Yesterday we welcomed back 12 Glennie Graduates of 2020 to share their success stories with girls in the Middle and Senior Years at our Annual Scholars’ Assembly.
While it would be very easy to define academic success in terms of ATAR results alone, what made this Assembly meaningful and accessible to all students in Years 7 to 12, was the message that success is a much bigger concept than great results. The pursuit of academic success belongs to anyone and everyone.
Academic success is giving your best effort every time. It is not about knowing the most or being the best. It is not about having the ideal schedule or the ideal life with a perfect GPA to match. It is not the best scholarship or the most academic achievement awards. Instead, academic success is finding the best person you can be and becoming more like that person every day. It is challenging yourself, challenging your mind, and doing more than you thought you could do. It is seeking out understanding through hard work and practice, learning new ideas daily and sharing those ideas with others, as well as taking up opportunities and challenges when they are presented to you.
The success stories shared by our recent Graduates were relevant to every student. Key messages from the graduates included having perseverance, maximising opportunities, developing new skill sets, and being courageous enough to aim high.
We thank our Graduates for returning to Glennie to attend the Scholars’ Assembly and wish them well in their studies in 2021.
