King’s School Manila’s head teacher, Janet Brock, spoke at the weekly meeting of Rotary Club Makati Dasmariñas (RCMD) at Ascot Hotel last Wednesday. The club and school are offering a scholarship to an exceptional 9-year-old Filipino student every year for five years (visit kings.org.ph, or call 478-9859).
Ms Brock nurtures a teaching philosophy that puts a premium on leadership and development anchored in the principles of honesty and integrity.
She is inspired by Dorothy Law Holte’s poem, “A Life in Your Hands.” Excerpts:
If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility, he learns to be shy.
If a child lives in tolerance, he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement, he learns confidence.
If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself.
If children live with acceptance and friendship, they learn to find love in the world.
