"Your profile shows how you look on the side of your face.The learner profile shows what the learners or students should look like when they are learning. For our “Who We Are” unit we have chosen the learner profile called caring. Each Tuesday, classes will be showing us something about caring. So, what is caring. It is all about treating people nicely and doing something that helps them. The opposite of caring is apathy or not caring. For example, if a person sits on a table then that person is showing that he or she doesn’t care if the table breaks and we have to buy a new one. You should ask the person if he or she cares about our school and seek help from your teacher, principal or parent. Remember it is all about caring. C is for Caring. A is for Attitudes. R is for Reaching. E is for Everybody. Please care about people."
