全球瘋傳英國小學校長給畢業生的一封信:http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-lancashire-2831... find enclosed your end of KS2 test results. We are very proud of you as you demonstrated huge amounts of commitment and tried your very best during this tricky week.However, we are concerned that these tests do not always assess all of what it is that make each of you special and unique. The people who create these tests and score them do not know each of you... the way your teachers do, the way I hope to, and certainly not the way your families do.They do not know that many of you speak two languages. They do not know that you can play a musical instrument or that you can dance or paint a picture.They do not know that your friends count on you to be there for them or that your laughter can brighten the dreariest day. They do not know that you write poetry or songs, play or participate in sports, wonder about the future, or that sometimes you take care of your little brother or sister after school.They do not know that you have travelled to a really neat place or that you know how to tell a great story or that you really love spending time with special family members and friends.They do not know that you can be trustworthy, kind or thoughtful, and that you try, every day, to be your very best... the scores you get will tell you something, but they will not tell you everything.So enjoy your results and be very proud of these but remember there are many ways of being smart.

Our Dear Beth,
Thank you for sharing this inspiring letter.
The message delivered is really positive and encouraging. I think this is even more suitable if it is given to the students in the Eastern world where the traditional style of teaching tends to be mechanical.
I think we appreciate the school principal who wrote this letter to the graduates. It is just like the final lesson given by the "teacher-in-chief" where the lesson is a practical one with enlightening ideas.
As an adult, we all realize the fact that top scores do not mean everything. To be an "effective" person, we must be quite all-round. This letter evokes resonance among readers especially for adults. Primary school graduates, as the recipients of the letter, may not be mature enough to "feel" what was written completely, yet those words would be very valuable to them if they keep them in mind in the future.
With these meaningful and inspiring words, hopefully the students will continue to enjoy and treasure the days they play, study, do whatever which occupies their childhood. They should get an important message about living. They should have a good attitude towards their lives.
"Test scores do not matter too much, your attitude does!"
Thank you for sharing.
