Today I was very proud of my class and how they responded to a new trial student. Each regular child was kind, considerate and encouraging. I was so happy to tell the parents about this. Seeing the children be kind really touched my heart and made me re-realise just how lovely these children are. E’ve was particularly caring and as our trail student became slightly nervous, E’ve said “don’t worry, we will have break time soon”. This really hit home for the parents and me as E’ve, in the first weeks, also wanted to leave the room and go back to mum before break time. Now she is the one encouraging others to participate and helping to calm their anxiety. It’s a lovely thing to see someone’s progression go full circle. It even worked, in the second half our trial student performed wonderfully and she showed the class her wonderful loud voice and good English knowledge. This class never seizes to amaze me.
