From the Head of Junior School
This week the Junior School commissioned the Student Representative Council (SRC) elect for 2020. We wish them every success and joy in their undertakings for the year ahead, in knowing that they shape the College for the better as they build student agency. We recently enjoyed the unveiling and blessing of the Buddy Bench (photos below) at our junior primary assembly, a legacy from the SRC of 2019. This ecologically created bench will help to ensure children feel valued and included in our community.
Jesuit spirituality provides a very clear and distinctive model of servant leadership built on the premise of love. We are each known and loved as children of God. We are, each of us, called to bring this love into our families, our schools, and the wider world through our actions, just as our students are challenged to do.
St Teresa of Ávila (1515-82)
“Christ has no body on earth now but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours; yours are the eyes through which he looks with compassion on the world; yours are the feet with which he walks to do good; yours are the hands with which he blesses all the world.”
The invitation exists for each of us to respond generously, in co-creating with our God a loving and hope-filled world in order that we too may set hearts on fire.
