If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight.

If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.

If a child lives with encouragement, he learns to have confidence.

If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate.

We recall the words of Bishop W. Walsh at our Centenary Mass when he said:

No place is perfect, no person is perfect, no school is perfect, and so we recognise our frailty.
