“Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.”
― William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night
“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”
― Mark Twain
“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.”
“Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“A great man is always willing to be little.”
“Great men are not born great, they grow great . . .”
“You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don’t.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly.”
We made it!
For the majority of us it’s also the start of half term.
What has this week brought you and what are you looking fORRward to over half term?
I had the privilege of being guest soloist for Sunderland Symphony Orchestra in Saturday evening at their Promenade Evening.
Lovely day with children talking about favourite songs as well as thoughts about how they will be spending half term.
Wonderful singing in our school church today. Such a reverent setting full of joy and peace.
Exciting to be invited to present and sing at a Teachmeet as well as a conference. But overwhelmed.
Brilliant evening with staff blitzing school. No mORR teaspoons dropped in the sink? I wish. I’ll watch this space.
Kids always bring you down to earth whatever the day brings.
ORRsome moments. Can’t be beaten.
And now it’s Friday.
We are dressing up in clothing similar to that worn 100 years ago. Remembering the start of world war 1 at our school. The Arty Fact Theatre Company visiting too.
I shall be Lady CrORRley at Stocktown Abbey!
Have an ORRsome day and let’s make it an even mORR ORRsome half term.
Be you. Be brilliant. Be ORRsome. Most of all, have fun.
