Reflections from the Woolf Fisher Award 2008

Principal’s Perspective 07/11/08
Good schools depend on partnerships. Certainly, partnerships between teachers and families, but, particularly, learning partnerships between teachers and students...
Teachers Are Doing It 05/08/2008
One overriding impression in my travels has been that in these times teachers take very seriously their responsibilities as educators. Many have an almost messianic view of the part teachers have to play in fostering international understanding and goodwill. For them education is very much about developing international citizens able to communicate beyond cultural borders.
