Art of Brilliance – Year 9 Drop Down Day

Art of Brilliance!

6th February 2019

We were delighted to welcome Art of Brilliance to work with year 9 today to develop life skills, resilience and how to stay positive! The team, who are Paul Field, Gary Thornton, Anthea Marris and Mike Martin, specialise in training and development to make you a more positive, motivated and brilliant person – how to be your best self. Year 9 learnt how to cultivate a ‘can do’ attitude and the positive psychology, humour and thought-provoking activities really gave them something to think about. Paul told the students how he had been shaking being on the 103rd floor in a glass box in Chicago and students reflected on what it was that made them feel worried and how to overcome obstacles on the journey of life. The students took part in a number of sessions through the day including ‘Our amazing brain!’ which taught them how to grow intelligence and how to be develop resilience skills.
