School Ethos

 

The ethos of the school is best expressed in the following poem:

 

            If a child lives with criticism

                        She learns to condemn

 

            If a child lives with hostility

                        He learns to fight

 

            If a child lives with ridicule

                        She learns to be shy

 

            If a child lives with shame

                        He learns to feel guilt

 

            If a child lives with tolerance

                        She learns to be patient

 

            If a child lives with encouragement

                        He learns confidence

 

            If a child lives with praise

                        She learns to appreciate

 

            If a child lives with fairness

                        He learns justice

 

            If a child lives with security

                        She learns to have faith

 

            If a child lives with approval

                        He learns to like himself

 

            If a child lives with warmth and discipline

                        She learns to like others

 

            If a child lives with acceptance and friendship

                        He or she learns to find love in the world
