GUIDING & COUNSELLING - 2011
DISCIPLINE AND COUNSELING COMMITTEE
The team was constituted in 2008 to foresee the general discipline in the school.
The committee works hand in hand with visiting counselors who regularly visit the school to offer counseling sessions from class 3 to 8. Though independent, it is answerable to the Head Teacher.
The main objective is to assists learners cope with the daily challenges they face in their normal school days. It is more of corrective than punitive.
It should however be understood that discipline is a collective responsibility beginning with the parents, the school and the society around the home environment.
Parents are the first disciplinarian of their / his / her child or children. They need to be firm with love as they sow and nurture the seed of discipline in their sons and daughters. Guided discipline assists the learner to develop positive values and altitudes, the cornerstone of success. Teachers on their own can do very little if parents do not co-operate. Continuous constant communication is key to instilling a strong base in disciplining child/children.
Father Peter Byrne wrote: “Children pass examinations according to knowledge; they will live their lives by values. They learn instructions from our words; by our lives we teach them values”
The environment learners interact with is congested with many positive and negative choices. It is a noble duty of parents and teachers to assist them to make right choice, a choice that will enable them to focus on their future, the continuation of today. Discipline is empowerment.
To be disciplined is to do the right thing at the night time and place. This can be impossible where self control is lacking.
For parents and teachers – we have been entrusted the young to our care.
They go through life marked by us. Their hearts, memories and minds will bear some trace of our interaction with them. Let them remember us with gentleness and Love.
