Schools are exciting places to be. Every day is different, each with its moments of success and challenge. This is even more the case during the external examination period where scores of students are busily revising, preparing and finger-crossing for the ‘right’ questions to come up in their end of course assessments, some of which may even determine the next stage of their lives. Martin Luther King Jr said: “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy”, very apt for our Year 11 and 13 students at the moment. We wish them all well, not luck, because luck has very little to do with examination success! Past and personal experience has shown that hard work, determination and a desire to succeed will beat luck every time. As the actor Denzel Washington said: “I believe that luck is when an opportunity comes along, and you’re prepared for it”. All I can say is that the students and staff have laboured intensively to ensure that the tools for success are sharp and ready for action. Do well!
