News from Deputy Head of Secondary, Louis Bezodis

Responsibility

At the Secondary School Assembly on Tuesday we looked at students taking responsibility for themselves and not being “zombie students” by looking to blame other people or blaming inanimate objects for what is not right about things they can actually take control of. 

As parents and teachers, we know the final goal is to produce young people who, when they leave school at the age of eighteen, are capable and responsible and able to be in control of their own lives. We know that as our children get older, they need to gradually take on more responsibility. The tricky part is getting the amount right. Too much responsibility and we fear that our children will fall under the burden; too little responsibility and our children will passively accept that it is ‘not their job’ and they will remain dependent for as long as we ‘do it for them’.

I am pleased to be able to say that within the context of the school, there are plenty of good examples of students taking on responsibility, such as the students on the Y9 bonding trip who took responsibility for helping other students whose kayaking skills were less than their own. By taking responsibility both inside and outside the classroom and at school and at home, we know that our children are developing  the values, attitudes and attributes that they will need to be successful and fulfilled in later life.
