Risk-taking at Central Kids Hazelmere in Te Awamutu builds confidence and it grows concentration. We have to take risks in life to learn anything new.
Children learn to be risk assessors by assessing risks and then taking them. As teachers, we understand this and prepare an environment where tamariki can assess their own abilities, use the resources to create challenges and feel the excitement and thrill achieving something new or unnerving.
A quote from T. S. Elliot “Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go”.
