Monica Etherington, a Kindergarten teacher at Swan Hills School in Swan Hills, thinks children should know now some things that their parents only learned much later in life. To Ms. Etherington, a positive approach to a rapidly changing future requires that children be aware of the impact of human society on the environment. It also means that from an early age they should be comfortable with technology, and her students use the computer regularly. She provides opportunities for them to learn by play, organized activities and cooperation with others, while encouraging flexibility and the willingness to make the best out of every situation. Most of all, she hopes to instil in her students the confidence to say "I'll try" rather than "I can't."
