Farley: It was done out of love
As the end of his tenure at the Graydon Sealy Secondary School draws closer, retiring principal Matthew Farley said his efforts at the school, though not popular with all, were because he loved the children.
While expressing his gratitude to everyone attending a farewell function at the school yesterday, Farley told the students that as he left the school it did not matter who the new principal was, but how they respond and what the school believed in.
Further to that he told them that as they went on to the various stages in life, a lot of what they are taught that they did not like and agreed with, it would come out from within you.
“One of these days the same standards that you oppose, you will enforce; whether you are a teacher, a parent or whatever you become,” Farley said.
