“And who would have told us that making paper balls, getting “gummets” stickers in English class, learning our nine times table, jumping hurdles in P.E., playing the violin, and drawing Christmas, would allow us to calculate integrals, write stories, solve chemical equations, study how cells work, understand and interpret texts by Plato, calculate the forces between the planets, and much more.

We have learnt to be critical, to never settle, and to improve ourselves day after day. They’ve taught us to develop our opportunities to the maximum, and to further enhance those which are most appropriate for us. And most importantly, we’ve discovered that with effort, we can go as far as we choose.”
