Successful school experience – all about connections

Editor,

School learning is about the connections between kids getting together and teaching each other.

When a teacher asks a question all kids have their own different answer to tell.

I’ve been learning at Kinnaird Elementary for seven years, and I’ve had the most extraordinary time journey.

I’ve learned how to make friends, how to listen, how to be patient and be someone who is ready to make good decisions – not just for me, but for my friends and family, too.

Of course I’ve learned subjects of all kinds, but school is meant to help us face our fears and not run away from them..

My school family has given me a gift and that gift is learning... how to grow and be a respectful human being.
