CHOOSE stands for

C = Clarity (of goals, direction and life purpose)Happy people set clear goals and determine clear and specific plans to ensure these goals become a reality. So clarify you life plan now (because no one else will do it for you!).
H = Healthy Living (activity & exercise, diet & nutrition, and sleep)Do whatever you can to be AS healthy as possible within your circumstances and you’ll also boost your chances of being happy.
O = Optimism (positive but realistic thinking)There’s no doubt that happy people think about themselves, others and the world differently. Among other things, they search for more positives. The good news is that this is something you can learn to do so start practicing now!
= Others (the key relationships in your life)Research strongly indicates that happy people have both more and better quality relationships. So make sure you devote time to developing and fostering your key relationships.
S = Strengths (your core qualities and attributes)Rather than spending all their time trying to ‘fix’ their ‘weaknesses’, happy people spend more time identifying and utilising their strengths. Find out what you’re good at and do it as much as possible.
E = Enjoy the moment (living in, and appreciate, the present)The past is history, tomorrow’s a mystery, and today’s a gift – that’s why they call it ‘the present’! Live in the moment and enjoy live more.



Our assembly presentation last Friday was a success. Well done everyone. We started with a reflection using ‘Everyday God” by Bernadette Farrell. Then we presented a RESILIENCE display which highlighted the strategies for overcoming challenges in our lives. To finish we sang the Will.I.Am and Sesame Street song, ‘What I Am’. We had a great time and the rest of the school really enjoyed all parts of the assembly. Well done to everyone. The songs can be found on our blog if you’d like to listen to them.
