Head of School’s Comment

It is at times like these that you really do see the best of a school like ours. We appreciate that some families have made a personal decision to keep their children home, and while not present we thank them, and the families of those students attending, for their ongoing messages of support and understanding of the situation. We are very fortunate to have such a positive and resilient staff, board, parent community and most importantly, student body.
While the end of this situation may be a long time coming, it will pass. It is important to take all necessary precautions and stay abreast of the current situation, however it is important to take a break. With a few exceptions, we continue to maintain our regular routines and activities with our students, regularly pausing and focussing our attention to the present.
We all need to go out of our minds at least once a day. By going out of our minds we quickly come to our senses Alan Watts, Author, ‘The Way of Zen’
