Today in year assembly we started our new PSHE unit, ‘Going for Goals’ where we discussed our school’s view on learning:
At Simon de Senlis, we are passionate about learning. Through our distinct approach to learning, fuelled by inspiration, high expectations and innovation, we are building a community of curious, industrious and agile learners who make a positive ‘dent in the universe’. – Simon de Senlis Reimagined – Summer 2013
We then took the opportunity to discuss what our own goals were and how we want to go on and make a dent in the universe. One word that stood out to us was ‘industrious’ and it was clear that hard work is important in order for us to succeed.
- ‘A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.’ – Colin Powell – General
- ‘People think I must have been so talented at an early age, but I don’t know – was it talent or hard work? Who knows?’ – Monica Seles – Tennis Player
Year six would be interested to hear what your own goals are and how you would like to make a dent in the universe. Do you want to be a teacher, run the country, create the latest epic invention or be the next person to travel into space? Whatever it is we want to know!
