Watching the past times brought back to life, watching the kids dressed up like in the old times... I wonder who loved learning more...
Is going to school nowadays a privilege or burden? Is it a joy or a modern torture?
Do we cherish the gift of learning or not?
School is so much more than just a school. It is a box of knowledge, mystery, excitement, interesting stories that can help us grow, full of teachers as role models, school-friends as social network to challenge our emotions and believes, pleasant or unpleasant environment, noisy and calming moments, freedom and limitations.
School is so much more than it was years ago, but we get stuck focusing on little things and get lost before noticing how many oportunities we can find in school for learning and experiencing great lessons for life.
How about if we start this school-year differently? Let's step back, learn from the past and look at the school from a distance to see the whole picture, to see the greater meaning of school - all of us: the kids, the teachers and the parents.
Enjoy the journey and keep calm!
