Assembly Item - Always Try Your Best

During Friday's athletics sports I was inspired by our students and staff. This event was a wonderful chance for our students to show their talents and passion for achieving and striving to be their best. I was also impressed with how well our students supported one another during the events. There is nothing quite like an entire school cheering each other on!

Below are some photos of Burnham School students trying their best to achieve during our athletics sports:

This led me to wondering, what is the relationship between how hard you try for something, and the chances you have for achieving it? I did a web search and found some really useful quotes about the importance of trying your best and being motivated. Here is a quote for you to consider, please put your own ideas as comments to this post below:
"Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is."  by Vince Lombardi from 

What does this mean for your learning and how can you use this to help you?
