Head of Junior School
One of the activities I often do in an enrolment interview is look at feathers with the young person who is visiting with mum or dad. I have a collection of various colours, shapes and sizes that reflect the brilliant diversity of our living planet. This collection often starts a conversation about things we enjoy, value and appreciate. It’s often the little feathers that get chosen as favourite.
This collection is a bit like school. There are the flashy bright kids, the warm and friendly kids. There are the colourful characters and the quiet achievers. Unique, social, imperfect and hopeful – all wrapped up in a community that see life as purposeful.
Easter is an event we hold as significant in our school. It points to a real moment in history where God acted for everyone – every age, in every time, in every culture. It’s easy to miss in the flashy show of chocolate, bunnies (or bilbies) and holidays. But take a good look and even a sceptic can appreciate what real love for our world looks like.
Enjoy the holidays, and keep an eye out for the beauty and truth in the little, hidden things.
