From the Principal’s Desk: 11 April 2019

Dear Parents

Welcome to Term 2!  I trust you are doing exceptionally well and looking forward in anticipation to what this Term may bring in terms of opportunities, challenges, relationships and life in general. What a wonderful opportunity to be alive and make a difference by our contributions.

Weekly Thought: Love
“Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your gold and good healthhave vanished.” – Og Mandino

After reading this, one invariably asks oneself:

  • How much time do I spend working on and building “a future”?
  • How much time do I spend on exercise, diets and general health?
  • Do I make enough time for those closest to me who love me and whom I love?
  • And is that time enough?

Life is a package of limited time that all of us receive. Everyone’s package differs, and we don’t know when we’ll run out of time. There’s very little that we can be 100% sure of; what we can be sure of, however, is that we have “now” – not the time we think we’ll have in a minute, a week, a month or a year from now…

What am I doing with my “now?” Am I treasuring the love I’m receiving? Am I building and depositing into the most important relationships around me? May we all take this message to heart and effect the changes we need to make in order for us to have meaningful and fulfilled lives.

Have a weekend of impact and be aware of the love coming your way.
