National Junior Society Inductions:

Member, Annaka Stuaring wrote this original poem to commemorate the event:
Caring for someone,
However difficult it is.
Respect toward others.
Acting with the knowledge every
Choice you make has an effect on
Those around you.
Endlessly wondering how to
Recreate the world.
Letting others take over,
Even if you don’t want to.
Accommodating those who need help,
Dealing with problems that arise.
Eagerly taking any chance to learn.
