Mr Johnson learning to ride a unicycle - Video 5 from Redlands College on Vimeo.

During this term, our Junior School is exploring the virtues and characteristics of the Fruit of the Spirit from Gal 5:22-23 and 2 Peter 1:5-7. One of these characteristics from 2 Peter 1:6 is perseverance.
 
Mr Johnson accepted an offer from Mrs Farley to practice perseverance by learning to ride a unicycle again after a break of 23 years. Each week, Mr Johnson has been recording a brief video of learning to ride a unicycle and sharing it with Junior School on the Monday assembly. Many students from Junior School have been sharing tips and suggestions on how to ride a unicycle, as well as examples of their own perseverance.
 
Staff are speaking with students about perseverance and developing a growth mindset as one of the keys to developing our gifts and abilities.
 
Mr Johnson has been challenged to develop his ability to the point where he can ride the unicycle into Junior Assembly on the last Monday of Term, 11 September.
