AKDN | Kenya

The most important thing we can learn or teach at any school – in a world of perpetual change – is the ability to go on learning. None of us have all the answers – quite often we don’t even know what questions to ask. Nor can we discern the road ahead by looking in a rear-view mirror. Past lessons must constantly be renewed and reapplied, as we adapt to new technologies and new expectations.
