Learner Profile Trait for May ~ Risk Taker
Barry Goldwater is an International Baccalaureate (IB) school. As such we aspire to fulfill the traits embodied in the Learner Profile. Each month we will highlight and celebrate one of these traits.
The Learner Profile trait for May is Risk Taker. We approach uncertainty with forethought and determination; we work independently and cooperatively to explore new ideas and innovative strategies. We are resourceful and resilient in the face of challenges and change.
The Learner Profile Quote of the Day is:
Living with fear stops us taking risks, and if you don't go out on the branch, you're never going to get the best fruit. Sarah Parish
