Valentines Day

This weekend sees the annual out pouring of love and affection that is St Valentine’s Day. We will exchange cards (if we are lucky) and might buy and give some chocolates or flowers and might even have a romantic meal for two. How lovely.

Our St Valentine’s festival is a day where our interpretation of “love” is of the romantic kind, but of course there are many ways of exhibiting love that do not involve flowers and cards! My upbringing, in a church-going family, made it clear to me that a way I could exhibit love every day was through service to others and that this type of love was probably more important than the transient, passing romantic love.

Service to others is what drives everyone who works in our school community. Caring for and looking after all of the young people who cross our threshold every morning is why we get out of bed. Serving you and your children is our raison d’être.

On Saturday, enjoy the festival of romantic love that our culture celebrates. Notice your loved ones. Adore them. And then for the other 364 days of the year, show them how much you love them by offering your service, by caring, by sacrificing your needs to meet the needs of others. For therein lies true love.
