May we always look for opportunity in our day to plant seeds of hope in all that we do both within and outside the classroom. May we always nurture those seeds so that they land in good soil with the potential to grow and eventually flourish in the months and years ahead.
Hope creates solidarity. May we continue to hope for self and hope for one another. Making a future of life together where we accept, respect and appreciate our differences so we may learn to live well together.
Hope reaches to God. Hope finds expression in our hearts and minds – moving us prayerfully towards God and through the challenges of life. I hope to continue to speak up about injustice and be an upstander for the marginalised and disadvantaged in our community.

It seems to me that we should encourage students and our school community to see hope through the lens of anger and courage- what injustices can we see and how can we make change? Whilst utilising hope not as "blind optimism" but as prayer and joy, and something very useful to our daily lives.
