Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community


What does joyful mean?

A deep sense of contentment with life.

If I am being Joyful I can:

  • Find joy in every day.
  • Have an infectious joy that others can’t help but catch.
  • Practice gratitude.
  • Reframe even the most difficult challenges in order to overcome them.
  • Find joy in every activity, whatever the circumstances.
  • Celebrate small and big achievements.
  • Appreciate the people around me and value the contribution they make.
  • Look out for those who are feeling sad and work hard to include them and help them feel happier.
  • Show gratitude to others.
  • What makes you happy? Make some time to do it.
  • Do something fun – build a fort, play a game.
  • Dance like no-ones watching.
  • Spread joy – smile at someone and say hello.
  • Write down three things you are grateful for.
  • Draw a picture of someone and write why you are grateful for them and the things they do.
  • On a tricky day, find one thing that was positive.
