On the first day back, after gathering with their Guardians in the morning, the whole High School assembled in the Hall for a dynamic teacher-led presentation on sustainability in the School. The aim was to introduce new initiatives, promote the Enviro Club and to provide a potent reminder of our individual responsibilities to protect the natural world.
In this period of their development, adolescents respond positively when presented with aspirations and ideals that provide them with sustenance for their journey to adulthood. In this gradual development of sound judgement, founded on clear thinking, we must also ensure that accompanying actions are implemented to address change. This process assists our young adults to form a relationship between their inner lives and the outer world.
