MONTH OF JUNE AND THE VIRTUE OF HONESTY

As June arrives, many of us look forward to the end of another school
year and we anticipate the summer months and  well deserved holidays that come with it.  June is a month where there are not only many “lasts” but many “new beginnings” and “changes” to look forward to.

As we end a school year, we look forward to new beginnings next year and the years to come. Our grade 8 students will be having their “last” day of school at Holy Jubilee at the end of June, but are looking forward to new and exciting endeavours in high school. We wish them success in their future as they embark in another exciting journey in their lives!

Some staff members, noted in the school newsletter, will be sadly leaving us but they too will be starting fresh at other schools; bringing their many talents with them to share with others. Also noted in the newsletter, some staff members will be retiring. They will always be remembered for their accomplishments. We thank them for their years of hard work and dedication to our team. As one chapter ends, another begins. We congratulate them on their retirement!

Change is a constant process. With the passage of time everything goes on changing. However, there are certain things that remain unchanged. The intact and unchangeable thing is ethics or moral discipline we call “honesty”. In the month of June we celebrate and promote the virtue of honesty; which is one of the greatest virtues that we should adhere to in our life with the belief that it is an important aspect of human character. The word honesty signifies being trustworthy and loyal. Honesty is selflessness and upholding genuine relations in family and society.
