Mixed feelings were shown today during the first day of classes for our students. For many of them, it was a very joyful morning, because they met with their classmates again after the long summer holidays; but for others, it was a very tense and anxious day, as it sometimes is for those who begin a new school phase.
After meeting friends and teachers first, the entire school gathered in the fields, where the Headmistress and the presidents of the different student councils welcomed the students to a new cycle of educational experiences and challenges.
Miss Lorna also invited the entire community to work on a very important matter during this year: Accepting people’s differences and learning to nurture from them. “Let’s celebrate our differences, let’s celebrate what we all are; let’s celebrate how big we have become, with our differences. Instead of fighting these differences, instead of being bullies against these differences, I invite you all, adults, children and teenagers to think about this: Let's celebrate our differences and be great, and think about the messages that the people at the Oscars (Academy Awards) ceremony gave us last Sunday ... We can make this a marvellous year if we all work together, if we have transparent feelings and transparent communication ... The best of luck for all of you during 2018”, ended The headmistress.
Welcome to this new school period, let everyone enjoy an excellent 2018!
