We all thoroughly enjoyed today’s assembly led by Robin Harvey, an elite gymnast specialising in trampolining. His 5 top tips provided really thought-provoking, valuable advice:

1. Find a hobby that you love and practise.

2. Work hard.

3. Have fun!

4. Be curious and always willing to learn.

5. Take the opportunities.

Thought of the week

This week’s thought is all about compassion, one of the character traits that we look for within our Character Award Program. In assembly today we learned how one shopkeeper from India had set up a school under a bridge, using his own money to buy materials for learning. Amazing compassion for those in need. We also realised that we cannot be compassionate without paying attention to others, trying to understand their situations, thoughts and feelings.
