Joy Of Learning Diaries - Hope and Friendship

Joy of Learning Diaries @The Doon Girls' School - Chapter 7

Seeds germinate; that is hope. And a TEACHER epitomizes HOPE. That’s the beauty of a Teacher.

The teacher overcomes all ODDS, and this is what we called HOPE.

A HOPE as a value is significant for us in the learning system as children are the FUTURE's HOPE.

HOPE is Expectation and Desire for something to happen

There is a lot of TRUST in FRIENDSHIP. A real friend is someone who is always there through ‘thick and thin’. The Teacher epitomises Hope, and her compassion is the best example of Friendship for the students; the two values help us achieve better learning outcomes.

Bond of Mutual affection
Trust helps to learn, compromise, sharing and even more, and Friendship is-
Friendship teaches loyalty, appreciation and empathy.
Builds trust, teaches respect and cooperation.
Help learn to compromise and sharing.
Empathy is a key to friendship; it means -
I Understand YOU, and that is FRIENDSHIP.

HOPE AND FRIENDSHIP are significant for a TEACHER. Friendships are strengthened only with the level of MATURITY. FRIENDSHIP is the ULTIMATE of HOPE. And HOPE lies within YOU!!

The future of education will be built on immutable values alone: Appreciation, Caring, Co-operation, Courage, Freedom, Friendship, Happiness, Honesty, Hope, Humility, Love, Patience, Peace, Quality, Respect, Responsibility, Simplicity, Thoughtfulness, Tolerance, Trust, Understanding & Unity. Joy Of Learning (JOL) is based on The Little Book of Values: Educating Children to Become Thinking, Responsible and Caring Citizens by Julie Duckworth and Ian Gilbert; explores twenty-two values that can be taught through schools. This program will inspire you by using examples of where the values are already being used by children and adults in schools and share practical tools to stimulate discussion and philosophical debate. It will also help people take stock of their values and wish to lead their lives.
