Focus on the positive
THE Telegraph congratulates all those school students who have been a part of the many award ceremonies that have taken place this year.
Today we read about the worthy achievements at one of our area's grammar schools.
Well done to all the young people, who will no doubt go on to succeed. Well done too, to the many others we have featured in the past weeks and congratulations to the schools.
To help young people to achieve their full potential in life, it is the responsibility of all of our adult society to celebrate their achievements just a little bit more than perhaps we do currently.

And achievement should not just be measured on the academic scale.
Young people are about so much more than the exams they pass, although they do need to recognise that exams are, more often than not, a necessary part of a successful life and career.
But success can be measured on other scales – the ability to entertain, to be happy and to achieve in the sporting or creative arena.
Believe and exploit the attributes each individual child has and that young adult will grow into a person with confidence and an ability to live their life to the full.
If you focus on the negative, then you risk damaging their confidence and ruining or blocking their chances of success.
