From the Acting Principal

Schools are first and foremost about teaching and learning, but they are also about things such as character forming and worldliness. We regularly speak to our boys about inclusion and equality, particularly in regards to race, the poor and the marginalised, as we should. As we celebrate International Women's Day it is timely then for us all to take a moment to encourage our boys to look inwardly, understanding that exclusion and inequality also occurs close to home, in our own communities, and can be gender based. I believe strongly that for our boys to transition into good men requires them to change from thinking like a boy, i.e. “I need a mum” to developing a more mature, respectful and equal relationship with the females in their lives, be they mothers, sisters, family, friends or teachers.

It is timely to use the impetus of International Women’s Day to help our boys to understand that these are the kinds of masculine traits that define a good man.

As always The Star contains lots more examples of our boys' journey towards being good men so please read on and enjoy ....

 

In the spirit of Blessed Edmund,

Terry Blizzard
Acting Principal
