Trip to Tsi Ming temple (Y 6)

What an interesting trip! We saw so many different items which we would not normally see in everyday life. The speaker shared with us their way of life and their beliefs.

We were able to relate it directly to our growth mindset principles where to succeed in life, we need to support our intelligence with practice and have an "I can" attitude. 

Another idea that we found was similar among all humans is that we all have consciousness, we have a choice of doing good, treating everyone with respect, care and love and not to judge people based on their looks, clothes or their language. 

Our trip today made us realise that New Zealand is very multicultural. There are so many people from all over the world who look different, eat different food, wear different clothes, speak a multitude of languages. But underneath that is the understanding that we are all humans and we value the same things - kindness, compassion and well being of others. That is what makes us human. We are proud to be Kiwis.
