This week we have been practicing excellence. Excellence applies to anything that we may undertake in any area whether it be academic, sporting, artistic or individual endeavour. Excellence allows each child to set his or her own standard, and to strive towards achieving his or her personal best. This means that excellence includes everybody, without the need to compete.
It has been a great pleasure to have children approach me to tell me with pride about something that they have achieved whether it be receiving a pen licence, getting ticks on a behaviour award chart or getting a place in their chosen high school. What stands out is that excellence applies to anything no matter how great or small. It is wonderful to see this underlying attitude manifesting in the actions of the children.
