Good morning, and it is with great pleasure that I welcome you here today.

The Mirrors Programme began in 2007 and since then the organization has worked with more than 2000 adults and almost 750 youth. The Programme has provided each individual the opportunity to transform their lives and live beyond their limitations. Participants have been encouraged and supported in accomplishing their goals. Today you will hear from some of those voices, as Mirrors has themed this years' event 'Voices of the Community, transforming our community one person at a time".

Good Morning Everyone,

As you all know, next week Tuesday marks the commencement of the 2014/2015 academic school year for each of you.

So this morning I would like to welcome you to the 2014 new teacher orientation session which is designed to get you off to a great start and support your teaching experience this year.

Firstly, I should admit that it's been almost 35 years since I've been in front of a class as a teacher. I still remember some of the challenges and rewards of being in the classroom and working with students.
