Executive Principal’s Blog – 7.7.23 ‘Establishing Endless Echoes’
We all know that words have power and that what echoes from our mouths often reflects our hearts – humbling thoughts! In the recent student survey, along with many useful suggestions as to how we can continue to improve the school, there were some powerful words written from the heart which have definitely created positive echoes across our learning community:
These powerful sentiments are often mirrored by words from parents to hard working, caring staff across the school. Again, just recently the mother of a Year 13 student sent these words into school on an email:
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you have done for my daughter recently; you have helped her so much I cannot put into words! You have been a truly lifesaver at the last hurdle. Thank you so much for everything you have done; thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done. Yours sincerely Year 13 Parent
It was Mother Teresa who stated that ‘kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless’ – so true. As we continue to promote our ‘Mind to Be Kind’ mantra it is people like Mother Teresa who inspire us to do more – not just with our words but also with our actions.
As many of us know she founded the Missionaries of Charity, an organisation that had an influence across more than 130 managing homes for people dying of HIV and AIDS, leprosy, and tuberculosis. Her organisation also ran soup kitchens, counselling programmes, as well as orphanages and schools.
