Our Year of Wisdom 2016-17
“When children leave us we want them to be compassionate, self confident with a love of life and learning.”
We all want to “Be the best we can be.”
Our Year of Wisdom - The Beginning
“Wisdom is a tree of life to all who embrace her,
Those who lay hold of her will be blessed.”
– Proverbs 3.18
“Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom. “
“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”
This year at the school we want to think, act, learn and speak wisely to ‘be the best we can be’ and as a result we have decided that 2016-17 will be ‘Our Year of Wisdom’. Over the year the pupils will think about the wisdom of their words and actions, develop an understanding of the difference between ‘being clever’ and being wise, develop their growth mindsets, develop an appreciation and respect for the wisdom of others and reflect on what is of real value in life.
We will start off by exploring what we can learn from others at our Religion and Belief Roadshow where the pupils will have the opportunity to meet with people from different cultures and practitioners of different faiths.
We introduced our year at a special assembly for pupils and parents. A presentation from this session can be accessed via the link. We also unveiled our ‘Tree of Life’ in the hall. Over the year we will add words of wisdom and good advice to help us in our daily life.
