Alternative Education… is this something you have chosen for your child? I want to hear from you…

It is something I have chosen…definitely. Entrepreneurial thinking cannot be fostered in the current mainstream school environment as it is at the moment, so I’ve opted for a different path. Daughter is in year 6 now, and all is going very well… Which leads me to “Legacy” time… At her school, the grade 6 children decide what they would like to leave for the school community once they are on their way to bigger and better adventures in secondary school (hard to believe it’s happening already, where did that time go!)
