Our new principal was inducted recently. We had an enormous assembly and there were many encouraging words for and from her. She told us how she came from a family of farmers. Like a farmer grows a crop, a teacher grows by learning. All the teachers and other staff members were there and they all wore black cloaks; all the hoods of the cloaks were different colours to represent the University or College they studied at. It was amazing to congratulate her as she became a principal. She reminded us of Colossians 3:12 12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
