n.b. This advice from a colleague of many years ago, whose name I do not recall, but whose face and kind words I have never forgotten. I pass them on here, admitting that it not always advice I followed when younger. I pray that when my final stepping out comes I am able to close that door gently.
n.b. When the then new head teacher first arrived at the school I worked in, he told the incoming Year 7 students the above three things that would make their time at secondary school a positive experience.
The above “rules” I have tried (and keep trying) to apply to my own journey in life.
Mark, thank you for this advice; it makes a lot of sense.
