Danni…what can I say! I have just read the comments on facebook…
What you achieved with our girls yesterday was remarkable. It is a message that we could not achieve in two years!! I really want to thank you.
Being a new (relatively young) Principal in a girls school, yesterday really gave me a good opportunity to reflect on my own wishes for our students. I love being a Teacher and a Principal and I really love Clonard and each of the students that I have been blessed with in caring for. Watching our students respond to you was an amazing experience.
Clonard is a truly special place. I am very proud of our girls. It was an absolute privilege to sit through all of your sessions finding myself captivated by every moment. What I really couldn’t get over at the end was the line of girls that just wanted to hug you and say thanks. Talk about special!!!
A number of the teachers there yesterday came up to me and said how much they had learnt. It’s true…you can teach a teacher!!!
I feel that your powerful message will stay with these students for their journey through Clonard. I know it will be something that I will refer back to when the going gets tough.
I feel privileged to have met you, listened to you and learnt from you. I do know now what Jemma and Mel (our two Yr 11 girls who attended the Insight Conference) were talking about!!!
Thank you and I hope that we can have you back in 2011.
