Can you still remember when you first enrolled in a primary school? Can you still remember the first classmates you mingled with, the first school you studied together, the first teachers who guided you all the way and who cannot forget the canteens, dining halls and the playgrounds where you first experienced the fun and adventure? Every corner of the school has its own set of people who are assigned in their respective positions. There is the head teacher, the teachers in every subject and the Lunchtime Supervisor.
I know you have already met your Lunchtime Supervisor, but you have no idea what he/she is called.
When classes end, that is the time a Lunchtime Supervisor works. Usually a Lunchtime Supervisor supervises pupils during lunch time. After class, the pupils have their lunch at the dining hall, and then the Lunchtime Supervisor will be the one responsible for these pupils during these times. They teach and make sure that the pupils are in good order and well disciplined while eating their lunch. Every day they monitor the pupils’ behavior. In the dining hall, playground areas, or in any school premises, they ensure safety, and during the mid-day break period, they also take charge.
You don’t need to accomplish a bachelor’s degree in order to be qualified as a Lunchtime Supervisor. But you must have the interest and experience in dealing and working with young people. It also requires a person who has the awareness about health and safety issues, and has the commitment to his/her job in promoting a safe place for their pupils.
This profession is really multitasking. They serve as the second parent of their pupils. Their main concern is to make sure that their pupils are properly trained from the beginning until the end in order for these pupils to be disciplined.
A Lunchtime Supervisor deals and mingles with a lot of pupils every day. Let every circumstances not be a barricade in their profession. Let this serve as their inspiration in working hard not just for themselves but for the pupils.
