Tuesday 22nd to Friday 25th April 2014
This term our whole school focus is ACHIEVEMENT. When you talk about an individual’s achievements they can mean many different things.
The word ‘achievement’ means ‘something accomplished successfully, especially by means of work, skills, practice or perseverance, great courage or special effort’.
Each day at St Edmund’s everyone has some achievements which they can reflect upon, celebrate and share. However, as the definition of achievements shows our ultimate larger achievements take hard work, practice and perseverance.
For example, our Year 10 and 11 students taking GCSE exams this year will have their achievements recorded on certificates which they will need and use for the rest of their lives. Their hard work in Year 7, 8 and 9 has contributed to how well they are going to do.
Hence, just as Year 10 and 11 students work hard to try and achieve high GCSE grades, so must every student work towards their target levels.
It is not just our grades or levels which are achievements within schools. We are very lucky at St Edmund’s that our learning environment is safe, happy and that behaviour is good. This is a great achievement which we all contribute towards.
Bigger than school – our community – our country – our world! What an achievement it would be if everyone was safe and happy at all times.
However, our achievements will make a difference to us and our community. Maybe one day your achievement might make a difference to the world.
May the Lord bless us during this Easter season.
May we be a source of life and joy for others.
May we learn to give of ourselves and not count the cost.
May we always be open to the abundant blessings that you shower upon us every day.
