We will know we are successful when we agree to:

  • Believe in ourselves,
  • Take risks in our learning,
  • Manage self,
  • Display leadership / initiative,
  • Show integrity,
  • Strive for excellence,
  • Take responsibility for our learning,
  • Set challenging learning goals,
  • Learn from our mistakes,
  • Show determination in all situations,
  • Work in unity,
  • Know ourselves as a learner,
  • Think happy thoughts (positivity is the key!),
  • Respect others’ rights to learn, to feel safe and to be respected,
  • Practice being a responsible digital citizen.

Reflective Questions to answer:
  1. How do you feel about these agreements? What do you like. Dislike? Why?

I like the belive in yourself because courage is rare if you make it rare. I half Disagree with “just practice” Only Perfect Practice make Perfect!

  1. Which agreements will you find easy to follow? Why?

Risk taking I do it every day whether it is in sport or science.

  1. Which agreements will you find difficult to follow? Why?

To work in unity I like doing stuff by myself.


  1. Thanks for your insightful comments about our class agreements Bella. It is great that you know yourself so well as a learner with regard to working with others. What are some strategies that you can have 'at the ready' for the times that you do need to work with others? Elly

  2. Great reflection Bella. I was the same as you with working by myself. Now that I get to work with some amazing other teachers I really enjoy working in a team. I am sure that our learning environment in Poutama will allow you to work alongside some great people too.
