361° the beginning of a new revolution

School council of 2019/2020 will be adopting the motivation ideal:  361° the beginning of a new revolution.

360°  degrees completes a circle and represents a whole, which repeats itself, never changing it’s tiresome ways and continually doing the same thing while expecting a different outcome.

The additional 1° pioneers a new revolution, evoking change and new beginnings. It signifies the next level in life and going beyond your expectations. 361° is spiralling out of the norm and attempting something different.

361° defines something as incomplete whilst constantly finding techniques to better oneself. It foresees every learning experience as an opportunity to surpass the next level and be an improved version of yourself.

This ideal draws on the past and constantly pushes you out of your comfort zone. This is similar to 212°  being the extra degree and going the extra mile as it shows tenacity in the face of adversity.

School council aims to start a new revolution in reviving all aspects of a Norman Henshilwood learner be it academics, culture, sport, service and the Normies pride through discipline.

 

The School Council are continuing the Linked-in-Learner Initiative in 2019

  1. Linked-in-learner [LiL]: this leadership structure allows classes that do not have RCL reps to have LIL’s who will be responsible for plugging in, at the very local level, school-based decisions. LiL’s serve as a link between decisions needing to be taken and final decisions made.
