Dear Students (and Learning Partners)
Since the older students will be busy preparing for and writing exams in the next couple of weeks, my posts during this time will be exclusively for my younger students.
You may be small, but you are special and very important folk. Do you know why? It is because nobody can grow big without first being small!
The best things in life come in small portions – the tiny flower bud, a shy smile, the dewdrop shining on the leaf, a little toffee inside your cheek, and a little motherly kiss when you need it – right?
When I was small like you, I saw a film called The Sound of Music. In it, Julie Andrews sings a song about her Favourite Things (all small in size), that I’d like to share with you. You will see that even big sisters and brothers are little children at heart – and so are grown-ups. I hope you enjoy this video:
Here are some of my own favourite things on DPST campus – I love watching our children’s birthdays flower and grow and add to the beauty of the campus:
I was specially moved by the Pre Nursery students (my next-door neighbours). On Grandparents’ Day, it rained very hard, and only one brave, wonderful Grandpa turned up. So he was shared by all the children, as you will see if you click on this video.
The Pre-Nursery babies and their teacher had lovingly selected some special gifts for their grandparents, who did not come – how disappointing!
Here are my littlest students, patiently watering their gifts, waiting for the day when grandpa and grandma will come to collect their living gifts from their loving grandchildren.
I have shared my favourite things of all with you in this post.
I am eager to know what your favourite things are – will you tell me in Comments?
