Please check our school website for the PowerPoint presentation on Budget & Fees. Stay tuned for a parent survey that will be coming to you shortly as well! Below, you find some highlights.

May 29 Update

Dear Parents & Guardians,
As we are heading into the first week of June, consider the following:
One of Buddha’s sayings is: “It is your resistance to ‘what is’ that causes your suffering.” We all know that we can’t change ‘what is’ at this moment in time. What we do control, however, is how we let it affect us. We either allow negativity to build, which means that we give away our agency, our power, our control!
OR
We accept ‘what is’ and keep our agency, our power, our control!
I don’t like to be miserable! In order to be happy, I had to stop resisting ‘what is’. I had to accept/embrace it. As Reinhold Niebuhr once said (and I am paraphrasing his famous quote!): Change the things you can change and accept the ones you cannot.
I am thinking about our CWS students & families each day. I am hoping that you have all found new ways of being, that you have all accepted the ‘what is’ of our current time. When I was a young single mother with two young children, going to university and being so, so broke, my sons would sometimes say: “Mommy, why can’t we ….?” I would always reply: “We don’t have much, but we have many things to be thankful for. Count them with me, boys: We have a roof over our head; we are sleeping in a warm bed; we had breakfast, lunch and dinner; we have 4 grand-parents who love us deeply; we live in a wonderful country; it is peaceful in this country; we have clean water; we are safe; we can see a doctor if we need one  etc.”
I encourage all of you to count your blessing, count the things you can be thankful for. Make it a family game! Discuss with your child/ren what a person can be thankful for, brainstorm together and then make a family list! Put it up on your fridge and look at it if you have a ‘blue’ moment. I assure you: it will help.
These past couple of weeks, I have been grateful for the passing of winter, the sunshine awakening my garden, melting the snow and allowing me to work the land. Watching first the snowdrops coming up and now the tulips, daffodils and hyacinths blooming while the cornflowers, peonies, clematis and salad are growing. I find nothing more calming and nurturing that getting my hands dirty in the soil, watching insects scurry away as I turn over rotten leaves.  My garden is my happy. What is yours?​
