Never see a need without doing something about it

Blessed Mary MacKillop (1842 -1909)

Living means perpetually searching for meaning. Schools need to be places that keep this search alive.

Brooks and Brooks: 1999:12, Murdoch et al

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Robert M. Hutchins

Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and diligence.

Abigail Adams

The aim of education is the knowledge, not of facts, but of values.

William S. Burroughs

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.

Henry David Thoreau
