“A person is a fool to become a writer. His only compensation is absolute freedom. He has no master except his own soul, and that, I am sure, is why he does it” – Roald Dahl
It’s not a new idea in the educational sector that no two children are the same, and as such, neither is their style of learning. To use the quote often attributed to Albert Einstein:
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish upon on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid”.
The Renaissance Awards were back again for the second year,it took place on the 20th October at The Deck in the National Theatre in London. It is a special event to celebrate top performing primary and secondary schools across the UK – Including the Republic of Ireland this year! Joining the awards this year are two new categories - Most Creative Celebration of Reading and Project Manager/Team of the Year. In dedication to the late co-founder, there is also a Terry Paul award, which is given to someone who is driven and passionate about accelerating learning and inspires fellow educators with their enthusiasm.
