Annual School Report
I would like to commence this report with a little story that I feel encapsulates what we are about here at Infant Jesus School.
There was man, a parent, who was walking past a construction area. There were several workers engaged in various activities, and the man asked three of them the same question, “What are you doing?”
The first worker replied flippantly, I’m hauling bricks from one place to another trying not to think about it!”
The second said, “I’m earning a living the best way I can.”
And the third answered, “I’m building a great school – a place that will make tomorrow better!”
As a primary school principal, I can really empathise with the last worker’s appraisal, because I realise only too well that here, in this school, we are not just moving children around from one grade to another, we are building for their future and building for our future, as well. Here, we are aiming at nurturing the people who will make tomorrow better, and I am extremely proud to be part of that.
As a school, and in particular, a Catholic primary school, we have been given, as parents and educators, one of the greatest honours and responsibilities that are bestowed on an individual. We have been entrusted with the privilege to help nurture, educate and form the lives of young people in a way that is in accordance with Gospel Values. If we were to really look seriously at this task, it may be considered far too overwhelming to even contemplate.
