During the last 6 weeks the boys from Grades three and four have been participating in the Rock and Water Program. Here the boys were taught about knowing when to adopt a Rock attitude which is to stand up and protect what you truly believe in and when to adopt a Water attitude, which is knowing what to let go of those things which aren’t worth fighting for and so avoiding any potential conflict.
These concepts were taught through a series of games which required the boys to determine which attitude to use for each of the games. Sometimes Rock is needed and sometimes Water. The program also covered how to protect ourselves from bullying or aggressive behaviour so that we know what to say and do if we are threatened.
Overall it was a fun way of teaching some really important life-long skills which the boys will be able to adopt at various times during their life journey.
