Today was very busy at school… but it was a reminder of all the good that humanity had to offer. A group of girls from a local private school (who are already on holidays) ventured into our classrooms and provided a morning of entertainment for our students. Our theme was ‘Africa’, they had face painting, drumming, sensory activities, and craft. Such beautiful, kind young girls who gave up a day of their holidays to bring joy to some very special kids. This afternoon our very hardworking gardening expert arrived at my door with a basket full of flowers asking if my class would like to make posies as they had missed their horticulture lesson that morning. So thoughtful! Thank you. Plus we made a posey for my mum – who loves it! I’m so grateful to have a job that reminds me how privileged I truly am. It’s very grounding and warms my heart everyday. I’m also very lucky to share my workplace with kind, compassionate, funny, beautiful people.How many people can say that they work with some of their very best friends? I’m so lucky to be surrounded by so many of my friends at school. My job is never dull and I’m so grateful I can laugh, smile, and sometimes cry.. along side such great people.
https://youtu.be/QrcOdLYBIw0I just wanted to share this with everyone. It’s something I have been teaching my class this year. It really puts your life in perspective. It makes you realise how privileged you truly are. It takes about 15 minutes to watch.. but it is worth it 😊
