It seems, in our society, that the only measure of educational success we can understand is based on academic testing – SATS, GCSEs, targets for this and that and the other.
In the Live Grow Nourish Create home “school”, we think of educational success rather differently. In a time period that has seen us learning about kindness, and about sanitation, this letter and accompanying sentiment from Waif tells me that something here is working:
Waif has chosen to send £10 of his saved-up pocket money to a charity that helps provide toilets to people in developing countries. I am proud of him, and glad that he is learning to be compassionate and generous.
