There are some things that you just can’t experience sat at a desk.
You can learn about mountains, you can look at photos of snow covered peaks. You can learn all about light reflections and mirror images. You can take part in lessons in physical education and practise your acrobatics and gymnastics. But nothing will beat the feeling of sand underneath you as you master a handstand in the sea breeze, or the air rushing past you as you judge and take a leap from a roof onto grass with no safety tested crash mat.
Some things you just need to get out into the real world to see, smell, hear, taste and feel!
What better way to learn about the world than to live in it, experience it and explore it?
As a society we need to accept that the whole world needs to be a child’s classroom, not a child’s classroom be their whole world!
