130TEACHING VALUES SECTION 5 IMPLEMENTATION TOOLS LESSONS WILL BE REMEMBERED LONG AFTER THE SCORES ARE FORGOTTEN. Our " Spirit of Olympism" school/ organisation encourages your participation in your son/ daughter/ young person's curricular, extra- curricular and sports activities. As a parent/ guardian your participation contributes to their ongoing development and enthusiasm. Our school/ organisation has developed a Spirit of Olympism code. We expect all of our participants to behave according to the principles of the code when they are participating in the activities or events sponsored by our school or organisation. We also want our participants to have fun, and we expect our parents/ guardians to encourage this fun in a positive way. When you are a spectator at events, the young people you watch do hear and see you. They care about what you say. They look to you for acceptance and praise. Please understand that you are watching young participants learn and have fun doing activities they love. Be positive in your participation during a game or event. Do not yell negative comments at other participants or parents, teachers, coaches or officials. Our Spirit of Olympism school/ organisation hopes all parents/ guardians will be positive role models for their sons and/ or daughters. Accept the fact that mistakes will be made by teachers, coaches, activity leaders, referees and officials. Be tolerant of mistakes. If you cannot accept what you see, hear or experience, make your concerns known to the administration privately after the event. We appreciate your support.
