Student Initiative

I'm continually amazed (in a really positive way) by the level of initiative shown by so many of our students. Our students care. They care about each other, they care about the local environment and they care about the world.

It's natural then to expect that change should occur in education and that it should continually reshape the way that education is delivered.
