At the end of a very busy Exhibition week last week, it was wonderful to have our ES Sports Day on Friday in beautiful weather up at YC + AC. I think all of the students had a great time, enjoyed themselves and put in their best efforts. Well done everyone. Thank you too to all the parents that could attend. We hope you had a great time too!
It’s important to be ORGANISED and to REMEMBER what you need to do!
We had a great chat with Ms. Kumamoto and Mr. Weekes today about the importance of REMEMBERING stuff. We are all different and we all work in different ways. BUT – we do have the responsibility to be responsible for ourselves.
So – what works for you. Please write in the comment box below HOW you will try to remember all the things you need to remember and do from now on.
“Your actions show more than your words.” – Jack’s dad (as told by Jack)
1. Trust yourself
2. Break the rules (but not the law!)
3. Don’t be afraid to fail.
4. Don’t listen to people who say it can’t be done (because it can if you want to)
5. Work as hard as you can!
6. Give something back.

What did you learn from her that you will try to use in the future? As she said, how do you wish you will be able to act in the future? Please comment below:
