Year 7 to 10 (Middle School)


Self-acceptance is the awareness of and satisfaction with one's strengths and weaknesses, the non-judgemental realistic assessment of one's talents, capabilities, and general worth. When we're self-accepting, we're able to embrace all facets of ourselves—not just the positive, more "esteem-able" parts including body acceptance and understanding our own ‘unique-worth”. Building self-acceptance is critical to wellbeing and mental health. Benefits of self-acceptance include increased positive emotions, sense of freedom, self-worth, autonomy, and self-esteem. Strong self-acceptance also decreases fear of failure, and self-critique, depressive symptoms and an overwhelming need for approval. The activities sourced and designed provide opportunities for children and students to explore and practice self‐acceptance. Learning to be more attentive to the thoughts and beliefs (especially judgments) will support positive relationships.

“Who I Am” Collage

Self-acceptance requires self-discovery and a willingness to look objectively at ourselves celebrating strengths that outweigh weaknesses. Reflecting on who we are and all the unique facets that make us individuals and representing that in a collage assists student to build their self-image and esteem.
