Courage In The Face Of Something New
Annesley Junior School is more than just a place for your child’s education. Annesley provides an invitation into a caring community that promotes an outlook on life which strengthens the individual, together with the whole family. At Annesley, we proudly nurture creativity and curiosity in our young learners.
This is incorporated into our Chapels where the children are invited to reflect, explore and inquire around the message they hear. Each Chapel, a “valuable action” phrase is presented which reinforces the value and theme for the month. This short sentence is used as a reminder to help us all put into action the value being presented. Remember, everyone is welcome to attend Chapel – so come along and participate with your children.
In our first Chapel, we talked about COURAGE, and how courage helps us overcome the fear which says it can’t be done. This value is often needed in large portions at the beginning of the year, as there can be many new faces, and new friends to meet. We can show courage through our determination to learn new concepts, routines and responsibilities. I’m looking forward to seeing how we all learn, support and grow together, as part of this wonderful community.
