Dear Parents and Caregivers I hope you and your family have remained safe and dry…
To live by choice not by chance;
To make changes not excuses;
To be motivated, not manipulated;
To be useful, not used;
To excel, not compete;
I choose self-esteem; not self-pity;
I choose to listen to my inner voice
Not the random opinion of others.
The higher you climb, the more you see.
The more you see, the less you know
The less you know, the more you learn
The more you learn, the higher you climb
The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high
And we miss it, but that it is too low, and we reach it.
Congratulations TJ Devery (11LE) Rugby League
