End of Year Assembly
Our End of Year Assembly this week gave us the opportunity to share in some important moments. We watched a snippet from an address by Admiral William McRaven who was a Navy SEAL for 37 years. I have shown this before to our boys but feel it important, as he speaks about a number of ‘life lessons’, that can influence students to accomplish, and ‘change the world’. He believes that every child should make their bed in the morning, as it ensures that each day stars with “…a task accomplished.” He also speaks of the need to “respect everyone”, that “life is not fair and you will fail often”, that we need to “step up when the times are toughest”, and we must “never, ever give up” I challenge the boys to tackle each day over the holidays with these life lessons in mind.
During the Assembly, we recognised the large number of our Years 4 to 6 boys who participated in the Maths Olympiad Competition throughout the year, and who performed so strongly. We were also delighted to present each of our Year 6 boys with a certificate recognising their construction and flying of a balsa plane as a part of the Term 4 Flight Unit. Each boy also received a special set of
wings, made by our IT team on our School 3D printer.
