    A message of Hope, Student Voice and Action

    How did Swedish student Greta Thunberg get the attention of students, governments and citizens around the world? She skipped school! As a Principal, this is about the last thing I want students to do, but I have to admit that it was an effective way to draw attention to the climate crisis.
