Head of School’s Comment

zoom session

Our current Value in focus is Respect. During this term we have explored respect in relation to giving full attention, being aware of the needs of others, and offering thanks. This week we explored community at our assemblies through one of our readings on the term ‘Ubuntu’.

In the final weeks of this term, we shall address the benefits of acknowledging what someone does well; praising those that do something better than you.

“We need other human beings in order to be human. We are made for togetherness, we are made for family, for fellowship, to exist in a tender network of interdependence.” Desmond Tutu on Ubuntu – No Future Without Forgiveness
