘Mindset For Success’ series at Roslyn Park College, and the numbers have grown from day 1. We started by talking about strengths, abilities, passions and things to be thankful for. (its called ‘strengths based learning’ and is a great way to lift the moods of learners)
For many years I’ve championed the importance of mindset for achieving in education, its one of the reasons I started the Winning Minds Movement, to create awareness of its importance. But here’s the good thing, its not just my opinion there’s a body of evidence from experts to support it.
I wrote the other day about a privileged occasion and presenting at Learning Tech Labs meetup Wednesday evening. But there’s another privileged occasion that day. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet a visionary called Jennifer Lynch. Jennifer is a support teacher at National Learning Network, Roslyn Park College.
