Message from our Deputy Head of Secondary

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire”

I was reminded of the quote above (often attributed to W.B. Yeats, but probably originally from Plutarch) this week whilst speaking to some of the groups of secondary students who have been back at school. Their enthusiasm and energy were palpable. They wanted to be in school, not just to catch up with friends who they have undoubtedly been missing, but because they wanted to get back into hands on, practical learning. Their enthusiasm is great, and several teaching colleagues commented on how good it was to have them in school and to be making these steps back to ‘normality’. 

One of my jobs is interviewing potential new students in years 10 and 11 and I often get asked questions about what the school is like, particularly at present when the interviews are virtual. It is always a pleasure to be able to describe our student body – motivated to learn, interested in the world around them and engaging with it, up of the challenge and all with good humour. 

The quote is one of my favourites about education and I like to think that over the last six years here at TBS Warsaw, I have managed to help generate some sparks. Best wishes for the future.
