In Upper School we are preparing students for the future by teaching them the skills they will need to be successful beyond Ark Boulton. Students will begin each day by reflecting on their goals and challenges and planning for success; using the time between arrival at school and start of Future Skills to complete and review the weekly "My Journal" page of their Learning Journal. This page is designed to encourage students to:
- Take responsibility for organising their own time by independently identifying key tasks and monitoring their completion.
- Build self-confidence by indentifying successes.
- Become reflective problem solvers by independently identifying concerns and challenges and planning actions to overcome them.
- Encourage students to become emotionally reflective and honest by daily awareness of their own thoughts and feelings.
