This week, Mrs Beer introduced us to the word “individuality”.
Some children had a good idea of what being an individual is: that we are all different – and that is a good thing!
We heard this Reading:
A Reading from the first letter of Samuel
But the Lord said to him, “Pay no attention to how tall and handsome he is. I have rejected him, because I do not judge as people judge. They look at the outward appearance, but I look at the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7
We talked about how it is our personality – the things that we cannot see – which also makes us an individual: how we show kindness, how we say “hello” every morning, how we help others, how we look after one another, how we give up our time for others, how we are always happy to support others, how we smile at others and so on.
Thank you for making us all different – for our unique personalities, quirks, gifts and talents.
Help us to recognise that these differences make us special.
Help us to understand that our school community is richer due to these differences which You have blessed us with and to celebrate our individuality.
Your mission this week is to recognise the things that make us individuals. To praise someone for something you love about them that makes them an individual. Go up to someone and say, “I really like the way you…” or “I really like that you…”. Let’s spread a positive vibe across our school community by recognising the uniqueness of each and every one of us!
Let us know how you achieve this week’s mission in the comments below.
