Gratitude

Koru 2 And The Science Of Character

As part of Character Day we have been looking closely at our own character strengths. Many of our character strengths are in line with the New Zealand Curriculum Key Competencies and our school values.

Over the weeks we have studied ourselves very closely. Here are some of the questions aimed at provoking our thinking in this area. We also learnt some new language for example the difference between appreciation and gratitude.
Our Thought Provoking Questions

  • I am grateful for..... (gratitude or appreciation)
  • What did you do in the past year that you're most proud of?
  • What is optimism?


We viewed different digital media and this got us thinking.



  • What character strengths are shown here?
  • What could this person do to develop these further?
  • 30,000 Days- We are only on this Earth for approximately 30,000 days. The film talks about our unique special sauce: the character strengths that make  us.



From here we created a slideshow about our own character strengths. These can also can be viewed in  our Google Slide accounts.
