Guidance

Here we are again at the beginning of another school year.  Often we assume that the same old month, filled with the same old things, couldn’t surprise us if it tried.  For myself, I will not only be doing Guidance Counselling, but I will also be teaching Drama 10 in semester one which is a new course at LSK.  For the second semester I will be teaching another new course at LSK – Psychology 12.

 Also, it is a pleasure to welcome back students who had transferred schools and are now back at LSK, as well as some totally new students.  As well, let’s not forget any of our students.  Let’s look at this school year as an adventure, an exercising in bonding, and a chance to learn.  Surprise me, September!

It’s finally here – the month of June. It usually inspires thoughts of love, marriage, the beginning of summer and, of course, to graduates far and wide, it means you have completed another step in your educational journey. 

This is the month we see the bees working as hard as, well.... bees. Do we see as many as we used to? No, we do not and the reason why is unknown. We are encouraged to plant bee flower gardens to help maintain the population. The picture says the bee is not afraid or angry that all her honey can be stolen. Why? Because no one can ever steal her art of honey making. Be like the bee…know that no one can ever take away your abilities, talents and education. But, if you do not use them then they will be wasted for yourself and others. 

“Happy Graduation” to all Grads. I will miss you but I also envy you. You have your whole life ahead of you. Be positive and rock the world! 

Have you seen the calendar lately?  It’s May already! It seems as if the school year has barely begun, it’s gone so fast.  I contribute that to the many opportunities for humour during our school day. When I first came to LSK I had a difficult time being “laughed at” as, in the non-Native lifestyle, one only laughed at jokes.  Am I ever glad I came here and was re-educated in this.  I can laugh at myself now and not in a negative way.  Laughter makes a, sometimes, bad day turn itself around and become a good day.  So thank you Indian Brook, L’nu Sipuk Kina’muokuom, and the many friends I have made here for teaching me that, indeed, a day without laughter is a day wasted.

What a beautiful message to read at any time, but especially as the spring month of April approaches. The rivers will be flowing and the grass growing very soon but even when they are frozen under a coat of snow, their promise is still there.  It is our responsibility to make sure that we care for Mother Earth for it is she that cares for and nurtures us.  Be kind to each other and remember that we are all in this together.
