    B.O.B It Up

    B.O.B It Up

    In this episode, our 12 year old experts introduce you to B.O.B - which stands for 'Be Of Benefit'. It's a mindset anyone can practice using.

    The students describe why adopting a B.O.B mentality boosts our wellbeing and they take it out into the playground to discover how other kids B.O.B it up. Because as the Wise Owl says, 'If you think you are too small to make a difference, you have never shared a bed with a mosquito!'

    You'll hear a story about a girl in Pakistan and another about a lion and a mouse. Prepare yourself for catching the B.O.B bug, which turns out is HIGHLY contagious.
