Do not confine children to your own learning,
for they were born in another time. - Chinese
proverb
To put things into context
Our childrenare the latest model of human
being. Looking at the world of children is not
looking backward at our own past its looking
ahead. They are our evolutionary future. -
Rushkoff (1999) Playing the Future. p.4

Recent research suggests that most variance in
performance between students is actually
explained by differences between classes, rather
that schools. The suggestion is that it is
teachers, not schools, that make the difference
in student learning. Dr. Wayne Sawyer. UWS
Research on HSC Successes (2002)

Role Models Men of Character Men Women of Character What is Character?
An effective classroom is based on the
development of a positive relationship between
teacher and students. As the majority of
teachers are from a previous generation, it is
essential that they develop an awareness towards
the values and aspirations of the generation that
they attempt to teach.
