There are one hundred chairs…

There are one hundred chairs set out. Each has a white cross on the back representing 170 000 lives lost per chair. On each seat is the name of a soldier who fell; British, Commonwealth and German. Details of their lives; their loved ones and where they lived as well as when they died.
Sobering thoughts as we sat to watch, ‘They Shall Not Grow Old.’

“As we infuse technology further…

“As we infuse technology further into students’ lives, we must hold tight to the fact that personal relationships, face-to-face interactions, and quiet reflection will always be essential to a happy life—and that the convenience and excitement of technology should enhance—but never outweigh—the value of authentic human experiences.”
