'GET INVOLVED' & 'STAND UP FOR OTHERS' & 'BE A PHILANTHROPIST'

During JAWSS today, grade 6s wrote 5 different ways they felt they could Get Involved at George Waters or their community this year. Here is an example of a what a grade 6 student wrote:
JAWSS is mainly about relationships. Today was our second meeting so time was also spent getting to know each other in their JAWSS group.
In this activity students wrote down two things about themselves they wanted to share on a piece of paper. Then they crumpled their paper and threw somewhere in the room. Then each student found a crumpled piece of paper, opened it up and had to find the person who wrote on it. They got introduced and began to learn about each other.
Ask your child how they plan to fulfill their responsibility of the 3 Levels of Sharkdom.
