Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders; and here at Adderley Primary School, we are working hard to develop the best, most well-prepared leaders for the future. There are some books that have become timeless additions to the library. "The 7 Habits of Happy Kids" © by Sean Covey is one of those books.
Children at Adderley learn about “The 7 Habits of Happy Kids” throughout the year. As children learn and practice the strategies from this book, they become better prepared for pupil leadership roles throughout the school!
"The 7 Habits of Happy Kids" teaches children in a fun, creative way:
7 Habits of Happy Kids are as follows;
First Start With You
1. Be Proactive: You’re in charge
2. Begin with an End in Mind: Have a Plan
3. Put First Things First: Work First, Then Play
Then Work Well With Others
4. Think Win-Win: Everyone Can Win
5. Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood: Listen Before You Talk
6. Synergize: Together is Better
Always Remember to Take Care of Yourself
7. Sharpen the Saw: Balance Feels Best
Set in the Seven Oaks and centred around eight primary characters, your children will come to love the stories and you’ll appreciate the practical applications.
The book is artfully illustrated and presents issues that are extremely relevant; for example, one story is titled “I’m Bored”, which attacks the “It’s your job to entertain me” issue that all parents face.
