Inspirational Girls Breakfast

On Wednesday last week, 30 girls and a member from each of their families, enjoyed a special breakfast in the school hall. The breakfast was put on by friends and members of the Addington school community, who provided a delicious menu for the girls.
Ali Palmer (our wonderful music and choir teacher) spoke to the group about everyone having a “gift”, and the need to find out what your gift is. It was important to grow your gift, like a seed and to persist and not give up. She talked about her own experiences in rock bands like Atlas, and how they were given so much but she felt something was missing. Ali explained she would much rather be here at Addington helping us with our music. Sharing her gift.
Ali gave each girl a spring bulb, which was later planted out into part of the Rose garden and will provide an amazing colourful display in the spring.
A huge thank you to our community, and to Ali for the wonderful and inspiring start to the day.
