Mr Mali's School

This short video highlights the relationship that is needed between student and teacher to enable a positive outcome for all. The scene is one that many teachers know. The message that Mr Mali creates here is excellent as it tells us that our job as teachers is to encourage students beyond what they ever believed they could do. He uses the same belief as our principal - the head and the heart. Strong minds and gentle hearts is what we're on about with PBS at HFS. Over the last 2 years we have created a community grounded in three very explicit yet simple rules:

- I respect myself
- I respect others
- I respect the environment.

Perhaps it is rules similar to these that Mr Mali and his students operate out of?
