A week in the sign of love, at least according to the calendar ..
Valentine's Day has passed and I wrote about rose ceremonies on Instagram. Something many of us experienced in school as small, or in their teens.I believe and hope that school knows better today but at the same time it struck me: I do not know at all how schools pay attention or celebrate Valentine's Day nowadays. The only thing my children have done is to play, but maybe there are new fine traditions that have replaced the rose ceremony? It would be interesting to know! Or other traditions that in school took new (more inclusive) form? What are your children celebrating school? Feel free to comment!
Of course, love, friendship and community will not come from a date in the calendar, but as long as the date contributes to inclusion and not exclusion, we are at least on the right track.
Another question: In addition to traditions - what else does your children's schools do for the children to feel included and seen (except what they must do by law)? There are certainly lots of nice creative examples! Comment on everything you come up with!
