What is taught within the confines of a classroom at school should never be limited to academics. In order to prepare the children for all that life offers, school environments strive to enhance experiences of trust, respect, teamwork and creativity which leads to a healthy self-concept. Once a child has the confidence to take risks and learn that mistakes are learning experiences and not failures, he/she can fully embrace opportunities with enthusiasm and inspiration. Along this journey, the child learns how to treat others the way he/she would like to be treated establishing a compassionate and empathetic philosophy. It is the job of teachers to demonstrate to the students:
- that originality should be embraced and that it is ‘okay’ to be different,
- to see that the world offers endless possibilities of exploration and so many people to learn from,
- to believe in themselves.
That is education!
