Assembly Item - Setting Goals

At today's assembly I shared a story about a visit to Room 5. I went into Room 5 today and was inspired by the conversation they were having about goal setting. We talked about the importance of knowing why you are setting goals.
My challenge to everyone is to set themselves a goal every day and to think carefully about why it is important to them.
Do you think it is important to understand why you have a goal?

One really easy way to start children thinking about how to set goals is through what I call a GLP - this stands for Grateful, Learned and Promise. A GLP is an easy to use way to establish the type of thinking that can lead to goals further down the track. Try it at the dinner table!
