A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents and Students,

Probably the most difficult task for a leader (I view you as the leader of your home and family) is to persuade others to follow. It can only be possible if you inspire your followers by setting a good example. When the going gets tough, they look up to you and see how you react to the situation. If you handle it well, they will follow you. As a leader you should think positive. This positive approach should be visible through your actions. Stay calm under pressure and keep the motivational level up. As John Quincy Adams puts it, "If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader." I have found that simple things can sometimes produce big dividends for inspiring others. 

In our school, I view our student council members as our leaders. This week our school elected 13 students to serve on our council. It is my hope that they will learn an important component of leadership – inspiring others. Please see our latest newsletter for a list of recently elected students who will serve on student council this year. Congratulations to each of you!

Your proud GCE Principal,

Todd Hearne
