COMMUNIQUE FROM DIRECTORS DESK
The act of giving and receiving empowering messages has just as much a place in our schools as anywhere else. We sometimes dont think of this as being the place where such a thing can survive. The truth is it happens a lot more than we think.
Our words matter greatly, especially when we are teachers. There is peer support of every kind in the school environment. Students hearing and sharing empowering messages in their formative school years are more than just an act of personal betterment. Its a betterment of others as well.
With just a few words we can enhance a students classroom experience, or utterly destroy
it. Thats how powerful words are, and how fragile young people can be. Below are the 10 empowering messages which our school gives to the students:
Thats understandable, of course. They havent lived long enough and witnessed enough of others suffering to learn that its often universally shared experience. Nevertheless, this is the time for them to become aware that empathy and understanding are within arms reach. Again, it comes down to the student feeling safe enough to open up. As teachers, thats our mission.
