From our Deputy Head

The term has started on a strong and steady note. This term we will be considering the value of Truthfulness and the many facets that this quality entails. In the famous words of the Bard:

This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.

At the beginning of the week the teachers spent a day studying the value of attention in education. We looked at the words of William James a 19th century American philosopher and Simone Weil a 20th century French philosopher who said,

The development of the faculty of attention forms the real object and almost the sole interest of studies .

This lies at the heart of our teaching practice. We all look forward to an industrious and stimulating second term.
