FORUM THIS WEEK TOPIC: GEEKISM DATE:
Being scared of being smart Not wanting to do something because of what others might think. Not being yourself Thinking ‘It’s not cool to be clever’ Don’t be afraid to put your self out there! Don’t be afraid to show you’re smart. Don’t let other people judge you because you’re clever. Be proud of your achievements Just go for it!
If you are happy to wear a top with ‘geek’ on it, why are you so afraid to act like it? Jessie J’s song ‘who you’ are is inspirational, and is a good way to put across the idea of not changing no matter what. om/watch?v=j2WWrup MBAE
Victoria Beckham, a role model? Even though she is a footballers wife she has been able to succeed in the spice girls and have her own clothing range. She is brave enough to put herself in the public eye in everything she does. Every one has their ups and downs and Victoria especially learned from her mistakes. Karen Brady, a role model? She already owns multiple businesses and is the first woman to have a share in a football club.
The most important and most necessary thing, EVER! It‘s not true that we only use 10% of our brain. We use it all and if you don’t believe me cut a bit out and see what happens. Your brain has no pain receptors which is why if I managed to remove the top of your skull without you noticing I could poke around all day without you feeling a thing. The brain is approximately 75% water, but you should never drink it. Your brain only weighs about 3lbs yet it uses between 20% and 25% of your energy supplies each day.
When asked about bullying, those students who replied that ‘Yes’ they had been a victim of bullying stated the reasons. Our second biggest reason (after appearance) was: KS3 About school work I find hard to do or being clever 20.7% KS4 About school work I find hard to do or being clever 32.4%
