Thoughts turned this morning to Holocaust Memorial Day which is on the 27th January every year.  That's a Saturday this year but we'll still mark it in school.

I was so impressed to day with everyone I spoke to about it.  Everyone wanted to embrace it and do something about it - Mrs Wood and Mr Torpey in Humanities, Miss Sarson in English and Bridie in Year 12!  

The theme this year is the Power of Words - something that Mrs Gregg touched upon in 6th Form assembly yesterday.  The language we use is powerful.  I'm sure you'll have heard the phrase "the pen is mightier than the sword" but about 2,400 years ago, a Greek playwright by the name of Eurypides used the phrase "the tongue is mightier than the blade!"  It's worth thinking about those words that stick with us.  Sometimes, unkind words may have been spoken by someone in haste and anger but they can stay rooted in us and hold us back if we give in to them.  On the other hand, they can motivate us!

Kinder and encouraging words also stick with us.  Simple words like "I love you" can transform our whole being.  So this coming weekend and week, let's focus on the power of words using words which encourage!
