At Kembu we strive to maintain an environment where teachers and guardians of children are in a position to encourage kids to explore and take risks. This creates a show confidence in these children’s capabilities, thus enabling them to internalize the faith nurtured in them to develop an enduring sense of competence for themselves.
Self-reliance in children means being confident in their own abilities and the ability to do things for themselves. Going away from home on a school outing is a very special time for students as it is an opportunity for them to step out from the safety net their parents provide for them and experiment with their own independence.
To encourage this on the understanding that this freedom comes with responsibility both to themselves and those around them teaches them that they have control over their lives. To provide them with guidance and then the freedom to make their own choices and decisions (and mistakes) shows them what their responsibilities are, that they must accept those responsibilities, and then they must be held them accountable for actions.
All this combines to create children that can be trusted to be safe, sensible, secure and self-reliant. Traits that mean they can be leadership and trust and adventure
