“Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.”
― Anne Frank
As the children in Year 6 begin their final year in Primary we look at how they have changed in the time they have been here. They began needing to be taught how to read and write which has seem them develop into the authors of the future and children who will happily be caught reading now. They developed a thirst for scientific enquiry looking at the world around them and looking for answers to their questions. They have gone from counting to ten to solving more complex problems in what has been quite a journey.
That journey is not over yet.The Year 6 we see joining us are entering one of the most important phases of their school career where they are individuals mapping out what they want to do and how they want to do it. Being independent in thought and action and having an opinion are strong attributes which we encourage. As they look at the world around them and experience new things we see them developing into the mathematicians, the scientists and authors of the future and we still nurture that. We hope that through their studies with us they find a voice for their opinions and become the confident INDIVIDUALS who are the future. It will be difficult to find that one boy or girl to fulfil the mantle of Head Boy or Girl this year with so many children who already show good leadership qualities and set a good example to the younger children in the school.
“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
