The Staff, Governors and Children of Cathedral School though very hard about a motto that would sum up Cathedral School. We thought about what we are trying to help each other learn at school and what school means to us.
In the Bible, John 10 vs 10 tell us that Jesus said “I have come that they may have life in all its fullness.” Everyone agreed that this would be a fantastic motto for our school.
Life in all its fullness is about living a varied and full life full of learning, growing, helping, reward, joy, excitement and caring for each other. At school we aim to help each other to learn how to do this. It is not always easy to live life in this way and so we help each other with the challenges that come along the way. As a Church of England School we also look to Jesus to help and guide us.
At school we have reflected on what “Life in all its fullness” means to us. Here are some examples of our reflections:
“Help and care for each other. When someone falls over help them get up or help them when they are sad.”
“Make the most of your opportunities, always do your best with your work and in play.”
“Do your best to do everything you can do, try to listen carefully and work hard.”
“”You just be yourself and follow the path of God.”
“We should all help each other to be better people, let them know the right thing to do.”
“Life in all it’s fullness is a life where Jesus loves us and helps us live our lives to the full.”
