Inspiration, Vocation, Dedication
This is only interesting if you have kids I know, but I cannot believe how ill I already feel about my kids’ education (age 6, 4 and 1). With Olly, a summer baby boy (if you have the chance folks, avoid this combination), I really want to keep him interested in school, despite being nearly a year younger than many in his class (believe me the difference between a seven year old girl and a six year old boy is phenomenal). So the key for me is inspiration. I think that if you are inspired then you apply yourself more, and if you are really lucky you can even be inspired vocationally. So I am looking for a way in which I can give my kids access to inspiring, vocationally dedicated people who can give them insights into the possibilities for their future. Wouldn’t it be great if during the course of their school life they could meet and really get to know scientists, sportsmen, artists, writers, doctors, gardeners, chefs, lawyers, deep sea divers, acrobats and model village makers. In fact anyone who loves what they do. If I could have met as a child even a few of the interesting people I have met since I’ve grown up, I am sure it would have opened up the world to me, given me more of an idea what to do with my life, and encouraged me to follow my own dreams as well.
