A message for Year 6

Friday 10th July, 2020

Thank you Year 6 for all of the happy memories that you have provided us with during your time at our schools.

It has been an absolute pleasure to get to know you in my short time as CEO. Each of you has brought your own flavour to our school and I look forward to seeing you flourish as you take the next step in your lives. Some of you are great at mathematics, others English, netball, tennis, violin, trumpet, sewing, cooking, telling jokes, computing and so many other things that I can’t list them all here. Take these skills and build on them. Don’t forget to work on your weaknesses as well, we all have them.

Here is some advice for making the most of your future. Take it or leave it, you’re big students now and can make your own decisions.

Be brave about meeting people and trying something you haven’t done before. Have big dreams and ambitions. Don’t worry if they don’t happen, try something else.

It’s easy to feel defeated at times, but view these moments as a challenge. Learn from your mistakes and pick yourself up to try again.

Positivity attracts positivity; do not be negative about things. Try not to only stick to friends who are like you, reach out and listen to those who have different interests and backgrounds.

As you get older, you’ll get to know yourself better. Always be true to yourself. Never try to be what you are not.

Most importantly. Have fun and enjoy life. Smile and make others smile around you. Don’t ever put anything nasty in print or on screen, however horrible someone else might have been.

Be kind.

You are wonderful. Go forth and make the world great!
