Lately, the news has reported about students attempting to take others lives (or those who have done so), and students who have attempted to take their lives (and of those who did). Has it become a trend already???
I pray that my dear students would always be smart enough to see the bright side of things and dispel any thought in taking one’s life (or another for that matter).
To share the words of wisdom of our distinguished headmaster from the Recognition Exercises earlier this morning, (parents, guardians, and teachers) let us practice the 3 As: Attention – give enough attention to your children; Affection – show how much they mean to you; and Affirmation – validate the accomplishments of your children.
Simple things but let us remember that
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. – Leo Buscaglia”
