However, it’s been great to get it up and going again and have everybody’s efforts rewarded with the public show....

As parents and educators, we intrinsically believe that reading is key to educational success.. It is a truism that academic success correlates with those who are regular, if not avid, readers. Such reading goes beyond the mechanics of functional literacy, however, instead reflecting a deep immersion in literature, which, in turn, fosters an understanding of how language, and the texts it creates, function....

The Pontiff said we lived in an "atmosphere polluted by too much verbal violence" which was "amplified by the internet". If you spend a few minutes on any social ...

Although I was trying to hide it, I was a nervous wreck – a new school meant new teachers, new friends, a new campus to navigate, older students - how could he not be nervous? In the hope that he’d open up about some perhaps ...

“(My children) know the price of everything and the value of nothing.” - Rod Stewart There was a lively discussion at work the other day between a mother who doesn’t give her kids any pocket money because she believes they should do chores as part of a household.
