A + I = M talk from Mr Patterson

Today we had an inspiring talk from Mr Patterson. Mr Patterson came to talk to the year 7 & 8's about A + I = M and that means aspiration, inspiration and motivation. First he talked about what you want to do and dream of. Then he talked about who inspires you. But the thing I liked about the talk and what I am going to take with me is to be a giver and have the ability to notice an act. He talked to us about this 11 year old boy called Willy who was a giver and gave his lunch and money to this homeless man for two weeks. Now the homeless man has a job and home and that I know now that I would like to be a giver.

What it means to be a good role model

Do you have what it takes to be a good role model? Well here are some different ways how you can be a good role model.

One way to be a good role model is doing a lot of jobs that would make people happy like helping them with their work and giving them stuff that they need and if people see what you are doing they would want to copy you.

Another thing a good role model would do is share their things, like if your friend doesn't have any lunch you would share your lunch with them and that’s what a good role model would do share.

Lastly a good role model would treat people how you would want to be treated. Like if someone asks if they can play the game you are playing you would want to say yes. If you say no and that person you said no to starts a game and you ask to play they would say no because you said no to them and didn't treat them like a friend.

So there we have it different ways how to be a good role model.
