Here at Burnside, we are firm believers in having a 'Growth Mindset'. Having a growth mindset, describes the belief that you are in control of your own ability to learn and improve new or old abilities. With this mindset, we hope to teach our children that they can achieve what they desire to achieve as they grow up through hard work, persistence, and determination. Additionally, we hope to instil the idea that failure is just an opportunity to better yourself, so that failure does not dishearten our students, instead it builds confidence within them to keep improving their academic ability and to continue being passionate about their own personal interests, being driven to overcome obstacles in many aspects of life.
