Dear HIS Families
Welcome to the October break. This week, I wanted to introduce the Learner Profile attribute, ‘caring’ and also reinforce the idea that the Learner Profile is not just about students. In an IB school, adults and children are all considered to be learners and this has important implications for adult behaviour in the school community. We are the role models that students look to to see how the world should work. For example, we want our children to grow up with empathy, compassion and respect towards the needs and feelings of others. We also want them to act to make a positive difference in the lives of others, as we see in the description below.
|They show empathy, compassion and respect towards the needs and feelings of others. They have a personal commitment to service, and act to make a positive difference to the lives of others and to the environment.||私たちは、思いやりと共感、そして尊重の精神を示します。人 の役に立ち、他の人々の生活や私たちを取り巻く世界を良くす るために行動します。|

Afterwards, the students will be free to visit other areas.
