Learning is Light

Learning is Light

One of the more worthy gifts I received this Christmas was from my father, a charity donation on my behalf to enable some of the 600,000 Syrian refugee children currently residing in camps in Jordan to have access to education.

In the accompanying charity card, one line of text struck me in particular. It was a quote from a mother talking of the impact that education had on her children, “I was so happy because my children were happy. Learning is light.”

‘Learning is light.’ In the crazy world we live in, of Trump, inequality and social media self-absorption, the light of learning is needed more than ever. We as a staff are proud of the amazing responsibility and privilege that we have in providing that light to all our students.

Wishing you a Happy New Year
