Event description

Description

Join Tim Walters, Head Teacher of Vauvert School for tea and cake in the launch of his second book about Growth Mindset theory. In association with Islandmums, who is proud to help bring this important education to local families.

Growth Mindset practices have been implemented in thousands of schools worldwide following Carol Dweck's best-selling book "The Growth Mindset". Many of the Guernsey schools have taken the lessons to establish their own versions.

Under the leadership of Tim Walters, Vauvert School in Guernsey has made great strides in launching their own programme for children and teachers with Bob and Lola, Challenge-o-Meter and The Pitt becoming part of the daily practices and vocabulary. These and many other practices have led to tangible improments in children's resilience, ability to deal with stress, attitude to failure and giving a try among other positive outcomes.

Talking to parents and implementing practices in his own family, led Tim to realise the opportunity to extend the teachings to parents, who play a critical role as home-educators and role-models. Many of the Growth Mindset theories helped Tim change his own parenting practices and vocabulary used with his children.

During the Book Launch Tim will share key learnings from the book based on stories about Bob and Lola to give parents a glimpse of the practices and fun approaches of learning and implementing Growth Mindset at home.

Rachel Sykes, from the States Education Department and a key facilitator of the Growth Mindset theory with local schools, will open the talk.

Rachel is a Chartered Educational Psychologist (EP) and has worked for several Education Authorities since 2001, most recently as a Senior EP for the States of Guernsey. She also been employed as a Performance Lifestyle and Mind Coach for the Guernsey Sports Commission. She has spoken about Growth Mindset at conferences and has co-written 'The Growth Mindset Coaching Kit' with Jeremy Frith.

This is a unique opportunity to learn from a local author and purchase the books on the day - the book will be available for £10 and £8 for Islandmums members.

PRIZE-DRAW! Islandmums will also run a prize-draw to give away 10 books to Islandmums members who come on the day. Proof of membership will be necessary to enter the draw.
