Persistence is the firm determination to continue striving towards a goal, despite obstacles, setbacks, or challenges. It is the driving force that propels our young people to overcome adversity and achieve remarkable deeds. Those who embody persistence understand that success rarely comes easily or quickly. They possess a determined spirit that keeps them focused and motivated, even when faced with seemingly challenging hurdles.

Persistent young people exhibit resilience in the face of failure. They view setbacks as valuable learning opportunities and refuse to be discouraged. Instead, they adjust their strategies, learn from their mistakes, and persevere towards their objectives. They understand that progress often involves taking small steps forward, even in the face of setbacks. Persistence is an essential quality in the personal endeavours of our students. It enables them to push through self-doubt, rejection, and criticism, allowing them to reach new heights and exceed their own expectations. It breeds innovation, as persistent young people continue to explore new possibilities and alternative approaches, until they find success.

We ask all our parents and caregivers to encourage our young people to be persistent in their approach. We as teachers continue to promote persistence among our students by role modelling this quality as it is the fuel that drives them to surpass their limitations and conquer the impossible.

With trust in the direction of the Lord and persistence as our guiding principle, we can weather storms, embrace challenges, and ultimately achieve aspirations.
