My Leaving Words for the Class of 2016…

Every year I have begun writing something new for our year 6 Leaver’s Service.  What I write usually has a theme that runs through it which has been prevalent throughout the year during our collective worship sessions.  Key this year has been the idea of being extraordinary.  So here are my final words this year for our class of 2016…..

My Leaving Words for the Class of 2016

Some say to be extraordinary you need to achieve the impossible.

But what is this – this impossible?

For us, there are no limits,

All ceilings can be broken through; success is what you make of it,

Obstacles only slow us down, so what is this impossible you speak of?

To be extraordinary….

You need to be unique,

Standing apart from the crowd

A diamond amongst the unpolished jewels.

To be extraordinary…

You need to be brave,

Unafraid when challenge stirs,

Poised and ready to speak out for those with no voice.

To be extraordinary…

You need to be a leader

Honesty and integrity at the heart

Even marching alone, when you know,

it is the right thing to do.

Always be honest…

Doing the right thing…

Even when it is the most difficult….

Trust that God will show you the way..

This is extraordinary…

This is you…

To be extraordinary

You need to leave your mark on the world….

 

So I ask you,

What will your mark be?

Will you be extraordinary?
