How wonderful was this weekend’s snowfall in the Boland! Nevertheless signs of Spring and new growth are visible everywhere.
Character tips that work:
Today we place the focus on the importance of structure, routine focus and discipline during the pandemic.
The structure and routine created by a school day is crucial to provide leaners with a sense of security.
The repetitive routine of a school day offers a sense of normality during abnormal times. Try to stick to a familiar routine as much as possible.
Leaners, now more than ever, need teachers who use every period effectively to complete the work. Learners know instantly when teachers start lowering standards just as they are aware that this is no time for messing around.
Do not accept second rate work or laziness from learners or teachers. In spite of the pandemic, the work still needs to be done and handed in on time.
Be kind, but not soft.
