Senior High Notes 17th May 2024

In today’s assembly, I shared a unique and humorous story about Shreddies, a well-loved breakfast cereal brand. Back in 2008, an innovative advertising campaign transformed Shreddies simply by changing its perspective—literally. By rotating the cereal square 45 degrees, they rebranded it as “Diamond Shreddies,” sparking curiosity and amusement among consumers. This clever twist not only revitalized the brand but also highlighted the power of changing our viewpoint.

This story beautifully illustrates the importance of mindset and how reframing a situation can dramatically alter our experience. The cereal itself remained unchanged, yet its new image created a fresh, engaging narrative. Similarly, with exams approaching next week, it’s crucial for our students to view them not as daunting hurdles, but as golden opportunities to showcase their hard-earned knowledge and skills.

Just as Diamond Shreddies turned an ordinary cereal into something exciting, I encouraged our students to see their exams as a celebration of their growth and learning. This shift in perspective can transform stress into motivation and challenge into triumph. Let’s support them in embracing this positive mindset, ready to shine brightly and achieve their best.

I encourage you to take some time to listen to our Safeguarding Corner podcasts. These offer valuable insights into key issues affecting young people today. Should you have any questions or need further support, please do not hesitate to contact our pastoral team.
