Life in Cedar Class
Genius is one percent inspiration and 99% perspiration. – Thomas Edison
In Cedar Class, we are working hard on developing our growth mindset and using challenges as opportunities. We support each other and ourselves by recognising the importance of mistakes and persevering to do better next time.
We know that everyone has their own strengths and talents and know that we can accomplish more by working together than any of us can on their own. We are building the independent working skills that will help us as we transition to secondary school, and the teamwork skills that will help us throughout our lives.
We are curious about what is going on in the world around us and enjoy sharing our knowledge with our peers!
