Head of School’s Comment

It has been wonderful exploring the Value of Courage this term at John Colet School. We began by defining courage and what it really means to be showing it and why it is important to practise its use at the right time and in the right place. We also talked about the importance of honesty, abstaining from gossip and standing up for those in need, as well looking at the power of forgiveness for others and ourselves.

We take this a step further next term as we delve into one of our other core values, Service. Words need to be translated into action, preferably spontaneous, thoughtful, independent action by our students. We will remind the children at our assembly on Friday to look for opportunities during the holidays. If you do witness any such examples over the break please do let us know as it’s always good to be able to share with the whole school when we return.

Have a wonderful holiday with your family and we look forward to welcoming you back on the 11th of October.
