We are very proud of that and how they are doing. They are growing in confidence, English and academic ability, sporting and artistic prowess. The reports back from those that visit the school and have dealings with them on an individual or group basis speak so often of their delightful characters, of how polite, cheerful warm they are, often making very favourable remarks when comparing students they meet from other schools. I cannot comment on that but I do see the wonderful character development of our students.
This aspect of their development cannot be overstated. It is a hallmark of the values we set at the heart of our education that the students show great respect for themselves, for each other, for their teachers, their environment both in and out of school, for their families and for wider society and its traditions. This is such an important part of their growing up and into independence as increasingly mature young people with a strong foundation of values, ready to take their place in a rapidly changing world. We encourage that independence but never at the expense of family or societal values, whatever their ultimate destination in life.
Our seminar series continues on Sunday 29th May at 9am with talks and insights into this aspect of independence and what it means for young people, as they learn to chart the waters of personal growth within wider family and society cultural norms. It promises to be a fascinating and insightful discussion and we hope that you will join us to learn, challenge and raise awareness. We look forward to seeing you there.
I wish you a very happy weekend.
