Christine: What a fantastic week we’ve had! The children arrived on Wednesday eager to see their friends, share details about their winter break and ready to learn. Outdoor Work has been particularly magnificent; we’ve had junior reporters and camera people documenting the zip-line construction which took three days to engineer, build, redesign and use. The very best part of this collective cooperation was this —every single child was involved. The social and emotional maturity needed to work on an intense project in a large group is huge. Just think about your own work or social situations . . . This afternoon, we saw the same collective cooperation, respect, kindness and initiative during Free Choice, and, once again, every single child was involved. This week has been priceless.
