It was wonderful to notice how the children returned to John Colet School on Tuesday: they seemed refreshed and full of enthusiasm for the coming term. Teachers report that they settled down to work immediately, and this was certainly obvious at our opening Assembly.
The children had been given Holiday Homework by the Headmaster to honour their parents. Some beautiful examples were given by the children, and even the Headmaster told how he had honoured his parents.
Truthfulness is our term’s practice: in the past we have found this to be extremely fruitful, and the children are gaining an understanding that truthfulness is underpinned by courage and inner strength.
