  1. Thoughts for the New Year…

    In preparation for a new term, here are a couple of quotes attributed to Socrates to get you thinking:

    “I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.”

    “Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”

    And, our favourite, this one from Confucius:

    “If your plan is for one year, plant rice. If your plan is for ten years, plant trees. If your plan is for 100 years, educate children.”

    Happy New Year!
