I open this edition of Pastorale by focusing on two quotes by famous Nobel prize winner and saint, Mother Teresa.
‘Discipline is the best friend of man, because its takes you to reach the deepest longings of your heart’
‘If you want to change the world, go home and love your family’
I have been amazed by the level of engagement, enthusiasm and commitment from our students to their online learning over the past few weeks. We have very clear structures in place and you are putting in so much effort to meet the high expectations. My advice is keep going, stay disciplined and stay resilient. You are doing great and you should be very proud of what you are achieving and as always we are sharing examples of excellent work which has been shared by your very proud teachers. However, it is important that we keep perspective and remember what is most important to us all. If you are worried or concerned about anything then please communicate with us and remember to be tolerant, caring, respectful to those you love the most.
Stay safe and well
