For us at the Knowledge Public School, education is not merely the acquisition of knowledge and skills required to prepare one for life. Rather it is the entire process of living and engaging with life, of experiencing its uniqueness, diversity and inter-connectedness, of being moved by beauty, of asking thought-provoking questions, of the search for answers and the fearless urge to bring about change when required.
"It was wonderful to work with you all in the planning, preparation and successful implementation of the Foyle View Work Experience. It made our work very easy, the pupils and the parents were very happy and relaxed to let their children go to work experience"
"I would like to thank you most sincerely for your contribution to our Careers Day. The pupils found the talks most informative and relevant to life beyond post-primary education."
"Working for Principal Teachers has been very rewarding. Having just moved into the North Yorkshire area, and working as a supply teacher for the first time, I found staff very supportive. When I wanted to teach a different age group to secondary, they helped me gradually gain confidence in teaching primary school children; I feel I can trust them to find the right sort of job for me."
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
People are logical, unreasonable and self centered. Love them any way.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.
