Principal's Message

Pillar of the month of December – Humility


Pillar of the month – Humility
​Congratulations to our Pillars of Care winners for November. In addition to our winners for Care for Self, Others, Place and Learning, we also celebrated our winners who exemplified courage. This was our fifth pillar. In the month ahead, we will be focusing on the virtue of humility.  When we honor our winners, their names, accomplishments and photographs are posted in the school as examples of students who deserve and receive our recognition.
For me, humility is one of the most difficult of all pillars. As an adult, I am still learning about humility daily and trying to make it a regular part of my character. I wish when I was young that someone had impressed upon me the importance of this virtue. Humility can make life simpler, relationships better and can make individuals better leaders.
Humility is symbolized in the Seven Sacred Teachings by the wolf. Our Indigenous Elders and knowledge keepers tell us that wolves live in packs of three to seven. They must often give way to others to understand the needs of the pack may be more important than their individual need. It is symbolized in the sacred teachings as an important imparting of knowledge that occurs when there is an understanding that the reality of our actions has an impact on other humans or on the land. The following examples were shared with students at our pillars of care assembly:
Humility is the loss of ego
Humility is being humble and not arrogant
Humility is a modest view of our own importance. It is shown by those that know the difference between self confidence and pride.
Humility is shown by others that seek to add value to others and elevate them.
Humility is shown by those individual who take responsibility for their actions and accept feedback
It is shown by those that understand the limits of success and are filled with gratitude for what they have.
Students were given examples of how they might demonstrate humility
Letting someone in line in front of you
Letting someone else have the last piece of cake
It is an athlete who credits her success to her teammates even though they themselves have a great skill set.
It is someone who when they win an award credits their success to their relationships and their learning from others.
In the month of December we are looking forward to how humility will be modelled by staff and students at Beddington. Teachers and students will think about and share specific examples of humility in what they do themselves and in their classrooms. I look forward to hearing classrooms share examples of humility at our Pillars of Care assembly at the end of December.
