‘Thought for the Day’

Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person's physical, emotional, and mental states.Carol Welch If you want to go somewhere, it is best to find someone who has already been there.Robert Kiyosaki Sometimes it’s the smallest decisions that can change your life forever.Keri Russell Mindfulness can be summed up in two words: pay attention. Once you notice what you’re doing, you have the power to change it.Michelle Burford If we are facing the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking.Buddhist Proverb Ask your pupils to choose to do one good deed for another pupil this week. Or ask a group of older pupils to plan and put on an assembly with a short play about bullying.Michele Elliott, author of the Stop Bullying Pocketbook Use unexpected available time, such as when people are late for appointments, by creating a weekly 'transition time file'. Put into it tasks you can do in short bursts for that week. Carry it with you so you never lose a moment!Will Thomas, author of the Managing Workload Pocketbook Poor work-life balance can have short-and-long term effects on our health, relationships and effectiveness. Here’s a simple prescription for thinking about making positive changes: R.E.S.T
R = refuel – eat and drink healthily for maximum performance, E = exercise, S = stop - Take a few minutes of time in total peace and quiet each day and T = time to reflect, to review, energise and plan.

When teams all buy into the same dream amazing things can happen.Brin Best & Will Thomas, authors of the Head of Department's Pocketbook Scrap 'G&T cohorts'. They make no educational sense and are based on social policy diktat, not social science evidence.

Handle it with care.Dr Barry Hymer, author of the Gifted & Talented Pocketbook Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.John Dewey A liberal education is at the heart of a civil society, and at the heart of a liberal education is the act of teaching.A. Bartlett Giamatti Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.William Butler Yeats Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another.Gilbert K. Chesterton It's important to maintain emotional balance in busy and fast-moving classrooms.Peter Hook & Andy Vass, authors of the Behaviour Management Pocketbook Good manners cost nothing and are the social 'glue' that, day-to-day, forms cohesive groups.Peter Hook & Andy Vass, authors of the Behaviour Management Pocketbook There is a basic law of human relationships that says, ' If you want to receive something it is better to give it first.' This principle applies at all levels in your interactions with children. If you show respect towards your children you are much more likely to be treated with respect yourself.Peter Hook & Andy Vass, authors of the Behaviour Management Pocketbook
