Every step of our lives is involved in learning. Every day, every waking minute, wherever we are, and however old we may be, we are still learning. Education is the key!
It is the key to our understanding, the foothold on which our ‘ladder of life’ is based. It fills
our minds to grow, our hearts to understand and our souls to be refreshed.
We all have a part to play in education, whether in our own lives or for our families.
In our country we have an education system which is free for all children from ages 4-18
years. In further education we have a system whereby young people can follow their hopes

learning programme whereby we are encouraged to find out about different aspects at
different times. Every day and every year can be a learning journey.
