As long as I can remember, I have been drawn to the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol. I recall my parents watching it on television before putting my brothers and me to sleep on Christmas Eve. My grandmother would have it on in the background, when we visited her on Christmas Day. Now I tune in each Christmas after my own kids go to bed – perhaps looking for an annual reminder of the preciousness of life and the responsibility that comes with it.
“Food, glorious food!” I never really understood this line from the musical Oliver! until later in life. But it has become a touchstone for me, and sharing good food with our loved ones is even more important when our daily routines and holiday traditions are disrupted by the pandemic.
Reflections on Research: From Intuition to Intention
Dr. Sandra Boyes
Welcome to this edition of Teaching & Learning. Now falling under the purview of the Crescent Centre for Boys’ Education (CCBE), this newsletter is a perfect complement to CCBE’s focus on professional learning and research. Dedicated to discovering how boys learn best, the CCBE elevates the role of research in our school and fosters a community of inquiry, particularly through action research, to inform our practice.
