A Message to Teachers & Parents: What School is Really About


We need students who take responsibility and who are completely accountable for their actions; students who find solutions to problems which may seem insurmountable to the average person. We need students with grit.

We need to develop students with tenacity and the willingness to persevere when the going gets tough because difficulty is one thing which we can predict they will encounter.

We need to nurture students who care about other people; students who treat others with kindness and compassion; students who are willing to help others despite the fact that it may mean sacrifice on their own part.

(Russell Hardy: Principal at Crawford College Lonehill)
