REACH for the Stars! (Return to school)


We have faced a tough time over the last few months with the COVID-19 pandemic and it continues to be a challenge for us.

And yet we will not let it stop us from reaching our goals and reaching for the stars. 

Here are some quotes from a few amazing people to inspire us (do you have any inspiring quotes from your own role models?):

Jurgen Klopp


“if you want to have success in the future, you have to be ready to work now.” 


“I have only one understanding of development and of making success, and that’s by going step by step.”


Martin Luther King


“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.


Mala Yousafzai


“One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.”
