Becoming : A Learning Process

From the movement of his birth, the child’s main concern is to make himself a person, to create his own personality. The process of becoming is the process of learning. And learning how to become a person is what life is all about. We in school will make an attempt to be aware that helping children to become all that they are capable of becoming is a way of life rather than merely a vocation. With Sir Herbert Read in Education through Art we recognise that the teacher” Learns his responsibility for the particle of life entrusted to his care, and as he learns he educates himself. The education of a pupil is thus always the self-education of the teacher.”
