In our New Year assemblies this week, Mr Dey reminded students of the joy of learning – the making sense of information and experiences for oneself – and encouraged them to always keep learning, never being put off by failure along the way. He also urged students to be better learners this year by being more resilient, resourceful, responsible, reasoning and reflective. “Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can – there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did.” Sarah Caldwell
