Enthusiasm and Perseverance Pays Off
Davenies’ Language of Learning shines through as Ishaan’s enthusiasm and perseverance achieves him the highest rank in karate – the black belt.
Joining his sister and father, Isaan (Year 5) obtained his black belt after six years of dedication, commitment and perseverance. Karate is an un-armed martial art discipline that stresses the importance of mental attitude, courtesy and a ranking system. Ishaan was inspired by Shihan Gursharan Sahota, who supported and motivating him throughout, encouraging Ishaan that he could do what he put his mind to. Davenies’ own Language of Learning encourages the boys to be Enthusiastic, Curious, Courageous, Persevering and Reflective, all of which Ishaan has exemplified in his ambition to delve more deeply into karate to achieve the highest level. Congratulations!
