 Happiness cannot be found
when you seek it for yourself
but when you give it to others,
it will find its way back to you
that’s the mystery of happiness
it grows when shared.

ScrollStudent of the Week.

William W. 3W was awarded this certificate for being an independent thinker. While on the playground at lunch time, he noticed lots of litter. Unprompted, he went round collecting litter that had blown into the playground and putting it in the bin. Not only was he taking responsibility for making the playground a more pleasant place to play, he did so without being asked.  We must all thank William for his efforts.
