Principal's Address: The best you can be!

Ms Monagle questioned students: What does “Do your best!", “Be the best you can be”, “Be confident” mean? What does that really look like? In a world where everything is more complex and more competitive, if we are not doing our best, we may get left behind. But, being our best should not seen to be a burden, it should be an opportunity. Your ultimate goal should be to become the best you can be and create the life you want. Get in the Driver's seat and move towards being the Best Version of Yourself:

  • Own who you are: Your behaviour, your attitude, your presence and how you present yourself are the making of you – you are in full control. Own what you’ve been doing up to this point. Know that it’s you that got you here and it’s you who will take you wherever you want to go.
    We are in the driver’s seat of our life.  Be real with yourself.
  • Surround yourself with good people: If you are able to commit to only surrounding yourself with amazing people, people who do as they are asked, use appropriate language, then you are moving in the right direction. If you can’t find any people who are a positive influence on you then, look in new places. They’re out there, and they’re waiting to meet you, and be in the passenger seat beside you.
    • Do the people around you bring out your best?
    • Do the people around you help you make good choices? 
    • Do they really help you or hinder your positive progress?

Great experiences and good choices are made in the company of great people.

  • Continual Growth and Learning: When you make a mistake, there are only three things you should ever do about it:  admit it, learn from it, and don’t repeat. When you admit a mistake you are driving in the right direction, further when you ‘unpack’ our mistake and know why you made it we are learning. If you listen, everyday you will learn something new.  What you learn becomes part of who you are.  Like who you are, you are also in control of your learning. If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you.  If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.
  • Believe in yourself: What you tell yourself every day will either lift you up or pull you down.  If you know where you want to go and what you want you are headed in the right direction.  It may not always be easy to achieve what you want but through this struggle and persistence you will find the stronger you.

As you move towards creating the best version of yourself, remember you are in the driver’s seat – you are in control; who you take with you – who you surround yourself with - will determine the direction you go.  If you learn from your mistakes and have belief you have in yourself – you will reach your desired destination.
