“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out” This week, an assembly was conducted by learners of Grade 4 on one of the most important relationships in our lives that we build ourselves – FRIENDSHIP! The importance and worth of a TRUE FRIEND were highlighted by their spectacular performance on stage sketching the journey of an average child, who struggled with academics and other activities, taking a toll on his emotional well-being and, how after being scaffolded and guided by his friend inspired him to improve and sail through smoothly. A friend’s belief helps us to realise the inner potential bringing out the best in us and help us ACHIEVE ANYTHING! It was an enthralling experience for us to carry out the portrayal of such an important relationship. The assembly was concluded with the following poem: Our friendship is strong, it doesn’t need a test You see the good in me and bring out the best You found me in the shallows and embraced my flaws You encouraged my abilities and greeted them with applause This is a relation that I did not have by birth Yet I feel closer to you than on anyone on this earth You read my mind and understand my fears You laugh with me and wipe my tears I could not have asked for a better friend than you Your heart is as pure as a winter morning’s dew I pray to god to give you all the happiness in the world And I will be there to share it with you.
