As the term draws to a close, I want to take a moment to reflect on knowledge. We are all familiar with the saying: “Knowledge is power”, but I am here to challenge that. Knowledge is not power.

Having knowledge means nothing without applying it. For example, having all the knowledge about the best diets in the world will mean nothing if you do not apply it to your own lifestyle.

We are bombarded with knowledge from every side. Be it from the teachers, the TV, or social media. There is a constant overflow of information coming our way, but what are we doing with it?

My challenge to you is to start using what you learn. Apply the relevant knowledge to your life and you will see positive change!

Plutarch put it this way: “The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.” We need to take our knowledge and do something with it. Otherwise, there is no point in constantly taking in more knowledge. [read more]

Remember: Knowledge is not power. Applied knowledge is power!

As we draw closer and closer to the end of the term; it is a time to reflect on all the good that has happened thus far, and the bad that we have had to overcome.

Many people have had to opt for new ways of doing things to match this new way of life we find ourselves in now. The learners have also had to overcome many challenges this term and have shown great promise and success while doing so.

As the journey of this year continues, here is something to remember: [read more]

As we draw closer to the end of our first term, we start to realize now more than ever that not only does time fly but also that every second counts. The beginning of this week marked the start of our test series for the term, which parents, learners, and educators have geared up for in preparation to ensure that all goals set are met for this period.

Below I would like to leave the learners with a few motivational quotes as we continue and complete the term.

Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.

 There are no limits to what you can accomplish, except the limits you place on your own thinking.

 Your positive action combined with positive thinking results in success. [read more]

There was a farmer who grew excellent quality corn. Every year, he won the award for the best-grown corn. One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it.

The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbours. “How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbours when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked. [read more]

As the primary school starts preparing for their assessments next week, it’s important to take a moment and reflect on all that has happened this term so far. After our unusual start to the year, we have settled in quickly and should be proud of ourselves and the way we have handled the situation.

This has been a very tough time for both the learners and teachers, but we have worked hard and continued to overcome any obstacles that we were faced with. Thank you to the parents for your patience and ongoing support for your children and teachers. I’m sure the learners will approach next week, with a positive attitude and the determination to perform well. [read more]

Who you want to be is more important than what you want to be.

If you want life to change then you have to change. If you want life to be better then you have to be better. Most of us live a life of holding back. We are afraid to take the risk.

We would rather be quiet than ask the teacher to explain something that we do not understand. Did we do all we can do today? Did you use your time efficiently when studying for the test?

Do you want to be the person that lives with regrets, or do you want to be the person that one day will say that you have lived your life to the fullest? [read more]

Having compassion starts with having compassion for all those unwanted parts of ourselves, all those imperfections that we don’t even want to look at.

It is important to be kind to yourself, especially in the face of stress, danger, and the uncertainty of the times we are in. You’ve already stuck with yourself for a lifetime.

Why not improve this relationship?

Michelle Obama’s advice to students is to build character and be persistent every day of their lives and never give up.  Regarding this point, she assures "if you are willing to go deeper, if you are willing to get up when you fall, if you are willing to work and dedicate yourself until your weakness turns into strength, then you will develop a set of skills that you can mould and apply to whatever situation you find," insists the former first lady of the United States.

The iconic figure shares one of her secrets:  She has never hired anyone for an outstanding career path, but for their human quality, which includes hard work, being trustworthy, and being open to new points of view.

All of these values are learned from parents and the communities in which we grew up.  For Michelle, what the world needs is resilience. [read more]

To change the world - Unknown Monk

There once was a young man, who wanted to change the world.  He found it was too difficult to change the world, so he tried to change the nation. When he couldn’t change the nation, he focused on changing his town.  But he was unable to change his town, so as an older man tried to change his family.

Now as an old man, he realized the only thing he could change was himself.  He now saw that if he had first changed himself, that would have impacted his family.  His family could have influenced the town.  The town could have changed a nation and he would have indeed changed the world.
