To all those parents who took the time out of your busy lives to send in a little flower, a card, a note, a cake or homemade biscuit or simply popped your head in to the classroom to say ‘thank you’ to our teachers – well done and a sincere THANK YOU, Mums and Dads!
Your children watch and hear everything you do and when they see you showing gratefulness and thoughtfulness it is powerful modelling for their own lives…
To teach a child is such a special privilege and it takes much daily skill, knowledge, patience, kindness, creativity and much more to bring out the very best in them, so they grow and flourish, as both a learner and as a person!
When teaching is done in partnership, that is, a dedicated and caring teacher + a dedicated and loving parent, it makes for a very powerful foundation upon which a child feels happy to have-a go, safe to take risks and make mistakes, supported TO LEARN!
Thanks again… encouragement is a powerful motivator!
