Education • Introduction

 

Learning never stops

Education is not something that stops when you leave school. For everyone, learning continues far beyond the school gates - into the home, at work and during leisure time.

We all acquire basic, everyday skills and knowledge like following a recipe, using the internet or driving a car. Language skills are also important - encouraging better communication and understanding between cultures.

Take your time to learn new things, experience new ideas and develop simple creative skills to help enhance your own lifestyle and beautify your surroundings.

We will soon be adding useful educational features so please "watch this space". education
