Learning Curve April 2021

This issue highlights ideas of justice, equality, liberty and fraternity – four very lofty ideals which have the power of creating a dynamic society, perhaps changing with the times, but always for the better. It is clear that an all-encompassing concept like citizenship cannot be taught at the macro-level: it has to begin with the family, the smallest yet most significant unit of society, spread concentrically to friends, strangers and finally to the country. This is why the school, especially in the primary years, is considered to be the best place to impress upon our children, who are already citizens at birth, what their attitudes could be if they want to ‘be the change they want to see’.
