We hear so much in the news about issues … whatever they are in life – and who should be blamed, or who is responsible .
In school we work hard to consider finding solutions and resolution with our children. Every day for children who are developing presents them with challenges, whatever they may be- in learning, in soliakisatio , in sharing. This is all part of learning to be part of our amazing world. Sometimes things go wrong- and we accept this, deal with it and consider how to approach things differently . This is part of our positive and optimistic ethos, where forgiveness and collaboration are valued. When things go right- or well, we celebrate these. It is important that the celebrations outweigh the negatives in order to promote positive attitudes to life. We all know the negatives seem to weigh more!
How often do we as adults focus I. What went well?
What was fantastic last week was the multitude of positive messages we received from families to thank us for the great work we do every day with our children. I have a number of notes and letters that appeared like sprinkles of magic to thank staff for their commitment and professionalism . Sometimes we can get bogged down with issues- which need dealing with , but can take prominence at times, and our fantastic community reminded us all what great work is happening every day. Our staff are consummate professionals who commit so much of their own time to plan for our children . They need praise where it is due to. If our children are to thrive, then the adults who work with them need to feel their self worth too.
Our children are the greatest ambassadors for the work we all do to nurture them. They are an absolute credit to everyone. Yet again visitors to school and sports coaches praise them for their behaviour and attitudes.
What an amazing school to be part of!
