Growth Mindset Activities
Today, we presented an introductory Growth Mindset Drama Circle at the school Assembly.

Projects such as the drama circle and the videos involve many competencies across the curriculum, such as Communication & Collaboration, Creative Thinking, Language Arts, Drama and much more.
