You can be who you want to be

20th September 19

This week we deepened our understanding of self-belief in the Upper and Lower School assemblies. Sophie, Year 6 School Reporter writes:
Monday’s Assembly was all about self-belief. We watched a clip on being who you want to be and believing in yourself. Miss Nicki explained that a lot of teachers showed self-belief over the holidays. Mr Paul trained to play the electric guitar. Miss Susan wrote a book and although she was told that she couldn’t do it, she persevered. Miss Lindsay signed up for the marathon, she didn’t think she could do it at first but she even won a medal. Equally, Miss Alice, Miss Michelle and Miss Charmaine showed incredible self-belief. 
As I always say: “You can be who you want to be.”

Self-Belief

12th September 19

Introducing our first goal of this term, Mr Ben addressed Upper and Lower School this week to inspire them about the importance of self-belief. With a can-do attitude, we can achieve anything if we set our mind to it. He highlighted that not only children need to show self-belief, but also adults are often faced with challenging situations which require them to believe in their own abilities and strengths.

Rosie, Year 6 School Reporter writes: “Monday’s assembly about self-belief was thrilling. kicking off with the delightful song, “Sing Hosanna,” which we all sang beautifully! Mr Ben’s well-chosen example of self-belief was about cricket player Ben Stokes rescuing England from losing sooner in The Ashes. He had been batting for an astonishing 330 minutes (5 hours and 30 minutes) in total!”

Mr Ben concluded the assembly with a powerful message: “Believing in yourself is the first secret to success!”


Welcome back!

Sicily, Year 6 School Reporter writes: “On the first day of term Mr Ben welcomed us all back to school. We felt excited to be top of the school as we found our seats in Trinity Chapel. We sang ‘A Little Bit of Kindness’ by Mark and Helen Johnson and everyone remembered the words from last year. When we got our responsibilities it was a great surprise, looking around all of our faces were smiling. Then we sang ‘Thank You for this World’ by Niki Davies and headed off to start our new year.”


Please note that the school is now closed until 14 April, when it will reopen for children whose parents are Key Workers.  Please contact office@fintonhouse.org.uk if you require any information.  We hope you are all keeping safe and well.
