It takes courage to travel to another country where you don’t know anybody, you don’t speak the language and the culture is completely different to your own.
You stay in a home you have never been in before, with people you have never met, eating food that is unfamiliar. On your first day you take a bus on a journey you have never been on before and arrive at school for the first time.
Already our students have shown a great deal of courage to do these things which by most people’s standards are ‘out of the comfort zone’. I have spoken about this before, in a post last May, but it is worth mentioning again I think.
Our students have already demonstrated their courage by the time they arrive on the first Monday, but we want them to keep showing this in their learning – being prepared to make mistakes, to fail, to try new things and to not give up.
How can you as a student be courageous today (and every day) in your learning?
