Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
This week we have been given two excellent examples of commitment, courage and determination with Richie McCaw (All Blacks Captain) and Casey Kopua (Silver Ferns Captain – netball).
Richie McCaw is now the most capped rugby captain and the most capped player of test rugby of all time.
This is a huge achievement in the rugby world. McCaw has met a number of challenges on the way but through determination and commitment he has reached an amazing milestone.
Casey Kopua has also shown commitment, determination and especially courage coming back from a severe injury, to again play at the top of her field.
It was lovely to see the children displaying commitment and determination at the sports exchange with St Joseph’s on Thursday and again at netball on Saturday.
We might not all reach such high honours as Richie and Casey, but if we show these same attributes we will have more chance of reaching our potential in whatever we are trying to achieve.
Have a great week.
