This is what our Children think of ‘Be the best you can be' 


“BTBYCB means you never give up and keep trying”

 “You try really hard at doing things you couldn’t do before by stepping out of your comfort zone”

“It has helped me to persevere and try to do better in all my work” 

“ Be The Best You Can Be has taught me to step out of my comfort zone and challenge myself”


Year 2

“Be The Best You Can Be encourages me to do more!” “I feel inspired to do the best I can”

“BTBYCB has helped me to achieve because whenever I’m stuck I think of being the best and persevere” 

“BTBYCB has made me feel more confident” 

“BTBYCB has taught me to believe in myself and never give up”

challenging things come to me. Finally when I’ve done it, I’ve made the magic happen”


Year 6

"Be The Best You Can Be has helped us to work out our plan A’s and Plan B’s, just in case plan A does not work. It helps us set realistic goals."

“BTBYCB has changed my approach to learning. I am really trying my best in my work because it is important for my future”

“BTBYCB has given me a confidence boost and I’m not as scared to try new things anymore”

 “BTBYCB has made me look at where my life is heading and what I would like to do with it. I always knew what I would have done but now I’m going for something more realistic”

 “BTBYCB has taught me about comfort zones and new possibilities. No matter how hard something is, we must persevere and find a new way. My new motto is: ‘If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you”
