Hector’s Blog – Week Beginning 11th Feb 2019
Shoes! I know all there is to know about them. As the school pet living in the office I see all sorts of shoes coming past me every day. Some shoes move slowly. Others dash past. I can hear you asking me about my favourite. Well, I’ve decided to tell you.
My favourite type of shoe is the shoe that stops. Some say “Sawubona Hector.” Sawubona is the Zulu greeting which can be translated into “I see you.” I heard the children talking about it and I was intrigued to find out more. So I did some reading (I am a school tortoise after all). Sawubona also means I see you and I have regard for you. Having regard for someone is seeing them as people who need respect and dignity; it is seeing them with humanity.
The children in assembly spoke about this very eloquently. They said we need to see the kindness, love and trust in others.
Now, I will end with saying that some shoes might need a good polish!
Hector’s Blog – Week Beginning 17th July 2017
I may be small, I may not get out around the school as much as I would like but I am often visited by children and adults and so I know what’s happening around the school. I will be blogging each week and I do hope you can come and have a read about all the amazing learning and other experiences happening at All Saints’.
I have to apologise for not writing my blog for some time!! It’s been a bit hot to do much more than eat and snooze!
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and have lots of great adventures. I look forward to hearing all about it when you come back to school in September.
I know some of you will be going to new schools and so I won’t see all of you then, but I just want to wish you all a very, very happy holiday.
Love from Hector
