  • Risk-taking

    I take risks when I am original and creative I take risks when I try something new I take risks when I use my initiative
  • Resilience

    I show resilience when I don’t give up I show resilience when I bounce back and move on I show resilience when I have a hopeful outlook, keep things in perspective and move forward
  • Reflection

    I understand reflection helps me make positive changes I understand that reflecting on my actions helps me make the right choices I understand that I can learn from others and that others can learn from me
