Some schools don’t believe in competition – we do. It teaches so much about ‘life’ and engenders so many positive characteristics and qualities within us individually and collectively. This afternoon we had the most wonderful swimming sports in Main Prep: the competition was real, the sense of competing against each other and yet somehow together was tangible. Children cheered as loudly for the club swimmer speeding through the water as for the child who has to work hard just to make it to the other end of the pool. As with so many things at Smallwood, it all seemed magical and yet real at the same time. What a great event to finish our week!
