Happy Matariki! We caught up with our buddies from across the school and put on a Matariki Celebration. This kicked off with a waiata and then included Matariki workshops that our students prepared. We have been thinking about how to practise Positive Purpose. This is about taking part in activities that benefit others. Positive Purpose helps our students to have a sense of responsibility for the world that they live in. There is evidence that doing things for others, and having a sense that life is purposeful and meaningful, contributes to students’ psychological and physical health!
“THE PURPOSE OF LIFE IS TO INCREASE
THE WARM HEART. THINK OF OTHER

SINCERELY. NO CHEATING.” The Dalai Lama
