The ignorant man is not the unlearned, but he who does not know himself,
and the learned man is stupid when he relies on books, on knowledge and on authority to give him understanding.
Understanding comes only through self- knowledge,
which is awareness of one's total psychological process.
Thus education, in the true sense, is the understanding of oneself,
for it is within each one of us that the whole of existence is gathered.

Ich habe die Learn for Life School diesen September 2 Wochen lang besucht und hatte daher das Glück dieses wundervolle Projekt kennenlernen zu dürfen! Da ich als Medizinstudentin den motivationslosen Schul- und Uni-Alltag in Österreich gewöhnt bin, hat mich die Begeisterung, mit der die Kinder jede Minute in der Schule genießen, besonders berührt.

Ich hatte auch die Ehre den Kindern ein Grundverständnis für den Körper und Hygiene vermitteln zu dürfen und war beeindruckt von den kleinen Klassen, in der jedes Kind einzeln wahrgenommen wird.

Ein großartiges Projekt!

I visited the school this September and had the chance to get an impression of this wonderful project! As a medical student I’m used to the dull everyday life at Austrian university and so I was moved by the enthusiasm with which the children enjoy every minute in school.

I also had the honour to teach the children some basic understanding of hygiene and the human body and was impressed by the small classes, in which every child is perceived as an individual with its individual background.

A great project!
