From the Headmaster's Desk
This term our Year 11 students participated in a one-day conference put together by our Deputy Head and our Heads of House called BODi Day. The title is an acronym for “By Our Deeds: Inquiry”. Like a true conference, the students were presented with keynote speeches and had the opportunity to participate in a number of workshop sessions over the course of the day. There were sessions on healthy eating and physical well-being, emotional self-control, mindfulness, yoga and meditation, social connectedness and integrity. In the evening, parents and students were invited back to the school to discuss the nature of ‘meaningful relationships’. The focus of this conference though, was on a couple of big questions: what does it mean to be a ‘good man’, and how can we find happiness and contentment in our lives? Such questions are central to all of us as we navigate through difficult times, and are surely as important in education as Mathematics or History.
