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!)
Well… following on from this theme, a couple of parents and I have decided we too would like to contribute a Legacy of sorts…
And for it to take the form of a book of tales and tips, containing thoughts, stories and insights from far and wide, about the education we entered into… being that of an alternative variety.
We’ve decided also to open it up to reach a much wider audience than just our community. The reason for that is so we can bring together all that is the good, the bad and the ugly about what we’ve done, and/or what we’re about to do. We will be including current and past pupils, parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles and the budgie if need be! Anyone really who has been touched by this journey, from all walks of life, all ages, all connections…
So… here’s you can help…
Make yourself a cuppa (or anything else that takes your fancy) and sit in front of the computer, in front of this blog post.
Then click on (or copy and paste into your browser) this link
and approx 15 minutes later, all will be done!
Then I ask you please, to forward this information to all you know who have been touched by the choice of alternative education.
Please invite them to do the same.
The result will be that you, and those near and dear to you, have contributed to what we hope will be the “Legacy” piece that remains long after we’ve gone. And will over time become a resource that others following will be able to use to guide their way….
Any questions, comments, suggested names even!…
all graciously received.
The survey will be available electronically for 4 weeks, with the option to extend should we need/want to. If paper copies are required, feel free to print out the survey and once completed, pop in an envelope and email me at email@example.com for address details.
We look forward to your contribution already…
Thanks in advance!
