BE INSPIRED BY MR COLDWELL’S VIRTUAL ASSEMBLY ABOUT GRATITUDE
The theme of Mr Coldwell’s first virtual Richmond School assembly is about gratitude. It’s a thought-provoking address and we hope all students will spare time to watch the assembly, parents may like to listen in too. You can watch the assembly here , we hope you enjoy it
Mr Coldwell focuses on being thankful and showing appreciation for other people, the benefits of gratitude and how we can go about showing gratitude in our own lives and through Richmond School. He gives numerous examples that we can draw on from the current lockdown situation, such as on a Thursday when we clap for the NHS and carers, our appreciation of other people who are supporting us every day such as the shop workers, delivery drivers, postmen, refuse workers, teachers among many others—groups who are vital to support us in our everyday life and to whom we are so grateful.
Appreciating the good things in life when things may be difficult has a positive impact on wellbeing. During the lockdown there are still things to be grateful for – being able to exercise, the lovely weather, spending time with our families, having technology to keep in touch with friends and school, to name but a few.
