Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

~ John Dewey

Our simple educational philosphy: we learn as we live and we celebrate what we learn!

Plant for the Planet

Today, we pledged to plant trees in October. We hope you will too. Forests cover 30 percent of the planet. Trees absorb carbon dioxide. It is estimated that the world’s forests store 283 Gigatonnes of carbon in their biomass alone, and carbon stored in forest biomass, deadwood, litter and soil together is roughly 50 percent more than the carbon in the atmosphere. But, carbon in forest biomass is rapidly decreasing. The loss of natural forests around the world contributes more to global emissions, and consequently global warming, each year than the transport sector. Deforestation continues at an alarming rate of about 13 million hectares per year. Curbing deforestation is a very effective way to reduce emissions. Other solutions include increased energy efficiency, reduced energy demand, better transport and the use of green energy. Play a part in reducing global warming. Plant some trees this fall.
