It is very nice to be back at John Colet after a three-week break. It is striking to see how much actually takes place in a short period. At the moment the children are concentrating on the School value of Courage, in particular the aspect of resilience. The reading in Assembly this week made reference to the choices we make and where they lead. In a number of conversations with the children this week we have spoken about how the wise choice is often the harder choice because it involves going against habit and sometimes strong feelings. However it is the wise choice which ends up being the best choice in the long run. To quote the poet Robert Frost:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Deputy Head of School
