Today, 13th October, we enjoyed a very nice assembly presented by Miss Debra. Miss Debra asked the students what they had to be grateful for and showed us a video about a man with a significant physical disability. he brought a positive message to the children, explaining that we should celebrate who we are and celebrate what we have.
The students were encouraged to share what they were grateful for. Feedback came from students from grade 1-6 and the responses included comments like: "I am thankful for my health", "I am thankful for my family", "I am thankful for my school and my teachers", "I am thankful for my environment":
We would like to thank Miss Debra for organising today's assembly. Ironically, I had sent an email to staff the evening earlier with the following message:
"If you woke up this morning with more health than illness.. You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day."
"If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation... You are ahead of 700 million people in the world."
