The future is bright

Published 1 year ago 11th September 2021 by Jamie O’Flaherty

Visiting schools this week reminded me once again about how talented our young adults are.
Whilst waiting to take some photographs and talk to teachers, I was in the corridors scanning the many successful school team photographs that hang on the corridor walls.

I’m always interested in the sports teams, but honours have been won by our secondary schools in just about everything.

It’s fascinating to see, and comforting too, knowing teenagers today are far more relaxed and happy going to school. It’s certainly a far cry from my time at school, a successful day back then was when you escaped the attention of anyone in authority.

The days of being told to ‘get in there and sit down and stay quiet’ appear to be gone and students are encouraged to express themselves, allowing them to feel far more confident.

They have different challenges nowadays of course, but it’s refreshing to see that they can confidently approach a teacher if they have concerns.

So the future is bright in this country, I have no doubt, well that’s if we can keep our young adults here. They are intelligent and confident and will be an asset to this country in future years.
