Building Harmony Resilience Day Reflection

Berwick Grammar School has been lucky enough to participate in the wonderful Building Harmony Program for yet another year. The Year 6 students at BGS attended 3 events with 5 other schools that are also located in Officer. These schools include St Brigid’s School, Minaret College, Maranatha Christian College, Officer Primary School and Officer Specialist School. Our final event of the year was a day based on resilience and the transition to Year 7. The students engaged in meaningful conversations about what resilience is and played games that encouraged them to show initiative and be risk-takers. Time was also allocated to allow students time to reflect on what they learned through the Building Harmony Program this year. We were very fortunate to be involved in this program for another year. The boys benefited from spending time with students from other schools and of different cultures and backgrounds and appeared to learn a lot about the school’s surrounding us at BGS.
