Acting and thinking as equals
In The Swallow, we like everybody to be equal, whether pupil, teacher, student-teacher, ancillary staff, coordinator or parent. We are not showing that one is better or higher than another. We are eating out of one bowl if possible, joining all the work together. And nobody is above the law. Everybody with positive ideas is welcome to make a contribution at The Swallow. We like all at The Swallow to belong to our family.
We are very much interested in how other schools are working at the same ideas. We see in Belgium for example lot of Freinet schools working on belonging and team spirit, during school gatherings, group work and more.
