Circle Time

Circle Time takes place in each class on a weekly basis. Circle Time can be conducted as a whole class meeting or in small group sessions. As a structured forum set within a trusting environment, Circle Time provides opportunities for students:

• to speak, listen, share thoughts, explore ideas and interact;
• to develop confidence;
• to build self-esteem;
• to feel valued and able to learn about themselves.

Rules for Circle Time

The following protocols are observed by all students when taking part in Circle Time activities:

1. We listen when someone else is speaking and everyone gets a turn.
2. We may pass.
3. We don’t remind anyone else what they should be doing.
4. No Put Downs: Personal Positives Only.
5. What is said in the circle stays in the circle.
