Learning for life

In today's world, everyone needs a good education to make a decent living and to be a good citizen. But beyond the practical reasons for getting a good education, there is also a more basic, human joy in learning for its own sake. We are all born to learn; it's a basic part of human nature.

That's why it's so important that we do all we can to make sure our children enjoy school, and feel rewarded and encouraged when they work hard at learning. Children need to know their families care about their education and have high expectations for them.
