Well-being at Ninian Park Primary
At Ninian Park Primary School we do everything we can to help our pupils thrive. We understand that if you do not feel happy and safe you cannot be your best self and achieve all you are capable of. All our staff have received training on the Thrive philosophy, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and positive relationships. We use this training to help our pupils identify their emotions and understand how they can affect our actions.
Growing up is about learning to get along with other people and understanding who you are in the world. We work with children to recognise that there are actions that you can control and those that you cannot. Where you have control, you need to make good choices (i.e. think how your actions or words will affect others for the better). Where you do not have control, you need to realise that you can still control how you react, and that there might be others around you who can help you to make those good choices.
Below are some video clips that we have used to show children how being kind and "passing it forward" can make the world a better place. As Ghandi said -
“It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there'll be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
