15: Connection

A relationship in which a person, thing, or idea is linked or associated with something else.

The connection Treetops Montessori School is building with the extended community on this 30x30x30 project is just wonderful. As a member of the parent body, and a member of the Board of the School I can see the immediate benefits the project is having for the school.

The 30x30x30 project is raising awareness throughout the community to people who may never have heard of Treetops Montessori School. It is such a wonderful time for us to demonstrate how important community connection is to the school.

Did you know that Montessori encourages a community connection? Students are involved in various projects for the community from plantings on the Darlington Reserve to painting bus shelters in the area. The senior school students currently studying for their IB (International Baccalaureate) have a portion of their curriculum dedicated to the community.

In our current environment – constantly criticised for the lack of community involvement of young people (if you watch the news in any case), this connection is absolutely vital.

I am proud to be a Montessori parent and to be part of our very own School Community.
