Principal’s address

Mr Green spoke to the topic: the value of Integrity.

He related the rules of the game of Golf and his experiences with the game. If you’ve never played the game, he encourages you to have a go. It is a ‘leveler’ – where everyone starts from the same place.

Mr Green then told the story of an incident from a US Open in 1925 where golfer, Bobby Jones broke a rule and wasn’t picked up on it. He was about to win the US Open by 1 point but declared his actions and, in that moment of integrity, came second.

There is only one way to live your life – choosing honesty whether someone is looking or not. Integrity has been a conscious choice for one of our school values.

Remember to think: ‘My Integrity matters more than any impulse I may feel at the moment.’

Integrity affects ourselves and affects others. Proud Hawks have integrity.
