Patience - Chinese Bamboo - Story
« on: February 05, 2013, 07:57:05 AM »
VALUES:  Patience; Gratitude; Education,Vision.

STORY:    The Chinese bamboo tree is a very interesting plant. After being planted, it is watered and fertilized for a year, but nothing happens. No growth is seen. During the second year, it is watered and fertilized again, with no result. This happens in the third and fourth years too – nothing, absolutely nothing!

However, some time during the fifth year, something unbelievable happens. The plant explodes out of the earth and grows 30m high in just six weeks. The important question is: Did this growth happen in five years or just six weeks? The answer is that it takes five years for the plant to grow - four years of careful preparation and hard work, and a fifth year when all the patient caring pays off and leads to great success.


TEACHING POINT:

School is a bit like this. It takes educators twelve years, from year 1 to year 13, to patiently prepare learners for the next step. Be grateful to your teachers and your school for all the time and effort that they are putting into you during your school years.
