Head of school’s Comment

Last week our Head Boy and Girl, together with our House Captains, spoke to our 5th Class students about their roles this year as nominations were taken for 2019. All six spoke from the heart and it was wonderful for our soon-to-be elders of the school to hear of the service they have given and how they had grown over the year. They provided a wonderful model to our younger students of leadership, yet also of the practical nature of living our Values.
The fine examples provided by our 6th Class were continued on Monday as our 5th Class students gave speeches to the Primary for next year’s leadership positions. There was very little to separate the children and it was inspiring to see such a depth of maturity and passion with so many seeking to give their time in these roles. It would be difficult to find better examples for our students of how the value of Service could be articulated in such a positive and relevant way.
