Greetings from St Bede's

Mr Justin Boyle —

Over the course of the year we have been implementing a programme called PB4L – positive behaviour for learning. We have dubbed it the BLE (Bedean Learning Environment) and have used the name of our College to feature what we are trying to emphasise.

B   Be courageous

E   Everyone matters

D   Develop faith

E   Embrace opportunity

S   Strive to succeed

On Thursday, Form Tutors began looking at ‘Everyone matters’ and looked at the concept of empathy, and the importance of being kind and how we might show both of these values in everyday life.

Many examples of others showing kindness or empathy were shared but two quotations from well-known people were also unpacked and discussed…

“I think probably kindness is my number one attribute in a human being. I’ll put it before any of the things like courage or bravery or generosity or anything else…Kindness – that simple word. To be kind – it covers everything, to my mind. If you’re kind that’s it.”          Roald Dahl

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.”        Mother Teresa

Until next week

Justin Boyle
