Head of School’s Comment

John Colet School crest
This week our Primary students who had tried out, and been selected to be in a PISA team, had their first competitive matches. By all accounts their performances were strong and they supported each other as a team, as well as showing respect for the opposition. We have seen the same positive approach from students involved in our regular sports lessons as also during our current swimming program.
As we look forward to our Primary Swimming Carnival in just a few weeks, it is the combination of individual personal bests, healthy competition between the Houses, as well as support and respect for fellow students across the board, that makes this event so special.
We are looking at the value of Service, and in particular the concept of our ‘duty’. The points above are great examples of having a duty to perform at our best, or of the duties within a team or the wider school. We also had some fabulous examples in Infants Assembly this morning, with one bright spark in Lower 1st letting us know that it was her duty to bring happiness into our school each day!
