Good Luck and Congratulations
Dag Hammarskjold was a reflective and prayerful man. Dag became the second Secretary-General for the United Nations in 1953. He was killed on the 18 September 1961 in a plane crash while he was trying to resolve problems in the African Republic of Congo. Before his death he wrote:
We die on the day
when our lives
cease to be illumined
by the steady radiance
of a wonder
the source of which
is beyond reason.
These characteristics of wonder, awe and curiosity are qualities that fit well within our College Learning Framework. In Dare to Be we are working to have the students challenged, relational, engaged and deep thinkers in their learning. Students who are engaged should be curious and full of wonder. I am concerned about them being awe-full where maybe they should be awe-filled!
It is a remarkable attitude/attribute to be curious. Can we encourage the students to question carefully?
We would like our students to be inspired by creation from the smallest living creatures to the vastness of the mighty stars and planets. It would be wonderful if they have a reverence for life and an appreciation of the people they meet.
Dag Hammarskjold also wrote:
The best and most wonderful thing that can happen to you in this life is that you should be silent and let God work and speak.
Please keep our Year 12 students in your prayers as they face their final days at school. We pray that they will work hard to realise their potential in these upcoming exams.
