Confidence, Persistence, Organisation, Resilience & Getting Along
are five qualities which we attempt to nurture and develop at the Yaapeet Primary School.

In order for anyone to be able to work independently on work and stay on task for an activity and also in order for us to learn new skills and knowledge, it is vital that we are able to;

Be confident, in beginning new work or continuing with work, especially when it’s difficult.
Be persistent, complete the task even when the work is frustrating or boring.
Be organised, in our management of work.
Get along and work cooperatively with others, by managing conflict and anger and following important rules.
Be resilient, nurture the ability to keep perspective, stay calm and bounce back.

These qualities are important to ensure success not only in school but in life.
