YS's wish to become a class monitor finally came true. When he told me softly about the good news while we were walking together towards my car, I could sense his happiness. It was a big deal to him because he had to "behave" like a leader in front of the class and be the teacher's little helper.
So I had a little prep talk with him about being a class monitor:
#Be a role model - Never do the things that a monitor should not do. Cannot skip school, no lying, no stealing, no fighting and no swearing. Try to portray a neat & tidy image at all times.
#Be helpful - Be the teacher's best helper & always willing to help those in needs.
#Be Fair - You have to be fair when penalising anyone for misbehaving in the class.
#Be serious - When its time to be serious, you got to be SERIOUS. You can't be a clown in the class!
#Be lenient at times - Sometimes we need to "pang chance" to 1st offenders so & encourage them not to repeat again.
