Nobody’s Perfect

This week in assembly we were thinking about ‘perfection’ and how people strive to achieve this. The children learned that while you might find the perfect car, or have the perfect home and maybe even, perfect teeth, there is no such thing as the perfect person. Sometimes it is hard for children (grown-ups too) to appreciate that nobody is perfect and they can be hard on themselves when they make mistakes. We talked about how everyone makes mistakes and it is the progress you are making when you are improving and getting better at things which is most important. One saying particularly sums this up: strive for progress and not perfection.
