The Power of a Compliment

The Power of a compliment

On the 10th October 2018 it was Mental Health Day and with 1 in 10 children suffering with mental disorders year 3 decided to have a class assembly on it. We looked at what mental health is and who can be affected by a mental health disorder. We spoke about how we could help ourselves when we are struggling mentally and then discussed that it was ok to not be ok and the power of compliments. The children all came in this morning to a compliment on their desk and they all said it made them feel happy and smile. We then gave ourselves the challenge to pass on compliments, to make others feel as good as we did when we came in this morning.

Some quotes from the children

“It made me feel supported”

“It made me feel loved”

“It made me feel cared for”
