To open a school sports event in 1881

A Dominican priest by the name of Henri Didon said “Citius, Altius, Fortius”, meaning Educational Success “Faster, Higher, Stronger”. The words resonated with students and guests alike, so much so that it was adopted by the Olympic Games as their official motto. Having said that the words do not begin and end with just sport; in essence, the words capture moral, spiritual and educational elements too… simple words with such depth.

But with hard work, with belief, with confidence and trust in yourself and those around you, there are no limits”. Educators appreciate “there will be mistakes”, but increasingly the media, government bodies, and parents are less forgiving. The important thing is to learn from the mistake and focus less on apportioning blame. The blame game at its core is a deconstructive pursuit when we should be focusing on building and supporting Educational Success.

Arguably the philosophy of the greatest sporting event in the world began at a simple school event. Notice that “winning” is not mentioned, the most important thing is to do your very best, to improve, to always strive for excellence. At its core, this is what every school should be striving to do. Far too often these days we see educators reluctant to push, with pressures from government bodies, parents, and media leading educators to a policy of detachment.

Schools play a pivotal role in shaping and developing tomorrow’s leaders

Yet how effective are those leaders going to be if just passing is enough? We live in a world that is diverse and whose boundaries are being eroded into what can be described as a global village. Workforces are highly mobile and some of them are very hungry for success. We run the risk of creating a generation of marginalised young people unable to secure jobs if we do not push for the very best out of every single one of our students today.

Sport and a passion for the outdoors have seen the rise of many great athletes, environmentalists, event organisers, photojournalists, physiotherapists, and teachers to name but a few.

Certainly, there should always be accountability and people that take responsibility Educational Success

for mistakes, but the focus has a tendency to stop there. To truly embody “Citius, Altius, Fortius”, students, educators, parents,

government bodies and the media need to work together positively to make hard work pay off. There are no shortcuts.
