Turned Tables

One of the absolute highlights for me in these last few weeks has been a visit from three of my ex-students. I had taught them for 2-3 years from Year 7 and 8. Now, they are driving or going for their license, finishing high school or pursuing further education.
Their visit just really impressed Libs and I. They had a real ownership with their beliefs and faith indicating they are really thinking about things. They inspired us and left us encouraged. It is a humbling experience when you spend a lot of time with kids, trying to encourage them and inspire them in their development, and years later they return it in such a real way. I end up being the one that benefits from their generosity, their convictions and their encouragement. This is in spite of me being sure I would have given them all detentions at least once during their lifetime. Oh well…
