“Touchstones is a breath of fresh air that addresses deep learning, deep thinking and a whole approach to education, focusing on the whole learner as being an essential part of a community. Too often school is about individual success; I love, love the aspect of Touchstones which links the individual into the community, strengthening both the community and the individual.
