We liked this quote from a teacher/ writer. We thought it summed up so much of what we would aspire to and so much of what our parents alluded to in their feedback last summer.
‘We want our pupils to grow into ‘Philosopher Kids’, who are curious to know and to question; who can lead as well as follow; who like to feel, to think; who are notable for their eloquence and willingness to take part in the big conversation of life. We want them to engage thoughtfully in dialogue and argument; to appreciate and make beautiful things; to be confident grappling with difficult ideas; to appreciate quiet reflection and contemplation. We want them to be caring and compassionate- able to flourish both as individuals and contribute actively to the flourishing of those around them.’
