High on Habits

‘If you inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader’.  John Quincy Adams.

High on Habits sessions are conducted in Term 2 and focus intensely on the 7 Habits. Workbooks for each student are used to support these sessions.

An essential component of the school’s The Leader in Me Program, is teaching the students all about the 7 Habits. This is done on a regular basis by classroom teachers, together with a special program, ‘High on Habits’. The children are put into mixed groups – Juniors (Kinder, Year One and Year Two) and Seniors (Years Three, Four, Five and Six) and they meet regularly with a teacher to develop their understandings and learn how to actively live the habits.

The aim is to further develop their understanding of each habit and how to put it into practice in their own lives.

The Habit of Choice: Making a Difference- Taking responsibility for your life

2  BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND

The Habit of Vision:  Problem Solving- Define your mission and goals in life

3  PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST

The Habit of Integrity and Execution- Prioritise and do the most important things first

4  THINK WIN-WIN

The Habit of Mutual Benefit- Have an 'everyone can win' attitude

5  SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND- THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD

The Habit of Mutual Understanding- Listen to people sincerely with your mind and your heart

6  SYNERGISE

7  SHARPEN THE SAW

The Habit of Renewal- Take time to balance your life

During the program, the students will explore each habit by sharing ideas, completing activities and discussing ways in which they can be incorporated into every facet of school life.

Staff are expected to regularly review their commitment to the 7 Habits and their use in their everyday life.

As well as classroom displays, the school environment reflects TLIM with Habits’ Hollow providing wonderful visuals including a Habits’ Tree, leadership sign, Habits’ road signs, mural, chess board and seating and all aimed at promoting TLIM. The new school hall also has quotes around the wall that are related to the 7 Habits.
