Head of School’s Comment

Within our Value of Service that we are exploring this Term is the question of whether we are giving our full attention. Listening with our full attention and giving all our focus to what is at hand is a core aspect of Service and also of Respect. We can practice this with our interactions with other people and also in the way we approach any task. Holding oneself within the present is not easy and can be fleeting as our minds are quick to be distracted and busy. Like a muscle working on a new activity or task it takes practice over time for this to feel more natural. This is particularly apt for our primary students as they take to the stage for our Shakespeare Festival next week. The performances are a wonderful example of what can be achieved over the many years of actively learning to attend.
I am very pleased to announce that the amount raised for our solar panels has now risen above the $30,000 mark on our way towards the ultimate goal of $42,000! While we are not encouraging student donations, it was wonderful to see one of our Upper First students bring in sixty cents of her pocket money this week! The students are very keen to make this project a reality.
