The idea started when students in their mentor groups brainstormed words/feelings they wanted to have here at VRG – words that define our VRG ANDA.
The words generated this wordle:
From these words, they created activities for this week …
-kick-off assembly on Monday to launch #vrganda (instagram hastag)
-art competition to make a poster of these words
-fun food menu for each day
-grilling outside on Friday, music, friends and fun
-pajama day on Friday for – “fredagsmys”
Of course the work with our common values will continue with daily activities that build community, in meaningful mentor meetings, and in fun-filled student assemblies and activities. The common factor in all that we do from now on will be these 7 words – värme, respekt, gemenskap, acceptans, traditioner, engagemang/warmth, respect, togetherness, acceptance, traditions, engagement.
