The Pupil's Pledge
I am a member of the world family.
I am related to those who stand next to me...
By the air we breathe...
By the light we share...
By the hope we have for a better world.
I have a responsibility to give... to receive,
To be open, tolerant, free.
I have inherited this world from those who have lived before.
I occupy space and time for only a few short years.
I hold this world in trust for those who will follow.
My life,-with others,- can help fashion this world
Towards peace rather than strife...
Hope, rather than despair...
Freedom rather than slavery.
I, with those around me,
Can make the unity of humanity a living thing.
I will plan my pathway towards success.
I will not be afraid, because I am unique...
I am confident and courageous.
And greatness lies within me.
As I develop my full potential,
I will always remember to show loving concern for those around me.
The world is waiting for me.
By reaching out and getting involved,
I will make a difference!
I pledge my willing spirit to this thought.
Let us do this together.
