how to achieve two goals simultaneously
How to Achieve Two Goals Simultaneously
  • An interest in beautifying the school grounds will make the children hesitant to spoil or deface it!
  • Find opportunities for directing pupils to acts of helpfulness and this can be felt throughout the home!
  • Attributes needed are:

A refined taste, a love of order, and a habit of care-taking; and the spirit of fellowship and co-operation.

  • Recreational activities will interrupt the regular routine of school-work.
  • An outlet will be given for that excess energy.

“As a safeguard against evil, the preoccupation of the mind with good is worth more than unnumbered barriers of law and discipline.”
