We were musing on the virtues of enthusiasm. Without enthusiasm a task can indeed be hard work. An enthusiastic being can keep moral high when the going gets tedious. It can help see a job through to conclusion, even when the odds are stacked against you getting it finished. And it doesn't need a scholar to provide it - there are no basic grades necessary. To curb that keenness would be cruel - perhaps channel it towards an end result - but not to stem it totally. The cockerels and pullets are learning rapidly and their worldly and acclaimed headmaster Sir Amour is setting them new challenges and new goals each day, inspiring them to stretch themselves further and further.
Some will go on to do great things and be leaders in their field. And others will be the strength and encouragement behind them. It takes all capabilities and all different characters in a team - each one as important and special as the next, right down to the littlest Sebright - she has her place too. They wait excitedly for the wire gate to open and run home to tell us all about their day. They are eager, full of ideas and most importantly, enthusiasm. Gordon, Sylvia and friends xxx
Hello! My name is Gordon and I am a Gold Sebright and my best friend is Sylvia. She is a Silver Sebright. We live with our foster parents on a small farm in the country. We thought that we would put our take on life and what we get up to through the year into a diary for you. All the characters are real and the events are a true record, interpreted with a modicum of poetic licence. We hope you enjoy it. Love Gordon and Sylvia
