Yesterday I reminded Year 12 2021 that our job as a school community, as parents and teachers, is to give them or rather help them create a master key to the future – the key that unlocks multiple doors rather than just one. I noted that there are four things that we all need, along with the right attitude and approach to life, four things that determine our ability to unlock the biggest future possible. Character, effort, the ability to learn and the skills or tools of learning. These form the key with which we unlock the future…
Thinking is hard, as is learning, but then again, so is anything worthwhile. Our job remains to put in place the right conditions for our students to think, learn and grow.
“I know that good leadership is well within the grasp of Year 12 2021. My prayer for them is that they may serve us as they lead, even as we serve them as they work towards the conclusion of their schooling. In this we ask that God might give us grace, give us gratitude, courage, and compassion, as by our actions we respect those we lead and serve”, Tim Watson.

– John 8:31-32
