We Are Our Choices
Throughout 2018, students were again, provided with a wealth of choice both inside and outside the school and within the regular curriculum or via extra-curricular activities.
Many elected to take every opportunity provided and to develop their skills and show case their talents in visual and performing arts, through the production, Theatre Studies performances, junior plays, art exhibitions or in concerts. Others chose to participate in a range of sports, coaching or training and being part of school teams, involved in various competitions.
In the classroom, students made choices in relation to subjects, work ethic, and attitude to learning. There was no compulsion to attend extra classes or seek out further teacher guidance but some selected to receive support before or after school. Some took up the offer to be extended with competitions in Maths and Science.
Students became active members of the student leadership body and School Council contributing to student voice.
Others nominated themselves and through the rigorous selection process were selected to be involved in the trip in 2019 to Borneo, the Alpine School next year and travels to Japan and New Zealand. Students decided to be involved in school camps and excursions and reap the benefits. These events were available and pupils made the choice to apply or ignore the offers.
In life we are continually faced with a range of opportunities and we are able to be involved or not, and consequently accept the results of our choices.
We are our choices. (John Paul Satre)
