No, we are not an Educate Together school. Though we share many progressive educational ideas and practices with our secular cousins, one we don’t is the idea that everyone gets a medal. Yes, everyone is applauded for their efforts and encouraged to win, but there is no shame in finishing fourth or lower, and there is always another race to run and try to win.
On this, Mr. Kelleher and Dash Parr agreed. Anyways, we would finish out of the medals if there were one for ‘Sports Day Reporting’ as we forgot to include the awards photos from the Second and Third Year Sports Days. See the happy winners above and some almost-as-happy competitors below!
