My expectations of students can be summarised as follows.
Talk people up (kindness & thoughtfulness is never out of style). Never speak down to someone. Show undistracted focus when someone is speaking to you. Promptly give your full attention when it is called for.
You are responsible for your actions (or lack thereof). Don’t try to pass the blame.
You need your laptop fully charged, diary, stationery, earphones & notebook every lesson. Be on time.
It’s ok to make mistakes (it’s how we learn)! It’s not ok to not try.
Not everyone is so fortunate to benefit from a world class education. Don’t waste it or take it for granted, get everything you can out of this opportunity!
This is a safe place to be a little nerdy. Everyone thinks programmers are nerds anyway, why disappoint? Think different!
