Mindjoy Values

😊 Joyful Curious
Learning should be a joyful process. We also want to encourage children to ask questions and share their wonderings. We know that joyful learning environments feeds curiosity which drives a love for learning. Our community agreements to ensure our learning space stays one that cultivates joy.
❤️ Sawubona
Sawubona is the Zulu word for hello. It is a greeting with powerful intention behind the word
because Sawubona literally means “I see you and by seeing you I bring you into being.” Everyone at Mindjoy strives cultivate respect for the self, respect for others and respect for the projects we work on. What this means is showing up as a team player and treating others the way you wish to treated.
🧠 Cultivate learning mindset
At Mindjoy everyone is constantly learning- we think that having growth mindset is a super power. What this means is we believe in making in mistakes and we aren’t afraid to fail. We support each other when we’re stuck and we encourage our peers to persevere through challenge. We ask for support and we learn from each other. We don't let past failures or successes stop us from taking future bold action and achieving our goals.
💥 Hard fun
Struggle is not a bad thing. In fact if things are too easy we don’t actually learn. We like to create challenge based settings and ensure kids remain in the sweet spot where things are not too easy, not hard but just right (also known as the Zone of Proximal Development). We encourage students to work independently through challenge, creating the opportunity to develop the confidence in their own capacity to solve problems.
🎙 Student voice
We encourage students to think for themselves and create opportunity for discussion and for kids to share their thoughts and opinions. We all see things a different way and therefore encourage inquiry, discussion and discourse to develop student voice and wonder.
