At Suncoast we are committed to the idea of a growth mindset. We commonly use the language speaking about growth in character, growth in learning and growth in faith.
Earlier this week, we celebrated our first day of “Grow Week” by starting our day together in The Common. We had some fun with audience charades, were lead in worship by our staff worship team, heard from our Head of PE who ran in the Blackall 50 this weekend and took some time to reflect in what areas we personally need to grow.
We discussed that the conditions for growth often involve a willingness to overcome fear, to take on challenges and to extend ourselves. We spoke about the Biblical example of Moses the reluctant leader who stepped out in faith to grow and ultimately to lead the nation of Israel.
We will continue on Tuesday with separate boys and girls sessions and we will focus on growth and identity. Students will be challenged to consider where we get our sense of self from.
