Principal's Message

Doohickey December!


Welcome back to the season of warmth, lights, that Christmas feeling and for our children, excitement!
 
As my sister and I got older, my Gran would often refer to it as ‘thingamajiggy time’ as we found it ever increasingly difficult to find her gifts and she would always end up with at least a few gadget type thingamabobs that got a laugh and then sat in the sideboard on their way to wherever ‘wotsits’ go. All she wanted actually was just to hang out with everyone.
 
My Gran has since passed away, but last weekend, I found myself scouring the internet for something unusual for my dad and I found ‘nothing’, as in someone was actually selling ‘the gift of nothing’ which looked like a ball of -air! That made me laugh, but also made me think how valuable a message that sent.
 
We cannot wrap or put a bow on undivided attention, to time, reflection, and kindness or to being there for each other, and we cannot put a price on that either.
 
For many it is one of our favorite times of year, and for many in our immediate and wider community it is not. They experience incredible stress and guilt because it is almost impossible to provide even a tiny version of the Christmas that our media tell us everyone else is having.
 
It has been heartwarming to see our students attend to others’ needs by donating to our Mayor’s food drive, be excited to write letters to those less fortunate than themselves in another country, and see (although perhaps not) our invisible Kindness Ninjas performing random acts of appreciation and kindness throughout the school. Check out our photos!
 
As a community, we are continually modeling the real gifts and our children do not yet realize that they will thank us for being there in so many ways, for all our futures.
 
I hope you all have a peaceful, joyful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
 
Just as a reminder – In the spirit of Christmas, any Lost and Found not claimed by December 20 2019 will be donated to Goodwill.
 
Jane Gibson
