Self Affirmation Station
At ISB we believe it's important to celebrate uniqueness, difference, personal interests, talents and qualities. We hope that our students not only recognise these qualities in others, but that they become their own cheerleaders, valuing and affirming what makes them special.
In a Junior School Student Council led initiative, students were introduced to the ‘Affirmation Station!’ A station for practicing what it means to speak to the self in a kind, affirming, encouraging and positive way.
Incorporating self affirmations and positive self talk into everyday life has been shown to impact positively on wellbeing, resilience and self-esteem, and encourages creative thinking, both for adults and kids!
There are many creative ways to encourage our children to develop a habit of self affirmation. Remembering, “How we talk to our kids becomes their inner voice”.
At ISB, we hope to empower all of our students to "believe in their selfie"...
