How refreshing to be asked to speak on the importance of childhood and play last week at Melbourne's Christ Church Grammar. So many parents and teachers attended to hear Kathy speak about the importance of childhood. That it isn't a mini adulthood, or adolescence. That children need to time to play, to explore and to not be hurried through their lives and education as if they are on a conveyor belt!!
It was wonderful to see such a great school providing such a holistic message to the community that a great education for children is about many things including play, childhood and the whole child.
