Disciplining children! This has proven a real challenge in my time here. Most of these children, if not all, have been and still are disciplined with a cane at home, so they are used to it, and if that is not applied, then nothing is taken seriously by them. Now, Kookaburra being a non-corporal punishment school, some of the children take advantage and break the school rules knowing that they will not get beaten but given other forms of punishment. It can be a challenge to help them understand that beating isn’t the ideal form of correcting a mistake but with love and other non-physical punishments it does work best. Over the 7 years I have taught here, I have noticed a huge positive change in their attitude towards our discipline policy, now I can say that a majority abide by the rules and do not require to be hit to stay right by the rules.
