Last week at assembly, I wished our boys and staff a Happy New Year and thanked them for a great return to school. I drew special attention to the fact that the start of a new year often provides us with an opportunity to pause and consider the various parts of our life that we aim to change – spend more time with family, go to the gym twice a week, focus on what brings happiness, eat less junk food – rarely, however, do we place as much emphasis on our habits we should continue.
Each and every day, I have the privilege of experiencing the generosity and commitment of the Crescent School family. I see teachers helping their students to take risks, try new things and learn from their experiences both inside and outside the classroom. I see colleagues supporting one another in their teaching, mentoring and coaching pursuits. I also see the ongoing involvement of current and past parents and alumni volunteering to ensure that their School continues to thrive and evolve.
