Primary High Notes 9th February 2024
Yesterday marked a truly magnificent celebration of music in the Senior School. The talent displayed in Senior House Music was nothing short of extraordinary. The students’ dedication and passion for music shone brightly. We now turn our attention to the Primary House Music Final which will take place on Thursday 7th March. The excitement in the Junior Hall was palpable last week when Mrs Cooke announced that the theme for House Choirs would be SING! I look forward to this wonderful event next half term.
In my assembly yesterday I asked the children to do the Superhero pose. This was not just a fun way to mimic the Man of Steel, it can actually boost your confidence and mood. Research suggests that assuming this confident posture, even for just a couple of minutes, can have tangible effects on your psyche. The act of expanding your body sends signals to your brain that you are confident and capable. Your cortisol levels decrease, reducing stress, while testosterone levels increase, promoting assertiveness. So, whether you are gearing up for a big presentation, a nerve-wracking exam, performing in House Music, or just need a little boost of self-assurance before tackling your to-do list, strike the Superhero pose and feel the difference it can make.
