Always praise and reinforce positive behaviour and attitude. However, the converse also applies – you must apply sanctions against poor/unacceptable behaviour and negative attitude. Parents are often quick with the first and are reluctant with the second to the ultimate detriment of the child.
CLEANERS’ CHRISTMAS HAMPERS
It is a tradition at our school that parents contribute towards a Christmas hamper for our cleaning staff as a way of conveying to them our sincere thanks for the wonderful work they do during the course of the year. It will be greatly appreciated if each learner could bring to school one or more non-perishable item as a contribution.
