Head of School’s Comment

Thank you to our entire school community for a wonderful Open Day. It was a magnificent example of the practical application of our school values through the actions of all involved.

Our exploration of the practice of Truthfulness continues this term. We are now looking specifically at how we can be personally active in determining what is fact from fiction and ensuring that what we chose to share with others is beneficial for all. When we pass information on we are effectively saying it is true and therefore we need to pause and determine if this is in fact the case. Also, when sharing information we need to be aware of the impact of what we are saying, not just on the person we are sharing with, but also on the wider community.

Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth Marcus Aurelius
