5)   Strength of the Month in December: Fairness. This month we develop our fairness skills for example by:

  • thinking that participation is more important than winning
  • playing games by the rules
  • not leaving anyone out of game, discussion etc.
  • defending someone who is weaker
  • keeping our promises
  • giving positive feedback to someone who is not your friend
  • treating people justly, not letting your personal feelings bias your decisions about others
  • giving everyone a fair chance
  • admitting our mistakes

6)   Spring Term starts on Tue 7.1.2020 with the regular timetable. Have a great holiday!
