We are fortunate to have at John Colet School, students who most of the time exhibit behaviour of strong character, respectfulness and resilience. It is an aspect that is often commented on by visitors to our school and should be something that we are very proud of. This is achieved by having a collective understanding of our responsibilities and how we relate to each other with support and kindness.
It is important to remember that this is a central aspect of what primary education is all about. Our students are continually learning how to be and are all at different stages of self-awareness, maturity and confidence. Disagreements will occur, friendships will rise and wane and sometimes frustrations will boil over. Our practice of stillness and mindfulness is very helpful during these situations, as is the collective understanding within the school of what is right and fair.
