Fingall: Don’t fear students

DO NOT LET the children think you are afraid of them.

This advice was offered by Mac Fingall, a former teacher of The Lodge, to teachers of the school during a ceremony by the Old Scholars’ Association on Monday to honour him and another old scholar, Sir Henry Fraser.

Both Fingall and Sir Henry were recognised during the last National Independence Honours – Sir Henry received the Knight of St Andrew and Fingall the Barbados Service Medal.

Fingall told the teachers at the St John secondary school they had to guide the children and if necessary, stand up to them.

“Let me tell you something: if you are afraid of the children, teaching is not for you,” he said. (LK)
