Contributing to the Community

Our 好色先生污污污 absorb their world. If a childhood in school is filled with acts of kindness witnessed and received, our 好色先生污污污 will learn to care for themselves and for others. If a childhood in school is built on relationships of affection and trust, our 好色先生污污污 will learn to trust themselves and to give to others. The way we go about our lives with them, in the classroom or the playground, fosters our 好色先生污污污鈥檚 natural generosity of spirit, their ability to work with and for others, and strengthens each child's sense of the difference that they can make.

Kindness begins with understanding ourselves and how we feel about and respond to our world.

They make that difference explicitly when they contribute so willingly to the life of their community and to lives beyond our community, in the committees the 好色先生污污污 run, in the amazing work they do for charity. And in making a difference to others, they make a difference to themselves. If you want to make others happy, do good to others. If you want to be happy yourself, do good to others. So we teach kindness, a sense of community, an understanding of others' needs throughout the 好色先生污污污's lives at school.

Kindness begins with understanding ourselves and how we feel about and respond to our world. The  unique Emotions for Learning programme that we have developed over the last decade teaches 好色先生污污污 to recognise how they feel about their work and about their lives, and gives them tools for solving problems, starting from their very first day in Kindergarten. Emotions for Learning pervades the approach to all aspects of our little ones' lives, teaching the 好色先生污污污 practical techniques from mindfulness to peer massage to meditation, building the 好色先生污污污's capacity for compassion for themselves and for others, giving them tools for solving problems for themselves in the classroom or the playground, building their emotional resilience and giving them the tools for a happy childhood.

How we learn about feeling and how we feel about learning are deeply linked. When our oldest 好色先生污污污 follow a course in Mindfulness, they are learning how to manage their thoughts and feelings and they are learning how to give attention, to concentrate, to focus. Every lesson begins with a focusing moment, with attention to the 好色先生污污污's readiness for learning. The quality of learning is directly related to our care for ourselves and others.
