Learning is Inspiring!
Welcome to The Lighthouse (Limassol, Cyprus), where learning is fun, flexible, meaningful and inspiring!
Beg, borrow or steal like an artist, but find a way for education to evolve! If evolution, in it’s infinite wisdom, teaches anything, it is…never be satisfied; evolve or perish.
Education needs to be dynamic, organic, indescribable and an empowering experience! It must seize the day while eyeing the decades. It must be challenged as much as it is exulted. It can never be perfected just as it can never be simply taught.
So our ambition is to ignite a fire for learning that is self-directed, constructively critical, socially conscious while engaging and encouraging.
We cannot promise infallibility but we can commit to discovering as many paths of success necessary so each child feels respected, valued, confident, clever, creative, capable and unique: Such is the light shining in the Lighthouse.
It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.
There are two educations. One should teach us how to make a living and the other how to live.
I don’t think there’s a kid in America, or anywhere in the world, who gets out of bed in the morning wondering what they can do to raise their state’s reading standards. They get out of bed, if they’re motivated, by their own interests and their own development.
Educating the mind without educating the heart, is no education at all.
Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.
Teachers open the door; you enter by yourself
Every student can learn, just not on the same day, or the same way.
