The little things

Last year, on the last day of school, a year 12 student told me a story of an incident that had remained with him all his schooling. He said he didn’t really like school, and it all came from one little thing – a day in reception when the teacher humiliated him and made him stand in front of the class when all he wanted to do was go to the toilet (he asked to “do a wee” and the teacher said that wasn’t appropriate – you had to ask to “go to the toilet”).

Don’t forget that we are entrusted with these students and the smallest things can have a difference – for good or bad.
