Dear Parents and Caregivers,
What is Attitude? Having Attitude means looking at what happens from a positive angle. Aim for an attitude that sees a glass of water as half full not half empty. Oscar Wilde showed the attitude when a friend asked him how well his play had gone on the night. Wilde’s reply “Oh, the play was a great success, but the audience was a failure”. A fisherman displayed the attitude when he said “fishing is getting better. Yesterday I went out for four hours and caught nothing, today it only took me three hours to get the same result.”
Choose to be positive. A positive attitude has positive spin-offs. In many areas of human activity, success and achievement are more a result of attitude than of knowledge or technical skill. Maintaining a positive attitude makes a challenge a productive experience, moves a seemingly immovable obstacle, improves our confidence, helps us take in our stride all that befalls us. Positive attitude has another tremendous side effect: it is contagious. Others catch it. It’s probably fair to say that attitude can’t be taught, it has to be caught.
Congratulations to both the junior and senior dance troupes who performed at Elim College last week. They both entertained and thrilled the audience with their high energy performances. Thank you to Mrs Tracee McKenzie, Miss Anitra Roberts and Mr David Sasis for training our dancers to such a polished level. Well done!
