Excellence encourages one about life generally; it shows the spiritual wealth of the world.

Wondrous is the strength of cheerfulness, and its power of endurance - the cheerful man will do more in the same time, will do it; better, will preserve it longer, than the sad or sullen.

I love getting emails like this one from Miss Gray ...

Hi Tim

Just wanted to point out two lovely things I saw Rachel do today.
1. Summer had spilt yoghurt on her leg at lunch and she was trying to scrap it off with her spoon.  While she was doing this she was unknowingly pouring the remaining yoghurt onto the concrete. Rachel was trying to get her attention, "Summer, Summer, your yoghurt". Summer was concentrating too hard to notice her! But she tried really hard to get her attention.

2.  At fitness kowhai got told to go to the courts. Summer and Fraser hadn't quite taken this in board. Rachel saw them and asked, "what colour are you guys in?", "Kowhai", "that's my group. Come with me you guys". And she led them to where they needed to be.

It was quite lovely and I'd like to nominate her for an award for her awareness of others and doing her best to help them out

It's a wonderful thing to be optimistic. It keeps you healthy and it keeps you resilient.

My apologies for not posting earlier ... a huge thank you to Jacqui M and Stacey P for all of their sausage cooking on Friday at the softball tournament!  Thanks too, to Maria W for preparing last Friday's lunch at school.  It's great having parents who are always prepared to give up their time for fundraisers and events such as these!

I like to encourage people to realize that any action is a good action if it's proactive and there is positive intent behind it.
