Who am II'm a tourist of my own world; a tourist re-visiting the joys, pains, celebrations, frustrations.....that I had lived in my previous worlds. The ruins and remains exist as memories and feelings. I silently create and destroy my worlds without any one ever noticing - yes, silent big-bangs....

Caring School --> Caring Community

In Noticing, these Projects offer Authentic Opportunities to Develop Personal and Social Responsibility through Caring

They also give opportunities for young people to pursue Careers in Caring by working with one or multiple generations.

Paradigm ShiftIn this way Compassion shifts from the Global to the Personal

We develop a Culture of giving and receiving

This strong ethical foundation can only mean that Caring within the School and amongst its Young People can continue to spread into the Community
