A question is often asked of children as they grow: What do you want to be when you grow up? When I was a child I would hear children around me speak of being all things from a doctor, a nurse to a rubbish collector. There was always a range of possibilities given. Over the years those children have grown up and found their place in life.
My answer as a child was to be a teacher. This was closely followed with the dream of being an “Infants Headmistress”. I have now taught for over twenty years and have been a teaching Principal for ten of those years.
It is a privilege to be entrusted with the care and wellbeing of children. Walking with them as they engage with their learning. Watching them embrace their developing friendships. Equipping them to manage life issues and extending them beyond their present knowledge and understanding. All this is part of the joy which comes with the role of teacher and Principal.
Parents and families are given the most significant task of raising children from babies into adulthood. When we partner with parents and families in raising their children we are very aware of the responsibility which comes with that privilege. Our students are the new generation who have the opportunity to influence their world. We know that God has a plan and a purpose for each life and as they seek out that plan they will be able to grow and learn with conviction and certainty.
I encourage parents to have the conversation with their child about their hopes and dreams then visit us and see how we can journey with you and your child.
