When looking at what counts most educationally, remember always the words of Dr Jim Eedle the first secretary for education in the Northern Territory.

They are words I have never forgotten for I heard him utter them in 1979 at a principals conference in Katherine.He said “schools are for children“. He also said that “structure of the system should always serve education’s function – which was to develop students and children to their fullest potential.What he said matters most; And it seems all too often that this advice has been forgotten. Dr Eedle has passed to his rest but his words will live with me forever.
