Face to Face with Success: Meet Gavin Keller
Imagine a primary school where there’s no homework, ever, where kids are taught grit, resilience and how to be decent adults. It’s just such a school that we are visiting this time on Face to Face With Success. Sun Valley Primary’s Principal, Gavin Keller talks about redefining education, why failure is actually a stepping stone to success, and how brain science can help us improve the way our kids learn.
“If the teacher knows how to touch the life of a young learner, and connect with them, and get them excited about learning, we could change the future of society.”— Gavin Keller
“The Reality is that our schools today look, sound, feel, dress and behave like schools 50 years ago, and unless we do something about it, we’re going to have a burnt out system.”— Gavin Keller
“If children can leave my school or my classroom, with a smile on their face, having enjoyed the day, and come running back the next day, that was for me a massive sense of success.”— Gavin Keller
